June 10, 2009-June 11, 2009 – I was listening to a sports radio show with these two guys discussing fantasy baseball. One of them was going on about how Chad Billingsley had been lights out so far this year. Then he was saying how A-Rod hadn’t been playing very A-Rod-like and that some other guy had been playing A-Rod-like, or something like that. Whenever the other guy tried to say anything, the first guy vehemently disagreed with him.

Kumar Must Make It to Court

October 9, 2008-October 10, 2008 – I was watching the new Harold and Kumar movie.  Someone in Kumar’s house knocked him out with chloroform.  Then he awoke at a park, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit.  Then his girlfriend showed up.  He had to do something to prevent himself from being arrested.  Then Greg Kinnear and a pregnant Debra Messing walked by.  Kumar stared at Debra Messing, and this made his girlfriend upset, but he explained that he was thinking about getting a lawyer.  I understood that this pair of people made him think of getting a lawyer because Greg Kinnear was in court during much of his new movie, Flash of Genius.

August 13, 2007-August 14, 2007 – I was watching a football game: the Cowboys versus the Bills.  The Cowboys kicked off, and … the Patriots (in white uniforms) caught the ball.  As they returned the kick, their opponents appeared – more Patriots (in blue uniforms).  Then they became the Bills.  I was somewhere with my family.  Uncle Marty called me on my phone.  He was telling me what Final Jeopardy was.  I turned the telly on to Jeopardy!  The clue was, “Suicide bombers did this as they jumped into the Arctic Ocean near this country.”  I thought the country was Australia; my dad guessed Denmark.  The answer was Denmark.  I had been thinking Australia because I had been thinking of the Indian Ocean, instead of the Arctic.  But I thought that the answer was going to be what the suicide bombers did, not the country.

August 12, 2011-August 13, 2011 – I was watching Final Jeopardy with Dad, Mom, and Aunt Beth.  It was a repeat of a tournament, so I had seen this episode before.  The clue was about a rocker.  I immediately and confidently said Perry Farrell.  Dad and Aunt Beth continued to discuss the clue.  The first contestant had said “Dave Navarro,” and that was correct.  Then I felt silly for getting Perry Farrell mixed up with Dave Navarro.  I should have known right away that it was Dave Navarro.

Friday Night Fun

March 25, 2011-March 26, 2011 – It was Friday night.  There was a boxing match going on.  It was also a basketball game.  I was in my gym clothes, as I had just come from gym class.  I found Rob working at his computer.  He was working on a plan involoving coupons.  He was contacting Armond White, who he was working with on this plan.

November 14, 2010-November 15, 2010 – I walked downstairs into the kitchen.  Mom was by the sink.  She was talking about something on SNL from the Jane Lynch episode.  I wanted to make sure that she saw it as well.  I thought of the Back to the Future screen tests, but as I considered it, I was pretty sure that that sketch wasn’t from that episode.  Then I got to tracking down my SNL tape and finding the sketch that Mom wanted to see.

Dogtopi

April 16, 2010-April 17, 2010 – There was this creature on the floor.  It looked like an octopus, but it had only four legs.  There was a growth forming at the end of each of its legs.  The growths appeared to be forming into new living creatures.  I walked around this thing into the next room.  One of its legs reached out into my way.  It seemed like it was trying to communicate to me in some way.  I leaned in to try to listen to it, but it had no way of speaking English, and I had no way of understanding it.  Then the growths popped off and turned into dogs.  One was a St. Bernard, one was a Doberman Pinscher, one was a medium-small dog with curly white fur, and I forget what the fourth one was.  I went upstairs to get something.  The dogs followed me up.  The white dog really bounded up quickly.  Then I came back downstairs to work on something with some people.  Then I realized what time it was – about 4:30 – and that I hadn’t run yet today.  This wasn’t the time of day when I would want to run, and I wasn’t going to have time to run tomorrow since I had to leave early.  I didn’t want to take off from running two days in a row.  I started talking out loud about my dilemma.  Someone who was working with me on this project said, “Fine, Jeff, we’ll let you go run and we’ll work on this now.”
