Last night, I had the weirdest dream about Robert Downy Jr. First I have to explain that when I dream about famous people, and I do quite often, it’s always in the context that we are hanging out as friends. There is never the feeling that the are unapproachable or they have a ‘star-status’. Usually we are having a conversation about something that you and I would talk about.

So in the dream, we are in what appears to be an apartment, he’s in his Iron Man suit growing impatient that I’m putting stuff up because the store is going to close soon and he wants to make a beer run. Yes, a beer run in his Iron Man suit...he’s was going to fly us there since he was in a hurry.

I know, weird. Right?

Want to know what is weirder? Going over my show prep this morning, I notice it’s his birthday today, he’s 48! I had absolutely no foreknowledge of this, so....

Happy birthday Robert/Tony/Iron Man! If you were here, I would buy you a beer!

Other people celebrating birthdays today I didn't dream about:

Jamie Lynn Spears, sister of Britney (22)

Heath Ledger, died in 2008, would have been 34 today

David Blaine, magician (40)

Jill Scott, R&B singer and actress (41)

Nancy McKeon, "Jo" on Facts of Life (47)

David Cross, comedian (49)

Craig T. Nelson, Coach actor (67)

Clive Davis, music exec (81)

Maya Anjelou, poet (85)

Have you ever dreamed about a famous person?
