Baby Pig Dream

July11

Matt’s brother Brian had a really cute pet pig that he was giving a bath. Matt’s family and I went on a trip where we were with 8 little kids. One kid could not speak English and he said his name was Mohamghetto. He almost knocked a microwave over on his head.

Brian and I took Colby to the park this afternoon and there was a lady and man with 2 pot bellied pigs! They were cute. Now I want a pig.

Algebra Test/ Solo Dream

July10

I was in an Algebra class and there was a test that Friday. I studied Wednesday and on Thursday night I took home boxes of “math” study tools to use. A classmate wondered why I cared about this test. I said it was because I cared Wednesday night. I was going to come back early the next day to study some more… but there was a concert that night in the auditorium so I decided to not go home and then come back for the concert. My sister was warming up on her French horn and told me where she was going to be playing. I was far enough away that I yelled over to her, “So you are going to be on top?” The boys in the band thought my joke was funny. Someone told me that I was going to have the vocal solo in the concert. I was completely nervous all evening. I didn’t even know what I was going to sing. I did know that Matt was going to propose to me though! Before the concert, a friend who we said smelled like coffee came to me, and asked if she could sing the solo. I said that she might as well because I was so nervous.

Coffee BO isn’t all that bad, relatively speaking.

Flying with Pencils Dream

July9

I could fly when I held a bic mechanical pencil in each hand with my thumbs on the eraser.  My sister and I were floating all over my old neighborhood.  I was wearing a thin see-through outfit and thought I was so cool.  No one would vote for me though.  So I learned my lesson and sucked up to the pretty and popular girls and that helped.  I got to a dance where Allison Young was painting girl’s fingernails.  I saw Matt and Chris Corbin dancing on the dance floor.  Matt got me a cool new leather jacket to wear while we were on the motorcycle.  The dance floor was underwater and I was doing water aerobics with everyone.  The DJ was calling names in order to go ahead and leave the dance floor and they called my name, Ocean, so I went to the bathroom.  The bathroom was a mess and covered with poop.  I told one of the dance room employees that it should be cleaner.

Flying with pencils! That’s awesome! I remember I used to have dreams like that all the time when I was a kid.

Action Dream

July8

I was cleaning up a warehouse floor and I saw suspicious men hiding behind pallets (acting like they were the pallets moving around the warehouse.) I had to escape and they were after me. I was crawling through tunnels and they were close behind. I got to a restaurant but they got there too fast. I hid and they blew up the restaurant but I got away.  I was naked and was a supermodel.  I got to an airport with Matt and we flew away into the sunset. Later I told Mel that I would marry her and Ben was going to marry Matt. I swung on the swing set and did cool acrobatics at night.  I was comfy in a tent with Matt and there was a threat of a huge bug getting in the tent.  I worried and Matt killed it for me.

Geez, more nudity!

3rd Grade Formal Function Dream

July7

Dream #1

I was at a 3rd grade reunion. It was a formal dinner and we were remembering the past together. I went to gym class and played football in the gym. I go home to wash up because I don’t want to be sweaty. I needed to catch the bus but my heavy book bag slowed me down, making me miss the bus.

Dream #2

LeeAnn was my mom and she asked me to clean her toilet. The toilet was the size of a small hot tub and I flush myself headfirst down the hole. I ended up in the basement and came out of a drain all sudsy. My dad was outside raking the yard in long rows. My sister and I helped.

Watching the 40’s Dream

July6

I was wearing little football helmets on my big toes as shoes.  I bounced on giant pillows in the front yard with my sister.  The pillows were shaped like a rose.  Emily took some older lady’s underwear and threw them in front of boys and said they were mine.

I watched a lady from the 40’s.  She was sad because she knew her husband was having an affair.  She was riding with her husband in an old car and then I saw her going the opposite direction on a motorcycle.  Her hair fell down out her bun and she looked free.  She ended up at her guy friend’s home and ran on his treadmill.  They had sex after that and she had a happy ending to her tragic marriage.

ThE eNd

The part about the lady is sad but really sweet. I like this dream a lot.

Dead People Dream

July5

Dream #1

I walk by a house that is completely torn up outside.  I notice dead people and pets in the side yard.  There are kids hanging in trees, dogs, with pipes through their heads, and a man nailed to a picnic table.  I go check the scene out and find that everyone is actually alive, but pretending to be dead so that the mother who thought that she had killed them, doesn’t actually kill them. I pretend to be dead too when the mother comes out.

Dream #2

I discover that my house is actually inhabited by another family down in another part of the house, underground and on the backside of the house.  I can see in the windows and see another family room etc. I go to the backyard where the family is hanging out and I feel awkward because I don’t know if it is my yard or theirs.  They welcome me to their cookout.  I end up exploring their house after I sing karaoke with their teenage girls. I get a bad feeling about their mother, who is really bitchy.  Everyone has left to go out so I am snooping around.  The mother comes home early and confronts me.  I cry and make up excuses as to why I am there and promise to do whatever she says so that she won’t press charges.

ThE eNd

Oooooh, morbid….

Campout at Work Dream

July4

I am in a really sunny work place where I keep moving my laptop into a shady corner.  I go out to my tent at the campsite and while cleaning it out, I find a really old (new looking) pair of purple sparkly shoes from the 80’s.  I also find some missing earrings.  My dog Casey runs out of the tent to chase a mother bear.  I am scared for her.  A Hunter captures Casey so that she and his bears can go hunting together.  I start to cry. I am sad that I will never see Casey again.  Sarah Sulser comes to my rescue though!  She confronts the hunter and he reluctantly gives Casey back.  Sarah makes the hunter say out loud that Casey is my dog, not his.  We celebrate by shopping at a college store where they have pre-made lunches on the clothing shelves.

Pizza Italian Sub Dream

July2

I want pizza sauce Italian sub really bad.  I find a new restaurant that serves this sub.  I wait in line for my sub and notice that the restaurant shares space with the pharmacy and doctor’s locker room.  The power goes off and comes back on.  I say I just want half of a sub because I only have 5 dollars.  The restaurant owner says that they DO NOT sell the subs in halves.. I convince him to make me half.  I finally got my half a pizza sauce Italian sub, YAY!

ThE eNd

Woohoo!

Ice Cream Dream

July1

I explain to my family that hotels are not safe. I say that Europeans do not bathe every day because their water is expensive. I am melting my ice cream a little so that I can scoop it but gets too hot and I burn myself. I drop the ice cream and it turns into rice and beans. I pick it up fast and then proceed to serve it to Emily. I have to admit to her that it was burnt ice cream.
