I went to a seedy AM/PM in Point Loma, a seaside area of San Diego that has both rich & poor people. The cellphone photo is not the best because it was taken at night but I saw this poster for some kind of weird wax toy that has a straw coming out of colored noses. Apparently, the child who plays with this toy is supposed to pick which color nose he/she wants to suck their drink out of. Lovely.
Last night, I dreamed I got invited to Jon Stewart’s Daily Show! I didn’t know exactly why I was invited, whether it was to be in the audience or be a guest, or because I won a contest. I got on a plane, walked through, and for some reason, I was told the show was being taped in Colorado. So that’s where I flew. I got off the plane, went through a tin can like cavern and didn’t know where to find the show. Then I figured since it was in Colorado, maybe it was in a mountain. I started to feel lost, and then there was some writing scrawled on the rocks with an arrow pointing to the Daily Show. I followed it a short way and entered the mountain studio. It was the usual familiar set, and I felt like I knew some of the stars and other people were there from San Diego, including a local actor I know on Facebook, named Butch Dye or was it that famous guy he reminds me of ? Anyway, I woke up after this dream feeling victorious and excited. Maybe Stewart read one of my articles in eastcountymagazine.org about abused kids or other news or my novel, “Naked Skydiving,” and this was finally my chance to be famous or recognized for my work as a writer. It felt great!
A funny thing happened on the way into the Self Realization Fellowship last Sunday. I met a guy, named Rajiv, wearing Google Glass from UC San Diego who answered a few questions and let me try it on. When I asked to take his picture, he told me I could wear the glass and he took my picture. I. He said that glass should be on sale next year and the price would drop lower than the current one for developers, which is around $1,500.00.
