I'm Dreaming....

Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives. ~William Dement

Last night I dreamed that DD had found a caterpillar. She kept telling me it was a Tiger Swallowtail, and we needed to get maple leaves, but the pillar she held was black and red with knobs and bumps all over it.

I asked her if she was certain it was a Tiger Swallowtail, at which point I got the "Duh, Mom" look.

Funny thing was part of my brain knew it wasn't, but my dream-self totally bought into it. Of course, upon wakening, I had to know what that other pillar was.

Here is a real Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar:

Here is what DD was holding in my dream, a Pipe-Vine Swallowtail:

I'll give YOU a "Duh, Mom" look.


Hey.... got a cool blog? Have a friend with a cool blog? Check out the contest Maria Zannini is having in her quest to find and highlight cool blogs!


I wrote another 1000 words on "Now and Forever" yesterday. It was good to sit and write. I need to do a search of horror movies, though, because Cori is going to refer to her soon to be MIL by a variety of names, most recently "The Mom of the Black Lagoon".

Any thoughts?


You Are a Corn Dog

You are lively and carefree. You are playful, and you enjoy food that is fun!

You are easily delighted. The smallest pleasures in life make you quite happy.

Whenever there's a party, you're not far from it. You live for the good times.

You are an engaging and interesting person. You make an excellent impression and find friends easily.

I got the same thing and it is sooooo not me.

I've always wondered why our dream selves will accept or do things we wouldn't do in real life.

PS Thanks for the shout-out! I am discovering all sorts of new blogs so far.

That's great about the 1,000 word count on your book. Congrats!

You Are a Chili Dog

You are wild and a little unpredictable. You have a zany side to you.

It would be an understatement to say you live on the edge. You pretty much ignore the edge!

You have a spicy approach to life, and it's only getting hotter. There is nothing dull about you.

You push yourself on a regular basis. You know what you are capable of, and you refuse to wimp out.
This is SO not me.

Have a good Sunday.

I always find Dream Logic amusing. :)

I got "Corn Dog" too and it doesn't fit me either. LOL!

Glad to hear you're doing so much writing. Have you tried IMDB for lists of horror movies?
I received Corn Dog as well. Definitely not me. (I don't even like hot dogs.)

I hope you had a nice day!
