This week’s dream I find fascinating more because of the strange settings than because of the celebrity appearance. However, this particular male lead is obviously always welcome in my dreams.
I found myself in a strange escalator filled, marble floored lobby of sorts– like the “guts” of a mall, so to speak, but instead of being a long mall hallway lined by shops as far as the eye can see, this mall went straight up. There were floors upon floors of shops encircling this small area I will henceforth refer to as the ‘tube lobby.’
Anyway, there were all these girls milling about around me and I could tell it was definitely a fangirl situation from the snippets of conversations I could hear.
“It’s the guy from Batman!”
“Remember that summer movie he was in?”
“He’s here! In there! Signing books!”
I also heard Inception thrown around. In reality I could have probably deduced whom it was they were talking about but in my dream I was pretty clueless.
Always the curious cat in both dreams and reality, I made my way over to where the fangirls were lining up outside of a store to try to figure out this mystery. The store itself was a big Target meets Best Buy meets Barnes & Noble monstrosity that appeared to take up multiple floors. I walked up to a group of fangirls and asked, “Who are you here to see?” but no one answered me or even looked in my direction. So I went up to another group of girls, “Excuse me! What’s going on?” and the same thing happened– no answer.
All those people and not one could see me! What a horrible feeling!
Still curious and determined, I decided to go ahead and just get in line myself to figure out who this mystery man could be. However, when it was finally my turn to enter the store, I found I couldn’t. The threshold from where I stood in the tube lobby to where the fangirls were crowded around this person signing books inside the store was blocked by a pane of glass and there was no getting around it.
Next thing I know, I’m walking through a swamp neighborhood, sad and dejected. I don’t really know how I jumped from tube lobby to swamp neighborhood but it happened and apparently I also lived in said swamp neighborhood. I went up the steps of my swamp house, entered the front door into the living room and immediately took a seat on the sofa next to my roommate. I asked, “How was your day?” and he said, “It was great. I had a book signing and hundreds of girls showed up.”
I turn in awe to find my roommate, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, accomplished actor and apparently also accomplished author on the sofa next to me.
