So I had a Lord of the Rings-themed dream last night that involved my workplace. First, I dreamed that my co-workers in the University of Arnor Archives were working while singing “Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold.” Since we essentially work in a tunnel/cavern environment, singing dwarf songs made a certain amount of sense. Then I dreamed that the department head insisted upon sharing the psych evaluation of one of the reference librarians with me. That was much more bizarre since a) we don’t have psych evaluations and b) I’m too far down in the chain of command to see those kind of personnel documents. For comparison purposes, that would be like Saruman sharing Grima’s psych evaluation with Merry and Pippin.
As I was pondering if my department head had definitively lost his marbles, I woke up. I’ve been re-reading the Lord of Rings trilogy so maybe that explains it.
