~7:30am Miss Cupcake was restless, but not getting up, but I wanted to snooze a bit longer, but her sighing and sniffling and fidgeting with her phone make that unlikely. When I'm not feeling sleepy then I leave the bedroom so as not to disturb her sleep. The situation has improved in the year-and-some since we cohabited, but it's still not a consistently two-way courtesy. So despite the unfairness I feel about it, rather than repeat myself yet again, I took my pillow and a spare blanket to the master bedroom where the new mattress is still waiting for the bed frame.

It took a while but I did get another sleep cycle in, and the bits of dream I remember toward the end was - I was using a smrtfon app to navigate the shopping mall and it reminded me of a video game, like Pac-man or the overhead tactical view in a CRPG. I encountered Derek Flubacher and he was married to [another high school classmate] and I woke up trying to formulate some kind of congratulations on making it work since high school in light of how my own affairs fell short of stability.

Not being able to name the girl Derek was married to in the dream, I pulled out my HS yearbook after breakfast. We had a pretty large graduating class to page through. I was reminded of a few people who provoked visceral feelings of contempt, but also many who I wished I had known better or stayed in touch with. In the end I decided the wife in the dream must be Shiela Chaplin, but much taller than real life.
