Sleep study with dream and avatar of six hours' duration

During the study I had a dream of sensors and wires, blood-red, falling
and failing. I floundered, foundered. I failed, faltered. A somewhat
reading-study (momentum, center-of-mass) evening. Images during sensor
attachment, and at the beginning of one of the wake-up periods, the reason
I'm there in the first place. This was just after an afternoon of wearing
Gaz' avatar-skin in the OpenSim SL alternative open-source space where I
ended up surrounded by deep aqua-marine, a perfect space of color.

When I stirred, I'd go back to reading Baez, A Universal History of the
Destruction of Books.

I BELIEVE Julu Twine MOVED in OpenSim and Alan Dojoji MOVED in Second
Life, in exact and specific COORDINATION with the OUTPUT from the ON-BOARD
sensors, which, in fact, totaled 1000 pages.

Google is photographing (all) American streets for integration into
their online mapping routines. In the process, citizens often appear
in the views carrying out their daily chores, such as visiting the
friendly local gun shop.

inconceivable, but Julu Twine gives it a try in OpenSim thanks to Gaz'
celebration of OpenSim anniversary with an avatar give-away, so here a
dance celebration - - she
grows on you; needless to say Gaz and hir works are amazing.
