Donít think Iíve ever had that one either.

Did have a new hypnagogic hallucination last night. Normally, I see things. Last time, a terrifying man in front of my face a few months ago, more often, spiders. This time it was auditory. Just a short... beeping sequence. Well, booping? It was weird. Not that scary and I wasnít confused. Iíd been thinking about these hallucinations lately (thanks, Mike Flanaganís filmography) and it seemed like I was about due for one.

Forgot most of what I dreamed last night, but I remember this. I was out in the city with my family and this swinging amusement park ride came unhinged in the distance and flew away, presumably crashing and killing all the riders. Horrifying, but I was like: wow, we gotta leave now or the traffic's gonna get real bad. So we head back to our car but for some reason we have pass through this small tunnel and my dad can't do it because he can't crouch. (his hips!) Depressing.

I woke up this morning from a natural disaster dream, trying to avoid what was essentially a boiling flood caused by pyroclastic flow from a volcano hitting a nearby lake. Fun.

I forgot to post about this in the morning, so the details are already fading, but I had some kind of nightmare where I was in a chair with a bunch of friends and acquaintances crowded around me, but then they all suddenly leaned in close to stare at me wearing identical masks of a specific person smiling and kept removing the masks to reveals more copies of the same mask and then all of their actual faces were the mask.

Then I woke up and realized I was late for work.

Three days; three dreams.
-
Iím at the movies. I see two; there are delays at both. Iím like, thanks moviepass. I donít think this matters but there is one other guy with me watching the second movie, a few rows ahead. I walk out of one because of the delay. Long trailers? Hmm. Thereís a group of people and Iím like, are you Jack Kemp, Who owns this theater? Because fuck that guy! I go to sleep on my right side on a baby, who tells me to stop being a baby. Everyone laughs at me. Humiliating!
-
Iím in a city with a frankly cool railroad track running all through the city. Thereís a bed under one of the tracks. So dumb, but I want to live here now that Iím awake. Iím not sure how I got here, but Iím in a dark room with an actress wearing just a bra and is covered with mold. Just large patches all over her skin. The other person takes some mold off; calls it a leaf.
-
Iím just walking past some cool houses and want to get a picture but Iím sliding down a hill and the pictureís bad. Iím in a college dorm and near some obstinate people who are mad countless people are protesting their conservative pop sci articles. Think like Quill*tte.
-
Notes for the first dream only: my brain pulled out Jack Kemp because of that other Kemp in Georgia. Here is a shocking second twist: the plot line about someone like him owning a theater is also Pulled From Real Life. My local Republican state legislator owns the nearest theater. I donít go there anymore. Thanks, moviepass.

Once again I am Piper Chapman in prison. Wild that this is my most frequent recurring dream. ANYWAY I am in a fancy private prison and I am being sent to solitary (and it is very nice lmao. Itís just a nice apartment room) so there is a computer and I start playing some shitty MMORPG and I buy something. This is stressful... how did I get the money... am I spending the prisonís money... will I now get five years added to my sentence.... My mind resolves this in two ways. One, I decide I am rich, which is why I am a private prison. I was just using my money. Itís fine. OR this was fake MMORPG money someone already bought... fine to spend. Communal prison MMORPG account.

I wake up, so I can remember this dream. Back to bed. Have another. Now I am or am just observing Rebecca Bunch from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. There is a Plot Twist and her opponent is her secret older twin and suddenly both are old and decrepit and Rebecca is like, I donít care how much of grandma you inject into yourself... youíll never become her.

I went to bed unusually early for me last night (which is to say just after midnight) because I was exhausted from shoveling, and then I dreamed what felt like all night about having slept through the entire following day because I was too far behind on my sleep and the consequences of having lost a day. So essentially I woke up feeling as if I'd been anxious the entire time that I'd slept. :-/

Most dreams are bad and can affect your mood even if you donít remember them. You know you didnít lose a day, so hopefully you can take some comfort from that.

The only bit I remember from last night is, for some reason, I was looking at co-workersí drivers licenses. An IRL mother-daughter pair were... unrelated in my dream, I guess, because they were only six years apart in the dream for some reason.

I had two separate dreams about radio stations last night. the first one involved my extended family going to play a certain playlist for another family member, and the station host had a tiny hand sized deer as a pet. Is turned into a dream about playing with said deer.

The second was about a zombie apocalypse where we went into a bunker that turned out to be a radio station, and when most of my survivor group turned out to be people of color and musicians, the host raised a stink about having to share his quiet place with a bunch of people of color, everyone swiftly responded with 1.it's a literal zombie apocalypse and we're pretty sure you're going to appreciate people keeping this place running. And 2. Fuck you. Then I woke up.

I was watching a sitcom that wanted to be a mix of human and muppet characters going to college, but instead of muppets it was articulated fursuits. Their mouths flapped when they talked.

I don't remember why, but for some reason Colin Firth figured in my dreams this morning. Like evidently someone on my trivia team knew him personally, but it was no biggie. This is particularly random because I've hardly even seen any of his movies. The song from The Doubleclicks might have something to do with it, but I didn't think of that connection until after I woke up.

I was watching a perfectly normal police procedural where all the detectives took a day off to go see the special Egyptology exhibit at the local museum together. As they were waiting in line, however, they were buzzed by a low-flying, fire-breathing quetzalcoatlus. They decided to investigate the case even though it was out of their jurisdiction. Said investigation consisted mainly of trying to break into the museum after hours, horribly botching the break-in, and almost getting eaten by the museum's vicious guard dogs.

I only barely remember it now, but I had some kind of half-nightmare this morning where I was being assimilated by machines or something? I recall desperately pulling tubes out of myself (it felt like I was yanking them out of my veins even though I think they were too large for that?) that looked like transparent cabling but they kept self-replicating and refusing to be entirely removed.

Bit of one dream: I recognize a co-worker cosplaying as Raven from the Teen Titans.

Last night, good old-fashioned spooky death dream: Iím in a hotel and someone (the hotelier?) has left out propaganda from FAIR (the anti-immigration group) or has left its website on the computer or something. Iím going to... do something about this (what is unclear, but Iím mad) then Iím outside and a cop pulls up (this escalates hilariously rapidly) and Iím worried sheís gonna bust me for loitering. (??) She pulls out her gun and ignores me. A huge plane crashes a block away. I see it, what the fuck. Apparently, thatís why the cop is here? Anyway, gotta run from the explosion but itís gaining on me then there is a sudden hurricane and huge dark winds destroy buildings in front of me and Iím going to die but Iíve never died before so my dream canít simulate the experience and instead I wake up.

I think my brain gave me this dream so I could wake up in time to manage some idle game bullshit in Super Smash Brothers. Destroy all video games.

Speaking of superhero dreams, last night I was Daredevil fighting criminals in a residential area on San Francisco, groaning lawnchairs to incapacitate baddies on a fairly steep slope.

Nasty nightmare last night!

First thing is mundane and kind of hilarious: I was going to see a movie late at night - either If Beale Street Could Talk or Ben is Back - and moviepass decides for me because I just missed the last Ben is Back showing. (note: I plan to see both even though it feels kind of a chore... I recently couldnít buy a ticket for a showing because apparently moviepass cuts that off as soon as the movie starts and I cut it close to save on parking, but the clerk let me buy a ticket to a later screening...) Weirly enough, in dream universe, there was going to be a screening of Ben Is Back at 3:10 AM the next day. Fascinating.

Movie starts and with it the goddamn apocalypse. Basically, these weird mascot (?) looking people are murdering everybody and I know Iím going to die because Iíve seen the trailer for all this, maybe. I escape with coworkers (my coworkers are here?) down a fire escape (doesnít really exist at this ground level theater) but lots of people stay at the theater to watch the movie after some are murdered. Also, lmao, Iíve updated my 2019 watched movies list but I have to append a note saying I didnít finish IBSCT because of... this. Hope I get a voucher.

Anyway, our group splits up in daylight. One person, the main character, goes down one street but seems to be behind the murder mascots, so me and others go down another, but thatís where the murder mascots really are and itís so unfair. Iím gonna die!

Blessed dream shift. Iím just in a car with some actors and one woman in old age make up and weíre driving up a hill and itís like a grass road and theyíre talking about Connecticut. I have no idea whatís up with Connecticut but thanks for the chill end-dream, mind.

Dreamt I was in high school with the cast of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, and my best bud Incineroar was about to be real disappointed to learn that while I liked him, I didn't like like him. But I woke up before that could happen because it was too hot in my room. High temperatures usually make me dream of being angry, but this time apparently just fire-type pokemon.

I was attending classes on an island for some reason? I took the bridge over, but then found that I couldn't go that way because of construction work, but then on the way back to the mainland I ran into some friends who were working on the construction site and we turned around since they could smuggle me through as a coworker. Then we started wandering through the local tiny downtown on the island and waxing nostalgic about local businesses, so I guess maybe we used to live there? I cut through a conference room to get to my class but was accosted by some boring guy I barely knew from a previous work meeting of some sort and then got trapped in a tedious conversation and separated from everyone else. I excused myself from that conversation and finally got to class, but the only open seat was covered in hair. I attempted to brush it off, but then the guy next to it got mad and complained about me being too hairy, at which point I got angry and protested that the hair was not mine.

Then I woke up!

Default I was thinking about my own campaign settings when I fell asleep

I was at a tabletop gaming convention and stuck my head into a conference room that was supposed to host a panel on world building soon and became convinced it was being hosted by our own Solitayre. "Look, at the end of the table, that's his world-building binder!" I told someone else, pointing to a totally generic blue-gray three ring binder.

I stuck around to see what would happen. Solitayre didn't show up at the start and the whole thing was kind of awkward as the other panelists tried to carry it. About ten minutes in, Solitayre walks in among pyrotechnics and loud music and proceeds to take over the entire thing.

He even had short movies based on several of the campaigns he's run that he showed. At one point Wandomi (from the Apprentice campaign started right here on this forum) showed up and I started punching the arm of the guy next to me going "that's me! That's my character!"

My wife and I owned a motel and gas station next door to each other. I was constantly doing menial tasks outside the businesses, and kept putting on and taking off blue nitrile gloves in the course of the work. Every time I took them off my fingernails on one hand would tear the skin of the other. Eventually I it was just ribbons of white skin hanging from blood red hands.

There was also a frightening brawl going between two men in the alley between the buildings that I was trying to avoid.


I had the dream Monday night and I can't stop thinking about it. It was very upsetting. I have two jobs, and I wear those gloves for both of them (cleaning + hazardous art materials). I think it's a message I need to move on from one of my jobs for my health. Which is something I've felt for a long time consciously, but this only reinforces it. My wife supports me 100% if I want to quit as well. Change is so scary though and I feel paralyzed.

Yesterday I listened to a MBMBAM where Justin talked about a burger that gives you nightmares. Also, I recently have been playing Into the Breach and reading about Resident Evil.

So, last night I had a nightmare where the I had to help the McElroys kill an evil spirit that looked like Garfield in an underground complex. Also, I knew that a weird gremlin was going to try to steal Garfield's head afterward to use in a dark ritual, so I helped them plan out how to prevent that from happening. The dream ended as Travis, as Magnus Burnsides, decapitated Garfield with an Axe. You're going to have to trust me that this was all extremely terrifying.
