Thinking Out Loud

Entertainment and Social Issues


Of course it's a blog!

Note, the following is a completely unpaid Public Service Announcement for Delphi Forums Blogs.  Please, serve your online community and read it!!

The ongoing, current blog topic on Delphi is all about....blogs!  Who uses them, who doesn't, who reads them, who doesn't.  Since my blogs are sometimes controversial and I don't do controversies in my own forums, I stopped promoting mine in my links.  Now, I've decided for the sake of blogs to give up the controversies, unless they are blog or entertainment-related, and go back to posting a link.

So, if you're reading this now, you may be one of those who followed my link or one who regularly reads all the new updates on Delphi Blogs. Please take a minute and post a comment, not only in my blog but in the other active blogs here, so we can get an idea of who is reading and how you found us.  All the Delphi bloggers would appreciate it.

About the Author
ShowtalkMinnie Shorter never ran a major corporation, never performed brain surgery, never jumped motorcycles for a living, and never tried to join the astronaut program, but she has had almost every other job you can think of during her life.

Minnie opened her first lemonade stand on a busy Los Angeles street corner when she was seven. She and her best friend Angelina and her brother Wayne were an instant success in drought-ridden LA, and were the darlings of tourists strolling up and down the boulevards, craning to see celebrities. There was something precociously charming about Minnie, her brother, and her little dark-haired friend. Minnie soon added celebrity maps and jewelry rental to the fare offered at the stands, which by the time she was 8, she had franchised all across the greater Los Angeles area. Those franchise fees continue to pay her a dividend to this very day.

Other jobs included dog groomer, Pediatric Nurse, Screenwriter, waitress, Executive Producer (for one odd season in the early 90's on CBS,) costumer, circus acrobat, auto body painter, crop duster, border guard, best boy, caterer, and optometrist. On her 30th birthday, she decided it was time to get serious about life, and settle down. She married her fiancé of 12 years, Manfred, and adopted his four siblings from Rio de Janeiro to raise as her own.

Known as Showtalk, most assume that this nickname was given to her because of her various positions within the movie community, but in actuality, was a nickname given to her when she was 16, by a production assistant's assistant's assistant, when she would hold up cue cards for (has-been) celebrity product demonstrators at Home Shows. Show (product) Talk (about product) were the front and back sides of the cards....
