strange and stressful dreams

Jun. 24th, 2008 | 01:01 pm

The first one is from this past weekend.

I was at an SCA event with gorey_ballerina.  Since I'd never been to one before I didn't bring any garb, so I was given some by the organizers.  It was really shit cheap statin, with a corset (plastic boned), and a long skirt to match.  It was purple and black so I was able to feign gratitude for it.  It also had a tudor style head peice, which didn't work with the victorian corset, and neither of them, in my opinion, would work for the SCA.  I tried the head dress on and it fit really badly and affected my hearing.  I insisted on wearing a wimple with the head dress if I was going to have to wear it, which of course, does not match at all.  None the less, i insisted on having a nice, crisp white wimple.  Because of this I was allowed to omit the head dress.
J and I had gone to the event to do some fencing, and rather than being given epees, we were given lances.  That's right 15 feet long out the front and about 4 feet worth of handle.  We ended up having to fence in a ver large room, very awkwardly.

The second dream was last night.

Zombies are kept in a fenced off area, as in the movie "Fido".  Somehow they get through the enclosure and begin attacking.  Thankfully, myself and some other people are staying in some sort of upscale hunting lodge, which had a hidden room, filled with guns and ammo.  The only draw back to this secret room is that there are several windows to outside, which makes it a horrible place to hide from zombie attack.  This did give lots of weapons though.
After a while of fighting off zombies, and not being able to kill them (now I realise it's because we weren't severing their heads... stupid!) the strain of zombie began to mutate, creating zombies who looked and sounded ilke normal humans.  We came across these nwe zombies, and were assuring us that they were normal, so we took them into our hide out.  That's when we discovered that the thirst for brains was just as stong, but it was difficult to shoot them because they were just like normal people.  The strange thing about the dream was that it was a beautiful, sunny day, and the colours were really bright and almost cartoony.  It was a really stressful dream because no matter how much ammo we used, or how many times we shot at the zombies, we didn't get anywhere with decreasing their population. 
I also proved that even in dreams I'm crap with a gun.  I had real problems with reloading the shotguns, since the empty shells didn't pop out after shooting.  At one point in the dream one of my fellow survivors pointed out that I was going to make the gun blow up in my hands if I didn't take more care, and he tried to give me a lesson on reloading, which was stressful, as I needed to reload because we had half a dozen zombies coming at us.

Totalitarian dream

A dream I had this weekend starring fireburntwater
We were living in a society where babies were taken from their mothers at birth, and raised by the government.  For some reason E was pregnant (and had long blond hair), and Dan and I were helping her through her labour.  We had tried to hide her from the gov't agents, but they eventually found us, as she was giving birth.  We tried to fight them off, but they got through.  I was trying to protect E, and her baby from them, but I was also crying, quite hard, which made it difficult to fight.  They ended up taking her baby away, and then took her away, to kill her, because she had tried to hide her pregnancy from the gov't.

The dream ended after Dan and I had devised a plan to save E and her baby from the clutches of gov't agents.  We planned to take her somewhere safe, where she could raise her baby on her own.

Needless to say it was a weird dream.

Wedding dream.

May. 2nd, 2008 | 02:07 pm
posted by: mildred_strange in mildreds_dreams

In my dream last night Dan and I were getting married.  We chose a couple of large rocks at the base of a cliff be the sea for the ceremony.  One rock is where we would stand, and the other is where the bridal party would stand.  All of our guests would have to watch by boat.  The day of the wedding we were setting everything up, and I decided, due to my fear of large bodies of water, that this would not do, that we would have to have the ceremony atop the cliff.  There was concern that our guests would not be able to find us, but guests soon began to appear over the cliff's edge. 
My mother approached me, as the 11th hour was approaching, and mentioned that no one from my list had arrived, and asked if I had indeed sent out the invitations.  I did not.  I was so distracted by getting married on a rock by the sea (a very angry, choppy sea) that I had completely forgotten to mail out any invites.

The dream never ended, or at least I don't recall it ending, but the whole thing was coloured grey, like it had a filter on it for a cloudy day.

It's been a while.

In  my dream Dan and I had bought Ikea shelving.  I was suppsed to meet him infront of the school (because apparently we were both at a school for some reason) to get a lift home with our neighbour.  I forgot about this and got onto a yellow school bus.  As I was riding in the bus, I realised that I was supposed to meet Dan.  I tried calling him on my cell but it wouldn't dial, and I kept hitting the wrong buttons.  I then realise that everyone on the bus has shifted away from one person.  I look up and see a young girl with a gun to her head, calmly stating that she's going to kill herself, because everyone laughed at her, because she dressed differently and no one accepted her.  She's got bright red and orange hair, is wearing a cute plaid skirt and fishnet type shirt.  She's got facial peircings, etc.  As she's going on her tirade about how no one cared, I put my hand up, and said "hi, for what it's worth, I've seen you in the halls and I think you've got some style...  so, yeah."  I'm not sure how it ended because as everyone was telling me that she was going to shoot me for saying that, and panincing about how this was going to affect them my alarm went off.

I had a dream that [Bad username: kingmisha"] died. It was very unpleasant. But as we all know about symbolism, death ain't a bad thing to be dreaming about.

anxiety dream about psych exam

Feb. 6th, 2007 | 11:01 pm
posted by: mildred_strange in mildreds_dreams

Last night I dreamed that I was taking my psych exam. It wasn't in a lecture hall like they usually are, but in a gym, with rows of desks set up, a la high school exams. I sat down, a little late, but I knew the material, so I figured I was fine. I then realised that the person in front of me was high school Nemesis/former best friend, K. She saw me, and started moving her chair back, which pushed my desk toward me, leaving not very much room for me. I tapped her on the shoulder to ask her to not do that anymore. I told her that there was only 6" between my desk and the one behind me. She said she really didn't care. So I decided to show her what 6" looked like, raising both middle fingers (my middle finger is exatly 3" long). She told me I was very immature, and I told her I wasn't flipping her off, and put my finger tips together, to show what 6" long looked like. I got up to let the intructor know K was being a bitch and that I couldn't concentrate on my exam. When I got back to my seat, a lot of time had passed, only leaving about 20 mins to answer all the questions.
After the exam, the scores were posted instantly. I got 62% and K got 95% (that's the story of my high school career).
The class decided to go have lunch, and we went to a restaurant called "moms", with a hot pink sign. Actually, all the places in the plaza were called "moms convinience" or "moms pets", and they all had the same signage. there was a take out counter, and the menu all looked good, but it was really pricey. The class decided to sit down because it would be cheaper. The only problem was that it was all seafood, except for a small portion which was in cross-word puzzle form. I wasn't wearing my glasses, and I couldn't figure out any of the cross word puzzle clues, so I had to go up to the waitress and ask what everything was. K, of course had already ordered, because she's a fucking superstar.

Alright Freud and Jung, what does that dream mean?

Tim Burton/Costuming dream

Nov. 21st, 2006 | 01:39 pm
posted by: mildred_strange in mildreds_dreams

I'm at an event, I'm not sure what it's for though, but I learn that TIm Burton is there. It's one of my dreams to work on one of his films, so I hem and haw over whether I should give him my business cards. Finally I decide that I've got nothing to lose and I go and sit at his table. I tell him that I admire his work and that I've always wanted to work on one of his films, and I hand him one of my cards. He takes it, looks at it, looks at me and says "I don't know what to say". I ask if that's a good thing or a bad thing. he tells me this "You come up to me, out of nowhere and hand me your card. Who are you, are you a designer, are you a stitcher? Are you even union? What is this?!" I reply by telling him that I'm not in the union but that I've been trying to get in, and that I don't feel I'm advanced enough to be a designer, but that I'd be honoured to even be stitching on one of his movies. He basically tosses my card back at me and tells me to get lost.

Then I got really drunk! Yay!

dream about Katatonia

Oct. 7th, 2006 | 10:38 pm
posted by: mildred_strange in mildreds_dreams

I had a dream a few nights ago about the Katatonia concert we're going to this month. Dan had ordered a bunch of stuff directly from the band, but ended up returning it and had never recieved a refund. We decided we'd stay at the same hotel as the band, which was also where they were playing. The only problem was there was only one bathroom in the place. As I get getting ready for the evening, I was having a bath, but people kept coming in to use the toilet. One of the people was the show promoter. I asked him if he could arrange a meeting with Katatonia so Dan could get his money from them. He told me that he actually didn't know what the band looked like, so I'd have to try my luck with talking to them. Finally I was able to get out of the bath, after having two of the bands use the bathroom to get ready, and it was too late for me to get ready with the outfit I'd picked out. I was going to wear my military corset and PVC kilt, but ended up just tossing on a T-shirt and some skirt. We didn't end up meeting them to get Dan's money, but at least I woke up knowing what I was going to wear to the concert.

parent dream

I had a dream last night that my father needed a kidney transplant, and I was the only match. The dream never got around to the actual operation, but there was a lot of sitting in dr's offices, and worrying if my tattoos would be damaged in the process of removing a kidney.

I'm going to call my parents when they get home from work, just in case.

two dreams, mildly work related

Aug. 26th, 2006 | 12:44 pm
posted by: mildred_strange in mildreds_dreams

The first dream was about Richard, the guy I so stuff for MAC for. In the dream he owned an island near Vancouver Island. It had 7 victorian mansions on it, all of them his. He needed my help painting them, so he flew me out there to help. While we were there, his mother was also there. Richard had also brought his new boyfriend. When they walked in the room I asked "is this your new boyfriend", to which his mother's reaction was "What?! You're gay?!". I turned and said "yeah he is, both your children are" (this is a fact, his sister's gay too). She had a mild freak out. Thankfully Richard wasn't mad. He figured after 50 some odd years his mother may as well know.

The second dream was another book store dream. I was at the computers helping people print out their book lists. The first couple people I had didn't have their course lists, and didn't know the course codes, so I couldn't help them. finally I got to help someone with the course codes. The list was really long, and I didn't have my glasses, and in the dream my eyes were much worse than they are in real life. After a bit, she asked me to help her pick out back to school clothes. I figured my eyes needed a break, so I began going through the clothing racks that apparently were there. she picked out a huge stack and started trying them on. She rejected almost all of them, which I had to put back right away, being the good clothing sales person that I am. When we went back to the computer, half her classes weren't listed in the computer. Not a fun dream, and rather stressful.
