Game, mission, house, kohls

I always wake up in the middle of the best dreams!

The other night I dreamed that my sister was finally moving out of my house. I was extremely happy and of course they still hadn’t fixed the siding like I asked them to so I had to do it but that’s ok becausr they were gone. Apparently I was going to do it myself but then my neighbor from here was helping me for some reason. He ripped all the nails out and we took off the broken siding then we replaced the piece and I left him to nail it back in but he did a horrible job and I had to try and fix it. Add in a trip to a home improvement store where I couldn’t find the siding I was looking for.

Then I was going to Kohls with my mom but when we got there the parking lot was empty and the lights were off inside the store. I assumed there was a power outage but we were upset so I got out of the car and walked along the sidewalk. Instead of just being stores, it became a stripmall and I passed the other stores looking to see what the problem was. Some had lights but some did not. There were some latino peopld standing around and I saw that as I walked the back portion of Kohls was lit. Then I woke up. There was something significant that occurred but I forget now.

Last night’s dream was pretty cool. Video game like. There was a carnival/fall festival portion where I was enjoying some games. Then it cut to a…TV show? Maybe I was playing a game? Anyways it was a race through a crazy obstacle course where it cycled between first person and tv-viewing. The characters were Gumball and Darwin from the cartoon tv show and the obstacles were water, ladders, walls, pipes, etc where you would have to navigate on a timed course. It was understood that you were 2 of several contestants and they/you were bottom dead last. Finally making it through the last tunnel, it ended up landing me on a cushion in a large room where the rest of the class (now it was apparently a class for training purposes). Given that I had just barely passed the course I begged the instructor to let me have another chance at it. They said OK, but now the whole group was placed on a large moving platform and sent to the other side of the compound outside where I got to see it all from up high. That course had been the 2nd level and now I was to complete the 3rd and final level with a burly male partner, and for some reason I had aced the previous test which allowed me special permission to represent our whole class with my partner on the course. I knew the stakes and significance of acing this course too so I carefully studied my mission and as much of the course as was visible.

We were both suited up with spec ops gear and the two of us transported to the entrance. As we made our way there it was pitch black so I flipped on my night vision goggles. My partner whispered to me asking what I had seen and I told him dead soldier bodies. Lots of them. We were worried…this was just practice right? They’re actors? We creep up to the door in the darkness, readying ourselves. Our earpieces told us to go and i we went, fast and efficient. I don’t even know what the mission was. The area was littered with fallen bodies of enemies and friendlies. Obviously a battle had been fought. We split up looking for key items like usb drives with data, and anything with intel or looking like a key to unlock the upper areas and to help us takr down the boss. At one point we were attacked by an enemy and since we were mostly unarmed, I pulled out my combat knife to defend myself. Those portions were fuzzy but we managed to fight them back, the sense of danger and urgency strong. I pilfered a bigger knife from my enemies and looked around for any other weapon. We found some data drives hidden that the enemy did not lay their hands on yet and both relieved that we still had each other to rely on. We were about to head forward to the next area when–

–I woke up. Baaaaaah!!!!!

Car, dog, video game

I’m with my family and I’m driving my old car (with my mom’s license plate on it). I pull into a parking lot in a shopping center and my mom and I get out to go grocery shopping. The store allows dogs and I have my new dog, a Boston Terrier, with me (bulldog type) on a blue harness. We look at some dog treats and I can’t make up my mind so we go to the fitting rooms to test a treat out. I walk into the area and there are a few workers sitting at tables having a meeting. I see in a vacant room that someone else had tried a dog treat bag, and just left it on the floor. Suddenly I get cold feet about trying treats out because it felt wrong, so I pick up the Boston Terrier, cradling him? her? in my arms and go out to find my mom. I show her the way I’m holding the dog and say that they like it, and carry all 25lbs of it (getting heavier and heavier) around. We end up in either a different store or a different part of the store, still looking at dog treats. This place has shelves and products that go almost up to the ceiling. I spend time looking at the ingredients and my mom sees a little binder they’re selling about how to care for dogs (the cover looks like a license plate with silly sayings on it). She keeps asking me if I need one of the books and I repeat myself several times saying no, I don’t, I know how to take care of my dogs, thank you very much. But they talk about worms! No, I’m fine, thanks. Then we leave–the Boston Terrier is walking on its own now–and it’s gotten rather dark. Not night yet, but very close to it. I’m looking for my car, but have forgotten where I parked it, but spot it in the distance. My mom complains that we went the long way and I’m like, yeah I forgot where we parked, but it didn’t help that my brother had moved the car, while waiting for us. We get in, and I speed away like I always do when I drive, commenting about the automatic transmission as opposed to a CVT. As I come up to the light, a double turn lane, I overshoot the light sensor and end on asphalt that’s been milled, so I put it in reverse and back up. Just my luck that someone else is driving up behind me, so I stop. A big SUV and other cars start cutting in front of me, so I follow the car in front of me and get into the other turn lane. Light turns green and I shoot off after the other cars when suddenly it’s pitch black and I’m driving down this amazingly windy, downhill, part paved, part dirt road at about 80 miles an hour, dodging pedestrians and other cars as I follow traffic. Then the camera changes altogether to bumper cam and I can’t see a darn thing, except that there’s a police chase going on and I’m still trying to figure out my viewing camera and WTF is going on. Then it changes again to dual screen where the upper screen is the bumper cam craziness with blue lights and all, while the bottom cam is a top down of me in bit graphics having ditched the car and running into a series of tunnels underground. There are bosses I need to defeat while trying my hardest to get away. Soon it’s just the bottom screen that’s the focus and I’m trying to get items in chests while escaping with limited time on the clock. Obviously the items are just a lure. I hit turrets, dodge bosses and finally get out the other side of the cave towards the light.

Then there’s this convoluted, complicated series of platformer type video game adventures, and I end up driving around on an island. Old school, not many modern amenities. My sister is there and has been bitten by a very toxic bug. Something about the trunk of an old sedan, and not spreading the virus/bacteria to the mainland. Some swimming between islands, boats and sand. I can’t for the life of me remember it. Or maybe that was before the other adventure?

I didn’t even touch video games this weekend!

Several Dreams

Friday: Work, appliances, lottery, library

This night’s dreams were extremely exciting, but it’s been a few days since I couldn’t remember them

I was at work in the break room trying to eat, and B came in with me and was heating up food for me even though I didn’t need her to. She put a bowl in the microwave and lay a spoon down beside it in there. I exclaimed but too slowly and there it went. So of course, it busts, and my bosses go buy a new stainless steel one. They also place a used toaster oven in there and I remember being very excited about that because, I thought to myself, I can now make fried chicken at work. What can possibly be better than that?

Next dream sees me traversing a series of underground tunnels and other places, almost as obstacle courses. There were other teams competing too,  and the first to the “end” wins. The path I take is purple with water and stepping stones, all lit by regularly placed torches. There are many doors and you don’t know which ones will take you where, so you have to remember. After trying several doors, some of which take you to different doors and others as dead ends, I quickly grab a door and open it as my rivals converge. It’s a library. Other contestants are milling around trying to figure out the puzzle. We’re supposed to be quiet, but no one is doing a good job of that. I go to one of the irregularly placed computer terminals, and find that everyone’s getting stumped because the terminals have crashed. I ask if we need to get my brother to come do this, but how would be get here? I go to another one and start trying to figure it out myself, the race all but forgotten. Boring end to the dream.

Next dream sees me sitting in on a classroom in a large, gray, older high rise in a bustling city. Maybe like Japan? Or Canada? Lots of Asian people in the city, though the classroom is more diverse than that. Everyone is wearing uniforms, dark in color ringed in red, skirts and pants and however they wish to accessorize. I’m not supposed to be a student in the class itself, but I am there and everyone is getting their tests back. No recollection if I got a test back or not, but I leave as class is dismissed. I’m with one other student and I’m like, I have to get out of here, I’m not supposed to be here. Then, I see at the end of a dark hallway a series of lottery scratcher machines set up. I have 2 ten dollar bills with me, so I say, why not, and buy a scratcher. It doesn’t win. I’m about to leave, when I decide to turn back around and put my last ten dollar bill in. I choose a $10 scratcher and suddenly notice that the money count now says $109 left. I’m like, huh?? It counted my ten wrong! Sooo, I start getting one of every type of scratcher and instead of the number going down, it keeps going up. Weirdness ensues where each scratcher game suddenly starts taking on stories of their own as I try to make decisions as to which to get. The amount finally starts going down and I’m getting nervous because I’m not really supposed to be in the building and taking advantage of a messed up machine. Finally I make my final decision and now I have an entire stack of lottery scratchers in my hand.

…I’ll never know if I won anything.

 Saturday: Crashing car, very realistic, adventure

A couple other dreams before, but extremely realistically (so most likely I was taking a nap early Sunday morning…I hate naps) I’m driving in my car to go to work. I’m very sleepy and my brain isn’t working properly so as I come up on a red light intersection, I slam on my brakes as I must have nodded off and to avoid hitting the person in front of me, I hop a curb and end up crashing through the glass front of a store in a strip mall. I remember feeling absolutely terrible and very scared because there is no way I’d be able to afford the increased insurance, the cost to repair the building, and then my car. So I put my head down on my steering wheel in disbelief and a majorly sunk stomach, knowing I’ll have to face the music when the cops arrive. I keep wishing to myself that it wasn’t real, that I’d wake up and it was just a dream, but I knew it was real.

When I wake up, it’s nighttime, and I stumble out of my car which is still crashed into this place, which now I see is a medical office, like an urgent care place. It is dark outside and I’m now very confused (but my brain understands it’s a dream now and not real). There is no glass on the ground anymore and my car suddenly disappears. I go to exit the glass door and a female, probably the doctor of the place smiles warmly at me and shakes me hand. I know I can’t go yet because I need to take care of what just happened, whatever it was. Then, all of the sudden everything is totally cool, the place is filled with people milling around and I’m living with these people in this small place. The female, a little older than me, but obviously one of the higher ups of the place brings me to the little kitchen towards the front and gets me food and a drink. She has taken a liking to me and I think she’s really nice, using her as my go-to given I’m new to the place. I’m introduced to other people on my equal rank, and they’re training me to be able to perform the tasks needed of my class and rank. I finish the speedbike test where I’m supposed to follow a green line while riding the speed-bike through impossible terrain, when the female has to go on a mission. I ask her why she has to go alone and she says because it’s dangerous and takes her bike. I foolhardily follow on someone else’s bike as the others yell at me, but I’m not about to lose this female, my mentor! Even if I have no training! I follow her trail, but she’s too good and I end up being escorted back by a male mentor/senpai. He’s very kind, just like her and gives me a hug. I list around morosely, eating ice cream, when I suddenly spot her. She made it back! I run up and hug her tightly from behind. She turns around and smiles fondly at me, and suddenly we’re flying through the air with me on her back. On her back? She’s a centaur? A Pegasus??? No wonder she was so strong. I’m still clinging to her human torso, and so I hug her even more warmly…and the thought crosses my mind that I love her and I want to caress her breasts which are smaller and pert…she wears no bra. She smiles down at me again, giving me the go ahead like she too is in love with me — and I wake up.

When I close my eyes again, my brain replays the last portion of that, except the one I’m hugging tightly from behind is the male mentor, his big, strong body warm in my hands and I bury my head into his back.

…Then I wake up again. Fine, brain. Fine. Be that way.

Sunday: More work, video game (climbing, quest, shooting, hiding)

My mission is to infiltrate, destroy, and survive. I climb in and kill some robots, but it seems to be a trap! An alarm is sounding and I, we, must escape, but the exit is 10 feet in the air, the clear plastic/glass hole we dropped in from, having scaled the building. We must abandon that path and move deeper. There! The exit! But there are enemies and 2 items must be re-powered and presented to the bad guy who has holed up right in front of the exit, and as a bonus you can take him out of here as prisoner as he had defected from our organization and turned rogue. I climb the tree onto the ship sitting in the middle of the way, paving the path for my male teammates. I jump from the mast to more branches, my colleagues choosing similar but different paths. We need to climb up to drop down on the island in the upper left corner of the screen. I fall twice and it’s frustrating, but I finally reach the island. There I am directed to mix pinecones with  this other spherical substance. I don’t care about names as time is of the essence, so I take the two items in my hand (the double pinecone and the circle) and mush them together (…combine them…). But wait, I need TWO of them, so I can’t mess this up. Carefully, I pick up the second set because there is JUST enough to make 2 combinations. If it rolls down the ledge I’ll have to climb up again. I’m successful and I pick up the now glowing orb rolled out to me from behind the locked door by miniature animals. I proceed to the next island where I need to power up that orb too. In my head I’m planning ahead how I’m going to confront the exit guardian and try to keep him alive to fulfill the side mission…but I wake up.

Another annoying dream about work. A little kid with decay. A 7 year old boy with no parents with him. I take xrays and there is large decay interproximally. I go to find my doctor, but he’s on the phone, so I prepare to go ahead with the appointment, but the kid keeps talking to me. He’s really cute and I’m afraid he’s being neglected at home. I end up outside, climbing on large sides of buildings, looking for ladders, and items and a quick shortcut or a glitch out of this valley of steel.

Resident Evil – style

I get video game dreams a lot, and they’re welcome because they’re very exciting. Usually they switch views from first person to 2nd to 3rd to ceiling and back again in no particular order.

I was walking around either a ship, a plane, or a facility. They like to change on me. I’d just come up the metal staircase from the bottom floor. I turn around to backtrack, but am surprised to see signs on the doors saying “Locked! Until further notice.” I am getting nervous because that would mean I’d have no way back in case something got hairy. I only had a serrated paring knife as a weapon. Much to my relief one door did stay unlocked back down to the lower level–it was just the long way around. I navigate the narrow hallways, keeping my eyes peeled for any items along the way. I make it to my destination which is the desk of the presumably dead, but missing, captain of the place. It’s a very small desk area with papers and items strewn about, like someone left in a hurry. There on top of the desk is a gun. I carefully survey my surrounding before picking it up in case it’s a trap, but it’s not, so I clear the gun and load the clip, placing the 2 extra ones in my front right pocket. I quickly rummage around, looking for anything else useful and shove them into my pockets, cursing these female jeans, yet thankful I had decided to wear durable jeans this morning. Two of my fellow agents appear, happy to see me alive and well, and tell me I need to hurry as the operation looks to be going south and quickly. I’m trying to figure out where I can put my little knife, so they hand me a belt and then there’s a scene where I spend an inordinate amount of time putting on said belt which is almost way too small for me. I manage anyways, despite it being extremely tight, and now I have more places to put items.

They run off and my brother appears. The lights go out and the emergency ones turn on. He asks me hurriedly if I found the herb, and I look around, finding the plant. I have nowhere to put the thing, so I place it in the hall for easy reach because obviously I’ll be needing it soon. He asks me what color and I read the tag which says “Redsplice plant” which obviously means it’s red…hard to tell color when the lights are dim. I take off after him, trying to remember how to use my gun and proper holding and such (since I only took one handgun course a few months ago and nothing since) and suddenly these huge monsters appear. Obviously they used to be human, but grotesquely mutated and after our blood. I raise my gun and start firing, trying again to remember to use the sights like I was taught, hand placement and control and such, but it’s really hard because the thing is coming up on me. Thankfully, it’s not running, but walking speed is too fast in the limited space with nowhere to turn around. To make matters worse, my gun isn’t doing ANYTHING to it at all. No stopping power. In fact, it seems as effective as a water gun. No recoil, nothing. After emptying the clip, I give up on it, as I’ve been backed up into the tiny office. I pull out my little serrated knife, dodge a body slam attempt and, go right for it’s neck as it’s trying to get up from the ground. It’s awful trying to sever a humanoid neck with a paring knife. I vaguely remember someone else jumping on top of it to keep it on the ground. The blood, the flesh, slowly giving way, and being unable to do anything to the spine, but it didn’t matter because this was life or death and I was going to survive.

The dream fast-forwarded to much later along the line of the story. I ended up in a castle-like building, grandiose and full of marble. My job here was to infiltrate and quietly look for clues to help me find the person I was after. I quietly sneak up on a group of fruits with faces who were bouncing around in a group. They looked very cute, but given the nature of the place and all the monsters encountered thus far, the only reason fruits would have faces and be alive is because of whatever mutagen was floating around and once again, it was going to be me, not them. They all turn and look at me as a group and I start grabbing them and cutting them up with my little knife (apparently I’ve not found any better weapons), like you would cut up fruits. I’m viciously and efficiently sawing away when a human comes up upon me. He looks like a butler of sorts. Good news he’s a neutral party (I’ve got my eyes on him though…) so I ask him if he’s seen this girl I’m after. He says no, and I point out that her iPhone is right there on the ground. He brings me over to a large window. I see below us that the busy street is full of college students in uniforms bustling around. He tells me that she was over there. I curse my bad luck that I had just missed her. He’s still suspicious to me, but I have no reason to cause beef with him, so I go back to pick  up the iPhone. I come back to the window to try and work through this new development. My special vision (or possibly an app on my phone) shows me that she indeed had been here, walking this particular line in front of the window. A stately woman shows up and the butler asks her if she’s seen said girl. I pull up a picture of her on my phone to show them (happens to be a very old schoolmate of mine) and the woman initially says no, but thinks about it). It’s getting dark out and they light a fire in the grand fireplace, warming up the area. I figure maybe I should rest for now, as more than likely the female will be far from here, possibly in another country.

End dream.

Song, tomato, assassin, bathroom

I hate bathroom dreams…they’re the worst! But let’s start the farthest back I can remember.

Somehow I had gotten my hands on 2 assassin’s creed articles of clothing! One was a woman’s long skirt, yellowish, flowing and with the Assassin’s emblem on it. The other was a man’s pants. Contrary to myself, I chose to wear the long skirt because it seemed more like the game! Even within the dream as I was either running away or towards something with a friend, I kept telling them that I never wear skirts, ever, but long skirts are OK (especially when it’s like the Assassins). There was this long stretch of stone road, empty next to the water. It led to a large stone gate of some sort and I sprinted down the way towards this arch either trying to assassinate someone or to get away from someone. There was a minor cutaway to an alternate time when I wore the pants instead, but my brain decided it liked the skirt better.

Jump to a backyard deck. It was large and the yard itself was a decent size, backed by trees. The sky was gray and getting to be evening time, but threatening to rain at the same time. I had all sorts of plants growing there and I vaguely remember some spider webs on them because the mosquitoes were attacking my flesh. Not uncommon. I go back inside and I can’t remember what happened here, but all of the sudden I’m back on the deck but this time my brother is with me and I’m exclaiming about all the fruits! The deck was butting up to the neighbor’s deck too and I think they had some plants, but not like mine. There was a pomegranate plant, tomato plant, and 3 trees of some sort of fruit. I only know that because I took my phone out and tried to take this cool outline photo of the 3 trees against the dusk sky. Try as I might I couldn’t get my hands to remain steady, so they all came out somewhat blurry, but rather cool. I pick a very ripe pomegranate off the tree, so ripe that it was starting to mold and fell right off the plant. I couldn’t wait to tell my mom about the plants. I took another look at the tomato plant, bursting with tomatoes and realized to my tremendous delight, that the thing I mistook for a very hardcore spider web was actually a massive round tomato (they were all green at the moment) almost guarded by the web. Like, easily 5x the size of the other tomatoes. I was thrilled beyond anything ever and took the pomegranate inside the house. My mom decided to move everything off of the deck so that I could power wash and re-seal the wood. I exclaimed that it’s too early because it’s still summer, the tree isn’t gone yet and also, I have to go to work, it’s not like I have the summer off, but I help bring things in.

Once further inside the house, we were on vacation. It was our first day at the beach house. I was wearing my swimming things and it was night so time to time to sleep. The bathroom I was using turned out to be the smallest thing you have ever seen with the oddest setup ever. When you walk in you see a very nice vanity (the bathroom must have just been renovated) facing the door, but it’s not backing a wall, behind it (not centered, just behind it) is the toilet and not 5 inches in front of that is the tub. I really had to poop and I needed to hurry up and poop so I could sleep or go somewhere, so I start pushing and standing on the vanity. Body doesn’t want to cooperate. Then the lights go out and I jump down and out to tell my brother to go flip the breaker. He says it’s not the switch, and realizes the problem is that he turned on the ceiling fan in his room. Whatever, it works now, so I go back and close the door and get on the sink again. Then it occurs to me that there’s a toilet in the bathroom, I just hadn’t seen it, so I go wedge myself around the vanity to sit on this cramped toilet. Colon finally starts giving and suddenly I realize that I never took off my swimming shorts. Oops. So I take those off and am finally properly using the toilet, but now I have to go wash my swimming stuff. Sigh. I get up to jump into the bath to take a shower and I wake up.

haaaate poop and pee dreams. The dream ended because I was afraid of what I was doing in real life. Every time through the night a dream would change I’d get background music from Taylor Swift: Wildest Dreams.

Cartoon, Dan Schutte, greyhounds, vet, rocks

I’m back to weird dreams! Whoo! In no particular order.

I was supposed to bring my dogs to the vet. They had several locations and I needed to go to a particular one. My dogs and I make it to my normal vet…now you have to realize that these vet offices are inside and underneath large boulders. Large, flatish boulders with rock-hewn doors that I needed to kick in. Something martial happened, however, and I was chased away from my office. Now I need to find it again but I can’t remember which one. For some reason I am a giant and the boulder buildings and doors are  half of my height. I guess I was too tall to read the small signs, so I go around and kick in doors to peer in a see if the receptionist is right. Finally, we get to the right vet, but I don’t get to go in because onward to another dream!

I’m sitting in a pew in a very large, archaic looking church. My mom is somewhere nearby. I’m half listening to someone say something and half watching cartoons. Looking up, there is this one guy making a large commotion in the center aisle. He’s an average, plumpish fellow looking to be in his late 40s with glasses and a 5 o’clock shadow. He’s making everyone laugh who can hear him and was quite animated. As I watch he hangs on the end of a pew and speaks softly but excitedly to a younger female sitting there. She laughs and he rushes away to get something. I look down and then back up to see that the female has changed seats to sit right next to me. She has wide eyes and tells me that she doesn’t want anything to do with him and can she sit with me. I shrug and tell her he looks very familiar like I know him from somewhere. As I sort through my memories, I am sent back to the time that I did meet him.

Turns out I knew him because he had invited himself to spend the night at my place. He had met my grandma in the street and she invited him to my place for the night. His name was Dan Schutte (who in real life happens to be the author to several famous church hymns) and he needed a place to stay. I am reminded that he had brought his own pajamas, a matching set, white with brownish dots that were designs of some sort. A jolly sort of guy but borderline annoying.

Recollection stops and I tell my new friend about that. She’s like wow and asks me what cartoon I’m watching. The screens are holographic projected screens that are stacked in the air in front of me and those around me, for public use. I am watching a funny kid’s cartoon and we go through a few episodes. It’s getting late and the people around me are falling asleep, which means that my family-friendly shows are no more. The screen shows people living in futuristic pods on a ship. The man asks a pretty young woman to leave the pod she shares with her husband and to help another man inside his, she goes in and realizes he’s not in trouble but is trying to seduce her instead, so she protests and tries to leave, but she is locked from the outside in the cramped space with the lech. I try to switch the channel to something more suited to having my mom around, but everything is geared towards adults now. Even the revamped Animaniacs employs adult humor and swearing. I look over and notice my mom is sleeping soundly and with nothing else on, I shrug and settle in to sleep myself.

There is also a dream that I now remember only vaguely, obviously having been dreamed as one of the first dreams, but it dealt with a magnificent beach house, no windows only open air and gossamer curtains. Unfortunately disaster strikes! We are beset by those who wish us harm so the house becomes a tactical strategy game in the realm of XCOM and Fire Emblem!

Ex, game

I dreamed about him last night. Amongst other things that I don’t remember right now.

I had just arrived home and I knew that he was there somewhere, so I finished up what I was doing downstairs with a mix of annoyance, surprise, hesitation, anxiety and excitement. The house was this townhouse, but very large with many people in it. I make it upstairs and go into the dark room that is mine (the master). The TV was playing and it was too dark to make out anything in the room, but I thought I saw a lump on the bed. I go into the bathroom and quickly change out of my clothes into something comfortable but decent. I come out, turn on the light and there he is taking a nap in my bed. Coming up, I had rehearsed in my head what to say to him, and what I should do, but all of that flew out the window. As I say, “hey, what’re you doing here?” in a happier tone of voice than I had intended, he stretches his arms without getting up and I can’t tell if he opened his eyes or not (they’re small to begin with) but he’s smiling that half smile of his. I can’t help but smile too and my body moves for me. I run my hands along his arms and then his chest and then going into a hug (I’m standing), mentioning with much surprise from my part about how much weight he’s lost. His body wasn’t the same. He says he’s not skinny he’s still fat and I protest, but he cuts me off and tells me his arm and shoulder still hurts (just like it had been). I poke around and he turns onto his stomach. I test the should muscles and around the blade and he doesn’t say anything just smiles a bit into the pillow. He said he had been lifting weights with his dad, that’s why.

My brain is well aware that we are no longer together, but I want to help him, so I sit on his back and stretch his arms while feeling around to see if I can pinpoint the area. My body begins to respond like it used to but my brain has a mission. He’s still not indicating anything and seems to be enjoying the massage and stretching. I then tell him to get up and stand up and he does, but he’s being silly now and only sort of doing what I ask him. I tell him to put both arms out parallel to the ground and demonstrate for him. He’s still doing that small smile while pretending to be inept so that I have to move his arms for him. Then I ask him to turn the palms up and point his fingers to the ground. He “messes up” for a little while and I start getting irritated but not at the same time. I was intending to do an assisted stretch to help.

Then all of the sudden everything is thrown into a video game and several other people are in the mix, only their heads floating around metallic cubes on a grid, since that’s how the game is set up. Something about the fate of the world resting with us and then we’re under attack and have to defend our position. I lose track of him altogether, but I know he’s there.

The end.

Video game type dreams!! I should really type these up immediately because I’ve already forgotten some of it.

I was a normal young person when all of the sudden I was hit with some sort of accident leaving my brain handicapped. Unable to think properly, move coordinatedly, not even speak well. Immense pain in my head and constant dizziness/nausea. I kept getting an image of a large void in my brain. My mom was extremely worried for me and brought me to the grocery store which is a public place and everyone got to see for themselves how invalid I was. A worried doctor met us there and kept me under his care, testing my reflexes and everything. It was a major blow because it was my or our job to infiltrate a facility, but now the main operative was down and out…what could I possibly do? Apparently I still needed to be there because they still took me to the place where our team was being ruthlessly overrun…but. AH HAH! It was all a ploy! As we pushed through level after level of obstacles and enemies (I guess I was still able to do minor supportive roles), we finally get to the end and the enemy’s guard was down give their arch-nemesis was rendered useless, and I sprang into action! At my sole decision, the void in my mind filled right up and WHAM. Victory for good guys! Even my team didn’t know the plan and so it was quite a stir!

Now cut to my extended family. I was taking pictures or something on a bed of one of my old classmates and there was this adorable French bulldog, dark brindle, sleeping there. I spilled water on everyone for some reason but the dog couldn’t even bring itself to care and kept sleeping. I rubbed its belly and it slowly slid over onto my lap where I fussed over it. So adorable! Then the dream became videogame-like where my extended family and I were participating in some quests/games like scavenger hunts and such in this large facility filled with different rooms. Kind of like a convention or a festival. I was doing pretty well looking for chests and looting from them before everyone else to get points. It was strange the way it would switch from digital playing to in-person lifelike. Anyways there was this one room where everyone’s dogs were there. I remember looking for my dogs and chasing after Gable who decided to poop in this place. I was very embarrassed and was looking for how to clean it up. The other dogs had pooped everywhere too and suddenly it was my job to clean everything up while everyone else stood around talking to each other. The weirdest part? The dogs had all pooped on these napkin squares and I had the hardest time trying to pick them up without spilling the poop off. I was trying to stack them and not to breathe in the smell or make a mess, but alas.

Jump (thankfully) to the next part where I wandered by myself after the above festivities with family to the rest of the convention type place. I passed by some sweepstakes for cars that I’d wanted to sign up for earlier but was afraid everyone else would complain for it being a scam. I saw one for a new Corvette and the sign said it was a Disney sweepstake so I started filling out the form, but noticed that it needed a code. I looked up to see a lady walked to me. Dread filled my stomach, fearing that I would have to sit through a sales pitch before being allowed to enter. She was very friendly, though and looked at my entry, saying, oh you’re a female. I was confused until I looked up and realized that the Corvette entry was for males and the pink picture over on the other side was for females. Instead of a Corvette, though, it was for a Lexus, small sporty car, but not anywhere on par with the Corvette. I pulled a face and told her let me just enter it and if they want a male as a winner then I can give them my brother because he’s the one who likes Corvettes anyways. She gave me the code and placed the entry for me and then invited me over to the big table so that I could partake of the tacos they had there. There were couples all eating tacos together. She made me a taco and had me sit down to eat. It. Was. GOOD. I got up to get some more after finishing the first one and eavesdropping on all the other conversations. I had to fight with another guy to get the remaining ingredients which were running low. So good!

Analysis: 

The food and fighting for it was from eating Golden Corral for dinner. The dog poop was probably because there was a dog sleeping in my room and farting. I fed them a different food last night (came in the mail, free!) which typically lends to gas. Not sure where the other stuff came from because I didn’t play any video games at all yesterday. The headache might have been a real headache from sinuses or weird sleeping position.

Video game, shopping carts, family

Last night I slept rather well having gotten much accomplished the day before and having an overall great day. However I woke up around 4am because of this interesting dream: I was in a video game type dream again, first person perspective, in the vein of Fable, Watchdogs, Assassin’s Creed and Mass Effect. It was set in a world where humans were being hunted by alien forces and my job was to survive by killing humans loyal to the aliens, save those injured or hunted by aliens, and in general stay alive. The beginning portion had lots of shadows and sneaking around and I kept failing or dying on my objective so I had to keep repeating the mission over. Eventually it became less a level-based game and more open world. I’d have to save this lady and make sure to pick up her arm on the way to the goal. I’d have to save another female whose clothes were mostly missing from fire or ripping. In my attempt to flee detection, I had to run by some destroyed buildings and slam the head of the passing human who was loyal to the aliens so that my position wouldn’t be compromised. I’d hide in rubble, between buildings, in alleyways and survey my enemies before hitting them with shots from my weapons. I’d see survivors and here’s were it starts getting weird and inappropriate (which seems to be a pattern lately in my dreams). There were 2 men lying in the rubble of a mostly destroyed building, I was looting one of them, feeling them up everywhere, asking if they had any sidequests, and then trying to get it on with them. @_@  Apparently sex didn’t matter either, because male, female, it’s cool. Everyone I’d run across it was attempt or kill them. There was one in particular which I swear started out as a man who forced himself onto/into me from behind. It was sudden and forceful and not initiated by me, but good golly I wasn’t exactly protesting either. In fact I guided his hand underneath my shirt and I hope the noises I was making wasn’t being projected aloud in real life. When he finished I turned to find out it wasn’t a man’s head after all, so a she/he? The body part was correct obviously. Then again I didn’t care and in the game I guess we were an item. Strangest part of it all? My clothes were all still on. How does that work? Who am I to question video game logic? While that was mostly enjoyable and I had a sort of relationship going, I wasn’t totally happy and continued looking for a different one, a more fulfilling on. My journey led me up to a 2nd story I’d climbed where a young woman caught me. I knocked her down and proceeded to try and kill her by holding her nose and holding my hand over her mouth. Dragged her into the shadows because I saw people coming, but it was too late to be undetected, so I continued to asphyxiate my victim. The two women were coming in to work and walked by me, not caring what I was doing. Instead they both smiled suggestively at me, signaling they had a side quest for me whenever I was ready. It creeped me out a bit, so when victim was dead, I left her there and surveyed the land below me. I see my relationship girl/guy and fly down to see them, but when I see that they’re busy pleasuring themself without me I realize that this relationship is not the one for me. I am wholly unsatisfied, so I leave to find my satisfaction.

Next portion of video game dream finds me driving cars around. I’m having fun crashing and stuff when an online girl says, hey let’s go here, to a weird part of the map. By going there I would be contributing to the main story line instead of side quests but I figure that’s better with 2 people, so sure we go there. I don’t want to go into the clown mouth so we try to find a way around it, and we do! Jump down a big cliff and enter the building from behind. It is chock FULL of people and I enter by myself because the other girl is hung up on a canoe for some reason. It’s a library! My map tells me I have some people I can talk to, so I do to add them to my progress list, and then I head over to the main mission… Around now my dogs start waking up and making noise because that’s where it ends.

Not last night but the night before I dreamed about my family. It was set back in my childhood area. I was driving my car around near Chickfila and couldn’t make a U-turn for some reason. My family members were there and I had a shopping cart. They all were supposed to pile in so I could push them to my house, but my grandpa staunchly refused because I drove to scary. I said fine, you guys figure it out and so my mom and I took a walk down the road. She found some apple trees and started picking them. I look down the road near the mall and see my family members trying to load into this shopping cart. I feel bad because I’d lost my temper and go over to help them. Apparently only I knew really how to work it. They’re more amenable now that they had trouble. Dream cuts away.

Games, king cobra, guys, deli food, dad

Woke up not wanting to leave my beautifully soft pillow, but alas. The dreams were pretty fun, though, mostly set up in the form of video games.

As I was wandering around this video game world (1st person, my view), with items, objectives, and data to collects, I was playing with some friends and my brother, but I kept wandering off to do my own thing as they were launching assaults into other areas. I remember I opened a lock and one of my buddies ran in to grab the chest before I could in jest. I was exploring the map and was under fire from enemies so I took the nearest warp point which set me right at the feet of a mid-range monster. With no friends to help, I had to hit the little toes (Zelda Skyward Sword-style) to make it fall down, but I must have woken up or gotten hot, because the dream changed.

Now I was in a supermarket, at the deli counter, having gone through a small portion of the store already. I was debating (like in other dreams) what I should get, a little disappointed that unlike last time (other dream) their dessert section wasn’t nearly as expansive or fresh, but I told myself it was for the better because it’s healthier. Their freshly made grilled cheese sandwiches were too expensive ($2.88!!!) so I was longingly looking at the chicken, turkey and other meats fresh baked. Everything was too expensive and I couldn’t afford it. Just as I was going to leave, an enthusiastic worker who looked quite like a certain Oral Surgeon, came out with a large piece of solid yellow something. He touted to the large crowd gathered that it was fresh seasoning for the meat! He then climbed the ladder (much to the other worker’s irritation) and dripped this fat laden seasoning packet down onto the meats below. Everyone including me was so happy and they other worker started handing out samples of the newly seasoned products. It was HEAVENLY! I still couldn’t afford anything, but at that moment my mom arrived and I eagerly told her about the seasoned food! She seemed skeptical but the man came out to hawk the products again! Just as she was about to agree to buy some, the dream changed. More heat it think.

This next part was broken up into small parts partly because of heat, dogs and my need to use the restroom. Early morning usually sees that. I was doing something with one of my old suitors-still-friend guys, then it was time to meet up with other people to go for food with my dad. Obligation on my part. We were sitting in the back of a car together, must have been a taxi or an Uber, with me on the left side and he was sitting in the middle for some reason. Our legs and shoulders/arms were touching in the back of the small sedan and he was leaning purposefully on me. I remember thinking to myself that I felt very neutral about it all, very unlike how I feel when I sit next to my bf, and thought to myself that I should tell him that later. Anyways, we arrive at the food place and it was like a Checkers? You choose your food, pay with coins and choose the bigger entrees at the main counter. I took a small baguette that cost 75 cents but I didn’t have any quarters so I go tot he ATM and cash out an old gift card with $99.67 on it. Pay for that, and head to the table where my brother, dad, suitor friend and yet another online suitor friend was sitting. I remember whispering to one of them that my dad is very annoying and I wish I didn’t have to eat with him.

Dream switch to another video game dream. This time animals were involved and I was being chased by something, but I also had a King Cobra, its mortal enemy, so we crossed an ocean portion and I released the cobra in hopes that it would fight the other and give me a chance to escape. Instead, as I was trying to leave via swimming (my most vulnerable!) the Cobra suddenly jumped up, flew over top of me and aimed so that it was fall on my head. I remembered that snakes can swim and I freaked out because it was trying to kill me. Then the game paused. I guess I must have died or I don’t know. Next and last thing I did was relate to my brother this part of the game how this snake could fly and proceeded to attack me.
