Foo Dream Interpretation Needed

Ok here is my dream from last night. Make of it what you will.

I took a new job with the city of Atlanta. My job was to remove bikes locked to city property like street lamps and such. My partner was Mariska Hargitay from Law and Order SVU.


She would drive a our truck and when we spotted a bike I would hop out, cut the lock, and throw it in back of the truck. The city wanted us to take the bikes to the dump, but I convinced them to put them in the police impound yard to allow the owners a chance to collect them.

So we're riding around town collecting the usual suspects, junk BMX bikes and such, then we pull up to this old building and what's chained to the street light out front. A gorgeous Atlantis with a Rohloff 14 speed hub. Now Mariska is yelling at me just to cut the chain and collect the bike but I know the owner would likely never get this sucker back. So I run up to building and start ringing all the units. Finally the owner of the bike answers and runs out of the apartment building. It's Chris Tucker dressed as Ruby Rod from the 5th Element.



He thanks me for sparing his bike and unlocks it to take it inside. That's when Mariska freaks out and rams the light pole with the truck crushing one of the wheels of the bike.

That's when I wake up.

What's to interpret? That is the same dream that Wordbiker has most nights except his has Whoopi Goldberg and Milliard Filmore in it. Sounds like you are a very well adjusted individual.

The only thing wrong is you didn't post a picture of Mariska (sp?)

You forgot the part about waking up with morning wood.

Wow! I thought I had some strane dreams. You know it is possible to control your dreams if you practice!

Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

I've always had very vivid and strange dreams. And yes I'm very aware of lucid dreaming techniques.

I had a similar dream except it involved a vat of Cool Whip and a Deerhunter era Christopher Walken. I woke up before the end but I'm sure it would've been disturbing/thrilling.
