Dreams. Strange. But intriguingly so. I wonder what they are all about.

When I was young I had this recurring dream about a massive weiner dog. It was as big as a house, and was travelling across the country causing chaos. My dad and uncle would try to capture this huge wiener dog, and it would then try to eat my sister and I would be sad about this. This makes no sense.

The other week I woke up with a jolt. I had dreamt of a chicken spider. Yes....there were chickens, with many legs that crawled walls, and one snuck up behind me and kinda stuck it's neck out at me and clucked. I jumped enough that it woke me up.

A few days ago, I awoke crying my eyes out. I dreamt I was a waitress and I had 3 tables. I had gathered orders for 2, but forgot about the 3rd and the patron yelled at me, as well as did my 'boss'. I was so frustrated and confused by all this...I started to cry in my dream, and woke up just bawling and feeling awful about the entire ordeal!!

I have mentioned my ninja turkey dream, and I have had this one several times. And just so you know, I have nothing against poultry ( I did see a live turkey though at a petting zoo recently, and wow...Fugly. Scary fugly!!) I have terrible nightmares as well...they are vivid and very very real. I feel the terror even after I wake up and sometimes cannot fall back to sleep. And if I do, alot of times I just continue dreaming like I've hit pause on a movie and resumed play!

Not all people remember their dreams. I remember nearly all. The feelings of them linger, and sometimes follow me throughout the day. I have in the past tried to interpret some of them, but now choose to just decide what they mean to me, and me alone. Maybe they mean nothing at all?
