Overheard last weekend

Saint: "Do you want to see a movie?"

Me: meh, but OK "Sure, what do you want to see?"

The Saint: "Is Michael Clayton still playing?"

Me: now giddy with excitement "Yes, yes, Michael Clayton!"

Saint: thoughtfully "We could see Juno."

Me: panting "Oh no, I'd see ANYTHING that has George Clooney in it! SIGH! He's dreamy."

Saint: puzzled "What about what's his name?"

Me: "Oh, I'd still totally do Sean Connery."

Precious Oldest: shrieking in horror from upstairs "MOM! You can NOT have a LIST!"

8. John Mayer
9. Luke Perry (yes, I know my 90210 obssession is unhealthy, but damn.)

I'm sure there are more, but tell Precious Oldest that all 40 somethings have The List. Hee.

I just saw Paul Rudd in person (he was shopping) and I think maybe he will now be my whole list. Okay, and Johnny Depp.

Every woman has a list...and if they say they don't..they are dirty rotten lying liers.

I saw Michael Clayton - loved it.

Shelley said...

Crap, I forgot about Johnny Depp! How could I do that?
