Last night I dreamt that I was humiliated at a Neil Gaiman signing. In the next dream, I was working while dodging people at a crowded family gathering (and I don't think it was my family). That dream turned into trying to avoid technical restrictions on work's network, and ended with a long section in which I was fired, and tried to apply for a job at Canadian Tire, where the staff took pity on me and got together enough money to almost cover the "application fee" for me, but I accidentally left without the application form. I then had a long lonely walk to "home".
My other dreams have been similarly cheery in the past couple days - dreams of loss, humiliation, and abandonement.
