I'm at a small town on the Eastern Shore.  I've stopped by a once a month thrift sale.  Lots of clothes and costume jewelry, but what catches my eye is a set of Japanese postcards based on 1970s comicbook tv shows.  Karen E. is there.  I asked how she ended up there and she  blamed an economic crisis.  In my dream she's a cosplayer and the character she plays is  going to be in a film soon.  There's another thrift store in town, also only open once a month, but not at the same time.
Then I'm at a movie.  I'm sitting between Tony M. and Paul K. from Tidewater.  It's a seventies Star Wars knock off but the theater is packed to capacity.  We stand, like in church, for a special trailer, which has a song that features the word "green." Tony says if they knew what the song meant, they wouldn't have used it in the trailer.  I've never heard the song before, but I still sing along...

... then the cats wake me up.

I'm in a mall.  I wander into the theater, past the ticket taker, going to the concession stand.  I find myself in one of the theaters, a circular thing ringed by seats.  The film is projected to multiple locations, the ceiling of the room and above each block of seats.  The movie begins, something about Pan Am, I ask the manager if they've ever shown 2001.
I leave and Kreskin comes running through the mall, chased by an animal control officer.  I catch him, dreamshift to her house and she's concerned Kreskin might be a carrier and I tell her he's had his shots.  She has several animals, including a large, 2foot tall, rabbit losing its fur.

1) At a house auction with Matt Z.  He's unfamiliar but entheusiastic and buys a table and chairs he doesn't need.  There's movie memoriablia up but it it really isn't a good auction.
2) My mother is taking me to the library.  I'm wearing a suit.  Planning to check out trade paperbacks of Legion of Superheroes stories from the seventies.
3) Moving into an apartment building, like some big Victorian house that's been converted.  Erin P from Waldenbooks is there.  I don't know my roommate.

Dream:  I'm living in a car or truck in a parking lot.  A police car is in my mirror perpendicular to the truck, so I put it in gear but don't start the engine, rolling forward a couple of parking spaces.  I then go in this Five&Dime to work apparently.  Guy brings up a bikini top and wants to know if it is good quality.  I check the label: made in china from 50% recycled materials.  I tell him it's already half used and he says if hes spending $45 on a top he wants his moneys worth.

Dream:  I've just quit my job at the bookstore and I'm with my parents at a nearby bagle shop.  A man in a suit comes up to me and asks what the best way to get a gun into the tower was, as he had a friend who sold guns.  I tell him just use the front door.
It's gettting ready to snow and we want to get home before it does.  On the way out, we pass a petting zoo.  I stop and stroke the fur of a sleeping fox.  I look up and my mother is "crab walking" rounding up several pygmy llamas into their pen.  I catch one to cuddle and ask her where she learned to do that.  She said after raising three children, pygmy llamas weren't any challenge.

It's a mashup of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Will and Grace, where Will is backstage at a fashion show and he's in love with a makeup artist, played by Bill Hader as Stefon the club kid from SNL.  Makeup artist is telling Will he can't be backstage and Will is casual about it until he looks in a wall mirror and realizes he's got the only reflection in a room full of models.  There are dressing  tables in the room and the camera pans across the room you see the absence of reflections on those as well.  Fran Drescher plays the head vampire who was based on Janice Dickinson.

Yes, well.  Not sure what to blame for this.

Dream:  I'm in a consignment store and on a shelf there are several old lunchboxes.  I become excited because it looks like one of them... can it be a pristine Adam-12 lunchbox?


I climb on top of a counter to reach it, pull down the shiny metal box and see... Shirley Jones.  It's a reproduction Partridge Family lunchbox.  The shop keeper tells me that it's for the dvd boxed set, which interests me a far as how annoyed Perry would be.
--
I used to have this in real life. I found a thermos years ago, it's in storage in Norfolk right now.   l love Adam-12.  I recently re-watched EVERY episode on netlix. Surprisingly, it still holds up.  A little dated, yes, but that's to be expected.

The hell of the Partridge Family Perry would have to endure is closed captions = SING-A-LONG!

Dream:  I was working at the bookstore and we'd just gotten a comp copy of the biography of Alien, from the movie of the same name, and they'd sent us an action figure as well, one of the new "Old School" Reaction figures.
--
How odd.  I was talking to Perry yesterday about bookstore stuff, like how I'd hand sold several copies of a novel and the boss hadn't realized it until the publisher's sales rep was there and the paperback was getting released.

I was in a school auditorium, based on the one from my high school.  i was parked in the white van up front, the van facing the back of the auditorium, tail gate up, sitting on the bumper.  on the stage there are about  dozen girls in light lavender almost gray dresses, singing and performing, instruments and everything, Tori Amos's song Raspberry Swirl.

Dream:
I'm in an Eastern European city, a capital, city and I'm talking to a local outside of their Parliment equalivent.  Turns out he's actually the Prime Minister.  I don't know this until he comes to visit the States.  I'd done the standard thing of "If you're even in Norfolk Virginia..." and he shows up at my job with a bodyguards and reporters.

Ok, wacky dream.  No zombies. 
Works for me.

Dream:
Two women come into the book store.  One of them is in a gray flightsuit.  She asks if we have a textbook- Modalities or something like that.  We don't but I offer to order it for her.  She declines since they're in town for a wedding.  Then the proceed to activate a tent in the coffehouse side and get ready for the wedding.
I'm at my parents' house- dream house, not their real one.  Looking down at my father in the backyard. Dream house seems based on the one I lived in in Colonial Place.
I then see the disembodied head of my father. It's an optical illusion.  A nail hole in the wall allows images in the next room to be projected into the room I'm in.

Another Dream:
There were zombies.
Again.

Finishing Brian Keene today and the going on a horror fast.  No more horror for a week.
Except for, y'know the news.

Dream:
Me, now.  Standing outside the house I lived in when I was in high-school, a townhouse.  A car drives by and it doesn't really register other than it's a seventies style car, green sedan.  On the second pass, I notice the driver and passenger are little girls, their hair in twists.  On the third pass, they stop a couple of townhouses down and get out.  I ask them if I can help and they tell me no, they're there to see their aunt.  Looking in to the back seat, I see a woman, their mother, lying down, wrapped from toe to shoulder in a white sheet.  I follow the girls into their aunt's house and
the girls are gone and there's a man sitting in a dentist chair.  I think he's Bob Saget.


--

When I go to bed early, I should be allowed to sleep.  My body should say "hey, thanks man, for giving me rest."  Instead it's as if it wants to punish me.  "First, we'll give him weird dreams, THEN we'll wake him up."
It's quarter after four.

Dream- two of them actually, or two scenes from one dream.
1)I'm at my maternal grandmothers and my grandfather has pre-deceased her (it happened the otherway around in real life) and instead of keeping the gracious standards she lived by, she lets herself go into a GrayGardens sort of existance.
2)They're running the vacuum cleaner in the coffee-house section of work and for them to do that, all electrical things on the bookstore side have to be turned off.

Dream:
I'm keeping company with a scruffy bunch of people- five or six of them, kind of like whitetrash Friends, including a Rachel of the group who'd be prettier except she can't wear makeup right.
One of them has a British accent and he used to work at the movie theatre in Churchland.  Another is this Winona Rider looking girl.  They're the two I'm closest too.
We're riding in a bus and it breaks down.  We leave the bus and take a room in a run down motel.  All of us in the same room.  Tempers get touchy.  The girl has a freakout moment and runs off, stealing a car.  The car is on fire, like gas got spilled on the hood and was lit.  She drives away in the flaming car.
In the hotel there are cats.  I think the hotel has been abandoned.
Walking around the back of the hotel, there's a second story to part of the building, but the stairs have collapsed, so I can't access it.

This is probably the closest thing to dreaming a movie I've had in a long time.

Dream:
Adopting a long hair chihuahua.  Small house, fenced in yard.  Dog somehoe gets in, and likes me.  I don't know how to raise a dog, so I call my dad for advice.
--
Boy, my dreams just get more and more exciting.

Dream:
I've somehow ended up at a Women's Expo, one of those "Health & Better Living" events they have around here- supposively about, well, health and better living but really all the vendors are about makeup and fashion.
I have to go to the washroom, and I find it eventually.  Inside, there're tables and a smally keg of beer and a tv, football's on.
--
Yes, I know this sounds like somthing from Spike TV.  No idea what it means.  I don't even like football.

Also there was something in my dream, before I got to the expo, about a kitten running out of an apartment and hiding in a drain pipe.

I dunno.  I just dream this stuff, don't ask me what it means.
--
I tried to eat a healthy breakfast yesterday-fruit bowl and toast.  It cost the same as two eggs, bacon, grits and toast.  Screw this healthy stuff.  If I'm going to pay $6.50 for breakfast, it better be substantial.

Lately, my dreams have been insanely vivid.  Last night's was an 11.
Dream:
I'm in bed, in my apartment.  I feel the side of the bed sag, like someone's sat down on it.
It's the wall side of the bed.  No room.  My apartment is locked, as I do before bed.
I know that someone's impossibly there.  I open my mouth to speak or scream but it didn't or couldn't.
It freaked me out into waking- I was so scared I woke up.
--
No more cattle mutilation documentaries before bed.
--
There were a couple of other dreams as well.  I'm in a theme park in Florida.  I want to see the Sherlock Holmes section of the park, but the park guides want to show me the whole park.  There's a midget wearing a deerstalker hat and I get him to show me.

I don't remember finding it.

I dreamed of gliding.  The wind would pick me up and hold me aloft.  I was holding a paper airplane and by changing how I held it I could control my direction to some degree.  Some of it was set in a parking lot, like by Bob's Gun & Tackle here in Norfolk, but part of it was on a treelined street with a church, felt like Portsmouth. Franky Vallee's song Lightning Strikes seemed to play a part.

Dream:
I'm on my way to work driving a non descript car. Pull into the parking garage, which is some kind of Expressionistic nightmare, and I realize I want breakfast... Drive through the maze of the garage, out through the ticket booth, and onto the street. And I park around the corner from the parking garage, going into a bagel shop and then I'm...
Going to some kind of Outer Banks/podunkville/ locals only kind of restaurant with my parents and to get there you had to walk to it using a bridge that's just an inch or so over the water and made of sticks. There's a railing on the left side of the "bridge"- almost like a beaver dam, but in the ocean- and when you look down into the water there are dolphin corpses.
Getting to the restaurant, there's a coin operated Coke machine.
You go in the restaurant one door and leave through another.
Going out the other door, I enter into a big box office supply store- like Staples, and there are large monitors over the doors showing episodes of LA Law.

But there were, thankfully, no monkeys.

Dream:
I had gotten a new job at a sporting goods store, some place that sold Coleman products. Somehow it was affiliated with another store, which I'd wandered into by mistake- there was an office that joined the two. I didn't realize I wasn't supposed to do this and was snapped at by the boss's secretary.
Somehow I'd ended up at a beach house where there were several people being stalked by a serial killer. Someone (the owner of the sporting goods store?) had two pet monkeys and I had to make sure they were safe. I remember the monkeys quite vividly.
There was a Burger King across from the house, and one of the X-Men movies was being shown in the... glassed in section that wasn't part of the original design. Patio sort of space.
In a standard "don't go out there" moment, everyone walks away from the beach house, along the coast.
I was in some kind of tour group... a cruise that'd docked somewhere. We were collecting Mardi Gras beads and we went to a Woolworths or some kind of Five & Dime and all the books were a dollar... and they had several books by Edward Gorey including an Aphigorey Collection I didn't recognize, The Unstring Harp, and a volume of Dracula. There's a sale of stacks of books. I'm trying to buy some for the purpose of selling them on ebay. Co-worker Delacy was there.
More beads.
Lots of beads.

I have no idea how my sleeping brain comes up with these.
Including the monkeys.

Especially the monkeys.
