Had my first dream with GH characters [SPOILERS]
« on: January 08, 2008, 10:28:38 AM »

OK. The details are a bit fuzzy, so I might be embellishing a little bit while trying to remember what I can. However, it's mostly based on a true story.

I don't recall exactly how the dream begins, but the first details that come to mind place me in some sort of gathering place. I guess it's an upscale bar or something. I'm talking to some dude about a couple of business ideas that I have. This dude is dystopia. I describe to him the first idea, but I can't really remember the specifics. The second one is some kind of telephony/Internet-based service. I guess it's kind of like a voice-activated Google search service. You call a number to request information. Through some voice-recognition technology it runs a search and sends the requested information via email to your smartphone. Whatever. Dumb idea. It's a dream, after all.

So dystopia likes this particular idea and encourages me to write up some use cases for this service to start a business plan. He leaves, and I go over to the lounge area of this place and start dictating use case scenarios to my assistant, who's one of the ladies from my secretarial pool. Now this is the part of the dream that's of the ****ual nature...


Before too long, my assistant says, "Oh, he's back." I look over the back of the couch, and dystopia is now in his PJs and robe, sitting at what appears to be a kitchen table and eating his morning cereal. He looks like he just woke up. He just sits there staring off into space (thinking about getting a better job, I suppose). I know. Weird. It's a dream, after all.

Without any kind of segue, I'm now in the crowded part of the bar having drinks, and I run into spacey. We share a few laughs and he mentions that he's having some dudes over for poker night. I call stroh from my cell phone, and he picks up. I hear the loud screaming of kids in the background. I say, "Hey, dude. You want to play poker over at spacey's?" stroh says, "Nah, we're playing Wii." I say, "That's cool" and hang up. I tell spacey that stroh's playing Wii, and spacey explains to me, "stroh doesn't play poker." I think to myself, "*humid grotto*."

So now we're outside the bar, and we hop onto a couple of bicycles and start heading to spacey's place. We pass by some ladies walking down the sidewalk having a discussion about recently attending a Van Halen reunion concert and commenting about how bad they sounded. As I peddle by them, I remark to them that they sounded pretty bad in the 80s too. Meanwhile, we're cycling along, and I start to sense the "awkward silent moment" coming up. After all, I don't know spacey all that well. I try to make some small talk by commenting that Eddie Van Halen deserved to have his teeth fall out because of his hard living. In a loud, booming voice from nowhere like Obi-Wan Kenobi, UB starts chastising me. "Why do you hate Eddie? That was a very mean-spirited thing to say." So I rephrase what I said to spacey by saying, "With all the smoking, alcohol, and drugs, it's no wonder Eddie is in such poor health."

We finally arrive at spacey's bachelor pad. I walk in, and I notice that everything is white--the walls, furniture, carpet, etc. I say to spacey, "Dude, everything looks so white in here." He says to me, "Look closer. Don't you see the mauve accents?". I say, "Yeah. Whatever," and sit down at the poker table. I open up my wallet to pull out some cash, and I see a couple 20s amongst a wad of singles and fives. So I'm thinking, "Oh, crap. I don't have enough money." Meanwhile, Teed shows up carrying a 12-pack of beer under one of his arms and sits down at the table. I say to the rest of the guys, "This could be a short night for me." I reach out to hand spacey a couple of 20s and say, "I'll start with $40 in chips." He says to me, "We don't play with chips here. We just use cash," as he starts to lay down some 100s onto the table. So I start thinking, "Oh *feces*! These guys are hardcore!" I start digging through my wallet again, and I find an old $50 bill and a $70 bill (hey, it's a dream, after all). I breathe a sigh of relieve. I'm thinking that I might be able to survive a little while if I can win the first couple of hands.

After everybody is seated (the rest of the guys are just faceless, nameless dudes that are common in my dreams), spacey calls out the first game, "Between The Sheets." (For those of who don't play cards, it's a stupid game that takes no skill and is marginally more complex than the Card Sharks game show.) I laugh and say, "What kind of crap is that? That's not even real poker. I'm outta here!"

The End.

"I told you *goshdarn* missionaries to leave me the *fudge* alone!!!" Cussing Cussing Cussing

That's a pretty cool dream though.  I'm totally getting an Architect vibe from your description of dystopia.  Pretty much confirms my deepest suspicions.

I'm a bit busy with work right now, but I can parse that dream for you later.

Aside from not really wanting to ride a bicycle up the hill to my house, especially after leaving an upscale bar, the rest of that dream is totally feasible. Particularly the mauve accents part.

I'm not going to get into the whole mauve accents thing, I'm wondering how you ended up a bachelor.

Gleek, you need to lay off the peppers (or whatever) before beddy by.

And was this the Dystopia you met in the bar? If it is I have REAL concerns for you.

Oh, that part's inevitable. She'll eventually leave me for spending all my free time talking to imaginary friends on teh interwebs.

 Spit Take lmao

Hey, if you ever want to "fulfil the prophecy" and meet at an upscale bar and bounce around biz ideas, let me know. (NDAs are cool with me assuming the ideas don't conflict with anything I'm currently working on)

I just put in my two-week notice last Thursday to pursue my own projects, all mobile-related.

LOL   Thumbs Up  That's good stuff.

spacey knows me too well.

BTW, I want in on this 800 million dollar cell phone address book.  Let me know the name of the upscale bar, and whether or not I need to bring more than a 70.

Dude seriously comes into work, hit's the can, and knocks one out?  Maybe I'm more naive than I like to think, but I'm having trouble getting a grasp on that.  So to speak.

I was going to put air-quote emoticons around it, but you already have it in quotes.


Run, Gleek, run!
