Movember in my dreams

Dreamed I was due to go to a studio meeting, but I had forgotten where it was or how to get there: I kept thinking I should go to Edinburgh from Kings Cross, but I don't think that's right - I think it's Euston station for the north. Just happened to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror - big strands of hair on the side of my upper lip and enormous sideburns! Couldn't go anywhere like that, so tried to find depilatory kit - failed. Bought disposable razors instead and shaved all the excess hair off.

Next thing, I stared in the mirror and my face was blackened, not like a black person but like someone with ink or soot under their skin, or extremely severe bruising. It was concentrated on the centre of my face, not the edges. When I put pressure on the bruising/ink, it disappeared, but it would return when I let go. squintywitch was there, helping me, giving me good advice, and eventually it did disappear.

I never treat vine touched dreams too seriously as indicators of my psyche's health, but some of it relates very easily to my recent thoughts. I have always been vain - not crazy vain, but vain enough. I like to look good, or look the way I want to look, whether others like it or not. Got my hair cut, now don't know whether to let it grow or crop it back. I like my hair short, I like my hair long; the inbetween bit lasts forever and irritates me. Cropping it now means my ears and neck will be exposed, if I don't crop it, I will look like an unruly shrub.

Clearly I have no real problems.

Perhaps you need some surreal problems to consider.
There's one that drifted into my head some decades ago and has never really left.

"Why is it that you can't tune a polar bear to anything other than BBC2"

It troubles me, it really does...

Bicarbonate of Soda?

It's the answer to most things...

It's a good base for other answers.
