Another Dream of Fear  
I woke up happy again today for my second Fear dream. This one was not as good as the last one but still good. I dreamt I was back at work at the science museum. There was a band there and we were trying to get people to sign a petition to reinstate Pluto as a Planet with this fund raiser concert. I came on the stage while they were singing the song Wild Child and I was Fear. I grabbed one of the mics and started singing. The band was surprised but since I did it so well they soon liked it. The lead singer and I were trading lines back and forth. I remember thinking to myself that I couldn't believe I hadn't been kicked off the stage. Also that I knew the lyrics. I was figuring them out based on what rhymed. I just remember the thrill of being in front of a crowd and being part of a whole making awesome music. It was great. Here's the song for those of you that want to hear it. It's a metal band with an 80s fee. Wild Lixx.

Speaking of songs I had something hilarious and mind blowing happen to me today. Chris and I went to eat at First Watch. We were talking about Australia for some reason and I told him about a video I watched that they have this jelly spread that goes on bread called Vegemite. They say if you're not an Australian you'll hate it. Not for foreigners. I had found a video of this couple that tried it and the husband nearly lost it. It was so funny. Chris didn't know it was a real thing. He said he thought it was something made up in the song Land Down Under where they mention "A vegemite sandwich." Ok it was at this point I had my mind blown. WHAT? I have known that song forever. It came out in 1981. I thought he was saying, "I betcha' my sandwich" Here are the real lyrics

"I said do you speaka my language
And he just smiled
And gave me a vegemite sandwich"

My version

"I said do you speaka my language
And he just smiled
And said I betcha' my sandwich"

Which makes total sense. For 36 years that's what I was sure it was. So at breakfast I could not stop laughing about this. It's almost as shocking to me as pluto getting demoted. I must have laughed for 10 minutes straight over this. Chris was so amused. I was so tired though after that laughing fit. Rarely do I laugh that much but I bet there are a bunch of lyrics in this song that I don't know as half of it I never did understand but never questioned it. It's a great song. Here's that song.

I finally got my Pluto globe today but man did I have a scare. The tracking said it was on my door step but there was nothing there. I was worried it had been stolen. I called UPS and told them about it and they told me they'd get back to me. A while later there's a knock at our door and the UPS guy had our package. He said he accidentally had left it at the wrong house. I was so thankful. I'm just glad it wasn't lost forever because these things are expensive. I opened it up and it is a lovely little thing. It had to charge up in the room but now is spinning nicely on my dresser. It came with a scratch but I'm not going to send it back as it's not too bad. It took long enough to get here. I will try to do a nice video review on it soon.

I haven't done any art today. Just been doing other stuff. Don't know if I will tomorrow either. I'm getting ready to go out and try to film the International Space Station. Please pray that there are no clouds and it's perfect weather. I hope this works out. This is going to be way harder than filming the eclipse. It will be over in about a second literally. It's a solar transit so that makes it hard having to have solar paper as a filter again.

I keep forgetting to mention that I'm very proud of our president. And because of his actions things are getting better for us. Our bank gave us a refund check. We also got our mortgage lowered. We make more money now because we pay fewer taxes from the tax cut. We also got a refund from another bank out of nowhere. Thank you bank. I don't care why but that's always a welcome gift. And with all this space stuff I think patriotism is very high right now. At the monster truck show it was great to hear the national anthem at the start though I missed seeing it as I got there late because of traffic. The lady had an awesome operatic voice.

So I don't know when I'll get a chance to work on art. If not tomorrow then perhaps Friday.

That was a really cool dream :) Well, I remember the Johnny O'Keefe version of Wild Child, though :P

Vegemite is not a jelly but a spread. We have jam which is more like your jelly. Vegemite tastes more like Bonox. I love it!

I love that song, too. I really like your version :D :D :D it's about him 'doing the hippie trail'. Australians used to do it in the 70s. Gyro did it, too.

Oh, gee, you nearly didn't get your Pluto! I'm glad you now have it and that you are enjoying it :)

Glad you are doing well, too :)

Thanks. It was very fun. I did't know there was a cover song. Well they did a great job.

I don't know the difference between jelly and jam. I've always used the terms interchangeably. Ha that's great you love it. I wonder how I'd react? If I'd freak out like the guy in the video.

Haha thanks. All my life that's what I thought that part said. And it just makes sense like he's answering the question that he speaks English. Oh it's a real thing too. Kinda like South America has the Inca Trail?

I was very worried. But so glad when the guy brought my box. I can't wait to make the video. It's a lovely little planet.

Thanks.

We often get introduced to a new song by a new version. Yes, it is fun :) And your 'interpretation' was understandable and made sense :)

Jam and jelly are pretty much interchangeable but vegemite is different. I would put it in the same category as fish spread and other savoury fillings. You might just freak out at the taste of vegemite. I think it is an acquired taste and most people have to be exposed very early in life to like it. However, if you prefer savoury to sweet, you just might like it.

I would have been worried, too, and I'm glad you got it. I would love any video of it you might put up!

I've tried Vegemite before. It's really salty.

I'm glad you were able to get the pluto globe.

I hope you can successfully film the space station. That would be cool. The space station went over my house once at night. It looked like a fast moving star.

I will have to try it one day. I didn't even know it existed.

It's such a neat thing. I definitely want to get all the others. Jupiter will be next. But not for a while.

Thanks. So far it seems like a nice day but there can't be any cloud. Oh that's great. I've been using transit find to let me know where it is and what times.

I thought it was "And had a bite of my sandwich". I knew vegemite was a type of spread from youtube videos, I've never tasted it myself.
Glad that you got your Pluto orb in the end.
That's great to hear that conditions are improving for you economically.
Desthagirion on March 8th, 2018 01:19 pm (UTC)
Ha, I'm glad I'm not the only one that misunderstood that. That makes senses too and is even funnier. I like that. I wonder what other strange things people have heard wrong about this song?
Thanks. I love this little globe.
Actually it's not good now. After the surgery we have more unexpected bills. We're trying to get through a hard time right now.

On a lighter note have you read the dream I posted here? This is the one I mentioned on DA.

And this post has the art I made for it.

Damn it, that's tough, I hope you get through it.
I'll check out both those links.
I also wanted to give you a heads up, I have my final exams coming up in roughly a week, and I'll have my viva plus an entrance exam in April, although we haven't gotten the exact dates yet. So if I'm offline for a while, it's because of those. I guess things will clear up later April.
Desthagirion on March 9th, 2018 12:11 pm (UTC)
Thanks. We're doing our best. I'm sure we'll make it though. Things will just be a bit rough for a time.
Ok.
Thanks for the heads up. Those sound rough. Good luck with them.
