Dream 1

I am not sure if my brother CC was in the second dream or not, and so I will separate this dream from the other dreams from last night.

All that I can remember of this dream is that my brother CC was in it, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that it was maybe late afternoon or early evening and I was sitting/riding in the back seat of a car, and my dad and my brother GC were in the front seat but I can not remember which of them was driving the car.

I assume that we had just left somewhere but I can not remember, and I remember taking off my clothes so that I could maybe change clothes or something but I can not remember.

I was naked with my underwear sitting on top of my lap when suddenly I noticed some police cars moving suspiciously ahead of us, from the sides of us, and from behind us like they were about to box us in and stop us.

I was naked so I tried to carefully and slowly put my clothes back on before they arrest us or something, the police cars turned on their lights and sirens, and then they took defensive positions behind their cars with their weapons ready.

I heard them tell us to stop over a loudspeaker so we stopped the car and they yelled some other commands, at this point I had my underwear on, and I was trying to slowly and carefully put my other clothes before they could notice.

I had to be careful to avoid appearing suspicious and to avoid appearing to be a threat, but I also needed to hurry before they realized that I was not fully dressed so I was in a difficult situation.

I had no idea why the police were stopping us like this, it seemed very serious and the police were on edge, and so I assumed that it was something serious and that they stopped us by mistake.

I also hoped that it was not a misunderstanding involving some people we possibly met earlier in the dream during the parts of the dream that I can not remember, but I woke up.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it was in a three-way split screen view at first showing what three different people were doing at the same time and these three people were: my brother GC, my male coworker Mr. J who works in the IT Department at The BP Library, and myself/me.

We each were doing something different in three different locations, but we were all connected by a mobile phone call so we were all talking to each other.

My brother GC was working alone at a fictional job in a small room sitting at a desk, I can not remember what I was doing or where I was, and Mr. J was probably working on some computers while at a different job (maybe the LA business that he owns).

I was able to see what each of us were doing as we talked on our mobile phones and worked/whatever, and at some point we ended up in the same location so the split screen probably disappeared at this point because it was no longer needed.

We obviously no longer needed our mobile phones to communicate at this point, and we started talking to each other in person as I woke up.

Amélie (Le Fabuleux Destin D’Amélie Poulain)

What is it?

The 2001 French romantic comedy film Le Fabuleux Destin D’Amélie Poulain (Amélie) which was directed by the director Jean-Pierre Jeunet and stars the actress Audrey Tautou (Audrey Justine Tautou) as the main character Amélie Poulain:

Amélie (2001) Official Trailer 1 – Audrey Tautou Movie

What is it about?

One day a shy, introverted, kind, and imaginative woman living in Paris, France, finds some old items from many years hidden in her apartment that belonged to someone who used to live in her apartment.

She decides to track down the owner of the items and return them to this person.

This inspires her to go around helping people in unique ways, and along the way she finds a man who(m) she falls in love with.

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

One woman decides to change the world by changing the lives of the people she knows in this charming and romantic comic fantasy from director Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Amelie (Audrey Tautou) is a young woman who had a decidedly unusual childhood; misdiagnosed with an unusual heart condition, Amelie didn’t attend school with other children, but spent most of her time in her room, where she developed a keen imagination and an active fantasy life.

Her mother Amandine (Lorella Cravotta) died in a freak accident when Amelie was eight, and her father Raphael (Rufus) had limited contact with her, since his presence seemed to throw her heart into high gear.

Despite all this, Amelie has grown into a healthy and beautiful young woman who works in a café and has a whimsical, romantic nature.

When Princess Diana dies in a car wreck in the summer of 1997, Amelie is reminded that life can be fleeting, and she decides it’s time for her to intervene in the lives of those around her, hoping to bring a bit of happiness to her neighbors and the regulars at the café.

Amelie starts by bringing together two lonely people – Georgette (Isabelle Nanty), a tobacconist with a severe case of hypochondria, and Joseph (Dominique Pinon), an especially ill-tempered customer.

When Amelie finds a box of old toys in her apartment, she returns them to their former owner, Mr. Bretodeau (Maurice Benichou), sending him on a reverie of childhood.

Amelie befriends Dufayel (Serge Merlin), an elderly artist living nearby whose bones are so brittle, thanks to a rare disease, that everything in his flat must be padded for his protection.

And Amelie decides someone has to step into the life of Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz), a lonely adult video store clerk and part-time carnival spook-show ghost who collects pictures left behind at photo booths around Paris.

Le Fabuleux Destin D’Amelie Poulain received unusually enthusiastic advance reviews prior to its French premiere in the spring of 2001, and was well received at a special free screening at that year’s Cannes Film Festival.

A Man Needs To Borrow Some Gloves

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is maybe something about a woman and/or some women, I remember an out of shape maybe somewhat overweight woman with brownish-color skin, and something about me and maybe how my body is starting to get a bit more muscular since slightly increasing my strength training.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.


My Wife Is An Actress (Ma Femme Est Une Actrice)

What Is It?

The 2001 French romantic comedy-drama movie Ma Femme Est Une Actrice (My Wife Is An Actress), which was directed by the director / actor Yvan Attal (who also starred in the film), and starred the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg (Charlotte Lucy Gainsbourg) & the actor Terence Stamp (Terence Henry Stamp).

Ma femme est une actrice (2001) bande annonce

What Is It About?

It is about a man with a wife who is a famous actress.

One day he suspects that maybe something is going on between his wife and an actor who(m) she is working with on a film and / or he just becomes jealous.

This situation starts to strain their marriage, so this movie focuses on what marriage life can be like between a famous person and their non-famous spouse.

Here is how The IMDb describes this movie:

A “normal” guy who is married to a hot actress gets worried that she is involved with her costar.

This worry turns into jealousy and causes problems in their relationship.

This is a story about trust and a comedy about the actions between men and women.

Paris can boast a population of 2,125,246. Of these 1,153,000 are women and 10,000 are actresses.

Yvan, a young sports writer, is married to one who is very well known – Charlotte.

They try to live a normal life, but her fame makes it difficult – autograph hunters interrupt their dinners, cops about to serve traffic summonses let them off with a warning and a smile when they recognize her, and impossible-to-get restaurant reservations magically appear when Charlotte makes the calls instead of Yvan.

All this threatens and challenges his male ego, but Yvan is able to take her stardom in stride.

Until, that is, a man at a bar asks him if he gets jealous watching his wife make love in the nude to another man on screen.

It has never seriously bothered him before, but the stranger sows the first seed of doubt in his head…

Charlotte Gainsbourg talks about “My Wife Is An Actress”

Why Do You Like It?

I saw this film about a year ago or longer, so unfortunately I am not exactly sure how I felt about it.

I assume that it was okay, I assume that what I liked about the film is the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg; and that the film showed what life can be like for a famous person and their non-famous spouse and some of their struggles.

Why Would Someone Else Like It?

I think that other people will like it because of how the film shows what marriage life can be like for a famous person and their non-famous spouse.

Which gives the viewer a glimpse into what it might be like to be in a marriage like that.

My Thoughts

I had this film on my computer for many years until I finally watched it a year ago or more.

Before I could watch it, I had to download new subtitles for it again after I lost the original subtitles.

So it was good that I finally watched it, there are so many films that I have that I have not watched yet.

I just can not remember much about this film now or how I felt about it, and so maybe it was somewhat of a forgettable but okay film.

A Man Needs Help With The Library Copy Machine

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it took place inside a house-like building, and someone was searching for something but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place at The BP Library where I work as a shelver, and I was working on my shelver job.

As I was walking back to the shelving room, a somewhat older male patron with whitish-color skin with somewhat wild/unkempt white/gray hair approached me, and he wanted help using the copy machine/printer/scanner so I walked over to try to help him even though I have only been shown how to scan to email.

The man had some papers in his hands, some of them possibly involved professional wrestling, and the man wanted me to show him how to make a copy of one or two pages so I showed him after I figured it out.

He then wanted me to show him how to scan some of the documents as files, and so I showed him how to do this once I figured it out.

After that he wanted me to show him how to scan to email, and so I showed him how to do this because I already knew how to do that.

Finally I asked him if he needed help with anything else, but I can not remember what his response was before I woke up.

The end,

-John Jr
