BEGIN DREAM SEQUENCE
OK, it was like I was in high school or something. Brian had a girlfriend (well, he usually does) and I had a boyfriend, but we had managed to scope out some Brian/Val time at lunch. So, I was playing a prank on Brian, and so whenever I went to put my tray up, I hid at the side of the door, and when Brian came through the door I reached out and smacked him good on the chest. So, he did a fake karate kick on me in the shoulder. There was some other guy in the room, egging us on. I don't know if he was a real-life person, or just a random dream person just there to encourage juvenile behavior. Anyway, we got into a cut fight (a cut fight is when you say bad stuff about the other person, or their heritage, or their mom, or anything -- nothing is sacred. It's not actually a fight involving knives.) and Brian said something that he thought was soooo keen, and I thought it was lame-ass, so I dropped trou and did a little underpants dance. Our extra guest nearly pissed himself laughing. While I was doing that (and it was a good long dance), Brian did this thing where he pulls an arm into his shirt, and then makes a finger come out his pants zipper like it's a little weiner. He was chanting a 70s "Woot! Woot!" kind of thing, too. So, I started singing "I like bread & butter, I like toast & jam..."
Of course, we can't do stuff like that forever without breaking down and laughing, so eventually we started laughing and laughing. Brian was like "man, if our significant others saw us right now, they'd be all mad!"

In other news, I got a new Zippo today. It reminded me that I lost my previous Zippo about 4 years ago. I know this because I either lost it in my car (which I bought 4 years ago) or this guy I was dating at the time stole it. Since the car was relatively clean at the time, the only possible place it could have gotten lost would have been in between the front seat and the thingy that goes in between the front seats
to prevent hanky-panky
that you put cassette tapes in. Anyway, the reason I got motivated to finally get another Zippo is that yesterday on Pokemon, Meowth had a Zippo. I was like, man, if a talking cat can have a Zippo, I need a replacement. The only thing is that this one doesn't have the characteristic notch in it where I dropped the other one down the stairs. I always knew it was mine from that notch.
Good news re work: looks like we're not going to New York in January, but we're probably going to Orlando in February! Boo-yah!
And speaking of February, the coolest day of any calendar is coming up soon. February 29. I still think it should be a holiday. I wish I'd had a LJ last time, just to see what I was thinking then. Leap Day is cooler than all the other holidays because we only get it once every 4 years, rather than once a year like the other holidays. Plus, everyone in the world gets the day! Use it wisely, it'll be 4 more years until you get another one! I hope we're in Orlando and I hope I can take the day off and go to Disneyland or Universal Studios or something. I'm all :
