Just Another Schmuck?!

Blogging Friends.... As I sit here typing away at this computer, I'm at a loss in what, exactly, to post!! You can call it "Blogger's Block". But then again. Stories about Rose keep coming my way!! Is it the opposite of Blogger's Block, when you are simply feeling indecisive on what to write? Hmmm. Thank-you for your comments on the other day's post!! I truly appreciated them!! Something which I neglected to mention, however. I don't think of Robert Downey Jr. as being "perfect"--and his "notorious" past has very little, if not nothing, to do with that--he is merely evolving. For nobody's perfect. We are all, as Jo March--played by actress Winona Ryder--said in the Hollywood film "Little Women", "hopelessly flawed". That being mentioned. For me, this all makes Robert Downey Jr. even more wonderful!! Because you needn't be "perfect" to inspire people!! There. I got that "out of my system", as the phrase goes!!
 
"Nothing pleases me more than when somebody who was awe-inspired to be working with me realizes I'm just another schmuck that they're bored of hanging out with on a set. I love that moment. I like it when that persistent illusion is smashed." --Robert Downey Jr.
 
This quote--taken from the May 2013 issue of G.Q. Magazine--never ceases to crack me up!! Robert Downey Jr. is a self-described "schmuck". I do not see it. {Go ahead. Look up the definition of "schmuck"!! I had to!!} But then again. I am not in close proximity to the actor, either!! I don't work with him on movie sets. I am not Susan Downey, his wife. Nonetheless. Nothing pleases me more than to find true stories about Robert Downey Jr. as the absolute opposite of a schmuck!! Yes, nothing pleases me more. I've since watched a fan-made video of Robert Downey Jr. and the very special boy which I wrote about on Friday. Repeatedly. Because I am an obsessed fanatic like that!! You can find it on Tumblr. Have tissues nearby, though!! You will definitely need them!! In the video, somebody breathlessly says this. "It's his dream come true!!". Robert Downey Jr.--flanked by twain "bodyguards"--then walked toward the Beautifully Unique boy, and made a hand gesture to him, for encouragement. Not that he needed any!! The brave boy--who I still think has cerebral palsy--practically ran, walker in tow, dragging behind his feet, dressed as Iron Man, toward Robert Downey Jr.!! Robert Downey Jr. immediately crouched down to be on his special fanatic's level. Robert Downey Jr. then conversed with the boy one-on-one, which is ideal for many C.P. kids. Both posed as cameras and cell-phones snapped pictures, meanwhile smiling big. The two looked at an Iron Man comic book-like article together. Which, of course, Robert Downey Jr. autographed. Robert Downey Jr. then handed back to his young fanatic's Mom and/or caregiver the signed comic book-like item. Soon, Robert Downey Jr. was off on his way. I do believe that Robert Downey Jr. spent more time with this unique boy than everybody else. Bless. His. Heart!! I wonder if Robert Downey Jr. wrote some special message on that comic book-like article? "Just another schmuck"? I respectfully disagree. Remember. Robert Downey Jr. didn't have to do that. So many celebrities, I'm afraid, would overlook this boy, ignoring him completely, and greet other "normal" fanatics, meanwhile leaving the child heartbroken. Not Robert Downey Jr.....

I usually get blogger's block between one post and the next - sometimes I think 'what am I going to write about next week, what!'
Robert Downey Jr sounds like a very nice person to me.

Thanks for the comment, Friend!!
You know what? I used to love the challenge of having too many writing ideas in my head!! Lately, I've felt somewhat unmotivated..... Because I NEED another Writing Project!! Hmmm. I suppose that I should discipline motivation's return? Hee, hee, hee.... ;-D
