It was dark.  I was trying to fall asleep, once upon a mid July night, then I practically jumped out of my skin when Ruggi came and rapped on my window, scaring my shadow off of my feet.  Since I wasn't going to be able to go back to sleep, I figured I'd put my jacket on and see what was going on.

I open the window, wondering how Ruggi got up and down so fast...  I come out, and chasing as fast as I could after her.  In the moment of trying to keep up, I didn't hear the sound of the band playing classic rock...

So anyway, out of breath, I come up on a shed, which the doors had fallen off, and it had gotten repurposed to a make shift stage, and here is a jamming group, all dressed in olive green, and who called themselves Igneous.  So, Katie Sanders, who happens to be a geologist or archeologist of some kind, tells me it's a type of olivine, a type of mineral that occurs naturally.  Hmm.  Pretty good rockers.  Hey, they're Igneous Rock!  Clever name...

As I watch the slamming guitars, I recognize that the drummer is DJ Myke's kid!  How about that?  These kids can knock out the music!  As I get lost into the music, and become one with the beat, the band plays a jazz/rock fusion that just swings the guitar into awesomeness.

All of a sudden, the band disappears into thin air, taking Heather with them, and the group of Blogophilia Bloggers merges back into the mist and I can still hear Micki talking.  I find myself sprawled all over my bed, sheets and blankets strewn all over the floor...  I must have dreamed the whole thing, but I swear I was there!  I shiver with cool sweat on my skin...  Maybe that crazy kid hit me with that guitar...

Dang it all, the action wasn't real.  Now I feel like this...
