Walking by a river, looking for the path. I find it, and M, S & I take it. C goes on another path by the river. Walk through the woods a bit and come to a building. Climb the stairs, go in and it’s an interpretive center. Walk around. I light a cigarette and leave the way we came.
Walking down a street in Santa Monica? Brian May leans out the window to say hi. I shake his hand and ask him how he’s doing.
In an elevator with Earl T and a few others. We go up, I want to go to our floor, but Earl wants to go to each floor on the playlist. We go to the top floor (it’s the Sears Tower), and the elevator is rolling back and forth as the building sways. One of the others is scared, but I say it’s expected and the car won’t roll off. It rolls back and forth a few times. I get out and go over to the door leading onto the roof.
Coming back from something. We walk through a field and up a hill by OHS?, I realize my jacket is missing. M thinks it’s on the train. I walk back and it’s in the car. Pick it up and walk back through a field and up a hill. It starts raining, M starts to run-I say it’s moving too fast, and get under a tree. It’s dripping a lot, and I run for it too, down the drive to Brady Middle School. We look into some of the rooms along the drive.
At work, sitting outside in my car. Try to make it so I can work there. Sit in the back seat, open up the roof.
In an office, someone is dropping stuff on my head. I get really mad.
Driving down a country road, someone is trying to pass. I get scared, and pull over. They get in front of us and slow down.
Onstage setting up for a gig. I have a second effects mike I’m trying to set up. I have a few pedals to put on it and lots of compression. Go back to the board to get the channel set up, need a mike to test. Got to the fallback, then back on stage. Unpack a super fancy mike with all sorts of stuff on it. They want to save it, so it sort of pack it back up.
At church, watching a PBS program. Someone calls in and sits there waiting to hear their voice. I yell at them to talk. Someone else does it. I go back to watching the program.
On Mars, trying to figure out why plants didn’t grow. Go outside and talk to the researcher about it. Go right to the cliff, and it’s only 10 feet down. Go back inside, then out the other way. There are several steps back up to the house.
On a helicopter, trying to get away from someone chasing us. We lose power and crash land. We get out and go home (30700). The pilot is treating another guy who’s hurt. His boss comes and takes pictures of everything, including a topless girl by the TV. The other girls are mad about that. I talk to one about what I’m reading (UK LeGuin) and whether I like having a comfy chair here instead of my stuff. I say it’s OK, and start rubbing her back and thinking about having her.
Drive to Orange High School and park, looking for a way in without getting seen. I walk up and Lynsey Vonn is there signing autographs. I find a piece of paper and she signs it. I walk in through to door by the pool, and they’re doing some sort of play rehearsal. I walk back out.
Walk up a chairlift slope-it’s deep, but has steps. I think about how hard it would be to ski because it goes down and up. Neet Linsey Vonn’s publicist at the top, mention how much he travels, and he says he’s leaving for Australia.
Parked by a park close to work, an ambulance pulls up and they roll someone out on a gurney. They’re giving him CPR, and he’s barfing. We watch them work, and then drive away.
At 30700, looking at a big fish tank in the family room. Someone in a white van drives into the garage. I don’t want to see him, so I run upstairs and get some laundry. Go back downstairs and he’s in the basement. I look at the tank again and my dog is in there. I go downstairs to get him to help me get her out. He’s looking at a smaller tank there. We come back up and she’s on top of it.
