A Dream - That's All It Was

No Tuesday Review today. Tuesday Review is postponed until January. Thank you for your patience. Wait. Except I should be reviewing a Christmas book next week. And this week, before it's too late, you should probably order OHmommy's Polish Christmas book, Wigilia. I did. I can't wait till it arrives!

Now where was I? Oh! I dreamed last night, which is more unusual for me than it used to be. This dream I held on to so I could use an idea in real life.

We all know how dreams wander, popping in and out, mixing locales and scenarios from real life with fantasy, right? I was in some kind of shop - not quite a gift shop, not quite a crafting place - and admiring the goods. Wishing I could make some of the things in the store. No idea what kind of merchandise they sold. At some point I asked if they needed part-time help. The shop keep gave me an application and said she'd need to see a resume'.

A resume'? Really?

She offered me one of hers, so I'd get an idea of what she needed. Oh. Em. Gee. It was the coolest resume' ever. I want to write mine now, just so I can make one like the pretend resume in my dream.

You tell me - does this sound cool, or just lame?

It was printed on glossy paper. The info was in loose columns down the sides. The woman's avatar - yes, avatar - was at the top. Almost like a curtain drapes from the center of a window, there were deep red and gold sweeping down and away from the avatar, outlined in black. It was SO COOL.

Or was it just cool in my dreams? I'm going to design one and let you decide. And really? And avatar on a resume'? I mean, the woman was an artist, so it's possible.

What say you? Am I just going crazy?

Until I write again ...


P.S. Wigilia came! It's beautiful! Go look and get one for yourself!
