The Movie Deal Project, Take One

Okay, so I feel pretty confident that I am going to do the "one new thing a week" idea from Jen of Hey Y'all.


I was thinking that I would start each month with a "Reader's Choice." Within reason, well, let me rephrase, I will start of this project with a "Reader's Choice" and then we will see how nutball you guys are with your ideas. Remember, I am doing this to broaden my horizons..... okay, not really, I am doing this to get a book and/or movie (even though some chick with a big blog said you can NOT get rich from your blog, whatever)...and I disagree with Astarte, I think people will LINE UP to see Bette Midler and Denzel Washington searching a lake for a fresh water jellyfish that really might have been a baggie, but I guess I could be open for suggestions as we start inking up the deal with the production company. On the same vein, it is going to be a great ensemble cast...so far we have Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet, in addition to Denzel and Bette).


Anyway, I digress. In the next week or two, I will create a poll for my first endevour which I will undertake during the first week in June, so start thinking about something you have wanted to try or do but haven't for whatever reason, a book, a recipe, an exercise class, etc. I will be teaching summer school, so I will have time, but not loads and loads of time, and I will be fairly limited on cash, so helicopter lessons and deep sea fishing are probably off the list (for that week, anyhow). After I get some entries (in addition to the ones you already sent in), I will post a poll, you guys will vote, and the winning entry will be the first task I will complete in my lameass attempt to score a movie deal.


I will work on accomplishing "THE task" during the first week of June and report back. I am really very goofily excited about this, I think I just needed something other that weightloss and tenure to obsess over!

HP--This will be fun!
In other news, someone anonymously commented me that thirtsyomething is officially coming out on DVD this August! You will have to go right out and buy it and watch it and then we can obsess together. I think you will LOVE it. But then I'll feel like a total jackass if you don't...

Yaaaaaaaaaaay! This is a great plan. Hey, if it doesn't get made into a movie but does get made into a Broadway show, do I still get a TGIFridays gift card? Cuz I have theatre connections...

Oh, what fun this will be! I'll start thinking of fun things to do in Alabama. For one, you should come this way and visit the Bass Pro Shop.

This sounds so fun! (but I still think you need to pick a female lead that's hotter than Bette, because Denzel, srsly, wow) How about getting a part-time job as a sandwich board person, the one who wears the board on the sidewalks? You could do it for a day or two, and hide the camera under the board!
