How does that work out for you...

I rarely have dreams, but when I do...they're usually boring. Sometimes, though, they really irk me. Like, I'll sit in bed in the middle of the night for an hour or so trying to figure out what kind of deeper meaning it holds. Then I'll end up spending the greater part of the day just thinking about...during classes or while chatting on aim and such. And then....then there are those dreams that come very few and far between that just really, really confuse me. So much so that I don't even bother to try and figure them out. I had one of those dreams two nights ago. I'm a bit foggy on the details, but I'll explain it as best I can...

The setting is inside a KFC. I'm there with my immediate family and I'm trying to decide what I want. The menus, however, don't have anything that I want (the menu is huge, btw. Like, it spans three walls). I'm looking for this other menu (like, a value menu or something) but I just can't find it. My family goes ahead and starts ordering. After my brother orders, this steel door on the side of this side wall opens up and steam and smoke is flying out of it. It is immensely lit from the back. Out walks some incarnation of Grimace. He was like the future grimace or something. There were tubes and stuff around him. Sorta like Grimace if he had been assimilated by the borg. At this point I'm just like, "whoa!" and then he's just gone. Instantly. Door closed, smoke cleared. Gone. However, the intensity or wind or something managed to blow this banner from one side of the menu (on that wall) to somewhere else, and it revealed the menu I was looking for.

That's when I woke up. How one even begins to analyze that is far beyond me. I don't think I even wanna know what its deeper meaning is. It doesn't even begin to add up. I've been inside a KFC less than 10 times in my whole life. My family, to the best of my knowledge, has never gone there together to eat. The Grimace don't even....guh. And even if he had managed to reveal some sort of menu, I have no idea what I'd order.

So this really perplexes me. I'm gonna go drink mountain dew and code things now. It should help me clear my head. Meh.
