Attempted to nap at my parents' place after the delivery was, well, delivered, but my brother woke me up when he got home at 3:30, and I've been tired since then. They fed me, though, so hey. Bonus. BBQ chicken, no less, from St-Hubert's. (I've had that three times in the last two weeks. Mmmmm.)

Drove myself home (Mom at my side) in my dad's company car (coughlexuscough) and enjoyed driving a luxury vehicle entirely too much.

Headed out about 40 minutes later to go see the fireworks for the last time this summer. I was wholly underwhelmed. There was virtually no wind tonight, and so a HUGE portion of the fireworks were hidden by clouds of smoke.

[livejournal.com profile] mzac and I did wind up meeting a strange Quebecois man who spent 20+ years in the States, his sister, and his daughter (who lives in Dallas and hates when people anglicize her name, despite the fact she doesn't speak a WORD of French). That was... special. :)

Got home around 11:45 or so, and I'm now going to crash.

Tomorrow: bank to exchange US dollars to Canadian, movie with grandmother with money uncle sent (the aforementioned US cash), back home, then out for driving lesson at 6. Home by 7, dinner while watching my All My Children tape of the day's episode, then getting to work on a contract site. And maybe fit some laundry in there, somewhere.

Eesh, I'm already tired just thinking about it.

First of all, I dreamt I was in university. Only not exactly. There were still people walking around the hallways wearing my high school uniform. Thankfully, I was not one of them.

None of my exams for my courses were on specific dates. I could basically pick and choose when I wanted to do them, as long as I showed up in a two week window.

I was taking something called (I kid you not) Fake Physics for Philosophers. This has got to have something to do with the crack I made at my father last night about him having graduated with a BA in Philosophy with a minor in zoology.

Anyways, I'm in the hallway of the school (and it looked like my own university), and I saw this familiar face as I'm walking by a doorway. I stop, I reach out and tap her on the shoulder. Lo and behold, it's SY from high school and she's one of the several people wearing the high school uniform. I haven't seen her in years, IRL, and so it was weird for her to just show up in my dream like that. We went to my exam together, because she was helping out with the artistic part of Fake Physics for Philosophers which... well, this is where it gets BIZARRE.

It's like I was in a virtual reality simulation, only EVERYTHING seemed really real. It was winter in the sim and I'm walking down this hill of moguls and stuff, trying to find my way around, and if I managed to do so, I'd pass the exam and the class.

But I could talk to SY and the teacher, actually.

Now SY had a set of specific instructions. Like, "draw a goat". But when I encountered the goat in the VR setting, the goat had come out more like a lion. And I'm like, "Uh, S? YOU DREW A LION. FIX IT NOW."

There was a whole other thing where I was travelling with my dad and we got our own hotel rooms somewhere, and another thing where I was in a grocery store with my grandmother around, and could not find eggs or bread for some reason.

And no, I had no hot dogs before bed. WTF!?

Very tired, but I must get up and run to the bank before seeing a movie with my grandmother.
