I was going to post something of significance here but I can't remember what. Uhhh...

Oh yeah! When I went back to school yesterday I had 2 or 3 people tell me that on Tuesday night - the night I left - my room mate got extremely drunk and puked in our neighbor's closet. I guess she doesn't even remember drinking. As well, according to Sarah, when she walked in our room Wednesday morning, she noticed there was no air mattress on the floor and my bed was not messy. So she asked my room mate, Annemarie, where Jason slept. Aparently, he slept in her bed. ...And so did she. Whuuuuut? (but nothing happened out side of actual sleep, I guess)

She's the one who always babysits all the other drunks. Had I not gone home, something tells I would have been the one babysitting. Harrharr.

Anyways, so yeah, it's Spring Expo weekend and everyone's staying at Ridgetown, except for myself, who went home promptly after class last night.

Since it's Spring Expo weekend, in Floral Design we were supposed to make corsages but since I wasn't going I got to make whatever the hell I wanted. I made a pretty pretty flower crown~ You can see it on my dA, here. Yeah. Took me three hours. It was sweet.

I finsihed up my flower crown, the girl in our class who is a photographer took pretty pictures of it for me/it on me, and we had fun.

Then I went home and got food. And played Rock Band. Then I slept.

I was so happy because last night Zetsu slept on my bed, which he hasn't done in weeks. It made me happy inside. Then I realized that my cousin Steve was sleeping on my couch, therefore my dog could not, so that's probably the only reason he slept on my bed. ;_; I feel so much less important now.

I hate not being home most of the time. Zetsu hardly spends time with me, aside from when he wants to play. He doens't even come when I call him any more. ;_;

In equally sad news, Travis' latest post made me feel really, REALLY bad about my art, I mean, because if his is considered crappy than what about mine? I'm so much worse off than he is. ;_; I suddenly feel so self concious about my drawings. ;_;


I had a dream.

I actually fucking dreamt.

I never dream!

and in my dream... now this is weird shit... Jimmie - you all know Jimmie, right? My steampunk character with the pretty long brown hair? Yeah? Good. - was a pirate.

That's right, good, respectable, kind-hearted, steam engine mechanic Jeremiah was a pirate. Whuuuut?

Anyways. For some reason he was like, a dog, and whenever Mareka (my blonde steampunk character) cried he'd turn back into people-Jimmie, but only until sunrise. Well, since she never cries, he was stuck as a dog for years and years, and for some reason I guess he was supposed to be dead? But anyways. So she's like, mid-20s by now and for some reason I don't even think existed she cried. And he turned into people. And for some reason he was on a pirate ship (that kept switching, inbetween "scenes" of my dream, from being traditional pirate-ship to steampunk pirate-ship, as did everyone's attire). And when he was a people he was like "holy shit I'm like, not a teenager any more D:". yeah. And then for some reason, Mareka, who was like, crying at home in the last scene, was now a prisioner on this ship, along with the rest of my good-guys main cast. Except for some reason Aerron and Angelina were still younger, and their kid Blake wasn't there, but their youngest child, still unnamed (because I haven't finished making them/naming them/haven't used them yet (it was one of the twins)) was also there.

And every day, the pirate crew would throw one of my charaters over board. And for some reason Jimmie was stuck human, and nobody recognized him? ...Well, when he did turn people, he grew a beard so they wouldn't. aparently bearded!Jeremiah =/= Jeremiah. Anyways. So Jeremiah/Jimmie was like "oh noes, I need to save them, but how?" so he noticed a nearby small tropical island thing. And he figured, "Okay, all my friends that are getting chuked over board are swimming there." And I guess he figured this because Mareka got thrown over board first, a few days prior to this discovery of his, and she wasn't dead yet. He somehow knew she wasn't dead, but I don't know how. Anyways.

So the pirate crew sends a small load of people to the island every day to gather food/supplies and stuff. And Jimmie realizes "Okay, they're not actually here to kill off my peeps, but they're gathering supplies. Making these guys walk the plank is just a bonus, for entertainment value." or something. I dunno. Anyways, all of my characters that were captives make it to the island, even the two year old kid of Aerron and Angelina's. wtf. Anyways. So all along Jimmie has been blending in as a pirate and getting buddy-buddy with the captain.

Eventually, in order to save his friends, he comes up with a cool idea. He goes to the captain and tells him something like "There's people on board who are planning a mutiny," because there were, but he never talks to them so how he knew I have no idea, and for some reason he said it in pirate-speak and how Jimmie would be able to talk like a convincing pirate I know not, and the captain was all like "orly?" and Jimmie was all "yarly" (I'm making this shit up). And it winds up the captain is all like, "omg this kid is awesome. I totally trust/like him. He's a great, loyal pirate." (oxymoron lol).

So the captain agrees to Jimmie's plan.

Here's Jimmie's plan: he convinced the captain to let him grab a few loyal crew members and all of the key members of the mutiny, go to the island for the last supply run - which was schedueled before the last person got thrown overboard (which was Aerron, I think, but it kept switching between being him and his wifey Angelina. In the end it was Aerron, anyways.) - but he got the captain to change it so they BROUGHT the last person to the island to be killed on this supply run. So anyways, Jimmie sneaks out early morning and takes one little boat that's towing another little boat all the way to the island. The captian watches him, amused, for no particular reason. He goes back with just one boat. Time rolls around for the last trip out, and for some reason the last person to be thrown over board actually isn't Aerron, but his and Angelina's yuongest children (now they're both there, and neither of them are overboard wtf), the twins.

So the twins are loaded in the boat along with the most loyal and most disloyal crew members, and off to shore they row~!

As soon as they get there Jimmie's like "btw I'm not here to kill the chrildens" and he pulls out his sword (which is actually canon! he does have one in the novel! But why it shows up now and not earlier... oh, PS, for some reason his beard is gone now) and just kills all the pirates! yaaay! And for some reason all the other MCs are there now. And then I realized he brought the other boat over earlier for a chance of escape, once they kill the pirates they can just row back to... er, wow, Jimmie, good plan, where the fuck are you going to go in that tiny boat. But anyways, good thing he brought it, because for some reason even though he killed all the pirates he brought with him the boat they came in is gone. So they're going to take the other boat away! But then out of nowhere it was just Jimmie and Mareka and it was night (even though five seconds earlier it was day) and he was like "btw when the sun rises I'll be a dog again" and she was like "oh, that sucks. That's okay you're just a ghost anyways." because aparently, she still thinks he's dead. And then depressed!Jimmie is all like "yeah I'm just a ghost" and then somewhere around there I woke up and was like

WTF! That wasn't even cool. What a retarded dream.

So I'm going over it in my head and trying to make the plot logical, or at least more smooth. and that damnned ship needs to stay steampunk. But anyways. I don't like dog!Jimmie and I don't like bearded!Jimmie and I don't like depressed!Jimmie and I don't like pirate!Jimmie. And I don't like crying!Mareka. And I don't like my dream's inability to make up it's mind. KEEP THE SHIP THE SAME. STOP SWITCHING AROUND WHO'S THERE AND WHO ISN'T. STOP MAKING THE CHARACTERS SWITCH SPOTS. STOP MAKING THINGS DISAPPEAR.

Omg. Seriously. It felt like drunken brainstorming for some hideous PotC/my novel crossover crack-fic that was planned within a whole two seconds and written without making a solid plot or working out the details. It wasn't even entertaining. It pissed me right the hell off.

Now I know why I don't dream, my dreams infuriate me with their retardedness. Seriously. If it was an actaul person that stood before me and told me all this, I would have a hell of a time trying not to scream at them to shut the fuck up and I would have an even harder time trying not to slap them, or punch them. Because it's seriously so infuriatingly retarded that I hate it. Augh.

I thought that was a really cool dream!! The most hilarious line in your whole explanation was: "and the captain was all like "orly?" and Jimmie was all "yarly"" HAHAHAHAHA!!! rofl.

Dreams with your characters are always the best, no matter what happens in them. Yours sounded very epic.
