A night of unsettling dream

I don’t know what it was about last night, but unsettling dreams was a part of it. I half expected to wake this morning in my bed to find myself transformed into a giant cockroach.

Nevertheless, it is a gorgeous day out. We’re talking late spring-like weather, sunny, not a cloud in the sky, driving with the car window rolled down weather. I went out to get a haircut first thing this morning. I also went to buy some new shirts. And a I did a ton and a half of laundry.

I am driving up to New York in a few hours to spend the weekend with vickyandnorm, and also with strausmouse and ryanestraus. Last time I drove up there I listened to my Autobiography playlist and got through the first 75 songs or so, taking my to just before high school. Today, I plan on beginning where I left off last time and see where it gets me.

I expect to arrive in Nanuet between 6 and 7 PM, although I’m aiming for right about 6:15 PM. I don’t know what traffic will be like on a Veterans Day, but I guess I’ll find out soon enough.
