I caught some kind of flu bug; my stomach is upset and I can't sleep for more than a few minutes at a time. And I've been having some really weird dreams.
On the rare occasions I remember dreams, they're long rambling messes that seem to go on for hours and seldom make any sense, like channeling some unknown Quentin Tarantino movie. This last one was extremely vivid and quite short.
I was working the night shift somewhere. No idea where or what I was doing; the dream started when I was digging my lunch out of the refrigerator in the cafeteria. A couple of people said hello, or welcome back - they were all people I'd worked with before, on different jobs in real life. Apparently we'd all been laid off and recently called back to work.
So I'm sitting in the cafeteria eating my sandwich, and there's a TV tuned to a moldy-oldy rock video channel. Sammy Hagar is doing a song that sounds vaguely like Crosby, Stills, & Nash's "Southern Cross", except the refrain is "D T M." I kind of liked it.
Some VJ that looked like Bob Barker came on and blithered something for a minute, and then started playing Elvis Presley's cover of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" from his 1979 Comeback Tour. That was weird enough to wake me up; I couldn't remember when that song came out. 1980? 1981? It bugged me enough I got up, turned on the computer, and looked it up. It was from "Cheap Trick at Budokan" in 1978. Brrr...
"Mother told me
yes she told me
I'd meet girls like you.
She also told me
you never know what you'll get!'"
Heh. Being sick really sucks. I got whatever's been knocking people down a few weeks ago. fever, chills, flu like. Apperently during the worst of it, i was in bed, telling my wife i didnt have the "proper attire on to be attending this event in the outdoors, and wanted to go inside and go to bed" ...while still in bed, . whatever the hell that meant.
Get well soon.
