Wife created a spooky meal for us today, Goulish Spaghetti & Eyeballs! It was cheesy and delicious, and quite creative to boot. It turned out exactly like the picture on the recipe card. About halfway through my meal, I inquired to my wife as to what made the spaghetti black? I know that spinach noodles are green, and tomato noodles are red, but what do they add to the noodles to make them black? She handed me the package. "Squid Ink" it read. Ugh. Suddenly I felt as if I could taste fish in every bite, even though I knew that wasn't the case before I made this discovery. Of course as soon as the children heard this, they lost ALL interest in finishing their meal. One might say that lunch was therefore a rousing success. Even my wife wouldn't eat another bite.
Two nights ago I dreamed I was hired to work for the government in their "Central Intelligence" division. It was a small group of people, each with their own talents, working as a team with a team lead. Some of the technology was older, and some was not even on the civilian market yet, but these guys were bright. And I was thrilled that I was finally able to settle into a job which befit my unique experience. At one point a photograph was brought in and the team was asked to identify three bright spots on the image. I suggested that a near-infrared optical device was used and created a trihedral return. The group laughed and the team lead said, "Well, he's new here." And explained that it was tea-candles. Hrm.
And to counter my egotism of landing the perfect job in Central Intelligence, last night I dreamed drax0r and I worked at Love's Truck Stop. Our responsibility was to clean the restrooms on all three floors of this multi-level facility. Trucks came in at two levels, depending on which side of the building you were on, and we were often accused of being perverts and low-lifes when the customers acknowledged our presence. I was trying to be helpful and courteous, but the customers wanted nothing to do with me, so I just continued to clean the bathrooms. Such was my lot in life.
I have no idea what any of this means.
