is it time to dye my hair red?

Had a dream this morning that I was driving a bus down one of those a-roads which sometimes have three lanes and sometimes two. Debra was driving the bus behind me so I had to be extra careful. Then this guy pulled out of a junction ahead of me, drove up the wrong side of the road and then pulled a fast turn to join a centre lane traffic queue almost literally right under my wheels! Arseholes! It continued in this vein for a bit, and when I got into unexpectedly encountering a man riding his wheelchair down the middle of the road on an otherwise undemanding left turn I gave a great grumbling sigh and woke up. Six-thirty in the morning. Stupid brain! I am able to sleep in this morning!

Bzzzzoink. Breakfast was groggy enough I absentmindedly put two spoons each of sugar and coffee. Clang! So I scraped most of the extra coffee out, put extra milk in and said nothing. Extra caffeine is all for the good, right?

The icy blasts seemed to have lessened so I went out and removed the bubble-wrap protector from my baby magnolia tree (my mother insisted I do something for it). I'm awake now! Bloody freezing out there! I decided to leave the grass overgrowing the fuschia, it can do a little insulation work. The silver grass has gone a shade of blighted brown, I think it may be a frost casualty.

In other news I have a pink phone, just like the one in eXistenZ. Hopefully it'll do less of the failing at random thing than my current one. And a black hoodie with little silver skulls but it's not my fault! I had to go into New Look, it was cold!

More news from magical canadaland! Oooh, that Dan Mitchell takes a mean baby photograph! Julia (mother) and Oliver (baby) are both doing well, congratulations are due, etc.

I've ordered party barbecues for the weekend! I laugh in the face of seasonal temperature variations!

P.S. Mardou, Ellen, I have my whores now! They were only delayed. Is it OK if I draw myself with a snake?

Oh, god, I hope it wasn't all my talk of non-driving geekboys etc.

Funnily enough though last night I had a very vivid dream. Considering I went to sleep thinking about technology, by rights I should have been dreaming of machines and robots and things, but actually I dreamt about badly leaky roofs, and volunteering to make loads of sandwiches, and then after making the sandwiches worrying about whether there was enough choice for the vegetarians. I think the house with the leaky roof where I was making the sandwiches was something to do with Lady Di and my boss, who were inexplicably married to each other.

I'd be worried if Debra was driving right behind me too.

I was wondering about the basis for which people might dream about me driving behind them... ...but I was too polite to mention that.

The thought was more along the lines of OMG I HAD TO BRAKE REALLY FAST THERE AND DEBRA'S RIGHT BEHIND ME!

The guy in the wheelchair might be my deranged friend JC, who often has weird dreams himself.

He had very short hair and a mad glint in his eyes. Sound familiar?

Mad glint, deffo, and he often shaves his head in summer...
I sometimes wonder if the strangers we see in dreams are random 'real' people on their own nocturnal travels...

Back to the important questions
Let's see, we've had green and blue recently....I guess red's due a turn.

A hoodie with skulls? Did I miss that?

I was too busy showing you the phone. Will be wearing it to the pub tonight, you can see it then.

Oooh I saw the skull hoodies (also dresses, T shirts, plimsolls) but decided they weren't really me and plumped for lovely slate blue/grey striped hoody instead (not exactly the work top I went in for, but that's New Look for you). On you however they will be a great success.

I looked at the stripy ones, too -- they were nice!

I love it, and it's just in time for cold snap too - may post piccy once it's washed and I wear it again.

Oh, I hope I can attend the barbecue. I've been beset upon by a nose thats so runny its practically sprinting a marathon.

Saw this post before the pub, skimmed it and the whores distracted me from news of the baby, like some kind of whore-fnord.

Somehow you've channelled a typical day of Detroit traffic, right down to the wheelchair guy in the middle of the street, something I have to dodge surprisingly frequently.

Lovely seeing you and Damian Saturday, Jeremy! I like the live snake idea - but then, what's not to like? :)
BTW, I like Paul Gravett in the back of your owl mask icon...or am I merely seeing things? Until BST....best, Ellen
PS Apropos of our conversation about cross-dressing, naval drama The Sea Wolf is serialized this week on BBC 7...so far we have a shipwrecked lady writer, but lady voices (barely disguised) among the crew foretell a more complicated narrative....I'm staying tuned (if that's a verb, and not just a command)

And hell yeah!
