A weird and woozy day

I had a very strange dream yesterday afternoon while sleeping off a big lunch from Zoe's. Something about a wolf that was chasing me, and it started out as a cub but it got bigger and bigger over the course of the dream, and everywhere I went (I'm talking, like, downtown here. At one point I was hiding in a restaurant, and at another point a maze-like clutch of tiny rooms with sofas and Greek statuary in an oddly-well-lit college basement, and there was a particularly scary part in an alley) it would run straight for me every time it saw me, even though it was having plenty of fun eating other people, and I spent the whole dream running away until finally it caught up with me and I realized that because I was the first person it had seen, it thought I was its mother, and it didn't want to hurt me at all. And then there was some dramatic denouement where I was driving through a fifteen-foot snowdrift to get back to My Wolf who was dying of... something. I don't know, grief or loneliness or not being allowed to eat people anymore, I guess. And I found it and hugged it and then I started wiping off my neck and all kinds of gore started coming off, which was kind of horrifying, and then I realized I had saved the wolf by letting it drink blood from my neck. Or something. But the gore wasn't actually real, it just had to be wiped off and I wasn't really hurt. I... don't know. I cannot discount the idea that Scout came up and started licking me while I was asleep during that last part. I won't even go into the part about how me and the Animal Control lady started trying to get the wolf to a zoo and the... director (?) of the zoo drove off without us, because it just gets weird and disjointed at that point. Yes, that point.

Patrick Swayze Has Cancer, Weeks To Live?; Breaking: Patrick Swayze 'Has Five Weeks To Live' Due To Spread Of Pancreatic Cancer; Mystery Surrounds Swayze Cancer Battle; Swayze's Doctor Speaks. Whoa. I'm having a hard time believing this isn't some kind of hoax, although apparently his rep confirmed it. On the other hand: who wanted to believe what happened to Heath Ledger?

Wikipedia founder's private troubles go public, in which Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales apparently broke up with a Canadian journalist via Wikipedia, and is also using the site to retcon any mention of its co-founder.
