Dream of a new skin

30 Aug
I had this bizarre little dream last night that Chaals was giving me access to a download website for bootleg Opera skins :) …bootleg skins… /me shakes head…

And it was bright orange and he insisted it was *the* skin to get and that I would get used to it and grow to love it :) …bright orange… it totally clashes with the Opera red… /me shakes head…

I woke up amused and thought I hadn’t changed the skin of Opera in ages (I still haven’t, mind you, I don’t really see the need or amusement to change my environment aspect –quite the contrary, I like it to be stable).

Eugénie went for a walk

Impératrice Eugénie et ses dames

Impératrice Eugénie et ses dames


I dreamt of “L’Impératrice Eugénie parmi ses dames d’honneur” by Winterhalter (1855), that I know because there’s a small reproduction in my parents’ dining room.

The Empress Eugénie was having a nice and quiet afternoon with her friends from the palace, sitting in the beautiful and shady garden in Compiègne.

I could hear their educated, sophisticated and subdued conversations. Two were laughing lightly, another was humming a song, one was lost in the contemplation of flowers, two were whispering secrets, two were undecided as to which conversation to follow, and the empress was rather bored. I was on my way to the kitchen and wasn’t paying attention to them.

On my way back to my room, something was missing.
The Empress Eugénie had left.
I guessed she had gone for a solitary walk.
