Have I ever mentioned that I sometimes dream about celebrities? When I had braces I dreamed that Tom Cruise and I were talking about the braces experience. During my last pregnancy I dreamed I was engaged to Chris Parnell from "Saturday Night Live" and that he and I were going up to his parents' summer house in Martha's Vineyard. Well, last night I dreamed that I ran into Matt Damon on the street and we had a conversation about how my brother looks a lot like Matt.
My brother does actually look like Matt Damon (with kind of squinty eyes), especially in the scene in "Ocean's Eleven" when his character pickpockets that guy on the El. Except that my brother doesn't pickpocket people. It makes watching Matt Damon movies a little strange for me, to say the least. "The Talented Mr. Ripley" made me laugh until the end, when he murders people, at which point it freaked me out. (On a completely unrelated note, my FIL is a dead ringer for Robert Forster.) At any rate, in the dream, Matt was fascinated by the fact that my brother looks like him, which is how you know it was a dream.
Other notes on celebrities:
I saw the video for that new Jamie Foxx single the other day. I like Jamie Foxx, and I think he's truly talented (if you've never seen the comedy routine he does with the nursery rhymes set to slow jamz all I can say is "Bwahahahahahaha, and who knew he could sing and play piano like that?"), and I loved him on "Gold Digger" with Kanye West (who didn't?). But this new thing ("Unbelievable"? "Incredible"? "Unmemorable"? something like that) was jarring. It was like stepping back into 1992, complete with lyrics about sexing you up, and a tired old video with Jamie surrounded by disposable women hanging on his every note. Lame.
Can't wait to see the new Pierce Brosnan movie "The Matador." It combines two of my loves--Pierce and Mexico City. I may have been the only person in the world who saw and actually liked "The Tailor of Panama." I'm going to force El Grande to go see the new one with me in the next week.
I also can't wait to see the new Queen Latifah movie. It looks like it's going to be predictable and lame, but I just love Latifah. She could recite the lyrics to bad Jamie Foxx songs and I'd still love her.
That is all.
