I had a dream last night that was kind of creepy. It started in a school in a room where a bunch of people were having a meeting. This woman bursts in, falls over, and is going into some kind of spasmic fit while screaming "THEY LOCKED US IN! THEY LOCKED US IN AND LEFT US TO DIE!" or something of the sort, and everyone's like WTF? and then it turns out the woman is a zombie and she attacks someone and eats their brain. Chaos ensues but I think everyone escaped unscathed but I didn't stick around to find out. Then I was talking with Mom about zombies and about how close people are to barbarism and cannibalism. Then I say, "Zombies spread because of a virus, right? What if that virus went airborne?" And Mom said, "If that happens, we are well and truly FUCKED."
And then I sensed some zombies coming from behind and did something that I love doing in dreams: jumping higher than possible on Earth in order to run away.

The night before, I had another of those annoying "driving and my eyes are closing on their own and I can't get them open" dreams. This time I was actually the "copilot," either that or we were in Britain and the other person was the copilot. Either way, when I realized they weren't going to open up, I pulled over (how I managed this with my eyes closed, I dunno). When I finally got my eyes open, I woke up.
I used to think those kinds of dreams were caused by the fact that when I used to drive between Creston and Osceola to get to and from work, I would have difficulty staying awake because the drive was so desperately dull. It was a real worry for quite a few months, but I solved that problem eventually and anyway, I haven't drove for almost 3 years. I suppose it could still have some deeper meaning, but I have a new theory as to why I still have those dreams. You see, when I sleep I often have this strange problem of being partially awake while sleeping. I don't know quite how to explain it, but I can sense parts of the outside world while I'm asleep, and I'm aware of being asleep and dreaming and so if a dream goes somewhere I don't like, I can usually redirect it. And while that part of it is good, I think it causes some problems in me, like making sleep less restful. I also think it might be the cause of the "can't open my eyes" dreams - I think there's some kind of mistake happening sometimes where my dreamself thinks *my* body is its body and of *course* MY eyes are closed.
