Had a dream where I ate an enormous plate of spaghetti at an Australian themed restaurant. After that I got into the car with my Dad, and we were arrested and thrown in jail for creating a skid mark on the road.

Guest dreams from my family:

My sister dreamt that she had made a dance song called "Come To The West And Spend It" with a music video of Chinese Russian and Arab super rich buying stuff in Harrods. She tried to get me to sign off on it but I was hesitant.

My mom dreamt my skull was being eaten by rats.

Had a dream a bit ago that I became notorious for causing mischief on a cruise ship. The kind of mischief I would cause was that I did parkour all around the ship and eluded boat police by jumping through windows and climbing through vents. The news' nickname for me was "Project Man" and I don't know why. I still remember the news anchor's delivery as she said "Project Man is still on the loose" and so on in that sort of practiced whimsical voice that news anchors have when they're talking about charming stories like an escaped pig on the loose in a neighborhood playing with a pet dog or something.

Had a dream that every day, something would die of a heart attack at La Guardia airport. It was mostly birds, but occasionally pets or passengers.

I woke up and checked to see if anyone I knew worked there.

Dreamt that I had two prototype bicycle pedals, a clipless pedal and a flat one, and I'd gone to William Gibson's workshop to ask him to manufacture usable versions for me. He had an industrial CNC machine but was sceptical about my designs because they weren't tested. He thought that the strength of the materials he would use might result in the pedals ruining someone's power cranks. He wasn't really sure though because he was a writer and was only doing the CNC machining in his spare time.

Parts of this dream are missing. I had one piece come back to me as I was riding home from work.

I went to the pool to get some extra swimming in, but it was open swim and the lane lines weren't in. A girl in the pool, someone I apparently know but did not translate to anyone in real life, pointed out that there was a side pool, next to the trampoline, that was one line wide and almost full length. shorter than full length, but also long enough that it wasn't noticeable. It was too narrow for two, so I had to take turns doing laps with one of my college teammates who was a breaststroker and in dreamland had gained a significant amount of weight. At some point far before I had gotten a decent work out in, we were told to get out of the pool for some reason. The pool featured a glass door with a panic exit that looked out over the planes and far away plateaus and even more distant mountains and the sky was darkening to a sickly gray, the wind was picking up and we could see in the distance something like a tornado made out of what might as well have been the line piece from tetris all stacked up parallel to and scuttling across the near horizon and...doing something to it.

"Don't open the door," warned someone who seemed like an authority, but they were just a low level assistant manager at the pool or something. I was some kind of authority figure, somehow, and knew not to open the door. But it didn't matter, whatever was happening outside was not to be stopped by the door. It soon began to affect the swimmers, person by person, as they started to complain. It was palpable. The storm was a material transformation of a person's attitude to one of resignation, something like a complete unwillingness or disbelief in the ability to change anything, even themselves. The sky grew darker. There were now windows in the pool and we had a great view of the world giving up on itself, just as the pool-goers were doing. I left. Some got on me, but not enough to completely drag me down. I was still alive.

Somehow I found myself on a high mountain, crossing a rope bridge over a misty gorge to a palace built into a mountain village. People lived beneath tiered gardens and ladders let you go up and down between levels. There was a view of the plains where the pool was and it was dark gray and sandy - it had consumed itself, and anyone who was down there, into pointlessness. The people of this village knew of the danger and had built a command center overlooking the world. They said, or I knew, that whatever they had built it out of could withstand whatever the storm was. Maybe. They knew what it was and they knew how to resist it but they had no interest in doing so - they instead wanted to see what happened to the world and take notes., even as the storm grew. Deep in the cellar, where the storm was slowly climbing up the cliff, was a guy in a cell who had been exposed to whatever it was and had beaten it. He came out more determined than ever, he said he knew how to stop it but he needed to go to where the storm had started. Its strength would be too much as it was but there was no time, no time at all, we had to do this but nobody would listen to him.

I turned off my phone alarm that was set for 6:40. The clock radio went off at 6:20 and it was nothing but hissing. Not radio static, a foreboding hiss. Toggling the alarm setting found different kinds of hissing, until it tuned into a station where a man read off things that had been lost.

I had a nightmare that my terrible real life college roommate rearranged all the furniture in our dorm while I was sleeping and replaced my dresser with this antique vanity. He had pulled all the drawers out of my dresser and, with the clothes still inside, hid them in the air ducts. They got really dusty and when I looked at my roommate to scream at him he had blue snot dripping from is nose. Somehow I knew he had done all this in order to please some sort of military general that was, in the dream, our RA. After screaming at my roommate I chased down the military guy to complain but he kept evading me and suddenly our dorm building became very labyrinthine and I ended up in a movie theater.

not quite a dream but

Woke up at 2am quite validly convinced that my bed was trying to kill me, and decided I would spend the night on the couch so that I would be safe. I grabbed some sweats out of my closet, and somewhere between the closet and the bedroom door decided that death was preferable to having to leave my room, and laid back down.

I had a dream that I was watching a movie. It starred Marlon Wayans, and the plot was that he switched bodies with a cat.

It was kind of like Rob Schneider's The Animal and Halle Berry's Catwoman combined with White Chicks.

I watched hours of it and it was pure agony.

Had a dream I went to the beach for some convention. Stayed in a pretty decent hotel, but I remember taking photos from the balcony-- seeing fog swirling below and some kind of dreamy, cyberpunk skyline. (Vividly remember taking pictures that I was going to post online...on CARE TAGS DOT ORG, perhaps?)

At some point I caught up with some kid from my school that I haven't talked to in ages, and he kept apologizing that he didn't read the entire chapter for our bible study. I was confused, but later I found out that one of my friends set up a fake bible study that I was the leader of.

Dreamt that I found that 'around the corner' from me there was an asian shopping area with a multi storey brown person shop. The ground floor was reasonably priced home wares and the first floor (accessed by a four step escalator) was clothes. Both levels of the shop had intermittently flickering fluorescent lights that hued towards the green end of the spectrum. I skipped the ground floor and went straight upstairs to find rows and rows of salwar kameez.

"Finally," I thought "I won't need to buy white person brown person clothes. I'll save a fortune!"

Then I woke up and bought https://www.maharishistore.com/item/519 ... AFTAN.html

Dreamt my sister took me to a huge warehouse outlet because she wanted some cookwear. I realised that one of the aisles contained OG army surplus however and started going through the masses. There was a few dress jackets with thait authentic old wool smell. Then I found there was a bunch of plain caps with perfectly curved brims. They were made in various excellent fabrics such as ripstop nylon, cotton canvas, a towelling material and a poly cotton blend. I turned them over to see the price, they all had different price labels but all of the prices were five pounds. I grabbed about five of them and went towards the checkout.

Dreamt I was joining a tour group to North Korea but the tour guide made us travel in rowboats for secrecy and throw our phones into the water. As we arrived we could immediately see that it was under attack from American forces and I was suddenly drafted into the North Korean army to defend Pyongyang from WWII-era fighter jets.

Dreamt I was the diaper-wearing protagonist of a feel-good movie where I traveled around the world with an anthropomorphic two-headed tiger who was wanted by some international police force. He got caught and tried to escape a court hearing and we ended up being cornered in a bathroom. Ended up beating up the security guards who all resembled my friends, escaping to have another adventure.

dreamed i was out with a group of people for a meetup (sorry don't remember who). but then we walked by an atmospheric sciences museum. everyone else stayed outside looking at some giant info boards, but i had to use the bathroom so headed inside.

inside there was a ton of crazy gadgets, starting with normal crazy gadgets like VR goggles you put on to look at constellations drawn out for you (which for some reason had headphones built in, but then there were dedicated over ear headphones anyways?), and slowly moving on to more crazy crazy gadgets. there were robots driving around on wheels, seamlessly dodging around any obstacles in their way. except one of them ran over a pair of sunglasses that i negligently left on the ground, so i picked up the two parts and threw them away. also i swore i saw something that said "in collaboration with STORY MFG" on it. still have not found a bathroom yet.

there was a really great photo opportunity where sunlight streamed in into a kitchen area, with the walls painted vivid red and blue, but while i struggled with my phone to get it into camera mode the light shifted. I looked further into the room to see if it was coming back and whether there was another photo chance, and instead found a group of children around a teacher. i left them. still no bathroom.

once outside I go to see if i can find that STORY MFG collaboration sign and see just what the hell bobbin and katy have been doing with an atmospheric museum. all the stuff has been moved around though, and the tables are now mostly clear of the gadgets. I find an box on a table and start tearing it open for some reason. well, I wanted to find the story stuff, but I don't know why i decided the best route was opening a random box. inside were a bunch of clothes of all kinds: boxers, tees, and sure enough, a shore shirt. there were also lightbulbs and some random knickknacks in it.

while i've got all this stuff strewn about on this table, a group of people walk by and stop to stare at me in shock. it's the owner of the museum showing potential investors / donators (its economic plan was not a factor in my dream, okay?) the museum. he questions me about why i opened this when. "to see what is inside," i tell him. at which point he points to the side of the box, which helpfully details the whole list of contents. jfc. he then proceeds to point to the wall across from it, which was not present in my dream previously, and has an entire wall of black glass or stone, really shiny, with the contents etched in detail, the purpose of each object in the kit spelled out. there's also a huge picture of a man with longer curly light brown hair dancing in the rain, wearing a shore shirt and green fatigue pants cuffed high.

what a fantastic dream (smiling)

Dreamt someone tried to steal my acronym jacket whilst I was in the bathroom at work. I chased him down and it was some punk ass student from the university. I felt bad about ruining his life but spent the rest of the dream doggedly trying to find the police so they could arrest him because I wanted to press full charges
