Well I thought I was going to make a specific blog post but then stuff happened...
It was either going to be about the weird dreams I'd had last night.
I was or I was watching a woman who was married to a man (a king or a lord??) and it was somewhat old-timey. Another prince or lord of the area came to visit and he ended up forcing the woman to spend the night with him. She ended up falling pregnant but it was still hard to say who the father was. She was freaked out because she never told her husband about that night. He seemed happy as ever that she was with child. She had the slightest bump that he pressed his hands to and spoke to the child growing within, something about it carrying a piece of him (like his soul or love or something). That seemed to put her at ease so the focus wasn't so much about being the father biologically but about raising the child to become a man or woman.
Anyway, then the dream went weird in a funny way and suddenly other men showed up (one looked like a guy from the library staff) and they started playing music! Funny because the guy from the library plays upright bass in a little group of his and they tour the pubs playing late at night. So I was his Lordship take up the ominous upright bass and he started playing around with it. Someone else had an acoustic guitar and who knows what the other two played. I swear I heard them take songs like "In the Hall of the Mountain King" and put a whole other spin on it! It was a very entertaining side to the dream.
I know one of my coworkers brought in a little potted plant thing that apparently is from Costco. It has some of that decorative gravel on the top layer and there's only 3 different little cactus like plants. Very cute and clean looking. I kind of want to get one of two of them. I have a feeling I need to place the simple bonsai tree... it's just not working... it just sits there without any leaves on it and I can't get them to grow and stay! It's a shame because it had the funniest little face on it! I was assured these other little plants don't require much in the way of water or sunlight so that's good news for me! I haven't killed the Christmas cactus or the money tree I've got!
I think the reason I'm scattered here is because I saw my phone was going off with a notice and it was an email from one of the department secretaries. One of those instances where you've helped them and they remember your name and looking you up to email you directly. Well, since moving from Groupwise (internally managed) to MS Outlook (managed by MS) we've had more spam and phishing emails coming through. Maybe we always had them but filtering mail was done on our end and maybe we were doing it in such a way that these emails just didn't come through? Well the secretary is really pushing for us to do something about it but we're not exactly in the path of mail flow in most circumstances... I think it was explained that we could guide email that was sent from someone inside the organization to another person within us. As for emails that come from external sends... I think it's handled by MS... Anyway it was a somewhat stresses email to see but she's frustrated and doesn't want to spend all this time dealing with spam. On top of that when they email our queues for help, whenever we resolve the ticket it auto sends a 'how did we do' survey. I've know this was going to annoy our more frequent fliers and we can't do anything about it because it's what management wants. It just sucks because, as the front line of the department, we end up taking all the hits for this.
Now, something entirely random. Mynx likes to stare up at the ceiling and meow very loudly! She does this every day, throughout the day, while I'm here... Either she hears something or I don't know... she wants attention?

Maybe Mynx was having some random thoughts as well. I always think pets assume the vibes of their human owners.

Right now I have Luna lying on the floor to my left, maybe a foot away. Mynx is curled up on the ottoman behind me or three feet away? CATS!

Just have to love the personality of animals!

Speaking of personalities and animals! I'm sure they're each trying to help me in some way, I just can't see it yet

Awesome photies. The one of Luna is priceless! How did you manage to take it?

Excellent photos! Luna is waiting to pounce on the mouse! Mynx is saying "Yuck!, pancakes! Where is the fish?"

Luna actually trotted towards me meowing! I've never really heard her meow before. She clearly needed some serious attention so I put her on my lap and she just walked up on top of the desk. She stood there for a bit next to me before lying down. She was just trying to find a good spot to rest her head and she was trying to rub her face all over the corner of my laptop. I just carefully picked up my iPod beside me and tried to get a picture. Took a few shots since she was still moving a bit and looking around.

Luna has a voice! How cool is that.
