Money For Nothing

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Money For Nothing, and this is what it said:

If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living.

Describe your ultimate job.

If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love?

What fulfills you?

If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

And this is my response:

I think that the Daily Prompts have been getting a bit too personal sometimes, which limits my responses, and so once again I will not be able to say much in my response; and so I hope that they will tone down the personal questions a bit.

I simply would like a support type job working in the background where I do not have to directly deal with other people much or at all that I can at least somewhat enjoy and at least somewhat be good at and that I can handle (mentally, emotionally, socially, and physically), that offers a good and safe working environment (physical and social et cetera), shorter work periods and enough holidays and vacations, that would allow me to at least support myself and my family on the basics (food, water, shelter, utilities, education, health care (physical and mental and emotional), money, recreation (social), safety, et cetera), and that would allow me to help others and the world in at least some way instead of making things worse or instead of helping keep things worse.

A Gang Of Living Toys And Other Beings?

I only remember part of a confusing and unclear dream from last night, I remember driving with my family to another city/state/wherever that was probably a fictional version of T, and we went to a hospital/apartment-like building maybe to see my grandfather or someone but I am not sure.

It was a multi-floor(ed) building with windowless hallways with dark carpet & walls & it was dimly lit, and we went to one of the rooms at some point which had carpet; but I can not remember this part of the dream, I just remember a jump in time in the dream and the room looked about the same but the floor was no longer carpet in the room, and I noticed this odd change & I mentioned it to my brother GC who was in the room but I do not remember his response.

The room had a computer and I was on it using the internet while talking with my brother GC, and at some point GC said that he was bored & he left; and then I left shortly after, but another jump in time happened again, and now I was outside of a cave-like place where I had gotten a job.

I entered the dimly lit cave-like place being led by one of the workers who was the man who walks through our neighborhood & sits on porches almost everyday, and he was the one who was going to show me my job.

It felt like we were underground in a hellish work environment with other poor people who hated their jobs & worked hard, I saw some people probably working in front of a hot furnace-like thing shoveling coal or something in it & they did not look happy & they were tired but working hard, and the worker brought me to a pan of blue liquid that reminded me of aftershave; and there was a cotton-like thing in the middle I think, and my job involved working with this liquid I think.

The worker showed me what to do, while doing this some people would come to get some of the blue liquid to put it on their cuts & stuff to help heal themselves it seemed, and Merlin from the BBC TV show Merlin was one of the workers who came to the blue liquid many times because he was very tired & had wounds; and there was another jump in time and Merlin came to get some more blue liquid but there was no more, and Merlin started to panic a bit in anger/pain/tiredness.

This work environment was like being in a working hell where you almost never see the boss who is like a devil-like character hiding in the background getting rich off of poor people working hard in terrible environments for little pay & no benefits & working long hours & with little to no breaks, and the entire environment of this place felt negative/tiring/hopeless/slave-like/et cetera.

I had no idea what the blue liquid was exactly but it seemed to be a healing solution that helped the workers keep working/survive and I had no idea where to get more, even though my job seemed to involve working with/dividing out/guarding the liquid, and so I had no idea how to help Merlin or replace the blue liquid; and so I tried to ask the worker who showed me what my job was, but there was another jump in time in the dream.

The dream gets real confusing & unclear at this point, but I think that a group of living toys & other non-Human beings came; and I remember talking with a female being and a male living toy, and I got along well with the female being & she seemed to bring positiveness to this terrible working environment.

I call some of the beings living toys because they looked like toys but they were alive, some were small but some were almost Human sized but most were smaller than Humans, and some of the beings probably were not living toys but random unknown beings like the female being probably.

I can not remember most of our conversations or what happened during this part of the dream, but I know that things were more positive when they arrived; but at some point a gang of living toys & other beings came to cause trouble.

I think that one of their leaders was an annoying living toy who was male with freckles with whitish colored skin with red colored hair who liked to trash talk, and they started attacking all of us; and a big fight broke out.

At some point I realized that this was a distraction, the gang of living toys & other beings had come to kidnap the living toys & other beings who had come before they arrived, the female being & the living toys who came with her used to be part of a larger group; but that group started to become negative once the annoying male living toy & some others took over the group, and so they left the group.

So the new leader or one of the leaders had come with his gang to kidnap them back but we did not know that until it was too late, and during the fight they kidnapped almost all the living toys & other beings who had been friendly to us; and the female being got kidnapped, which angered me, and I was going to go save her.

I think that one of male living toys with her had hidden during the fight, so he did not get kidnapped, and he showed me how to reach the hiding place of the gang of living toys & other beings; but he did not join me since he could not fight and Merlin was too tired & wounded from working to help either, and so I went alone.

In the wilderness there was another cave-like place where their gang was hiding underground, I entered the dark cave & walked through the dark cave until I reached a dark kitchen on the left, and the main entrance to the gang in front of me; and I hid in the kitchen behind the entrance to the kitchen when one of the living toys was patrolling on guard duty, and he came in the kitchen but did not see me standing behind the entrance in the dark.

A second living toy patrolled the kitchen and he almost saw me when he passed me, he stopped & said: “Huh, I thought I saw something, guess it was nothing.”  and he walked off; and I could hear one of the annoying leaders of the gang talking in the distance from the main area, and so I tried to figure out how to sneak past their gang and/or fight them.

There was too many of them to sneak past or fight, so the situation did not look good, but I was determined to save the female being & some of the living toys who had been kind to us; but as I was moving one of the other beings in the gang came to patrol the kitchen, and it was Freddy Krueger but he looked a bit tougher.

Somehow he saw me and we started to fight, and he was using his claw weapons; and I fought hand-to-hand & using things in the kitchen, and it was a good fight.

I got cut a few times and some other guards heard the noise and came to help him, I am not sure if I killed him or not, but I remember running to get past the security while they were distracted hoping to reach the female being & the living toys being held hostage; but I woke up.

The end,
