Where were his super powers?

Cubs ace Jake Arieta was so human tonight! Five runs in the first inning? Really, Jake?

Oh well, we were in it till the last. And tomorrow John Lackey takes the mound. He's off to a frustrating start, and as a former Red Sox, I bet he's eager to get out there and prove himself.

My friend Sandy

I had the most vivid dream last night! And my, it was weird.

I was supposed to be in our condo association meeting. I'm on the board now, and there are things about it that weigh on me and I guess my concerns bled into my slumber. Anyway, for some reason we were meeting in the community center that Will rents for our movie group.

The community center (both in real life and in my dream) has two big screening rooms. One is near the front entrance, the other is down a long hall. I thought our meeting was in the one in the front. I went in, and found it filled with strangers. So I headed for the one down the hall and found it locked. For some reason, I don't knock and I don't ask anyone for help. (It's a dream; logic doesn't always apply.) According to Dream Moods, being locked out suggests that I am feeling alienated and have trouble getting in touched with my feelings.

That could well be, because now I'm beyond sad because I should be in there. Fortunately, my friend Sandra Bullock is at the refreshment counter. We sit down with croissants and hot chocolate and I tell her all my woes.

Sandy is a very good listener, and I feel better. People come piling out of both screening rooms and Sandy and I disappear into the crowd and exit into the night.

Funny, but I always thought my celebrity gal pal was Jennifer Aniston. But my subconscious tells me otherwise.

The Friday 56

The Friday 56

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.

From Sisters, page 56  It's 1935. Olivia DeHavilland is filming the big-budget costume drama, Anthony Adverse.
A scene from the movie

She had several rows with [producer] Hal Wallis over her costumes. She insisted they be very low cut to be historically correct, and to show off her beautiful breasts. But Wallis knew the Breen Office, which controlled movie censorship, would make a fuss. He overruled Olivia, and she fretted and fumed.
