Pieces of Wisdom: Your Five

Marvin gets up two hours before I do. Tallulah stays right in bed with me, with her head on my neck, as she is not a morning person. Edsel, however, bounds right up and begins following Marvin like he's interesting.

Now, Marvin does let him out right away, but the thing is, he does not go out WITH Edsel ("Too cold," says Marvin) and I have the feeling that Edsel often sniffs around and plays and does not, you know, lay some cable or whatever. The REASON I have this feeling, and call me Angela Lansbury, is because I get up and find a lovely log in the back room many mornings.

Marvin and I have discussed this ad nauseum. We have placed a picturesque and trendy orange tarp on the place Edsel goes back there. You'll find this look in the latest designer magazines. It's quite welcoming.

This morning I heard Marvin go into the bathroom and Edsel clicking and making puppy noises. "He's wandering around," I warned Marvin.

"You can clean it when you get up," he said, shutting the door.

Marvin's funeral is on Saturday. His body has been donated to science, as they wanted to examine his gall. Also, I have already been found not guilty by a jury of other puppy owners.

Which leads me to today's Pieces of Wisdom topic. Let's say you could, you know, Do It with any five celebrities who were not your Internet microcelebrity husband who may or may not be annoying. Who would they be?

This idea originated with the show Friends, because they all discussed once which celebrities they'd sleep with and then in real life they all of course went out and did so. This will probably not happen to any of us.

Send me your list of five, and tomorrow I will list the most interesting or the ones I see the most often. For example, I know I will hear so many, "I just have to have that Sebastian Cabot." Also, you all know Faithful Reader Siren likes for me to show the erase board on Wednesday, so could someone say they want to sleep with the erase board?

Without further ado, because I just DID my hair, here are my five:

Bee-gees-gibb-420x0
Barry Gibb in 1979. Yes, you're totally allowed to go back in time. And shut up about Barry Gibb.

Jude-law-picture-1 Jude Law. Why doesn't he call me?

ActorJonHamm_Cohen_56860026 John Hamm from Mad Men. Hello.

Jfkjr
JFK Jr. in 1993 — although this photo is not from 1993. I just wanted to show you he even looks hot with a shark tooth necklace.

Rr Robert Redford in 1974. A classic.

Okay, give me yours.

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  3. Now see, I would like to have Johnny Depp come over and, I don’t know, paint my house? Mow my lawn? But I don’t want him to TALK (because, OMG, painful with the agony over choosing every exact word) or smoke. And Robert Pattinson I would just like have hang around like a piece of art, again, not smoking (ew). I just want to look at them. But my five still stand.

    I cannot look at Harry Connick, Jr. anymore without seeing him as his serial killer persona from the movie CopyCat. He had bad teeth and pock marks and a lobotomy haircut. I used to love him but it ruined it for me. I can still listen to him, just not look at him.

  26. Okay I know you all have been staying up wondering “When is The Chief going to post the rest of her list?!?” So here I am and then you can go to bed.
    The remaining spots on my top 5 would go to: Salma Hayek and Rachel Weisz (who I can’t believe I almost forgot because she might actually beat out Meryl for the very top spot).
    Honorable mention to: Claudia Christian (who would probably make the top 5 if I could have her as Ivanova), Queen Latifah, Reese Witherspoon, Jacqueline Kim (fell in love with her as Lao Ma on Xena), Laura Linney, and Mary-Louise Parker.
