Dream Weaver

Last night I had a dream. It was a longish dream. I was on an island coast, or next to the ocean. There were many of us. Half of the fight was in my front yard at home and the other half was on the coast. It was a cool fight. It was a war between lots of early 20's aged youths. Weirdest part was it was like a giant zone conference on my mission. 

So all of us were warring, but our weapons were straws. We inserted mini pencils made out of paper into the straws and blew them out like dart guns. At the end of all the fighting, we had a banquet. There were lots of cakes and cookies on tables. It looked like a wedding reception setup. There were nuts sprinkled on all the cakes and the cookies were all bland looking and unappetizing.

Even though we had a war, we were all very chummy at the reception. We also walked down a sidewalk that had a bunch of mangoes, peaches, or tomatoes fallen from a tree. I couldn't tell what they were, but they transformed a bit as I was trying to figure them out. I believe I realized they were tomatoes growing in the tree, which means they were probably just persimmons. 

I told the person walking with me it was a waste to have such a lovely fruit tree unappreciated- nobody was eating or gathering the fruit. In all fairness, the tree was on a sidewalk by the street, but the fruit was abundant and the fallen fruit had the coloring of peaches and looked delicious. 

We ate vegan food for lunch at work. Nobody really wanted to eat vegan, but I said it would be ok. I was wrong. It was gross. No more bbq tofu for me. Unfortunately all the people  who got other food were right. Not my fav. I'm just trying to widen your horizons people. The sun is shining hard in veganland. And it hurts my eyes. 

Also, our PG&E was like triple the norm this month. We realized that turning off the heat when we left the house increased our bill by a mil. So we looked at the stat and realized, instead of turning it back to Heat Auto, we just put it on heat. So we blasted the heat when we got home instead of just putting it to auto. Stupid expensive mistake. Not cool thermostat. Not cool.

Merilee, I just love your stories and your sense of humor!
Also PG&E is not cool, pretty much all of the time. I'm pretty sure we've tried to pay our bill for the last three months and they're still telling us we haven't paid and that we are gas-stealing gypsy scum. Or something like that.
