Sky-diving and Snorkeling

You Should Be a Film Writer

You don’t just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.
You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.
Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.
And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!

Hmm, I’ve certainly thought about being a screenwriter.  I would try and write an adaptation of Troilus and Criseyde.  I really can’t believe no one else has done that.  It’s an amazing, fabulous, multi-layered story.  And it’s Chaucer, so what’s not to love?

In other news, there’s apparently a website out there that urges people to vote for the worst singer on American Idol!  Right now they’re backing Kevin, and I can’t say I blame them.  They started in season 3 and backed Jasmine Trias, who made it to the top 4, and they backed that awful, creepy Scott Savol last year, which I think actually explains why he made it as far as he did.  I can’t say I completely agree with what they’re doing because I don’t want it to ruin the chances of Mandisa or Chris, but it is really funny. 

Today on Ellen there was a woman in the audience who was in her fifties and had gotten a tattoo five years ago because she had made a list of things she wanted to do or accomplish in her life, and that was one of them, so she finally took the plunge.  It got me thinking about what I want to do before I die, so here’s a preliminary list:

1.  Ride in a hot air balloon.
2.  Go sky-diving.  (I really want to do this, but I’d much rather do it with someone else than go alone!)
3.  Visit Sea World.
4.  Go snorkeling in Australia.
5.  Learn how to knit.
6.  Get something published.
7.  Visit all 50 states.  (My trip this summer across country should knock out several of them!)
8.  Visit Italy. (I’d love to have my honeymoon in Florence or Rome, but we’ll see.)
9.  Be in two places at once.  (Haha, just kidding. Anyone remember what movie that’s from?)
10. Live overseas.

That should keep me busy for a few years, eh?  What would be on your list?

EDIT:  Today’s entry from my 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said calendar:  “Suave Naturals Body Scrub Costs Less Than More Expensive Brands” (from an add for Suave).  I guess it better cost less, since they have idiots writing their ads!  :laughing:

Tell me your thoughts! I'd love to read them.
