Just as I think things can’t get any worse, I look down at my feet—and there it is—the almost reality of the turn-up-at-schoolnaked dream.

So who has never had that dream where you turn up at school naked? I don't think there is any one of us who hasn't.

I've even had a weird version where my whole body was clothed in pyjamas except for my you-know-what. Someone had cut a hole out of my pants in the middle of the night. In my dream. Not for real. Just thought I'd add that in case you got confused.

I could add another detail which might be a too much info, but let me just say, I hadn't yet reached puberty (well maybe that was the beginning) and the hole in my pyjamas exposed something which totally freaked me out ... I will not say any more ... I woke up panting and in a sweat. Now THAT was a wet dream ...

Anyway, short and sweet today ... who can find  me?

CLICK TO ENLARGE: My very first year at high school ...


Lovely blog tour participants today are ....

Hart Johnson ~ (Review/Interview) Quirky traits, from a dark mind ... how? you ask ...

"I write books from my bathtub and blog in my basement. For a full bio on the 3 faces of me, check out the tab. As for the shenanigans around here... lots on writing, some life... mostly I just want to encourage you to play with me. Silliness abounds."

Len Lambert ~ (Review) I answer a couple more questions too. This is one of my most special moments ...

"Hello! It's nice to have you here! In case you are wondering, my blog title was inspired by a childhood memory - I used to talk to myself in the mirror when I was a little girl. I had imaginary friends, too. I even talked to geckos and count their 'tsk.tsk.tsk' and convert them into syllables to form words. Now, not only do I talk to myself...I write all the 'talking' too!"

Roland Yeomans ~ (Interview (creative) In which I am being interviewed by a ghost. Who wrote those questions anyway? lolol

"Dreamer. Writer. Believer in the worth of each soul I meet. It is not so bad a thing to have been born with the gift of laughter and the knowledge that the world is mad."

Sheri Larsen ~ (Review) One of the most supportive bloggers I know ...

"Published freelance & short story writer; author of young adult, middle grade, & picture books. Lover of all paranormal & the not-so-average teen/tween. Hair-raising mom to 4 humanoids, lover of dance, sports, jamming to rock music in the car, the rain, anything chocolate...and a romantic wink from my favorite werewolf. My friends call me Sheri."

  1. I'm going to guess second on the right, front row.

    I adore that interview with Roland :-)

  2. Second row, fourth from right.

    And Raymond Carver's smiling somewhere.

  3. You know, I've never had the naked dream. I'm kind of disappointed about that.

  4. I'm going to say middle row, the tall girl on the right. Best guess!

  5. I guess second right front row.

    Have a good day.


  6. Front row, third in from the left. I'm off to visit Roland. He told me about the interview. Can't wait to read it.

  7. Bottom row, second from right.

    Bless you. I would NEVER print my HS pics. :-)


  8. Now I don't feel so strange. Lots of people haven't had the naked dream. I haven't either!

    Hm, I'm rubbish with faces, so I'm not even going to try...

  9. My real guess is that this is a trick question and you aren't there.

    But assuming I'm wrong, middle row, 4th from right.

  10. My guess the the tall chick in the middle row.

  11. Your in the first row, sitting in fron of the teacher, I'd know that smile anywhere. :)

  12. Yep. First row, far right. In front of the teacher. :)

    And my dream would have to involve NOT having something there and ... well ... let's not even go there.

    *shudders to even contemplate it*

  13. Oh crap! Front row, second from left?

  14. The last time I guessed about a childhood photo of a female friend I had the imprint of a palm on my left cheek for an hour! Gave up those kind of guesses!

    I love my dreams of flying or climbing up skyscrapers.

    It was great having you at the haunted jazz club, Meilori's. Mark Twain's ghost is still depressed you chose Raymond Carver over him! The ghost of Elvis sang a set after you left. You should have stayed! Roland

  15. How about... second from the left in Row #2? I'm awful at faces, though!

  16. Nope, never naked, but often late for something wearing pj's or slippers. My guess is 4th from right.

  17. I am going with second row, fourth from the right. That is what I would like to do with my second life...study dreams! :-)

  18. Second from the right, front row. You hadn't yet reached puberty.

  19. Oh my word, what a nut of a dream!! Talk about making you break out in a sweat! It must be the creative writer brain that does it.
