Woke up to another strange dream. This one seemed at first to do with some giant dormitory, but then it turned into a dream about Macy's department store.
Two bits I remember most clearly:
Somehow or other I wound up giving a fashion lecture, partially sponsored by Macy's. It wasn't done on stage though, but delivered from a hotel room near a Macy's. People were lined up down the hall, stairwells, and into the street. All I would do is sit there in my room and tell people one by one some tips on thriftshopping or mix-and-matching or how to look retro. At one point I decided to give up on one-by-one and I let in around 10 people, who I told to sit on the queen-sized beds. This is the only "lecture" I vaguely remember: me telling people how often it only looks like my clothes are old when they aren't, although they are mixed with old things. Once again, marchenland
showed up in one of my dreams; she was there nodding and then adding some additional tips about doing alternations to things from thrift stores, to make them more what you wanted.
The second thing I remember from the dream is a bit of Caleb going crazy over some plants. We were leaving Macy's and suddenly he saw a double-row of trees near the parking lot. It was this odd planting where in between the rows of trees were "shelves" of other plants, enclosed in clear glass like a terranium. Anyway, Caleb sees this and suddenly yells and says something about some plants being in there that he MUST rescue because it's not growing right. He runs and starts to SCALE this giant plant thing! I back away and sit down, embarrassed and thinking the cops might come. Then I notice that Caleb has magically shrunk himself down to about 1-in. tall and is running around inside the terrarium. (I can see this because for dream-purposes, the whole thing is much smaller, like a lot of terrariums stacked on top of one another.) I see Caleb running past frogs, toads, then some giant snakes, and I yell to warn him about it, because I don't want him eaten by reptiles! Some people walking by stare at me and say "Why are you shouting at those empty terrariums?" and I say my friend in in there. They think I'm crazy -- because they don't see the tiny little Caleb running around to rescue the plant!
I also dreamt something like a screwball comedy involving a woman and mistress playing a joke on their man, plus some other dream about Bil from Outworlders.
I swear, the human brain comes up with WEIRD stuff!
