THE GANG OF THIEVES

I often dream there's a gang of thieves trying to break into my house, through a door or a window. They're usually a group of adult men, but I can't see their faces very well because, although they aren't wearing masks, they're kinda shadowy.

I fight them back, usually with a big knife. It's a very violent situation. Usually the dream stops there, during the fight, so I've never dreamed they actually break into my house.

I still think I'd like to have a shotgun in those dreams. Would make the fight much easier!

Happy Halloween!

STARS AND PLANETS

I love photos of outer space. Planets, nebulae, galaxies, whatever.

In my dreams, whenever it's dark and I have a chance to look at the sky, sometimes I see those things impossibly close. I see Saturn on the horizon, for example, huge and beautiful, and it looks as if I could stretch out my hand and touch it. Sometimes there are more than one planet, and a zillion stars as well.

It's very much like those occasions when I see amazingly detailed buildings. I'm puzzled, and delighted. And again I wish I could take some pictures!!

THE PARROT

Last night I dreamed I was in my garden, and I found this lovely parrot hiding in my orange tree. It was green, with yellow and orange feathers on its wings. And it was quite friendly, too: I extended my hand, and it jumped to my open palm.

I petted it for a while. Then I got into the house to show it to my mom. After that, I told the parrot, "Okay, you must go now. Are you going to miss me?" The parrot said, "No." I laughed. "You're not going to miss me?" I asked, and the parrot, clearly joking, repeated, "No." I laughed again.

So, I went out and let it go. I hope it comes back some other day.

WEIRD PLAY AND AN EXPLODING CITY

In the first part of my dream, I was watching a theatre play with some other people. It was an open stage, all surrounded by water. I don't remember much about the play, but it was quite weird. A scene got stuck in my mind: there were a man and a woman in a boat, but the boat was sinking and only their heads were above the surface. They didn't seem worried about it, though.

In the second part of my dream, the city was kind of exploding from inside, sending big rocks into the sky which would fall down again like burning meteorites. There were fires everywhere, so we had to escape from there at once, though it seemed impossible. I joined a group led by a young bearded man, and we walked through the city avoiding the fires and falling rocks. Finally we reached the coast. It was a high place, and from there we could see that the rest of the city was mostly intact (there were only a couple of fires). The plan was to walk through the coast until we found a totally safe place.

I don't know if we succeeded. I woke up after that.

One thing that bothers me about this kind of dreams: I never hear the sound of the explosions! Should I call a technician?

ANTS IN MY BED

This is a recurrent dream, but it's been a while since the last time I dreamed it.

In the dream I'm lying in my bed, and the bed is full of ants. They don't bite me, but it's still a bothersome situation.

In real life I often have to fight some pesky ants in my garden, so maybe this dream has something to do with that. When I was a little girl, though, I was with a friend in the woods and we both sat over an ant nest. When we noticed, we were already covered with ants! Ugh! It took us a while to get rid of them (we even had to brush our hair), but at least they weren't red ants, 'cause those ones are really nasty.

So, perhaps my subconscious still likes to remind me of that day. A fond memory of my childhood... (well, sort of).

I WAS A SUPERHEROINE

Last night I dreamed I was in some sort of fantasy land, opressed by two supervillains who lived in a tower. One of them was a young, black-haired woman, dressed like a queen, the other one was a giant guy made of grey sand, with a very evil expression in his hollow eyes (creeeepy).

Those supervillains must be defeated, so I traveled with some unknown guy to the other side of a river, where we met a council of wise magicians. They turned me into a powerful superheroine, with a golden armor and blue wings. I looked quite awesome!

We returned to our land, then I had to fight a lot of enemy soldiers. It was a very violent and bloody fight, but I was so powerful that I knocked them all down, beating them with my fists and wings. Yay!

Then I flew to the tower, and pushed it until it fell down.

Really, it was a great dream. And it was MUCH better to be a superheroine than an unlucky Cinderella! :-P

UNLUCKY CINDERELLA

In this dream, I was Cinderella. Or very much like her. I had two stepsisters, and we were going to a ball.

But I was an UNLUCKY Cinderella. My (stupid) stepsisters had (stupid) partners, but I didn't (not even a stupid one, darn). They were wearing pretty dresses, but mine wasn't very pretty. There was a disguise contest, and my stepsisters wore nice disguises, but I had to wear... old plastic bags!

By the way, Kevin Costner was also there, but he wasn't doing anything important, probably because I don't like most of his movies. If you wonder why he was there, well, I wouldn't have invited him, but I wasn't the host at that ball.

Anyway, at the contest, my stepsisters and I had to climb some steps to reach a platform. I had a problem with that, though: my feet were inside the same plastic bag! So, I had to half-jump, half-walk in a very funny way, like a clumsy penguin, as I wondered what should I tell the jury about my disguise. That I was planet Earth, perhaps, all polluted with plastic?

I started to laugh so hard that I woke myself up, still laughing :-D

THE BOY AND THE CLOCK

Last night I dreamed I was home, and I found a dismantled clock in my bedroom. It was an electronic clock, so the pieces looked like those from a computer. I tried to assemble it, though I didn't really have a clue, but there was this incredibly annoying little boy stealing the pieces and hiding them under the bed. Several times I had to go after him, to recover those missing pieces. The boy wasn't playing, he really wanted to make me mad.

So, the dream ended before I could assemble the dismantled clock. Stupid little kid.

PLAYING HOCKEY

In my dream, I met a guy who was wearing roller skates, and he invited me to play hockey. I've never played hockey in real life, mind you, but I said okay, and suddely I was also wearing roller skates, and we started to play.

And my, that was fun! We were playing amazingly fast, too, and I was suprised that I was so good at a game I had never played before.

Then I hit the puck very hard (it was a disc, not a ball, though we weren't playing ice hockey), and it got lost in the distance.

Perhaps I forgot that we were playing hockey, not golf. Okay, maybe I'll try golf next time. And maybe I will be good at it too, since EVERYTHING's possible in my dreams.

I was sorry that the dream ended there, though. That guy was really cool :-)

ALIENS AND WARRIORS

I had two dreams last night. In the first one, the world had been invaded by destructive aliens from outer space. They bombed the whole city, and we humans were forced to escape and hide from them. Yet some people and I carefully spied the aliens, to find out why they had come to Earth.

Well, it seems their planet had run out of some elements (like metals and minerals), so now they were filling up their spaceships with random objects, to take them back home.

Stupid aliens. They could have ASKED before bombing us. I mean, we have a lot of garbage they could have taken with them for free!

By the way, at the beginning of my dream they were wearing some kind of armor. Then some aliens took them off and revealed their true appearance: they looked very much like dead trees, with creepy white eyes.

In my second dream, some warriors and I attacked a temple to be admitted there as students of martial arts. The fight was very much like those from Asian movies, and actually, one of the warriors of my group was an Asian woman dressed in red.

We won the fight and were admitted as students. One of our first tasks was to walk and walk around the temple (a beautiful building, as usual), as some kind of exercise. It was a tiresome walk, but for some reason it wasn't hard for me. I could climb stairs very easily, as if I was an astronaut on the Moon. Later I found out that I could float in the air and fly as well.

Unfortunately, my dream ended there. Darn. I never had the chance to face some enemies and try my awesome powers in a real battle!

THE SPIDERS AND ME

I like spiders. I don't mind to have them in my house: either I leave them alone or take them to my garden.

I have a recurrent dream, though, where I find spiders in my house, specially under the bed. But they're amazingly big and hairy, with a lot of shiny eyes. Most of the time I'm searching for something (that's why I'm looking under the bed or other pieces of furniture), and the spiders are so huge and so numerous that I feel kinda scared. And I usually think: "Wow, I should have cleaned more often here, if they multiply like this when I'm not looking."

I've never been attacked by those spiders, though, as I've never been stung by spiders in real life. Those monster-spiders in my dreams, though, still make me feel uneasy...
