Signs that I need to get out more

Actual dreams that I had in the last few days:

1. I was at the supermarket.

2. I put shampoo on my hair before wetting it. Weird!

3. That dream above, about the supermarket? That was it. The whole thing. I bought chicken.

4. And salad.

5. I was writing an email. I can't remember to whom.

6. I was sitting around with Scott, and we both realized we were in a dream, and I said we should do something crazy. We couldn't come up with anything. And then I fell asleep. In my dream.

Topics that I've considered addressing in my next post:

1. My kitty cat sure is getting fat!

2. Uh…

3. Really. She's fat.

4. Uh, Easter?

5. Well, Scott told me his work might dry up soon, and I was hyperventilating into paper bags for a while, but then he started a new project. So. Never mind.

6. If there's a cheese I dislike out there, I'll tell you, I haven't yet found it. Go, cheese.

Wake me when it's April. What are you people doing? Anything good?

This must be a bad time of year for blogging funks. I realized I've been writing about being sick for almost three straight weeks. I think I'm going to do a meme tomorrow, just to make the whining stop.

I keep having a re-occuring dream that I am in the Super Wal-Mart, grocery side. I walk down the milk aisle and there is a chute that's closed. So, I walk down the next aisle, and I realize it's a Milk Roller Coaster. WTF?

You have issued yourself a challenge, Alice. There was a story about CAMEL'S MILK CHEESE in the Dining section of the NY Times yesterday. Yep. Fur mega reals. So now... you have something to write about and to get you out of the house. Because really? I live in Boston and might actually take the train to NYC just to buy camel cheese. (I wonder if it's kinda sandy?)

This morning, my housemate told me all about this dream she had last night about eating lobster in New Orleans with Allen Ginsberg.

Then she sends me this link, the first thing she finds on Boing Boing this morning.

Allen Finsberg? God save us all.

I had a dream once that I was cooking a chicken named Lincoln.

What am I doing? How kind of you to ask, Alice. I just finished a bowl of home-made pesto pasta, and tonight's episode of Lost just came to a close. Now I am off to the exciting world of Boston Legal, season 3, disc 2, courtesy of Netflix. Life does not get more titillating.

Last week, I dreamt that I got up in the morning, took a shower, got dressed and stepped out of my apartment, heading for work. Then I woke up. I *wish* I had dreams as riveting as yours.

I remember dreaming that I put money under my son's pillow (like a good little tooth fairy), and when he ran downstairs in the morning crying, I realized that I hadn't actually done it. :/ Then came the letter from the tooth fairy explaining her "broken wing" mishap.

I had a dream a while back that I had a gotten an adminstrative job and suddenly realized that post-its were delicious. I kept eating them one after the other and I couldn't stop. Then they fired me because I ate all the post-its.

Yup, I'm up to putting the bedroom furniture back in the bedroom and the living room furniture back in the living room, because we are now both cancer-free, able to walk upright, and don't have to live like 83-year-olds anymore.

I'm normally not very domestic, but this time, it's filled with joy.

How in the world do you write about nothing and make me laugh? I had a dream that I took a cage of 15 ferrets to my daughter's first grade class and they all escaped. They were hard to catch, because they had twisty necks that could bend like snakes and bite you with horribly sharp teeth. They started living in the walls of the school. I felt really, really bad about that.

Thanks for the laugh out loud. I drove around while my kids slept on Easter afternoon looking for some item of clothing to buy that would just get me through this long month of un-Spring. Everything was closed. Even Target and Walmart. I mean, a girl just wants to spend some money to feel better sometimes.

I took a week off from work so I could be with the kids for spring break. I dreamed about work every night.

I take care of wild critters--the kind people find when they should be doing something else instead of critter-napping baby critters. The feeding of the babies is never ending, but I love it.

So, just for history's sake, 9 days is not enough time from work for me to stop dreaming about work.

But we had easter and Lillie (almost 7) couldn't get over that the easter bunny visited our house 2 days before easter, and grandad's house the day before, but didn't show the day of. She was very worried about it. But she ate all of her candy and had a big ol stomach ache right before bed. Of course, I told her that she wasn't throwing up so stop complaining.

I am such a good mama!!!

Okay, I know I am late to the comment party, but we have been at MIL's for the last week before Easter and I am just now catching up with you Alice. And I will say that in Houston and Austin, this is probably the nicest weather we will get this year, before the sun comes to scorch us, and I will not apologize for enjoying it. We have been planting our "pico de gallo" garden and we went to the zoo and we have been building things out of cardboard boxes out the wazoo and making paper mache bracelets.

I'm pounding back a club-pack of Cadbury Mini-Eggs. Screw Cheese!
