An odd dream

Hopefully I can get someone trained in the arts of dream interpretation to stumble over this post…

My dream last night started out with me waking up and starting to get ready for work. Everything seemed completely normal, nothing out of place. Until I decided that I needed to shave before going to work (which is something I hardly ever do in the morning.) Not even half-way through the process of de-stubbling my face, I realized that I was already late for work. Panic sets in and I fall deeper into the dream. The only logical thing, apparently, was to jump in my car and proceed to finish shaving on the way there, which is less that a few minutes.

So the trip to work was pretty normal, except that for some reason the drive started on the complete opposite side of town from where I actually live. I remember thinking that that was pretty bizarre in the dream, but just shrugged it off. So I got to work, but somehow the 5 minute drive had made me almost an hour later, but I still wasn't finished shaving (you try shaving in your rear-view mirror while watching traffic, even in my dream I couldn't pull it off.)

My work.. it was completely different though. I ended up in some enormous bathroom, the likes of which I've never come across before. In fact, there was a huge conference room area (complete with vending machines) right in the middle of it. Somehow the lighting near all of the mirrors made it impossible to actually see myself in the mirror, so the task of shaving went unfinished. But while I was trying, for some reason people kept coming through. A tour was led through the bathroom, which was really odd since there was only one door, and they somehow continued through without going back out that door. A girl that I work with also made a point to come downstairs and enter this non-existent bathroom to further give me crap about my situation. All things considered, I was a bit entertained, both in the dream and out.

But now.. now I'm just wondering what the heck it was all about. It seems way too random, so there must be some rational explanation or meaning behind it. Anyone have any ideas?

    I probably have no idea and to tell you the truth, I haven't even read all this.

    Anyway, about dreams, try lucid dreaming.
    Might be the best thing to do. And you can explain your dreams like that. 🙂

    Good luck.

    Okay, I'll reply here.

    Lucid dreaming is not a tool.
    Just go here (as long as the site is up):

    Or if you're too lazy, I suggest you start with listening to this:

    Well, in a way, lucid dreaming is a tool for exploring the deeper reaches of the mind.. but I was actually referring to the tool you mentioned in your blog post – "Now, I have this idea for a simple tool that (at least I) would use and I am going to make it happen." –

    Ah, that's just me playing around on my blog. Sorry for misinterpreting you anyway.
    There is a follow-up already on my blog explaining what I meant by that.

    Hi, I thought I'd still answer here.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    Even though that's probably not the right mindset, that's not really ambitious. Just a thing I thought I would do in a day or two.

    I found your blog by twitter so I guess you're a part of the thirty day challenge too. That's a much cooler thing. 🙂
    Good luck in the challenge!

    I think it means you need some coffee and a rainbow cupcake.

    The first thought that came to mind was "I work with a rainbow cupcake".. but it'd only be funny if I said it TO him. *sigh*

    If you have cupcakes and coffee.. you'd best be bringing some my way.

    LOL. aww. can you lovingly call him your rainbow cupcake? That would really make me happy. Maybe cuddle a bit too?

    I do indeed have coffee. It's folgers though. Blagh. BUTtttt… we have a birthday boy here today and he brought rainbow cupcakes. I could not be a happier camper.

    I could.. but I have to wonder why that would make you happy. I would have thought that you'd want me to save that.

    Folgers is practically gourmet! MMMMMmmmmm! Or not. *shudder*
    I was a birthday boy. I bought myself a present. I might have put your name in the "from" spot. I dunno.

    Let's go camping!

    I bet you have enough cuddles for both myself AND your rainbow cupcake.

    What did I(you) get you?

    I'm totally down for camping!!!!!!! But only if we go somewhere that is 134% bugless. oh AND there has to be a shower. And no bears or lions. oh my.

    I'd rather not share them.. I'd feel.. betrayalish.

    It was a couple weeks early, because I was impatient.. but it was one of these .. oh so shiny.

    Hmm.. no lions? That might be hard around here. I'll work on it. We should go tomorrow.

    I know….the lions are just ALL over the place around here, aren't they? I almost hit 2 on my way back from lunch.

    I'd rather you not share them either….but who would I be to take you away from your cupcake?

  13. sparx said,

    Almost? sheesh.. I'm lucky if I can get home with less than 3 in my trunk. Maybe there are less way up there in the north country?

    I'm not sharing. They are yours. End of that.

    My new apartment has no lions.. just FYI 😉 .. right.. behaving.

    You take the lions home with you?


    It seems your comment # has increased. hmm. wonder why.
