All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.-Elias Canetti

One of the things I hate the most about being sick are the fever dreams. I don't know if everyone gets these but I have horrible anxiety dreams when I'm sick. My Mom still laughs at one I had as a teenager where I had to make tiny lawnmowers out of barbie body parts. I remember another from when I was in elementary school where I had to sort stacks of paper but my thumbs were huge (that one still upsets me). Here are a few I had during this recent bought of grossness (yay child in daycare bringing home all kinds of fun things).

1. I had to build video clips out of my cold. This one was probably because I fell asleep while Dave was watching Tosh.0.

2. I was moving in to my new room in my parents house and I was irritated because in an effort to be helpful they had tried to decorate it for me with some random unattractive crap*. I was trying to undo the damage taking down everything I could including a couple pictures that actually were up in my room when I was a kid and I always hated and I was getting pissed ('cause I'm generally so calm and non tantrumy) but when I got to the bed they put together for me and discovered it was a toddler bed I kinda lost it and started throwing things and yelling at my brother who came in to calm me down (I felt like a dick when I woke up).

3. Some superhero clad weirdo stole a...I don't know what it was...water ski thingy from a friend from work and filled it with used oil. Because I watch so many forensic shows I figured they could trace to oil back to the vehicle so we didn't want to pour it out. The problem was apparently friend from work was planing some sort of spectacular stunt and had flares all over the place and we had t remove them without blowing up. The dogs barked and woke me up so I'm not sure how that was gonna end.

*This part could totally happen we do not have the same taste. One time a couple years ago I was at their house for dinner we were discussing the fallout in some family we knew when the parent died and the kids all started fighting over the estate. My Dad made a joke about me having to wait a while for "all this". I looked at him like he was crazy and said "I don't want any of this junk."

I used to have the huge thumbs dream all the time when I was a kid. WTF is up with that?
And I have the people trying to mess up my house/room/environment dream a lot too. Someone tried to tell me it was because I had control issues. I told them not to speak until they held up their hand and were called upon.
