I am (not) sexy

This morning at 6:00am, I got up and went to the bathroom. While there, I examined the cuffs of my new Windstopper fleece that I bought for the Kili trip.



I was feeling happy about the stitching and construction and other aspects of design such as the cute little tab in the back. Then I realized that I should not be able to see behind my own head and that I should not be wearing my new fleece jacket at all since I ordered this lovely new jacket only three days ago, so it has not yet arrived. Also, admiring its cuffs and tabs would be impossible for another reason: I would never wear a fleece jacket to bed. Want to know what Nina sleeps in? It's the second reason I am not sexy:




Anyway there I was, in mid-realization that I was not awake.. and that since I was dreaming about peeing, I might actually be, in real life, peeing.

So I hurled myself out of bed and onto the floor, where I examined my situation and all related clothing items for any evidence of a flood. There was none. But gosh I felt stupid and when I climbed back in bed, I said a short intercessory prayer (you know I don't do those anymore) that I could get back to sleep and NOT dream about peeing or having to pee. And you know what? I couldn't get back to sleep anyway and I spent the whole day, in my nightgown, working on my budget to see if there would be any slight possible way I could cut back on work in the fall. That's right: working on my budget, in my nightgown, with my hair up and my glasses on.

You know you want me.

Have a good weekend.

Oh my God, I have totally had dreams about peeing. That's so funny cause I always wake up freaked out and worried and confused about whether I was awake or not or what happened! I don't know how you can sleep in a night gown though. I can't stand to get all tangled up in it. I have to sleep in shorts because if I sleep in anything else it just gets all twisted and bunched up around my knees. If I sleep in pants, I have to wear socks and stuff the bottoms down into my socks. So, I'm not sexy either! I've been wearing the same 3 outfits for a week it seems and I don't even match today and I went out in public and I didn't care.

I wear sweats for several days in a row. I want that nightgown.

I will steal it from you.

Ugh. I hate pee dreams. I"m always afraid too. And the ones where I'm struggling to wake up and can't.

I fully support spending the day in your p.j.'s at least one day a week. And hopefully in time I won't be associating you with my mom and her Lanz of Salzburg nightgowns.

Truth be told, I hadn't ever thought of you in that way before, but then a golden shower does sound pretty erotic...

...as long as you're not covered in pee, Nina, I'm sure you are quite alluring. That was one funky dream tho.
