Geek Survives Ides, Welcomes Spring, and Dreams of Nut Meat

Wow.  I found my blog!  Cool.

Spring has sprung here in Texas and Evil Twin and I are suffering from spring fever.  This fever must have affected my sleep patterns as my dreams have been incredibly strange lately.

One night I was having the typical "fear of failure" dream where I signed up for college courses, somehow forget to attend them, and it's time for the finals.  Ugh.  While I'm having this dream, I'm telling myself that I have this dream a lot.  Within this dream, I've lost my car in the parking garage.  I approach the stairs to go down to the parking area and when I emerge, I'm in a youth rally.  I repeat this process over and over again, visiting non-functional toilets along the way.

I finally got up and took care of some business in the loo and at least that non-functional toilet dream went away.  I don't know what to think about the other dream (s).  WAS it spring fever?  Or was it the wine?  Or was it the wine and the banana nut bread?

Ugh. Never again. Not a good mix (nuts).

Later in the week I noticed the conflict between my running shoes had escalated.   Sheesh.  You can't let them rest anywhere near each other without them fussing over who has the best heel or laces or shine or....

Big-Heel-Silver-Blue sticks out his tongue, 
mocking Shiny-Lower-Heel's attempts at punching.

HOLY KEEP YOUR LACES ON!  I wish they would get over themselves.

With all this craziness, I think I've lost my nutmeats gone nuts.  I received this photo in an email:

Yep.  That explains the lapses in thought and coordination I've been having.  I havn't gone "nuts".  I am nuts and I'm a light snack.


Or maybe it's just that my birthday is Wednesday.  

I've decided that I'll be 35 instead of quite a few years older than that.    You can do that, right?

Am I the first to wish you happy birthday? Woo Hoo!

Hope you have a great geeky 35th (tee hee!) birthday!

injaynesworld said...

Absolutely, you can do it. It's only a number.

I've decreed 60 to be the new 40! Happy Birthday!

Unknown said...

Happy, uh, er, 35th Birthday! hahahha! You are too funny. Yup, age is just another form of measurement that can be adjusted to fit your lifecycle. I think Evil Twin is clouding your mind.

Um Reffie? Dreaming of non-functioning terlets is not a dream.

It's a freakin' NIGHTMARE!

hee hee hee

And of course we can celebrate your 35th b-day! Of course we can! *wink, wink*

Tomorrow, tomorrow, your b-day's tomorrow! It's only a day away!

Will there be cake?

@Deb - Thanks. Yay! 35 it is.

@Jayne - Thanks. Yep. I'll be 40 at 60. Sounds good.

@Lauren - Thanks. Ah, so it's the twin that's causing the problems. Hum.....I will straighten that girl out.

@Quirky - Thanks. Cookies. Cookies. Cookies. I'm making them. All toilets go!

Marissa said...

Happy Birthday! You'll always be ReformingYoungGeek. And if anyone tells you otherwise, just stick your tongue out at them.

I missed your birthday by 22 minutes.


Happy belated birthday.

I'm such a loser.

ReformingGeek said...

@Marissa - That's right. Pffft on them!

@Dana - You're right. You ARE old. :)

@Mike - Quick! Back-up time and try again.

Go Big-Heel-Silver-Blue!!!

Sorry..showing my age.

Happy birthday!! Anyone who can capture a running shoe battle is forever young at heart!!! (-:

Madge said...

Sorry I missed your birthday, I somehow missed this post too till today. Hope it was great and ET didn't drink you under the table.

Devon said...

I love the shoes fighting over who's better! It makes me think of Bacon. Sentient shoes... who knew? heh

Ivy said...

My son's birthday is on Wednesday too! You totally can stay 35 for as long as you want! I've been 27 for at least a year long than I really was 27 (notice I say at least). :)

Have a VERY happy birthday! We'll be having cake with you!!!

ReformingGeek said...

@Mrsblogalot - Thanks! Shoes! Sigh. You can't take them anywhere!

@Madge - My birthday was great! Thanks. ET was getting out the jello shots before I stopped her!

@Devon - My shoes can be quite a feisty pair!

@Ivy - On second thought, I'll be 28. Thanks.

happy BD!! Once you hit 25 yr you're allowed to do and be any age you I'm going to have nightmares about those cannibalistic peanuts! geez...

I've started posting my manuscript again, and I hope to continue until the entire book has been placed on my blog. This way, at least someone will get to read it.

You know in London some toilets really are non functioning. Like they have them on the street, these metal domes and you pay a pound to pee and the electronic door flies open. But when you're 'on the throne' sometimes the door whizzes open and you are gawped at by loads of passing tourists etc. Nightmare. Be pleased you don't live in the UK and only dream of these things!

ReformingGeek said...

@Wonder Wye - Thank you! Sorry about the nightmares. Nom. Nom.

@Dana - I'm so proud of you for writing a book!

@Roxy - Oops. That would scar me for life. :)

Happy 21st Birthday. It's 21, right???

Second, where are you!!! You used to be most loyal commenter and I could mark my watch by your arrival. I miss you on my blog and I miss your daily posts here. Come back to blogland soon, my friend.

I'm about six weeks out from the Cleveland Marathon. Training still going well - no injuries to report.

ReformingGeek said...

@Joan - Thanks. It's good to see you back here!

@Anya - Thanks. Welcome to the madness. I'll stop by soon.

@Constant - Yay! I'm glad your training is going well.
