Reading summaries of the last Wheel of Time book before bed results in dreams consisting of long lists of difficult names and an omnipresent fear of betrayals.

(ETA: In other news, it was very very difficult to click "next" past [ profile] leighdb's spoilerific post just now. Oh, the desire to find out What Happens Next, it is strong!)

This morning, I couldn't connect to our wireless network. Troubleshooting this evening turned up the problem: sometime overnight, my computer decided the wireless network had a different name, one that dropped a character from the middle of the actual name.

That's the kind of inexplicable error that makes me very nervous; running chkntfs on reboot fixed one cross-linked file and that's it (unless changing the volume bitmap is something additional). Of course, then I couldn't exit checkdisk without powering off and eventually resorting to "last known good configuration," which makes me mildly nervous, but what are you going to do.

On a lighter note, we have some weird late-night conversations here at Chateau Steelypips.

Last week, Chad assures me that we had the following conversation at 3:00 in the morning, after he got up briefly and then came back to bed:

KATE: That was fast.

CHAD: What?

KATE: You just said that it would be three months before a robotic dinosaur prototype was ready.

CHAD: What?

KATE:  . . . or maybe I was dreaming.

I don't remember this as all, but I believe it.

Last night, Chad stayed up late to watch the Manning Bowl (Giants-Colts). He tells me this is what we said when he came to bed:

KATE: Did they win?

CHAD: No. I'm sorry you're awake.

KATE: I'm not awake.

CHAD:  . . . and the dinosaur prototypes will be ready in three months.

I vaguely remember knowing that the Giants lost, but that's all.

What I want to know is, why don't I remember cool dreams involving dinosaur prototypes, instead of nasty ones about, for instance, learning that my dream-self's entire family had some horrible genetic disease?

I dreamt last night that weird details )

In happier news, I've updated the booklog with comments on Kate Ross's novels, thanks to [ profile] athenais's query. Anyone else want to remark on books in the queue (further up that post), maybe jumpstart the juices?
