Strange Dreams Thread

Postby RJW76 on Wed Aug 04, 2010 9:55 am

A thread for weird/random/funny dreams you've had. At least the PG versions.

I dreamed last night that I went to the Winter Classic with my dad, but the UConn Women's team was playing Pitt in hoops and nobody was there and they had high school style bleachers set up. I also remember being upset that I had to go all the way to the work vending machine just to get a hot chocolate.

I have had some bizarre dreams lately. But it's one of those things where I can't remember the exact details of any of them

Actually, I did have a strange dream while in the Outer Banks. It was more of a nightmare...I have an intense dislike/hatred towards most flying insects. I had a dream that they were swarming me....bees, locusts, the whole works. Apparently, I was swiping at them in my dream, and I knocked everything off the nightstand in our hotel. My wife woke up scared to death...that was interesting. I'm happy I wasn't facing her.

I've had so many plane crash dreams since 9/11, maybe even before. It's why I'm wickedly afraid to fly. Most I'm watching from the ground, but every now and then I'm in one.

Be safe going home.

This one happened to me a couple nights ago:

I was at Kennywood, where my girlfriend was set to marry an old co-worker from one of her previous jobs. Completely dumbfounded by this, she assured me that she would divorce him to marry me when I was ready. Also of note- I won keys to a car of my choice at one of the game stands and my deceased grandfather and Gary Bettman were in attendance.

I only seem to have nightmares about zombies, tornadoes, rats, an old job, and a return to high school.

Did you have a lot of small problems at home/work waiting for you when you returned?

Not especially. But there have been a few more bugs in our house than usual. The other night, I came out of the bathroom and had a gigantic spider from hell on my leg. And a locust attacked me when I was taking the trash out Sunday :scared:

Even though it's been 17 years since I've graduated college I still have dreams where I'm skipping classes to party.

A couple years ago I was a hockey coach & had keys to the rink. I had a dream that the compressor had shut down and the college team that was practicing on the ice had to keep scraping the snow off & the usable ice kept getting smaller & smaller. They were mad at me but there was nothing I could do.

Then next morning (this part really happened) I stopped at the rink on my way to work. Alarms were going off. The compressor was off and ice temp was getting dangerously high. :scared: I restarted the compressor & saved the day. :fist: I am one with the ice.

Last night I dreamed I was fishing in the ohio river & a bunch of runaway barges floated by, then me & some friends went to Europe. :lol:

The absolute strangest dream I ever had was where I was on another planet visiting this city that was built on a cliff-side. Each home or building had all these balconies that jutted out over the cliff and some had walkways between them. I remember flying ships and such in the sky, then a "war" broke out between those in the cliff city and the flying dics. They were shooting lasers and such at each other and I was in the middle of all this, on the balconies.

It was strangely vivid and this dream was well over 15 years ago!

I always tend to have the weirdest/most psychedelic dreams that make no sense whatsoever. The majority of them seem to be in the theme of a Cloverfield/Godzilla type or a Jason Bourne/Tom Clancy Novel type.

I remember this dream vividly although it happened over 25 years ago.
I was flying the plane from the movie Firefox. I was evading missiles and flew higher and higher. I then crash into a cloud which it made of snow, and crawl out of the wreckage unharmed. In the distance I see a set of metal doors. The metal doors lead to an gym area setup with boxing rings. There are people here jumping rope and attempting to recite the alphabet, none of them can. I grab a jumprope and do it without hesitation. Everyone stops and tells me it's time to leave. Then I wake up.

Last night I had this really strange dream.

I dreamt that I was in hotel room 528, then I was out in hotel hallway without gravity fighting projections, then I went to some snowy hospital/fortress place where I fought a snow army, then I ended up washing up on some beach of a crumbling city, then I woke up.

Spoiler:
or did i?

Last night I was in high school, screaming at Zachary Quinto for yelling at our teacher, who happened to be my uncle.

I had this crazy dream about 20 years ago that I ran a hotel in this town that was completely bought by a visiting Japanese tycoon, who planned to turn the hamlet into a huge golf course and recreation resort. I'm the lone hold-out. Everyone else in the town say goodbye by recreating a scene from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.

Five years then passed. I continue to grimly run hotel, while golf balls constantly pelt the walls. My wife dresses like a geisha, and the hotel is now completely staffed by Japanese replacements.

The ex-townsfolk — richer and odder than before — unexpectedly pay me a visit. three eccentric woodsmen, two of whom were mute, have all now married obnoxiously talkative and abrasive women from Long Island (one of whom is Lisa Kudrow). When their wives will not shut up, the woodsmen yell out in unison, "QUIET!!" Everyone is stunned and when I ask why the brothers have never spoken in public until then, the talkative one says that it is because 'they've never been so PO'ed before!'

Things quickly become chaotic, with the visitors cheerfully deciding on an extended stay at the inn. I vent my frustration at how unmanageable and stupid everything has become, but nobody is interested in my opinion, so I announces that I am finally fed up and leaving for good. As I storms out the door, I turn around and say, "You're all CRAZY!" Just then, I'm struck by a wayward golf ball and collapse, unconscious. Then I woke up.
