Just a Quickie

Mama Crash is fine. Talked to her today and the surgery went well. Thanks to all of you who sent me notes of encouragement. And yes, calling her Mama Crash is a play on Mama Cass. It's really just meant as a joke since my mom is this tiny, petite woman . . . very unlike Mama Cass. In fact, she is a younger, German/Irish version of Sophia from the Golden Girls.

Of course, that makes me Dorothy, which is sadly appropriate on so many levels.

So, pretty boring weekend, other than worrying about mom.

Saturday my plans fell through again, so I hung out at the house all day. That evening, I went to see Bright Young Things which was rather good. I need to read some Evelyn Waugh one of these days.

And here is a picture of my crush for this movie. Sadly, the photo is not from Bright Young Things, rather it is from Children of Dune. But still, James McAvoy is hot. I can't wait to see him as Mr. Tumnus in The Chronicles of Narnia. I imagine he won't be particularly hot in that movie, however. As I recall, Tumnus is a satyr.

Sunday, I just hung out at the house, reading and watching tv.

Since I was anxious yesterday, I had a hard time sleeping. Due to the lack of sleep and my physical therapy appointment this morning, I'm wiped. I may try to leave early today.

What are you thinking? Of course he'll be hot as a satyr! Satyrs are usually shirtless and are hung like, well, like horses.

Hot Toddy: It seems to me that Satyrs should be hung more like goats... although I have to say I am not a connoisseur of the livestock tackle assortment...

Crash: you know, I was trying to think of who you reminded me of; I would've immediately thought of Bea Arthur if David wasn't even MORE like her than you...

Aren't satyrs half goat? I can't wait for Narnia. Hung like a goat. Hm. Nah.

Glad to hear Mama Crash is doing well.

"San Francisco, 1965... a young German/Irish girl sets out on adventure by joining a local folk vocal quartet. Fame beckons. Only mere days later, she is kidnapped by rabid flower children and wisked away to a commune in South Carolina. She is forced to manufacture paper bongs while listening to the Strawberry Alarm Clock's 'Incense and Peppermints' 24 hours a day. Meanwhile, distraught over the loss of their alto vocalist, the quartet hires a 320 lb. unemployed truck driver from the suburbs of San Jose named Leroy Cass Elliott. They dress him in drag, rename him 'Mama Cass', and teach him to lip sync to the recordings Mama Crash originally made, hoping no one will know the difference. Fame ensues for the group, as Mama Crash's musical career comes to an untimely end."
