In Your Dreams-

Mike was writing about dreams the other day, so I thought I'd post this, because it is just a little weird. Not Twilight Zone weird, but just a bit "oh, that's odd" weird.

Last night I had a very vivid dream about an owl flying against our kitchen window, banging it, flying against it again and again, trying to get in.

This morning while I was fixing my tea around 6:30, I heard a bumping at the kitchen widow and there's a big old robin flying against the glass, hopping back to a branch on the Japanese maple just outside, and then hurling himself against the window again and again. I've never had a dream like that before, and never seen a bird attack his image in the glass before, in person.

Well, I'm not overly superstitious, but on the other hand I'm also not a complete fool, and I know a Sign when I get one.

Today when I go out, I'm wearing my hat.

Interesting items from today's news-

Hey folks, I know he's the Attorney General, but you all make it sound like you think everything he says actually has to be true...

It looks as if The Evil Empire may actually be on the rocks. Could it be that we will not all be assimilated?

I know, I know, torture is bad, but look at it this way- if McCain picks Condi Rice to be his running mate, and they get elected, the transition from Evil Dik to Evil Condi will be seamless.

We had a bird who was obsessed with our bedroom window last year. She'd fly from the cedar tree in the back yard, flap against the window a few times, rest on the roof, then fly at the window again. When she was good and tired (or sore - it was hard to tell) she'd fly back to the cedar.

I'm waiting to see if she comes back this spring. That bedroom belongs to the girls now - I hope she doesn't scare them if she DOES come back (she usually started her attacks around 4:30 in the morning...)

You drink tea in the morning? That robin was trying to chase off another horny male in my guesstimation.

Owls seem very portentous. Robins, they just seem like creatures with very tiny brains.

Rather like our presidork.

As for Mukasey, he's just being logical. See, the Mukasey doctrine is that the president cannot commit a crime because if the president authorizes it, it's automatically legal. The natural extension of that is that the president wants something to be true, then it's true. Regardless of those little details like "facts."

Facts are for little people.

Mukasey's remark needs to be all over the news channels. At home today and haven't heard a word about it until I read the link. Did hear something on CNN that Linsey Lohan will go naked in her new movie. Just get all warm and fuzzy at times with modern journalism.

Been hearing the talk about Condi as VP. I have to admit that she gives me slightly less of a sick feeling in my stomach than old Mitt Romney who appears to be trying to suck McCain's intestines out.

Mrs. Chili: I love noisy birds that get up earlier than I do.

HungryMo: Yes, tea, never coffee. I guess that's what he's about too- he's been banging away, feet first, at two or three windows in that corner all morning. Thump ... thump ... thump ... thump...

Phoebe: You're right, of course, I keep backslinding into that silly old fact-based thinking. I need to be re-edumacated again.

BB: "Mitt Romney who appears to be trying to suck McCain's intestines out"

Somebody asked me the other day to give an example of a mental image that not even a sand-blaster could eradicate. Thank you, you've given me the perfect one...

Twenty years ago when I was living up one of the Utah canyons with a man, we awoke one morning early to here that odd sound you have described. Bam, then a moment of silence, then bam again, and the same thing over and over. It turned out to be a Lazuli Bunting. It bashed into the bedroom window just above our bed until it finally broke it's neck. Now if you have never seen a Lazuli Bunting it's an extraordinarily beautiful bird. Turquoise, wing, and tail, golden throat, white belly. I had no idea such an exotic bird inhabitted our harsh and wintery terrain, but it was Spring and then, without a doubt was this gorgeous bird. I put it's lifeless body in a plastic ziplock and then plopped it into the freezer--god knows why. Maybe because it was so pretty I couldn't bear to just throw it away. Then I call the Aviary at Liberty Park. Turns out this particular Bunting is endangered, rare indeed. When I asked about it's strange behavior, I was told it probably saw it's reflection in the window and thinking it had a rival was repeatedly attacking the rival and the rival won.

As to Condi or Mitt. I'm rooting for Condi. One of the principals of the Evil Empire we have become thanks in no small part to her gutlessness and lack of integrity. Mormons will vote for McCain if Mitt's on the ticket. That secures several western states that might be in play, but Condi doesn't help in any way I can think of. So let's all root for Condi.

i dont remember exactly what my dream was last night, BUT i do remember that Prince's "raspberry beret" (yes, the kind you find in a second hand store) was playing throughout the dream.

FOUR DINNERS said...

I dreamt I was shagging Kylie Minogue and much to my annoyance it was indeed a dream.

Bloody alarm went off before I'd done n all.

Life's a bitch eh? ;-)

Last night I had a sex dream. That's nothing unusual for me. The problem was the sex dream involved CockMaster. What the hell? What's the point of dreams if you are having sex with someone you have sex with in real life?

Suicidal birds . . . good Dear Malach question

Thomas said...

McCain isn't a complete asshat in my book, but damn, Rice as VP? Add that to the "Carl Rove has been hired by the McCain campaign" rumors and he is working himself into a shit storm of evil and hate.

I HATE Clinton, but would vote for her long before I would vote for a McCain tainted by Rice and/or Rove.

All I need now is a secret Obama sex video and my mind is made up. McCain Can't beat that, he is too old and wrinkly.

Bring on the night vision and Obama and the girls to win the election

Colonel Colonel said...

Utah: You're probably right, but I think the new story about her planning torture will kill her chances of running with McCain.

T-Bird: You had a dream with a Prince soundtrack- I'm not going to delve further into what it might have been about...

Dinners: First thing we do, let's kill all the alarm clocks.

C.Rag: Damn those hormones!

Malach: I will get right on it!

Thomas: Oh My God- be careful what you wish for.

Joey Polanski said...

WHEW!

I thougt you was gonna tell us you done had anothr dream about Burt Ward in tights.

Colonel Colonel said...

Joey: No, the shock treatments seem to have stopped those.

AngryMan said...

I really can't see the advantage from putting Condi on the ticket. I mean, how can McCain distance himself from Bush if he picks one of his biggest lackies who has been in all eight years of this shitty administration?

C.Rag said...

Your Batman & Robin pic reminded me of the pic I came across.

pissed off patricia said...

Condi has said she isn't interested but I bet if asked she would jump at the chance. If she did, would she have a new "husband"? Could she and bush break up?
