What was Cinderella thinking?

So, my roommate and I watched Disney's Cinderella the other day. It has been many long years since I have seen that movie. For those of you who have seen it, you may recall the song that she sings near the beginning of the movie. It's entitled, "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes." I honestly believe that she has absolutely no idea what she is talking about. Maybe she dreams of princes and riding off into the sunset with her new-found beau on a giant stallion, but I do not. My dreams do not consist of princes, sunsets, or stallions. My dreams include dorkfish, spiders, vampires locked in refridgerators, space, frog-people, doors that lead to different lives, freeways that move, flying beasts, scientists in need of rescue, and the list goes on. As you can see, my dreams are far from repeats of the ordinary life, and none of these things would I EVER wish for. They make for quite entertaining and sometimes rather horrifying (spiders) dreams, but I don't want these things invading my real life. That would just be way too weird...even for me. So, in conclusion I have to say that Cinderella must have been smokin somethin.

Why "dudefreakinspit"?

So, you may be asking "Why the junk is her URL "dudefreakinspit?" Well, I will tell you why. My life is surrounded by randomness and oddities, and this URL comes from one of those moments in my life. A friend and I had just become roommates. Neither one of us usually talks while sleeping, but for some reason we both decided to now that we were roommates. One early, early morning I woke up to her saying, "Barlow...Barlow." I jolted up because I thought I had slept in. I looked at the clock, looked at my friend and said, "What?" She responded with, "We have to take the blanket to Mordor." I said, "Huh?" She said, "Huh?" And I proceeded to tell her to go back to bed and I went back to bed myself. A week or so later I dreamt that I was just absolutely furious with someone and was venting to my roommate. I was so angry that I yelled, "Dude freakin spit!" Apparently, I yelled it loud enough to wake myself up and to somewhat disturb the sleep of my roommate.

So, there you have it. This blog will include all of the randomness and oddities that occur. Some, granted, are more amusing than others. However, I hope you enjoy them. If not, well who ever said you had to read my blog anyway?
