I awoke with a start: I really do have a hamster to care for!!! (a frequent dream I have is of a dream hamster, and sometimes I need to care for it and nurse it to health). The hamster I am hamstersitting though is quite fat and I left him last night with a bowl full of peppers and crunchies. The household also have a bunch of fish, one of whom the family told me had died just before they left (great, who is next???) and 3 cats. One cat I won't see all week. The grey one will come out from time to time and the fluffy young orange tiger will kill me with kindness. Tiger is the one to worry about: he is accustomed to a houseful of kids and people and will be terribly sad that I am not visiting all the time. I'll hang out there later, maybe watch something good like 'Reno 911' (I don't have a TV....).
So, the dreams. Poor Lucy, a student I know, had a baby and she along with her boyfriend and a few others were with me at a hotel dining room that was terribly snooty and also hosting a republican convention, and my BIG friend was hurling insults at the republicans and we were kicked out, AFTER they emptied our wallets. 180 bucks for dinner?????
