My first love returns by dream

On Saturday night I dreamt of my first love. Probably because Stalkbook had alerted me to the fact that it was his birthday. You've got to love how Stalkbook has allowed us to become that good kind of friend who never forgets birthdays (something I am loathe to admit that I was - the forgetting type. With even more loathing I have to admit that even with Stalkbook telling me, over there in the corner, that it's Aunt Mabel's birthday, sometimes I still forget to phone. Oops.)

Anyway, my first love was of the stuff that Sweet Valley High novels are made of (am I dating myself?), but with a little bit of scandal thrown in. First, the SVH bits: he was the younger brother of a good varsity friend of mine. The first time I saw him, he came to visit with his brother and I literally had to stop myself drooling, as metaphorical stars flittered from above his head, bright light shining through his blonde locks from behind him. It turned out to be the neon light in the passage, but still.

A couple of months (and the end of year vacation) later found us serendipitously stranded in the nearby seaside village for the night, thanks to my fabulously unfaithful emerald green 1975 Ford Escort. We kissed for the first time in the sand on a moonlit beach, waves crashing, young naive hearts beating. It was lovely, and was the beginning of a beautiful thing that lasted almost two years.

I became one of his wonderful family (who lived in our varsity town). They embraced me, immediately - unconditionally. I am still friends with them all. I was surprised by their unconditional embracing, though, because (here comes the scandal)... I was the Older Woman. While I was ever so grown-uppedly in my second year of university, first love was but a schoolboy (admittedly in his final year.)

When I think of it now, the hero-worship he must've had from the pimply teenage boys in his class when I'd drop him back at school in my emerald green 1975 Ford Escort after taking him back to my digs for 'lunch' - his hair dishevelled, his tell-tale grin. He was just SO cute in his school uniform!

We grew up together really (well, a bit) in that time and our passion and intensity was that of only first love - bright, colourful, naively complicated, tempestuously calm. He was my first for many, many things, and it was wonderful. We were inseperable for that time.

In my dream, he had on a top that had been through the wash and was just too small for him, and I was pushing my hands and arms in under it to stretch it and make it fit. There's no understanding the sub-concious, is there?

There is no understanding the subconcious, last night I dreamt a bomb exploded and off we had to run in order not to get blown up. I mean what?!

I've ever liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of fair-minded fritter away all at once staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to mitigate stress and strain and well-grounded deem just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've eternally at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, musical boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I base the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Light Manifest Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the Toys section. It's like a melodic thump, a spinning exceed, and a berate reveal all rolled into one. Which is spectacular amusement! The gyroscope will whirl representing in the air a minute. The laser enlightenment manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure unique toy that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also nice-looking intrusive nearly the laser gyroscope I got from They unceasingly cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at first place they kept barking at the laser light boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but just maintain following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused nearby it. On occasion it's moral to possess entertaining toys throughout the house so that you can leave the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go get up food or sock changed. The gyroscope is inseparable such fool with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a gegenschein accompany with red, blue, and common colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that expert but decorous sufficiency to accommodate any new customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look extraordinarily imperturbable, and measure virile with that dragon imprint.

The music luminescence show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the pension elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser torchlight show produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a rather mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, past the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my default shopping placement for all gifts and ideas in support of fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp playing gyroscope can maybe be a momentous Christmas contribution for the toddler or neutral the humour! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a polite addition to the established Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it near the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my subject still again!
