Last nights dream

I was with a couple friends Ben and someone else maybe George and we went to this "children's learning center" a "Gymboree" type thing just before closing, it was empty except for a couple employees (a twenty something average white gay guy that maybe Ben was friends with and a straight dark skinned chubby female). I obviously did not want to be there but for whatever reason they want to go there to play these sort of old tyme but just crappy arcade games, sort of claw machine style but very stark and white - not fun or colorful, they almost look like 50s lab testing equipment but honestly not that interesting. Writing this I now realize that they remind me of things that were left in my dads garage on his farm. Klunky crap from the 50s that no longer has purpose that they never got rid of (this of course means something as its so particular but Im not sure what) They want to play them to win these larger sized gumballs. We had all these gumballs and I was like "Why do we need more of these? We can't possibly eat them all and they're not even tasty and they're all white?" We were there till almost sun up and we head outside (it looks like the property at the back of my elementary school) and we realize that our cars have been towed. Somehow Ben and George are now gone like their car wasn't towed and I'm stuck waiting with this girl. A parking attendant guy (tall white guy with dark hair combed back kind of longer if it wasnt slicked back, darker features but white and straight, good looking-ish longer features, sorta vampirey very east coast, in a dark grey peacoat) comes back with a BMW with no tires, its almost just a frame of a car, it had no hood and it's running on just it's rims, and I'm like "This is not my car?!" I now am beginning to wonder if my car had been stolen and wondering why I assumed it was towed. So oddly this person I knew who was addicted to inhalants in reality comes out of nowhere and is like "I'm renting a car and getting out of here." I'm left waiting for my car and the place is totally dark and abandoned. The girl I was with is now gone and there is someone or thing making monster/witch noises in the dark next to me (this may be Alvaro sleeping next to me in reality talking in his sleep or doing this weird clicking throat sound he makes which bugs the shit out of me because it wakes me up) so anyhow I'm actually really scared because I've got to do something about this monster so I start making monster sounds back to scare it off. I can't remember much else but the girl was dead or eaten or something. I woke up with a tightly clenched jaw and was angry and aggressive and aggravated.

Not to be Captain Obvious or anything but the first part of this dream sounds a lot like a metaphor for your take on Circuit Parties in general and The White Party in particular. Interesting dream, though and I admire the level of detail with which you remember it. I never seem to be able to remember anything but the vaguest images from my dreams...

Fascinating. FWIW, I can't even sleep if someone else is in the room. Even a dog or a cat. I'll doze into something so light, it's not even really slumber, and I won't dream. Can't.
