YELLOW PTERODACTYL

I seem to have unsettling restaurant dreams whenever I eat hot wings after 9:30pm. Last night I dreamt that I was having dinner at some horrible place… a lot like Ruth Chris, but with just a hint of Beyond Thunder-Dome; more studded leather, fire and blood-thirsty snarling than the actual Ruth Chris.

The featured dish of the night was giant squid, paraded around alive in a 30 foot long aquarium by two brutish waitresses (in studded leather) while it writhed and splashed. The other patrons seemed to delight at the site, but when I looked into it's eyes I had a moment of horror and ordered chicken instead.

On the way out, I got a peak at the following nights featured dish; a sickly yellow Pterodactyl with the face of a person, splayed out on a bed of ice, and decided to never go back.

TATTUCANS

Last night I dreamt that two birds flew down with needle guns and gave me a tattoo across my shoulders while I was standing in a meadow. If I remembered what it was of, and I knew birds that could tattoo, I would totally have it done in real life.

BLUE STREAK


I took this with my phone out front of my house. To my eye it looked like a stripe cut out of a cloud. I don't know how this happens.
