So I've been having a few weird ones lately. The latest was really kinda boring and everyday, but apparently I was talking IRL through it. I was sitting on a moving bus or something that was like a restaurant, having dinner with a blonde lady I don't know but knew in the dream, and I was drinking some weird, expensive bottled water. We were making dinner conversation, she said something funny and I laughed, and then Hound quietly said "What?" IRL and I was instantly and fully awake. I guess I'd been muttering weird stuff in my sleep for awhile, then laughed and he got curious.

I seem to remember saying how I don't usually drink the expensive bottled water because it's stupidly priced, but it tastes good so I buy it occasionally as a treat. Apparently even in my dreams my dinner conversation is boring as hell.

Alright, let's hear yours. I'm going back to bed, in the meantime. :p

The times I've mentally sketched out plans/designs for things whilst asleep and subsequently had them work have been pretty cool.

Personally I find remembered narrative dreams generally only happen on going back to sleep in the morning (averages about three hours extra and being groggy from lucid dreaming towards the end. Prefer a couple of sleep cycles per night unless I'm ill or it's really cold.)

Well, I just dreamed last night (or this morning) that I was Batman and tried to escape from a tower from a horrible old woman. Weird part is after I escaped (sliding down through a tunnel from the top), I found I can go back and try two different endings. :wtf:

On the weekend, I took a nap on the couch only to keep having a dream about taking a nap on the couch. Throughout the whole dream I was aware that it was a dream and kept wondering why I was having such a boring dream.

Since I moved to china, I seem only to dream about work... This used to be different in Germany, but now I wake up remembering meetings about budget an a lot of excel involved. Communicating wrong information, having to explain things in a big round of people and so on. It is never a fun dream.
This week I never came home before 9 PM andd continued to work until midnight after s short dinner.
Glad when this is over.

I remember I used to dream a lot about flying, like jumping down a building.

I used to get these dreams that I would wake screaming or crying and upset from, but could never remember. They didn't happen often, but I'm glad I don't get those anymore.

When I went to sleep earlier after making the above post, I had another dream. I was gonna type that bugger out, but interrupted sleep tends to give me a headache so I didn't feel like it earlier and I had to get ready for work. It also bothered me mildly because it was so strange and a little gross.

I dreamt I had this itchy little bump on my head, that I scratched at it and I pulled this long hair out of it. The hair was like every other hair on my head- long, wavy, brown, but this hair had a weird little black, plastic-looking bump on it near the base. I scratched at it a bit because it looked so weird, and the little hair-bump burst and out flew this big, shiny black beetle that grew really fast to be about the size of my head. The beetle hit the floor and started crawling around, being a beetle... I called someone over (forget who), pointed at the shiny bastard minding its own business crawling about on the floor and told them what happened. Suddenly the beetles' rear end starts glowing like a firefly would except that it's really bright, like a standard light bulb in a lamp. the person I was talking to and I both get a bit weirded out, and next thing I know I'm walking down the street, carrying that ugly thing in a box. No idea where I was going now, but I seem to remember not being pleased with the situation.

I have a recurring dream about somebody making ostrich lasagna.
I think my dreams are trying to tell me something.

Dude, that is like so random and crazy. Ostrich lasagna? LOL!

I haven't had ostrich in ages. It'd make good lasagne.

I mostly have pretty terrifying dreams that end with me waking because my heart is beating out of my chest. I'm liable to give myself a heart attack one of these days.

Had a dream last night in which I somehow ended up going back in time thirty years. Strangely, my first thought was "Right, let's work out how to fit into society well enough to get through to 1984 and see the first Transformer toys hit the shelves. MISB frenzy!" Sad. Very sad. :lol:

I had a dream that at work we were selling a horse lasagne. Then it wasn't a dream.

I can't remember any especially weird dreams I've had lately, not like last time we did this (which wasn't even long ago was it?)
I'm sure I'll remember p one later when I'm in no position to post it.

I often dream about mysteriously becomnig naked in public, losing my footwear or carrying a pillow with me. I haven't had dreams like that in a while, though.

My dreams are weird and usally forgettable when I wake up.

I apparently started laughing, talking and making a weird "Haaaaaa..." noise in my sleep last night. I remember a dream involving asking someone what their banana's name was, and drawing sunglasses on a drawing of an eyeball that was blinking and talking to me. I think I was in a basement.

If I wasn't me I'd be a bit weirded out to be sleeping with me by now. Apparently pregnant women can get some whacked-out dreams, so I'm blaming my sweet little parasite.

Can't believe I remembered my password for this account. Good thing too, as it was linked to an old email account I no longer use.

In unrelated news holy crap my signature is old.

Doing well my friend. It has been far too long. How are you?

The recent MTMTE comics have compelled me to return to the fold. Deliciously good stuff in all honesty. Not just a good tf comic but a great comic independent of any tie-in. In any case I've begun pulling up a barstool at Transfans again.

It *is* really nice to be able to say that -- that "this is a good comic, not just a good showing for X franchise".

I seem to have gone into fraud/IT auditing more-or-less by accident. You were... heading into the legal business IIRC?

Yay! It's you!

Worry not about threadjacking- this thread was probably just an excuse to post something when I was bored and felt like posting something, anyway.

Yup, I'm an attorney now. Barrister would be the most precise term to equate it to the UK legal system as I spend most of my time litigating in a courtroom. (To be honest, I kinda wish the U.S. Legal system let us use the wigs and whatnot, but I digress)

In any case I do primarily med mal, nursing home abuse, appellate law and some constitutional law on the side. It's fun and some days are completely crazy, but for the most part I do truly enjoy it.

What exactly do you mean by fraud/IT auditing? As in making sure no one is charging bottles of champagne on the company dime? Cause if so, please don't audit my expense reports.

It's Denyer who's been putting horse meat in things!


Good to see the Roberts love bringing people back into the fold.

Yeah, more or less. Local government and the fraud side tends to be theft of time and materials, but you've also got public-facing services that get taken advantage of such as social housing, tax discounts, etc. It's trying to harden a control environment that's falling apart due to cuts, plus some join-the-dots data analysis looking at things from a variety of angles, including efficiency -- stuff like this (http://www.dudley.gov.uk/valueformoney) and this (http://www.dudley.gov.uk/fraud). Quite a bit of variety, although rather depressing at times when you get onto stuff that involves social services and police... I'm guessing the malpractice/abuse side of law is similar.

The IT side is more like regular auditing.

Yea it is never fun to look at the dark side of the parts of society that are supposed to help people. The U.S. elderly care system for instance is pretty much in shambles. Nursing Homes tend to be grossly understaffed with a profit motive first and patient safety a distant goal. Malpractice suits are now a cost of doing business as it is still cheaper, generally, to pay a lawsuit than to actually do your job in the first place.

Still it is nice at times to nail the wrong doers to the wall even if it is akin to plugging one hole in a dam bursting at the seams.

WOOO STRAFE YAY
