Does this mean ANYTHING?

So, I had this dream where I was doing the lights for a play. Mark Twain, who was a young 20something was directing. The whole night I was doing the lighting I was all kinds of freaked out b/c MT himself was just meters away.

So at the end of the show I find him outside the sound booth and struggle to tell him that I loved Tom Sawyer. I lose my words and embrace him, despite him not wearing pants. He then gets a call on his cell phone from his son, Michael Twain.

I go into the theater to strike the set, and find it empty and immaculate. I turn to the house and see that it is very small, and the seats are littered with moldy LPs and cobwebs. Mark Twain speaks to me via an old phonograph and tells me to turn on a television set in the back of the house. I feel slightly panicky but have a need to do what he tells me (hey, if one of the greatest writers told you to switch on the tube, would you?). I climb up the rows of crumbling seats (everything seems old and crumbly) and select a record to put on the record player that is hooked up to the tv screen, then turn it on.

It's Albert Einstein delivering a lecture on relativity, in the nude. I watch, rapt, and towards the end the camera zooms in on Al's genitals, which were androgynous, before zooming up to his face and refocusing on the lecture.


At least it's better than my evolution dreams. Dreaming in chemistry I can understand. In French, alright. But in evolutionary biology?


In other news, as Monday, it is the last day of spring break. I can't decide if I'm relieved b/c it was such crap, or if I'm going to lobby for a retake or at least a refund.


In further, more irrelevant news that panders to my apparent need to procrastinate and disappoint the ones I love, I just got done watching some foreign films I rented from The Flicks, which is perhaps the greatest establishment to have graced the face of ID since the Egyptian. Screening all the left of center films you could want in any language, serving alcohol and real food that doesn't cost a fortune, and featuring a rental room in the back with all the campy, cult, old, foreign, or just plain random films you could want, it is my slice of heaven. And I rented The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Farinelli. Both were amazing in their own way. It is hard to believe that The Cabinet is nearly a century old.


In still further removed news, WTF?

I call my best friend and tell him that I'm depressed and in need of distraction. He gives me five amines of find structure drawings of, solubility research, and a load of questions about the chemistry of lidocaine. All this he needs for his OrgChem test by the end of break, which is Tuesday.



It's raining.

What an ironic sound.

i had a dream where i was naked the other night. and that we had servants at my house. and that it was snowing.
but you get today off? NO FAIR!
but break might have been too long as it was. i would have accepted taking the last two or three days and spreading them out through the next couple months. we only have three more days off, including the half days for frosh testing that i plan to skip (they have stuff for junionrs. im just not going to do it. possibly go to the beach).

Go to the beach?


At least you have a beach around. I'm beachless.

Everyone is naked in my dreams.

Everyone is naked? that is frightening... and I love the Cabinet of Doctor Caligari. Its great. I had to watch it when I took film as literature in 11th grade. One of the only good movies I have ever had to watch in that class.

Including Orchestra Johnson and the Quaker Oat Man.

Seriously though, in almost every dream people are not wearing clothes.

Oh, Film as Lit. That sounds like an awesome class. If I wasn't already up to 8 classes and possibly having to take a few online, I'd sign up.

Caligari is a creeper. So is the somnambulist.

you have to take these classes online? or is it just a need to be top nerd? =]

and prom is off by 5 days of our anniversary, and considering we probably won't see each other on the 23rd, let's just go with prom. would you like that thingy I made you last year?

And most of my friends know where we met. >.<
the order of questions:
1. are you really a lesbian?
2. no, seriously, are you really?
3. do you have a gf?
4. how did you meet her?
so you see, they all know, but have probably forgotten. Wes will be there, though. and a couple of my other fave teachers that are excited to meet you. =P

loves yew!
