Real bummer that that went onto another page.

Edit - And I blame Matt Morrison for using up the last post of the page.

Right, last night. I was in a house I didn't recognise, basically fleeing from a group of people as part of a game show. The concept was that one person (me) was on the run, a small group of people were tasked with rescuing me, a larger group were tasked with capturing me. A guy called Mike (not Mike Brown, might've been Mike from Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul) comes through the front door, explains he's part of the extraction group and we have therefore won (I only win if the rescue group gets to me first). He then goes to make a cup of tea when the capture group arrives, led by Matt Morrison and Heather Badcock. I take great delight in explaining to them that they've lost when Mike reappears, causing the entire capture group to immediately blame Aidan Linge for their failure, while some of them give Matty Artell (who was coordinating the rescue) credit for our win. I then wake up and write down notes of the dream, which yet again turns out to be another sodding dream, so this is written down entirely from memory.

Also, my idea would make an awesome game show. Anyone got any contact details for Granada or anyone like that? :-)

Paul Erdunast had a cameo in a dream about jumping to collect green sweets in a library. He was, at best, three foot tall.

Your nighttimes have a sense of reality that the rest of us can only dream of.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...
