What are dreams made of …

… and do they mean anything? 

The other night I dreamt I was swimming in the great blue ocean and came upon a prawn who talked to me … yes, he did … he bellowed out a great big heeellllllllllllooooooooooooooooooo, complete with a gurgle like he had water in his throat.  And I saw right into the back of his throat too.  Some dream, huh?  I woke up feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland and a small part of me wished that a bunny with a stop watch would run across my room.  But alas, reality sunk in and I headed to the bathroom to get ready for another day at work which was undoubtedly filled with thoughts of what dreams meant?

I mean I'm as rationale as the next person, I believe in God even though I haven't quite met him in person … that's what faith means, right?  But I pretty much draw the line on ghosts … hang on … I'm not saying they don't exist, just that I reckon they have better things to do than freak the living out.  And for some strange crazy reason, I completely believe in aliens … hmmm … that could be a direct result of being an X-Files fan. 

Anyway, back to dreams … I've actually had dreams that made me think twice about the role of them.  Once I dreamt of a dear friend bawling her eyes out and being really upset.  The next morning I called her and she was going through probably the toughest break up ever and I haven't heard anything about it up to that point.  And I remember when another friend told me that he and his wife were expecting their first baby, I went on to have a dream that his daughter was a flower girl at my wedding, except they were in the first trimester and didn't know if it was going to be a son or daughter.  Well, lo and behold 8 months later they had a little Victoria 🙂

I'm not saying I'm psychic but who knows what dreams are made of and what they're meant to say … I'm sure there's a Freud book out there about it but for now I'll take the fantasy bits and hope all my dreams are made of great scenes like that:-

Christmas is officially over …

… and I'm not sure what to quite expect for 2007 … well, I know I'm going to turn 32 … and if it's anything I've learnt in the last 32 years, it's that plans never quite happen as you plan for them … so my thing for the new year is to enjoy each day as much as I can 🙂

And enjoy good memories like the last day in Kelowna and I saw an amazing sunrise … it's time like this I wished I had a better camera but you get the idea.  So here's to a wonderful 2007 filled with love, peace and happiness for everyone!!

Survivor Frenzy

I just finished watching episode 11 of Survivor: Cook Islands.  Can you believe it's the 13th season of Survivor?  I stop watching after season 3 … it was in Africa or something, I can't remember except that it got boring … you know, the same strategies, the same kind of stereotypical cast … so I stopped watching it … that and I moved into my own place without a TV :P  However, with season 13, Mark Burnett decided to divide the tribes by race and that intrigued me… I started reading about it, what happens in each episode … as a social project I thought it was pretty interesting.  After two episodes, they merge them all and it was like a normal survivor and I thought … ok, I'm going to stop watching it. 

Then I was in LA for work and watched the recap episode as well as some pivotal episodes, mainly just the MUTINY one which practically sucked me into this season.  Mostly because of the diverse range of tribe members … many of which were picked off the streets.  Other than that, the producers basically did the usual things to stir up drama.  So I think for the newer seasons, they should really keep up this MO – mix up the cast with people who applied with people who really don't have a clue about the series and in all honesty don't quite care for it but are game to try anything for a million dollars.  Opens the game play to a wide opportunity of new strategies :)  For anyone who's watching it currently watching it on channel 5, don't miss episode 8 … you so won't regret it.  It brings new meaning to the David and Goliath.

Ok, I'll 'fess up here's the reason why I'm into this season too …  cute, smart and check out those abs … I'm a total ab girl and you know, he's really really sweet … or at least the version the producers choose to portray on TV.  Oh well, that's why I love crushes, celebrities or otherwise, they are exactly how you imagine them to be in your head and it never becomes real and have no chance of getting bad :)  I love crushes ;) 

In real life, I'm as lucky as I am in my head … AJM is sweet, funny, smart and best of all, kind :)  So  a girl can sometimes have her cake and eat it too … the thing is though, good things never ever lasts but hey, that's life … up and down and up and down … if not, life would be boring like the rest of the Survivor seasons … I rather take my chances with a little more excitment and great opportunities for the underdog like Suvivor: Cook Islands 🙂

Of frogs

Say an-yong-ha-sa-yo to a little Korean frog I made friends while I was in Pusan earlier this year.

I like frogs … technically my favourite animals have been dolphins, horses and dogs … hang on, I like cats too … and polar bears, pigs, manatees, otters, cows … it's safe to say I like animals 🙂

This frog helped me appreciate the amphibian species a little more.  It sat there quietly, on a third floor window sill despite my numerous attempts to stick a camera in its little face.  it even looks like it's smiling in this last picture.

Life can be as simple as you want it to be, I guess … people can throw all the spanners they want in my face and it's my choice to be bothered about it or not.

Gam-sa-ah-mi-da, Froggie!!
