Ads in dreams?

Last night/this morning, I had what I would depict as the closest thing I could have to an ad in dream world.  It was about a brand of self-help type books: 

There was a family sitting around a table (girl on the far end, boy underneath, and mother off to the right.  They were all going through books on all subjects (cooking books, etc) when all of a sudden they started hiding books under the table.  I’m not sure if they were trying to conceal the number of books or what, but basically the boy stashed some of the other books within the one that he was reading.  Anyway, at that point, the father figure walked in with some more books in shopping bags.  He said something along the lines of “Guess what I have…”  They all knew the brand of the book, and low and behold… what he took out of the bags were more books. 

I just hope that this isn’t foreshadowing the future.

Damn squirrel dreams…

I found myself bashing a picture in my room last night, around 3am.  Apparently, I was dreaming that a squirrel was hanging out on the picture.  I guess I felt the need to take my pillow and hit the picture as hard as I could, a couple times.  Heh… they joys of acting out my dreams.  Anyway, I figured this should be mentioned as it might bring a smile to someone’s face.

Sleep walking Jim

I forgot to mention, in my previous Colorado post, that I walked in my sleep twice while I was out there.  The second time, I woke everyone up in the bunkhouse.  To me, it was pretty amusing, but I’m pretty sure that I really freaked the other people out.

The first time (Saturday night -10/11/2003), I got out of bed and went over toward a bag on the floor, by the door.  I think I was looking for a bottle of water or something, but I’m not quite sure what I was planning on doing with it.  I do remember that I was kneeling down by the bag, but I don’t think I was looking through it.  At that point, I started to wake up, and then I heard some rustling from one of the other people in the bunkhouse.  So, I jumped back into bed and tried not to make a huge deal about it.  No one mentioned it the next day, so I felt as though it was fitting to bring up with Bill, while we were out. 

The second time (Sunday night – 10/12/2003) that I did something in my sleep, I really didn’t walk anywhere.  It would be more characterized as me acting out a dream that I was having.  I believe that the dream consisted of some sort of chain/nail cover that was coming over me.  It would have been similar to a bed sheet that was being pulled up the bed.  Though, in my little world, it had nails/spears on the end, and wasn’t something that draped over a body.  So, I did what anyone would do in that situation, I jumped out of bed.  When I “woke up,” I was on all fours on the floor.  At that point, the amount of noise that I made woke everyone up, and I heard my Dad asking my brother if I was ok.  Who knows why he couldn’t ask me, but apparently he thinks that he has to go through a mediator in order to communicate with me sometimes.  So while my brother was asking me questions, the other two people in the room where probably just really confused.  I know that my brother asked me what I was doing or if I knew where I was.  I was still partly dreaming at that point, so I kind of mumbled yeah, but really, I was just trying to get a grasp on what was real, etc… I know that I would’ve answered and explained about the chain/nail type cover thing that was out to get me, but I’m just not that expressive.  At that point, it seemed pretty normal for something like that to try to “get me.”  But instead, I got right back in bed and fell asleep, to wait for the questions the next day.

Both nights, I think I had maybe one or two beers.  Nothing major, so it must have been something else to give me so much pent up energy.  Strange.. maybe one day, I’ll figure out what it is that gets me going like that.

My “theme-park” dream

Last night/this morning I had a dream, which I remember some of the details from.  I was at a theme park, waiting in line to go on this ride… It was a water ride.  This water ride consisted of two cars on separate rails.  These cars were 2 seaters, at most, though I think only one person at a time, rode in each car throughout my dream… when people got in the cars, and the ride was ready, the cars backed up a “track” almost vertically.  The cars then proceed to ride down the track and splash in the water.  A pretty uneventful ride, if I do say so myself… So for part of this dream, I was waiting in line and I watched the ride I remember seeing one person, who jumped out of a car, did 2 & 1/2 flips and landed pretty awkwardly in the water below.  I remember thinking, as I approached the front, how the person was not injured, and how they actually pulled it off.  The rest of the dream gets somewhat foggy… I know that I rode the ride and when I was getting off, people were leaving the amusement park in a hurried fashion.  Sorry folks, but that’s pretty much all I can remember…


I saw something today that sparked a little bit of an interest in me.  Here is a post about someone’s dream.  I’ve been known to have a few weird dreams now and again.  Not to mention getting up and doing all sorts of interesting things while sleeping.  So, if I remember my dream when I hop on the computer in the morning, I’ll jot down whatever I can recall.  It’s been a while since I’ve had a real vivid dream, so I’m about due…
