Dream Analysis

I had an odd dream the other night. I was at some big meeting, in a big theatre, with most of my meds class, with some panel discussing something to do with either racial or sexual equality. Why, I don't remember. I was somewhere in the back listening to the discussions. One girl off to the side of the room kept interupting the speakers and going on and on... I couldn't figure out who it was; I didn't recognize the voice. I finally was able to see who it was; I immediately recognized her. "Oh, it's H..." I woke up soon thereafter, and it struck me. Who is H? Do I know H, or was H a figment of my imagination? After ten seconds or so, I remembered who it was: H was in my class in grade 8. In my dream, my brain had somehow brought up an image of this person, aged her appropriately, and then recognized her.

Amazing what the unconscious mind is capable of. Interesting to me, was that when I woke up, it took me a while to figure out who it was, so my conscious mind was a step behind the unconscious.

Anyways, I then wondered why my brain had resurrected H. Why H, given the number of people that must be stored away in the depths of my mind? Well, it ties into Degrassi, of course. My recent Degrassi Junior High overdose resulted in extreme exposure to the name 'H' (the name of one of the characters), and so the part of my brain that stored the name 'H', and people classified as H, was stimulated to send off some signals.

Okay, back to studying.

Had a great night of studying. Fun! :)

Yup, it's one of those. Only one way to find out which, though! Rent yourself some DJH.

I suppose you are referring to Heather Farrell played by Maureen Deiseach. If so, that is kinda weird because she doesn't seem to be one of the main cast members.

I had a pretty weird dream last night. My old boss had changed the focus of his lab and had to let a few people go. I showed up to my lab in the morning and they were all working in my lab. Very odd. Although I was happy to see some of them I panicked about how to pay for it. Anyway, when I entered the lab this morning it was empty, as expected.

That's the one. I guess that the twins didn't play lead in too many episodes, but they were always there hanging around. They did play lead in the mid-date-twin-switch episode: a classic.

Nice dream. You must have hiring anxieties. :) Or, you still don't have people to drink coffee with in the morning.

The unconscious is quite a mysterious thing indeed.
Stop watching degrassi. it's bad for your mind ;-P

I dreamt of someone I dont know last night. I know him only by his name, he's actually a psychiatrist at the local hospital where I live. We were in a gas station near my house (i know which one it was), and he was a checker, but my doc had called him so that he could prescribe me synthroid (which doesn't make sense at all)!
too much medicine in one day is bad for my mind :-P

Funny, I had a dream last night about being in a theater listening to a lecture on equality of some sort, with a blabbermouth of the feminine Earthling sex jabbering away. I recall seeing a male Earthling in the back whose head nearly reached the ceiling. Could that have been you by chance? Did you happen to see a pale green chap sitting in the third row?

I keep hoping that they'll start 'Degrassi: Medschool'. Now that would be a cool show.

The tall guy was me! Well, it makes you think, though, that just as cells are to a body, so are people to humankind, and humankind to gaia, and gaia to... universality? The strings of communication just get drawn out somewhat.
