I had a dream last night that I was walking to the grocery store to pick up a few items for dinner, when I saw the one and only Mr. Michael Jackson. He had his swine flu prevention mask on with a black hat, and he was completely alone. I went up to him and said, "Hey you're Michael Jackson", and he asked how I recognized him and I responded by saying I was his number one fan. After that he asked me if I wanted to walk with him to the store ,and I said hell yes. I asked him if he was nervous about his upcoming London concert, and I asked him if he would consider letting me guide his career, and he laughed at me. And then I woke up. I swear I thought that that dream was real, and when I woke up and realized it wasn't, I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach. Although I'm not that naive to realize how creepy it is in this day and age, to be dreaming about Michael Jackson...

Five minutes after I woke up, I came out into the living room, got myself some water, and I turned on the television, and I saw the video you see posted below. It just happens to be one of my favorite songs from the 80s. Perhaps this will be my lucky day..

Just so you know this video kicked off my downloading tons of Sting/Police music this weekend. "Wrapped Around Your Finger" was my jam. Video was tight too.

Ok, so now you had to bring Stang into my thoughts today. If I hadn't married my current husband, I'd be a Sting stalker.

BWA HA AHA HA!!!!!!

Every Breath You Take... Love it!

I wanted to respond to the dream you had with MJ. You asked if you could manage his career, and he laughed.

Here are the lyircs to "Fortress Around your Heart"

FORTRESS AROUND YOUR HEART

Under the ruins of a walled city
Crumbling towers and beams of yellow light
No flags of truce, no cries of pity
The siege guns had been pounding all through the night
It took a day to build the city
We walked through its streets in the afternoon
As I returned across the fields Id known
I recognized the walls that I once made
I had to stop in my tracks for fear
Of walking on the mines Id laid

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire

Then I went off to fight some battle
That Id invented inside my head
Away so long for years and years
You probably thought or even wished that I was dead
While the armies are all sleeping
Beneath the tattered flag wed made
I had to stop in my track for fear
Of walking on the mines Id laid

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire

This prison has now become your home
A sentence you seem prepared to pay
It took a day to build the city
We walked through its streets in the afternoon
As I returned across the fields where Id once played
I had to stop in my tracks for fear
Of walking on the mines Id laid

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire


Looks like the meaning of of your dream could be in the song.

Arlene,
You know I never bothered to tie the song and the dream together like that..that's an interesting take on it
