You tell me

How weird is it to have a dream that you are on a fishing boat with Art Garfunkel, Bing's Aunt Carolyn and a transvestite dressed up like Barbra Streisand?

Eating crackers with peanut butter on them?

Discussing the Casey Anthony case? (Me being the lone holdout saying that the jury HAD to acquit her since there WAS reasonable doubt even though I have this terrible feeling that she did kill her child and just got away with it. We are, after all, supposedly a Democracy and believe that one is innocent until proven guilty...)

And why did Art and Barbra catch some really pretty trout while I got nada?

What is the craziest dream that YOU have had?

A couple of years ago I dreamed that Adam Lambert came to town with the American Idol tour. I attended some kind of meet-and-greet and spoke with Adam for just a couple of minutes. As soon as I left the tent (yes, it was held in a tent, so what?), Adam stepped out behind me, took my hand, looked me in the eye and told me he wouldn't be continuing on with the tour. He said he felt like we had a powerful connection "here" (tapping a finger against his temple) and wanted to explore it further. This was such a sweet dream, although it made me laugh out loud when I woke up immediately afterwards. Even if Adam had felt some kind of "powerful connection" with someone of the female gender, I doubt he would have felt it with someone my age: 66 at that time.

I don't remember my dreams much once I wake up. Sometimes I remember little bits and pieces, but I can never tie them all together enough to tell someone about them.

And I agree with you on the Casey Anthony trial. As much as I think she probably did kill her daughter, and as awful as it is that she probably got away with murder, there was reasonable doubt and no physical evidence linking her to the murder. They had to acquit her. I had to distance myself from Facebook for a couple of days after the verdict because I couldn't stand all the griping about it.

You are not the only one who thinks the jury did the only thing they could... when the prosectution failed to prove how the child died, they automatically ruled out being able to put a name with the crime. It wasn't reasonable doubt in my mind, it was the failure of the prosecution. And not guilty ≠ innocent. We seem to forget that. In many ways jurors hands are tied because they only have limited choices. Our system does not allow one of the choices to be the prosecution did a poor job. It just sucks to be the case where the attorney/nies do a bad job.

I used to have flying dreams. I was at my cildhood ome, in the yard on the left, and when i would take a step I woudl go way in the air,like the guys walking on the moon. And my granpop is always there, watching me, even tho he lived 500 miles away.

And I agree with you about Casey Anthony - they couldn't prove it.

Oh, and the craziest dream I ever had was so long ago I don't remember all the details, but basically I was kidnapped by gangsters because I ws having a 'verbal' altercation with my husband. I was thrown in the back of a Cruella deVil type car, with such small windows in it I could not escape. And I knew they were going to kill me. And the only thing I kept thinking was "Great, I am going to die because I was fighting with my husband and he was the one who was wrong!" In my real life I knew exactly what that dream represented, but it still cracked me up that I was more concerned about being right than being dead. I am usually not that way.

I've had some weird ones but usually forget them after I've been awake for a couple minutes. You have some of the strangest dreams I've ever heard of. LOL Ref: Casey A., I listened to a commentary and he was saying that in Scotland (I think that was the country) they have a "Not Proven" verdict and that's exactly what this was. The jury believed she did it, but there was not enough proof to convict. So, in a way, the jury's hands were tied. I, too, have a horrible feeling that she got away with murder. At any rate, she's ruined the lives of many and one is extinguished. I just hope that she doesn't make a sinful amount of money from interviews, books and movies. Wish that could have been a stipulation of her release.

A transvestite dressed as Barbra Streisand is not such a stretch.

You're right about the Anthony case, and I also believe she did it and is a monster. My father was a criminal defense lawyer, which as a child I considered an immoral game in which the most clever lawyer won. He explained the presumption of innocence until proven guilty to me but I am still troubled by the fact that sometimes guilty people go free and even worse, innocent people are convicted.

One of the craziest dreams I've had was after the birth of my third child by emergency C-section. I was on narcotic pain killers and I dreamed that I flew across the Atlantic on a Milk Bone dog biscuit. When I gleefully told my doctor about it, he yanked the syringe out of the nurse's hand and said, "My little friend here is going on aspirin." It was the first time I actually understood the allure of drugs.

I agree with you on the Anthony case, and I knew before the verdict came in that there really WAS no other choice for the jury. However, I often wonder how many juries will convict on emotion and "feeling", rather than fact. I too believe that she in fact, did get away with murder. Sad -- sad, sad.

Take care of yourself Maria. Big, big old-friend hugs. Your neighbor in this big, old, giant 'hood...

That's one freaky dream. My dreams are often so realistic that I honestly think they have happened...

There are better people on that jury than I am. Because I would have voted to convict because she knows who did it even if she didn't do it. Which is why I would have been a bad juror. Now we'll never know what happened. I firmly believe that if this case hadn't been so scandalized that maybe the prosecution wouldn't have rushed and gotten enough evidence to convict.

What I find interesting is her defense destroyed what little familial love that was left for her and now she'll have no one. I hope the imfamy was worth it.

I can relate to the comments of not remembering dreams or remembering just nuggets. As a youngster and teen I had flying dreams. I wrote about being trapped in a field covered with frogs and something about my dad and a truck.

Recently the snippets have to do with a certain brunette who is messin' with my mind.

I dreamed that I had to hand in my Masters thesis to Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. That wouldn't be particularly odd if I'd studied film or theater, but my thesis was about Permian siltstones of west Texas.
