catching up

Today has been a day of sleeping. Travel always makes me exhausted, I don't know why. My bedroom continues to be colder than the rest of the house (though it is warmer than it was when I first moved in since the furnace people came and did their thing). So I wake up because I'm cold and move out onto the couch pretty regularly. Something about sleeping on the couch, though, seems to result in strange dreams. This morning's was a long and involved set concerning some kind of escape/rescue from a museum that turned into an amphitheater and eventually turned out to be some kind of alien artifact that was really up on the summit of this mountain riddled with bobsled tunnels. One of those dreams that doesn't make a lot of sense, but has a lot of familiar symbolism (familiar in terms of personal dream-iconography, at least). I often dream about sliding places or sledding, for example, though I haven't yet identified exactly what that symbolizes for me. Fear combined with longing may be somewhat close, but it isn't quite right either.

I don't have a lot to say about Dallas. I was pretty groggy the whole time I was there, only had energy to go to class and sleep, essentially. The product the pilot course was on is pretty cool, but the course itself needs a good deal of work. There was a killer cold snap on as well, which also contributed to my one-dimensionality. The first morning things were about 11 degrees Fahrenheit outside with the wind chill. I was wearing two t-shirts and was still freezing, so I bought a sweat-shirt from the hotel gift shop when it opened. It wasn't until I got home that I realized it was pink. Sigh. Ok, dusty rose, but still, like my sweater, sort of stealth pink. Hello, what the hell is my subconscious trying to tell me here? Bah.

Went to coffee with Ben last night, spent most of the time talking about Relationships. By the time we left I was furious - amazingly, thoroughly angry. At myself, I realized by the time I got home: scratch a cynic and find a frustrated romantic. I've said before that I don't suffer fools gladly, and you can treble that for foolish behavior on my own part. Ben commented that the issue seemed complex in my case. A perspicacious case of understatement, that; makes the gordian knot look like a bow knot, really.

Tired Joy. Oh listen, there's some sort of alarm going off. Hurrah.
