Alarms in the Dark

I had a dream last night that our house alarm went off.  My eyes popped open and I was frozen with fear, but I somehow willed myself to get out of bed.  It was pitch black, no light from anywhere and I was droping my way towards the stairway, feeling for the wall to guide me.  When I got to the stairs my voice was thick from fear and sleep as I tried to shout at whoever it was that had broken into my home. I woke up.  The bedroom was dark, but I could see as much as I can any other time in the room with the faint light from the clock and a little bit of illumination …

Tina Fey and Milly

I’ve had a lot of vivid dreams lately but I don’t usually remember them for very long.  I had two that I can recall pretty well last night. In the first one, I was friends with Tina Fey.  She came over to my place, which was similar to an apartment I’ve seen somewhere, but I can’t quite place it.  She was sitting curled up in a papasan and I was sitting on a couch and we were talking about what movie to watch.  I wanted to watch The Hulk but she wanted to watch something else.  We were also being a bit flirty. I then have some vague knowledge of Amanda having found out that I was flirting with Tina …

HD Antenna

I actually had this dream last night.  True story. So I was sitting in the kitchen early one morning, like around 6:30 or so and a Duke game was on.  The Blue Devils were down 13-6 at with 1:37 left in the first half.  (I know, the first two sentences don’t make much sense.)  Amanda was about to go to work (and she was taking her co-worker Allison with her, even though Allison lives in Leland) and I mentioned to her that I was going to pick up an antenna for both the TVs in the house so we could get local HD programming (I think we were going to be dropping cable?) and she started telling me I would …

Wetsuit Repair

We’ve got some added sales leads these past few days, which is definitely a good thing.  The company is fueled by recurring income and is doing fine in that regard, but extra jobs coming in=bonus.  I asked my boss, Scott Hendrix, what I needed to do to double my salary today.  He said we’d talk about it tomorrow.  I wouldn’t think he’s got a plan to literally double my salary, but it would definitely be nice. I went to check out a wetsuit I’d heard about on Craigslist.  This girl found it in her house and had no idea where it came from.  We’ve been communicating for a while about it and finally figured out a time for me to …

Terrible Wife

I woke up in the office last night with the TV and the light on and I decided to head upstairs to get in bed.  As I walked down the hall I realized I’d left the living room light on as well, and as I turned the corner to walk towards the stairs I realized that not only was the front door open, but the storm door was being held wide open as well. I was immediately stricken with a pang of fear- I’d left the front door open with the light on and someone had come into the house and probably taken who knows what.  My next thought was that the dogs, Bruce and Harvey, might have gotten out …
