I've had two nights in a row of very little sleep -- about 4 hours on Sunday night and about 3 last night, none of it in one solid block.[1] This morning I was so exhausted it was all I could do to get out of bed. I shoveled the kids into the car and dropped them at their respective daytime holding-pens, and because I nearly dozed off driving a half-dozen times in the process, I went home, sent a note to work telling them I'd be in late, and crawled back into bed intent on getting a good 1-2 hr nap.

Woke up 4 hours later.

Would've slept longer, but had a dream so intensely disturbing it roused me right the hell out of sleep. Zombies? No. Nuclear war? No. Forgotten college final? No. I had a dream in which Kevin Costner had been the actor cast in the role of Captain Jack Harkness. Not that I have much against Kevin Costner -- generally I am ambivalent towards him as an actor -- but Costner as Jack? Eaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, run away!

Damn but my brain hates me. Nothing else for it but to just go to work for the remainder of the day.

I had this dream last night... (yes, I actually fell asleep long enough to dream)

In it, I was looking at a sudoku grid, about three-quarters filled in, floating in empty space. As I watched it seemed to be retreating, slowly at first then quickly gathering speed. I realized after a moment that it wasn't moving away from me, but was in fact shrinking. When it had collapsed down to a single point it exploded spectacularly, flinging millions of tiny fragments outward. As the fragments slowed, I realized they were numbers -- 1s and 4s and 9s and 2s and so on, all randomly distributed but now filling the entire universe, where, once they had reached a barely imperceptible outward movement, they began to shine.

I woke up with the realization that I had just witnessed/imagined the creation of the universe out of sudoku numbers.

and in the comments, does it worry anyone else that the sudoku puzzle wasn't completed before it was destroyed?

I had a really lengthy dream last night where I was in either a shop or a restaurant -- both, I think, sort of merged together. I was having a very earnest discussion with someone about writing and life and all that stuff, when a waitress/shop-clerk came up to me and politely tapped me on the shoulder. "Have you gotten around to reading the handout you were given on muscle cramps?" he/she asked.

"Not yet," I said.

The waitress/clerk went away and I resumed my conversation. A while later he/she returned and tapped me on the shoulder again. "Have you read it yet?"

"Still no," I said. "I'll read it soon."

The waitress/clerk went away again and I returned to my conversation. A few minutes later the waitress/clerk was back, seeming mildly anxious. "Have you read it yet?"

"No," I said. "I really will, though. I have it right here!" I held up the sheet of paper to show I still had it. It had a diagram on it, and a big red arrow.

"Okay," the clerk said, and then added something to the effect that it was important and I should read it right away. Then he/she went away again.

I resumed my conversation. A few minutes later the waitress/clerk returned for a fourth time, agitated now. "Have you read it? You really need to read it!"

"No, I haven't," I said. I remember feeling very guilty at that point. "I'm sorry. I promise I will, really soon now. As soon as I'm done here," I answered.

And then I woke up with a massive leg cramp.
