we get stacks and stacks of letters. letterrrrs!

Here are just a tiny few of the emails that have gotten me through the past few days.

From Mona:
Last night I watched some Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. I'd never seen it before and it put me in a state of trash-TV paralysis! Why doesn't she get her jugs fixed?? They are so horrifying. In one episode her cleavage resembled a butthole! Still, she seems like a very nice person. I watched one and a half episodes and then switched to the Obama in the White House special so I wouldn't have nightmares.
Ryan and I wondered, what if there were a sequel to The Room?
I can't think anything would top The Room. What would happen if The Room II: Getting Roomier (working title) had a budget? I think to preserve Tommy's naive genius he has to maintain total creative control. I dreamt that I wrote an action-adventure movie script and presented it to Tommy Wiseau. He said he liked the story but would only agree to be a part of it if I allowed him to act and direct it. I quickly agreed and said I'd also like him to edit the script anyway he pleased. Secretly, I just wanted to see Tommy in fatigues firing a machine gun into a jungle (with a cigar in his mouth) before he delivered a line like, "The jungle is no place for a women!" I'm sure we could develop something.
Then Mona and I talked about a possible The Room sequel too:
I can see it right now, crisp as a wafer. The Room II: Hospital on Guerrerro Street. He wakes up in the hospital!! After being in a coma for 2 weeks, of course. Just enough time for Lisa, Mark and Denny to tear each other to shreds over his possible demise. It will be "Johnny's my best friend" to the nth degree as they reminisce about how great he was, PLUS this opens up the possibility for a love triangle between Lisa Mark and Denny! I dunno, too obvious? Or too obvious in a PERFECT way..
More from Ryan:
I think Showgirls is so so so amazing. I will watch it alone and just laugh to myself, which I'm sure is both creepy and strange of me. Elizabeth Berkeley is so entertaining and the dialogue makes me roll my eyes. But I have to say, as a screenplay, the story is not that bad. I think I watch it tonight. [Me to Ryan: I love especially when she's eating a hamburger in the back of that guy's car. The way she bites into that burger just kills me!]
I start work today. Am debating whether it's too soon to call in sick.
