Bragging rights

So I had a pretty awesome Christmas this year. My work party was at La Caille, I got a sizable Christmas bonus, I learned how to make Ginger Beer, I'm getting a check for 3 weeks worth of work, and I had a blast with my in-laws and my family throughout the holidays. I love my family, I love my job, and I love Christmas time! What a great year! Here's hoping next will be just as awesome if not more.

This morning, right before I woke up I experienced a most interesting dream. It was so lifelike that I got confused midway through. Thankfully my wife's phone rang waking me from the most surreal dreamscape I've experienced in months.

Now, I know that dreams don't last very long, perhaps a few seconds. This dream seemed to last for hours. If you've ever watched Inception then you know it's a scientific fact that the brain thinks faster when you are asleep and dreaming, therefore dreams feel much longer than they are in real life. Well, whatever. If you didn't know that then look it up or something, I'm not here to teach you neurology.

Anyway, on to the dream itself. I was in a game, literally in it. I think it was a sort of Halo game, but given that I haven't played that in ages seems odd to me. Anyway, it carried a more realistic tone to it so I'll just say that it was some sort of military shooter game. Yeah.
