Father Ted - Road Block

Where did the weekend go and how is it that I got so laughably little done?

I've decided I have a nightmare problem. Well, I have known for a long time that nightmares seem to be my natural go-to in dreamland, but lately it's been getting ridiculous.

For example, last night I went to an Irish friend's house for a Father Ted marathon, and this was the final episode, "Speed 3". If you watch the clip you'll get an idea of the sheer ridiculousness of the show.



And yet, somehow my gray matter twisted the evenings entertainment into a nightmare that involved me having to drive a bomb-laden car to my epi prof's house to be disarmed. I awoke, very much afraid and then very much irritated at the realization that I can't even watch Father Ted without having to worry about my subconscious interpretation once I am asleep.

It is a drag. I mean, I'd really like to see Black Swan but I might actually have a heart attack in my sleep.

Reminds me of Mr. Bean, but they talk.

Maybe it was a knowledge bomb? Eh? Eh?

I know "sometimes a cigar is just a cigar", but I love that the most intense dreams often feel like they are laden with symbolism.

And you've just reminded me I have the Christmas special tucked away in iTunes somewhere...

I'd have nightmares if I'd watched that much British comedy in one sitting too....

Maybe some Monty Python?
