      Staying at my friend Reese’s house, although it looks like our place. Reese’s dad’s camera is charging by the water tank in the backyard, and it’s currently also downloading a movie that her little brother wants to watch. I want to take photos with my camera but I accidentally use his. Afterwards I delete the ones I think were bad (though they’re mostly videos now as I go back through to delete them) and I plug it back in. There’s a computer there with nothing open on the screen. Reese’s dad comes over saying what I need to do, but he sees that I stopped the download, and is annoyed but not angry at me. Reese’s mum is there too, and reacts similarly. I repeatedly tell them that I’m really sorry. I know they rented this movie and they have to return it tomorrow (maybe it’s an online rental, and it expires tomorrow). I tell Reese too as I go inside the house that we could use my computer for the movie. Then I think I tell her Dad? I set up my computer in my brother’s room (which might supposedly be Reese’s brother’s room) and sit on the bed, and then there’s a small problem with an ad coming up.

      A group of us are walking around the house, including my Year 10 health teacher (Mrs L), like it’s a tour. The northern end of the house seems specifically of interest. At one point, we’re talking about something and I say that Jess would do that, meaning my friend Jess who was also in our class. Mrs L. says, “Jess would?” and I realise she thinks I mean Jess Day from New Girl, because she knows her too. I say “no,” and then, “wait, why’d I say Jess? That’s not even the name of the person I was thinking of,” deciding I actually meant Esther. But then I realise I’m wrong and I did mean Jess. We walk into the next room - we’re in the southern part of the house, by the dining room perhaps, though the whole house looks a bit different. I sit at the right end of a couch, and Mrs L is standing, and we’re all talking. At some point I notice Sarah Wayne Callies sort of curled up/lying ‘between’ me and the person beside me (she was really lying on us), and I guess I say, “hi.” Sarah knows my name, and that’s because she’s taught me before. I say, “how did you remember my name?”, and either she or someone else says “you never forget the names of people you taught,” or something. I think of Mrs L, who seems to have forgotten me. Sarah has I think now stood up, and I say “you were my health teacher,” and then “oh no, that was Mrs L,” and I realise Sarah must’ve been my English teacher, and I seem to have an idea that it was for about three years. During this time, I wanted Mrs L to have noticed me and said my name, but she still hasn’t at all.

      Dad and someone like Amy or Annabeth Lisbon show up. I offer them drinks, and Amy/Annabeth chooses some kind of camomile. I ask if that’s just like a camomile tea bag, and she says yeah. I boil the jug, and then it’s later that I’m pouring the drinks and trying to remember what to do with each one.

      Down the other end of the house, there are beans from a beanbag all over part of the floor, and our cat Jill’s playing there, so I look around for a beanbag she might’ve torn open. I’m standing in the doorway again, and then I see a mattress-kinda thing standing on just its corner, and then it falls, as the CD or movie that’s playing plays a couple of notes of victorious-sounding music. I find it funny and want to tell people, and go back down the other end of the house. I end up pulling James down because it’ll be easier to just show him. We get distracted, and when I finally tell him, I realise the mattress thing isn’t around. I go to Henry’s room and see it either there or in the hallway under another mattress or several. The CD/DVD player is off, and maybe the beans are gone too. James helps me come to the conclusion that I must have imagined it. I find it kind of crazy and kind of cool that I imagined that whole thing.

      Jonah (guy I like) turns up. He’s in a onesie - it might be a duck onesie, or maybe I’m in the duck onesie. Either way several people including him and me are in onesies. I’m talking with Amy/Annabeth, who gets called Anna by someone like Murray (friend of Amy’s), and then later I don’t know whether to call her Annie or Anna or Annabeth. We talk about the TV show The Family, because she’d said she has the whole first season. It’s still being aired, so I ask if she only has what’s been aired already and she says yeah. She starts describing the original premise of the show, and then I say “oh yeah, I’m watching that!” We go into the laundry, where she draws, two big love hearts and something else, on the bug netting across the back door. They actually look pretty cool. I say, “do you know who my favourite character is? Hank Asher. Hank. I just think he’s so unappreciated!”

      TV series The Lying Game - Sutton’s back as herself. They’re at the table, maybe her family, and there’s some conversation with her sister Laurel, might’ve been about putting her name down for or agreeing to something; then Sutton’s turning away maybe doing up her shoes and is about to get up and leave.
