There might also have been killer mice...  
I dreamed last night that, while I was out of the office for one day, they moved my desk to a different floor. I wandered in circles for a while and somehow got bundled into a meeting with another editor and her manager. The editor was filing an expense report with truly shameless line-items. She wanted reimbursement for all her meals and snacks, and for a bunch of videos she'd watched. Huh, I thought.

When I found my desk at last, I discovered that our office had become a department store and it was opening day of the annual back-to-school sale. Horrifying--there were shoppers everywhere, and a huge auditorium had appeared in the middle of the store, full of hundreds of trainees.

The dream segued into shopping with my mother, who wouldn't buy me any fall clothes. I was enraged and obnoxious, and in the back of my mind, I knew it was unjustifiable, because I was of age and fully employed and living at home.

This of course illustrates:

* The unfixed nature of my internal compass
* Angst over my unreturned rental videos
* My fear of small schoolchildren
* A need to buy more clothes

I leave you with this stolen thought of the day:

I like the pic. And since a version of that happens in my kitchen on a regular basis...I appreciate the photographer's skill. Heh.

I have no idea why, but this part made me laugh so hard I almost sprayed water all over my laptop.

And I love that picture.

Children are scary.
They can attack you with virtual impunity.

Now I'm trying to visualize children flinging small handfuls of virtual impunity...

They fire it out of water pistols, or sometimes, use catapults...
