Even Soybeans Have Dreams


So I woke up with a really sore throat and went back to sleep for most of the day. Last night I had a weird dream and today I had one too. Havent been remembering them much lately so I guess this is good that I am now. Dreammoods can tell me things I already know.

So I have 2 towels that I always use, and I think my dad had one in his car that was kind of falling apart. They're burnt orange organic cotton from West Elm and I always use them. I trimmed it up or whatever but for some reason in my dream I was returning it, to a department store. They had some that looked the same, the tag said organic cotton, and the lady was going to let me exchange them. But for some reason I had to go to her house, which was like attached to the store. I saw her bathroom kind of had some hotel like products, soap etc in cool containers so I stole them. Then I was wandering around and I couldnt see. I was waiting for her to come back and getting so frustrated with my blindness that I just screamed at the top of my lungs. Then I realized they were on the bathroom counter. Then I went outside and my dad and my brother were in a big open field. Jake was saying there was something wrong with this girl-dog. So we looked and she had a splinter in her pee-pee. But it was a boys pee-pee like shadows. (I think this just means I worry about shadow too much/ and he licks his pee pee way too often)

DM says: To see or use a towel in your dream, suggests that you need to deal with your emotions in order to move forward in your life. You need to find some sort of a resolution. Alternatively, it represents completion, a fresh start and new transition. To dream that you are blind, represents your refusal to see the truth or your lack of awareness to a problem. Perhaps you are rejecting something about yourself or your situation. To dream that you are stealing, denotes that you are deprived and where the stealing takes place (at home, the office, at school....) is indicative of your neediness. Alternatively, it may signify unrealized and unfulfilled goals. You may have set your goals too high. To see green fields in your dream, symbolizes great abundance, freedom, and happiness. You may also be going through a period of personal growth. Alternatively, this dream may simply be an expression for your love of nature. To see dead or barren fields, signifies lack, pessimism and your jaded prospects for the future.

super de-duper eh?

Pledge

Read the Printed Word!

Well, you can't even see this really but its a dumb pledge going around the blogosphere for people who read everything on the internet to try and get back to book basics or somesuch.

Night before last I read a book called Paper Kisses about these 2 people that were in love during WW2 and kept writing love letters to each other for 4 years, even though they only got to see each other for like 13 days total. Part of the problem was he was a jew, and he cheated on her with an aryan women, who had a veneral disease, and then when he went to the dr he got arrested for having sex with her, and then went to jail for 3 years. Then he escaped Germany to Lithuania, and when things were getting worse he finally said okay ima just marry this otha bitch cuz shes closer, and then like a few months later he got killed by Nazis while riding his bicycle. I can assume he was going to look at this trilobite fossil cave because he was in love with them. The girl lived in the same apartment he had been writing to her whole life, and never got married. Not the most uplifting story, but it was true, and compiled by someone who bought the letters at an auction in 1995.

So yeah. I read. Yay for me.

Get to Work




I had such a cute office when I lived in Brentwood, TN. When the evening sun came in it was so beautiful, and I didn't even need curtains because outside was just grass and trees and the occasional nosy deer family. It will be so lovely just to have a desk and a chair again someday. .

Jim James






Seems I have a bit of a crush on him. . well deserved considering he is the front man in one of the best live bands I've ever seen- My Morning Jacket. (And not to brag but I've seen a few, and no one ever rocks my face off like they do) He is originally from Louisville, Ky- hence the Louisville is for Lovers event that sold out in 45 minutes this year! Damn. I lived in Nashville for 2 years but never went to Louisville- wish I had heard about this sooner since this year is the 10th. Way to go Yim, you cutie pie.

You can read some of his reccomendations here for best books. Goofy interview with the American Mustache Institute here,
Spinner interview here and of course the faithful youtube is available to satisfy all your video curiosities.
