Did you ever see the Seinfeld episode where Jerry is forced to make recordings of movies and sell them on the black market?
Really? It's a good one.
Anyway, the point is this. I am not one to steal things. Like, well, and I hate to admit this, but my father. Who once offered the movie Stealth to my husband so he could watch it on DVD.
Stealth had been out in the theatres ONE WEEK.
My dad had been given a BLACK MARKET movie.
MY DAD! BLACK MARKET!
This is the same man who once told me that whenever he thought back to my teenage years the only thing he would remember was that I cheated on a typing test.
A typing test!
How is cheating on a typing test even possible?
Plus, his remark was a little overdramatic. I know this because years later I asked him, "Dad, what do you remember most about my teenage years" to which he replied, "The time I let you and your college CO-HORTS take my Volvo out for a spin and you ended up using my [big, honkin' 1989] cellular phone to call The Arsenio Hall show."
15 times in a row.
Point being...I don't steal. I give credit where credit is due.
And if I like the person.
So over at Spence Smith's blog I noticed that he once listed 25 things that inspire him. Now, I'm not Spence, so believe you me, our lists are completely different. For instance, he wrote that one thing that inspires him is "the feeling I get after a good run."
Whereas that would more likely make my "25 Things That Make Me Want to Lay Down On The Interstate and Pray for Sure Death" list.
But, to each his own.
So here is my list. Don't laugh! In fact, if you're gonna do that - then getcher own durn list. We're not supposed to make fun of what inspires people.
Unless it's Spence.
And it involves physical activity.
Cuz that's just weird. So here goes...
Sure, there were a few I didn't add. But I was afraid you all might think I was trivial. I mean, I wanted to add my favorite show of all time, Seinfeld, as well as re-runs of The Love Boat. But it was a toss-up between those and the depth that is "big Texas hair."
Okay, your turn. I'm headed to your blog to see what inspires you. (Make sure you spell Stretch Marks correctly. cough. cough.)
