Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day!



This morning I had a dream that something was coming, some awful and dangerous natural disaster, like a hurricane or tornado.  I went to/was already at 508, but when I went inside the house it was FILLED with people, like 100 people, and I thought, why are you guys here?  Most of them weren't even people I knew, they were people from like . . town.  Which makes sense in a movie context, but not a real-life context where Mitch and Neil et al are not terribly involved in their small-town community.

There was a small grove of trees out back and even though there were a hundred people there, only I (and later Culann and his brother Chad) were helping Mitch to prepare it.  I thought that we should figure out a way to cut the trees down at breast-height (they were only about 6"-8" in diameter), but he kept painting them a tan, almost flesh color (oops, I'm a racist).  Light tannish pink.  And I wasn't sure what help that would be in a storm, to have your trees be painted, but he was very grumpy about how no one else was helping so I didn't say anything.

I'm not going to be able to go to WingBowl.  It is going to be the biggest and best pep rally ever!  But there is too much to do at work.  Maaaan.

There's a station on the Internet Radio of WinAmp called Starbase 479.  Mitch gave me the heads-up about it:  they play audio books of Star Trek books (sort of ugh) and Star Wars books (slightly less ugh) and other sci fi books (more interesting) and BBC sci fi radio shows (even a little more interesting) and sometimes in the afternoon they play the audio of Star Trek episodes (totally freaking awesome), but this morning they are playing the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy radio shows and I am really excited about this!!  I've never heard them before.  This is the best ever.

Okay, so I'm still at work, right?  It's late and I'm all alone only I don't think I'm all alone!!  I think there is a mouse or something up there!  I can hear something scrabbling on the ceiling tiles!  Ahhhh!  I don't mind mice, it is too easy to pretend that they are pets and not pests, but this whispery scrabbling is sort of freaking me out!  Yeek!  I think I should go home soon, even though I didn't get done all I wanted to.  Besides, I'm hungry.

Eeee mouse!  Oh man what is THAT noise by the door??  I need to get out of here, I am too squirrelly to be in a building all by myself . . .

P.S.  I really need to get these stupid Santa hats off of Kirk!  But work has been so busy.
