my palm tree

i'm on an island, and it's awfully warm; i'm going to get a sunburn.
the sand is hot, and the sky is blue, and the water is infested with sharks and stingrays, and that's the way i like it.
barclay is here, and some of my best friends, and seth rogen.
there is a palm tree growing out of my leg.

buzzer. what. 4:00. snooze.

i need to shave my legs. there is a palm tree growing out of my leg.

buzzer. ugh. 4:05. snooze.

i could cry. seth rogen is playing with the sharks. there is a palm tree growing out of my leg.

buzzer. 4:10 am.

i touch my leg.
the palm tree is gone,
but so is the tropical paradise.

stupid alarm clock.

you have the funniest dreams!

I hate alarm clocks. Actually my phone is my alarm clock. It is lucky it isn't broken by now. Geez!

Unrelated, by kind of still.

That is a swell dream drawing... very... dreamy.

Why is your alarm set for 4:00?! Is that for Barclay?

SUZY I'VE HAD A DREAM WHERE I HAD A TREE GROWING OUT OR MY LEG TOO!!!! I can't remember if it was a palm tree, but it was definitely a tree. And the whole time I was really worried about how I was going to shave it. But it was all also normal in my dream. Like "crap, a tree."

I had a dream like that last week. Except there was not a palm tree growing out of my leg ... I was just so warm and so ... not in Regina. Alarm clocks are. the. PITS.

amylou: hahaha, i use my phone too. and barclay has his. AND we have an alarm clock. [we don't wake up very easily.]

steven: hahaha, reading archives?

amyschmamey: :D!

justine: yes. sigh. he gets up then to go shovel snow.

emmy: hm. it must mean something. a tree is something unmoving, rooted, while a leg is something associated with mobility. maybe we can't tell whether to stay where we are or go somewhere?
i think that's a pretty spiffy dream interpretation, if i do say so myself.

kiersten: alarm clocks. absolutely. are. the. pits. truth.
