    Perhaps you've forgotten...or maybe never really knew...but I do play Pokemon GO! And, my current achievement was to catch and transfer 430 Pokemon to the professor. I was kept busy nearly all night long! LOL. I even had to resort to using some incense to lure Pokemon to my "net". :)

    ADD EDIT: BTW, this is the grandson, who, at 12 years old, I took to the local Micro Center where he had to call his dad to get permission to purchase his first Assassin's Creed game. He's now 19 and I can't believe the gamer I've created!!! :D

    I had a dream last night telling me to have children. Hopefully it won't be a recurring dream.

    I think for @IvanV it wasn't a nightmare. :D

    True, I was quite happy in that dream! :)

    My dream was quite disturbing. Some of us like flying solo. @Trusteft @Tyrsonswood @Tipstaff

    The only thing that annoys me is that I am not immortal. It's very inconvenient.

    Speaking of dreams: I've had several dreams where I'm either trying to get somewhere...or trying to find something.

    When I wake up, my first thought is: "Great! I don't have to do that!" :)

    99% of my dreams are unique, and most of them I remember less than half of whatever I was dreaming about. I know if you're having the same dream over and over your sub conscious is trying to tell you something.

    My MS Office applications disappeared today. In the control panel, they appeared as installed (with yesterday's date, which was strange), but I couldn't find them in start (including search) and Office documents weren't associated with any application. A repair from the Control Panel restored them quickly. It was probably a bad update.

    I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this, but Xiaomi is the company with the best product naming scheme in the world. It's true!
    Case in point, Mi True Wireless Earbuds Basic 2 and Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic are two completely different sets of earphones. :D

    In other news from China, I got my spare batteries plus charger for my action camera from AliExpress. They came in a big soft package, marked "plush toy". "Those cheeky buggers!", I thought as I cut the parcel open to discover that I've sliced some big plush cushion that was inside it. Lo and behold, it was an actual plush dolphin, and crammed next to it was a smaller cardboard box, presumably containing my goods. To my surprise, though, it only contained the charger and not the batteries, in which I was more interested. I was quite a bit miffed for a second and then I remembered that the dolphin had an opening at the front, for inserting its own batteries (I'm not sure if it lights up or makes a sound, it takes two AAs, but those were not supplied), and indeed inside I found, each in its own plastic case, the two batteries I ordered! It's never boring getting stuff from AliExpress! :D Too bad about the cut I made on the toy. :(

    In other, more local news, helicopters are flying over my home the whole day, possibly in relation to the Non-Aligned Movement Summit that's taking place in Belgrade.
