Odd dreams

Just now, I dreamt that, for reasons I do not comprehend, I went back to work for Qualcomm for a day. I spent a lot of time rushing around picking up parts of sound systems left lying on the floor near the edges of platforms and stairwells where they could accidentally be kicked underneath the railing. At the end of the day, I returned to the office I was using to package up the changes to the software I'd modified and turn them in, but my computer had already been removed from my desk. I also had a car removed from a valet parking lot. I wasn't worried about that, thinking "they've got their car, probably took it the same time as the computer, they'll just have to get the keys from the valet." But I was worried they wouldn't find or understand my work on the PC they'd taken. The building wasn't one I actually worked in. It was kind of a fusion of Building V and DCL. (Which are both buildings with long multi-story atriums.)

This only strikes me as odd because tomorrow is the 2-year anniversary of my departure from Qualcomm.

Again, I was sleeping through my alarm clock. I was finally woken up when the phone rang. It was the Citibank fraud department. I assume they got curious when I had two orders go through on the same day, both of which I believe were punched into credit card terminals by hand. (I know one was for sure, as it was by voice.)

I'm nearing the end of my first spool of blank DVD-R discs. I bought them just shy of a year ago. By this time next week I'll have burned 100 DVDs, including a few coasters. (One of those orders yesterday was another spool. $20 cheaper than last year.) I am still working on the spool of 100 blank CDs I bought three or four years ago.
