August 6, 2008-August 7, 2008 – I was looking at a list of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.  The best were King Lear (any of the printed versions) and then after that was what simultaneously appeared to be Othello, Macbeth, and Hamlet.  Then the other best ones were listed.  I went through the plays in this list to see if it made sense.  When I got to the top, I was thinking that Lear had to be number one and that Hamlet seemed like a really appropriate choice.

July 1, 2007-July 2, 2007 – I was thinking about how I was going to go out and run around the block today.  I was in a car, and the person driving it was about to drop me off so that I could go run.  Then I was watching Titanic.  Jack asked Rose if they were going to be together, and she said, “no.”  Then he said, “What about all those times that we had together?”  Then it cut to a montage of scenes of the two of them walking past each other.  Then Rose said, “Just because you’re the most (something) person ever doesn’t mean I love you.”

Whose Line Goes Glam

December 6, 2006-December 7, 2006 – I was watching Whose Line is it Anyway? with Mom.  For the opening, the camera was on Drew at his desk.  Before he introduced the performers, he was going through a bit of spiel.  He pretended to get flustered, saying “fuck” and giving the middle finger with both hands.  Mom was like, “Oh, jeez.”  So I was like, “Mom, you know, he’s just kidding.”  Then he introduced the performers.  They weren’t in their chairs to begin with.  Instead, they were standing offstage, and they walked over to their chairs once their names were called.  They were wearing bright and glittery, tight-fitting clothing.  They looked like glam rockers.  Colin was introduced last, but he was still sitting in the third seat.  He had this red wreath-like thing on around his head.  Then, Colin was going to sing a song, while backed by Wayne and Ryan.  It was going to be a Bowie song.  Then, I was Colin, and Wayne and Ryan were just some guys.  I sang “All the Young Dudes.”  After a few minutes, the song took an instrumental break, and I got on the floor and started to dance.  I told the guy who was sitting at the recording desk (we were now in a recording studio) that I would be done in a minute.  He said, “okay,” got up, and talked with someone.  I got up after the break was over and tried to start singing again, but my backup guys didn’t want to continue after seeing me dance.  They had wanted to play a Ramones song, possibly a Ramones song also called “All the Young Dudes.”  I then wondered why I had played “All the Young Dudes,” seeing as how it didn’t fit the theme of my Magic Mix show this week, which was “Song Titles That Are Also Movie Titles.”

The Ottawa Phillies

February 17, 2011-February 18, 2011 – Baseball tickets for the upcoming season had recently gone on sale.  I was coordinating with Jeff the Phillies tickets that we would be buying.  I had immediately, and rather haphazardly, headed to Ottawa to buy tickets to the Ottawa Phillies, one of their minor league teams.  While I was in line, I was wondering if it really made sense to buy Ottawa tickets.  I was pretty sure that Greg and Jeff were currently buying Phils tickets.  I knew we were planning on buying a package deal for a closer minor league team.  I started to think of how long it would take me, Jeff, Walt, and Dave to make it to Ottawa.  It was closer than, say, Vancouver, but it would still take a while.  If it were a night game, we could stay at a hotel and leave the next day.  We could stay the night before if we had to.  Money wouldn’t really be an issue.  Then I started to wonder how I seemed to have gotten to Ottawa so quickly this time.  Then I went to meet up with Jeff and Greg.

September 10, 2010-September 11, 2010 – I was watching Community.  It was taking place at the movie theatre.  I was at box office and the service desk.  The gang had ordered some food.  The delivery guy this time was the delivery guy who looked like Sawyer from Lost.  Annie kicked Jeff in the balls, because they kicked Jeff in the balls whenever this delivery guy showed up.  I think the restaurant he was from was called El Diablo.  The gang was finally able to alert Sawyer that this delivery guy was here before he left.  Sawyer came running down to see him.  I remained close to see what would happen once they saw each other.  Sawyer tried to walk in through the service door, and the door got between them.  Then the delivery guy was able to sneak out without Sawyer getting a hold of him.  Then he walked through the lobby, his back to Sawyer.  Sawyer grabbed him by the shoulder and tried to turn him around, but couldn’t at first.  Finally, they were facing each other.  This guy looked like Sawyer except insofar as he had braces.  They had a conversation, in which Sawyer tried to figure out what was going on.

March 16, 2010-March 17, 2010 – I was looking at the results for Thursday’s opening round March Madness games in the paper on Friday morning.  It looked like all the top seeds had won.  Temple had won, which disappointed me because I had picked Cornell to win two games.  Then I saw that Cornell had beaten Purdue (or was it Georgetown?).  It seemed that Cornell, Siena, and one other team had switched spots in their brackets.  I figured that the selection committee was trying something new this year.

November 15, 2009-November 16, 2009 – I was watching an episode of Family Guy.  There was a gag in which several of the characters took the shape of an object from the 1950’s.  Stewie was a milk carton, and I forget what Brian was.  He might have been a street pole.  A Loyola teacher was there.  Then all of the characters were transported to a new setting.
