    12 am S
    3 am W drank a strong peppermint tea (three tea bags). back to bed at 330. didn't actually get back to sleep for a while after that
    4-430 am S had to be closer to 4 considering all the dreams.
    5 am W - nightmare, wrote everything down and went back to sleep an hour later
    6 am S
    9 am W - final

    Had gone to my grandmothers house when she wasn't there ((nothing like their RL house)). I cleaned up some stuff on a counter and when they got home told them I had. 'thats nice dear'. There was someone there they didn't like.
    My grandparents were no longer around and the house was a little different. K and B were behind a bar and in a kitchen. Me, L, and random guy were in the living room. ...sexins ensue... i'm invited to play with K and B and go around to do so. i cant seem to kiss K right - something just keeps feeling 'off'.
    I'm in some sort of apartment. The guy 'next to' us (it was kind of embedded in our apartment and connected to another apartment network as well (used shadow memory of a previous dream to briefly touch on what that network looked like - I was never there in the dream)). had just installed an awesome AC system. The controls were in our apartment though. Apparently they had to wire it that way because of the buildings design. They guy there came out and talked with me, my mate, and a friend of his. They all started talking about some game and/or the computer. At some point I was outside the apt along with the neighbor guy. One of my cats (oci) was there as well - he slinked back into the apt - clearly uncomfortable where he had been. i think i was smoking outside. while the guys were looking at a comp, I started focusing on a magazine. I got about 1/3 - 1/2 way in when it got to the main article. It was all on a movie that was coming out soon. It was filled with gory shot after gory shot - all stark whites and reds. It started with an image of a chick kinda grainy and turning her head - very reminiscent of the grudge. I told my mate that I wouldn't be able to see this movie - too disturbing. I keep flipping though and the article doesn't end - the rest of the magazine is nothing but those disturbing images. I close the magazine.

    Spoiler for Nightmare:

    ((this dream was really confusing to write - the location kept changing in my memory. i might have been mixing two different timelines))
    There was some sort of fungus being spread on all the pot crops - government conspiracy. Wanted to find and hide the little bit that I had, but the cops got there too soon. They weren't after pot though. Eventually it was just a large group of people being held in a smallish space At some point in the dream the space was larger - like two houses to either side, one above, and a common area in between. Some of the 'prisoners' were organizing a resistance. They met up above. There was a slip of paper with someones # hidden on it. I was trying to find it and somehow call them - they could end this captivity. They guys name was Travis or Tailor or some other T word - I don't think it was actually a name, but it slipped away quickly. A person's head was snapped in front of me by invisible hands - she knew too much and was going to spread that knowledge. A friend was getting pulled out of the captivity 'room'. She was special in some way - had money or friend in really high places. They said they were neither holding nor not holding her and moved her elsewhere (i'm assuming somewhere nicer).

    ((So, i'm thinking that the Peppermint tea Definitely had an effect on my dreams. Dont know if i will ever try that again though as the nightmare was extremely vivid and disturbing.))

    ((oh yeah, when i was writing in my DJ after waking up at 9, i realized i had tool's song parabola running through my head))

      Oh wow, I haven't had any experience with menthol nightmares. That does sound really unpleasant, especially when it's one of those where you wake up and don't get that sense of relief where you laugh it off as "ah great, that was all just a dream." The nasty ones that leave you feeling freaked out into waking life aren't too fun.

      For whatever reason, my menthol dreams are generally very lighthearted, with a pretty strong (but not universal) tendency toward the amorous. I did have one very gory one but it had a very clinical "CSI" sort of feel to it.

      Still feeling like you may steer clear of the peppermint tea for a while or are you still open to it? I hope you have more pleasant dreams if you give it another shot!

      yeah - after i woke up i tried to get out of bed to go around and turn the light on, but the darkness on the side of the bed might have held that chick...

      Will be trying it again, just wanted a few nights break. The difference in vividness is too much for me to just pass up. Thanks again for the well wishes
