It's odd, but whenever I'm ill I always have the most amazing b'zzare and vivid dreams. And I can remember them afterwards. I can still several (well ok nearly 2) decades after I had several quite disturbing fever induced nightmares at the hands of the mumps I can still remember them.
This bout of illness was no exception - I really must at some stage sort my dream diary out again, but I guess if I get my arse into gear this could double as a dream diary too.
Anyway - here goes the latest peek into my psychie(sp?)
There's this kid and he's not a normal kid - he's kind some kind of tunnel vision. His field of vision is about the same width as a coffee mug. I'm not sure why, but we're on top of a building and he's trying to explain to me his affliction. I've no idea who the kid is or what his relationship is to me, but I feel like I should be helping him.
Next minute we're in some kind of doctor's office, I've a feeling that I've already missed part of what has gone here because the doctor then suggests it's my turn to talk. I've no idea what I should say, so I mumble nothings hoping someone else will say something that will give me an idea what I should be talking about.
Before anyone does, there's a noise (gun fire? someone being pushed out a window?) outside and the doctor races off explaining that she's been called away to deal with the situation outside.
The scene shifts again and I'm crouched behind a car outside a club. In my hand is a shotgun which I'm cautiously pointing upwards awaiting the gunmen (somehow I know there are gunmen inside who are coming out) to make an appearance. One of them walks out and amazingly, I can just point the shotgun upwards at his jaw from the other side of the car - obviously the car is 2 dimensional or something. He throws down his weapon, but his accomplice makes a run for it inside the club.
I give chase, leaving the first guy to the cops that have shown up but get caught up in the crowd of club-goers leaving. I end up trapped against the wall with a kid (not sure if it's the same one) and a group of girls dressed as nuns. The kid asks how come they're at a club if they're nuns and I explain that they're off duty. One of the nuns finds this really funny and starts flirting outragiously with me. Next minute I know we're kissing - she flatly refuses to go for any full on snogging - and the kid and the crowd has vanished.
We head back to my place where I share with my father. Not sure who else lives there. Someone has baked a fruitcake (how apt for me). The cute girl apparently finds fruitcake boring and has a way of spicing it up. She tells me and my father to mash the cake up and then add in whatever bits and pieces we can find, whilst she turns up the heat on the oven. She starts testing how hot things are by putting in a bowl with some kind of blue covering in and seeing what happens to the cover. Eventually after much melting and stuff she's happy and leaves us to it.
I decide to go for a walk and outside the world suddenly turns very Zelda-ish. I've no idea where I'm going or in fact where anything is, so I head off randomly and walk in a circle. On the route back I decide to run and rather than going around the many lakes that appear in the way, I run over them.
I get back to find that my father's idea of what to put in the new cake includes such oddities as ham sandwiches. I decide to give up on the whole idea and find the girl. This time when I leave I know vaguely where she lives so I head off in that direction. I walk past lots of houses and eventually (although it only takes a short while) I get to the house I think she lives in.
Unfortunately this is the point I woke up - I'll never know what got put in the cake, who the kid was, or whether that cute girl who likes dressing up as a nun will go any further.
