Professor Charles Francis Xavier

Writing update: I am very sleepy. So, that short story I was going to write is for a certain fellowship. Let's call it X. Yes, it's only for mutants. I started to fill out the application for X, and it asks why you want to work for X, and, honestly, I don't. I know that I'm supposed to be good at writing, i.e. bullshitting things, but I really wasn't feeling it. So, I have an outline and beginning of a short story that I will finish up this next weekend, even though I don't plan on sending it to X anymore. Maybe I'll change my mind. Maybe, if I take some X pills (?), everything will suddenly become clear to me, and I can bullshit about wanting to work for X until I stop melting into the couch. Look, all I know about ecstasy, I learned from the Dawson's Creek episode aptly titled "Great Xpectations." In other news, I polished up my Cougar Town and sent that off, and I have started writing my pilot.

Today, I finished this:

This is a clear example of the age-old equation: 0 shame + infinity time = youtube.

Whatever, I really like the people that work on the show, and whether I ever get to work there or not, I'd love for them to stay in business for another season. So, do as this clip strongly suggests and watch the show. Okay? Thanks, thanks.

There's obviously no theme to this post, so I'm just going to bring up something else I feel like bringing up. Last night, I had pretty action packed dreams. One of my friends was shot, and, so, this guy and I had to try to figure out who the shooter was. Right before I woke up, my dreams became a promo for "next night's dreams." It literally said, "Only two nights left before the story comes to. a. dramatic. conclusion." The periods represent all the dramatic pauses where pictures of people in my dreams flashed on "screen." And then the promo ended with the sound of a gunshot. 

This is really interesting to me because I would love it if, in fact, when I go to sleep tonight, I get to see the continuation of the story. I know that's not how it works, but that would be awesome. Television even for my sleeping mind! I really want to know what happens too because this "episode" ended with the guy helping me discovering that the guy helping my friend is actually the one who shot her (!!!!). If that isn't a May Sweeps storyline, then I don't know what is. 

Now, the promo did come after I had already woken up once, and then I went back to sleep. Is my conscious mind so television-obsessed that I shaped my dreams into a serial drama? This is kind of cool because when I woke up, I finished the story how I though it would end up. But, what if my conscious mind is so television-obsessed that my subconscious created the perfect dream for me? Television all the time, always! Either way, I woke up from the dream feeling like I had just watched an episode of Castle meets Grey's Anatomy.... so Rizzoli & Isles, but with more dudes.

Whatever, now I have a reason to look forward to sleep other than sleep.
