The dream started out with me being in the states (you have one guess as to why), and for some reason I can't remember, I decided I'd be better off at home, and started walking. All I remember about that was seeing snow on the ground, walking along the side of a country road, and feeling sort of overwhelmed at the prospect of walking such a long way, and how it was my own fault for being in that situation. The next thing I can remember was walking up to the front door of the house, and inside from there. The first thing I noticed was two or three oddly shapen leopard-spotted balloons (picture the shape of the Google Maps marker, except bent slightly in the middle) that were white. Maybe those extra tidbits have significance, but regardless, I went into the kitchen from there to check for anything new, then back into the living room to grab a couple of the balloons, because I was planning to decorate my room with them. What would I find there but Dad crumpling them up (it was as if they were made of paper) and throwing them away, so I said "What the hell?", then he turned around and asked what the matter was, and my response was something along the lines of using them to decorate my room. He said "Oh, the pointing balloons? I put a couple out by the garage", and I quickly pictured them in my mind sitting along the side, but instead of going out there, I went up to my room, which was rather different. My bed was placed at the center of the far wall, instead of being in the corner as it is now, and there was no longer a top bunk on it, let alone the supports to hold one up. Also, the door to the spare room wasn't there, my carpet was different (picture something like this, except brighter and more dense), and there was this unnatural yet pleasant glow coming from the window or some unknown source. I laid down in bed planning to go to sleep, thinking about what had happened and feeling really tired from the walk, and just as I was about to drift off, I woke up in real life.
That is, amusingly, one of the more entertaining things that happened today though, because otherwise I've fought with myself for a bit about going out somewhere for snacks, which in the end I decided not to do because it came down to me just wanting to spend money, then also did my laundry, and finally finished the Trans Dimension area in Starforce 2. Apollo Flame was a little more difficult than in Starforce 3, but by far the worst was Hollow. Four times I fought him, where the first three saw me die when he had 60, some amount I don't remember, and 6 HP left. Kung Foo Kid wasn't bad, especially considering that was the first time I had even seen him and still won on the second battle. Following the trend, I should start playing Starforce 3: Red Joker now, but I'm thinking of completely finishing the first two games before that. I've completed the secret areas in both, yes, but there's still stuff to be done, which mostly comes down to defeating all special versions of the bosses and therefore collecting all the Mega cards. Then also unlocking the remaining gates in Deep Space and Trans Dimension 2, but just so I can say there is absolutely nothing left to do in those games. The problem with that, however, is the boss fighting and Mega card collecting is done in areas you'd have already cleared by then - ie, there's nothing new to be found. Mind you, there's apparently still several HPMemories waiting to be found in Starforce 2, because I only have 910 right now, but the same point applies, moreso because the only definite way to tell if you've collected each one is to visit the places they're found at and see.
Oh, and I also finally sent out an email to say I got that little sculpture in the mail on Tuesday, which took me such a long time because I was trying to think of something less shallow than "It's awesome" to say. That would be the last thing I was expecting in the mail, but being September, I'll be starting to look for Christmas presents soon, then also earlier tonight I bought two more guides. If anything, I consider myself a collector. Everything contained in the book(s) may be available for free online, but I still want them to see what extra stuff they contain. Sadly, it appears the only ones that applies to are those in Japanese, but that hasn't stopped me yet. On a completely different note, one of these supper shifts I have starting tomorrow will see me working with Sheila until 8pm, and if I know her, she'll use the opportunity to bring up me watching her dogs in December again. If she does, I'm just going to say that I can't do it. She wants me to start on either the day before or after my birthday, and even though I may not have big plans, I don't want to be in that sort of position. Anything else will have to wait until tomorrow though, to ensure I get a decent sleep and am awake in time to not rush through breakfast and whatever else and still get to work on time. Speaking of which, I have to go to Money Mart before Taco Bell tomorrow, but once again, that can wait~
