Okay, so my list revision has been the topic of much MUCH discussion around the Embassy here (yes, you can rest easy... We're here on the front lines of democracy here!) And we ended up in a HUGE debate (and luckily Josh was not here for this as I am sure we would be in a ginormous fight right now - I'm already mad at him for the things I IMAGINED he would say if he were there....AND IT WAS NOT GOOD PEOPLE! Not good at all!
HOW DARE HE!?! The people in my head have totally talking about this ALL DAY!
So, anyway - the debate was on...there were those in the Daniel Craig camp - pointing out that you can't just throw away 5 mos of him being your Plan B because of a really bad movie - I conceded that Layer Cake was still an AWESOME movie and I would totally turn to drug dealing if I thought I could work with Daniel Craig....
However, (as I mentioned to one or two of you guys in my email comments) I have been harboring a long-standing infatuation with nerdy republican appearing men. Men like Bill Nye the Science Guy and Stephen Colbert.
I do love nerdy guys who look like they can do math. However, let me be perfectly clear on this point -- I don't ever want them to TALK about math or do math in my presence...this stipulation is a deal breaker -- Just look like you can do math. No less, no more.
But I digress...
So the discussion went kinda like this:
Man #1: I don't understand this "list" concept. What is the point? Those people will never like you. Why are we talking about this? I have a meeting to prepare for...
Me: This is IMPORTANT! Will you focus Please!?!? My God Man!
Paul: Madelyn Khan is on my list. Kate Winslet is also on my list.
Me: Paul! Madelyn Khan is dead. She is using up valuable list space. You need to redo your list.
Man #1: This is a trap. Don't fall for it.
Man #1's wife: I think you should keep Daniel Craig and just add Stephen Colbert. Stephen is not coming to Sudan. He never leaves NYC.
Man #1: I have to go to a meeting.
Me: What if I put Edward Cullen down and didn't tell Liz?? Would she find out? PAUL!?!?!
Man #1's Wife: Come on! It's not a trap!! It's fun. You just make a list and we both agree and it's fine.
Me: Josh agreed to my list - although technically, he has not approved Stephen Colbert. I will raise that with him tonight.
Man #1's Wife: (annoyed) Just PICK someone - this is fun!
Man #1: It's dumb. It's a trap.
Me: What about Hugh Jackman. He's kinda hot?
Paul: I am keeping Madelyn! I might meet her in Heaven and don't want her to think I dumped her. This will pay off in the long run, you'll see.
Man #1's wife: JUST PICK SOMEONE!
Man #1: FINE! I'll pick Sara, John's wife; your sister's friend from college..what was her name? and the lady who works for USAID, the new one whose husband is kinda weird. There! Happy Now!?
Me: Excuse me, I got a meeting. I'm late.
Paul: Is that my phone!?
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
