    People who think there's something wrong with you if you're NOT a racist and try to turn you into one. That boggles my mind.

    I had a dream last night that my mother had another baby. This is strange because I am 27 and an only child. I don't get it, because recently my mother has been complaining about the effects of menopause.

    You are mourning the loss of your mother's generative powers.

    Oedipus complex, obviously. You are disappointed that after killing your father to seize his thrown you won't be able to spawn to continue your legacy. Perfectly natural.

    ^you're reading too much into it. it probably means that PB's girlfriend might be pregnant. PB's mother will see it as her opportunity to be a mother again and swoop in and raise the baby as her own.

    Well the girlfriend said yesterday she is on her period, so that's not the case thankfully.

    I am listening to a woman describe how many escalators she had to take at the airport. But she doesn't say "escalator." She says "escyulator." Now I recall that I've heard others say that. Why would you say "escyulator?"

    That made me laugh, even though I am sitting in the airport among other people who might be wondering why I am laughing. Maybe they think I am crazy. But that is funny!

    I am going to say it that way from now on. It will be my new "irregardless." That and "skellington."
