steve martin and dan akroyd

i have some crazy dreams.
i don't have dreams with celebs usually but can tell you everyone of them that has graced my dreams for the most part. here are a few of my favs.

it all started with matthew broderick (as ferris bueller of course) in high school. we were best friends and causing a ruckus in the library actually... yah i know its like breakfast club meets ferris bueller...but it was awesome we were pushing the book shelves over.

then i remember in college i dreamt i met conan o'brien.
(a dream that will someday come true)
i was trying to get him to come and speak to students at uno...he didn't want to so i started stocking him somewhat...weird i know.

then there was daniel meade from ugly betty.
i dont really remember much about this dream- but i was totally nerding out about how much i loved ugly betty.

then comes brett favre a few weeks ago- yah i know- i hate football. we were in japan and i was getting my photo with him his brother...if he even has one. i think in my dream i thought he was brett favre but he might have been payton manning and his brother...who the heck knows. but anyways i was saying how weird it was to meet them and how jealous joel was going to be...but totally weird.

ok so a few nights ago i had a dream i was at a bar and saw steve martin and dan akroyd hanging out. i asked if i could have a photo with steve (no idea why i didnt have dan in it) and started up a conversation. he was in omaha shooting an ad for nike he said. i said cool- i work for the red cross how would you feel about doing a psa for us? yada yada yada. i also asked him about if jason schwartzman is hilarious in person (since they were in shopgirl together and i heart jason schwartzman)
anyways steve was awesome and very handsome. linsey took our photo together...i wish i really had it too.

who knows maybe someday i will have the pleasure to meet steve outside of dream world...

apple introduced the new macbook air today...among some other awesome things...

stinkin' awesome...

you gotta love those brits.

sweeney todd

sunday night some london friends, jimmy and katie (and london visitor someday linsey) went to see sweeney todd
it was very bloody...but what else would you expect from the demon barber of fleet street?
i dont think i will be wanting a meat pie anytime soon either.
...but other than that it was a good movie.

go mavs girls night out

saturday night linsey, kathy and i went out to get some hot dogs, nachos and beers...and support the uno maverick hockey team.
it was a good ol' time.

one of the funniest movies i have seen in a real long time. the writer, diablo cody, is amazing! i loved every single time juno, ellen page, opened her little prego smart allec mouth. check out this rad story from cnn about the writer- who happens to be a university of iowa media studies grad, past copywriter turned stripper in mn (she blogged about it for the year i guess) crazy stuff.

anyways- go see the movie if you need a good laugh.
it is clever and refreshing!

the luckiest

this one goes out to my husband.
i am the luckiest.
thanks for taking good care of me when i am a sick hot mess disaster.

...this song always reminds me of joel-and i love every note of it.
thanks for the great song ben.

I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

What if I'd been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?

And in a white sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you

Next door there's an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know we belong
That I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest
