My bags are packed and I’m ready to go (the taxi’s waiting outside the door, I hate to wake you up to say goodbye) [sorry, don’t know what came over me there, but the words just seemed to type themselves] anyway, while I wait for my ride I will share this with you:

I rarely, if ever, remember my dreams, but last night’s was plain odd. I dreamed that I was sitting in a backyard with a bunch of people that I knew (but didn’t really know, except for in that dream) and Maggie was with me and so were a lot of other dogs and they were all running around having a great time together and then this other animal appeared in the yard (which was actually sand surrounded by choir-roster-like stacked levels of grass that we were all sitting on) and this other animal appeared to be a cross between a weasle, a muskrat, a fox and a groundhog. Anyway, it was running around the yard, burrowing in the sand and grass, the dogs were chasing it and you could see the progress of this animal as it was burrowing. It was a very action-packed sequence. And then I noticed that this animal had disturbed a bees’ nest or wasps’ nest that was in gthe sand in the middle of the yard and the nest was now spitting out wasps/bees in the manner of an automatic tennis ball shooter thing and no one beleived me and then I got stung a few times, but slowly as the bees/wasps weren’t swarming, they were coming out one by one. I could actually feel the darn things stinging me.

When I woke up this morning, my thumb joint was all itchy and I realized that it is covered in bits. Yikes!!!! I haven’t seen a mosquito all summer in my house so it can only mean one thing:

I WAS BITTEN REPEATEDLY BY A BIG-ASS HAIRY SPIDER LAST NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, off to my 36 hour holiday now ….
