Recent Dreams

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Odd dreams I've had somewhat recently, that I feel I should record somehow.

  • Around half a year ago, I had a dream that my mind was somehow, Timequake-style perhaps, transferred to the body of some kid entering first grade. I remember some sort of altercation with the Adults regarding using GNU/Linux on the computers in the school laboratory.
  • Perhaps a week ago, I had a weird dream involving spelunking with my friend Angel and discovering -- I kid you not -- a pyramid formed by petrified dead evil leprechauns. I pushed it a tiny bit and it fell into the abyss.

    Also a very odd portion: I was inside a doctor's office and saw weird genitalia that subverted human anatomical norms.
  • Less than a week ago -- something involving the guy who played Larry Applegate on "Perfect Strangers," and also involving seeing again one of my elementary school teachers, who in reality encouraged me and gave me a computer game that edutained mathwise. In the dream, there was some necessity that I should take my "O-levels," even though I'm not in England.
