Who would you want to be?

With nothing on TV last night, Dirk and I got into a really funny conversation that I just had to share. I’m not exactly sure how it got started, but Dirk mentioned that if he could be anyone else he would want to be Wolf Blitzer (from CNN). Dirk told me that if he could be Wolf, I could be Meredith (from Grey’s). Seriously, Meredith, the most troubled person in the world (I mean if she were actually a person anyway). No thank you. I think he was thinking of my mad crush on Patrick Dempsey.

I was like really out of everyone in the whole world you would be Wolf? Well, then he decided it need serious consideration, right. We went through several possibilities like Hugh Heffner, Dirk Diggler, and Pale (the soccer player, I can’t make the accent mark over the e) and Anderson Cooper. Even my own step father; his reasoning being that he thinks my step dad has an easy life as my mother does everything around the house and he has a good job that Dirk believes is easy and fun. So, I guess he was looking for lifestyle as opposed to actually being the person… He was looking for someone “cool” and exciting. Someone that had lots of power. After about two hours of considering all these people and telling me why exactly he DID NOT want to be them i.e. too much sex at work means you don’t want to for fun, too much work, too much fame, too gay, and so on. Believe it or not, he finally decided that he wanted to be HIMSELF. Crazy huh?

Well this got me thinking, who would I want to be? I went an entirely different direction. First, I thought who wouldn’t want to be Oprah?! Then I remembered her crappy childhood. Do I get to be her now and not have the past? I guess not because her past made her who she is. I thought maybe Reese Witherspoon. Silly, I know, but she has tons of money, cute kids, is passionate about her work, famous enough to go wherever she wants but not so famous she can’t live her life. The only problem is that pesky divorce. Although, I might prefer to have divorced Ryan Phillippe than to have never married him at all!
Aren't they cute??

I haven’t been able to pick just one person. I am trying hard to think of some really great singer (which I wish I could be, but as I can’t sing at all I guess that won’t happen), but a great artist with passion. And maybe a little crazy! I do still have Michelle Obama on the list. Pretty, smart, powerful. She can do great things in the next few years and I personally think she will…. I don’t know maybe Marilyn Monroe! More fun.

I think I would go with Angelina Jolie. She has a fantastic life, lots of kids, gets to travel, gets to...well, gets to do whatever the hell she WANTS with Brad Pitt, has lots of money, etc., etc.

I think she had a crazy childhood, but so did I, so if that is part of the deal, I think I could handle it!!! :)

Merry Christmas!

That's too funny. I had actually thought about her too. All that power to make change in the world... that's what I like most.
But Brad Pitt runs a close second. I'm not sure I could stand to be the "other woman" or be the one to hurt another woman like that. I just don't have it in me.
