Name a handful of women you’d like to have lunch with. Not as a group, but one at a time. Like your own Charlie Rose session. With food. Catered, of course.
Let’s make this about women with some celebrity. Otherwise, we’d just put each other on the list .
Aimee Mann: I love her lyrics, narratives, melodies and harmonies. And I have done so since her big-hair days of ‘Til Tuesday.
America Ferrara: I probably just love her Ugly Betty character, but I’d like to see if she is as grounded and content with herself as Betty is.
Condoleezza Rice: While I admire her for her intelligence, determination, and talent, I would love to talk with her once she leaves her current job to see if I could get the inside scoop. And find out if she has any regrets. And I’d like to play a piano duet with her.
Carol Burnett: she and Gilda Radner make me laugh. Hysterically. I’d love to sit across a table from both of them. I’d like to ask each how she reconciles joy and sorrow.
Sarah Jessica Parker: What can I say? The Sex and the City marketing blitz has gripped me, like millions of others. There is just something magnetic about SJP. I’d like to try to find out what it is. I wonder, though, if I could handle the pressure of dressing for the occasion.
I’m sure there are more, and the list could be completely different on another day. But I’ll stand by these until the next time.
So if you’re looking for a post idea in the near future, write up your own Ladies & Lunch. And leave your link in the comments below. I’ll keep a running list of players at the bottom of this post.
Do you have a favorite something you rave about? A lemon you’d like to warn others to avoid? Write up a review for All Thumbs. And see what Chicklet and I have to say on everything foot fashion to phones.
