Dream Journal #3

This one was clearly inspired by reading the George Plimpton "oral biography" George, Being George (which, by the way, is marvelous, as George himself might have put it):

Last night, I dreamed that I was watching a U.S. Open tennis match, on TV, in a shopping mall-like environment, with Norman Mailer. I think the match involved either Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, or maybe both. I was a little intimidated by Mailer's presence. I don't remember him saying much, but he definitely seemed to be following the match closely.

Coincidentally, the Village Voice reprinted this odd Norman Mailer-related story from their archives today. I never knew he was interested in architecture and city planning.
