dream time

the latest gem is a huge cluster of what in the world is going on in my head. 
I had a dream last night that I was in a room - think conference room or meeting room in a hotel - with a bunch of people. Some I knew from college, but am not close to and haven't talked in forever. We had worked to put together some event and a brochure. When the brochure was done we each got a copy in an envelope. Mine had a note in it that said, Thanks so much ! - CW.  I look up and "CW" is wearing a green SUBWAY polo. He said, thanks so much for getting that picture I liked in there! Then, people were posing for pictures on a giant slide, and stacking themselves in pyramids for photos. 
..... ?


Ok so I have t-mobile. They are the best price for what I need(ed) on my phone at the time. My faves - so you have unlimited calls to 5 people you talk to between 7a and 7p, then reasonable price for the remaining minutes. No internet (I have a blackberry for work so I can access it that way). Well the poor little samsung is dying. (it looks similar to the pic to the left) 
Yesterday, I close the slider, and the screen slowly faded to white. Ummmm not ok. Then it rang. Screen = white. Now if the slider is closed the screen will be white. No idea who is calling. So if I don't pick up- sorry ! When it becomes white, you have to open it, close it, let it fade to black/off and then slide it open to see anything. The end is near little buddy. time to move on to a tmobile phone w/ the internet. 

 YES I would LOVE to switch to AT&T and get the Iphone. Unfortunately - I have a bit left on the tmobile contract and I'm NOT paying the $175 to kill that relationship. Unless someone is upgrading their Iphone, wants to give me their old one for free - and then I will probably shell out the $ (that I don't have ) for the plan.

I'd rather

It's days like today that make me miss college. It's rainy and gray and not warm, and this morning my room was dark and my bed was so comfy. It was almost torturous to get up out of such a nice place and come to work. . especially when Hocus Pocus and Across the Universe are already in the DVD player!

All Hallows’ Eve

How did I not know Halloween had such Celtic roots? Have I just not been paying attention? 

Halloween has origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain[pronounced: sow- wen] (Irish pronunciation: [ˈsˠaunʲ]; from the Old Irish samhain, possibly derived from Gaulish samonios).[5] The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture, and is sometimes[6] regarded as the "Celtic New Year".[7] Traditionally, the festivalwas a time used by the ancient Celtic pagans to take stock of supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. The ancient Celts believed that on October 31st, now known as Halloween, the boundary between the living and the deceased dissolved, and the dead become dangerous for the living by causing problems such as sickness or damaged crops. The festivals would frequently involve bonfires, into which the bones of slaughtered livestock were thrown. Costumes and masks being worn at Halloween goes back to the Celtic traditions of attempting to copy the evil spirits or placate them, inScotland for instance where the dead were impersonated by young men with masked, veiled or blackened faces, dressed in white.[8][9]
