Today, I dreamed I slept until half past three.
Then I woke up and it was 9:23. Seven minutes later, my alarm went off. I got up, got ready, and met a friend to watch (and film) him skydive. We drove an hour and a half to the jump site, along with another Hampshire kid, the friend's parents and a two-year-old they were watching. There, we were faced with a cloud cover that made it impossible to actually perform any jumps. We waited for about two and a half hours, but the weather decided that nobody would be falling from the sky today. Well, not on purpose, anyway.
The highlight of the trip was when the two-year-old turned to the Hampshire girl and said "What's cooking? You are!" in his best bachelor voice.
Later, I saw Toy Story 3 with a couple of other friends (one of whom kindly got me in for free, since she worked at the theater). It was FANTASTIC. I was impressed with the movie right from the start. It was definitely made for people my age, people who grew up with the first two movies. All of the characters felt the same as ever, and all of the action, gags, bobs and weaves were perfect. The plot... well, I won't spoil it, but it covers some really serious ground. There's a climactic moment towards the end that, thematically, is the kind of thing you wouldn't expect from a G-rated movie.
And tomorrow's back to jobhunting.

Today's thing: I took a good amount of footage today for my eventual summer docu-narrative thing. I'd say it works for today.
