...I have XKCD dreams.

I dreamt last night that Randall Munroe published a collection of XKCD comics. They were printed on special electronic paper, and each page was filled with Easter eggs and secret little animations that would come to life, if you just knew where to touch.

Reed College ordered a thousand copies of the book. Of COURSE they did. And on the day they arrived, [livejournal.com profile] katealaurel and I joined the swarming mob to check out a copy.

I woke up deeply disappointed that it was just a dream. But hey, it's better than the spate of horrible nightmares I've been having about ghosts, or the end of the world, or Ben being swallowed alive by a Hypno-Toad the size of an elephant.

[livejournal.com profile] quietselkie woke up with the five phases of mitosis running through her brain. I...I dreamt of (drumroll) post-modern beer commercials taking over television. The last image before I woke up was a freeze-frame of a photo of giant bottle of beer, the amber bottle beaded with condensation, floating against a super-saturated blue background. And the announcer said "Post-modern beer. Enjoy this deliberately manipulated representation of a representation of a consciousness-altering beverage. Your experience of reality as you perceive it cannot possibly compare."

What. The. Fuck.

Also, how post-modern is a dream about self-consciously post-modern beer commercials featuring photos of the product? This, my friends, is the seven-layer nacho of post-modern experience.

That dream was almost as nerdy as the one I had a couple weeks ago in which I got into an argument with a chemist about reduction, especially as it related to iron(II) vs. iron(III) ions.

In other, more important but less surreal news, I found out last night that Lewis and Clark Law School has seen fit to bestow me with a partial scholarship. WOO!
