Last night, I dreamed that Mom and I were part of a large group that had an opportunity to travel somewhere. We were the oldest people in the group. We were all in some waiting room--didn't look like an airport or train station, maybe it was a travel agency or the auto club--waiting to buy our tickets. Finally we were next in line, and I said something to Mom about making sure we got seats together, but she said she didn't think they had two seats together for sale. I went back to our seats to get something or check something and then turned around to go back to the counter as it was probably our turn, and Mom wasn't there. No one knew where she was; it was like she had vanished into thin air. I was frantically trying to find someone to help. She was nowhere to be found, not in the restrooms, not in the building. Then I was crying and trying to text one of my friends, because I knew she could help me find Mom, but I kept having trouble texting.

A few weeks ago, I was being disturbed in my sleep by my brother's cat. My fitful dream-brain took the frustration of a cat pawing at the door and meowing, and turned it into the related frustration of being impeded in driving out of a car park by an anteater snuffling at my front bumper. It wasn't just any anteater though; for some reason, the anteater and I happened to be old friends. Unfortunately, he was also the model used to design crash-test dummies (I don't know why they used an anteater for this), and the dummies produced in his likeness were so realistic (again, I don't know why this would be the case) that he was mistaken for one and strapped into a car to be slammed into a wall at high speed. The dream ended with the anteater looking at me from the driver's seat and shedding a single tear.

Well, I have a new favorite dream, and it's not even one of my own.

Eh, I'll just list off a bunch of things that were involved in my dream(s) last night, since I have very little idea of order of appearance.

There was Yui and Azusa from K-ON! (probably the result of me rewatching a bunch of episodes), and small versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were sticking close to them. ( :) By small, I mean maybe half a... 8) ...foot.) At some point, I took a puff on a pipe for some reason, but then decided that was enough and starting looking for a place to dispose of it. There was a hotel room that was apparently mine that I went into; there was an advertisement for a movie that made my 3D vision in "reality" a little odd after viewing a little bit of it; there was a point in the dream where I was wearing rollerblades that I don't remember putting on, but then taking them off because I realized they were Barbie brand; out in the semi-wild, I saw alligators swim in a river, and there were kids and dogs and hippos in another watery area away from them... um...

You know how sometimes dreams can be based on things in the real world? Well last night/this morning (it was 6am, so this morning) i dreamt that someone had a squeaky hamster. Woke up and i could still hear the dang squeaking.

Turned out it was my nose. Bit plugged up due to a mild cold, so when i breathed through it, it sound like a squeaking rodent. Heh.

I know this well. I may have mentioned before, maybe not, but on multiple occasions, my alarm clock's snooze button has been the answer button on a game show. I'm always the fastest.

I had a very strange dream the other night, involving being accosted by security at a shop and my rucksack somehow depositing all of its contents into a public toilet sporting a sizeable and impatient queue, leaving me completely at a loss for what to do. I awoke in severe need of lavatorial relief.

I find peculiar dreams very frustrating: on the one hand they fascinate me and I'd be very keen to share them, but on the other I fear they might contain some symbolism that reveals some terrible dark corner of my psyche that would be instantly identified by my audience, who would then rightly shun and shame me. For example, I didn't include a particularly bizarre portion of the above dream during which I was somehow urinating violently forward from somewhere in my chest (by some means other than the usual equipment), because frankly I can only see that corresponding to something terrible. Also, it's pretty disgusting. So it's better for everyone that I left it out, right?

Well, I had a dream about cows, specifically, I was watching a bunch of them just hanging around.

They weren't huge 50 foot tall cows

They weren't monster cows that thirst for blood

They weren't exploding cows

They didn't do anything weird, they were just cows, grazing, and I was just on the other side of the fence, watching..... and then I woke up

Man, my dreams are like the local cable access TV-channel of dreams, I'm almost tempted to start ingesting assorted chemical compounds just to see what will happen.......

Undoubtedly. Makes me think of Videodrome, though. While I recognize that "some means other than the usual equipment" doesn't necessarily mean a chest-vagina, I don't think it unreasonable to assume that's what you meant.

My mom and I drove past a sign for "weed-free hay," which led to a conversation about cows getting stoned. We concluded that it would be very difficult to tell a sober cow from a high one, because all they do is eat and lounge around anyway. So I put it to you that you actually had a fairly interesting dream about cows tripping balls.

By "the usual equipment" I meant the usual human equipment, not my own personal equipment. So no vaginas.

NO VAGINAS ALLOWED.

Wait

i had a dream last night that i responded to an oddly specific craigslist ad which i was quite suited to deal with. when i got there, a guy answered the door and told me the ad was a fake, even though he responded to me and told me where to meet him. at this point a super-villain named "Mega Disappointment" jumped out and gleefully proclaimed victory once again...

Am I going to get punched in the face if I bump this thread? Because I had the most messed up dream last night. I don't even... whatever.

So, I went to bed around 11:30 last night, knowing I had to get up at 7 this morning. Just like I do every night, I turned off my light and read on my Kindle in the dark. After a while, I got up to pee, and when I came back, I checked the clock on my Kindle - it was 3:45! Well, crap. I mean, sometimes when I'm reading at night I can get caught up and end up staying up an hour or so too late, but four hours? I plugged my Kindle into the charger and went to sleep. Then I had this weird dream where my parents were trying to talk to me about something really important, but in the dream, I'd taken Benedryl and was struggling to stay awake and look alert. It was really, really vivid. When my alarm woke me up at 7, I was all groggy because, well, I'd only gotten about 3 hours of sleep, right? Except no. My Kindle wasn't plugged in to the charger when I woke up, it was on the bed next to my pillow. So either I fell asleep reading, then dreamed I was still reading, then dreamed I fell asleep and had a dream where I was tired.... or I've been Inceptioned. What. The. HECK!

That is a pretty crazy dream! I mean it could have been that vivid on any other subject and you'd never have thought twice, but having started off in bed is pretty crazy. Good to see you :)

Last night I dreamt that I was in a woman's prison and was given a talking pony to care for. Rather than being thrilled, as you'd expect, I was always just mildly annoyed by it. For instance, it kept asking me questions as I played ping-pong on a table with a built-in ant farm. Eventually I escaped the prison and was immediately attacked by a fox.

Sounds like a My Little Pony, Orange is the New Black mashup. Maybe no more Netflix before bed. :)
