Oscars for my Birthday? How Kind

After a fitful night of sleep the previous evening, I woke up today glowing and refreshed. In fact, I overslept. If my dreaming had been lucid I would have overslept even more. In my dream all of my friends had gathered to take me on a picnic of sorts which happened to coincide with Oscar nomination morning. Which was also my birthday. Somehow late January and June 6th were occurring on the same day but I'm not going to turn down a birthday party... or Oscar nomination morning!

If friends and Oscars weren't enough, the dream got sweeter: Michelle Pfeiffer was holding a press conference at the park. This could only mean one thing. Tears welled up in my eyes (in the dream, remember! I'm not that much of a sentimentalist) as I realized La Pfeiffer has snagged herself a surprise Oscar nod.


For what movie I don't know (though Dakota Fanning was with her suggesting that the dream was past tense and that I Am Sam was involved. But it felt more like What Lies Beneath). I wouldn't trade this dream for anything since I also spoke to her and she remembered me (presumably from another dream... but that one isn't fit to share). So there you go.

I hope your dreams last night were as goddess or trophy filled. Were they? Don't be shy.

I dreamt that I went to see Wall-E, except that in my dream it took place on a playground with a slide and a sandbox, and the movie was extremely boring.

Can't quite recall, though they weren't great. Interesting how sometimes you have no idea what the dreams were about, but you're sure of the feeling you had when you woke up.

I dreamt that Tina Fey had been cast in a Sarah Palin biopic. Hope Davis was Hillary Clinton ... I can't remember the rest of the cast. :-/

I dreamt that I had been asked to asked to cast August: Osage County for a local theater group (which is odd because I know nothing about casting) and I had chosen my high school debate coach to play Beverly Weston (a role for which she is perfect).

Oh, the typical recurring dream where I'm on a plane, but I never reach the destination before I wake up. Somehow I overslept, too. I think all my dreams are getting so repetitive that they've come to the point where they're all lucid. =)

Dreamt that my sister fed me and a small child frozen pizza and spaghetti while waiting to see THE LITTLE MERMAID on Broadway. We were lined up outside the theater.
