Dream Journal - The Road to Work Collapses

November 18, 2007

I haven't had a dream to write down in a long time. I wonder if this is a good thing.

I was driving to work. There was one car ahead of me. I saw in the distance that the road had collapsed, and I could see a waterfall pouring into the large gap. The car in front of me plunged into the water. I stopped my car. I saw the lady who plunged swim to the surface. I saw another car come to the surface and someone get out. At the beginning, it was dark, and I was the only one watching, but the dream quickly changed to where it was light, and a bunch of people were looking on.

I was watching for my work friend Julie to drive up, and she did show up eventually.

When the water drained, there was a tunnel underneath that ran parallel to the road for a short distance. That part of the tunnel ended where you'd have to turn right or left. There was a large, faded, painted advertisement on the wall at the end, but I can't remember what it said. I think it was a food advertisement. There were two other signs on the walls, too. Someone commented that maybe there was another city underneath us.

I tried to walk closer to the tunnel, but a bunch of men in blue jumpsuits, like maintenance men, stopped me. I think they were undercover FBI or CIA or something.

Another work friend, MH, was telling the story about how her car went into the water. Her car was equipped with something that would shoot air into the cabin in case of submersion. She had to peel away a window and swim through to get out.

Some musicians showed up and set up down in the tunnel. One was a guy with long, light colored hair. He was playing a 6 string dulcumer where the strings criss-crossed and the neck had a couple of obtuse angles in it. He had some vanilla pudding sitting on the dulcimer's body and somehow used it as part of the music.

Julie said something about the way he was playing in my ear, thinking no one could hear. I thought he was playing fine, but she didn't like it, I guess. I said something back about the pudding. A couple of people in front of us glared, so I interrupted Julie's comment back to me to tell her they could hear. The dulcimer guy also looked up at us. I tried not to look guilty.

Later, there was a luncheon at a nice venue (maybe at U.T.) for people involved in the accident. It was assigned seats, abd I had to sit at a separate table from Julie. I don't know if MH was there.

When I left, someone was admiring my blue and white van (which I don't have in real life). There was some business involved that looked at other people's cars for people who wanted to buy a similar car. But then I think it turned out to be something nefarious, and I might be getting mixed up with something I saw on Supernatural as I was falling asleep last night.

Dream Journal - A Big Bomb

May 5, 2007

I was with a group of people � maybe at a research facility. I was outside, and they were in the building. I saw a plane fly very low. A giant bomb slid out the back and began to move slowly along the ground. It was cylindar shaped with a round nose and wings on the back. I knew it was nuclear. It kept sliding along the ground. I didn�t feel like I should run and tell anyone because I thought it was going to explode any second. I had Lily dog in my arms, and I was bracing for it to blow. It just kept sliding slowly along the ground.

After it hadn�t exploded for a minute, I decided to walk back to where the other people were. The bomb was zig-zagging a bit on its slide along the ground, and as I moved toward the building, it started moving toward the spot where I had been standing. It slid out of sight.

I found the people. They were in a room open to the outside sitting at a picnic table. I asked them if they knew about the bomb. No. I think I was the only one who knew. I took one or more outside to show them, but all we could see was the zig-zagging trail the bomb left behind. The trail ended in a stream of water, and we assumed it was in the water.

I asked someone, �Do you think they dropped it here because we�re here?� The person said, �Yes.�

I still had Lily in my arms.

I think we got in our cars at that point. I think I went to an apartment to wait for the bomb to blow up. It never blew up during the dream. I kept thinking about what it would feel like, though. If I would hear the explosion. If I would feel a heat wave. If I would feel pain. Or if I would just die instantly.

Dream Journal - Work in My Bedroom

April 2, 2007

I was in my boss' office, but her office was really my bedroom. We were talking work stuff. I apologized to her for acting down and explained that I had a lot of stress in my personal life right now.

As I was talking, I looked through the drawers of my nightstand. In the bottom right drawer, someone at work had taken some things out. I wasn't surprised because it was stuff that I shouldn't have at work anyway. One of the very few things left in there was one of those knobby back massage things. It was different than the one I have, though, because it had a handle on it so I could use it on my own back.

There was a refrigerator where my TV is. We opened it. There were little hamburgers in the freezer section and sandwiches in the fridge. We suspected the work people put those there, but couldn't decide whether we'd be allowed to eat them.

Dream Journal - Cats

October 21, 2006

There were lots of cats in my house. My cats were there, but there were others. After a while, I realized some were small tigers. Then I noticed some small lions. I looked at my bedroom window and saw there was a hole where they were getting in. My bed was moved under that window in this part of the dream.

I thought I'd better call the police since there were lions and tigers. I couldn't remember the phone number, though, for non-emergencies. I was trying to find it on the internet. Then there were some men outside, so I asked them if they would help me get the cats out. I'm not sure if they did.

Dream Journal - Convenience Store and DJ's Car

February 11, 2006

I was in the shower. I started, but I needed soap, so I went to get some. There was a convenience type store outside of the shower. Jennifer Paris from work was telling me I should buy some cheese crackers with cream cheese in the middle. There was one package left, but I didn't want it. Then I went to the butter section. I couldn't find the butter I was looking for, though. Then I went to the shampoo section and found some shampoo and conditioner.

Later, I realized that part of the dream was really me at the hospital with my Dad. A couple of people at work saw me there, but I didn't see them. They told me they'd seen me later.

Later, I was in my friend DJ's car. He drove on a detour from the main street through a long driveway at a house. The people from the house kept coming out and getting in the way of DJ driving. There were 3 of them.

At the end of the drive where it went back to the street, I was alone and needed to find DJ's car again. There was a traffic jam, and DJ was in the second lane in front of me. A guy in a red hot rod was mad at DJ for waiting for me. I think his name was Mike. He was driving aggressively around DJ's car, and I couldn't get to the car. I ended up jumping on top of the hot rod's roof. That made Mike madder. I was able to hop from Mike's roof to DJ's roof and swing down into DJ's car. Then I slouched down in the seat and hid, but I kept peaking over the edge of the window.

Mike finally drove away ahead of us. His tail lights were very bright and round and colored like traffic lights: red, green and yellow.

Then Mike stopped and said something to Bill Murray. Bill went in the middle of the road in front of us and pointed a gun at us. Then both DJ and I slouched down.

Dream Journal - Cop Prostitute and a New Room

February 5, 2006

I was moving into a new room. It was very small and had a twin bed. I was putting things into the drawers of the night stand. I had some new-to-me shirts. They were hand-me-downs or gifts or thrift store shirts.

Later, there was a cop dressed like a prostitute in red and black. She was arresting me, but I didn't know why. Apparently, one of the new-to-me shirts I was wearing had cocaine hidden in it by the previous owner. It was hidden in little blue ribbons.

In another part of the dream, I had a bigger room. A fire truck had to drive through it, and I realized that I would need to keep the floor clean or the fire truck would run over stuff when it needed to drive through.

Dream Journal - Entrance Conference and Zoo

February 5, 2006

At work, I went to a building across the street for an audit entrance conference. I wasn't going to go at first, but decided after another lady left, I'd go, too. When I got to the lobby, I had to sign visitor paperwork and get a badge. There was a lot of paperwork, and it took me a long time. There was a place where I was supposed to put the purpose of my visit. The lady told me something specific to write, but it didn't make sense, so I wanted to write something else. When I decided what I would write, I couldn't find where I was supposed to write it. I flipped through the book over and over to find the place she had put my name.

I realized I was wearing a flannel night shirt, and thought that was probably inappropriate for an entrance conference. But I was going to go anyway.

There were lawyers' offices in the same building. I saw celebrity names in the visitor logs. They were visiting the lawyers. I mentioned this to someone later, and they said that the lawyers took care of unwanted babies. So I asked if that meant that all those celebrities had unwanted babies. She said, "Yes."

The building turned into a zoo. There was a crowd around a pond, and someone was leading a discussion about puffer fish in the pond. They were taking the puffer fish out and rubbing their bellies. Then the crowd dissipated.

The cats that live on my porch were wandering around the zoo. When it was time to go home, I wanted to round up the cats. I kept calling out "P.K." Lots of other dogs and cats came, but not P.K. I ended up going home, but I wanted to come back later to find her.

When I got home, both cats were there, so it was okay.

Later, I went out to drive somewhere. There was a washing machine in the front yard wrapped in gift wrap. It was a present from my Mom to my Dad. The trailer someone used to bring it was behind my car. The trailer was made of white plastic, and it was very easy to push out of the way.

Dream Journal - Bad Storm Coming

January 29, 2006

I was on a trip with my church choir. We'd traveled to another city. There were supposed to be bad storms there in the afternoon. I was outside, and it was sunny and beautiful. There was a waterway across the road, but no water in it. Then they opened a dam, and I saw muddy water flowing into it. I watched the water rise and thought it would keep rising over the banks, but then it didn't. Then I saw cars driving in the water.

I wanted to take pictures of the beautiful buildings on the campus. There was one that looked like a cathedral from Paris. I decided to go back into the hotel because I needed something else for my camera. I couldn't find my room at first. There were people with no arms and legs sliding down some staircases, but they didn't seem to be having trouble.

I found my room, and called my brother. He said a bad storm was coming and to be careful. I looked out the window, and saw Mammatus Clouds covering the sky. Giant drops of water were forming in patches in the clouds. Then they started falling. When they hit the ground, it sounded like an explosion. I asked my brother if he could hear the sounds. He said, "Yes." I told him those were the raindrops hitting the ground.

He told me to be careful because people with automatic weapons would be coming out. Then something was happening, and a boy was flying through the air. He came right through the glass of my window and landed on the floor. He got up and went out the door.

I gathered my camera and decided to go find the rest of my group. I thought they were probably rehearsing now and that I'd be in trouble for not being there yet. There was something about another couple who had left their stuff in my room. I got the lady's purse and took some of her things out (keys, wallet), and put them in my purse so she would have them.

Then I was in the accounting room. I saw that the group from Norway had cancelled their trip. They were highlighted in a ledger. I wasn't surprised they'd cancelled.

Then I was taking an exam. A coworker, Brian, was talking to me out loud and showing me his exam. I told him people would think I was cheating, but he didn't care. He was trying to help me.

Then I was doing a large load of laundry. Wet clothes were in a rectangular bin. To dry them, I had to spray them with a cool mist and hang them up to dry, so I started doing that.

Dream Journal - Laptop Spyware

January 25, 2006

I had my laptop and my desktop on. I was using my desktop to chat with a friend. My laptop had a screensaver on it that was pretty elaborate. I think it had a beach background. There were four characters on it. One was Snoopy. Another was Anthony Keidis from Red Hot Chili Peppers. Anthony kept singing songs. Sometimes Snoopy would howl.

I realized that I hadn't installed the screen saver and thought it must be spyware or a virus. I was trying to chat and work on my laptop at the same time. I tried to start Adaware or Spyware S&D on the laptop, but got big red warnings on the screen.

Dream Journal - Double Booked and Sailboards

January 23, 2006

At work, I had accidently made meeting appointments with two different small groups of people at the same time. One was lead by the acting director of the Texas Legislative Budget Board. I was sitting at my desk, trying to decide which to cancel and trying to think of an excuse. I even considered cancelling both and going home sick.

Sitting at my desk, I looked into the mirror on my overhead bin. I had colored my hair recently, and noticed I did a poor job—that my roots were still the old color (brown and gray). I also noticed skin flakes in my hair. I started pulling them out of my hair and started finding some big flakes. I must have burned my scalp because it was peeling.

I got up and went somewhere. When I came back, I noticed a monitor right outside my cubicle that showed everything that was on my monitor at my desk. I started to dismantle it, when I noticed that both my meeting appointments were at my desk. I had to admit to them that I'd double-booked the meetings.

I decided to try to stand between the groups and attend both meetings at once. Of course, I wasn't able to pay attention to either when I tried to pay attention to both.

Later, I was at the beach in the ocean. I found out that the company who rents beach umbrellas was now renting sailboards. I didn't rent one, but I had something in my hand that would catch the wind. I was sailing for a minute on my feet. There were many people out with the rented sailboards. The sails were beige with a light blue design on them. I kept getting tangled in strings that were holding inner tubes full of kids together. I think the kids were yelling at me. I got tangled in some string underwater, and was afraid I would drown.

Dream Journal - Work Travel

January 22, 2006

I was traveling for business with people from work. It was dinner time, so I went with a few people to a chicken restaurant. I think it was called "Johnson's" but that doesn't sound quite right.

I had some things to do before I could eat, so I sat in the car. I thought it would only take a few minutes. When I was done, I went inside. They were almost finished eating. I went to the counter to order, but I'd never been there, and didn't know how to order. I couldn't find the chicken menu. The menu looked like it was all drinks.

I told the person behind the counter that it was my first time there, and I didn't know how to order. She laughed at me, took off her apron and started doing a song and dance. Apparently, they like to embarrass new people.

They served me some food in a to go container, and for some reason I ended up with 4-5 big to go containers. I went to the booth where my coworkers were sitting and had to ask one to scoot over to make room.

Later in the dream, my supervisor asked me if I had the key to my hotel room. I realized I didn't have one, but was confused because I'd been in my room already. I couldn't remember the room number, so I needed to go back to the room to find that out before I went to the front desk.

I went up there and found out there were two doors to my room, both unlocked. They had different numbers on them. I wrote them both down because I knew I wouldn't remember them.

I put my laptop in the closet on the shelf next to some Christmas decorations. My laptop's backpack had Santa on it, so it fit right in. I figured if anyone came in there to rob me, they wouldn't take it because it just looked like Christmas stuff.

My supervisor said they were going to drive around town that evening and asked if I wanted to go. I told him I didn't have time.

Back at work another day, everyone was crowded around the window looking across the street at the top of a building. People were on the rooftop practicing speeches.

Premonition? Coincidence?

January 12, 2006

About a year and a half ago, I had a dream that I wrote about in my blog. Here's part of my entry:

I was at work. I turned around to say, "Hey David, we going to lunch?", but before the whole sentence was out, I realized there wasn't a David there.

The weird thing is that a year later, we hired a guy named David, and he sits in the cubicle next to me.
