Notes from a Monday morning [Jan. 16th, 2006|11:20 am]

So, today's my first day of primary on-call for my team at work. Meaning I get to drop everything and handle the team's incoming operational issues for a couple weeks. This should be interesting.

I had a dream last night, vivid enough that I woke up disoriented and have felt a little bit odd all day. It started with a party at a house somewhere, watching fireworks. Only the fireworks were nuclear, and being shot out of a catapult. Something went wrong, and a mushroom cloud bloomed above the buildings in the distance, and I decided that going into the basement was a good idea. And then I somehow ended up in a forest, or possibly overgrown ruins, running around someone who my brain identified as Ed from Cowboy Bebop, despite the fact that she seemed to be at least a teenager, and capable of conversing somewhat normally. I don't know where the hell that came from, but I've felt odd all morning.

Incidentally, a brief part of the dream - something about a mailing address - has left me with the seed of an idea for a short story. I'll have to think about this one for a bit.

Finally, a link for all you HP fanboys/fangirls, from filkertom. caladan_dd is the most impressive HP fanartist I've ever seen, with a fresh take on the characters very often deviating from the movie versions entirely. As an example, here's a page full of character sketches. The little nicknames scrawled next to each one amused the hell out of me.

Dreams are some crazy, crazy stuff. I had odd dreams last night that left me feeling like writing this morning, too.

Yeah, I saw your post after I put mine up. Must have been something in the air last night?

I've always been kinda miffed by various movie portrayals of HP characters... especially Lupin. HE'S NOT FRENCH, DAMMIT. GRAR. I might need to draw some more HP art in the near future... since I can do a bit better than that Hermione drawing now...
