Wacky Dreamin’

By Kiki Keane and Rachel Womek

Well… it seems that both of us had wacky dreams last night. For one of us it was fever induced. We’ll let you figure out which one…

Kiki: My dream involved the Seven Dwarves (Disney version with song), Neil Gaiman, Raj (from The Big Bang Theory) and the guy who plays Leonard on The Big Bang Theory, but he wasn’t Leonard, he was his character from Rosanne… It wasn’t a very lucid dream. I can’t remember most of it… Let’s just say the Seven Dwarves were trying to kill me with pickaxes and hammers while singing “Hi-ho!” Neil Gaiman was a “wise” man who was definitely NOT wise, giving advice like, “Maybe you shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes.” Raj did what Raj does… stay silent while a girl’s in the room. And Leonard-who-was-not-Leonard kept mumbling things to Darlene who was not actually there. I’m not sure if the Seven Dwarves ever succeeded in killing me… I will assume Nightmare On Elm Street is correct in the if-you-die-in-your-dreams-you-die-in-real-life thing, and say that the Seven Dwarves were not successful in their endeavors… “Hi-ho!”

Rachel: In my dream, I was solving a complex Calculus equation with Niels Bohr, the father of Quantum Mechanics. The problem was intricate and seemed to involve Einstein’s Cosmological Constant. I am not sure exactly what we were doing: either trying to plot the probable locations of electrons or possibly weigh the Universe. The former seems more consistent with the presence of Bohr, yet the latter would explain the Cosmological Constant. I told Bohr: “I don’t understand all these Greek Symbols!” I was thinking if I could only solve the equation I could get some peace… That is about all I can remember.

So… There you have it.  You can guess if you want. We don’t have money for prizes though,so you’ll just have to be satisfied with a virtual hug and “Good job!”

Oh… and just to add a little seriousness to the blog post, here are some links to a few MSNBC/NBC reports on the Israeli-Iranian conflict that seems to be heating up:

Hardball, NBC Nightly News, Today

Can you tell who Kiki’s journalist of the hour is?
