    dotsIn Dreams, etc. dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Though, as I earlier said in a semi-public chat elsewhere, I am quite in love (and/or lust) with this wonderful girl, my current infatuation or paramor, you might call her; still, despite that, in dreams last night, I dreamed of the girl that I had lusted after prior to her...yet I spoke to her mother in it and both her and her mother had assumed a New Jerseyan (and thus, annoying) demeanor and dialect. The intricacies of this dream and it's deeper, inner, hidden meaning continue to allude me. Although I do rather suspect that the dream has something to do with my subconscious's present, newborn distaste with/of that particular girl...who my conscious long ago dismissed as a bitch. Yet, apparently, there was a delay (as there is with gas prices and crude oil by the barrel prices) between the distaste assumed by my conscious self and that eventually assumed by my subconscious/unconscious.

    So, then: that is that. However, I would like to make a brief reference to something, now that I have finally finished it. You see, earlier this morning (I mean, like 2am) I finally completed my reading of Herman Melville's immortal classic novel, "Moby-Dick" and, I noticed a parallel or reference to it, in The Simpsons, that I had never realized before. You see, in the episode, "Last Exit to Springfield" in the Fourth Season, Mr. Burns, prior to shutting down the power of all Springfield, says: "Goodbye, Springfield. From Hell's heart, I stab at thee." Now, I had always wondered if that was a thinly-veiled reference to or paraphrasing of some famous line in poetry or drama (like say something of Shakespeare's), but then, in reading the final two pages of "Moby Dick" last night/this morning, I noticed where it had originated: It is one of the final things said by a crazed Captain Ahab, in his final battle with the demonic White Whale! Amazing, no?
