dream: apes and marriages
a bunch of us were in the jungle climbing some trees. a road ran through the middle of it. we wanted to keep playing, but then we saw some big apes. the apes were mad because we were in their territory and so they wanted to kill us. so, we ran through the jungle to try to get away from them. they didn't chase us, just watched us and we were running downhill a little bit, so eventually when we looked back over our shoulders we couldn't see them any more. we crossed the road and ran down into a ravine and hid there. i wanted to go for help so i went off on my own. i ran along the shoulder of the road so i wouldn't get hit by a car. there was a fatherly looking man standing on the side of the road directing 18-wheelers where to turn to deliver their goods. i didn't want to stop running for fear that the apes were following behind me, so as i ran past i yelled to him that we needed help. he thought i was just some punk kid pranking, so he just continued his work. as i ran i slowly left the jungle and the area around me turned into wheat fields and farm land. off in the distance to my left side i saw a clearing and at the back of the clearing were some trees that looked good. i wanted to climb up them and just hide there. i didn't want people to find me any more than i wanted the apes to find me. my motives for running had chancged. now i just wanted to live in peace on my own in the woods. i ran to the edge of the woods because some people were walking along the road and i didn't want them to see me. i climbed up a small tree to hide, but as i climbed i realized i was climbing up a mirror. i thought this would still be good to hide behind so i stayed there for a few seconds. i glanced down and looked in the mirror to see what was behind me and i saw a beautiful white colonial farm house that looked empty. i decided this would be a better place to live than in the woods, so i decided to make a run for it. i managed to get to the back of the hosue without the people from the road seeing me, and so i went inside. i heard some noise coming from a room upstairs, so i decided to go up and investigate. it turned out that RJ had found this house a long time ago and had made it a place where we could get married and live in together. he was upstairs in the bedroom waiting to surprise me. the only catch was that it was all a secret, no one could know that we were living in the house. we snuggled up in a bed and were looking out the window at the fields in front of the house when i saw something coming towards the house. it was the people from the road that i was hiding from earlier. it was a man and a woman, the woman was wearing a wedding gown. we decided the best thing for us to do would be to hide in the bedroom and stay quiet. the man and woman entered the house and began to look around. for some reason i went downstairs. the house had changed and now ryan and i were in a guest house behind the main house. the man and woman were in the main house. i wanted to get a closer look so i snuck inside. i was hiding behind some stairs, but the woman found me. she wasn't mad that we were living in the guest house. they were only going to use the main house for their wedding. it turns out they had won the location through a radio station that was giving away weddings. i continued to talk with the couple about their wedding for a few minutes, when i looked out the window toward the guest house. in the upstairs window a television set was glaring bright. i said to myself, "good thing these people don't care that we are here, or else that tv would give us away for sure." rj and i decided that we would let these people use the house and we wouldn't live there. we began to walk back to my parents' house to tell them the news. when we got there my mom was running around the yard with the dog. my dad was videotaping her. i looked into the camera and it looked like she was wearing a pink flowing dress, but when i looked back at her i could tell it was just a trick of the light.

So...I was just driving home from work and I was in the left turn lane of my street. A car pulled up next to me with two guys and two girls, about my age or maybe a couple years younger. I glances over and took a quick peek at the car, then I decided to change the radio station so I looked down. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something moving back and forth so I looked back over at the car and the guy in the back seat was waving at me. He smiled and held up a disposable camera with a goofy grin so I laughed and smiled, and he took my picture. That was one of the most unique things that has ever happened to me. In retrospect I am now wondering if he took my picture because he thought I was pretty, or because he thought I was funny looking, haha!
