Dream a Little Dream

Last night I dreamt I was back in Marching Band. I was in the colorguard and we were forced to march separately from the band in the parade. We all realized we were screwed when they started telling us about the judges area and we knew we wouldn't be able to hear the band playing.

Whoa, I didn't mean to go more than two weeks without posting! November has gone by so fast and 2006 feels like it's on fast forward. I was on vacation from work last week, so I took my niece down to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a day. We ate a newly open Greek restaurant called Konstantino's, where I had Greek Spaghetti. We also visted the Art Museum there and the Science Center, where we saw an Imax movie about the T-Rex. It gets dark so early now, it feels like midnight at 6pm when you are driving. But, the best way we found to pass the drive time was listening to Bill Cosby, Bill Engvall and Dane Cook's comedy routines on the radio (via my Ipod and an FM transmitter). My next car trip will involve at least a few new tracks.
I've also been doing homework for my Papermaking class. I made a small box that housed a person made out of beads for my last project and my current one is going to be a scrapbook/collaged thing that shows my distaste for partisan politics. It must be a commentary on a political, environmental or social issue.
I have to wait two more weeks before I can register for the chemistry class that I want to take. I still have to decide what my back-up class will be if I don't get into it.

Breast Cancer Anxiety

I had one of those dreams this morning that you think are 100% real, even a few seconds after you've woken up. In the dream, I was about to have a mastectomy and I was lying in the hospital bed. The only reason I was nervous was that I figured it would hurt, I didn't even care about the Cancer. My doctor told me that an intern would be operating on me. She whispers that since the intern is pregnant and can't sleep, she is at the hospital all the time. I don't know if I would call it a nightmare, but it did remind me of another dream I had that I was pregnant and going into labor. My thoughts in that dream were, "I am not ready for this. Maybe if I ignore it, it will go away."

I know for a fact that watching Grey's Anatomy seconds before going to sleep triggered this dream.
