Dear Sweet Mother of Merlin...

Not to labor over long on the topic of Felicia Nimue, but I have no choice but to share this with you all... Jenny has only ever heard of FNA's oddities, while the rest of us have had the pleasure of witnessing some of them first-hand. My quest was to find a picture of the elusive subterranean lifeform, but instead I found THIS.

Who knew she was so prolific? Who knew her letters to the Editor would kick my ass? (Do read them.)

Who knew she'd been published in PLAYGIRL?

"Michael Bolton" Literally Rears His Head

I was catching up on the Divine Ms. Lisa's LJ and I found the following... so, for those of you who have only heard of "Michael Bolton" and the Congress Dance, I present you with PROOF.

Also, today's bit of hilariously disturbing information: They're making an animated "Ten Commandments." The voice of Moses? Christian Slater. The voice of God? Elliott Gould.

It's official: I want to be a casting director.

Back to BSC

It's no Gay Boys, but somehow I randomly stumbled on a blog that is apparently dedicated to discussion of Claudia's clothing choices in The Babysitters Club. I thought you'd be interested.

And it's weirdly appropriate that I found this today because...

Our first Midnight Margaritas post was unveiled one year ago YESTERDAY! Happy anniversary, biatches! I say we all leave work early and go have a glass of wine to celebrate.

Just wanted you ladies who may not follow the website done by Boobarella and Wingal's favorite Gay Boys, their superfantastic Musical Mondays the past two have been done for "The Sound of Music." And as EVERYONE knows THAT musical, I'm going to have to insist that you check the posts out. Probably easiest, once you get to the site, to click on "Musical Mondays" on the right side of the page.

I was particularly amused by the phrase: "Before the Baroness has even had a chance to call a cab, the Captain is off to get him some nun."

Wingal: Pie-maker.

Having an internetifical moment to myself for the first time in a long time, I feel it is appropriate for me to check in with all of you briefly and tell you about my new life mission... I want to make pies.

I want to be the person who shows up with a pie at a party and all the people in the room say to each other in hushed tones, "Oh, Wingal makes the BEST pies" or "Have you ever had one of Wingal's pies?" or "Please God, tell me it's one of her famous chocolate pies" or "Damn her and her fantastic shoes" (all the attention shouldn't actually be on my pies... I don't want them to be the only things I'm known for). This is all the result of seeing the movie "Waitress" with Keri Russell. Admittedly, I went to a movie starring the former Felicity with great trepidation, but I was seriously rewarded for my courage and I have to insist that you all see it just as soon as it hits your local video store. I was mesmerized not only by the numerous pie-making scenes in the film, but also by the creativity-factor involved in pie-making... they can be completely experimental and individual. And she NAMED her pies and we all know how much I love to name things (which is not to say that I'd show up to a party and introduce everyone to my pie, Bertrand Cooper, the Third). Keri's character created pies purely based on her mood and life-experiences (so you can anticipate that one of mine will be called "This Goddamned Dissertation Is Going to Be the Death of Me Pie"), and she sang a song about making pie... a song which was irremoveably carved into my brain and has been playing on repeat ever since.

It's possible, I suppose, that there was some kind of subliminal experiment involved in the making of the movie. Hmmm....

All I know is that I'm going to start making pies. And if you visit me, I'll make one and name it after you.

Boobarella Pie... it's a little like World Music...

Another vacation

I'm in need of another vacation. Just a 'quickie" if you will. Maybe a Friday to Monday. Any takers?
