me: I had a dream about neil gaiman the other night
me: he and my theis advisor were running an "america's next top model-cum-bootcamp" for science fiction writers
me: the final challenge was writing a short story about a domestic cow and a buffalo on glass with wax pencils, under a time limit
me: it was bizarre
me: then I got up and dealt with a gas leak at church
me: I came out to tell the service assistant that everything was ok, we just needed to not make any sparks, and she was shaking out a match.
