those were the days  
I dreamed that I was watching an old episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show, one of the earlier eps when Rob and Laura lived in a chic downtown highrise apartment and not their suburban house. And it was the ep where Rob hits himself on the head and gets amnesia, reverting back to his high-school self when he was known by his nickname, Hucky. And these two strangers bring him home because he's all woozy and confused, and to help him jog his memory they all sit around and watch a movie reel of Rob's wedding--and it's such a cool episode, because one of the guys is actually a drag queen named Mona, which is way groundbreaking for TV in those days. I decided I'd wake up and write about it in my LJ, mentioning how great those earlier eps of the show were, before it went downhill.

Then I woke up and realized I'd just dreamed it all.

I miss the days when television used to be good. *sigh* :-D

When drag queens ruled the airwaves...

I'd love to rent space in your brain.

It's only fifty thou a year--I don't know why more people don't take me up on my ad. ;>)

Actually, I wish I could bid on your brain at the writercon auction. Seriously.

I also wish you were coming to writercon. Could you maybe reconsider?

OK, this is why you are a goddess. Everyone dreams about sex with Angel. (Fine, I don't, but never mind that.) But only you could dream up a whole new episode of Dick Van Dyke.

Hee. *g* I forgot to mention the part where Rob & the guys were lying stretched out on the couch to watch the movie and Rob suddenly *got* the fact that Mona was a drag queen, and did a pratfall roll off the couch onto the floor. Seriously: I want to watch that episode.
