Restaurant and Earthquake

Last night I had a crazy dream that went all over the place. It began in a restaurant with some friends. We sat down at a table, but I got up to find the restroom. I went into this small room which I thought was a restroom, but after unzipping my pants, I looked up and realized I could see the patrons of the restaurant. The room I was in was a small alcove to put plants in. The wall in front of me rose up to my neck, opening up to the rest of the restaurant, and what I thought was a urinal turned out to be a pot for a small tree. I don't think anyone saw me so I just zipped up my pants again and went out the door to look for the real restroom.

Before reaching it, I recognized an old high school friend and greeted him. We made some small talk, but by now I really had to go, so I told him we'd catch up after I used the restroom. The real restroom, however, turned out to be very strange in its own right. It was uncommonly wide and spacious, and there were two other entrances to the restroom other than the one I used. One was apparently for kitchen staff use and the other seemed to lead into some kind of military operation control room. I thought I saw a lot of high-tech equipment and people in army fatigues, but the door was quickly shut. For some reason, there was a man in a suit in the restroom who told me I had to put my name into a sign-in sheet before I could go about my business.

But before I could do anything else, the ground started shaking. It was an earthquake, so I ran to the doorway like I've always been told to do. But I didn't stay long because this earthquake was intense. It felt like the building was coming down so I ran outside, followed by the friends that were with me in the restaurant. Upon exiting the building, the scene suddenly changed. It was no longer a restaurant, but a school building. I was no longer with my friends at dinner, but we were all back in high school. The earthquake was still happening though, and it brought the front part of the building down, right onto a former teacher of mine. Only a little bit of it fell on him, but it still injured him. There was no time to help him though, as the earthquake got even worse. The ground started crumbling away, opening into a seemingly bottomless chasm. The whole school was in a panic and we all ran for the parking lot as the floor kept crumbling away behind us. I didn't dare look back, I just kept running with my friend to his car.

It seemed like the earthquake had stopped and the chasm stopped opening even wider, so we all slowed down. Another friend mentioned something about wanting to go to Starbucks and headed off in another direction, but I still wanted to get out of there so I kept heading for the car. I never made it because I woke up, with a really bad urge to pee...

Flying and Tea

I had a short dream about flight superpowers last night. I'm not quite sure how it began, but I believe I was walking on the street with some friends. Suddenly I have the power to fly so I soar up into the air. I think I half-realized it was a dream, so while trying to control it I had a hard time staying in the air. I would shoot up skyward, but would soon glide back down as if I had no idea how to control my direction of flight. Furthermore, the ground would sometimes disappear and just become clouds, as if my mind couldn't render the ground as I moved at high speeds.

Eventually, I just decided to hover in place for a while, high up in the clouds. I had a thermos of tea with me, so I just relaxed in the sky while sipping tea. It was pretty sweet and then I woke up...

Indiana Jones and Comic

I had two dreams last night. The first one started out with me trying to remember the Indiana Jones movies. I could remember the first three and the latest one, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but I had a distinct memory that there was another movie made in between them. That is to say that there was a fourth movie and the Crystal Skull was actually the fift movie. I tried to piece together this forgotten fourth movie and enlisted the help of a friend. We could remember a scene in which two dark-skinned boys are kidnapped, escaped, and then taken in by an attractive 30-something year old woman. Later, the two boys, the woman, and Indiana Jones (and possibly Sean Connery) are in a tropical forest somewhere. They're fighting some evil force and there's also a frog that was a human wizard once and was turned into a frog or something. It got really confusing here and then I woke up.

In the second dream, I was reading a comic. I recreated the comic below.

That yellow arrow in the middle somehow meant that the comics could be read in reverse order, meaning you could read it from top to bottom, but also bottom to top. This sort of made sense in my dream, but it really doesn't make sense now. This is definitely the strangest thing I've dreamt so far.
