Betting on the Dogs

No luck man. Rob, Christy, and I have been going to the Valley Race Park, greyhound races, these past three weeks and I can’t seem to catch a break man. I have come close of course. Always coming up short one dog. Damn those dogs. As Rob said,”how freaking hard is it to pick three dogs”. We usually bet whats called a Trifecta Box. You pick three dogs and they can come in in any order as long as they are in the top three. Its turning out to be a waste of money but it can be fun when your dogs are in the lead. I tell myself that at least I am not wasting this money on drinks!

Christy’s sister is the only one that has picked all three dogs. Damn her!
I might not be going this coming weekend.

Strange Drean

I had a weird dream last night. Wierd. I shouldn’t even be talking about it since I have not eaten. I can’t remember all the details and my dreams are usually all scrambled. One minute I am at one place and the next I am at another.

I was at a house and people from work were there and we were opening Christmas gifts. I got some candy and a model Corvette that was very shiny. Like Paris Hiltons cell phones. A lot of people opened gifts but I wont go into the detail about what people got or were saying. All of a sudden there was a loud siren like sound and a bright flash. Up in the sky thier appeared to be a meteor or astroid falling from the sky heading towards us. Either it passed over us or crashed to the ground. It was very confusing. Several of these things flew through the sky and at one point I thought I was going to die because I said tell everyone I love them. I guess they never hit the ground but they left a streak through the sky. Kind of like the ones airplanes leave when they are flying real high. Something appeared to be falling from those streaks though. Falling the way blood drips on glass. It was almost clear but had bubble in the inside. Like the stuff in a lava lamp. At first we were scared but I made a motion for someone to reach up and touch it, and they did. It looked like it was harmless but then it attached itself to our fingers. It was doing something to us. I was the last one to get the upgrade. After awhile something or someone came on to the computer screen. It reminded me of a snake. A friendly snake. It was telling us how we just got the latest demo of some sort of mind enchancement project. It would let us use the full capacity of our brains I guess.

What was also weird was that I felt like that snake had communicated to us before and that we were aware of this whole project but it was the first time they had done something to us. After the broadcast on the television I found that I was able to tell the TV what station to change to, to play music, and to open the internet.

Other things were going on in the dream that I cant remember in detail but everyone was going on as normal. None of this was strange or scary. There was no presidential address or anthing.
Very Very Wierd. When I woke up I was a little relieved it was a dream.

Christmas is Over

So goes another Christmas. I am grateful for the gifts I got but man do I miss getting toys for Christmas. I remember those nights trying to go to bed super early so that I can wake up even earlier to open gifts. Those were the days. One night sticks in my head for some reason. My brother and I had an old Black and White TV in our room and I was so trying to sleep but he kept watching TV so I couldnt get to sleep. That sucked.

I also miss going outside to show off the gifts I got, whether they be big or small. Going out to play with cars or with a new bike. I get flashbacks when I leave the house on Christmas day and I see kids playing outside or riding shiny new bikes. You know what they got for Christmas.

The most toy like gift I got this year was a Telephone in the shape of a Corvette from Rob’s girlfriend Christy. Last year I got some Hotwheels so that was cool
I miss being a kid.

Can I Get A Witness

In the movie Shall We Dance Susan Sarandon’s character is asked what she thinks about marriage or why does she think people still believe in marriage. I thought her answer was great and tonite I found myself telling myself I wish I had a witness to my life. Here is her answer:

“We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness’.”
