Kill Bill, but not.

So in the beginning of the first Kill Bill movie, there's a girl fight in a kitchen and the daughter of one lady comes home from school and they stop fighting while the daughter is in the room, just in case no one has ever seen it.

In this dream, I was just observing. There was a blonde lady, and another lady that had brownish-reddish hair.  The brown haired lady was trying to steal the other lady's identity.  Her plan to do this was to kill the blonde lady while her family wasn't around, dispose of the body, then leave a note for the blonde's husband & kid saying that she was leaving them.  Then she would just leave that city and move somewhere else, and it'd all work.

So the brown haired lady snuck into the blonde's house during the day.  Her house had some pretty awesome carpet- bright colors and really plushy.  And even though that sounds tacky and 90's, it didn't look that way, and came across as super fancy and nice.  Also, the walls of the stairwell going up to the 2nd floor were purple.  I liked it.

So she snuck in through the front door, and was going to sneak around until she found the blonde lady and then kill her.  However, the shower was running, so the brown-haired lady just went upstairs to the bathroom.  Cue fight sequence!  Brown-haired lady had a knife, and blonde lady was in the shower, but brown-haired lady underestimated the blonde!  She knew kung-fu or something, and it turned into an epic shower/bathroom battle!

Then the daughter came home from school, and the brown haired lady hid in the shower while the blonde told the daughter to go back downstairs.

I'm pretty sure that the brown-haired lady succeeded with at least half her plan (the killing part), but not the hiding the body and disappearing part.  I don't remember this part, but based on what I do remember, I'm pretty sure that's what happened.

Water tubing

In this dream, everyone (me, Jake, Keegan, Brent, Tyler, Lambert) were all at Sydney's for a beach trip.  Or maybe just for a vacation.  Or maybe there was some other reason to be there.  But we were there, and were kind of just sitting around the house not doing much, when Sydney suddenly demanded that we go water tubing down the river.  None of us were opposed or had better ideas, so we got ready to go do that.  But before we could do it, we ABSOLUTELY HAD TO go to the grocery store and buy a plant.  Like, I knew it was the grocery store in the dream, but it didn't look like one.  It looked more like if you took the outside plant area of Home Depot/Lowes and squished it all down into a much smaller area.

That's all I remember.

Tigers and dog-bunnies

So I have had a version of this dream before, where the tiger was present, but not the dogs.

Millie and Pinto (or Girl-Bunny and Bunny as you may know them) were in my dream, but they were dogs instead of bunnies.  Millie was one of those big really fluffy dogs, had similar coloring to what she really has, but there was more red.  She was also more outgoing in the dream than she usually is.  Pinto was like a yellow lab or some other dog that is smaller and has shorter fur.  He was just following me and Millie around.

Anyway, there was a white tiger in my backyard.  He just lived there, and typically was well behaved and didn't usually try to eat people or animals, just the food he was given.  But one day, he was trying to escape to go eat the neighbors, and so I had to coax him back into the backyard and into a shed.  However, the dog-bunnies were not very good at sitting still and were very excited about the tiger misbehaving.  They were bouncing all around, and I was trying to talk them into just sitting still, and had to more or less drag them to the shed to get them out of the way since Millie wouldn't listen to reason.  (In the dream, Millie could communicate with me using full sentences.  Kind of like in some movie or book where there's a spirit-dog type thing that has glowing eyes and acts as some other character's conscience.  I don't remember what movie/book, but that was what it was like.)

So I finally got the dogs in the shed, but the tiger was still out in the side yard, watching neighbors.  I started calling out to it to try and get it to chase me back into the backyard so I could lock it in until the vet came to make the tiger feel better and not want to eat humans.  But then I got him in the backyard and realized that the dogs were in the shed that I needed to put the tiger in.  So then I had to get the tiger to sit still while I convinced the dogs that they should really get in the fort where it was safer.  After I got them in there, the tiger started heading toward me, but wouldn't go in the shed and started chasing me, and then I woke up.  I hope I didn't get eaten.


In this dream I was just an observer.  Bambi and Thumper (from the Disney movie) were having a class.  Animals could attend and learn how to be a rabbit.  The lesson that they were teaching was how to thump properly.

Last weeek/week before:
This one was so super awesome.  I will not do it justice in this writeup, and for that, I sincerely apologize.  I also have forgotten more than half of it, which disappoints me, because this was one of the coolest dreams I've had in a while.
I remember part of the middle, and the end.  If it was divided up in fifths, I remember the third and fifth fifths, and maybe like, a quarter of the first fifth, but probably not even that much of it.

Quarter of the first fifth of the awesome dream:
Someone, I assume it was Jake (because he is in my dreams so frequently, I just assume he's the one showing me this awesome stuff) was driving me in a beat up blue pickup to a surprise.  There was a parking lot with room for maybe fifty cars, and many of the spots had utility trucks already parked in them.  There was a cliff face on two sides of the parking lot, the building ran along the third side (into the cliff), and then the fourth side was where the driveway and courtyard/front yard of the building was.  There was a nice little fence around some of the grass with a flag pole and some flowers in old casks.  The building was mostly corrugated aluminum.  The surrounding area was farm land, so there were some cows hanging out.
We walked in the front door.  There was a guy at the reception desk, he was friendly looking.

And now I don't remember stuff.

The next thing I remember from it, I'm alone in a hallway that doesn't have any doors.  I'm pretty sure I was (yet again) being chased by bad guys.  So anyway, at the end of the hallway (where it dead-ends), the floor is either super intricately tiled or painted in a circular pattern.  I stood in the center of it, and then there was fog/smoke on the ground, and then suddenly I was outside at the base of the hill behind the building from earlier in the dream.  It was rainy and muddy, and water was cascading down the hill.  I started walking (trudging really) along the bottom of the hill to get to a part that didn't have water pouring down it to walk back up.  

Then there's some more not remembering-  I have a vague recollection that I wasn't the only person on the muddy hill.

Somewhere along the way I lost both my shoes (got stuck in mud), but I finally made it to the top of the hill and the front of the building by the entrance.  It was no longer raining, and the reception guy was outside with a pitchfork waiting for me.  He made some remark about getting ditched or lost or something, but in a joking manner.  I kind of ignored him and just kept walking back toward the parking lot.

The end.

So I know that that description doesn't sound like it was that awesome, but when I woke up, I had that feeling of having had the most awesome dream ever... I guess I just remember the boring parts.

I need to be better at updating....

So, I know that reading lots of text gets boring, so I am going to attempt something similar to what Allie (of hyperbole and a half fame) in the future.  I'm going to grab my drawing tablet when I go home next, and will attempt to draw nice looking drawings of what my dreams look like.  They're a lot better if you could see what they look like, because usually I get one or two very clear scenes stuck in my head, and if I could show everyone how colorful and detailed they are, then that would be awesome.  But I'm not an artist, so they'll probably be pretty bad to start with.

Last night:
I had a dream that I was home for Christmas, but it was like two weeks before Christmas.  My brother was home from school, but it was during finals week, so he really had no business being home... seeing as how he should be taking finals.  So the first week of 'break', we kept telling him he should be studying for the finals, since he had them the next week, and he kept uncharacteristically telling us to not worry about it, that he didn't need to study for them.  The next week rolls around, and he's just sitting on the carpet playing with legos all week.  The rest of the family keeps asking him if he needs to go back to school to take his finals, or study, and he keeps brushing it off, all, oh, no, no, I don't need to study, they aren't till later in the week.  Later in the week he's still just playing with legos.  Finally mom & dad are angry and think he's failing all his classes and yell at him, and he's all 'SURPRISE! I TOOK THEM EARLY!'

Over the weekend:
I had a dream that I had planned a get-together with a bunch of people.  I had made a reservation at a nice restaurant for like twelve people, so it was kind of a big deal.  I showed up to the restaurant a little early with someone (maybe Ron? or some other tall, skinny male friend from home?) to check and make sure that they had our table ready, since twelve people is a lot.  The hostess took us to the table, which was in this really nice courtyard area, surrounded on all four sides by the building, wrought iron tables with burnt-red and gold-yellow colored umbrellas over them.  It reminded me of Italy.  We had two tables pushed together against one of the walls.  Me and Ron (just gonna assume it's him, since that sort of makes sense) sat down to wait for everyone else to show up, but no one else showed up.  The rest of the restaurant got full-ish, and then it started raining, and no one else came.  I was sad. :(


Last Thursday (I think):
I had a dream (got to think of a better way to start this) where Jake and I had made plans to meet up with some people at an ice cream parlor.  We got there earlier than the people we were supposed to meet, so we got some milkshakes and sat down at a booth.  Because of how the place was structured, the people we were meeting didn't see us when they came in and sat at the booth behind ours.  We could hear what they were talking about, and heard them mention poisoning us.  Apparently we knew something we shouldn't know, and they needed to get rid of us.  Jake and I looked at each other and silently agreed that we needed to get out of there without them noticing, and fast.  We slowly crept out of our booth and made a dash for the other side of the restaurant.  When we were halfway there, the people we were meeting (who I have a vague feeling were Jake's aunts) started shooting at us, so we took off running.  
I assume we lost them, but I don't remember the middle part where we got away, but I know this next part is part of the same dream.
It picks up with me in the car with my dad and Kevin, and I'm driving.  I'm ranting to them about what happened at the restaurant, so I'm distracted, and run a red light.  As I run it, I hear the woop-woop of the police car that is two cars back.  I swear, and pull up on the sidewalk on the left side of the street (one way street, two lanes, sidewalks on both sides, so only place to pull over is on the sidewalk so traffic can go around) to wait for the cop to make it through the light.  As I'm waiting, I pull out my license and registration to get ready for the cop.  When the light changes, the cop pulls up behind me, other cars honk angrily.  The lady cop gets out of her car, and I roll down the window.  Instead of coming up to the car, she starts climbing up the fire escape of the building I pulled up next to.   I wait a few minutes for her to do whatever she's doing (messing with traffic cams?), but she doesn't come down for like ten minutes, so I just drive off.  There was a lot of traffic, and I was still trying to escape/get away from the ladies from the ice cream parlor.
I feel like the area I was driving through was India or something, because it kind of reminded me of Aladdin- the clotheslines going across the streets between buildings, they're all kind of clay and steel, and things are colorful.  But it's the same city as the ice cream parlor was in, and I have no idea where Jake went.  The drivers seat was on the left, just like in America (not sure what side of the road they drive on in India, so maybe it's not India, since I've never been there).
