Republicans Melt Ice Cream!

January 7, 2008-January 8, 2008 – I was making myself a bowl of ice cream: vanilla/chocolate with chocolate syrup and peanuts.  As I was making it, I could hear a message from a Republican woman.  Then there was another message.  It was from a friend of mine from high school, who was saying that even though she had always been a Democrat, she was now becoming a Republican.  When the messages were over, my ice cream was all melted.

Feral Running

January 30, 2009-January 31, 2009 – I was running through some streets on my hands and feet.  I didn’t have any pants on.  I was only wearing a shirt, with a blanket or towel covering me from the waist down.  I was trying to keep myself unexposed.  But there was hardly anybody outside anyway.  Then I took a moment to stretch and some guy riding his bike saw me.  Then I stopped, and I was back home.

June 28, 2009-June 29, 2009 – It was the morning of the day that I was leaving Australia with my family.  I had just gotten up.  I wanted  to get a workout in before we left.  I had gotten up three hours before we needed to leave, which gave me enough time.  I let Mom know where I was headed.  I was planning on biking, but without thinking, I started running.  My feet felt fine (despite a recent injury), so I just kept running.  I was thinking that at this point it was too late to go back and start biking, and my feet and legs still felt fine, so I continued running.

Waste of Gas

January 21, 2010-January 22, 2010 – I was switching the channels back and forth among a Lakers game on ESPN, the Cowboys-Eagles playoff game on NFL Network, and a Comedy Central show.  I had been watching them at home, but then I went over to watch them at my friend Walt’s house, or some house that Walt was at.  We were  planning on going to a movie at a theatre that I had never been to.  As I pulled up to Walt’s, I noticed a 6-auditorium theatre nearby.  From the outside, this place looked like a hotel.  I went inside and met up with Walt.  His family was around as well.  We went upstairs, where we finalized our plan for the movie.  Meanwhile, I continued to watch what I had been watching on TV.  The Lakers game had just ended, but there was still plenty left in the Cowboys game.  It was about 8:00 right now.  Someone else – a cross-country teammate of mine from college – showed up.  He came into the room and looked up some stuff on his computer.  Walt and I were ready to go to the movie now.  I was a little upset about missing the Cowboys.  Walt left first.  The theatre we were going to ended up being the one I had seen just outside.  So Walt had only just driven a few blocks forward.  I was standing outside my car, wondering, “So, we’re just supposed to drive a few blocks forward?’

Backyard of Horror

January 2, 2014-January 3, 2014 – I walked into my dining room the same time as my brother and Nelli the dog.  Nelli walked out to the family room and then walked out a back door that was past the family room back door.  I followed her out.  She ran off, while I remained standing by the deck.  When Nelli came back, she was sniffing at a pile of leaves.  I could hear maniacal laughing or screaming coming from there.  I found a doll that seemed to be coming to life.  There seemed to be every horror movie creature haunting the backyard.  There was a girl in a white dress walking across the yard in front of the basketball court.  I got a good look at her, and she turned and stared at me.  She had the face of a doll.  Then I was standing by my dad’s office door.  The dollface girl and a lobster were walking in my direction from the fence gate.  The lobster was screeching.  I thought about pulling the lobster apart, but then I worried that might be dangerous.

(NOTE: In my dreams, celebrities usually appear as conflations of themselves and the characters they play.  So if a dream takes place in a movie or TV show, then its characters are usually also the actors that play them.  There a few exceptions: animated characters generally are not counted this way, as they don’t tend to have this same conflated quality.  So, an appearance by Bob Belcher would not also count as an appearance by H. Jon Benjamin.  Also, fictional characters that have had multiple iterations: an appearance by Batman doesn’t count as an appearance by Christian Bale unless it is the version of Batman as played by Christian Bale.)

2013 may have been a down year for Community, but it was not a down year for the Community cast residing in my subconscious.  Alison Brie and Joel McHale tied for the top spot for the second year in a row, and the entire study group once again took slots 1-7.  And my subconscious also agreed with everyone else about adorableness, with J-Law placing highest among non-Community members.  Every entrant of 2013 follows:
