Sundries
...a sweatshop of moxie

My Hips Will Pay

I woke up with a start, from a bad dream at 4:30 AM today. Yes, cheese was involved.

We had gone to the Cheesecake Factory (my first time ever, although I like cheesecake), and I paid the price with dreams about a left-wing professor I knew once knew, taking me around the flat of an ex-colleague, who had been murdered, but whose book I had apparently read.

Somehow, feminist lawyer, Gloria Allred, and Mike Jerrick, of FNC Dayside fame, were involved in the dream...

Gosh, nightmares are weird, aren't they?

Remind me to tell you the one about Big Bird and Marie Antoinette.

So far, I haven't dreamt of Sundries readers, but if I did, I'd like to think we were all part of a Agatha Christie-type murder mystery, with me as Poirot, obviously.

("Bad moustache" and "poor grammar" are my middle names!)

When I got up, I realised I was unaccountably hungry -- almost ravenously so.

Seeing as how my fridge rarely has anything in it besides (a) Milk (b) Water (c) Eggs, in it, I was shocked to find:

Hot Dogs!

So I made myself one.

I tarried by reading the blog and replying so as to allow myself time to digest, before returning to bed, but now I'm hungry again. What gives, yo?!?

And in response to inner-monologue questions as people read this, no, I am not preggers.

I have no idea what has come over me tonight, save the thought of Gloria Allred defending me in court makes me have the appetite of a Sudanese.

To think, one of my New Year Resolutions is NOT to lose weight.

I fear, soon, it will be.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll repair to my chambers, for the sleep most excellent, to rest my leetle grey cells.

  • The appearance of Mike would make it a nightmare for me. Did you see him slobbering over Juliet on New Years Eve?
    Did you hear them complaining about the lack of alcohol - which it was obvious they had a good bit of? Did you see Juliet say "These people have some sh*t" on the air?
    The Political Teen has video of it.

    Back to you, hope you slept well after the hot dog; you're scaring me, dreaming of cheese cakes and Mike and Allred is your reward for doing so. Gee, I hope your humour involving the Sudanese doesn't bring you hate mail.
    Big Bird ranks right up there with the Burger King King terrifying me in my sleep so I might like the Marie Antoinette story.
    I would think a Miamian (?), heh, would have nightmares of northern weather. I do. But mine are real.

    *LOL*

    (See what I mean)

    Actually, yes, we had on several channels, since I was downstairs in the bill Reception Hall condo party.

    Now that you mention it, they did seem rather jolly...more than usual.

    And Mike was the more drunk of the two, slobbering all over Juliet, to the point where she said, "We are not dating (wait for it) and we never will."

    Ouch.

    See? Asterisks. Good Paul. Heel.

    Yeah, the rate I am going these days, it's bound to.

    Are you sure? It involves a school bus and one of the 9/11 hijackers...

    Poor Paul.

    It doesn't help you to say that the sun as I type, is brilliantly hot.

    This past weekend has been the picture postcard SoFla vacation weather -- beating sun, in the mid-80s, at night, no lower than 75F.

    But I digress and torture.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • We worry not for the overly zaftig sundries...her innate cussedness will prevent this!

    I once had a nightmare about being dissected while fully conscious...and while having this, my then-spouse woke up me screaming that she had caught a bat and what in blazes should she do with it! Whew!

    I am making risotto with porcini funghi just now (a package sent by Renato -- pray for me) and just now, I fear zaftig is upon me. ;(

    I once had a nightmare about being dissected while fully conscious...

    Holy smokes. Stilton, I take it.

    and while having this, my then-spouse woke up me screaming that she had caught a bat and what in blazes should she do with it! Whew!

    What! You were married to Ann Althouse???

    This is the classiest of blogs, leaving me little choice but to behave.

    maybe, it'd have to be in a solemn manner. Nothing involving children being hurt presented otherwise. I can't handle that.

    Poor Paul.

    Well, you start off good, sympathy, Poor Paul and all, then another side of you emerges. Torture with kindness. What sun? Send me a post card of it someday and finish me off.
    I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Except for having to watch Mike and his pitiful attempt to take Juliet home to eat cheesecake with Gloria Allred.
    Where is Jose?

    Yeah...it was one of those 'Brittney in Vegas' kinda of weddings...we both officially deny it, of course...

    Sizzling Cats, does this mean I'm RLC and in total denial about it?

    [HAL voice] My mind. It's going. I can feel it. I can feel it.

    Oh beehave!

    I find Austin Powers has usurped Shakespeare in modern-day quoting society.

    Some people are sentimental about kiddies.

    Although I like kids, my heart strings are tugged by the aged.

    But no kids were harmed in the making of this nightmare dream with a frank resemblence to Speed.

    He's around. He posted his New Year wishes, but January is traditionally down-time in Blogosphere.

    It'll pick up just around Sundries' 1st year anniversary.

    13th January. ;)

    Of course. Especially seeing as how Richard would plotz.

    Real Life Crush?

    Don't worry. Everyone is a little in love with someone, in this world.

    It's healthy! Just don't hear voices.

    [HAL voice] My mind. It's going. I can feel it. I can feel it.

    My dream is to have a HAL computer just like Keir Dullea, erm, had, but I would name him, DAVE.

    Data-Audio Voice Executor, obviously.

    Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do.

    You are the best.
    A whole year. I think I missed half of it, coming late to this so very enjoyable place.
    Are we supposed to get you something? ;)

  • There used to be a 'rent-a-celeb' service where you would pay famous people (defined quite loosely) to show up at your party! Part of the deal is that they would pretend to know you, for a price of course!

    I mention this because Douglas Rain (voice of HAL) was the cheapest at only $600! (plus his travel)

    This would be especially funny if you had a friend named Dave...

    Blog things come to those who wait. ;)

    Yes.

    You each of you are supposed to bring a friend to celebrate on that day.

    And ice cream-cake.

    P.S.: I hate chocolate.

    ARE YOU SERIOUS??

    Wow, finally.

    A gig even more embarrassing, and demeaning for "celebs" than even VH-1 reality shows.

    I never thought that possible.

    This would be especially funny if you had a friend named Dave...

    Can you imagine Douglas Rain in bed?

    (shiver)

    Yes, though I haven't been able to find it today...Kim Basinger was $50K!


    Can you imagine Douglas Rain in bed?


    [HAL voice] Yes. Oh. God. Was it good for you to?

    [Jim Varney voice] Do we have any beer?

    I don't have any friends, I'm obnoxious.

    Now wait, not that ice-cream cake with marshmallow icing? I won't eat it, (I know, my loss) it tastes funny.

    Just chocolate ice cream, I hope. I'm a milk chocolate freak. I prefer vanilla ice cream and don't care for chocolate much. It tastes funny too.

    Bah, no you're not.

    Now wait, not that ice-cream cake with marshmallow icing? I won't eat it, (I know, my loss) it tastes funny.

    I am thinking of the ice cream cake which has ice cream INSIDE the cake thingie.

    I loved that, and not always did I get it for my birthdays!

    I was crushed.

    Just chocolate ice cream, I hope. I'm a milk chocolate freak. I prefer vanilla ice cream and don't care for chocolate much. It tastes funny too.

    Ack, my dad loves choccie milk, which I abhor, being a "regular" girl.

    And interestingly, I do chocolate ice-cream, perhaps the only time when I like chocolate!

    Is this incompatibility? I certainly hope not or I will be crushed. Okay, I'll give up milk chocolate, you're much worth it. :)
