Two days ago my friend S called me up and asked me if I was looking for some work. S is a flack for a big PR firm.
"My savior," I squealed. "I could totally use some work."
"It's not exactly the most honest work."
"Well, it's your lucky day! I'm a whore," I said. "Pimp me, baby."
So I had to go undercover to a press conference given by a competitor of one of S' clients and take notes on the presentation and find out which members of the media were there. Apparently there's some sort of fucked "honor" code amongst PR people wherein they won't actually go check out their competitor's press conferences themselves - they just hire someone else to go instead. Skullduggery is what it's called, and I'm sure if I weren't Jewish and believed in that shit, I'd probably be going to hell.
Whatevs. I made enough money in four hours yesterday to pay my rent next month.
I've got a new recurring dream. I'm in bed with a man, usually a man I know in real life. Five different men have appeared in these dreams (no, not at the same time, you pervs.) We're kissing and fondling each other with our clothes on, and then either someone will walk into the room without knocking or one of us will get up and wander away.
This is followed by dreamy wandering through that old familiar/unfamiliar house, and then eventually, my lover and I will meet and start kissing and fondling again. The physical parts always feel very real to me, and arouse me. I think there may be times when I actually moan out loud in my sleep.
And then again, we are interrupted for some reason, and this happens over and over, and each time we get further and further but still not close enough to actually getting naked. We say sweet things to each other, but we're just easily distracted and can't finish anything. These dreams are always ultimately pleasant, and I am never terribly angry that I don't get to have sex.
What's interesting is that even though I've had all of these sex dreams about men I actually know, it has no impact on my relationship with them whatsoever; I don't feel any differently about them, don't see them in a different light. I learned a long time ago that having an erotic dream about someone does not neccesarily mean I want them.
Congrats to Tammy and Lucas on the engagement. You guys rock. I love you both.
