My sleeping brain thrives on pop-culture fodder.

So I had a dream last night that Joan Allen and I were bestest friends and we cried in each others arms because she confessed to me she had anorexia and was checking herself into a clinic. I remember that the minute she uttered the word anorexia, I accidently made akward eye-contact with Tracey Gold, who was apparently in the room at the time, and I felt bad for her because her career would always be overshadowed by her eating disorder.

I'm pretty sure this whole dream was a crazy amalgam of having just seen The Bourne Supremacy and the whole Mary-Kate Olsen frenzy, but it's amazing how the sleeping brain works. For instance, why did I dream that scenario instead of having nightmares about the ritualistic teeth-filing practices I watched on National Geographic's Culture Shock just before bedtime?

Update: While creating the link above to Tracey Gold's resume, I noticed this entry in her filmography: Growing Pains II: Home Equity (2004) (filming). Everybody set your Tivo.

You were both crying in each others arms? Why would you cry? You cry at odd moments - in your dreams & real life (A Few Good Men).

Oh & I had read that they were making yet another Growing Pains movie. I've been on the edge of my seat ever since.

Um, we were crying because it was a traumatic experience for her, and as her best friend, I had empathy for her. Ever heard of empathy? You may want to look into it and get yourself some.

As for A Few Good Men, it's definitely lost its luster over the years. No longer worthy of Dan's tears.

Empathy? Don't got it; don't want it.

But I'm glad to hear you've gotten over your emotional overflow while watching A Few Good Men. I think you're really growing.
