My Little Corner of the World

So, things I've learned lately:

no matter how early i get up in the morning, i will inevitably be late and/or forget something.

i like grocery shopping for about $50 worth of stuff in 20 min. verses $125 worth of groceries in an hour.

i don't like keeping things in the fridge without lids on...especially not chocolate pudding cups. they are lightweight and fall out and spill all over your white shirt when you're running late.

i don't like driving in a cami while i try to dry out my shirt that had to have the pudding washed out of it, with the car a.c. on full blast. i get cold, and feel too exposed, even though it's a tank top.

i think that police are out to get me. i've had a cop directly behind me at least 6 times today. when i lose them, another one shows up. i'm not doing anything wrong...i don't think.

my dog can pee for 4 min. straight, especially when he hasn't gone outside for 16 hours...i know write me up for pet negligence.

my life many times feels like anyone else could live it better and easier than i do....but then i guess the mystery of how i make life so crazy and unpredictable would never be solved.

Dream a Little Dream

I had quite an unusual dream last night, and since I seldom remember my dreams, it was definitely a treat to be able to laugh about this morning. I'm not sure what in the world made me have it, but none the less, it amuses me to think of how my mind takes in information.

I was being chased a lot from place to place. In parking decks, or large houses. At one point I was in a car trying to outrun someone following me, and then arrive at a location, and hurriedly gather lots of random belongings. I remember looking over all of these things on shelves in a forest type setting (like the shelves weren't really on a bookshelf, more on the trees, stretching out near a river), and trying to gather important things. One of the things I remember pondering whether or not to take was the game Mastermind.

So anyway, then it skipped to having been caught by whoever was tracking me down. And, as I was sitting in the torture chair, having my inner ear zapped by a shocking mechanism (lovely, I know), all I remember hearing was,

"Now will you recycle? Now will you use your personal grocery bag? WILL YOU!!???"

Is that not totally hilarious? I mean, I'm pretty environmentally minded. I recycle, and try to conserve. But I did forget my personalized shopping bag yesterday when I went to the store. I guess, I'm scared I'll be punished for that. ha ha.
