I dreamt I made it

I had a bad dream last night. I dreamt that I was reading a Wikipedia article about me and it was full of errors.

When you have a Wikipedia entry, you know you’ve made it. Made it to where, well, that’s up to you.

‘We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness’.’

(movie quote)

Well, move over, marriage. For the successful and notorious, Wikipedia now offers a viable alternative witness to a life partner.

(This is a strange blog entry. I guess things I think about are like that.)

    Funny, because I was thinking about this (having witnesses to our lives, not Wikipedia) the other day.

    And the even funnier thing is that I was thinking about the exactly same movie in relation to it!
