The dogs seem like they know something is up--my trip to Hawaii is in two days. They seem clingier than usual, which when it comes to Edsel, one might wonder how he could be MORE clingy without climbing inside my soul. The past few mornings I've woken up and they are spooning me on either side. Which, hey! The South! In late July! Please, dogs with fur, everyone please press up against me! Thanks.
I've literally washed every item of clothing I own, and now I'm deciding what to pack. Last night I got up with Ned/...friend to see To Catch a Thief at the old movie theater in town, and I practically had on a ballgown. "You look...nice," said Friend Ned ("Friend Ned." heeeeee), eyeing my hoop skirt and taffeta. "I had to wear something I knew I wasn't gonna wear to Hawaii," I told him, swishing my skirts through the theater with my elbow-length gloves.
To Catch a Thief was fun to watch. It's another Hitchcock movie (they're having a whole thing with Alfred Hitchcock at that theater this summer) and this time I got to look at Grace Kelly, which I like to do. Ironically there was a whole scene where she's careening through narrow hilly streets in the Riviera in her car, which was a little too close to home, really. Not that I'm over here blogging at you from the Riviera. Although you do often hear people call Greensboro The Riviera of the South.
After the movie, Ned said, "Who do you think was better looking, Cary Grant from last week or Rock Hudson from this week?"
"Rock HUDSON?" I asked, incredulous. "We just sat there for two hours and watched Cary Grant."
"No we didn't. That was Rock Hudson," said old Siskel and Ebert, over there.
Thank god for iPhones, which enabled me to whip out details of the movie STARRING CARY GRANT, who come to think of it was probably also mentioned in the marquee we were in front of.
Rock Hudson was just one hot gay guy, though, wasn't he? I wonder if eventually we'd have finally gotten the gay vibe from him had he NOT died of AIDS. Who do you think is hotter? Rock Hudson has more of a manly man thing, but Cary Grant was just so elegant. And I know Cary Grant allegedly liked him the menfolk, too, but he also liked women, which would give us all a better chance.
Oh! And while I'm up asking you questions, the woman who may or may not provide me with Botox and Latisse wanted me to ask y'all something:
If you were to get on the computer with the intent of looking for a doctor in your area, and you wanted that doctor to be not a man, what specific words would you put in to Google or Bing or whatever?
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
