    Non-Lucid Dreams

    1. Movie dream fragment

      by , 01-22-2014 at 12:46 PM
      This dream was like a movie. I just remember one scene. A bunch of shady character sitting at a table in a restaurant get one of them to play along into honoring those who come in by standing up. Then a cop comes in, and the guy stands up before he notices, and then freezes in shock. His buddies are laughing hard thinking he froze because he accidentally honored a cop, but then it turns out he froze because he recognized him as a former buddy. He then thinks that the explanation must be that he is disguised as a cop, but no the cop explains he actually had to become a cop because he could not have gotten here otherwise. I think he means either to this planet, or this dimension, or parallel universe, anyway something monumental like that.
      That's all I remember.

    2. Work, demand, spy, and forging visas

      by , 01-02-2014 at 11:51 AM
      Some work study we did which involved some statistics by gender was very popular / in demand, and my boss was asking me to send edited versions of it to people, edited to not include some more secret stuff. Also had to establish which password to use: not our usual one, so they could not access other stuff, and did I accidentally give them my personal password.

      We were doing business with some shady character who may have been a spy, meeting in some kind of basement. My boss suggested we may have future common business opportunities, something about creating visas for crossing borders, and I questioned whether those would be official visas and whether this was legal.

      Also as part of this dream my boss was not my current boss but a previous female boss. I kept editing an article for her as well, fixing the formatting of the print version.
    3. My potty trained horse

      by , 01-01-2014 at 10:20 PM
      In this dream I was visiting some fancy rich family and I had my horse with me. I assured them that my horse was potty trained, and enquired whether their stable was equipped with a potty that a horse could use. I had the impression that I wanted to out compete them on the fancier than though front.

    4. Orchid parasitic vines and pest bugs

      by , 12-26-2013 at 01:25 PM
      Background info: I used to be so addicted to orchids as a hobby that I acquired too many. Once my interest in the hobby waned, I was left with too many plants, a maintenance burden, and yet a reluctance to let go. My mother gave me another orchid for Christmas and a dear friend also gave me another orchid. So now I have too many plus two new ones.

      In my dream I discovered that one of the new orchid plants had vines growing around it that I had not noticed before. The vines were choking it, and then I noticed that they were also embedded inside the orchid plant, so a parasite that could not be removed and would kill the plant. In addition I discovered that there were ugly disgusting white bugs in the box of the orchid. the orchids do not have such boxes in reality, but in the dream there was a cardboard box / case around the orchid plant, and when one pried open the cardboard box, there were those disgusting bugs, and I just knew they would eat the orchids, and then I saw they were everywhere in all my orchids, had spread from the new ones. I would loose all my orchids because of one of the new ones.

      I remember when I woke up there was also a memory of another dream, but now it is gone.
    5. Quarantine, flat tires, emergency room

      by , 12-18-2013 at 12:11 PM
      I was in my car and leaving a town which I belatedly realized was under quarantine, and I should not have left. I do not know whether due to this, but my car suddenly got flat tires. I decided to turn around and return to this town I had left. First I tried driving on flat tires, but when that did not work well, I started propelling my car with my feet sticking out the bottom. I was also not feeling well. When I reached the town, I got informed that the emergency room was too busy. I asked if it would make a difference if I walked into emergency room, and they said it was worth a try. There was no mention of fixing the car's tires - unless that was what I expected from the emergency room?
    6. Shirt-Pants, Wild Boar Attack

      by , 12-17-2013 at 12:14 PM
      Went to bed close to 11pm
      Woke up before 5am and failed to fall back asleep

      Dream 1: Shirt-Pants to Church and Polish

      My older son felt like wearing a shirt on his legs instead of pants to go to church, and I let him! Hoped that it was not too obvious. The shirt seemed to be more of a girl's blouse with puffy sleeves, which he had put his legs through. Even though we were in an English speaking country, in my dream my sons spoke only Polish, and they were older than they are now. As one of them was heading into church on his own, a man addressed him in English, my son responded in Polish, the man switched to Polish, and he asked my son something, and my son responded, and I was proud to find out he responded correctly. (In waking life my sons do not speak Polish, or rather just a few words.)

      Dream 2: Wild Boar (Rhino) Attack in the Garden

      I was going to grow vegetables and fruit in a garden to sell to make additional money, and another woman was teaching me how to plant them. Suddenly a wild boar ran out of the bushes and charged me (the other woman was not in sight at this moment). The boar had a horn more like a rhino though, a boar sized rhino? I managed to hold it in a way so that I was pushing it away with all my strength, but it did gorge my belly somewhat and bit me there too. As I was being gorged, I cried out for help "Mama!" And then I woke up!
    7. Pet goat? Saving the pet fish

      by , 12-12-2013 at 10:13 AM
      DC woman: You won't believe what pet we got our daughter?

      She was going to say a goat - I just knew it, but she did not get to say it because someone else guessed "A fish?"

      "No, how could it be a fish? We keep it in our front yard. Actually we did have a fish, but it was sad, it was a matter of time: when we got it, we kept it in our front yard in warm weather, and all was well, but then it got cold, and the fish died. My daughter was devastated?"

      I suggested "Why not move the fish inside for the winter?"

      DC woman was shocked, hadn't thought of it before. All of a sudden the fish was not dead after all, and DC woman was able to move it inside for the winter based on my recommendation.

      There was no more mention of getting a goat as a pet. I assume no longer needed since fish survived.
    8. Father in Law Visit with Dresser

      by , 12-11-2013 at 11:46 AM
      We were visiting my father in law, and strangely we had brought a dresser with us. The dresser had a mirror attached to the top of it. When we came back from an outing, we discovered that the dresser no longer had the mirror attached to it. My father in law had been alone with the dresser, but he did not admit to breaking it, and we decided it would be impolite of us to mention it. However, much later my father in law did admit to breaking it and also admitted that he did not admit to it before because he could not afford to pay to get it fixed - in this dream the idea was that this would be expensive to fix.
    9. Buffet Trouble

      by , 12-10-2013 at 01:03 PM
      When we first arrived it seemed like perhaps a train compartment, and there was not enough room, so we found a bench and a half or so with grumpy neighbors. Did not have kids with us, and frankly I do not even recall who was with me, just seemed like a group of people and a whole bunch of stuff.

      I was hungry, and there seemed to be lots of buffet tables with many kinds of food. Part of the challenge was that my arms were already full of my stuff. Another issue was that I could not find a plate for the longest amount of time. The buffet was almost over and they had run out of clean plates. They only had huge unwieldy serving plates and tiny elongated appetizer plates. I took an appetizer plate thinking I could carry it easier and could do more than one trip.

      Somewhere in this dream there was a woman worried about getting back to her daughter. She had left the kid at a library in the care of a librarian and had paid $1,000 for baby sitting. I had a vision of a whole bunch of kids overwhelming a helpless librarian who could not control the roudy bunch.

      Back at the buffet, I put some food on my tiny plate, but then the stuff I was carrying shifted in my arms and I lost my plate and it fell to the ground and all the food got off the plate. At that moment the staff started clearing the buffet food except for deserts.

      That's when I had a mental breakdown. Sobbing I explained I was hungry, had arrived late, the lack of adequate plates, and my wanting food other than desert. A manager or several started helping me and got together a bigger plate filled with food.

      Then they wanted to know where my table was, and I explained that I was just sharing that bench, and there seemed to be no way to really eat there. So they found me a table.

      The end of the dream, I do not know whether all if it happened while I was asleep or whether I continued the story daydreaming after mostly waking up.
    10. Moving out of state and issues with my mother

      by , 12-08-2013 at 11:53 AM
      I was talking with my mother in person about our move out of state (in dream only), about how I don't know whether we would get jobs right away, but that costs were heaped there.

      At some point my mother wanted to know why my phone number was not listed (also not real). It seemed she thought it was because I wanted to be unhelpful, and I said that it was because of my work secrets.

      At another point in the conversation my mom also attacked the fact that we have so many board games.
    11. Lay offs and take over attempt

      by , 12-07-2013 at 01:04 PM
      I dreamed that due to budget cuts two people I deal with the most at another organization were to be laid off. I asked in vain for the name of the guy who was calling on the phone to announce this, so I had to hand the phone to my boss before finding out who was calling. After the call my boss was surprised to hear that I actually work with these guys every day because he only occasionally does. Then I suggested whether we could hire them, but no budget. I had been a bit worried that if hired I would be demoted because they are more qualified than me, but I thought it would be in best interest of our project. Thus I was both disappointed and relieved by the lack of budget. I already thought this was a lost cause when I heard that one of them was challenging the CEO or director or whatever her title was for the control of the entire organization now. Informally I wished him well, though I did not not whether he was qualitified for that position, formally our organization had to appear impartial because we would have to work with whoever won the conflict.

    12. Racing

      by , 11-26-2013 at 11:39 AM
      Dream fragment: I remember racing around an unfamiliar office and I was kind of sliding on air at high speed past some coworkers, but at one point I seemed to loose momentum in front of someone near a piano. I also remember something about going around the world, but that was more cartoony, like in a Wii game I have called Exerbeat, where going around the world is used to track one's progress. Some women said that they did not know one could go only partially around the world and did not need to do it all at once.

    13. Jerkish?

      by , 11-24-2013 at 10:57 PM
      Ok, in this dream both me and my husband were totally out of character.

      During nap I dreamed we had expected our house keeper to just come pick something up or drop something off, and instead we came home to a half cleaned house.

      We said she could not stay and finish and that I would may her for the work done.

      Then my husband and I had a fight over how much to pay her. I suggested a price about half as much as usual (since it was half the work). At first I did not understand what my husband was saying, and it sounded like it was 10 times as much, but then he said, the other way around, ten times less. I said something like that is below the minimum wage, and seriously for three hours of work (she had not been there three hours but in my dream at this point I said she had). Then I said that my husband was being kind of "jerkish", not appreciating her work - and that's totally out of character in waking life. So then I suggested, why don't we suggest that she stay and finish the work around us, and my husband and the kids need to go somewhere soon anyway.

      I also remember remembering something else earlier from a separate dream, but forgot.
    14. My squirreling (cleptonania?) issue

      by , 11-21-2013 at 12:11 PM
      I dreamed that I had all kinds of mental issues, but I was not really disturbed by that in the dream. The worst was my habit to squirrel things away into my various hiding places: dens in the wall, hidden compartments in furniture. My parents (who in this dream were still together) got me to a therapist, and I admitted to the therapist and my parents where my largest hiding place was with the most stuff, but I admitted that of course it was not the only one: there were others hidden away throughout the house with more stuff. I seemed almost proud of that. In this dream I don't know what age I was, but I think I was a teenager, or at least my maturity level was not that of a grown up - and frankly not even of a teen, but I had mental issues. The house we lived in was not like any house I have lived in in waking life.
    15. Fragment: daycare price sensitivity

      by , 11-17-2013 at 08:55 PM
      During nap dreamed that we were going to drop our boys at our former daycare provider's who is still a close family friend and also babysits our kids at times.

      As we were coming to drop kids off, we met up with another father who was coming to drop off his kids, except he needed to establish the price first because he doubted whether he could afford as many hours as he needed.

      I remember that even though it was clearly our daycare provider, but in the dream her home was different and she lived upstairs, but I did not notice this.

      I woke up confused thinking it was morning not remembering this has been an afternoon nap.
