007: The Almost Lucid Dream

In need of a quick nap after work, I laid my pretty little head to rest and was promptly swept into a 007-style chase-scene dream. Woo! Run! Chase the dude! Wait. You're being chased, too. Crap!

We were at some sort of Italian Villa, probably inspired by the fact that we played a gig here recently. Chase, chase, chase!

Then as I scaled some ladder, it occurred to me, "Wait. You're 007. This shit always works out. Settle down, man. It's gonna be just fine."

And then I woke up. Not but a few moments away from—lucid-dream style—pulling out my nifty human-flight-enabling gadget (thanks Q!) and soaring above the scenic countryside surrounding the estate.

Dang. What a let down. I mean, flying dreams are great. James Bond dreams are great. And lucid dreams are, I hear, great. But the chance to experience all three concurrently?

I'm sorry I messed it up by waking. I would have told you all about it.

But that's so cool, being able to tell yourself in a dream not to worry. You solved the problem, and the dream was over.

Sure, sure. But I almost flew!

Excellent, glamorous type of dream. I had a pretty lucid dream last night but it involved a gigantic, menacing cockroach/scorpion/trilobite type of bug and I didn't feel much like recording it when I woke up... Wah! I want some Italian Riviera stuff to dream about!

sounds like a fun dream.

i have lots of lucid dreams involving mafia-style get-rid-of-the-body type activities.

recently, it probably has something to do with that box set of sopranos DVDs I got for xmas.
