Had a dream last night, must have been immediately upon falling asleep, that a good friend was missing. Like kidnapped missing
. This is one that I actually considered a bad dream. Apparently she had been kidnapped a while back, and I just hadn't known.
Stupid modern communication being what it is, and living a few states apart, how was I to know? The really sad thing is, that if something really happened, I wouldn't know, much like in the dream. Same thing here, many of you guys would have no clue what happened to me if something did. It'd just be like "Weird, ol' loudmouth Gracie hasn't been blabbin' it up for a while now, that's odd."
Anyhow, I found out because I ran into some random news story that didn't even mention names, it was just talking about how "the search was still on, blah blah." I went somehow to look into it, and ended up speaking with a friend of hers who was more in the know that I was (because of geography). The entire story was fishy, because all the info was wrong. There had been a note discouvered at her place about how she had gone across the country to San Francisco to look for her son. But she has never had any kids, and wouldn't just randomly take off like that. If she'd ever admit it or not, she might be as much (or even more of) a shut-in than myself :P
Me and this 'friend of' whom I met got to discussing it all, and decided to take action. We were forming a search party to comb some wilderness areas and stuff. There was a mounting sense of horror and dread this entire time
, and it eventually woke me up in a panic.
I lay, worrying and unable to mesh reality in my mind for a bit, then I texted her, because I had to do something. When I woke up this morning, I had a reply that she was safely snuggling with her cat :) Although I'm not sure how 'safe' anyone could be with that wild beast about ;) <3
This morning before I woke up for real, I dreamed that my mom was driving a weird car around inside a grocery store. She drove it outside when she was done, and drove it around the parking lot. I was out there on "an assignment" following some people around. She drove up next to me, and the car was like a really ghetto low rider with hydraulics and stuff. She lowered it all the way down to the dround, and then below the ground, and it became the chalk outline of a car and she was sitting on the pavement.
I sat beside her, inside the chalk outline where the passenger seat would be, and the car raised back up above the ground and we were driving in it. It had all sorts of switched and levers, and I think it was steam powered somehow. I was complaining at her because she had started smoking abain. She informed me that she had also picked up the habit of "licking her food". To demonstrate, the pulled out a cheeseburger from a large paper pail, licked it, and then threw it out the window. Next, she did the same thing with a piece of chicken.
She gave me a ride to my place, which was a crumbling pile of bricks with one brick missing near the ground. I laid down and wriggled inside the missing brick area, and then down into a very narrow drain pipe. I went down until I hit a grate, and then pusted it out and kept going down, having to bust a grate out every so often. This went on for a long time until I finally had a huge pile if busted grates and pipes inside the tube / tunnel with me.
Eventually I got to the bottom and busted the last one out.
(I totally blame aesthetik_dekay
for this next part, BTW)I was looking down into a huge cavern, that had all my stuff in it, only it had flooded with water in some areas. Part of it was supposed to be water, but it was way way too high and up into the living area and getting on my stuff. I went down, and waded around. There was a kitchen area to the left, and it wasn't flooded. There was a woman in there, and I know she lived with me, but I dunno who she was. I was speaking to her from "off screen". She said "He's been missing you all day, go play with him." I said "But the water is too high, I will be eaten!"
Then, right from behind my waterlogged couch, a killer whale burst up. He was kinda small, compared to how big some of them are I guess, but he was bigger than me, and my wet couch, put together. He was demanding my attention like a hyper puppy, and I went to sort of pet him and stuff. He had 3 eyes on each side and was generally pretty scary. He was trying to tell me something, and I was just about to understand when I woke up because he was just TOO scary.
I did not consider this one a bad dream or even a scary dream at all. That one was awesome. I woke up and said aloud "What, NO OWLS?!" Then I went back to sleep.
_______ "so... the next question would be... what project can we start working on next and how many more of our names can we get up on imdb? drew - start writing a script. mark - start getting your biceps ready for camera arm. everyone else - practice ordering pizza and breakfast tacos!"
