OK, sometimes I do have nightmares about monsters. Last night, I had a really brilliant combination nightmare, with almost all of my favorite themes. Bonus points for lucidity in bits. It's pretty rotten. )

I had a dream last night about trying to check into a hotel while approximately eleventy billion things were going on to distract me from said purpose. People were streaming in and out, we were in the wrong hotel, we couldn't find an ATM that worked to get the money, we were mistaken for other people, interesting discussions were going on in other rooms, goth girls were trying to talk us up to their hotel rooms, and somehow I had this skein of yarn that I felt that I had to learn how to crochet into a hat before anything else could happen.

This can only mean it's time to start this year's Dragon*Con cycle. Of course, we're still paying off last year's trip, but that's okay. We should be able to sort that out pretty quickly. And if we're clever, we'll get badges this month, while they're still $50 apiece. Our crew for the trip so far consists of myself, [livejournal.com profile] kittenpants, [livejournal.com profile] triadruid, Kittenpants' brother Gangly and cousin Goofy, but a few others have made rumbling noises about it and might be dragged along in our wake.
And then, there's costuming... )

It's probably too early to start getting excited about this, and yet, here I am. Anybody want to come with?

I meant to mention that I dreamed last night that I was directing a remake of Ed Wood's Bride of the Monster, starring several of our agency's consumers. (I work with an agency that provides residential support to developmentally disabled adults.) Even so, mine was better than the original.

Also, my Free Will horoscope for the week informs me that in golf, if your ball lands next to a live rattlesnake, you may move it anywhere you like without penalty. We sort of figure there's a similar "alligator rule", but that if it's an alligator, you just get another ball and take the shot over. I'm not sure where to go with this as advice for spiritual development, especially since it's a personal policy to keep my balls away from rattlesnakes as much as possible. But there you are.

Also also, [livejournal.com profile] orcjohn came over last night for the Annual Festival of Tax Letter Preparation, so if you happen to be a person who contributes money to Gaia Community, your tax documentation from us is forthcoming. He also brought a lasagna that [livejournal.com profile] opaljax made for us, which looks very yummy, and which could feed the three of us for a month or so. (Therefore, if you come to visit us in the next week, you can pretty much expect to be fed lasagna. Life is hard.)

Whiny goth post demands whiny goth icon. Sadly, I have no such icon, so poor William's troubles will have to suffice. This is your disclaimer.
In which my brain hates me. )

On the upside, I've managed to train Pandora to produce a pretty reliable mix of dark cabaret, pseudo-nostalgia tunes, and neofolk, which makes me happy. Instrumental in this development have been the folks over at [livejournal.com profile] sepiachord, who regularly post very yummy playlists. Also, I'm wearing a gift from [livejournal.com profile] zianuray, a very nice blend from Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs called Miskatonic University -- all coffee and irish cream and deep wood. It's delightful. I have some hope that I can shake my brain back into some sort of useful functionality by the end of the day. Let's find out.

I had a dream last night in which I was involved in a fortress/siege sort of game, possibly in the SCA. My team was constructing a fortress out of hay bales to defend against another team, who were the invaders. This was more fun than seems reasonable. I don't mind the 'beating people with sticks/getting beaten with sticks' aspects of play war, but the whole siege engineering thing, that seems so much more engaging. I spent a fair amount of the dream time trying to work out with a fellow who seemed to be the marshal whether simulated Greek fire would be legal in the battle. Good times.

Speaking of good times, [livejournal.com profile] wildnsquirrelly expressed some concern the other day about me, on the grounds that he didn't think I enjoyed anything or got excited about anything anymore. Now, I understand I've been a little stressed of late, but I didn't think I was stressed enough to not be any fun. If that's been true, I apologize.

Also, very soon, Bad Santa Flaunt 3 (Santa's Day Off). Drop me a note if you want to get in on the plans.
EDIT: Actually, if you want to get in on the plans, there will be a thread on [livejournal.com profile] flaunt_dev for that very purpose, and I invite you to come on over. Because that's like, what [livejournal.com profile] flaunt_dev is for.

Fun!

... or my brain is really stupid when left unattended for long periods of time. Last night's Weird Dream Theater ran an extended cut of stupid, in fact. Here's how it went down... )

So I was telling [livejournal.com profile] triadruid about this this morning, and he says to me, "Write that down -- you could develop that script, and the Sci-Fi Mansquito Channel would buy that. It's got everything - zombies, giant bugs, lesbian sex, everything!" And I'm thinking, even if they would, why would I want to be a party to that? No good, I say, no good. They'd have to pay me enough to keep me in angora for the rest of my life.

For the last two nights I have had dreams in which I am either Alfred, from the Batman comics, or a comics writer working on a Batman story in which Alfred figures prominently. In both dreams, Alfred is/I am trying to stop Robin from committing suicide. In the one where I was almost certainly Alfred, he had made several attempts at death by drowning. In the one where I might have been the writer, he was working on a pills and liquor combination.

And I say unto you, That Shit Is Not Right. Number one, it is not fair that I should have had that unlikely combination of elements twice in a row. Number two, I know the boy is classically depicted with no pants, and there are all the rumors and everything, but really, it's not worth offing yourself over. Just buy some pants and get a girlfriend.

EDIT: And, speaking of nightmares, woman goes in to the doctor for stomach pain, as it happens, she's about to give birth to a baby she didn't realize she was carrying. This sort of thing freaks me right the hell out. Perhaps today will be a good day to call a doctor to discuss getting fixed. I'm practically thirty, maybe I can find someone who will take pity on me this time. At 18, 21, 25, and 27, I was told I was too young and would no doubt change my mind, and was therefore a poor risk for the procedure.

Oh and.

Last night, we were working on identifying a patron for the Wild Hare Samhain ritual, and having some difficulty deciding who to ask for help... the deities that seem obvious for the work are not-so-good for the season and the time of day, and so on, which is the problem you have being polytheistic. Monotheists have it easy.

So I thought, well, I'll sleep on it, and see if anything useful surfaces from the subconscious. That actually does happen often enough to make it a reasonable course of action. Except really, not, this time. Or at least, I don't think so. Here's what I did get:

My apologies to jackbabalon23. )

Dreaming:
A lovely, tall, sharp-boned man with black hair that swings about his face has vital information for me. I've been following him for days, through parties and offices, barbershops and campgrounds, until Sunday, when I leave off to go to ritual. When I arrive, he's there, part of the day's team. His name is Michael, but I know he's a different angel. In the Fellowship hall, a rectangular labyrinth with a pattern reminiscent of a Greek key has been taped out on the floor. Inside the labyrinth are words. You can enter from four (or maybe eight?) different points, Michael explains, and the path you walk will give you the words you need. I'm delighted now, because this is the way he has set up to get me the information I need. The ritual begins. He hands me a card which is marked with the symbol for water, with an apostrophe -- water prime. I enter at the appropriate point of the labyrinth, dodging other walkers because the space is small. The words my path takes me past are these: "We could have stopped the war, all the wars, but we were not in time."

Awake:
I am not prepared for a day which will involve as many costume changes as today will. And yet, it is upon me. Sucking it up, as we speak.

Also, yesterday, I made rum balls. They are not [livejournal.com profile] breathofgold's rum balls, but they are damned tasty anyway. They're going to my second charity event of the weekend, the Kitchen Witch Bake Sale at Oracles of Aquarius tomorrow. You should come out and buy them.
