MagicRealismBot By touching a particular anus located in Marrakech, you can reach another world. It is made of clichés.

I’m going to stop thinking about your dreams and your dream comments now. twitter.com/nkav/status/85…

Nope. Oddly enough, when I did have absinthe last week, I had the soundest night’s sleep in ages. Go figure. twitter.com/MargotSaville/…

I’m sure that’s the plot of quite a few fantasy stories.

Before waking up yesterday, my dream was so lucid I remember thinking “It’s too cold to wake up yet, I’ll stay in this interesting dream.”

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Background: One of the Annoying Side Effects is that I have particularly vivid, often lucid, dreams which I can fail to forget. It’s noice.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Anyway, there was a bunch of much more interesting stuff earlier in my dreams, but for once I don’t remember it. I wish I knew why.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

It wasn’t a particularly interesting dog though.

I can remember the passcode I put on the phone, as well as my reasons for choosing it. This was a really shitty dream.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

For some reason I was resetting this phone while sitting under a tree on the footpath.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Last night I dreamt thru resetting an Android phone. Like, I dreamt the entire sequence of reinstalling the software in excruciating detail.

@ResignInShame It is. I think I might have to head to K-town just to get my blood flowing, otherwise I won’t get any work done today either.

I can hear a bunch of yellow-tailed black cockatoos out there this morning. I’d go and watch them if it were a bit warmer than 3C right now.

Thursday. There are three circles, and they intersect. One is thicker than the other two, but it is richer. Thursday.
