Stupid REM Sleep [Jan. 8th, 2012|09:37 am]
Dear Brain,

Okay, first, that wasn't either of the DC airports you were thinking of, it was Logan International. Second, Air France flies out of terminal E in Boston, so if we need to find their checkin, we don't run frantically down one labyrinthine hall after another, we go outside and catch the little shuttle bus that goes between terminals. And third, Air France doesn't even fly to Denver, much less domestically in the U.S., so that would not be how we'd fly from D.C. to Boston and then back to D.C. and then home, which is a stupid flight plan even with a two hour stopover in Boston because it would be orders of magnitude cheaper and easier to just call a friend and ask them to box up the milk-crate full of books and mail them to us.

In the future, could we please not have 45 minutes of that same dream over and over? Because it was really annoying. Also, if you could remember that cell phones exist, even when I'm sleeping, it would resolve a great many "dilemmas".

No love,

You didn't have a dream, you had a Seinfeld episode.

As recently going around the web, Seinfeld doesn't work with [smart phones]. You just need to go back in time, become a writer on Seinfeld and become rich. Then come back to now.

Or not, because if you could go back in time, there are better ways to get rich. The other scheme sounds like a Seinfeld episode. ;-)

I think this is why it took forever to give the cast of Buffy cell phones. "Why can't she just phone Buffy for help?" "Because we need a scary back alley chase SHUT UP."

This is a terrible, pedestrian, nightmare. I already feel like I've spent too much of my waking life in airports. Spending time there while sleeping does not improve things.

America West once tried to convince me that DCA to LAS via LAX would be a shorter flight than DCA to LAS. I laughed at them, and told them i'd much rather the direct flight.

I had a similar conversation with my dream-self in which I told myself that I cannot resolve the past and its broken relationships. I remind dream-self that I have no hidden feelings or issues with my ex, so dream-self should please be kind enough to release me from having recurring dreams during which I am moving to a new house with said ex, that would be rad.

You're describing every flight I ever had before cell phones.
