I Can’t Even Blog Right Now.

Professor Snape

You guys. Something terrible happened the other night. Also, it was awful. A terrible awful thing happened the other night. I’m just going to go ahead and say it – I had a dream that I made-out with Professor Snape on a train. Not Alan Rickman the actor who plays Professor Snape- the actual Professor Snape. And we totally made-out and we were totally on a train. And I can’t even blog right now because I’m so upset.

What could this mean? Why did this happen to me? Where was that train going? Was I on the Hogwarts Express? Why Snape? If I was to make out with any of the professors, it would have been Lupin obviously, because werewolves are kind of hot. Unfortunately, my dream was about Snape and now I’m just left very confused and a little ashamed. I’m sorry guys. I just need some time to think.

While I sort through my feelings, you guys may discuss whether syrup is pronounced sur-rup or see-rup. The answer may surprise you.

  1. Wow. I have no words. Of all the people to have landed a make-out session from Harry Potter to have had it be Snape is crazy!

    *sends posters of all hot Harry potter boys*

    Maybe tomorrow will be a better dream day.

  2. I’ve had the craziest dreams lately, or not really crazy, they have been so real and plain that it’s been really difficult to distinguish between them and real life. Have resulted in quite a few weird conversations…
    And, based on Norwegian pronunciation, which really should not affect anything, the correct pronunciation would be see’rup 🙂

  3. Sear-up!

    The thing about Snape is he has that bad boy that’s actually a totally brave and good boy thing going on. He’s a double agent and even the most powerful dark wizard of all time was fooled to the end by Prof Snape. To top that off, as played by Rickman, he’s a dark and quietly lethal kind of guy. Strong and silent type.

    Also, he’s a tortured in love kind of guy. He loved Lily from his youth until his dying breath. That’s devotion, my friend. That’s true love. The only reason he was so mean to Harry is jealousy. Lilly’s son (“you’ve got your mother’s eyes”) with another man, a rival who was pretty mean to Snape, actually.

    There are worse guys you could be making out with on a train.

    Now, having said that, I will admit that I wouldn’t be caught dead snogging Snape.

      1. Hah! I know. I tried to stop myself, but I just couldn’t help it.

        All those reasons were true, though. I’m not exactly of the Snape is sexy camp, but the combo of the written character (more backstory) and Rickman’s version is pretty compelling.

        However, Jim Dale’s audio version is repellant. He gave us a sniveling, oily, greasy, snakey Snape. I felt sorry for him, but nothing else. I even begrudged him my sympathy.

        Interesting, isn’t it? I mean, it’s the same character. Presentation is everything, they say.

  4. As for the dream, i would ask you: how long have you been single? Maybe its been too long (like me…) and your willing to fall for the ifrst guy even if you don’t really like him. Uhh i know its horrible, sorry bout that.

    As for syrup, in french (i’m french-canadian) we prononce it sirop (see-ro) so i would say see-rup.

    P.S.: Don’t worry about the dream, sometimes it doesn’t mean a thing.

  5. Who is Professor Snape?… One of them Star Trek fellas?

    Its pronounced sorg-um.

    And it has to be made by boiling down the squeezin’s from cane sorgham. Preferrably the juice is squeezed out in a cast iron sorgham mill powered by a mule walking around and around in a circle.

    I’ve heard that some places people do something similar with tree sap, or even make a fake product out of sugar and other odds and ends…. but I just chalk that up to wild internet rumors.

  6. I think it’s pronounced “Hun-nee.”

    Freud discussed the commonly recurrent “making out with Snape” dreams (he was really ahead of his time). The fact that you were on a train suggests, according to Freud, that you like Harry Potter and also, possibly, trains. It’s very complicated. That Freud, right?

  7. Sear-rup. I know – odd. I would have thought sur-rup, but that isn’t how I say it apparently.

    Good luck figuring out the dream. I googled a dream dictionary and thought i’d look up dreaming about a villian (i know he sorta wasn’t, but he was portrayed as one mostly)

    To see a villain in your dream, symbolizes the negative aspects of your own self that you are ashamed about or not proud of.


    To see a professor in your dream, symbolizes higher learning and wisdom. You will have prominence in some field.



    To see a train in your dream represents conformity. You are just going along with what everyone else is doing. Alternatively, a train means that you are very methodical. You need to lay things out specifically and do things in an orderly and sequential manner. In particular, if you see a freight train, then it refers to the burdens and problems that you are hauling around. It is also symbolic of manual labor.


    Harry Potter

    To see Harry Potter in your dream, indicates that you have the potential to accomplish amazing things in the face of insurmountable hardships. Harry Potter reflects a more modern, atypical version of a movie hero with glasses and a quiet yet immensely strong personality.

    To dream that you are Harry Potter, represents your desires to escape from reality. You are living in your own fantasy world.

    ~ So GotC, what I figure is you were playing around with the feeling of being ashamed (villian) of just being awesome (professor) and you had to think things through about if you were feeling ashamed or not (train) but realized ‘yo-I’m a gem, and totally would like my sax player now” 😀

    You’re welcome.

    1. The fact that you put that much research into it warms my heart. I’m so relieved to finally be able to resolve my conflict with being awesome. The sun is shining just a little bit brighter today, no?

  8. see-rup. no, wait. sur-rup. no, wait. see-rup. definitely see-rup. i think.

    Beyond the horror of the thing, when you woke up, how did you feel about it IN the dream? That could tell you something. Maybe your subconscious is trying to tell you … something. Is there someone or something in your life that isn’t good for you? Someone you like and you know you shouldn’t?

    Maybe Snape’s subconscious is just playing games with yours. Because fictional characters can totally come to life and do stuff like that. If you didn’t know that, you need to be reading Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series. And then the Nursery Crimes series, which I read first and really liked, in my own warped and demented way. 🙂

    1. I’m with you see-rup. I think I’ll just make an executive decision and say see-rup is the proper way of saying syrup. So be it!

      Obviously, I need to be reading those books because I haven’t and they sound AMAZING.

    2. Anything that leads to people reading the Thursday Next series is a positive thing. If that’s what it takes, then I say “Making out with Professor Snape on a Train” dreams for everyone! (Except, maybe, Alan Rickman. That’d just be weird)

  9. No need to be ashamed. It’s not like we’re really in control of these things. Sometimes it’s just something we’ve been watching or reading a lot of invading our dreams. I’ve had ‘video game’ dreams before. Quite odd. Another thing is that we do things in our dreams that we would NEVER do in reality. So no, you don’t have a crush on Snape. You’ve just been reading a little too much Potter. Nothing to worry about.

    As for how syrup is pronounced, all in all, it depends on what region of the planet you live on, since everyone’s dialect is a little different. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was actually pronounced s-eye-rup lol… But now I’m gonna have to go google it and find out what the dictionaries say. Thanks. Now I have something else to worry about in regards to my obsession with language.

  10. 1.) I BURST out laughing as soon as I read, “I had a dream that I made-out with Professor Snape on a train.”

    2.) Then I got really freaked out. Not last night, but the night before, I had a dream I was hitting on the actor who PLAYS Snape in “A Very Harry Potter Musical.” He was trying to show me his new computer and I kept giggling and touching his arm, hoping he WOULD make out with me. That’s creepy AND pathetic.

    3.) See-rup.

      1. I had to come back and say I’m starting to feel proud of my dream, and I hope you are, too (especially with all of this amazingly in-depth feedback)! The actor to which I referred and creepily dreamed about, Joe Moses, is HILARIOUS. He interviews the other cast members of “A Very Potter Musical” as [his version of] Snape in a series called Potion Master’s Corner. This is one of my favs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdVv-fX7iFc

        P.S. – I don’t particularly like musicals, but “A Very Potter Musical” (on YouTube) is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Ever.
