Google Down the Line!: Serena considers jabbing the streaker, writing a "dramedy" (oh crap)

Serena considers jabbing the streaker, writing a "dramedy" (oh crap)

Like Rafa, Serena Williams has been blogging during her time at the Aussie Open but for USA Today and she just posted her lastest entry for the paper's website.

The 3-time champ discusses the shock and hilarity that ensued when a streaker took the court during her doubles match with sister Venus:

Well I was shocked, and quite confused. I did not know what to do. I did not know if I should try some of my new left jab, one, two, three combos that I learned in boxing class or if I should throw him my towel. In the end I decided against the left jab, remembering what the french say Gardez votre sang froid— meaning remain calm. That was a full task in itself! The whole crowd was roaring with laughter, as was I and the people we were playing against in doubles. In the end we laughed it off and finished with a memorable win.
HA! No doubt I'd be afraid of staring down ReRe's left jab combos especially in the buff. Who knows where she might aim those guns. That streaker seriously lucked out.

Anyway, she goes on to mention the retirement of Victoria Azarenka during their fourth rounder and how she wanted to comfort her with a "big hug". Sweet.

But here's where things get a little sketchy:
Off the court I have a new goal. I love writing, and for quite some time now I have wanted to write a screenplay. Before, I wanted to write a script for a movie, but now my goals have changed. I have decided I would love to write a "dramedy" — a mixture of a comedy and a drama. I think my goals changed because of my recent obsessions with Desperate Housewives, Sex and the City and Lipstick Jungle. I spend most of my spare time on my HP computer surfing the Internet. I figured I should trade in my remarkable ability to waste time into my ability to write. I have nothing to lose. Don't laugh, because one day I will be at the Golden Globes accepting an award. I am currently reading this booked called Writing a TV drama Series. Venus bought it for me! I'm so excited!!!
Did ReRe just say she's going to be writing more and not less or am I having a nightmare? Good grief. She promised she would stop scaring us with her self-styled "prose" and do more vlogging and here she is winning a Golden Globe. It was all a lie damn it.

I guess if ReRe thinks she can be a fashion designer with 2 years of schooling then all bets are off.

Godspeed ReRe.

  1. "I figured I should trade in my remarkable ability to waste time into my ability to write"

    Damn if only I could do the same

    *stares at report card and cries* :)

    Seriously though, I love her. Her self-love is either extremely annoying or extremely endearing and hilarious. For me it's the latter. I'm surprised she said Golden Globes instead of Oscars or Emmys; she always shoots for the sky.
    I would have loved to see her take out the streaker though; he wasn't even hot. Oh well I would have missed it anyway considering that I'm unable to watch the AO.
    BTW: I lover her oh-so-subtle plug for HP.

  2. I think the biggest concern is that someone actually has an obsession with Lipstick Jungle! 0.o

  3. Serena has a goofy passion for life.

  4. OMG! I am so glad that Serena pulled through! Seriously, I can feel the ulcer forming!

  5. The thing is she might actually do it. She's very known and famous and all, so she will easily have the opportunity to meet the right people do realize her dream of writing that screenplay...

    Just as Sara said: I wish I could do the same! :*(

  6. TO realize her dream.

  7. sara/sonja: that's why i did

    obvs she should hire a ghost writer...or me.

    *pens letter to ReRe pitching my TV screenplay about tennis tours, soap opera style*

    how fun would THAT be????

  8. Oh God.... NO. Just...NO no no.

  9. rich: that would be great. it would be more hilarious if JJ is in it. can you imagine all of the medical timeout drama and the on-court splits? not to mention the mona outfits designed by JJ as well.

  10. johanne: HA!

    anon 10:52 - yeah yeah, sort of like a grey's anatomy about tennis. though i wouldn't want to torture the actors by making them wear anything jj designer - egads!

    but jj must star in it as herself, of course.
