Silver or White or Burning

It's not really a recurring dream, but I often dream about my hair. I don't know if its because my hair is currently having an identity crisis and changes color literally every time I wash it, or because my hair is important to me, or maybe because I could be anywhere from vain to losing self-esteem to organized to sexually curious. Check that link - it's funny. Anyhow, I probably dream about my hair once or twice a week.

Last night, I dreamed that I was blow drying my hair in my parents' bathroom and the hair dryer kept slowly dying. I'd hit the button that said "Extra Surge Power" or something, and there would be a little surge, but then it kept dying out. I looked in the mirror and noticed that the sides of my hair were a white/silvery color. In my head, my hair was "Ice." Ice didn't mean actual ice, though, it was just what my hair was, and the color it was. Once it was "Ice," then my hair turned into a cool light/pale blue and I remember not being able to tell if it was closer to "silver or white or burning." That's what I thought in the dream.

HAHAHAHAHAHA i love dreams.

have you noticed that you've been dreaming about your parent's house a lot?

i know exactly what you mean with the "i thought it was 'ice'". Like, you think something that makes perfect sense in the dream, and then you wake up and it doesn't make sense after all.

i dream about my hair too. i always dream that it's really long and soft and beautiful, and i'm like "finally i have the hair i've always wanted". it's true, i've always wanted long hair and it's so fun to play with in the dream, but it'll never happen.

Ooh, Valerie, I had not noticed that...their house pretty much rules. Maybe that's why. I think you have some of the cutest hair styles every to exist, so congratulations.

i apologize for causing your sexual curiosity through dream manipulation. it was an experiment gone awry.

you inspired me to blog about a hair dryer experience.

i used to have a recurring dream about having bangs that hung in my eyes and for some reason i could never move them. that was a frustration dream. recurring dreams about my teeth falling out constantly, too. scary.

I have a billion dreams about my teeth falling out. I always thought it was because in real life my fake tooth used to fall out a lot before it was a permanent fake tooth. Then I found out that my sister has teeth falling out dreams too. In conclusion, those dreams are pretty sucko and I'm in love with all your crazy brains.

I'm wondering when the dream dictionaries will start giving up analyses of dreaming about Barack Obama. There sure have been a bunch of those in the last year!
