Ten things...

... about my ex-husband.

ADDED: #5 should also say he's been mistaken for Ozzy Osbourne.

I hope the confusion was immediately resolved upon speaking...

A couple of years ago, children would ask me for my autograph. (Similar to Ann's father being confused with Sinatra.) They would wonder what I was doing at a swimming pool in central TX, and I'd tell them -- in a British accent -- that I was recording my new CD in Austin. Probably by now they've never heard of Ozzy anymore. Funny, I didn't remember the Ozzy comparison until reminded just now. Which bears out Ron's (was it Ron's?) mention of the Chevalier song.

Richard: Did you shake and shamble too?

Tonya said...

How about 10 things about Ann Althouse?

How about ten things about Tonya?

I think I've scattered at least ten things about me over this blog. Why, only yesterday, I revealed that I never drink out of a can.

Richard Lawrence Cohen said...

Shucks, I forgot to shake and shamble. This is truly a testament to your superior knowledge of popular culture.

I like Tonya's suggestion. I will read it and marvel at how little I know you.

Tonya said...

Oh, come on Ann, no one cares whether you drink out of a can. If you want, I'll write the list of Ten Things for you.

Ann Althouse said...

Tonya: I think it's unusually revealing. If Richard had me doing such a think in one of his fancy novels, it would mean a hell of a lot. I'd stand condemned.

Ann Althouse said...

And so would typo-ing "think" for "thing."

I should probably be doing this in Richard's blog instead, but since he is here...

#1, you are probably lucky. Around my house growing up, you were corrected if your grammer were not correct. Even to this day, we still do this - each of us with our special pet peeve. My mother's was using "who" or "whom" instead of "that" for people. Mine are the subjunctive and predicate nominatives. My almost 14 year old daughter now gets the brunt of this.

#5, Kind of hard to see how Richard can have looked like all those people, even without looking like Ozzy now. Must have been interesting.

#7 (macho). Never really did feel that way. Weird.

#9, Richard and the President are a perfect match then, if opposites attract.

Bruce: Hey, thanks for the bank-shot comment.

#1: I got all that grammaticcal pedantry too. My father was an English teacher, my mother a snob. But I was referring to psychodrama at high volume -- in complete sentences, with the final "g" pronounced in the f-word.

#2: Either I'm a chameleon, or it's just the dark hair.

#7: You're lucky.

#9: Me and W? I could handle promoting literacy and being on women's magazine covers, but I don't know about those dirty jokes.
