Weird creepy dreams

Night before last involved an old roommate being crazy and insisting that there was a thing in the living room that was freaking her out, but refusing to say what it was. I eventually figured out that it was a poster of Johnny Depp (WTF???). Also, there was this strange sort of dress rehearsal for a Masonic ritual going on. Many pastry chefs were involved.

Last night, I was trapped in the Natural History Museum, which is a place that holds a certain dread for me. Curators kept catching me napping in little alcoves and throwing me out of them. Eventually, I found this little courtyard garden full of fantastic plants and flowers, and I discovered something there... but I can't recall what it was.

Winter brings me strange dreams. Maybe it's a consolation for the depression. But, in fact, the depression hasn't been so bad in the last month I guess. I am eating better than usual and staying productive. Playing with Photoshop has been keeping my drive to create things happy. Nevertheless, I ache for spring. And I'm already thinking about gardens.

Do you fall asleep at night cuddling your Seeds of Change catalog?

Regrettably, I don't have a hard copy. They seem to have lost track of me since I moved. But I'm drooling over the website!

maybe your subconscious is afraid that your fandom is freaking out your loved ones? (roommate/JD poster)

the museum one sounds like it ended nicely, at least. i generally find dreams about gardens to be soothing.

and i'm extra-specially glad that you're feeling okay this winter! that's a real bonus for us SAD-types. *smooch*

But I really could care less about Depp. If it was a poster of Michael Shanks, that might be it. I think it relates to other things. But I'm gonna refrain from speculating here.

Thanks, sweetie. How you doin' with it?

Purchasing a light that helps with SAD doesn't cost a fortune any more and it really helps. Petco sells a lightbulb called full spectrum for about ten bucks in their lizardy care section. Purchase several and place them about your house especially at your desk in a light that is close to you. In addition take Vitamin D. Vitamin D is only activated by sunlight which this type of light mimicks. You can buy the real deal SAD lights for 50.00 now. They used to be much more expensive.

Beck and I have been having a rash of creepy dreams lately. I think ours have to do partly with we haven't cleansed this place since we moved in. One of hers involved talking tornadoes that had evil personalities and were chasing us all over some strange town.

The Masonic pastry chefs is really funny!

Re: Petco
Thanks so much for the SAD tips. I actually do have a lightbox. And I remember to use it about half of the time :)

You know, I have recurring tornado dreams too. Weird.

Masonic pastry chefs? I am consumed with curiosity. Closest I ever saw Masonic anything was a friend in Rainbow, although my grandfather was some sort of mucky-muck back in the day. I must know how my art is being used by the Illuminati!

Well, I'm not entirely sure the pastry chefs were real Masons. I think it's possible they were just acting out a charade to pass the time. It hard to tell with dreams.

So, you are a pastry chef? How cool. That's one kind of culinary work I could consider doing. I really love cooking, but as a vegetarian I'm sort of out of luck for being a regular chef.
