journies begin with the first step

Hey that was actually fun and mood uplifting.

As seen on tarnishedhalo and kaidysoft, the "Susan is" meme:

Directions: Type "(your name) is" with the quotes, into a Google search then pick out your favorite 10 responses.
Copy, then repost your responses:

Susan is an ethical woman and is refusing to cooperate. ( go me, apparently I'm refusing to answer questions on President Clinton's involvement in some scandal)

Susan is the only Certified Tellington Touch practitioner in the state of Indiana and compliments the Tellington Touch with Acupressure and Massage.(oh yes, that's right, come to me for your stress relief.

Susan is not only beautiful but witty and charming. (*blush* you're much too kind)

Understand this: Susan is America. Some hide it better, springing it on you after the ceremony, but Susan is the rule. (holy crap, that's scary!)

SUSAN is an acronym for Smallest Univalue Segment Assimilating Nucleus. (Say what?)

"Susan is a sensitive virtuoso, and this breed is hard to come by." (Yes, bow to me in all my glory)

Susan is not taking new individual clients at this time but would love to have you join one of her groups or classes. (Yes that's right, I offer classes to learn how to be as crazy as me. You too can be Susan.)

Susan is an overwriting, memory resident, file infecting virus. ( You bitch! I am not!)

Susan is now out of jail, released in mid-December, 2001, from the federal women's prison in Dublin, CA. (I was innocent, I promise!)

Susan is even more impressive in person than she is on paper. (That's right, remember that ;))

Little ode to Craig

I worked really hard today, so I'm taking this last little bit of time before I go home to write up a little love note about Craig.

One thing that really attracts me to Craig above all other talk show hosts is his willingness to appear stupid on camera. David Letterman knows this trick well, but Craig takes it to a very human and likeable extreme. Where other shows would hire actors to play out their skits (and Craig do not start talking about your low budget ;) ), Craig goes out there and night after night does the skits and silly costumes himself. It wasn't some actor looking all goofy and hot in a sleeveless shirt pretending to be Cooter. Hell no! It was Craig "I'm look like an idiot doing this, but women still think I'm fucking hot" Ferguson. It's not an actor doing the Celebrity Grab Bag trying to talk through wax lips while pretending to be Angelina Jolee. Nope, that's my baby Craig Ferguson. And not only is he willing to do it, but he can laugh at himself at the same time and have some geniune fun with it. That quality is so lovely.

And it's not just the skits either! Coming back from a commercial break you can see Craig just getting down to a song, beating his desk like a drum, headbanging. Do I even have to bring up the "chicken dance"? I'm telling you, I'm in love with Craig because he's NOT just another star. He acts like a regular joe that's just been thrown into "minor celebrity" and I like that. I guess somewhere that tells my brain that I'd have a chance with him, but it goes beyond that. I like knowing that underneath all the cameras and lights that he's a normal, fun loving person. It makes me glow. And it makes Craig a far better host than most.

Another thing that makes him fan-fucking-tastic is his talking to the camera stuff. You know what I mean, when he turns, stares right into the camera (or "right at me" as Anne always says) and talks to his "at home" people. It's so.....involving and I can't help but melt every time. If it allows me to fool myself into believing that he knows I exist, then it's ok in my book. (and yes I know I'm obsessing again, shut up)

But by and large, the biggest thing that attracts me to Craig is his intelligence. You know he's smart. He doesn't have an author on unless he knows and enjoys their work and....wait, what's that? Authors as guests? That's right, and not just occasionally, but all the time. He appears to be very well read and has the most unusual guests, usually people that you always wanted to see interviewed but never got the opportunity. And that's how I hope to end up on his chairs one day. One day I'm going to write an amazing book and be a guest on his show, and then I'll tell him all about the crazy time when I had a website about him and wrote nasty little stories concerning he and I. lol....well maybe not in detail, but still.....back to the point, he's intelligent and I find that so sexy. I don't like dumb hosts, or ones that barely made it through the "guest information" sheet (can we get a hell yeah on that one?). I can't tell you how many times I got irked when a guest on Craig's show would flub up and would say that Craig was from anywhere but Scotland. Now come on! How can you NOT know that he's Scottish? *takes bat to guests* But Craig just grins through his teeth and waves it off. What a sweety.

He's so much nicer than me. lol.

Craigsy, Craigsy, Craigsy.

I've totally lost my train of thought, pulls bell-cord. Guess I'll get off here. Craig has a tendency to get me addled.

Now if Anne would just write back to tell us whether or not he changed into that shirt in front of the audience...*droooooooool*
