I had some weird dreams last night. I dreamed that I was looking out at a lake or another large body of water from a balcony. It didn't have tides that crashed on shore or receded like a big lake. Instead, the water was moving quickly as if there was a swift current. Trapped in the current was all kinds of garbage: shoes, tires, boards. I even saw a white van on a wooden raft go by until the raft overturned and pitched the van into the water. I watched it sink straight to the bottom.

While I was looking out over the water, a man who looked like the Samuel from the last season of Heroes, burst in on me. I have no idea what his problem was and why he wanted me dead so much, but whatever. Cue a huge chase sequence. I manage to slip out of the building and onto a street. I was running as fast as I could (and tiring quickly), but this dude was hot on my trail and barely breaking a sweat; it looked more like he was doing a fast walk. For me, this is just another twist on my recurring theme of being chased by a monster and either unable to run fast enough, if I can run at all. In some dreams, I end up stumbling away from my pursuer on all fours.

Then, out of no where, the lady that played the Queen of Starship England stepped out in front of me, mumbled something about being the devil, and stabbed my attacker with a large knife. Sweet!

Yeah, my dreams are kind of out there at times, but the imagery can be really cool.

For the past several weeks, the city has been installing a new water main on our block. Last night, I was bitching on Facebook and on Twitter about how the city managed to block my driveway and turn off my water just hours after we got our power back from the storm. And worse, they didn't let anybody know ahead of time what they were going to be doing. The only reason I figured out that I had to move my car and move it soon was because I looked out my window and saw that workers were digging one huge ass hold in the middle of my front yard ....and they were putting all the dirt in front of my house. Fortunately, I was able to get the car out, but I had to have one of the workers help direct me out. If I had waited until twenty minutes later, I wouldn't have gotten out at all. Nice. You know, a knock on the door before you decided to do all this would have been much appreciated. And, if I remember correctly, a flier that we got from the city said that they were going to tell us way ahead of time if they were going to block our driveway or turn off our water. Communication skills? Yeah, not so much.

Later, while I was at work, I got a series of texts from [livejournal.com profile] doomsey. One said that the water wasn't working at all. Another one said that it was sort of working, but not very well. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey called up the city and scheduled someone to come out and look at it first thing in the morning. He told me that he was afraid that the city workers had managed to fuck up while installing the new service line from the water main to our house. He explained that, if that was the case, it could potentially be very very bad. We might not get water back until next week at the earliest AND they might have to kill our trees while in the process of fixing it. One of our trees is an old silver maple that pre-dates the house. It also towers over everything on our block. Taking that tree down could potentially cost tens of thousands of dollars because you can't just attack it with an axe; it'll fall on someone's house that way. One would have to take it down piece by piece starting from the top and working down. *commence me starting to panic*

This morning, a city worker came by and fixed the problem in less than an hour. What was causing our water issues? The meter was plugged with dirt that got into the new service line. BIG RELIEF!!! Last night, I was planning on going over to my in-laws' house to take a shower and do laundry, but now it looks like I can take care of all of that at home. YAAYYYY!!!!!
