the last weeks i had a lot of intense dreams, some of them kept me switching between sleeping and being awake. today i woke up at 10 and all i could think was WTF. Being hunted by zombies all night it takes a bit to get acquainted to a morning in a Malaysian bungalow overseeing nature and a fountain…

I had a weird dream about apocalypse. first we were hunted by some police organization and i was hijacking boats and planes just to get not killed, then, when trying to kickoff a plane which starts from water the hunt changed, there were two sorts of people hunting. and so hunters got hunted, too by zombies. yeah.. i dreamed of zombies taking over the world. however, they were much more aesthetic than the zombies you know from tv, they had black eyeballs and they weren’t dead, they also did not suck brains. they just assimilated others and then you were screwed. thankfully they were easy to kill. when the hunt changed into running away from zombies there was a rumor that in ca. 2 days running to the north there was a safe place, so we did. unfortunately, when jumping into a pond our third member got assimilated, we killed a few zombies additionally to those who were in the way and kept running. arrived in the north there were a couple of towns, and when it turned night we needed to hide in the left houses, there were beds containing sarcophagus where we usually slept. but then the next night in another town we discovered a potentially additional enemy. there humans, safe and machines (to be clearly mostly kitchen utensils) were the main supply for everything. just as an example, when i discovered the machines, a group of people living there demonstrated that the machine could turn a potato (and everything else) into something different. The first demonstration was turning a potato into a chopped apple. I didn’t believe and so I let turn an old shoe into foie gras. Looked a bit different but the flavors were ok. the scary part there was that humans seemed to be grateful and totally dependent on the machines. No fears about zombies, no feeling of dependency.

Then I woke up, realized it was 10AM and run down to the breakfast. So, basically I dreamed a mixture of zombies, terminator and wall-e. Big WTF.

… in a train between Swindon and Reading. Just searched for a cause and found out what the incident was:

Train services are being disrupted due to a person hit by a train between Reading and Didcot Parkway. Short notice alterations, cancellations and delays of up to 60 minutes can be expected.

(found here)

Update: Meanwhile the ‘incident’ turned into a ‘fatality’. I was waiting in Didcot Parkway listening and now I am back on the train.

Instead of sitting in the plane with Jimmy this morning I got up around 6.30am to meet up with Jose and Dermot to queue up for Iron Maiden tickets. Sadly we have been the entire queue for 2 hours. The expected high demand didn’t happen at all. Close to 9am the shop owner arrived telling us that his ticket printing machine is broken and we have to go somewhere else. While we were running we called our significant others to give them instructions what to order where. Eventually we arrived at the other shop, no queue whatsoever. The shop got opened, when we entered we got a call that all our tickets has been ordered online – no issue to get them online this time. WTF.

I! Could! Have! Slept! Instead!

Anyways, now I am a proud owner of a ticket for the Iron Maiden Final Frontier World Tour on Friday 30 July at the O2 in Dublin, with special guests Heaven & Hell. Hurray!

How to explain a 5 year old that we will arrive 2 days later because a Volcano in Iceland exploded?

My flight tomorrow morning got canceled, now I hope to fly out on Saturday evening. The trend looks scary where the dust cloud goes, I hope I can fly out at all, otherwise I might have to move my Dresden trip.

Looking at the meteorologic maps I am not too convinced this is actually going to be happen.
