Then, a much weirder one--since I've been playing D&D for 15+ years, have GURPS Monsters and Blood Types and most of the other bestiaries, I know the standard monster set, but someone reminded me of what a "pengallin" was, though they used a different name for it--for non-dorks, it's an exotic form of vampire that takes the form of a flying head torn free from its body, with most of the horrible entraily bits hanging down. Anyway, in *this* dream, I was in some sort of Port Aransas-style beach-house, being hunted by one of those. The dream-camera did a lot of really graphic close-ups, though the special effects were occasionally "Nightmare on Elm Street" they were (thankfully) more on the lines of Big Trouble in Little China. Except for the excruciating scene where the head seperated from the body. (blerk.)
Other stuff...Butterfly is loaning me her car, and my insurance has gone from $140 a month to $7 a month, so that's a plus, and will help me put some money aside for the next set of wheels. Whines left for San Antonio for a few days and I missed his "heading out, bye" e-mail, which didn't help my mopey mood. I'm not sure what genre "About Schmidt" falls into--since it was a bittersweet film about a retiree and his relationships with the world, I classed it as a "chick flick," but it's too dark. I do think it's a couple-movie, in that it MUST be watched with someone else, but it's just a dark emotional wringer.
I'm a little annoyed with myself for not writing more, but between absolute hell (fun hell, I love this sort of stress) at work, car troubles, spending more time with Whines, and some roommate strife, it's been a rough few weeks for extracurricular activities. I skipped out on Pagan Night Out to recoup, and ended up at a board game night/midnight movie at Casa de Nasco, so no recouping!
