I think all the medicine I've been taking is causing me to have weird dreams.

A couple nights ago, I dreamt a homeless man shot me in the leg. Anyone care to analyze that one?

Last night, I dreamt a cockroach was chasing me. It was one of those dreams where your body moves in slow motion and you can't get away. I kept trying to dodge him and he kept running straight at me. I was crying and feeling panicked. I realized the only thing I could do was kill him. I had a tissue in my hand (I do have a cold, after all) and I reached down and squashed him with it. He popped. I screamed and fainted. Then I woke up feeling clammy and scared.

I am afraid of going to sleep tonight.

Laurie you must get away for those litte cuss's before you really go off the deep end. I do want you to be yourself when I do get to meet you. :)

i had a dream when i was little about all of the sesame street characters chasing me down the street. i finally found a building that i could run into to try and get away from them. it was a bank with a revolving door. i ran in and got stuck when all of the sesame street characters stopped up the turn-style by trying to pack into the compartment behind me. Sorry i don’t know what i did to resolve that dream dilemma.

with regard to the homeless man shooting you in the leg...sorry, I got nothin'...

I may be speaking too soon, but the roach problem seems to have eased up recently. Last week we only picked up three and this week I haven't yet seen any. I credit fervent prayers.

You should use your super powers to get rid of the roaches.

I think you're enabling the roaches and/or your apartment. Trying to pretend everything is okay when it's not. "only picked up three.." That's not normal. You have a roach problem in this apartment. It's really okay to move. I think you have moving rights on this.
