“A Helping Hand”

My friend has been having electrical problems at her house and she says to me, “I ran into your dad the other day, he offered to come by and help.” “Oh really?” “Yeah, he’s such a nice man.”  “Yes, he is, he has a big heart.  You may, however, want to have an ambulance on standby, just in case you have to kick start it at some point.”

Yeah, he’s not real good with electrical stuff.  One time he went down to the basement to change a light bulb, the lights flickered and the next thing I know, Albert Einstein is standing in our living room.  Oh, don’t worry, I gave him a snickers bar and he was fine.  I think he even managed to figure out how to re-animate a corpse at one point.  Not a real comfortable situation for a thirteen year old at two o’clock in the morning when she sees her dead grandma at the foot of her bed.

Grandma: “Uhhh…”

“I love you too grandma, just don’t eat me.”

My grandma tried to eat me, that just sounds wrong on so many levels.  Then again, any conversation that starts with “I want to eat you.” can only go downhill from there.

“Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan”

I caHeat474n honestly say “Chloe Sullivan” was one of my favorite characters on “Smallville.”  She was adorable, smart, resourceful, tenacious and one of the most loyal friends “Clark Kent” ever had.  Despite the feelings she had for “Clark” and feeling the pain of pining for someone she knew in her heart she would never have,  she was always there for him and later on became his main sidekick.

I wish I had a tenth of “Chloe’s” character.  She had a lot of passion and she 1Chloe-Sullivan-Matrix episodewasn’t afraid to stick to her guns when she felt she was doing the right thing, even if she was being ‘crucified’ for it.  That takes a lot of guts and she had plenty of that, and who can forget the “Matrix” episode, or when they went into the future, she was bad-ass too.

Allison Mack“Allison Mack”, after looking at her blog makes me believe they knew what they were doing when they chose her for that role.   She’s quite a talented writer.  Check it out, not the ‘wall of weird’, but it’s very creative.
