Media-oriented dreams

Then I was wide awake for awhile and had this conversation with hoppie, who being sick, can't sleep right. He was thirsty and I was sleepless so I went downstairs to get us both some water. Because I have a vague preference for bottled water in bed (which is less likely to spill), I went to the basement to get two bottles of water which I brought back up. Then we had a discussion that went something like this:
Me: Do you need any more?
Hoppie: No, drinking 16 ounces of water is probably enough.
Me: Oh, is that how big they are?
Hoppie: Something like that.
Me: Probably between 12 and 16 anyway.
Hoppie: Something like that.
Me: (straining to read the lable in the dark)) .5 L
Hoppie: So about 16.9 ounces.
Me: So between 12 and 20 ounces then.
Hoppie: No, you were right the first time.
Me: Between 12 and 16. No.
Hoppie: Yes, it's 16....(long pause) Oh, I see what you mean. Fine, so between 12 and 20 then.

Eventually, I got back to sleep and had this rather disjointed dream.

And I picked up the new TiVo from FedEx this morning.
