    Mmm tokah gee-ummmsh DILDx2

    Total sleep time: 7 hrs

    Early dreamlet: A guy tells me that whenever cheese is involved he is also there?

    Dream1 DILD after WBTB: Me and bf are queuing to enquire about financial help. A DC woman is behind me and she disapproves of me being there. The scene transforms and we are on some kind of platform that is taking us someplace. I see a strange theme park that reminds me of the island Pinocchio went to. We arrive at the destination, the DC woman is still behind me, I feel her body press on me, so I decide to sit on the platform’s stone steps. I look where we have arrived. This is something like a prison that a sect has, and they keep girls with strange clothes there.

    I enter the place and it turns into an ordinary apartment. I look around and it feels familiar, as if I had been here before. In the first room I see a girl that is kept there and she is clearly sad about her fate. She is naked and I feel her silky skin, and then hug her to console her. She is very thin and I cannot tell her back from her front, it actually gets distorted but I think it is because she is skinny and I tell her that…I move on. There is no one in the apartment and that gives me a strange feeling. Soon I discover another room where a girl is kept. This time it is an extremely dangerous girl. I try to peek through the keyhole but there is some metal in it. Of course, the door to this dangerous girl is not locked, so she starts moving the door trying to escape, while I am trying to close the door. She is stronger than me so she manages to escape and I face her. She is outright scary, because she is a vampire. Some game-like status bar that looks like a play paper card is there. I understand that I won’t be able to fight her, so decide to flee.

    I leave the apartment as fast as I can, and as I get to the stairs I run into Brendan Hines, who I recognize in the dream as a friend of mine and not the actor. I tell him we should get out of there and glide/jump on the handrails as fast as I can. We leave the building and I am on the street lucid. My first thought is that I don’t need to run away any more, but just to be on the safe side, I decide to increase the distance between me and the vampire girl, so I fly forward a bit. I am very happy that this guy (Brendan) is here and have some strange memory that this is the second time I am dreaming him? I want to use him as a partner during the lucid.

    I remember 3 of the TOTM (although I decided yesterday to do only two this month), and have a great clarity of mind. This worries me because I feel that this is end of the REM and I am going to wake up soon, so I go to do the tasks. I approach Brendan, but he has transformed into some ugly older dude, who is being engaged by two other DCs on a bench. That irritates me and I try to get his attention, with little success. I notice a small puddle on the floor and decide to look at my image there. At the same time, while walking towards the puddle I consider if I should take my clothes off, and I stretch my T-shirt a bit. I think that not being able to see for a while will disconnect me from the dream, so I abandon the task and concentrate on my image in the water. I am pleasantly surprised to see that it is actually me there, looking quite nice, and smiling. Normal clothes and hair. It seems that I am talking as I am thinking this because as I do, I see the image’s mouth move exactly in accordance with my thoughts/words. I find this fascinating, but soon I feel my real lips moving and I am back in my bed.


    I am on my right side, eyes closed and decide to risk and go for a DEILD. I wait quite a while and nothing happens, I am quite awake so decide to go to the restroom and take some key notes. I then go back with the intention of falling asleep and having another lucid. (Yes, that greed!)

    As is usually the case with me, this doesn’t work too well, so I spend about 50 mins doing all kinds of stuff trying to fall asleep. I got very sceptical about having another ld towards the end of this insomnia chunk and began contemplating whether I should get up and do something more productive, but I finally fell asleep.

    Dreamlet: some plant leaves

    Dream2 DILD: I am in what initially looks like my parents place and there is a rat-like creature on the floor. It is white, and has no eyes, so a bit creepy. It later becomes three smaller creatures. There was some kind of story about these but it is hard to remember. We also own some creature in my mind a horse, but then a dog/creature steals our horse and runs down the building. This is my grandma’s place for a while. I chase the dog to get back whatever is ours, which turns into my new handbag from real life.

    This person/entity goes down some stairs which lead into the underworld. It is scary. The underworld entrance is a subway station, where the escalators don’t work, so there is no turning back. I consider checking whether the elevator works but enter in a restroom instead. There are two people making out there, I chase them away. I look in front of me, and become lucid.

    Once again my brain is working full power. There is a mirror just in front of me, so I take advantage of the opportunity and check my appearance. My hair is a bit darker and my image makes grimaces. I think that I don’t want to be stuck here too long to avoid waking up, so I leave the restroom. The station is still there, and I want to talk gibberish to a DC, so I turn to a DC guy and say the sentence “I am talking gibberish”, but muffle the sound so it becomes something like “Mmm tokah gee-ummmsh” and look for his reaction. He doesn’t seem to understand what I am saying and I am disappointed with his reaction, so I repeat it two more times. He shyly smiles and looks away. Ah, he’s shy, I conclude, satisfied with the result.

    Then I decide to go with the next task, get naked. I look around and proudly announce to the surrounding DCs “I am going to get naked!” and watch faces of dismay. I concentrate on taking my clothes off, but it seems I have two layers, one fitting really tight. As I struggle to take them off, the dream fades away
    and I am back in bed, left side this time.

      Wow!! Congratulations on Task of the Month. You always try to get all the Tasks of the Month in like one dream. And so early in the month... I'm very impressed!

      I then go back with the intention of falling asleep and having another lucid. (Yes, that greed!)
      Ha, I know all about "the greed". But as Gordon Gecko tells us, "Greed is good. Greed works."

      By sticking with the attempt to fall back asleep, what you actually wound up with was a super long WBTB. Greed pays off again!

      Do you have any idea what had your brain running at full power like that? That's the feeling I'm always going for but I feel a bit like I'm rolling the dice in terms of actually getting there. Sometimes my brain's ready to go and other times I'm a big dummy. Never quite know which brain I'll get.

      I look around and proudly announce to the surrounding DCs “I am going to get naked!” and watch faces of dismay
      LOL @ faces of dismay

      Congratulations on TOTM.

      I know when I last went naked (in a DILD) as part of a dare by two girl DC's 'to prove I was (in) a dream' then I had that thought at one point - 'What if its not?'
      Yes, I missed the TOTM (advanced) by a measily week.

      Thanks! While it turned out perfect, this wasn't my actual plan.

      Before bed yesterday, I did a review of my core five tasks for this month, and quickly had a look at the TOTM, decided I would go for the mirror and naked one. But my subcon seems to have its own agenda. Anyways, happy to have completed the basic tasks early on. That leaves more space for other tasks and some free-styling.

      I was also surprised with my quick and timely prospective memory this morning and the task follow up during the second LD. I did drink 1/2 small bottle of sugary cold frappuccino during the first WBTB. Got the lds 1h 30 and 3 hrs after consuming it, I wonder if it did help. If it did, that makes it super frappuccino. But apart from those two dreams my recall was pretty bad. I only remembered one more insignificant fragment. Maybe the most important ingredient was greed?

      @ Highlander

      Thanks! Oh, you are not getting away from this one. This is the month all DV members get naked.

      Well that explains it! You had all the most important ingredients for lucidity -- sugar, caffeine, and greed. I'm going to spend my WBTB chugging regular soda and diving into a pile of gold coins a la Scrooge McDuck.

      BTW, have you seen Xanous' "Research" thread on caffeine? There could be something to that Super Frappucino!

      Lol! I love this comment!

      Oh yeah, "caffeine as a trigger", I remember the thread. Interesting! Maybe I should post the results there? I think that there might be something to it indeed, especially when combined with a decent WBTB effort and greed!

      I finished the rest of the bottle today to see if that would be enough to have awareness emerge again at the end of REM. Was very sleepy, so I drank the coffee, went straight to bed and fell immediately asleep. Missed a couple of dream signs, like there was some kind of mine/base on the moon that was visible with the naked eye. I also could zoom in and see it in more detail. Oh well, next time!

      Yeah, there really could be! A good shot of glucose has all kinds of effects on the brain. I ran across a study recently on how this measurably improves willpower. Caffeine's got all those effects that Xanous and I have been speculating about in the caffeine thread. I think this looks like a perfect experience to post in that thread! If you've got any insight as to caffeine content that'd be cool too. But we can probably guesstimate. Is this one of the little Starbucks ones that my wife likes?

      It's good, too, that you're not experiencing any insomnia issues with it. That sounds to me like you're nailing just the right amount of caffeine. For sure caffeine's one of those supps where more is not necessarily better. Hitting just the right point where deep sleep is suppressed but not REM is the trick. Probably very dependent on the person and their tolerance level.

      Yeah, sounds cool; as long as Admin don't ask for visual proof along with the report!
      I can almost hear people going, "Ok... but you go first!"


      @ CanisLucidus

      Re: Caffeine.
      I'm quite tempted to try chocolate during a WBTB.

      You got me there! It was a SB frappuccino. Maybe my feelings of secret morning enjoyment also contributed. (Shhh, we don't want SB to use this info and build an ad campaign around it!)

      All right, I will be adding the entry to the caffeine thread a bit later. I checked online so half a bottle is about 40mg of caffeine.

      Insomnia and LDs is a bit like playing Russian roulette for me, the only difference being that I don't even know where the trigger is.

      @ Highlander
      MMmm, that will be a very interesting research since chocolate does stimulate brain centers. Ask Aly which ones! And mixing chocolate and menthol - that would be fun too!
