Ya know how you watch a movie when you’re a kid, and then you catch it again when you’re grown up and you see it differently? There are jokes you finally get or dialogue that makes sense. That just happened to me.

I totally have a crush on Captain Von Trapp!

    Sound of Music has been my favorite movie since I was little and I find myself watching it 2-3x per year. It was quite a revelation when I finally learned about Hitler and the Nazis in school and realized that I had watched these things through Sound of Music for years. I, too, always see something different every time I see the movie even though I can quote it verbatim–like last night I saw Baroness Shraider catch on to Maria and the Captain’s longing looks long before the party event–I had assumed she only noticed at the party. Love the movie.
    By the way, I claimed Captain Von Trapp when I was 4, so you can’t have him!

    Rule 532. of section A of the Uniform Code of Sisterhood clearly states that you can not “claim” a man, be him a fictional character, a celebrity, common man if you are already in possession of another man, fictional, celebrity or common man in the form of engagement or marriage. This rule also applies if the relationship is purely NCMO in nature, but a judgement is made based on frequency of encounters.

    Read the manual, tammy!

    alright, then for the record, so all manual holders will know-
    i claim daniel craig.

    i also apply all standard ‘shot-gun’ or ‘calling’ rules to him also- he’s mine. step-off.

  4. Tammy says:

    the manual that I have states that I AM allowed to have lustful crushes of men that I won’t really be able to ever meet or hook up with. I am not allowed to have crushes on guy friends or real men that I run into on a regular basis. Therefore, I have a few: Josh Groban, Jay Clifford of Jump Little Children, Ioan Gruffudd, etc. My husband has made up this bizarre rule that for every crush that I have, he is allowed to have a crush on two women. Therefore, he has many more girlfriends than I have of boyfriends. The rule really works well for us though. You can have crushes as long as you don’t act on them…or dream about them–that would be weird. Of course, this other manual that I own says something about not lusting after other people/things at all because it is considered a sin.

    oh yeah, and because he was so darn stinkin’ cute in The Holiday, Jude Law may be getting added to my list—it depends on what 2 women my husband would add to his.

    Yeah, ok. So even acknowledging another womans existence can be potentialy dangerous to a girls fragile ego but its ok for girls to play fight over pretty boy hollywood icons all day. Doesn’t bother me at all, just wondering how this isn’t a double standard.

    What ever happened to the free market?

  8. Jared says:

    Tammy, what about when your husband has a man-crush? How many do extra BF’s do you get then? I would ask for 4 and settle for 3…

  9. Sam says:

    again, Jared- ‘communist’ is not an allowable epithet anymore. plus, it just doesn’t have the same ring, minus the hammer and sickle. ahhh, the good ol’ days.
    -Sam, lived in Russia for a year so everything in her house is red, Gibson

  10. cheryl says:

    ahh, the mathematics of adultry,,, I KID! kind of. jared, i was sure i told you not to say communist “around” sam. I didn’t tell you that? i meant to.

  11. Tammy says:

    Jared, I think we may have had this conversation before about man crushes–possibly at Kickin Chicken? I think my husband has several man crushes, but it doesn’t allow for me to have more BFs–it just means that I can have several woman-crushes—is that even a word? And there ARE some women out there that I greatly admire and am non-sexually infatuated with.

  12. Jared says:

    Just like a ‘Socialist’, tying to limit free speech…

  13. katie says:

    sam thinks that being called “communist” is a compliment.

  14. cheryl says:

    can i be a chick-crush of yours, tammy?

  15. Tammy says:

    cheryl, you alreay are 😉

  16. Jared says:

    Does Sam like to prove her progressive cred by wearing a Che Guevera t-shirt made in a Bengali sweatshop?

  17. Sam says:

    yes, kates, i do- and nope, my ‘cred’ is proven by wearing my authentic CCCP shirt from Rossea. che was a wanna-be.
