Good Things Friday - Late Edition

I am having crazy dreams
About midgets
And spinning houses
Not at all Wizard of Ozzy
Although it does feel like I'm not in Kansas any more lately
Good things are happening
But not fast enough
And it's stressing me a bit
Which is prolly why I'm fighting a virus this week
I'm wearing very comfy cargo pants from Target
And my favorite hoodie from the Grand Wailea
This hoodie from Snorg Tees
Made me laugh out loud just now
Which I found from Googling how to spell "hoodie"
So here's a crazy story that is not at all related to the current primary craziness:
I work for a company that builds e-commerce sites
My favorite cousin Chris has disowned the entire family
No one really knows or understands why
But he hasn't spoken to any of us for going on three years now
And when Da had surgery two weeks ago, Chris' mom (my aunt, Da's sister)
Was there with us at the hospital and we talked about it
I know Chris was close with his brothers and sisters
But we've always been super-duper-pooper close
So Aunt Sheri and I are probably the people most hurt by this strange turn of events
It was a good talk
Flash forward to the Sunday following Da's surgery (four days later)
I'm poking around in, our company database, looking at recent activity
Via a new Twitter-like feature called Chatter
And there's my cousin's wife
In our fucking database
Working for a potential client
With whom we've been meeting for three weeks
To possibly do their web site project
Get this
She was scheduled to visit our office the next day
It was pretty crazy, seeing Chris' wife in my office
And by the look on her face, she was surprised to see me too
I should mention they live in Michigan, last time we heard
And I live in Illinois
I will not editorialize on the 20 minute conversation we had
At her request
After the meeting
[Writing, struggling, writing, deleting, struggling, finally choosing to not say anything]
It appears we've won the business
For now
It is interesting how the Universe works, though, isn't it?
On the phone with Mudder right now
Everybody's doing great

I am listening to: Mudder
I am reading: Not much
And I am: A little sleepy

Midget rapist

"I had a dream I was attacked by a midget rapist."

"Midget isn't correct, they're called little people now."

"He was a rapist. Little people don't rape. Midgets rape."
I am listening to: Stairway to Heaven
I am reading: Not much
And I am: Having some freaky dreams lately

Good Things Friday - Crazy Edition

The Universe has thrown me a bit of curveball
And as of this moment it's heading out of the park
But we'll see
Nothing is certain yet
Gromit, barking at his big pile of barf in the yard
Wednesday night
To let me know he'd been sick
Classic, amazing, smarty pants dog
Jim's garden is bursting with tomatoes
I found the perfect color nail polish
It's by Ulta and it's called Lavendering or something
It's an awesome purple
I am watching The Devil Wears Prada
There is an amazing thunder storm outside
Jim comes home from Australia tomorrow
I miss him
But it's been a pretty good week
A slower pace than usual
The Pillars of the Earth mini series was pretty good
The main character - Tom the Builder - was weak
But otherwise worth watching
Mrs. You Know Who came to get tomatoes today
And checked on Grommie for me
And brought me an awesome yummy dinner
I am unbelievably blessed
I am listening to: Rainy night
I am reading: Outlander - Book II
And I am: A little crazy
