Strange dreams

I'm still keeping the dream journal, which has been an interesting experiment in 1) trying to improve my memory, and 2) seeing deeper and deeper into my increasingly weird subconscious.

The other night I dreamt I was in a porn shop, but I wasn't browsing porn, I was browsing books on one of those circular spinny book holders. I started reading a graphic novel about the United States' involvement in Iraq. It looked very Neil Gaiman-esque and was all about the dirty secrets the U.S. is trying to cover up in Iraq. Dreams are interesting...I could see vivid detail of the artwork/drawings and could read all of the words. Where does that stuff come from?? (I don't even watch the news!) I read the book, put it back, and then bought some candy and left the store and walked down the street while eating my candy.

Last night I dreamed I was watching a YouTube video someone had posted to their blog. The blog name was "One Hair, One Body" (what?!) and there were these two girls who were probably high school age, identical twins for the most part, except one was born with the hair, and one was born with the body. The girl with the hair was a normal-sized girl and she had a full head of straight shoulder-length black hair, but she had no face. It was just a smooth skin surface. And her sister sitting next to her had no hair, completely bald, and had the face of a monkey. The girl with the monkey face was doing all of the talking in the video (obviously)...but I forget what the video was about. She was giving instructions on how to do something, but I forget what.

If dreams are really our subconscious trying to work out problems, I wonder if I should be concerned.
