Strange Dream

This was an extremely bizarre dream I had last night, and I’ve had some doozies.

I was attending a play at a wizarding university.

I sat with Harry Potter and Ginny.

Draco Malfoy was in the play.  He looked just like Tom Felton (this never happens in my imaginings of Draco), but he WAS Draco.  (He wasn’t Tom acting as Draco.)

The play was a musical re-enactment of the video game “Angry Birds”.  Draco was one of the triangular yellow birds. I don’t know who played the other birds, nor do I know who was dressed as the pigs.  I only had eyes for Draco.

At intermission, I went to the concession area and bought toy birds for Harry and Ginny’s kids, and for my own kids – except, my kids were actually my niece and nephew in this dream.

Draco was running the cash register, and when I came up to pay, he swooped me into a tight embrace and began to snog me senseless.  Apparently, we were an established couple, much to the chagrin of the taller, willowier fangirls standing nearby.

Just as the kiss ended my dang alarm went off.  Damn it!



Tarzan, the Ape Man (1981) (A Bo Derek atrocity)

Hubby and I watched this movie last night.  We should have just gone to bed.  It was horrible.  We fast-forwarded most of it to see “the good bits”.  He had the naked Bo Derek to ogle, and I had the almost-naked Miles O’Keeffe as Tarzan to check out.

What a gods-awful movie.  Richard Harris was deranged, Bo Derek was vacant and vapid, and Tarzan was pretty dang sissified, IMHO.

What clinched it for me, however, as a movie to hate forever, is that takes place in Africa, right?  Yet they used ASIAN elephants, not African, AND – Tarzan’s ape friends were two chimpanzees AND an orangutan – WHICH DOESN’T LIVE IN AFRICA!


Ahem.  Stupid movie.  IMDB rating is 3 out of 10.  I wish I’d looked that up first.  At least we saw it for free.  LOL


So this morning I gave in to a craving I’ve had for a while, and bought a Blueberry Waffle Breakfast Sandwich from the Dunkin Donuts that I pass on my way to work.

The first image below is the sandwich as it looks in the advertisements.

The second image below is the sandwich I received in reality.

I think the reason for the difference in appearance could be because I asked for “no cheese”.  What do you think?

This is what I actually got this morning

The Shadow Knows…

I shared this on Facebook, but not all of you are on FB, so I’ll share it here too.

This morning, at 5 a.m., 6-year-old R. bounces into our room, wide awake. I convince him to sit on the end of our bed with his DSi (volume off), as he wants to be with us and I didn’t want Mr. Wiggles IN the bed. He was happily hunched over his DSi, wrapped in a blankie.

A couple minutes later, I opened my eyes, in the still-dark room, to see his giant shadow cast on the ceiling by the DSi, and it looked EXACTLY like a huge, erect…


I had to stuff the pillow in my mouth I was (silently) laughing so hard. So was my hubby. He rolled over to give me a hug, then whispered, “Oh wait, my shadow’s caught,” and adjusted himself, which just made us laugh harder…

oh jeez. LOL


I just re-read my NC17-rated Dramione fic exchange offering as I was preparing my lunch here at work.  I wanted to see how well it flowed along, now that I’ve been away from it for a week or so.  I like it more and more as the story progresses and I ended up all hot and bothered.  I guess that’s a good sign.  LOL.

Is that silly?  Is that arrogant of me?

Leetspeak!  I never knew!  I love learning something new every day!  My brain just wrinkled.  Beats a new wrinkle on my face, any day…

Ah, the joys of getting older

So, I went to the gynecologist Thursday afternoon to discuss permanent sterilization options (because my husband has wimped out on the vasectomy route) and also to discuss some “intimacy pain” I’ve been having and other issues.

Long story short: I need to have a hysterectomy, due to several things having shifted out of place.  No WONDER I’ve been having pain.

The gyn, a woman whom I liked very much, said, “look on the bright side, this will take care of your sterilization needs…”

I feel extremely odd about the entire thing.  On one hand I’m relieved to know it isn’t all in my head, but on the other hand I’m sort of in mourning.  :/  On one foot, I’m glad I won’t have the responsibility of repopulating the Earth after the apocalypse comes, on the other foot, that means there is one less reason to keep me around; good thing I still have my brain and my winning personality and sense of humor.
