The Hollywood Version

Hear that sound? That's me. Quickly clacking at the typewriter working on my own million-dollar Hollywood screenplay version of the 2008 presidential election, I have begun sending out feelers to the stars. If I can get someone attached to it, it will help me sell it to the studios. By sending out feelers, I mean "wishing really hard." If you know any of these people personally, please get me in touch with them.

Here's who I am thinking about...

Barack Obama

Hillary Clinton

John McCain

I smell blockbuster. And some BenGay.

(sidenote: Jason Meyer tipped me off to WKRP in Cincinnati being available on Hulu. Check it out. It's one of the best sitcoms of all time. Even though they wrestled with securing rights to the music used at the time - and lost - the writing and stellar ensemble are still present.)


Yesterday, I asked...

"Jessica Bruinsma of Colorado was stranded in the Bavarian Alps and was rescued with the aid of her what?"

12% said "Pepper Spray"
- She just had that on hand for those pesky goats.

No one went for ""O" Magazine" or "Trusty St. Bernard"

88% got it right with "Sports Bra"

According to The Associated Press, Berchtesgaden police officer Lorenz Rasp said that he helped lift 24-year-old Jessica Bruinsma of Colorado state to safety by helicopter on Thursday after she attracted the attention of lumberjacks by attaching her sports bra to a cable used to move timber down the mountain. The rescue occurred, of course, after the lumberjacks took turns trying on said brassiere.

Here's is a photo taken just after Jessica's recovery.
