Adventure! On! Mt.! Rainier!
So JB did this monster hike
Saturday with some buddies and they were caught in some nasty
weather, total whiteout conditions. JB had to use his GPS and
compass to blindly navigate the rest of their way to the Muir
shelter. Thank god it wasn't me! Or everyone would have died,
because I would have led us in a really big circle or something!
PLUS, JB pulled off a successful midnight Stealth Pee, which
involved a Powerade bottle and some impressive-sounding maneuvering.
Did you ever know that you're my heeeeeeeerrrooooooooo?
He's always doing Fear Factor
stuff like that, then comes home and asks me how my day
was. I'm like, "Um, well the cat had the biggest water beard
ever. We're talking three drops! Also I bought acorn squash."
I had this ugly dream last night.
A dam had broken, a river was rising out of control, and muddy,
scary water was fast approaching as I huddled inside a house,
looking out the window. I decided that I wasn't going to die
pressed up against the ceiling, running out of air, eventually
drowning - so I ran out on the balcony, figuring it would be
better to be swept up in the raging flood. And then the water
stopped, lapping just at my feet. And I woke up. Brrr.
So I did some searching on what
the hell that meant, with the speed of the internet. First
I checked out what good old Freud thought, but he pissed me off.
Me: "The water?"
M: "The house?"
M: "The drowning aspect?"
F: "Penis-and-vagina. Or, possibly, vagina-and-penis."
Shut UP, Freud. Damn, with your
repressed-ass sexuality self.
Then I found this
site, which despite its mild cheesiness ('You have entered
the mysterious and fascinating world of dreams') did not
automatically play an Enya .wav file from the homepage, which
is my new Gold Standard for dream interpretation websites.
Here's what I learned: "To see water in your dream,
symbolizes your unconscious and your emotional state of mind.
To see muddy or dirty water in your dream, indicates that you
are wallowing in your negative emotions. To dream that water
is rising up in your house, signifies your struggles and overwhelming
Jeez. It gets worse: "To
dream that you are drowning, signifies that you are overwhelmed
by emotions or repressed issues that are coming back to haunt
But, WHEW: "If you survive
the drowning, you will rise to a higher position of wealth and
I choose to interpret this as:
JB and I are gonna win Lotto! Totally! Right ON, what a bitchin'
Oh, and if you see a Walrus? It signifies protection and your
display of dominance in some situation or relationship. Just
so you know.
