So, as part of the oral surgery madness, I had to attend a sleep clinic to make sure that they didn't need a machine go *ping* during the operation, as people with my jaw structure apparently often have sleep apnea. (Alternative explanations would include graft to friends in the medical profession or a stalling tactic by the surgeon going on maternity leave.)

So, I showed up at the clinic and found I'd been assigned to the Francisco Goya room. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with Goya, but I know his work a bit. As I'd opened the door I wondered if I'd find one of his Black Paintings across from my bed. (Particularly Saturn Devouring His Son.)

Fortunately, it was only "The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters".

But still as thematically appropriate as it might be, who the hell would have that in a room where you're trying to help people sleep? WTF?

In the words of Zaphod Beeblebrox: "OK, so ten out of ten for style, but minus several million for good thinking, yeah?"

Actually, as I almost never have nightmares and feel jealous of people who do, I wish it had affected me.
