get your thinking caps on

Last night was a strange one. Just as I was putting the kids to bed, the power went out but flickered back to life moments later. Twenty minutes later, the same thing. About twenty minutes later, the power went out and stayed out. Ever try hanging laundry by flashlight?! Loads of fun (get it?! Loads?!)!!

After about ten minutes, I realized the power wasn't coming on anytime soon so I called the electric company to report the outage. It said we should have power by 12:45am. It was only 10-something at the time. Good thing I had a book. Bad thing it was on Georgia ghosts!!

At about the time that the power was supposed to come back on, having had my fill of ghost stories, I went to sleep. I awoke at 1:38, no power. At 2:19, I heard the A/C kick on and the lamp on my nightstand went on. I turned out the light, turned over and went back to sleep 'til my alarm went off at 5:30.

Between the ghost stories and the power, a good night sleep was not to be had and on nights like these where I usually have off-the-wall dreams. It's not often that I remember my dreams so I wanted to share this doozy with y'all!

I was in my office. Having just solved The Black Dahlia case, I was feeling pretty good. I get a call from my girlfriend, actress Scarlett Johansson. I asked her where she wanted to go that night to celebrate my career-making moment and she said Eastrails.

I had never heard of the place (of course I just Googled it and all it turned up were a bunch of railway lines in Asia) and suddenly, I was standing in front of the place, still talking to Scarlett. It was a fine dining establishment with a huge jewelry gallery. Well, of course she wanted me to take her there! The bitch wanted me to buy her jewelry!!

I cannot even explain to you the back-and-forth I had with the hostess. She was some snooty British-wannabe and just annoying in general.

As I'm standing there trying to simulataneously make the reservation and talking to Scarlett, it seems Scarlett had fallen asleep on the phone as she wasn't answering me! And that's where I woke up.

Okay...I'm waiting for your amazing dream-deciphering abilities to take over. Let me have it!

Shit, no idea...I don't do dreams. Couldn't even tell you the last time I dreamt.
