Have you ever had a dream about an ER Forum member?

Last night in my dream, I discovered Khan was my next door neighbor.

I never did see her, but I can remember looking at her house and garden. Somehow I knew she lived there. I guess I'm psychic in my dreams...

Well so far it looks like I'm the only one. I guess I could have titled the thread in regards to fantasy, but even I am not that bold...

I tend to create a mental picture of people on these boards based on their avatars and what I read about them. Of course, any resemblance with reality would be purely coincidental! Some brave souls, at least, save me the exercise by posting actual pictures of themselves!

So no, I have not yet had a dream about a fellow ER forum member, but it might very well happen one day!

Honestly, I haven't dreamed of Want2Retire but I imagine her totally unlike her avatar, more like Benson in "Law and Order, SVU." Probably because W2R once mentioned Benson (or I dreamed she did?) and because of her state where the real actress was born.

I have met a few board members and was taken by surprise just how close my mental image was from the real thing. I really enjoyed each of those several visits.

I admit to allowing avatars to influence my mental image of you guys. I figure you picked your avatars for a reason; and if that is the way you want me to see you, then it is fine by me. I have my favorites. (I was really happy to see bbbamI's sexy legs reappear, and I was devastated to discover that haha is not black.)

As for me, I really am a small brown dog with floppy ears and skeptical eyes.

Hint: my avatar is not to be taken literally, but rather symbolically. The flower pictured in my avatar happens to be a great representation of who I am and where I came from. Now, you just have to figure it out!

Lots of dreams but none about anyone on this board or even anyone I know online.

No. But several keep me awake at night. Does that count?

I don't look like Eva Habermann (my avatar), or like Benson (the beautiful Mariska Hargitay) either! I wish I did - -they are both gorgeous (so thanks!). I don't know who I look like, if anybody.

I imagine you to be small and slender, with short, straight dark hair, an engaging smile and dancing brown eyes.
