Eat dinner and make notes

 <<First     Latest>>   

Eat dinner and make notes
You make dinner, taking Maria's advice by putting real food and seasoning in your cheap noodles instead of using the flavor packet it comes with. You also get a cup of real water instead of soda.

Returning to your desk, you eat and begin work on a journal separate from your dream journal. Like a... uh... awake journal. You write down your thoughts from earlier and some of the things you remembered from when you were a kid. You also start making notes on the things and people you've encountered in town so far.

You still have a lot of questions--about why a corporately owned and operated AI is so open and forward, what the hell all is going on with Maria's operation, and... pretty much everything about MondolGroup. You still need to visit the Back Room, too, and there's that concert tomorrow night. For now, though...

it's about 10:15 pm, and you're getting tired.

You eye the bed. You had a pretty good day; if last night was just your brain going to a dark place then you shouldn't have much to worry about tonight.

You're not really convinced that it was just a stress dream, though.

You still remember everything. Perfectly.

Welp, this is about as good as our mood can get, I suppose. Suppose it's time to change into our pajamas, brush our teeth, get into bed and face the music, I suppose.
(Also, glad the food worked out. Be proud of being more healthconscious, and putting in an effort!)

Put a potato in our pocket before going to bed to test what we can take. Do we usually remember everything perfectly, or is this dream somehow realer than real?

+1. last night, the stuff we put into the box next to the bed were brought with us, maybe we should put a potato in there too?

Also tape something small to our idea, like a soda can tab in case it's easier to get things through if they're in our inventory.

I recomend taping a little note around one arm of our glasses as a quick and easy test of everything that can and can't come with us. We already did not wear glasses to bed the first night, so we see if changing their condition IRL changes them in the dream. Then, we also so if we can transmit information by writing the door code, 91-60-14-44-79, on that note. The whole set up is light weight, distinctive, and contains valuable information.

Maybe a weapon this time. Just throwing that out there? Are we that paranoid about this dream?
7th Dec 2019, 2:23 AM
I think a real weapon would be a bad idea until we figure out what the rules are. It opens us up to getting killed IRL by something that disorients us in our dreams. Also sleeping with weapons doesn't sound like a great idea in general unless we know what we're doing.

What are the odds the potato will turn into a hand grenade over in... wherever it is Plaire went last night ?

That's fine, even if it blows up in our dream face it will be pretty hard to hurt ourselves with a potato IRL. I'm more worried about things that are actually dangerous being used against us while we are delerious.

Watch a few cute cat videos online before sleeping, just to be sure our brains in a happy place
6th Dec 2019, 7:15 PM
Yeah, or whatever other happy stuff we enjoy watching.

Why just a potato?
Experiment:

Grab a backpack, messenger bag, or purse and load it up!
notebook
Pens
Pencils
Chalk if we have (antacid tablets as a substitute?)
String or cord
Housewife (thread, scissors, sewing needles, etc in a small box)
Pocket knife
Larger knife if it can be carried safely?
Matches and lighters (at least 2 lighters if we can)
Duct tape
Rope or Extra long network cable

Take the bag to bed.

Apply a band aid to an uninjured portion of our body, like the right upper arm.

Write in marker on the left upper arm.

A little note see
Can I read this in my dream
My experiment

The potato, the bag, the night table items, the poem, and bandaid are different trials of the same experiment. Heck grab a fry pan and add it to the night table while at this.

oooh, excellent idea! +1

Unfortunately, it's not as though you can just not sleep. I say put your nighttime routine, its existence being in question, into action. And try not to stay up too late on your phone- I know that can be hard.

Prepare to speedrun your dreams.

you know I have to wonder. will this comic have any connection to that old combat 11 disk we had in BIM?
