Late for the School Bus (recurring dream)

Rating
Saturday, June 24 2017

     I have been having this dream (or some version of it) sinceI was in high school!  Based on the real life experience where my dad failed miserably, time and time again, to wake me up in time to get ready for school.  "Kristen!  Wake up!  It's time to get ready for school!  The bus just went down the street, you have five minutes to get ready..."  Our house was the oldest in the neighborhood and sat at the top of the street, whic

Shopping for Pat

Rating
Tuesday, March 3 2015

My best friends Dad wants me to do some grocery shopping for him.  He is driving me around some unfamiliar part of Ohio where it is mostly flat.  He takes me to a shopping center (with no recognizable name) on the edge of town.  I get a cart and fill it with groceries for him.  I have had this dream or dreams like it several times.  In this instance I buy clothes for myself also.

We are Ordinary Evil Genies

Rating
Saturday, January 17 2015

Gavin and I are evil genies. We encounter a dense thicket of thorns opposite my dad's property (soybeans or corn in real life). We travel through the field until we see a terrible machine approaching us methodically and at high speed! It was a sort of rolling electrical hay baler that spanned the width of the field leaving us little option to run. We dove into the machine just as it reached us, managing to tumble through it unharmed, besides suffering some minor unpleasant electroc

Moving to San Francisco

Rating
Sunday, August 3 2014

     I was in San Francisco with Cath.  We were visiting family or friends, but we were also looking to find a new home in town too.  I remember crossing a big red bridge on foot.  There was also a bit about a rural area and a man on a tractor.  Can't remember much at all.  I keep getting images of stones and butterflies, but I can't really remember anything substantial.

Exploring a Building, Considering the Rules of Songwriting

Rating
Saturday, July 19 2014

     Some unknown and yet strangely familiar building.  Also something about writing songs, and thinking about how there are rules to follow while doing so.

The Sandman

Wednesday, June 25 2014

     So I've been reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, and the other night it finally occurred to me how freaking awesome it would be to have a dream with the character Dream in it, and then that night I did!  It was REALLY SUPER EFFING cool!  Unfortunately I can not really recall anything from it.  Like often enough I can't remember much more from my dreams than fuzzy images or lingering feelings, but this dream consisted more of abstract ideas.  I think even

Hamburglars

Monday, June 23 2014

     Woah, buddy.  I think my strict dieting is getting to me.  I dreamed that Gavin and I robbed a combination McDonald's/Frisch's restaurant.  We didn't even take any money we just filled up several very large paper sacks with various sandwiches and french fries.  I remember using the fry scoop and everything.  I don't remember how we managed to pull off the heist, but we wound up inside the drive-thru aisle with no staff to be found.  There was als

Lake Party, Baby Platypus, and a Rock Band

Rating
Friday, June 13 2014

     THIS was a weird one...  I seemed to be near Hidden Valley Lake, IN?  I think?  Amanda Trivett was with me, and we were attending this concert or big party or something...  I remember there being a LOT of water, very dark water.  I think we were on a beach or maybe a grassy dam, and someone had a baby platypus.  They tried to hand it to me, but I was really concerned about getting stung by it's spurs or something...  There was a band playing

Mountain Jail with Mandy

Rating
Tuesday, May 27 2014

    Damn!!!!!!!  This was SUCH a fun dream, but I woke up too quickly and I can barely recall a thing!  I know there was a sort of a jail at which Mandy and I were prisoners.  I vaguely remember this sort of truck or platform or something that transported us around the grounds which were...  well, kind of beautiful.  It was nothing too extravagantly picturesque, but there were rolling hills and lakes.  Anyway we had to do this course a few times...  I

Itchy Hand Diagnosis

Rating
Friday, May 23 2014

     Wooooah...  Been watching a bit too much House lately, methinks...  I dreamed that Cath was House (somehow) and he was trying to diagnose a medical problem involving my hand.  I was experiencing intense itching between my palm and last two fingers (pinky and ring).  He was saying something like, "What would cause an itchy palm presenting with..."  Can't really remember.  Woke up soon after  and it turned out my entire arm had fallen asleep a
