give me my tickets, little man

| | Comments (4)

Something has caused my recent dreams to be much more emotionally charged. I keep waking up with the residual feelings that I've expressed in my sleep.
The last dream I had before waking up was one of standing in line. There was a crowd of well-dressed people in an old theater, so old that it seemed musty. The lines were not well-managed, people kept cutting in front of each other and me. By the time my wife and I got to the counter, we were already concerned about being late for whatever performance it was we were attending.
After shuffling through stacks of tickets and making a phone call, the kid behind the counter informed me that although they had a record of my purchase, my tickets were being held at Will Call in Edna (a small Texas town neighboring my hometown). I assured him (not calmly) that I had explicitly stated that I wanted the tickets held at this location, and I wanted them now.
After I realized getting angry was getting me nowhere (and also after sticking my head through the ticket window and shouting at the employee), I asked for the manager so I could at least be mad at someone in charge.
After about another 10 minutes, the manager finally found our tickets. They were in an envelope with my father-in-law's name on it. For some reason he had used our credit card recently, which transferred all our purchases into his name. The manager gave us a plate of chicken and mashed potatoes to make up for the mistake. We sat down to eat, but I worried the entire time about missing the first part of the show.
We never made it into the theater.

Nothing like potatoes and chicken to calm an outraged customer; better yet, chicken and *waffles.*

I recently tried your greymatter mod for the popup comments. Everything seems to be working fine, but I was wondering why I can't put the previous comments up above the form. When I try that, there's a 'null' comment left by 'null'. Is there some way to change this so I can get the comments on the same page as the comment form? I know absolutely nothing about cgi and perl programming, so I can't fix it myself. Thanks in advance. ^_^

Ok, I have a mod that seems to be working now...I'll send you an email with the info.

Sounds to me like your dream is indicating that you have buried years of abuse in your subconsious.
