Time For A Question - From Ann

What is one of the strangest dreams you've ever had?
Well, for my dooziest dream, be sure to stop over at Lola's Diner. I've been trying to think of another. I did have one with Nuns, and I remember typing it up because it was so bizarre, but it's on the dead laptop. Grrr.

From time to time I have dreams of being chased, but they aren't always the same, the people and circumstances are different, but the general theme is me being in hiding and being chased. The best way to describe it would be Lola trapped in one of the books in the series "Left Behind" by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. I think "Desecration" may be the one. The one where they steal a Hummer and hide out in a Chicago high-rise (former insurance) building and they venture out periodically to gather other believers and bring them to safety. I don't really think I was Chloe, I think I would be more her husband Buck.

Every time I have one of these chasing dreams I end up actually screaming out in my sleep and scaring the bejesus out of Anastasia. I'm usually yelling "Helllllllp" and it sound like I'm in pain, but it's because I'm asleep and I'm really struggling to call out, so it's real guttural sounding.

Isn't weird how a book or movie can sometimes creep into your dreams?

What is a weird dream of yours? I bet there are some doozies!!

I used to get chasing dreams when I was a kid. Now sometimes it's calling 911 but the phone doesn't work.

Does this count at the diner for a comment........?

@ Robin - A little blast from the past. Don't you love the hair?

@ Opus #6 - At least in your dreams you can dial 911. In my dreams, the whole thing of the story of that series is that there are no "authorities" and the ones that are there, are the enemy. So 911 isn't an option. It's good (us) against evil (the devil and them) and they are the ones in charge, while we are the in effect the hunted.

@ Harriet - Umm, no FCR does not feed into the Diner. But you can comment here as much as you like.

I try not to do watch or read anything too scary before bed so it won't sneak into my dream.

I try to avoid scary books or shows before I'm off to bed...if I happen to watch something scary, I'll channel surf until I find a comedy or something to get the other stuff out of my head...and out of my dreams... :)

Happy VGNO! I have a lot of catching up to do over here! :)

I had a dream one night that a guy was trying to grab me in a parking lot. I bit him to get him away- unfortunately, I REALLY bit Ron.

Ron woke up yelling, "Why'd you bite me?"

pretty weird!
