don’t mess with my machine!

Dream last night: I had a bug I needed to fix by the end of the week, and I was having trouble figuring out what was going on. So I took a break to get up and send an email to some friends still in high school – the winners of the Fields Medal had been announced, and I knew 2 of the 21 winners (a fact that I was oddly proud of). So I sent a congratulatory email and went back to my computer…

…only to find that some coworkers had been messing with it! They knew I was having trouble with this bug and running out of time and so they upgraded my machine for me. Except it wasn’t even on, they hadn’t finished connecting all the parts. I couldn’t believe they would be so dumb – I was just in the middle of debugging the problem and now I’d have to fix up this computer and get it back in that state and waste a bunch of time. I think I yelled a lot.

I woke up from this dream very very angry…it took me a few minutes to calm down. So I guess the lesson is: don’t do that!

  1. Poor, well-intentioned coworkers who’d never be so dumb in real life…I bet you were mad at them all day πŸ˜‰ I dreamed last night that I avoided four large-scale wrecks (flipping semis, wrong-way cars, etc.) in action while driving somewhere. Then I had to abandon my car and find a gas station from which to call Jonathan since I left my phone in my car. Then I forgot where I left my car. Then I was glad I’d left my phone in my car so I could call it, but I realized I probably wouldn’t be able to hear it ring. Which was true.


  2. On the note of bad dreams. I had a really bad dream last night where I was taking this foreign language test (I was in the class and did know the material decently), but so was Andrew and Greg. They were however taking turns distracting me so that I couldn’t finish my test (that wasn’t their intention, they were just being rude) in the time alloted. It was really frustrating.
