Lost me at vegan "cheese"

Or is that just tofu?  I mean that's basically soybean cheese I guess.

Eat cheese before bed?  I've been doing this study for the last 20 years or so.  What do they wanna know? And send the check

Do I get back pay??

Seems unlikely.  I frequently have late night snackin' cheese in the house and I rarely have nightmares.  Anxiety during the day seems like a more likely cause of nightmares.
 
2023-01-24 8:06:03 AM  
At this point I might be made of cheese, but I've never had nightmares after eating it before bedtime, despite the constant exhortations of my mother.

If you want some f*cked up dreams, there's a Portuguese dish of chorizo cooked in some kind of alcohol.  Went out for dinner with 5 people, 3 of us ate it and had properly hallucinogenic dreams, on par with acid hallucinations.  It was very, very weird.  Delicious though!

Perfect jobs?  My neighbor is a DJ at a topless place.  He always seems to decent looking girlfriends in their early 20's that seem to hang around for about 6 months and they seem to be replaced pretty quickly.  He drives a better vehicle than I.  I can't think of a better life style.

I don't think I'd qualify. Mainly because a) I don't remember my dreams except for VERY rare occasions and b) I'm lactose intolerant.

There are quite a few out there that are actually surprisingly close to real cheese, no tofu needed. Daiya is a brand, for one. Here is the ingredient list for their cheddar:

oat base (filtered water, oat flour), coconut oil, modified potato starch, natural flavors, salt, chickpea protein, chickpea flour, tricalcium phosphate, lactic acid, annatto color, vitamin b12
 
2023-01-24 8:26:05 AM  
No one with dairy intolerance? That's discrimination. I demand compensation in cheese and a weekend getaway for the wife while I consume said cheese.

Not sure about cheese and nightmares, but personally tonic water gives me extremely vivid dreams. Not nightmares, just dreams turned up to 11.

Once or twice they've been 'bad', but mostly they're just the sort of dreams where I wake up thinking how damn cool and crazy it was. Like riding on top of the space shuttle as we land next to a rocket powered double-decker bus.

If you like tonic water maybe have some tonic and juice before bed sometime and see if you get the same effect...

That could be the quinine.  Malaria meds make me hallucinate crazily when I first start taking them.

I was going to mention Katy Perry's boob wrangler from an article a good many years ago, but then your story has a job that is a little more achievable.

What is that dish called? I think I had it once, cooked by a Portuguese grandmother of a girl I was dating. I had crazy dreams as well. I did a lot of acid back in the day, but this was way weirder. Probably because I had no idea what was coming. And sleeping on the couch (Grandma's house so her rules, natch) with overly ornate furniture out of a Gaudi nightmare probably didn't help.

Maybe it was cooked with plenty of confidence.

Participants will be paid $1,000 each and also be reimbursed for the cost of the cheese, but don't go ordering any Pule or Wyke Farms cheddar just yet; Sleep Junkie will send you the list of cheeses to try. They'll cover a wide range, from bleu to hard, soft-ripened, and processed, plus vegan and lactose-free cheese.

I lived in Abidjan, Ivory Coast for 4 years, and then went to The Gambia on an ill-advised holiday.  Seriously, it's cheap for a reason, avoid.

I think it's chourico assado, cooked with Aguardiente, a distilled alcohol.  Your experience sounds very similar to mine, and I'm no stranger to psychedelics.

Not by much. I am ok with that. Nice thing about being the butt of a societal joke is the learned ability to brush things off and be comfortable with oneself. I like cheese. I like beer. My accent is a bit more nasally and twangy, though.

"Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life" they told me.  I tried doing that as as a freelance job, but it turns out you need to be hired by the specific person to be a boobie straightener. Not a single person at the park appreciated me doing it just for tips.

The worst part of that job is having to pretend it's just a mundane, ho hum job that can be tedious. "Yeah, tough day at the salt mine Honey. So tired. I'll bring dinner and meet you at home."
