02:09 am - oh what in the hell
Even in my dream I was hungry.

I drove around from supermarket to supermarket, but it was a holiday -- and it was raining -- and so they all were closed. Finally I found a CVS in a shopping center next door to a closed supermarket. When I went in I noticed that everybody else was there too shopping for food, as none of us had apparently heard it was a holiday. Then someone made an announcement that "there was also food available for sale in our upstairs department" and a few of us took to the upstairs department like a shot.

The upstairs department turned out to be a few offices in an L-shaped hallway. One of them had a lady in it who had a bunch of canned food and a six-sided die. I apparently got to roll the die twice and each time receive food based on the roll I made. A 6 meant I got as much as I wanted and a 2 meant I got one can. If I rolled a 1, however, (signified by a big red dot on the die) that corresponded to "Pinch Me" and the lady would be able to give me a pinch on the arm and I wouldn't get any food for that. The rules, handwritten on a sheet of paper in front of us, also mentioned a variant of the game that involved two dice and more food options, but I played the single die version. I rolled a 3 and a 4.

The cans of food were mostly unlabeled and the lady warned me "I know we have some cat food in the pile here too." Luckily I saw the cat food labels and were able to avoid them. That must've been fortunate. So I loaded myself up with canned food and presumably went home to eat, but that's when I woke up and realized I'd been out for almost 12 hours, when I'd only really wanted to sleep for four or five.

Damn.

And I'm still hungry.

At least your dream did not feature Abbie brutally savaging you for not getting any cat food.

You rolling a 3 and a 4 reminds me of Rimmer's Risk diary...
