I promise not to devote this post to the word vagina, but I do feel like I need to pay regular homage to the word and the genitalia since it now refers so many people to my blog…my blog that I neglect terribly. So, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll try to seamlessly allude to the vagina in some way in every post from now on. Or maybe not. Anyway, in case you were wondering how to write it in Persian, here it is: مهبل.
On to less important things! Back in January I explored my questionable habit of talking about my mom and the people/places/things she likes with too much frequency. Then yesterday I realized that I’ve been neglecting to tap into the flip side: things she doesn’t like!
It came up while on the phone with her the other day. I mentioned that I had watched Moonstruck for the second time in three months the night before, and how much I’d enjoyed the experience. And that’s when she declared, “I don’t like Cher.” It wasn’t said offhandedly either. It was said in a tone that implied some sort of deep disgust and disapproval with the woman. I’ll have to investigate.
Myself, I’m kind of indifferent about Cher. I remember it was awkward when she guest starred on “Will & Grace.” And I remember being exposed to all sorts of biographical information on her when Sonny Bono died. How she used to have terrible stage fright. How the light rock favorites radio stations love to play her songs (especially “The Shoop Shoop Song”). How she has long hair. Stuff like that.
Anyway, Nicholas Cage’s performance in the clip below blows my mind. I want to memorize the lines, dress up in an apron, chop off part of my hand, and recreate his performance because it looks like he’s having that much fun. His character is just insane (I especially like the “HUH? SWEETIE?” part). God, it’s sexy. And, it’s a little tragic. Nowadays Nicholas Cage is all whored out in those Disney action-adventure movies meant to rape families of a hard-earned 50 bucks. Also, I worry about his gaunt face and rapidly thinning hair. I know there’s that whole aging process thing, but what happened to this dude:
Hmm. I didn’t know Cher was so feisty! An illuminating conversation with Sonny, Cher, and Dave:
