Nervous

Very strange dream last night (early this morning). After being trapped in a long grocery store incident (which I consider its own dream) I was hungry and went to a Japanese restaurant. I did not recognize any of the food there (I love sushi and was bummed they didn’t have any) I tried to order by pointing to pictures on the menu. I did not (do not) speak Japanese and the staff did not speak English. All I wanted was some soup. Brown soup.

I got the soup. It came in a tall glass with a straw and was delicious. I also got a plate of rice and unusual goopy looking things, and three other glasses of clear liquids in which were suspended funny looking things, like a sea cucumber that had tentacles and looked like it was made out of crystal. The waitress explained to me (using gestures) that it was considered a major insult if I touched my nose at any time while I was eating. If I did this, the kitchen staff would stick rice up my nostrils. The rice would have to stay in my nose until I was done eating.

All I wanted was soup.

I tried to eat the crystal sea cucumber, but it was sour and had a texture I shudder to think about. Everything tasted sour except the rice and the soup and I was paranoid about the rice because I didn’t want it up the nose. It took me forever to figure out that I did not have to stay in the restaurant if I didn’t want to. I paid for my meal and got the heck out of there.

Then I dreamed about an unusual church baptism that involved old-fashioned wind-up pocket watches.

Sigh. I can never find my dreams in dream interpretation books.

Off to eat breakfast and write.

added later thanks to Jessica in Sheepshead for the great note – glad you liked all the books!

      1. none of them about having rice stuffed up your nose.

        Gee, thanks for making me laugh by myself in front of the burly mover guys! LOL Now they think I’m insane. 😉

          i can’t believe you are moving already. I really hope you have a good Internet connection over there.

            I can’t believe I’m moving, either! I’d damn well better have good internet connection. Our relo person promises me. I hope she can follow through. I’ll be at my mom’s in CA for a few weeks so I’ll definitely have good internet through most of October.

            Loved SPEAK, the movie! 🙂 (Finally saw it last night!) 🙂

  1. The most important part of a dream is usually the ending. Your ending was this: You’re somewhere where you don’t want to be. You stay there for a while but then you understand that it is in your power to leave (in fact, it’s *always* been in your power to leave).

    Just take that part of your dream and see if there’s any part in you ‘real’ life that corresponds to it. I felt like your subconscious was sending you a powerful message that there is choice in your life and it’s yours to make.

  6. Ha! I have some of the weirdest dreams, too. Like last night I dreamed that my older sister, who is in college now, drove me to school and for some reason I was wearing her old prom dress (to school). Then I made her find me socks and I changed into different clothes but still ended up in her prom dress. I was wearing socks and no shoes, which is not like me. Whenever I woke up I got so confused. I went into my sister’s room this morning for some odd reason and all of a sudden I see the dress on her bedroom floor. It was then that I got a little weirded out.

    P.S.
    I can’t wait to buy the “Speak” dvd!!!

  9. that’s a pretty weird dream… I’ve had some pretty crazy dreams also. I had one where JK Rowling was in the trunk of my car, she wasn’t dead or anything, she was just there. Then I had this really really crazy one about Clay Aiken… my subconscience confuses me

  16. I had a question about the Speak movie. I saw it on Lifetime but someone told me that the there were some parts that they left out. Parts like where Melinda is in her closet talking either out loud or to herself about Rachel dating Andy Evans. Then the part where she writes that stuff on stall in the bathroom and when she’s helping her dad peel potatoes on Thanksgiving. So I was wondering if Lifetime really did cut out those parts of the movie or if they aren’t even in the movie to begin with.

    1. Lifetime did not cut anything… as far as I could tell, but I have only seen the movie a couple times, and I know the book pretty good, and I get them confused. I do know for a fact that the writing on the bathroom stall scene did not make it into the movie at all. The director really wanted to include it, but there was just not enough time.

      1. Uh, heh.
        I didn’t really say I’ve had them, but I actually have.
        The taste…err…you know it’s kind of bland, but then again, I tried a little bit of it. I’m sorry, bu sea cucumber is not my cup o’ tea. Neither is jellyfish…

  23. lol xD

    I love Japanese restaurants. The one I go to is really nice and they have great service and food. When you go to one, try shumai. They’re steamed dumplings and they taste delicious.

    Anyway … Speak is being delivered to my house in a few days! Can’t wait to watch it. I had a really weird dream the other night, too. I dreamed that I was looking at boarding schools (I’m only 13) and then there was this piece of paper with a face on it and someone put leaves, or sticks or something on the face and the gym we were standing in was suddenly transformed into a big garden that was encircled by trees. And I dreamed that everone in it was evil, and that my English teacher from last year was there, and he was eating these evil berries and I ignored him, because I knew he was under a spell. And then I found these steps in a corner of the garden and walked down them onto a beach, and I knew I was safe, but something was still really mysterious about it. Then I woke up.

  24. lol xD
