I love hearing Christina saaaang.  She performed her lovely hit “Beautiful” for the televised “Coming Together” Benefit for Victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Uh-mazing.

Speaking of old, blonde broads, raise your hand if you think Christina should play Peggy Lee in a fabulous biopic?  I KNOW, right?? Why the HELL aren’t I a casting agent? Watch this vintage video from The Dean Martin Show, where Miss Lee gives us a lovely rendition of her melancholy classic, “Is That All There Is?”…

 

 

I’d like to leave you with the image of a skinny little 3rd grader with freckles in a navy blue mini sweater- dress, with a saucy little belt, navy tights and red patent leather Mary Janes singing “Is That All There Is? ” her best friend, Susan Hackbarth, just to make her cry with laughter.  That little dork was me.  I’d hold an imaginary highball glass and a Fanny Farmer chocolate ciggie in one hand, then slur my words into my hairbrush…”lets break out the booooooze.”  Memories.  Seems I never stopped doing my old act, right Cyndy?  Only those times I was covering Miss Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone” right smack in the middle of our office.

One more thing: This post was written entirely while under the deep influence of Ambien. And. It. Shows.

What were we talking about?
