Dreams. Go Figure.

I rarely talk about my dreams here. No, wait, I actually never talk about my dreams here.

But last night I dreamed about being in some sort of polyamorous marriage with Mark Ruffalo and Tilda Swinton, and having twins with Ruffalo, a girl named Ishtar and a boy named London. Who I had to introduce to an older boy and girl who I think must have been their half siblings courtesy of Tilda.

I ... I think I'm afraid to go back to sleep.

Ruffalo was absolutely lovely, mind you.

It may be sad but I had to look up those names. I really am out of touch with popular culture but I do know far too much about certain video games.

See, you know about a part of popular culture of which I'm almost completely ignorant, so I rather think we balance out. Heh....

Well, that's certainly.... interesting!

It's certainly a reminder that one never knows about one's sub- or unconscious.

For instance, I admire Swinton (although I wasn't happy that she signed a petition in support of Roman Polanski), but my admiration is almost entirely intellectual. Being in a relationship with her? Not a thing I'd embark on in real life. (Mark Ruffalo was a different thing entirely; he really was sweet in the dream.)

Ishtar and London, though ... I remember thinking that it was perhaps bad to name a child after one of the great movie flops, but somehow it became her name nonetheless. And London seemed to be a completely reasonable name for a boy. Dream logic is anything but.

I used to have a stuffed toy cat called Ishtar. Never saw the film, but it was on a lot of video trailers and I must have like it.

I've never seen the film either. It's commonly thought of as one of the great movie flops, but I've also read the occasional essay stating that it was a much better movie than its circumstances might suggest.

I think for some films the critics are determined to hate it no matter what, even before they've seen it!

Yes, part of me wants to see the movie, to judge for myself. But I have so much television on my "to watch" list that it's probably best I not add to it. Heh.

Dreams can be really inexplicable sometimes, and that one really really is! :loL:

I told someone that I'm always a little disoriented and sad upon awakening from dreams in which I, for any reason, embark on a relationship with someone. Because, for at least the duration of the dream, I truly fall in love, and awakening to find that it was all some odd neuronic glitching is a trifle melancholy.

But Ishtar? And London? Now I'm going to have to write something with characters who have those names. Heh.

Oh, man, I would KILL to have a dream like that! I'm so jealous! 99.99% of my dreams involve missing trains and/ or being late for something. : (

The nicest dream I ever had, David Tennant came as a guest to the college where I work. He was making some kind of appearance/ presentation in the college theater (which actually makes sense, as the theater is well-known locally for its family-friendly productions), and I was his hostess/ minder for the day. In my dream, he was so lovely and enthusiastic about the chance to talk to kids who wanted to go into theater for a living. And of course, it was a beautiful, sunny, spring-like day. Kind of a bummer to wake up from a dream like that, but it was awesome to have had it at all.

But Mark Ruffalo AND Tilda Swinton in the same dream? That's like hitting the sleepyland lottery. And I am SO going to write a story someday with kids named Ishtar and London!

Your dream with Tennant sounds lovely!

I don't get dreams like this very often either, which is what left me gobsmacked about it in the first place. Yeah...Swinton and Ruffalo together? Not sure what my subconscious was thinking when it put them into the same dreamscape. I had more contact with Ruffalo in the dream; Tilda was sort of there, like some pale omniscient godlet. Heh.

And I am SO going to write a story someday with kids named Ishtar and London!

Heh - let's both do that, and then compare our stories! (It makes me want to open up an "Ishtar and London" fic challenge, but I've never organized a challenge and haven't the least idea how to do it.)

The Tennant dream was definitely one of the best ones I've ever had.

ROTFL about Tilda as a "pale omniscient godlet."

Maybe someday I can have a dream about meeting Ruffalo on a train--hopefully not one I'm running late for. : )

-hopefully not one I'm running late for.

I hate dreams like that; so perhaps you can have a dream about meeting him in a nice restaurant? To which he's invited you?

I would love a dream like that! Anything that doesn't involve running for a train. : )
