> I find I am more suited for random posts these days than long stories. It hasn't been a long story kind of week. But on that note, I had the oddest sci-fi type dream the other day, not episodic and hard to put together like most of my dreams, but an actual story. See, Small and I were in Jaipur for some event or another, and we were befriended by this older dude, who Small thought was fantastic, but I thought was a little creepy, coz he kept feeling me up. One day, we were all sitting in this amphitheatre thing, listening to this very annoying, very young singer perform, and she was sitting a couple of rows above me. Anyway, so at this point, Jaipur was overrun with aliens, with purple and blue and green claws, and they were out to get the humans, and we all knew that they were planning to kill us, slowly, one by one. So we were trying to lie low and be quiet and everything, and this singer chick kept yapping and suddenly, out of this helicopter that was hovering above the amphitheatre, this huge claw reached down in front of her. To fuck with it, she put her hat on it, but that was a MISTAKE, which she realised once the claw shook off the hat and hooked itself into her throat, ripping out her voicebox through her mouth.
After this, was a long afternoon nap, with this Creepy Dude, who had strange breath and kept coming on to me, I told Small he was an alien, because the way to tell was that they had bad breath. Only she didn't believe me. I went with the Creepy Dude to this conference hall thing in the hotel, and everywhere I looked I saw familiar faces, only with these really glazed expressions that said they were taken over by the aliens too. I abandoned Creepy Dude and started to rush back to our room, because I realised we had to get out of there and go back to Delhi to stay alive and then I bumped into this PR chick, who was also an alien, but who thought I was too. "Come to the amphitheatre," she said, "We can go in the same cab." "Okay, but let me get my friend," I told her and started running through the hotel looking for my room, only all the room numbers had vanished, so I couldn't find it. Frantically, I made my way to the receptionist, who was also someone I knew, but there was no reciprocal recognition in her eyes. "Room 205? But that's got two humans," she said to me, and all the other humans turned aliens looked at me oddly. "Yeah, I know it's got humans," I said, "I want to kill them." They accepted that, and I ran towards our room.
Small opened the door, weeping because her boyfriend was an alien too, and she had no idea why he was acting that way. "There's no time to explain," I told her, "We have to hijack a car and drive as fast as we can to Delhi!" Only she kept bawling, and I was getting more and more frantic and then, well, I woke up, so I don't know what happened. Weird dream, huh?
> I love music quizzes. I really do. So I'm going to make one up for my blog. You have to identify the song. Ready? Here goes:
1) You say, we've got nothing in common, no common ground to start from, and we're falling apart.
2) I was lying on the grass, on Sunday morning of last week, indulging in my self-defeat.
3) If you need me, call me, no matter where you are, no matter how far.
4) Desmond has a barrell in the marketplace, Bonnie is a singer with a band
5) Miles and miles of empty space in between us, the telephone can't take the place of your smile.
6) Unbelievable sights, indescribable feelings
7) What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing, can't you tell that your tie's too wide?
8) Kinda like Nashville, with a tan
9) You don't have to put on that red light
10) I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you, I just can't believe it's true
Leave your answers in the comment section. Enjoy!
Oh, and also this is my all-time favourite quiz, if my teeny one has whetted your appetite for more.
And my cool cousin, Horse Boy has another quiz up on his blog inspired by this one, of which I only got one wrong. Starship Who? :)
