I agree on Cate, Interpretive Dance (esp if I am the one dancing), Monday nights, and Newsweek.

Squirrels are just rats with better PR.

Alison said...

My love for lazy rivers knows no bounds. If I could have a spiked Arnold Palmer while drifting around in one, life would be perfect.

RevRee said...

I'm a huge fan of Long Island Ice Tea! More people should drink them

5 of 9er said...

Trannies... like the one of Rock Of Love that came in second place?
Yes, New Zealand is way under-rated... especially aftet that Rings Trilogy.

Catherinette Singleton said...

Any specific trannies that you're thinking of?

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Reckenroll:: I don't care what you say - squirrels rule.

Alison:: I know, right? The only other thing I would add is if we were sipping Arnold Palmers on a lazy river in Mexico or somewhere warm.

Revree:: I think the problem is that no guys drink them - it is a total chick drink.

Niner:: I was actually thinking BEFORE the LOTR trilogy, but whatevs.

Catherinette:: Yes, the one that took second place in Sunday's "Rock of Love" finale, and of course the "Real Housewives of Orange County" since it takes a lot of courage to go on a reality show like that.

Well in honor of the underrated LIIT, maybe we should re-visit the Northside for an "Ode to the LIIT", as I remember the last time we were there we managed to polish off about 3 a piece :).

"Heather" did look mighty fine in her neon yellow dress to show off her Cabo tan!

I would add culottes & berets to your list, but maybe I'm just in a Frenchie mood (as in I want to French Heather).

KAZ said...

How can Ms Blanchett be underrated - she is the darling of the critics who slobber over her all the time.
Or is that just over here?

Julie_Gong said...

I do not agree at all with #18 because those little guys are evil. Terrifyingly evil!

blythe said...

now see, if i'd made this list, you wouldn't have had to face such an untimely demise

who's ready for the new elizabeth movie?! me! me!

The [Cherry] Ride said...

LP:: I agree! Or maybe we can just sample the ones at Crimson!

Classy:: Culottes - no, berets - yes!, you naughty minx.

Mr. Shain:: Thanks for playing.

Kaz:: Not here in the States.

Julie:: You shouldn't talk about trannies like that! Oh, wait...

Blythe:: Please! I would have ripped my eyes out if I had to be on another week. ;-)

Mood Indigo said...

dude - FLYING squirrels. Way cooler than the regular ones.

blythe said...

you're so sad. it's ok. shain's here for you.

minijonb said...

mmm... Cate Blanchett. and she played Simon Pegg's ex in Hot Fuzz! look for it. brilliant cameo.

Guilty Secret said...

Bicycles rock. I agree - they are so underrated.

Long Island Ice Teas are good, but better is the Hollywood Iced Tea - topped up with Champagne instead of coke. Mmm-mmm.

Mr. Shain said...

are you even trying anymore?

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Even more underrated than trannies are trannie vacations (See right panel of Cherry's page).

blythe said...

you also seem to not particularly care about your blog.

Anonymous said...

? i don't get the trannie jokes.

ReckenRoll said...

Missing: One CherryRide. Last seen at O'hare Airport crying a single tear over KateR and ReckenRoll...

Loaf said...

Agree with Monday nights, as I'm having a great one so far, and as I type, am also getting to grips with Skype!
