In my dream: I tried to distract a female person from some possible nefariousness by standing right up close to her and projecting into her mind that she was standing in a field with a lovely rose hued sky. This did not work, but she did say “Mmmm, psychic,” as if impressed by my minor effort. She was one of those beautiful villain motifs, I guess.
Woke up feeling great though, in lust with life.
Dreamed I was directed through a wrong door looking for the teachers’ lounge. Found myself in a surreal space of orgies. Two security people came up to me and demanded “Are you supposed to be here?”. I replied calmly, “I have two answers for that. One, Yes. Two, No, I went through the wrong door.”
They led me out, and an asian man who was some sort of leader of these people (much like the guy in season 7 of Lost) tried to give me some red jelly to eat, which I knew was a psycedellic that would confuse my memory of the event and thus help ensure that I would not be credible, and they would not be exposed. I declined it, spilled it on my sleeve and brushed it off.
I then made a defense of my ability to accept different people, saying I’d been with (met) different people and was better for it. He seemed to accept the possibility that I was perhaps wise enough to be trusted with what little information I’d learned about what lies beyond the teachers’ lounge. Apparently they were at risk of being attacked. Not clear on their situation.
I also dreamed I met myself, from 15 minutes earlier, a la Austin Powers, and the other me said I looked smaller in person.
Had no choice. Was paring back from being completely out of hard drive space for so long now. 2 TBs on the way! Irony is that will be the backup drive. My own drive will be my former backup drive – 750 GB. It will get me through a few more months. Problem is I’m starting to like lossless music. And it requires 2x to 3x as much room. Since I have about 300 GB of lossy music, that would be about 1 TB of lossless. So already, 750 GB is not enough. I’ll just have to start with only my favorite – and most sonically masterful – albums. And go very slowly, so I won’t run out of space until I can afford another 2 GB drive to be my main drive.
I got to buy a computer monitor on Craigslist for work today. Always fun to spend someone else’s money on something fun. It was just a cheap Sceptre monitor, an old one at that. But fun to buy.
Weird thing was, it had built in speakers. But there was no way to connect any audio to the monitor, so what were the speakers for? Who knows.
