I’m watching a show about house buying. There are images of a house surrounded by woods and fruit-bearing trees. I’m in the show and talking to a young man who lives there. He shows me how to pick off these strange apples off a tree. They resemble breadfruit and come off the tree easily. As he eats a few, I keep picking them off the tree and bringing them to him. A young couple in the room with him is also eating the fruit. The young woman holds out her hand to me for more fruit. I get a few more and also pick off some large garlic off the tree.

The young man tells me he’s pretty sick of the fruit but that he’s a picky eater in general. He tells me he has even finished the canary candy that my wife brought him. I tell him I don’t recall the candy.

I’m traveling through a dingy basement/dungeon with two women (and one or two others). We’re looking to get escape and find our enemy.

In a damp and cluttered room, we pick up a ling screwdriver and two other pointed weapons.

As we travel along a brick lined corridor, we watch our shadows travel along the wall, illuminated by torches all the wall. We hear some movement from a room to the side of us and realize too late that our shadows have alerted them to our presence.

As we pass the doorway to the room, a small group of short, Gamorrean Guard-type creatures come out fighting. We quickly dispatch them with our weapons and watch as a pus-like substance ooze out of them. I grab one of their short swords and swing at a corpse to test its sharpness. Findng it dull, I toss it aside and tell the group to hang on to their weapons.

We’ve now picked up two child-sized gnome-like creatures and have let them join us. I assign their care to one of the women and tell her to take up the rear.

We continue our way out of the tunnels.

As we approach a door to the outside, we see a woman we know. One of the other women in our group introduces me to her, “This is going to be one of our roommates.” She checks me out and seems to approve.

I’m in a house at night with a friend/acquaintance. We’re throwing stuff at each other in a semi-serious way. I’m picking just about anything I can grab on the table and throwing it at him. As I’m starting to run out of things to throw, two other friends walk in. I ask the female friend to hand me things from the floor and start throwing those things at the guy too.

I start getting carried away and throw things at the female friend as well.

My friend/rival sits down at the table and starts to doze off. I get down on the floor and start to search for my things that he’s stolen. On the floor, I see his camera kit and get tempted to take some pictures of him while he’s dozing off. I decide against it since I’d have to find his lens and put his camera together.

I look at the time and realize it’s already 9:30 pm. I tell the other two friends that we have to go to my birthday party (which started at 8pm). We also nudge our sleeping friend (who’s drunk) and ask if he’s going to be okay. We shake him a few times and tell him we’re leaving. He wakes up and says he’s coming with us.

I suddenly wonder about all the party attendants who might have arrived since 8 and if there was anyone to let them in. I also worry about whether or not I had a babysitter at the house tonight. Then I remember I don’t have a baby, just rabbits.


I’m at home at night waiting for people to arrive at my party. I look out the window and see people parking in the cul de sac and coming in. As a car full of people parks, a huge jeep pulls up behind them and nearly runs them over. The two carloads of people laugh and joke about it.

I decide to change into one of my good shirts. As I start to head downstairs, I realize undershirt it dirty and I change again.

I’m outside on South Limestone Street tossing firecracker grenades back and forth with Bill (from poker). I’m sitting in a stairwell when one lands next to me. I scramble to pick it up and throw it back. Bill runs inside a building. I chase after him, picking up a discarded grenade as I go. I head inside a store and see a couple of black people sitting inside. I ask them if they know where the grenades are. They eye my suspiciously and say nothing.

Susannah and I are at a dinner table trying to pick out desert. She says she either wants the raspberry ice cream or the ham. “Ham?” I look through the desert menu but can’t find it.


I’m walking into the back of a store. I get a little nervous as I brush past a female employee. I’m about to tell her I’m a friend of the owner and that I also run a business on the same street but she doesn’t say anything to me. Once in the back, I go behind a changing screen and begin to change out of my pants.

Susannah and I are in a large room with a fireplace. Susannah starts taking off her clothes and I go to lock the door. The front door is broken and won’t lock. I look outside and see several black nannies sleeping on the tables and benches outside. I tell Susannah we should stay in the bedroom.

I’m hanging out with everyone after our wedding in Kentucky. We’re looking through a screen door to the yard outside. Everyone is milling around and talking. One woman we know (who’s a bit of a slut) is mounting herself on a man (maybe her boyfriend). She’s trying to be subtle about it but it’s pretty obvious to everyone.

The house we’re in becomes a train and we pull off without the copulating couple. One of our friends (a bald guy in his 40s) almost hits his head on the low ceiling. As our train travels slowly towards town, I look around the room and mentally prepare my thank-you’s. I ask someone where (Derrick or Roderick – a black friend of ours and maybe the boyfriend of the slut) is. Someone tells me they flew home and got into a fight. I ask, “They flew back into town?” Someone says, “No, they took a cab back to town but got into a fight and got kicked off their flight. I shake my head in disbelief and say, “Well, let’s at least get our wedding pictures from him.”

I’m in the basement of a room with several people. I’ve been attacking people and stabbing some of them. A young kid comes up and I grab him. I ask him how old he is. He tries to tell me he’s 18 but looks much younger. I tell him to get the hell out of here and out of this life. I put my knife down and tell him I’m sparing his life.

I’m in a sprawling old house trying to get out. I make my way through a room and have to get by a black woman sleeping in a chair. I apologize as I squeeze past her.

In another room, there are lots of jeans spread out over the bed and floor. As if in a vintage store, I start looking them over to find a pair that I like. A few of them are the wrong sizes, the other ones are damaged or have holes in them.

I walk over to a shelf to see lots of action figures. Most of them have been mixed and matched (Yoda’s head on a GI Joe figure). I fiddle with them briefly and leave.


I’m watching the scene of a man standing on a boardwalk. He’s the vice president of the United States (from the West Wing). As a orange glow emanates in the background, he says, “What you see behind me is a 7 megaton nuclear bomb known as a (something). I will continue to report to you as things happen. The explosion spreads slowly towards him and an army helicopter picks him up. Inside the helicopter, J.K. Simmons (without his J. Jonah Jameson moustache) plays a general and says warily, “Get us an army together…”

The view pans back down to the boardwalk. Now everything seems normal. There are people walking back and forth. The view flies over the boardwalk and settles on a young couple and a mother. As they talk, an orange burst flashes in the background. Before anyone can react, it spreads to the boardwalk, dissipating into a small cloud of dust by the time it hits the people. The remaining people run for cover.

I’m watching TV in a public space when a woman (a nurse?) come up and asks me to change the channel. She wants to check the national terrorist threat level (there’s a channel that just shows that). I scoff and start surfing to find it. The channel shows the level to be low (or medium). A middle-aged black man joins us. I start ranting, “God I hate this whole administration! I hate ‘em so much I’m actually giving up my vote to Ralph Nader.”

They glance over to the bathroom sink near the TV and marvel at a Homer Simpson sculpture on the sink. It looks like something I own.

I’m playing in a game show hosted by Steve Baron. It’s like Jeopardy crossed with poker. I win a big round by getting a full house – fives over tens.

I’m trying to chase Salty back into her cage but she’s way out of reach. I grab a bottle of 409 and spray her. One burst hits her in the eye and her eye instantly turns white & milky. I spray her a few more times and she runs into the bathroom.

As she jumps into the bathtub, I realize the cleaning spray is hurting her and I go to reach for a towel to dry her off. As I reach down to towel her off, I notice patches of her fur is gone and replaced by blue and white patches of skin.


I’m going somewhere with my mom and some others. As we park the car, my mom lies down in the backseat to sleep. I get her up and tell her she can sleep when we get there.

Later, I’m talking to my employee, a young black woman. I’m telling her to park her car at the gas station near the store and make friends with the gas station employees just in case something happens. I tell her our store doesn’t have the best location but that I’m planning to move it when I can. She feels a little nervous about working alone and I give her my cell phone number.

I'm watching Josh Weill play heads-up poker against somebody. They make some big bets after the flop and Josh goes all-in. The other guy calls and the dealer gets set to put out the last two cards. Instead of burning and turning the Turn and the River, the dealer flips several cards over and messes the whole game up. I get irritated and call a misdeal.

I’m in a aquarium-like place looking through a glass window. I see the ruins of ancient battleships in the distance and wonder how I can dive in and see them up close.


I’m watching several Buddhist monks battle strange monsters. One monk is trying to protect a woman from a large assailant. The woman asks him why he doesn’t fight back. The monk pushes himself and the woman into an old-fashioned wooden phone booth to change. He comes out shirtless and confronts the attacker.

The attacker throws a large metal ball at the monk and the monk deflects it gracefully. Then the attacker tries to throw a heavy metal weapon at him. The Monk rushes the attacker and uses the weight of the weapon to knock him to the ground.

I’m in a college or high school dorm room with my female roommate (who reminds me of Tosha Neace). I go into the tiny bathroom and discover that it’s laid out terribly. The toilet is right up against the bathtub and I’d have to stand in the tub to pee. The sink is right above the toilet and so low that I can’t even completely lift the lid. I complain to Tosha about this.


I’m on the run with a couple of other guys. We run into a large rock structure surrounded by water. As we climb onto it, we see shapes just below the surface of the rock. The shapes are large walruses/sharks which burst through the surface to try to attack us. One of the guys goes into a crevice while the rest of us try to reach higher ground. Once safe, I yell for the guy in the crevice. He tells me he’s already safe.

I make my way onto a large campus. I realize I’m being followed by several men posing as college students. I start leading them into a classroom building. I wait around a corner for them to catch up and then suddenly approach them. “Hey guys, have you heard about this show tonight?” They look a little confused and shake their heads. I tell them about this show later tonight at the student center. I ask them for the time and they tell me 8:30. I yell about being late and run off, leaving them behind.

I’m run to a large hotel on the water. I’m still on the run from someone. As I dart through the hotel to escape, I run into a beautiful young woman who I’d seen earlier. She starts running with me and I lead her toward the basement. She hands me a large trophy and I hold it like a blunt weapon, saying, “This may come in handy.”

We try to exit through the back of the hotel but see several security guards coming out way. We duck into a stairwell and head o the basement. As we run past some guards, one of them comes towards me. I swing the trophy and hit him in the head. We continue running. I’m trying to remember which way the garage is so we can steal a car to escape.
