Dennis is purely awesome.

I had a fairly involved dream last night that I was taking my kid sister and brother to the airport. There was a nice bit on horseback, but the rest was nearly missed connections and an unpleasant haul. Fortunately, we'd left early, so they just barely made their flight. Can I tell you how little I want mundane dreams about regular chores? I once dreamed I inherited a stamp collection and spent the last fifteen minutes of the dream alphabetizing them. Boooo!

I want to be like Dennis. He used to dream that he could levitate, until he designed wings for himself and had them tattooed on his back. Now he soars through his dreams.

Aw, shucks.
I've gotten to use my wings to fly in dreams twice, both times it was really great. Just yesterday I was thinking about how I'd like to have another one of those soon, but I'm not quite sure how to make it happen. And then I log in today, and you're talking about them too! Cool.

I need to improve my dreamscape, it really sucks. There are indeed lots of chores. It's even more boring than real life. Sometimes I suspect that people who talk about cool dreams are making it up.

Some of us never have dreams, you should be happy to get anything.

And, as always, some smart ass will say, everyone dreams, you just don't remember them. Fine, maybe that's true, I don't know, but the result is the same.

You are on such a writing roll lately. I wonder whether sewage policy alone will provide sufficient scope for your talents. Heresy, I know.

My dreams last night cannot be described on a family-oriented site such as this one, but I enjoyed them a great deal.

I believe you don't have sleeping dreams, Justin.

Do you ever solve problems in your sleep? Figure out how to make a piece of code do what you want?
Just wondering...

I do a lot of that right before I fall asleep, if there's something I'm thinking about I'll lie in bed thinking about it. Or, I might wake up thinking about it again. But, I don't know about solving it IN my sleep.

And, Megan's got me. I don't have sleeping dreams, but when I'm awake I dream of bouldering V10, and climbing 5.14, and being rich. But, those are all likely still a long ways off.

I do a lot of problem solving in my dreams (math, fitting pieces together, whatever), but somehow nothing ever works out and I do them over and over and over again, and then I wake up enough to realize that I really just have to pee so I do and it is then (and only then!) that the never-ending problem solving stops. :)
-Mel, who regularly confuses the urge to pee with problem-solving dreams.

The dreams I hate most are about being at work. There's nothing worse than having to get up for eight hours of work feeling like you just finished eight hours of work.
