Xanadu and Other Musings

I am stuck. Befuddled. Blocked and constipated. I have (dun, dun, duh)…..WRITER’S BLOCK!

I can hear you all now… NO GOD, why her, whyyyy now???. She was too young in her career to be struck down! I have been having this private battle for the last few weeks. Nothing will come to me. I stare blankly at the “create posting” button as it taunts me with it’s virgin white text box. Surely I can’t be the only one? What do other bloggers do when the pressure becomes too great?

OK Keri, I tell myself…now don’t panic! Deep breaths and count backwards from 10. Should I use a color? A new font perhaps? OH SWEET BABY JESUS what will break this terrible curse you have placed upon me? Should I burn some sage or hire a priest for a cleansing?

But wait….what’s this on TV? Entertainment Tonight? A new musical opening based on the 1980 movie Xanadu? Weren’t there muses sent down from Olympus to help the struggling disco DJ overcome his creative block? Sister’s (I recall) that sang and roller skated and wore incredibly fabulous outfits with leg warmers.

Move over Olivia, I’m pullin‘ out the leg warmers and makin‘ you my bitch!

  1. Xanadu, your neon lights will shine….for YOU XANADUUUUUUUUU….Oh yeah, sing it loud, sister.I don’t want Olivia, though. Do you think Heraldo will be my bitch? Just kidding, Big H. Don’t be like our favorite Brit and get your knickers all in a twist.Ker…I can remember singing along to this album with you.

  2. I know! Me too. I remember trying to roller skate and do the little hand jive thing.Now that you’re here…now we are near….for YOU XANADUUUUHUUUU…I want to see the musical!xoxoxo

  3. Do you think Heraldo would wear the leg warmers for you? How about the shirt off one shoulder?I guess you can only dream!

  4. Oh, Heraldo! You hadn’t posted a comment in so long we were just trying to goad you out of hiding. xoxoxox

  5. Hey, I have to make s’mores for 150 people today with Sal and Michael (I’m making Michael wear the bedazzled apron.) I’ll post the recipe, the review, and all the ooey, gooey details later.

  6. And by the way, beautiful you, what’s up with that copyright? Have you been smoking dope again? You know how paranoid it makes us. hee hee

  7. Just so you know I totally draw the line at leg warmers. They clash with my < HREF="http://humboldtherald.wordpress.com/2006/11/30/man-boobs/" REL="nofollow">man boobs<>.

  8. Hee hee hee..I actually think leg warmers go perfectly with them….wow..it’s amazing how a post about man boobs will generate such blog hostility. Too much testosterone and insecurity.Oh, and H…I wanted to point something out to you. Not once have you chastised us for grabbing random pictures off the internet and using them on the blog. Come on…please? We’d like it…especially if you threw in a little spanking.Sorry, Squirrel, sometimes I just can’t help myself.

  9. In all honesty, I encourage pilfering web images. My occasional chastisement is only meant to shower giggles on the big meanie who posts occasional threats to my humble blog that wicked legal action is in my future for snagging a pic of Rambo. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be tied to a wooden chair with pink leg warmers and forced to watch hours of Olivia Newton John and perhaps a round or two of Barbarella.
