Wet Dream

Last night I had a very strange dream. All I remember from it is seeing that a large pool of water had formed in my back yard. The water was clear and rippling and under it I could see the silvery metallic forms of some large pipes and other gear. In my dream brain I suddenly realized that the leach lines of my septic system had collapsed and this pool was the result. This is absurd, of course, as there are no pipes or machinery in leach lines, and the pool wasn't even in the same spot as the leach field, which would never collapse three or four feet deep anyway, and the last thing that would appear in such a hole if it did develop would be perfectly clear water. It was the strangest dream image I've had in ages. I have no idea where it came from.

My waking day was nowhere near as interesting. I fed cats, surfed Internets, ate a donut and some peanuts and drank some orange juice and some coffee and ate nothing resembling a lunch. I tidied some stuff up, too, but can't remember what. All I know is that I tidied. It will come back to me later, I suppose. Reality has less and less of a purchase on my mind (or vice versa, I suppose) as time goes on.

Now I have to heat up a can of soup that I decided would be dinner, since I don't feel like cooking anything again. It is supposed to be a bit warmer tomorrow, so maybe I can open the windows again, but if not then I can definitely do so on Saturday,which will be quite toasty. No more rain is predicted until a week from tomorrow. That might change, of course, but if it doesn't then I'll be forced to do some irrigation along about Monday. If that dream pool would really form I could quit worrying about the cost of water and just freely irrigate the whole yard from it.

Since switching to the new computer and an updated, Chrome-based version of Opera I've been getting a lot of "Out of memory" notices from Opera. I reset something, but it still happens. This computer actually has several times as much memory as the old one, on which I never got that notice. I suspect a quirk of Windows 7 or of Chrome-based Opera. Whatever is causing it it's very annoying, and I wish it would stop.
