Ok look. I've written about my dreams that have been triggered by Earl and or his blog before. CLICK HERE
Then there was last night.
Earl, the man, was in my dream last night. Not content from his blog. Not the blinky man or the green man avatar, but Earl. In the flesh. Or, at least, what I thought Earl might look like. I've never met Earl and don't know his real name. He lives on the other side of the country from me. But it was unmistakable Earl.
I was back in college, a few weeks from graduating. I lived in the dorms with Earl, we shared a room. I came home late at night, all giggly from a date with Mr. Hall. Mr. Hall being there, in the background, can only mean one thing. (I'll get to that later.)
But, I had come home late at night. I usually don't see Earl much, despite living in the same dorm room. We have a good arrangement as roommates. We were just friends people, get your mind out of the gutter!
I tell Earl I like living with guys better, in the dorm. This holds true in my real life. I like working with guys more than I like working with women because guys are more straight forward and easy to read. There is a directness to men that appeals to me.
This directness was demonstrated by Earl when he took his sweatshirt off. He did it the way guys take off sweatshirts. He raised his arms, grabbed the back of the sweatshirt and pulled it up and over his head while bending slightly forward. Classic guy maneuver.Also see, the guy nod during an official greeting. And muttering the words, 'Sup' while performing the head nod.
Women are more dainty (we slip our arms out- then carefully lift it over our head-we don't want to mess up our hair!!) We also tilt our head, smile and say "Hi, how are you" while greeting others. Our voice goes up too.
And yes, he was wearing a tshirt! Pervs!
So-yes, good living arrangement. And really, at this point, I am 3 weeks away from graduating. Earl and I laughing and discussing our future graduation plans. He talks about Gia, his girlfriend. I talk about Mr. Hall. BUT!!!!
At the same time- I appear to be texting or sending some photos of myself to another guy. They are regular photos-no nudie shots (goddamn some of you people are naughty monkeys!) But, photos like in the last post. I am sending them to a guy Earl knows. I can only assume this is Slyde.
Because dammit now HE IS GETTING IN ON MY DREAM ACTION. And honestly, I really think it is Slyde because of the way Earl talks about him. In real life they have this long hetero-life mate thing going on.
BUT here's the thing. If Mr. Hall has a presence in any dream where I am making contact with other guys . . . Well that only means one thing.
This is where I am stopping now. And I tell you this. I am not sure why Earl or his blog content keeps showing up. I do not know him and honestly, I have no idea here. I think he is a symbol, an image I can project things onto.
He appears to be a decent guy, no ill intent towards others. I enjoy his blog too. He has been a blogger that has helped me figure out blogger things (embedding video, figuring out stats). He also provides balance in my blog reading. And balance here in a way. After all, other bloggers influence each other. Like other music artists influence each other. Thank you by the way Earl.
But, his blog doesn't trigger any deep thoughts (most of the time) or evoke any deep emotions (like some other blogs do). I mean, his blog is more relaxing than anything. Funny and witty. These are not things that should be triggering deep thoughts or influencing my dreams.
YET THERE HE IS FOR THE THIRD FRICKIN TIME!!!
so, YOU-you reader, follower, subscriber and/or lurker, YOU tell me!
Why does Earl keep showing up?
And what does the Mr. Hall's presence signify?
