The Friday Five

1. What was the last dream that you had about?

This morning I had a dream about a guy from Without A Trace last night (coincidentally the same guy who played Steve on Sex and the City, but in my dream he was his freaky/alien obsessed character from WIT). We were on a small school bus with a lot of kids who were mentally impaired (a handicapped bus? I don't know) and we ended up at the house of my best friend, Leah, from when I was five. Then I was in their kitchen and her mom was showing me family photos. When I woke up, my hand was asleep, which was odd.

2. Does it hold any significant meaning to you?

Not really. Leah just had a baby and my mom and I were talking about her last night and then I watched the TV show. I think everything just got scrambled up in my overwhelmed brain and came out all smooshed together. My brain is a blender!

3. Do you dream in color or black and white?

Color. Always. I have extremely vivid dreams, but I also have lucid dreams 90% of the time, and I can (and do) wake myself up (usually by thinking in the dream, "OPEN YOUR EYES!").

4. What is the most frightening dream you ever had?

I have dreams where I am SCREAMING at my parents (usually my dad) and telling him I hate him. They are really upsetting and scary, especially b/c I am so close to my parents. I think it comes from me trying to break away from that in my subconscious or something. Who knows what Freud would say. But I don't care because he was bat-crackers.

5. Is there one dream that stays clear in your mind despite the fact it was more than a few years ago?

I clearly remember a recurring dream I had when I was about four where I was running through a corn field and there was a witch in a tepee. It was very Children of the Corn, mixed with a little Wizard of Oz and clearly also some Thanksgiving themes (corn, tepees).

It's official, I am a freak in my dreams! (and sometimes, let's face it, in life too)

because I said so
