Bathing with Caesar

Oh sure, just 'cause I'm not in town for GBNY 2, I get tagged. Okay. Fine.

These are the instructions, as indicated at the barn:

Said meme takes its name from Mel Brooks' A History of the World (Part I), and, upon receiving it, one is supposed to list five things that one's circle of friends or peer group is wild about, but that one can’t really understand the fuss over. Quoth Caesar, "Nice. Nice. Not thrilling . . . but nice.

So let's play ...

1. 'Til the Cows Come Home. Oh, wait .. that's just mean ....

I shall start again.

1. Kylie -- I’ve tried. I really have given her a go, our patron saint of Aussie midgets and overproduced vocals . I’ll even sing along with some of her (I do have a sweet spot for “Better the Devil You Know”). But like so many others (Skankalera included), she’s meant to be heard and not seen. So.Not.Sexy.

2. I (Don’t) Love Lucy -- Stupid, over the top slapstick. Like The Three Stooges. Not my cup of chamomile.

3. Fizz -- I’ve never been a big champagne fan, but people over here seem to love it. I’d rather drink good vodka or a stellar glass bottle of bordeaux. If want I bubbles, I’ll have a splash of soda in my Ketel and sit in a jacuzzi.

4. Patti Lu Pone -- maybe it’s because I was too young not around to have seen her in Evita. It’s not that I actively dislike her (hey Gwynneth), but I just don’t understand all the hoopla. All that bravado and nary a consonant. Blahever (although she would have been an amazing Mama Rose).

5. Will Ferrell -- another Jim Carrey who just annoys the bejeezus out of me. I like funny. A lot. But stupid, sophomoric, let’s-bust-through-an-envelope-just-for-the-sake-of-getting-a-dumb laugh grates on my last gay nerve (the little one at the tip of my left pinkie, that I hardly ever use). On the other and, I totally giggle at the “Dude, .... Sweet” routine. Maybe it’s cause Sean William wants to kiss me and Will just kind of skeeves me.

Interesting note to self: People bother you more than things. Hmm, maybe that's something to work on.

I think I’ll tag three of of my favorite cyberwriters ... Chris because she is the queen, Jodi because I miss her terribly, and Glittering Lee because I have a crush on his blog and he makes me laugh.
