Yesterday morning my trainer worked out my neck/upper shoulders big time. I went climbing last night, and of course hurt something. Not horribly, but enough that I had to ice/warm.

So, I had this dream that I had to ice my neck. There was a machine that you could put money into and you'd get something out that you could use. Well, I put my money in and out drops a frozen cat - not dead, just frozen. I was in shock at first. Then I thought, oh fuck, I'm going to have to take care of it. It moved around, looked at me and one eye was gone, and it wanted attention. I think the sane part of my brain said, what the hell are you going to do with this dream, and switched to something else or I woke up.

But then about a half hour later, in a sleep or semi sleep state, my black cat, Cleo, flashed into my head. She was just sitting there looking up at me in a nice way - just saying hi. So that was nice.

And in other news, if you are wearing a form fitting knee-length jean skirt that has a slit up the middle, it's fairly impossible to get onto your bike without tearing the junction of the slit. I'm glad I only paid about $4 for it at the thrift store. Sigh. But I liked this skirt.

Poor kitty. Poor skirt, but kudos for trying to ride a bike in one at all!

I've noticed that you often have very interesting dreams. What do you think this one means?

Thanks for the skirt warning. Ummm... not sure what I'll do with it, but thanks nonetheless.

My bike advice: buy bike shorts, as I finally did this season. Yes, you end up looking like a dork, but they are SO much more comfortable than riding in normal clothes.

Puss, you should see the things I bike in.

Squirrel, let me clarify. My morning routine is to get on my bike in my bike shorts, bike shoes, and exercise top. I bike to the gym that's close to where I work adn shower and change. And I bike to my office in my work clothes. So the distance I'm biking in real clothes is short...

OK, not sure what to do with the dream analysis site:

The feminine part of yourself. We all have qualities that are masucline and feminine. The feminine aspect represents the positive, creative, emotional self. In mythology cats are associated with the 'Goddess'. This is a reference to new growth in your life. If you are into Wicca, or have read stories recently of witches, a black cat could represent your higher self. Black cats also represent bad luck. Have you had unfavorable things happening in your life?
# Also: If the cat is aggressive, then it suggests that you are having problems with the feminine aspect of yourself.
# Dreaming that a cat is biting you, symbolizes the devouring female.
# Seeing a black cat in your dream indicatesa lack of confidence in your intuitive self.



Cats have both positive and negative connotations. You need to consider all of the details in the dream in order to obtain accurate interpretation. The cat can be a symbol of sexuality, femininity, prosperity and power. A cat is also an independent animal, and in your dream you may be associating yourself or someone else with these characteristics. Usually the dream is telling you about yourself and not others. Historically black cats have been symbols of evil and bad luck. If you are a cat lover and have one as a pet, the symbolism may not apply to your dream. Old, superstition-based dream interpretations say that a cat is a bad omen and that you can expect deceit from those that you trust

I have had such a hard time finding a skirt I could comfortably bike in.

NoRegrets said...

G-even though it's summer now and loose, flow-y skirts are all the rage?

Tera said...

Somehow the visual of you getting on a bike in that kind of skirt makes me chuckle!

And I thought I had weird dreams!!!

WNG said...

I'm just jealous that you can bike to your gym and to work!!!

ok, the 'wish i was still single and living on my own' part of me was all like ~cool~! you can just go to the vending machine a buy a new kitty whenever you were feeling down. (note that in this scenario i have finally rid myself of my junkfood as a cure for depression habit.)
the animal rights activist in me was in shock and horrified that someone could torture an animal in that way.

the rest of me was thinking, it'll be a cold day in hell before i wear a skirt so don't need to worry bout that but thanks for the tip.

If a young woman dreams that she is holding a cat or kitten she will be influenced into some impropriety through the treachery of others.

NoRegrets said...

TERA, yes, I laughed at myself too.
WNG, well, I consider myself lucky also.
Heather, yes, I was kind of shocked and horrified, but I hope you won't report me to the authorities. I don't htink I'm responsible for my dreams.
Belle, well, might be a decent interpretation.

heather said...

ah hell, i we were responsible for our dreams i would've been locked up a ~long~ time ago with no hope of ever seeing daylight again.
