Last night I dreamed that I was out to dinner with a bunch of friends; my memory is hazy, because that was my first-dream and there was one after it, but it was friends I see at cons, and I know skogkatt was there, and someone who, in the dream, I knew from everyday non-convention life, who I'd decided just *had* to meet csecooney. Cooney had already left, though! So we tracked her down and introduced them, and we walked by a park where some people were racing a small black chicken and a bearded dragon. I don't know why. Neither animal seemed particularly interested. Then we got ice cream.

And then I woke up, and then I got back to sleep - and then I dreamed about Jack. I dreamed that he was dying, and so maddened by pain that he was uncatchable and inconsolable. I spent that dream running, pleading, trying to hold him.

My brain is never subtle. Most of my dreams are like this: HERE IS THE THING THAT IS BOTHERING YOU IN YOUR WAKING LIFE. No veils of meaning or hints. BAM in the face, you are terrified of losing your cat and just as terrified that he will be in agony.

He hasn't eaten since those two small victories yesterday. He peed last night, though.

Elayna and Adam are touring Green Mountain College today - tiny school tucked away in the mountains, with a good range of elementary education stuff. Tomorrow is Champlain; we thought that would be 10am, but they don't do the 10am sessions on Wednesdays, so it's 1. So they're visiting University of Vermont at 10 strictly as a timekiller and a why-not; it's not on her top 20 list, but otherwise they'd just be sitting in a Starbucks playing iPad games for hours, so why not.

*stretch* Well. I need to go at least get started answering interview questions for my Annie's Book Stop reading/signing. Then I can work on that test knitting I've been putting off for ages because I'm never alone in the house for more than 15 minutes!

My dreams are frequently just as obvious, or if there is imagery it is Captain Obvious imagery. Like I once dreamed that I started a project and then literally shot myself in the foot. I had a hole in my foot in my dream. At least we don't have to deal with all this nonsense of symbols and dream interpretation, right?

If she is looking at early childhood education, has she looked at Sacred Heart in Conneticut? They have a 5 year program that gets one their masters in education.

Well my Jewish stepdaughter is going to it and she has never felt uncomfortable there and she sings in the choir.

If she ends the tour being at all interested in University of Vermont, I have a couple of friends who went there. I could definitely pass along any questions she might have.
