I just got done sending my pitch to Ellen Degeneres. This is the same idea I have been working on for a few weeks now and have sent out a couple different places. So I am crossing my fingers and hoping she sees it and sees what an obviously unbelievable talent I am. And also of course see my pure modesty.
While I was submitting everything to her my Internet decided to run at speeds that reminded me of when my parents first got us America Online. I was ready to throw my laptop across the room at one point. I have found though, that my writing gets better the more angry or frustrated I am. You would think comedy…ok its fun and you should be in a fun happy mood to write it. But nope I am at my best when I have just stubbed my toe, found out I owe $300 to the city for parking tickets, and realized that while on sleeping pills recently I sent an email to everyone I know letting them know I wet the bed until an embarrassingly late age. If I am angry, sad, embarrassed, or hurt…it’s all gold.
The idea I sent to her is my idea about helping promote women’s soccer while also promoting my winning smile and witty dialogue of course. Long story short, I would be a correspondent for her like she has sometimes for certain events. But instead of sitting there screaming like a moron like most of the fans who end up doing these things, I would be interactive and have tons of ideas for interviews, skits, and video entries. I have plenty of ideas separate from this one as well I would love to do, but this one has just really taken over all of my time. As I have stated recently, I am actually having dreams about this idea like every other night. Of course, when I am not dreaming about this I am in fact dreaming about being the lead singer of an 80’s hair band who lives with the Golden Girls and only performs at drive in movie theaters side by side with a mime show. You know, the usual. Man, if I could combine the crazy ass dreams about Ellen and the WPS with the Golden Girls and 80’s hair band music with mimes it could quite possibly be the world’s most epic dream sequence. I’ll keep you updated on if this magnificent event comes about.
So cross your fingers for my Ellen idea, and also that I get to have that dream.
