|10:09 am - How did I ever get here?|
Strange dream this morning. It was around 4:something this morning that I went back to sleep.
In my dream MacroMan was standing at the foot of my bed talking about stuff he wanted to see in the documentation. I got a piece of paper near my bed and noted with some amusement that there were some formulas scribbled on it (on the same topic!) from the last time he stopped by with some additions.
I debated on whether I should introduce him to hoppie, but hoppie was sleeping so peacefully, I decided not to wake him for that.
I'm not sure what happened after that, but I was shortly in a meeting with DaBoss and three other people who don't actually read what I write, but are nominally part of our department. DaBoss hated everything I'd done with my project and was discussing the merits of switching the template from a portrait to a landscape with navigation buttons on the tops of each page because there were so many charts and graphs.
Well, it didn't make any sense to me to change it, and I said so. I said it was a pointless endeavor at this late date of the project and she explained to me that it was VERY IMPORTANT! and it should have been done from the start because it was obvious from the format it would require this template, and didn't Nell (one of the other people in the room) agree? One of the other people snuck out of the room somewhere around this point, but DaBoss was on such a tear she didn't even notice. I can't remember what Nell said, except she agreed that the template was wrong.
Then I was convinced I needed a new job, so I was going to apply for a company in the same building as the company I used to work for. I was wandering up and down between floors, because I thought they were on the 10th floor, but then that turned out to be, not the company I was looking for, but a company I applied for a job with earlier. The stairs had a scary, freaky construction. There was one step up, then a half step down, then a small landing at the original level, then another half step up, and another, and then two normal steps, and then the stairwell turned to the left and there was about 5-10 normal steps, followed by a spiral staircase like step as the stairwell took enough half turn. On that step, which was both a curved step and a landing, there were some tables and chairs. Then another 5-10 steps up and that was the next level (the 10th floor of the building) and I landed about where the steps started. On the other side of the stairwell, over the landing with the tables were more tables and some vending machines, obviously a sort of mini lunching area.
Since I was by now obviously in the wrong place, I took the elevator down to the lobby to check to see what floor I should have been in. The lobby was huge, but I went past all the donor plaques and fountains and things to the hallway where the directory was. The directory had a different plaque for each floor, but there was a Young Israel congregation on the 3rd and 4th floors and they had a huge display of things on sale in the hallway. I was reading the writing on a teffilin bag, when a guy came up and started talking to me, asking me if I was affiliated with the congregation, etc. I explained that I wasn't and he tried to get me interested in joining and he seemed like a very nice guy. Then I woke up.
I have so much I want to say, but I'm not ready yet.

Are you sure that the second dream wasn't a memory?
Oh my gosh, that second dream gave me the "willies", it seems like something that could or did or would happen in one of the Da Boss staff meetings. You're freaking me out, man~!
As for the others, (trans-channeling my sister the dream interpreter), the first one means that you like/trust MacroMan enough to let him into your personal life. (I mean what is more personal than your bedroom!!! Okay, maybe your purse, would be number one. Oh wait, yeah your palm pilot would be number one, then your purse, but I would put your bedroom at strong third.)
The third dream means a couple of thing:
1.That you really, really hated your last job
2.That you are afraid if you leave your current job, you'll end up back at an evil job like the evil job before this one.
3. Your subconscious says if you stay true to yourself and not worry/try so hard, you will be "wanted" by another company. A company that is very much like yourself.
Re: Are you sure that the second dream wasn't a memory?
It felt kinda real like that, especially on the heels of her resubmitting the "Editor's Checklist" with a comment like, "I know some of you don't think this is important, but it's a P1, not a P3!"
I didn't really hate my first job, though. It was very much like my present job. WTF management with incredible coworkers. That's probably why I assume that's how jobs are supposed to be.
