I dreamed Friday night that galinda822, photogoot, and I were in a large, underground mall/theater. We were running into numerous problems as we tried to circumnavigate the area, as all the hallways not only interconnected at seemingly odd places, but some were very lengthy, twisting hallways with no exits except an auditorium, most of which were filled not with moviegoes, but event attendees. The three of us got separated often, and cell phone coverge inside the facility was shotty. photogoot and I had our cameras (rather, I was carrying his PowerShot G5) and were looking for interesting things to photograph along the way. Unfortunately, by the time we found a good shot, various intermissions from the many rooms always seemed to spoil our shot with an excess of activity. At one point, I sat in the back of a theatre as the members were filing back in for the next leg of their presentation, but got kicked out since I didn't have a event badge. Having enough of this, I was lucky to find a small tiki bar at a quiet corner of the mall. Lots of people were filing back to their location. I asked the bartender for a hefe weizen. He begins, "The hefe-weizen is a dark, malty beer..."
"Yes, I know what a hefe-weizen is, I lived in Germany!" I interuppted. Sheesh! He left to go get my beer, but never returned. I was thankful for the peace and quiet with the crowds gone, but my unease was growing since I hadn't seen my two companions in awhile. Finally, they both show up laughing and jovial. I told photogoot about the bartender trying to describe a hefe-weizen to me, and he showed me pics he'd taken of galinda by some framed works of art which were actually hammered copper. The bartender had left his Canon Rebel XTi behind the bar, and I considered stealing it, beacuse he was such an ass, but another intermission let out and I lost my friends in the bedlam which ensued. Fine. I had to go to the bathroom anyway. It took forever to find one, and when I did, it was a dark, cavernous locker-room type place with thousands of stalls and a moist, wet floor from the huge open-bay shower area. I picked a stall and went to close the door, but suddenly there were hundreds of men in there yelling and sceaming as if a winning game had just finished - and all the doors had dissapeared from the stalls.






Many thanks to the special gift rec'd yesterday from somebritinmass. It's my favorite, and I will place it tenderly into my care. And Daisy says, "Meow."

Sounds like we were at a combination of:

1) The Fox Theatre
2) The new Busch Stadium
3) The Mills

I'm sure all the yelling and screaming was due to the St. Louis Cardinals winning the World Series friday night. woohoo!!! It also sounds like you were in the mens room when it happened - missing all the action. :)

Or maybe you're just looking forward to photogoot coming to St. Louis. You can spend the day down at the riverfront taking beautiful photos of our historic downtown area.

Hey - that's a fantastic idea!

The Cardinals won the world series? That's baseball, right? Is this going to impact my drive to work or anything like that?

You would need to have what would reasonably qualify as a commute to have an actual impact to said event!

Are you in the market for a new camera, or are you simply just dream-obsessed (maybe reality-obsessed, as well) with your current photo-taking device?

Or D (none of the above)?

That was a good bed time story. I am too tired to dream, so I will enjoy yours. I love what you have been doing to your banner images, very nice sir.

That was a neurotic bedtime story and it would drive a person to drink - NO ESCAPE!

I don't know why, but I started thinking about that scene in Jacob's Ladder where Tim Robbins' character is on a gurney, being pushed through dark hallways through that hellish hospital where people had no faces and it was dirty and chaotic. Some imagery, huh? I've always hoped that I would never have a dream like that.

I'm just glad you didn't have that same nightmare/bad dream.

Yes, that's a very accurate description actually, minus of course all the blood and body parts on the floor.

Let me guess, you were the smallest person there and the dream ends with you getting analy raped?

No, and thank you for allowing me to clear that up.
