Woke from dream in which a forceful and humorless blonde woman was testing something about my brain at a high school. A series of questions followed by forcing me to hook up and then play a video game. The game involved shooting large futuristic tanks. Then a day later the woman came back and made me do it all again. (Two of the questions were 1. what is the name for a group of cougars? 2. what is the name for a group of koi. I now need to look and see if those animals even have group names). Finally, during 2nd test, I snapped. It was when she asked me to hook up the game console again. There were dozens of grey wires and I was wearing some kind of goggles over my glasses that kept causing them to dig into my brow. I told her I wouldn't take the test, I wanted to know where she was from, and why I hadn't I gotten the results from my first test. Then I told her I was smarter than she was. Then I asked to see her naked.
Then I woke up. Conrad says there is nothing less interesting than hearing other people's dreams. Well, everyone says that. But they sort of infect your day, and since I just woke up that's what's in my head.
It's like smoke from some building that you stayed in at night; the rest of the day that smoke smell is in your hair and shirt and clothes.
She also defined a 'koi' for me when she asked me the koi question. That made me very angry. I told her that I wasn't a moron; I knew what a koi was. Although in high school I wonder if I did.
I wonder if this relates to the large amount of spicy salsa I ate last night?

A new show on a new channel (Current is the channel): Hooked on Danger. It's about tuna fisherman in Australia and is actually pretty entertaining. My lecture series on the canon is making me increasingly grouchy. But I did make a dentist appointment, despite my intense desire not to. The poison spore and all that. Going out to dinner tonight with wife. We probably both need some time to decompress.
