Thursday (8/14/08) 10:33am - ... wherein Peter posts a silly answer to a silly question.

For a while, I had an account on consumating, a social networking site that has since closed down.  Every week they'd have a question-of-the-week for people to answer, and users could pose their own questions for the community.

I was going through some old text files, and found I'd composed a reply to the question "What TV show would you write yourself into, and what role would you play?"[1] -- but I'd never posted it.

Oh, I would so write myself into Arrested Development.

*clears throat* 
So, I would be an investigator for the SEC.  And let's face it, if I worked for the SEC, I would be all kinds of bitter, and probably delight in being something of a bastard.  I mean, the show never really had a moustache-twirling villain to oppose the family.

I figure I'd be one of those guest stars who appear in three or four episodes, and I could be played by some cool TV actor who's slightly out of the limelight.  (Kevin McDonald, maybe?  It'd be fun to hear him affect a sardonic Kentucky drawl.)

Example Episode:  "SEC's Appeal"
hujhax picks up Blendin's collection of George-Michael's drawings, which includes a sketch of George, Sr.'s hideaway in Cabo. 

In the 'on the next...' segment, I get taken off the Bluth case, and sent off to investigate Halliburton.  (See?  A happy ending for everybody.)

[1] I'm paraphrasing, because I don't remember the exact question.

Man, I'd love to be part of that wacky family, just because it's wacky enough to be fun.
