Dreams of Doom

So last night I was exhausted. I had a long day at work (in a good way), and then had a great dinner with Jeremy, my boss Tom, and his wife Kacy. After dinner Jeremy and I went back to our hotel and I went straight to bed. And then this happened.

Dream 1: I am playing Zelda: Twilight Princess and am trying to buy potion from Trill (the bird) before the Monkey Temple. I ended up accidentally stealing it (you know what I mean if you've played the game) and he came after me squawking.

Dream 2: I accidentally dropped and broke almost all the glass stuff in my home

Dream 3: I had a lucid dream within-a-dream in which I had a premonition that our neighborhood and surrounding areas were sporadically burning. We and others were racing to get to our homes and get our pets, valuables, etc. Then we raced to the store to take water and things and we had to fight zombies to get it. Of course. But then my mind created Daryl and several others from The Walking Dead and they helped us. Then I had another premonition that just as things looked hopeless, the wind would die down and the flames would go out, and my mind made that happen too. So then we just had to deal with zombies. No big.

Dream 4: Involved Christmas, Muppets, fighting with my sister over some random thing, That's all I can piece together. Strange.

Dream 5: Yesterday on Twitter I mentioned the Max Rebo Band from Star Wars. Don't know who I'm talking about? These guys:

Anyway I dreamed that after I posted the comment, I was instantly trolled by other tweeters who claimed that the band was never called that. That only fake geeks thought that. That the Max Rebo Band was actually a cave in Jabba's palace and the band had no name and losers thought that the band was called Max Rebo Band. I remember waking up at this point and trying to check my phone to look on Twitter and delete the comment but I was still too deep in my dream to do anything about it.

I'll add more if I remember more. Anyway, I needed to share this before I forgot. Where's my kitty? I need to cuddle.

  1. Wow and I thought I was the only one who had lucid dreams. I have them every night. I take an anti-depressant and it wears off in the wee hours of the morning when REM sleep kicks in. Leads to some rather intense dreams.

Mom of the Year

Before I write this blog post, I want to say a few things. By its nature, this post is exclusive. It is about one thing and not about other things. But it is not meant to say that one thing is better than another. It's just not about all those things.

All of us who are parents are doing the best we can. I respect and admire those who choose to stay home with their little ones full-time. You're doing hard work, and it's a great thing. 

I see a lot of posts from parents who stay home with their children talking about how they love it and it's the best thing. They can't imagine not doing that. Wonderful! I see posts that get shared that extol staying home full-time with your children. That's great, too. 

But this post is specifically for the mom who works full-time outside the home. I don't see much for those of us who do that, so this is for us. I know "working mom" is a bit of a misnomer since all moms are working moms, but for clarity's sake, tha…

Being Fully Present and Other Things

I haven't blogged here in a long time. Why? Well, a couple of reasons. One, I have been busy and tired. Like, more tired than I think I've ever been. Not an "I stayed up too late" kind of tired but an ongoing state of being low on fuel kind of tired. Not that I'm complaining. On the contrary, I have more joy than ever. But, you know, the kind of joy that's messy and tired and running around like a crazy person... that kind of joy! =)  Here's my stream-of-consciousness update of what's been going on.

We recently welcomed our second little one to the family: Sebastian Kai. Sebastian is a name we've always liked, and "Bastian" is the main character from The Neverending Story. Also, "Bast" is my favorite character from The Kingkiller Chronicles (he's a fae, and he's -- forgive my language -- badass). Alice and Sebastian -- both our kids have literary first names. Kai is also a name from a book series we both love (The Blood…

The Time I Failed at Interviewing at CNN

After college, like just about every college grad, I was looking for work. I had worked during school breaks at WebMD for a few years and had a little other work experience as an office assistant. My first task was to ask WebMD if there was a full-time position. There wasn't. They didn't hire new grads anyway. But they did have a little freelance work I could take on while I job hunted, so I gladly took the offer.

I thought to myself, I bet the WebMD brand would at least get me some phone calls, so I applied everywhere I could think of that seemed relevant: American Cancer Society, Children's Hospital, even the CDC. And I got the phone calls, but they all wanted more experience. Sigh.

Then a coworker at WebMD mentioned that CNN hired "VJ"s right out of college, and that was how she got started. A VJ, or video journalist, is an entry-level position, but it's in really high demand, so you really have to be impressive to get in. I was told the first six months t…
