One of my dreams last night actually involved instant messenging. I think that's the first time that ever happened, despite the fact that I do a lot of instant messenging. I was at work, I was IMing someone I had in fact IMed that day...the verisimilitude was quite high. (Wow, I used a school word. Yay me.)
So, naturally, I'm trying to figure out what my subconscious is telling me with this. If I had the willpower, I'd go cold turkey, quit IM for a week altogether, and see what happened. Alas, I have not that willpower.
