I think last night was the first time I've ever been awakened by a thunderstorm. I knew we were supposed to have one sometime, but I went to bed around 11. At 1:30, there was a crash of thunder right over my head, and my room lit up even though my shades were drawn. I pulled up the shades on both my windows and sat at the head of my bed with my face right up next to the window, which I know I'm not supposed to do, and watched the lightning arc through the sky. I never saw any of it actually touch down anywhere. It came with real regularity, too, about every two seconds. Disappointingly, there were no more real crashes of thunder, just rumbles. I watched for about five minutes then decided I was very sleepy and went back to bed. It was very cool.

I also had a dream...it was weird. My mom and brother and I had moved somewhere and were desperate for jobs, so we went into this warehouse/department store and asked if they were hiring. The boss-type was very short and skinny, and he was bald on top (except for a fringe) and he had an enormous bushy mustache and very thick glasses. He was extremely happy to hire us (and I personally thought he'd been into the caffeine pills) and all the other workers seemed to like their job. They sat around at a long table talking and eating lunch, and for some reason I fell asleep and fell out of my chair. I was asleep but could hear what they were saying. They were talking about taking off my pants and putting me in an orange diaper, just for the hell of it, and I thought that was pretty funny. But when the guy sitting next to me put his hand on my ass, I kicked out with my foot. I think I got his nose. The others laughed.

Then I think I was chased through the warehouse by some guys who wanted to kill me or kidnap me or something. There was a little girl I had to protect. She was really adorable, and I was scared for her. We were suddenly on a ship (Titanic-esque) and it was tilting, and I knew were were about to go over the side. I tried to get to the life vests, but I couldn't.

Then I woke up.
