Swimming dream

So last night I dreamt of glory and aquatics. I was this short blonde swimmer, and I was the best in my high school. It was the week of the state finals and I was training and running and all that junk but the whole week I was wearing a yellow speedo and yellow tanktop that for some reason I wore the whole week, running and everything. I was jogging around some town I guess I lived in when I noticed some red blazer following me suspiciously so I turned into an alley and they peeled out trying to beat me to the end of the block on the street. I hid between some of the houses and they kept going by and the driver looked just like Tricky. I was listening to sports radio while I was running later and they were talking about Mike Prior who was my cousin, (he's a pitcher for the cubs) and was being criticized for having to be totally drunk so that he could pitch. I was ashamed but it was so true.
Then came the day when our team was going to the state finals. The pool was about as long as a football field and it was in a huge red cave that was lit very well with lights from like a baseball stadium or something. There were like 5 floating islands which were like our team's bases or something and 5 events. There were a ton of people that had to stand up the whole time in a hallway to watch. Our team had my brother and sister, who were like 11 and 8 years old, and two other dudes and me.
The first event was amazing. My little brother, who looked like JTT was sitting on a seat strapped to the top of a shark cage and the event involved some sort of explosion underwater that would make him fly into the air and he would have to high jump different levels of telephone wires. My sister won some type of normal event and so did I and the other two dudes.
After we won the state championship trophy, Wisconsin's basketball coach recruited me to go there and play basketball and swim which are in the same season and really impossible to do both. Weird.

Merry merry cheeks all hairy

So this is my first post. Don't hold your breath. I don't really know if I'm gonna do much with this but thought it'd be amusing. So here I am. I had a dream the other night where I was Omar Epps in some movie he's been in that I swear I've seen but this movie was all about me sneaking around with a gun and acting like I was gonna shoot some girls but I really just wanted them to talk me out of it. Mostly I thought they were all hot. Kinda Pam Grier hot. But then I had a dream that some random college acquaintances and I had to work in this huge cement grey building with like twenty stories and thousands of orange metal doors which were all very similar. So much that I was continually lost throughout the dream and in each room was a concession stand type of sliding door in which we hid hints on how to find our way back. Very labyrinthical.

Also last weekend I was severely dizzy and sick to my stomach constantly. I went to the doctor and was told I have a small case of VERTIGO. Doesn't that beat all. That's what Lucille 2 on Arrested Development has so that's kinda cool. They gave me some non-spinning pills that actually haven't helped a whole lot but at least I got to work all week. yay. I hope this goes away.
