I used to hear orchestra music that woke me up too when it got louder.

? Sorry, couldn't resist.

Smiler I thought about that too. I hear only music though (mostly violins and cellos), with no voices.

Maybe the demigod Muses were sending a gift as a dream-vision. Only explanation left, right?

If you like Neil Gaiman, then when you have a little bit of time to kill, read this short story by him.

Just read that, it was great. I've not read any Neil Gaiman apart from Good Omens. I almost bought Smoke & Mirrors recently, but opted for something else instead. After reading the short story I think I will be going back for it now.

The best book of short stories I ever read was Getting in the Head by an Irish writer called Mike McCormack. It's fairly old (mid nineties I think) but worth tracking down if you like short stories and 'weirdness'.

Misc

Origin or meaning of your Username: My friends all call me Kim-Chi, because I told my best friend that my mom (who was born in Vietnam) was going to be named Kim-Chi but then it was apparently against law or religion or something like that, so she was only named Angilita. And so my friend started calling me Kim-Chi (my name is already Kimmie) and it just kinda caught on to all my friends. and the respektor part... well, thats kinda obvious. And anyway, I use kim.chi.respektor for everything!

I can't answer all these questions. I am way older than most of you. That's enough for now.

But your screen name "swimmingpoolnoises" reminds me of this: Regina needs to find a day to re-learn this song ("Rockland County" we all call it) and finish it and record it some day. It really is a beautiful, interesting, and, sad to say these days, important, song.
