Tom Waits again...

I was part of some sort of music conference. 1000yregg was asking if I had met a lot of recording industry people, but I told him that was what my business manager was for. I was supposed to meet up with some girl at a club, but missed her. The next morning, I was having coffee with Tom Waits - sitting at a high table at a sidewalk cafe on a small town main street. I was wearing my grey faux fur jacket, but also had with me a green leather jacket and 2 black leather jackets as well.

Tom said, c'mon let's go, and let's swing by the hotel first. I asked, which hotel are you staying at, and he said the same as you. So we got into a big convertible Cadillac, and I threw all the jackets in the back seat, and as we left, I said, but at some point we've got to go back and pick up the truck (which was Redneckhunter's old Toyota pickup), and Tom said, well, it's Kyle's truck now (Kyle is Redneckhunter's younger brother), and I said, no, you mean, it's Reid's truck now (who is Redneckhunter's youngest brother).

Shark head

Redneckhunter and I were on top of a high balcony looking down on a piano performance. At the end of the concert, the pianist played "God Save the Queen" in British tradition. Just to be contrary though, I stood up and started singing "My country this of thee, sweet land of liberty..." Other people joined in, and when we finished, I caught a woman who looked like Margaret Thatcher, dressed in purple, with a purple face, giving me a dirty look.

Then there was an aquatic show, 2 ginormously large sharks were circling beneath us. They were Jaws-size, cartoonish in proportions (kind of like a wine shark), but still scary enough that I started backing away from the railing when they started jumping. Redneckhunter stayed by the balcony and I watched as one of the sharks leaped over him and engulfed his entire head in its mouth! I ran over and threw my arms around him, but the shark just let go without biting. He was still in shock and just stood there by the balcony, so I dragged him back. His glasses were down around the end of this nose, and his head was slimy and wet, and he had a stunned expression and he was shaking a little. But to be honest, it was pretty cute.

Too much TV

I think I have overloaded on the craptacular "Jersey Shore" show on MTV. My dream was full of muscle dudes living together, only in my dream Michael Cera also lived with them, and he was the one geeky guy who tried really hard to get laid and couldn't.

Fireworks and Fatherhood

Redneckhunter and I were at a fireworks show that was so close overhead that embers were falling down on top of us and singing our hair. No one minded, though, as it was so spectacular.

In a different dream, I was leaving for work very early in the morning. As I was heading to the front door, redneckhunter came running out with a naked little baby girl (presumably our baby), saying "Time to pee, time to pee, time to pee..." And I said, "Where are you going?" He was heading out to our front porch, he said, because she liked to pee out the window. "What?!" I cried, "You can't just let her pee out the window, it's going to become a bad habit. What are we going to do when she goes to school?"

Enemies all around?

Redneckhunter and I entered a building, and as we walked up the stairs, we both starting hearing a spooky woman's voice telling us to beware, turn back...

We got upstairs and there were other people there, and a man started telling us that he had our backs, no matter what happened, that if someone threatened us, he'd hunt them down and kill them. He was really getting everyone in the room really riled up.

So when the doorknob started turning, everyone was on guard. A man with a machine gun walked through the door, and I pounced on him like an animal. I grabbed the gun, aimed it at his head, clocked him in the head with it and knocked him out. I then grabbed the gun, and started running through the house.

It was chaos, I just shot at anyone that looked at all threatening. I had no idea who was on my side, and who, if anyone, was trying to hurt me. There were a lot of Asians there. Things finally calmed down a little when I realized that most of them were on my side, but it was impossible to tell who and why we were fighting.

The Russian Mob - eh, it wasn't that bad

I was on the patio of the building where I work, and some Russian mob guys were threatening my parents. So I told them to leave my mom alone, and torture me instead. They wanted answers to questions I had no clue about. Mostly, all they did was twist my wrists and arms. It hurt but it wasn't that bad - I was expecting that they'd cut me or burn me, but they didn't. It seemed like they knew I didn't have any answers, and they were just going through the motions. They did however shave my head before they left, and it made me cry (though in my head, I thought, 2 years and it will all grow back.)

When I went inside the cops were there and wanted to take a statement. I also showed them my bag, saying "I think you can probably get some DNA evidence off of this" -- it looked like a shaggy dog had rolled all over it, it was totally covered in hair! They also wanted to do a rape test, though I assured them that I had not been raped. "Honestly, it wasn't that bad," I kept telling them.

Conversation with Felicity Huffman

I was in a library-looking place, with what I think were books stacked on shelves.  Maybe it was an old-fashoned bookstore, but it was well lit, and we were in an open area.  There were a handful of people around.

First the group was having a conversation, and I made a witty reference to something the Dana character says in an episode of Sports Night (I wish I could remember what the reference was).  She had her back to me at the time, and she didn't really react.  I turned to one of the other (anonymous) people and said "I really wish she had heard that."

D's TV obsession

We were watching TV in D's living room. K was there, redneckhunter, and a bunch of redneckhunter's friends. D had multiple TVs set up all over the room sports-bar-style, so that two people could be facing each other, yet still be able to watch the same show on TV.

Inglourious Basterds

1000yregg and I were on a tour of the set of "Inglourious Basterds." He was being a total fanboy, as expected. When the tour cleared out, I was left alone with Ted Danson's character from "Bored to Death" and we started making out on the top bunk of an Army cot. It was getting hot, so we moved to the bottom bunk, and then I noticed that there were people moving around outside the window of the barracks. I looked outside, and it was Princeton. They were filming scenes on Princeton's campus - it was right outside of Spelman dorms, but they were making the scene look like it was shot out in the woods.

Pee dream turns ugly

In this version of my pee dream, I was in a bathroom stall, and I was having a lot of trouble controlling myself. I have never been pregnant or gone into labor, but I imagine that this was similar to one's water breaking. I just let out a torrent of water and blood all over the floor.

This must have been so alarming to the woman in the stall next to me, that she poked her head in under the dividing wall of the stall to see if I was alright. For whatever reason, this REALLY pissed me off. I grabbed her and actually started physically hitting her.
