Fragment of a horrible dream

by on Jan.31, 2010, under Uncategorized

Recently I’ve been playing Echo Bazaar. It’s a neat web-based game with a very evocative setting; in summary, Victorian London is dragged to Hell. (It also uses Twitter OAuth authentication, so you need a Twitter account to play…I think.)

Anyway, last night I had a dream where I was reading this text (as well as exploring the area mentioned). It was surprising how complete the text was in my dream (not FULLY complete, but the important parts were there). I feel like I was reading this from some alternate version of Echo Bazaar…some version featuring, not London, but a certain city with an island nearby.

One might wonder how several thousand people on an island with so few routes on or off. Food is provided by Hunger’s blessing, in a swarm of black bees that bring forth an endless supply of honey. Chefs of the island, such as they are, most famously use black pepper to break up the monotony. There are rumors that the honey has subtle side effects on the mind and soul; the terms “sweet tooth” and “heavy eater” have a particular meaning on the Island.

So, my girlfriend midomi had her gallbladder removed recently. For the past week or so I’ve been hanging out at the hospital with her. But Thursday she came back home to recover! Everything’s going exactly how the doctors expected, so that’s good. Also, we suspect that the pains she was having every now and then before were due to her gallbladder, so she probably won’t be having any of those again!

I’ve been too freaked out to work on any projects or anything, but I should probably get myself to start up with those again…
