Flying Ace

"Bad dreams" or "Airliners down main street"

I dreamed that I was in a big city.  I wasn't sure if it was San Francisco or Chicago.  I was walking down a major road in the middle of the city and looked up to realize a major airliner was preparing to make an emergency landing right down the street.  There was absolute pandamonium and panic as it came down the street.  The wings sheared off and there was major damage to the buildings along the road.

There was no emergency crew to speak of...as the plane came to a stop and broke into pieces people surrounded them to help  passengers who were frantically jumping off.

I looked down the street and saw another plane getting ready to come in.

This went on for hours, big planes, little planes... some planes going up in flames... some people only had time to throw babies off into the crowds before their planes exploded.

I found that over half of the airports in the US had been blown up/ taken out of comission in terrorist attacks and planes were coming in anywhere they could.

It was frightening and numbing.  Things finally seemed to calm down a bit around dusk and I went around the city trying to find friends and family and find a place to stay.  There were people EVERYWHERE, some huddling in alleys, it seemed all the hotels were full and restaurants were staying open so people could have a place to come inside.

It was terrifying.

"10 things" or "It's all about ME."

1.  I usually go on a mile long walk every day during my lunch.  It's alongside a busy road which makes me think it is time to find a quieter walk.  The problem is I'm in a fairly busy part of town.  Not sure where I would go that is much quieter.
Still, it's nice...I love September weather. 
2.  Lisa is coming for the weekend.  Seasons seem to be a bit of a novelty for her (being a California girl & all,) so I think we may go for a drive up the mountains and see the leaves.  Tomorrow night we've planned to hang out with my roommates upstairs and go to a haunted house.  Nice thing about seeing them in September...NO CROWDS.
3.  My back molar HURTS.  It's the one that recently had some work done which makes me think I need to call my dentist and get in and have him check it.  YEOW.
4.  My apartment needs some acts of neatness done upon it.  Same for my car.  And my desk at work.  Maybe it's the weather that is causing me to want to have another cleansing purge.  GET RID OF STUFF.
5.  My sister lives too far away.  I wish I were just a wee bit closer so I could go down and help her more and play with the nieces and nephews more often.  I had so much fun helping Sam make his Frodo figurine last Saturday.  He did really well and was Mr. Chatty about the whole affair.
6.  I got asked recently in an LJ comment (not my journal) how my experience growing up as an Aspie differered from a normal kids.  How should *I* know?  I only know my own experience.  Do I wish I had more understanding teachers?  Sure! 
Right now I am happy being a fulfilled, happy, functioning adult.
7.  The #7 is off at jury duty.
8.  ...there are people that oddly enough I find myself missing.
9.  I am loving my career though I am feeling this urge to really push myself...much more than I have as of late.  Time to accomplish some great things!
10. I need to find out where the other participants of Scrivener's Toves are at.
