Deja vu

Last night's dreams caught up with me while I was working quietly at my desk this morning. All of a sudden I wasn't seeing the file on my screen, but instead a sunny room. I had a feeling of deja vu--it was a familiar vision that I couldn't quite place until my forgotten dream began to trickle back to me. The funniest thing about this dream was how my subconcious managed to recall pieces of information, like the names of my college eateries, that I hadn't even thought of in ages.

Amazing what's stored in deep core, down where the addresses all start with multiple zeroes...

It is amazing the trivia that we can't forget.

I'm also reminded of that joke. There are 10 types of people: those that understand binary and those that don't. :)

Very "Waking Life" moment there...I'll explain. There's a moment in the movie where a girl the main character meets begins explaining her idea for this off-the-wall sitcom. He says "Sure" but then he asks a really incisive question, "What does it feel like to be a character in someone else's dream?" Because that's who the girl is, the main character is having a very imaginative dream and this woman is nothing more than a construction of his own psyche, but the paradox is that she is able to generate ideas and have thoughts that the main character himself could never create. The main character said something about the sitcom like 'that it was an idea I would have never thought of....' or somesuch thing, but since this is, afterall, his dream, he must have created it. And this begs the question then, "How do we know what we know?" It's a very interesting question on several levels.

That joke? I had it as an email tag line for a while. Everyone I showed it to, got it....but none of them thought it was funny. I did, but no one else. Rats.

The guy who first told me that joke was actually the guy who waters our plants in my office. Weird.
