What Are You? | My Family Trying Out A House

Dream 1

The end of this dream took place during the day and something happened that I can not remember where I ended up going with a fictional young woman with light-color skin with short dark-color hair who somehow knew a family member of mine (maybe they were friends or dated or were classmates but I can not remember) to a house along maybe a pier-like area.

Somehow my family member who knew her did not join us and so I was left alone with this young woman who I did not really know, and at the house was most of her family (parent’s, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, et cetera) who all had light-color skin.

Her family was very relaxed and very unpolitically correct and my presence there did not effect / affect them at all, it was like I was not even there mostly, and they were having a good time and they did not hold things back when they spoke so they would say offensive things sometimes and things that many people would not say around guests.

Their family was very close and age did not seem to matter so family members of various ages all talked to each other, it was nice to see this, but I felt a bit uncomfortable and like an outsider.

At some point one of the young women in the family brought her boyfriend over who looked somewhat like the model Jeremy Meeks, he was introduced to the family, and I remember them asking him: What are you?

Because of his skin color and eye color and other features they were not sure how to classify him in their race system, and so they were trying to guess which so-called race(s) he was a part of.

I remember them guessing: “Part white, part black, and maybe something else.”.

He maybe replied: “I am not sure exactly, but I am guessing part white and maybe part black.”.

I do not believe in or support race or the race system (so I guess I am anti-race) so this bothered and annoyed me a bit and I felt a bit sorry for them as they struggled with this made up human categorization system that does not make sense or physically exist in modern humans as far as I know scientifically, and I started to prepare what I might say if asked and / or if I decided to share my opinion and the current scientific opinion on race.

I practiced my response in my mind but I am not sure if I got to use it or not, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The end of this dream took place at a fictional house that was possibly partly inspired by The E House in the living room at least, and it took place during the evening or night at the end of the dream at least.

An earlier forgotten part of this dream took place outside, and I saw at least one puppy outside a fenced yard.

Most of my family was inside this house except for probably my brother CC and his family, and I was in a bedroom with the door open sitting at a desk on a computer multi-tasking with my back facing the open door.

I got to talk to some of my family during this and at some point when my mom was walking past my door a bunch of tabs (web pages) inside my browser opened up of pornographic images, I remember at least one of them being of the PA MR, and I remember quickly exiting out of them and my mom did not seem to notice as she walked by saying something.

I did not know how that had happened, after dealing with this I decided to take a walk, and eventually I went outside to see the puppy from earlier in the forgotten parts of the dream and another puppy who seemed to be trapped in a fenced yard so I walked over to let them out.

The puppies followed me through an open side gate that was already open so they probably had entered the yard from there but then did not remember the way back out, and so I closed the gate to prevent them from getting back inside.

Outside the side of the yard was a slightly raised area with some kittens, some baby rabbits, and now the puppies and they all were playing together to my surprise.

It was a very cute scene and all of them let me pet them, this brought a smile to my face, and then I walked back to the house and I went inside.

As I was walking through the living room, which had brick walls that looked like The E House bricks and was rectangular and mostly open, I heard and maybe slightly saw the actor Vin Diesel in an open bedroom possibly across from the kitchen with a woman.

I then saw my coworker Mr. JF in his wheelchair coming from a hallway through the living room like maybe he was going to or from the bathroom or kitchen, I greeted him, and then he continued to another room not far from where Vin Diesel and the woman were and I heard Mr. Diesel complain and tell the woman: “It’s that guy again.” like they did not like my coworker Mr. JF and / or like he was interrupting them again so they stopped to wait for him to pass by and my coworker Mr. JF made an annoyed facial expression like he heard them talking about him and he continued in his wheelchair.

The lights were on in the living room so I tried to turn them off but the light switch did not turn them off, I tried pulling the cord on the lights but that failed as well oddly, and so I decided to make sure that the curtains and windows were closed at least.

I then noticed that two of the curtains were torn so you could see outside the windows, and so I went to tell my parent’s about this.

My dad told me that this house was being sold by someone they knew who I can not remember, maybe Mr. E, and that someone else was possibly interested in buying it but they did not want anyone moving into this house which was near our house I assume so they were pretending to be interested in buying this house to hopefully prevent the other person or family from trying to buy the house.

Our family was being allowed to live at the house for 1 month to see if we want to buy it or not, and so my parent’s planned on wasting time hoping to get the other potential buyers to think that we were buying it or had bought it so that they would hopefully give up.

I was surprised by this because this is not something that my parent’s would do, especially my mom and I possibly said this, but it was a pretty smart plan.

I did not want anyone moving in near us either because I enjoyed the quiet and privacy but this was wrong morally in my opinion and I said so, but I was not going to stop my parent’s because part of me hoped that their plan would work while part of me thought that it was wrong.

I also considered the possibility that we would actually end up really wanting to buy the house, if so, then this would be legitimate and I would not feel bad about it.

But I woke up.

I have no idea why Vin Diesel and my coworker Mr. JF were there exactly but my wild guess is that Mr. Diesel was possibly associated with being a family member because I have had one or more past dreams where he was my cousin so maybe that is why he was there, and maybe my coworker Mr. JF was there because me and him are going to be roommates during our work trip to the city of NO later this year for a library convention.

10,000 Spoons

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called 10,000 Spoons, and the prompt was:

…When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate.

Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic.

This is my answer:

Here are the full lyrics to the song Ironic by Alanis Morissette and the music video for the song since the prompt lacked this for some strange reason:

Here is my stanza(?) / verses for that part of the song:

It is like ten thousand German Marks right after World War II

It’s meeting the woman of my dreams

And then realizing it’s a dream

Is this ironic, what do you think

Maybe somewhat ironic, but I don’t know what to think

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that the beginning of the dream took place during the day outside in maybe a fictional version of the city of D (maybe in the shopping center near W Park, but I can not remember) and it was like the video game Fallout 4 because I was able to customize/craft things in the dream world using the workshop from Fallout 4, which is part of the new crafting system, and so I remember adding and removing and moving and changing and building things in the dream world like when you are building/customizing settlements; but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

During the next part of the dream I was waiting during the day in a parked automobile in the parking lot of the shopping center near W Park, I was parked closer to W Park, and I was waiting on my dad who was inside a store where N Auto Parts should be.

At some point I saw what looked like my dad possibly robbing the store and maybe taking someone hostage, which made no sense but it somewhat looked like that, and it seemed that my dad was going to run from the store and jump in the automobile with me to escape.

I hoped that this was not true because I did not want to get involved with this and end up getting arrested, and I hoped and assumed that I was mistaken by what I thought that I saw; but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream unfortunately.

The next part of the dream involved me seeing maybe a video or news story about a somewhat older man with whitish colored skin with dark-colored hair who wore glasses, I think that the man was maybe a well-known scientist and they mentioned his name and I recognized his name but I forgot the name after waking up unfortunately, and this man was from somewhere in Europe (maybe Norway or Switzerland or Austria or Sweden or Denmark or somewhere like that); and it talked about how he had joined a religious group or cult, and he ended up becoming a high-ranking member or the leader.

There were some scientists and other people who did not like this and they probably saw the man as an embarrassment to science after he joined the religious group or cult, but the man became very popular with some people around the world because the man and his religious group or cult would often help people.

They showed a video clip of the man wearing Catholic priest/Catholic Pope-like clothing and a tall decorative maybe whitish colored hat with goldish colored patterns and/or jewelry on it, and he was walking through the streets in a city that was maybe somewhere in South America; and many people who were mostly poor were walking with him and cheering in excitement as he walked through the city like he was very well-respected by the common people, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it started during the night in my parent’s yard when I was walking around outside on the wooden board near the back door, and I saw lights on in the kitchen of The G House which is unusual; and I saw my male cousin DE through the window in the kitchen, he probably saw me and he turned off the lights, and then he walked into another into the dark so I could not see him.

I walked closer and I noticed that the back screen door of The G House was somewhat opened and an air conditioner that was mounted on the door is what was causing the screen door to stay partly open, I walked over to the back porch of The G House for a closer look, and I saw some curtains that were not there before on the back door and on some of the windows; and it seemed that my cousin DE was trying to use the kitchen as a bedroom and/or living room and/or he was finally using the kitchen.

The door did not seem to be locked so I tested this to see if I was correct, I was correct and I closed the door back like it was and maybe I locked it first, but my cousin DE heard the noise and he walked over to investigate; and so I ran and I hid in my parent’s yard so that he could not see me, he did not see me, and then the dream jumped to the next day.

The next day I was walking outside in my parent’s yard near the back door again but this time during the day, then to my surprise I saw the police (male and female) raid The G House, and so I walked over near the back porch of The G House to see what was going on; and several police officers walked on the back porch, my cousin DE was not there surprisingly, and so now the other police officers were still searching the house like they were looking for something and/or someone.

An unknown maybe somewhat older woman with maybe brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair walked over near the back porch crying and two female police officers (one had whitish colored skin with maybe yellowish colored hair, but I can not remember what the other one looked like) went to comfort her, and then they started walking her to the alley by my parent’s yard for some unknown reason so I opened our wooden gate in the alley by the pet cages for them.

One of the female police officers walked the woman in our yard for some unknown reason and they kept walking, but the female police officer with whitish colored skin with maybe yellowish colored hair wanted to look at the pets and maybe hold some of them; and so I showed her some of the pets, and we started with the pet cages with rabbits in them.

There were some baby rabbits in one of the cages and we found one of the baby rabbits on the ground alive and so I put it back in the cage, and the police officer wanted to hold a rabbit so I started to warn her about some of the risks and I told her how to hold them; but then she started to get scared, and so we waited for her to relax before attempting to pick one up.

While we were doing this there was a race happening on a fictional race track that was around the pet cages in the alley, there were several lanes on the race track and I had to move around to avoid getting ran over sometimes, and I noticed that there were some large whitish colored rabbits hiding in a nest that they dug under the cages; and so I was going to get them, but I had to keep dodging robots from the Fallout video games and maybe some pets and some other things who kept racing around the race track.

I remember doing a good job timing my dodges as I tried to get to the rabbits hiding under the cages, but I woke up while I was doing this.

A Fire In A Fish Tank And A Rabbit Cage?

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I only barely remember part of one of my dreams from last night, which took place in a dimly lit house-like building where my family & probably other people & I lived, and some of us were in a very long narrow living room-like room that stretched across the building & various hallways crossed it at different points.

I am guessing that it was night but there were no windows, but it seemed like night-time since I think that my family left to a hallway where our rooms were to get ready for bed at some point; and I stayed in the living room-like room to walk around & think.

My brothers had their large fish tank in the living room-like room next to one of their rabbit cages with rabbits, and one of the rabbits had baby rabbits in her cage.

At some point while I was walking around thinking, I noticed what appeared to be a fire starting in the fish tank like the pump or filter was burning, and the smoke from the pump-line was going in the water so it got so dark that I could not see the fish; and so I ran & I unplugged the pump/filter for the fish tank hoping to stop it & save the fish.

I was shocked & confused about what was going on & how it happened but then I noticed smoke & a burning glow coming from the rabbit cage near the baby rabbits, it was a small spot like when someone uses a magnifying glass to direct sunlight to burn something, and the smoke got worse & a small fire started; and I grabbed a cup of water from a bucket of water that my brother’s use to give water to the rabbits, and I threw it on the fire hoping to save the rabbits without drowning the baby rabbits.

I missed some of the fire on the back of the cage so I had to throw the entire bucket of water on the back of the cage, and I used a water hose (yes there was a water hose inside, oddly) to make sure that the fire was out.

All of the baby rabbits & rabbits appeared to have survived, and I stood there surprised & even more confused & I wondered how in the World did these two fires start at almost the same time or at the same time.

Some of my family must have heard the noise and they came to see what was going on, and so I explained to them what had happened; and at some point groups of people started to come through for an event or several events in the house-like building.

There were politicians, royalty, celebrities, workers, security, et cetera; and I remember my family and I talking with someone who gave us access to go to some of the restricted areas where the event(s) were talking place in the building & they invited us/offered something that I can not remember.

In one of the restricted areas I was standing near Mitt Romney & Ann Romney as they were greeting people at one event, they happened to move to where I was standing, but I am not sure if we said anything to each other or not; they had some of their workers, security, and other people there for maybe a fund-raiser or something, I am not sure; I was near them for a few minutes but I can not remember what happened exactly except for people talking, eating, drinking, standing, laughing, et cetera.

I saw various known celebrities and high level people during the dream, and at some point some of my family & I went into a room with who ever had invited us to the restricted areas; and we had an interview-like conversation, and he was asking us questions almost like job interview-like questions.

I remember telling him about the fires, about some of my past jobs, about some of my experience/skills, et cetera; but I woke up.
