Dream 677

'Celebrity Christmas'
Date: 15 August 2016
Time: 04:00 - 09:00 (I woke up from this dream due to my cleaner entering my room) 
Type of dream: Vivid dream
Dream recall: Strong recall

I had 2 very vivid and complex dreams, because I had a period of waking, during which I decided to get out of bed. I then realised that I was still tired and decided to get another 1.5 hours of sleep, so in effect, this was a Wake-Back-to-Bed with very successful results. This is the first dream.

This dream is part of my Dream Incubation Experiment - Eminem / Marshall Mathers III Dream - click HERE (post will open in a new window) to see the details of this Dream Incubation Experiment, including the methodology and results of previous Dream Incubation Experiments.

Scene 1: A Domestic Interior (My Home in the Dream)  - Night
It was Christmas Eve  and I was with my Mum, about to prepare the food for the celebration on Christmas Day. I was aware that special guests to our home would include Jay-Z, Beyonce and Blue Ivy Carter and Kanye West, Kim Kardashian-West and their children, North and Saint West. I was very excited at the prospect of hanging out with these famous, inspirational people who I seemed to know on a friendship level. My Mum asked if we had all the food we needed for the Christmas Day dinner. 

I looked and realised that we didn't have any food in the house. It was late and I wondered if it would be possible to go last minute food shopping. I must have been in my home in Norwich, because my first thought was whether the 24-hour Tescos (a 10-minute walk away) would be open for me to buy chickens and vegetables to make a roast dinner. I was worried it would be shut as it was Christmas Eve, and quite late at night. I looked in my fridge and saw that I had 1 small chicken and some mashed potato. I wondered if there was enough mashed potato for 8 people (even though, there would in fact be 9 people there based on the number of dream characters expected to be eating). The mashed potato was in a small ceramic dish and I realised quickly that there was definitely not enough - it was only about 2 modest portions. I started panicking. 

I then looked again, and my kitchen was now fully stocked with all the food I needed to make a feast. It seemed like this was a combination of my own food stores and a sort of shop, which I could use to purchase anything extra. I knew I had some fresh herbs, but wanted to get some more, as well as an extra chicken or 2 and more variety of vegetables. I saw a shelf of fresh herbs and a stack of chickens, wrapped in clear plastic. I tried to find the biggest chicken for the best price and picked up more herbs. I also got a range of fresh vegetables, and was satisfied that I could make a great feast. 

My Mum then said: 'Do you think Beyonce will mind being at the same dinner party as Kim, because they've been arguing...?' I dismissed this, saying Beyonce would not want to create a scene and would be polite to Kim, and Kim wouldn't try to provoke her on Christmas Day. 

I then was worried that I hadn't bought any peas. I looked in the freezer and saw half a bag of peas. I wondered if this was enough, but when I looked in the next drawer down, saw my Mum had bought another bag of peas, so there were plenty.

The celebrity guests arrived. I was trying to chat to the kids. We were heading towards my kitchen - the one in my current, temporary accommodation. While in the doorway I asked Beyonce: 'Does Blue have a middle name?' I then realised how stupid this question was, and added: 'I mean, I know she is Blue Ivy, but does she have another middle name?' to which Beyonce replied 'No'. 

I cannot recall anything else about this dream, as I was woken up by a knock on my door and the door being opened by my cleaner. 

Extra Information: 
None of note

Recurrent Dream Themes: 

  • My Mum as a dream character

  • I was having some A-list celebrities over for Christmas dinner
  • My kitchen was also a 'shop'

Day Residue: 
  • I often have to walk down to the Tescos because my local shop is either closed or isn't stocking the right ingredients for what I want to cook
  • The day before this dream I had been eating mashed potato
  • A few days before this dream, my housemate LD2 had been opening the freezer and checking to see if the compartments were in use
  • A few days before this dream, I had been wondering if I needed to buy peas for a meal I was preparing
  • A few days before this dream I had been reading an article about how Kim Kardashian had been anxious about dancing with Beyonce. I read a separate online article about how Beyonce really dislikes Kim
  • The day before this video I had seen an image of Danielle Harold ('Lola Pearce' in Eastenders) in a Christmas scene, holding her online daughter, 'Lexi'

Waking Reactions: 
This dream did not reference my Dream Incubation Experiment or Eminem, even though it did feature 2 very famous hip hop artists/rappers who have worked with Eminem. This was a very interesting and exciting dream for me, because I felt really overjoyed to be hosting a Christmas party with some of my favourite celebrities attending. I may have forgotten some aspects of this dream, although I am not sure. If I recall anything else, I will recall it below.
