Strange Dreams Indeed

Let me preface this post by saying that I'm normally a reasonably rational thinker. I do admit to enjoying reading astrology, horoscopes, and even having the occasional tarot card reading just for fun. I don't take that kind of thing too seriously.

Last night I had a series of bizarre dreams. I was woken up three times from a sound sleep, each time with a similar dream. So, if anyone out there knows anything about dream interpretation, feel free to throw out some ideas on the following. Heck, even if you don't know anything about dream interpretation, feel free to comment on my general level of insanity.

All three dreams involved something scary jumping onto my neck and/or face. The first was a large spider or possibly a tarantula. It was large (bigger than my hand), black and brown, and furry. It jumped out of some kind of clear (plastic?) cage and landed at the base of my neck on the lefthand side. I woke up when it landed on me. This may be some kind of retribution from the shoe spiders.

The second time it was some kind of frog, in the same situation as the tarantula. The frog was, again, larger than my hand, green and black, and slimy. It also jumped out of a cage and landed on the base of my neck. I have no idea why I would be afraid of a frog. Again, I woke up when it landed on me.

I don't remember the third time. I know it was a very similar dream. Same room, same people in the background (no one I know in real life), and same scenario. Except I can't remember what came out of the cage this time. I know I woke up when it landed on me.

Very bizarre. So, am I crazy? Or do I just need to stop watching wild discovery before bedtime?

I'm thinking both.
