Fermius Firefly

A Dream Log, whenever I remember the dreams I've had.

Fermius is a pen name drawn from a series of short fiction I wrote when I published the small press magazine Stellanova (on paper.) I play RPG games to escape from my daily grind as a technology wage slave for the state of California. I eat out a lot in order to do my part in supporting our increasingly service level economy. I am butler to 2 feline masters. If you ask them they will tell you I'm not very good at it, late with dinner, don't have enough hands with brushes in them, and sometimes I even lock them out of their office.

Little Red as a Tin Toy

             I dreamed I was escorting a bus full of students to a contest of some sort. When the bus turned down a road that wasn't on the travel plan I became worried. The bus trundled on for several minutes and pulled into a self-storage yard, where a bright light from above shone down on it.
             The bus lifted into the air and was pulled up into the light. I pressed a button the the dash of Little Red and she turned into a little tin toy flying saucer, with us still inside, somehow, and we chased after the escaping UFO. I managed to catch up with the bus, and followed it into the rather cavernous bay of the UFO. I drove/flew us into a dark unused looking corner of the bay and Little Red resumed her normal shape and size.
             "I didn't know your car could do that," a parent who was traveling with me said.
             "I had it installed for emergencies."
             "I's sure like to know where you'd get one of those."
             "Actually, so would I."
             In another dream I was up at M and S's place visiting. Again with Little Red in her Tin Toy mode. Only I had put her in that mode with the remote and carried her into the house as there was no where to park on the street. I thought that was because M and S were having a party. They weren't though. It was only me visiting.
             While I was freshening up in the bathroom I found the medical insert for Viagra. I was trying to read all of the possible side effects. but realized that I wouldn't have time as the list was a couple of pages long. The funniest one was that it may "turn you and your twin purple."
             That got me thinking about my twin. I wondered where he'd gotten to, why he never contacted me, whether he was in trouble or not. Which in turn got me thinking, "wait, I don't have a twin." This pretty much kicked me right out of the dream.
             I woke with a splitting headache and difficulty breathing, so called in sick and went back to bed. I dreamed that I was sleeping outside and it had begun hailing. The hail thundered down around me. I could hear it cracking through the trees around me and feel it pummeling the sleeping bag, which was getting cold.
             When I woke I had all three kittens, their Uncle T-Rex and their Uncle Giles piled up on me, most of them pitty-pawing. The electric blanket had timed out and it was, except for where the cats were cuddled on me, very cold. Outside it was pouring and water was coming off the roof in sheets, overflowing the gutters. I love when my brain is determined to stay asleep and weaves reality into the dream.
