I had a dream that I was in NYC with Lori and we needed to go to Old Navy to buy a friend some smaller shorts. We went down into the subway station and she gave me $3 to use for a Metro Card. I walked away to look for the right machine, but everything was arcade games. I asked a cashier where a Metro Card machine was, and he told me that they had removed them at this location for more arcade games. I sat there at the counter for a while talking through my options aloud. The next cashier said "I can't do this for myself, but I love doing it for other people." and he handed me a 40 day laminated transportation pass with art that was a collage of Rockette transvestites.
I went back to find Lori who is having a rousing conversation with several people from Bloomington. I show her my new card and tell her I've just had the weirdest 10 minutes. We use our cards, but instead of getting on the train we start going down a set of spiraling steps that lead to a courtyard. Across the stairs a woman calls my name and says she has a missing persons case for me. I suddenly realize that I can make a living in NYC by being an amateur sleuth. I look up at the woman again, except now she is a mannequin. I start to walk back up but realize that everyone is turning into mannequins. I run down the stairs screaming cause I know that's the reaction they expect. I escape the area just before I wake up.

I had a dream that I was dating President Obama. We were living in a house on the outskirts of town with 3 other people. We had the bottom floor to ourselves. He had a year left as president and mostly our relationship involved me always being around for emotional support, it was very boring. In the dream it was late and we had just gotten home. Our roommates were watching a movie in the living room. I went down to our bedroom and saw that someone had stolen our bed and dresser. I yelled for Obama to see what had happened, but he didn't really care. Throughout the night I kept checking and parts of the furniture started appearing. I went outside and and saw the bed dismantled all over the carport. I woke up while I was deciding if it was worth it to try and reassemble.

I had a dream that I was at an art museum and one of the exhibits was called "Bears Elect Sex Toys to Government" and it was a small congressional chamber filled with Teddy Bears and Vinyl Blow-Up Care Bears. Everything was elaborately set up with each bear posed as if they were part of a larger discussion. I walked through the whole place and lost my shoes.
I had a dream that I was in a strange building of some kind of college. It had been remodeled by this woman who use to teach dancing and such. There was only one Women's bathroom and it was a big single with a vanity and carpeted floor. I needed a necklace for some reason so I went into this large gymnasium where men were fighting on a stage fashioned like an old weapon room. I saw many amulets hanging on the back wall and started on to the stage. I immediately stopped because didn't want to disturb the men who were running through choreography. I hung back to wait and there was a very muscular wrestler waiting with me. I joked about how I almost ran on stage to get a necklace. He tried to keep the conversation but I wasn't paying much attention. When I said I was just waiting on a necklace he handed one he'd just made for me. I thanked him a lot and rambled on about needing a necklace to eat food but I didn't know why. He thought this was very funny and not weird at all.
I started to leave and he asked me to meet up with him after his shift. I realized that the place was like a gladiator Medieval Times. While we were talking a fan came up for an autograph. He helped her for a minute then gave her a business card. He then turned to me then placed several business cards and cash in my hand as a bribe to hang out with him. I told him I had to leave, and as I turned he patted my ass.
I left feeling flattered but creeped out. I didn't really know why this guy was hitting on me so hard when I'm never hit on. I was skeptical. I walked over to the fancy bathroom and looked in the mirror. I was wearing way over the top eye makeup on and fuchsia lips. My skin was green because of a face mask I'd slept in but forgot to take off. I speculated that maybe he thought I was wearing a costume and liked that?
I was about to wash my face when people started trying to get into the bathroom. This little girl barged in, and I started to yell at her for being rude. I let people come in while I tried to pick up the spilled contents of my bag. An older lady sat down on some of my Magic cards and they scattered. The lady apologized and tried to help me find them. When I stood up we weren't exclusively in a bathroom anymore. I was sorting everything on a table and this nerdy guy was there asking me about my Magic deck. He was cute and I flirted a little, but I was distracted by sorting the contents of my purse. I pulled out the money from the wrestler and wondered if I'd ever see him again.
Now the table was outside on a sidewalk in late evening. I was surround by friends hanging out in the grass by street light. While I was counting the wrestlers money, the nerdy guy stripped down to his underwear and started grinding against me from behind. I freaked out and yelled at him. He got really defensive and upset at me, then ran across the lawn and sat in the grass. I decided to go talk to him about his behavior and help him to understand why it was inappropriate.
He was crying. I talked to him about the whole thing and it seemed like he understood, but was still really upset. Then I saw a pale grey dragon walk up behind him. When I turned the nerd had become an injured white horse. The dragon began to bite the horse, but then a white tiger appeared to my right and attacked the dragon. Everything animal had slow, careful movements and the blood was very muted. I walked back to my friends stunned by what I had just seen.

I had a dream that I was exploring an abandoned building with a few friends. The place was full of furniture and junk. I was getting creeped out until I went into a small room that looked like it belonged in a hospital. There was a young cancer patient there with her family. They introduced themselves to me and then told me that their oldest daughter just won ANTM. She was staring sadly at her sick sister and couldn't care less about winning.
I left the room reluctantly because everyplace else was bathed in darkness. I met up with one of my friends and we decided to just run around and throw stuff. Some how we were making certain things explode. It was very fun.
This next bit is a kind of fuzzy, but after I left I was contacted by the guy who owned the building. (This ends up being the actor Jeremy Renner) He said while he's been renovating lots of strange things have been going on. He wanted to know if I felt the same or if he was imagining everything. I told him that I did feel a threatening presence there. It was like a heavy weight on my chest and a feeling like I wanted to die. He asked me to check it out again and help him reclaim the space.
I went back and so much had changed. A lot if the junk was removed and old rooms were close to livable. The hospital room was gone and the place felt fine and free of negative vibes. I was about to leave when I looked into the living room area. Before it was really chic 70s with a long white couch and lots of gold and crystal. Now it was styled more like a grandma's den.
I stepped up to the door way because I heard voices. There were about five life sized dolls talking to each other. They stopped and looked at me. The grandma doll started to talk to me about her grandson Jeremy. She thought he was doing such a good job at bringing her house back. The other dolls agreed. As she continued to talk I felt at ease. I wasn't afraid of these spirits. I was happy they were here for him.
As I went to leave one of the other dolls got up to hug me. I felt him near my neck and shrank away, but he only wanted to whisper in my ear. He told me that I needed to help Jeremy and that he shouldn't give up on the house. He then made me promise to protect him. I did and then left.
Apparently I worked for the government and had to detour to a scheduled meeting before I could call up Jeremy. I was in a dimly lit room full of long tables set out like a cafeteria. I roamed around while people took their seats, but I couldn't find mine. I figured they sent my meeting invitation by mistake and sat in the back of the room.
I took out a one sheet about Jeremy and his property. I flicked on a special light that reacts with biological evidence. The paper was covered in specks of blood. I sat trying to process my day.
As the meeting progressed my boss came over to ask if I had anything to contribute. I told her that I think I was invited by mistake because there was no chair for me. She said something blaming the fact that they use kids to mail the invitations.
I tried to hid the paper from her, but she noticed it anyway. She wanted to know the story. I told her that I thought Jeremy was being set up for something and maybe she could help me figure it out.
We went back to her office and I told her the whole story. I think the evil presence was either vanquished by me the first time I visited, or it is being silence by the grandma spirit. As Jeremy returns the house to it's former glory she's getting stronger. But we can't decide if this is good or bad. What will happen to him when the house is finished? Also, I'm falling in love with him.

I had a dream last night that a bunch of punks were in town. I'm not sure if it was Plan-It X fest or just some other gathering, but our house was full of guests. On the second to last day this guy who was staying with us asked if he could get my number so we could keep in touch. He had red hair and was really mild mannered. He told me to just get in touch with his publicist if I wanted to, but that turned me off. The name of his band was something like Chance or Change.
Later that evening all the kids were talking and having really great good-bye moments while I started to get ready for bed. Moved by everyone emotion the guy came up to me again and asked if I really wanted to go on a date with him. I thought it over and said yes. He then told me that his publicist was going to get in touch with me soon. I was getting annoyed with this publicist thing, but I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.
The next day I was helping some kids find places in town. All the relevant punk businesses were on the same block and the block looked more like the French Quarter than Bloomington. There was a meeting going on at Boxcar Books so I took my charge over to Rhino's to get in line for the last show. I kept thinking about the red head and wondering if his publicist was going to get in touch with me.
I excused myself and decided to walk home, which was behind the "punk" block. The courtyard was full of people hanging out. My bed was outside and there was a note laying on top of it. As I approached I noticed Greg Clarke interviewing a woman who was making cute self-deprecating jokes about the note on my bed. Apparently it asked if I wanted to sing one song with the redhead before he left town. It was really charming, but I woke up before I could act on it.

I had a dream that everyone was afraid of "The Walking Dead Flu" pandemic, and they were going around shooting everyone who had it. It was a flu from the turn of the century, but it really got it's name from no one surviving it in the first place. I was running around trying to stop people from killing before "modern science" could find a cure. Most people were just afraid that they were going to turn into zombies.

I had a dream last night that I was staying in someone's country house by myself. There was a ghost tormenting the house and I had to fight her. She was invisible and I used my wits to find and force her out the front door. When she showed herself, she was milky white with long stringy grey hair and a horrible grey face. Her eyes were enraged and her mouth was stuck in an angry silent scream. Our fingers were laced together as I pushed her off the porch. I kept yelling "I forbid you from this house!" She paced on the lawn and I wondered what else I could say or do to keep her outside. I went back in to find my cellphone so I could call someone and calm down. When I saw my phone I woke up and my hands were frozen like I was still struggling with the ghost. I had only been asleep for an hour. What a creepy dream.

I had a dream that a bunch of celebrities showed up to my birthday party Saturday night. At first I saw Larry David and had a mini freak out in my heart. But I kept my cool. Then a bunch of athletes started showing up like Eli Manning and such. It was a mixed bag. After I noticed him I said loudly, "This is the best birthday. I love sports!" Then I got up the nerve to go find Larry David for a picture. While I walked around I saw Clint Dempsey in my back yard. I yelled after him and he gave me a hug then offered to call me after his next game. I told him how great he played during the World Cup and he should be really proud of his team. Then he asked me if he could ride dirt bikes in my yard with some other athletes. I said whatevs and told him I was gonna find Larry David because he is my absolute idol. When I went back in everyone was getting ready for bed. A bunch of celebs were bunked up in the living room on their blackberries in the dark. I decided to go to bed and not bother them.

I had a dream last night that I was going to a friends wedding in Ireland. In the dream I had history with the groom, but I wasn't trying to break up the wedding. Instead of them getting married it ended up as me getting married to my friend Jarod. At the reception I was ushered over to a table and walked through Jewish wedding rituals I had to perform. I was by myself and the woman showing me wouldn't actually let me do any of them. Instead she did them for me under the guise of keeping everything moving. Ginger came up to me because her coverband was about to play and it was time for our first dance. She wanted to start with Bad Romance and I told her it wasn't our song. She got pissy at me and I told her she could start after the dj played the right one. I couldn't find Jarod, and Ginger's band started to play anyway because people wanted to dance. The band began to play I Don't Wanna Get Over You. I decided he and I should dance to this and get it over with. Jarod found me and we went out on the dance floor. I complained about having to do the rituals with out him and he apologized.
