Recurring elements in my dreams:

- Bridges leading directly into a City
- Rivers, lakes, seas, etc., often with trees or buildings poking out of the surface of the water
- Mountains, cliffs
- Driving a car (from the wrong part of the vehicle)
- Godzilla-sized monsters, and trying to escape from them
- Fleamarkets, toy stores, etc., with a huge selection of exotic vintage toys that are either very cheap or very expensive
- Visiting my favorite toy dealer at the fleamarket (who is different every time)
- Houses and neighborhoods where I've lived, mashed up with other houses and neighborhoods where I've lived
- The ability to hover a few inches off the ground
- Being shot at and killed or injured
- Loud arguments
- Running on all fours
- Urban decay
- Having to fight, and being unable to punch/strike/run
- Being in a battle, and my weapons are imaginary, and I'm hoping the enemy knows I'm pretending to shoot at them so they can take damage
- Music that occasionally carries into wakefulness for a short time
- Meeting a famous person

I dreamed that the chandelier in my house fell and everyone was like god, it's about time

(due to Things from like twelve years ago, our chandelier has been hanging by like two wires for a long time; of the ~20 lightbulbs on the thing, two of them work)

Shrug. It's fine, aside from my dreams.

Which, y'know, fair enough.

Then I dreamed I was not in the game but this rule about water and eels still held, so I saw a deep pothole by the sidewalk I was walking on, and a giant fucking eel jumped out and tried to chase me but because it was an eel it didn't so much chase me as flop around a bit before it died from not being in the water

Anyway that was a particularly weird fucking dream
muteKi, this thread isn't called "I EEL ASLEEP".

...

Wait... You can't spell FEEL or ASLEEP without EEL so I retract my previous statement.

Zombie apocalypse. During a chaotic melee, a zombie managed to get his teeth onto my bare arm for a split second before I yanked it away. Did that count? He didn't break the skin but there's kind of a little red mark. Maybe I'm okay. I probably shouldn't tell anyone about this... Oh no, I'm that guy!!

Neighbour was playing loud-ass butt rock for hours while I was trying to sleep some stress off. I ended up dreaming about struggling to get the phone working long enough to call the building manager and complain.

Had to take a taxi home from a nearby shopping center where everyone was buying reissue Transformers and gundam kits in enormous boxes. The taxi driver had a huge stack of DVDs in his back seat. We somehow walked through my house before he dropped me off. A racist guy in my neighborhood tried to pee on the driver, but peed on my brother instead.

I've never ridden in a taxi.

Had a horrific nightmare just now of me being a kid in my old bedroom in the dead of night, a woman appearing in the room, ripping my heart out, and eating it in front of me. She forced me to watch.

I could feel it. It was bloody. It was not fun.

That's awful, and horrifying, and I'm sorry such an awful dream happened





but
all I can think of
is
"FATALITY!"

Last night I dreamed I was reading Marvel Comics' Inferno, a storyline I have never actually read, so it was about aliens who were invading the Earth... and their weakness was that they were intoxicated from eating moldy bread.

I had this quick fever-dream like flash earlier today of a middle school girl going to school with her backpack on her back and carrying a chainsaw in her left hand.

I had a stressful dream about Talking Time. I was doing The Top 50 Action Figures list, but for some reason people were shipping me action figures in the mail. I couldn't remember if I was supposed to review them individually or send them to other people (because maybe it was also an action figure exchange?), but I couldn't find anything in my PM list. I was afraid people were going to get mad, then I accidentally broke one of the more fragile figures and that just made things worse...

I had a dream about one of my IRL friends. Her clique had gotten fed up with her and decided to cast a spell on her that sealed her in a tapestry (marked with nothing but a letter that kinda looked like "P"). Then they finished the spell by performing La Louche with some absinthe.
