piperx: Wahleecon dreams?

I've had lots of dreams about Wahleecon for the past month. They've died down lately but I had one this morning that I just had to share.

It was Wahleecon but it took place in Las Vegas at a much larger hotel with many more people milling around. I was so afraid that I would miss out on the goodbyes, I spent most of the time running around the lobby looking for anyone I knew. But there was one thing that seemed to be thwarting my efforts at every turn. The waffles.

For those of you who didn't get to partake in the Best Western's continental breakfast, they had iron-them-yourself waffles which were very yummy. But the waffles in my dream were already cooked by Emily's family. They had provided boxes of pre-made waffles for us. (The homemade kind, none of this Eggo business.) They just needed to be heated up. Well, the only way to reheat a waffle so it's crispy again is through a toaster. So I had to run back and forth from the motel lobby to the Bytheway's kitchen (which was conveniently attached to the motel) to check on the waffles. The waffles kept causing me delays. They got soggy because the toaster was full of water (from the stack of sliced ham in the other slot of course). I got lost on my way back to the lobby. Strangers kept distracting me. Bleh. I've had lots of anxiety dreams before but never after the fact. It was too funny. I literally woke up laughing.

Oh, and fellytone_k8's boyfriend looked like Patrick Swayze. A young Patrick Swayze with lots of hair. Not a mullet! He very sweetly came to pick her up from the motel. They were a very cute couple!

Is anyone else still having strange dreams? I can't be the only one.

Can't say my dreams have ever come true. But that's not such a bad thing. If my dreams came true, instead of giving birth to a baby last February, I would have given birth to Jo Rowling. 0_0

No yummy waffles at the Super K8, huh? If you really want to try them, just go to that Best Western before they close the breakfast down and act like you're supposed to be there. Blend in. You know, dress touristy.

I'm so glad I got to know you!

To quote Patrick Swayze, "Ditto". :D

P.S. Love the icon. Indeed.

Oh yes. Definitely sandals with socks. Maybe a camera. Fanny pack. Sun visor. That should do it.

Dude, this is so crazy! I have just had two wahleecon dreams the last two nights in a row.

I don't remember anything about last night's dream, except that fellytone_k8 was in it, also. But the night before that, I dreamed that we had gotten together for another convention, and one of the events was a kabuki-style play of the Harry Potter books. The only thing I remember about it is that there was this big scene that represented the Yule Ball. Afterwards, the actor who played Harry (his name was Dan, and he was very cute, but he wasn't Dan Radcliffe) and the actress who played Parvati Patil came out into the audience to talk to us and give us all hugs.

And then we were climbing on these giant spiderweb things, and I was joking around about something kind of silly, and Emma was right in front of me, and she turned around and grinned at me, but Susan turned around and gave me a disgusted look and said, "You're wierd."

And that's all I remember.

So no, you are not alone in your WC-related dreams. :D

Was any "Dirty Dancing" involved with Kate and Patrick?

No. They were um... well, let's put it this way, I'm glad there wasn't a turning wheel with clay handy.
