What's Running through My Mind

(and maybe why I can't sleep)

As I lay in bed this morning listening to the high school band rehearse a few miles away with the tick-tick-ticking of their metronome, these questions went through my brain:

What did poor Mr. or Mrs. Bubonic do to get such a devastating disease named for him or her?

How on earth can one 50-yard skein of yard cost $100?

What goes through a dog's brain? We know they have emotions. We know they can be trained. What else do they know, and do they think we're idiots?

Is cancer more prevalent now than 100 yrs ago or just more diagnosed?

Are mold and mildew effects of the Fall?

In the Swiss Filtration System, how is caffeine rinsed out of coffee beans without flavor being washed out?

Why did the writers change up the roles in House and will it make the show over-cast?

Will we lose vowels in language due to text-messaging and return to a Hebrew system?

Why is it that someone who is afraid of turning thirty is also excited to learn of a local knitting club?

Why do people I haven't seen, talked to, or thought about in a decade show up in my dreams?

Are humans decaying--not just individually but as a whole?

Will I be able to fly in the New Earth? Will there be dinosaurs and unicorns?

Mmmm--will my homemade apple sauce go well with pancakes?

Bueller? Bueller?

Loved how it all came down to food in the end. And as for the rest, I was nicely amused.

So... you're turning thirty... you're part of a knitting club and shopping for $100 skeins of yarn (did you buy?)... and completely wacking out.

When I dream about specific people, I always use it as an opportunity to pray for them. Even if I have no ida what they're up to. Might as well pray for 'em, right?

Cracked. Me. Up.

ESPECIALLY the last line, given the other 37.

Funny girl, you are ;).

I, too, loved this jaunt through your morning mind.

Well no wonder you can't sleep.

I've always wondered if we'd fly in the New Earth, or at least be able to have really springy steps like on the moon.

But your dreams beat mine. People I don't even know have been trying to kill me in my sleep.

yes. use peanut butter on the pancakes instead of butter, and pour the apple sauce over that. yum.

I saw a news item - house fire. The house was nearly destroyed, but the firemen found the dog in the bathtub with his nose down in the drain... getting oxygen. Survived with just some heat stroke.

No answers for the other questions but I can tell you one major thought my dogs project to me. "There she goes again, peeing my my water dish. And she thinks it's bad that I lick myself clean." I know, but dogs don't understand Ewwwwwww.
