Day: September 21, 2006

Nap and Dream

I came home tonight, spent some time with “TheSpawn” and tried to share one of the great thrills of my childhood “Return of the Jedi” but she was only really interested in “Empire”

No Joke.  She said that she’d rather watch Empire (It’s a down ending, and that’s what life is daddy.  A series of Down Endings)

okay, she didn’t say the last part, she just can’t wait to see the big “Reveal Scene” in Empire.

I had been waiting to see this version of Jedi again for ages (I bought the DVD collection last year and was crestfallen about the changes to things I remembered so well.  Being able to watch the “crappy original” was manna to me)
After she went to bed (she watched the climax and ending of Jedi, but wasn’t really into it; I had a nap.

It was a 2 and a half hour nap, filled with the kind of vivid dreams one only gets when one is not in a deep enough sleep to get total rest, but a deep enough one for REM sleep to come on.  Some highlights:

1)  Driving a very tall mobile platform through a swamp.
2)  Sneaking into some building and operating a pirate radio station, then trying to hide from the owners.
3)  Picking up friends to go out to some social event.
4)  A long form riff on the behavior of wealthy kids.
5)  Some sort of post-war malaise.

I think that the TV (on in the room) was affecting what I dreamed about.

It was a good nap, but I’m still tired and I’ll be back in bed soon.

Late nights at the Office

I work on the West Coast, so this is a relative term.   May day starts at 5-6 am at work so when I talk about late evenings I’m usually saying 4-6 PM.

Last night I was in the office from 6AM until 11PM.

It was a helaciously long day and I still made it in to the office before 9AM, so I have that to be proud of.
