I didn't write my usual Monday post yesterday because I took some time off. Yeah, me, who doesn't have enough time to get through my eternal to-do list. Yesterday was the DH's birthday, and it was the big 5-0 so of course we needed to celebrate it. We spent the day in Williamsburg and enjoyed lunch and a walk among the colonial trappings. I miss living there - it's so quiet, even during the peak tourist season. I don't miss how easily it is to get lost while driving around town, but maybe if I'm fortunate enough to retire we can find a place up there.
I had a weird dream the other night, too. A Doctor Who dream, which I rarely have, so I'm glad to have remembered parts of this one. I was a companion and River Song was there, and while Twelve was outside doing something the two of us slipped into the TARDIS. Before I realized it, we were floating away and leaving him behind. Neither one of us had control of the ship.
I turned to River Song and said, "If he asks, we'll blame this on Clara." I pushed a button and brought us back. The Doctor didn't say anything, but took us for a ride into a future where somebody had built a theme park on the moon, where unofficial Gay Days were going on. Like at Disney. The Doctor says, "We should go there," and pulls in the TARDIS.
Here's where it got weird: somewhere along the line we get separated. I'm in an admission line and while I have a ticket I have to wait for my name to be called to enter this park. People arriving after me are getting in first, which pisses me off (perhaps a clue to real issues) until finally I'm told they've reached their cap for the day. I have to come tomorrow to use my ticket, and the park people put me in one of their resorts for the night. Next thing I know I'm waking up in a cell-like room with the feeling something bad is going to happen. That's when I wake up.
I used to keep track of my dreams to interpret them, and I imagine there's quite a bit I could get out of this one to apply to real life. I'd hate to think the Doctor and River Song were intentionally trying to ditch me, though. :(
While that's going on, I just turned in my edits for Daring Destiny, which is part of the First Lady Love all F/F anthology. Cover is coming, I'm told, so I can't wait to show it off. I'll need to decide when to release the story on its own, if at all.
On top of this, I'm helping tidy up new releases for other authors. I'll be sharing them soon. :)
