Many crazy dreams...

First I dreamed that I was living at home with Mom and Jessie. A nuclear war had begun and the bombs had already been launched between us and Russia. (I think the reason was something Terminator based, that the machines had a mind of their own.) Mom had blankets ready for the three of us to hide under, because, for some reason, the blankets would keep us safe from the radiation. I kept pointing out all sorts of flaws to this theory, that WALLS wouldn't keep out radiation, so why would blankets? What about nuclear winter? The blankets were rather thread bare, so we would freeze! But was nuclear winter cold or just dark and "snowy"? I couldn't remember what I had learned. I remember the town we were in preparing to meet the blast and seeing the fallout start in the distance. As we all hid, I realized that we had made NO proper arrangements, that even if the blankets kept us safe, we would starve because the food would be contaminated. After the initial threat was over and we climbed out from under our blankets, I looked around at everyone in the town, knowing that humans needed a culling of the herd, as it were, that there were too many of us. I just dreaded the next few months to a year, possibly having to watch my family die of radiation sickness, and wondering if I had it myself.

Later, I was walking the streets and came across an apartment of sorts that my family had once lived in. (One of those situations where I have never really been there in real life, but had lived there as a child in my dream.) I walked in the front door so that I could embrace whatever memories seeing the apartment again would bring me. The place was dilapidated - grime everywhere and paint peeling. I saw that there was about ten people living in this one bedroom shack, seeing all the pallets strewn around on the floor. I remembered that there was an upstairs and went to explore. One or two of the people living there looked up and asked who I was. I assured them I would do them no harm, that I just wanted to look, in order to remember. (Everyone else that lived there was gone.) I found the upstairs and realized that the place was so much larger than I remembered. I also found a hidden passageway in the back that would overlook the inside of a warehouse. I climbed out of the window there...

... and was standing on a wall, watching two men in airplanes race each other. Both planes were rather... odd in appearance, as if they had been designed without common knowledge of what planes should look like. They had just taken off from the ground inside the wall and I didn't think they would clear the wall. They both barely lumbered over and one flew off fine, while the other, golden, one faltered and fell off to the left and crashed into the building. I ran over and started digging through the rubble, afraid the rest of the building would collapse on me. I get to the plane and yell "DUMBLEDORE!! YOU'RE ALIVE!!" It was, indeed, Dumbledore, and he was barely alive.

I was then in green velvet robes of an interesting cut. There was an announcement to be made, so I had to get to the livingroom. I was in the girls room and saw everyone around me in similar robes. As I walked to the meeting area, I passed Harry Potter in the hallway. "My, he's growing up to be a handsome lad!" I thought to myself. He gave me a dirty look. I sat on the couch in the living area, seeing a boy with long dark hair sitting on the floor. He kept scooting one direction, to be followed immediately by a girl. I could see that he didn't want anything to do with her, so I got up and sat between them. He shot me a great look of gratitude. A very short haired Snape walked in and said that because I saved Dumbledore's life, we get the house cup!! Along with the cup, he handed me a free copy of a book that he had written, something about travels in Egypt. He snapped that I had better read it, if I knew what was good for me. (Upon waking, I thought about the dream. No, I wasn't in Slytherin. I think I was in Hufflepuff for some reason.)

Must be. I had lots of wakefulness in between, I remember waking up a lot and rolling over and then either something drastically new occurring, or a semi continuance of the dream before.

You always remember your dreams so vividly. I'm jealous. I only kind of remember mine. Once in a while I'll remember like ten seconds of it vividly. I had a really strange dreams last night (this morning) maybe I'll write it down too.

You really should, it makes me laugh to no ends at times when I go back through the ones that I've posted!

My dream rememberances come and go - I go through periods where I remember every sensation, and periods where I just get the general.. emotion... following me through the day. That SUCKS, when it was a particularly stressful or sad dream that I can't remember, but that has me feeling off the day afterwards.

I remember some dream making me feel really upset for days once. I know exactly what you mean. I did read about a dream in one of my old journals and I was like "wtf, what a lame dream to remember."

I can't tell you how many dreams I never write down because they're silly things like working for the entire time that I'm sleeping, UGH.

omg when I was working for the bank I'd constantly have dreams of working on the teller line doing transactions. Then I'd wake the eff up because my brain be like "omg you should be paying attention to what you're doing and not sleeping!!!!!"

Sucks.

LMAO, hilarious.

Thankfully, this back to school season, I haven't dreamed much about work, though I usually do because of how hectic and repetitive it is. I can only remember one, where I slapped stickers on stuff with the clearance gun, after spending HOURS doing it the day before.

I've been pretty lucky. I haven't really had a job like that since. My job before this one I used to look at error claims in my sleep...and again would wake up because my brain would start working. ...it normally doesn't work apparently

Well, it's actually logical. They weren't just blankets -- they must have been blankies. Thus they could protect you from anything. *nods*

This is true on SO many levels.

*giggling* what an odd, and somewhat horrible brain dump! I haven't had a lucid dream that I can remember in quite some time. Thanks for sharing it. It' got my WTF gene woken up well. *grin*

Looking back at some of these dreams, it's amazing that I DO have giant, long, vivid dreams like that. I'm going through a period right now where I just wake up with glimpses and emotions of what I dreamed of the night before.
