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.

Summary of Dreamed Indignities

              During the last week of my dreams I have: had my pens stolen by a red-haired mop-topped skate punk, my car squashed by a large Humvee, dodged swings from an irate pizza party attendee, narrowly avoided being killed in a fusilade of gunfire from some sort of private paramilitary group, and been tossed from the deck of a research vessel into the dark cold waters of the arctic where I was pulling myself up onto an ice sheet and trying not to look like an injured seal in the process.
              All of these events in full surround-sound-technicolor-feel-o-vision. The arctic dream was so severe that I got up, told N about the dream, and then turned on the heating blanket. She suggested that if I put the blanket into pre-heat I would warm up faster. I told her "I don't want to melt the ice that fast, or I'll be sleeping in a puddle, level 2 will warm up fast enough." When I woke a few hours later, the blanket wasn't actually on, so I then realized that the telling N and turning on the blanket part was just another part of the dream.
              I think I dream that I wake up when the first dream is turning into a night terror, but it is still frustrating because I'm so sure that I talked to N and expect that she should remember.
