The Zombie State

DPers often say they feel like a zombie. I too use this word to describe how I feel at times. I am wondering if you guys can describe to me what feeling like a zombie feels like? Just wondering if it's the same type of feeling. Today I was without the zombie feeling for a few hours and then it rather suddenly came over me with no obvious trigger. I hadn't felt it in a while so I really wasn't expecting it. I'm not going to describe how it feels for me because I want to see what you guys come up with first.

Just an observation: I find it interesting that we feel the need for descriptions of descriptions of how people feel just to check and see if we feel the same way. :D

Feeling like a zombie for me is like I'm half asleep, running on auto-pilot. It's similar to a vivid dream, where I'm aware of what I'm doing, but it's not like I'm really choosing to do it. It just happens. This happens at work sometimes, and sometimes I'll fight it, but I still find things later that I usually do all the time, and somehow missed while in "Zombie mode."
That's not a completely accurate description, but it comes close.

And after writing the above, I went back and read Scattered's description (didn't want to taint my own first) and I can say that his is pretty dead on to what I think it feels like (intoxicated, why didn't I think of that?).
