weird dreams last night involving people on my friends list that i never met

i was running a register at the edge of a beautiful clearing deep in the woods. faetal's wedding was going on in the background, but i tried not to get distracted. four or five people came through my line in a row that i knew from lj land, and i was calling them by their names (though other than the last one, i can't remember who they were). the last person to come up was just_monicat, so i greeted her cheerily "hullo, monica!" she was returning nickel creek's new album because she didn't find it stimulating. so i began the transaction, but every time i tried to complete it, the computer would go bonkers and try to return something like 500 nickel creek cd's. i felt like she would think that i was a complete idiot, although i knew what i was doing and knew it wasn't my fault. so i apologized profusely, completely embarassed. she smiled and said that it was alright, she had some flowers to smell, anyway, and that she would try back in a few.

so i raced off to find a manager to help me. the phone was ringing constantly, and i wasn't able to answer it because i was obviously busy. finally, i got so angry that no one else was answering the phone that i shrieked "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!? AM I THE ONLY FREAKING PERSON THAT KNOWS HOW TO ANSWER A FREAKING PHONE AROUND HERE?!?!" the entire cast of M.A.S.H. looked up at me from their card game and alan alda said something snarky. i said that we desperately need someone to take care of it, as my register is no where near a phone. thankfully, Lieutenant Worf stepped forward wearing a chef's hat and a dress to sullenly take up the task.

woke up with one of those AWFUL cricks in the neck that i get occasionally, though this time it's on the right side. ended up barely being able to crawl out of bed, i was in so much pain, so i called in sick (though i so hate doing so when i just sleep wrong, but egads, i can't lift anything up or lean forward at ALL, how am i going to run a bleeping register?!? sat and caught up on Lost episodes (OMG!!!) and a coupla sg-1 eps before going to take a nap.

i was in a shopping center, doing whatever, when "Discipline" (a song we did in my band in phoenix) came on the musak. suddenly, i jumped into a race car and sped down the highway around obstacles. it was exhiliratiing and terrifying at the same time, as i was convinced i would lose control at any time. but there was a quiet part of me that stayed calm and calculating as i veered around corners and other cars on the freeway that were crashing all around me. i eventually missed a turn, but cheerily stopped to talk to someone about their jump roping daughter. i was angry at myself for missing the turn, they had painted the route in dark blue paint on black concrete, so i knew it would be hard to see anyway.

i woke up feeling more confident in the life choices that i'm making nowadays. working two jobs and desperately wanting to go back to school is terrifying, but something i feel i need to do. driving in a dream, BEING the one driving, means being in control of your driving force in life. i felt that it had told me that i will be able to handle things to come a lot better than i give myself credit for.

now i'm sitting here with The Meaning of Life playing in the background. haven't had internet access all day for some reason.

went to the art museum for their grand opening of their new wing last night, and had great fun. i felt cultured when i left ;) i was inwardly squeeing like a school girl when i got to see TWO GIANT GENUINE monets IN REAL LIFE. ha ha. fantastic. going helped to inwardly motivate me to try my hand at painting.. anything. hell, if they can slap grey paint on four GIANT squares and put a plus sign on it and call it art, i'm sure i can do .. something. we were a bit rushed to get through it, as dummy me took too long of a nap and we left later than planned. i/we still have tons of tickets good until the end of next week, so if anyone local would like to go, i would love to go again....

That is a very good interpetation of your dream. I believe you're making the right choices as well. I envy your ability to have such strength and control over your life right now. Keep on this road, I know it will bring you "home."

And you get to be the first person to see my little dancing man icon.

i have no idea what's been wrong with me lately, though, i keep making all the WRONG choices, it seems. maybe it's my stupid subconscious rearing its head and getting in the way, like it tends to do, or dealing with so much, via my court date tomorrow (which i don't think i'm going to go to, i can't find the papers on it so i have no idea what time it is, nor do i have all the things together that they need...), mom in the hospital, etc.

my back is also kiling me and i can't find the wonderful pain patches my mom gave me to use. how DARE my brother clean for once?

court date? what court date? I should start reading your journal

I think that it was a court date for the Jeep people to officially start garnishing me, though since I took forever, I really have no idea. I'm quite certain that if I had a reason to go to court other than that, I certainly would have remembered.

Whoa, cool dream. The appearance of Worf in a dream can never be a bad thing....

Except when he says "Mmmm....It's a cellular peptite cake. With mint frosting."

i love dreams like that where it seems like every random person on earth makes an apperance, i.e. lj people i've never met, worf, the cast of m.a.s.h., etc. amazing how the subconscious works some times.

i really need to force myself to sit and EXPERIENCE those movies, fully. i am always doing something in the background during them and have still to experience them in their entirety.
