I'm unsure of the date. It was around this date, anyway.

In the dream, I was in a video rental shop in Germany, a really fine place with rock walls, painted white (the surface of the walls was rough cast). A lot of stuff happened there. I was floating around the shop in air; to stop, I needed to get into the corner of the room.

I wanted to rent some of the movies, apparently, and paid with some Euros. The clerk noted that I used Finnish coins and it turned out that he spoke Finnish very well.

I had an account with the shop, but obviously my account information was outdated. He asked me for the new details.

One field was missing from my account info. He asked for some preference that I did not understand immediately. After some questions, he deduced that I had no idea what he was talking of, so he showed the thing to me.

In order to recommend me good movies, he needed my opinion on the weather. In the shop was a window, from which a beautiful landscape could be seen. On the wall next to the window there was a long column of red buttons with numbers next to them. (The numbers were all less than 100, but there was only 20 or so buttons, and they weren't contiguously numbered.) When a button was pressed, the weather outside of the window changed: It started to snow, or it was foggy, or something else. I was wondering how they did it; apparently it was a real view, with low-tech special effects (snow machines or similar) to create a pretty convincing view.

I decided I liked the foggy view best, the swirling mists were pretty cool-looking. I also bought a bag of something to munch.
