My dream life is a little unusual. When I have a really good, memorable dream, it's usually in the format of a movie that I'm in. An actual movie, I mean, with a beginning and end and, usually, a wrap party afterward.
Given that writing about women in entertainment is one of the things I do for a living, I'm not surprised that some of those women show up in my dream movies.

Betty has been showing up in dreams for years — long before she officially became cool. She never says much; she just hangs out. I asked my therapist once if her presence meant anything and we decided that she just makes me happy, so I like having her around. Actually, though, I think she might just be in my movie dream because of the after-party.
