I fell asleep reading the new House Beautiful last night, and this was my dream:
I was a contestant on Design Star and we were staying in the tallest building I have ever seen. There was a pool on the roof deck, and we were up there for the first challenge, which had something to do with rugs. I got a runner so long it didn't fit across the deck and I had to roll it down a long hallway. Another contestant couldn't find her rug and it turned out I had covered it completely.
The roof deck also had a view of the mountains where people were skiing. We all surmised that we were in Vermont. Taking a bus tour to our second challenge, we passed a sign for Nederland and I realized we were in Colorado. I hatched a plan to ditch out and go see my friends Justin and Amy in Boulder.
Digging in my wallet for cab fair, I found a bunch of uncashed checks to my business. There was about $25K in design fees that I had forgotten all about. I decided that this was such a surprise bonus, it would be okay for me to get grasscloth wallpaper for my fireplace wall and upstairs hallway.
I started to write a blogpost about accidentally sabotaging a fellow contestant on design star and saw that I had 165 followers. This is funny because that is still a pretty tiny following by many standards, but I was freaking out with excitement. In the dream, I apparently was steady at 145 followers, so 165 meant 20 were new. I figured out who they were and sent each one of them an email thanking them for coming along for the ride.
I'm not sure I need to dig out my old dream dictionary to interpret this one!
Have a very happy long weekend!
