Peace and Big Screen Fame

Some people go to church on Sundays. Some people lounge about the house in fuzzy pink platypus slippers. And some people make a pot of coffee and read Dear Abby columns to their loved ones.

But, nope. Not me.

So, what was I doing this past Sunday at about noon?
Why, dragging coffins across the sand on Santa Monica beach and lining up white crosses, of course! Why...? What ELSE would I be doing?!

My mother and I and hundreds of others were taking part in a national Women Say No to War event organized by CodePink. It was an assembly of concerned men and women for peace who gathered on the beach to have their voices heard and be a part of a large, aerial artistic statement.

The sand was the canvass, the people, the paint, and a circling helicopter was the capturer of the image.

And, yup. I think my big debut in the spotlight was quite a hit! I see wide-open Hollywood doors on the horizon and, most likely, a supporting role alongside George Clooney in the near future.

Check me out here! If you squint a bit, you can make out my dramatically intense Cry-for-Peace pose! (I'm the faint pink splotch on the upper right hand side of the O in NO.)

And, if anyone knows of a good agent who'd be interested in helping to find high-paying forums for my powerful theatrical performances, I'll be interviewing all next week...

Aww, thanks nicole! I can help you, too, to go big time if you want. I hear they're looking for female Canadians with Peace Pa-zazz like yours!

-c, I gotta say, you look great in pink!

And give me a call if you need an agent. I'm a better negotiator than Jack Nicholson and way less crazy than Tom Cruise.

minus c,I don't think I thanked you properly for leaving the bes comment I've received on my blog. Only you understand me. The military troops don't have the foggist notion what they are fighting and dying about. They may think they do, but they don't.Keep up your good work. STOP THE WAR NOW!

dingobear- Thanks! Yeah, I could use someone with some negotiating ability! Hagglers and bargainers with experience in whining and begging might be best suited for the job!

frustrated- jee whiz... I didn't think I was such a cute pink splash, but now... you've made my day brighter!

anonymous- I sometimes rub myself with my mouse for luck too!

Cap'n Rich- That's the toughest thing about this- that NO ONE really knows what's being fought for, yet we all need to believe SOMETHING... Well, it's nice to know there's another supporter out in N.C.!
