current state of mind: star-struck
Cuma lada, cuma lada, cuma lada vista.
Oh, no no no not the vista.
Essa mini sala mini ooh walla walla mini
Say, bee billy oh bo, bo bo bo dee dot bo bo bo

Many people have asked me about “that whole VIVOS thing” with the underground shelter and the apocalypse, etc. I have been rather quiet about it of late because, well, there hasn’t been too much to share. But the winds of change are upon us and I have some amazing news. One, the Indiana shelter is online. This means that it is complete and ready for boarding. You can take a visual tour here: www.TerraVivos.com/indiana.htm. The décor has me a little perplexed – because I think that they could have foregone the checkerboard motif and went with something a little more timely, since it could be the last existing home for mankind. Kudos, however, on the use of granite and what looks to be Kohler faucets throughout the facility.
The family sleeping quarters are compact – I mean, even Ikea couldn’t provide a sense of spaciousness in there – so I call top bunk in advance. I get a real sense of “District 13” about the place. Maybe Vivos ought to cash in on that idea and get some “May the Odds Be Ever In Your Favor” action. I am not so sure the designers got the memo that said “We are going to be underground for a year – make it look less like my basement and more like the main floor.” Still, I won’t complain. The Nebraska Shelter will be far larger and quite a bit nicer . . . I have it on good authority.
So the Indiana shelter was good news – but this is better. Pilgrim Studios, the Reality Show EXPERTS, want to do a reality series on Vivos and there has been a casting call which includes a family membership to the shelter of my choice. I say “my” because I sent in my written application and feel that it has just enough “underlying crazy-factor” in it to attract the attention of the producers. Well, if not the producers, then Vivos, because they need at least one person who appears to be semi-normal on their little show if they want to sell spots. I am that girl! I have included my application for the series below. Let me know what you think.
The risks ahead for mankind are too numerous to count. You have crazy people who want to control overpopulation by releasing bio-hazards into the water or air. There are melting ice caps and fragile fault lines. Seriously, how can we not expect catastrophe? And we know that we cannot count on the world's governments to help us out . . . they can't even keep their everyday life under control. The Vivos shelters are mankind's most viable hope for a future.
I am a great candidate for the series and Vivos because I enjoy the challenges that accompany changing life responsibilities and have always been able to quickly identify and overcome learning curves. I have no fear of speaking my mind and am willing to open my life to the viewers of this forward-thinking television series. I am a stickler for details and don't eat very much. I will bring a variety of skill sets and talents which will make shelter life better for everyone. I have a history degree and can recite historical facts from memory, meaning we will be able to maintain the integrity of our past through the teaching of this information to future generations. I also have a minor in English Literature and am working on my Paralegal degree which should be completed before December 2012.
My intellect and genius IQ will provide a genetic advantage to the geneticists and reproductive experts who are also housed in the shelter. I am also in the process of learning how to care for and use multiple weapons; both for food resources and to defend our shelter from enemies, both foreign and domestic. I take the survival of the human race very seriously and will do anything necessary to contribute to the success of the Vivos shelter. Plus, I do not believe in the Zombie Apocalypse, which is utter nonsense.
My Myers-Briggs classification is: INTJ
My StrengthsFinder© Signature Themes are: 1) Intellection; 2) Input; 3) Strategic; 4) Responsibility; 5) Learner
If I am selected for this series, I know that Vivos will be portrayed in a positive manner.
If they don’t pick me, I have to find a new way to secure my spots since I don’t have the cash readily on hand to actually pay for my 4 reserved spots. They will eventually want my money – and I have to find the shelter location on my own or I have to pay them. I am hoping for the former. Wish me luck – and as the slogan goes: “We wish you the best of luck in whatever the future may bring. Remember, it wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.”
PERSONAL NOTE: Yes, one of the spots is still yours.
CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: Tell him that we can make an Anakin one together if he wants. I’ll show him how. It’d be fun!
