Gah!

I went to sleep at  2:30 last night, obsessing over chapter 11.  Amber, my 15 year old Golden Retriever decides at 4:30 she HAS to go out.  She yelp/barks when she wants to do this, and she's very persistant.  I fussed at hubby and he finally got out of bed, but he couldn't get her to come in.  Evenutally, I had to get up anyway, and get her in, and by that time, I was wide awake.

Probably a good thing, though.  I was having the weirdest dream about InuYasha, Sesshoumaru and a Kagome who had been enchanted into a large dog. 

Then, about 6:30 I finally go back to bed.  Hubby, of course, was sleeping smack in the middle of the bed (no doubt in revenge for my kicking him out for the dog), but I finally get him to make room and passed out.  At 10:30, I heard him talking about his cpap machine not working.  I got out of bed, walked into the computer room, and found out we had no electricity. 

It came back on after 11.  Fine.  I get ready to start answering my mails, when the power blinks back out.

Meanwhile, hubby has upgraded his firewall software.

When the power gets back up, the software isn't working right.

In between several power blinks, I manage to scan his hd, defrag his hard drive, and eventually just reinstalled his firewall.

I still haven't gotten back to ATE.  But I did get to read a bit in my book on Jack the Ripper, and that was nice.

Gah!

Jack the Ripper, and that was nice

Do you have any idea how odd that sounds? :)

Hope you don't have any more power outages. And that was a weird dream - the opposite of some fanfic I read somewhere where 1) InuYasha was enchanted into a dog or 2)InuYasha and Sesshomaru both enchanted into dogs. Of course it seems like both required for Kagome to have sex with them in order to revert to their regular forms...

Stay out of my dreams, woman! LOL.

The barking of Amber may have had something to do with the doggie aspect of the dream, though.

Power's been steady for hours, so I am back at the writing. Slowly, but surely. Fabio is being a harsh taskmaster...

My computer was on...must have crashed closed 5 times before the power got steady...but since the power surge wasn't near here, evidently, no real problem.

I'm pretty good at the care and feeding of computers...

Alas, don't remember the dream well enough to turn it into a tale...

your dream stopped on my page right with inuyasha, sesshomaru, and... i'm still there filling in the blanks while waiting for the computer to catch up. kagome as a dog was the milder of my options.

i had a weird dream about a kid that was writing a song to his grandfather, who was a catholic priest (i know, i wasn't pondering that little celibacy thing while i was dreaming. didn't think much about it till later when i tried to recall it) asking why god would abandon him for being gay when he didn't do anything wrong. the weird part? in my dream, i knew i was dreaming and i tried to write down all the lyrics so i wouldn't forget them.

needless to say, i woke up and forgot.

Dreams are such a trip. I used to play with Jungian analysis of them, but nowadays, I just wake up and let the fragments sail away. But I know I'm obsessing a lot about things I'm writing when the story sneaks into my dreams. I'm mostly through with Chapter 11, not quite...so maybe my mind will take a break when it's done...

I wish I had dreams about the Inuyasha characters - that'd be neat!

I just had my regular old dreams about being at my parents house and it was haunted. I need a dream therapist or something. What's the deal with those?

When I first got into InuYasha, I was watching it, catching up with the manga, and reading fanfiction like there was no tomorrow...hubby was out of town at last summer's wildfires for weeks at a time, and I had nothing to keep me from really going crazy like that..and I dreamed of the characters all the time...Now it only usually happens when I am struggling with one of my stories.

It's just a case of the old programmer's maxim. GIGO - garbage in, garbage out. Or in this case, it's IIIO...InuYasha in, InuYasha out...LOL...that sounds sort of wicked....

    You might try Nobunaga Concerto where a modern time traveler exchanges places with Nobunaga. Follows Nobuanaga historically
