Monkey Wrench

Monday, October 12, 2009

Happy Monday!
Or is it?

Monday's are typically my favorite day of the week. Monday's are my day off. My day to get things done. My day to work on my writing.

But not today. I've been called into work and that just put's a monkey wrench in my routine.
I'm flexible. Right? Then why haven't I made it out of bed yet? Could be because it's 30 degrees out and I'm afraid I'll freeze if I leave the comfort of my blankets.

So I'm wondering if my disturbing dreams last night have anything to do with the fact that I have to work today. Crazy dreams. My daughter and I and some strangers were minding our own business, riding in our pioneer style wagon trying to find a McDonald's when all of a sudden enormous Raven's started attacking us. I shoved "Drama" to the floor of the wagon and told her to cover her head and then I started throwing ice cubes at the birds.

Moving on to the next dream. I have no idea where I was but I was trying to type this post only the keys on the keyboard were in another language. Take into consideration that I'm not a great typer and you see the problem. Then the lady at the hotel was trying to be helpful but she kept calling me by my daughter's name and I never corrected her. The actress, Lucy Liu entered my dream and asked me if I was comfortable with my weight. According to her, everyone at work had been talking about me and noticing that I'd put on a few pounds. I stuffed a danish in my mouth and rinsed it down with McDonald's coffee and told Lucy to mind her own damn business.

So...Happy Monday!

How's your Monday?

Barb, In Norse myth ravens are the messengers of the God Odin. Seeing that you were on your way to McDondalds the Ravens knew that Lucy Liu was going to pop up in your next dream to ask about your weight. The Ravens were just trying to warn you.

That's too stinkin' funny! I love it. Thanks for your insight.

A pioneer style wagon, huh? Oh, the image.

Not sure what's up with the weird dreams, although I like BJ's take on the ravens. :)

Sorry you got called into work. I know how much you love Mondays. Well.... except for this one.

I like BJ's take on the dreams too. :)

Maybe you're really living in the tv show Flash Forward and you just saw what you'll be doing in six months. You got a gig working a pioneer re-enactment but your daughter was hungry on the way to the fair so you decided to go to the drive-thru McDonald's. The Ravens were really crows (from Flash Forward) warning you to beware of Lucy Liu.

Maybe you should lay off the Hard Lemonades. Those are quite odd dreams. I saw some dream books at the book store this weekend and almost got one, but didn't. So I say we just go with what B.J. and Mary Stella said.
How's my Monday? It was a hard day at work, but I'm glad to be working so I won't complain.
Hope your evening is awesome!

Hi Tori,

I like BJ"s take too but I thought that Raven's symbolized impending death??? I'll have to check that out.

I love your take on this. I need to check out this show, FLASH FORWARD. Is Lucy Liu in the show? If she is and there are crows, maybe I saw a commercial or something and that triggered the dream. I'm off to Google that show.

I think the problem is I need more Hard Lemonades. Seriously!! I think I need to get one of those dream books. Although I don't know what I'd look up. Pioneers, Ravens, ice cubes or Lucy Liu. What a strange combination.

Awesomenous right back atcha!

The wagon cracked me up. It kinda reminded me of that hour long "jeep" ride we took recently!
