    Unless it's a nightmare, I really do like to dream, and even moreso if I can remember at least a bit of the dream when I wake up.

    TNP has had a particularly vivid dream in the past month.

    Yes. I don't remember the details, except that they were boring things about work. Definitely vivid, and definitely inversely proportional to how much I've had to drink before retiring.

    TNP thinks knowing ASL (American Sign Language), or another signed language, would be both neat and surprisingly useful and is therefore considering learning the basics soon.

    I suppose, but I don't think I have the gray cells, attention span or time to do it right. I do have a good friend who's an ASL interpreter, though.

    On a similar note, TNP had not seen this British news story before: https://www.hellomagazine.com/royalt...sign-language/

    True. I'd not seen or heard about that before. Prince William is the good one, right? Apparently!

    When TNP is typing up even an abbreviated CV or some similar bit of document, it takes him or her about three or five revisions to get it right.

    Oh, at least.

    TNP has revised his or her CV in the past month.

    Yeah, in a sense. Just made a condensed and specific version to fit on one page a "(Semi-Truck)-Yard Specialist" manager (L3, they call it) job. Wasn't difficult, but I still habitually fiddle with precise wordings and all that, so it took a few minutes of reflection and editing.

    TNP has ever personally noticed some of the ridiculously specific HR requirements for various jobs, especially in the tech industry. It's plainly ridiculous, which I think is well-known by the general public at this point. But some companies seem to be more absurd than others, let's say.

    I haven't, but I can't say I'm particularly surprised.

    TNP will be going to a fundraiser this week (I'll be going to two tonight!).
