Day 2 of our family vacation. 2nd hotel. Still, not too bad so far.

We left yesterday about 1:30 and took our time with the drive, getting into Pasadena about 8:30. Not too shabby, and no car sickness from the kids which is always a bonus. I brought my Storm Front and Fool Moon CD's to listen to in the car; Craig loves audio books and with such a long trip, I knew it was ideal. It's so weird, but I completely forget I'm listening to James halfway through the first CD. Craig's enjoying them quite a bit; I got yelled at last night for stopping it at one point. He still won't read the books, though. That's just too much of a time commitment for him when he could be reading computer books. What? You think I'm kidding? The boy reads coding manuals for leisure reading. He's weird that way.

We took the kids to see The Incredibles this afternoon, and while it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped, there were some brilliant bits in it. Still recommend it for people, though maybe not if your kids are too young. Alex got a bit bored in the middle though he was fine for the rest of it.

Tomorrow is Universal Studios, and Disneyland is on Wednesday and Thursday, with San Diego happening this weekend. Who's brilliant idea was this again? No, really, I'm not complaining. It's wonderful having Craig around so much. And I'm even being good foodwise. I'm quite pleased with myself.

I have tons of e-mails to catch up on, so hopefully that will happen tonight. I'm writing, too, and there should be a couple of fic updates in the next few days (Echoes should be on Wednesday; Frost will likely be on Tuesday).

Dream question

I had a dream last night about someone I went to high school with. It wasn't someone who I ran around with; in fact, I only ever saw him because he was in a lot of the same honors classes as I was. I knew very little about him socially, except I don't remember him ever having a serious girlfriend.

What bugs me is that this isn't the first time I've dreamt about him. This is probably the third or fourth dream I've had about him in the past year. It's not like he was remarkable in any way, or did anything to me when we went to school. He was smart, and yes, I thought he was cute, but other than that...nothing. And still, I dream about him every once in a while.

For those on my friends list who've been out of high school a while (it's been 17 years since I even saw this guy; in a fit of curiosity and a procrastiation moment, I did a search for him online and still came up with nothing), does this happen to you? Why do you think this is?

Well, I wasn't talking about politics, but I love the sentiment of this. Gakked from most of my friends-list:

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love
