I don't normally blog dreams but this one was very vivid, and I want a record of it for my own sake. Feel free to skip if you hate reading other people's dreams.

Ugh. I don't even believe in that mythos anyway.

I don't think I fully realized until last night how incredibly happy I am. I got everything finally sorted for my trip to America, which means I get to see lots of lovely people who live far away from me (and meet some new people, hopefully). And dealing with the travelling was a minor background stress which isn't there any more. I realize that I thanked [livejournal.com profile] pezstar in a locked post which she can't see, so I'm thanking her again publicly here.

Then I wrote a group email to all my friends who don't read LJ, including some whom I haven't been properly in touch with recently, telling them I'd got my PhD. So now all the important people know, it feels real. And more excitingly than that, I got lots of nice emails back and I'm now in touch with people I was not exactly in touch with. PM wrote to me, and not with vague expressions of goodwill, but with concrete plans to meet up next month. So I really really need to get my act together and get myself back to Cambridge within the next few weeks. But wow, it will be so, so lovely to see PM again.

On top of this, I recently got a card from a penfriend from my childhood who has managed to track me down after I don't know how many years. So my life is even fuller of wonderful people than I thought it was, yay internet.

As a sign of just how happy I am, when I got to sleep I had the most politically optimistic dream ever )

OK, reality is not quite that wonderful on waking up. But my own life right now is really very wonderful indeed!

Today is the 19th day, making two complete weeks and five days of the Omer

The other night I had rather a sweet dream about [livejournal.com profile] misia. We were sitting side by side at two computers, both happily writing away at our separate projects, occasionally breaking off to give eachother an encouraging word or smile. It was the kind of hot, slightly muggy weather that makes clothes feel like a deeply unfair imposition, so we weren't wearing many. After a while, the encouraging words were turning into affectionate touching, such that by the time we'd both finished what we wanted to do, we were being quite cuddly. It wasn't particularly erotic, just comfortable and friendly mostly. Though it is the case, and I was aware of it in the dream, that [livejournal.com profile] misia is unreasonably gorgeous and half of LJ crushes on her.

Much as I appreciate having a dream about my thesis that does not involve stress or angst, I think this one would probably be more apt for someone like [livejournal.com profile] rysmiel. Or maybe [livejournal.com profile] pthalogreen. So in the interests of returning lost property, I'm putting it here.

I am so very glad to have my journal and friends list back! It's quite scary just how hard I found it to get through a weekend without access. (I've also lost the comments I made last night to my previous post. There was nothing of critical importance, just generally thanking people for their comments. I have no idea whether you'll have received notifications about the missing comments, but as a general summary: lovely people, feel appreciated.)

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
