Laying Off the Sauce (er, Book)

I just woke up from a deep sleep of about three hours. I've spent the entire day (after working, of course) reading Robert Fisk's book, The Great War for Civilisation: the Conquest of the Middle East. I got the book as a Christmas present and have finally had some time to read it, really read it. I'm on the chapter right now about the end of the Iraq-Iran War. In the previous chapter, Fisk was describing the trains the Iranians used to bring back to the cities victims of chemical attacks and ship new soldiers out to the front. Well, in my dream (among many other things), I dreamt I was on a train talking with the mother of my ex-girlfriend and my sister of all people. The train suddenly came to a stop when I realized my wallet and Oakley sunglasses were on the tracks and about to be run over. I woke up with my arm outstretched in the air (no, not from stretching, literally outstretched) as if trying to stop something from happening. Yeah, I need to stop reading this book for a bit.

Mind boggles, Matt.
