Can You Tell I'm Running Low on Material?

I went to dreammoods.com, one of my all-time favorite websites, to try and figure out what my dream was about, the other night. Unfortunately, when I went to the animals section, “llama” was blatantly missing. So no hope of finding the meaning of miniature llama/catlike llama, anywhere. Now, I might have forgiven them, llamas not being a particularly common animal, but they had a definition for jackdaw and orca! I don’t even know what a jackdaw IS!

Fuckers.

On a totally unrelated note, I have hit another milestone in the tri-weekly torture that is my jogging routine. I passed my first NON-STATIONARY people, today! Of course, it was an extremely fit gay couple who were strolling along, and as soon as they decided to start jogging themselves a couple of minutes later, they quickly lapped me like was standing still, but still… for a brief moment, I felt the power of “ *heave* On your left!”

I rewarded myself with mocha on the way in to work this morning. I like to moderate my healthfulness.

Oh! And speaking of work, for those of you who were interested in what happened with DaG on her date (echo…echoecho…) I bit the bullet yesterday and asked her how it went.

“Oh, we didn’t really have chemistry. He didn’t have much to say.”

!

!!

Is it perhaps because you talktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalk and then pause to sniffle and wipe your tired eyes and then talktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalk some more without letting anyone get a word in edgewise? Maybe? Maybe?

Then she continued on for about ten minutes, telling me about a picnic in the park with a friend who’s a friend but not a friend and she brought some olives that were leftover from her birthday party, and oh, there were only about nine left, but whatever, he didn’t seem to mind, oh and she brought some crackers, too, and since there was wine they didn’t mind and the music was o.k. but not great and the really likes saxophone players well some of them but she didn’t get to meet the musician this time because she was talking (no shit) to this guy and they kind of had chemistry but she’s not sure and did she tell me she just (9 months ago) got out of a relationship and so she’s just taking things slow and not so sure that she’s ready to start up something again so soon and….

Then I poked my eyeballs out with a nearby paperclip.

Summary: apparently, her date was ho-hum. Aren't you so glad you asked?

DaG is that archetypical co-worker that we all avoid like the plague - but at least she provides opportunity to show your biting sarcasm that we have all come to love you for!

Still lol at the jackdaw, but not llama on the dream site. WTF?

Christie said...

How do you keep yourself from screaming "SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP" because that is what I would do after the first minute. Do you keep wine in your drawer to help you get through it?

Kanigget said...

Oh, you purposely searched out DaG? That's kind of like asking for it, now isn't it? Hmm, there's really no "kind of" about that one.

Google-Lily to the rescue....Here`s what Dream Dictionary has to say:

Llama
To see a llama in your dream, represents deep trust, strength and endurance. It may also mean that you are worrying too much and carrying too many problems.

Cat
To see a cat in your dream, signifies much misfortune, treachery, and bad luck. However, for the cat lover, cats signify an independent spirit, feminine sexuality, creativity, and power. If the cat is aggressive, then it suggests that you are having problems with the feminine aspect of yourself. To dream that you chase the cat away, signifies that you will overcome your obstacles. To see a white cat in your dream, denotes that you are going through difficult times. To see a black cat in your dream, indicates that you are experiencing some fear in using your psychic abilities and believing in your intuition. You may erroneously associate the black cat with evil, destruction, and bad luck.

....LOL, hope you find some deep meaning in that!

I'm relieved - as a single woman, I'd hang myself if that woman struck gold on a blind date for lunch

Hilarious post. Thanks for taking one for the team.

And, congrats with sticking and progressing with the jogging!

"I rewarded myself with mocha on the way in to work this morning. I like to moderate my healthfulness." I love it! Exactly what I would have done.

I bet DaG's blind date is happy he dodged that bullet!

Ham- Thanks. I am going to make more of an effort to avoid her, now, though. Must find something new to write about. Maybe llamas?

Christie- I do scream that in my head THE ENTIRE TIME she is talking at me. Someday it's going to leak out of my mouth, I know it. Brilliant idea on the wine, btw.

Kanigget- I know. *hanging head in shame.* I learned my lesson. I'm not going back.

Lilycurly- Sweet! You are my kind of girl. So let's see, I'm either panicking about my impending treachery, or feeling confident about my feminine wiles. So many options!!! Thanks!

Diane- Oh, we knew this one was doomed from the beginning. I am quite sure you will find someone before DaG does. Mostly because it sounds like you let other people talk once in a while. You have that working in your favor.

Mishy- See? I knew I liked you. We should take virtual coffee breaks, together.

hamiam said...

so uhm, going with lilycurly's info - I'd say your dream was about your deep trust in the Funasaurus merging with the prowess of your feminine sexuality - you are about to be married afterall, is that not what all modern brides dream of?

Princess in Galoshes said...

V- How did I miss you?!?? Sorry about that. You're welcome. I do not expect to voluntarily take one for the team again anytime soon, though.

And thanks for the jogging kudos, too. I hate it very, very much
