Sleep-Blogging

I took Spanish Classes throughout High School and then again during my years at the Y...  The language is in my blood (1/4 Spanish)  but finding it on my tongue... that was a bit harder!

I knew I had made a major language breakthrough when... (drum roll please) ...I started dreaming in Spanish.  I did - my dream self was conversing easily in her non-native tongue and chatting animatedly with all sorts of other people in said tongue.  It really didn't matter that some of the dream-people I spoke with weren't Spanish speakers.  Pshaw, why let reality ruin a nice dream?

The thing is... what does it mean when I start dreaming about blogging?  Last night my dream self typed up a killer post and it was so darn witty I kept thinking "I should write this down"...
I didn't, and now I'm upset over the lost post potential - just trust my sleep memory, you would have been rolling in the aisles (RITA... now THERE's an acronym that's not likely to  catch on...)

 Who knows, next time I might wander down here to the computer whilst I sleep and actually type it up... and then we'll move from "stream of consciousness" blogging to "unconscious blathering"

Nutz! I just so hate it when that happens! Only, I don't have to be sleeping to completely lose a great post written in the head. Hey, RITA is already the acronynm for a romance writing award--I forget what it all stands for, but trust me. I suppose that could be why internet users have always used ROTF--some of the guys out there might have felt a little put out being called a sissy romance writing winner. Not that they would know . . . OMGOSH! Word verifier says gortROFL (it's close--you have to admit, it's close!)

What a bummer you couldn't remember! But hey-at least you still got a post out of it:)

Phew! I'm glad I'm not the only one dreaming about blogging.

Um, we're all freaks, aren't we?

That is to funny to dream about blogging. That hasn't happened to me yet. Anyway, you have been tagged, so go to my blog and it will tell you what you need to do. Thanks.

Keep a notepad by your bed for those late night insights. In the morning you may find they weren't nearly as profound as you thought, but that may make them a lot funnier. Either way, it's a great post!

My clever sleeping thoughts might not be as clever as I think they are -- but since I haven't written them down lately - I can go ahead and think I'm very funny and clever. That means it's a good thing I didn't write it down right? I do think it's funny that you had adream about blogging. You must think about blogging lots.

Oh my goodness! I've written some amazing things in my dreams too. So amazing, that while I'm still dreaming I'm amazed with myself. But then once I awake - poof! It's always gone :(

Yes, please do blog in your sleep sometime :)

I have not yet dreamt about blogging, but I am keeping a notepad next to the bed because i always come up with great ideas while I'm trying to go to sleep. I wish the same thing happened while I was fully conscious!
