yyyyyyeeeaaa. So I've been having pretty random dreams.

This time, I was back in Sinthanee 1, except the houses were more modern, fancier and bigger. I realized my neighbors were all FLC people (Darren/Tammy's learning centre in ChiangRai). I was at some form of party in one of their houses where there was this room that led to the outdoors. Yea.. like, the woods. But it starts off as a room. hmm, kinda like the Narnia concept now that I think of it.Anyway, so I'm outside of this room and watching the younger kids play in the pool (yes, the house had a pool) while the bunch of kids closer to my age are all in that room planning. It was some kind of play, I think.

This went on for quite a while (the details fuzz up here) and the next scene I remember is of Rachel Fox ..She's in a long flowy robe/gown, leading everyone else into the woods. There's a lot of nice wind at this point (for the robe to blow-in-the-wind to create drama, I assume).Most of the FLC kids are following her and everyone's happily chatting and planning this play..or maybe it was some kinda reality-....um..reality...story? *insert more fuzz*

The next scene goes into a university hall. It's full of farang people and these include again, the FLC ppl..
This time, though, I'm with Hsu Lynn (my Malaysian-Kiwi friend,heehee) ....and we're rushing to make it for an audition in this hall. We're late - "everyone else has already auditioned", but then Hsu Lynn takes centerstage (insert "oooooh"). All eyes are on her. I take a front row seat.

(at this point in my dream, I have no clue what she's auditioning for, only that she seems to be vying for a really difficult but great spot and I seem to be there to support her)

Hsu Lynn starts a dance routine. It's kinda like modern-jazzy-contemporary-ish.
At first I don't get it. So I start to worry about what the judges will think.
Then she starts to pull these interesting moves that, though I never saw the other auditions, I thought none of them would have done.

There's this pretty judge who seems to be the leader. (i think i knew her in the dream but it's all fuzz now). She starts to whisper to the other judges pointing out happily at Hsu Lynn as she dances.Then she stands up and announces in some fuzzy language that Hsu Lynn is chosen (I don't think I ever knew what it was for...)


Yyyyyyeaaaa. So I've been having pretty random dreams.

I repeat, "irregardless" is an oxymoron.

I was about to type into my facebook status "Joni Lynne does not understand why the word "irregardless" continues to circulate". Then I thought, hey, let's google it.

Google knows all.

I found two enlightening-and-then-depressing definitions from dictionary.com.

READ.

ir⋅re⋅gard⋅less
  /ˌɪrɪˈgɑrdlɪs/
–adverb Nonstandard. regardless.
Origin: 1910–15; ir- 2 (prob. after irrespective) + regardless

Usage note: Irregardless is considered nonstandard because of the two negative elements ir- and -less. It was probably formed on the analogy of such words as irrespective, irrelevant, and irreparable. Those who use it, including on occasion educated speakers, may do so from a desire to add emphasis (Ahh, could this really be so??). Irregardless first appeared in the early 20th century and was perhaps popularized by its use in a comic radio program of the 1930s.

Usage Note
: Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so.

oh, tragic.

in the spirit of 1Malaysia...

i read this somewhere today:

"....I'd quite like to win, so I'm hoping all of you can help by logging onto xxxxxxxx and voting for me on there (there's a thing that says muslims shouldn't vote, but I think that's not very 1Malaysia, so just lie).


haha, quite amusing in an actually-not-that-funny way.
