A Jerry Maguire Moment
By woodjr on Dec 14, 2006
No, you don't complete me. You don't even need to show me the money--at least not in the way you think.
My Jerry Maguire moment was all about making a spectacle of myself, screaming into a phone while others were in earshot. In Jerry's case, Rod Tidwell was making him scream the now-immortal line, "Show me the money!" and Jerry's whole office was wondering what had possessed him. In my case, it was the soon-to-be-immortal line, "JAVAAAAAAA!" and only my wife was around to wonder what had possessed me.
You see, the folks behind Elf Yourself created a pretty slick system where you phone-in the monologue for your elf. So for my creation of Sun's Chief Elvish Officer (or should we call him Javanathan?), I really was on the phone in our basement screaming and yelling like a madman. And my wife really was wondering how to get me some professional help.
