The Best Part


The best part of my day is when…

I’m not thinking about all the stuff that makes up the rest of the day.

Sometimes the best part lasts all day.

Now that’s a whole I don’t mind digging!


note: the rest of my day sometimes involves sleep.

double note: I’m not a hippie! … “digging” just seemed to be “groovy” for this post … and had the right “vibe“.


what I’m listening to now #25:  Fleetwood Mac.

Practically Dreaming


I dreamt …

I was falling … while bungee jumping.

I was running but not moving … on a treadmill.

I saw a unicorn … in a book.

I was flying … in an airplane … in economy class as usual.

I bought a lottery ticket … and lost.

All my teeth were falling out … but I was 6 in the dream.

I was standing stark naked … in my shower.

I stood by helplessly watching the world being destroyed … in a movie theatre with 3D glasses.


note: I’d never dream about failing a test!

double note: I don’t have time to daydream, so I just hourdream.

triple note: I guess Eve should be there at the beginning of the world and at the end: Eve of Destruction … I think that’s what that song is talking about.


what I’m listening to #5: The Tragically Hip.

In My Dreams … #13


In my dreams … I dream of REM sleep.


note: REM was when you dREM.

double note: REM happens on a lot of topless beaches too.

triple note: #1  and #2  and #3  and #4  and #5  and #6  and #7  and #8 and#9  and #10  and #11  and #12  are still slumbering along.




I’m going to become a “trainspotter spotter” until that becomes popular

… then I’ll probably become a “trainspotter spotter spotter”.

I don’t know what I’ll do next, when that becomes popular!


note: there’s an old steam train around here that shoots out of a mountain tunnel onto a trestle bridge that goes over a river every Sunday around 11:30 am. It must look pretty cool: there are always a half dozen trainspotters waiting for it.

double note: here is the steam train on another section of the track, if you are into trains and stuff.


Today #266

Today I missed the train again … and the boat … and the bus …
but I thought about them.



Last night I slept like a baby. It was great!

… I didn’t wear a diaper … or soil myself … or cry … or wake up in the middle of the night for some food though.

I guess I didn’t sleep like a baby after all!

No wonder babies are so tired;
… they don’t sleep very well really.


note: maybe I slept like a log??

double note: if I sleep with another person who is sleeping like a log too, I guess there isn’t any threat of starting a fire.

triple note: I’ve never started a fire by rubbing 2 sticks together! … I’ll add that to my “alternative reality bucket list” … that’s the one that includes things I don’t really want to do too badly.

quadruple note: are there any “Alternative Reality Shows“? … if there were, that would be really cool … unless it was just different shows on different channels … then that wouldn’t be.

quintuple note: sleeping pong” would keep me awake.


Today #73

I bought a todaily newspaper.



Sometimes in the wee hours of the morning I can’t stop thinking about all the terrible things I’ve done in the past and all the pain and suffering I’ve caused other people.

But when I sense the sun coming up for a new day I feel better for some reason,

… so I close my coffin and go to sleep peacefully.


note: are vampire friends called “vampeers“?


notes to myself #193

We let most things go, but when we don’t … we really don’t.

In My Dreams … #12



In my dreams … I never win the lottery.

… probably because so many people are playing it there.


note: photo not taken from an airplane.

double note: #1  and #2  and #3  and #4  and #5  and #6  and #7  and #8 and #9  and #10  and #11  are still slumbering along.


notes to myself #151

Some things you know intuitively … but other things are a reach.

In My Dreams #11


In my dreams … I dream the same things over and over again

… but they are on a 10 year loop, so it’s not so bad.

The ones about flying and eating candy are the best!


note: photo not taken from an airplane.

double note: #1  and #2  and #3  and #4  and #5  and #6  and #7  and #8 and #9  and #10  are still slumbering along.


notes to myself #138

No one is ever waiting for you
… you are always early.

In My Dreams … #9

my next house


In my dreams  I dream that all my dreams come true in my dreams.

… then I wake up, realize I’ve slept on my arms again, and think “that was a confusing dream, but at least there wasn’t a bull chasing me“.


note: photo taken in one of the DisneySea sections.

double note: #1  and #2  and #3  and #4  and #5  and #6  and #7  and #8 are still slumbering along.

triple note: It’s only taken me 7 of these entries to notice that when I copy and paste this photo it isn’t centered like the first 2 in the series. I am very unobservant sometimes.
I usually screw up on numbering the “notes to myself” too.

Why am I telling you this?

I just felt like sharing today.


notes to myself #71

None of your brothers or sisters name their kids after you. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad.

The Sweetest Things #2


Is there anyone who doesn’t like the cold side of the pillow?

… I thought so.

I stand uncorrected.


note:cold pillow talk” isn’t good sometimes.

double note: it’s a renewable resource.

triple note:  wordpress  is having a video contest for things people are thankful for. I don’t have a video camera to be thankful for this year, but …
I thought I’d just throw some things I’m thankful for out there.

quadruple note: if you missed the “The Sweetest Things #1” scroll down or click or something … it’s close by.


notes to myself #67

Don’t stand so close behind Alphie while playing ball hockey in grade 4: stitches are involved.
