i have a recurring dream i always forget about until i have it again. actually, as far as i know, it is a two or three part dream, and i have had it at least twice before.
last night i had the first dream again. in it, I work as a cashier in some upscale gift shop in a multi-story skyscraper-type building downtown. i fall asleep during my lunch break and awake in the same building, except that everything is overgrown with flora and there are no longer any signs of shops or businesses at all. i am locked in. there is some kind of army trying to take hold of this building, for whatever reason, and they are led by a sinister female ExxJ type with a maniacal cackle. I get the sense that perhaps this is another dimension or timeline in the dream, since i notice that clocks appear backwards for some reason, and with the building being the same structurally on the outside but without the same inside, it seems possible. anyway, i overhear the (assumed) leader lady and her minions and hide. i stumble on another lost person and he asks me what the hell is going on, etc... we try to escape but suddenly as we are entering a corridor he disappears and i wake up. I spend the rest of the dream in a 'waking' state filled with deja vu experiences that remind me of the strange dream, and i meet the guy i met in the dream in real life - we meet at a corner coffee shop, but he tells me he works in an office a few floors above my shop in the same building. i tell him i'd like to chat with him some other time, and he agrees. i don't tell him my suspicions that there is something messed up going on. but it turns out that he had the dream too, only he didnt remember my face clearly enough to place it... and that's all i remember of that.
the other dreams continue the story, but i don't know how it ends. all i know is i have a cheesy sci-fi miniseries in my subconscious.
