Mama Dawg, The Demon Slayer

I had the most awesome dream on Sunday night.

As you know, I like my Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Don’t judge. It’s a well-written show.

That and it has hot male vamps. Hello, Spike! You can find me here on this blog every day!

That being said, it was an awesome dream.

I dreamed that all these demons were breaking into my grandmother’s house where a bunch of us lived. I can’t remember who all lived there but it seemed like it was people from high school, a couple of bloggers and some friends.

At one point, I realize that LOML is not with me and I go to find her. I find my mom and LOML is with her all safe and sound. I start getting all teary and say that if we’re all gonna die, I want her to be with me when it happens. My mom wearily nods her head and passes her on to me. For some reason, she was in a helicopter.

Anyway, she flew away. Demons were coming at me fast and furious and I couldn’t very well fight them off with LOML just hanging around.

We ran as fast as we could behind the house where I found some rope. Somehow, I got the idea in my head that I would just tie her on to my back and I would fight the demons with her strapped on like that.

I also had the problem of trying to keep a backpack strapped on that had all of our supplies plus food inside of it. So, I just strapped that on her back.

At this point, I look like a deformed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

However, for some reason, it seemed to work.

I went back out into the fray and slayed demons left and right.

Despite the obvious danger elements, I woke up feeling invigorated and driven.

On the way into work, I started thinking about the dream.

I remember a lot of my dreams when I wake up but I don’t really take the time to analyze them. Usually the dreams consists of snippets of conversations or TV shows or thoughts I’ve had during the day.

But this one stayed with me long after I awoke.

And I realized that what I felt during the dream was a sense of purpose. I had a goal.

Granted, the goal was to not get killed by a demon, but still…I had a reason for fighting. A reason for living.

Now, I know, I know. LOML IS reason enough for living.

And I’m quite content in my little neck of the woods.

But I feel like I need to be doing MORE. You know?

I need to have something to strive for. Some sort of attainable goal. Something that makes me passionate.

I don’t have that in my life.

I’m not really a passionate person. I have brief moments of great passion, but they fizzle before I can really even come to terms with the idea/goal/object.

I’m working on something that I think might give me the release I’m searching for.

However, it’s a project that takes patience.

And as my mom can attest, that’s something I sorely lack.

So, I’m trying to curb my impatience. I’m trying to wait to see if I can breathe some life into it.

Sigh…..I hate being patient.

17 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:

Jaden Paige

Best of luck!! I hope your project gets a good running start... when will you tell us about it?? ;)

Twenty Four At Heart

I'm also short on patience for long projects, but I wish you much luck. I also had a dream ... and I also wrote about it. But no demons in mine. Heh .....!

Irish Gumbo

Oh, dear. I could have written this post.

I know whereof you speak. One thing i have learned, though, is that sometimes you have to sit still and quiet to get that butterfly to land on your finger.

Or in more dudely terms: It took me months to finally beat my best friend in racquetball, and i did it twice in one day, only because I stopped caring about winning and just played. It was a beautiful thing...:)


That sounds like the dreams I have...
Patience Smatience

Swirl Girl

short on patience - long on hope...


I am a patient man...very much so....but I don't dream and .....fuck Buffy and her fake-ass vampires!


Hate those shows.

Sarah's Blogtastic Adventures

Good for you!! I feel the same way sometimes. Searching for the whole reason I am here type of thing! Good luck!! : )


Figure out what you're going to be passionate about and let me know. I will be passionate vicariously through you-kinda like buy one, get one free.


i have these dreams. A LOT. i'm always having to run or fight or something... always trying to save people. usually i wake myself up from horrible nightmares but sometimes, once in a while, i get one that isn't so traumatic. i'm glad you kicked ass :)

Captain Dumbass

LOML ever gets sucked into the Hell Mouth, you call me. I got your back, sister.

And Coldplay is awesome. Hater.


I get dreams like that too when I watch too much Buffy. And, you can't have Spike because he's already mine. Good luck on your new project.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher

Wow, amazing details in your dream. I agree, I think the most important part of the dream is how you felt about it when you first woke up. And that it stayed with you.


I am definitely goal-oriented, also. I keep a long term list, a short term list, and a daily list of things I want/need to accomplish. I am going nuts right now waiting for law school in the fall.


What a cool dream!! Sometimes I'll have one that ends up sticking with me for a long time. When I first read your dream, I thought you said that you were at your grandmother's house with a couple of CLOGGERS. Now that would have really said something about you....demons, cloggers, grandma...amazing. But I'll settle for bloggers. Hey, did I die?

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy

what a dream!

yeah, that patience thing is tough sometimes. Well, all the time. but hang in there, cause you will find what you are looking for!

Jennifer and Sandi

Practice, Practice, Practice!!!

Happy Hump Day!

I have no patience at all. And I'm the master at starting something and realizing it is going to take FOREVER to do, so I just quit because I don't have the patience to finish it. yeah, stupid.
