Pee Wee Herman’s Comin’ Back!!!

Oh, Pee Wee!!!

OhHappyDAY. Pee Wee Herman is coming back!! Even though I have a tendency to sound like a self-righteous church lady when it comes to the Cyrus girls and their love of pole dancing, I’m proud to say I raised both my boys on the humor and delight of Pee Wee Herman, and if Paul Reubens brings his live show to Seattle, we are THERE.

We loved Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Pee Wee’s Playhouse, but the one this still gets the biggest laughs–even now–is the live stage show at the Roxy Theatre he performed for an HBO special back in 1982.

via the L.A. Times, Paul Reubens said:

“I’ve put part of him [Pee Wee] away for a long time but part of him has always been here with me,” the soft-spoken actor said in an interview today. “I think it will be like riding a bike — which is not a bad analogy for Pee-wee, by the way.”

One Christmas, I think Alex was in kindergarten, Santa (ahem)brought the best presents ever…it was all Pee Wee Herman!! Under the tree, he found the full-sized Chairy, Pee Wee jammies and matching robe, colorforms (remember those?), a sweatshirt, all the miniature characters from Pee Wee’s Playhouse, and the giant ventriloquist Pee Wee. I’m sure I’m forgetting a bunch of other cool things.

Mekka-lekka-HI mekka-hiney-HO, bitches!

C’mon Joe, we’re goin’ SHOPPIN’ ! !

Before and after, Palin’s $150K makeover

You BETCHA I’m jumpin’ on this! The Republican National Committee has shelled out in excess of $150,000 to make Sarah Palin look presentable as the Vice-Presidential candidate. Nieman-Marcus and Barney’s New York are listed as two of the luxury-based retailers with whom Palin’s stylists have shopped. Ummm…I dare you to go to a rink and find another hockey mom dressed in a $3500 Valentino suit. In addition to the clothing, funds were also being spent on make-up artists, hair stylists to the tune of $5000.
The L.A. Times reports “…Palin’s spokewoman is saying this is much ado about nothing, that we should be talking about more important issues. But can you imagine the outcry if it were revealed that Hilary Clinton’s rainbow of pantsuits was paid for by campaign contributions? Or if college kids’ $50 checks to the Biden/Obama campaign were putting those men in $5,000 custom suits? (Obama’s suits are by Hart Schaffner Marx out of Chicago, and cost in the $1,500 range.)”
I do realize that women are held to a very high level of scrutiny in terms of appearance when in the public eye. I’m just not sure of this is the best method for Palin to endear herself to all the gals out there who are “just like” her.
