Foiled!


My mad plan to fool my subconscious into thinking I quit a job I had when I was fifteen (in order to stop myself from having a recurring dream about the place) has been foiled by the post office!

Apparently the only listing for Adventures in Video that I could find is no longer valid. I knew I shouldn’t have put that return address on there. My subconscious never would have known the letter went undelivered otherwise. Drat!

The good news is that I haven’t had a dream about working at the video store since I wrote the letter, so perhaps all of this focused attention on the issue has resolved the situation in my head once and for all. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. The bad news is that today I came across the inspiration for what is sure to be my next recurring dream, since I already can’t get it out of my mind:

Edward Mordrake is claimed to be a 19th century heir to one of the peerages in England who had an extra face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night…

Oh dear god.

    HA! I went to Subway the other day and noticed that they switched up the cheese. I gave my friend a high five and then laughed that planetdan would be pleased…

    he didn’t get it.

    Man, I wonder if that 2nd face kept him up at night. Not just because of the constant wondering whether me was suffocating it if he was lying on his back, or even just the general shuddery fact that he actually HAD a 2nd face – but rather with its LAUGHTER AND TEARS. I wonder how many years of “what the fuck was THAT?!” he went through before he got old enough to figure things out? Guuuuuuuh!

    Also the descriptive blurb fails to tell us the most important thing: if it could cry, does that mean it had only tear ducts, or did it – sweet jumping jesus – have EYEBALLS???

    Okay. Now I’m officially sobbing in the corner of the shower, hugging my knees as I gently rock back and forth.
