I was in a family in like an old West film. John Wayne was the father. There was maybe a 9 year old boy and maybe a 15 year old boy. I was another brother or maybe this 15 year old.
So we're out in the wilderness running away from a guy who believes that I'm...can't remember the name but let's say Ned Pepper because later I'm reminded of the Ned Pepper scene from John Wayne's Oscar winning performance in True Grit.
So there's some adventuring and peril. This villainous character appears a few times telling John Wayne to give up Ned Pepper to which Wayne refuses.
I think that I'm Ned Pepper so I say to the Duke that I should just give myself in. Then there's the big twist ending. John says that I'm not Ned Pepper because Ned Pepper doesn't exist.
Next act, we're all captured and the role if this villain is being played by John Goodman (in the Western part it was played by a much slimmer man). Also, it's now set in a cyber pirate scene.
After I refuse to admit to being Ned Pepper we're all sent out of the interrogation room into a "dynamite room". There are slot machines and food and everything is opulent but if you use anything you risk setting off dynamite. There's a Chinese man smoking "dynamite" that gives off blue smoke and John tells us to stay away from him and just don't touch anything.
The nine year old accidentally activates a slot machine and the whole area gasps. There's loads of people in there trying not to touch anything. Fortunately, no explosion.
After that we're invited back to talk to John Goodman. I don't really remember the conversation. It wasn't positive.
Third act, turns out that Ned Pepper does exist and he's a big fat black man in a modern house-prison. One of my big fat teachers from high school is the guard.
By the way, there was also an extended driving sequence at some point in all of this. I was driving an impossibly small go kart of some description through ruined buildings with some girl from high school.
Anyway, I'm in this house prison with some black prisoners. They're trying to intimidate me. Then Ned Pepper comes in. He's being a jerk and then starts biting me. He's not really biting me but he's attempting to and I'm behaving like he really is. The guard just watches as I plead with him to do something.
So I have enough of this, get the guy in a headlock and start making racial slurs. The other inmates hear this and ask me what I said. I say, "You heard me ######" and continue to egg them on. All the while this lazy Southern guard just laughs and does nothing.
So I bust out of the house (it was my childhood house) and get in a car. It's night. Start the car and I see one of the prisoners running at me. So I quickly lock the door and speed off. He's holding on to the car. I try to shake him off a few times without success. Then I woke up.
So yeah, not a bad dream. Had something for everyone. Western sequence, cyber pirate sequence, driving sequence, prison sequence. We find out who Ned Pepper is. I'm sort of vindicated. I escape. All star cast.
What else...only three days before hopeful internet. That will be good. I have a lot of backlogged YouTube videos to watch.
Job hasn't started yet. He just asked me for pictures for a court pass. Don't think I'm working next week though. Still have no information about anything.
Could I be the first American working in the Scottish courts? I guess it's possible. First citizen of Finland, surely. So yeah, pioneering stuff.
Nothing to do today. Can just relax in this total dump. Have food, took the garbage out yesterday. Can just stay on my crappy futon all day.
Been getting a lot of sleep done. I'll have to order a munchie box one day.
