I Dream of PeeDee

Sunday, March 4, 2007

No, he wasn't dressed like Barbara Eden. Nor was I.

I knew it was inevitable, that sooner or later he'd show up in my dreams. And last night, he did.

For some reason, I was standing on my front porch and Pete pulls up in a pickup truck. (Flashbacks from Variety Hour, perhaps?) He jumps out and is wearing a flannel shirt (gee, where'd that come from?) and jeans. (Even in my dreams, I can't allow my brain to imagine the stretchy pants. ROFL)

(I'm also thinking he's probably not as muscular IRL as he was in my dream, *grin* but that's okay.)

So I was all excited because I'm finally meeting Pete IRL for the first time! Yay! He gives me a massive hug and we jump in the truck and go to the bookstore, where we proceed to walk around, pointing out our favorite books, then we wander into the erotica section and point out passages to each other, giggling like a couple of junior high school kids. We were shushed by some snot-nosed teenager who was the freaking MANAGER. Whatever.

At some point, we ended up in front of the Terry Pratchett books, where Pete tried to convince me that MOST of the books were actually GOOD, unlike the one I had picked up. So I bought one. (I can't remember which one, though...) Then we went around pointing out books we knew were by fellow AWers. I convinced Pete to buy a book by Jacquie D'Alessandro. LOL

After all this excitement, we went into a restaurant that was apparently attached to the book store, where we ate and talked and laughed for quite a long time. I was just thinking that we should get together more often when I woke up.

Sorry, thrill seekers, that really was it. ROFL I'd imagine it was pretty close to what would happen, should we actually ever end up meeting. Except for the pickup truck. And possibly the flannel shirt.

Oh. And the muscles. BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Cliffhanger ending. Typical.

TJWriter said...

LOL. That was great.

Melissa said...

Jacquie D'Alessandro, huh? Trying to get Pete to give up Nora, are you?

Carrie said...

RT - You're just jealous. Unfortunately, my therapist said that my dreams of you were actually the first things he'd seen where he *recommends* suppression. Go figure.

Pete said...

I feel so left out 'cause all my dreams involve is being Spider-Man, or having a lightsaber, or being the Flash, or boring things like that.

Woe is me. Woe. Woe!

TJWriter said...

Don't worry, Pete. Most of mine involve being attacked and having to fight for my life. It's always a battle in my dreams. Almost.

I have had a few AW dreams, which were interesting.

Pete said...

I've completely failed to have any AW dreams. It's so dull.

Once, I had a dream where I sat quietly at the computer and wrote a bunch of pages of a really good story, and then I woke up wondering when I'd fallen asleep and why I had stopped working on the story.

Of course, by the time I was awake enough to realize it wasn't real, I couldn't remember the story... :)

Uh oh. That one's gonna cost you, Pete :D :D

Pete said...

Buh-ring it.

Rllgthunder said...

Okay, how's this?

Carrie? Pete seems to be eluding to the fact that you, a great contributor to AW, are quite dull and not worth dreaming about. Sad, isn't it?

Good enough, Pete? :D

Carrie said...

Geez, RT - I haven't seen YOU dreaming about me either.

I'll just take my tassels and cry in the corner now. *sniffle*

Rllgthunder said...

My dreams are erotic, perverse, and involve anchovies.

I don't think this should be discussed in a public venue.

Oh...wait. Those are nightmares involving Pete. As you were.....

Carrie said...

So all those dirty PMs you sent me were really about Pete? What, did you just paste my name in over his? I'm offended, RT, deeply offended. I thought all that talk about pudding and marinara sauce meant something to you!

Pete said...

Rllgthunder needs to learn the difference between the words "alluding" and "eluding."

It's an important lesson for us all.
