I have interesting dreams...
Last night I dreamed I wanted to subscribe to a plant data base website that charged a fee. I read all the directions carefully, then took a butternut squash, placed it an exact measured distance from my computer (had to specify computer type, OS, etc to get the distance correct) then hit a key command. The squash disappeared, and I was credited one butternut, this weight, organic == this long of a subscription to the site. Smaller squash, or not organic would have gotten me less time.
Now THAT'S a permaculture barter system!!
I hope someone can make it happen on this planet!!  


I often hate to wake up to a world where I can't easily make my dreams reality, SUCH fun stuff in them!!

I want your dreams. I always dream of mundane things like doing the dishes, and then, when I wake up, I'm so disappointed that the dishes aren't done.

I read a book (don't recall what book, it had a lame plot) the premise was people who dreamed neat stuff had their dreams recorded and other people could experience their dreams. Then it got lame, it was basically reality tv, and porn type dreams, a few flying or creative. Plot was lame. But the idea there, getting paid to share your dreams, I could get rich. I have the most odd dreams of anyone I know, all totally vivid and real. Way more real than the world of dishes to wash and weeds to pull. Although, probably not get rich, I don't do mainstream socially acceptable dreams, I suspect, since I absolutely can't stand tv, and don't wish to please that market.

And yeah, I hate finding out the thing I built in my dream is not in the garage waiting to be installed, and the cool things I dug out of a dumpster or bought at a yard sale aren't here... I WANTED THOSE! I even picked the right colors  and sizes, and packed them carefully so they wouldn't break, dammit.... :(

The idea of teleporting squash around has lots of odd implications!
 
Did you just should on me? You should read this tiny ad:
