Strange Dreams
Well, I said earlier that I was a bit sleepy, so I took an evening nap. And during this nap, I ended up having a very odd dream. (Is there such a thing as an un-odd dream?)

It played upon some "current in the brain" thoughts, such as Thanksgiving coming up and my current DVD purchasing obsession. Then it added in some Doctor Who and Monty Python, for good measure. And as often occurs in my dreams, my family was involved. I'll try my best to recreate it.

It's Thanksgiving and we're at my sister's. (The folks and I are going to be flying to the Twin Cities to visit with Amy this year.) And for entertainment purposes, I'm showing off my new DVD purchase. Yes, it's the new Doctor Who movie. I've been known to buy DVDs, sight unseen (Bend It Like Beckham being an example of a great one), but a Doctor Who movie sight unseen? And this particular Doctor Who movie was produced and written by Eric Idle (my favorite of the Python crowd, of course). The star? Well, the movie, as is wont to happen in my dream, starred the 5th, 6th, and 7th Doctors. Focusing mainly on Doc5 (Peter Davison) and Doc7 (Sylvester McCoy). Hey, if you're gonna dream it, you're gonna populate it with your favorite actors/characters, right?

So we all sit and watch the movie and it's funny and entertaining (with some cringe-worthy moments, of course) and poor Colin Baker (Doc6) gets very little airtime. And there's a side-plot about the daughter of some American General (played by someone like Tommy Lee Jones - the general, not the daughter) and her mother. And there's an old little Japanese guy in it and I'm not sure what he was there for. My mom said she at first didn't get that side-plot, but eventually figured it out that she was the daughter of the general. Dad said he really enjoyed it. No idea what Amy thought, even though this was supposedly at her place. Then I woke up to try and puzzle things out.

Well, I think the dream is an improvement over the Are You Being Served? dream I once had. I sometimes think my brain is truly f*cked up. But there ya go. :-)

Sounds like a great movie. You should write it out as fan fic.

I once dreamed the basic plot of the movie "Restoration" (period piece staring Robert Downey Jr.), then, about a week after the dream, I saw a review of it on Siskel and Ebert (the first time I'd heard of the movie) and realized that it was my dream -- made into a movie.

Write the story? I only wish I could. I have this nagging feeling that there are details from the dream that I *should* remember, but that I don't. It's very frustrating.

I did forget to mention that Sylv was brilliant in it. No snickering in the back, there!

Well, I dreamed about a naked James Marsters in the Alpines. So I can understand your confusion. :D

Wow! When were you in the Alpines? And why the hell did you dream of James while there? ;-)

(You'll need more details that this if you want to appease Elsa...)

As to the naked bit... I don't think anyone's ever been naked in my dreams except me. Damn.
