Livejournal dream

I think some dreams I have are really not like other people's dreams. I just woke up from a dream that consisted of me reading a mass of comments on a livejournal post I had previously written. The people commenting were all dream characters, not actual people I know on LJ. In the dream, though, I knew some of them, while others had just found the post somehow through friends.

It was mostly writers talking about about books and writing and the publishing industry (the original post was about a book), but some things reminded people of other things and some comments went off on tangents.

There was one tangential comment thread of a musician friend of mine (named Barry) reminiscing about all the bands he'd been in, and I read it and was like, "oh yeah, I'd forgotten that first band, but I heard them play at Convergence way back when HarmCon was in an atrium". None of these bands nor this musician actually exist, to my knowledge, and I certainly hadn't heard of them in real life, but dream memory is funny.

And once again, to people who say "you can't read in dreams", I say, "well, maybe YOU can't read in dreams . . ."

I never knew that people couldn't (normally?) read in dreams. Is that a thing?

I used to fall asleep reading a book and I would dream that I was reading the rest of it. It would be mildly disappointing that it didn't end how I had dreamed, sometimes.

*chuckle* see.... I both do and don't read in dreams....

Because my dreams don't usually bother with my senses. I dream in semantics. I 'read' in my dreams because I know that I'm reading.... I'm just not picturing a block of text.
