Cigarettes and Coffee

I don't do Cigarettes, nope... never been a smoker. But I enjoy coffee very much, especially when it's made by and enjoyed with my wonderful Mother... She makes the best coffee ever... or maybe it's just because it's her. :) Anyway, first I'd like everyone to enjoy this video by the wonderful Otis Redding, "Cigarettes and Coffee".

Couldn't find a live one, so stare at the pic I guess while listening to the cool song. Or you could just continue to read my blog entry while listening. Think of it as 'accompaniment music'.

Now on to the latest "AJ Jibber Jabber". All is o.k. here, I guess. I'm just making it through the week and wishing that my band's Gig at The Stage Stop was over with... It really separates up my holiday weekend, and I fear that I am going to go back to work just as tired as when I finished the week... Is that what holidays are all about?? I don't really know anymore. Holidays, for the most part, suck.

These Dreams...

No more Z dreams so far this week, but I have had others... My Grandmother was in my dream the night before last (I was never close to her--this is my Mom's mom "Mamaw". I don't know why, I just never felt like she treated my Mom fairly, and I never enjoyed her company.) In the dream, my sister Debbie was there. We were in Mamaw's old house that she lived in before my Evil Uncle Max uprooted her so that she would catapult to her death... that's another story though... one not worth going into.

Debbie was 'fixing Mamaw's Hair', she rolled and teased it, and I don't get this because Debbie has never been a hair stylist that I know of, and Mamaw always went to Evil Uncle Max's ex-wife Aunt Jerri (I think). So go figure... weird anyways, but nonetheless entertaining.

Then I have had dreams with my Husband, where he and I were doing different things, just fun stuff, normal things that we do sometimes, and stuff we have discussed wanting to do... So that's all fine and good.

No more weird ones to report just yet though, but I will detail them. And for BBC (over at Spirit's Doings, just a note... I do the dream stuff because I am and have always been interested in that sort of thing. I actually ENJOY analyzing them and remembering them. Dreams are way better than reality, so I will continue to work with them, and have fun in dreams... If you don't enjoy yours, then they must be no fun. :) What's the problem with that? I like it, so that's what I do... I guess I'll just continue to "Monkey Around" with them then, eh?? ;)

Well nothing else to report. I don't know how the 4th of July weekend is going to turn out yet, I am playing it by ear and taking it all one step at a time... We'll see, I'm open and just going to enjoy what comes along (as long as my gig goes o.k.)

I have a lot of basic dreams where I'm just doing mundane everyday things too. Kinda boring really. I mean, doing the same routine things in my dreams as real life? Back when I was working at a former job I used to dream that I was at work and doing my basic everyday mundane job. That really sucked. Work all day and then dream about being at work all night. It was like I never left the place.

"Do you drink?

Me too. Well, with a little tequila or vodka in those drinks maybe. ;-)

I had a weird dream last night. I can only remember some bits of it...

One bit was being in a large office that I didn't recognise with some colleagues but a load of other people I didn't recognise. I was watching some sort of choreographed dance by these people who were all holding lap tops... Bizzare!

Then I was walking through some woods with someone (don't know who) and we're talking and there are other people running past us who are racing to get somewhere but I'm clearly not interested in that.... however all the people running were naked, so you'd have thought I'd have been intrigued just a bit wouldn't you
