weird dreams, life on google

I had bad dreams last night. First, I dreamed that I was trying to help people save beached whales, and some of them were afraid of being eaten by the whales so I told them not to worry, whales don't eat people, they have no teeth. Then the whales started eating people. They'd just sort of gum us to death. Sounds funny now, but when I woke up from it I was scared to death.

Then I dreamed I got a second interview for technical writing at that company, and I brought in a user manual I'd done, and the guy just found tons of grammar errors in it and stuff. It was terrible. And true, because there are mistakes in everything I've done. I'm just not as detail-oriented as I say I am, it's a weakness I've always had, always tried to improve, always failed at. UHG!

So to cheer myself up this morning, I'm having pizza for breakfast :) And I took a long hard look at my website statistics. Guess what? When you run a google search for xmms skins, I'm right up there under xmms.org! Crazy, huh? And I'm not doing too bad on "desktop backgrounds" either... I'm on page two for those, but I still get lots of hits from it (more than I get from xmms skins, oddly enough).

I'm going home today. Sigh. Gave David a big hug and told him to come down next weekend, he might.

The whales are OK
Did your whale dream have anything to do with the 55 marooned pilot whales stranded on Chapin Beach, Mass? 46 of those whales survived and are back in the ocean now. They have been tagged so that can be watched and hopefully be taught not to beach themselves again.

Hope you sleep easier tonight :)

Re: The whales are OK
Funny you mentioned it, I just heard that story this afternoon and didn't remember hearing about it yesterday or anything, I don't pay much attention to news. But maybe I just forgot, it wiggled into my subconscious and gave me the dream? Brains are so weird.

gummed to death huh? Sounds like a nightmare I got when I was working in a retirement home a few years back...

(You probably know this already, but ...)

Killer Whales have teeth. Nice big ones that they use to rend the flesh of seals and stuff.

Lots of other whales just have that wimpy baleen stuff that they use to filter in plankton and crap. Pathetic excuses for whales ... ;-)

Shamoo!

The whales in my dreams were... huge. Humpbacks maybe? Like the one in Cast Away when Tom Hanks is drifting in the ocean and he wakes up in the middle of the night to see this gigantic eyeball staring him down. That scene freaked me out. I've never seen a whale, but I can't imagine liking it. Anyway, the ones in my dream were definately baleen types, which is why it was so surprising that they ate humans.

Heh, yeah. Are you sure the humans weren't just being crushed by their jaws? Or were they actually being swallowed?

I had a ton of weird dreams last night, too, but I've forgotten most of them.
