Fax Me Some Halibut

I tend to forget my shopping lists at home when I go to the store, so I've taken to making lists and writing notes to myself on my phone because I never forget that at home!

Anyway, today I took a look at the grocery list I'd been compiling and noticed that I'd written another page of notes to myself. I'd forgotten all about these notes. As I read, I remembered when I'd written the page. I awoke in the middle of the night while in New York and reached for my phone to write down the details of my weird dream so I could blog about it. However, since I'd typed these notes on my iPhone while half-asleep, they were less than legible and since several days had passed since I'd actually had the dream, nearly all recollection was gone.

This is what was on the note page...

Ginny movies Ellen stairs dog with doll
Little girl girl yelling at me
Older sister
Chicken in beer beerken laughing so
Doren's friend baseball cap, reading my
blog about pop bomb
Taking shower downstairs in Billy's
bathroom half painted blue
Something hatch & kill you unless you
get rid of it before 24 hours
Blue guys in bathroom
Teeeting about stalkers in bathroom

The only thing I remember at all was there was a guy who had a bunch of cubed, cooked chicken in his glass of beer. I asked him, "Beer and chicken? What is that, Beerken?" In my dream, I thought that was very clever and witty and fell off the bar stool at the island in the kitchen because I was laughing so hard. Yeah. In real life, I tell much better jokes. I think. Although beerken does start to sound kinda funny the more you say it. Beerken, beerken, beerken. It's beer! It's chicken! No, it's beerken!

Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Jerry wakes up in the middle of the night, scribbles a joke on a piece of paper and can't read or remember it the next day. "Wait a minute. Wait a minute! Fax me some halibut? Is that funny? Is that a joke?"

I want to know what the heck you had been drinking in NY!

I don't know where you got your information from but I promise you that teeeting about stalkers in the bathroom will only encourage them.

Too many parties and conversations in NY. I love it...teeeting!!! Don't try to figure it out... there's way too much going on in your head!

Funny post!

Reminds me of the things people write on Google to get to your blog. But in G rated form :)

Hey Dawn, while I wasn't asleep I often jot down stuff I want to talk about on my blog. I then forget all about it and later find the file I write in only to realize I had no idea what I was thinking it was clever here - you be the judge: (1) enough with SciFi shows showing people riding on Segways. It's not futuristic and most true nerds never bought one because they're stupid (2) put a picture of a squirrel torso and tail sticking out box of ice cream text under it reads America's #1 flavor - SQUIRREL! (3) let people know that their pillows are stealing their dreams and try to figure out a way to get our dreams back from these fluffy monsters.

See? Well, I'm thinking maybe #3 is a good topic to talk about...

Love your blog and finally got your book! Can't wait to read it!

It's really strange how that "show about nothing" comes up EVERY DAY around here... and when I lose my lists, I've lost my brains. Makes me think there weren't too many to begin with...

I had a similar situation when my wife and i were on our honeymoon in the georgious NYC. At least you make an effort to make a shopping list though, i just get yelled at when my wife gets home and realises were out of something and im the one that finished it.

The guys in the bathroom were blue from rubbing up against the half-painted walls. :-)

You have the most creative dreams. I never remember mine!
