That distubs me on so many levels that I don't quite know where to start... Although I did used to put Santa hats on my busts of Mozart and Beethoven but it fell under holiday decoration!

oline said...

i like to think of it as provocative. like he went to mardi gras and did a lot of flashing. heaven help us if i ever stumble across a bust of oswald.

Bombsy said...

Is that Brutus?
Because you just got about 2,000 Bombshell points for putting bows on Brutus.

oline said...

i have indeed put bows (and pearls and rhinestones) on brutus. because can't you just totally see him rifling through portia's jewelry box before heading out to knife JC?

Meggie said...

Brutus as a transvestite... Explains a lot. Now here's the kicker--do you see him playing Tim Curry's role in Rocky Horror Picture Show? *laughs* The bustier, the garter, the high heels!

oline said...

have actually never seen that- because tim curry is second only to gene wilder in scariness. but if i were ever going to see it, seems like it would have to be at that little theatre in downtown franklin that played it every week.

nick said...

wait wait wait - you're scared of both gene wilder & tim curry? i truly have my work cut out for me here. i freakin' love tim curry.

as for brutus as a tranny... um, yeah - i'd buy that. the romans were some pervy mofos.

Meggie said...

Caro, I hate to tell you this but the Franklin Cinema no longer does the midnight showings of Rocky Horror. They are now a "family" theater. Bah, like Rocky Horror isn't a family movie.

And really the only thing that Tim Curry was scary in was Stephen King's It. Everything else is pure genius. Start with Clue. Can't go wrong with Clue.

oline said...

despite the fact that tim curry is second only in scariness to gene wilder- there's a pretty huge remove between them. tim curry i've watched. he's in the company of malkovich and walken- creepy but not distractingly so. i must have just been scarred by wonka as a kid. that and a christmas carol.

meggie- wasn't he in the 3 musketeers with our boy o'donnell? (who, incidentally, married a caroline so i think that makes him slightly more my boy than yours!)

nick said...

clearly i now have to beat the crap out of chris o'donnell. although, he just got written out of the cast of grey's anatomy... so maybe that's enough.

Meggie said...

Caro, you have no claim to O'Donnell. He is mine and mine only. I will not share him with others. I am scary possessive of him. *sighs* He's the perfect man. You have Bono. I have Bon Jovi and O'Donnell.

Nicky, he might not have been completely written out of Grey's. They left a possible opening for him to come back. He's so much better than McDreamy. But I could stare at McSteamy in a towel all day.

oline said...

our boy o'donnell just got written out of his own comeback?! nicky, take pity upon the guy. to be written out of one's own comeback is a pretty sad state of affairs.

nick said...

he had a fling with our girl meredith grey, but it wasn't to be. and to be fair - his "comeback" was that horribly bad fox legal show that was cancelled - i think - after one show. i never saw it, but it was apparently just about the worst thing ever.

as for his stint on grey's - he got about half of last season & three episodes of this season... so that's pretty decent given that it's like the most popular show in the history of ever. i think he'll be ok.

nick said...

and how you're calling me nicky, too?

Meggie said...

Caro wants to be me when she grows up. :) I can say that seeing as how I'm exactly two weeks older.

oline said...

n- i will grant you that the being written out of a post-comeback is different. and you were being naughty and threatening the life of our boy o'donnell, so the nicky seemed appropriate.

meggie, old friend- you know i adore you, but i could never be you. you live in a city without an h+m and that's antithetical to my entire belief system.

Les Savy Ferd said...

little known fact about Oh-l!ghn...
the books in her apartment (and there quite a few) have the magical ability to transform themselves into completely new and different titles every time you visit.

oline said...

i have this theory that my books are total attention whores and pair off differently every night. they hike their pages and run about the room, frantically rearranging themselves so that- on the off chance a dread pirate drops by- a new couple will have their moment in the dougO eye-level spotlight. the vieve is obviously in collusion, throwing rowdy dance parties to muffle the clamor.

Les Savy Ferd said...

this takes place to the Fantasia theme music, of course.

Meggie said...

Specifically which Fantasia music? Sorceror's Apprentice? Night on Bald Mountain? 'Cause depending on the music, it could make it awesome or creepy.

Les Savy Ferd said...

the song with the mop and buckets. which would make it awesome AND creepy as books that move on their own would necessitate.

Meggie said...

Ah. Sorceror's Apprentice. Good choice.
