I once saw an interview with Robin Williams in which he was asked where he gets his material for his stand up routines. He stated that he lives in NYC and all he has to do is walk out of his door and within five minutes he has an entire routine.
Inspiration is everywhere - I have this neighbor who drives a butter cream Austin Mini convertible. Her hair is the same color as her car, but even better, so is her standard poodle's. She is tall and stately and elegant, as is her dog. When you catch a glimpse of them riding in their convertible, well , it is a visual bonanza.
