"you sure are cute for a bundle of neuroses"

Dreamt, among other things, that I was given a nice calligraphy brush set so I spent the night glazing pots. Sorry, no celebrity citings in my dreams today!

Last night I am in bed with the beagle next to me and the wife sits down on my feet.
I am like
"get off my feet! I'll have a panic attack!"
and she is like "panic attack???" and I am like
"YES! Its not a preference, its a psychological hangup!!!!" and she is like
"you sure are cute for a bundle of neuroses" which is true, I am like full of odd hangups and anxieties but then she can see the little lightbulb pop up above my head, and I am reaching for a note pad and she is like
"you're not writing this down to blog it are you???" but she hands me a pencil and tells the dog
"he sure is cute for a bundle of neuroses" and finally got off my feet.

Wow, this tune was all over the radio when I was a kid, and this video is SOMETHING ELSE

Veryyyy clever, Maude. I like it. I think I'll use it on Brian.

Lovely teapot, super cute piggie! Look at the cute ears going two different directions. It's like he's an inquisitive piggie.

i guess we're all bundles of neuroses, it's just that we think the neuroses others have are not good ones and the ones we have aren't so bad. that's pretty neurotic. that's one bright yellow glaze on the teapot... i like the big handle. was off the grid yesterday and noticed the vid you sent and in a previous post. i see why you see a resemblance to the bug... mostly the hairdo but some of the faces she makes too. mom didn't think so tho.

I, too, love that phrase "bundle of neurosis"
I'm now neurotic because I didn't think of it first.

BTW, the scary thing about that Rod Stewart video is he looks strikingly like Bonnie Tyler, circa 1983 (Total Eclipse of the Heart) and they have the same voice.
Are they the same person?

I love the yellow tea pot! You're not doing too badly for a beginner analyst:)
