I had a really shitty dream the other night. I havn't had any in weeks. Behind my house is the woods, but there is also like a path a car can fit down, and sometimes there are cars that drive down there, and I always wonder where the hell they are going. I think a) tending their marijuana plants or 2) dumping a dead body. I watch a lot of horror movies. Always there are people on their 4 wheelers and dirt bikes. Wait, not always, only when I am trying to sleep. My bad.
Anyway latley I have been sleeping on the couch. Silly as it may seem it makes me miss snuggling with my manfriend less. But, I don't sleep well out there. I dreamt that I was sleeping on the couch, and as always, my dog sleeps 99% of the time, except for when I'm trying to sleep, then she decides to get up and mosey around and I have to get up cus she'll just piss wherever she wants. So, in my dream I had to force her to go outside to potty. I noticed a car parked out behind my house in the woods, and I saw a man get out with a long blonde ponytail. (redneck...fitting for where I live)
He walked up to my apartment, which is brick, and I got up and went inside and shut my back door. I heard a loud thud, and looked out and saw he threw a knife into my apartment wall. For some reason, I went out to look at it, and plus I had to rescue my slow, blind, old dog from this maniac! But when I opened the door he came charging in at me. He picked me up and put me over his shoulder and was hitting me. I was screaming for him to stop and he said "I'll never stop I'm going to beat you to death". I remember that line pretty clearly.
I kept thinking, how will I get help? I screamed in that dream way, where you scream but barely anything comes out. I kept wondering why my neighbors havn't called the cops or tried to save me. (have some sex and they are first to point out that we made too much noise, get beaten to death, they turn their attention elsewhere...) I managed to break free and get my cell phone, and dialed 911. It was some other number. In my dream 911 didn't work on cell phones. So then I had to try to think of the number to the police. Who the fuck knows that? I throw all my phone books away cus that's why the universe created the internet.
Which....I don't have, since I have no COMPUTER.
I kept getting caught back up by this man who was beating me up. I thought there was no way I would get out of the house. Eventually I broke free and ran across the street, which was really across the street from my house growing up, this guy asked me why I didn't use my car alarm? So, I went back home like a moron where the guy was "missing" and I snuck around my apartment, deciding I'd rescue my cat and dogs. My dog is a hopeless case, cus she couldnt see me or hear me when I tried to get her to come. I tried to set off my car alarm, which wouldn't work cus my car was in my garage.
When I woke up, I was so afraid to let my dog out I barricaded her on the couch with me so she couldn't jump down. And, I went to get my keys with my car alarm thingy on it, in case 911 didn't work.
When I looked up the symbolism in this dream, not being able to scream signifies your frustration and helplessness w/a situation. It hilights a difficulty communicating. Well, I wonder what thats all about? (points finger at manfriend)
P.S. I had a nice evening with my manfriend. We tried to watch the new Narnia, but we had hot toddies cus we're sickiepoo. zzzzzz I thought I was having a sex dream in the wee hours but....that wasn't a dream! Those are the best.
P.P. S. Bronchitis took out my entire dept. So, pretty much it's me at work on month end. Awesome!
