The Dream Cycle, 2007.15

Interrogation by the Nazis

I was a member of a British squad in World War 2 located somewhere on the Western Front. My squad was pulling out of a town since a large column of German troops were heading towards the town. For some reason, I staid behind.

Eventually, a squad of German soldiers found me in the cellar of one of the buildings and their Captain came down to interrogate me. The Captain was a woman in her late 20's (did the Nazis even let women in the army?). She had a nasty scar on the left side of her face, and had a hairstyle (blond) that was prevalent at that time. Come to think of it, she kinda of looked similar to the main woman from 'Indian Jones and the Last Crusade'. Obviously, she was wearing a black German Officer's uniform. Very SS looking.

She began to interrogate me in German, though I heard it in GermEnglish.
"Ve vould like to know about troop movementz along ze Rhine!"
I would answer something like I am not priveledged to know that information, ma'am.
"Ve have vays of making you talk!" (Ah, the classic, cheesy line!)
'But ma'am, I am talking now! I can't answer about things that I don't know about!"
She kept asking me about troop movements, armor columns, and so on. Luckily, it never got violent, torture is not a pretty thing.

And that's it.


The Dream Cycle, 2007.14

Been having trouble remembering my dreams for the last couple of days.

Though I do remember last night's a little. I had a house, and in this house I had a cat. (Which is beyond weird since I'm allergic to cats.) This cat was none-other than Garfield! He looked similar to the 'live-action' movie version. we were arguing about something, but I have no idea what.

I used to collect Garfield comic books when I was a kid. I had a bunch of them too. It was one of my favorites back in the day. Maybe that's where the dream spawned from, since I've never seen the movies (only previews for it).

Fields of Travel

My car broke down in some rural area a ways north of Baltimore. I kind of new the area, so I began walking across a large cornfield and came to another road. So I started walking along this road for a good ways, and then crossed into another field. I don't know what kind of plants were being grown but it was like trying to walk through three feet of snow. The plants were clumped so thick that every step was strenuous.

Eventually I got through this field and came to an intersection. This intersection was of Weber Road and some other road, and had an inn called the Baltimore Inn on one corner. I remember the inn was a light blue with white window shutters and a gray roof.

Some guy was kind of wandering around outside the inn and I asked him if Weber Road led to another road that I was looking for. He said yeah and said he was walking in that direction. So we started hoofing and he got on his cellphone and made a quiet call while slightly looking back at me with shifty eyes. I started getting a bad feeling about this guy...

And my alarm went off and I woke up.
