Dream... - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
After the cat woke me up this morning, I went back to sleep. Morning is always the time for very weird, detailed dreams.

This one was about some odd summer program, and I was a counsellor there, though the person in charge didn't like me. I seem to have gotten along with the kids all right. First, we were all at a concert, and in between sets, they had a guy out there singing songs from Hair. Afterward, though it was night (apparently this was a 24/7 kind of program), we were all going to rent a movie. To the annoyance of the leader, the kids wanted a horror movie. We all trucked down to a video store that he (the leader) wanted, which was set up to resemble a high school. When you first went in, you had to take a survey based on the genre; in this case, it was "What are you afraid of?", and presumably the majority fears would get a movie recommendation. After that, you go to the "guidance counsellor," who did readers' advisory, examining the survey results and suggesting several titles, and ultimately going to get one. None of the kids was thrilled with the choice. I don't know what it was, because the dream shifted immediately to the school bus back to wherever we were staying, and I overheard the leader saying that he'd arranged with one of the local colleges to take the class en masse when they graduated, regardless of grades. This annoyed me, and I turned to say that some kids deserved a chance at something better, and that others would just be reinforcing bad behavior patterns if they didn't get a change. The leader snarled, "Just because it's a black school, you think the behavior patterns are bad?" I started to protest that I wouldn't have wanted to stay in my high school class, either, but then they started doing construction next door and I woke up.

Hey Fernwithy!

I'd appreciate your vote in the Harry Potter Character Meme going on in my friends journal. I'm nominated for Fleur and Bellatrix. I'd appreciate your vote for both but if not, I'd appeciate your nod for Bellatrix.

Thank you!

Wow, that is extremely detailed. You ever have a dream where you know it's a dream? I really like those. You can do almost anything you want.
