last night i had dreams of owning an ancient blue pickup truck. ...that could fly. and getting a black eye the shape of vermont. and that poor miss kitty got stuck in the kitchen sink drain. because sink drains, as everyone knows, are shaped and function like the ones in the curbs on the streets that go to the sewer system. and a cat CAN get stuck in one of those. (well, either she was stuck, or the logo for the musical "cats" was alive and living on the side of my kitchen sink, blinking at me. (i'm not sure which option is more disturbing)
and then i woke up with a tune running through my head. it took me a few hours to be distressed that i was intermittently singing "haha, hehe, hoho." i thought it was just a variation on the laughing yoga therapy i'd read about yesterday, until i realized the refrain to the earworm i was stuck with was: "happy place where life is beautiful all the time"
i'm not sure i should be grateful or not. for a brief moment in time, it displaced the earworm i've been stuck with since watching the kenedy center honor's musical tribute to mel brooks. while the tune is lilting and catchy in a beautiful sort of way, there is just something disturbing about humming over and over and over a line whose corresponding words are 'springtime for hitler and germany'
