I of course survived the tidal wave and yes I even whooped some zombie a$$.
Last week it was bears eating everyone. I had to wake myself up from that one. It was too scary. :'(
Anyone else study in bed?
Strangely enough I ran into crazy dreams as well.
I personally have made them die down by moving out theoretical study from that time of
night. Now its Polgar's 5334 before bed...
I used to enjoy Keres and Kotov before bed (The art of the Middle Game)
...yet somehow it yields uncomfortable dreams (as the author aforementioned)
When having trouble sleeping, i go through "Chess for Amateurs" by Reinfeld, and
basically just try and read through the mini's as far as i possibly can without a board
before I lose my spot. I usually fall asleep within only a few attempts
