My "boyfriend" has created an animation
that he wants me to look at, but i'm busy. I'm trying to get ready for a big upcoming event
- like a cross between the annual meeting and my uncle
's wedding (He's already married - it's actually my brother that's getting married
soon. But i guess the syncretism
is between my uncle's performance at the annual meeting as co. president and my identification
with my father. This connection was only made when awake
I'm supposed to be in some kind of sketch with him, i'm not sure what it's about, but we were rehearsing while standing waist-deep in a lake. At one point, i have to go fetch something and find myself walking quite a distance on a very uneven rock formation about 6 inches below the surface, but which i can't be sure of. It frequently drops off.
We're staying at a cabin-type place, which i've been in before (only in dreams i think). I'm noticing all of the things that are different. I notice the trap door to the loft space where i used to hide has been boarded over. The whole family is there and everybody seems pretty stressed out. Even Bob is there.
I finally check out the animation and it is pretty cool. It's got a lot of filmesque crazy montage, photos of our friends and bright colors and his comics mixed in. I'm not allowed to show anybody, so i hide it in the oven. the edges of all the pages get scorched, but i think it adds to the character. I don't know what he'll think.
The next day i sleep in and when i wake up, everybody's gone. Luckily, Bob hasn't left yet so i catch a ride with him to the fancy-schmancy conference center where the event is taking place. I walk in late and mum is pissed. I've forgotten to wear the gown i'm supposed to, and my piece is coming up, just after intermission. Bob thinks the thing is stupid and offers to take me back to the cabin. I'm afraid i'll be late, i find my gown, but i have no way to get back. I sit at the cabin, thinking about how i've disappointed everyone.
