For the Grape Escape


One of film's greatest writers, directors, producers is Frederico Fellini. He had the imagination of a genius, attitude of a child, and words of a sage -- to live spherically; not from one point of view, but with an open mind.

Love this quote: "A different language is a different vision of life."

My favorite: "There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life."

Buona giornata!

Well I think the day was a success even though all the *guests* were all over my agent ~Pierce. He'll need to go back to Basic Training tomorrow. Since you'll be on your on until the next mission I will leave you with the following information decide to accept a position on our next detail:

As an Agent of Cha Cha Security, you must work under these guidelines to be an effective operative:

Protect your identity at all costs, never de-mask during a mission, don't get followed home or to identifying vehicles, do not wear any clothing or items that may aid in identifying you.

Stay cool. Stay cool, especially when harassed. You are an ambassador of Anonymous. Although individuals trying to disrupt your mission will get on your nerves, you must not lose your temper. Doing so will threaten the mission and tarnish the reputation of Anonymous.

Always be across the street from the object being protested.
In the absence of a road, find another natural barrier between yourself and the target of the protest. Doing so will make it more difficult for individuals hostile to your cause to come and harass you.

Stay on public property. You may be charged for trespassing if you do not.

No violence, our missions are not "hot".

No weapons. This is a psy-op mission; you will not need weapons to complete your objectives. Play with their minds!

Anonymous is legion. Never be alone. Isolation during a mission marks you as a target for handlers who wish to provoke an angry reaction from you and other friendlies.

Bring water. A dehydrated, thirsty Agent is not a useful Agent.

Wear good shoes. You know, those cute strapy ones you bought today in Italy will be puuuuurfect! Following these rules will assure your comfort during the mission.

Document the mission. Videos and pictures of the event may be used to corroborate your side of the story if law enforcement should get involved. Furthermore, posting images and videos of your heroic actions all over the internet is bound to generate win, exhorting other Agents to follow your glorious example. Intelligence gathered during this mission will be extremely helpful for future engagements.

If you are captured or identified, Headquarters will deny knowledge of your existence.

If enemy operatives identify you, stay calm and call a lawyer. Document any confrontations as soon as possible for legal proceedings.

The enemy is everywhere. MOLES are among our ranks so trust no one.

Now go snuggle up with your secret agent and enjoy the crackling fire and more of Museswings vintage vino!

Commander of Headquarters

I stopped by for the late movie and some popcorn! It was quite a day. A Felini movie is the perfect ending. Thank you so much for participating in the Grape Escape! It's a wonderful movie, but I am bushed! Hope I don't fall asl......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I had heard such wonderful things about La Dolce Vita and, well I do like a good movie, so I rented it. For some reason, I just couldn't get into that movie. The story wasn't drawing me in. Of course this from a woman who has a penchant for not liking Pulitzer Prize winning authors, so what do I know?

I will check out some of his other movies though. According to Internet Movie Database, he has a new one coming out in 2009.

Or should I say, he wrote a screenplay and which is just now being made into a movie.
