Was it something I ate?

For the last few weeks I have been having an odd sleep cycle. I have never been a person who had trouble with sleep at all. In fact it is one of my three favorite things to do, but for some reason I have not only been having this strange insomnia (fall asleep and then wide awake at 2am) but I have been having non-stop dreams.
I am generally a person that dreams pretty often, but I have been dreaming every night and sometimes several dreams a night!
My mom used to tell us as children that if we ate before bed we would get nightmares. I'm not sure about that theory, personally I think it was just made up, but there has to be something going on that has changed to make me an olympic dreamer.
And the dreams are generally strange and don't make any sense to me.

Last night I dreamt I worked at McDonald's. It was more of a nightmare. And everything smelled like french fries. I couldn't figure out how to work the register. Odd.

And Saturday night before going to bed, I saw Michael Buble on Great Performances. I didn't even know who he was but he sounded pretty nice. Well, that night I had a dream I was dating him and we were going to Vegas! It was an excellent dream, very steamy too. Now, I am in love with him. That makes sense that I would dream about what I had just saw and Vegas, because who doesn't love Vegas?

Then last night, and this is the second time in a month this has happened. I dreamt about an ex. Both times, odd dreams not romantic in the least bit. Last night's dream involved me helping him pick out clothes in a store. Strange, I know.

Does anyone else dream like crazy?
I kinda hope the dreams will stop a bit because I almost feel more tired in the morning after all that is going on in my sleep. But then again, if I had that dream about Michael Buble and Vegas every night....I would be a happy woman. Now, only if it came true.
Anyone got a cure for dreams? Or know what it means if you dream about an Emu farm?

Sigh. No more coffee at night for you.
