with friends like these . . .

So this past weekend I was at a party and I was trying to explain to some friends why I thought they'd like O Brother, Where Art Thou? and I said something like "I knew I'd like the movie from the opening scene . . . which featured a chain gang in the south and then they played the original 'Big Rock Candy Mountain.' "

To which someone said "'cuz Laurel is all about sweaty men in chains."

(i laughed and laughed. and no, i'm not!).

Meanwhile, another friend is trying to spread the rumor that I collect cardboard standups of celebrities.

And well, I find this pretty funny, too. I mean . . . talk about an inconvenient collection! And how weird would it be if people did start giving me standups?

I have one-- of Jerry Doyle as Michael Garibaldi from Babylon 5, but that was a gift. And one does not a collection make. Really! And no, he's not standing at the foot of my bed! (He's in the back of a closet, actually, at the moment).

To retaliate against this particular friend, I'm trying to spread the rumor that he collects standups, too-- of The Women of the WB.

And in a scary bit of synchronicity, a recent company party featured standups as decorations (but I missed the party). And now there's a Fabio standup that keeps moving around the building, showing up in the oddest places. And let me tell you . . . Fabio is creepy (but you knew that).

I'll lay claim to professing that you are "all about sweaty men in chains." And I will admit freely now that I was grossly mistaken.

You are, of course, all about cardboard standups of sweaty celebrities in chains.

I deeply regret my error.
