Song Du Jour: Placebo "Running Up That Hill"

If I only could,
Make a deal with God,
Get him to swap our places...
You don't wanna hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I'm tearing you asunder.
There's a thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?

Strange Dream

I had the oddest dream with D in it last night. I was in a house that was full of people who were having a secret meeting--I was pretty sure they were industrial spies. Some had come dressed as pirates. They all brought their own folding chairs. I had to stand because I had no chair. The guards on the front porch had guns. One of them told me D was across the street in the darkness, but I couldn't see him. I was thinking that I wanted to see him so much. To see his face, his real face. Then the police arrived and in the chaos D grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the house. He was dressed in a black jumpsuit like a ninja. He looked like the picture he'd sent me long ago--with beard and mustache. But his hair was very short and dark. He didn't say a word. I asked for a kiss, but he wouldn't kiss me; he just shook his head, took my hand and we ran. We ended up at a rocket ship about to launch. On board there were a lot of blue canvas hammocks full of people. Only one empty hammock was left. The captain was a tall white-haired elegant woman. She told me D was wanted for questioning but I knew if we left on the ship now we wouldn't be stopped. D never said a word but we got into the one hammock left and strapped in. I was thinking that I liked sharing the hammock even if he wouldn't kiss me. I was so happy to be in his arms again. I woke up as the ship warmed up for take off.

I woke at 12:41am thinking this dream was so vivid I just had to write it down. Bizzare, huh? I haven't had D appear in my dreams in almost a year. But then it was just a year ago this week that he broke up with me. Exactly one year ago that he abandoned Valis. 

Wonder who's living there now.

Wonder what he was dreaming at 12:41 am last night.

Auri and Thor at Phat Cats

Auri and Thor at Phat Cats 03, originally uploaded by Tsai Jie.

Here's Aurelia Lionheart and Thorgal McGillivary dancing at Phat Cats last Sunday. Aren't they a scrumptious couple?

Dancing with Starman at Phat Cats

Sunday afternoons I go to Phat Cats, a lovely dance ball sim. Mostly to listen to my friend Thor DJ and hang with friends Molly and Aurelia. The last couple weeks I have found myself watching more than dancing. I'm not looking to hook up, just like to meet people from all over and chat about our SL experiences.

This last Sunday I was pleased to hear from my friend Starman, who popped in for a few minutes to catch me up on his current projects. And we got in a couple dances as well.
