Welcome to my daydream…

Click here to continue the fantasy.

FUNNY BACKGROUND STORY: We filmed this very quickly, while my parents were in town for my book signing. Picture this: I’m on the chaise while my Dad fiddles with the camera. Joe is standing by in tuxedo and swim trunks. (It’s a shame you can’t see that he’s also wearing the tux shirt and a cummerbund.) We all freeze when this guy wanders down the path to our house and looks around like he’s just fallen down the rabbit hole. “Um,” he says. “I just knocked over your neighbor’s motorcycle, but he doesn’t seem to be home. Do you know how I can get in touch with him?”

Joe scampers inside to get the portable phone and call Neighbor Brad. Reaches him, and hands the phone to the guy. Brief conversation ensues. He hangs up, and hands the phone to me. “Um, thank you.”

Me, with gracious, duchessy smile. “You’re welcome.”

We never did explain what we were doing. I just hope the presence of my parents convinced him it was not an “adult” movie.

Author Esri Rose interviews “Colin” the “incubus-possessed ring,” which she bought on eBay.

If you’re wondering what the heck this is all about, go here for the background. And if you need an extraordinary voice actor, contact Dave Christi. This project would have been nothing without him, and he was divine to work with. Musette, on the other hand, was a little bit of a prima donna. We won’t talk about the Corgi. And just for the heck of it, here’s the one unscripted out-take. Can’t imagine why it didn’t make the cut.

    Hi Esri,

    Thanks, dear. You look so pretty -as always. Love the voice you are working with. The cat at the end looks just like Khuddles !!! I am so excited that your book has been published and will be out soon. Can’t imagine how proud your folks must be. Maybe we could have it and you in the lobby a bit at the theatre if that is something that you would like. Let me know and I will find out if possible. I bet they would and it’s a captive audience.

    Love you , dear and so happy for you. (Hi Joe, love you too.)

    Esri – You amaze me with your creativity! You also look quite lovely in your moooovie. Musette is quite the little actress too. Look forward to getting a copy of your book.

    OMG! This is great, Esri. Even the unscripted part! You are too funny. That guy’s voice is amazing!!! Love him. Must go preorder your book right now.

    Was Joe moving the ring?

    Too funny.

  5. Esri Rose Says:

    Those credits go by pretty fast, but that’s me doing the ring puppetry, Theresa. I built the mechanism and manipulated it.

    And Dave Christi has a seriously fine voice. I couldn’t get enough of him, frankly.

  6. JoAn Segal Says:

    What fun! Thanks, Esri and lots of good luck with the book. Will be at your signing party on May 10!
