Perchance to dream
Last night I had very odd dreams in which I was carrying my pillow around with me through the most incongruous situations. I always sleep with my arms wrapped around one of my pillows -- have done ever since I was a child -- but I think this is the first time I've carried the damn thing into a dream with me. The only bit I can remember of the dream now is that I was having some kind of argument with beingjdc, who said it was my fault that he had split up with ceb and she had gone out with Ian instead, because I had got off with beingjdc and ceb had stopped fancying him as a result. Or something like that. I put the pillow down while having this argument, but I remember picking it up before leaving his house, and walking back home in my bare feet, still carrying my pillow.

All of which, of course, is mere procrastinatory rambling; I really should go to bed, but I don't really feel tired -- I've had too much coffee for that. Also, I feel unsettled, and too much stuff is wandering around in my mind for me to want to go and be alone with it, without distractions. If I could choose what to dream about I might be more inclined to head in the direction of sleep; but as it is I know my dreams will probably just be more nonsense, with a grumbling subtext of anxiety and guilt.

Oh well. Can't put it off for ever, I suppose. <weary sigh> Goodnight all.

...do I need to meet this person now? ;-)

You might have already met him at party-type-things -- tall, louche-looking gentleman with very dark hair; would probably have been wearing a maroon pinstriped velvet suit. He's very nice really, despite the things he says about my mother. <grins at jdc>

Everyone needs to meet me, or their lives are incomplete. I agree it's likely that you already have and just didn't know it at the time, mind you.

*big hugs* Hope you slept a bit better.

*hugs* Thanks. Didn't get to sleep until after 2am, but at least I actually slept through the night. More weird dreams but I can't remember them any more...

I was having really weird dreams last night too, well more this morning really. Can't remember the least thing about them, other than that at some point I remember thinking the details were out of place for the setting, too SFish or something.

No you weren't.

Speaking of error messages, I tried to get Marna's mp3 server to play Steeleye Span, and then I broke the speakers, and when uon was fixing it, he discovered that the message was 'argument list too long'.

I've had dreams in which sundry cuddly toys have appeared. Once I had a dream in which I was apparently cuddling a metallic version of myself, which turned out to be at least partly inspired by the cuddly panda toy I was still cuddling when I woke up.

Freud would have a field week.
