I had a very cool but strange dream within a dream.
I am going to see Inception again with my girlfriend Angela. People at the theater keep talking during the movie, and I can't pay attention, so I decide to go to sleep. I wake up dreaming that I'm in an art gallery. I walk around for a little, and see one very strange artist who makes me realize I am dreaming! I freak out and wake up - back in the previous dream. So weird.
For the first half of the night, I was drunk, so I did not recall much of anything. I woke up around 6:30, went to bed about an hour later, and dreamed.
I'm with my girlfriend, Angela. We're in a weird house where people are having a party or something. There's a movie playing. I can't remember what it was about, but it stirred up some passionate conversation among the people watching it. I feel like at some point I was watching it, but like I said, I gots no memories of it. At one point, I'm sitting at a table of Pitt Trumpets, telling them how I really like everyone in the trumpet section and I want them to get along. Later, Angela and I wind up at the apartment of two of my former roommates. Ange keeps telling me how she doesn't like the one and doesn't want to be there. I tell her that I know, I'm sorry, and we'll leave soon. We eventually go to her house, where I watch her mom and her make lasagna. Her mom leaves, but then my puppy is there! He learned how to open doors (in my dream only ) and he opens the door for my dad, who brought us spaghetti and meatballs 'as a snack.'
I went to bed last night stating my intention: I will have a lucid dream because I will recognize the dream state.
I am taking a test about Star Wars, or something. I put my test in a book and put it aside while the teacher talks. Then, I take it back out, and the answers are filled in and it's graded with a B! I am distraught by this so I call the teacher over. She doesn't understand either. Later, I am outside a house on the opposite side of my block, talking with my girlfriend. She tells me about her 'neighbor,' a girl whom I went to high school with. Following that, I go to some weird dinner party where a bunch of my friends are sitting at long tables. I see my friend Jeremy, and he tells me that this is a dream. I am ecstatic! I jump up and thank him profusely for telling me that I am dreaming, for I am now lucid. I try to spin around, but I forget to close my eyes, so it doesn't work; I'm still in the banquet hall. I look up at the ceiling and try to float through it, but I notice my mother and float over to her. I start dancing with her, and she says something like "Don't you think this is a little inappropriate?" "No, mom, I'm dreaming!" I respond. I spin her around and kiss her cheek, telling her I love her and I'm so happy about this. I rub my hands together and the dream feels more intense. Then, I look up to the ceiling, and determined to fly through it, I wake up laughing. It's a false awakening, though I fail to realize it. I was impressed, though (with myself), because my first thought was at least to write the dream down. So, I woke up downstairs, which should have clued me in, but I turned off a bunch of lamps because they were too bright, which did not serve to alert me to my state. I grabbed a weird notebook which happened to be full of drawings of 3 guys doing goofy stuff, and I wrote like a damn 3-year-old (should have recognized that, too; I wrote the word 'dream' as 'dreem'). I then 'went back to sleep' and had another dream.
I'm walking through some strange caverns that lead to my old high school. I see the Avatar and other strange floating characters; I observe that each of them has some weird spirit guide floating next to him/her, but Aang's is a copy of his own foot. Weird! I meet some people from work out in the lobby and we go sit down at some tables and eat vegetables. But then it feels as if I am driving and I'm at a dark intersection; I see 'French' to the left and 'British' to the right; I head left and run into some strange spy-sniffer person, but I'm not a spy and have nothing to fear.
wake up, try to MILD WBTB, no success
I'm in my neighbor's back yard, and they're setting up for dinner. I don't know why I'm there; these people hardly ever talk to me. It's even weirder when they all say hi. I start petting a dog that they don't have. I let him off the leash because he's whiney. The father wants me to put the leash back on, so I do. They invite me to sit at the table with them. There is a lot of random food, and I don't really remember eating anything. A belligerent grandpa figure comes to the table (he's not there IRL) and tells us about a movie he played the villain in recently. It looks like it's going to rain, so we go inside, and I help them put the food away; specifically, I clear some vegetable scraps from the counter, and then I put some pizza in a box to go in the fridge.
1 I feel as if I am living in the Digimon world. There is a little girl who can summon/control monsters by turning words into a numerical code - each letter represented by the alphabetic ordered number, minus the vowels. There is an evil lady who tries to take this power from her. At the foot of a mountain, I find a weird subway station where I play a weird game that reminds me of YuGiOh. It is my turn, and I am able to turn the game to my favor. After the game, I board the subway cars and sit with 3 other people - little kids, 2 girls and a boy. One girl is tomboyish and has a huge crush on the boy. The other girl starts hinting that SHE likes the boy as well, which makes the first girl incensed. She yells a lot, and she is annoying.
2 I forget how, but by some weird magic, I have created a soulless puppet whose head is made of a pop bottle, I think. He creeps me right the hell out, so I decide to put him near danger so he will die quickly. I challenge this biker gang leader lady to a fight, and she whips out her two swords. The puppet gets stabbed in the head and dies eventually. The biker lady really tries to wound me hard! I see her attacks in a sort of comic-book format. After she calms down, she starts deciding where we will go next.
3 Sciulli and some old man and I are walking around a strange neighborhood. Sciulli and I talk a lot about philosophy. I try to run ahead, but never make it that far. We step into a small house momentarily and check it out. There are weird paintings and old furniture.
library - I'm looking for a book on logic at the library where my friend Sara is apparently working. (should have RCd). I'm with Alphonse Elric, the giant suit of armor from Fullmetal Alchemist (should have RCd). We are antagonized by some strange robot, and I perform alchemy with a set of steel marbles. They go flying across the room at my will. I can recollect them with another action.
sammich race - I'm playing a videogame against a group of boys to win a delicious, delicious hoagie. I win and only have to pay tax.
Devil went down to Shaler - I'm a street near my house, and a vicious mentor is mediating a trumpet battle between me and a friend from high school. I am determined to show her that although we're both good, she's better than me at trumpet. She is convinced that I think I'm the best at everything, which makes us both mad.
South Park - I have a dream where I am sort of watching an episode of South Park from within the episode. Me and three other kids are playing some sort of game that Cartman is trying to ruin. Later, we try to take a kid to the dentist to have a strange robot removed from between his teeth. He doesn't want to go through with it, so we have to force him.
last one - I am driving to the pharmacy at which I used to work with my old boss and his son, who, for some reason, is acting quite rude and spoiled. I try to help him look for his prescription when we get there, but it's not ready yet.
On reflection, the version of the pharmacy is totally different in my dreams from real life. I should probably RC every time I go there or think about it.
