How would you pitch a reality show about yourself? To what network?
Yesterday I talked about tracing my family tree. Not quite a show, but an episode. I would love to be part of “Who Do You Think You Are?” on TLC. Too bad I’m not a celebrity. But if they ever start doing episodes on real people with interesting lineages/ancestors, sign me up!
I’m not actually sure if my ancestors are interesting. All I know is that someone has traced our Pickell side of the family tree all the way to Germany with some Native American blood somewhere in there. Who are my ancestors? What have they done?
Or they could trace my Filipino side of the family tree because there’s supposedly a national hero in there somewhere. I think it could be a challenge to find the records in the Philippines. I wouldn’t know where to start, except to hope monsoons haven’t swept them away.
Other than that, I don’t think a whole reality show about me would do very well 😀
What fictional character in a movie, tv show, or book do you identify with and why?
My favorite Disney princess, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, because she’s a dreamer. And so am I. There’s really not much to her story, though. At least in the Disney version, the story is with the fairies, Maleficent, Philip, and the 2 kingdoms merging together. Things just kinda happen to Princess Aurora, and a for a long time, I felt that way. We’re good little girls who never stepped out of line and did what we were told.
Which is why I also identify with Belle at least with these lyrics in Belle Reprise:
I want adventure in the great wide somewhere
I want it more than I can tell
And for once it might be grand
To have someone understand
I want so much more than they’ve got planned
Oh, and Princess Aurora likes to dance and so do I. I’m just not an animal person, and dancing in the forest barefoot…gross. I do really like that Prince Philip fights for her.
