i felt SO sick last night, and still feel pretty icky today – i think it’s either a sinus infection fo’ reals yo, or its me finally inheriting the most lovely PMS symptom that runs in my family: the migraine-sinus headache hybrid. either way, i went to bed earlyish (after turning the heels in elfine’s socks – most likely, pictures later).
and had another icky dream.
i dreamt yaymee still was in denver, and it was her last night before leaving for guinea. she and i were at her house with her mom (she lived with her mom in actuality), and i had clearly been out of town because her mom was watching ernie. at some point in the dream, yaymee’s mom turned into homer’s mom, yaymee disappeared, and it was homer’s house i was at.
(back in real life commentary) i am going to adopt ernie out to someone in the next few months – could be sooner if dream job comes through, as it’s overseas and i’m not going to do that to him. (back to dream) homer’s parents and brother agreed to keep him and were going to fix the fence in their yard. they were very happy as they had just put their dog, snickers, down and there had been a rash of burglaries in the neighborhood. (commentary: ernie is a GREAT guard dog. he will move heaven and earth to protect me. by move heaven and earth, i mean he will eat you)
then, i was suddenly in a classroom taking a general knowledge exam. it was set up like a jeopardy entrance exam, and i was doing poorly as most of the questions were about the nuts and bolts of major corporate scandals – which bore me to tears. as we were going over the answers, a girl in the front row kept asking the examiner to define certain words which had nothing to do with the exam. someone told me in the middle of the answer review that my dad was on the phone.
i thought, hey that’s weird my dad’s not alive, and got to the phone, and sure enough it was him. he was calling to tell me that my sister died during surgery, and that i needed to move home to be with my mom because she would be alone. i fainted.
then i woke up.
