    HAHAHAHA! Oh, it's rich.


    Perfect theme to go hand in hand for what's been spinning around in my head the last couple days. Now whether or not I can pull it off now is another matter entirely, so it'll be a little while perhaps before I can get it to be squeaking like a Mouse, but I think those of us like her and I can play around just a little bit....

    So many to choose from.

    I get quite a few, but a long time ago I learnt to lie back and enjoy the fear.

    Nowadays, I actually prefer a good nightmare to a normal dream and look forward them.

    Which I have just done actually - coincidence? (dar dur dar der dar dur dar der - as in the twilight zone)

    I think not.

    There's an old Monkees song about a nightmare that I would post if I could, does anyone else remember it?


    Karn meanwhile seems to be channeling Jefferson Airplane.

    Hey, I already have my entry posted. It's not so much Jefferson Airplane as it is American McGee.

    American McGee? Some other group who recorded "Go Ask Alice?"

    No. He created a game called "Alice" in which ten years after being sent to an insane asylum-suffering from survivor's guilt after her family perished in a house fire-she has to go through a corrupted, twisted Wonderland in order to regain her sanity.


    The hare in which I had was not actually included in the way I had shown, and her Wonderland was not merely a nightmarish dream.

    Hm, okay I know nothing of this and it does not sound like my kettle of fish. Sorry.

    It wouldn't be, Parson, and I doubt many here would know what the hell I was talking about, but I've had an Alice idea for this month knocking about my mind for a couple days now.

    Hmmm my first thought was of an Alice as well, just not the same as Karn's...

    Welcome to My Nightmare,
    I think you're going to like it,
    I think you're going to feel like you belong...

    Congratulations TDZ! :D

    Flying visit for me. Just time to say...

    I guess I should've stayed in bed
    My pillow wrapped around my head
    Instead of waking up to find
    A nightmare of a different kind
    She went away
    This just doesn't seem to be my day

    Mouse?! How in the world? That song is about twice as old as you are!! I've sung that lyric many a time when the day was going badly. Often during a golf game that just kept heading south, and then further south.

    I love the Monkees! I used to watch the re-runs of the TV show when I was a teen... had a thing for Micky Dolenz (note I'm that much of a fan that I even know there's no 'e' in Micky). I've seen what he looks like now, it's not good.

    About the only reason I didn't know of it is because I'm not a fan of the Monkees. I'm younger than Mouse but I know my share of classic rock and such not.


    I probably could have gone with something along the lines of a certain Jethro Tull tune, but I wanted Alice. :D If anyone can guess which Jethro Tull tune I'm speaking of, well, I'm all ears.

    That wasn't the one I was thinking of, HB, but it does bring up another good one. Beastie is more about psychology than anything though.

    Is "all ears" a reference to the hare in your story and thus A Passion Play?
