Weird Things
I have a weird printer.

Whenever I (politely) suggest that it print something, it gets all upset. It whines, it jerks the paper back and forth, and generally makes a fuss. It eventually prints, and prints nicely, but it's never happy about it.

When not printing but powered on, it sulks and grumbles to itself. I have to turn it off as soon as I'm through using it, just to get a moment's peace.

I have weird cats.

I woke up from a little nap this afternoon (today's my Friday off), and looked around the room. They had ravaged a box of "girly" supplies I'd kept on a shelf, and there were pads and tampons strewn about the room.

The two younger kitties were spooning in my (still not unpacked) suitcase, squeezed in together, shedding all over my clothes, half-asleep. They blinked at me curiously while I frowned at them. I would have taken a picture, but my camera was somewhere underneath them.

I have weird dreams.

I have an irksome mole on my back, which my thumbnail occasionally catches painfully when I scratch my back. (This part is true, though the mole changed locations for the dream last night. The rest is not true, not at all, I promise.) I think I was at the con hotel. was scratching my back, and my thumb hit the mole. It felt especially large and weird, so I went to a mirror, turned around, and tried to inspect my lower-right back. Not an easy task.

The mole had grown and developed a hard exterior; it was bright yellow with small black spots! Disgusted and startled, I flicked at it with my thumb and jerked my hand away. The yellow shell popped off like an old scab, and fell on the floor. I looked on the floor, and there were a few ladybugs or beetles crawling around, whirring their wings.

I tried to look at my back again in the mirror, and it looked like the scab area was now enormous and white underneath, and... were there little black things in there? I looked at the bugs on the floor, and felt horrified and revolted. Had those been on me? Were there more??? I kept trying to look at my back, but I couldn't really twist around and see.

I started wandering around the hotel, simultaneously trying to find somebody to look at it and help me, yet trying to hide it because I was so disgusted and embarrassed, so afraid at what awfulness it might reveal. That's all I remember... what a disturbing dream!

That sounds disturbing!! Yikes! If you like to read about weird dreams, though, might I suggest talkingblenders ? It can get pretty funny over there!

And aren't cats the best? They are so weird! My cat was sleeping on top of his face, today, face down in the blanket. He scared me at first, then just made me laugh. Not sure if the picture turned out clearly, yet. I'll post in my journal, if it did!

And that is strange about your printer. Weirdness is kind of a fun thing to have in life sometimes, though. At least it makes for good story telling! :)

That would *terrify* me. Thank goodness it was just a dream.

When I'm stuck in a dream like that one I use the ability I have to force my eyes open. It wakes me up almost immediately. I say almost, because for a half a second or so I'm in the waking world *and* the dream at the same time. It's disconcerting, but then the dream ends.

Yeah, it was a very unpleasent and creepy dream. I've had dreams where I've been able to wake up, or at least recognize them as dreams. But this one didn't feel "dreamish" wat the time, and even when I'd woken up I spent a few hours checking my back periodically and forgetting it had just been a dream. It's so weird when a dream takes over your memory like that!

If you want, you can get the mole removed. I had one on my stomach that would get itchy sometimes, and my doctor thought it was best to remove it. He did it in ten minutes, it didn't hurt, and he sewed it closed. Now I have just a tiny scar where it used to be.
