What about me? It isn't fair.
And yes, that's said in a whiny voice.
Lord knows, I hear a lot of whiny voices, so I'm pretty darn sure I have the inflection and tonal quality down pat.
And that's not just the the kids I deal with on a daily basis either - though they're great little role models.
It's also the voices in my head. They whine a lot too.
Well, not that I really have voices in my head ... since I actually prefer to call it "internal dialog"... And I find it extremely therapeutic to delude myself in this way.
So please, just don't tell my psychiatrist, okay?
And what's got me in this mood?
Okay, I'll tell you...
Just to keep you happy.
Y'all have heard the news that Ree Drummond, aka "Pioneer Woman", is now gonna have a movie made about her life.
Well, it seems they're in "talks" anyway, but knowing this woman and the phenomenal success she's had with her blog, her cookbook, and with her now writing a book, I just reckon that there's no doubt that we're gonna be lining up to see the movie - starring Reese Witherspoon - sometime in the not-too-distant future. (see the article HERE, or go here to hear Ree tell the story herself)
Now see, what got me into this whole blogging thing in the first place, was a parent who had come for an initial interview... and when she heard my American accent, she started rattling off about this other American woman who has a blog called The Pioneer Woman... and how the fantastic recipes in it had literally saved her marriage... and how the blog itself had brought her endless hours of entertainment, not to mention saving her sanity.
Well, "sanity saving" is pretty big in my book, so as soon as she left, I jumped right into googling anything I could find about "The Pioneer Woman."
Which led me to the PW blog...
Which led me to other blogs... including yours.
Which led me to the belief that I too, could join the ranks of women with something to say.
Unfortunately, most of you say it better than I do, so I'll just fall back on my original story of using blogging as "somewhat therapeutic" and a pretty pitiful legacy for my grandsons.
So maybe my story and my blog aren't exactly book-worthy (okay, now who am I kidding?) and I know that I'll never make it to the big screen, let alone the little screen... but hey, it's a great little stress-reliever.
For me anyway.
I don't know about you.
So anyway, the whole idea of Reese Witherspoon playing the part of Ree Drummond, got me thinking about who could play my part... if a movie was ever made about me, that is.
(See? Told you I was mildly delusional.)
And the best I could come up with is Bea Arthur.
Unfortunately, Bea has now passed away.
So there go my dreams... shot to hell.
More Sunday Funnies...!
