Paging Mr. Herman

When I started this blog, the whole point was not to "blog" in the typical sense. But I recently read an article online that inspired me. So, if you are wondering what direction this post will take I will first say I almost entitled it "Wait, They Don't Love You Like I Love You." So, if there are any Pee-wee haters out there, you may want to skip this site and go straight to www.thomaskinkade.com.

I love Pee-wee Herman/Paul Reubens in an undefinable way. A certain friend was once confused about one of her professors. She said, "I'm not sure if I him to be my father, my boyfriend or if I just want to be him." This nicely sums up my adoration for the man(-child), the myth and the legend.

For those of you (probably my grandmother) who shrug Pee-wee off as a pervert I say, "Get over it." The past is the past and you may want to visit http://www.annegeddes.com/ instead of read this entry. Pee-wee's Playhouse is everything good about my childhood. I feel like everyday I quote Pee-wee or visualize Pterri sleeping (the cutest thing I have ever seen I swear to g-d). When I learned last summer that Cartoon Network was bringing back the show, I was as excited. How excited? I was as excited as the day (when I was 7-8) when my dad told me there was going to be a Cartoon Network. "You mean, I can turn it on at midnight and they will STILL be showing cartoons?" Even today I watch the show and laugh like I did when I was 5. There is something so magical about the boy who never grew up and lives in a magical playhouse full of talking furniture, tiny dinosaurs, and cute robots. Pee-wee is basically the impish older brother I never had but always wanted.

One day, I hope to meet the man himself, shake his hand (and maybe get in a hug ;) ) and ask him to marry me.

Senator Clinton,
I am in LOVE with this top. Where did you get it? Who makes it? If you tell me, I will vote for you in the primary and not Obama, Kerry or Edwards (or McCain even!). I promise...

Just Say "No"!

2007 is going to be a good year (and if it’s not God and I have to talk). I have a few goals for this year:
1) Get a real tan
2) See Sufjan Stevens
3) Go on tour

I will keep everyone posted on my progress of these goals through out the year. I am also making a promise to my family and friends that I will NOT fall in love on tour this year. JUST SAY NO.

I Need More Megapixels

I bought this dress a month ago knowing I had nowhere to wear it. Mom suggested a funeral, with a shawl. Not a bad idea but here is what I thought of.

Movie Script Ending

Okay so look...I don't normally blog about my "feelings" or whatever because let's be honest, emotional blogging is for losers. But there is something that happened two days ago that has really affected me.

The O.C. has been cancelled!!!!!! Okay so maybe I haven't made time for the show since it was good two seasons ago and I was never obsessed enough to have a poster in my apartment (Peter and JM) but I reazlied that without the O.C. we would never have the beautifully quirky and lovable Seth Cohen. Jewish and Gentile girls loved Mr. Cohen (Hello, Chrismukkah!) for many reasons. Here are a few:

  1. Seth is a hot nerdy boy who loves comics.

  2. Smart. Seth is probably in all honors classes except for maybe Math.

  3. Has the best parents in the world.

  4. Witty and has perfect comedic timing.

  5. Curly hair.

  6. Gets along with his "brother."

  7. Sensitive (I will also accept "emo").

  8. Seth is the guy we all thought that if only we went to the same school, could be our boyfriend.

Now it's time to get serious. We need to be honest and state the real reason we love Mr. Cohen is for his love of Death Cab for Cutie. Before Seth, DCFC was a band hipsters and college kids listened to when they broke up with someone or wanted to remember what falling in love was like. Thanks to Seth (or maybe Josh Schwartz who is probably a real life Seth) everyone, including my supervisor at work knows Death Cab. Death Cab was always destined for greatness and they really owe it all to Seth. Too bad Rooney never got the same break (God I was obsessed with them).

Goodbye, Seth. We know whatever path you take in life it will be filled with comics, jokes and probably Transatlanticism.
