No one will ever believe this, but I’ve been hanging out with Lady Gaga. She moved in down the street. Oh she’s not the Lady Gaga you’re used to seeing… she’s here for the peace and quiet during her down time, so she wears the typical A-Lister disguises. It doesn’t take much though really, because without all the makeup and costumes meant to shock, she doesn’t look much like her character at all. She almost fits in. Yesterday we took a long walk through the neighborhood, acted goofy, took selfies, and I find out that we’ve actually been Facebook friends for a few years now, but I never knew since she goes by another name on social media. How crazy and random is that?! Today she’s back at it though, and she texted me a photo of herself backstage in a crazy costume–business as usual–just before it was time to greet her massive screaming audience.
I know it’s hard to believe. It’s so exciting though. I think I’ll call her now to…
Wait… I hear my alarm… I mean I think that’s my alarm. Yup… a soft harp accompanied by an obnoxious buzz. I can’t wait to tell people I hung out all day with… Oh no! This is the morning I have to be up at 5:30am! That’s NOW! Am I NOT really neighborhood buds with Gaga? That’s unfortunate. But why Lady Gaga, anyway? She’s definitely not a topic that pops up in my daily discussions. What was I reading before bed? Oh yeah, Psychic Dreamwalking by Michelle Belanger.
Hey Gaga! You weren’t reading the same book last night, were you? I don’t suppose there’s a chance you remember me?
When I mentioned my crazy and random dream to Michelle Belanger on Twitter, she said “My dreaming life has never been the same since writing that. It was active before, but now even more so.” Good to know! I only started the book. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
