M and I watched the Johnny Depp “Sleepy Hollow” over New Year’s. We’re huge fans of most anything that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp do together (Edward Scissorhands, The Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd [which we also saw over the holiday], etc.)
That night I had a nightmare about the headless horseman coming after M and myself. But you know how dreams always change everything… In mine he was on foot but accompanied by a big black poodle (?!?) and at one point the headless horseman, M, several other folks and I were standing around talking about what we do. I mentioned that I was finishing up my dissertation and the hoseman soundly mocked me for my lack of recent progress.
It’s enough that I have to put up with that from real people but now I have to take it from figments of my own imagination? C’mon!
Since then I’ve gotten an important chunk of chapter 5 written up with hopefuly more to follow soon…
