WTF? Could I have had a worse nightmare?

Apparently eating corn chips and raspberry sorbet (not together 2 separate after dinner treats) is not conducive to good dreams. In fact it is conducive to jacked up murderous dreams where apparently everything I fear is going to attack me... So the dream starts out nice enough. I'm in the downstairs office where I meet a cute guy who is totally into me and flirting. We end up shopping together and I think he kisses me... turns out he is a serial killer and gets arrested and I think tried to kill me. We move on and I'm walking in a neighborhood where a couple of dogs come up to me. I think aww cute and go to pet one, no... this is a wild pack of dogs and they start chasing me with intent to maim I'm pretty sure... to a castle. Where I find out I have to kill the werewolves to make the dogs go back to normal. So suddenly I'm in a cabin with people I know (not in RL but like dream friends) and I keep having to talk to them and say their name so that they snap out of being werewolves. And I get bitten by a vampire. And towards the end of the dream a mass murder comes in and kills a whole bunch of people. That's when I wake up because this just got too weird... I'm pretty sure I don't want to look into what all these mean, but let's do it just for fun...

Murder: To dream that you witness a murder, indicates deep-seated anger towards somebody. Consider how the victim represents aspects of yourself that you want to destroy or eliminate. Note also that dreams of murder occur frequently during periods of depression.

Killer: To see a killer in your dream, suggests that an essential aspect of your emotions have been cut off. You feel that you are losing your identity and your individuality. Alternatively, this dream may represent purification and the healing process. You are standing up for yourself and putting a dramatic end to something.

Werewolf: To see a werewolf in your dream, indicates that something in your life is not what it seems. It is symbolic of fear, repressed anger, and uncontrollable violence.

Vampire: To see a vampire in your dream, symbolizes seduction and sensuality, as well as fear and death. The vampire represents contrasting images of civilized nobility and aggression/ferocity. It may depict someone in your waking life whose charm may ultimately prove harmful. Deep down inside you know that this person is bad for you, yet you are still drawn to it. Vampires also sometimes relate to decisions about sex and losing your virginity. Alternatively, to see a vampire suggests that you are feeling physically or emotionally drained. The vampire may also be symbolic for someone who is addicted to drugs or someone in an obsessive relationship.

Dogs: If the dog is vicious and/or growling, then it signifies some inner conflict within yourself. It may indicate betrayal and untrustworthiness.

Cabin: To dream that you are in or see a cabin in your dream, indicates that you succeed via your own means. It suggests that you are self-reliant and independent, yet still remain humble. You prefer the simpler things in life.

Castle: To see a castle in your dream, signifies reward, honor, recognition, and praise for your achievements. It foretells that your future will be a happy one, surrounded by the love of your children, generosity of neighbors, and comfort of friends. You are destined to a position of power, wealth, and prestige.

Ok, obviously you need to quit hanging around with Matty P.

And thanks for giving me the plot for my next script. I know a winner of a story when I see one. Don't worry, I will give you "story by" credit.

Geez, sweetie!

I don't watch scary [or horror] movies, so I can't comment on that bit.

But I would definitely avoid ice cream and chips before bed :P

Maybe your mind is trying to break out of some kind of lock? Do you have some kind of deap-seated urge?
... like canoeing across Lake Washington? :)

Strangely enough, I don't watch scary or horror movies either. I'm too high strung. Hell, the COMMERCIAL for Saw scares the crap out of me. :)
