Studying for my mid Term...inator


True email written to Rex today, right before the kids and I crashed out for a late nap.

" Hi babe. A location scout from The Terminator just came by and took pictures of the house. They are interested in using us for filming. It would be a six month gig – Sarah and her son’s new home. It would pay (insert ridiculous amount where we'll probably sign our lives away but if we could actually replace the laminate from the photo, and maybe our 1974 toilets, it'd be worth it.)

They like our casa because it is “very Americana” and “non-descript.” “Clean” but a place where “terminators could hide in peace.”

We've had location managers here before, but never has a Terminator crew come to the home of an actual living Terminator - my little robotic Rex. He would be stoked. I'll keep you posted. But probably not in detail. If we get the gig, I'm sure we'll be signing away all rights to speak or we will be detonated.

How's everyone's Monday?

As long as your home doesn't get terminated, it could work. Especially tempting with old toilets.

Liv sent me over to find you re: BlogHer conference. Can you email me?

TroyBoy said...

That's awesome. I'll be looking for your 1974 toilets next season!

Monnik said...

"Where terminators can hide in peace." That's great. It also makes me think of small children for some reason.

you live the COOLEST life....


if the P family becomes homeless, you could come visit your suburban friends to the south!

Steph said...

That is so...neato!! Will you have to live elsewhere during that time? I know not how these things work.

Big Daddy said...

It's too easy, but.....

The Location Scout says to y'all "I'll be back!"

Cheesy, I know. Enjoy your set decorations. I think you should insist on having them replace yer stuff (toilets,etc) if they're going to use yer pad....

Valerie said...

dammit.

you get location scouts at your house, i get the local police because of the drunk downstairs.

dam-dam-dammit.

I KNEW there was a reason I should be living in Cal....I think this is waaaay cool.
Except for that non-descript part.
I think it is a very *scriprt* home!

I wonder what MY house would harbor...oooh. The mind boggles.

Do you think Brian Dennehy might be in this?? *Oh please Sue...*

Love you,
Sue

Terri said...

That's kinda cool....what would you do, then? Rent an apartment for 6 months? I suppose you would have to clear all the stuff out of the house too.

When they got done, you could super clean and paint and re-arrange and maybe even buy new stuff with the money they would give you....oh....tempting!!!!
Good luck!
Terri

You are so much cooler than I am. My house is very "Americana" and "non descript"! Why don't they want to use MY house?

sari said...

Well who's Monday is going to compare to *that*??

(or Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday....)

Gretchen said...

Hmm....trying not to be jealous. Losing the battle very quickly. ;)

Dapoppins said...

Well, that is so cool, and they might keep you in mind anyway!
