Dream

I dreamt last night that my mom made me go to church with her, but instead of a church service there was a special event going on, co-sponsored by the local Rotary club and by Lord Voldemort. In this event, everyone in the Rotary club had to get up and talk about something they had done or something they were good at. The second guy on the bill was talking about an opera he had written about accountancy. It was super boring and Robin and I were going to cut out, but my mom wouldn't let me leave and Voldemort...

Dream

I dreamt last night that my dad and I were in WWII Germany and the Führer, Margaret Thatcher, was holding some kind of big rally. Part of this rally was some sort of demonstration of Nazi power where they were going to publicly feed ham to Jews. Through some kind of mistaken identity, my dad and I were among the group selected. Of the other "victims", many nobly refused the ham even though they were starving, but my dad and I just went ahead and ate it. "He likes ham. He might want some more," I said to the Nazis....

Dream

I dreamt that I traveled for hours to go to an Alexander McCall Smith book signing at a county fair in Indiana. I was apparently the only person who had asked for his autograph, so he wanted to chat. I just wanted to get the autograph and leave, but he kept trying to make conversation: "So, you came all the way from Ohio! How far is that? And how long have you lived there? Do you like it?". I had also neglected to bring a book or anything, so I just got his autograph on some random scrap of paper...

Dream

Um, who wouldn't be starstruck at this?I dreamt last night that I met Darren Criss at some kind of work function. I wanted to be cool but I was excited and got all flustered and starstruck. I wanted to tell him that I'd seen all the StarKid productions but instead it came out, "I watch you on the Internet all the time!". All of my coworkers groaned, either because it sounded so creepy and I had embarrassed the whole office or because they had all been talking amongst themselves about how I would not know how to properly greet a...

Dream

I dreamt last night that I was in this giant furniture store that spanned acres and acres, with a river and trees and plants right inside the store. I met some of my fellow shoppers and then all of a sudden we were in an ensemble romantic comedy (à la Love Actually) with hilarious misunderstandings and estrangements and reunions. And I, as the spunky best friend, hooked my do-gooder volunteersy friend up with Kyle MacLachlan, who had just been to Ghana with Semester at Sea and was obsessed with that country. Then they set off to go build houses in...

Dream

A few nights ago I had a dream where my friends and I all robbed a bank, and I was the only one who got caught, because the rest of them wore masks or kept their heads down, but the security camera at the bank was positioned just right so that it picked up my face through the getaway car's sunroof. We were all in high school and we just went to class as usual. The school paper had identified me as the person on the security camera, but the cops hadn't come for me yet. I knew that at...

Dream

I dreamt last night that my dad and I were driving along Platt Road when I saw a giant tapir by the side of the road. I made my dad turn around and go around the block somehow so that we could see it again and I could take a picture, but apparently the tapir was a sort of were-tapir or shape-shifter, so sometimes it was a tapir and sometimes it was human and sometimes it was somewhere in between. When we got back around, we got out of the car to take a picture and it turned part-human and...

Dreams

I kept dreaming and waking up last night, so - although there are portions of these dreams that are unrelated - I've divided them into three parts. Parte the First I was riding a bus with Adrian Monk¹. I was also a TV detective or mystery-solver of some sort with my own show, maybe sort of like the one on Medium. I looked like Laura Roslin from Battlestar Galactica though. Somehow - whether through a Groundhog Day thing or because we both had psychic powers - Monk and I both knew that he was about to get shot by a...

Dream

I dreamt last night that my family went to visit my aunt and uncle in Virginia. We either walked the whole way there or drove most of the way and walked once we were in town. We were walking down this street and about 12 out of 15 people on the street were wearing University of Michigan t-shirts. Then we saw this guy in an Ohio State jacket and said, "Oh look, there's someone to break the trend!" but then he took it off and was wearing a Michigan sweatshirt underneath. Then my parents asked for directions from some teenaged...

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Yesterday, a friend mentioned something about having to have blood drawn and I almost responded, "I have to get a whole bunch of blood drawn to test for different things and they said that they couldn't use the same blood for the different tests so I'd have to get, like, 6 vials drawn." Then I remembered that I went to the eye doctor the day before and he said nothing at all about blood and I don't think I've been to another doctor in at least four months (and that was the dentist). So apparently I dreamt about all that...

Dream

I dreamt last night that I was on some sort of tour (might have been a study abroad site visit, or just a group tour) in Abu Dhabi with my dad. We went to this museum where there was a big mural on the wall of Gerald Ford, so my dad was talking excitedly to the curator, who was a big fan of President Ford's and also a chronicler of local unsolved mysteries and supernatural phenomena. I don't know where my dad went, but there was a section of the dream where I was in the employee-only area of some...

Dreams

I dreamt last night that my family and I were driving north across the Mackinac Bridge (for the uninformed, this is the bridge that connects the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan) and then next thing I knew, we were taking a ferry into Sydney Harbor in Australia (but I couldn't find the Opera House anywhere because there were too many amusement park rides on the shore). We got off the boat and then we were in Turkey, and we were mad because the airline had lost our bags. Then I realized I had no idea how long this trip...

We huddle close, and hang on to a dream

I dreamt last night that I was going somewhere with President-Elect Obama¹ and a big entourage of people in an old jalopy. Something happened (it isn't clear now and I don't remember if it was in the dream) that resulted in Obama hitting his head and being knocked unconscious. He was lying on the floor of the back seat of the jalopy and everyone was trying to wake him up with smelling salts, shaking him, slapping his face, and nothing was working. I said, "Well, this works in the movies," and leaned in to kiss him and when I got...

Dream

In the first part of my dream, I had this cool house in the middle of nowhere in the woods, but people kept dropping in unexpectedly and popping up in different rooms of the house. They had no boundaries, but I didn't care too much because the house was so isolated that I was lonely. The only problem was trying to get people to leave me alone long enough to take a shower. There was this sort of insane (homeless?) lady who was super nice to me and just wanted to take care of me. At one point I went...

Dream

I listened to this song right before I went to bed last night and as I lay there trying to fall asleep, the song was in my head. Then I dreamt that I was unable to say the word Australia without prefacing it with "shiny, new". I would say that I probably talk about Australia at work more than the average person (except maybe someone who works in Australian government/diplomacy or something), so when I was advising students, I would say things like, "If you want to study in an English-speaking country, you might want to consider looking at...

Dreams

When I left work on Friday I was horribly stressed out and looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I did get to relax during the day, but I never got quite as much sleep as I'd hoped because I kept having crazy dreams that woke me up in the middle of the night. Saturday night, after watching The Dark Knight, I dreamt that a fellow study abroad advisor and I were in a helicopter, flying over this watery area that was like a man-made amusement-park "river". We and the other people in the helicopter all had life vests on and...

I dreamt last night that I was in middle school. I had tried out for the lead in a musical, but the same girl got the part who ALWAYS got the lead in musicals (not in real life, where we didn't put on any musicals in middle school - just in the dream). I was upset because the drama teacher never showed any indication he'd even considered anyone else. Robin and I were talking about this as we left school to walk home, but I realized I'd left my jacket in my locker. So I went back to the school...

Dream

It's been a while since I've posted about a dream, but I remembered so much detail from this one I had to record it! I dreamt last night that I was living with my college roommate in a one-room apartment somewhere in a town near water (in my dream it was still Srahtown, but Srahtown happened to be near water). The apartment was all one room, but it was very large, so I guess it was more of a loft. Is that what a loft is? For some reason even though we had all this space, we still had our...

Dream

I dreamt that I lived in this neighborhood in Ann Arbor that doesn't really exist but has shown up in my dreams before in the past. I think it's based on Pittsfield Village, mixed with the neighborhood in Ypsilanti where my friend Shannon used to live. Anyway, my family was looking out the window when a ball of fire came out of the sky and set fire to a patch of our neighbors' lawn. People kept coming over and trying to stomp it out, then they'd catch fire themselves, then spread it to other parts of the lawn. We kept...

I had a dream! A dream about you, baby

I dreamt last night that I was invited to a dinner by a college friend I haven't seen in years. It was a huge dinner and I think it was held at my mom's church. At one point, my college friend attracted everyone's attention and got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend. "This is stupid," I loudly announced, "They're already married." Then I stomped out of the room. They are married in real life, but they weren't in the dream, and apparently my dream-self was more in touch with the real world than with the dream-world. I...

I have dreamed thee too long, never seen thee or touched thee but known thee with all of my heart

I had a two-layer dream last night where I dreamt (within the dream) that I was at the opening day of a Beatles museum and I was some kind of special guest. John gave me a tour and a very young George made eyes at me. One of them was in love with me, but I don't remember now which one it was. I must have seen Paul somewhere too, because when I "woke up" from the dream within the dream, I told my mom that I'd dreamt I'd seen all of the Beatles except Ringo. I didn't remember any...

Today all my dreams will come true

I dreamt last night that I was in a Catholic church, dressed in a frumpy dress and a choir robe, and everyone was expecting me to help with Communion. I don't know why, because I'm not even eligible to take Communion in a Catholic church. I complained loudly about this but no one cared. Someone asked me if I was a novitiate¹, which offended me no end. I shouted, "No! I don't know why I'm dressed like this!" Then later they made me hand snacks out to the old people and children in the congregation. These horrible kids took all...

Dream

I had a dream last night where I befriended a very insecure miniature horse. It was hard to win the horse over, but eventually it came to love me. Then someone brought their baby bunnies over to where we were, and just sort of dumped a box of them onto the ground so that the soft, velvety baby bunnies tumbled all over each other. My miniature horse friend took a liking to the baby bunnies and was petting them (I don't know how you pet something when you have hooves, but it made perfect sense in the dream). The bunnies...

Dream

I dreamt last night that I was both watching and - at times - in the movie The Departed, which had Jessica Simpson as the female lead. In this dream version of The Departed, there was a twist at the end where it turned out everyone had been committing cannibalism all along. The dream was so vivid that it took me a long time after I woke up to convince myself that that's not how The Departed actually ended....

I dreamt that I was in Ann Arbor and that Michigan Stadium was on the corner of Hill and State. Outside the stadium, there were a LOT of taco stands, including one that catered exclusively to fans of the visiting team, and had the OSU logo all over it. I went down into a subway stop right near there, but then came right back up. I don't remember now what happened down there - if I decided not to take the subway or if in my dream, as in real life, it turned out Ann Arbor didn't have a subway...

I dreamt I went to a coffee shop where Jamelah was my barista. She made me my drink, set it in front of me, then said, "I can't sell this to you." I was really annoyed because the drink was within reach and she was denying me! She said it was because she couldn't make change for whatever I had (how did you know I didn't have any small bills, Jamelah? How did you know?). Then she wouldn't accept my credit card. Finally she decided she could break my large bill, but I wasn't going to like my change. She...

Dream

I had a nightmare last night where I found another Chinese restaurant in srahtown. It's not that I dislike Chinese food - it's just that Chinese and Mexican are all the "ethnic" food we've got in town and I think we could stand to diversify. I was driving around srahtown with my family and kept finding all of these stores and restaurants that I think are standard for srahtown in my dreams, although they don't exist in real life. In my dreams, srahtown seems to be an old-timey Wild West town that is going to be a ghost town at...

I had a dream last night where I had just moved into a new apartment across the street from my parents' house. In the dream, I woke up at 7:30 and had to be at work at 8, but friends and family kept coming into my house to slow me down and I felt it was very important to put all of my welcome mats out before I left for work, which took a long time because I had a seemingly endless supply of welcome mats and doors to put them in front of. The owners of the apartment hadn't...

I told everyone at work yesterday that I called in sick yesterday morning because I baked cookies on Sunday night and sampled my wares a little too much. This is the truth, but it is not the whole truth. As a result of my late-night sugar binging, my blood sugar dropped during the night and I woke up a zombie. Normally when I wake up with low-blood-sugar-zombie syndrome, I just eat some breakfast, take my pills and get on with my morning (or I assume I have the flu because I'm stupid and I forget sometimes that I am now...

I had a dream last night where I was in an episode of Ugly Betty where the sky turned dark all of a sudden and wild animals went wild and were tearing through the parking lot of the strip mall where Betty, her boyfriend and I had been shopping. Betty's wonderful boyfriend (not Henry, but clearly he was supposed to be as lovable as Henry) broke up with her because she couldn't adequately express her feelings, so she threw a handful of cigarettes at him. Then we had to walk-run to the car because everyone except the three of us...

Bedroom problems

My smoke detector decided to start dying around 4am this morning. I lay there, hoping that it would give up the ghost altogether or that the sharp little staccato "BEEP"s would space themselves out long enough for me to fall back asleep and sleep through the night. Unfortunately neither of these scenarios occurred so I eventually dragged myself out of bed and replaced the battery. I could have been lazy and just taken the old battery out, but then I wouldn't have been able to fall back asleep for fear that a fire would spontaneously break out while I was...

Robert Altman was still alive and was building an ark (I'm sure this was influenced by James Cameron's Jesus tomb movie thing). He held a big press conference to announce it and somehow I got to go. Everyone stood around discussing it and I was of the opinion that it was a bad idea, because the cats would eat the rats and so on. Also, there seemed to be no indication that an ark was going to be needed. Unfortunately, I woke up before Altman really got going on his speech, so I never found out why we needed an...

I read this introduction to Battlestar Galactica last night in the hopes of understanding all the hype (since everyone seems to be watching it now, and not just my nerdy very very hip boyfriend). I didn't really understand it any more than I've understood anything else I've seen about the show, but then I had a dream where I was in the show (which I have never watched). First I was in a meeting where everybody there was two different models of Cylons - one that looked like some kind of nasty reptilian beast like from Alien and the other...

I dreamt last night that there was a tribe of cannibals living on Mackinac Island. You could visit their settlement and the museum on its grounds. We went to the museum, which was very expensive, and my dad crossed the velvet ropes in order to look more closely at the caption on a photo on the wall. This angered the cannibal docents, who started growling and moving toward him, so he returned to the other side of the ropes and we went on to the gift shop, which was also very expensive. Stupid cannibals, taking all of our money! But...

I dreamt last night that Britney Spears was one of my eight brothers and sisters. But she was clearly an unfit mother, so we were the ones who had to call all over the place, trying to find a private school for Sean Preston. They say that dreams are a window to your unconscious and that things that appear in your dreams are symbols of the things you're really concerned about. So it would seem that somewhere in the back of my mind, I am very very concerned about the well-being and education of little Sean Preston Spears-Federline. As we...

On the way I crossed a street behind this girl who was talking to her friend about studying abroad. I interrupted them and gave her all kinds of advice and she followed me as I walked toward the lecture, then she was going to have to find her way back to civilization on her own....

I dreamt last night that instead of living miles from Ohio's border with Indiana, I lived miles from Ohio's border with Italy. My family took a wrong turn and ended up in Ravenna, Italy, so we checked out a gift shop, which was owned by an old Amish lady. My grandma turned out to be chillin' in the café there. I looked over the things for sale in the gift shop, like "Greatest Hits of Ireland" and "Greatest Hits of Spain" CDs, but I didn't have any Euros. Then we went out to watch the harness races. I have never...

I dreamt last night that my whole family went to Paris. We were going to show the exchange student the view from some tall building, so we got in the elevator to go up as high as we could. Just as the elevator was about to leave, Billy Bob Thornton and his entourage got on to go to the penthouse. There was some kind of elaborate locking mechanism for getting to the penthouse, so they started engaging that, then Billy Bob wandered off the elevator. We waited for, like, fifteen minutes, then I got off the elevator and found Billy...

I dreamt last night that I was in Arabic class and hadn't done the homework. AND I was eating an enormous bowl of cereal and spilled it all over the floor. Then a girl in my class and I were apparently cousins and we were staying with our huge extended family in a house in the country (probably inspired by watching Jeeves & Wooster on TV last night) full of aunts who cackled at us. I believe there was some kind of scavenger hunt going on, and the cackling aunts liked to change everybody's bedrooms around without telling anyone. Later...

I showed up in the office and told them my ultra-secret method for getting more people to watch NBC: start every single show with a sex scene. "That will really catch people's attention," I explained. Next I was at the place where they film Saturday Night Live and I found out that starting this season, they were going to take me out of the credits at the beginning where they introduce each cast member.

Apparently it's not cool to tell your dreams to the Internet. To that I say "Suck it, Internet, you're going to read my dreams or else skip on to the next entry! Boo-yeah!" "Boo-yeah" has, unfortunately, become my catchphrase of the weekend. I dreamt that I went to a fanciful land like Narnia. There were about eight of us in the group, including apete and his quadruplet brother and sisters and Rose (and possibly Bernard too) from Lost. We were all lead by some bearded guy who was sort of like Zeke from Lost. We went to this fanciful land...

We were all sitting around in the audience seats (which doesn't make any sense because the Globe doesn't have theatre seating) and waiting for things to get started. Sway and Gedeon were there too, but I don't remember seeing Taylor anywhere. We had to organize ourselves into pairs or groups of three (I don't think this was for singing purposes, as the...

It involved huge Esther Williams-esque musical synchronized swimming numbers (I mean really huge, like thousands and thousands of people) and Michael collecting George Michael and Maeby from the swimming thing, dragging them home to see Rita's...

Later the whole family was on this bus full of tourists and we went to some market where I was having a good old time speaking French to a saleslady and some other American tourist. We ran into Robin's mom, who had missed her bus, so we...

I just had a dream where I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, AWESOME!. So I think that's enough reason to be blogging it in the middle of the night (before I forget too much of it). Unfortunately, a lot of it seems to hinge on being familiar with Huron High School and the works of Christopher Brookmyre. So... my sister might like it. There was a siege at Huron High School. I'm not sure how we knew it was going on, since we didn't see any of the bad guys. I may have been getting...

I don't remember my dream from last night, but I did remember a dream yesterday that I'd had earlier in the week. It's been a busy week for my subconscious! I was participating in the Ironman Triathlon and my main rival was Lance Armstrong. One of the events involved swimming out to an old rowboat (this sounds more like summer camp than the Ironman, but oh well). I beat Lance there and discovered that the rowboat was full of people from SI....

I remembered a lot more when I first woke up this morning, but I didn't get around to writing anything down.

In the middle of my haircut, the stylist took a break so I went browsing around the store. I think I was hiding from some people I hated and I remember a big deli counter with a lot of different kinds of ham. When I came back, the stylist had left for the day and...

I dreamt that I got a job as a teacher in Utah. Agnès and apete were also teachers there - Agnès was a Mormon and apete was in the small minority of gentiles (I believe that between teachers and students there were about 10). I tried to be good and tried to fit in, but eventually it was too much and I exploded. I stood up in an assembly and yelled about how I hated some of them and I liked some of them and I loved some of them but I couldn't keep up the charade and pretend to...

Before I go to bed tonight, I want to record the dream I had last night: I was staying in a cabin in the woods with my very large family. I went off somewhere (maybe to the mall, because part of my dream took place at the mall but I'm not sure where that was) and when I came back, I had to cross a river to get back to the cabin. I came to the bridge and it was covered with these savage orange raccoons. I decided to go to the next bridge, but the raccoons were there, too....

I had a very frustrating dream last night where I was shopping for a shell to wear under my suits for my job interviews. I was at Briarwood and would go from store to store, failing and getting more frustrated. At Ann Taylor (which was strangely coed), the smallest size they had was 5 and the salesperson made me try it on even though I knew it wouldn't fit. At Macy's (there's no Macy's at Briarwood!) they didn't have any shells, but the saleswomen were trying to convince me to get a lingerie top instead. I told them that it...

What I don't like about remembering my dreams is when they affect my real life. During the course of my dream last night, a bunch of my friends rented some kind of beach house, we got trapped there (in a rainstorm?), there may have been some kind of argument about Elmer's Glue and people kept walking in on me in the bathroom.

It didn't occur to me that if I left them there, they would quickly be buried and never found again. Philippe was there, skiing away. He always seems to show up in my dreams that take...

Inspired by my post about the similarity between Vichy Sundays and Art Fair, my subconscious decided to supply me with an even better comparison: Football Saturdays. I was driving my car in Ann Arbor, but I was having trouble getting anywhere because pedestrians were taking over the whole street. "I've lived here... twenty-three years!" I exaggerated, as if that would impress them. It didn't. "Maybe you should get out more!" someone yelled back. I got free of the pedestrian hordes and continued along my way, but ended up at Michigan Stadium. I saw two of my students, Rémy and Eric,...

I dreamt night-before-last that I was walking down the street and this guy en rollers with ski poles started harassing me and skating very tight circles around me. I got mad, tore the ski poles out of his hands, and pushed him off balance, so that he fell on the ground. He just smiled in a particularly evil way, then people started yelling at me. Why had I attacked this fine young man for no reason? His dad was upset because he would never play hockey again - but he hadn't even broken anything! They started demanding recompensation for his...

I was in the rue de Paris with Renata and Jennifer, just chatting, when a big mob came and turned down the rue Dacher.

They were milling about in the street, and we kept expecting the police to come, or at least for a passing police car to spot the mob. But they didn't, so I called the police, then...

Later I was in an English class with Jennifer and Renata. The students didn't understand what the teacher was saying and she was teaching them things that were wrong, so they turned to me and asked me to take over the class.

I dreamt earlier this week that Alex and I were in London and I left him to go buy bread at Piccadilly Circus (?), but it started to rain, so I ducked under some kind of shelter. One by one, the surviving members of Monty Python took shelter with me and we started talking. They liked me so much, they decided to adopt me as a sort of mascot. When I went back to the hotel/apartment, Alex was wearing a kilt and wanted to show me all of the used books he had bought from the restaurant downstairs. Last night,...

Apparently it was the Worst Avalanche Ever. As soon as the snow settled, the Jews came out with their banners, claiming that the avalanche was a sign from God that Israel belonged to them. Then the Muslims appeared with their banners, saying that it was a sign that Palestine belonged to them. Then the Christians showed up with their banners - not to put a claim...

When we were done, we sat down to have a cup of tea with Philippe, who was speaking very bad English. I am disappointed that my dream was not as insane and uninterpretable as usual.

I refused, but then I met the kid, who was fourteen and very serious and mature. I liked him, so I took the job.

The cult members were all rather grizzled woodsmen with guns.
