Dreams and awakenings

Over the past couple of weeks, I've had several very strange dreams (which, since I didn't jot them down, I now don't recall except that they were odder than usual.)  Some were disturbing and some were merely weird (talking vegetables?  With angst?).   I looked at all the usual things but found nothing: no new meds, no new foods, no new stressors, and yet not so much same-old-same-old as should cause weird dreams. 

Weird weather, yeah.   Would weather do it?  Maybe.

Anyway, this afternoon after church, I took a nap, and was having a *good* dream (in fact, would have been a very productive dream) about the new book, when the phone rang and woke me up.  Someone wanting me to answer a bunch of survey questions.   Grump.  My mother-in-law used to call on Sunday afternoons (every week...)  when we were...um...resting....   And she would start off brightly with "What are you doing?"    However, in terms of annoyance, I think someone calling at 4 on a Sunday afternoon to ask you to take a survey for the benefit of newspapers and television statements is higher up the scale of annoyance.   I said I wasn't interested, and hung up, but could not go back to sleep.  I think this may be the same people that called yesterday, when Richard gave them the same answer.
