Its nice to have bizarre dream and actually be able to pin point its source. It was definitely a combo of food, media overload and the pain meds. Chinese dragon from the shrimp lo mein. The cat thing from viewing Wil's flikr photos. And the cast of characters came from my wish list of TV friends.
I definitely have to be careful of the things that I program my brain with before bedtime. But at least I got to stretch my writers muscles while getting that down onto "paper".
