  • 5 guys hitting on me (really, 4: one of the guys tried twice)
  • 4 times a 66-year-old told me she was retired "summathatime" (she had a helluva mustache)
  • 3 peanut butter tasty-kakes consumed (one of them had randomly flipped over in the package)
  • 2 movies watched (meet the parents and last holiday)
  • 1 fight/negotiation with a parking garage attendant ($30 doesn't always mean $30...)
have in common?

Soundtrack of my life

Last night, I had a terrible dream about dying in a plane crash. It was real and vivid and for about 45.7 seconds after it shook me out of slumber, I wanted to shake my atheist ways and believe in an afterlife.

Anywho...it made me think of this Eels song-p.s. you rock my world from electro-shock blues

ps. i looked up die at
http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary-the positive explanation is way better. I pick that one:

To dream that you die in your dream, symbolizes inner changes, transformation, self-discovery and positive development that is happening within you or in your life. Although such dreams may bring about feelings of fear and anxiety, it is no cause for alarm and is often considered a positive symbol. Dreams of experiencing your own death usually means that big changes are ahead for you. You are moving on to new beginnings and leaving the past behind. These changes does not necessarily imply a negative turn of events. Metaphorically, dying can be seen as an end or a termination to your old ways and habits. So, dying does not always mean a physical death, but an ending of something.

On a negative note, to dream that you die may represent involvement in deeply painful relationships or unhealthy, destructive behaviors. You may feeling depressed or feel strangled by a situation or person in your waking life. Perhaps your mind is preoccupied with someone who is terminally ill or dying. Alternatively, you may be trying to get out of some obligation, responsibility or other situation.

Wish I was...

How great was Freaks and Geeks? Everyone always identified with Lindsey Weir, but I was feeling Kim Kelly all the way. Think about high school:
1. crappy car - check
2. fondness of the herbal refreshment - check
3. relationship based on physical, but that once in awhile verges on sweet - check
4. don't care about school - check
5. tight-ass jeans - check

I like to imagine that Kim Kelly waited tables for 2 years, went to community college and then went on to university to get a business degree and become a successful real estate agent. I think she got married young to a rich guy, got divorced about 2 years later with some re-dick alimony and was rich after that forever more.

She went on to marry at 32 to a 25-year-old artist (that wasn't successful). They live in a loft in Buffalo or something. Somewhere not-so-cool, that has a few cool neighborhoods.

5 weddings + 1 bachelorette weekend away + 2 bridal showers
7 weeks

I'm broke, I'm tired, I'm sick of champagne (GASP!) and I'm too old for this sh*t.

I can't wait until November. seriously.can.not.wait. I will go to the movies, I will go to the farmer's market, I will hike with dogger and I will sleep. It will be loverly.


This is why Republicans can still win elections. Unfortunately, fear propels choices.

Soundtrack of my life

Remember that terrible show Ally McBeal? (Confession: I loved it at the time.) She had a soundtrack. I think it was one song that always played when she felt hot, or maybe another song that played when she made a mistake.

I, like many other laydees that grew up in the age of cds and mp3s, have a version of a soundtrack. Certain songs speak to me, and depending on what kind of week/night/day/weekend I have, my soundtrack changes.

This past weekend I attended a wedding of a college friend. I saw people I hadn't seen in 10 years, and thought about things I rarely think of anymore. In honor of that, my songs of the week need to convey 20-year-old angst and ridiculousness and everything in between:
