Dreams Finally Remembered! Film at 11.

So last night, I had a dream that I actually remembered. This doesn't happen to me often anymore, since The Incident, so I take this very much as a good / important thing.
It was an interesting dream, too.

There I was. In a late-20's / early-30's house, out in the inner Sunset. It was a house that I apparently coowned with the housemate. We were having our first Big Party in the new house, too: a Halloween party. The Nightmare Before Christmastree was up and looked quite stunning framed in the big arched Spanish-mediterranean-San-Francisco-20's-Architectural-Nightmare style window; the party was a costume party.
Everyone I knew was there, it seems; I don't remember everyone's costume.
Seth L. was there in a toga, with laurels--a bright red clown wig, a clown nose, and clown makeup.
djfanboy was there in a straightjacket, with his face painted as the globe (or maybe it was a mask, it kept shifting).
redshrike was there, too: I can't remember her costume.
lilmissnever was around somewhere, though her costume also escapes (the costume the princess in 'Legend' winds up in in her little dance routine, perhaps?) However, an old friend of hers, F E, was in that damn pinstripe suit of his, with a tag that said "HELLO MY NAME IS Joe Black". Everyone was dressed as movie titles ("Funny Thing Happened On the Way To The Forum", "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World", "Meet Joe Black").

I SO call dibs on this. When I have the space for it, there will be a halloween party, and the theme shall be 'come as a movie title'.
If any of you in San Francisco throw this party when I have the household space to throw a party, I will be most wroth with you. If you are outside of San Francisco, please feel free to steal the idea: I would ask that you let me know how it goes, though- what you might do differently, et cetera.

    I do. However, I think the answer to making this happen is roughly my approach to encouraging it: simply not voicing the racist bullshit that you…
