Have you ever...

...woken up from a dream but still had the sensation of being in it? Well, it happened to me today. I won't even explain about the bizarre images and experiences that I went through in last night's dream--it involves a man with big, nasty elephant ears and a unicorn horn in the middle of my forehead. Just weird stuff, and way too complicated and fuzzy to explain anyway.

The thing is, the sensation of waking up and realizing last night's surreal experience was only a dream is disorienting. From the moment you slip out of bed and you go to the bathroom, you're still wondering if what you're seeing and touching is the real thing.

It amazes me how intense some dreams can be, and how they warp your sense of reality for a moment. The line between reality and fantasy blurs. Even when you have nightmares with people you know and you see them the next day, you still have that thorn of worry or anger (depending on what the dream with that person was) pricking your chest. It's just so weird. The human mind really does amazes me. Sometimes I really do wonder if death in dreams would really mean death in this realm...

I just realized...

I haven't posted anything in a very very long time! So I started wondering what could I talk you guys about, and then, puff, just like that, I thought of something.

You only know my writer side, the one that sinks its head deep into the magical and soul-stirring world of the written word, and I want you to know more about me. After all, that is what this blog is about, right? You word-leeches getting to know me a little bit better. So, the first thing that came to my mind was actually...surprising. And when I started digging more into it, I noticed how obvious and funny this trait of mine is. Well, at least, I think it's funny.
So...I love to make funny faces. Whenever a camera is near and a flash comes my way, my face transforms. And I mean that literally! I don't know if it's a rebellious thing because I don't like people taking pictures of me, or if it's because stiff pictures with fake smiles don't strike my fancy, or if it's because, I don't know, I like to be funny and that's the only way I can be funny? Who knows, I'll leave that to me and my pillow tonight.

I just remembered that about two months ago, this girl wanted to take a girl picture--you know, one of those where people say let's take a picture of all the girls and they all automatically school their bodies into this model-like posture with a movie-star smile on their faces. Okay, so, I hate that. Hate it. When the time came to take the picture, I did the opposite and contorted my face into what I thought was a funny face. The girl took the camera back from a guy and took a look at the picture. Of course, she hated it. Why? Because my un-ladylike face was spoiling it. So they took it a second time and I had to do what was "right". *snort*
But not all people, or girls to be precise, are like this. Some love my pictures and do it with me, which makes it really amusing, and really fun to watch afterwards :)

Okay, so I'll let you be the judge. These are just a few. In some of them I look funny, in others I look ugly, and in others I look....whatever. That's the word it comes to mind (so much for being a writer).

 Yep. That's all I have now. Maybe I'll pick some more and upload them later. Or I could do a "Funny Face of the Week" thing. Yeah! That's a winner :)

Gotta love the picture!

A reader sent me over this picture of her with The Ylem. Doesn't she look perfect with the book? I absolutely love it! If you happen to have the paperback of the book, please don't hesitate to send a picture of yourself with it to my email. I am thinking on doing something cool with the pics. A collage maybe? Yeah... why not?
