I found out something I didn't know before today....

And it was...

The significance of Carol O'Neir's name in DWJ's The One Hundredth Dream
of Carol O'Neir.

I'd foolishly assumed that O'Neir was just a weirdness on O'Neil, but I
should have known better. According to
http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary (Merriam Webster online),
O'neiromancy or oneiromancy is "divination by means of dreams" and is
dated to 1652!

And just as a bonus for those who haven't been there, I was prompted to
look this up by The Brunching Shuttlecock's Rating of Fortunetelling
Methods at http://www.brunching.com/fortune1.html. (Brunching
shuttlecocks is a fun site.)

Best wishes,

Anita Graham
