REM report

Scene 1:
i was driving along some roads through empty fields. at an intersection i came to stop behind a strange vehicle. it looked like one of those homemade pickup canopies that resemble a shed, only there didn't seem to be a pickup attached to this one. it had green trim. though i couldn't see the driver, i knew it was the actor who played John Boy on The Waltons. he sat at the intersection for a long time, so i finally went around him, passing by him on the right, then turning back to the left to continue on. winding along a while longer i finally ended up at a dead end on a steep driveway.

can't remember the next thing that happened but i remember trying to leave on foot. i had a fishing pole and a fish with me, and i had to put them down to climb over a fence. the fish slithered away while i was climbing. i chased it for a while but it lost me in the leaves covering the ground.

Scene 2:
i was watching Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls running from an unseen pursuer. it seemed like i wasn't actively involved in the chase, that i had no personal stake in what happened, but i was trying to help her. she was riding some type of vehicle- like a flying motor scooter. at first she was cruising along outside in fields much the same as i was driving through earlier, but a few quick turns and she seemed to be flying through empty space. there was an opening surrounded by tiny green luminescent dots which she flew into, and after flying through some tunnels she emerged in what looked like a cartoon mall. she ducked in and out of rooms and seemed to be trying to collect some round cartoon tokens (possibly a form of money or credits for specific things, like you'd collect in a video game). maybe i made the connection in the dream, because suddenly she ducked into an arcade, and hovered over the pinball tables, one of which spewed tokens into the air, which bounced all over the room. she flitted around gathering them, by which i mean she flew her scooter into them and they disappeared like they would if you were playing a video game, and she got most of them but had to hurry on, to avoid being caught. i saw a token she missed and grabbed it.

i was following her, trying to get her attention to give her the token, and she didn't seem to notice me. i threw the token at her but missed. again i tried to get her attention, and though she seemed to notice me this time, she didn't stop. i threw the token way out in front of her so it would be in her path. it bounced off a wall far down the hallway, and rolled back on its edge, like a coin, directly to her, and she actually veered out of the way to avoid it.

that's all i remember.
