My CPU is fried...
I didn't sleep very well last night, my dreams were unsettling and most were of the delirious kind.

The most prominent of the lucid ones was the earthquake dream. Misty and I were in a tall building constructed from brick, and there was an earthquake. Buildings around us were falling, and I knew it was just a matter of time before ours did. I grabbed Misty and stood in a doorway waiting for the inevitable. The upper floors started to crumble, there were bricks and masonry falling all about us and I felt the whole building sway. Finally the floor began to tumble away from us, and the room we was in fell almost whole to the ground. I had managed to keep myself upright and was walking up a wall (the room was at a crazy angle) but Misty had lost her footing and I was dragging her with me, keeping her from getting brained by the falling debris.

That's about when I woke up, my mouth dry and my heart pounding like I'd really just dragged an adult body in a falling room. Misty was lying beside me, elbows as usual in the side of my head.

I lay awake for a while, my mind racing with nonsense, song words repeating themselves endlessly, AoE type legions lining up in my head, and me deploying them, waiting for a battle that didn't come.

When I did finally get back to sleep, it was filled with strange dreams, my mind was obviously still working on *something*.

Now I feel like I've not slept at all, I'm walking around like a zombie downing cup after cup of caffeine in the hope that it'll last me through the day.
