I enter a college campus buidling following some other students that have gone in right before me. We all walk merrily down some halls ways I remember there being posters on the wall, but I didn't really pay any attention to them. I forget where I was headed, but I enter a room and there is an enormous box, at least ten foot square (but about four foot high) and filled...just filled with various stuffed toy animals. I recognize some of the charaters. I stop and look through them. Although in the dream I seem to recognize the toys as characters from tv shows and movies, I don't remember them now, but somehow I heard or someone tells me that all of the toys would be thrown out, and that anyone who wants them may take them, but we could only take one toy. I thought it was a good idea, and found a toy right away that I thought was fun. It looks sort of like a fluffy frog with a mouth full of triangular teeth, sort of vicious looking, and I don't notice until a minute or so later that it's actually a puppet, and I experimentally put my hand into it and move it's mouth. I have decided to take this toy, but I also think I might have misheard about them, and am not sure if I have to pay for the toy. I hope it doesn't cost a lot as I don't have much with me, and I would feel embarrassed about putting it back for lack of affordability. It doesn't come up again, though.
I carry the toy with me, and I think other people take one, and then we all go into a room where we all sit down in chairs arranged in a circle.
Something strange happens, and I am not sure what, but I look down at the furry frog toy I had and it's turned black. Before it had been multi colored with bright cheerful colors. Only the teeth were still white. I feel confused and just a bit scared. I hold up the toy and ask out loud, just to anyone listening, "Hey, did anyone else notice that this toy wasn't all black like this before?" or something like that, and although some people look, they just shake their heads. I think they're not sure.
I look to the side and see that I am looking out a broken window. I feel uncomfortable, and then realize something about this sitation is really really odd, and then realize that I am dreaming. I also feel like I've had this exact dream before, and not just a dream with a similar theme. It was the same dream, but I couldn't remember what exactly would happen, but I seem to realize that there may be a way to alter how I experience the dream now that I am lucid.
I am still looking out the window and watch as the broken glass pieces appear to grow back together slowly. I feel nervous. I don't want to have this dream again I think in the dream, and I am not one hundred percent sure that being lucid will help matters significantly.
It has to be said that although I have been experiencing lucid dreams for going on 25 years now, I have never really been able to control much about them.

Inspired by Robert Waggoner's book I thought I would attempt to use lucid dreams to discover future events. I wrote down my intention on a note book in an attempt to solidify the intention. I was not specific about WHAT I would predict, just any event/s at all beginning from this morning until Saturday evening. The following are the dreams I remember having. It's imporant to say I never became lucid during my dreams from last night. Of course I won't know if what I dreamt about is in anyway related to upcoming actual events, but from what I recall it's pretty much impossible and at best it would be highly symbolic.
The Too Small Shoes
In one dream I am at a shoe store and I've found a pair of shoes. They do not have laces or anything, you just slide into them, and they're a light tan color and sort of like suede. The size is on the box and it's in black letters on a small white card, it simply says 10/10. (In real life I wear a size 7.5, so size ten would be HUGE on me) In my dream I think these shoes look nice and I want to try them on. They are too small, although I do manage to mash my foot into it, it's way too tight.
I had taken off both my shoes before trying on the new shoes. They were a piar I used to own a long time ago, and they were also slip on, and sort of expandable, and very breatheable. I threw out those shoes long ago because they fell apart. However, a woman standing in front of me has taken my shoes (the ones I took off to try on the new ones) and put them on her feet. I try to tactfully tell her, to save her from embarrassment that she's tried on my old shoes. They're really obviously old, as the soles are all scruffy. She appologizes and removes the the shoes. I don't remember any more of that dream.
Hedgehogs and Porcupines
In this dream I am at my old house where I used to live with my parents. I am looking out my bedroom window where I see two small animals walking around in the back yard. I think they look like hedgehogs, and worry that my cat or dog will worry then and I want to get into the backyard to pick up the hedgehogs and then figure out what to do with them next. (Hedgehogs are not native to where I live).
However, upon going outside and approaching the animals I find they're not hedgehogs at all and more closely resemble porcupines, but they have hardly any quills. I decide I must approach them more carefully, they were getting all defensive.
I also do not remember how that dream ends.
This dream is confusing and it also gets really gross round the end. I seem to be in a state on confusion in this dream. I feel like I am in the wrong body, somehow (though I don't remember what my body was like at the time) only I know it feels all wrong, and I want to do something to get my real body back. I think I find an answer. There is this black wooden trapezoid shaped box thing that it affixed to a wall, and the idea is to lower it on your head and that it feeds your mind a series of images or some junk and that's supposed to fix you all up. I lower the thing to my head, and images are flashed into left eye only. It always looked like the same image or variations of the same image. The best I can describe it is a sort of artistic rendering of a skull, white on black. it's all jittery and flashes on and off and moved around. I don't understand what it has to do with putting me into my right body, but eventually the images stop, and I assume the process is over, and I lift the thing off my head and look down at my body.
I am not sure what to make of it, but it sure as hell isn't what I hoped for or expected. I am a big fat green ogre, like shrek, and what's more I am also a male ogre. I was in a state of controlled shock. I was definitely not happy about this body. I sort of back away from the device and walk around wondering what I am going to do next. No one seems to think I am out of place, as there are many people around. I keep feeling the need to pat my body down, as if that might help press me back into the right shape, not that I knew what that even was, just that this one sure wasn't right.
Next thing I know I have wandered into some hilly place, and I am up high looking down on the scenery. There are more of the ogre creatures like myself milling around. My eyes land on a female ogre and she's holding a baby ogre before her. This is kind of far away, I would say I am about 500 feet away, but I can see it all clearly.
The female ogre is running up a hill, and suddenly two male ogres follow her up the hill. They are easily twice her size. I think that's normal. They seem to be diliberately staying behind her, although they could have easily caught her, if that was what they wanted to do, but they had something else in mind. They kept reaching up to her buttocks and touching her there, and then it appeared there was something coming off on their fingers that looked sort of like light blue jell-o, and then they'd eat it. I keep watching thinking that I MUST be not seeing this right, but they both kept doing this, and the female ogre doesn't appear to notice, or at least she doesn't turn around and tell them to stop it, but it does look like she's hurrying even more up the hill.
The two huge males keep following her and eatting whatever the hell it was that was coming out of her backside. I am thinking to myself in the meantime how incredibly disgusting that is, and I would have done something about it if it were not for the case that I was so far away.
The female ogre finally comes upon a hole in the side of the hill, and the two males follow her all the way to the edge of the hole, until she dives into the hole with the baby, and disappears, the two males are much too large to follow her into the hole, but they try to reach into the hole to get one last swipe.
I am reeling with disgust, and also feel offended and somehow frightened by what I had just witnessed.
The thing with the shoes is pretty much the only thing that could remotely be possible. I personally detest shopping for shoes, so at least there is no way that could happen in the time I indicated in my note book. I am pretty sure this one is a failure, but then again I never did become lucid. I was also just not going to record the dreams because they were kind of plain, except for the orge one, which was just vulgar.

I was some sort of creature in this dream. I can't say what I was like, only that I could walk on all fours if I wanted to, and I also had claws. I had a companion creature with me also. That one I can describe, because I got a good look at it. I considered the animal my friend, whatever it was. It had inky black fur, so dark you couldn't see any other features except for its large eggs sized amber/orange eyes. I remember we had walked up a grassy hill and I thought that this was a fine place to rest. The grass was cool and soft, and the black creature lays down on it's stomach. A pace or two away I begin to lay down to when something catches my attention. Up in the air I see somethign dark pass across my vision, and then it vanishes behind a tree. I keep looking up to see if I will see it again, and sure enough it comes back. An enormous bat, and it's decending down upon me. The only way to meet him face to face was if I rolled over on my back. So I do that with every intention of using my claws to strike and hopefully do a serious injury to the bat. I suppose the bat thought the better of it, and tuned aside at least a meter or so before meeting me to avoid my defense. In the dream I had been so surprised to see him. In dreams from my past, like more than ten years ago. I often encountered bats, and they were nearly always antogonistic. In some instances they were gigantic. Even I was often a giant bat, too, and I am no longer sure what that could mean. However it was not always the case that I would be an animal or some sort of creature when this huge bat appears. In the dream I recognized him from dreams long ago, though I was not really aware that I was dreaming. I was aware I had not seen the bat in a long long time, and was pretty sure I had seen the last of him.
Maybe it is time to re-read those old dreams.
