spinnaker - weird dream
last night i had this weird dream.
i got a new job (i think it was at apple) and was starting my first day. i approached the campus (which from the outside looked like the infi-loop campus) and entered the courtyard where everything turned all weird harry potter 3 (the movie) looking. strange colors and all gothicy buildings instead of industrial technology campus. i had a folder in my hand that had all these papers i had to fill out (or get my new boss to fill out or something). i wasn't an official employee yet, the paperwork wasn't done.
i walked up this corridor and towards the largest building in the back left corner on the top floor (all the doors faced out of the building, like a motel) (this was so hp3 looking, and i realize it makes no sense to describe) and entered this completely cluttered from floor to ceiling room.
there were two tables. one in the front and one behind it. there was an old guy in the table in the back and a younger guy who looked like wil wheaton and was called "wesley shrae" in the front desk. he had this weird hat on, one that was equipped with a light and a magnifying glass. he reminded me of someone out of a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film. actually now that i think about it, the whole mood was more city of lost children than hp3.
he was mumbling to me about taking a seat and i tried to figure out where, but there were no other chairs. i also tried to hand him the paperwork, that's when he looked up at me (with his eyes all giant style thanks to the magnifying glass) and motioned for me to set them next to the door.
so i sat them down and tried to figure out what to do next. behind him (between him and the other desk actually) was this book shelf filled with spinnaker games (remember hey diddle diddle, facemaker or the AMAZING story machine??). that's when i realized that this wil-wheaton look-alike and this old guy were the creators of those games.
also then i realized that my new job was to create new spinnaker games. that's when i got a little upset. spinnaker didn't create new games. i had just got put into a dead department. i decided i wasn't going to let that stop me. and i decided i had better get my paperwork done. so i picked it up and tried to hand it to mr. wesley shrae (who had said nothing to me and had gone back to working on whatever it was he was working on) when he looked at his watch and exclaimed "DAMN. i'm going to be late for jury duty!" and then he left.
the old guy told me to have a seat.
so i sat down in wil/wesley (also yes i know his name was wesley on star trek, but where the shrae comes from or the spinnaker stuff, i have no idea) seat.
and then i woke up.
or the dream changed or something.
sidenote: that story machine review is really fantastic. if you know what story machine is, you should read this article.
