I feel so unsure

okay okay okay - I am so absurdly happy about this.

our first executive meeting of the academic year for our chapter of the association of florida colleges
we are discussing big issues and throwing out ideas for the year
we are problem solving a crazy issue that someone not at our college has initiated
it is serious and interesting and active and really productive
we are all talking and participating and contributing
we are motioning and voting and actually accomplishing things
possibly one of the best meetings i've been in so far

and suddenly from somewhere
a saxophone
Wham
Careless Whispers
over and over

they must have only known the chorus
but they were getting really good at it

Is this something real that happened? Or is it one of your dreams? Cuz I could see it going either way... =o)

It did, and it was awesome. Someone at the meeting got up and shut the door, but it didn't make a difference. Saxophones are loud! At first iI thought it was Kenny G, and I was reminded of the time I went up to visit you in Seattle, but then I realized it was Wham! Or maybe he was playing Kenny G to start with and switched to Wham! I was mildly distracted by the meeting and couldn't focus completely on the music. :D

Oh! This reminds me that I had a dream last night that you and I were buying Victorian hats! You found this gorgeous Maroon velvety hat with a wide, slouchy brim. On the top it had a spot of maroon and white rabbit fur, (I know! But it worked for the hat.) and on the side it had a huge maroon flower and lots of maroon/light maroon feathers around it too. I was so jealous! The flower had a white glittery button in the middle of it. It was MEGA cool.

In the dream we had also found several plane-jane Victorian hats that we were going to decorate. And in the same store we found a HUGE amount of vintage lace, ribbon, flowers, and feathers for just a dollar! We were going to make some AWESOME hats! I was so excited! I woke up excited then I realized it was a dream. Sigh!

Lets make hats!!! =o)

AWESOME! I wanted to try making those little hats like the green one I bought at GARF. (The ones that clip on hair clips and are fairly small, you know?)

we are not allowed any more hats until we come up with a better system for hanging them. We've talked about making that small rack thing we saw up in the Amish shop in Wisconsin, but I don't want to buy the supplies until we know we have a free weekend and will make it within days. I have enough projects in waiting lying around.
