Thoughts and Dreams of Aaron Schmidt

This is the online journal of Aaron Schmidt where he records his thoughts (when they seem relevant) and his dreams (when he can remember them).

31 January 2004 In the war

Crazy dream last night. Kravitz and I were in a war defending our home base. Our position was strong and as the enemy rolled in Kravitz would lob grenades into the group with me shooting any leftover survivors. This continued for quite some time.

I remember at one point, Jim Brennan and his wife Joy arrived and everyone considered it a miracle that they had broken through enemy lines.

Later on in the night, I was inside the base awaiting the next wave of enemy attacks when I noticed Jim calmly talking with the Colonel. Next thing I know, the Colonel stabs Jim in the ribs with a long double edged knife. Jim goes down in a pool of blood but before he dies, the Colonel removes his eyes.

I went into shock and everything starting moving in slow motion. Then the siren sounded and I knew I had to get outside to help my buddy Kravitz.

So I'm putting on my socks and my shoes and my shirt and desperately trying to find my gun clip which I thought was in my pants but maybe it was the pants from yesterday and I'm running all over the base looking for my gun clip and my vest and a weapon because it appears I've lost mine. All this in frustrating slow motion with an overwhelming sense of urgency choking my mind.

I ended up collapsing on the ground with the siren wailing in my ears and that is when I woke up to the alarm going off beside the bed.

29 January 2004 French TV

I just finished watching the 4th (or 5th?) episode of Le Bachelor. (Yah it's cheezy but I got hooked one night with Aurélie and now I can't stop !!)

What amazes me to no end is the amount of commercials for television programming in France. The show started at 8:55 and ended at 10:20, almost one hour and a half and in that time there was only 1 commercial for a grand total of 5 minutes.

1 commercial !!

How do they make money? Seriously...
