  • acres of mall

  • yelling at the kids, furious, scary. Emma, J. Michael, but mostly I was mad at Victoria.

  • In the underground museum we walked around until we'd seen everything, then went back to the beginning where the line had formed for the bears. We let the others go on ahead. What was she playing with? The zookeeper had an animal I had never seen. Made out of cloth and buttons and yarn. It was friendly, played hide & seek and peekaboo with her, but I was freaked. I asked what kind of animal it was. She said she didn't know, she'd found it in Guam.

    Later, I found a scrap of paper:
    Auntie, but nemo says she won't "cross that bridge" with me until she's "older." She kept the rotten puppet though. Guam.

  • sanrio store

  • the littlest one won the discman

  • they finally set them free, back into the ocean
  • I dreamed I visited the corporate headquarters of Everything. It was a converted warehouse full of cubicles, and there must have been something like forty people there all working at a furious pace, developing new technology, hammering out high-stakes business deals, fielding requests from the media for interviews.

    I spoke briefly with Nate, who looked to be in his mid-forties with craggy, tanned good looks and a shock of salt-and-pepper hair. He didn't really have time to talk to me but did say that they might have some freelance work I could do in the near future if I felt I was up to it. I wasn't sure if I was, but said I'd be in touch.

    After a weekend and the first day of spring break filled with work, a chess tournament, and six flags.. I went home and crashed for 14 hours. I had a dream.

    I went to work (a local arcade) and it turns out the owner had added a cafe to our business. I talked to him and he said we were going to go out of business for a week, and open up with a new name, and pretend to go into new management. This way we could win back all of our customers who had gotten fed up.

    After work I went behind the store. I found a car, and I was very excited as I knew it belonged to no one, so I could take it. (I do not have a car.) I hopped in, but I was in the passenger's seat. The car started driving and I happily waited for a few hours.

    Then I realized that I didn't know where the car was going. This was a very dire situation so I decided to call my friend Nancy. It was 4 am in the morning, so I wanted to make sure I was waking her up for a good reason. I thought to myself, "This could just be a dream. I don't want to call and wake her up if this is not really happening to me." Then I thought, "This is too real. There is no way this is a dream. My life is in danger." So, I called her up. She said, why don't you drive the car? And I did..
