You know how excited you get when someone tells you about a dream they just had? You're about to be that excited. Brace yourself for a riveting thrill-ride of inexplicable detail. From just before I woke up a bit ago:

I was current age but circa David Bowie's Scary Monsters era. He was doing a disco-sorta show with a huge combo backing him up. If David Bowie's show could be likened to the Love Boat, I was cruise-director Julie, as played by Lauren Tewes (minus the cocaine habit-- remember what a scandale that was???) I was running around, trying to make sure the 4 fabulous audience members had a good time. They needed to get up and boogie, so I jumped on stage with the Thin White Duke and we cut a rug. The crowd of 4 went wild, and when the show was over, I tried to take their photos, but someone had filled my camera with shots of the floor and of someone chewing gum.

Then we went to dinner. What does it all mean?

Yesterday was a strange day. I hope I'm not at the office until 8pm again. Yuck.

I went to bed about 11:00, and I woke up at 9:00AM, plumb tuckered out - perhaps that's why I had strange dreams. Glad a vacation is coming up. OOOH, I'm going to Arkansas in about a week, going by a friend's farm for at least a visit, and I hope I come home with more lovely cow photos. And stories, too. Her grandfather was one of those original Texas Rangers from the pioneer days, and she has lots of cool stories.
TOmorrow is Friday, right? Goody.

It was the liver of sulphur that did it. You were too confined in it and it's caused strange dreams. Be careful and have fun on your trip.

I'm not familiar with the U.S.A. but I thought 'OOOOh' and 'Arkansas' didn't belong in the same sentance.

Arkansas is a lovely state. Just b/c Clinton is from there, doesn't mean the entire state is spoiled!
And Phlegmy, YOU most definitely NEED a vacation, Woman! Git out of town, if you know what's good for you! *eg* And how divine that you have a friend with great story-telling abilities! Aren't they the best?!

THAT is a fucked up dream, fer sure. And Arkansas is beutiful. The Ozarks are one of my favorite places.

lainy - no more LOS indoors, pinkie swear.

tickersoid - pity you should think that - Arkansas is extraordinarily lovely in some spots. The Ozark mountains are beautiful.

hollyb - Yeah, it IS lovely, and the fact that I came from there balances out most of the bad karma from Bill Clinton. Yeah, good story-telling friends make life sweet!

fathairybastard - Yup, I thought it was messed-up. Yeah, one of my favorites, as well!

Your mention of Sharon Tewese... is now a good time to say I'm going on a cruise this summer... with Princess cruise lines no less?

(For those who may not know, that's THE cruise line depicted in "Love Boat.")

Your posts make me happy, phlegmie:)
