All I can remember of my dream this morning is sun-washed sheets billowing in the wind on a clothesline; a very sheer, gathered square was also drying on the line. A voice said "sheets washed again and again until the sun bleached them snowy white" and "gossamer so fine the spiders are envious."

That's better than yesterday's, where I was negotiating some sort of trade agreement with a tribe somewhere remote on behalf of my grandmother. She flew out to close the deal, and I was supposed to go back with her but had to wait for the next airplane. While I was waiting, the local bigwig in charge of the airport chased me through the crumbling ruins. I ran through courtyards and rooms of brown stone.

Last night I had the strangest dream. I sailed away to China, in a little rowboat to find ya, And you said you had to get your laundry clean...

One more day...

One more day of class, and my weekends are mine again...until I take that Biology class with City, but that's different. Tomorrow is the end of a year of half of my weekends sacrificed for my education. Whee! After tomorrow, only 12 credit hours remaining: one course in interdisciplinary studies, one course in life science with a lab (The reason I have none is because I'm interested in two aspects of biology: the food chain and reproduction activities among humans.), and two semesters of Internship. Bless her, the lady at SIU was willing to sign me up for both at once, but I think I'll need more time. If I finish before December, so what. It'll be less stressful, and I don't think I want to keep the heartburn I've been having off and on for the past month.

The presentation went well. H & V did a decent job with the powerpoint last night after I left. Arrogance makes me think that I could have done it better, but in truth, I simply would have done it differently. The paper, though...that was where my editing skills were valuable. Oh, and the fact that I can type faster than five letters a minute.

Internship...must remember to burn myself a disk for the internship stuff for next week while I'm underway.

I thought about ordering a class ring. I don't know if I still can, since the campus orders were supposed to be in in February. I guess I could call the company, but I'm not sure if I want one.

If I had one, though, it would be one of the white gold signets without the antiquing. Nice and understated.
