Secretariat, He Ain't

I had a dream that I was being chased by a policewoman for some sort of violation (traffic, I think). The policewoman was on some sort of police covered-wagon, which, in itself, was odd. However, what really stuck me was that the single horse pulling the police wagon only had two legs. The two other legs (if I remember correctly, front-right and rear-left) were wooden peg legs. So I was being chased by a horse with two wooden peg legs, and the peg legs were making a peculiar noise as they struck the ground and policewoman and prosthesis-laden horse chased me.

They were closing on me, but then I woke up. I had to pee. Weird huh?

Post script: I did a search for peg-legged horses and this is what I got. Interesting, but not what the police horse looked like. Oh well. Maybe I'll draw a picture.

For the History Buffs

Did you know that on this day, October 25, in 1616, Dutch sea captain Dirk Hartog made the second recorded landfall by a European on Australian soil? He made landfall at Dirk Hartog Island, off of the Western Australian coast. Pretty ironic place for him to land huh?

Also, today is World Pasta Day. So if you're on the Atkins Diet, take a break and have a carb. The World Pasta Congress demands it.

Shampoo is Good, Conditioner is Better

For most of my life, whenever I showered I washed my entire body and then finished with the shampoo. Then one day I decided that I should shampoo first and work my way down. It's worked out great ever since.
