..this is an excerpt from an email between one of my brothers (B2) and I:
Me: Did you hear that I've got a new job starting in January?
B2: If you have the job of interviewing strippers at dance clubs, could I be your apprentice?
Me: You know what's funny? While high as a kite on painkillers last night, Mom asked me if I was the 'lady' from the 'That's why the lady is a tramp' song and now you think I should be interviewing strippers... I clearly need to rethink how I present myself.
Actually, I've been asked to join the faculty at ********** College. You may now call me 'Professor'. ;o)
B2: What are you teaching at ***********? "How to stay sane with an ex-husband, husband, teenage twins, a newborn and a dying mother?"
Me: No, that's going to be the book that gets me on Oprah.
B2: When the book gets made into a movie, who's going to play you (Ju.lia Ro.berts is too old now). And, more importantly, who's going to play me?
Me: I'm shooting for C.harlize Thero.n (a girl can dream). maybe To.m Han.ks for you?
B2: Gee, he's getting old and a bit heavy*. Dani.el Craig would be great....
P.S. - I often dream about Charlize Theron too.
P.P.S. - we could get the chick who plays Penn.y** on Big Bang Th.eory to do you if it's a comedy.
Me: K.... D.aniel Craig it is. .. and I'm pretty sure we're not dreaming the same things about Charlize. Think I can ger Ge.orge Lucas*** to play B1? Suggestions for Sis?
B2: Actually, Juli.a Rob.erts would be ok for Sis. G Lu.cas would be great for B1.
Me: So it's settled then! I feel much better. Now I just need to write the book...(and maybe figure out how to survive first)!
So it's true - I am going to be teaching at an Ontario College starting in the winter semester... I am really looking forward to it as it's WAY better than working retail!
Now I just have to find a wonderful person to watch Chip while I'm at school. I'm already having nightmares about this, so you can imagine this is not going to be an easy exercise.
I won't trust a face like this to just anyone, you know:
*Note: B2 just turned 50.
** B2 swears that Penny from the Big Bang is exactly like me in personality. Being a fan of the show, I have to admit he's right...even Mark says it's so. I was Penny about 20 years ago.
***My eldest brother, B1, is a dead ringer for G.eorge Lucas!
