It's a good thing when you dream, right? - Not a rock, I'm just Ruth
All Me, no apologies
It's a good thing when you dream, right?
I swear, I haven't had any dreams for almost a month and then I get one two nights in a row. I've been pretty exhausted with caregiving and maybe now the good news is letting me sleep better?

Wednesday night I dreamed I was in the Tokyo airport with Carson Kresley, waiting for a flight to come home. I was very tired because I had been a contest winner and the prize was to be Carson's personal assistant during Tokyo fashion week. Did I have a good time? I was too tired to care. I said the only thing I regretted was that I had been running around so much I hadn't had time to buy souvenirs for all the people I had planned to. Carson told me not to worry, all that had been taken care of. He said I had done a wonderful job and commented that I had lost weight "Running your ass off and eating sushi will do that for you."

He asked me if I wanted to do it again sometime - and that's when the alarm woke me up.

Before I tell you the next dream - I need to ask a question of ginalin, okaasan59, kwycksilver because we are all of "a certain age" and have experience with American pop-culture.

Is that David Cassidy singing in the background of the new "Natural" *scoff* 7-Up commercial?? It's been driving me nuts.

Marirose and I were having breakfast in the kitchen nook of a one room apartment on the second floor of a house (why were we there and where was Jack?) Marirose went to answer a knock on the door and three guys forced their way in - Pretty Face (vaguely oriental), Mouth (Caucasian) and Tough (black-it worries me that I dream in cliches). I ask what they want and Mouth smacks me in the eye and tells me this is their place now. Pretty Face says Mouth was right and this window had the best view. Tough suggests I better put on some more coffee. Then they notice Marirose is missing and worry she's gone for the police.

"I doubt it," I say. The door literally crashes in and Rick (sentairick and Chris (christinev), our downstairs neighbors are running in. (why are we living over Rick and Chris? I don't know.) Rick looks at my now-black eye and turns red.

"Which" one of you fucks did that?" he roars.

Mouth wets his pants and all hell breaks loose. Tough asks Chris if he wants to dance. Somehow, Pretty Face ends up face-first under the kitchen sink. I'm trying to get out of the way and wondering where Marirose is when - I know Rick didn't mean to break the kitchen table, but I can't help being glad he did it with Mouth. Chris yanks Tough's earrings out and he really doesn't need Marirose breaking a lamp across his back to be subdued. I grab her and start heading out the ruined door.

"Are you going for the cops?" Tough actually sounds hopeful.

"No," I said, "I'm going to get some ice for my eye and let them get creative."

I had to go to the bathroom when I woke up.

Dreaming is good. It means that you are getting enough and deep enough sleep that you are not only hitting REM, but remembering it.

As for the content well you've had a lot on your mind lately so maybe your subconscious is trying to work through it all.

Ha! That's a good dream! It feels so empowering to kick ass-even if it's just dream ass. ^___^

And it sure sounds like David Cassidy in that commercial. (I YouTubed it.) But then I looked up all his cds on amazon and couldn't find that song--of course, I didn't listen to all his songs, just the ones with titles that would have fit. And I came to a conclusion...that boy really couldn't sing!

I looked at them but I might have missed it.

I wonder - weren't there a couple episodes where the songs didn't make it on to the albums? Either that or it's something new from his *cough* comeback. *cough, cough*

Well, if you read the post after this, apparently my subconcious is coming with metaphors for battling Jack's cancer.
