Fun Monday Stardom
It's time for another Fun Monday assignment, and this week's hostess is Janet, from the Planet of Janet. She was curious about the movie trailer for our life story, and who we might choose to play in our feature film about our lives.
Given the recent discovery of my heritage, who better to play me than Penelope Cruz? However endearing her accent, she'd have to drop if for a CaliforniTexArkansan style - just to prove her acting chops. Of course, given the nature of my beginnings in this world as an abandoned baby, the movie would have to start off dark, and brooding, with the feeble cries of an infant echoing in a filthy gas station restroom. Destined for Hollywood GREATNESS! Of course, it would progress on to show my mistreatment in foster care, and resolve somewhat in the youth years as my adoptive parents molded me into a child prodigy. I think I would skip most of this stuff, since I lived thru a lot of this phase with buck-teeth.
Then the blur of college - which would basically show the true "formative" years of Tiggerlane. The time in my life when my eyes were opened, and I discovered more about myself than I thought possible.
Of course, a recurring theme of me struggling with my pursuit of perfection and my constant need to reach that "next" level of success must be included. After all, that is key to character development.
The birth of my only-known relative would be a plot crescendo, and then in later years? I would hope to be portrayed as such:A woman who is passionately committed to making the world a better place, without the passle of adopted kids, however.
Now go visit all the other participants lurking around Janet's Planet!
