    Last night I was in supposably in Washington D.C. . But it wasn't anything like Washington D.C. . First off I was looking for some Ice Cream. Then I was taking public transportation buses to the movies. While riding to the movies I went pass this ChinaTown. Their homes looked like the chinese homes in the China world of Sims 3. Then at the movies, I wanted to see Dark Shadows. But something went wrong. I think I was too late to see it and didn't end up seeing the movie. Last thing I remembered was seeing these big unisex restrooms.

    I had an interesting one last night. I was on vacation with my parents and was somehow captured by a witch and held captive in her hotel room. I was able to avoid whatever she had planned for me by hiding in a closet that locked on the inside. Even though she was able to use her magic to unlock it, she wasn't fast enough to open the door before I locked it again. So these two cats come out of nowhere which distract her (she loves cats apparently) and I was able to get out of the closet, grab some cat food and use it to make a spell, sneak up behind her and shove it in her mouth, turning her into a cat.

    Very odd. Usually dreams in situations like this end up with me getting random superpowers to get out of the situation :p

    Another odd dream. To make a long dream short, I dreamed that I had cut my finger, so I wrap it in some kind of cloth bandage. Later on in my dream, I realize the bleeding hadn't stopped to as I take the bandage off to get a better look at it, my skin peels off with it and eventually all the skin on my hand is gone...and reveals a metal skeleton. So I dreamed I discovered I was a robot :smirk:

    That happens to me a lot, also. One time in a dream some guy had a gun and was trying to shoot me and a few of my friends, and when he shot at me, suddenly I had this power that I could deflect bullets off of me, like I was indestructible.
    So, you're half demon, half dead, half ghost, and now a robot. Honestly, what aren't you?

    Honestly, I think we're better off NOT knowing... what we don't know won't hurt us...

    Don't worry, I'm not a robot. Good thing I have super regenerating abilities otherwise we would have had a bit of a mess earlier and I might have been fully dead :p

    Had another one of those fish dreams. Sometimes, just as a minor detail in a dream, there will be aquarium fish floating through the air, and I always get irritated by them. Stupid fish gonna drown, growl snarl grump. So I grab them gently and plunk them back into their aquarium. I'm thinking this comes from having had hatchetfish and other tank-jumpers, but in the dreams they're swimming in midair quite serenely. As this is never the main focus of any dream, I'm always curious what random bump of a neuron caused it.

    Well, I had a dream last night where it turned out that the infamous Joseph Sirrico was a relative of mine and we were all going to the Sirrico household for a family get-together. Cousins, aunts and uncles, even pets were all there. We were all chilling in his bedroom even though he wasn't home when we showed up. We all sat around watching Toonami while talking about random things. Eventually I got up and left the room when Joseph came home holding a PS3 controller and angrily telling/grumbling his mother to "Leave me alone!" I woke up right after that but I assume had I stayed asleep him having a freakout would follow. All I remember now is that he had a shelf of VeggieTales videos and that there was not a single trace of a"Puppeterez Show" in his room.

    Oh, and voice actress Tara Strong was there too for some reason. Yeah... she was a relative of mine in this crazy world too. At least I think, all my cousins were calling her "Aunt Tara"...

    Last night, I apparently had a boyfriend. He was driving me to places. But not listening to what I wanted to do. I felt like Hardees for breakfast. He wasn't listening to me and was going somewhere else. So, I ditched him and got out of his car and into Hardees myself. I was planning to get a "Frisco Breakfast Sandwich" (I really been wanting to try one). I was planning to get that and I saw these fruit turnovers that looked good. Then on the board. I saw that they also have cereal. There was this one called The Smurfs White & Black Popcorn (that was suppose to be some kind of cereal).

    Then after leaving Hardees. All I remember is seeing this guy pop an inflatable chicken (kind of did look like Camilla too).

    Last night, I had one of the strangest dreams I've ever had in my life... I had this dream that I was inside the World Trade Center, in one of the towers, just as it was collapsing: I remember standing there, hearing the rumbling, looking up at the ceiling, just waiting for it to come down on me.

    Wonder what prompted that?

    Heavy, Snowth...any sense of impending and unavoidable catastrophe in your life lately?

    Mine this morning/afternoon (I slept all day -- glorious) was unusual. I dreamt I was a Muppet version of Brian Williams. *waits for laughter to subside* Okay, being someone else in a dream isn't at all unusual for me; my sense of identity is rather fluid anyway. And I've dreamt of being a Muppet before. Haven't been BriWi before, but eh, like I said, ID is fluid... But the odd part wasn't so much that as what was happening. I was summoned to a sort of formal gala/roast/trial, in which an enormous theatre auditorium full of second-string Muppets and Muppet monsters was prepared to try me for not being monstery enough, or being too nice; something along those lines. I knew I had some friends in the crowd, but the loudest voices were angry and against me, and if I was found guilty, they'd kill me. I wasn't given any time to prepare a legal defense, just told where and when to be that evening; running didn't even cross my mind, and I wasn't sure I could do or say anything which would convince them I was Muppety enough, or maybe monstery enough, to live. I stood in the back row of the huge audience expecting to die. I can clearly remember seeing countless rows upon rows of jeering, sneering, angry monsters, and a few Whatnots and chickens and a couple of the orchestra members, all in tuxedos. Just a roiling crowd of unhappy Muppets, all there to insist I account for my actions. Far as I know, the only things I'd done in the dream prior to the trial/gala were to drop off a bunch of brown shopping bags of needed foods and things at the doorstep of a friend, ring the bell and run like ****; and showing a young boy how to dispatch zombies which were plaguing his room, breaking through his closet walls and scaring him. (I demonstrated a good shovel swing would kill one, and greatly relieved the kid's anxiety about it.)

    So...on a weirdness scale for me, this was really only par for the course. Still interesting. I really wish I'd gone through the trial; I want to know what defense I would have come up with, as it had something to do with performing, and I sing only moderately well, can't dance or play any instrument. (I have no idea if BriWi does any of that; though I know physically I was him, and called by his name in the dream, I was still essentially me.) Unfortunately my cat woke me up by horking up a hairball just as I was being called down to the stage/trial podium.

    Curious if anyone else has ever dreamt of themselves being a Muppet version of someone else! :concern:

    Nope. And it's been a good month or so since I watched any kind of 9-11 documentary, which makes the dream all the more strange and random.

    The string seems to be getting worse... I can't even remember when was the last time I went to sleep at night and DIDN'T have any dreams that were weird, strange, freaky, creepy, trippy, borderline nightmarish; this has pretty much been going on, non-stop, for months now, it's really taking a toll on me, and nothing seems to help anymore: not the whole "Imagine nice and good things, what do you like" thing (imagining bunnies hasn't help), not thinking of something you'd rather be doing right now (that doesn't work), and even my old sure-fire watching something Old School SST right before bed (like especially the "Bedtime Stories and Songs" video) hasn't worked. It's gotten to the point I actually dread going to sleep at night because I know I'll just be having another bad trip again.

    What's happening to me? Why is this period lasting such a long, long time? When does it end? How do I make it stop?

    I do what I can, buddy :fishy:

    But seriously, are you stressed or worried about something? I get nightmares generally when I'm really really stressed.

    Nah, so I rully don't get it.

    Maybe that always happens to you, except now you're remembering them more frequently than you usually do. Like maybe instead of remembering you had them 25% of the time, you're now remembering them 75% of the time.

    Don't ask me how to cure that...maybe practice forgetfulness in real life?
  19. Sgt Floyd

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    You know, I had a recurring nightmare, and the only way to make it stop was, while dreaming, to convince myself it was a dream. I know it sounds weird since making your dream self aware it is a dream is hard...but...I haven't had the dream since (knock on wood :p)
  20. Hubert

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    That ain't weird...I do it all the time. Almost every time I have a bad dream, I'm able to say, "Wait, this might be a dream," and then I suddenly have the ability to wake up...
