Launch Me Ellen! A Mother’s Plea to Ellen DeGeneres

Launch Me Ellen! A Mother’s Plea to Ellen DeGeneres


Hey Ellen and interested visitors/potential supporters :)

What is Launch Me Ellen all about? The short version is that I need Ellen to help me LAUNCH (clever, no?) my writing career. I need to write like Ellen needs to make you laugh. I want to have a more flexible work (and by work I mean write) schedule so I can be home to care for my three wonderful daughters, ages 10, 8 and 6. I want to have flexibility (and by that I mean I want to be able to work wherever I can bring my laptop) in where I work.

My name is Terynn and I am 38 years old. My fiancee’s name is Heidi. I live in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada. Heidi lives in Wichita, Kansas, USA with her three children ages 17, 14 and 4.

Ellen, please help me launch my writing career so Heidi and I do not have to follow up on our backup plan of approaching a producer for a reality show of our life.

Having been a Girl Guide I learned to ”Be Prepared” so I have already written (of course) the theme song they could use.

Note: Sing to the tune of The Brady Bunch. If you cannot remember said tune, click the link above to listen to it on YouTube. See original lyrics below before reading the ones I wrote:

Original Brady Bunch lyrics:

Here’s a story,

of a lovely lady,

Who was bringing up three very lovely girls.

All of them had hair of gold,

Like their mother -

The youngest one in curls.

Here’s a story,

Of a man named Brady,

Who was bringing up three boys of his own,

They were four men,

Living all together,

Yet they were all, alone.

Till the one day when the lady met this fellow,

And they knew it was much more than a hunch,

That this group might somehow form a family,

That’s the way we all became the Brady Bunch.

The lyrics for my reality show:

Here’s a story,

Of a lovely lady,

Who was bringing up three very lovely girls,

All of them had hair,

As did their mother,

And all of them had curls.

Here’s a story,

Of a woman named Heidi,

Who was bringing up three children of her own,

They were four people,

Living all together,

In their Kansan home.

Till the one day that these two ladies said hello,

And they knew it was much more than a hunch,

That if ever they were to live in the same country,

They would become the lesbian Brady Bunch.
