Lois Maxwell (a.k.a. Moneypenny) 1927-2007
Bond: Moneypenny, what gives?
Moneypenny: Me, given an ounce of encouragement! You never take me to dinner looking like this James. You never take me to dinner period.
Bond: I would you know, only M would have me court-marshalled for "illegal use of government property".
Moneypenny: Flattery will get you nowhere, but don't stop trying!

My toes are happy. Not since the great foot massage of '02 have my toes been so happy.
I have discovered the miracle that is sock-sizing.
Yes, you heard me. Sock-sizing. Most socks come in one size - women's. Alas, some of us have feet...say...the size of men...and women's socks are tight. They stifle. They stretch. The heels hit my arch. The ribbing leaves permanent scarring on my ankles.
So I was amazed to discover that there are some companies (thank you Hanes) that make socks for women with up to size 12 feet! Glory be!
I bought a package, and slipped a pair on...my god. They fit. My feet can bend without the sock flipping off a la Cinderella.
And my feet look normal, not like big giganto feet squeezing into baby socks. Which makes me feel good about my feet. And sexy.
Because you know what they say about women with big feet. *wink*

My friend P is watching the DVD's of 'Saved By the Bell' - the entire series.
Now don't go grabbing your hair screaming 'Why god, why?' just yet. He says he wants to relive his childhood. However, references to Screech and Slater are going to get him shot sooner or later. By me.
So I got to thinking about what DVD's would help me relive my childhood...
Here's what I came up with.
'Simon and Simon' to relive my insane crush on Parker Stevenson.
'A-Team' to relive my laugh EVERY FRIKKIN TIME the cylon walked past Dirk Benedict in the opening credits.
'Magnum PI' to relive the time when I finally figured out who Robin Masters was.
'MacGyver' to relive my eternal love for defusing atomic weapons with gum and paperclips.
'GI Joe' to relive my screaming '...and knowing is half the battle!'
'Smurfs' to relive my belief that Handy and Smurfette were meant to be together.
'Ducktales' to relive my screaming 'D-d-d-danger!"
'Silver Spoons', because really, didn't we all want that train?

I guess it makes me feel less incompetent that I can't find someone either.
