Now this is too much to dream

I had a dream last night that I got married to Tim Blair. We went to Miami (where I had vowed to never go again or at least not until five years had passed -- there are two to go) and had the ceremony in the same dreary, swimming-pool-hued-interiored, Sixties Ultra-Moderne-styled, bland Methodysterian church (like these, only all in whitewashed concrete and aqua tile) my cousin Jane got married in in 1968. And all the bridesmaids wore aqua.

I fucking hate aqua.

Time to quit drinking so late at night.

Time to quit drinking so late at night.

... or time to start drinking even more. I suggest Balvenie 15 Y.O. single malt.

It could have been worse, you could dreamed of marrying Tony Blair.

Thanks, Ralf... now could you come over and clean the coffee off my screen?

Hey, I was thinking it would be more fun to turn my blog into a full-time blogosphere scandal sheet. You've given me my first headline: "TIM BLAIR, BIGAMIST!". Now I just need someone to supply me with those unflattering, paste-face, nose-picking surprised-expression photos the tabs always manage to get of celebs.

Wait, Blair is married, right? How about "ANDREA HARRIS, HOMEWRECKING SLUT!". No? no problem. I'll just run with "ANDREA HARRIS, DREAM SLUT".

Beats pretending to be a serious blogger.

There's obviously not a lot of margin between drinking too much and not drinking enough, dear.

Eek! I'm having visions of swimming pool colored "ultra-modern" 60s interior decor.

I had a weird dream about a blogger last night but I can't remember all that much about it so I've been trying to decide whether it's worth mentioning. It had a much more pleasant color scheme - similar to your lovely page.

Strange...about two weeks ago, I dreamed that I met Kim DuToit in the parking lot of the Base Exchange at Brooks AFB; I recognized his truck (?!) and we said howdy and went on our separate ways.

why didn't you dream of marrying Kim while you were at it?

Posted by: Ralf Goergens at April 10, 2003 at 07:46 PM

If I'm not mistaken, Mr. Blair has a significant other. Pretty sure she's Italian, which means she probably packs a knife -- so watch out!

But...but my eyes are aqua...

Btw, Kim, is your screen clean yet or do I really need to swim over the Atlantic just for a brief wiping?

Hey, I dreamt last night that Saddam and his chums had acquired Klingon cloaking technology and were hiding themselves from the troops. Prescience or the random madness of a disordered brain?

Wot's wrong with aqua? It's so Miami Vice.

Aqua is best used in small doses, preferably no more than a total of 18 square inches per large room or 3 square inches per article of clothing, unless it's underwear and for that you can wear whatever the hell you like. Any of you guys wear aqua satin boxer shorts?

Posted by: Lynn S at April 11, 2003 at 10:25 AM

So NOW you say you hate aqua. After all the trouble I went to!

I suppose you also hated the Harley Davidson theme at the reception? And the deep-fried wedding cake?

Man, I wish I'd got you to sign that pre-nup ...

Posted by: tim at April 11, 2003 at 11:41 AM

Mmmmm... deep-fried cake...

Posted by: Andrea Harris at April 11, 2003 at 01:40 PM

Well I wear aqua satin boxers, on the rare occasions when I wear underwear at all. They have to be boxers. Those tanga things can cripple a man, no matter how flattering they look when you're posing in front of the mirror.

I hate aqua too. (I also hate orange, but I wasn't going to mention that while your site was orange.) Is there anything uglier than a Bird of Paradise in an aqua vase (besides spiders and snakes, of course)? Happy to see the green and white!

I still don't see how this can be used as an arguement against late night drinking.
