I had the most bizarre dream. I found the VHS tape from the movie "The Ring" and I convinced a friend that we should watch it. I knew what was going to happen but he didn't, so it was kinda like a prank I guess.

Once I put the tape in, we were both sucked into a different world, almost like a video game. We were walking through this world, that was kinda like inside of a big house, essentially the gist of it was we had to go through these different rooms and try not to get attacked by various creatures. I knew the whole thing but my friend did not so I'm kinda thinking in my head "wait until he sees this part it's pretty crazy". I guess almost the same way you would be thinking if you introduce a friend to a horror movie and you know some part is going to be a jump scare.

At one point I found myself into this sea but it was in a kitchen, and there were these weird tentacle type creatures that had deformed heads and I remember telling my friend to avoid those if he can, and I was fighting with it and it was rather strong and trying to pull me in. I managed to slip out and get to "shore" which was just another part of the house.

I think I woke up to my alarm around this point.

Yeah that was a weird dream lol. Melatonin tends to do that.

Wednesday moring nef.

Really should figure out how to make coffee at home,even if it's just instant coffee.


(I'd make myself a poor man's mocha,with milk,since I don't like the taste of black coffee.)

Kinda sleepy right now.

Break snooze! You can dream a lot in 15 minutes.

Not but you know how sometimes you randomly remember your dream, yeah, it was that. We'll go with that. :p
When I was in the Navy and underway, I loved to take a nap after lunch during the crossing (Atlantic). Nothing like scarfing down some grub and then hitting your rack. I would set my alarm for 20 minutes. Just enough time to get some dreamage. My rack was right over the screw. Slept like a baby.

I picked up an Apache radio station this morning. We knew Spanglish was a thing but I now know that Apachlish is also a thing.

Was playing with an AM radio at night and managed to pickup stuff from what I assume was Mexico. It sounded like it might be Spanish but not 100% sure. Ionosphere bounce is an interesting thing.

could be this

Hmmm could be and that makes more sense as I typically pickup stuff in Toronto area. Furthest I can confirm is Boston.

Shortwave is interesting too, I need to play around more with antennas one day to see how far I can pickup. I've only used a basic long wire.
