dream: someone with more knowledge would be more dangerous

Being carried out to dinner with various friends in sedan chairs. The first place we intend to go is one person (Mags?)’ favorite, since one can be in and done in an hour, eat really well, and only pay $8. That place is closed, though, so the sedan chairs take us to another restaurant, way up in a skyscraper, a place fancy enough to have its own nuclear reactor and special entrances to same. While trying to find the correct door in the all-white halls, I notice one of the parking valets walking around looking suspicious. Then I notice him connecting a bunch of filing cabinets with cat5 cabling, opening a window, and pushing the first one out, presumably to pull something else critical out when all the cabinets fall.

dream: two this morning

one, an immersive trip home, where David hung out with me but still managed to do everything wrong. He had a startac phone, like I used to have, but he’d covered it with packing tape and only wanted to get me and (other character) to go to a strip club with him.

Then, after Kate left for work, a Lord of the Rings dream, following Sam and Frodo as they met a hyena (which transformed from a bloodthirsty beast to a yellow lab) and a snake (who later turned out to be Gandalf, wending his way back to human form after dying) and a valkyrie (the hope being that the yellow lab and the valkyrie would find each other) and culminating by coming down a steep staircase into a room filled with orcs who fired their bows and arrows out the window to signal that we’d walked right into their trap, and a long scene in this room as we tried to figure a way out — we had the Ring, they had us.
