Another particularly odd one this morning. I can’t remember much of the early part of the dream, but it involved lots of flaky wax coming out of my ear in a nice “ooh I’ll be able to hear again” kind of way (as opposed to a Shrek kind of way). But then I was surfing the web, reading a document about the Octogenarian Zero, which turned out to be a malapropism for base-80 zero. Aparrently this had something to do with there being 80 parts in some kind of cell-death mechanism, and the zero was written like a kind of ascii smiley, sort of }{=! (my memory of it isn’t very clear) with the curly braces looking a bit like a chromosome.

What a load of bollocks!
