My BloggerPal, Old Cheeser (who is neigher old or cheezzy), has spotted me out to create a list of 5 things about myself. Here goes with some cool photos I "stole" from the myspace of this really cool guy named Bud. And I can't figure out how to post a link to his site on myspace. Sorry, Bud!!

While I do love to eat scrambled eggs and omelettes --- I am unable to eat them if anyone says or I think of the word "egg" ...Yes, I have egg issues.

I know the dialog of all the characters in the following movies --- each time I watch them I have to fight myself not to scream out the dialog in camp fashion as they screen: CARRIE, A STAR IS BORN, THE WAY WE WERE, VALLEY OF THE DOLLS & MURIEL'S WEDDING. "Bill! Bill! Katie wants to keep in the line about the black market! Bill!" ...see? I can't help myself.

Because my mother forgot that she left me at the cinema --- I sat thru 4 continuous screenings of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. I hate that stupid movie. I didn't even enjoy it during the first screeing. I remember being so upset that the only other movie playing was some John Wayne thing. However, I almost opted to watch it when I realized I was about to hear "Do You Love Me" for a fourth time.

I have played "Ride A White Horse" on my iPod 351 times since October. While this might seem a bit obsessive -- it is a really great song! I do so love my Goldfrapp and require mulitple daily doeses of their glitter disco magic!

Every year from my 4th thru to my 11th year of life I insisted on sending Barbra Streisand a birthday card. My Grandmother would help me pick the card out and we would mail it to Columbia Records. And for all of those years I would receive a glossy autographed photo. I still like to pretend that they were signed by her.

Well, there are my 5 useless facts about me. I know I am supposed to assign this to 5 other people, but I don't wanna. Please do one if so inclined and if you've not done one already! I also find I'm too lazy to check my list for spellling or error. Sorry.

you're terrible, muriel.

cutest thing ever!!!!!!! i sent a letter to Olivia Newton John and received an autographed photo of her in return. I also sent a letter to Peter Reckell who played/plays Bo Brady on Days of Our Lives and received an autographed photo of him. Ah, those were the days.

i proudly know dialogue from Romi And Michelle's High School Reunion as well as Madonna's Truth or Dare. "you're not asking the question, motherf*cker."

Oh, Hot Lunch -- That is awesome! My Grandmother used to watch that show --- she called them her "stories" so I saw that one and General Hospital when there was no school. Was Bo the character who had that daddy thing working? And, I LOVE Romi & Michelle! And, who doesn't love that ear of Madonna!??!

Perhaps we should take a "poll?" ...P-O-L-L! LOL!

Matty! Thank you for the compliment and for meeting my "List" challenge!! And I don't think your list is "useless" atall, rather, it's integral to you! And now we know five more fascinating things about ya! It's all a learning curve!

The egg fact = interesting if weird! But I kind of know what you mean. I think eggs have a bit of a sickly association and sometimes I can't stomach them.

The dialogue fact = I am exactly the same re: certain movies / tv shows. So I can totally relate to what you say! For example I'm so frickin' sad I can recite the entire scene from "Dallas" in which Sue-Ellen sacks Mandy Winger. Mandy : "Sue Ellen, what are you doing?" Sue-Ellen: "Cutting you off you viper! CAME BACK TO HELP ME?? You came back to help yourself - to MY husband". Anyway I bet your powers of recall are better than mine and you can remember every single line!!

The "Fiddler" fact - hilarious! But having to sit through it FOUR times must have traumatised you severely.

The Goldfrapp fact - I can relate to liking her, though perhaps playing that track 351 times is a little ... excessive, darling. Alison Goldfrapp is one weird and wonderful lady though so I can completely understand your fixation. My own personal faves are "Strict Machine" and I love her take on "Physical".

The Babs fact - that is sooo cute. Such a devoted young fan you were! And still are, in fact, unless I am mistaken? So why aren't you still sending her cards for gawd's sakes? Worshipping a diva doesn't stop when you reach the age of 11, you know!

I think we need to do stuff like this more often. It's kinda fun eh?!

Old Cheeser -- Yes, it was fun! I love watching Dallas now but I don't know too much about it. But, I can see I would so love to quote from it in no time! LOL!

And, yes, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF was tough for me even once but 4 times was just a killer.

Well, I still so love Barbra. But, she never sends me flowers anymore so I figure I don't need to send her bday cards!

Eggs. I can't really discuss that.

Totally fabulous. And seeing View-master is rocking my world!

The only fact that I did not know was the "egg" thing. Which, they are gross, it's true. Lots of cholesterol. But they make a nice, cheap meal.

5:07 PM  
Blogger matty said...

Minge -- Yes! And, you know I had that very View Master show in Boston --- the ex got it in the divorce.
Anyway, that is a particularly cool one because there is one of those 3-D like shots where you can see the film crew hanging above Susan Dey!

Ing -- Yes. Well, for me it is never about the health. No. It is about the fact that my father used to call them chicken embryos. It forever ruined them. I can't discuss this ever again. He did the same thing to milk when he called cow tit juice. However, I've never been very fond of dairy product anyway. So, I can discuss milk. I just will not be having any.

I thought today was Thursday and now I'm all confused. Go figure.

I think every single comment I leave contains the line, "I love you Matty".

But it's TRUE!

You just... you just melt me. I love love love that you sent Babs a birthday card. That is the sweetest damn thing I ever heard.

How a mother can forget her child in a cinema and leave him there for HOURS is beyond me and my heart breaks for the child you were.

Then I look at your avatar and realise that while ONE of us is looking every fucking year of her age, the OTHER one of us , hem hem, still looks twenty five.


But I still love you. ;)

(And I went through the same thing with eggs and CAN still get squeamish about them. And milk. And a few other things, like chicken legs - gaaaaa. I have to REALLY want those chicken legs to get past the bone and tendons. Gaaa.)

Oh, Karyn. Thank you. That is so sweet. I love you, too!
