Normally wouldn’t bother you with such trivia, but it was a GamesBids dream.

Was at an IOC session (don’t know where, it was all in a big hotel auditorium). And all the GamesBids members were there for some reason. And we were sweet talking some nice, but dim, female IOC communications officer, who was giving us access to everything behind the scenes. Baron was fighting to get a picture of himself in the IOC president’s chair, then we all wanted ours there as well. The IOC president was still Rogge, but some evil Rogge who went everywhere on a horse (he said he’d taken up equestrian since he retired - though, like I said, he was still prez). And he was giving us a personal interview from the back of his horse. Then, in the middle of the meeting, the IOC member from Saudi Arabia made some bombshell suggestion or proposal, and everyone was outraged and tried to silence him. One of the German GamesBids members - either Olympian or Stefan - was muttering about how corrupt he was. And Krow made some comment about Los Angeles, but it wasn’t clear if it was because the session was in LA, or LA was a candidate.

Then I woke up. As one does. Which is why I still,l remember it.

Had another weird GamesBids dream last night.

I’d scored a junket with the IOC to the Olympic Games in Zurich, and was staying at the IOC hotel. At breakfast in the morning I was sitting next to Thomas Bach, who was asking me my opinion on something, when another IOC member interrupted us to show him a book on “Socialism and the Olympics”. All the IOC members wore monks robes and were hooded, and I was surreptitiously trying to get a pic of them on my phone so I could post it up in here. Then we all had to leave to a meeting at the conference centre, but I got lost on the way and was wandering to lots of hotels asking them if they knew where the IOC hotel was but they just laughed at me and told me to go to the Olympic Stadium.

Then the alarm clock woke me…

I thought the first post was fresh - so I :lol:'ed it . It was funny, then I saw that it was 4 years ago.  

The weirdest dream that I can remember is sitting on the grass on some hill in Pakistan watching Julie Andrews twirl around in a sari singing "The hills are alive . . ." to a Bollywood beat.  Quickly awoke before it got even more bizarre.

I remembered I’d posted up one of my GamesBids dreams before when I woke up from today’s, but didn’t recollect the details at all till I read about it again - and I still don’t recall it apart from the vague memory of you insisting you had the sit in the IOC president’s chair.

I’m still puzzled why today’s was so clearly at an Olympics in Zurich. Oh, one other thing. For some reason the Olympics were being held every two years.
