Is that it is a LOTTA work when you have to change it....and I gotta tell you - I have to change my list.
So remember how I was telling you all about how much I heart Daniel Craig and how I put him on my list because I was sure that if he decided to show up in Sudan (becuase it seems to be every stupid celebrity's cause du jour) how I might actually be able to talk to him?? Remember that??
And remember how I made it my life's work to meet every manager of the five star hotels in Khartoum so that I would not miss it if/when he DID come to town?? Remember that??
Remember how I hadn't ever really watched Quantum of Solace (mostly because I didn't have access to TV here in Sudan and how the word Quantum kinda gives me the heebee-jeebies because it sounds too mathy??) Remember that??
Well, I was sick today (Sudan got me!) with a cold and in between the small coma I lapsed into over the whole damn weekend, I watched the Daniel Craig extravaganza, sure that I would love him even more.
I did not (what the hell was that?? What even happened there?? WHY were we watching that and WTF did he drink at the end? Shit! I swear I was paying attention, and I DO have at least an average IQ - Hey! I conned people into thinking I passed the foreign service exam AND that I read The Economist - when in reality there was a People magazine tucked down inside there --and I hated it. So now I'm contemplating my new choice for my list.
This choice is important. I bumped George Clooney for Daniel Craig when I saw George get all preachy and judgey about Sudan when he doesn't even really understand all the issues at play. (I really hate that. Do your homework man!) So now what??
No matter how obsessed I am, I can't put a 17 year old vampire from Forks, Washington on my list (a) because he's not real; (b) because I think my mom would totally disown me; (c) Liz and I would have a knock-down brawl over Edward; and (d) I think that might be illegal and I could potentially lose my job.
SO WHO SHOULD I CHOOSE TO REPLACE DANIEL. Now I realize some of you who still heart Daniel may try to dissuade me from dumping him - I mean, Daniel and I have been dating and he has been my Plan B for like 5 mos now - but after I saw the Daniel Craig Popsicle posted on Captain Dumbass' Us & Them, and then compounded by that movie - I knew he was not for me.
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
