Saw the Best Movie!

Doris & I went to see The Devil Wears Prada today!!!  Damn!!  It was GREAT!!!  SO MUCH FUN.  Really cool. 

Now, some folks may think a movie about the fashion industry would be boring & mundane. Well, IT WASN'T. 

All those beautiful clothes, purses, shoes, jewelry, models, designers, & snot bucket attitudes were pelleted non-stop across the screen in such colorful, gay profusion.  So amazing!  A great feast for the eyeballs.

But let me tell you about Meryll Streep!  OH MY GOD....- RIVITING!!!  She is SO FUCKING FABULOUS!!  Like duhhh, I KNOW, but Oh My GAAAWWWDDD, who in this world is a more brilliant actress than her?????  And she looked better than ever with that hairdo (probably a wig - but if I could look that good, I'd cut all mine off!!) & makeup, plus her Wardrobe was to die for! 

I can't wear those high heels at this time in life as my Flying Feet are SHOT, okay???  (Much to Doris' chagrin) And I don't wear dresses anymore.  (ditto before...)  In fact I now wear sweats, jeans, tee shirts, & other sordid, schleppy attire. 

But there was a time in my past incarnation that I was into ALL exquisite fashion as I modeled in my youth (age 8 to 21) & did the beauty pageant rounds after high school thru college. (Forget it, I'm not getting into all that today!)  I dumped it all around 1969 during the Feminist Movement with the exception of being a most fabulous discoqueen-diva ever in the 70's up thru the 80's. So it was exciting to visit that glamour for a few hours in this movie.  Can't say I ever want to go back to all that, but it sure is pretty to look at!

Now, back to the FABULOUS Ms. Streep, - She Was SO FIERCE!!!!!  Good GOD!!  And WHY am I always attracted to tough, bossy, cold bitches like that I wonder?  It MUST be the ole' mother trick, my dear Mother- 'Ruth Truth' had me jumping thru hoops all my life trying to please her, which was an unending impossibility. Atleast I HAVE learned that those bitches I'm so attracted to are NOT what I really want, although I have even become one one the surface, myself.    I do love a tough broad.   

Well anyway, enough of this dribble.  I see where Superman beat Prada out at the box offices this weekend.  Shish.  I saw enough of young men in tights & capes at the Pride Parade last Sun!  If you have a chance, go see The Devil Wears Prada if for no other reason for Meryll Streep's AMAZING performance!  All the pretty women & the mad kaleidoscope of insane fashion are just a plus!

Ebert and his friend couldnt have said it better.

We had our Pride festival a few weeks ago. I missed it cause Sg flaked on me.

Oh, I'm so glad to hear that the movie is good. I watch very few, but I'll see ANYTHING with Meryl Streep in it.  

I'm with you on the mean, bossy women thing.  (Some might say my wife is one, lol)

I adore Meryl Streep.  She's been on my "Who I Would Do" list for a very long time.  Glad you enjoyed the movie.  Can't wait to see it.

Sounds great. I don't go to the movies often, but this one is on the list, and after this glowing review, how could I resist.
