always a tiger

chasing rabbits is "out"...lying on top of doghouses is "in"!

tied wi' a silken string,
whilk i sent to thee
frae the far countrie,
a message of love to bring?"

"it cam' to me frae the far countrie
wi' its silken string and a';
but it wasna prepaid,"
said that high-born maid,
"sae i gar'd them tak' it awa'."

"o ever alack
that ye sent it back,
it was written sae clerkly and well!
now the message it brought,
and the boon that it sought,
i must even say it mysel'."

"'you are far from being a bad man'
signature, 'oscar b. wilder.'"

everyone's talking about dreams lately.
so yesterday i was so wrapped up in a dream that i ignored my alarm clock going off for a full hour. this is unusual. but it was fine since i didn't really need to be up before i got up. i don't remember much from my dreams when i remember anything (which is rare as well) but this past week i've remembered some. (it seems to help in remembering if part of me is awake, like today when i'm sure some part of me was conscious of the alarm's cries). a certain someone has been in my dreams a lot just lately. today as well. it's nearly impossible for me to communicate 'what happened' in my dreams because as full consciousness returns i immediately begin to lose details, what made sense to dreaming-me no longer does, and i'm left with a few general impressions. why it is so difficult to remember something that was being experienced just moments ago i can't fathom. so i get no interesting dream story and neither do you (despite knowing it was an interesting dream story). so then i flipped on my transcendental winamp shuffler while getting ready for work and the second song up was of course, 'i had too much to dream (last night)' by the electric prunes. it's exactly everything. and later watching the youtube clip of the song (which if you're not familiar with the song, there you go) from a tonight-show-esque show i was treated to barbara feldon as a prunette.
