Maybe it's because I was hungry yesterday but didn't eat anything because nothing was appealing.
But last night I had a dream I was eating orange peels and cocoa mix powdered. I vividly recall savoring the texture. The soft bite of the skin and the grit of the dry powder between my teeth.

Chocolate oranges are a thing. Maybe you should try eating some orange peels and cocoa mix and see how it turns out.

This is an objectively terrible idea. Cocoa powder tastes nothing like chocolate any way. (Speaking from my childhood experience of shoving a crap ton of it in my mouth then being like "OH GAWD THIS TASTES AWFUL WTF??"

Just get some Jaffa cakes or something less ... raw, to put it mildly. Jaffa is chocolate-orange flavour and I PERSONALLY LOVE IT.

As for dreams, when I was in a sort of limbo between dreaming but still being somewhat awake, I'd just hours ago watched a shit ton of movie trailers at the cinema prior to watching detective pikachu, and I had all these dreams of how my games would look if rendered into blockbuster-level high budget movies.

Had a lot of funny comedic scenes as well. Like Tristy falling through Lazarus as he is ethereal and she just sorta falls though him and he shrugs nonchalantly while playfully acting like he can catch her.

Or Koko having one of her breakdowns and losing her shit during the Daddy issues phase of her life and Lilac shooshpapping her to calm the fuck down.

Ofcourse there were more epic scenes as well, like Yi doing the terminator eye gleam as the background faded out to black around her, or the free-falling part of intelligence where rolly pep and Tristy descend down into the city below from a skyrail.

So that was a nice dream before going to sleep for 10 hours where no dreams were vivid enough for me to remember.

You are a fool. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry%27s ... ate_Orange this is one of the most popular chocolate products in the UK, I don't know a single person who doesn't love this chocolate.

It tastes very different to the orange flavour you're imagining due to the milk chocolate. Cocoa in general mixes well with a lot of stuff that is a million miles away from regular cocoa flavour. Chilli, strawberry, cherry, mint are examples of other flavours that can be found mixed with chocolate.

EDIT: Actually on second thought, you're not going to get the Terry's flavour eating orange peel/zest with cocoa. Buy Jaffa Cakes or Terry's Chocolate Orange, far less work required in getting the orange:cocoa flavour balanced.

I literally said get Jaffa cakes or something that isn't straight cocoa powder and orange peels. Dude Choc-orange is one of my favourite flavors, just not when my means for making it is orange peels and cocoa powder (which as I clarified, tastes nothing like chocolate due to it being so raw and not having any sugar added.)

You may as well eat straight coffee powder with curds and call it a cuppacino, lmao.

Pregnancy isn't a requirement to dream of eating unconscionably stupid things.

It certainly helps, though.

When my mother had me she ate celery like a horse because her body told her to, must be something in celery that her body knew she needed.

I had a dream I went to a library and just walked around looking at all these unfamiliar kids books. And then people were setting up tables and chairs like there was a dinner, maybe a wedding reception? But it was just trays of cookies. Then we started forming lines to get food where I met my mom who started talking to me. But I was like "Shhhh". And she's like, "What's wrong?"
and I'm like, "I can't turn around." and she's like "Why not?" and I said "Cause I was in a library, but now I'm here" Then it was like I couldn't move my eyes to see her react. But I refused to shut them, so I was looking passed her and I was standing uncomfortably still. "But I didn't go through a door"
And then I woke up because I realized I was dreaming. But it's weird how the dream shut me down like that, it wasn't going to let me see a contradiction.

I don't seem to have long dreams that I remember much anymore, but the mini-dreams before I properly wake up are to die for because they seem better weaved to what I like. Basically this one I just woke up from was set in a typical american school cafeteria, where people are getting not horrible food that could give them cancer by some happenstance, and after a sharing of food between a couple of friends is demonstrated, some guy asks best girl (Patchouli from touhou) fairly nicely if he could have some little pieces of beef, everything was bite size for some reason. Patchouli responds by picking up her in-hand fork, vaguely pointing it in his direction and threatening that "If you want a fork through your heart, go right ahead." before going back to eating. The guy is taken aback and as he's walking away he says "alright keep your food geez I'll ask someone else" to which Patchouli replies under her breath but likely purposefully loud enough for him to here "Yeah, that's right little pig." and then he gets all in her face, towering over her, he's a big guy who uses intimidation and his size to win his battles, and yells that "WHHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!?" and she just calmly keeps eating while getting out "Much quieter and reserved than you" before pulling out a napkin to wipe the few minor stains on her face and returning her gaze to him "but I can make you a lot more things that I am not if you want to take us there." His friends pull him back, saying stuff like "it's not worth it dude" he ends up in the principal's office who is dr briefs for some reason, this is where it gets really interesting.

"So you didn't get what you wanted and got some sass for it and you responded like an ogre?"
"She threatened me with a fork to the heart... it's, not a common thing for me and threw me off kilter..."
"he says after making various empty threats to other schoolkids for menial things(in a short under his breath manner just loud and clear enough for the boy to hear) Listen ..Bradley, Bronston?
"IT'S BRESTON"
"Right right, your family has an odd naming convention too, if you really must continue this trend of using intimidation to steam roll through life, don't use it on people that radiate that presence that she does... she isn't so calm and unfazed for a reason."
"What? What is she even here for... are you saying that-"
"The school cannot control beings of her magnitude. She'll show up some days, and then disappear for lengths of time, then be back again, with no enrolment or evidence she was ever a student enrolled at all, but what we did learn early on is that trying to force her to exit the school ended with (a few images slide by of horrific nature) failure."
Breston is stunned aback for a while. Dr Briefs continues.
"If there are any people you aren't inclined to mess with, mark her on your list. If she followed through with her threat- as she has little trouble doing if the past is anything to go by-- there's naught we at the school could do."

Then the next morning comes and the guy is noticeably shaken, Patchouli sits beside him and says "By that look on your face, it seems you now know something of what I am. You're a lucky kid, Breston. You have friends that will keep you out of danger's warpath. Had they not intervened (a dark disturbing version of patchouli's theme play's as she turns to face him with her shining purple eyes) "You'd be the guest of honor at your own funeral."
harsh fade to black with a movie-hit se and the the music is harshly silenced, it says NEXT PHANTASM down the bottom. Then i woke up, feeling joyed of the dream but frustrated because I'll be waiting about a year for the next episode of the Memories of Phantasm.

And that was it, possibly one of the best dreams I've had in ages, dr briefs lecturing someone in their dbz abridged voice, a bully getting put in his place and some scary fucking girl who also is best girl. All green ticks.

I guess this is what watching all those touhou animes, listening to so much of the OST it can keep the tone fresh for a whole 6+ hour stream and having a patchouli doll in my proximity can do.

Now I can say with only the slightest hint of irony. That I dream in anime.

Also that line "You'd be the guest of honor at your own funeral" is one I'm finding a way to use.

Assumed you meant Camembert, like the cheese. But then was like no, you said Cambert, and you're british which means you're automatically a cheese enthusiast (I learned such an intricate and frivolous lesson from watching a lot of Wallace and Gromit when I was a wee laddie), and so I had to google to find out the odd clock dilemma.

Well you either meant it was made of robert cambert or another famous person or--

You've been lied to your entire life.

That or Cambert is a brand of Camembert in Britain and holy shroomnannies that would be confusing!

Camembert*, yes. I think a Chrono-Fromagical lack of sleep has caused to skip lets.
