Two blokes in skinny ties hitting each other

Sdtrk: ‘Silver sands’ by Stereolab

Sometimes when I oversleep, my subconscious tends to get all crazy. Of course, I mean moreso than usual.
I’ve just awakened after having a dream that Franz Ferdinand‘s Alex Kapranos was half-jokingly teaching me how to box. Now Franz Ferdinand’s music is pretty fab, but somehow I don’t really picture Alex being the next Sonny Liston. So he’s probably at about the level of boxing skill I could muster, frankly

    I have wierd dreams too, usually about being something other than my normal human self. Go fig.

    Honestly I dont know if I have ever heard any of Franz Ferdinand’s stuff.

    You’ve possibly heard them at some point, as their tunes have been in telly adverts, videogames, and etc, as befits the spirit of the times. They’re quite good! They’re a rare contemporary indie band that don’t make me want to seal up my ears with Quikrete whenever I hear them.

    I dreamt I was a bunny once! Or there might’ve been a Playboy bunny involved. I, err, failed to take notes.

    I often have dreams where I sleep with different celebs. Most of them I’m not even slightly interested in. Like George Clooney.
    I make ‘Do You Want To’ on DDR my bitch. My friend and I used to crank that song up and do a frantic ‘running man’ to it in Soffes and Uggs.
    Because we’re losers with nothing else to do…

    Lately I’ve been having dreams with a reoccuring theme. That is, people have stopped by my house uninvited and I’m struggling to hide my dolls! All the while thinking “Gads, it would be so much easier just to let them find them and be done with it.”

    Sigh. Would life be simpler, or would it open a new can of worms?

    George Clooney; now he’s not that uncommon of a dream/fantasy partner. I would be worried if you had said Orville Reddenbacher.

    O gods, DDR. I suck so much at that game that I was warned by my doctor that if I ever made an ill-advised attempt to play it again, it would kill me where I stood. On the occasions when the lads and I visit Ann arbor, goshou, SafeT, and ZG tear it up on the DDR machines, whilst Steph and I wander over to the L.A Machineguns game and play that until we run out of quarters. Then we go home, and play more videogames. 🙂

    Mahtek –
    Hrrm. Well, as musician/performance artist Genesis P-Orridge once mentioned: he doesn’t have any secrets, that way, people can’t blackmail him. But in your case, it depends on the people that come round! If you have coworkers stopping round, it might be problematic, as it could get leaked to management, who are probably the sort of tossers who enjoy getting people fired. But as far as everyone else — close friends, relatives, etc — personally, I don’t think you should worry about hiding your Dolls. Technically, they should know who you are and love you anyway, so it shouldn’t matter; and if it shatters their fragile ideas of who you are, then they’re ultimately the type of person that you don’t need in your life.

    Run some tests! I remember breaking the news to Tsukihime that I had a Doll in my life — we’d known each other for about a little over a year, and this was a good six months before she became a roommate. I expected her to freak out and mace me for twenty solid minutes, but she was open-minded enough to take it quite well. ‘If I were a lonely single guy, I’d think about buying a Doll of my own, too,’ she said. Keep in mind, too, that she’s not ‘out there’ in any way — in fact, I had to inform her what a fetish was! — she’s just a very open-minded and accepting person who could appreciate both the artistic aspect of Dolls, as well as their emotional and sexual benefits. So you never know!
    And if the person you mention your lasses to isn’t that accepting, that’s when you mace them for twenty minutes. 🙂

    George Clooney is not at all my type. I like thin geeky guys with long hair.
    I’m weird
