My bike is supposed to be working again. And hey, I drove myself to work and back today. Maybe it needs a higher idling speed or something... but it seems to love cutting out at the most inopportune moments, like when I'm pulling out of a stop sign or a roundabout in the middle of rush hour. %@#& it!!
I hate it because it distracts me and makes me do silly things and makes me feel like a bad driver. It has been so long since I've driven, and now there's a 90% chance of bad weather every time I go out; it seems I've got all my nervousness back. It's almost as if I'd never driven anywhere before. I'm starting over.
Goddess protect me; I hope I will do better tomorrow.

The rain is splattering and the wind is flickering... the candles are fluttering. But I have remembered to light them - for the first time in a long time.
Here's to even colder, greyer and wetter weather!
Happy Solstice to you all. ;)

Listening to Michael Palin say how he once tickled an elephant's tusks, or "made an elephant happy". Thinking, wow, that's amazing... But occasionally I need to remember that I've touched a tiger on the nose. With a cage between us, admittedly, but it sort of purred at me. Said 'good morning'. I've also been pounced at by a dominant-male lion. Needless to say I fell over backwards. Thank goddess for the cage! Heh heh heh.

A handful o' dreams
Big trees and hobbits and signposts not unlike the one in Narnia. Also mostly-empty tables for brass band players, and sitting down at one of the spaces to play. Carpark buildings again.
And just now I've seen a reference to fig trees in the book I'm reading, which has reminded me of the baby fig tree I saw in another dream.
Which is, by the way, the second time in one week I've had... er... fruity links. The other day I bought a persimmon, even though I know they're only pretty, but tasteless. And it was! but then in the movie I began watching, a ghost came along with a basket full of persimmons. I don't think I'm naive to think of it as a wee sign that I'm supposed to be watching/reading what I'm watching/reading. Sort of like déjà vu.
It's good to have at least such little straws to grab at, because I feel all muddled up lately, what with this depressingly wet and cold season, and many of my treasured crystals and jewellery jumping out of my hands as if they hate me. (Or maybe I've just turned into the world's worst clumsy person. >:P)

As far as I know, there's nothing preying on my mind. Nor do I feel stressed. So why am I idly chewing my lips into shreds, and why has my eyelid been twitching all day? It's starting to make me wonder if I've forgotten something stressful that I ought to be minding. Gaah!!

Gah! My hands stink of petrol. o_O
But hey, my bike's going again. Wethinks.

Oh, the joys of making a call from work and being put on hold... I get to enjoy two strains of muzak at once! Hah-ha.

Still tweaking that layout... but it'll have to wait until after work. o_O
