So. Last night I had a horrible dream. I dreamt that I thought it was a good idea to add sugar to my 5 gallons of cyser currently clearing. The sugar, obviously, started the cyser degassing. Not only did the cyser degas a great amount, but the sugar (in a dream-like fashion) immediately fermented to a layer of pure ethanol. All in all, I dreamt that I lost about 3 gallons of my precious mead, and that I had about half a gallon of completely undrinkable rocket fuel separating me from what remained. :(

You're not alone. I also have nightmares about my meads. Maybe I need a therapist. ;)

They say you dream about what you're thinking about, so I guess I'm not surprised. :)

At least your thinking about your mead/cyser, at least enough for you dreams to dredge it up anyhow ... ;-)

My dreams all revolve around work these days. Last night I was bowling with the head of marketing. The night before I was working out the details of our finicky test method validation. I think bowling was the better option, let's hope for something fun again tonight, only not with marketing. Maybe laser? I've been dragged through laser too much lately...

I don't remember the last time I could remember a dream by the time morning came about. I envy you all that.

Oh, that's nothing. I used to have lucid dreams all the time back in college. Other than one last month, I haven't had any in ages, though.

Another dream oddity: one of my best friends can't dream in color. She always dreams in black & white, and though she's not colorblind, she thought that was normal. She was shocked when we told her that everyone we all knew dreamt in color.

Yeah, usually it's nightmares of my advisor hunting me down for one paper or another. ;-)
