Wait, what? - A little less than a happy high

Wait, what?
Last night I had a dream that was a tongue-in-cheek tale of my selling my soul in tiny parts to a heavy-set demon with vise-shaped hands. Worse, in spite of any attempts to derail the dream by refusing to do things because they were just plain dumb were met with responses like, "Oh, you think you have a choice?" When given the option of losing a piece or thrusting my hands into paper bags filled with glass shards, I decided I did and woke myself up.

I can't say as I was entirely thrilled about this one (and I definitely don't appreciate the loss of sleep), but it did certainly highlight a nagging fear I have that it is too late for me. Intellectually, I realize that this is far from true, but the subconscious still works in funny ways.

That dream, if you'll forgive my saying so, is an awesome dream to read about someone else having.

I totally get the "too late for me" thing, though. Or at least I have my own version of it. Here's to being wrong about that.

Awesome as in "Hey, cool!" or awesome as in "I'm glad that one was yours"?

I'd guess the latter.

It's a thin line sometimes between kicking my own ass for motivation's sake and simply feeding the inertia. I sincerely hope we're wrong, and for my part, I'm going to continue laboring under the assumption that I am.

...mostly, at least.

I don't suppose you watched the cartoon Futurama? http://www.gotfuturama.com/Information/CharacterBios/clamps.dhtml

I consider a guy, older than me but not too old, just getting out of prison. He's clean and sober and is going to build himself a future. I like to think I'm going to do at least as well as him.

Clamps is sort of right, though he had more of Bender's build and wasn't robotic. I think anyway.
