Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
Two nights ago, I had a fascinating and rather delightful dream. In the dream, I was thinking about the things I didn't like about the world (or even just the things that weren't quite to my taste), and I decided to change them. So I thought for a little bit about all the things I'd wanted to change, came up with a list, thought hard about them, and stepped out of this universe into one where the US had a parliament instead of a congress (and architecture more appropriate to a parliament than a congress), there were nude beaches all over everywhere, and the Middle East was a peaceful, thriving, safe place where the people trusted their governments and their neighbours. Iraq, for instance, was the sort of place a couple nice Jewish newlyweds from Brooklyn would feel entirely delighted visiting on their honeymoon.

Somehow, docorion and mud_puppy ended up following me by accident. Of course, I expected all the changes, since I had planned them. While they were generally pleased with the changes, they were constantly surprised by them and I was sort of explaining things and showing them around.

(I don't know exactly what happened to the docorion and mud_puppy from that universe. Since I'd created it to my specifications, of course, it had all my friends and beloveds and community in it, even though it had significantly different history.)

I've dreamed about being a political leader in the past, but I think this is the first time I've dreamed about creating an entire universe (albeit not from scratch).

hey, are you jewish?
Nope, but in the new universe of the dream, I was listening to a little piece on NPR about a Jewish couple's honeymoon to "Israel, Iraq, and Kurdistan." (My waking self disclaims any opinion on the wisdom of allowing Iraqi Kurdistan to separate from the rest of Iraq, but in the dream I evidently thought it was a good idea.)

gotcha. i guess in my somewhat just skimming (instead of carefully reading) my friends page, i assumed you and mare were the said honeymooning jewish couple featured in the dream. and rather than say, "hey, are you getting married?" which to some, may be considered a rude question, i went with the safer "hey, are you jewish?" mostly because I realized I didn't know.
