|Odd dream, iTunes rage, etc.

I just woke up from a 'nap', and by that I mean I got home at 7pm, passed the hell out, and just woke up. The dream was one of those disturbingly realistic ones- everything was just like normal life, except for the following:
-My online account for Spore actually worked, and I had patience to play a civilization into the space age.
-Transformers 2 was out already, and had sent me into fits of nerd rage for the same reason the first one did- because they'd used iconic buildings as stand-ins for cities that the buildings weren't in. I think the 6th Harry Potter movie was also out, which would set this dream in the near future?
-I went to church. To like, worship God. O_o I did not burst into flame upon entering. Apparently it was also a church in 1952 or something, because the men were in grey flannel suits and the women had gloves and adorable pastel hats. I think this was probably an anxiety dream over the quality of my millinery.
Other than those three things, it was pretty much a dream in which I went about my daily life, playing MMOs and arguing on the internet about abandoned buildings and/or giant robots.
Daily life, for real this time:
OMFG The Decemberists are playing here this spring!!!! Tickets go on sale tomorrow, so I will be heading down to the box office as soon as I remember if they're playing the Pabst or the Riverside.
I canceled my World of Warcraft account because I don't have the time or high-speed connection to play at the level to which I'd become accustomed, and it was too annoying to see other rogues on the server being better than me. Although since the expansion came out I was barely doing more than logging on to chat with friends, it still feels a bit as if I've amputated a limb. Now I'll have to find a whole new way to not have a life.
iTunes sucks, and a good deal of that suck is because it's impossible to use it at the beginning of a sentence without my grammar twitching. Also because it's managed to organize my music into a system that's so orderly I really can't argue with it, while simultaneously making it so I can't find anything. The iTunes store is also tweaking my completionistic tendencies, so it's a rather good thing I don't have any money to spend there.
Axis Powers Hetalia. What is this nonsense? Why am I so utterly amused by such a ridiculously inane take on history & politics? It would be a perfect example of the Theory of Anime Ruins Everything... except that I can't help but find it hilarious. :(
