But I told you earlier that I have a most intriguing habit, and the idea behind writing a sentence like that is that I will eventually tell you what this most intriguing habit is. Consider the writer-reader contract fulfilled: I've been writing in a dream journal. It's awesome. Who knows when I'll get something amazing out of a dream! Because my dreams don't often have a lot of plot (though some of them do!), I write in short stream-of-consciousness phrases. And I write in present tense, which makes it even more awesome! Here are a few examples from my past two weeks of dreaming:
* I drive around in a teacup.
* I am a mermaid.
* I climb up a vertical sidewalk and I'm wearing a black dress.
* A friend tells me his age is 5 o'clock.
I also write down some of the strange images, like these:
* A cathedral in Montreal.
* A staircase that is an elevator.
* Girls in lacy dresses sitting on a flat boat that is floating down a canal.
* A rabbit who has lost its ears.
You should try it some time. You're probably worried about my sanity, reading all these things that come directly, unedited, from my head.
You're going to avoid me from now on. Oh well. My mother and I enjoy analyzing dreams, and it always helps to have written the details down immediately upon waking. Dream journals = awesome!
My Muchness: I enjoy bizarre children's movies from the '80s, like The Labyrinth or NeverEnding Story. I love the idea of having an adventure inside a book, don't you?
