Life Clips

Sporadic blogging for me these days with rehearsals, etc. But in the paper this morning, I read a list of, most of the movies coming out this Fall along with a one sentence description. I guess they really like Twittering in the New York Times.

I love the fall movie schedule (because many are Oscar contenders) but after reading so many short descriptions, they all seem to blend into one another, and I end reading some weird descriptions (especially before coffee):

  • A waitress traces the world's dependence on oil in this animated family classic

  • A teen pursues his dream girl, the only US Marshall in Antarctica, who is racing to catch a killer who lives vicariously through robots.
Not sure I want to see either of those flicks. But it got me thinking, how much more fun would today be (or any day) if I just planned it out like a one-line movie promo. You know, I'll just pitch my day to myself and see what happens:

Kate wakes up early to go for a run and spends the rest of the day trying to recover her lost sleep.


On her one day off, a Stage Manager has 24 hours to make her house livable for her family for another week.

Sounds so much more exciting than what I'm actually going to do.


  1. I think you've nailed how to make the mundane exciting. Next Saturday, Helen will exhume dust particles with a Dyson and give the duvet a murderous shake up by hanging.

  2. ha love it...and you have captured the essence of twittering it seems as well.

    Surrounded on all sides, Brian perilously fights for his life in a landslide of paperwork due tomorrow by 10 am.

  3. YAY! Suddenly our lives are so much more exciting. Never knew it could be that easy.
