I had this weird dream the other day,

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 15, 2013, 7:29 PM
MY SISTAH ON DA! l My Tumblr l Ask Erik on Tumblr l Gallery l My Viva Victorians! blog l


and I can't stop thinking about it. My mom decided to turn our house into a ragtime saloon and it was SO LOUD twenty four hours a day because of the rousing Joplin tunes and the rowdy old-timey men and the bawdy barmaids and I could not get any work done at all. So I approached my mom and said, in the calmest, most direct manner I could, "Mom, I don't appreciate you turning our house into a ragtime saloon without even talking to me about it first. It's so loud all the time that I'm not getting enough sleep and consequently, I am not getting enough work done. I would appreciate it if our house could go back to being a house instead of a hubbub for early jazz influences."

But my mom didn't care. She was all, "You can't tell me what to do! We're making a ton of money, so you just have to suck it up!"

I tried to tell her that we couldn't pay the bills with early 20th century bank notes, but she would have none of it. So I had to try to work while some mustachioed, bowler hat-wearing guy named Jenkins played the piano at all hours and his buddies sang "Ta Ra Ra Boom De Ay" at two in the morning while swishing around their tankards of ale.

When I went downstairs the next morning, I wasn't fully awake, and so I was pretty darn irritated with my mom. I mean, for Pete's sake, you can't just open a ragtime saloon willy nilly like that. You have to TALK about these things.

I told her about the dream and we laughed it off, but now every time I play The Entertainer on the piano, I feel like walking up to the next guy I see with a handlebar mustache and a bowler hat and punching him in the face because, excuse me, sir, it is midnight and you won't cut out the racket, how am I supposed to finish my essays?

HomyGOSH was that FUNNY!!!! :rofl: You and your sub/unconscious get epic humor points!
Makes me want to watch 'Aristocats.'
Now I'm wondering what strange role could your mind have also given our dear Phantom in that dream? ^u^

That's hilarious! I love weird dreams, although I don't really believe dreams mean anything . . . If you can usually remember your dreams so well, you should try lucid dreaming! There are some great websites for instructions. I've been practicing it and it's really fascinating . . .

It's interesting what happens in our dreams. Especially when they are so very vivid.
Most of the time, I can never make sense of them. But they are VERY entertaining. Shoot... with that sort of imagination, we should be living the high life in Hollywood!

Oh wow, that was a good one! That's right up there with my Dr Who dream. Guess if you're stressed it's always better to have someone else to blame for it! Even if it is a mustachioed piano player >.>

Interesting dream....XD

That's pretty special. Last week I dreamed that I went back to my old school, and found a room in which the old teachers kept a whole bookcase full of boxes labelled with titles of my previous anxiety dreams. They said things like "Oh god, its the last day of term and I can't carry all this crap home." Apparently, they enjoyed taking the boxes down and having a good laugh at my expense. A bit meta.

omg wow :XD: that IS stragne. It's stranger than anything I've ever had.

Sounds to me like someone might be feeling a bit guilty for all the time spent on the fabulous art she has recently posted here, and is blaming the mustachioed Jenkins and his bawdy music for not having all her schoolwork done on time.

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

You know, you could always go back to your dream mother and tell her you've discovered a NEW (and bawdy!) way to make bunches of money WITHOUT a college education.

Barb :D

Ah, I love reading about people's dreams. Things are so irrational but they feel important at the time. It's an interesting perspective.

Gotta say, I loved reading this. This is better than my Silent Hill, Tomb Raider, Dragon Age, PoTO, blender dream. I DON'T HAVE A GAMING PROBLEM I CAN STOP WHENEVER I WANT. o.O

You should look it up with this: [link]

Dream Dictionary. It's a website where you can look up the meaning of your dream.
