The Dreaming

Man, I've been having the weirdest dreams lately. Vivid ones, too. This one I had last night lasted for what seemed like hours. Even after I woke up I couldn't quite shake it and kept living its reality in subsequent dreams after falling asleep again. I actually didn't sleep much last night (or this whole week, actually) at all and I usually don't have those completely immersive dreams when that's the case, but last night was an exception. I'd describe it here, but it would take pages to describe and wouldn't really make much sense.

Easter Eggs

This picture illustrates the dangers of having family get-togethers before noon on a weekend. It was taken on Easter Sunday last weekend at around 9 or 10 in the morning. I think my niece and I pretty much remained in these positions throughout breakfast. Replace the background with church pews and I'm sure this is how I looked at Easter service about 90 minutes later.

Oh, and it's hard to appreciate the length from this shot, but I'm wearing the birthday scarf my sister Xinda knitted for me.

Strange-but-true fact: the scarf took this picture after the inhibitor chip controlling it was accidentally destroyed.

James is Missing

Tune in to Without a Trace tonight at 10pm on CBS to see James Snyder as a "...young blueblood who went missing from the inner city shelter for indigent women where he volunteered as part of his sentence for drug possession." James is a great guy and a great actor who deserves your time, money and respect. He's also just damn cool. "How cool?" you may ask. He lent me his PSP (with GTA:Liberty Stories & X-Men Legends II, among others) for the past couple months so I could try before buying. That's how cool. Not cool enough for you? He played Luke Skywalker in Star Wars in 30 Minutes, bitch.

Stretch Panic For Real

Okay, so the "fuzzy present" of a couple posts back turned out to be an awesome scarf knitted by my sister Linda and not an illegal ferret smuggled out of New Mexico. The scarf is an amazing thing to behold – custardy brown, velvety soft and seriously long. I mean, I can wrap it around my neck several times and the ends still touch the ground. In case of fire, I could use it to rappel down from my apartment's balcony. Using it to cross chasms a la Raiders of the Lost Ark would be a given. Come to think of it, in terms of "massively useful things" it could be the new towel.

Oh, and here's a picture of Linda doing her impression of the Guy Fawkes mask from
V for Vendetta:

Frustration x 3

It's been difficult to blog/webmail/comment for the past couple of weeks here at work due to my IE browser submitting everything three times, as anyone who has gotten a message from me recently can attest to. I tried changing browsers, but Firefox is summarily rejected by the company mainframe. Very frustrating.
