I had a kissing dream last night--I was kissing Tom Hanks! I don't know if it was directly him or if he was playing someone else. I was in his car, which was a Buick or something, and we had just gotten haircuts so there were all these little snips of hair stuck to the upholstery on the seats, mingling together, and he pointed at it and said it was a sign that we were sexually compatible.That last question was part of the email, but feel free to answer it. (There are no rhetorical questions, just rhetorical answers.) I sure am. Bored, that is.
I also dreamt I had to trek across the country largely on foot to meet my family at this Mexican restaurant in El Paso called The Riviera.
Are you really bored by other people's dreams?
P.S. I'm sure many of you have noticed that I went ahead and got on the Google+, though I haven't posted or shared anything yet. Why is it I find Facebook and Google+ boring but continue to enjoy Twitter and blogs? It's not immediately apparent to me. But a few things seem to be true:
- Though Google+ is ostensibly more private, I feel more freedom to say whatever I want on Twitter, because I assume few people are actually paying attention. I assume my blabbing will largely get lost in the noise.
- I associate Twitter with jokes and chatter and Facebook et al. with signaling and self-promotion. Of course you can use Twitter for self-promotion too, but I don't follow people who use it that way. Maybe I feel more freedom to follow only who I want to on Twitter?
- I do like that strangers can follow you on Google+: that's one of the reasons I prefer blogging/microblogging to Facebook. When I'm online, I don't only want to talk to my friends.
