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.

Garden Gnomes

I got the water back at the house, finally, so the first thing I did was take a shower, then a nap.  Sleeping is one way to escape the heat of the afternoon, at least for me. While I was napping I dreamed that I was a garden gnome, with a half scissor for a sword, and an old sock for a cap.

I learned that the reason gnome caps are red is that they are dipped in the blood of their enemies. I also learned that when you aren't any bigger than a squirrel, pretty much everything in the world is your enemy. It was an odd experience seeing even a well mowed lawn as an obstacle strewn meadow, as this particular yard was full of bur vines and gopher holes deep enough sometimes to hide in. I may end up with a phobia about snakes and raccoons after this dream. Some time near the end of the dream I realized I was pressing keys on a keyboard to cast my spells, and suddenly discovered that I was just playing World of Warcraft with the VR interface tuned all the way up. That was shortly before I realized that I was dreaming and dumped myself completely out of it.
