John Travolta will not be wrecking my trash pick up

Got a message shoved in the mail box today. It seems there's going to be a movie taking over our neighborhood next week. First they explained who was in it (bad move I think - you're going to alienate all the people who hate someone in your cast), then they mentioned that from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. traffic will be diverted to accomodate filming. But they're aware of trash pick-up day, and we're all fine there. We can't get out of our driveways probably, but the trash will go on. It's okay though, they said some very complementary things about our photogenic housing area. Bet that doesn't include our photogenic yard with the highly aesthetic tomato plants we just dug in.

I think our politicians have been tarting the city because there have been several movie crews around recently. Maybe they were just irritated that our previous claims to cinematic fame were Bugs Bunny's endless wrong turns, a mention on the Simpsons (Ooooh, there's a NEW Mexico!), and being the place COPS most likes to film because our petty criminals are the most fun.

Anyway, I suppose it's a bit late now to sell lawn chair seats for people hoping to see the stunt double for some B-list actor whiz by on a motorcycle. Oh well, maybe we can set up a lemonade stand in time.
