Weekend Assignment #110: Strange Dreams

Hmmm, John Scalzi at By the Way has an interesting weekend assignment...

Weekend Assignment #110: Strange Dreams Well, that's something that most of us have had at one time or another. ..what's strange is that we dream at all!

There was one dream I had over and over for years.. I can't say I am unhappy that I finally don't have it anymore.

That one concerned elementary school... or at least it happened in the playground of my elementary school... it was always the same.. I was hiding under a wooden box and peeking out.. kids were running and screaming and airplanes were buzzing the school shooting at it. i could hear the kids screaming as they ran to try to hide and i was terrified. Tell me THAT isn't strange!!

Quite often I have dreams that are nothing more than conversations with people.. many of them actors or somehow in the industry.. lately it's included John Rhys Davies, I assume that's because he will be at the convention I will go to at the end of July. In this dream I am sitting in the hotel restaurant waiting for my dinner to be served. Mr Davies walks in and asks for a table alone, the lady tells him she will have to look because they are mostly filled. Having overheard this, I tell the woman that if she wants to move me to share with others that Mr Davies can have my table. (having helped at many cons and shows I realize the guests need some time alone!) She offers the suggestion to Mr Davies who then smiles and asks if I'd mind if he shared my table. (duh.. like i am going to say no? ) He sits down and we have a great conversation, just talking of nothing in particular. The funny thing is when I have these sort of dreams I could wake and tell you verbatim what we talk about.. but I won't here.. it's never very exciting.

However, Creations Cons aren't "autograph shows" so the chance of saying more then "hello" and "thank you" to Mr. Davies is highly unlikely.. maybe that's why I dream the situation differently.. this way.. I have it all!

Dreaming makes anything possible!....

Oops! I nearly forgot.. Extra Credit: Name a favorite song with the words "dream" or "sleep" (or some variation of those words).

Boy, Howdy.. this will date me! heh.. ok, here it is!

Man that is one heck of a scary dream. I'm curious, did you hate to go to school?

This sounds like an interesting weekend assignment, but ever since the "You know What", I haven't did a Monday Photo Shoot or a Weekend Assignment.

No joke: I once had a dream I met God. My family and myself died and when I met him, he asked us if we had gifts for him. My family all had gifts for him, and when he came to me, I gave him socks. I have know idea what it meant, but it was a very memerable dream. It seemed kind of real. It had me asking myself what do I have to give to someone who could possibly have everything. I should be posting this in my journal huh?
