1) I'm working at a base in Morganfield, and I'm out in the woods doing a site survey with the Commander and a couple other guys. We walk by a cemetery and we start talking about doing a project to make the headstones look nicer. We also see an open grave and someone starts talking about how they used to bury people alive, and I think about how horrible that would be.

1) I'm living in the dorm and one night Jay Tennant comes in my room and asks if he can have a couple days off work to go to a graduation ceremony. I say it's cool, and then I ask if he has any plans for the evening. He says he and Thaddeus are going to perform some kind of rap thing at this really exclusive club. I ask if I can go, and he says it's okay, but I can't bring anyone else since the club is so small and snobby.

2) I'm at a University of Louisville basketball game and they're having try-outs for a dance team. I leave the ball game and go home where I start sorting through all the books on my shelf. The bookshelf falls over, so I start putting all the books back up, and as I do, the characters in the book come to life and start yelling at me.

1) I PCS to another base, and when I get there, they stick me in a structures (carpentry) shop, and also, my brother is working there, too. I'm clueless about how to do any kind of carpentry work so I'm just kinda walking around, watching what other people are doing, and trying to look busy. A bunch of officers come in to give out a bunch of awards, and they're just randomly walking around to see if anyone's name is on the list. I'm thinking that I have an award coming, but I don't want to appear too eager. I see them leaving, so I tell my brother I have an appointment and I start walking out with all the officers. They see my name on my shirt and pull out this big huge plaque with my name on it and present it to me.

1) I'm at a rollerskating rink with Jeni-Bomb and a bunch of other people from Misawa. We're skating around and we decide to try to do tricks like in the iPod commercial, but it's a lot harder than it looks and we just end up sliding around on our butts the whole time.

2) I'm at some kind of opera house or something, and I'm sitting in a seat and I'm thinking the performance is getting ready to start, but I kinda have to use the bathroom, but all I'm wearing is a pair of boxer shorts and a t-shirt and I don't want to walk through the lobby because everyone else is really dressed up. I have a backpack underneath my seat, so I'm going through it hoping there's a pair of pants or a sweatshirt or something. I keep asking the people around me when the show is going to start, but they keep changing the subject.

1) I'm at my old Church and we're singing the Lord's Prayer and we finish, but then I turn the page in the hymnal, and there's a second verse but the words are all modern and hip-hop-like (i.e. Big Daddy, all up in ya crib). I'm kinda liking it, but I look around and I see all the old ladies frowning.

2) I'm shopping with some girl I assume is a friend of mine, and she tells me she wants me to go back to her house with her because she's suspicious of her husband and she doesn't feel safe. So I go back with her, and her husband and her son are watching television. I sit down and watch TV with them, and she gets up and leaves, so I'm feeling really awkward because I've never met them before.

1) I'm at work, and there are a bunch of people asking for a bunch of paperwork I don't have, so I'm searching frantically all over my desk, but it's not turning up anywhere.

1) I'm driving along a highway, and I'm taking an exit to get onto another highway. I'm driving about 65 mph, and I look up and see a cop with his lights on. At first I think he's probably after someone else, but when I pull over, he pulls over, too. I get my license and military ID out and he comes up to the passenger side of the car and gives me a ticket. He's wearing some kind of hunting outfit, and the only way I know he's a cop is by his hat. I tell him there was no signs telling me the speed limit was any lower than 65 mph. Just then, a guy pulls up behind the cop car and gets out and starts yelling at the cop. They start arguing, and the cop tells me I'm going to have to follow him back to his house. We get back there, and the guy who pulled up turns out to be the cop's son. The son's girlfriend is there, too, and all three of them are arguing, and I'm just sitting there feeling really awkward.

1) I'm walking around this huge mall, and I decide to go into an electronics store to see if they have the camera I bought any cheaper. While I'm in there, I see this guy who has two very young sons in wheelchairs. They both have to go to the bathroom, so I try to open the men's room door for them, but it's locked. I go up to the clerk and ask why the door is locked and he just kinda smiles and apologises. I start walking around the mall again and decide to get a smoothie, but I can't find the smoothie place.

1) I'm visiting the Church I grew up in, and instead of the traditional organ/piano/choir music set-up, they have a five-person band playing P&W. They're totally rocking out, and I'm kind of stunned to see all the little old ladies singing along. Then they stop and start leading everyone in a chorus of "How Majestic Is Your Name" and one of the girls in the band starts playing the bassoon.

2) I'm pretty sure I had some kind of dream telling me to shave my head, but I don't really remember the details.

1) It's my first day in the desert and I'm moving all my stuff into my tent. All the tents are co-ed, but nobody really cares. I need to go by the BX, but I don't know where it is, so I grab my flak vest and helmet and start wandering around trying to find it. Some guy tells me he'll take me there, but we get separated and I end up getting on the back of a truck with a bunch of people. I'm sitting next to a girl, so I start talking to her. I ask her where she's from, and she says northern Alabama, so I ask if she knows Brad and Kristy. She starts smiling and we find out we were both at the wedding in March.

1) I'm working for some kind of special forces and my mission is to go behind enemy lines and blow up a bunch of their equipment. But I can't just shoot at it, so I have to get in to their tanks and planes and helicopters and plant dynamite inside. So I'm running around throwing all this dynamite into all this equipment, and sometimes I see the enemy soldiers inside the cockpits and they're all dressed like stormtroopers. After a while, they start chasing after me, and I'm running up to one helicopter with nobody inside, so I decide to hide out in there. I get inside, but the stormtrooper guys are right behind me and I don't have a lot of time, so I do my best to hide. I get real still and I can hear them right outside and I'm really paranoid that they can see me.

1) I'm in college, and I'm taking time between classes to go run at the gym, but when I get there, I just walk aroun the gym looking for something to do, but don't actually work out. I go to a diner afterward to get something to eat, and while I'm sitting at the table, all these kids come in with Kiss makeup on. So I leave and go back to class, and I'm sitting in front of this really cool guy so I turn around to talk to him, but he's talking to the guy behind him. I turn back around, and I see Lana sitting the next row over.

1) I'm in Japan and I'm bowling with a bunch of people. We finish, and we're walking out to my truck. I'm waiting in line to pull out of the parking lot, and a big, huge truck pulls up next to me and scrapes the side of my truck. All these sparks are flying, and I'm getting really angry. So I get out, and the guys in the other truck get out and say how sorry they are. I'm starting to think that these guys will never pay me for the damage they've done to my truck.
