dream time

In the dream I had flown to Chicago and was there with one of my biking girlfriends, sitting at a round table in the airport. My co-worker Sam sat between my friend and me. Across the table was Snoop Dogg and a few of his buddies.

Snoop reached across the table and handed me a bike fender. It was beautifully painted in a colorful, elaborate pattern that I wish I could describe. He then handed a gift to my friend. When Sam asked why he wasn't getting a gift, I turned to Snoop, then turned to Sam and started singing:
"He just wants to do something special for all the ladies of the world."

Snoop looked at me and asked me what that song was.

"Flight of the Conchords," I said. "You know, Flight of the Conchords?" this time questioning. How could he not know this song? This band. So, remembering that I had my laptop, I opened it up to pull up the video. They've got to see this, I thought. Then I heard something.

On the other side of the door to the jetway: "Meow... meow... meow." I opened the door and there was kitty.

I woke from the dream to the sound of kitty meowing in the kitchen while Jon fed her. She had been missing when we returned from a few nights in Hope, so we'd gone to bed kind of worried last night. Now kitty was back and safe. It was 6 a.m., so I didn't get back to sleep, just listened to the purring of our little friend.

But, man, I wonder where that dream was going! I also wonder if Snoop Dogg will ever record that song. And I wish I could get that fender!

you're lucky Snoop didn't reach back like a pimp and slap a ho.

what're you doing awake so early? Not doing homework, I see...

I'm thinking we should have a fender painting contest. Kind of like the Salmon on Parade, but it'll be fenders...

and all your biking girlfriends are wondering which one of us was in the dream and what was the gift?

if it was me, was i wearing my incredibly fabulous harlot shorts and that beautiful mesh biking top it never got warm enough to wear this year? :))

and I don't have the answer to either question. Those details were lost, just like the design on the fender.

(Katherine, if you're reading, what kind of paint would work on plastic fenders?)

I'm also not sure why Sam was there except that he can sing like the Conchords.
