Week In Review – StoryMen Surprises

I woke up from zombie dreams in the middle of the night. Again.
Super vivid, but not gross, dreams (again).
Lots  of action in this one, you guys.
What is up with the zombie dreams all the time?
How many zombie dreams do I have in the course of a week
that I just don’t remember?
I don’t like all those zombies being in there like that,
and me not knowing it unless I wake up. It’s creepy.

Today I got a call from my beloved StoryMen,
who were getting opinions for a new project.
It was a surprise and a delight, but also kinda weird,
like getting a call from Sandra Bullock or someone like that.
You know she’s nice and really just a regular person and all…
but she’s Sandra Bullock!
The StoryMen called me, y’all!
For my opinion!
Actually, I thought they had better sense than that.

Why do you hate me, GPS?

Today I told someone,
“I keep feeling like my armpits stink right now,
but I smelled them and they don’t.”

I totally went to The Golden Corral with my mom today
and ate whatever I wanted,
instead of going to the gym like I’d planned.
And I have no regrets whatsoever.

So today I went to see the movie Gravity.
It was stunning.
A work of visual, audial and emotional art.
Very moving and spiritual.

I saw Gravity again today, but on a bigger screen.
No less amazing the second time.
AND, I listened to the latest StoryMen podcast,
and I got another Storymen surprise when JR
gave my podcast a mention. Sweet!!
If you don’t know who they are yet, that would
also be surprising because I talk about them enough!

Happy Anniversary, StoryMen! (give them a listen!)

  1. Hiya Boots,
    We always load up on the Bourbon Chicken at GC… regrets either.

    This Zombie dream stuff creeped into our last post…..probably your fault.

    • I had some of that, haha! Good stuff.

      And I take no responsibility whatsoever for any of your zombies, RR. It’s a man-eat-man world out there, and I’m sorry but any zombies that come your way are your sole responsibility. (How they got there in the first place may be up for debate, but my policy is deny, deny, deny!)

      I started reading your post when it came out, and I got as far as the blood bath. That got me, haha. I have zombie dreams but there’s rarely any blood or gore. Even though it was a relatively innocent rare steak, it got me. My imagination is too good – it’s creeping me out just thinking about it now! But I’ll have to go back and finish.

      • Boots,
        I couldn’t figure out how to work in a round of Chinese food… it had to be steak and eggs.

        Deny all you want.

        • Fair enough. And a Chinese food bath may have been a worse visual, haha.

          And I will. 🙂

  2. I have never dreamed of Zombies. Do you watch Zombie movies or something? Maybe you shouldn’t. The StoryMen are new to me. I listened to part of the podcast but I don’t have time to finish…I will go back later. I really liked My Imaginary Jesus. Have you read it?

    • Sometimes, but not every week or even very often. I think maybe they’re just my bug-a-boo or boogeyman or something.

      I’ve really enjoyed The StoryMen a lot. They typically have guests, so there’s a lot of variety in their show too. My favorites are usually the book authors.

      I just got My Imaginary Jesus, but I’ve only read the first chapter so far. It’s pulled me in immediately though and it’s already so good! If I’d read it before listening to their show, I’d be completely starstruck by Matt, for sure! As it is, I’m just regular starstruck, haha. He’s pretty awesome.

      • The book is great for discussion. I think it would be good for a teen group to read and talk about. It is thought provoking. Now I wish I hadn’t passed it on…I would read it again.

  3. I’m not sure how to feel about being called Sandra Bullock.
