I dreamed last night of being at the farmer's market and I was choosing flowers for a boquet for myself. I chose a core group of mustard-yellow carnation-like flowers and accented them with delicately petaled white ones, some eucalyptus, and some brick red flowers - very autumnal colors. I arranged them in a vase, but by time I was done, all of the flowers were the same and all the mustard-yellow color. I noted the difference, but I was still pleased with the outcome.

It's a damn shame that a woman with a good job can't afford even a cheap little condo in which to raise her family.

Strange dream.

I dreamed I was hiking with a group of friends. We were climbing around somewhere in Greece. Then we decided to go bowling. I was mad because someone kept using my bowling ball [it's a very personal item, after all]. My friends asked me to meet them at the peak of this mountain. When I was about half way up the mountain I realized I was climbing the wrong one. I saw them in the distance climbing the mountain we had agreed on. So, I started cross-trekking over to the correct mountain. When I got to the peak they were already gone. I hiked down and met up with them in a meeting in this beautiful pillared hall. I was dirty and sweaty, and they were slightly annoyed at my tardiness.

This evening I was pondering my love life, and I realized that if I had a nickel for every man who said, "I'll call you," and never did, I could buy the Golden Gate Bridge.

So, I've decided that from now on, every time a man asks me for my phone number I'm going to charge him a nickel for the privilege of having it. I figure by time I'm 65 I'll be able to afford the Golden Gate Bridge - or a nice retirement in Hawaii.
