My Freebie List

Well, my big angst today is that I am angst-less. Thus I have nothing significant to write about/process publicly.

So, instead, I’m going to do a list and invite you to do the same. Remember that episode in Friends when Ross approaches Isabella Rosellini for a date, even though he is involved with Rachel at the time? Isabella had been in the running on Ross’ “freebie list” (of celebrities one could sleep with without raising the ire of the significant other) but she didn’t make the lamination cut.

So, I’ve been thinking about my list. Here are my five. Watch out, Honey:

1. Mike Myers. He just makes me laugh. From Dieter to Simon to Wayne and Dr Evil (but not the very lame Axe Murderer), I just chuckle thinking of him. That makes him HOT.

2. Gary Sinise. Not a fan of CSI: NY, but I find this actor otherwise captivating.

3. Robert Downey Jr. Every girl’s list needs a bad boy to save.

4. Billy Crudup. Except I think he’s short.

5. Johnny Depp. Yeah, Lori, get in line.

Not quite ready to laminate yet. Let me ruminate awhile.

So, who’s on your list??

Haiku for August 1

 A sense of sadness
The month when school doors open
More work, fewer zzzzzzzs

I woke up this morning with a touch of depression. Since forever, June and July have been my favorite months. I like the letter J, I love the brevity of the four-letter names, and I crave the warmth and freedom that ensues. Now I have to wait 10 more months for my favorite time of year to come around again.

So today I mourn the passing of June and July. I put my wistfulness to use in the Haiku Buckaroo contest. Write your own and enter (by August 10).
