the blog identity

i woke up, sheets twisted and slightly damp. mid-leap over a tall building, running. the bad men were coming....

the dream was full of all of you. an underground network of bloggers trying to save the world. some of you were not as lucky as others as the web of intrigue spun itself in circles all over the world. one of you was driving a car very fast. way too fast. another was making a hand off: a secret double chambered pocketbook (espionage yarns cannot use the word purse, people) went into the hands of the guy we thought was on our side but perhaps turned out not to be. one of you spoke perfect french and was as exotic a creature as i've ever seen. another of you lost a finger. that part sucked. sorry about that.

twisty curvy. some of you were fleeting and others in and out of my consciousness all dream long which felt like it went on all night long. at the end I have no idea if we thwarted the evil crime ring but I do know we were trying really, really hard. And we were pretty damn smart about it.

And we were hot. oh daddy-o....crimefighting bloggers are smoking.

Yeah baby!

Though it sounds exhausting. I hope you get a nap later.

Christine said...

sizzlin' hot, baby.
sizzlin' and smokin'!

QT said...

Hopefully I had machine guns hidden inside my cone bra ala Austin Powers.

But I agree, it DOES sound exhausting. Do you need a nap today??

Kyla said...

I love it!

Blogging sure does get into the subconscious. I had BlogHer dreams every other night for the first two weeks I was home. How's that for escapism? *lol*

too funny...

kristen said...

losing a finger, taking one for this team, sounds quite noble. good thing it's sunday!

I've dreamt about bloggers and blogging before. I'm not really sure what that says about me, lol. I do think there are some amazing women in the blogosphere. You are one of them.

Beck said...

I hope it wasn't my finger. I like my limbs and appendages.

mamatulip said...

That's awesome. I dream about bloggers too but they're never crime fighting dreams.

i don't mind losing a finger as long as it's for a just cause. and not my middle finger, cause, you know, that one comes in handy flipping off the bad guy who is chasing me.

slouching mom said...

Ah, but last night I was speaking French. And my French was so rusty that it gave me tetanus in my finger. Sadly, it had to go. Chop chop.

MWAHAHA!

Off topic -- but I don't know how else to bring this up. I would like very much to suggest to those who vote for Just Posts that you consider an excellent post at http://stumblingandmumbling.typepad.com/stumbling_and_mumbling/2007/08/the-tangible-ha.html

Write me of that link didn't come out right.

flutter said...

Dude, I want your dream. Please tell me I didn't lose the finger. I need that for directing traffic.

Tabba said...

wow. i so wish i could have that dream too;)

very hot.

Magpie said...

LOL!

Oh, The Joys said...

Dude. I'm still winded from last night.

Heh.

Gwen said...

Heh. Last night I dreamed about a blogger, too, only she was going all Mean Girl on me and making me look foolish in front of everyone. Your dream sounds better.

Bon said...

you know, as you started describing your wicked cool dream, i got all excited like i was reading a movie review and i was gonna get to see this, see who starred in which role and who lost her poor finger and then...poof! i realized you never, never, film your dreams for us, you dream-hog. poo.

um...if you can get hold of some kinda brainwave machine though, i do think your brief description sounds way better than the movie i watched last night.

thailandchani said...

Gee, sounds like an active night! Were you tired when you woke up?



Peace,

I bet you couldn't go back to sleep after waking up to that dream! Crazy! :)

Momish said...

I want so badly to say it is an omen of things to come (minus the lost finger, of course) and that smoking crimefighting blooger chicks are the next new wave!

Bring on the bad guys, they can't touch us if we stick together!

But alas, all I can hear is my mother's practical voice saying "it must have been something you ate".

Aliki2006 said...

Better yet, let's just take over the whole world and establish peace and goodwill and an end to everything bad everywhere.

How's that?

liv said...

oh, just please tell me I did something cool! :)

bgirl said...

smirkin' on my couch in the city.

bad-ass chicks -- so hot.

Jennifer said...

Hoo, doggie. Crimefighting bloggers unite!

What a dream! Do you think you have blogging too much lately? lol

Susanne said...

Crimefighting bloggers... what a dream.

I agree that taking a nap might be a good idea.

meno said...

I hope you won't reveal my secret crime-fighting indentity!

Julie Pippert said...

Oh cool...action/adventure! I'm very good at leaping tall buildings in a single bound, you know, if you ever need that for a future dream. ;)

OH! I hope I was wearing my skintight cat suit with killer boots!

NotSoSage said...

sounds about right.

amusing said...

Sounds like "Children of Men" meets BlogHer.

I dreamt that there was a course I forgot to take and I don't actually get my degree....

PunditMom said...

Do we get to wear capes?

ewe are here said...

Gawd I hope it wasn't my finger. I have enough problems. ;-)

The Expatriate Chef said...

Damn, my French is rusty. Must not be me. Oh well, next time.
