Just call me...Superstar!
When I was a little girl, I dreamed about someday being a Hollywood actress, a Star. I wasn't alone. Most of my friends, at that age, wanted to be one too, so we would act out movies that we liked or shows on TV. One such show was The Big Valley, with Lee Majors, Linda Evans and Barbara Stanwyck. I was always Audra. ;)

Of course, we never missed acting out scenes from the Bionic Woman. Running in slow motion, making that sound that you heard when she was running and using her bionic powers. That was the life.

Unfortunately, my only claims to fame was a University of Alabama commercial back in the 80's (I was the one walking down the steps of the Geography building and then off and a Universal Studios themepark video made in either 1993 or 1994. My kids have discovered this video, which I purchased back then as soon as someone informed me that I was actually in it!

I was working at Jaws at this time. It was just the luck of the draw that I was working that day and somehow I lucked out on taking the film crew around the lagoon a few times while they shot me doing my spiel, and then shot the passengers expressions a few times as Jaws attacked.

J watched that video seven times yesterday and is already on it again today. Poor baby. He thinks Mommy is such a big movie star. And since he loves the movie Jaws, he just gets so excited to see Mommy up there shooting the shark on the TV. I must have had a total of three lines that made the cut and total screen time had to have been 20 seconds. And, since it is so outdated, I am sure they have a newer one that they made after I quit the company. But it makes the kids happy to see me and they look up to me, in their cute little way, so I am content. Big star I will never be, but in the eyes of my boys, I am a Superstar!

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
