Last night I dreamt that some guy found out some supersecret information about the servers that Metafilter runs on and was going to blackmail us!

So Matthowie went over to his place in person and proceeded to break his fingers one by one. And because he had a live cam on during this exchange people had a MetaTalk thread running and were joking and snarking and passing the pop corn while they were following the whole thing.

And I was so upset about how this is not the kind of culture I want on Metafilter and why aren't the mods doing anything and it just isn't how it used to be!

Hmph.

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

Last night I had a dream that I was babysitting for some people and the parents came home and were all "here, we have an entire roast chicken and a whole bunch of baklava, would you like to take it home?" and of course the only answer is yes, and when I opened their cupboard to get some tupperware, I found a tupperware container with my name on it. That was a pretty good dream.

But I had a dream the night before last that my Girl Scouts (I have a troop, the girls are all 6-9 years old) and I were on a trip together and they all started their periods. They were scared and crying and I was like I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, and it was just awful. Worst dream ever.

Last night, the bacon I was smoking was taking forever. The neighbors walked by with their dog, and asked if I was barbecuing, and I showed them the bacon. We talked for a while. I played with their adorable dog.

I woke up this morning after dreaming about seeing my neighbor in a dream-version of the neighborhood behind my childhood school, and he and another man were operating smokers. I asked them what they were making, and they said they were smoking bread pudding. They opened up the smoker, and yes, bread pudding.

I'm reasonably sure this means nothing at all.

I had a dream where Jessamyn was going to get married to my brother. For some reason the plans for all this involved me cleaning up a large and seriously cluttered house, all on my own, and that's pretty much all I remember about it. That night before bed I had spent maybe three hours reading old MeTas which I guess gave my brain a few things to process.

I had a dream where a guy was trying to sell me a new Dell computer. I explained that I was not really ready to buy a new one; the current PC was okay for now and I was not really in funds. But the guy just kept going on and on and would not fucking shut up. It sounded like a nice enough computer, but no, really not interested just now. After awhile I woke up and found I'd left the TV on, and it was a shopping channel, and they were selling...

I keep having dreams where I am wandering around some strange house desperately trying to find a place to take a leak. I always wake up in time. So far, anyway.

Last night I dreamed that I was at the release party concert for Boards of Canada's new album. Which was being held in one of the open squares downtown London. The Sanderson brothers started picking fights with the audience during the opener, an excruciatingly slow fade-in of a muddy, wavering held chord that sounded kind of like it had been copied off an overused strip of 16mm film.

Last night, I dreamed I was President of the United States a Metafilter moderator and all I kept saying to the suck up minions coming into the Oval Office thread was, "This job sucks." Over and over. Finally, my secretary, who looked a lot like my really hot (to a nine year old) 4th grade teacher, came in and said, "If you don't stop talking like that I am going to send you to the principal's office. Now, quiet down and do your job." The only response I could muster was, "May I please go to the bathroom?" Then I woke up and went to the bathroom. It was one of those oh so awesome relieving pees that usually only happen after a night camping out in sub freezing weather and not wanting to leave your sleeping bag, but finally at day break you make that decision that it is time.

A few years ago, I had to read a few hundred pages of printed material and then write a long and complex paper about it in a very short time. I had a nightmare that I was being crushed by a huge stack of papers. In my sleep, I said to my boyfriend, "Help, I can't get these papers off me, they are crushing me." He said, "I think what's crushing you is actually the cat." Apparently his cat was sleeping on my chest. Not quite awake yet, I replied, "It might be the cat too, but it's mostly the papers." Oh cats...

The other night I had a dream, and I never remember my dreams but I remembered this one, in which I was covered in big red pimples that on closer examination were alien spider/crab things that had been implanted and were gestating in my skin. I started out of the bed in my dream and when I looked back the spot where I had been sleeping was covered in dirt and crawly bug-things, very much like when you lift up a rock. It was horrifying and I awoke then, in the dark, fearing the worst.

It was a tremendous relief when I awoke again in the morning and discovered that I was not covered in big red spider/crab pimples.

We chatted for a while about why she was there, which was to work at the local museum. And her brother Jake was also going to be working at the museum this summer, only he was going to work on the big monorail project there, because he LOVES monorails.

I dreamed up an entirely original episode of M*A*S*H once when I was twelve. I was one of the doctors; I don't remember much of the fine details, but it was much like your typical episode, with Hawkeye wisecracking away and Winchester being his grumpy self; the plot, though, was that people didn't know where Radar was. He wasn't, like, missing in an alarming way, it was more of a "you know, now that I think about it I haven't seen him in a couple days" kind of thing. So, yeah, I dreamed I was in there with Hawkeye and BJ and Houlihan and we're all gradually getting more and more caught up in "so wait, where the hell is Radar anyway".

And finally there was the obligatory O.R. scene, and we were all in there tending to the wounded - and I dreamed that suddenly Klinger came running in and said "guys! guys! Guess what - I found Radar!" and we all turned to him eagerly asking where he was. "Oh, man, you'll never believe it!" Klinger said. "Radar was -- "

And that is the exact moment that my alarm clock woke me up for school that morning. I uttered a howl of frustration that scared the shit out of my parents.

To this day I really wish I knew where the fuck Radar had been.

Last night I had the strangest dream
Saw everybody running in the streets
Leapfrogging salmon trying to get upstream
The dream was over but I could not sleep
I had to put on the lights when she said that

Last night I had the strangest dream
The sky was dark and I could not see
Felt underwater when I tried to scream
When I heard the rooster I was finally free
I was a little bit frightened when he said that

Last night I had the strangest dream
Me and the chickens running in the streets
We met a monkey with an eye that gleamed
He drew that line we couldn't move our beaks
A doggie woke me and he said hey rooster

Last night I had the strangest dream
The war was over but I had no peace
The moon was waning so it wasn't the beams
It's just a dream but I have no peace
I eavesdropped on my masters they said that

Last night we had the strangest dream
It was disturbing, oh what does it mean?
Monkey in a turban, oh what does it mean?
Last night we had the strangest dream
We better go to the mayor then we drove
Downtown to have a talk with the mayor
He told my masters uh, oh, can't you see?
What we have here is a prophecy
Cross your fingers people say a prayer
I'm not a religious dog but I say that

Better pray for the girls
Better pray for the girls
Ain't no other hope in this whole world

In sleep we searched behind the sun
A funny place to find someone
We did not find them on the moon
We dreamed that's where they disappeared
We dreamed perhaps another pearl
Or dangling on some other dune
But darker dreams we fear
Where'd you go this time, girls?

Better pray for the girls
Better pray for the girls
Ain't no other hope in this whole world.

I had a nightmare when I was about ten years old that I still rember to this day: There was a path going up a steep, rocky mountain slope. Everything was bathed in a hellish red glow. A bunch of ragged people in chains where walking up the slope, led by a vague Jesus-type figure. As each one reached the top of the mountain, they fell into a gaping pit. Sort of like Wilbur Mercer, but with more flames.

I had a cat once whose sole purpose in life was to try to Get Outside. She was indoors only because I lived along a busy street. She was also very stand-offish and rarely slept with me.

One Friday night, after a particularly trying day of barely preventing her from escaping every time the door was opened, she actually curled up on the bed with me and slept pressed up against my ankle.

My dreams that night were all from a very low-to-the-ground angle, and doors featured prominently in all of them, with a strong sense of urgently needing to get to the doors, but somehow always being thwarted.

I've often wondered if the cat had dreams that night about bills and work and boyfriend issues.

こんな夢を見た


Though the wind does not blow here
still there are sad songs
and little dogs with angry hearts
barking with their fingers
at everything which moves
and some birds who fly in their sleep
but their feathers are not real
wishing for a life in someone else's body
words that do not roll along any rivers
like water
looking for relatives
and counting blessings
the drum beats in the quiet void
where strangers posture strangely
and the door stays open
all night

I had the same nightmare every night for about five years.

I'm driving with all three kids in the back of the car. Suddenly, the car is either on fire or underwater. I have to choose which of my three boys I can save. I'm only allowed to pick two. Then I would wake up in a cold sweat with tears streaming down my face and an unassailable feeling of guilt.

Sorry to suck all of the joy out of the room. I'm just not as fond of dreams as I once was.

Last week I had a dream I went to a Mefi meetup at a space elevator. Sadly I woke up before we reached the top.

That's because MeFi transcends space and time. The elevator doesn't go to there.

MeFi was in the elevator the whole time!
