Y’see people, don’t even try and compete with my dreams. You might as well just get blackout drunk before you go to sleep at night, cause my mighty brain is feeding me sweet sweet sexy dreams while wolves chomp down on your delicates.

Y’know how they say that sex dreams are, like, about other things? Well I had a sex dream last night and it seemed entirely about just having great sex.

My dreams are better than yours.

Details left out.
It was with doll, wasn't it.

I had a really weird dream the other night where I suddenly noticed that everyone I knew was actually a hippopotamus,and I've just been very unobservant my entire life.
It was not a sex dream.

I can almost never remember my dreams, but last night I dreamt that for BeEx's 10 year anniversary, Grim... updated the forum software to a spangly new one that ran on Joomla.

I remember feeling very disappointed in the dream, and even calling Jem over to get her to check that I wasn't going mad, and that it was actually running on Joomla.

Apparently my deep-seated hatred of Joomla is now infecting my subconscious too ;)

Weird dream snippet just came back to me:

Was walking through Poulton (local town) and stumbled across Markg and Baz* among other people sat outside a pub and a few pints in. On seeing me Mark asked if I wanted a drink and walked into the bar then insisted on buying me Gammon**, Egg & Chips as "it was just a nice thing to do". Didn't have the heart to tell him I would have preferred the steak and ale pie. Woke up before meal arrived. :(


*Tinkers regular

**he must be a leave voter!

You know how you always wake up in dreams before you die. It's said that this is because your mind doesn't know how to represent it and what comes after.

So I died last night...

What comes after is that Grim... and Craster give you an expensive server*. And then someone breaks into your house and leaves a cake informing you that they've taken your cooking pans.

Frankly, this is not at all what I expected.

I woke up at that point. Death, I sneer at. Stealing my kitchenware, and replacing it with an ugly yellow cake with messy luminous green icing writing on it, that I take offence to.

I had a nightmare that last night Mr Dave posted an unresolved footnote, but calmed down by convincing myself that would never happen.

* - it was their fault I died, clearly. I was fixing their server** which, because they are apparently bond villains or something, was suspended miles off the ground by a crane in some mountains. For cooling, apparently.

I fell. For quite a time.

He's not wrong. If only there were more random acts of ham, this country would be a better place.

I was on a motor yacht at sea, with about a dozen other people, but the engine failed and we were going to have to be towed back to harbour.

As the tow rope was about to be attached, I advised everyone that they'd be better in the cabin, because if the tow rope broke, it could whip back and cause serious injuries.

No one wanted to go in the cabin, they all said they might be sea sick if they were below deck, so we were all crowded on the deck. A couple of kids sat at the bow, and I was stuck on the port side with my feet only half on the side of the deck, holding on to a rail on top of the cabin and expecting to fall overboard at any moment. Then some dick-head went, 'Boo!' right beside me and I nearly lost my grip. He thought it was hilarious, but I told him I was going to kick the shit out of him when we made land.

Then, we were ashore and had gone into a cafe for a meal that we'd pre-ordered before our pleasure cruise. I was sitting alone, and not really hungry as I'd eaten earlier, but then remembered that I'd ordered scallops as a starter, as I'd never had them before. They arrived, and suddenly I didn't fancy them. Another bloke has joined me at the table, an old friend who I hadn't seen for over 40 years, and I offered him my starter and slid the plate over to him. Then I thought I'd better try one scallop, just to see what it was like. I bit into it, and it was very meaty and quite tough, with a texture like pork. The taste wasn't unpleasant, but it was very chewy and I thought i'd never be able to finish it.

The End.

Some of this has a basis in reality. I have been on a boat recently (the Isle of Wight ferry, which ran aground a few days later), Mrs. W and I were discussing scallops a few days ago when we saw them on some foody programme and neither of us ever have tried them, and I last year I did make contact with an old friend who I hadn’t seen or heard from in around 40 years.


Update. My old friend doesn't like scallops.

I had a dream that I was on on Criminal Dragons Den looking for cash after I had set up an escape room thing which really was a shipping container and then the captured people would work in offshore places laundering money and there was a long discussion about the ethics of killing the lorry drivers used to transport these containers and selling the lorries for more profit.

I mean, that sounds like something you would plausibly do.

WTF killing the lorry drivers is a blatant paper trail to the delivery location. Amateur hour.

Given the performance of the various teams I've done escape rooms with, this probably isn't the money-spinner you think it is.

I had a dream last night that I was in York playing a game with Grim... and JBR. I was on top of the Cathedral, and Grim... was at street level playing some kind of cat and mouse game where he had to run from a starting point with a 15 second headstart to his house (in York) some mile or so away, down twisty lanes, avoiding a pursuer, to reach his house before he was caught. JBR was running in and out of the streets trying to draw the persuer away as a decoy, but he kept stopping as he was getting distracted by antiques and collectibles shops. I was finding routes from the top of the cathedral using binoculars and directing Grim... and JBR using wallow talkies.

That would make an excellent gameshow.

But ONLY if they could get hold of wallow talkies.

Snippets from last nights dreams:

Stopping queue jumping women from getting in front of me to the manky hotel toilet. Once I got through the door the bog was basically a compost bin with a wooden lid.

Struggling to keep up with my fellow riders on a mountain bike ride as for some reason the handlebar on my new bike was a bendy stick.

Arg! You reminded me about my horrible dream on Sunday night!

Craster came to my Uni to deliver a lecture on using bash scripts to make computers say funny sentences.

It was horrible.

As I have got older, I have developed a tendency to fall asleep if I am not physically active, e.g. while watching TV, just sitting on the sofa looking out into the garden, or even sitting in my van waiting for a call to be allocated to me. Sometimes, I’m only asleep for a fraction of a second, but in that time I may experience a instant dream, usually involving having a conversation with someone random, or whoever I’m actually with at the time, and I’ll wake up with the last thing I said still in mind. Occasionally, I’ll blurt out something I would have said to continue the conversation and Mrs W will ask me what the hell I’m talking about if it occurred while we’re together, but mostly I just have the last phrase in my head. For your amusement, I will post these in this thread, when I have time to note them, as otherwise I’ll usually have forgotten them within a few seconds.

This morning’s phrase, that popped up as I was just waking up from last night’s sleep, was , “If you only mean a fish, you should ask for it.”

The best ever one I did was shout, “Shut UP!”, to which my then-wife said, “what?”

Of course I replied with, “Not you—Elton John.”
