I’ve never read the book, Left Behind, nor saw the movie starring Kirk Cameron, but I currently would like to think it went something like this dream. The references are many, so I’ll place them in parentheses to help you keep up.
Our pilots are Goofy.
While travelling back to her home in Australia aboard Mickey Mouse Airlines, the beautiful star of the hit television show Claire Voyant suddenly finds many of the passengers on her plane have disappeared. Even the pilots! Luckily, someone with experience playing flight simulators is present and successfully lands the aircraft.
(NOTES: The Australian actress was Carissa Walford, pictured below. This past week she’s co-hosted G4TV’s Attack of the Show in Olivia Munn’s place, and she stole my heart, although not Olivia’s place in my heart. Don’t fight ladies… there’s room.)
(BONUS FACT: I’ve loved Aussie accents since the days of Olivia Newton-John in Grease, so that’s two Aussie’s and two Olivia’s.)
(EXTRA REFERENCE: Claire on LOST is Australian, and the TV show in my dream shares her first name. Weeyud. <–Australian for Weird.)
Sugar and Spice, but not in that order
Anywalfordiftheylooklikecarissa, the unnamed actress presented in my subconscious by, um, Carissa Walford, finds out that the Rapture has happened, and she’s one of those left behind (full circle).
(NOTES: The Rapture as portrayed in fiction in the Bible usually means good people are sucked up into heaven. Here’s Wikipedia’s breakdown, a snorefest. The Rapture as portrayed by Blondie is here.)
Basically, as it turns out, all the good people didn’t get sucked up to heaven. It was aliens that did the sucking up, and they sucked up all the idiots to give our planet another chance. They were big fans of Claire Voyant and decided that she should run the world. Ever the go-getter, she obliges, and the world’s mantra becomes
The geeks shall inherit the Earth!
INGREDIENTS: Three mini-burgers and fries from Applebee’s, plus numerous pourings of brew.
