I did not go near my computer today, and I got SO much done. Steli and JL, this is why people don't blog on the weekends.
On top of the usual laundry, I tidied my room, changed the bed, and vacuumed the carpet.
I must admit that I usually put off vacuuming for ages because it is so awkward to get the machine up the stairs that I'm pooped before I plug it in.
And then, today the bag was full. As I took it out of the closet I whined, "It gets heavier every time I need it!" and indeed, it barely sucked up enough...As soon as I got it back down the stairs, my landlord appeared and I told him about it, so he emptied it...I wasn't bothered to take it up and use it again!
I dreamt partly in German last night, even though I don't consciously know it. Subconsciously, yes, because my au pair was German and brought me over lots of children's tapes. So in the dream I was stringing together sentences and feeling proud of myself :P
Also, lately I've been dreaming I have been kissed by men I DO NOT like. What does this mean???
Last week, by a guy I talk to because I am obliged to, like how you have to talk to your housemates.
Then last night, I was kissed by ... *cringe* ... Jon Bon Jovi ... I thought I'd forgotten he even existed! But man, doesn't he have rather full lips. Bleugh.
To get your minds off that, I must also say that the night before the shuttle launch last week, I dreamt about the re-entry. I was concerned that NASA had given the all-clear, even though there was a 3 inch gap in the booster foam. Anyway, I hope the repairs they're working on are successful. Re-entry is soooo dangerous.
Once, when I was in my early 20s, back when I nearly worked at NASA, I had a dream: I remember the cabin shuddering under the weight and pressure and speed of take-off, and the "fire" caused by the friction of the shuttle through the atmosphere was visible through the windows.
That was a lot of dreams!
