mah luma lumma lums

When I was a little girl, a little younger than my precious God-daughter is now, there was only one person I wanted to be. My favorite show was Kids, Incorporated. I wanted to sing! I wanted to dance! I wanted to kiss cute boys! I wanted to work in this magical place that was all kids and no silly grown ups! I wanted to be Stacey Ferguson. Oh, did she have pretty curly blonde hair! And a great singing voice! And look at that hair! Man, she had the bestest clothes and jewelry, all neon and slouchy and awesome! Flash forward a number of years Sunday night, watching the Super Bowl with J & T, two of my most favorite people on Earth. I found myself saying it again. I want to be H E R. Fergie = Stacey Ferguson (in case you lived under a rock or something) Or do her. I can admit it -she's top of my If-I-was-I-would list. Me: I want to be her. T: Me too. Me: But I'd totally divorce her man, Josh. T: No, he's hot. Me: Agreed, but there are hotter men out there, and as her, I could schtup ALL of them. Being married would just be a road block to that. T: Agreed. Me: I'd do her. J: ? Me: I would. She's that hot. T: Me too. J: This. This is why I like hanging out with you two. But GOD FORBID when precious God-daughter told me a couple of years ago that she "loved and wanted to be like that lady". Me: Which lady, precious? GD: The one that sings and dances and wears the clothes. Me: ? You gotta help me out here. What does she sing? GD: Mah lums! Mah luma laalie lumms!! Me: Oh, hell NO!! Sorry kid, over my dead body! GD: pout and stamp feet. Sorry, but the Stacey Ferguson of today is NOT the Stacey Ferguson of yesterday.

To be fair to Fergie, yesterday's Von is not today's Von.

She wanted to be you, Von, did you ever think of that?

Von said...

Hm, no pumpkin, I had not considered that.
BUT
You made me smile, a tough challenge for today -so thanks!

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

Maybe you can make it up to her by giving her a guest spot as a background singer on your debut album.

Von said...

You don't want that spot? I was reserving back up singers/dancers to my bloggy frenz.

Kathleen said...

totally made me laugh. I still maintain that BEP song was ironic and top 40 just missed it.

Von- just don't pee your pants onstage!!

Von said...

I have no stage fright. This peeing you mention will not be a problem for me.

Jennifer said...

Fergie didn't seem to have a problem with it either. :)

Brando said...

I know where we can find a really amazing lead wastebasket player.

Von said...

I was just thinking the same thing Brando!

blue girl said...

Von! I thought the same thing about Fergie during the 1/2time show. I've had major girl crushes lately. Fergie & that sex bomb from Modern Family... lol
