in the tradition of thousands of years... surprise is what life is all about... you know, those tornadoes just found on the surface of the sun at 300,000 mph vs earth's 300 mph tornadoes... (heard it on the news)

is it a surprise that life as violent as is the sun? (heard violence on the news tonight)

soooooooo, how to get surprise into humor? takes that GIANT LEAP into the world of truly being a little kid again...

haven't read your screenplay yet... but I bet it is full of fun (as your reviewer said)

WHAT WAS A SURPRISE WAS that really cool neon type light on your blog which could get to be a bit visually "unsurprising" in the past... so, you see, you have produced a SURPRISE ! (jump and shout!)-----

with love
miss you
