    1. Comp Dreams Part II

      by , 07-16-2024 at 03:20 AM
      Back to my apartment tonight, so I can post the rest of the dreams from the competition that I had saved on my other laptop:

      July 6th, 2024 (Comp Night 1)

      Dream 1:

      Some people are at a prom (I can tell it’s a prom because there is a sign that says something like “This is our Prom”). There is something going on with a guy and a girl. I think this might have started out related to the Happy Days TV show at first. Anyway, a guy is sitting at a table, and someone is saying something like “you won’t like it”. Then a show starts on a stage up front, which appears to be some inappropriate burlesque thing. This involves the girl that he likes, and he gets angry. I think people have to hold him back from storming the stage

      Dream 2:

      There is something going on in which people are learning to dive in what looks like a swimming pool. This involves them getting over their fear of going into the water fully clothed, apparently. Someone is encouraging people to do this, and then I do it as well. I kind of show off, being used to doing this, and I jump into the water. As I go down into the water, I find that there is actually just a layer of water and air underneath it. Possibly for the trainees – they aren’t ready for the full water experience or something. There are rooms nearby that are full of water, and I explore these also. A couple of other people go with me, I think. The rooms are connected to other pools as well, so that you can go into an adjoining room and resurface in a neighboring pool.

      Fragment 1:

      I sit down and look at some animals in a zoo. [Possibly the same dream]: walking along a road through the woods. There are bears in the woods. I don’t want to attract their attention.

      Fragment 2:

      In a store with my Mom. There is some underwear on clothing racks.

      July 7th, 2024 (Night 2)

      Playing Lurkers. When I start playing, the blue team is attacking the red team. There are lots of them. I’m part of the red team, and I try to lead a charge against blue. It seems to be somewhat successful. There is a graphic at the bottom of the screen showing the progress of the teams. Red makes a little progress, it seems.
      Replaying Portal 2. There are a few cutscenes of GLADOS. I remember that this was the one with the Cave Johnson stuff.

      July 8th, 2024 (Night 3)

      Dream 1

      Sherlock Holmes is on a case. There is lots of blood involved, and a dog, I think. Holmes goes into a building, and I think the dog follows him. The dog walks into a room with a lot of blood, and starts howling. From the outside, we aren’t sure why he’s howling, and are a bit concerned that something happened to Holmes. But the detective is OK, and comes back out. He is trying to conceal how bloody he is under a blanket. There are a couple of us, and we bundle together under the blanket hoping that people who see us will think that we are a romantic couple on our way home.

      Fragment 1

      Going to Church. In the parking lot, I’m trying to find somewhere to park. The lot is mostly full, but I find what seems to be a half of a parking place. My Jeep fits into this, although someone questions whether or not I should park there. (Possibly the same dream: I’m pulling into a parking place. There is someone trying to tow another vehicle, and I wonder if they needed the place I just pulled into).

      Dream 2

      It's the last day of school. I’m walking down a hallway, and cut through the back of some classrooms. The students are having a pizza party. They also have lots of boxes of eggs. These turn out to be hard boiled eggs, and the pizza turns into fried chicken eventually. So they are having chicken and eggs as a celebration meal. I try one of the eggs myself. It is very large, and yellowish in color. I make a joke to someone. Referring to the eggs and the chicken, I ask which came first.

      Dream 3

      I’m working in a store. My job involves standing at a checkout counter, but not actually checking anyone out. A man comes along, and puts a bunch of stuff on the counter. I think he wants me to check him out, but I explain that he needs someone else for that. I think he might also try to do something he isn’t supposed to do – it involves fruit snacks that are packaged in folders like books. I point him to a cashier, but then the cashier explains that this man is a thief and has tried to steal from them before. The fact that he has shown up again means that we now have to check the food on the shelves, because he might have done something to it. There is some concern about my brother, because if he ate any of the food it might affect his asthma somehow. I wonder why this would be. Eventually, I go to the boss and ask, very respectfully, what the relationship is between the thief and asthma.

      Dream 4

      I’m walking out of Church with a couple of elderly men. One of them has a cane, I think. We are talking about my grandfather, and how he is doing. In the dream, he is not doing so well physically, but his mind is still sharp. I mention this, and say something about how a good day for him is when his mind is clear. We come to some stairs and I wonder about the man with the cane. He seems to think he can do the stairs OK, and we go down. In the parking lot, the man falls down. By the time I get to him, he is back on his feet, and he starts jogging across the parking lot.

      Fragment 2

      Working in the lab.

      7.11.2024 (Night 6)

      Dream 1

      A lady is assisting with a magic trick. It involves a painting. Presumably the painting is supposed to change in appearance, or something. She is holding it in such a way as to be unable to see it herself. The picture changes, I think, and when she looks at it she is surprised. In fact, she had been sure that it would not change, and is so embarrassed and/or shocked that she falls over and starts crying…

      …There is a disease that some people have. The disease is fatal, but there are some fungal spores that help. I recall seeing some, and go to find them…

      … There is something in which we are able to communicate with someone through a drinking glass. Then some cookies are dropped into the glass …

      …There is some event going on outdoors. I get in my car to go somewhere. I see a lady coming behind me, and think that she might want a ride. I don’t want to give her a ride, so I try to leave before she can ask me. I also notice that a lot of the women around are scantily clad. As I drive away, I decide to pick up something and take it back to the event. It turns out that what I am picking up is bundles of money. They are bundled together like roofing shingles. I bring them back, but then drop them on some stairs on my way.

      Meanwhile, someone asks me about the “blacker beach”. By this they mean a traditionally “black” beach (as in an African-American beach harkening back to segregation), only “black-er”. I don’t think I know exactly what they are talking about, and I start to mention this to someone standing with me. I notice that the man I am talking to is a minority, and I think I try to avoid bringing up the racial component…

      Fragment 1

      …There is a town where they are planning some big Gay pride thing. I’m considering going to protest…

      Fragment 2

      …In Church. They are singing a song. My brother is on stage, for some reason, and I don’t like that. I try to sing along. The song ends, and it is nearing the end of the service. I make some loud comment about my brother being on stage, which I then feel embarrassed about. The service soon ends though.

      Fragment 3

      Painting a rock on campus a gold color.

      7.12.2024 (Night 7)

      Fragment 1

      Something about the Lone Ranger. I seem to be pretending to be tracking them, and say to whoever I’m with that I see the tracks of “two men – one white man and another white man pretending to be an Indian”. Then there is something about some poles, or something.

      Dream 1

      Playing lurkers.io. I get killed and respawn with a crossbow and a new thing – which turns out to be a motorcycle. At some point I either fall, or perhaps there is an explosion and I am launched into the air. I manage to make my character land on a block, and try to get back to more solid ground. I jump from block to block, until I find myself trapped with a bunch of blocks. I start digging away at these, but accidentally dislodge a bunch of them and the section that I’m standing on gives way.

      7.13.2024 (Night 8)

      Dream 1

      Walking around Wellington. There is a little kid who starts telling me about a weird man who lives in a certain house. He can see through the window. It’s a bit vague what it is that he sees, but it seems to be kind of sinister somehow. Neighborhood kids go in there and disappear, or something. It’s almost as though this weird guy has some power over this kid. He fears that he will go into the house, either against his will or under something like hypnosis. There is also something about people starving. I think that my Church could help, but I don’t have any information for him to contact. So, I go to find some information, possibly going to the Church.

      By the time I get to wherever there is contact information, the story has shifted away from the starving people and more toward the idea that the weird man is dangerous. We need to warn people about him. So, I write up a notice to give to the kid and to make copies of to post around town. But I only have one notice, so I need to find a copy machine. I start out toward a city building (the courthouse?), but on the way realize that I could go to the library and make copies too. I go into the library, and there is a scene or two in which I worry that I might be followed. I make a dash for an elevator, and make it inside before the doors close.

      Fragment 1

      My Aunt is going down some steps. She is going rather quickly, and in a weird way. Towards the bottom, she falls…

      Fragment 2

      …We are going to have a meeting, to talk about Thanksgiving. This might be at Church, at the University, or some combination of both. There is something about meeting the family in the front of the Church holding banners that say something. I have what seems to be a small t-shirt that I am holding…

      Fragment 3

      …Going into some catacombs. This is part of a video game. I’m talking with someone, or someone else is talking with someone, about making dirty videos. But they are talking about it in a kind of sentimental way. They hope to raise some friends here in the catacombs (as in, raising the dead). Then they start fighting with a woman.

      Fragment 4

      My Dad and I are walking around a town at night. There is a street that you can walk down that I like, with a bunch of lights and some arcade-style games. We start going down there, although I tell Dad that there might not be much open at this time of night. It turns out that there are some games that you can play. My Dad asks me if I want to play one of them – a ski ball kind of game. I decide to play.

      Something about a person who fell in love with the sick person with whom they were communicating. This is likened to Florence Nightengale. [Interesting thing - The next day, I went to the store and saw some guy with a t-shirt that said "Florence Nightengale Vibes".]


      Dream 1

      There is some restoration work going on. Some nice wood is laying off to the side, looking as though they are going to get rid of it. I ask about it (possibly because my Dad wants it if they are going to trash it), but they are going to keep the nice wood paneling. My friend and former coworker, N_ shows up at some point. I find myself still attracted to her, even though she seems to be bald now. Also, she is married. But her husband seems to ignore her. I’m tempted to flirt with her, but she is married even if her husband is neglectful.

      Then someone approaches in a vehicle. Maybe it’s her husband? Anyway, there is a scene reminiscent of something from Mad Max, with cars and such, and then something that reminds me of a scene from an old John Wayne movie in which there is a shootout. Then there seems to be an outright slaughter.

      At some point, I find a room that I remember working on in the past when I did restoration work. There is a squirrel and/or a cat in this room. At first, I think, there is the squirrel. It seems to be injured, or sick. It, and/or the cat, has some large lesion on its back. Then the cat chases the squirrel, I think. Something happens to the lesion on the animal, so that there is a large hole in the back now. There was also something about a damaged baby doll – kind of creepy looking, with something that happened to its face.

      At another point (possibly the same dream) people are being interrogated about something. This seems to involve torture.
    2. Some Dream Comp Dreams, Part 1

      by , 07-14-2024 at 11:35 PM
      My dream journal is a bit mixed up because I started a new one on a new laptop, but have also been making entries on my old one on an older laptop. Now I'm out of town and only have my older laptop, so here are some of the entries so far:

      July 9th, 2024 (Comp night 4)

      Fragment 1

      At a library. There is a book sale going on. I don’t think there is much time left before the book sale ends (or maybe I have to leave soon) and I go to look at the shelves rather quickly. I see a nicely bound set of Edgar Allen Poe stories.

      Fragment 2

      There is some sort of computer game in which you do something with alarm clocks. The alarm clocks are also traps of some kind.

      Fragment 3

      Something about candy.

      Dream 1

      There is a place where it is illegal to sell grain to women. But there are people who work on threshing grain in secret, in sort of deep cylindrical tanks where it can’t be seen what they are doing. Women come here and are secretly given grain. This turns somehow into colored rocks that are all put into a box together (not exactly sure I remember how it transitioned into this). Then there is something where people have been baptized, but in some cases nails are sticking out of boards on the side of the house (not sure how that relates). I go around trying to pound the nails into place. I think at first I see a couple sticking out of a stove top, but on second glance I don’t see them. Meanwhile, someone I am with has strep throat. I realize that I should probably cover my face to avoid catching it. There might be a lady there too, and there is something in my mind about how this is like Muslim women in some places covering their faces.

      Now I’m moving through a jungle. We might be chased at this point. There is a kid with us, and as we come to a corner of some dense vegetation a snake appears and looks threatening. The get gets really aggressive, as though they are trying to fight the snake in panic. This seems like a bad idea to me, but somehow the kid avoids getting bitten by the snake.

      Meanwhile, Indiana Jones has become involved. Possibly, during the snake scene, someone is using his whip to fight the snake. There is a man with us, maybe a guide or something, who has a ring. Looking closely at the ring you can see what looks like an image with a shield or something that is connected to the lost continent of Atlantis. This man is also a donkey, somehow.

      Fragment 4

      At my old job. I have made a box for something, and one or two other things that I think turned out nicely. I hope this will impress the boss.

      Fragment 5

      Something about my belt.

      July 10th, 2024 (Comp Night 5)

      Fragment 1

      I am at the edge of a lake with another person. This person is telling me his theory that we might actually be in a dream. I’m a bit skeptical of this theory, but I am also wondering what difference it would make if this were a dream. He says something about having “free will”. But I argue that we have free will already, and we can do whatever we want even if this is a dream.

      Fragment 2

      Walking down the street where I used to live. I get to the corner, where my friend’s house was. There is a library here. I have been drinking something, and want to throw away my bottle or cup at the library. I find a trash can, but then I see that there is also a recycling bin. I take the bottle/cup out of the trash and put it in the recycling bin. Meanwhile, I glance inside the library to see the old familiar sites. They seem to have put in a big fancy fireplace and/or stage that wasn’t there before.

      Fragment 3

      Walking with my grandfather and I think one or two other people. There is a man and a woman together. They get into an argument, I think, and the man starts chasing after the woman as though he is going to hurt her. I try to intervene, but my grandfather (who is deceased in waking life but is in his 90s in this dream) is quicker. He runs after the couple in defense of the woman.

      Dream 1

      Playing a game. Possibly the lurkers.io game I play a lot and dream about. There is a video feed with some other players. They are sitting at their keyboards as though they are driving vehicles. I’m looking at them through what looks like the back cab window of a pickup truck. They look through at me, and one of them might even partially crawl through the window. He looks around my room, and asks about a certificate I have from the “Smith Family of Builders”. I explain that that is where I used to work.

      Fragment 4

      There is a package, with a time bomb in it. You can hear it ticking if you listen closely. Someone runs to get help, but in the meantime we try to get the package wet (somehow that would help). We fill a sink and toss the package in there, in the nick of time I guess.

      July 14th, 2024 (Comp Night 9)

      Dream 1

      At my grandparents' old house. I go to use the bathroom. I have a couple of options here. I could use a nice bathroom near the bedroom, or I could use a porta-potty kind of thing that is located underneath the bed in the bedroom. I get the idea that I should use the porta-potty, possibly because I feel like I’m not supposed to flush if I use the toilet in the bathroom. The porta-potty is located beneath the mattress, which I pull back from the bed. I’m a bit indecisive about this though, and I might end up going into the bathroom instead. I try to lock the door here, because my grandmother seems to be coming along and I’m afraid that she might accidentally come into the bathroom. This, in fact, happens. She has a tape recorder, or might be looking for a tape recorder. Rummaging through some drawers.

      Fragment 1

      I’m looking at someone’s dating profile. It shows a woman of Asian descent, wearing a dress, I think. She is dancing in what looks like a rain storm inside of a store. She might be singing the song “Singing in the Rain”. A wider view shows that the store, which sells shoes and other things, has showers mounted on a wall, and these are turned on.

      Fragment 2

      Talking to a friend on the phone. Or trying to. Somehow I think Abe is on the phone too. There is something odd going on with the phone.
    3. Last nights of competition

      by , 04-13-2024 at 09:45 PM
      April 11th, 2024

      Fragment 1

      On Myst island, doing something near the big tree. It involves turning on water in order to get the plan to work completely, and I try to remember how to turn on water. I think maybe you access the controls by pulling a lever in the clock, or maybe by flipping the marker switches.

      Planets. In space. Space ship, maybe? Something about gravitation pulls, I think.

      Fragment 2

      A bunch of cheese. It’s of the consistency of a cheddar cheese ball, but seems to be a kind of moldy cheese.

      Fragment 3

      Something about dating.

      Fragment 4

      Something about Dr. Who.

      Fragment 5

      Playing Lurkers.io (?)

      April 12th, 2024

      Fragment 1

      In an Everglades-type place. Someone says that they have seen a huge snake. Upon closer inspection, it turns out to be a giant earthworm. I look at it and say “lumbricus terrestris! It’s a giant earthworm”. There is some kind of discussion about it. Then it goes crawling along and goes underground.

      Dream 1: Dieselpunk Stuff

      Some people living in a post-apocalyptic sort of world. It might have something to do with the End Times. I think it starts out with me in jail. A guard, or someone, is hitting another prisoner with something. I intervene, and suggest that the guard hit me instead. I think I’m in better shape than the other prisoner. Then I think there is something about wondering why we don’t stand up to the guard (who also seems to be a military officer and we are in the military). It seems like he could get in trouble for this kind of behavior.

      I might have a false awakening or something, or maybe I do wake up and then go back to sleep. Anyway, I find myself “coming home” very late at night, and someone is making a big deal about it. Some kind of family patriarch is bound to come along and get after me.

      Then there are some military officers and/or elite-type people wanting to cross a street. Someone else is driving along in a car, and the elites are in the crosswalk. I think the driver is reluctant to stop for them, and there is a sort of standoff. It seems as though this sort of thing has been going on, and other types of rebellion perhaps, and as a result the elites are abandoning the area. Someone is showing a map with the areas that are now in their control. “They’re mostly wastelands,” he says.

      Then there is something about a sort of canal nearby, with a diesel punk kind of vessel going down it. The vessel is made of what looks like 4 smaller boats, connected by some sort of platform. People are doing something on it – harvesting something from the canal, maybe? I discuss with someone else how neat it would be to work on the vessel, if for no other reason than to sit there and enjoy the ambience during my lunch break.

      The vessel is going down the canal, seemingly pulled along by some belt/cables. There are small, narrow bridges crossing the canal. These are so low and close to the deck of the vessel that I barely even have to stand up to jump over them when we go under them. I just kind of raise myself up a little and the bridge slides between me and the deck. We get to the end of the cables, and I hop off. The cables are connected to some other machinery, and drive elevators I think. I go into a large building, sort of like an early 1900s city building. Then the vessel is about to depart to head back to where I came from, and I go to get on it again. There is something about someone being excited about it – they are either acting like a child or actually are a child.

      Fragment 2

      At a small community where my mother lives. There is a small lake here. We are discussing whether or not there would be deck hands on the lake. I think that if there are any commercial vessels on the lake, there are probably deck hands.

      Fragment 3

      Writing in my dream journal.

      Nap in the afternoon from around 4:00 to around 8:00.

      Fragment 4

      Somewhere, talking with a friend online. There is a sort of large canyon, and a fort built on the edge. Someone there is called a “General” or “Major”, or something. He is a dwarf, or something...

      Fragment 5

      ...Something about ground covered in frosting. There are worms in the frosting. They kind of look like gummy worms.
    4. Comp Night 10

      by , 04-11-2024 at 01:55 AM
      Up early, and took some diphenhydramine to help me sleep. That seems to either repress REM or make it harder for me to remember my dreams the next morning. Anyway, I just remember one fragment.

      Fragment 1

      Something about my Dad's leftover food in the refrigerator.
    5. Comp Night 8

      April 6th, 2024

      Dream 1:

      There was apparently a movie that once scared me a lot. It was so frightening that I stopped watching it. There was one scene especially, in which a woman goes down a set of stairs. When she gets to the bottom, there is some greenish light and something horrible apparently happened. There is also a scene in which a little dog is put into a box, and slid into an opening in a wall. Also, people that live in a suburban house, and something happens here. Some episodes of a TV show that had a strange and unpleasant noise all through them. I can hear the noise now.

      I am now watching this movie, facing my fear of it. The woman goes down the stairs to where the horrible thing is supposed to happen, but now that I watch it, it doesn’t seem to be that scary. In fact, I think I might have misinterpreted what was going on, and it wasn’t scary at all. A door at the bottom of the stairs opens up, and there is a big face. I had expected it to look scary somehow, but it looks kind of normal. The woman goes through the door.

      Some things about cloth, I think.

      At some point, I’m walking along and see an open elevator door. The elevator car inside is surprisingly large, and there is a sink, and possibly a table, inside. It sort of looks like a cross between a kitchen and a bathroom inside. It reminds me of a dream, and I try counting my fingers. Sure enough, I have more than 5 fingers on my hand and I become lucid. I see a couple of kids next to a water fountain, and try to think of what to do for the competition. I think about drinking from the water fountain, but I already did that in my 3-step task. I remember that the third step was to teleport, which I don’t really know how to do.

      “Hey kids,” I say to the kids at the water fountain, “how do I teleport?”

      They don’t give me much of an answer, so I try on my own. I try imagining a new scene behind me and turning around, but it doesn’t seem to work. I try to “walk into” the new scene, the way I “flew into” Synthos a while back. I keep repeating “up a grassy green hill” to myself while walking, or something like that. I’m still in this building, but as I look to my left I see another room/corridor where the floor tiles are green. I go this way, repeating the scene to myself, and I might actually find that there is a slight upward slope. But that’s about as far as the scene change gets. As I keep walking, I find myself going into more of these hallway/room type sections, and it’s getting darker. Eventually I find myself in a room that has either a person or a mannequin in it.

      I think I might lose lucidity around here somewhere. There is something about bringing the person/mannequin closer to me, and then I leave the room. I find myself in the front/side yard of the house from earlier. Now it’s more like a “liminal place” – the yard looks as though it’s artificial, and there is a large hole in the ground shaped like an inverted cone and made of a yellowish color.

      Something about Disney World, I think. And Jurassic Park (I think that they might be headed toward a Jurassic Park scenario – at least I joke about it).

      Something about someone on a train. They are possibly being chased, and escape by dropping down and hanging on some pipes below. He later is walking or running beside the tracks, and someone might be with him. Someone is lying on the ground later, possibly hurt or shot.

      This was one of those dreams that seems like it had a sort of emotional or personal aspect for me. Something about the terrifying movie that I was going back and watching. Maybe facing a fear from long ago?
    6. Comp Night 7

      April 5th, 2024

      Dream 1:

      There are two toilets set up facing each other. They both seem to be broken. In the one, there is a light down in the bowl that goes out. The other one might also be a washing machine. Anyway, when you try to flush the one, the other one spurts out a bunch of stuff into it, but neither of them really flush very well. Someone advises not to look at it. There is a small dog around. I think it might be one of the dogs we had when I was growing up. She hears me and gets excited. She is also trapped under a tarp. She might be able to speak English, and asks me for help. Also something about piles of odds and ends that I’m trying to wrap up into roofing shingles to tidy up.

      Then there is something about people that look like they’re homeless. One of them is a woman. I’m pacing up and down the edge of a parking lot, and she asks me where I’m going. So I show her. “I’m going from here...” I say, pointing to a spot on the ground and then walking a couple of paces away, “...to here.” The police show up and take away a homeless man. I try to give him reassurance as they do so.

      Then there is something about escaping what seems to be a space ship or a space station. It starts out with watching the beginning of a Star Wars movie. This movie starts around the present time, and shows people leaving Earth on space ships. There is a large swarm of them headed somewhere, but as they go they blow up until only one of them is left. This one barely makes it by landing on a nearby planet – a “sucker”, they call it, because gravity pulled them in.

      The scene switches to the inside of the space craft. There are a couple of guys in there who apparently stowed away. There is something wrong with the ship, and people are walking around spraying a white fog. The fog itself is difficult to breathe, but the air might be deadly. The stowaways now try to escape. They go down some steps. At some point I become one of them. We get to a sort of catwalk above a lower floor. I find a way to climb down some of the supports. Then I realize that this probably made me conspicuous, so I pretend that I’m just a normal guy who won a bet that I could climb down this way. I pretend to celebrate and say something like “all right! Where’s my five bucks?”

      This floor is like the lobby of a hotel. I start walking out the door. Then there is something about people being put in jail. I almost seem to be a cat now, and there is this plan to turn around and try to lead someone to the jail cells to rescue them. I/the cat is able to move one of the guard’s keys in such a way as to unlock the cell. But it’s the wrong cell. Inside this one is a huge vicious-looking animal. We close the door again and try another. But this is the wrong one too. We go to another cell, which has a label on it saying it contains, among other things, a donkey. We open the door to this one, and it is a scene from the old Droopy cartoon. The next cell has two of the three stooges and a couple of monkeys. We start talking with them, and the “cell” turns into a sort of stand-alone device almost like a gumball machine.

      I need to go somewhere. Someone tries to give me directions, but they are a little complicated so I try to write them down. I have a bit of trouble trying to figure out what they are telling me. Something about going down one road, and taking another road. I study a map. Then I find myself walking, trying to find my way to where I am going. I don’t even think I know where I’m going in the dream.

      Fragment 1

      Something about pastries.

      Fragment 2

      Professor Plum, and the characters from Clue. There is either a play or a film version, but it doesn’t seem like the characters are acting like they should. Professor Plum isn’t absent-minded (as he was in the books, if anyone has ever read those).

      April 3rd, 2024

      Fragment 1: Munster Music

      Someone is looking for suggestions for music that has an atmosphere like the Munsters. Someone else suggests Los Straightjackets, and I suggest the Ventures. Actually, I think it might have been the Munsters looking for music, or someone trying to find music that the Munsters would like. I think that Los Straightjackets might have been on the scene too late.

      Fragment 2:

      Something about the bathroom in a house I lived in when I was little. Some kind of play being rehearsed. Something about my Dad.

      April 2nd, 2024

      Dream 1: Granny and Gators

      My grandmother and I are in a kayak, paddling along a sort of a creek/flooded road. There are alligators in the creek, and one of them swims to our kayak, and sort of crawls over it and/or swims under it in such a way as to push us off course a little bit. We keep paddling and try to correct course, and by now our paddle is actually another alligator. We reach the end of the narrow channel, and are in a wider flooded street-type area. It seems that I am checking out a potential job in this area, and think about what it might be like to paddle to work in alligator-infested water every day.

      The perfect world-_5b1604b4-871d-4ccf-8d72-499f5b279f4b.jpg

      Dream 2: Driving

      I need to drive somewhere. The road in front of my driveway is blocked with construction, but they have left open lanes where you can drive. I make my way out of the construction area, and find a place to park. When I get out of my vehicle, I find that the construction has been on the nearby presidential memorial. The workers have either moved the body of the president, or done something with his grave. I have parked awkwardly close to it, and I’m a bit worried at first that I might have parked on top of it...

      ...Going down some roads, and past a store. It is place I seem to remember (possibly visited it in a previous dream). Looking in the windows, I see a lot of candy. Apparently, this is how it used to be. This store is kind of under another building, near an intersection with another road where you make a right turn to go wherever I was going.

      Dream 3 (?): Party Time

      (Possibly an extension of the dream above, but I’m not sure). There is a party going on. I’m in a room with a couple of other people, and we apparently stay up all night goofing off. There seems to have been alcohol involved too, because I think I might be slightly intoxicated by the next morning. My mother and my brother (?) are in another room, and earlier in the morning I gather up some things and make my way out there wondering if I will appear obviously inebriated. I have been awake all night except for a few times that I went to sleep during the party, but my mother and brother have at least been able to get some sleep.

      There is another party going on. This takes place in a large exhibition hall sort of place, in which there is a kind of expo going on. In the middle of the building is a row of parties, rated for different ages starting at PG, going onto PG-13, and possibly higher. There are some kids going to the PG party, and someone says something about how their parents told them they could go to this one but not one with a more “adult” rating. At the PG party, they have a long tub in the center in which people are pouring some kind of candy dust, like what’s in pixie straws or those candy dipping spoon things. Then someone comes along with a lot more candy, and fills a bowl next to this tub. Then my brother in law shows up, which causes some people to groan for some reason. He is carrying a bunch of things – toys, and maybe more candy.

      The event is going to begin. I’m walking around with one of my colleagues, and it turns out that the graduate students were supposed to be assigned to specific locations around the room. I don’t remember having been assigned anything, and we have a discussion about some guy who was supposed to send me an email. I walk around the room about two more times looking to see if my name is at any of the stations, but eventually give up. I think I try to go find somewhere to sit.


      In waking life, a recent graduate left a note on a white board. In my dream, it was erased.

    9. Comp Night 3: Another lucid restroom, and some other things

      by , 04-01-2024 at 03:38 PM
      Fragment 1: Sinking Boat

      Something about a small boat – maybe a toy boat – that breaks through some ice and sinks into some water. I think I try to retrieve it.

      Fragment 2: Hillside and TV

      Walking up and down a hill. Something about television. Lilly Munster is there, on TV maybe. Also “my mom”, who doesn’t look like my Mom.

      Dream 1: Lab and Bathroom (Lucid)

      In the lab. Dr. B— (I think) and I talk about my progress. He wants us to cover our faces with masks, or at least with some kind of material. I go to “my room”, or maybe my office, to try to find a t-shirt I can use. There is something about finding Easter eggs, and looking inside of them but putting them back for the kids or something. Then there is some glassware (beakers and test tubes, etc.) that I want to break. Getting back to the lab, I accidentally swallow what was in one of the test tubes. People are running tests, and I feel like I am falling behind.

      hel me out-_1d726744-7083-48f4-b0fa-85222f45a0af.jpg

      I go into a bathroom. It is very large, and extends for quite a distance. I wonder if the other end is the women’s section. This reminds me of a recurring dream. I try counting my fingers, and have trouble. I try again a time or two, and maybe do a nose pinch RC, eventually realizing that this must be a dream. I levitate up into a corner next to a window, and then come back down. My lucidity is either a little low here, or I lose it and start dreaming that I’m lucid without really being lucid. Anyway, it seems to me that I still think I need to get back to the lab. But I want to try flying back. There is something about not wanting to try it and failing while some people are watching...

      Somewhere there was something else about a small bathroom, and wanting to use it while making the people around (some sort of office suite or something) think that I’m one of them. It is very small, and the door doesn’t close all the way.

    10. Final Three Nights of Competition

      by , 01-22-2024 at 04:06 AM
      January 19th, 2024

      I took notes on the 19th but didn’t finish writing up the dreams until now. Some details might be missing.

      Fragment 1: Northward Bound

      Driving over a bridge. The bridge leads to a northern Alaska city. There is something to the right on the other side of the bridge – a business or road or something. There was some detail here I don’t quite remember. Anyway, I look at a map of the area, looking at somewhere to the north. I think I was looking at some islands, possibly looking for ones that didn’t have any towns on them.

      Fragment 2: Airport Trouble

      In an airport. I go somewhere, and leave my bag and a cane behind me. The bag gets confiscated (since I left it alone in the airport). I try to get it back. Also, my grandmother’s bag may have been confiscated as well and I try to get her’s back.

      Dream 1: Gunpowder Plot

      People have several bags of gunpowder. They stack them on top of something and set them on fire. Only about 4 of them detonate. Someone has put one of the bags of gunpowder on a bag of dog food. There is a man who really likes dogs, and will do a lot to save them. He runs out to rescue the bag of dog food and is killed in the explosion. This makes the guy who put the gunpowder bag there “almost guilty of murder”, according to my notes. The guy who placed the gunpowder flees “north, I think”. (I think this dream was inspired by an episode of Attack on Titan that I had recently seen, in which gunpowder was used as explosives).

      Fragment 3: Stained Glass and Experiments

      Actually, I don’t remember much of this one. All my written notes say is “stained glass etc. Experiments”.

      Fragment 4: Big Storm

      We are in some place – a village out in the countryside or something. Anyway, there is a big storm – a hurricane, it seems. Where we are now is in the eye of the storm, and there are storm clouds all around. There are tornadoes inside the storm clouds as well.

      If Bush wins I'll *BLEEP* myself :P-_28e9181d-81c1-49ca-8b4d-95d6179551fa.jpg

      Fragment 5: Sidewalk Painting

      I, and someone else, I think, are painting on the sidewalk. We seem to be drizzling a red paint around (or maybe it’s sidewalk chalk?). There is a dog that comes wandering along, and might walk through the paint. This is ok though, apparently that’s supposed to happen to spread the color around.

      Dream 2: Metal Mystery

      There is some kind of a mystery involving a piece of metal that is attached to a small chain. The chain is around my waist, sort of like a pocket watch. Something has been snatched off of this meta – possibly it was a pocket watch that someone took. I seem to be lying on a bed. My grandfather might be there too...In a bathroom, there is a big sign above a mirror. I need to throw rocks at this – actually I have to hit it with just one rock. It’s a bit of a gamble, but the sign is pretty big so it should be fairly easy to hit.

      (Not sure if this was the same dream, but I’ll put it here). A guy (me?) is following someone. He goes down a sort of chute/slide. The slide goes down into a dip, and then comes back up again. It seems like he didn’t have enough momentum to get out of the dip, or something. He gets stuck down there, but is rescued by some people from Star Trek (“Kirk, etc.”, according to my notes). They go and hang out at a café or bar. In my notes it says ‘“who is prepared for”?’, in quotes like that followed by the question mark. I think someone was saying this to the people in the café/bar.

      (Also not sure if this is the same dream.) We are somewhere (the café/bar?). It is time to leave. I think about using the restroom first, but the only toilet is situated at the bottom of a set of stairs and is difficult to use. I decide to wait until we get to the restaurant where we are supposed to be going. I think we might be getting a pizza there. But in the end we don’t go to the restaurant, we just decide to eat the food we have at home. This kind of disappoints me, I think.

      Fragment 6: Dad’s House

      In this dream, my father owns a house that we used to live in while I was growing up. He has done some fancy remodeling to the place, including the use of metal nails. I wonder if they are copper nails, but they seem to be some kind of alloy. [My notes say: “what about” kids – the ‘what about’ being in quotes like that.] I think someone asked him how he justified spending all that money to fix up a house that he could be using for his “kids”. He says that he plans to move up here with the kids.

      January 20th, 2024

      Dream 1: Mansion

      In an old house. I go upstairs, and it is a rather beautiful mansion. There seems to be a lot of antique furniture and old belongings up there, as though someone left it many years ago and never returned. In the process of looking around, I accidentally bump a piece of the furniture next to me and a small shelf falls off. In trying to put it back on, a shoe falls off, and then some clothes. I try to put the clothes back on a hanger, but have trouble. I also have trouble putting the drawer back together and stacking things the way they were originally. I think about whether I should tell the homeowners what I did, or just let it go and hope they don’t notice.

      If Bush wins I'll *BLEEP* myself :P-_792f6f41-e658-4df5-8154-58cf28b0ba23.jpg

      Fragment 1: Crossing a Bridge

      Crossing over a bridge that I seem to have dreamed about a couple of nights ago. I’m trying to take a bicycle over it, and am walking the bike. Another guy comes along and pushes past me, which I think is a little rude, but he seems to work there so I guess it’s OK. He then asks me if I can see what condition the restroom downstairs is. (Interesting note – this dream had reminded me of a similar dream I had earlier, but I couldn’t remember what it was until just now when I was typing up my notes from the 19th. It feels as though this was the same bridge as the one from the northern Alaska dream from that night).

      Fragment 2: Friends and Neighbors

      Driving or riding somewhere. We come across a couple of women from our church. I haven’t seen them for a while. Now I’m at a neighbor’s house. There is a football game, or something, going on. Some kind of a tradition where people kick something or at least raise one of their legs, and we are wondering which leg it will be.

      January 21st, 2024

      Fragment 1: Football Election

      There is a football game going on. It might be the Super Bowl. I, and the people watching with me, are hoping that one team wins. Somehow the game is related to something like nursing jobs – if the other team wins we think it will hurt the nursing industry somehow. I keep getting it mixed up in my mind whether this is a football game or an election. I ask how much time is left in the game. It’s in the third quarter now.

      If Bush wins I'll *BLEEP* myself :P-_4599f0ce-b220-4538-adf3-74692e7f4721.jpg

      Fragment 2: Foam on the Window

      There is some sort of packing foam on the window next to my couch.
    11. Winter Competition Night 11: Strange Lands, Intrigue, and more

      by , 01-19-2024 at 01:42 AM
      Dream 1: Strange Lands, Banquet, Beach, and Mink

      I am somewhere where there is deep water. People are diving down into it. Someone is talking with me, and wondering if I want to dive down in there too. I look down, and see big fish. The more I look, the bigger fish I see. There is one about the size of a shark (maybe it is a shark) and then something that looks like a huge shark (possibly basking shark size, maybe even megalodon size). Anyway, I don’t think I really want to dive down in there with those huge fish. But I do wonder if I should, because it is kind of unexplored territory.

      Then I turn around and travel back the way I came – or try to. In this land, it’s easy to get lost – somehow like an outdoors Backrooms. There are dangerous people there. I find a gun – a rifle or a shotgun. I carry this with me, for protection, I guess. I make it to a customs place, where people are being “checked in”. It’s like the boundary between this land and back to “normal” space. I try to get a passport, or to sneak in, or something. At this point, I feel as though I become some sort of a fugitive.

      There is banquet going on, with people from my former workplace, I think. They expect me to do something. There is some antagonism, as though I want to refuse to do it. I seem to be avoiding people. There are Christmas cards being given out. Someone has a stack for me that they collected while I wasn’t there. There is also a bunch of food. Something about weighing myself or being weighed on a scale.

      There is a beach. This might be near the banquet place. I go outside, and find myself driving around and trying to find a place to park, I think. It becomes difficult, as there are people in the way.

      At some point, I’m walking along the road, looking for a mink stole made from four whole minks. I think I see one and go to pick it up, but it turns out to just be a dead animal.

      Who's from England...I need some guy tips-_5a2779c9-6ae2-4727-9b6c-bda30c400ad8.jpg

      Fragment 1: Break my Stride

      I’m somewhere. Indoors, I think. The song “Break my Stride” is playing. I stop when I recognize the tune, because it’s one of my unofficial Dreamviews Competition theme songs. I think I do a reality check, but I don’t recall what happens after that.
    12. Comp Night 10: Finally, some lucidity!

      by , 01-17-2024 at 10:17 PM
      Bedtime about 10:30-11:00. WBTB around 2:30 (bathroom, scripture reading, about 20 minutes).

      Fragment 1: Bus

      On a bus. It starts out as something from Lurkers.io, where I need to get to a specific place. This involved finding my way out of a space that I’m currently in and finding a path there. Once I get there, I’m supposed to make a radio broadcast or something. My brother seems to be in charge...

      Dream 1: Murder Mystery

      Someone has been murdered. It is a woman – an actress apparently, or some sort of entertainer. She has been killed in the upstairs of some place. I go up to investigate. I begin looking around to see if there are any weapons or things that might be used as weapons handy. It turns out that there are a bunch of knives. It seems that someone threw a knife and killed this woman. I try to get more information. I talk to someone whose native language is Swahili, and am having trouble getting her to tell me if the body was found with the head toward the kitchen area or if it was lying the opposite direction. There is some trouble communicating. Finally, I figure out that it wasn’t lying either way, but had fallen down through the floor so that the head was sticking up through the floor and the rest of the body was dangling down from the ceiling of the floor below.

      I go downstairs. Family and friends are coming in for a sort of funeral/memorial. I start talking to people, trying to gather evidence. I introduce myself to several different people, and eventually zero in on a lady who is a “property manager” for the family. I don’t really know what a property manager does, but I figure it might give her a motive to commit the crime. Also, she’s cute. She has an animal with her on a leash. I can’t figure out if it’s a Canada goose or a dog. I decide that it’s a goose, because it has webbed feet. I say to her “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a goose on a leash before.” She looks at me with a patient smile and says “It’s a dog”. That’s a little embarrassing. But I keep talking to her, and try to explain that I’m tired, or something. Still the dog does look kind of like a goose, and it’s fur seems to be more like feathers.

      We go somewhere. My memory here is a little vague, but it seems to involve some girls on a couch. Something with slime in a tub.

      (Not sure if this is part of the above dream or not). My brother is talking to someone. This person becomes violent, and starts hitting him. I decide to intervene, and try punching the guy. He seems to be really quick though, and dodges my punches. He and my brother start fighting. I grab a bottle of wine or something, and try to hit this guy on the head. I think I eventually succeed.

      Dream 2: Dad at Conference (Lucid)

      Looking for a bathroom. I’m walking with my Mom, or someone. They go into a women’s bathroom. I try to keep going, but there is something with the doors and the hallway all leading into the women’s room. I go to a different area, looking for the men’s room. This turns out to be the wrong area, but I see a sign pointing to “restrooms” so I figure that might help. I follow the sign.

      Now I’m in a conference (possibly the same dream, but I’m not sure). There are a lot of people here, and a man walks by that looks like my Dad. It doesn’t make sense that my Dad would be there, but who knows? I decide to do a reality check though. I try counting my fingers, and find that I have trouble doing so. I try multiple times, and keep having trouble. I become lucid! Remembering a goal that I have had, I find my “Dad” again and ask him what his story is. I don’t remember getting much of a coherent answer though.

      Hmm...is this even possible???-_a90a9b99-7283-4d0c-b47a-3837682f8c90.jpg

      Woke up around 6:30 and took some notes on my phone. Have had trouble getting back to sleep (not an intentional WBTB). It’s now 7:12. I had some milk and donuts.

      Fell asleep not too long after the above note. Had the following dreams:

      Dream 3: Trying the “Merging” Technique (Lucid)

      I find myself awake on the couch. My friend D- is sitting next to me. I look over at his laptop, and see that he is getting on Dreamviews and checking out the competition thread. Then he starts watching Attack on Titan, and I figure it’s because of the competition. I go outside.

      (Maybe part of the same dream, but I’m not sure). Outside, I try counting my fingers. I have trouble doing this, even with multiple tries. So, I think I try a nose pinch. I can still breathe. I become lucid. The dream seems to shift to my Grandparents’ old house, and I try flying. I jump off of a step and hover a bit, but I have a bit of trouble flying. Then I decide to try my goal of summoning a character and taking over his body. I try summoning the TV detective Monk, with whom I used to identify and with whom this trick used to work. I try calling for Monk several times, and then decide to tell myself that when I go around the next corner I’ll see him. I look around the corner, but I don’t see him. I think I might try to pretend he’s there anyway, and do the “merging” thing.

      Dream 4: Late Night Class and Movies

      (The following might have been part of the same dream, or might have been separate fragments. I’ll count them as one, since the point difference won’t be much either way).

      Waking up. My mother suggests a shirt for me to wear. I go outside, I think. I have a late class (about 10:00pm), so even though I seem to have slept through a lot of the day it doesn’t worry me too much. I’ll be up pretty late. Some friends are going to watch something on TV around 2:00am. I think about joining them after my class.

      Some people want to go watch some horror movies. They have some reason for doing this, I forget exactly why. There is a horror movie marathon at a movie theater. It seems to be classics, like the Mummy, etc. Most of the people going to the movie are dressed in what seems to me to be stereotypical horror movie costumes from around the 1940s. This includes people dressed in Middle Eastern/South Asia garb, and/or British Colonial uniforms (not sure why these were stereotypical horror garb to me).

      Fragment 2: Two Dads

      My Dad is at home. Another guy comes along, who is apparently my new Dad coming home from work. My old Dad is relaxing in the recliner when the new Dad shows up. They seem to be on good terms, and shake hands.

      Dream 5: Visiting M-

      I have some spare time, and decide to fly to Africa to visit my friend. We look around her house and yard, and I ask how much of the property she owns. She explains that she used to own more, but it was sold. Also, her brother used to live in the house in front of her, but had to sell his house. So, the family used to have a nice chunk of land all together, but now she just has this smaller plot. Walking around out back, it is very soggy ground. I’m thinking she could have a garden, and then I think maybe asparagus would grow in this marshy area. My friend comes out of the house with a planter, and sets it by the door. Then I see that she has a decent sized raised bed in the back.

      Dream 6: Lord of the Rings

      My friend D-, I think, suggesting that we watch something more appropriate than something else we had been watching. I’m not sure if he means Attack on Titan. Anyway, I start watching the Lord of the Rings (a cartoon version, apparently). “Waking up” in the morning, I try to finish watching it before getting started for the day. I’m watching it on a television up above the kitchen sink, and when my Mom comes along I think about stopping it but I’m too lazy to reach up to the TV or to try and find the remote control. Someone talks about how the Lord of the Rings is like grad school, or like research. In other words, it takes a long time and a lot of work to make even small progress.

      Dream 7: Girl and Signs

      There is a girl sitting next to me. There seems to have been some conversation about her size. There is also something about signage. Some kind of clever sign that warns about nudity, or something. I think it’s a pretty nice sign, so I try to make my own, expanding on the theme of the sign. I put this up along a road, but when I look at it, it doesn’t look as nice as I thought. Also, I have put it on other people’s property without asking them. I decide to take the signs down (which involve shooting them with lasers or something). I drive down the road “taking down” the signs. One of them is a little harder to reach, and I pull into a parking lot to try to turn around and get a better try at it. I spend some time circling around the parking lot, and then try to pull back out onto the road. There is a guy sitting there, kind of blocking my view of oncoming traffic.

      Fragment 3: Watering Plants

      Watering the plants in my house. Someone else might be there with me.

      Fragment 4: Guy with Orange Stuff Coming Out of His Eye

      “You beast!” the man yelled. I don’t know exactly who he was yelling at or why. He might have been yelling at me. I think I was criticizing or lecturing him for something, maybe trying make him feel guilty. Anyway, at some point I roll him over, and some orange stuff oozes out of his eye. I collect some of this on my finger, either to show him or to show someone else. This horrifies that person. The orange stuff, apparently, is some liquid form of someone’s rage.
    13. Comp Night 9: Hotel Stuff and More

      by , 01-17-2024 at 03:16 AM
      Dream 1: Hotel Stuff – is this a dream?

      There is a guy who, I think, says that we are in a dream. I feel as though he has been spreading this around, and now people want him to prove it by jumping off of a building. By now he isn’t so sure though. But a crowd of people have gathered around, and he seems to be trapped into doing it. I suggest that he escape. He could duck into a nearby elevator and go to a different floor, where it would be difficult to find him. But he wants to go through with it. We try in vain to convince him otherwise, and I think he eventually jumps. I either fall off or jump off too. I think that I start wondering if it really is a dream. Anyway, it doesn’t seem to hurt me.

      In a big hotel. I’m trying to go back to my room – I’m also naked. I’m carrying a big towel, which I wrap around me as I go. I walk down a corridor and find myself in an area that looks like a place I have dreamed about before. I think I might do a kind of half-hearted reality check, but don’t become lucid. As I go, I see that some rooms have bathtubs out in the hallways. They are in a sort of cubby area, I guess, and a curtain or a sliding door can be drawn in front of them. Still, it seems like an odd lack of privacy to me. I walk into a sort of open place, kind of like the main walking area of a mall, and in front of me is a nice-looking carpeted staircase such as you might find in a fancy Victorian era hotel. To my right, a woman is demonstrating some sort of gadget.

      Something about a news crew filming. People are dressed up in “holographic” Halloween costumes. These costumes are invisible unless you look at them with a specific lens.

      Fragment 1: Lecture

      Someone is giving a lecture. A couple of my friends are thinking of going to it, but it starts before long and is a fairly long drive away, and I don’t know if we can make it in time. The talk seems like it would be interesting though – possibly related to lucid dreaming somehow.

      Fragment 2: Scrooge

      Something about Ebenezer Scrooge. The fire in the office is cold, and Cratchit wants to put more coal on it. Scrooge secretly realizes that it’s cold, but he has fallen on hard times and doesn’t want to admit it. So he pretends to be harsh about the coal.

      Fragment 3: Train Crossing

      Driving along a road. I’m coming to a train crossing, and a train is approaching. I think I might have an idea about to the crossing, but then decide that is too risky. In fact, the train is pretty close to the crossing. It crosses, but some other guy drives up and decides to cross anyway. So, while the train is moving, he jumps his car/truck up and over some flat train cars, driving on them as though they were some sort of ramp.

      Dream 1: Scenes in a Building

      These might have been different dreams, but I’m not sure. If so, they would be fragments on their own so the point difference wouldn’t be much.

      In a building somewhere. A bunch of people have been given toy guns (that shoot real bullets). They are playing with these. Some kind of target shooting, I think. I’m a bit concerned about it – these might be a bunch of kids or something.

      In a building (maybe the same building. Maybe a University). There is someone that doesn’t like me. Something about me going away from that person, farther and farther as I flick my finger. I walk down a short set of steps, and look at doors trying to find a way out. I make my way into a sort of formal garden area. My brother is sitting at a table nearby talking about something (possibly about me). Not wanting to interrupt, or maybe not wanting to be seen, I walk into a sort of enclosed area where there is a pool.

      There is food in this building (this part seems to be a University). I get some food, I think. We also seem to be concerned about a homeless person/people who want to come in and take people’s food.

      Fragment 1: Bathrooms

      Something about bathrooms. Trying to find the men’s room, I think...

      Fragment 2: Matrix Avocado

      Eating a strange food. It is like some alien’s tentacles, in my dream it is like something from the movie Alien or Predator (one of the two, and I’m not exactly sure how). I look at the label, and it says its something like “Matrix Avocados”. It seems to be a relative of avocado, at any rate. The “Matrix” part is either a reference to the movie, or reminds me of the movie. I make the joke: “but how am I supposed to eat this Matrix Avocado if there is no spoon?”

      Dream 1: Dream Theme (yay!) and Apples

      Watching Attack on Titan. In this episode, the humans have some kind of hover cars that look like space ships...Then there are some people driving up in a kind of lunar rover (military police?). Something about how where we are may be more exciting, but they get to travel across the planet (or moon)...Someone (Annie, from AoT?) is handing out shirts. She gets a pink one and a green one mixed up, from which I gather that she is colorblind. This seems important to me, and I mention it to someone.

      My Dad and I are walking across some countryside (possibly the same dream). We are looking for a place that also has an apple orchard. He leads us off to the right, and I guess that it’s because he saw a couple of apple trees and gathered that they spread from the place we are looking for. Along the way, I pick an apple and munch on it. We come to a road, and some sort of sign. There is another tree nearby, and I pick another apple. This apple is full of holes though, as though a bunch of ants had gotten into it.

      Fragment 1: Not Really Typing

      Someone is in an office. There are two other people there, but one of them is apparently busy typing on a typewriter. But this is just a ruse, and the person is not really typing other than just nonsense. Someone inspects the paper on which they were typing, and there are bunch of words but also a lot of blank space. This ends up in the lab somehow, I think.

      Fragment 2: Drug Store

      In a drug store. There is some machine there that you interact with to buy stamps, or something. There is something about me not wanting to buy things from CVS because they sell abortion pills.

      Fragment 3: Garden

      My Mom and I are in a long, narrow garden. It is about two rows wide. She is planting things on one row, and I am planting things in the other row. The row I am in seems to be lower than my mother’s garden row. It also drops down a foot or two toward the end.
