It's strange.  I don't feel all that nervous about starting my new job tomorrow, but I've already had my stupid stress dream where I'm in college and at the end of the semester and I realize I stopped going to one of my classes because I didn't like it.  I spend the whole dream freaking out, trying to figure out what to do and mostly just feeling sick and stupid about the whole thing.  It's always a class on my high school campus, even though it's a college class and it's always taught by one of my high school teachers.  Completely ridiculous.

Also, just now, I have the annoying ring of pulsating light in my vision that is an early indicator of a migraine.

Honestly, I don't feel nervous, but I guess my subconscious and my body don't give a shit.

have you seen the ridiculous quantity of box sets that i own? have you not been with me when we watched a show, end to end more than once? have you not been with me in the HOURS i've invested in the shows that i really, really love?

then why, why is it that i have a Bones dream? i've seen about four random, nonconsecutive episodes over the last three weeks.

Bones? really?

i had a dream that i was already in california visiting, but not for comic con, i think.

wishful thinking, i suppose.
nyagosstar: (hitsugaya sigh)
i have spent, no joke, at least half an hour over the last two days sorting and folding socks. (i was a little backed up on laundry and own a crap load of socks for that very reason) it is possibly the stupidest and most useless endeavor in human history. the problem is, that if i don't, then i stand in front of my dresser, every day, cursing because i can't find a pair that match and i honest to god cannot bring myself to wear mismatched socks.

also, i had one of my work nightmares, the first one i've had since i've moved to my new store. the store closed, and i couldn't get people to leave. it was worse in the new store, though, because it has two floors and as soon as i got the first floor cleared, people would come in through the second floor entrance. and then, yeah, as soon as the second floor is clear people came in through the first floor. total suck.

and i cleaned my room. saying that makes me feel like i'm twelve years old, btw, but it's the truth. i cleaned out the crap, organized things and i feel so much better in general. and in that vein, here is my list of books that i've given up to clear out room on my nightstand and in my head.

can you tell i cut and pasted from my ocd excel file? )

usually, when i have dreams about being in school, it's something to do with the end of the semester and the realization that i've completely neglected to go to a class for the whole term. i end up faced with the decision of either going to take a final for a class i've never been to, or just avoiding the whole thing and hoping that it goes away.

this time, i was taking a final that apparently i had something like six hours to write. i'd write a couple lines then get up to go do something else, despite the fact that i knew i needed the entire time to do a good job. i think it may have something to do with the fact that i've been sitting on the same chapter for almost two weeks. there isn't even much in the way of editing that it needs. i've just been sitting on it.

i hate it when my subconscious acts all superior.

it struck me the other day i haven't been talking much about the other shows i watch, other than dr. who and torchwood, mostly because i don't feel like the writer's strike did anyone any favors and because when dr. who and torchwood are on, they kind of eat my brain. i'm looking forward to the summer when i get it back. though, if there is another freaking spin off with i'mnotamarysue!doctor's daughter i think i will lose my shit just a bit. i'm pretty sure there will be, and that's why they've been dropping hints about a female doctor for the past six months, but for real, i just don't care. the way i don't care about sarah jane. i just don't. there is a limit to my interest in the who-verse.

house was kind of disappointing to begin with and then stumbled a lot as a result of the break. it's really too bad that they saved up their best stuff for the two part season finale. this week's episode was kind of brilliant and i'm hoping for something as good next week. i don't think i'll be owning this season, though. it's not worth it.

criminal minds has been all right, but i hate the new guy they got to replace inigo montoya so much i kind of snarl a little whenever he comes on the screen. he's so useless i can barely stand it. especially because his only role seems to be to correct and then rescue the poor, stupid women on the show. because he is clearly so much smarter and better and they are just dumb girls. patriarchy, much? i do love jj with bad fake new orleans accent guy, though. and xander as computer tech geek with garcia fills me with total glee. they are too adorable for words.

oh, oh, my god, i haven't talked about the absolute crack addled insanity that is bleach, either. you have to love a series that, when it gets bored with what it's working on, completely blows it's own time line, leaves the main characters on the brink of a major battle and or death and jumps to a totally different story line that we can only assume takes place some time before everyone went off to heuco mundo. not that i'm complaining, i love soul society so much better than i love ichigo's scooby gang fighting arancar but there is NO EXPLANATION. and that level of crack is kind of love.

oh, yeah, and i got a raise, yesterday when i didn't think it would be getting on for the second year in a row. so, you know, go me. and go my boss for sticking up for me and making it happen.

i dreamed i was playing WoW last night. even though i have never played, never seen it played and my computer would crash and burn if i even thought of it.

it was fun, though.

maybe it was watching them play prince of persia 2 on criminal minds. product placement, yo.

too much tv

so, evidently, the combination of zelda, veronica mars and dr. who all in a row right before i go to sleep is not such a great combination. i had a horrible dream about playing/being in a video game(zelda) where i couldn't let this little mechanical thing touch me(dr. who--the empty child), which it did, and them spending what felt like hours running from it only to end up in jail. where keith and leo were there to help keep me safe(v. mars). very, very disturbing. also, i think there might have been a slitheen involved somewhere, but i'm not entirely sure.

[livejournal.com profile] twicetoldfandom seriously, go!

i finally, finally made an eye appointment and am going today to get my eyes checked for the first time in i guess two years? basically it means new contacts, which i haven't had since this time last year and new glasses, because, well, it's time. is it weird i'm exited?

and house with wilson on speed. best scenes of the season, really.

back at it

back to work this afternoon, though i'm closing instead of having my day cut neatly in half by a mid-shift. it was nice having my weekend and not thinking about work, i even ditched my conference call yesterday morning, though that wasn't intentional. i thought it was at ten, turned out it was at eleven and that's when the cable guys showed up to check out the connections and see if they could make our picture any better. the answer? only minimally. apparently the answer is to switch to digital cable like the rest of the universe.

i'm deeply in hugh laurie overload, between house, jeeves and wooster and a bit of fry and laurie. clearly i need a new hobby. unfortunately, i can watch tv while knitting, so that isn't helping much. finished season two of a bit of fry and laurie yesterday and omg, tony and control! i can't tell you why i love those sketches so much, but they crack me the fuck up. and the last one was so sad, 'i want coffee the way tony used to make it.' ugh.

also, i had this very strange dream where i was being chased through this weird supermarket type place, or maybe i was trying to escape and jeeves was with me. strange on many accounts, but mostly because i hardly ever dream about myself.

oh, yeah, and i got shot down and four different places for the wii. my surprise is nonexistent, but my frustration and anger have not ebbed. and why is it that all the guys who work at game stores look exactly the same?

i had a dream last night about house. he was a kindergarten teacher and was using class lessons to diagnose the children:

"d is for dog," said some kid.

House nodded and looked to the next child.

"E is for erichson syndrome," he said to the laughter of the parents.

House laughed along then looked at the kids' parent. "Seriously, you should get that checked out."

clearly i need to stop watching two or three episodes before i go to bed. and what the fuck is erichson syndrome anyway? my subconscious can't even be bothered to use real diseases.

So, for the first time in my life I’m having this recurring dream. It’s not every night, it’s not even once a month, but starting last year some time I think, I’ve been having the same dream in differing variations. I’m back in college and there are two classes I’ve signed up for. One of them, I keep forgetting to go, the other I don’t like and skip. So the dream starts at the end of the semester, with me suddenly realizing that there are two classes on my schedule that I haven’t taken a single test for, done a single assignment, and I’ve never bothered to drop either one of them. Oh, and one of the classes is always taught by my high school world history teacher. It’s ridiculous because it’s just school, and I haven’t been in classes for a couple years now, and at the same time, it’s totally panic inducing. I wake up, thinking to myself ‘why the fuck did you do that?’.

It’s extremely irritating.

This sat. sarah and I spent the day with our friend holly. It was just supposed to be lunch, to catch up, she needs someone to sit for the kitty again at the end of the month and wanted to give us the key and instructions. But when we got done with lunch, we wanders some shops, went to petsmart—it was ‘won’t you please adopt these adorable kittens’ day, which breaks my heart because I can’t have more than one, and frankly if I had my way I would be that crazy lady with the million cats. And then we were having such a good time, we went to the movies. And here is the problem with having friends whose tastes don’t always run parallel to one’s own. We ended up seeing that ridiculous movie with reese witherspoon and that guy and she’s all a ghost and he’s all emotionally damaged and blah, blah, blah. I didn’t hate it as much as I thought I would, there were even a couple funny moments. Not something I would have chosen on my own, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as say, Collateral, which I would have walked the hell out on if I’d been by myself.

also, kurt vonnegut was on the daily show last night. i honestly thought he was dead.

And that’s about all the rambling I have in me right now

usually happen, i was down in my boss's office the other night. I looking at the book promo's because i generally see all the music promo's that come through first, talking with amy-i work-with about the darth vader 20 questions site and other pointless games that are available on the web. And when i looked down at the bottom of the rack, the cd on top i actually gasped because it was a live cd of great big sea that [livejournal.com profile] rawumber had rec'ed on her site a couple days ago. now i know i've had this in my hands before, it has my handwritting on the back to mark it as promotional but i'd never noticed and it was such a strange twist of fate to come across it again, because i never look at the music once it goes down to kristina's office.

sometimes my dreams are like bad movie of the week shows )

anyway, to night is merch night, so it'll be late as usual, only this time we're changing every sign in the store and oh yeah, amanda isn't here and most of our summer kids went back to school and all the music that need security keepers is probably still sitting in my closet/workroom. awesome!
