oh my god...I left the alien thing out to avoid being too weird but the ceiling above me while waking was like lighted...my mind just made it out to be aliens. when I said the furniture was distorted they had sort of a lighted glow to them (like covered with that glow in the dark stuff) I guess it gives a similar hallucination. I read about it some on wikipedia, they somewhat recommend melatonin...might try that out as this has been happening pretty frequently (20 yrs old).
Very weird to be awake and dreaming...I love dreams, but not the awake kind. Glad to hear I am not totally losing my mind, guess life can just be weird.
