Figure skating dream

I'll leave you to draw your own psychoanalytical conclusions as to what my dreaming about figure skating might signify. ;) But this dream was really entertaining so I wanted to share it with you as best I can.

I dreamed that I was going to compete in ice dancing, and Tanith Belbin was my coach, so apparently she was in charge of pairing me with someone, and for some inexplicable reason she paired me with Elvis Stojko, which makes no sense because in reality he's not an ice dancer and probably doesn't have much respect for ice dancing since they don't do jumps and tricks. So neither Stojko nor I were thrilled with the pairing, to put it lightly.

Something else that was really bizarre is that originally Stojko appeared in the dream as himself, but then later he was being played by Gerard Butler. What was really funny about this is that in the dream I noticed that the part of Elvis Stojko was suddenly being played by Gerard Butler, but it didn't really make any difference to the way I was reacting to him. We were verbally sparring the whole time, and in the dream it seemed like we were really witty and clever, but I can't really remember much of it, unfortunately. But usually what seems witty and clever in dreams turns out to be kind of stupid when you wake up. There was one exchange that I kind of remember, so you can be the judge of how clever it was: he said something about rewarding me for something by giving me chicken nuggets, and I said, "One more comment like that and I'll kick you in the nuggets." I don't know, but in the dream I thought it was hilarious.

I don't remember much else about the dream except that it devolved into one of those dreams where you have so many things you have to do and no time to do any of it. Strangely enough, we never did get around to any actual skating, although we were supposed to be on our way to a competition.

I know I've been talking a lot about figure skating lately, and I'm not going to apologize for it anymore because this is my journal and if anyone doesn't like it, they don't have to read it (though I have been trying to put the longer passages behind cuts out of a courtesy to people's friends' lists). But just in case anyone is wondering, I do expect the figure skating posts to taper off shortly now that it's the end of the season. They may pick up again next season, however; especially since I intend to be working at home by then because I'll be able to arrange my work schedule around the competition broadcasts.
