A Dozen Chicks Were in My Pants Last Night

Literally. In my dreams.

I had a dream that I was in a grocery store and the eggs were old. [How old were they?] They were so old they were hatching into chicks. And for some reason we were trying to gather them all, but I had to shake them out of my pants. At least in my dream world they were a nice fuzzy tickly and not all beaks and claws.

The second half of the dream included more small tactile animals, a rodent, I think a gerbil, because it had a tail but wasn't too rat like, there was a parti-colored coat, pied if you will. This took place in my DAA dream location, like DAA but not. In a space like the north side of the basement library. It was a competition between groups of people. I didn't realise til the end that it was a competition to see who could eliminate the most gerbils in a given time. There wasn't any blood though which probably threw me off. The probable winner and feature of my dream was a group that had a conveyor belt with a vacuum tube with four blades that joined to open and close the tube. Very efficient. Take that Martin Luther King Jr.

Dearest Daniel,

There are several things I really never want to hear about. Your pants and what is in them and chickens.

You also are now not allowed any where near Gerbil. I think he is cuter alive.

Congratulations, you win for quickest comment on a new post. Well I spent three hours of the evening with you before going to bed, so maybe it has something to do with your company.

Daniel - Have you read the latest few items on the Spectrum Blog? Alex is posting his recent e-mail exchanges with Timothy Puko a journalist. Their conversation includes some very frank and provocative language. The topic relates to investigative reporting on the church organization. One report mentioned is in the current Spectrum Magazine. I have yet to read it (it came yesterday and is sitting on my dining-room table) though it sounds interesting.

I have now. Puko is passionate. Two things:

Puko's plea for a return to the spirit of Adventism fits nicely with Bob Rigsby in the "Featured Columns." I really liked what Bob had to say.

Their mention of the Fourth Estate in a "sevy" setting ties into the microcosm of governing you discussed with Alex in the Losing Our American Soul comment thread.

I agreed with the socratic gadfly cant of Timothy. There are scores of collegiate interns to provide a company line for every conference and union office. Give me what I won't get there.
