Deja vu, you are a tantalyzing mistress

I had deja vu a couple times the other day. It was over some real mundane stuff -- a document I was explaining to someone at work, an e-mail I was reading, etc.

It's a simultaneously frustrating and wonderful moment, when your subconscious momentarily clears its throat. I feel like I teeter on the edge of a great precipice of understanding, only to have the promise of something great disappear as soon as I begin to realize it's there.

It's the mental equivalent of finger-cuffs: The harder you try to get there, the more difficult it becomes.

Is it just me, or have I made that joke before?

Next time check if you're really tired...I've heard that deja vu happens when you're so tired that the subconscious part of your brain sees/experiences something split seconds before the rest of your head does. That's why it's all so familiar- because you remember it from nano-seconds ago. Because you remember it from nano-seconds ago.
