Your Questions About Loft Apartment Pictures

Joseph asks…

What on earth inspired this weird dream?

I was a guy, about 18-20 years old . Kinda average looking, short, no extra weight but not thin. There was this campus that was part shopping mall, part university, part learning hospital. I was some kind of tech whiz (I’m not really) and kept using rollerblades to go wherever I needed to get to, carrying this backpack that had a laptop and some accessories in it. It was not heavy.

At one point, there was a trip to a home. In the loft apartment were some black and white paintings. Very nicely done, but they were black and white. Some were done by me, but one was not familiar at all and it interested me very much. It had a girl’s face on it, a face from a picture I saw on a story about a state representative not wanting to fund summer meals for kids. Even my dream character thought it was whack. When I went up to it to see what other stuff was in the painting (it was done in the fashion of a famous Obama painting, not much background detail at all), a guy and two gals came up to me and wanted my SD cards. I told them No way and looked for an escape. The escape suddenly appeared in the form of this water slide or luge (without water) looking thing that twisted down and out of the building, into a basement studio. I went down it and they didn’t. Don’t know why. There was a guy in the studio who was waiting for me to give him what I had on the SD cards. He was on my side. I asked him about foundations to help people like that girl and he told me I’d have to start one myself if that state representative gets her wish. (This is all a mish mash of things that doesn’t really fit together.) He liked the work, but expected the people to come after me for it and I was asking him why they won’t leave me alone and he said, Why do you think they won’t? Like I should know. I wasn’t sarcastic or upset acting in the dream. I was that kinda “sweet” pleasant acting person who people think is dumb or fake for not acting more aggressively about people picking at me. So I just didn’t respond and tried to figure out how to get to the learning hospital without those people accosting me and taking away my work equipment. Finally they started to come down the slide and I went out a door. One of the guys came up to me and started taunting me with his machete-like item, acting as though he’d get my backpack off with it or “accidentally” slice me. I kept going till I was in one of the rooms with the plastic anatomically correct body that breaks apart so you can examine it, the guy keeps making snide remarks about my background (what my dad and mom do for a living, for example) and then a surprise happens. He just stops being there. I’m left to hold the pieces of the anatomically correct body, examining, waiting for the guy to reappear and his friends to be with him. A woman comes in who is apparently my guy character’s really good friend and says she is breaking up coz those people will never leave me alone, and it is tiresome to always worry about sabotage, pranks, and possibly worse. I tell her to just go then while she is still talking and a professor comes in and says Anyone who is not a student needs to leave right now coz I’m not getting paid to babysit. :D
I don’t remember doing anything in the shopping mall; it was just part of the campus with people coming in and out with shopping bags.

I’m 29, female, and you can get other info from my bioblock. :D

Forgot to say, have been this guy in dreams before, but the last time I remember it, I was 23 and two days later…well…nothing like I am right now…sorry to be vague….
Have also recently been having dreams of being in a university, looking forfamiliar people to talk to. Keeps happening, with more than one person ending up as the familiar person I eventually find, but I always keep searching too. It’s weird enough to bug me, coz I’d like good dreams or story dreams or inspiring dreams, not this junior high stuff.

Administrator answers:

Sounds like you are really looking to learn something, even if you have to buy your knowledge. (Or the mall thing may be a word-play of hard-earned knowledge.) Your dreams suggest that you are open to looking anywhere for what you need.

Have you tried writing out the dreams, similar to what you did here? Often free-writing a dream will give it more depth, and it will turn out to not be so ‘junior high’ at all.

Michael asks…

Silo Stairs/recessed stairs/permanent ladder??

Okay, so for a math class I have to design an apartment that is only 12ftx12ftx12ft. we have a loft, and my mom has always talked about silo stairs, which are like basically rungs of a ladder put on a wall. does anyone have a picture of these?? or any information on them?

Administrator answers:

They are exactly that — a ladder mounted to the side of a wall.
If you have enough space in your design, you could always have them slightly slanted from floor to the loft.

Mandy asks…

Things You’d Never Know if it Weren’t For the Movies!!!!?

Large loft apartments in New York City are plentiful and affordable, even if the tenants are unemployed.

One of a pair of identical twins is evil.

Should you decide to defuse a bomb, don’t worry about which wire to cut. You will always choose the right one.

It doesn’t matter if you are greatly outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts. Your enemies will wait patiently to attack you one by one…dancing around in a threatening manner until you have dispatched their predecessors.

During all crime investigations, it is necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

All grocery shopping bags contain at least one baguette and one bunch of carrots with leafy tops.

It’s easy to land a plane, providing there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.

The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there, and you can travel to any other part of the building without difficulty.

You’re very likely to survive any battle in any war unless you make the mistake of showing someone a picture of your sweetheart back home.

Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it is not necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.

A man will show no pain while taking the most horrific beating, but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

If someone says “I’ll be right back,” they won’t.

Even when driving down a perfectly straight road, it is necessary to turn the steering wheel from time to time.

All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red readouts so you know exactly when they’re going to go off.

A police detective can only solve a case after he has been suspended from duty.

If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone around you will be able to mirror all the steps you come up with, and hear the music in your head.

All computers will boot up in less than a second.

When trying to enter a password, don’t even think about it: you’ll get it right the first time.

All German soldiers will speak English among themselves.

Once applied, lipstick will never rub off. Even while scuba diving.

The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building in Paris.

If a microphone is turned on it will immediately feedback.

Guns are like disposable razors. If you run out of bullets, just throw the gun away. You will always find another one.

All single women have a cat.

Cars will explode instantly when struck by a single bullet.

Oh yeah, about the “dark scene blue light”. It’s actually a black light bulb.

Richard asks…

I’m making a c&c cage tomorrow?

I got my coroplast this morning. I am so excited, just like playing with lego lol. Anyway I have a 4×8 sheet and I live in an apartment so that’s pretty much half my living room. I’m thinking two levels or a loft. I’m looking for your thoughts or suggestions. pictures would be amazing, or links.
thanks so much I know exactly what I’m doing now :)

Administrator answers:

I made a c&c about 6 months ago. I just made a 2×4 open top cage. I had a cage with a loft but the piggies never used it, so I decided not to make one this time. There are lots of pictures on http://www.guineapigcages.com in the forum or picture section. Great ideas on there. I joined that site and they have given me alot of advice!

That´s a good laugh for a Firday! Thanks, ZXCV, the 12°C “sunshine” here in Germany feels a lot warmer for reading that.

I especially liked the one about the L-shaped sheets. And you forgot about how the guys always manage to defuse a bomb one second before it was timed to go off.
