Icon95 Things you learned in your dreams last night

Snopes drives a black 1963 Dodge Dart (apparently my subconcious has conflated him with Tom Magglozi from Car Talk). When he parked it at the very top of one of San Francisco's famously steep hills, forgot to set the parking brake, and it started to slowly roll down the hill, I was able to stop it from rolling away simply by grabbing the door handle and pushing it back up the hill. Too bad I wasn't able to stop it before it bumped into the car in front of it, triggering a chain reaction where that car starts to roll, hits the car in front of it, sending it rolling, and so on until every car on the street is rolling down the hill.

Cicadas can grow to be about a foot and a half long, with big round eyes the size of ping-pong balls. Bug spray won't kill them, but will drive them out of the house.

Everyone in my extended family is gathering at my grandmother's house to watch my dog catch mushrooms.

Last night/this morning was kind of dreamtastic. I kept waking up every couple of hours, and every time I went back to sleep, I would have a new dream. Highlights include:

I have a cat named Tree Ring

There is a large cult based in the woods behind my house

I can jump start my car with an iPhone dongle

Imagine the sound that an 18 inch cicada would make.

I won't be able to find sugar snap peas for my recipe in the magnificent new grocery store. Not only that, but they won't have any acceptable substitutes either. But they will have things that look like a cross between a zucchini and a carrot.

There is an international organization that runs a combination post office, library, plant nursery, and home goods store, with locations all over the globe. They know what to do about the fungus on my plant that I have kept in my car for a couple of months.

My mom somehow scored a backstage pass to the Emmys where she met both Michelle Obama and Gillian Anderson (the latter of which will win an Emmy during the ceremony).

Later, while sharing her experiences at the Emmys, my mom, frustratingly, won't really remember what she said to Gillian Anderson and will only say that Michelle Obama was critical of the Kardashians.

Janis Joplin is my friend and I can help her overcome her drug and alcohol addiction.

I'm sure it would be loud, but the live one in my dream didn't make any noise. I was in the house where I grew up, and found a dead giant cicada in the kitchen. My cat Ash was there with me, and he kept meowing and looked rabid for some reason. That's when I found the other one under the sofa. I was freaked out by it and didn't want to touch it or stomp on it, so I had to find bug spray, which, as I mentioned above, only worked to drive it out the front door.

You might want to rethink the night on the town, though.

Not sure, but I think it was a rehash of that dream where cats and Baader-Meinhof took over the house and I got sick of it and left. As I left I heard one of the members of Baader Meinhof (at least I think it was them and not one of the cats) yell "Look out!" I looked up just in time to realize I was being beamed up by an alien.

Yes, I have been on meds much of my adult life.

Since I'm a Parseltongue, Alice Cooper has requested I look after his snakes.

And then there was the one where I learned my parents weren't very good at keeping dictators out of the yard. I heard a noise and ran out to see what was happening. It was Adolf Hitler! And he was starting a rally, right over my parents' septic tank.

I yelled at the people who were Sig Heiling "Do you know what this man did?"

Before I go on, I do not support Nazi organizations and I am not anti Semitic. This just shows how absurd dreams can be.

As dozens of Nazis turned at me I yelled "He invented the accordion!"

Adolf went running down the street with his former followers hurling rocks, bricks, and dog doo at him and I woke up and decided I was going to have to make another appointment with the psychiatrist.

Are you sure it was not him:

Nope, haircut doesn't look right. Although he might have had a sex change and plastic surgery.

But everyone knows he's like 147 years old and lives in a mysterious country that no one knows about in South America.

If you tattoo your head with hair dye, your hair will grow that colour.

My company cell phone was plugged into the wall outlet at home and had somehow gotten overheated. There were tiny flames on the rug. I put them out with water but was not sure whether they had spread to the floor underneath. I took a quick look downstairs.

Thanks.

Bill
