I went to the grocery store but they weren't scanning any items, you just had to guess at how much money you owed them and filled out a really time-consuming form on their computer with an amount you thought would cover it.

I was on a spaceship that I think was a school. I was new there, and I might have been from the past and dealing with futureshock. They were doing an improv night. There were these massive planet-sized space ships you could see out the window. When they travelled they left a glowing red swirl that tapered off into a point the direction they were going. My friend's sister worked on one of them. Every once in a while, all the students would go home to really normal suburban houses.

There was a marketplace I went to where you could buy fresh produce and everything was in Dutch.

I was Bart Simpson and I had to leave home early to catch a bus, but ended up convincing Marge to take us to a volcano instead. Then I was at the store and decided not to buy anything but I didn't want to leave without anything so I got a pack of gum. The cashier opened up my gum and took a piece. Then I had a to go to a dinner with the landlord for a place I wanted to move to and everyone was trying not to make a mess so it wouldn't look like we were messy people who would be bad tenants.

I watched a cartoon someone made to advertise their AI startup where the whole thing was just cartoon people praising how functional a cartoon robot was.

I was in highschool but I was wandering around the school instead of going to classes. I got on an elevator and it turned out that in addition to going to another floor it also went sideways and became some kind of shuttle that traveled outside the school.

I was traveling to a city on a light rail train. Someone announced over some loudspeakers that they were going to shut off the power in the surrounding area. They shut off the power but the train had enough momentum that it still got to the city. I'd forgotten to bring a jacket but I'd brought a laptop I had to uselessly lug around. I got off the train and when I went to put my mask on there was a little soccer ball in it.

I visited a small town in Florida where they had a giant castle that had collapsed in on itself, but you could still go inside and take tours of it. I didn't want to tour it but I needed to use their restroom so I went in. I ran into one of my friends there and apparently they knew the owner of the place. You were required to where a hat while you were in there and there were a bunch of random hats strewn about.

There was a dark room you could go into and offer up pizza to some sort of powerful being and if you did you would gain an immense amount of power, but when I went in there they didn't want my pizza for some reason.

I visited a business that did Icelandic translations. They also sold a bunch of random English books. I talked to the owner of the place and they said that the books sold really well.

I lived on the fourth floor of an apartment building and decided to take the stairs, which ended up going through other people's apartments. There was some kind of bacteria I was supposed to try to grow that would grow in the shape of objects, but I didn't want to bother taking care of it. I watched a remake of Kung Fu Panda where it abruptly ended like 20 minutes into the film.

There was a big circle of people sitting and hanging out on the floor of a giant room. They were doing some kind of quiz contest and my group went first. The person running the quiz read all the available answers to choose from, but I wasn't paying attention. They refused to read the options again and spent a bunch of time adjusting their glasses. After a long time they reread them and I got the question wrong. A friend I haven't seen in a while was there and they thought it was kind of funny.

I visited a synagogue during a Jewish holiday and there were a lot of people there. I had a very hard time finding a kippah that would fit on my big head. I ran into a few people I knew there.

In the dream I hadn't been at home for a while and my bed changed while I was gone. I woke up in the dream very confused about where I was and wandered outside on a bunch of balconies. I ended up making a neighbor angry and when I eventually figured out where I was they took me to their wife and I had to explain that I didn't know what was going on and that I wasn't really sure what I did to make them angry.

I was staying in a camper out in the middle of nowhere. I went to visit a big house nearby that they used for events like family reunions. It had multiple floors that you had to travel through one at a time and it turned out that the whole place was a store that sold t-shirts and frozen food. I didn't want to get anything but one of my friends was there and they bought a bunch of food. There was also a frog in a sink somewhere.

There was this ditch full of water that people liked swimming in, except they'd never check whether it had water in it before jumping in and they'd always be relieved that it wasn't empty.

I was with a group of people living in a world where going outside was illegal. Everything around was an artificial facade obscurring the real world. We snuck out and were planning to go camping like we used to. There were some birds outside that kept trying to chase us.

I played some sort of computer game with other people. It was a side-scrolling puzzle game where on each level you had to find a door to the next level. It also had items you could get and on one level I traveled to another dimension and got some kind of lantern that that was forged in a way that it didn't didn't technically exist in the way normal physical matter does.

I got a whole pile of random stuff from a thrift store that all used to belong to the same person. Some of the contents included a bag of cat food with a large wad of cash inside and a wrapped up brick of something labeled "For Ned - Do Not Open". I visited the house of someone who was somehow connected to the original owner of the stuff but I never got a chance to ask them about who it all belonged to.

I had a bunch of blankets and a pillow set up in the middle of a sidewalk because I liked sleeping there sometimes. There was a comic that me and another person could edit the speech bubbles on and we sometimes used it to communicate.
