28 Zombies Later...

Strange, what ends up in your dreams. 

To set the stage:  First, we had gone to see (edit: Not Danny Boyle's. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's. Boyle did the first one. Chris nagged me until I made this edit.) 28 Weeks Later.  (It terrified me and I watched the majority of it through Chris's sleeve.  But I do respect Danny Boyle's affinity for Muse.)  Second, we've been spending a lot of time apart due to Chris's project, so there's been that undercurrent of hypoglycemia fear.  And thirdly, the cats have been very annoying.

Yesterday morning, Chris admitted to having had a nightmare.

"I had the weirdest dream.  It was so real."

"Really?  What happened?"

"It was like 28 Weeks Later.  We were in my old house and the zombies were there.  They were tearing through the house and you were low.  There was no food.  I was only able to find like a quarter of a cup of juice.  Barely any juice at all."

"I was low in your dream?  That's odd."

"Yeah.  You drank the juice but it didn't do much.  In my dream, I found half of an English muffin and I had it in my hand, but you know how dreams are, and all of a sudden I couldn't find the English muffin."

"What?  It had disappeared?"

"It had.  So we ran upstairs and we were hiding in my sister's old room and you were completely out of it.  Walking around, mumbling to yourself.  I was holding the door shut and the zombies were pounding on the other side.  There was a big, white bureau in there that I kept asking you to push in front of the door, but you were barely coherent, you were so low."

"That's scary.  Then what happened?"

"This is where it gets awful!  I have my feet braced against the floor and my back against the Siah Sausage Muffin.door.  There are zombies pushing to get in.  You're completely low and just about passed out.  And then the stupid cats start climbing all over me!  Prussia came up and sat on my lap, Siah was purring in my face ... it was ridiculous!"

I couldn't help it.  I started laughing.

"I know!"  Chris looked exasperated.  As he was talking, Siah was winding herself through his ankles.

"Zombies.  Lows.  The stupid cats.  And a missing English muffin."  I said.

I think we need another vacation.  Diabetes and zombies?  Our lives are becoming tangled in our dreams and there isn't even a decent soundtrack.

Do you ever get that weird feeling when the cats start circling you like they are going to lick you to death!! I feel like that sometimes when my cats and my fiancee Ann's cats start circling us when we wake up in the morning.

That cat on an english muffin made me laugh out loud. Love it!!

Oh my goodness....such an event with no soundtrack....that will not do for the Oscars!

Great blog and funny post, I like it!!!! Trouble is I'm now day-dreaming of English muffins - Thanks!

Did you ever see "Panic Room" with Jodie Foster? Nearly the same scenario minus the cats, and the english muffin.

Dreams are weird, aren't they!

28 Days Later (i.e. the first one) makes it on to my list of favourite films of all time, but I have to admit that I found it psychologically disturbing enough that I dreamed about it for weeks.

Love the picture!

Perhaps the cats being annoying are their way of being helpful while Chris is away?! They think if they follow you around then they know you are OK. I never said it made sense, we're talking about an animal with a brain the size of a walnut here!

Well, you know we did get taken over by zombies yesterday.

So funny! I have the weirdest dreams like that, that never make sense, but somehow always have something very real in it. Sounds so familiar!

Haha how did the zombies look? I can't imagine seeing one in my dreams 'cause the only time I see those are in movies & it's rare too... only once in a blue moon a good zombie movie comes out... did you get to see any celebrity zombies like the ones on www.hollywoodzombies.com?
