Something Wicked This Way Comes

That's the name of the movie that was my dream last night. It was part action movie, part horror movie, part How to Train Your Dragon, and it starred

There was even a logo for this dream/movie, and it looks suspiciously like the WuTang W.... I'll chalk that up to my watching a lot of old Dave Chappelle lately. So there was an invasion by some lynx-looking dragon monsters, there was Brandon, there were cribs in trees (no, I don't understand that either), there was Brandon without a shirt, there was a cruise ship that completely submerged as part of it's amazing tour, and everyone was just supposed to KNOW to hold their breath when it went under, making me fear for the lives of all babies and small children aboard. Just as we were starting to figure out how to defeat, or at least not become dinner for, these dragon things, I woke up.
And now, some gratuitous Brandon Boyd pictures, for my viewing pleasure.

Last night, at bed time, Isaiah was fighting sleep, and fighting for more time to stay up. After a few minutes of sitting with the kids, I shut off the TV, which made Isaiah sulk. Since I ignored his sulking, he started harrumphing. Finally I asked explained that school is starting this week, so they’ve got to start getting to bed earlier. While I said this, I was rubbing his back. With tears in his eyes, he told me that he was angry and he pulled away from me. So I asked, “Do you want me to leave you alone?” He nodded solemnly. As I stood up, he said, “But you don’t have to go.”
I actually started to laugh. So, you want me to leave you alone, but you don’t want me to leave? He said, “Yes. You can stay. But you can’t touch me.” Again, I laughed. As I sat back down, he softened his stance. He reached for my hand and said, “But I can touch you as much as I want.” So I let him hold my hand. Then he said, “Ok, you can touch me one time. You know, in case you want to give me a hug.” Which turned into, “Well, you can touch me two times.” When I reached over and put my hand on his back, he gave in and said, “You can touch me ten thousand million times. No, infinity times.”
So of course, I stayed with him until he fell asleep :)
