Tw0 things I wonder about sometimes...

1) Why do I like submarine movies so much? Is there some Jungian significance or do I just like the fact that they are "there" and I am NOT? I mean, yeah, you have a bunch of men in a very physically cramped space with no resources execept what is on board and the technology of the submarine itself available to solve their problems...and there is always some sort of problem, otherwise it would not be worth making a movie about, no?

Last night Dh brough home K-19 Widowmaker. I love that one. Thus officially begins my submarine movie collection. Next I hope I get Hunt for Red October or that one about the enigma machine...

2) What do my recurring dreams mean, if anything? I know, everyone has them. My recurring dreams either feature slipping off a cliff (horrifying) or trying to save my children from a tornado (predictable) or (and this is the one that stumps me) waking up with long hair and being THRILLED about it. OK, I do think it would be cool to have long hair again like when I was a kid, but I want it to be long and gorgeous, and whenever I get my hair much past my shoulders it starts looking like what I call "hag hair". So maybe it's a desire to be young again, or a desire to have my problems solved instantly instead of working them out slowly and over time?

If you are a first born, that explains the "falling" dream. First borns usually dream about falling. Second borns about running.

The others...you probably know yourself well enough to figure out!

No, I'm a second born. But I don't do the running dreams.

I used to dream I was flying...like doing the breaststroke through the air. It wasn't fun, fast flying...just plodding along doing the breaststroke through the air. I'm sure there's not too subtle meaning in my plodding flying.

I used to dream of flying all the time when I was a kid and have done so again recently. Zooming through the air, dodging between trees and their branches...all to escape what was not good on the ground.

Pretty obvious what that's about!

About the submarines...don't know if you are familiar with the cartoon "Zits," but it's a favorite around here, about a teenager and his two parents. My son loves the cartoon, and once drew his own, where the hero asks his girlfriend if she'd like to go to the movies with him and a friend. She says, "Which one?" and guesses a lot of chick flicks, and he says, "No, U-517." The second-to-last panel shows a submarine exploding, and the last panel shows the kid saying to his best friend, "Sarah won't be joining us." I wonder if I could scan it....

Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!
