I was thinking.....

I was thinking that if I accomplish everything that I want to, that someday, somebody might want to make a movie about me. I see the unlikelihood of this, but considering some of this summer's sequels, they could do worse. Besides, I think it will do very well in Europe.

So with this in mind, I was thinking of modifying some of my goals. I think I need to get arrested at least once, preferably for protesting. Always better to go down swinging.... it builds a much better plot. Many famous people have kept journals. That might be a good idea. I could write ideas for camera angles in the margins.

I am concerned about who they get to play me. Imagine if you will, a personality that resembles Madeline Kahn's with a smattering of Monty Python and Second City. Bundle it up and shove it into the body of Kathy Bates. Then give her about seven times the amount of hair (on her head!), make sure it's unkempt and then you pretty well have a package that would resemble me. I have little doubt that Angelina Jolie will fight for the part ... let the chips fall where they may!

Well, the good news is that I have plenty of causes. One of course is fighting our way back from the ten to thirty year "tipping point" for the planet's environmental recovery. I am a firm believer in solar cars. I'm still trying to find someone to help me make one. I want to put the mustang back on it's range and then stand tall, look big oil, big lumber and big cattlemen in the eye and flip 'em a bird! I want to develop a program where indigenous peoples/economies make their livelihood by replanting the rain forests in their area and maintain them sponsored by other people from around the world ... like save the children but for tree planters. Last but not least, I want to learn to make a really good foccacia.

So, I have a question for you, as you giggle away at an old broad who is struggling to have a movie worthy life... why, oh why, are you struggling so hard to have a life that isn't movie worthy? It's the only story that you are ever going to get to live. Make it a good one.
