In which my subconscious betrays me

Had a pretty vivid dream where I was setting up my own lab.

It was a mostly-empty room. It wasn't that big. It was basically a blank slate. White walls, gray blinds on the windows. It had a door. I was starting to decide where things would go.

And I was overjoyed. I did not care that the room wasn't that big, or what the weather was like outside. I was just so happy to have the chance to see what it would be like to do it my own way, starting from scratch.

I was really happy when I woke up, like it had actually happened. Took me a few minutes to realize it was a dream, but then I was just grateful to my imagination for having let me experience that so vividly.

Hm, I'm not big on dream explanations, but you say it was your lab and basically everything was white and grey and undefined? Except for the DOOR? Did that dream mean: Get out?

;-) Not trying to upset you!

momphdstudent- I hope you're right, and that thinkerbell's joke is wrong.

actually I think the door part was more a reference to being able to close out the people in my lab who make it hard for me to express how I see things my own way (as in, they make a better door than a window).

and yes, the Virginia Woolf reference was not lost on me, either.

That wikipedia thing is hilarious! I guess you just have to laugh- or edit it yourself?
