Getting Thrown To Another City And Becoming Sandra Oh?

For some reason I thought that I had already typed my dreams today, and so now I am typing this late.

I fell asleep on a couch until after 4 AM and then I got in bed without recording any of my dreams, before all of this I took some apple cider vinegar for my stomach because something I ate was bothering it, and I should have taken some more before going to sleep because I felt that I possibly needed more but I incorrectly assumed that I was just too full and would be okay.

Dream 1

The end of this dream took place during the day and I was probably inside my parents house, and I called my former substitute teacher Mrs. F to order some food because in this dream she sold food that she would cook or something from her house or from a small storage building or food stand so I wanted to give it a try.

Mrs. F answered the phone and she told me that she was gone somewhere so she was not there to cook, that she needed more ingredients to cook the food, that the ingredients were expensive, and that she would possibly need a ride to get the ingredients before she could cook my order.

I wanted to just wait until she gets back later and has everything that she needs to cook, and I went to tell her but I guess she could not hear me and she started saying something like she thought that I had ended the call and was going to leave to Japan.

I went to tell her that she was wrong and that it was one of my brothers who was going to be leaving to Japan and that I did want to buy some food later but she could not hear me, and she hung up the phone.

I decided that I would just call her again later or something, and then I think that I went outside in the yard near where the dogs should be so that I could find the bathroom because I needed to defecate or something strange like that which makes no sense because I was inside the house which has a bathroom so I have no idea why I would leave outside to go look for a bathroom?

Something strange happened that I can not remember where I somehow got thrown through the air all the way to another city and maybe even country that was possibly a fictional version of the town of R.

I landed in a crowded field of people with mostly light-color skin on a hill where a city event or something was taking place with local citizens sitting on the grass et cetera watching and listening to various activities and screens et cetera, and somehow I survived and was not injured by a fall from the sky after getting thrown from the city of D to another city which makes no sense.

Maybe no one saw me land from the sky, and sitting on the hill behind me I saw a somewhat older male sheriff with dark-color skin wearing a cowboy hat who I had seen earlier in the forgotten parts of the dream in the city of D even though he was probably a sheriff in the town of R or whatever city this was and he was flirting with a woman with light-color skin away from the crowd not paying attention to the event (he also did not notice me fall from the sky) even though he was probably supposed to be on security duty.

I brushed myself off (possibly slightly wondering how I survived the fall without injuries and / or I possibly slightly knew or felt that I would survive like maybe I had superpowers or something) and then I walked across the field past the crowd of people to a modern multi-story building to find a bathroom because I still needed to use the bathroom, and I walked inside the building and I remember reaching an upper floor and walking down a hallway that I had glass walls where I could see the event in the field still.

A boy with light-color skin walked past me headed to the men’s bathroom that I was going to, and once inside the bathroom I was surprised by how large and clean and unusual the bathroom was.

The bathroom looked like a very large hospital bathroom or something with stairs and / or slopes down to another floor of the bathroom that possibly had showers / tubs et cetera, there were small openings that led down to those areas, and the first floor was mostly sinks and mirrors and a few other things like maybe some toilets or something else with shower curtains instead of stalls so there was no much privacy so I tried to find a toilet and one with some privacy.

I was not having much luck in my search when I suddenly realized that I was not myself anymore and that maybe I was wanted by the police or that someone who looked like whoever I was now was wanted by the police, somehow I was now a woman with light-color skin with long curly black hair and I looked a lot like maybe Sandra Oh, and this confused me and I wondered how and when did this happen.

I walked out of the men’s bathroom to avoid being seen because I was magically a woman now which made no sense even in the dream, I hoped to avoid being seen by anyone since I or whoever I looked like now was possibly wanted, but several people with light-color skin (a father and son) saw me.

They suddenly recognized that I looked like the person who was wanted so they approached me and accused me of being that person, and they yelled for the police / security and a male police officer or security guard ran over.

They started to accuse me of being that person, besides my appearance being different now I also spoke different so my accent and voice was even different, and I decided to use this to my advantage and I argued with them pretending to be from a different country so I pretended to be a stereotype of an annoying entitled American citizen.

I tried to build my case by saying that I was from a different country, that my accent and voice is different from the person who is wanted, and that maybe my appearance and maybe even gender / sex is different from the wanted person so how could I possibly be that person.

Something happened that I am unclear about, it is possible that I had the ability to mess with their minds using illusions (genjutsu) or mind control or something where I possibly made them see me with a different appearance and / or I shapeshifted to another appearance, or I just managed to successfully convince them that I was not the person who was wanted thanks to my annoying entitled American act and so they let me go.

But I woke up suddenly, and in the real world I felt that something was not right and I realized that my stomach was still bothering me and that I really did need to use the bathroom (so that is probably why I needed to use the bathroom in my dream, and why I could not find a toilet that I was comfortable using) and that I would have diarrhea so I ran to the bathroom and I was correct about having diarrhea.

After letting all of that out of my body I felt a lot better, and I went back to sleep eventually.

Dream 2

The end of this dream started inside a fictional version of The BP Library and I was at work, somehow this was in a fictional city and I worked here but I did not live here, and the building was a multi-purpose building so there were other parts to the building that included a hotel and office building / shopping mall-like areas.

I needed to use the bathroom (urinate) so I went to use a men’s bathroom that I had went inside of earlier in a forgotten part of the dream, I saw my supervisor Mrs. JM walking ahead of me into an area next to a bathroom, and then our director Mrs. EC walked in behind her.

I walked into the entrance of the room to peek in and it looked like a larger nicer fictional version of the media room, I assumed that they were about to get ready for an event or something, and so I walked inside the bathroom to the left of it that was to the right of the entrance to the hallway that led to the other areas of the building.

The bathroom looked different from the men’s bathroom that I went inside of earlier in a forgotten part of the dream, I did not see any urinals, and so I assumed that this was probably a women’s bathroom so I quickly left.

I looked at the outside of the door to see what it says, there was a name plate or whatever for the text and / or image, but there was no text or image to let you know what kind of bathroom it was so I walked down the hallway to find the men’s bathroom from earlier or any men’s bathroom.

I found one or more doors that looked like possibly bathroom doors but they also lacked text or images, and so I kept walking until I reached the front desk of the hotel that was near the entrance of the building and at the beginning of the hallway.

Some people (a woman and some of her family) with medium-to-dark color skin I recognized from the city of D were at the front desk of the hotel trying to get rooms, I probably greeted them and I turned around to keep looking for a bathroom, and then I saw a man walking by who looked like my former male classmate AP so I greeted him as AP.

The man looked at me in confusion because he was not AP, and so I apologized and I kept walking.

Suddenly people slowly started to show up near and on a hallway in the middle on the left side that was shopping mall / office building like, I forgot to mention that the hallways were carpeted, and I saw my mom pushing my nephew CC in a shopping cart so I greeted them.

They turned on the hallway on the left side briefly and they accidentally knocked over some items on a shelf again the wall of a shop, oddly no one was near these items so I am not sure who you were supposed to pay to get them or who would stop you from stealing these items, and so I started to pick them up.

My parents and my nephew CC were briefly staying in this city to visit me (even though I only worked there and did not live there), maybe they were going to leave soon and were shopping and visiting the library, and they walked off as I picked up the stuff that they knocked down.

Two men with medium-to-dark color skin wearing large T-shirts and do-rags started talking to me as they stood behind me, I guess they made sure that people kept a distance as I cleaned up, and I remember them asking me if I lived in the city and I told them no but that I worked here.

After I finished cleaning up I thanked them, then a homeless-looking man approached me asking me if he could have those items that I had cleaned up, and I said yes at first but then I quickly corrected myself and told him that those items probably belonged to someone who was probably selling them so he would have to ask them and then I walked off as it seemed that he was going to take them anyway but it was not my problem and I needed to use the bathroom still so I walked further up the hallway to find a bathroom but I woke up.

In the real world I really did need to urinate, and so that is probably why I once again dreamed of needed to use the bathroom.

Mary And The Witch’s Flower

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2017 Japanese anime (animated) fantasy movie Mary And The Witch’s Flower by Studio Ponoc.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this anime movie:

From Academy Award (R)-nominee Hiromasa Yonebayashi – animator on Studio Ghibli masterpieces Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo, and director of When Marnie Was There and The Secret World of Arrietty – comes a dazzling new adventure about a young girl named Mary, who discovers a flower that grants magical powers, but only for one night.

Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great-Aunt Charlotte and seemingly no adventures or friends in sight.

She follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years and only in that forest.

Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College – a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee.

But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try to set things right.

Based on Mary Stewart’s 1971 classic children’s book The Little Broomstick, Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping imaginative worlds, ingenious characters, and the stirring, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to find a place in the world.

Featuring the voices of Ruby Barnhill and Academy Award-winners Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I like the animation, that they surprised me by using British accents which is rare for anime to not have the English dub in American accents, that it was pretty consistent, that it was family friendly, and that it reminded me of several other animes; and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

This anime movie was probably a bit better than I had expected but it was not as good as it could have been, maybe because it was a bit too kiddy at times and the main villains were pretty much a joke when they should have looked and been more serious, and I think that more of the world should have been explained and that maybe they should have explored the great aunt’s story instead.

This movie will definitely remind you of a Studio Ghibli movie, and Studio Ponoc has the potential to have a bright future if they can improve their storytelling and the tone of their movies a bit; I would probably give this movie a 3.5 out of 5.

The end,
