Here's a sledge hammer of dream symbolism:

I'm wading along the banks of a fast flowing river but I'm holding the IMC's sound board (at some points in the dream it might be my laptop). There is a nearby dam/waterfall and without warning the level of the river suddenly rises WAY up and the sound board gets wet. So I climb for higher ground and hold the board above my head but this makes balancing difficult. I try to get out of the valley away from the stream but it's a long way back and the waves keep getting bigger (with each one I have to stop and balance/hold on tight and ride it out). When I finally get back to a place where I can climb up and out of the streambed a friend is there holding out a hand to help me up. The biggest wave yet is coming crashing down the river towards me. Then I wake up.

Sounds like you need to buy a water proof sound board.

Are we going to have to stop you before you volunteer again? ;)

No. I'm much more able to roll with the punches being all half-timey and all. I'm currently overwhelmed but not so much so that I see no way out short of nervous breakdown.

I've decided to blow off many of this weekend's obligations, staying in town rather than stressing out trying to get to madison. xymboulos is randomly visiting tonight and for a few days! That's as good an excuse as any to blow off some commitments.

In time the waves will pass and I'll still be standing.
