    there's a Goodwill donation station near where I work. it closes at five and i get off work at six or later (depending on my schedule). so when i pass by it on the way to the busstop there are often a lot of after-hours donations dumped at its door. i have to admit, i have been known to take stuff that catches my eye. (who's it going to go to otherwise, some cripple in a wheelchair? besides, i'm not the only after-hours shopper there) on friday i found some kid's dream journal - a notebook specifally made for dreams with black pages that you write your dreams in with a white marker. there are several entries scrawled out on unlined black paper in a floating text that sometimes looks like alphabet soup in black tar broth (imagine you could bang the side of your computer and jumble the sorabji text). but i find them interesting.

    I had this dream
    Dream title: Boot Camp #1
    Date: Unknown
    Cast: My 5th grade class, Mrs. Apostle, Goblins, A strange monk
    Location: Mrs Apostles room, & a castle somewhere in the world
    What happened? During math class Emmanuel said “This stuff sucks” so Miss Apostle says “OK, I’ll send you to Medival boot camp”. So we went & picked our weapons & after a bit of practice we all took baths & (to my horror) Aaron made out with my cousin Amber. I for, some reason was, out with a monk with a key around his neck that opened the vents so he could get around the castle fast. Suddenly I heard Jenny cry, “Bunny’s DEAAAD!” Bunny was Tessa, who was speared in the head by goblins. To end the dream I started reading my Final F[?????] VIII Players Guide & said: “That’s tragic.”

    I had this dream
    Dream Title: Jackers
    Date: 2/28/03
    Cast: Me, Travis Cox, a Hispanic man, & a Hispanic gang & Levi
    Location: My house, a parking garage, & Lily B. Clayton [a Fort Worth elementary school].
    What happened: On my brother’s birthday he gets a buch of toys including Magneto, Superman, Batman, & Spiderman. Travis is at the party & we go steal Levi’s toys, grab him while we’re at it & walk to a parking garage. All of the toys have special properties, like Batman can glide, Spiderman has a hook he can swing on, Superman can also glide, & best of all Magneto can magnitize to things. When we reach the garage we meet a Hispanic man who is interested in Levi’s toys so we let him play with them. Soon a Hispanic gang came along & jacked the toys & jacked them up to sorta gangsterize them. Then the Hispanic man, who still had Magneto said we should run so we grabbed a motercycle & he told us to go twards the window, to the ground 5 stories away. So we did. While this was happening he had jacked up the Magneto to have a super high electro magnet on a string! Using Magneto we swing on a tree out of the parking garage & on to my street! While we were driving towards Lily B. the gangsters started following us on a motercycle. I asked the man how he knew how to jack up that toy & he said he was part of the gang. Travis got mad at him & took over the motercycle. When he tried to swing onto the roof of Lily B. but misses & hits the bushes & we tumble over the air conditioner & in the process knock out the gang. We get the toys back & jack them & as we go home the man says “Not all jackers are bad!”

    I had this dream
    Dream title: Boot Camp #3
    Date: Unknown
    Cast: Me, my Dad, Aaron, Aaron’s dad, a red-haired girl named Emily
    Location: Some weird city & under water
    What happened: It was summer I was on vaction from my boot camp job in some weird city by the ocean with my dad. I met a red-haired girl named Emily & fall in love with her. I finally break the ice with her & she asks me on the weirdest date ever. She wants some company going below the sea to assasinate an evil blobular skeletonman. So Aaron, me, my dad, & her go under water (we can somehow breathe) to search for his city. Underwater I learn Emily can transform into any plant she wants to. Mostly carnivorous ones. After a day of hard walking (?) we stop to rest & Emily goes off to turn into a purple plant that spews poison [here he has drawn a picture of a flower ] out of a hole in it & to sleep she sleeps in a crowd of plants just like them & I get the honor of waking her up. Me We walk more twords the Jelliskeleton city & Emily & I converse a whole lot along the way holding hands. We finally get there & learn it has a parking lot. We go inside & I stop for a drink at the Hard Rock cafe only to meet Jelliskeleton himself. He warns me to stay away because he is deadly to the touch & I left my sword outside. “Someone in your group will betray you.” He warns. These words haunt me until we reach a courtyard with Jelliskeleton’s picture at the entrance. Emily goes into the middle of the yard & says “Yes…” then becomes Jelliskeleton. Emily was Jelli! We run out of the town with Jelli at our heels & grab a SUV from the parking lot & Aaron, who is driving, runs Jelliskeleton over. As we drive away my heartbreak sets in. I wake up.

    Note! Aaron has a tail in all the boot camp dreams.

    I want to have this dream
    Dream Title: The real Emily (or) Boot Camp #7
    Date: 3/3/03 or any time
    Cast: Me, red head Emily, Jelliskeleton

    Location: Jelliskeleton city

    What happened? I run away from the castle, plauged by memories of who Emily would be & determined that she does exist. I go to the sea & sink to the bottom, walking nonstop to Jelliskeletons city [“castle” is written and crossed out]. It is now a fort. I break down the door of the fort & take out many jelligoblins before getting dragged to dungeon. I then trick the guard who gives me a food & water & escape. I sneak in the night to the court yard where Jelliskeleton revealed himself. I try everthing, knowing this is where Emily is & my love for her opens a tunnel that leads to Jelliskeletons lair who has Emily as a flower in a pot. We duel & I slay him & Emily turns back into a human & kisses me. Hand in hand we walk wherever the hell we want.

    Note: I want Emily to be my girlfriend

    I had this dream

    location: My house
    what happened: I am in my house. There are a lot of people & I know I am going to die soon. I have eaten a poisonous berry. The Kingpin from Spiderman has offered to put me to death by putting a crystal cane around my neck. I said goodbye to everyone. I go to die in Levi's room & find Michael Fine. He asks why I have to go. I say "I'll be waiting!" then I lay on the bed, put the cane around my neck & die

    Note: This dream was not in the least bit scary. It was oddly satisfying. I felt at peace when I died & it was a good experience

Feeling guilty, I run away, remembering Emily. I meet another homeless person the next day, an old man, who tells me that Veronica has run off to the Temple of Darkness to help Dillon fight an evil wizard from the Dark World. I rush to the Temple, sword in hand and help Veronica & Dillon slay the wizard. Veronica, who is fighting with a bladed comb(!), slashes at the wizard. The wizard blasts at her with a ray of pure darkness but Dillon jumps in the way (he fights with a sword too) & is killed by the blast instead of Veronica. Blinded with rage I stab the wizard through the heart & he evaporates leaving a portal to the dark world. Dillon gives us one last word: "Go to the dark world, find my last message on the phantom plateau." Then he too evaporates. I start to enter the portal but Veronica says we're in this together. We enter the Dark World & come out of the portal in a courtyard containing a seal of a moon on the grass in the middle. I look down at my bare feet & weave some shoes out of the grass for them, then set off for Phantom Plateau.

Veronica & I fight with her & win, exiting the bus we go into the garden on the plateau & find a picture of a Poe from Zelda [? - ed.] on the wall. We touch it, & with Dillon's voice it says: "I'm not really dead." Then Dillon appears behind us and we rejoice, at getting him back.

    Those are awesome. This kid should be a writer. Any name in there, so you can send him a letter?

    The one reference to Final Fantasy really puts these dreams in

By droopy on Sunday, July 23, 2006 - 03:52 pm:

    thank you, sem. it looks like "Final Fartay" in the journal, though i assumed it was some video game. i haven't played a video game since my last game of 'space invaders' in 1985. there are references to comic book merchandise and harry potter. any other references people can pick out would be welcome. i couldn't find "jelliskeleton" in a google search, but i did find jelli fungi and "tree ears", which then made me think of the bosch sketch the forest that hears and the field that sees. makes me wonder if some kid in the 16th century ever had crazy-ass dreams inspired by bosch paintings.

    I've dreamt about Magneto. I've had maybe 3 dreams in the past 3 months in which I was an X-Man (X-person), and they were, like, real and a video game at the same time.
