I dreamed there were three women bathrooms and I couldn’t find the men’s room, so I went into the women’s room and asked a woman if I could use it “She smiled and said, I don’t mind. So I sat down out in the open because there were no stalls but then another woman came by and objected, made a disgusted face at me and I explained to her about the lack of men’s rooms in the mall and then I woke up, remembering that they make almost everything for women in the malls because they buy most of the stuff, even if some of guys give them the money sometimes. Shouldn’t we have more all gender restrooms everywhere?
I dreamed that my Mom was holding a Hindu party for me, with gifts, but she’s not really Hindu, she’s Jewish. Someone I know is Hindu though, and Jewish. She calls herself a Hinjew, many times.
I dreamed that my Mom was holding a Hindu party for me, with gifts, but she’s not really Hindu, she’s Jewish. Someone I know is Hindu though, and Jewish. She calls herself a Hinjew, many times. This dream probably happened because I was looking at some Hindu art in an email. I’ve seen on Vice News that Hindus persecute Muslims in India and Muslims fight Jews. It’s all one big stew!

I started out feeling ready to go, driving along in my car. Then all of a sudden, the GPS signal is lost, and I don’t know where to go anymore. Was the meeting in San Diego or LA? I can’t tell anymore, so feeling desperate and anxious, I stop at this nice brown old house, to sort out all of my papers and files I have, so I can figure it out. After a while, I found out I was in Finland, and I was sharing the house with some Finnish people who kinda made fun of me, while I took as much time as I wanted with a multi-headed hand dryer blowing on my hands in the bathroom. Then I woke up to pee.
Dreamed that I went on a vacation with a beautiful slim blonde, like the one on SNL, and I lost all my cards in my wallet when I tried to check into a hotel with her. And the actor, Paul Rudd was there. He had a robot toy, but the girl wasn’t impressed so she let me hold her and touch her legs, even though I messed up by losing my cards from my wallet. She didn’t like the robots and liked me better. She thought the robot and Paul were creepy. I thought the robot was cool but I wanted her so I focused on her instead.
Dreamed that there were two robots chasing me, ready to fire their lasers at me, but somehow, I magically got them to fight each other instead.
Last night, I dreamed that I invested in the University of California for my Mom and the stock went way up! The prices were really low when I bought them, they went up about 4 or 5 thousand per share. I went to a lawyer for advice about it and the lawyer thought it was great but wouldn’t tell me if I should sell now or not. I was anxious about it but excited. Above are some of the stocks with low prices are some of the stocks UC invests in. I think I will too. No guarantees but they might work for you as well. I already have Sunrun or RUN and it does pretty well. It makes sense if you can to invest in UC stock picks. These are usually politically correct companies for this day and age and the employees that hold these investments are not poor people. So, what do you think?

Dreamed I was with my Dad, who passed on and we needed to charge my electric car, so we were downtown where I knew there were some chargers. But someone ripped them out and they weren’t there anymore. Tonight I went to charge the car in real life and all the chargers were taken. So I had to go to a charger that was a little more expensive, around $15. But at least I found one nearby.
Dreamed last night that my mother woke me up and said that if I didn’t get up I’d be late for film school. So I got up and was at a family party instead. At the party, I had an uncle there who made fun of my hair. He was my great uncle on Mom’s side and had a name like one of the Pep Boys, either Manny, Moe, or Jack. I didn’t like the way he made fun of my haircut and somebody said he was the most deceptive man ever!(Trump?)And that I shouldn’t listen to him. (In real life, the Pep Boys Are Cool and fixed my car pretty good. This is just a crazy dream!
Dreamed that I decided to give my electric car a full fast charge. So I went to an EVgo station because I’m rich enough now, so $15 isn’t that bad anymore for a charge. Then found myself near a Japanese restaurant, possibly at Mount Fuji in Japan. I sat down at a table and someone started singing this old Harry Kari song, from Dr. Demento, “Twas in Yokohama, I met this hot momma, she was serving me breakfast of radishes, octopus, fried rice and dried squid.”
Then I saw a geisha girl and the dream ended. My car is Japanese, it’s a Nissan Leaf after all.
After waking up to pee, then I had another dream that I met this girl and she was a little thick but cute. After talking a little, we kissed. Her small lips felt great on mine and I felt her tits and ass too. She liked that. Then we decided to go to my car to fool around more since I had a condom and she agreed. There were too many of my current girlfriends’ Carol’s things in the backseat so we decided to go back to my place and Carol didn’t even notice us, even though she was there. I felt bad cause I kissed that gal and thought we should have been wearing masks or we could get Covid, even though there’s a vaccine. I started to get it up for her and the dream ended.
I guess they were toys I had when I was a kid. Then the scene changed where I was an adult dating this beautiful nude red haired woman who wanted to go to this fancy burger place, like burger cake or something, but I don’t like burgers. I liked her so I went anyway. Then she wanted to stand up in the cold street for a long time with her girlfriend. I still like her but I got tired of standing up so I left.

So the chipmunk was in a gear box that I found in a bush and seemed to enjoy being there. Then I took it out of the bush and put it in my car. And my Dad was there with me who passed on. And felt sorry for the chipmunk. I did too but I wanted to make a video of it and take pictures of it. So I held up my phone to it but it didn’t seem like the phone was working cause the battery died and Dad didn’t want me to take the pictures but I tried anyway. Then I noticed that some cop cars were near us so we thought maybe we should give it to the cops even though it might be more fun to hold onto it and take care of it better ourselves but there was a fire truck next to the police cars so we thought we should give it to the firemen instead cause they take better care of animals so we were happy with that and we did. Then, I woke up. Wanna get a better sleep? https://www.dreamcloudsleep.com/mattress
I dreamed I was in the elevator here to my apartment and met two women there. One had kids and the other didn’t. The one with kids had her apartment number showing. I think it was 407. I decided to go up to the 4th floor there to find them. The first one I couldn’t remember what the number was and the 2nd one, 407 wasn’t where it should have been. There was a farmer’s market there instead so I gave up.
Then the next dream was that I met a filmmaker who wanted me to help him make a film for 12 or 13 thousand dollars. He showed me the budget and I thought it was too cheap. Plus he wanted me to travel to Orange county and couldn’t pay me yet. So I said no.
Then the dream changed to where I meet my Mom and Dad, (but Dad passed away a few years ago ) at the county fair. I feel so surprised to see my Mom, who gives me a big hug. cause now she lives in Israel. She said she couldn’t get a flight anywhere else and we both agree that it’s beautiful here. Then I see Dad and I say to him, I must be dreaming if you’re here. I realize I am and I wake up.
Dreamed that we had a Tesla and didn’t know where to charge it near Mission Bay so I drove back home and met Elon Musk. He was mad at me because I borrowed the neighbor’s Tesla and he said I owed the neighbor money for the rental of the Tesla so I should pay him but Elon was in a hurry and had to get to the airport. I initially wanted to ask him where the charging stations were but instead he frowned and told me to pay the neighbor. I sort of agreed that I would and the dream ended.

Why Isn’t This All Over The News?
One man’s secret to a socially distant Halloween: A robot who’ll deliver candy to trick-or-treaters
Megan JohnsonSun, September 27, 2020, 2:11 PM PDT·4 mins read
Luke Keyes has always loved Halloween. Every year, the software engineer and his wife create a haunted science lab in their garage for the kids in their North Austin neighborhood to explore. But, wanting to encourage social distancing this year, Keyes decided to scrap those plans and focus on a back-up: a candy-delivering robot.
“COVID is very real to us. We actually know of one person that passed away during the beginning, and the person that she lived with — he has permanent heart damage from it,” Keyes told Yahoo Life. “It’s very real to us.”
Keyes also has a lung condition of his own, and didn’t want to do anything that would encourage unsafe behavior.
“I’m comprised. I know it’s very real and I don’t want to get it, and condone or encourage others to spread it. But I feel bad because [the science lab] has finally grown to where the neighborhood kids will see me and ask about it,” says Keyes. “So I was like, OK, what can we do?”
A longtime robotics enthusiast, Keyes began building his robot, Arty, eight years ago out of Lego bricks and a Roomba. (Arty’s name is derived from the acronym for “Robot Test.”)
“I’m an ‘80s kid. In the ‘80s, robots were everywhere. They were in every movie,” said Keyes. “So when I was growing up, I just saw robots. Any time my parents would buy me a toy with a motor in it, they’d get so upset because I would take it apart and be like, I’m building a robot!”
There have been several changes to Arty over the years, but the robot now measures nearly 6 feet tall. He’s constructed out of a Balder power wheelchair that someone left in a boat shed, several cameras and a lot of wood. Keyes controls the robot, which he estimates weighs over 300 pounds, with an Xbox controller.
About a month ago, Keyes realized he could put Arty to use this Halloween season in an effort to promote safe trick-or-treating.
The www.https://www.portofsandiego.org/projects/portside-pier just after it opened.
My newest Staycation place
I had been following the progress of this pier almost every week for over a year now. A few major restaurants like http://ketchgrillandtaps.com/ http://www.brigantine.com/and https://www.miguels-cocina.com/ were supposed to open locations here on the pier. I read a sign that said it was supposed to open in March 2020. Then came the coronavirus. And a lot of delays. I kept checking back, taking a weekly pleasant walk around the San Diego Embarcadero on Mission Bay, hoping it would open. I remembered the old Anthony’s Restaurant and regretted what this historical landmark and beautiful view would become until I saw that they were building a dome here.
Since I met Buckminster Fuller when I was in college, more decades ago than I care to say, and as an experiment, I even lived in a plastic dome in the Santa Cruz mountains that are on fire now, to the chagrin of my late father who spent the night with me there, I was thrilled! The plan was for a few domes that became upscale restaurants, right near the ancient Star of India.
It finally opened, even during Covid 19, so we decided to drive down there. As you can see, it looks fantastically futuristic! They now call it Portside Pier. At the time, we got an easy waterfront parking space and there was no line to get in to Ketch so we walked right in. and I ordered the delicious Coctel DeMar, an incredible ceviche, with crab,shrimp, avocado,salsa, cilantro, etc. as seen on the left in the picture below. It’s supposed to be an appetizer but it was large enough to be a main course. The beer was good too.
Me in the Ketch Dome
I went back to the Portside Pier a few weeks later on a Saturday night. The word has gotten out about the place now so it was a little harder to park but I still found a free spot right in front of the Star of India. We got up to the restaurants and asked for a table at Miguel’s. The pretty hostess said it would be a 2 hour wait. We went back to Ketch and they said the same thing so we wandered around outside the building and inside where we saw some amazing sign art and a restroom, something that was needed on the Pier. My date was clever. She wandered upstairs to the top of Ketch, sat down at a table they said was reserved, and first asked for just a glass of water. Then when we were sitting down, she got a waiter to give us menus. I was ambivalent about the fairness of this because some people were waiting in line for a few hours, and I mentioned it to her, but I finally gave in and ordered. The menu upstairs where we were sitting was very different than what you can order downstairs in the dome. Downstairs they have great seafood. Upstairs you can only get bar food like sandwiches or just fried foods. Downstairs closed at 9pm so we had to eat upstairs. I had the blue fin tuna sandwich. I would say it’s very salty and just Okay. We each had a drink and the total for bar food and drinks was around $50.00. Certainly not a bargain, but incredible scenery! Besides, what do you expect from San Diego’s newest Saturday night hotspot?

A sign of the times: A mask on the Star of India.
Even though Coronavirus is still raging without a vaccine available, it’s legal again so I have to escape once in awhile around my San Diego neighborhood. Here’s a huge snake at Pet Kingdom, a nearby pet store with a stardust Android photo filter that makes it look like the snake is in a disco.
Here’s some floating hammocks near Paradise Point.
Here’s an upstairs view of boats from Point Loma Seafoods.
I kept getting calls from Israel from my Mom that my Dad who is 86 got pnemonia fell down, hitting his head. My lady friend Carol told me that he should be wearing a medical helmet just in case he falls down again. He was doing so well when my orthodox brother-in law, whose father recently died was there. But when he returned home to New Jersey, my Dad was back in Hadassah hospital and he died in the middle of the night right after we came home from seeing the movie Medea’s Family Funeral which wasn’t that funny or good.
I didn’t really want to see it but my lady friend did. I felt it might be bad luck and it really was.
My dad was a pioneer. In the air force, he was a ham radio operator who worked with Morris code. When I was young, he had his own mobile TV repair business. When I took classes in cyber security, I invited him and he absorbed the lecture like a sponge and formed his own Cyber Security company that charged a monthly fee. He always had great ideas but they just didn’t make it to market the right way.
I don’t want to be that way, but I guess I’m like that too.
I was going to go to back Israel to spend Purim with my family anyway since I got a Discover credit card, but now I would unfortunately have to attend my father’s funeral, or so I thought. Actually neither my sister or I were allowed to because the rabbi wanted him buried traditionally within 24 hours and my mother agreed to this. So we were told to come and sit shiva, which is a ritualized mourning party where friends and family visit and bring food over to share memories. Not being able to even attend the funeral added to the upset feelings I felt.
I scheduled a flight on British Airways which seemed like a very safe airline at the time. Then I heard the news while I was packing that a package exploded at the Airport in England where I was transferring to Tel Aviv. Great. Now I might die too. I was scared as hell to get on that flight. I had enough room on the flight to fall asleep but a couple stole the extra seats. When we went over Colorado, there must have been a storm brewing because the turbulence was so jarring, it knocked over my free beer. This is not the first time I almost crash landed in Colorado. Maybe that’s why it’s called the Rockies.
Anyway I survived and had to deal with all the ques in Britain. After a free bus that took me to the wrong place and I had to walk in the rain, here’s the hotel I stayed in near the airport.
I had to line up or as they say “cue” up just to get the room I already reserved.
After only being there 1 night, it seemed to me that I had to cue up for everything. I cued up when I got off the plane to get the bus to the airport. I cued up to go through security. I cued up to get the free bus to the hotel. Cue up to get my room and even cue up for dinner. The only thing I didn’t have to cue for was the bathroom or what they call the lough. Thank G-d.
Dinner was pretty good. A seafood pasta. But I didn’t know anybody there so I knew I had to move on the next day. The weird thing about the rooms was that there were two beds and one was super hard and the other was super soft. I chose the soft one and there were red strings hanging from the ceiling near the bed and in the bathroom. I asked about these and a hotel staff member said they were for disabled people.
I tried to calculate what time I should get up to sleep as much as could, even with my jet lag. But somehow I woke up late and got it wrong. I showered, packed and took the elevator down. I asked for a taxi and then I realized I forgot my suit! I panicked until I saw a room attendant that I asked to help me. He ran up to the room and promptly delivered it to me. I felt blessed, gave him a nice tip and the cab driver was still patiently waiting for me. I felt like I still had time to catch my flight but the cab driver thought it would be a close call. Thank G-d he knew where my airport gate was. As a matter of fact, he was an expert. He charged a little more but he got me to the airport and there seemed to be enough time so it was worth it. Besides, since the price of a British pound was currently $1.40, Britain was too expensive for me no matter how much I wanted to visit the places where British invasion rock stars had lived. I went through security , even though they tried to stop me because I only was a half hour early.
I prayed while they checked if I could still get on the flight. It would be very embarrassing for my family if I couldn’t sit shiva on time. They told me I’d have to run but I could still make it if I go through security and get on the train to the gate to catch my flight. I went through security as fast as possible and ran like hell to catch the train even though I didn’t reall know where it was. I had to ask people while I was running. But I found the train and then I was running to the elevator to the gate.
I met a disabled person in a wheelchair who was going my way and said we had plenty of time. I didn’t take it for granted after I got off the elevator though that calmed me down and then I felt like I could make it on time. I got in my seat on the plane and felt relieved.
I was very hungry but willing to wait till the staff served breakfast. I had to wait a few hours. Then I saw a great movie called Instant Family about a couple that adopted teenagers. It starred Mark Walberg and was pretty touching and funny. The story emphasized the struggle that orphan teenagers have to be adopted. So many people want to give birth to children or adopt babies but not teenage orphans. Before we before we reached Tel Aviv, the stewardess offered me another free beer.
We had a fairly smooth landing where I could see Hebrew letters from the air near the ocean but in the airport when I went to pick up the luggage, it wasn’t there. I spoke to two airline representatives about this and they finally told me they would deliver it to my Mom’s house.
I called my brother in law who was picking me up outside the airport and told him I was here.
He arrived about 20 minutes later and couldn’t figure out how to use the GPS to get us to my Mom’s house. and it was getting dark. I started freaking out.
But my brother in law found a beautiful Yemenite synagogue in the country for the evening prayers since he is a religious Jew.
We finally got to my Mom’s apartment and I was told to stay with a neighbor because my Mom’s apartment was too crowded with my sister, her husband and my Mom there.
So I met the family downstairs that was hosting me. I found out I’d be staying in a bomb shelter room Here’s a picture of it.
End of chapter 1
This early morning I dreamed that I went to this mall with a restaurant that changed into a Greek place in Coronado and nearby, with boats in the harbor. I found a job there as somekind of spy where they paid me in advance with a gold or silver American Express card that had about 75,000 dollars on it, but it looked like a real gun. It had chocolate in it that you could eat from so I ate most of it. Then, the boss called me and told me I need to be at a meeting at that mall. So I got ready to go to the meeting near the mall but I had to change my clothes first. My ladyfriend’s young grandchilden were there when I started to change my shirt. They were kind of grossed out that I would change my shirt in front of them. I started to tell them that it was for work, but they didn’t hear me cause they left already. Then I drove to the training where I ended up getting there about a half an hour late,but the boss didn’t mind. I asked them if I ate all the chocolate from the gun, is that using up most of my money? They said yes, it was. I thought I’d better stop that right away. Then we all took a break to go to the bathroom and another agent, a male employee was peeing in the same toilet at the same time as me. The boss said he said he was supposed to do that. I woke up and realized I was dreaming.
I think this dream indicates that I shot my credit, that’s why the American Express cards was in the dream because I used too much of it by eating into it, and can’t pay off some my cards this month cause I had move out of my storage unit and had to go over budget to do it. While I am looking for a high paying job. I don’t quite get the sharing the toilet bit with another employee, though do you?
I was falling asleep last night and I thought about being in a nice cafe that serves Hawaiian coffee. Then I dreamed I was sitting in a live theater, in the audience, when an auction, at first by a pretty woman, to save the theater was going on stage. Then a man asked everyone for a donation of $70,000 to save the theater. No one donated it, but they said that’s Okay. And then they wanted to start the play, then I woke up.
I picked it up between two fingers cause I wanted to kill the spider, but then I saw that the spider was killing other bugs like flies and mosquitoes so I let go and moved on from there. This dream could be interpreted as wanting to kill my creativity. Because spider’s can represent creativity. But then I decided not to because they eliminate other bugs or problems in my life.
And I thought I would get a ticket but when I got back, everyone was helping me get it going again cause it was too crowded in the lot earlier and it stopped outside, but they helped me give it some super energy and it was charging up. I felt good about that!
I dreamed that I had a solar powered skateboard in my car, just in case I ran out of range for my electric car. I would take it out and skate with it to find another charging station if that one had too many cars on it, or for any other reason. After Googling this I found out solar powered skateboards really do exist and they work fine!
I landed at the airport. I thought I was in Paris at first and then I was trying to cross a busy street with alot of trucks and cars. All of a sudden, the cars were gone so I crossed the street and walked through pine trees that touched my face, to a bar where a guy was smoking and I didn’t like that, so I left the bar and I think I heard Karen Carpenter singing, “I’m So Glad I Live In Canada.” And then I woke up, realizing that she died along time ago, and maybe this was a hint that I should move to Canada, because the US will get hotter from climate change.
I dreamed I went to an office to pitch a movie and I was second in line. So another guy was ahead of me. He pitched his movie idea and then they called on me to pitch to Spielberg but I wasn’t really ready so I told them I would be ready tomorrow so they let me come back tomorrow, in 24 hours.
Then I dreamed that I was in a meetup group for people who liked to sail. Some of them were from Orange County or Cerritos. I was a little scared to go cause it was a long trip and I might get seasick. There was a test and only a few people could pass the test and go. I took the test, which involved typing with blocks, and sometimes typing in German or French. I didn’t think I did that well, but when the time came to who was to be on the trip, they announced my name Jordan Schaffner and I was picked to be first mate or third on the old sailing ship. I felt very elated. Many of my fears of going faded away. I felt great when I woke up because of both of those fun dreams that tested me.
It was going to be a fun, fancy part, bachelor party like I saw on Mad Men last night, and he sent me an embossed invitation. I felt like I could go to it but should I?
