Out of curiousity - those of you with vivid dreams - are you deep sleepers or light sleepers? I get in bed and generally go into a coma. My wife, however, is a very light sleeper and she's always telling me about her dreams.
Don't know if it's true, but I had heard that it is common for women to remember their dreams and for men to forget them not long after waking.
I am a very light sleeper and I hardly ever remember my dreams. They only ones I remember are the scary ones which cause me to awake in fear as I try to come to my senses and figure out that what just happened was not real.
Twice in the last few months I have had dreams about the world ending (too much Nat'l Geographic channel, I guess). Both times it took me a few minutes to realize it was just a dream when I awoke. Really shook me up as I thought about losing my loved ones. Because it took me so long to realize it was just a dream it made me remember it. Any other dream has left my memory banks by the time my feet hit the floor to shut off the alarm clock.
