10:56 am - Psychic Livejournal Dating Dream
In my dream I'm standing at some kind of counter (at first it is an ATM but later it is a restraunt) with 2 friends, one of whom I'm slightly interested in but don't know her feelings about me. The other friend walks off to get something and this girl just casually touches the top of my hand. I get those sparks of the sudden realization that I'm being flirted with. I turn my hand over and hold hers. Seconds pass and I finally screw up the courage to actually look up and make eye contact. We both giggle nervously and then smile comfortably. Then she gets up and leads me over to the other side of the counter and leans in for a kiss. I follow and lean in to the kiss. After a very nice tentative kiss I say something. I don't remember what it was it was just a few words about the moment and she leaned back in and we started kissing intensely. Our friend wanders back at this point and kind of smiles embarrassed and when we ignore her and keep kissing more and more passionately the other friend shrugs and wanders off, amused.
When we finally break the kiss after getting to the point where we were nearly disrobing each other and suddenly realizing we're in open public, I say something else nice about the moment and she says something about how it was like I could read her mind because a couple times I'd said exactly what she was thinking.
Suddenly my vision of the dream is superimposed transparent page of text pver the actual reality. I tell her, "of course I can read your mind NOW, because right now is after the fact and I'm reading your LiveJournal entry about these events and you wrote what you were thinking". Suddenly the comfortable bliss of the moment grinds to a complete halt as everyone in the area turns and looks at me like I'm completely insane and a little bit scary. I've violated the linearity of time. I try to explain that it isn't a violation of the linearity of time because this scene is only happening in my mind's eye later that day while I am reading the LiveJournal. And then I start to think I've gone completely insane because why would my remembrance of the day have that sort of psychic insight that could only be gleaned from reading the LiveJournal account and this sort of meta-dialog justifying the situation. Those things didn't happen the "first" time. But if they didn't happen, then why did she write that I understood her thoughts so well? Temporal loop. Oops. Core Dump. Wake up.
