I definitely need to stop eating leftover fried rice before bed.

Dorkiest. Dream. Ever.

Okay, so I was Somewhere in Ontario(tm), in a store that apparently was a competitor of Canadian Tire. It was a field trip of some kind, and I was with a whole group of people;catwalksalone, unhurt and meresy were also in the group.

For some reason we were camping out in said store, and I remember suggesting we also visit an actual Canadian Tire, since I'd never been in one (a true fact, btw, but um. Not one that bothers me, honest). Everyone was all, yeah, that's a great idea. They were all WAY too enthusiastic about this plan (including meresy, who, well. Just wouldn't get all het up like that in RL over a trip to Canadian Tire, fergodssake).

Someone else suggested we make a side trip to Ottawa (and okay, a trip to Ottawa as an afterthought to a planned visit to the local Canadian Tire? Um.). Anyway, we didn't do either of those things in my dream, but I did get to go on this giant swing that looked like a ski lift, and we all got to look around the store and then camp out on the floor in sleeping bags. There was a nerdy computer guy doing something Very Important there, too; I don't remember what it was, just that it was pretty much essential to life as we know it or something. And there was a little kid who may or may not have been my Amelia. There was more, which I would have been able to remember if I'd written this down right after I woke up.

Road Trip, Baybee!

And hmm. Maybe I have a seekrit desire to have some of that cool chain that meresy uses to make those nifty bracelets of hers.

Dreams are the most fascinating things ever. I wonder if there's a community where people share theirs. If there is, I'm all over it.

My most recent was really chilling, and I'll not hijack your journal to tell about it. Suffice to say it ended with me running around the corner of a city block to find the barrel of a pistol leveled inches from my forehead. In the calmest voice, the guy holding the gun said, "Bang," and I woke up. I wrote the scene down because it's going in one of my stories for sure.

Anyway, I think God is trying to tell you you're way too obsessed with Canada.

Nah. I mean, I don't care if I EVER darken the door of a Canadian Tire. And I can't remember ever dreaming about Canada before (or any other specific country aside from my own, actually).

And besides, I don't think God likes one country better than another. And even if he did, it'd probably be some little one that never makes any waves and never hurt anyone, like Liechtenstein, or even more likely, one that got violently trampled through no fault of its own, like the Navajo Nation.

What I really think is that I'm way too disappointed about not being able to do my Annual Holiday this month. That and the fried rice.

Dreams are very interesting.

Oh my, the God thing 'twas meant as a little joke. I can't handle such Serious Business on a Monday.

I'm sorry about the lack of June holidaying. :( Perhaps later in the summer?

August, unless the sky falls. :)

And oh, I remember! I did dream about Cape Breton once, quite a while back. It was a really weird dream involving, hmm. Another field trip, this time with some patients from the Intensive Treatment Unit of the hospital where I work. One had curly hair and a purple pen. It was eerie (as opposed to Erie, which isn't anywhere near Cape Breton).
There's no poopin' on the bus y'know...

You've never been to Canadian Tire?! Omg, I can spend a day in Home Depot, Rona, etc... I've always been a little carpenter/fixit gal though.

Geez....ya didn't even bump into me in CT? No one ever has fangirl dreams with me in them.... :( ;P

Your dream sounds very much like mine are....with the big swing/ski lift thing in the store and whatnot. Isn't it great when your mind dreams up these oddities? :D

We weren't in Canadian Tire; we were in some Dreamworld Competitor of CT. You, most likely, were over in the real deal.

It's weird that there was only one actual Canadian of the people I recognized (and they were all people I've met IRL, which may mean something).
