Apparently Hollywood is reading our blogs because there is a new pilot being tested according to Variety.
The show has already been picked up by Fox. It's called the Return of Jezebel James, starring Parker Posey. The logline: "When a single successful children's book editor learns she is physically unable to conceive, she is forced to ask her estranged sister to carry her baby for her." Really? Forced? There's no one else in the world who can be her surrogate? Truly, regardless of that last sentence, I am approaching this with an open-mind mostly because I love Parker Posey. And because they just may portray infertility well on this show. What is the law in America? Innocent until proven guilty?
Last night we were watching the Colbert Report (where, of course, he mentioned the ice cream and fertility study just as I was considering whether or not I was too cold for a heaping bowl of coffee chip) when a commercial came on for a Bahamavention.
What, you ask, is a Bahamavention? Apparently, vacations aren't being prescribed solely for infertility and baby-making anymore (because, as you know, if you go on a vacation, you will get instantly pregnant. Instantly. Even if your husband has a zero sperm count. Even if you produce no progesterone. Hell, I've even heard that it works if you go on vacation and you've already ovulated. Vacations are that powerful. You simply ovulate a second time that cycle the moment you start sipping that first margarita. And if it's CD1, your period miraculously ends immediately, your lining grows to perfect thickness, and your follicles pop out eggs like your ovaries are a steaming bag of jiffy pop).
Take a little look right here: Bahamavention.
I'm just sending this out as a public service annoucement to all the crazy infertile women out there who are beating up soccer coaches in your grief over not having children. Just go on a vacation. Really, you'll see how your stress if affecting everyone else and you'll come back rested and knocked up (insert condescending laughter here). It's really that easy. I'm surprised that you're spending so much money on IVF. Vacations to the Bahamas are much more affordable. And you not only get a baby, but you get a fantastic tan.
