Author of the Queen City Boys books


Last night I dreamt I was in a car with my family and then we parked and everyone was out of the car but me. My mom started shouting and I couldn’t understand her. Then this guy got in the car and jacked it with me inside. I was turned sideways on the passenger seat trying to kick him and pushing against the door to get it open, but I couldn’t and he was laughing and indifferent entirely to my attempts to escape. Then the next thing, I was crawling into someone I knew’s work in the early morning sobbing. I kept trying to call 911 over and over again and I couldn’t get any response. Everyone in the place I was in was either ignoring me or acting like I was being overly dramatic. I finally got to the hospital and the doctors declared nothing wrong with me. The cops came and I literally couldn’t remember anything that happened to me to tell them. But I couldn’t stop feeling terrified. A few days passed and I started hearing whispering, talking to me about how I liked the dark better and it was only going to get worse. I realized, on the fifth day, when I’d been up all night and was watching the sunrise, that the sun would really seriously burn me. Then the carjacker guy came out of the shadows and I realized he’d turned me into a vampire. Then I woke up. So I didn’t even get to enjoy terrorizing people myself or doing anything sexy or crazy with my new powers. No just a long dream of terror and panic. Lovely, brain, thanks for that.

I had a rough night at work last night. Also I started my period. My back hurts. I’m just plain tired. Which I think is more hormones than lack of sleep. I’m just so ready for the weekend. Even though I have to work tonight. And tomorrow night. Still it’s the weekend! Yay! My current mental/emotional state is evidenced in that I was late for work and I couldn’t be bothered to do more than pull on a pair of jeans, plastic flip-flops and put my hair in a pony tail. I need a massage. And many, many naps.

Is there anyone, very artistically inclined, and perhaps bored, who would make me icons if I sent you a few pictures? I can do it, but I have no programs at work, and I always forget when I’m home.

  1. I’ve got PSP at work and can do it as long as they’re work safe. 🙂

    Whatcha want?

  2. Oooh! You’re awesome! Sending you pics via emails.

  3. That’s lame! How awful to only feel the terror and not any of the fun of being a vampire!

  4. I know, right? Isn’t the whole point that you get to have fun wreaking havoc? I never get to do the fun stuff anymore! Too much fun when we were young, maybe?

  5. Weird! It’s like we had the same but entirely different dream–I mean, the themes are the exact same. Bizarre.

    Is there anyone, very artistically inclined

    I read this as “autistically inclined”. Heh.

  6. I know! Maybe we’re both channeling stress and feeling stalked by something our daily lives? It was a way out of left field dream for me, even for a stress dream.

    I’m feeling a little autistically inclined today!

  7. *cackles* Yup, and now we don’t get to have fun at all. 🙂

  8. *offers you chocs and backrubs*
