foiled...

so, remember that one time i had that one dream giveaway? well, it pretty much blew up in my face. i have not had a dream with one recognizable person in it (except the husband who didn't even enter the giveaway) since i posted that fantastic giveaway idea. and i am being completely honest!

i think i have dreamed every night. and one of two things happens 1) when i wake up i can't remember my dreams, or 2) in the dreams i can remember i have no idea who those characters are- total strangers. i have come to the conclusion that the giveaway really created a lot of pressure for my dreams. it's pressure, guys.

so. forget about the dream giveaway... for now. my best advice is that you should move on to someone who has a real giveaway, cause obviously my dreams just aren't producing right now. sorry for all the hype. i know you guys were way excited at the thought of starring in one of MY dreams.

but, i think i will keep this one on the back burner, cause who knows, some night i'm going to see a whole bunch of thin, young, perfectly-coiffed, spectacle-less, dressed to the nines, free-day-loving, magically flying, jessica alba-ish, independently wealthy, laundry-hauling, snow falling, pregnant ladies with chocolate and no gray hair and i will instantly recognize you. and then you better be ready for the alert that you WON THE DREAM GIVEAWAY! i have faith it could happen.

I think you covered all of us who entered in the post...no need to feel foiled...that's what makes most dreams so wonderful, you never know what you're going to dream until you do...what really freaks me out is dreaming happens in a few seconds but sometimes feels like you have been doing it for hours ( especially the bad dreams) !

I wouldn't worry too much. My wife and I often laugh at the differences between our dreams. She constantly has dreams where she has to save her sister, our daughter or me from a bunch of vampires, zombies or some other creepy people, and I have dreams about vacuuming or doing dishes.

Waaaaah! Okay, I've quit crying and you know what? I'm okay. I'll be okay even though you aren't going forward with it. Wow, I really want you to have your "normal" dreams back! That's more important. Have a great thanksgiving!! Dream a little turkey for me.

What a bummer! I was ready by my big debut and everything!

I'm the same with most of my dreams. Absolutely no recollection. Except this morning I had a really freaking dream. With some renaiassance king who was gonna break the nose of the guy I was with. I somehow held him at bay by wrapping my leg around his, trying to prevent him from moving. The guy was like 6'5" and I was terrified but I HAD to do it.

Weird.

I love the description of all those who entered the giveaway! That sounds JUST LIKE US!!!

Still like you anyway! Have a great Thanksgiving. Turkey is supposed to increase serotonin levels, or something like that. Maybe that will help in the dream department! Enjoy!

I find that I dream about people more often when I am trying NOT to think about them!
Happy Thanksgiving!♥
