although it was not quite how I’d visualised it…
Today, I’d planned to resurrect the goal ‘Have a Day of Silence’. I have no where to go and shall be spending the whole day all by myself. It seemed the perfect time to do this. And last night I had a dream about it. And in the dream I forgot that I had to be silent.
And I blew it. Within minutes!!
When I woke up I found this highly amusing that my dream self had not managed to keep quiet. When I got out of bed, I fetched my phone charger and went to plug it in. But I couldn’t find my phone and searched for a minute or two, with no success. And I uttered the words ‘Oh dear’...
And I blew it. Within minutes!!
I should have realised how hard the silence goal would have been. Not because I talk all the time, because I don’t. I’m often quiet. But because I do often mumble to myself during the day. This quality is clearly not conducive to a day of silence…
When I first decided to do the silence goal, I would imagine what it’d be like to do it for longer and how good I’d be at that. I guess not then…
Oh well, at least it has meant I have completed this goal!! 5 months ago
I dreamt it was my birthday and for some reason I was having two parties in two dining halls of two different Oxford Colleges (think the dining hall in Hogwarts) The one I chose to go in first had some live music playing and then life size versions of Rainbow’s George and Zippy doing the rounds, giving autographs and posing for pictures. Sadly, Bungle was not present. 9 months ago
Well, last night I dreamt that I was having a birthday party. It was taking place in a room inside a shopping mall that I’d hired for the occasion (the room, not the whole mall)
I was very excited and turned up early to set up. The thing is I had invited lots of people, but I’d also invited lots of 43T folks too. As I was setting up, who should turn up but Donna. Unfortunately she was unable to attend, but she had ‘popped over’ quickly all the way here just to tell me that she couldn’t come. We made alternative arrangements to meet up on November 3rd (I remember the date specifically) when, Donna explained, she was partaking in a tour of Europe. We said our goodbyes and I continued to set the party up.
And then everyone began to arrive at once. And there were an awful lot of you – the room was quite small and I did worry that there wouldn’t be room!! I’m sure I wasn’t the best dream hostess, so apologies if I neglected anyone… ;)
Unfortunately I woke up before the party really got going. The dancing hadn’t even started! 15 months ago
I was on an aeroplane (not sure where it was going) when I realised there was a 43Ter that I recognised sitting behind me. I remember feeling unsure about whether to say anything as I didn’t know whether this person would have seen the one photo I posted once, long ago, so may not even realise who I was. But I struck up a conversation. Unfortunately there was a problem with the plane and we ended up having to walk (hope it wasn’t too far!!) 18 months ago
I had another 43T people dream last night and a dream about a hired assassin who was going to do me in (I don’t think these dreams are in any way related!)
I think the 43T dream is my guilt about now not having enough time to read, cheer and comment on all the entries I want to, now that reality is here once more. It also doesn’t help that the cheer fairy keeps very anti-social hours. I can’t stay up late enough to use the cheers that always seem to pop into my allowance at about the same time each night and I’m too rushed in the morning to spend them when I wake. And by the time I get to log on again, they’ve blimmin’ gone. Grrr!
By the way, the hired assassin made me traipse around after him and kept sticking pins in me. He was not very nice. I therefore don’t intend to re-enact this one in a hurry! 20 months ago
In my attempt to catch up on sleep, I had an afternoon sleep today after getting up too early. I dreamt that there was a chimpanzee at the window and all I could think was I must get my camera so that I can take a picture for the July Scavenger Hunt (I’m not quite sure which category the chimp in question could fill, but hey…)
Whilst it is highly unlikely that this dream could actually happen in reality, I would definitely want a photo, so given the chance I would re-enact this dream!
I used to have a very odd recurring dream when I was a child about a monkey, or rather gorilla, which one day I may be inclined to share on 43T…!22 months ago
