The boss is on his way to New York, but he reports from the train that he had an unusual dream last night, in which a copy of Governor Chris Christie's private schedule for the next three weeks appeared to him. When he woke up, he scribbled down what he remembered:

Thursday, Sep. 22 (9 pm ET): At residence. Watch GOP presidential debate.

Saturday, Sep. 24-Sunday, Sep. 25: At residence. NO PUBLIC SCHEDULE. Private time with family and friends. Topic: Full and frank discussion of why CC may need to run. Phone calls scheduled with Mitch Daniels, Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush.

Tuesday, Sep. 27 (3 pm ET): California. Speech at Reagan library: "Liberty, Solvency, Responsibility."

Thursday, Sep. 29: Louisiana. Appearance with Gov. Bobby Jindal to raise money for Republican Victory Fund.

Saturday, Oct. 1-Sunday Oct. 2: At residence. NO PUBLIC SCHEDULE. Private time with family, friends and top advisors. Final decision on whether to run, and campaign structure.

Monday, October 10: New Jersey/Iowa. Announce candidacy in New Jersey; travel to Iowa to participate in Columbus Day festivities.

Tuesday, Oct. 11 (8pm ET): New Hampshire. Participate in Bloomberg Television/Washington Post/WBIN-TV presidential debate at Dartmouth College.

Perhaps the conversation that Kristol and Paul Gigot had about Christie on Fox News Sunday is what prompted this unusual dream.
