Mouse Dreams

Daddy, these are for you.

My program finishes in a week-and-a-half. After that, I have two weeks during which I get to hang around travelling and doing nothing in particular. And after that…

Let me just say that I hate airplanes. I don’t mind Madrid at all though, and the first thing I’m going to do when I get there is to go find Real Coffee with Real Cream. NOT Nescafé, and NOT powdered milk.

Then I’m going to fail to sleep due to my unfortunate inability to rest in any way while sitting upright. And then? I fully intend to be met with my mouse and a blanket. That is all I want. I don’t care about food or things-in-general, just the mouse.

Parents, I do hope you’re taking note of this.

I don’t really want to think about it yet.

On an unrelated subject, I’ve been having some very strange dreams. In one, my sister wrote a blog entry in which she stated that she planned to vote for McCain because he had “a lot of really good, pro-woman policies”. Right.

In another, I was in a taxi driven by a crazy white woman. Instead of dropping me off in SICAP Baobab, she left me on the road that leads to my old middle school and gave me my change in tiny coins that don’t exist.

Finally, this is the weirdest one of all. I was in a bead shop with Moom and Amanda, when suddenly I turned into Harry Potter. I was on my way to meet Voldemort in the Ministry of Magic, and somehow ended up hiding in a broom closet with Marietta from book five and (quite unrelatedly) my friend’s ex-girlfriend whom I haven’t seen in years.

Knitting update soon!!

    I’ve found that when I am stressed out in Spain, I have the weirdest dreams I’ve ever had in my life. It’s odd…something about not being “home,” or at least some place permanant, gives me dreams like I’m taking malaria pills- maybe that’s it! Are you still doing the anti-malarials?

    just make sure that you include certain vocabulary words in this particular expliot. namely…”tactful”, “reasonable”, and “un-frumpy”. maybe even “useful”…
