My dream last night... - Tina Marie's Ramblings

My dream last night...
I've gone back to taking melatonin at night in an attempt to at least get some sleep every night. The only problem is that it gives me these really, really disturbing dreams (and makes me a bit on the grumpy side the next day).

We were having a party for the whole dev department at Bindview. You know the type: one of those "Somebody's having a birthday, so let's use it as an excuse to take a break and eat bad birthday cake". Halfway through the party, somebody somehow figures out that whatever we were drinking was going to make us die horribly of some disease.

So, being developers, we decided that the only solution was to kill ourselves now, so we didn't have to suffer. Cecil and Ann ended up in charge, and we all tromped off to the basement (presumably to make the resulting cleanup easier).

We spent a bit wandering around, telling each other how much we loved each other, except that something about this disease meant that we couldn't hug each other. Somewhere in this, my best friend from high school showed up.

We all got paired off with partners (I got Toni Neumann), then we stood in this giant circle holding hands. The plan was that Cecil had this taser-like thing, and he was going to shock himself with it, but since we were all holding hands, it would kill us all.

I decide that I just can't do this, and wander around trying to convince other people to leave the circle without any success, so I ended up standing in the back of the room watching.

After a few unsuccessful zaps with the taser-thing, somebody's Blackberry starts beeping, and when they answer it, they've gotten email that we aren't really all going to die, so everybody gives up, mills around for a few, then goes back to work.

And then I woke up.

Perhaps not sleeping at all is a better choice.

Do you think this means I'm not a team player?

Re: Have you met my wife.

I think I'd go nuts if I had dreams like that all the time...

(and I friended you. I'm sticking you in all my friends groups - if you're likely to be offended, tell me and I'll trim 'em.)

I've been going to this site for debugging my dreams, lately.

That dream sounds like some kind of horrible "ropes course" team-building exercise. Are you sure it didn't really happen? Maybe they spiked the punch with Versed so that we wouldn't fully remember the experience.

Dunno. Maybe that's really why Cecil isn't in the office this week.
