For Lack of a Better Title…Happy New Year!

To dream that you are late, denotes your fear of change and your ambivalence about seizing an opportunity. You may feel unready, unworthy, or unsupported in your current circumstances. Additionally, you may be overwhelmed or conflicted with decisions about your future. You feel time is running out and that you do not have time to accomplish all the things you want.

Apparently that’s what’s going on with me. I dreamt that I was ridiculously late for work, but I was doing nothing to rectify the situation. I was watching television. I was going out to dinner. I kept saying to my companions, “I really have to call work.” But I didn’t. I received a text message from a coworker telling me I was a horrible person. Something to contemplate as 2009 rolls in (while I’m at work).

Today was momentous. I went to the post office and submitted my passport application!! I think I’ll be able to survive without the $101.05 it cost. We’ll see. My rent check for January might bounce, but I don’t care. In approximately 1 month I will have a passport. AHHHHH!

I promised my Bulgarian neighbor (who I met this week when I locked myself out of my apartment and went knocking on doors looking for the superintendent) that I would get my passport, but he wasn’t around this afternoon for me to tell him the good news. He made me instant coffee and claimed to have met the Dalai Lama and Salvador Dali. He’s pretty much my new best friend.

After work I’m thinking about heading back to my neighborhood to this bar that has a 24-hour license. Which is obviously a terrible idea, but I’m feeling celebratory! We’re alive. It’s a new year! Venus is shining brightly under the crescent moon.¬† As if I need excuses to be an irresponsible drunk chick…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Dalai Lama and Salvador Dali? Dalai/Dali?

    I don’t know where I was going with that… something, something, “Hello Dal(a)i!” something, joke, smile…

    I’m having a pretty rough day from a pretty wild night. Sounds like you made the best of your NYE even though you had to work. Congrats on the passport progress, too… any plans on where you might go first?

    And there are 24-hour bars in NYC? Why haven’t I ever been there??

      I’m glad you noticed the Dalai/Dali! I didn’t know where to go with that either.

      Trip plans are in their early stages, but one of my bosses mentioned India and the Philippines for business. And I told the Dept. of State I’d be in Turkey for 2 weeks come June 1st, which will likely end up being a lie.

      I think the 24-hour bar is a rarity, reserved for special occasions at especially low-class joints. Hope you’ve recovered!!
