I just overslept but he he, given the dream I just had, it was worth it :)
Somehow my alarm was set and it woke me at 8. I flipped it off, thought about getting up, then said "Naaaaah" and was asleep in 2 seconds.
Then I had a dream. A very funny dream with lots of people I know -- or at least could picture in a dream.
As much as I can remember, Storm and I had been invited to run a track at some other convention. It wasn't Lunacon or Dragon*Con, but another con which possibly (at least at start of dream) was in Atlanta. The con was scheduled to take place in a public school instead of a hotel, which is kind of an interesting idea. Anyway, there was a whole section of the dream at the convention, which was somewhat well-organized though at times not.
One bit I clearly remember was there being a regular program schedule and then this *other* schedule the organizers kept bragging about, which was a big glossy goth zine. Well, after waiting for like a day since the printing was late, the zine came out and we all read it. OMG, it was sooooo bad! It was glossy all right, but it had a fashion section that was like fashion disasters and the whole thing was full of bad poetry. At this point cue marchenland
going off on it and talking about how the organizers of the con were a bunch of 17-year-old goth wannabes with cash enough for a glossy zine, but no style.
Finally there was a break in the con and Storm and I went out. Somehow we were now in Stafford or at least in England. The weird thing was that at first, she had a car, which of ALL things was a pink Buick. LOL. I think she was renting it though, since a) she doesn't drive in RL and b) she wasn't used to driving and thus we were kind of getting a bit lost.
Finally we were in some strange sort of city, which was very English but at the same time, was kind of futuristic, but using Art Noveau design (this is my dream, remember). One thing it had was all kind of unusual public transit. There were subways and trains above ground but the cool thing was, they were all inside clear tubes and the trains didn't have WALLS so you could see all the people. However, I think it was one-way mirrors because you could see people doing silly things like picking their noses and scratching themselves, thinking nobody could see. Storm and I were totally laughing over that.
Eventually we must have ditched the car, because we were in a new transit situation -- the public swim lane! Yes, this city had water transport where people SWAM. It was soooo funny. Everybody had bathing suits on suddenly and Storm and I were swimming down the "line" with all these other people. I was doing a really crappy dog paddle but still managing to keep up. Then I felt somebody tugging on my leg and giggling -- and who should it be but Kristina and thespian
, who for some reason are super jolly and think there's something super funny about the whole situation. Anyway, turns out the bathing suit I was wearing had words on it in the back, in great big letters: "SHREK LITE." I think Kristina must've peed herself laughing.
Anyway, that's when I woke up :)
