The Inlaw Maw was cleaning out the parrot's cage (which goes to show that dreams are absurd, she never cleaned out a parrot's cage in her puff. The parrot was "hers" but cleaning it out was the Inlaw Paw's job).  The parrot had a go at her hand, so she grabbed it by a wing and threw it on the floor, saying "don't you peck me, you devil".  Parrot squawked and died.

Combination of true memories of the Maw and Peach from Lonesome Dove - something like that.

Had one that spooked me last night! As is usual with me, the narrative is very disjointed.  Started with a woman revealing the image of another naked (dead?) woman on the floor of a room. Someone was at the door, and she wiped away the image. Jump cut to an old-style train compartment (like the Southern slam door ones), and I'm sitting next to the first woman, and I'm holding a cushion - beige corduroy as it happens. She asks me "is it all gone" and I shake the pillow, which emits a discordant string noise (there's something about  being a musician in there somewhere) . I answer "mostly" and turn to her. Her eyes are wide, one has a yellow pupil, the other eye looks like a pencil drawing. I look at the cushion, and it has the face of the other (dead) woman drawn in pencil, with one yellow eye.

At this point I wake, with that feeling of the hairs all over standing on end. Spooky!

I dreamed that I dreamed that Mrs E and I were staying somewhere we hadn't been before in mid Wales. However, I was convinced that we had been there before, and done all the same things andeaten the same meals. This was puzzling.  Then I realised that I had dreamed our earlier visit and woke feeling relieved to know what had "really" happened.

Then I really woke up...

Are you sure you've woken up?

Odd one a couple of nights ago. I had become a rough sleeper by some sort of overnight magic carpet process. I was sleeping in the middle of the road in what looked one of the side streets near here, in bed, with mattress, sheets, duvet, pillows, but the actual bed itself had vanished. I had to get up to move my bed to let a car past. Apart from the mattress, it's probably an accurate omen.

Typical anxiety dream last night, doubtless engendered by a surfeit of tea and coffee:  hanging around before the start of PBP with my old chum Augustin. Went to get us a couple of coffees, but the machine hung fire on the second. There was music playing in the background, something in the style of Champs Elysées but the tune was different and words I could hear ran:

Sending polite regrets,
Pigtails, and cigarettes...


A bloke lounging at a table nearby said "shouldn't you be getting ready?" and I realized I was still in civvies. Went back to our van, climbed in to get to my dunnage and realized halfway that I'd left all my cycling togs at home. Went on searching all the same, while a bunch of scruffy kids appeared and began banging on the windows, plunder aforethought.

Woke up.

Someone had built a sociable, recumbent (or semi-recumbent?), delta trike. A bench seat – literally a wooden bench, taken from an old railway station, judging by its shape and Edwardian chocolate brown colour – wide enough for two adults, with side by side pedals. The steering mechanism was unclear, and in fact the layout might even have morphed from delta to tadpole and back again while it was being ridden. Two men were riding it, one of them was Wowbagger. Then a third came running up behind, jumped over the bench, sat in the middle and started pedalling furiously. He managed to put a lot of extra speed into the machine, which was quite remarkable given he had no pedals. All three were wearing some sort of fur-trimmed robes, like medieval mayors. Then, of course, they crashed.

I've had a couple of recursive dreams lately, where I wake from a dream, in a dream.

Last night's featured a novel storage medium, in the form of a giant VHS-style cassette where each spool was a stack of DVDs[1] in a jukebox arrangement.  I expect Techmoan will be doing a video about it in due course.

Two slightly different dreams last night. In the first, I'd parked a car for a few minutes. It was my car in the dream, but it didn't properly resemble any car I had ever owned. Anyway, it got stolen.

In the second dream someone stole my bicycle. Again, I'm not sure that the bicycle in question actually resembled mine.

It dawned on me when I woke up that the second dream was far more traumatic than the first, which I suppose is how it should be.

I don't know if we already have a thread for this; if so, please amalgamate.

It is for weird dreams and, if people feel daft enough, "interpretations". I had a really, really odd one a couple of days ago, while sleeping in the afternoon pre-night shift.

I had set off on my bike with a full camping load, and for some reason that involved going to my former spousal home in Horley. My ex-wife was ironing vast quantities of clothing, having set up a frame tent on the grassy area across the road, supplied by an extension cable. I had to climb over a shop-style counter to get to her, but she looked like my friend Emma, and had grown to about six foot six tall.

I came out of the ironing place to find my bike gone, but the tent and sleeping bag left behind, so I went walkabout to look for my bike, turning the corner and emerging onto Buckingham Palace Road in London. There was a family, Mam/Dad/Lad, trying to sort out hire bikes, which were actually tadpole trikes, in red, with no sprockets/pedals. I tried to assemble the boy's, which involved folding it in half, and the family took me to the hire centre, which was somebody's bedroom. There were pedal/sprocket assemblies in the wardrobe, so I wheeled the trikes next to the bed and started  attaching drive trains.

There followed a really detailed bit of dream about grub screws and plastic caps, but nowhere did a chain feature. Screwdrivers were in a toothbrush holder in the en-suite bathroom. Partway through, the occupant of the bedroom turned up, who was my old mandolin tutor Stuart. He showed me two large flat screen TV's he wanted me to take, and we disassembled them by taking off the screens, which rolled up like rugs, to reveal five planks laid side by side that formed the stiffening for each TV. We discussed whether the screens should be rolled around the two bundles of planks.

We rolled up the two screens, and attached a bundle of planks to each one, which we strapped to the rack of my bike, which had appeared on the street outside the bedroom... and that was it.

The details are fading but last night's Harry Potter/Star Wars crossover/mash up dream was a ridiculous amount of fun.

Not mine, my son's just told me he had a definitely weird dream last night. He was on a plane with some of his friends and the plane was going to crash unless he could explain to the them the endgoal of communism in 30 seconds. "The ultimate endgoal of communism is a stateless, classless society in which one produces what they can takes what they need" was the sentence he came up with. And the plane stayed aloft.
