not at all in need of therapy  
I dreamed I lived in a huge house that had become a refuge against an apocalyptic world for me and a handful of my friends--except that mid-slumber-party my friends also invited a rock band to stay, and they took over the entire living room. I suggested that they might want to expand to other rooms in the house, but meanwhile it was turning into party central, so I left to wander upwards through the many floors and rooms of my mansion. I was surprised by the number of people wandering the halls in what had once been an empty place entirely my own.

In the penthouse, I found my sparring partner--a tough handsome man rather like Michael in La Femme Nikita. We squared off for a sword fight, but my sword was like a Chinese yo-yo, those party favors where you flip a curl of paper forward off a stick, then pull it back. So I went to find another sword in my weapons storeroom; I kept finding short knives and other inadequate substitutes (step away from your paperback copy of Freud for Beginners, please) and I don't think we ever got around to the sex swordplay, my hunt devolving into a series of navigational zigzags through women's locker rooms.

And thus I begin my day.

This reminds me of a theme I've had recur in my dreams for several years where I've been walking through a large house with many rooms, nooks, crannys, doors, hallways, etc. Recently I decided to research what this is believed to "mean" and found it's supposed to relate to search for spiritual truths. Empty rooms theoretically mean you're seeking answers and furnished rooms mean you have a well-developed spiritual philosophy that you're just checking in on to see if it needs any tweaking.

So I'd say pretty much the whole dream was your subconscious trying to tell you something, not just the part with finding a sparring partner.

Hmmm. So you are looking for meaning in women's locker rooms? :)

I began my day dreaming that a group of us somehow ended up with Hannibal Lecter in our midst, and were using him to "take care" of a couple of undesirable folks (I have no idea how, mind you...he's above Jedi Mind Tricks, I'd wager.). At the point I woke up, I'd started to realize in the dream that once we were done, he was likely to turn on us--and I was trying to decide how to deal with that.

In that just waking state, I think I also determined that the best punishment for him would be partial lobotomy.

Uh-huh.

"step away from your paperback copy of Freud for Beginners, please"

Is this message for me?!
This is very similar to the long dream you had the other day - where you squared up with a guy and he gave you a knife to even it up?

I think progress is being made, in your mind, because this time you have your own weapons - they're just in storage.

You should go to women's locker rooms - and get training!

Hee. No. *g*

Good observation! I'd forgotten that. Anna's Dreams Are Full of Knives

And rather...limp.

You have limp knives?
You can get stuff for that...
