Apparently I'm making up vocabulary in my sleep now. In my bedside notebook today I find the following notation from last night: 4 3/9/14
A "blint" is a short, fierce sandstorm in which visibility drops to zero. Term originated w/ Human colonists on Mars in 21st century.
Not to be confused w/ the 10-day ones. Those are caparnawallahs.
(Shepard knows this.)
The significance of the last point, in particular, eludes waking me. Also note that sleeping me has a hard time remembering what month it is, and thinks "human" is a proper noun.
