Wanted: Life Narrator

I've decided that I need a narrator, like Mary Alice on Desperate Housewives or Irv during the first couple of seasons of Everwood. A warm, soothing voice to look at all that is going on in my life and the lives of those around me. A voice to pull together common themes in those lives and which can then wrap up everything weekly in a nice, coherent package. Anyone know where I can find one of those?

If you are interested in applying, here's what you need to do for your interview. Take the following pictures and make with the narration.

New Headband



New Haircuts





Big Lizard



Site of Future Sunflower Fort



Pumpkin Patch

I'm jealous of your future pumpkins and sunflower houses! My yard is entirely made up of sandy ant hills.

I love narrators in tv and film. I even prefer the original narrative-enriched version of Blade Runner.
Would you be able to hear your narrator? Because I think that a narrator who favoured foreshadowing would ruin my day. I'd be filled with sense of foreboding. Chances are my every move would be noted by Emma Thompson's voice intoning "And so it came to pass that Alpha Dogma set into motion the downfall of humanity." That would totally kill my buzz.

what fun photos and wow am so awed by the lizard in your yard cause that would so never ever happen here ~ way to short of a warm season, lol ...

i always thought a narrator would be super fun plus s/he might point out the obvious which i so often miss, hee hee ... if you find out where to get one let me know ;-)

have a wonderful long weekend!!

AD, I hadn't given specific thought to whether or not I could hear the narrator. I think I was assuming I would somehow know what they were saying so that I could receive my life lessons in 48 minute, weekly doses. BUT, the thought of that foreshadowing you mention has me quaking in my boots. If there is going to be foreshadowing, I don't want to know about it!

You have a most interesting blog.

Take care,

Wait...you don't hear a voiceover in your head? Spinning out observations about the obvious and throwing in dire---yet vague and unsubstantiated---foreshadowing?

;)

I'd put my mind to it but my mind is heading out (along with the rest of me LOL---said to clarify in case it seemed as if my mind was getting a vacation [it wishes]). I'll see if your challenge is still here when I get back. :)

I always felt like Paul Harvey woulda done a stand up job for this life....

"...and now for what it's worth.....the rrrrrest of the story!"

PUMPKINS and sunflowers!

Wow....now I'm envious beyond envious!

Mel said...

Arrgghh....can I just add that I'm miffed that I didn't bother to hang on to some of that paisley 'stuff' that was 'outdated' and 'throw-out worthy'. LOL

Go figure it all comes back 'round....

I'm so intrigued by this idea of a sunflower fort...do you plant the flowers in a circle and do they grow just right and truly make a fort?

L-Girl said...

I want a narrator too!! That would be so cool. There are times when I'm doing something, usually alone, when I think of what a narrator would be saying if they were watching me. I know it's crazy. Love the projects you have going on. And Marley's haircut is adorable.

I'd love a life narrator too ... it might help me make a lot more sense of it all!

Aliki, I'm not sure exactly how it is going to work. I once bought a sunflower fort kit from Smith & Hawken in which you planted the sunflowers in a circle and bordered it with a square of a medium height flower. In between the border and the outside of the sunflower circle were shorter flowers. Well, I never got the kit planted so I think I will start with the sunflowers which are some giant variety. We planted the seeds yesterday and sometime in the next few days, I'll go look for other flowers that will look nice around the outside. We'll keep our fingers crossed that it all turns out!
