walking down a cold semi snowy ally in eugene (woke up wit snow on the ground in the waking world too) and i find a computer, and a wallet, that i take the money out of and throw in the gutter. Cool I think, looking around to make sure its not anybodys close. I duck into a coffee shop/nerd gaming place to check it out. The screen is busted off the bottom of the laptop but when i put the together it starts working again. My Brother shows up and we start talking about playing magic cards, like we used to do when we were kids. I say that he can have the rest of mine, but i need to get them from my house. At the table next to us i hear a man in a business suit talking about hiring breakdancers, so i give him my card. He says "you work at salmon st?, with rocket one?" I reply yes, but dont want to step on the toes of the person he is talking to so me and brother go to my car and leave.
There is tons of traffic on the way up the hill. On the side of the road some kids are looking through a box, and are super stoked that they found some free porn that fell off a truck. We keep driving, but super slow due to the traffic, its starting to annoy me, so I bust a move into the other lane and pass all these sucker up. On the way we drive through a army testing site with massive communications base attached, there are lots of strange buildings with anteneas and dishes attached. I kind of creeps me out not knowing what they are doing there. We get to the top of a moutain/hill with a nice veiw. Its Austins B-day and we are celebrating by hanging out by a fire talking. Just then someone mentions that the radiation might get to us and that we should probably put on our protective suits, but we are one short and one of the other people says they dont need one and can makeshift something. Looking out over the cliff and hillside we see the explosions start, tons of them, its a sea of black mushroom clouds.
We make a escape on a raft down a river, but now im a middle aged man with glasses and the rest of the people on the raft are my wife and kids. Im scared, but the kids are laughing like we were on a joy ride, as we dodge mines in the river that the kids call balloons.
Im myself again, back in my car, going back to the gaming/coffee shop to play magic cards with my brother. Once we get back I get the feeling that we are being hunted, by spys. We start to play magic, all my cards are dragons, but the feeling of being hunted is still there. Then i see him in the corner, the spy. My brother is gone now and i make an escape into the mall that is attached to the gaming shop. I keep trying to make it to my car, but cant find it, so i continue into down town eugene. There is a couple of streets were the top is completely covered by cement building. Thats pretty smart for a place that rains so much i think, that way people have a place to hangout downtown where they dont get wet. Ducking to the left towards downtown leads me to an intricately built and carved passage. The place is beautiful, with dangling pieces of shining cement or crystal all over and large arch ceilings, leading to a fountain with shopping center around it, all underground. It was partially 5th st. market, but bigger and with amazing architecture.
Breezing past a yoga class, i make it to the outside. "I can just walk down the tracks to get back to my car" I think to myself, but as soon as i start towards the tracks i notice a group of teenagers standing on the corner, and a cop on the tracks. They must of had the same idea. Oh well, I guess i go back through the passageways. Once on the covered street i stop to ask someone if the streets had always been like that (or am i dreaming i thought to my self), he looked at me like I was dumb and continued on with his conversation. I must be dreaming, but i wonder if they are like that also? I couldnt figure it out so i continued on to the mall where my car was parked. The spy was still there and chased me, shooting at me with some kind of dart bullets.
Finding my car in the parking garrage below the coffee/gaming place, I made my escape. I find myself not in my car anymore but running down the side of a hi-way on the outskirts of town, with alder trees all around and a river on one side. "Can i get a ride" I ask some old man, who lets me into his car pulling a boat. Everyone is hauling boats, but it doesnt really matter to me, all that matters is getting away. Who ever is chasing me shoots the driver so i bounce out of the car and start making my way up a ditch through the alder trees. The adrenaline is rushing, im scared, and flustered. Then i think "wait this is a dream, I dont really have to be overwhelmed, he cant really hurt me" but then i think "but the if i let my adrenaline go down it wont be as exciting" He shoots me with a dart. Shit, im probably poisoned now, and start expecting my energy to go down as the poison kicks in, but it doesnt and im fine. Weird i think, wonder what the point of the dart was? Then there are some ninja spy girls who shoot grapling hooks across the river and got me.
