The one in which I act like a jackass

Last night I had a dream where I was in a room with some other people, and they did something to make me feel small and stupid, and I left feeling a little put out.

Then I was walking down a hallway.  It was a sorta futuristic, dark hallway, like something you might see in an episode of 24 in the CTU.

Two jobs

I had this dilemma where I was still working at my old job, while currently at my new job, and I had an evening where I had 3 things scheduled at once. I was sitting in a large ornate theater pondering what I was going to do and which job to give priority to. The one obligation for the old job only required a few minute of time for a film screening, but it was in New York, so precluded being able to do anything else.

So then I walked out onto Lincoln Center Plaza, and ran into a friend and former co-worker. She was running/training. She's about 20 years older than me, so I was impressed that she could run faster than me.

Dog stroller and fashion line

I was walking to work with a co-worker and a woman from my parents' church. Along the way we decided to stop in 84 Lumber and buy a dog stroller for these friends of mine who have a puppy. The stroller came with a doggie sweater too.

When we got to work, we were a bit late so we had to go straight to an auditorium for a presentation. The presentation was the pitch for a new fashion line started by the above friend with the dog (who in real life does work in the fashion industry). I sat next to her (actually I sat between her and her boyfriend) and gave them the stroller. They didn't seem to like it.

Office Space

My office had moved to my parents' house. Most of my parents furniture was still there, but everyone was moving in. I started running around telling people that they couldn't put stuff on the bookshelves, that all that furniture would be taken away because my parent's owned it. I started wondering whether my parents even knew that my office had bought their house...

Ghosts and Vampires

True Blood has been off the air for months now, but I had another sexy Eric the vampire dream... sigh...

In the other part of the dream, redneckhunter and I were moving into a big old house. We had a son who was about 7 years old. The house was fully furnished with mid-century modern furniture, and seemed to have 3 separate formal living rooms and 2 formal dining rooms. There was a cool room with eaves that we were making the kid's room.

We had heard that the house was haunted by the ghost of a tall woman. As we walked through the house there were all these red herrings of things/people that might be the ghost. For instance, we saw our son on a couch with a cloaked figure, who turned out to be my brother in a sleeping bag sleeping on the couch.

Later on, we were getting ice cream at an ice cream stand that was in our house. There were other customers in line too. One woman in line looked like Vanessa Redgrave wearing a long hooded cloak, and I wondered if she was the ghost.

Another pee dream

One step closer to my probably inevitable decline to nighttime incontinence. This time in my dream, I actually did wet the bed. Redneckhunter was not upset - what a great guy.

Al-Jazeera TV

My battery for my laptop had exploded (in real life), so it was in the dream. Redneckhunter had it, along with various other computer and electronics devices dismantled in our bedroom. I found an old TV in the corner. It was a 1970s era wooden frame TV set with the side speakers. When I turned it on, all that played on it was Al-Jazeera television. Our landlord is Muslim, so I thought maybe he had left it here. The TV set itself though was Chinese-made, and had Chinese characters on it.

Nick Cave, Neil Young, and Skinheads

Only vague recollections of recent dreams but here goes:

1 - I was waiting on the balcony above a large atrium of a monumental building - akin to the modern wing of the National Gallery. A bunch of others were waiting with me - they looked like paparazzi, and all of us were attempting to be nonchalant and ignored each other. One of the other people up there was Nick Cave. Then our target arrived in the atrium below. He was a large muscular but puffy skinhead. He was pontificating below, and at some point there was also a sexual display with two guys going down on him.

2 - One morning, I awoke from my dream saying "But I don't like Neil Young."

High School frustration

Dreamed I was back in high school and I was dating a guy who I had a crush on sophomore year. He was a tall skater dude with tawny-reddish hair. In the dream, we kissed a lot, but we hadn't had sex. We did a bit of sneaking around the parents and such. Another problem on the sex front was I found out he had had some accident in which he needed to constantly wear this harness device on his groin/hips.

Lots of walking in Latin America

Redneckhunter and I were living in Latin America, as was my friend Claire. I walked through a bunch of fields, and climbed a couple of stone walls to get to Claire's place one day. We then walked a whole bunch more and down a subway stairwell on our way to meet another friend Holly. I was telling Claire about how we hadn't yet gone to McDonald's while moving here, but that I wanted to go on Christmas.

Banquet for Two

I was at a Chinese banquet, except that only myself and one other guest showed up. But it was enough food for the standard table of 10. There were many courses, but the ones I remember were lobster and giant prawns. I was taking pictures, naturally, for the blog. Then I had a thought akin to "If a tree falls in the woods," if a Chinese banquet is amazing but not really eaten, then was it actually delicious?

Skateboard luge on a highway

I don't remember much about this dream.

Skateboard luge racing on a highway, with regular cars passing and being passed.  Somehow using my hands to push the pavement and accelerate.  Getting passed by another racer and not being in first place any longer.  That's pretty much it.

Invention Convention

Redneckhunter and I were at an Inventor's Competition/Fair. At one point, I had just come out of the shower in our hotel room, and he had misplaced his files on his invention, so I offered to go look for it in our other hotel room across the hall. Rather than get dressed, I just slipped on a button-down men's shirt - didn't bother to button it, nor put on underwear.

While I was in the other room looking through his bag, there was a knock on the door. Assuming it was redneckhunter, I didn't bother to cover up. It wasn't him, in fact it was a large family of people - parents, grandparents, children.
