Bike Dream and Mattress Dream

April29

Dream #1
I was starting an out of state college all alone. I had to go to a party and found an old picture from the 60’s of my mom to share with the students. She had a 4 inch waist! At the party I was wearing the same dress that the oldest girl in sound of music wore at the gazebo. I was spinning around and I wasn’t wearing underwear and flashed all of my new friends.. I didn’t mind too much though. I was doing the waltz from the sound of music and there was suddenly a mattress in the middle of the room. Then there was a physically dirty, naked man on the mattress. One of the girls in the room told him that his privates had mud on them! I was mad because he was hogging my dance floor! Later I was drunk and told my friend Mark McD about what happened while I was doing the waltz.

Dream #2
I was riding my bike with Matt and as we were riding onto our driveway, Matt told me not to hold onto my urethra, which was a part of the bike. He said that if I did that while turning my bike, I could tip over!

ThE eNd

I’m kind of at a loss for words on this one.

Skinny Me Dream

April28

I ran into my past self.  She was very skinny and I told her that in the future she wouldn’t be that skinny.  I told her to poke my tummy and I could barely feel her touch… She was wearing a really cute dress and I thought “gosh I would never look good in that!”

ThE eNd

Uh, Becky…this wasn’t a dream…it was real…you’re still skinny!

Posted by Jen on Apr 28, 2007 3:03 PM

Yeah, I agree. No way are you anything but skinny.

Posted by Ben on Apr 28, 2007 7:35 PM

Unfortunately, my old self was even skinnier!  Looking at old pics, I can see why kids would ask if I were anorexic… I was a stick!  DUDE!… so anything extra on me is crazy for me to see

Tornado Dream and Runaway Dream

April27

Dream#1

I was wanting to run away so I got my water bottle, food, and old Barbies and headed out…then I ran into my mom and said that I couldn’t run away because I would miss Dixie Lee and Casey too much… so I laid down on an old couch outside and rested.

Dream #2

I was in the car with matt and there were huge storm clouds above..  I saw a couple of tornados and it got really dark!  We started to spin around and I yelled to Matt that we were in a tornado.  We spun for a while and ended up in a basement with Dixie and Casey.  They were really scared and cuddled up against us.  We got home and Matt said that other people had come in our house while we were gone and used our house as shelter like we did.  The only damage I found was spilled water on the kitchen floor.

ThE eNd

My recurring dreams all involve tornados.

Tornado’s path of destruction = spilled water.

Nice.

Worm Epidemic Dream

April26

Dream #1
I was driving up an exit ramp and there was a cop.  I thought that I was fine when it came to my speed but the cop pulled me over because I wasn’t watching for traffic coming my way…. but I tried to explain that I was on a one way exit ramp and that no one would be coming in the opposite direction!  He said that I couldn’t drive my car anymore.  I had to walk home from 36/37!  MY sister was crying and worried about where I had been.  I was 2 hours late.  She was glad to see me and had donuts waiting for me!

Dream #2
there was an epidemic where everyone had worms growing out of their noses, ears, and other holes… I had them in my nose and kept pulling on one worm as it kept coming out of my nose.. it tickled and hurt a little, not to mention freaky-weird!

Dream #3
Matt and I were at a retreat with friends and they were telling us what to do in life and how we were doing everything wrong.. We got mad and left.. and went to “bed” haha..  Before that though, we ate scrambled eggs and sat on a bright red plastic tree.  I also was going to the bathroom and this guy and gal came in and watched me .. I was really embarrassed especially since I didn’t have a shirt on either… gee!

Dream #4
I was going to follow Matt to get lunch in this really cool purple retro car with his grandma.  We were at a traffic light and lost track of Matt.  We thought we were following him, but we got all the way to Cleveland Avenue and Morse Road and discovered it was not him.   At one point I let Matt’s grandma out of the car… and then thought I saw Matt and drove off without her.  I went onto Morse Road where I passed by this huge yellow beefed-up truck.  I kept looking at it and figured the driver would think I was flirting with him but I wasn’t.  My car stopped running and the driver of the yellow truck got out to help me.  He paid the gas station attendant for the air in my “bike” tire!  I thanked the guy and drove on.  The speed limit was 0 and it was hard to drive that slow (?)  My old dog Annie was in from of me and I helped her along.  I was riding on a skateboard on my stomach, pushing myself along with my hands and feet.  I realized that I had forgotten about Matt’s grandma so I was about to call matt about it and then in real life his phone rang and woke me up.

“Worms growing out of their noses, ears, and other holes…”
You do have a way with words, I must say.

Hillary Clinton and Catherine Zeta-Jones Dream

April25

I was a prisoner in this camp and had a little white fuzzy creature with me.  A girl that was there had hidden on a cliff and was writing a rescue message to float off the cliff.  The not fell down in front of the prison guard and so the girl jumped off the cliff and killed herself.  I managed to escape and hid by a white home because I was dressed in white.   Two other prisoners escaped too and were hiding there.  The prison guard lady found us and this male prisoner hit her on the head to knocker her out.  Then he took a shovel and cut off her head!  I took my little white creature home and kept him safe.

I had to go to a new job with the government.  I was supposed to be there at 8am and there was some kind of event going on at “Grant Street” where my job was.   I looked at my watch and it was 9:20am all of the sudden and I was late!  A huge light came of and a camera man told me to get out of the way because they were about to announce who was president of the United States.  Hillary Clinton beat George W. Bush and I could see her hugging her family on a stage.  I got to an escalator and Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas were chatting.  I asked them how they became famous and they told me..  They encouraged me to pursue my dreams.  They also said they’d take me to my job since they know where the office was.  They were talking on the way and said they knew Matt’s Uncle Eric and Aunt Amy!!  That was weird.  I got to the door to my office and said goodbye.  I went down a flight of stairs and there was a security guard checking for ID’s and of course, I couldn’t find mine.  He got mad that I was clogging up the stairway.  I finally found it and he let me in.  Catherine Zeta-Jones was at the bottom of the stairs and was very pregnant.  She led me to my office desk and was crying and SINGING about how it was all mine and Antonio’s fault for encouraging her! She sang that she would never be more than upper class now.

I got home and my little white creature was sick so I got milk and fed him milk with the tip of my finger.. My creature was so cute!

ThE eNd

Catherine Zeta-Jones is having my baby.

Invisible Elevator and Old House Dream

April24

Dream #1
I went to Sarah Y’s house. It was 12:30 in the morning and she said that her friends were coming over to eat spaghetti. She invited me and I played with her baby and her puppy. At one point, I went out to the pickup truck to chop wood. I stole an axe from someone else’s truck and they threatened me… oh well. It was Christmas time and I got home from Sarah’s house and needed to wrap some more presents. It was early in the morning and I woke Matt up to have him help me.. Then I wanted to vacuum the carpet before my whole family came over.

Dream #2
I was at the zoo or Cosi and I was at an indoor exhibit of pond life. A bunch of little kids were paid to dress up like microorganisms. They wore huge pink and purple bubble suits. I watched as a boy at the exhibit was being introduced to his real father. There was a pond nearby with bamboo sticks on fire (on purpose) and the father turned into my dad and he blew out the flames. I went up the elevator to the second floor and the elevator was invisible.. I could just see a neon blue outline for where the elevator would be.

Dream #3
I went to an old house that was hundreds of years old. There was a tour group coming through it and there were antiques for sale. I Hopped onto a small brown horse and browsed the antique book section. My Aunt Trudy was in one of the small rooms dressed up in old fashioned clothes, sitting next to an old wood stove. She said that my cousin Glenn just had all of his ribs removed and was upstairs resting. I went to visit him and on my way up the stairs, I saw out the window a guy dressed up in old-fashioned army clothes. He saluted me and I went to see Glenn. He was asleep and Aunt Trudy woke him up to feed us all ham and egg sandwiches.

ThE eNd

They threatened you while you were holding their axe? Not very smart of them, is it?

Babysitting Nightmare Dream

April23

Dream #1
I was in the hardware store, helping customers at the service counter. A man came up with a window frame that needed glass cut for it. I measured it and said that we could cut a piece of glass, but then realized that the frame had complex corners and edging. I said that we could not actually cut a piece of glass like that with our cutting machine. The man said that it was okay, and that he could just call Leo Laporte, the Tech Guy, to fix it…. because Leo Laporte could fix ANYTHING!

Dream #2
I was in a classroom with Jessica R (from kindergarten) and we worked on a project together. I turned in a paper assignment early and the teacher gave it back to me and said that it wasn’t up to par with all of my other work. She said that I needed to do it over otherwise I would get a negative score. After class, Jessica and I drove around campus to go find lunch and we stopped where she wanted to go… it was some kind of Chinese place… I wasn’t really hungry for that food, so I went to the cafeteria and finally found a cinnamon roll. Matt was in the cafeteria and made comments that all I ate was sweets.

Dream #3
I was asked to baby-sit 3 bratty kids. I really did not want to do this. The parents were talking to people in the floor above me, saying that I should baby-sit. The parents came to talk to me and were guilt tripping me to do it. They wanted me to baby-sit for 3 weeks, all day and to spend the night. The parents began to kiss me at the same time on my lips.  I said yes to get them to stop kissing me.

ThE eNd

Mmmmmm, cinnamon rolls…… *drool*

And it’s true, Leo Laporte really can fix anything.

Snow House Dream

April22

It snowed so I went out to play in the snow but in some areas, it was so deep, that I began to dig a house out of it.. There were rooms etc.  But the front entrance caved in so I couldn’t get in anymore.. Then it all melted.

I got to ride on the back of a tractor that we were pretending was a covered wagon.

Therapy Dream

April21

Dream #1

I was at this huge church event at my parent’s church… Actually, I never made it to the service because I was in the bathroom the whole time.  I was washing my hair.  I was in the bathroom for a half-hour until my dad and his friend came in and sat in a booth (like in a diner).

Dream #2

I went on a trip to Colorado!  I was looking at a house for sale and they were building a weird bobsled course w/ a hot tub rest stop.  Colorado looked like a winter wonderland with mountain peaks everywhere.  I went on a train ride HIGH up in the mountains, looking at the cities below.  I got a shower at the top of a mountain and ate dinner in the bathroom.

Dream #3

I wanted to get into my elementary school, Huber Ridge, and they were closed.  So I broke into the building, but first, I took the mail off of the flagpole for the school.  The doors were unlocked so I went in, turned on the lights and then turned them off because I heard someone coming!  I hid behind the door.  The principal, who looked an awful lot like Condoleezza Rice, caught me.  She was going to call the cops but I begged her and the other teachers there not to.  I explained that I was upset because I still haven’t found a job and needed to remember the good old days of elementary school.  I started a soap-box speech about how I went to college for 5 years and how it was ridiculous that no one would hire me!  I looked at the teachers and asked, “Did you just wake up one day and ‘poof’ you were teachers?”  (Which doesn’t make sense in waking life)  The teachers told me their life stories including the struggles adopting children and the like.  Because of my tirade, the secretary-of-state-look-alike principal suggested I participate in their TV therapy.  I had to say yes or I suspected they’d call the police.  I had to watch these films where a dude from the 70’s yakked on about things that I couldn’t figure out.  I was so tired during the test and kept laying my head down.  There were questions and I couldn’t answer them… so this was not helping my anxiety.  I asked if I could use the restroom but they wouldn’t let me… I had a hard time concentrating because I had to pee!  They told me that there were side effects from this therapy which included numbness of the right arm and the eyes turning blue for a while.  I never finished the film because there was a beep… which turned out to be my cell phone in real life… so I woke up…it was Matt calling.

Casey Dream

April20

My dog Casey was kidnapped by a mean looking guy.  Casey got away and ran into a Crocodile Mouth door thing.  A 2 man singing group tried to chase her too.  The men stopped chasing Casey and gave me and my chipmunk friend a ride on their amplifier speakers.  We were driving all around a small Italian-looking village during sunset.
