I just finished a round of using the letters of the alphabet as a starting point.
I asked some friends on facebook for ideas for the next round once I'd depleted the alphabet.
"One weird dream that I had."
Since we got back from what will hence be known as the vacation that never really was, I've had weird, weird dreams when I was finally able to sleep soundly through the night again. A lot of them involved me being in a hospital bed and having no idea where I was, just looking up from my pillows to see the curtain they pull around your space for privacy. Then once I started catching up on my sleep, they got interesting.
A lot of the time they've been snippets- Tuesday morning, for example, I don't remember what I was dreaming about but I woke up with the theme from Charles in Charge in my head. (It was not a stellar start to the day.)
Today, I had a snippet that made me chuckle out loud.
I dreamed there was a new show on Nickelodeon or Disney Kids or whatever channel puts this crap out these days. It was called "Hey! Nosferatu!" and it was a zany sitcom where Nosferatu was transported from the past to our present and had to deal with the trials and tribulations of being in junior high. I think this has a great deal of potential. I'm tempted to start working on a spec script.
