Kitsa, you just reminded me about one part of a multi-segmented weird dream I had the night before last (the other parts consisted of my house being haunted, a swimming pool being built into the road in front of my house, and a really strange camping trip). The part you reminded me of was that I was going to my friend's house, and I was driving. I am liscenced to drive and all, but I really get freaked out when I do it and don't drive if I can help it. So I'm driving down this road leading out of a parking lot and I'm about to drive from this road and turn left down a highway. Somehow, I turn left into the wrong lane, without realizing this until I see a bus about to hit me. I swerve so I'm on the shoulder of the road and go to make a U turn so I'm going the right way down that lane. My thoughts are "Dad's going to kill me if he finds out about this" (my dad was my driving instructor. Great father/daughter bonding there
) and "why didn't I think to look to see if cars where coming when I turned onto the highway?"
Last night's dreams were VERY strange. The first one was that I was wandering around on my high school stage with some other people (like we were practicing for a performance or something and we were just chilling) and somehow, we were discussing a fact which was brought up - that Barack Obama actually had George Bush's head growing out of his neck/shoulder base. This fact was stirring up a lot of fighting between the Republicans and Democrats, with arguments like that Bush was cheating and getting extra terms or that Obama's ideas were really Bush's ideas and proof that Bush was a good president after all. To make matters weirder, it was like Bush's head had been there for Obama's entire life, which made me wonder what Obama's childhood was like.
The second part of the dream was a little less weird. I was in a huge auditorium with lots of people. We were all there auditioning for some sort of a show/performance. Everyone had different talents. I remember one of the people who was auditioning was Lea Salonga, a famous singer who has provided the singing voice for Princess Jasmine and performed as Eponine in the Les Miserables Tenth Anniversary Performance. I wasn't sure at first what my act even was, then I realized that I was holding a violin so I decided to play something. I knew that even if I hadn't practiced in about a year, I should still be able to remember something like the "Entertainer's Theme". When it was my turn I got on stage, but I realized that I hadn't tuned or rosined it. To make matter's worse, the strings were all old and falling appart. I noticed one string that had broken, so I pulled it off, but then there were more and more and I was certain that every bow string would break and then I couldn't play.
Then I woke up.
