brain scabs, breadcrumb scabs

i keep becoming awake with a headache and nosebleed. this has happened for five consecutive days. maybe i have a brain tumour. or swine flu. i have a theory lou dobbs invented swine flu because he is a scaremonger and bioterrorist. i am 73% serious. someone spoke to me and my brain produced an image of mary poppins and dick van dyke dancing on chalk drawings. i am convinced this is a symptom of brain tumour. i will see a voodoo witch doctor.
