Today's horrorscope:

Why is it you always seem to have something to worry about? Whatever the reason you must find ways to convince yourself that your latest big fear is all in your mind. It won't be too many weeks before the cosmic wheel turns in your favor and everything looks shiny and bright again - but why wait when you can see things that way right now?

The most important thing today is that you do not allow yourself to be discouraged by lack of funds. There are still plenty of ways to achieve your aims without having to spend a fortune. One way is to get help from people who share similar ambitions. Together you can change the world - and maybe make some money too.

Talking to a colleague outside my place, a woman with her kids walked past me, and then stopped, turned back, looking at me in disbelief.


We hugged and alla dat.

I introduced her to my colleague:

"This is K, we used to work together at in New York."
"New York???"
"Youre kidding. All the way in New York??"
"Heh. Yup."

K is originally from San Francisco, did married with kids in NY, but returned back because she wanted her kids to grow up in California.

The kicker, after a distance of thousands of miles, K now lives across the street from me.



I had a very long dream, about my ex-fiance back in Chicago.

No details for public consumption, but what is interesting is that Ive never really dreamt of the women, past and present, in my life.

In the past few weeks Ive dreamt of a few.


Feels like im saying goodbye.
