1) It's Halloween, and I'm visiting some friends who are staying at a really big house in New Orleans, I think. The house is old and kinda creepy, but very cool. We go out walking around the town, and there are lots of other people walking around, too. Some little girl runs up to me and asks me to change her diaper, but I don't know how to, so I'm asking my friends how to do it. Somehow, it gets done and the little girl runs off. I walk down by a bunch of old cars, and some crazy guys come up and start setting them on fire. I don't know whose cars they are, so I walk away. I end up back at the house and all the furniture is flying around and there's a big, blue snake everyone's afraid of. The girl that owns the house comes in and tries to get the snake to calm down, and it bites her, but she doesn't seem to care.

1) I get a new jeep and I drive it onto base to the gym, which is now combined with the library. These two girls have just gotten out of the shower. They have their clothes on, but they're both still dripping wet and walking around the library getting water on all the books. When I leave, I notice the driver's-side door is almost off the hinges, and there's a bullet hole in the side near the gas tank. Some guy is with me, and he tells me I shouldn't be taking my dog everywhere because that makes people mad.

1) I'm in a hotel room with a really hot girl (my wife?), and we're looking out the window watching the sunset behind the mountains. The clouds make the mountain look like a volcano. We look over at the next mountain and it really is a volcano erupting, and two big planes come out of it. I tell the girl they're Transformers, but she doesn't believe me. We walk into the parking lot, and Optimus Prime rolls by and transforms and runs away. We start to panic and pack all our bags. I'm trying to pack really practical things, but she's worried about returning DVDs we rented on time. We run out of the hotel and go into a big office building which turns out to be a hologram and the walls are made of ammonia. We get separated and I follow this big, muscle guy to the gym. We run on a treadmill for a while, then go to his apartment, which we have to climb a ladder to get to and doesn't have a roof. There's another really hot girl there sunbathing, and we sit up there for a while. Tons of people are camped out all over waiting to see when the Transformers are going to attack, and every time we feel an earthquake, people start screaming and running. We climb down from his apartment, and I'm trying to find a good spot to hide out, deciding that I need to get out of the city. I run short sprints, tuck and roll, and take cover behind small hills. I'm slowly making my way out, but I don't think I'm gonna make it out of the city before they attack.

1) I'm on a big road trip across the country. I stop and get gas somewhere in the south, and the lady working the register is really nice and has a thick accent. I pull out my wallet and can't find my credit card. I assume I left it at the last place I got gas, which was 300 miles earlier. As I'm standing at the counter wondering what to do, David Wilhelm walks up next to me. I start laughing and give him a big hug, but he acts like it's no big deal and shrugs. I somehow get to where I'm going and I'm looking at a bunch of really big, old houses with Jim Greenleaf and another guy. We're thinking about buying one and fixing it up. This real estate guy comes up and tells us what we can and can't do because it's a historic district. Then he tells us McDonalds already owns a parcel of land right next to one of the houses, and they're gonna put a big restaurant there.

1) I get a second job at Macaroni Grill. It's my first day there, and I'm really nervous. Floyd is working there, too, and I'm hoping he'll show me the ropes. I'm walking around barefoot, and the manager tells me I have to wear shoes. I don't have any socks, so I put plastic bags on my feet before putting my shoes on. We're having a little waiter's meeting before the restaurant opens, and then everyone goes outside. I get there, and they're all in a garden picking strawberries. I start crawling through the garden looking for strawberries, and I'm thinking I should have brought other clothes so these don't get dirty. I get to the end of the garden, and there's a big mall with a Banana Republic inside. I walk in the door and think about quitting the Macaroni Grill because I'd rather work (and shop) at Banana Republic all day. And I might not even have to wear shoes.

2) I'm at the house in Morganfield, and Big Kyle and Lil Ryan are visiting with me. My family is running around all crazy and trying to get ready for Church, but the three of us are just sitting around watching television. I go back to my room (which looks like my room in my apartment), and Ryan follows me back asking if I have any Crown Royal. I have some, but I haven't opened the bottle yet. I tell him I'll look to see if my parents have any in their liquor cabinet. I go into the kitchen, and John Mumme is there carving a big turkey. I'm trying to get around him so I can check the liquor cabinet and I don't want to disturb him and make him cut himself. I sneak around him, and check the liquor cabinet, but there's no Crown Royal. I tell Ryan he's out of luck. I go back to my room and get ready to take a shower. I'm standing there in my underwear, and Kyle comes in. I put my t-shirt back on, and he keeps asking me where my alcohol is.

1) I'm living back at the house in Morganfield, and MItt Romney is coming over to stay with us for a while. My parents are very excited, and they try to get me to build a big lamp to celebrate. I'm putting together this big glass lamp, and it has one big light on top with several smaller lights inside. People keep asking me how it's coming along, and all it does is frustrate me. Mitt arrives, and the lamp still isn't done. The Gamblins come over and my Mom has just gotten out of the shower and she's cooking dinner, too. Dad is angry with me because the lamp isn't finished. I finally get to where I think I'm done, and I plug the lamp in, but it keeps flickering on and off. I'm so angry and MItt is standing right behind me.

2) I'm in a big city with Nick Fuoss, and we decide to go to a free community breakfast. We're going through the line talking, and all he gets on his plate is a bunch of sausage and bacon. I ask for french toast. As we're walking around trying to find a seat, I see Jim Sullivan and I start talking with him. I don't see Nicole anywhere, and I'm just about to ask Jim where she is, and he turns around and sits down with some people I don't know. Nick sits at a table that's already full, so I go and sit at a table with only one other girl. She's dressed completely in black and her hair is all messy. I ask if it's okay if I sit there, and she's very nice. Another girl comes and sits next to me. We have a nice conversation about society and the different types of people that come to free meals like this one.

1) I'm dating a girl who lives above a garage behind an old lady's house. It's not a great building, but the apartment is nice. One day, we're making dinner and a couple guys in pickup trucks start driving through the trailer park next door. They start ramming into trailers and trying to kill people. They end up killing a little baby. They stop their trucks and start walking around. I walk down and grab a big piece of wood. I yell at them to go away and start hitting them with the log. I hit their trucks and break out one of the windshields. They drive away, and I go over to see how the lady with the baby is.

2) I'm in the middle of a military exercise. We're all in our gear in the middle of the play area, and a big storm comes in. The rain is coming down and the wind is really strong. It picks me up and throws me into the side of a building. I get up and everyone is running around. I take my gear off, and run for shelter. The storm stops and the Chief tells us to go home. My gear is laying in the mud, but they tell us to leave it there because there are mudslides. I jump into a truck with Abe Garcia, and he has to drive through this really narrow passageway. He gets to the end and there are a bunch of chlorine cylinders there and he can't get around them. MSgt Frey is there, and Abe starts yelling at Frey to get the chlorine out of the way. I get out of the truck and tell Frey that the chlorine isn't authorized to be in this building and the whole system isn't set up right anyway. Frey gets really flustered and he keeps waving his arms around and stuttering.
