Meal Time & Dancing (S&D)

by Dong-Nghi
(Stanford, CA, USA)

I don't remember the entirety of my dreams, just tid bits, and I have no idea how one part connects to the next.

In last night's dream, I am standing in a club. There are two other women there and we begin a conversation. A group of men appear and try to make conversation. I ignore them, and they leave. I walk up the stairs to different spaces in this club. It is dark, blue, red, and smoky. Most rooms appear empty but for a few clusters of people. I keep running into the group of men from earlier, but every time I lose my companions until I am alone.

At some point in this dream, I realize one of the women from earlier is Lindsey Lohan and the other is her lesbian lover. I walk to get a drink and meet a woman with tattoos all over her body. She gives me polaroids to show my boyfriend and tells me to go home. The polaroids are portraits of people I don't know.

Another point in this dream, I am opening an oven. My boyfriend is looking at the pictures and asks me where I got them from. I can't answer because I am cutting a baguette. We're toasting them with lentil butter and beef bone marrows for lunch. My "dream" house is large, kind of like a warehouse, and I have wood surfaces in my kitchen. Also, I burn myself making toast in the oven. I keep cutting baguette bread for the toast even though we have plenty. When I do speak, I ask my boyfriend to make a salad.

Then I wake up as I'm plating the meal.

The only thing wrong with this is that we dont have a recording-device to mull over physical characteristics of these unknown-people in dreams while awake. Ive even seen some peoples faces for minutes on end in dreams in every detail and its getting harder to remember them because a photograph/screen shot is more reliable than trusting memory alone.
