I was watching TV just now and was reminded a dream I had last night. It involved eating sticks of butter. That's sticks, plural. More than one. They came in little snack packs, like string cheese. Except it was just made of butter. And I bit into it. And it was delicious. Then I woke up and felt fat...

Mom's Dream

This post is actually about my mom. She told me she had a dream recently about death and birth. The Chinese words for "birth" and "death" sound like the numbers 3 and 4, so that day she bought a lottery ticket comprised of numbers with 3s and 4s. She checked the winning numbers the next day and got 4 of them correct, winning $140. For some reason, she bought another ticket with the same numbers because she had forgotten she bought the first ticket, making the total winnings $280. She then tells me that her father once had a similar experience back in China, in which a late relative visited him in a dream and gave him some lottery numbers. I believe he won second prize with those numbers.

Maybe it's hereditary and one day I'll have a premonition about lotto numbers!

Star Trek on SyFy

I had another dream of an advance movie screening on TV, this time the movie being JJ Abrams' Star Trek on the Sci-Fi channel (or SyFy now). There was no digital editing like there was in my Watchmen dream, but the channel feed wasn't that great. The movie looked grainy and made the special effects seem rather dull, even though I was watching it on an HDTV. I was having a hard time watching it that way and I was also annoyed by the fact that I missed part of the beginning, probably the first 30-40 minutes. Even so, I kept telling everyone I knew to turn to the Sci-Fi channel and check out Star Trek, though I wasn't sure I'd keep watching it. I think I had to go to dinner or something, so I just woke up...

Zombies and Superheroes

I had another strange dream about zombies last night. It was actually quite interesting and fun rather than scary. The dream started off in some underground bunker, where the survivors of a zombie apocalypse were preparing for a counter-offensive to take back the surface world from the undead. It reminded me of the plans to fight back against the zombies in the book "World War Z."

Anyway, the weird thing was that I was a superhero. My main ability was flight, but I think I might have had super strength too. And I decided to reveal my secret identity during this time, though I wasn't exactly sure why. I think it might have been because it wasn't appropriate anymore to have a secret identity at this time of crisis, or maybe I could inspire the survivors by telling them who I really was. I can remember "standing" in mid-air above the survivors, giving a small speech or something about who I was before we all stormed out of the underground bunker to fight the zombies. I think I had a sword with me and was cutting off heads, but it got blurry around this point and I woke up...

Had another short dream last night. I dreamt that I woke up in bed and my lower canine teeth were hurting. So I went to the mirror to check them out and it looked like my gums had receded just for those two teeth. They were both very loose, yet they weren't bleeding. I even pulled the right one out after a bit of tugging and still no blood. But the tooth might have just snapped in half rather than coming out all together. I got freaked out like I always do when I have a dream about my teeth. Every single time I always think "Oh my god, this isn't a dream, it's real!" and every single time I wake up relieved...

Resident Evil Zombies

I've been playing a lot of Resident Evil 5 lately, so it's no surprise that last night I dreamt of zombies. I can't remember much of the dream, other than that I was scared and running a lot. I do remember, however, that these were actual undead zombies like in RE1-3, not like the ones in 4-5. I was awoken by a mysterious and hard poke to my ribs, but there was nobody in my room. My heart was beating crazy fast and I was in a cold sweat. It took a bit to calm down and go back to sleep.

Found Money and Walk Home From School

Last night I dreamt I found a 500 dollar bill on the floor. I was excited and put it in my pocket, but then I woke up and was like, "Damn."

I fell asleep again and had another dream in which I was back in high school. The dream didn't have so much to do with school as it did the walk home from school. Or, more specifically, the roll home from school. In the morning, my parents would drop me off on their way to work, but I took a wheeled office chair from home with me. I would leave it in a hallway or some corner and somehow it made sense that no one would think anything about the chair. When classes were over, I would go immediately to the chair, sit down, and just start kicking my way home. The ride was surprisingly smooth, as if the office chair wheels were big and smooth enough to traverse sidewalks. This happened two days in a row; no one bothered to ask me about the chair and I just happily kick-rolled my way home. On the second day I got back, I just woke up...

Shops and Watchmen

About two blocks from my house is a street with a small business area. It's about half a block long with offices and shops on either side of the street. But last night, I dreamt this area was bigger, at least consisting of the whole street, and much more popular. I was with a friend I hadn't seen in a while and we were looking for some lunch. He stopped in this small market that had a small Chinese restaurant in the back and ordered several things. The only thing that I remember, and the only thing that really made sense, were the eggrolls. He said he used to eat here all the time and had patiently waited for years until he could enjoy it again. I jokingly said that he lived only several blocks away and that he could have come by here anytime he wanted. But he corrected me, saying that he moved some years ago and was not in this area often.

The cashier asked what I wanted and I shook my head and told him I was good. Instead, I went out and wanted to try this other restaurant. It was kind of like a fast food place and the sign outside said something about "Japanese Penne Pasta". But the inside had nothing to do with Japan or Italy. Instead it was owned by Middle Eastern people. Their menu consisted of several bowls of ingredients that you could mix and match to your heart's content, but a lot of the items weren't in English so I had no idea what to order. To the cashier, I commented on the fact that I had lived around here most of my life, but had never actually tried this restauarant. But the fact that it was still around for all these years must mean it was pretty popular. He half-heartedly agreed and I asked him what he would recommend to a first-timer. He began saying some stuff, but this dream ended...

And another one began. This one was rather short and quick. I was watching TV and noticed that the Pay-Per-View channels were showing an advance screening of Watchmen. Except, for some strange legal reasons, all the costumes were digitally changed into something silly (or sillier, I guess). I can't remember most of it, but I believe the Nite Owl, or his sidekick, or both wore a clown costume. Which probably would have been more appropriate for the Comedian, but I don't remember what he wore. Dr. Manhattan was equally silly. I can't remember what his exact look was, but instead of being a buff-looking blue guy, he was skinny and ridiculous. That was about it for this dream. I don't think I wanted to watch the movie like this...
