What a superb dream! I envy you :)

Ya, had Jurassic Park and Independance Day, Land of the Giants and all sorts, all rolled into one!

errr less cheese before bed time..or is that less chocolate?

cheese or chocolate?

*just baked chocolate cake....*

Both!... not at the same time, even *I* wouldn't try to do a cheese & chocolate melt!

I haven't eaten cheesy food for ages, so I don't know what these dreams are all about! They're not even nightmares, just bog standard wierd dreams... disappointingly non-scary!

Maybe your irratic sleep pattern results in a lot of sleeping in. This results in lots of periods of light sleep of the kind where you wake up fron really vivid dreams and hence remeber them.

This may well be true!

Definitely. When I have days off, and sleep in, I have these sort of dreams. Otherwise ... on my less that six hours a day ... nothing really!

It's the time when you wake up and then fall asleep again ... that's when the _brilliant_ dreams come.

Incidentally, you dream reads totally authentically. The whole thing is perfect dream logic! You must have written it down the moment you woke up.

You know that we don't remember dreams, don't you? We just rehearse them. Anything not rehearsed (re-remembered by conscious remembering) within a few minutes of waking, just fades into nothingness. That's why writing them down is good. If forces you to actually be aware of your dreams, rather than letting them fade to nothing. Just a thought.

I am in the habit of waking up (even if it's 3am or something random) and writing them down straight away. I know we don't remember them. I had several last night, but only wrote down the "biggest" one, and told myself if I remembered the others I'd write them down later. Oops. Didn't even recite them to myself or go over them in my mind! So I lost all of them!

I'd love to read some of your dreams though!

I used to have a lot of dinosaur dreams, but they only really seemed to involve the big carnivores such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Alliosaurus, etc. In the dream, I'd start out on the 10th floor of an office block for some reason, and I'd be rushing around trying to get people to hide under desks and stuff and then gradually get downstairs, because we were eye level for the dinosaurs and it was very easy for them to smash their way into the office block if they decided to come after us. So we were going down the stairs; you were safe if you could get to ground floor, as the dinosaurs couldn't bend down far enough to look in the ground floor windows. We were trying to get to the Underground - but that would mean leaving the (relative) safety of the office block and running through the streets, hiding behind trashed cars and trying to avoid being spotted by a dinosaur.

Wow, damn good dreaming! I can imagine doing all that :-)

I dreampt I turned in to a veloceraptor style dinosaur once.
It was a real cool morph sequence starting at my feet and working up. I love morphing dreams and this was one I had a few times in the time I first had such dreams about a decade and a half ago.

You didn't have to worry you know. If they have evolved TV with remotes they would have evolved TV dinners. There would have been a vacume sealed tray of Microwave ready humans in the fridge.

Ah, I have to admit now that I didnt reveal the whole truth! They were watching human tv channels, but as the world was taken over and the humans were eaten, the last channel went off air, hence the static.

Vacume sealed tray of Microwave ready humans in the fridge is a great image though! One day! Soylent Green Chilled!
