I thought I skipped a day...

That's odd. I thought I didn't blog yesterday. So who did??? I am two people now?

So today: mind-numbing research. Not one phone call or email from anyone. I mean, no one. Nobody. Not. At. All. Not even that promising arts job, so I will call tomorrow.

After the research, picked up my phone which had been on order. I see it as a bit of a consolation prize. Seeing as we're set for the coldest winter in 40 years, I picked up a quilted coat, since even last year I could have done with one, especially when it snowed.

Had comforting junk food at a diner: that is, hot dogs and onion rings. The 50s music on the jukebox may have been jaunty but the words were actually depressing. However, some British stuff came on before I left and I actually sang along with Lily the Pink. If you grew up here, you might have learned it at school.
Chorus: We'll drink a-drink a-drink to Lily the Pink the pink the pink
The saviour of the human ra-a-ace
For she invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case

Verse: Mr Mears had sticky-out ears
And it made him rather shy-y-y
So they gave him medicinal compound
Now he's learning how to fly
The rest of the verses have to do with embarrassing conditions that were made worse thanks to Medicinal Compound, like the guy with a stutter who couldn't say a word is now seen but never heard and the skinny priest who didn't eat his meals is now moved around on wheels.

Then I went to Yoga. I love it! She complemented me afterwards: "You have a great back!" Finally, an exercise that I can get into. I definitely can see that if I were to skip a class, I'd be upset.

That plane crash dream has stayed with me for 3 days. I rarely have nightmares, and this one is so stuck with me right now, I did a little research (my forte, eh) on dream interpretation and symbolism.

This is what various sources stated:
  • Planes, like all other vehicles, symbolise a portion of your life's journey, especially as related to career and relationships.
  • The fact that you survived unhurt indicates that it is merely symbolic. It signifies a feeling of incompetence and inadequacy.
  • Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.
  • That which you had set a goal to achieve may now come crashing down.
  • To dream of being in this event indicates a dramatic negative change in your life.
Spot on.

Tut. Anyone know any jokes?

Oh, and I will post pics from the twins' party if I can finish the roll and get it developed.

Actually I think it's funny. It got a giggle out of me.

Darling Olivia, I don't know any jokes that are fit to tell in polite society.

I shall limit myself to hugging you.
