This is the part where you disown me...  
I had a bizarre semi-work-related dream this weekend, which started off with coding, bug-fixing and sailboating (!), and ended with my taking retirement and requesting the coporate bonus of 150 sheep (talk about random). But hey, free sheep! At worst, I figured I could sell them for their "meat." (!)

I traveled back to Oregon, SO happy to be returning home, but the second day I was there, the sheep arrived—while I was still staying at a hotel, with no immediate plans to buy a house or anything. The sheep were all roaming around outside, and I was worried they'd wander off or get hit by cars. I realized I'd have to buy grazing property ASAP—most likely near Salem, an area I don't especially like—and how on earth had I ever thought I could be a sheep farmer?

That was about when I woke up. It sure beats the dreams of walking to work and back (30 miles each way). :O

When not dreaming insane dreams, I ran, bicycled, collected stuff to donate to Goodwill, read Battle Creek fanfiction and wanted more of it, saw Kingsman: The Secret Service, watched John Wick (10 minutes of plot and two hours of revenge action, though it has both Dean Winters and Willem Dafoe, so that's something), tried to go hiking and failed (access closed due to insufficient parking), and then BLAM—the weekend was over. :(

What a blur. How did yours go?

Once I got over the silliness of John Wick, I just sat back and enjoyed the hell out of Keanu. I like the high-saturated commix feel to so many of the modern action films. I thought it, ultimately, was successful. (Or maybe I just lust for Reeves so hard....that I would and do watch him in anything!)

Long holiday weekend here, I went one direction, D went another, and when we re-connected Monday evening we were wiped out and in bed by eight! :)

Will you ever move back to Oregon? For reals?

I don't mind Keanu, though I don't fangirl him. It was a highly entertaining movie (the whole middle, at the hotel/nightclub, was really visually stylish), and I liked the dry humor quite a bit. :) Mindless fun, all the way around.

I would like to retire to Oregon, sooner rather than later-- in the Portland area, where two of my sisters live and which has always been my favorite part. I miss the greenery and the mountains, I miss the culture. I seriously would not want to live in Salem, though.

And definitely no sheep, free or otherwise. ;)

Lol, got to love those weird dreams.

How was Kingsman?

Had a good bank holiday weekend, had some of my cousins round.

There's nothing like having a panic-thought in a dream along the lines of, "NOooo! The sheep are too early!"


The Kingsmen was much more fun than I expected, though there were some references to anal sex near the end that were really out of place. Definitely entertaining!

Bank holidays or any other excuse for a 3-day weekend are SO welcome. :) Are your cousins semi-local, or do they live farther away?

"NOooo! The sheep are too early!" LOLOLOL

Cool, I really want to see it at some point.

They're quite local but we're all so busy we never get to see each other. I think we'd probably make more effort if we were further away.

sheep! that's so odd and random but so entertaining. well, i think it's entertaining, but i didn't have a dream about suddenly acquiring a lot of sheep.

baaa. :D

my weekend was marked by a lot of eating out. >.< good food, but after a while i just wanted to have dinner in my own house.

It was an incredibly bizarre dream, I'll say that. Why sheep? WHY???

Sounds like you had a great weekend with your family, though. :) Just the one sister? Any nieces/nephews?

just the one sister, no nieces/nephews. which is too bad, since my sister kind of wants kids and i kind of want to be the weird aunt.

You make an awesome weird aunt! An awesome mother, too, I think, but :(

Why does life not bend to our will?

Sheep. Love it.

Who knew free sheep could be so much trouble? :O
