Oops, sorry.
[]

I had a dream last night that I worked in an estate agents in Uxbridge high street (I have never been there, I think it was actually Taunton) and when I got into work one rainy September morning, this really campy bloke was sitting in my nice mahogany desk by the window, typing up his journal on Word.

He started having a go at me (pre-emptive strike) and I said "Don't worry, I'm used to working with queens," (a term I never actually use) and he started writing in his journal again. So I looked over to him and said "That's not how you spell "term of endearment"."

Then all these guys in suits started vomiting copiously all over the street, which is usually my brain's way of telling me it's time to wake up. Which it was.

[] @ your dream.

I wonder if anyone got my joke []

I'll bring back my dream-diary this afternoon and tell my best ones.

I just remember now that a friend of me dreamt once that I was in a children hospital and that I wanted to rape all the kids []
She said it was pretty traumatic [] []

In about 40% percent of my dreams, wherever I am, I am swimming. Not only in water, but also if I'm in the street, at work, in the park, out partying....I have to swim through the air, usually front crawl. I think it's because when I swam competitively, I trained every morning from a young age and somehow the sensation of swimming has stuck some part of my subconscious. I was wondering if Gna or Singo or any other ex competitive swimmer gets this?

It's odd because in the dreams I'm the only who has to swim, so if I’m being chased then obviously I'm slower than someone running, but then I realise that I can swim upwards sort of like flying and my assailant can't follow with his/her boring old walking on the ground technique []

The other thing is I lucid dream all the time which is ace as it usually kicks in midway and I realise I can do whatever I want []

I'm not very good at remembering dreams, but a recurring one I have is having to appear on stage, and I either don't know my part, or don't have the right costume, or both.
When I was a teenager I frequently dreamed about having to escape as a group from some kind of murderous enemy, and I escaped but the others didn't, and I felt a mixture of relief and guilt.

Inc', when you mentioned a dream diary, I got mine out and started readin over it... I was dreaming some CRAZY things in 2005. And apparently, another common theme I forgot to mention is that I find myself living in trees an awful lot in my dreams. Not living in the forest or a forested area, mind you. Like, my house is a tree. []

It would have been if there wasn't the distinct feeling that my little tree community was a very, very suburban place. Like whole families standing on the lawn to wave at the neighbors... except no houses or lawns. Just soccer moms and businessmen living up in the branches with their 2.5 children. []

In another one, I technically lived inside a box inside a warehouse where everything was painted to look like I lived in a treehouse. [] That was the rubber deacon dream. []

I have two dreams that have been recurring at least once a month for as long as I can remember:

In one, I can breathe water and I live in the ocean. I'm not a mermaid or anything, just myself with internal gills (apparently) and a dwelling under the sea.

In the other, an axe is being swung straight at my mouth and I can't move my face out of the way or move my arms to block or react.

One of these days it would be amusing to get one of those dream-interpretation books and see what each is supposed to mean. []

I dreamed that a madman was running around and killing people by touching them with lightbulbs. He must have been taking their inner light or something.

I had a dream last night that I was spending Christmas with my aunt in California. Except that it was Christmas day and I wasn't ready and didn't have gifts yet. So I opened an IKEA catalogue and pointed at something and told my cousin I'd bought it for her and it was on the way.

It turned out to be this really odd wool and metal windchime.

Who knew.

Last night, I dreamt that I was asleep and dreaming about being asleep and dreaming. So I was dreaming that I fell asleep and started dreaming (and was experiencing those dreams), and later woke up from that dream and stayed in the second layer of my dreams, at which point it was revealed that I was dreaming about being asleep and dreaming, at which point I woke up from that dream and continued in the first layer and eventually and abruptly woke up from _really_ dreaming and got out of bed.

I also notice that my dreams are usually depicted like I'm looking at the images faraway on a small screen, and not in color — everything is blurred, and no one has faces. I usually can't even see people properly, I just know who they are.

Yeah ... and sometimes I dream and when I wake up I realize that the dream I had started off the same as one I had many, many years ago, and then continued. Those dreams I don't remember at all, except when I'm dreaming the continuation years later. A sort of dream déjà vu, as someone else mentioned in this thread.

I know last night I was dreaming about running through towering shelves (hundreds of feet taller than me) full of fruit loops, chasing a crush of mine. The weird thing is that I was looking at myself in the third person from way above, almost like in a zoomed-out video game.

The other thing is (as mentioned by others) that I'm not usually myself in a dream. Certainly I realize I'm the main character in the dream, but I don't identify with who I am in real life. Sometimes I'm a character from some movie, anime, TV show, book, etc.

The other thing is that no one ever speaks in my dreams. Certainly I, as the main character, _think_ ... and sometimes I understand the thoughts or motives of other characters in my dreams, but there's never any actual speech.

There are probably more oddities, but I can't think of them right now. The main things are not being myself, no color, no speech, usually no faces (I can't remember people's faces when I'm dreaming, I just know that that faceless person is person XYZ from real life), seeing it like it's a faraway and small picture, etc.

I get that, too!

And the "not myself" thing, sometimes.

I had a dream that involved the point of view zipping from inside my head to inside Jude Law's head. More notable than being Jude Law was that he was playing the only normal man in a huge room full of depraved, feral men feeding from giant slop piles. And apparently all this was hidden within the coffee shop where I used to work, to the point that female employees no longer believed in the existence of male employees... so I got to run around being really nervous for the remainder of the dream .

I've heard that only one in a thousand people dream in color, yet that percentage does not pan out with those I've asked.
Many of the dreams that I remember often have one common theme to them - it's that I'm pretty successful at whatever I'm doing.
Also, occasionally I have dreams where I'm naked [] and no one seems to mind. woo hoo!!!

Many years later he dreamt that he gave the bicycle back.

Oh, and I usually dream in color ...

I dream in color, too. I don't think I can remember even one dream that I've not had in color. Maybe the 1 in 1,000 thing is just an urban legend? Or maybe we only think we're dreaming in color and it's some sort of cognitive issue?

Dream in black and white? I had heard that but have as of yet to experience it.

So I dream in color. And the scariest dreams I have are the ones I can remember. The rest become a blurr or nonexistent to me.

Am I the only one here that can control there dreams?
