Silly Oscar Predictions

February 26, 2010-February 27, 2010 – I was making my Oscar picks for the Courier Times Oscar contest.  There was a choice of ten at the top before each of the main categories.  I checked The Hurt Locker before I saw that this category was “Your Silly Oscar Pick.”  I didn’t know what that was supposed to mean, so I just played it safe and stuck with The Hurt Locker.  Then I went straight ahead to checking off my picks for the eight big categories.  I knew exactly what I was picking in those categories, so I was going to check them off really quickly.  But when I got to Jeff Bridges for Best Actor, I felt incredibly tired and could barely move my pen.  I managed to get through the rest of the big eight, still feeling tired.  I had to stop and think at this moment because I wasn’t sure how I was going to pick for the other categories.

New Age Basketball

October 9, 2009-October 10, 2009 – I was watching a series of basketball games. Actually, they might not have been games, just several groups of people playing basketball in some way.  It might have been part of a movie.  I think there were five pairs of people in a competition.  They were going on to the last part of the competition, but the finishing order was already a foregone conclusion.  The younger member of the last pair went off by himself.  I was now this person.  I was shooting hoops in this area that resembled the entranceway behind Newman Towers.  I threw up a wild three-point set shot, and it went in!  I was really making things happen today.  There was a multicolored, stringy creature or construction on the court now.  I was trying to avoid it.  It might have been a dog.  Then I started drifting away.  Cars were now making their way into the area.

March 30, 2009-March 31, 2009 – I was watching an episode of Hannah Montana.  It seemed to be informed by the plot of Hannah Montana The Movie.  Billy Ray Cyrus had taken Miley back to Tennessee.  They were shopping at a grocery store.  Lily had tracked them down and was at the store with them.  Lily and Miley were walking around together, while Billy Ray was off by himself.  Miley was trying to figure out how to do something, and Lily was trying to help her.  As they walked to the front of the store, the conversation was getting really heated.  Lily stopped Miley, told her two things that she had to do (and possibly she said one thing before that), and then she told her that she was pregnant.  Then she stormed out of the store.  Miley went after her, but Lily came right back in anyway.  Miley asked Lily who the father was, but Lily told her that she wasn’t actually pregnant and that she had only said that to get her attention.  Then they went outside, walking through the big parking lot towards the street.  Their conversation was still heated.  There was a van driving through.  Billy Ray had just come out of the store and was running after the girls.  Something was off.

Football: A Game of Inches

June 25, 2008-June 26, 2008 – I was watching something about Thanksgiving football games.  There was a clip of the Cowboys recovering a kickoff in the end zone for a touchdown.  This was the second time that they had done that in this game.  Right after the score, someone on the other team took a cheap punch at one of the Cowboys.  This led to fighting and ejections, I think.  Then there was a clip in which a 49er caught a kickoff in front of the end zone and then threw the ball to the 50-yard line, where one of his teammates caught it and then started running in the direction of where the ball had been thrown from.  I wondered why the guy who caught it risked throwing it all the way to the middle of the field when he was so close to the end zone that his team scored in.  Later, Tony Romo was chasing someone from the other tream through the locker room naked, still in response to the punch during the game.

May 18, 2007-May 19, 2007 – I was playing in a football game.  Adam Sandler and I tackled someone on the other team.  After the player was down, Adam grabbed the ball and ran it back to the end zone.  I caught up to him; patting him on the back, I said, “Okay, calm down, buddy.”  He was laughing like an idiot.

September 24, 2006-September 25, 2006 – I was watching How to Eat Fried Worms, and a lot of crazy stuff was going on.  I thought, then, that maybe this movie was better than I had thought.
