spidery coffee and dreams

A couple minutes ago, I was pouring myself a cup of coffee. Then I saw a spider floating in it. Bleah! It was one of those little yellowish green things I've been complaining about of late. I felt bad for it. And, for a brief moment, I considered drinking the coffee anyway. But in the end, I just couldn't do it. So now I'm making a new (spider free!) pot of coffee. Now that I'm thinking about it, the spider must have been fine when I started the coffee. He must have just been in the empty pot. Then he got drowned in hot coffee. How terrible!

Last night in my dream I was in a place that was maybe supposed to be a school but maybe not. There was another part where it was more like a department store and I was going to try on this outfit. But the dressing rooms were bathroom stalls and they were all gross. In a later part, the part that I think the place was a college, I was trying to get from one side of a doorway (I want to say it was an elevator but I wasn't trying to get in it or down or anything, just from one side to the other) but the place had all these snakes and dirt and leaves and I was trying to find the best way to just run and jump across. I must have chosen wrong, because when I jumped across, a large snake jumped (?) up and bit my thumb. Then I was worried that it was a poisonous snake and I was trying to call the hospital and the girl who answered the phone was laughing at me. I was trying to convince her that no! really! this is serious business! I could die!!! But she was not taking me seriously at all.

I suspect the snakes may have come from Todd catching a snake the other day. He had it in a container but I didn't get to see because it escaped. Too bad. I like snakes and would have liked to get a few pictures. But not too bad because, poor snake all cooped up in a plastic bin!

Ok tine to try again with the coffee.

text exchange with sgfaboo

A text exchange between Steve and I this morning. I left him a note about the spidery coffee.

S: Just saw your note. GROSS.
Me: Word. And poor spider!
S: A tough way to go. Lost a grandma like that.
Me: What a disturbing mental image!
S: Haunts me to this day.

sleepy timeand shower time, but first an update

It was cold today. Pretty, but cold. I picked up Mikale from school. Of course today when I plan to go straight to grandma's he decides we need to stop at his house first. I am mean so we did not stop. He told me so even. And then I reminded him how mean I was. To make sure that I had nothing else to do today but spend time with him at grandmas. He had to admit, that yes, that was kinda nice.

Poor Mikale got stung by a wasp at g-ma's. They keep sneaking into the house. It was a big sucker. I got a glass and took it outside. My grandma told me to squish it. I did not.

I took some pictures of Mikale. From what I could tell in camera, which is sadly often quite misleading, I have some lovely shots. I have taken probably 2000 pictures this month. It is going to take me a gazillion years to get caught up on pictures. It would help if I could do it better here but I cannot. Someone buy me an imac!

I'm about to have vegetable-y chicken soup. Then it is time to shower and go to bed. I got a sleep mask and I'm glad I did. I go to bed when it's still light out. The mask helps.

Also, a Mikale-ism:

him: I have managed to go 2 years without pooping at school.
me: That's quite an accomplishment! How come?
him: Because I don't want to wipe my butt!
