I totally jinxed myself


I have come to the conclusion that I need to either switch from reading Sci-Fi fantasy-vampire-breed  books to a more entertaining chick flick genre, stop watching the first couple minutes of Ancient Aliens an hour before bedtime or both….because my night was riddled with crazy nightmarish dreams which included the scary ass clown from Stephen Kings IT; how that demonic clown webbed its way into my dream is beyond me because I haven’t watched that movie since I was a teenager!!

I blame myself….I sat there watching the intro to Ancient Aliens on the History channel, briefly listening to what the show was going to be about. Something to do with the Fiji Mountains, evil spirits and some other demonic beings who were thought to be aliens at one time or another, who knows but seeing glimpses of these creatures on my television screen for a few seconds made my decision quite easy. “I’m not watching this, it will give me nightmares”………..I totally jinxed myself!!

clownMy dream started with me being told that I was not to wander the town because someone was out to avenge someone’s death by killing me. From what I gathered I was the daughter of some big shot who did someone wrong therefore making my father pay by offing me (totally in the book I was reading but my dream didn’t involve vampires). I did as I was told; I stayed close to home … but one afternoon I saw a neighbor who I hadn’t seen in years so I went down to say hello, a minute later I see the barrel of a gun sticking out from the crack of the door aiming right at my chest. I heard three shots………then things went dark.  You would think that would have killed me….nope not in Jolenes Dream World, I woke up in a safe house somewhere deep in the country. Long story short…..no one bothered to check if “IT” resided there because after a few days of venturing out on my own to check out this compound that looked like a little city than housing for those that needed to be kept safe I started to see glimpses of this spooky clown…always baring his ugly sharp teeth.  The bizarre part of this dream was that in my DREAM I woke up and hours later I was telling a co-worker about my nightmare (everything I had just written), she then asked “do your dreams have an orange tint to them?”, I looked at her as though she had been smoking something potent “hmmm no, why?” I replied. “If you notice your dreams turning orange you are giving life to them”she said. Interesting.

That’s when I woke up for real, my heart racing …I glanced up at the clock “12:42” , I did my best to think happy thoughts as I cuddled close to the furkids before going back to sleep…those happy thoughts didn’t help. I was whisked right back into the land of IT. While I was wandering the woods I heard the laughter of a child (so I thought), but this laugh was more sinister…… I turned my head to see a little boy holding a doll, HIS CHUCKY DOLL….CHUCKY was laughing ( seriously I was waiting for FREDDY to pop up any moment) knowing this boy lost his way I grabbed his hand and walked him back to the safety of his home. 


This night long nightmare ended with me running into an old roommate of mine at a memorial service for those that died by the hands of the spooky ass clown, we decided to share a room and head back into town the next morning together. We were supposed to meet everyone who attended the service for dinner but fell asleep only to wake up with the eerily feeling that her and I were the only two alive and behind our door was our fate.

That’s when I woke up and decided that I had enough sleep, “I totally jinxed myself” I whispered. My subconscious had fun with me last night, digging deep and pulling out characters that caused me to keep the lights on when I was a young kid. Thank goodness E.T or the alien from Signs didn’t show up in my dream, the lights would be on indefinitely!!

  1. Time to stop watching horror movies! Wow. You could write a horror story of your own with this that would give other people nightmares.

    Note to Self and You: Avoid spooky ass clowns. Seriously.

    • that’s the thing…I don’t watch horror movies anymore because I’m a big chicken. It’s those documentaries on the History channel or Discovery Channel that spark those memories!!


  2. After watching the Japanese version of ‘The Ring’ I vowed never to watch a horror movie ever again… Even reading your post and seeing the pictures scared me! I can’t watch documentaries either now too – it’s the music that always gets me!

    • I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add those pictures…because that meant I had to see that CLOWN again, but I quickly added it trying not to really LOOK at it.

      The dog picture makes up for it though…. haha

  3. The last scarey movie I watched was The Cabin in The Woods and since I wasn’t ever a huge fan of scarey I decided that I was done with scarey. Although I want to see the new Carrie… I was freaking out the other night after just a little girl in a closet while watching Being Human. (I’m glad people can’t share nightmares.)

    • anything alien or clown related scares me…..the movie E.T, can’t stand it!! I know it’s suppose to be a kids movie….kids movie my ass, that ugly shriveled up thing gave me nightmares for months when I was little.

  4. I don’t tend to have nightmares but a scary (or even semi-scary) movie or show will keep me up half the night huddled under my blankets. I’m so glad that I’m not the only scaredy-cat here 😉

  5. Coming at you from the clown-free zone on MAMA KATS…

    Okay– the 2 most scary things I can ever dream of were in your dream together. the ‘IT’ clown and the Chucky doll…so glad I read your post in the daytime while BratChild was telling me something about giving her 2-weeks notice at subway so she can work at the daycare at the gym instead…she’s 16 and can work wherever she wants as long as her grades are good and she can keep up with her high school lacrosse practices and games…colleges are looking at her for scholarships and if they can’t see her play that won’t pan out and no college.
    Yes, I multi-tasked as I read your post…it helped me NOT to conjure up my own foreboding clown and chucky scary images.
    I actually did enjoy your post and wanted to let you know…it is a lot less awful than any of my scary dreams…be glad, be very, very glad!

    Stop by and let me know what you think about my blog sometime…and yes it is a clown-free zone too!

  6. Oh no! Clowns! I actually used to like clowns when I was little but now I think they are creepy. Mental note: Don’t let the last thing you see on television be scary and don’t eat anything close to bedtime.

  7. Clowns have always scared me. I would have “freaked out” in your dream. Creepy! I like your idea… try some lighthearted reading before you go to bed. It might make a difference.

  8. I am in the same boat! After the kids go to bed, it’s my time to relax. I’ve been watching dark, gritty independent films on Netflix right before bed, and I end up tossing and turning or having nightmares. I should have learned by now… *sigh*
