Sarah: Sleep Cycle, Part 2

Welcome to Sleep Cycle, Part 2, otherwise known as My Friend Might Be Undead.

E and I are still fascinated by this iPhone App and compared sleep charts. And let me tell you, the scientific term for E's sleep pattern is "bizarro". I've included some sample charts to explain.

A normal night should consist of 90 minute cycles between dreaming and deep sleep. Your phone registers these cycles based on you moving very little during deep sleep and then moving more while dreaming. That was your lesson for the day. Now here's a typical night for E:

I can only assume that someone knocked on her coffin and startled E at 6:50 am.

E claims that she wakes up several times during the night. But according to her sleep graphs (and every night is like this, you guys), she must hold perfectly still, eyes open and blinking ominously. I am concerned for her well-being.

On the other hand, she would be an ideal bed mate. Until you rolled over and saw her staring at you, immobile but awake.

The only time I make drastic movements is when I stumble (which is clearly hard to do WHILE SLEEPING) and when I do jazz hands while speaking.

Oh, that's my problem. I have that sleep pattern because I've been doing JAZZ HANDS.

Ha! You should DEFINITELY film yourself. That? Is something the world should see.

So, Dave and I just started using this app too! And guess what? My sleep patterns look JUST like E's!
