Drama Dreaming: TOP Heavy!

I'm sure we've all had them.  I just had one last night.  It was weird and unsatisfying and thus I must share.  I dreamt I was an undergrad (thank you, Cheese in the Trap) and a Candy (so, so far from the truth, but so is being an undergrad at this point) and that TOP was my Oppa.

Mind Blown!

TOP was working as a delivery Candy Boy, but was secretly a rich Heir: 
TOP wasn't in Heirs, so Kim WooBin is filling in.

and he was that nice Oppa that I relied on for an occasional "Fighting!"

Like in IRIS.

And I was the only one who knew he was a rich Heir in disguise,

Kim Woobin again.

and not a delivery boy.  


Min Hyorin was there too.  
I didn't recognize her in Persevere, Gu HaeRa.

looking like she did in that Song Jieun video where she sets BAP's Himchan

Again, self-explanatory.

on fire,

Yep, she burned that face alive.

and she was the Unni I trusted and who I needed eventually to  help me with some college work because of some weird illness that started with a nosebleed.

Nosebleeds are gross, so here's TOP again.
In the dream, I had a dongsaeng I talked to on the phone, but never saw, so I'll just assume she looks like this:
Mysterious MeiMei.
What the heck!  Anyway, the dream ended with TOP and Min Hyorin being the worst, most unreliable Oppa and Unni ever, leaving me to die of fever while walking down a spiral staircase
This is what it looked like in the dream, actually.
because Min Hyorin wouldn't help with my homework and TOP was busy delivering things.
If only I'd been with him on the motorbike instead.

The End.

Visiting Dr. Johnson's House

This is the view going into the square where Dr. Johnson's House lives.

This is the house.

Here's a plaque letting you know Dr. Johnson lived here.

In case you missed the plaque, here's another sign.

And in case you really are clueless, here's a handwritten sign.

Someone lives across the way. 

The entryway is appropriately populated by books.

First, a sitting room of sorts.

Here's the view from the staircase between ground and floor 1.

Here is Floor 1, which is very pretty all in green and white.

Look, a dining table!

Pretty fireplace. I always wanted a fireplace, how about you?

I don't think the radiator is orginal, though.

A view from the window.  

This didn't look original either, but writers are notorious for massive egos, so who knows.

Mrs. Johnson, as was,

Pretty, isn't she?

Here's another sitting room with a dining table. I liked this room.  Do you like this room?

One of Dr. Johnson's Bluestocking friends. Eventually, they stopped speaking to each other as people with clashing strong opinions tend to do.

Another family friend who made her home at Dr. Johnson's house as a permanent guest. He and Mrs. Johnson paid for her cataract surgery, but it didn't work, and she was cranky the rest of the life. 

A bookcase, in case you didn't notice.

Same cataract lady.

Supposedly a pice of the Great Wall.  However, Dr. Johnson never went further than France.

Here's Dr. Johnson telling Mr. Pepys he couldn't possibly have helped himself writing about Dr. Johnson (note to self, read that Diary one day).

Some information on that wall piece.

A room on Floor 2.

Some period costumes to try on on Floor 2. (I didn't try because I'm scared of 18th century afflictions like lice.)

Cricket, another staircase! Dr. Johnson's House is a workout, I tell you, a veritable workout!

An attic. 
Mostly there were chairs and paintings.

A display, but I was busy catching my breath. 😥

A picture of a reading at Dr. Johnson's House.  They didn't have iPads in those days, you see. So, they had to socialize and use their voices and so on.

I'll let you magnify and read this yourself.

Information about Dr. Johnson's publications.

With Mrs. Siddons, the actress. 

And finally, a portrait of the great writer himself.

Did you enjoy your tour?
