    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!).

    Nah, don't go to many, thank God.

    TNP is in a bit of a rut.

    Sometimes it feels like that, but no, I don't think so.

    TNP has been kissed today.

    Nope. Not even the remotest fantasy. I did have a day yesterday full of unusually friendly encounters, but purely of the Platonic ideal of friendliness.

    TNP is kind of involved in a soap opera, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer or the daytime TV things or whatever.

    I've been on the fringes of a few of those, but not lately, thank God.

    TNP knows someone who regularly watches a particular soap opera.

    Sure. A bartender is really into one of those daytime ones, I can't remember which. I'm pretty sure my mother still watches some of those. I'm a repeat viewer of Buffy and Twin Peaks, which I think count.

    TNP had no idea until today that Roger Federer was still playing, currently at the Australian Open (tennis). That's an old boy, right there! He's like my age!

    No, I didn't, but I really don't follow tennis.

    TNP has played tennis in the past two months.

    Mmmm....hmmmm....well....you know, what with the weather and all and...hmmm....you know, the club isn't what it used to.....mmmm....well, I'll say, old boy, I haven't played a set in since I can't remember! Jolly rogering good of you to bring that up: I will have my boy said he is to bring it up again, next meetings, he shall.

    TNP imagines fancy people speaking in posh British accents.

    Heh. Yes, I do, now and then. And sometimes I do it myself.

    TNP has watched the British Prime Minister's Questions on TV in the past year.

    Can't say as I have.

    TNP knows useful things in the events of a landslide closing a major highway, or tracking a tailgater to his or her house, namely, knowing the backroads and lesser-travelled streets like the back of one's hand.
