Honestly people … am I a trendsetter or what?

I talk about my life as a movie … and POOF … it’s the Friday Five for that week. πŸ™‚

Hehe Trendsetter … Yeah Right. πŸ™‚

Enjoy !

1. If your life were a movie, what would the title be?

Star Wars – the gospels of amy … there would be 9 episodes, though episodes 7-9 might not get made if I don’t survive episode 6.

2. What songs would be on the soundtrack?

More than A Feeling, Boston
Feeling That Way, Journey
Come Sail Away, Styx

Time for Me To Fly, REO Speedway
Name, Goo Goo Dolls

3. Would it be a live-action film or animated? Why?

Live action. It’s just much easier to get into the movie and identify with the characters if it is live actioooon and I want to give everyone viewing someone with whom to identify.

Joe Hairdy – Johnny Depp
Amy-Wan Kenobi – Cameron Diaz

  1. i think i’m more of a
    “do or do not. no try there is”
    yoda-quote girl…
    you know,
    i’m indecisive,
    so that’s what i hear yoda telling me
    all the time…

  2. I talk about my life as a movie … and POOF … it’s the Friday Five for that week. πŸ™‚

    Well, the Wednesday Whine for this week was about irritating technical support, which you also covered.

    “Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future. “

  3. meanwhile,
    my despondancy friday
    might have had something to do with the scene
    i wrote thursday night…

    i’ve touched it up this morning,
    and i need to know if it’s crap or not…

    so i’m going to e-mail it,
    and i really need you to say something about it,
    and you can be honest,
    and i’m sorry that i get so high-maintenance
    sometimes…

  4. holy krap!
    you’re there now…

    seriously,
    that scene really happened,
    but not in the restroom…

    Dan had just interviewed for a job he really
    wanted, and he knew he wasn’t going to get it,
    and, well, i said that and he laughed SO HARD…

    and we’re still good friends…

  5. Holy krap Stacy !! LOL Just what did you put in those green strawberry muffins you made the other day and how many did you eat ?? LOL Johnny is quite the versatile actor, I’m sure he’ll pull off both roles with panache. πŸ™‚

  6. hmmm…
    okay, i’ll leave that scene out of my life story

    i’m not saying this was a bad post,
    but i’m thinking that it made less of an
    impact on me because i routinely imagine
    everyone’s life as a movie…

  7. Ohhhh … wow !! I think those were my first two “cool” props ever for my any of my posts !! LOL Thanks Debbie and Sianna !! πŸ™‚

  8. OMG !! You’re right … I didn’t include any Manilow in Episode I !! Thanks for pointing that out !! I’ve got Episode II plotted out already, but he’ll definitely make the Episode III soundtrack !! Gawd I’m so weird !! Nice hearing from you again Debster !! πŸ™‚

  9. i still can’t find MY comments box,
    so i’ll have to ask here–
    am i out of my mind,
    or is this a great scene?

    johnny depp and julia roberts(playing a guy)
    are at a bar and profoundly drunk;
    depp is talking about how they’ll graduate soon,
    and he’s scared to death about interviewing,
    and maybe he won’t get a job in broadcasting,
    maybe he’ll be selling sunglasses wholesale
    by phone for the rest of his life…

    they go (together) to the men’s room,
    and they’re standing side by side
    at the urinals
    and julia roberts says,
    “You’re taking a piss with a guy
    who wants to have your baby.
    How the hell could ANYTHING scare you?”
