Dreams A La Mortal Kombat and Kung Fu Chaos

I had the dream again, where I have to assemble a group of ordinary people to fight the forces of darkness in a laundromat in Eau Claire. This time, I managed to convince Steve Buscemi to come and fight with his "dope-ass Monkey God style". When I walked into the laundromat, he was in a black and white suit (a la Things to Do in Denver); he asked to change, and came back in saffron robes with fringe-covered beads that dripped green poison. His eyes started glowing red, he said "For the sake of Monkey!", and began fighting the NES-style monsters that always show up about that time.

I never get used to this dream, because it usually happens after the dream where I have to join a group of people killing hostile aliens. No change last night.

Her eyes are staring at me
Empty as the sky
In this moment of tranquility
I realize that this is 'goodbye'
Wonderfalls Flamingos

A Great New Product from Despair.Com for Valentine's Day

From the ad copy:

Truly, "BitterSweets(tm)" are the perfect gift for you OR for someone you love, especially if that special someone is one who doesn't want to hurt your feelings but just doesn't feel that way about you but still wants to be friends so they can torment you with stories about their crushes on someone who doesn't appreciate them like you do, can't love them like you can, and actually takes pleasure in corralling a herd of fawning "just friends" behind themselves as they indulge in one self-destructive relationship after another, with no hope of ever finding true love, despite an army of souls eager to lavish it upon them.

(You know what we're talking about.)
