Odd Dreams – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds


“I don’t always remember my dreams but when I do, they’re weird as shit.” – unknown


(I saw this the other day and totally related to it, since when I do remember my dreams, they’re always totally weird – which is probably why I remember them. For example, I had a dream the other night where I’d been invited to go off with some space aliens, and some various things happened while I was eagerly waiting for the aliens to come get me. When I woke up, I wanted to finish the dream and I even spent most of the day still partially wishing the aliens would come take me away.)

A Slutty, Cussing Barbie

Had a very odd dream this morning  just before my alarm went off. In the dream, I was putting a slinky black dress on a Barbie doll. The kicker is that the Barbie doll could talk (I think it might have been like one of those talking dolls, with the programmed phrases it can say, but I’m not sure), and its vocabulary was definitely not child-friendly.


Curious as to what it might mean, I looked up the meaning of a Barbie doll in dreams, and found a few different meanings:

1- “To see a Barbie doll in your dream represents society’s ideals. You may feel that you are unable to meet the expectations of others. Alternatively, the Barbie doll refers to the desire to escape from daily responsibilities. It may serve to bring you back to your childhood where life was much simpler and more carefree.”  –

2-“Dreaming of a barbie doll means you are seeking to live an ideal life. You tend to think having the perfect body image, and material possessions would naturally make your happier. Look within yourself to see if looking your best all the time justifies the amount of time spent verse the rewards gained. Learn to build on long terms goals instead of focusing on beauty and things, because time trumps beauty and all things lose value.” –

3-“If you see a Barbie doll in your dream it denotes the perfection of the world. The dream explains that you have a sense of no one understanding you and accepting the way you are. It might be that you have too big expectations for yourself just to prove those around you that you can do everything and are capable to reach any goal. The other explanation of this dream foretells that the Barbie doll wants to avoid the duties and charges it has…” –


So what does that say about me that my subconscious is putting a Barbie doll in a slinky black dress and making her cuss like a sailor? I’m almost afraid to think.
What about you? What do you think it might mean? And have you had any weird dreams like this?
