HALLOWEEN DOUBLE STUFFED SCARY OPINION POLL!
Lately, my incredibly vivid dreamlife has become even more bizarre, even aggressive. My dreams are like films or perhaps more like soap operas or television miniseries - once interrupted by waking, they restart when I fall back to sleep. Even more strange, they generally haven't waited for me to rejoin them. Their plots, if you will, have moved on and I must catch up on the storyline that I have missed. I suppose it goes without saying that I remember my forays into my own twisted subconscious, but there! I've said it anyway. Even more disturbing (uhuh) than how I dream is what I've been dreaming. A few examples:
1. I have a newborn baby girl, work for the BUSH administration and I'm accompanying my entire family to a news conference at the White House.
2. I have a stigmata wound on my left hand that speaks words of wisdom to my cat, Stinky, and me while we nap.
3. I have an idea for a sitcom pilot that I'm trying to sell to Sarah Jessica Parker while we stroll the Mall of America and as we try to exit the Mall, we get caught in my subconscious.
4. I'm starring in a multi-million dollar Broadway Musical that I have staged at my old High School Auditorium that combines SHOWBOAT, Blue Man Group, Angela Lansbury and...oh yeah, I can fly.
Now, just in time for Halloween. Let me know which of the four dreams you think is the scariest and I'll try to write it into a short story. Either COMMENT on my BLOG or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, October 30, 2006! Oooh! What fun a contest! And only Timothy Hogan would be arrogant enough to think the stuff of his DREAMS worthy of sharing...or SCARING!
