Do You Ever Have Déjà Vu?

R.a.n.t. of week 02/02/13
♫...then put your little hand in mine. There ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb.♪
I just want to smash my alarm clock sometimes.........

Sorry everyone, this entry seems vaguely familiar for some reason. Oh good grief. I just looked over my past r.a.n.t.'s and noticed I already did an entry on alarm clocks a few weeks back. I have to admit, I was thinking earlier I had written about this topic but couldn't really remember when. It felt like simple déjà vu moment so I shrugged it off. How many times has that happened to you? You are standing somewhere about to perform some task when you get this feeling all over like you've already done it. Or it feels like you are in the exact same situation as you were once before. It's an interesting feeling to say the least. As a science fiction nerd, I could write all sorts of stories describing this. Oh wait, I did. In my series Writers Block. The main hero Erick, is talking to his friend about feeling he experienced a form of déjà vu in the early morning, but as though he was realizing it for the first time. Later in the story he realizes why. As it turns out, during the course of the story he's forced to time travel and accidentally meets up with himself in the early morning. He convinces himself he's having a dream. Suddenly he realizes he's experiencing a true form of déjà vu.

Kind of silly I know, but you try to explain déjà vu. The most annoying thing about this is not knowing exactly what it is. Certainly you must have experienced this before. When did this happen to you?

"Do you ever have déjà vu Mrs. Lancaster?"
"I don't think so, but I could check with the kitchen."


  1. Boy I felt like I read this before!!!

  2. Didn't you leave this comment once before?

  3. Groundhog day as it comes to JA Scott?

  4. I have de ja vu about rhymes sometimes - both the topics and the rhyme pairs. I've written stanzas before realizing that I'm repeating myself... but then I have to start over. :P

  5. Wow, I've done the same thing Rachel. There have been poems I've started to write and I thought, "Did I write this already"?
    Another time I woke up and a poem hit me and to this day I often wonder if it's just a poem I heard somewhere else, or I was just experiencing a 'deja vu' sort of moment.
