my life as a movie

okay for a few years i have been stewing this idea-movies totally suck you in- life is never that exciting- i think it would be fun to see my life as a movie-- I mean your life only totally glammed and funnied up-- total hollywood style (bollywood style would be funny too) that would mean you'd only be shown from good angles, with good lighting, and always scenic shots-- someone to do your hair and make-up, and dress you (or better yet- a hotter version of you- non post baby baggage) you would pause purposefullt and deliver ever line emphatically, and of course dragging out repressed passion, and always capturing those longing "looks" you are exchanging with your leading man. also you could take out the lame stuff- the parts that are never in movies like doing laundry, wheeling the trash to the curb, vacuuming your car, shaving your legs, stocking food storage shelves, doing returns at Target.

Also real life moments would be much more captivating if you had a life soundtrack-- yes someone carrying around a cd player and cueing up the totally perfect song at the totally perfect moment--(like the ultimate mix tape) that fades in and out at the ideal moments like kissing scenes. I mean leave it to hollywood- "i am sure that welcome home honey, take the baby before i burn dinner" could be made sexy (of course i'll be wearing my glam apron and be decked and coiffed- not in my pajamas with unbrushed hair- there must be the sauteeing of fresh vegtables- in my pottery barned, flower gardened tree lined street house)

So if i had to pick...I would like my movie life to be done in a true jane austen style (of course i play the beautiful, independent, idealistic yet romantic heroine)

The sitcom of my life i would have to say either Seinfeldian or Officesque (i have to say my creative brain could pull of some scrubs-like broad farce montages)

so hollywood- bring it on-- and any takers to be my soundtrack guy

and hey all you faithful blog readers, I'll send you tickets for opening night or get you a cameo-- only promise me the same!

What are you talking about? My life IS that glamorous ;). "Pottery Barned" That's going to be my new term.

I'm a really good craft services person. I'll provide the food and bring you water bottles, which you can then throw at me if you feel the need.

Your comment about the historical action figures the other day was a big highlight. I was laughing so hard. Thanks for that. I'll have to find those.

In a Perfect World we would say everything in song. My little brother and I do that when we are together. It is very mature and EVERYONE around us just LOVES us for it.
