I think I need to either cut down my television veiwing, or radically change what I watch.
Last night I had the strangest dream, featuring elements of things I've seen in television entertainment, and news.
In my dream I see Will and Jack (from Will and Grace) outside a dusty, sandy store of some kind. There is a commotion nearby and a man wearing a shiny (almost metallic) light blue business suit, sunglasses, and a hat comes running towards them and the store. In the dream it's obvious that he needs new clothes, which is what the store sells. Will and Jack offer their services to help him pick out a new outfit.
Inside the store, the dream turns into a surreal episode of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" as Will and Jack help him by picking out some new pants (Ralph Lauren, but stored on a shelf in the dusty blue box), a shirt, helping him shave his moustache off, and giving him hair grooming tips.
After they are done with him, he looks great, thanks them and leaves.
Oh, did I mention that after they get him into the store and start helping him, it becomes obvious that the guy is Saddam Hussain?
I am pretty sure that this dream was the result of watching too many episodes of Queer Eye, then watching the Daily Show last night where Jon Stewart claimed that the Pentegon was distributing photoshopped pictures to soldiers in Iraq of what Hussain might look like now - without a moustache, with blonde hair, or maybe, in a cocktail dress.
After Saddam took off, Will, Jack, and I (who was suddenly in the dream) all went to the Dairy Queen in Baghdad (which looked alot like one from my childhood in El Centro), where we hung out with several people, including my friend Nadine.
Weird. Really, really weird.
