I use to like Margaret Cho--until I saw here latest DVD. I won't go see her anymore-she has lost it!
: )

Christina_the_wench said...

I am a Gunsmoke-watcher and Eddie lover too. Well, a younger Eddie. He has gone over the edge in recent years....

furiousBall said...

If I were made mayor of a town, I'd outlaw all forms of chocolate other than dark chocolate.

mist1 said...

I need to reread the post. Do you want to learn about French pastries or pasties? Because I can totally teach you about one of them.

Pickled Olives said...

Nice list! I remember listening to Eddie's album at my friends house! I totally identified with the homemade hamburger bit. He made me laugh and laugh!

nmj said...

ah, heartinsanfran, forgive me, but i don't do memes, it's just not my thing! mango is my favourite word, i also like to eat them, but you need a constant supply of dental floss . . . btw, i too would have had murderous feelings towards the noisy party people in your last post.

velvet girl said...

Sure, I'll do it... it'll take me a little while, but, hey, why not.

Can I tag you with Mark Leslie's Christmas lyric meme, then? It could be a meme swap. ;)


heartinsanfrancisco said...


I haven't seen it, but that's believable. Thanks for the heads up, and your visit.


True. I hated The Nutty Professor. Maybe he and Margaret Cho have a pact.


I'll vote for you. Milk chocolate does nothing for me, and white chocolate is absurd.


I didn't know you baked.

I took belly dancing lessons a long time ago, and favored pasties with tassels. I wasn't very good at it because I had no belly.


My favorite of his routines is the one about his mother's high-heeled shoe that whizzes around corners into his room and nails him every time he masturbates.


It's perfectly all right. Not everyone enjoys regressing to junior high school and listing factoids about themselves. Perhaps trading cards was your thing.


So the verse I dashed off in your comments doesn't count?

Fair is fair. You have a deal.

Thailand Gal said...

Very interesting. I did reply to the meme because I know it is difficult for me to do so. My thinking is so tangential that a questionairre like that forces me to stay focused for more than 5 nanoseconds. LOL...



Open Grove Claudia said...

I admire you. I've never been able to force a narcissist to do anything. You'll have to teach a class on that.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Glad I could help.

You did a fabulous job! If I didn't already like you, reading it would be a decisive factor.


First, you put up a mirror.

Odat said...

Great list, heart, thanks so much for sharing...btw, do you use that spiney mullusk thingy as a weapon????


heartinsanfrancisco said...


No. I have two among my vast collection of shells. They are fragile and I love them.

It would have to be a real life-or-death situation to call them into play as weapons of defense. Or offense. They WOULD make pretty good one-time use throwing stars, now that you mention it.

seventh sister said...

Who ever over charged you would have known better if he/she had been reading your blog

heartinsanfrancisco said...

7th Sis,

No kidding. I'm tough, huh?

After all my girding of loins, they weren't there. Now I have to psych myself up all over again tomorrow.

It isn't easy being tough.

kerrianne said...

Number twelve is my favorite. :)

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I especially like the self-doubt part.

Thank you for coming by! Your blog is fun and very pretty.

Crankster said...

Thanks for being such a good sport. The spiny mollusk looks cool as hell.

I wish I could fake affection. I really can't do it at all.

d~ said...

Tag me! Tag me!

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I didn't think so. I like that in a person.


Welcome back, stranger.

Of course you're tagged. Please do either or both of these memes.

saby said...

heyyyy STAR
u here too?

watch out for STAR

she is les

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Can't we all play nicely together?

curmudgeon said...


I used to watch that with my dad every week. It was 'our' show. I friggin' love it still.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Me, too! Matt Dillon was really cute, and I wanted to be Miss Kitty when I grew up. She was totally cool, even if she was a hooker.

I checked myself in the bathroom mirror regularly for signs that I was beginning to look like her. (I never found any.)

An explosive said...

I love LUCY... and always will! Oh and Little House on the Prarie too... Eddie Murphy is hysterical I love Robin Williams just because he's nuts! chai (MMMM...))) ~M

heartinsanfrancisco said...

My heart,

Come on over. We'll rent some DVD's and watch old shows.

Do you like your popcorn buttered or plain?
