I’ve been wishing I had a Jeannie bottle to climb into…. It always looked so cool and comfortable in there! As long as your evil darker head’d cousin doesn’t nab your home bottle, plug it up and send you off away to a cruel master or anything. Ah, to dream. Alas, my head has been hurting too badly to even dream.

You see, I fall prey to horrible migraines from time to time. Luckily, not all that often. However, when they do hit they kill! I had one Sunday night going into Monday morning and then another Monday afternoon and then a third hit last night. First partially blinded by lights then pain that leaves one wondering how to move without causing the brain to pop. I gave up and called my doctor’s office this morning as I can’t afford to miss another day of work. After a bit of begging and some annoying/painful examinations I was given a shot! …in the bum. At first, I felt kind of hot and then I tossed my Diet Coke (so to speak), then I was made to lay down for about 10 minutes, then I was told to take a cab home, stay out of the heat and rest for the remainder of the day. And, I will be good to go to work tomorrow! My head doesn’t even hurt that bad anymore! Actually, I didn’t even use a cab! No. I’m tough. I took the bus home! I was feeling really pretty good, but then I felt kind of woozy and have been on the sofa ever since.

Bored, my mind floated back to the idea of taking a nap in Jeannie’s bottle! Seems to me that the interior was sometimes black and pink or all pinks and reds. Either way, it looked so cool! Of course, one would have to find a way to get very tiny or secure a really big bottle. I don’t think I’d look very good dressed as like Jeannie. Perhaps I could pull off an Aladan sort of look. Well, if there was a proper shirt. Maybe by end of summer I could do vest only, but for now there would have to be both a shirt and a vest.

Anyway, tis but a dream…

There is a really talented fellow in LA who makes Jeannie bottles. I mentioned him in my last post, but you can visit his site at — and, if you’ve got the $$$ you can get one!!! Actually, considering that they are each unique, brass and painted with the same sort of paint one uses for a new car — it is well worth it! I have been saving my coins in a full-on pig bank which I hope to send me and B to Paris/London. However, reality has set in and I know that my savings won’t get me as far as LA. But, if I play my spare change right I just might be able to afford my very own brass Jeannie bottle by my 41st bday!!!! Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be able to fit in the bottle.

Now, I know thatSHE said that there is one that could make me smaller, but I don’t think SHE meant it in a literal way. Sigh.

    My darling Matt, drinking diet coke only exacerbates migraines. Now, am I going to have to come down there and take care of you! I want Jeannie’s couch but I always felt claustrophic thinking about living in the bottle and I was partial to her evil twin. Go figure. Hope you’re feeling better. xo

    Oh Matty, don’t go to the dark side, even when you’re in despair. Dealing with the evil sister Jeannie will only get a boy in trouble.

    Are you still talking about those bottles? I was asking my boss about getting reimbursed for the New Age show and I mentioned that you came along. She asked how you liked it, and I told her all about the bottles. Which color would you like, if you could choose one?

    Oh, I told my friend Dahlia that you used to be kind of new-agey, and she said that she could tell that by looking at you. I wonder what she meant. Anyway, I’d keep that in mind when you’re deciding on your look for the genie-bottle outfit.

    p.s. Have your ears been burning lately? Do you like how I’m publicizing you?

    Lovely Meredith — You know, I know that they say that about my magic drink of choice, Diet Coke — but I swear! It makes my head feel better — as does chocolate! I understand the fear of being locked into a bottle. But, I am most happy in small spaces. I get creep’d out in large spaces. I’m spacially – challenged.

    I was always jealous whenever I saw the episode where Jeannie caught her evil sister and put her in a perfume bottle. I’d love being trapped in a bottle of nice perfume. I would.

    Daniel — I’m a boy who lives for trouble. In fact, “trouble” is my middle name.

    …or is that “Troubled”? …I can never quite remember.

  7. matty03 replied:

    Ing! I do so wonder what that means. But I was quite new agey for quite a while. I did tarot. I had my auras read. I went to psychic fairs and workshops. I read Joseph Campbell. I was a new age roller! Now, I’m far too busy. …or is that lazy? I can never quite remember!

    No! You may not get me a Jeannie bottle! Too expensive. I shall buy myself one this fall! I shall! I shall get the prettiest one most close to the evil sister’s bottle. …which is sort of a cobalt blue/black thing going on! (I think)

    Have I been PR’d!?!?!?

    I’m so excited!!!! I want to know more!

    My ears were burning! I figured it was the shot from yesterday but it was the magical powers of PR!!!!!

    Water, water water Matt. Drinking more Coke, Diet Coke, in your case wouldn’t help much. Your body needs H20 mister, good plain ole water lol

    That’s cool someone can tell you were new-agey just by looking at you. How are those tarot card/palm reading thing anyways? I’ve been meaning to the longest but get nervous about it somehow.

    My uncle read my palm like three years ago and I don’t remember a damn thing about what he said teehee.

  9. matty03 replied:

    Kris – What is this thing you call “water”? LOL! I never got much out of all of it. When I stood back it just seemed all too vague to mean much of anything. I do believe in a Higher Power and I think that there are folks who are gifted in those areas — but I’m not sure I want to tap into the future. I’d rather it just come up on me as surprise. Keeps it interesting, you know?
