Lame Friday Five

Wow I just don’t like the questions this week! But, in deference to Chris, I will answer them anyway, at least until I get fed up and start putting lies down for my answers.

1. If your life were a movie, what would the title be?

My life would make an awful movie! The title would be something like “Boring Movie”. Aw, crap. Okay. I’ll answer seriously. “Running From Tornadoes”. Why, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you: it’s both literal (I have been in one tornado and most of my nightmares focus on me running away from a tornado) and figurative (sometimes I feel like I’ve spent parts of my life running from one dangerous or bad situation after another).

2. What songs would be on the soundtrack?

Heh. Hehehehe. Er. . . lots of 80′s and early 90′s songs. Because when I think about my life, most of it was set to those songs, either because that’s what was popular, or that’s what is normally running through my head. Things like “Mama I’m Coming Home”. That’s a good song.

3. Would it be a live-action film or animated? Why?

Live action. Even though I really like animation, my life is not sufficiently wacky, strange, or dramatic to carry an animation through.

4. Casting: who would play you, members of your family, friends, etc?

My mom would be played by Susan Sarandon or Michelle Pfeifer. Probably Michelle Pfeifer because Susan Sarandon looks way older than my mom does. My dad would probably be Billy Bob Thornton. My sister. . . Ashley Judd, I think. Or Sandra Bullock. And me. . . Uh, Drew Barrymore?

None of these are based upon actual physical resemblance.

5. Describe the movie preview/trailer.

Oh good lord. Just big white letters on a black screen that says “RUN FOR THE BASEMENT!” And the sound of a heartbeat. There you go. I just reached my threshold with these questions.
