Going Back to School

This was a weird one, I'll only list the high points and hope I can fill it in with narrative later for time.

- school burned down, parents send me (present day) back to school in the UK
- confused, ask specifically 'so when we get back home [from school] I'll pack my bags and go to school and not come back here in the evening?'
- get (wedding?) pictures taken by guy who I think is Jamie Oliver before leaving, sit upstairs in house bitching and complaining about the process / need for pics (not him) before going downstairs and having shoot happen
- he takes pics using odd floral patterened mattress as backdrop
- don't remember actual shoot, but it ends late at night and he is tired and I offer him coffee before leaving, which he declines but says that the trip to home (south of England) is long and he sometimes mis-calculates because of the "slews"? at the end
- next day (?) go to new school, big ivy covered affair, lots of girls
- no, not next day, cause I have to pack up my computer and gear (stuff from work though, remember the black 19" lcd monitor)
- call cat5 after doing so early in the morning (7am IIRC) and wake him up, but he gets to the phone before his parents wake up and tell me not to call so early (not in a mean way though). I arrange to meet up with him later on in the morning, but don't think I ever do.
- lots of people from my high school, loralee c, tracy s, michelle c I am remembering. seems like the people in the dream are people that I liked or liked me, not the assholes
- comment to michelle c that it's just like highschool all over again, isn't that wierd
- meet up with wedding photog jamie oliver again, and he takes my picture out in the fields or something. I'm holding a cup that spills fire down it's side, I say isn't that cool and drop it down a cliff. He's there taking pictures of it but doesn't fire shutter until (I thought) way way too late, and he takes pictures by holding two table lamps (for light?) and following it down the cliff (which I don't see because I'm not at the right spot) taking pictures. Camera must be on a remote trigger because I don't see anything but the table lamps in his hands, but hear the shutter clicking. Also he seems to follow the target with his hands but no camera present
