    Terrified

    If I see a scary movie, I let my mind run away with itself. I saw "Cloverfield" over the weekend. Now I am totally and utterly freaked out. I had to sleep alone the night after watching this movie, and I had to leave my tv on so it wasn't dark in my room. I literally go...

    Block Out the World

    We do this sometimes just being silly.  Pull the blankets up over our heads and it's just us...the rest of the world simply doesnt exist....

    Yep!

    I did this when I was a boy to overcome fears about the night sounds I'd hear. Now, I usually only do this in Winter so I can get warm! :-) :-/ Hehe Those blankets DO really feel nice, though....

    When...

    the bills need to be paid, my brother is being a b****, job rejection e-mails and letters filling the mailboxes, etc, etc, the first thing I do is take off my shoes and dive under the covers. Accompanied by a scream into the pillow.

    When there are monsters lurking in every shadow

    and strange noises coming from the street, what else would one do? Call me childish, but these things called blankets protect me from murderers, I swear! Or at least my most frightening imagination ;)

    I Don't Think Its "Hiding"

    but I like to be covered up when I sleep.  Extra pillows usually do the trick.  I love to sleep on and under pillows.

    Nice.

    Sometimes, when your life gets too tough and you need someone special to be, under a blanket is usually my favourite place to be. I somehow feel alone with my thoughts and so on. It's a nice feeling.
