weird, weird stuff...

Very strange things have been happening to me lately. I mean, freak-me-out-a-little-bit strange. A few examples:

1. I sat down the other night and randomly decided to write a letter to my friend Matthew in Savannah, not something that happens often. I mail it the next day, come home, check my mail, and lo & behold, what do I find but a postcard from Matthew!!! Just as I'm telling this story to someone at work, Matthew's dad (a good family friend) pops his head in the door! Kinda odd, right?

2. The other day, Dad & I were riding in the car and I started telling him about how I haven't seen any turtles in the road this year at all (he & I are notorious for stopping & getting turtles out of the road). This conversation went on for a good 5 or 10 minutes, mind you. So I get up and start driving to work the next morning and what do I see? Of course, a turtle. I was even on the SAME ROAD where I'd been talking about it the night before!!! Then....that same night on the way home but on a different road, you guessed it -- another freaking turtle!!! 2 turtles in 1 day!!!

This time, I couldn't resist and had to turn around and try to help the little guy (he wasn't even close to being out of the road). What I got, however, was more upsetting than expected -- the red-eared slider had already been "knicked" by a car and about 1/8 of the front left quarter of his shell was gone and there was a gaping hole, but he otherwise seemed alert and able to move. Next thing you know, I'm nearly in tears calling my dad asking what I should do, bleeding turtle at my feet and turtle blood on my fingers, when a sheriff's deputy pulls up. Great, lights a-flashin'... But together we decide that the little guy had a good chance of making it and it was worth giving him a fair shot (I just didn't want him to suffer unnecessarily, you know?), so I let him go in a much safer ditch/culvert that goes UNDER the road!

Not to mention (or rather TO mention), I have this recurring dream about "taking in" an unnaturally enormouse tortoise in my backyard (always at my old house), and sometimes he even talks & communicates. Thing is, in the dream, I often forget to feed him and go outside when I finally remember and he's just gone. I mean, really, can you blame him?
(note to self: look up meaning of turtle dreams)

3. A few weeks ago, I dreamed that Lindsay Lohan stole all my stuff just to be a bitch (in the dream, "my stuff" is not necessarily my real stuff), including a fur coat. And of all the stuff, the fur coat was what REALLY upset me the most for some reason... Cut to a few weeks later and I read in one of my gossip rags that the little skank really is being sued for allegedly stealing some girl's fur coat from a party!!! I mean, WTF!?


Seriously, I could go on and on with all these coincidences and odd occurrences, it's just bizarre. I think of someone, they call. I daydream about something, someone else starts talking about it. It's cRaZy, I tell you, just plain weird... Or, ahem, umm, maybe I am!!! :)

I know!!! And you know me, I'm such a sucker for animals, it was probably hurting me more than it was hurting him!!! But we tried... ;)
