mirror mirror on the wall....

Who is the fairest of them all?
The other day my adorable and ever sweet and sexy peanut brittle put on the Cowboy Junkies for dinner. I remembered I had seen that the Cowboy Junkies come to Ithaca in February. As Margo sweetly sang BLUUUUUE MOOOOOON I told my peanut brittle:
"Sweetie, don't take this wrong, but there is something about Margo Timmins voice that, well, drives me wild. And dear sweet darling, please don't be jealous, but Suzanne Vega and...." she interrupted "and Kate Bush too?"
" NONONO I like Kate Bush, but SHAWN COLVIN honey. And of course..." I gasped and grabbed my water "KIM GORDON OF SONIC YOUTH".

If Missus G can admit her innocent crushes on Paul Newman and that guy with the lank hair who did the pirate movies, and if Farmer's Wife can dream of Val Kilmer and Cheri can lust after her own iphone...
then I can admit my great appreciation for certain female songwriters. The list here, of course, is merely my top 4 favorites...


Margo Timmins

Suzanne Vega

Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth

Shawn Colvin

Ah, but there is the difference: Mrs. G. does not wax eloquent about mancake in the presence of her Real Man, Mr. G.
I am pretty sure no man wants to hear about other men from his wife. And I can assure you that women do not want to hear about other women from their husbands.

You are treading on dangerous ground there, Gary!

(But have you heard Shawn Colvin's Christmas/Lullaby cd? Absolutely wonderful and a staple at my house in December.)

My word verification is "bless"

OH I am quite open with her about swooning under their singing voices, yes indeedy, and the missus REALLY likes listening to Michael Hutchens of INXS and of course Mick.....
naturally we prefer singing to each other best of all and always...

LOL - my hubster knows I would dump him in a heartbeat for Johnny Depp or Gerard Butler.

But we also made a pact that whoever screws up the marriage has to take the neurotic peeing cat so I have a feeling neither of us is going anywhere with anyone. :-)

I think it's funny when Michael tells me about his celebrity crushes... nothing wrong with that!! Heidi Klum and Kate Beckinsale for him. Christian Bale, Johnny Depp and Simon Baker for me. :) We all need back-ups, right? :)

Have you noticed they all look alike?
