I’ve been sick and on medication, so I’ve not had very vivid dreams or the energy to post here. So here are snippets of what I do remember from random dreams in the last week:

These dreams are probably from the fact that I started having a sore throat last night and the arthritis is flaring up in my knees.
I remember clearing snow with my neighbor off of our cars early in the morning before the sun came up. They were parked in front of a Brownstone/terraced house on South Third Street in downtown Columbus.
After clearing the snow, I got in my car and the guy got in the passenger side. I remember thinking he was good-looking and nice and had dark brown hair. I thought the fact that he got in as if it were planned or normal was kinda neat – I love it when people have the guts to do unexpected things.
I said that I was going to someplace (I don’t remember where, now) and asked if he was also going that way. He sighed and said no, then, got out and got in his car.
I went the wrong way up the street and went around the block because I didn’t realize I was ON South Third. The street in waking life has metered parking along the street and garages under those apartments – my dream had it where the cars were parked at an angle off the street.
I had trouble forcing myself to remember how to get to work. I finally got to the highway, but it turned into a bus or train. While riding the bus/train that was VERY spacious, I noticed that the neighbor guy was also on it. I remember trying to understand the red marquee that told what the next stop was. The streets and intersections were unfamiliar to me.
This seemed like a continuation of the last dream as if I were going to a new job or something. I remember it taking place in an old brick building that looked bigger on the inside. There were wood paneling and miscellaneous items around. I remember walking downstairs to enter the large area.
There was an older man who was the trainer and he said he’d start me out with “Tennis.” It was a large TV screen with a tennis game. He handed me a controller that was similar to a Wii controller. I thought that I could show off since I’m decent at Wii Tennis – at least back when I last played it. He was right handed and I could do either hand, but I wanted to start with my left. I asked him if it could be switched to left-handed and he said no. I tried with different hands and it used live action video and there was a red circle on the screen where it saw the control. The game was harder than expected.
I remember sitting in a wooden chair later, exhausted. The trainer was tough on me, but I respected that. Another character was there, possibly Charlie* maybe? and he was there for support and helped me relax and at times, laugh. Once carried me over to the restroom when I forgot that I should probably take breaks. There was even a scene where I hugged him and thanked him and he was surprised. He didn’t look like Charlie at that time, though, he looked more like that good-looking neighbor from the earlier dream.
I remember watching some 1990s sci-fi TV show that I joked that anytime I saw the show, it was always the same three episodes. There was another show coming up that was a news show that I described it to my mom (who stopped by to visit) as being like CBS This Morning or CBS News or that one CBS show that runs on Sunday mornings. I looked it up on IMDB.com on an iPad in the dream and it said it ran from 2007-2009. I said that I missed that show.
There was a scene from one dream where I remember being late to something happening outside of a large mansion – like a wedding or some outdoor filming. I rushed up the far right side of a large audience sitting in white folding chairs and took a seat on the second chair in the front row.

Weird dream last night – I dreamed I talked to some character who said he had a ‘power’ of some sort. I told him to show me this power. He said, ‘I’ll make your phone go off, watch!’ Then my alarm on my cell phone went off and woke me up.

I don’t remember much of it, just that there was some dumb plot about characters testing some ghost or mad man that would do anything they said and they all apparently were suicidal because they kept asking it to kill them. I remember watching this thinking about how crappy his horror movie is and it will give me crappy horror movie dreams…at least they’d be interesting…
I remember being in a class with Charlie*-Alpha (the guy from real life the dream character is now rather loosely based on) and thought about how I’d put this on Facebook without giving away too much information, but relay it to friends. For some reason, I thought using the term “open door” made sense and thought about posting about how it was “Day 2 of Open Door.”
I wanted to ask him out, but I was apprehensive about it because his ex-girlfriend (who hasn’t seen him in ages and is now married in waking life) was there and I’m friends with her. It doesn’t help that I thought they were perfect for each other when they were dating and she still had feelings for him. 🙁
I vaguely remember putting a container of salt on a shelf of other pantry goods.
I remember driving through a suburb and friends and teachers from high school were walking in a parade. I waved and one teacher nodded and smiled and others (in their adult form) smiled and waved back. It was kinda creepy – like they were waving goodbye.
There was a scene where I was getting ready for work and my mom gave me shoes to try on. I was frustrated because I was late for work and I remember that one shoe was always missing. Later, as a joke, I held up my feet and said, “Now both shoes are gone!” to make my mom laugh.
