Looking for Houses in The Strangest of Places

Firefly was looking at houses and found one but no realtor would show it to her. It was in Israel. I asked if she really wanted to live there and she got very huffy and said that dammit it was the principle of the thing. She found a realtor in Israel and we went there, and looked around. I think we had to change realors at one point though. Anyway, on the way back she wanted to see the gaza strip. In my dream it was a bit like a big area in a mall, all blown out and sandy and rocky, with a strip going through it that was walled to about waist height and is just wide enough to walk through. On the end it goes through a wall and into the rest of the mall, which is quite nice.

As we were leaving Firefly wanted to see the gaza strip, and so we did (I hope in my dream I protested). As we were leaving our realtor grabbed her baby carriage and started talking to the guard at the end, and I just knew she was actually a suicide bomber with a baby carriage full of explosives. She pushed the carriage towards the guard and as it fell I dropped down and yelled "bomb". Dana had appeared out of nowhere coming down the strip to get out into the mall and he executed a military-grade drop and cover just as the carriage hit the ground. Nothing happened. He came through the exit into the mall just as they were cranking it shut. Not sure where he went then but Firefly was back and we decided to keep looking for real estate closer to home.

McDonalds Drivethrough Nightmare

I had this dream, nay nightmare last night. I was working at McDonalds on the drivethrough, no training, no experience, just thrown in there. I screwed everything up. There was a long lineup and I was soooo slow. I wasn't taking orders but I was building the food at the second window. Orders would show up on a computer screen in front of me, I had to decipher what they meant, build them and give them to the cars that drove up. I didn't have any of the fancy machines to put on the mustard and whatnot so I had to do it by hand with condiment packages. At one point I had a machine on the wall to squirt mustard out but it turns out it was water. I still poured it all over the burger, with a guy waiting right there and watching, even though there was a big 'water' sign there.

I screwed up everything else too... At one point I had to make a big mac or something, two paddies, lots of toppings.... just messed it right up by somehow making two of them and then trying to get them into one wrapper on top of each other, then realizing that I had two and found that I couldn't even get one in! Other things I did in this dream was once with a mis-shaped burger pattie I just squished it into the bun so it fit, and I think I actually took a bit off of another so it would fit. What a nightmare.
