Rescuing my Family in a Grocery Store…and from ROUS’s

me_grocery2This dream begins with me at a grocery store. I am walking around, shopping, and minding my own business when I get a phone call. As I pick up the phone, I realize it’s my cousin Justin. In a menacing voice, he says, “Get me some paper towels and some fruit, and I will tell you where your family is.” So, naturally of course I freak out and run to some stranger and tell them the situation. In a calm voice she tells me, “Hey, it’s your cousin right? See if you can reason with him.” Then I am like, “Oh yeah, I could do that.” But now, of course, my phone is nowhere to be found. I begin frantically running around the grocery store, paper towels in hand, trying to find my family. As I begin to lose all hope I collapse on the floor, all defeated, when out of nowhere, my cousin Tatiana (who looks like she is 14 years old) comes and helps me up. In a reassuring and sweet voice, she says, “Hey Nati, let’s check up here” and points to the ceiling. I look up and find a vent that is slightly open. I look back down and Tatiana has disappeared. I climb up there and find myself in what looks like an underground basement/sewer. There are some fire pits here and there and blankets on the ground.  I start walking though this underground hobo place, when all of a sudden these really creepy creatures start running throughout the whole place, trying to eat my feet. These creatures look like a cross between the Wizard of Oz monkeys and the animals (ROUS’s) from the Princess Bride. So there is a good five minutes of me jumping over these creatures (sometimes I am in midair for a good 5 seconds). Finally these huge rat/possums finally start going away, and instead I hear a dog barking. The creatures have now turned into my favorite family dog Pia. Pia leads me to my aunts, who are huddled around one of the fire pits. I go up to them and say, “Hey, what’s going on guys?” They told me that one of my aunts, my Tia Digna, was going to have major surgery. Apparently, the basement/sewer was the place where we needed to discuss this.

rousNext dream sequence:

My little cousin Victoria is at my Tia Elman’s house, asking to watch a a show called “Sins” with my sister Francheska. Cheska comes out of one of the bedrooms, looking all tired, and says “Victoria, it’s too early. It’s only 1 (in the afternoon)…maybe later..” She goes back into her bedroom and shuts the door. So Victoria looks at me all sad cause she can’t watch her favorite show “Sins” with Francheska.

Last dream:

I am at a farm/ranch with Sandra Bullock. She looks scared and I am trying to help her escape from a bad guy (who we know is my cousin Justin). We go from room to room then eventually walk out the front driveway, where we run into my cousin Pete (who apparently has been the real bad guy this whole time). He has a big smile on his face and tells us that Twitter is very impressed with all of his sport tweets, and now some sport team is going to hire him just for his tweet skills. After he told us this, Sandra and I were very excited for him.

Dream I had a while ago that I have to share with you:

In this dream I am dressed like a prostitute. I’m wearing a tiny short black skirt and black top. Apparently I am being sold in the sex slave business. Some guy is walking with me on these docks and makes a bargain with Xander. In order to transfer me to wherever we need to go, we have to go river rafting, which apparently turns out to be THE FUNNEST THING IN MY LIFE. Seriously, in my dream, I am wearing my hoochie mamma outfit, but I have the biggest smile on my face cause the rafting is so fun.

Ruining a birthday & playing Belle in Phantom of the Opera

Dream 1: Ruining a birthday party and watching Cody fall

My dream started off with me and a bunch of other people from my childhood sitting outside my late grandma’s house. There was a table set out on the driveway, and Soika, (a family friend who I consider as an aunt) was in charge of my sister’s birthday party. My sister and I (who looked the same age as we do now) are sitting at the table when Soika brings out a cookies n cream ice cream cake, with oreos on top. (We always get these cakes for birthdays at work). Soika hands it to me and tells me to let it defrost while she goes back into the house. As I am watching the cake I start to notice how fast it’s melting. So the only thing that comes to mind is, well, better eat it. So I just completely dig into the cake, hands going in, scooping it out and eating it all. I even take some out to feed my hungry sister, cause apparently she and I were raised by wolves. Soika comes back out with Bianca and Vanessa, our best childhood friends, and looks very disappointed. In fact, I think it was the maddest I’ve ever seen her. So she starts yelling at me like I was a kid, telling me that the cake was not just for me and my sister. I look all ashamed and I’m like, “but it was melting…and and….we were hungry..” In a huff, she and Bianca and Vanessa go to the grocery store to buy another cake. But before they do leave, some woman comes running toward the driveway and looks mad. Next thing I know, Soika is offering her my last peanut butter chocolate granola bar to punish me for what I did (I eat this every morning for breakfast). Once the runner ate it she had a huge smile on her face and in my head I am thinking, ‘Yeah I know it’s good huh?’

The next thing I remember is seeing Cody, a friend of mine and Alexander’s, walk around the front lawn. I’m like, “Oh look, there is Cody.” I don’t know why, but he was walking toward the 2 ft. brick wall that led to the neighbor’s lawn and wants to cross it. In my head I was like, ‘He’s gonna fall.’ And sure enough, Cody trips over the 2ft brick wall and does some somersaults until a tree finally stops him.

cookiesncreamDream 2: Playing Belle in the Phantom of the Opera

In my next dream sequence, my friends and I are in a small bedroom on a king-sized bed with a dining table in front of it. We are all sitting on the bed, hanging out, when room service comes and brings us food. My friends are about to eat the food on the bed and I’m like, “Come on guys, what are we, animals? Let’s at least eat at the table.” So we are at the table and I swear it looks like the Last Supper (my friend Megan showed me a photo-shopped picture of her and her co-workers at a Last Supper setting—hence why it came to my dream). Next thing I know, I am outside of this bedroom and looking at a beautiful mansion. I know it’s a set, but it is gorgeous and looks exactly like Beauty and the Beast. Next thing I know, some guy is telling me to come with him and meet Belle, or rather, the actress who plays Belle. When I meet her, she is near tears. I then realize that I am being introduced to her because I am taking over her job as Belle, and that’s why she was sad. But in my head I was like, “I’m playing Belle now? Wooo, that’s right beotch, suck on that!!” Next thing I know I am all dressed up in the classic yellow gown and ready to play the part in the next scene, which apparently involves me singing “Past the Point of no Return” with the Phantom of the Opera, who I found out is getting played by…guess who….Cody. But apparently someone thought it would be funny to lock the room Cody was in. So now I am freaking out and the whole crew is trying to find Cody, but he is nowhere to be found. I am on the set, looking exactly like Christine now and thinking, “Where the hell is Cody, he is going to ruin my big shot! The crowd is going to be so disappointed…” So, since no one could find Cody, my dream was too confused to continue, so I never got to see my show-stopping performance. But I did make sure I got to see what I would have looked like as Belle!

Why I probably dreamed this: Someone had posted on my Facebook feed about being excited to see Beauty and the Beast in theaters. (I don’t know why it merged with Phantom of the Opera. Although, it would have been amazing if I could have been able to sing with Gerard Butler…..(no offense Cody, I’m sure you would have made a great Phantom ;)
