I was taking a trip to Hong Kong by ship.
All the ships were out in the bay. Eventually, our ship would come closer, to the dock, but for people in first class, or with children or handicaps, you could preboard the ship by taking a water taxi out to it... but they charged for the service, it turned out, charged quite a lot in fact. So I decided to wait for the ship to come in.
As it arrives, a crew guy on the dock is looking in the water for a girl who apparently jumped in. In addition to being the deck emergency guy, he was apparently also one of the kitchen staff.
So the boat eventually settles alongside the dock and I go aboard. It's very crowded. And then as it starts pulling away from the dock I realize I've gotten onto the wrong ship! I rush back to the gangplank to exit. As I do so, I pass my cousin Carrie, who says she'll see me in Hong Kong. I nod and run down the gangplank.
Back at the terminal, I go find the bathroom. Outside the men's room is a large-breasted girl in a tight sweater. She seems to be sort of flirting with every guy who goes into the men's room. I am ashamed to admit that I was distracted, but not extremely so, because I noticed out of the corner of my eye a scruffy young guy who was taking advantage of my distraction to try to swap some other backpack for mine. The girl was clearly his accomplice.
I confront the two of them-- you dirty thieves!-- and two more guys step out of the shadows. More accomplices. I realize that I am going to have to fight them-- at least the three guys-- but I'm not too worried because I'm going to fight completely dirty.
Later, I dreamt about a fellow Apple employee, M., and her husband C., and how they apparently had worked out a system of cheating on each other that they were both comfortable with. "Oh, so you have an open marriage now?" No, they assured me they were quite monogamous, they just couldn't help but screw around behind each others' backs, but they'd worked a system for tracking it all to make sure it was equitable and balanced.
Then I swent swing dancing with a girl named Lydia.
