This entry and all others from 1996-97 are part of my dream project which extended from August 1996-97. I kept track of my dreams for an entire year by recording them to audiocassette and illustrating what parts I could in composition books. I ended up with over 70 ninety-minute cassettes and four composition books detailing my dreams.
The written transcription is from a much later date than 1996-97 but is almost word-for-word, with some slight corrections and omissions. This typed transcription is not 100% faithful to the original verbal account, as it allows for slight modifications, additions, omissions, and corrections. There are new separations between paragraphs and dreams are separated into different entries at approximately the right places. In addition, segments of dreams MAY be transposed/moved/added to other sections as I see fit. Aside from these modifications, these dreams are detailed exactly as I had them over six years ago.
This dream may or may not have been related to/shifted out of "Mmm, Underwear!"
I think I was with a group of men; there was this guy who was sort of crazy, but he wasn't crazy because he was mentally insane, he was crazy because something had happened to him. I think perhaps he had been thrown into shock, so he was crazy and these men were either looking for him or trying to help him somehow. As for him, he was looking for his friend for some reason. This seemed to be taking place in my house. They gave him a substitute or placebo for something or someone, because he couldn't find what he was looking for. *shrug*
I believe this was the same dream. I think I was a man, somebody else, and I was stooping down near some kind of gadget that was sitting in the living room between the cabinets and the footstool. It had some plastic circles on it, clear plastic circles attached to a bunch of other things; I was pulling each piece off and taking everything apart. I pulled off the plastic circles and pulled them apart and looked at them. For some reason I was going to find some kind of use for them because I needed them for something, maybe to help the crazy man; I don't know.
* Clear plastic circles. [side arrow] this thick. [down arrows] (could these help the crazy man somehow??)
