I woke up in the wee hours of the morning for no apparent reason, wide awake and not at all sleepy. This was odd, as lately I've been taking both melatonin and diphenhydramine to do the sleepy, and it seems to have been working well, as I've been waking up and actually getting out of bed early and pretty well-rested.

I ended up fiddling with more monster-making. I managed to hit on a particular combination of things that work together in a very serendipitous manner for a particular creature (or set of creatures), though it isn't anything that I originally planned. I don't want to go into too much detail quite yet, as I'm still designing, and I'd rather unveil the monster in its glory rather than how I made it. It's like a magician showing you how he does his trick before showing you the trick itself, it takes away the fun.

Eventually I headed back to sleep and dreamed of meeting a really cool woman. That's been a common theme for the last couple of weeks, and I'm both a little intrigued and a little trepidated by what it portends.

Okay, you may not believe that a dream can have portential elements in it, but in my experience and my own style of dream analysis, it very definitely reflects the state of mind of the unconscious (if you follow the Freudian, or if you don't, then the sorting of experiences from short-term to long-term memory). I don't believe that my dream is being prescient about meeting a new woman, it's more that I am developing into being more receptive to making that happen.

There are common threads. There's always some activity involved that is challenging mentally, usually in some sort of puzzle-solving sense that requires intuition and mental agility. Not like sudoku puzzles, but more adventurous, like solving mysteries.

But it's a different woman every time.

Funny how I have so much better luck in my dreams than I do in real life.

Of course, I can usually fly, too. Or at least jump really high.
