I'm #1 if you search for my name on

I'm also front page material if you search for the keywords racquetball and cutthroat together.

I was going through my ('s) Apache log files when I saw a referral from Google with the keywords racquetball and cutthroat. Funny, I didn't even try for that.

Well, Sam has probably left by now. He never did come home last night, after leaving that cryptic note. I'll miss having him around, now it's just me and the kitties again.

I finally found the sheet music for the reels Blink, West Clare Reel, and Lexy MacAskill's! I found them at The I've been looking (off and on) for them for so long..

Now I'll have to break out my E-flat whistle and work on them.

Cajun Alligators

Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:22 am)

This is one of my more vividly remembered dreams. I dreamt I was playing volleyball in a park when all of a sudden, we were set upon by two alligators. They were huge, fat alligators, and they were on a flatbed trailer. They hung their legs over the side, down to the ground, and used their toes to pull themselves along. They talked in a New Orleans accent, too (it seems most of my animal dreams are about talking animals), and even sang. They sang Honky Tonk music while they chased us.

One night I dreamt that Mr. Pookies could talk. I don't remember much more about that dream. Other than it was really cool to be able to have a conversation with my cat.

Dream Interpretation

The Dream Dictionary defines skydiving:

To dream that you are skydiving, represents your high ideals. Sometimes you may need to compromise these ideals and be more realistic of your expectations.

And the laundry aspect:

To dream that you are doing your laundry, suggests that you are cleaning up your act or change your image. You are concerned about how you appear to others.

To dream that you are having someone else do your laundry, denotes gossip.

To dream that you are sorting the laundry, indicates that you are trying to understand your own feelings and sorting your attitudes.

To see a laundry chute in your dream, suggests that you are not allowing others dictate how your should look or act. Your mind is your own. Alternatively, it signifies your exploration of your unconscious and/or negative emotions.

I'm not sure if any of those really relate to picking up your laundry in the sky.

I had this weird dream last night, so I thought I'd add a category for it. I'll try to recap some of my stranger dreams that I remember, too.

Last night I dreamt I was a skydiver.

Now that's not particularly weird, but I'm not really an adrenaline junky, and have never really had a desire to even go skydiving.

On one of my jumps, I was picking up my laundry as it was falling with me. That was a little strange.
