Right, more details.

I had been a regular at my local ice-skating venue since the 90s, except this venue was more like a laser tag warehouse. It was setup in a capture the flag configuration, with three bases and instead of flags there was an area with 25 bowling pins, each 2 meters tall).

The arena was over multiple levels, with ice coated surfaces mixed in with walls, steps, slopes etc. Each contestant had a special suit with built in laser, skates and backpack. The laser had three buttons, one to fire it, one to retract/deploy the blade on the skates, so you could easily traverse icy and non icy terrain. The third button controlled what was in the backpack. A bowling ball that acted like Mjolnir or the disc in Tron in that if you threw the ball, when you pressed the button it would return to you.

The basic premise of the game was that you would shoot people, this would charge up your ball, which you would then use to knock over the pins. The team with the most pins standing at the end of a game wins.

So, this was a massive fad in the 90s, really popular, but now had declined, so that only a dedicated hardcore still went, but it had become more of a social thing, people went to hang out and chill, catch up with each other, and certain rooms had been setup with unofficial side games where quirks of the game had been exploited so that if rival teams cooperated then you could build things with the balls. (Unfortunately I can't remember what).

Recently a newer faction had started coming to the venue, playing the game like the old style, not respecting the unwritten rules. I had a confrontation with two of them, complained to the admin about them, but they couldn't do anything because the rules were unofficial. So I found a spot a knew about where I couldn't be shot, but could easily shoot into their base, and just kept on shooting the two players, effectively ruining the game for them and their team.

They complained about me, and it was initially upheld as I was targeting them it was seen as bullying, so I was suspended, so I appealed and in an open room confronted them. They wouldn't see Spence, so I decided to leave, thinking it was late, I realised it was actually 7:15 in the morning. Panicking I went to claim my shoes but someone had stollen them and I had to walk home in my socks.

Last night I dreamed I was at my old school and as I arrived to the school there was a lot of hubbub and a man was in chains and cuffs and being forcably removed from the premises. The last of the children were leaving for the day as it was home time. As the guards passed the guy was hollering and they said it was lucky they caught him as god knows what he might have done.

Later I was walking in the corridor adjacent to the main hall when an almighty roar started out. It was not human. I rushed to look through the hall window and saw the back of the man who had previously been led away a prisoner. He had escaped! There were dead teachers in the hall. As he turned to me his face was now that of a warewolf.

I started to run, but the door at the end of the corridor was locked. I tried to turn back but the warewolf had emerged at the end of the corridor and I was trapped between him and the locked door as he advanced and I woke up.

Real life: Yesterday at the hospital there were patients in handcuffs and long chains, each chained to a guard. That evening, at the supermarket, as we arrived there was a big hubbub inside, bear the entrance. A big crowd of staff and customers were standing around whilst ‘Simon’ was being escorted off the premises. ‘That’s disgusting, Simon, you can’t do that. I can’t believe he did that. Get out of here Simon. What a disgrace you are!’. Simon was a staff member. Before bed my BFF when I was 4-11 dropped me a line asking if we could reminisce about our school before she moved to the US.

When your friend moves to the US are they not allowed to remember their previous life?

Haha. I meant she moved to the US when she was 11, and she asked if we could reminisce about our school day’s before she had moved out there.

Last night's dream was like a bad 'Tales of the unexpected' episode.

My brother and I were playing on some games console, but rather than being hooked up to a TV, you watched the action take place within the console itself. At one point in the game, a little man is chasing another until one of them falls down a small hole. We figure that's the end of the game and we then see that one of the screws of the console is being unscrewed from the inside and the little man is trying to get out. We block the panel of the console from being unscrewed until we can grab a cup, at which point we let the man continue his way out of the console and let him drop into the cup.

Thinking it's some elaborate hacking/virus spreading thing, we set the cup down and go to look back at the console. When we return to the cup, the man was gone... and then I woke up.

At this point in the episode, it would be revealed that I was dead and the little man typed this.

(I should probably ease off playing Binding of Isaac...)

Coronavirus: Oxford professor on sleep during lockdown.

Dunno about you, but I've been having some dreams with Coronavirus elements over the last few weeks.

Weird and vivid one last night: I'd gone to Asda after work to buy a few things we'd been unable to get on our last delivery. I walked the whole store, following the arrows on the floor, and didn't see anything we needed by the time I'd got to the exit. Then I remembered I hadn't looked for Jordan's oats, so I turned around to go back but a member of staff grabbed my wrist and said I'd have to go around the store again from the start.

The oddest thing about this was that I was aware of her actual grip on my wrist. I've never had a feeling of physical contact like that in a dream before.

Anyroadup, I went out of the store and was aware that Martin Clunes was walking along beside me, wearing a black coat. He struck up a conversation with me, can't remember the details, but he got closer and c!oser and then tried to kiss me. I pulled away and said he wasn't maintaining the 2m distancing, and I became aware of two gay guys behind us who said something like "We can see what's going on here, we'll leave you in peace."

I just walked away.

FIN.

I’ve just woken from a dream where we were having a party at our flat. We and our guests had been virus tested and it was the first time we’d seen anyone since March 4th. They must have stayed over as it was morning, and everyone was asking for McMuffins, but we weren’t sure it was safe or if the drive through was open. At least one person from on here was there.

People were slowly disbanding, when Russell said that he was going off with some friend (I think it was Winston from 13 Reasons Why), in his car to his house. The virus had made the world a desolate wasteland outside, so I was upset, because how was he going to get home? On the plague bus? He shrugged and shh’d me so Winston didn’t hear, and left. Then my Nan, who I’d not noticed until then, fainted. I tried to fix her. Time jumped forwards, everyone had left. Russell returned. He was drunk and stupid. He grabbed Darwin and spun him around, kissed him over. He was covered in cigarette butts and old wrappers, like he’d been in an actual gutter, and he was now smothering our little boy. I pulled him away, got upset and sent him to shower.

He sobered up and returned. My Ma was there, and nan, Russell and Darwin. I said I couldn’t take it any more and was going for a walk.

I got my mask on, and went.

I walked through the arboretum. It was empty as most people had died. The bowling green had gone because nobody used it as elderly people were the only ones that ever bowled, and they’d replaced it with play equipment, as the young had been the ones who had survived. It was empty, though. The play equipment was also absolutely huge, to the point that it was scary.

I passed by someone slumped at the foot of a tree, face eaten away, and couldn’t tell if they were dead or dying. They groaned. It was a horrible think to hear.

I hurried on through the park and ended up in the high street of a seaside. I’m not sure which, but I think it was Brighton. It was bright sunshine and REALLY busy. I was panicked because of being stuck shoulder to shoulder with so many people. I put my head down and tried to get through.

Eventually I came to the train station, or so I thought. It was tiny. Like the corridor alongside the little compartments of an old fashioned train carriage, all beautiful dark wood, all warm and homely, but there was a woman in front of me coughing. I got to the ticket window and a absolutely lovely young person explained no, I was two miles away from the ticket station I was looking for, I was just at a local railway. I said ok, thank you, I could walk, I must have got lost. We both giggled, and I left the station.

Outside it was now black. Darker than any night. I could not see 4 inches in font of mr, but could just about sometimes make out the faintest glow behind the inky black clouds. Suddenly there was a flash and the whole world went white. I was knocked flat off my feet and into my back, but didn’t land. I was just hovering there. Couldn’t feel my body or where I was in space. There was no sound. I was waiting for the thunder, but it never came. I was waiting for the thud as I hit the ground, but I never did. I wasn’t falling, just suspended. Then I realised that I must have been hit by lightning and was going to have to realise that I’d died. And I woke up trying to come to terms with that.

I’ve had a lot of messed up dreams. My meds don’t help, but I know a lot of people have been having vivid dreams since lockdown. This one was just SO MUCH, though, and a really complex thing to wake up from as I realised I was still here. I’ve had a few dreams where I wake up ‘knowing’ I’m dead, and it is really difficult to try and realise where you are as you come around. I find myself not knowing what to believe for a good while whilst I find myself.

Yes. I get that after most dreams, but the ones where you realise you are dead or (rapidly) dying seem to be the ones I find it hardest to find the ‘present’ in when I wake up.

Wow, you got your money's worth on that one.

I wonder why it is that sometimes we can remember a really long and vivid dream in so much detail, while at other times I know I've had a comp!ex dream but can only remember one or two bits of it.

I find it has a lot to do with the point in the night when I am dreaming and when I wake up. This was at about 8:30, and I’d already been awake at 7 when Darwin woke up, and gone back to sleep after that, and I find that dreams I have in the morning seem to stick. Ones I have in the night, wake up from and are vivid, but then get back to sleep seem to just have little vivid moments in them by the next day and feel rather more disjointed.

I did type that as soon as I woke up, too. I had been awake only two or three minutes.

I just woke after falling asleep in the lving room, with this dream still fresh.

I was with a big group of staff with whom I used to work in the civil service. We were out of the office at a conference centre and were taking a break. I was sitting at a desk and one of my colleages said, 'It's Jaime and Vicky's anniversary, we need to buy them something, quick." There was a shop in the conference centre, so I went in to look for something and all I could find that was remotely suitable were some books. I hastily chose two and went back to the desk to write a message inside each one. Everyone was telling me to hurry up as we didn't have much time left, but I was struggling to find the right words. Just then, totally involunterily, I let out an enormously loud arse burnng, paint stripping fart and immediately said, "Ohh, I'm terribly sorry," and kept my head down, working on the books. I could tell that a lot of people were stiffling laughter, which just embarrassed me more, and I was making a mess of writing the greetings, crossing out and rewriting the one in Jaime's book, then gave up and tried to do the one in Vicky's, but then I realised it was a terribly cheap and cheesy romance that was completely unsuitable for her, even the paper was cheap and nasty, ripping as I tried to write in it. One of my colleagues said he wanted to have a look, and I was trying to say we'd have to get them something else as I'd made a mess of both books and didn't want anyone to see what I'd done.

Then I woke up.

Last night I had a dream where I was staying in some kind of B&B/higher end youth hostel with the family. Just getting ready for breakfast when @nervousPete phoned me. It was difficult to hear because of the general noise, but he had a *really* strong Welsh accent I’d never noticed before. He was just phoning to say hi, asking how D was getting on, etc. Nothing much more happened, but it was sweet :)

A Godzilla-type monster who stalked the railway network eating train drivers. I woke up before I could learn if this entitled you to a delay-repay refund.

I have prophetic dreams very often. I dream about people whom I will see on this or the next day. I always dream about teeth before illness. When money "arrives", I dream about how I play in the casino or cards. Just recently I decided to relax my brain a little bit in quarantine and came across. Never tried anything like this, I'm pleasantly surprised. :p :p :p
