So this dream involved a Mill Woods-like mall, and my dad was owning/managing a store that my sister and I were working at.
A family business.
It was a slow day, since I would constantly be wandering around the mall, seeing what was new. There was apparently a bar I kept on going into. A bar that had either new books or new comic book trades on its tables, since I was perusing the tables to see if there were any I hadn't read.
A toddler wanders into the bar. I pick him up to take him outside the bar to his mom. The kid starts screaming for his dad as soon as I take him into my arms.
I start trying to console him: "Shhh. No, your mommy's here. I'm taking you to her."
I hand the kid to his mother, who smiles and thanks me, apologizing for the way her son was acting up.
EJ appears on the scene. I tell the mother it's no problem, and EJ and I head back towards the store.
From behind me, I hear a gurgling gagging from the toddler. I think to myself "Uh oh. This isn't good."
At which point a tidal wave of vomit hits me full force, knocking me over. To the point where I'm completely covered from head to toe.
At which point I know I need to leave the mall, head home, and shower and change clothes. But first I have to tell Dad.
That's pretty much where I woke up, after some talking with my dad about how I obviously have to leave work early, since I'm covered in baby spew. As was EJ, but not quite as much as I was.

The newest lineup of Channel 101 shorts has hit, including a brand new House of Cosbys.
Seriously, this show keeps on getting better and better.
Also, Laser Fart, the show that at the beginning of its run was a way for the admin of the site to show what he meant about knocking a pilot off in a few hours, has become the emotional center of the site. Seriously.
Also, you might want to check out Dick Richards, Private Dick, a story about a detective that's amazingly animated with a bunch of black and white photographs. Such great stuff this month, although one of my faves, Magick Haus, was cancelled this time around.

I'm making the evite for my birthday party today. We're going to go bowling if it kills me.

But for now, there's a bit more sleep I want to catch up on. Just wanted to transcribe my dream before I forgot about it.
