Is It 12-12-12 Or Am I Dreaming?

Oh man, Chipmunks. It happened… again.

Another conversation in my head. And this one gets deep.

…I really need to stop drinking.

So, come on, it’s been a while: Who are you having “imaginary” (ahem. It might have happened. You don’t know) conversations with?

  1. Thanks for reminding me. I’ll have to do something special today. But… what? I will not date my neighbor who hits on me and looks at me creepy, that’s for sure. Lol… Well, at least.. not today.

  2. I had a dream the other night where you could get vajajay hair dye,,,not even lying,,,in my dream that’s how I found out my mom was cheating on my dad,,,’cause she started using that product and I found the evidence in the bathroom garbage.
    Yah,,I need help, lol

            1. I’m a purist. I just drink from the puddles in the parking lot.

              You know. This might be one of the weirder comments I’ve ever left. And I can assure you, that’s saying something.

    1. It would be weird, if it was anyone else. I need details! AND, you left a reply about diabetes that I read on my phone just as I walked into work, facing a big poster about diabetes. Ooooh.

        1. Oooh. Well, Peppermeister said to me last night, around 8pm, just as I was convinced I’d never have another blog idea again, “Are you going to try to make a donation to talk to Leo? He’s going to be at the 12-12-12 concert.” I jumped out of my chair, grabbed my lap top and said, “THANK YOU!” He called out, “Good night… See you tomorrow…” as I retreated to the dining room table. TMI?

          That movie rules. I’m also a big Shutter Island fan, if we’re gonna talk recents.

          1. Well, along with Leo, I have the teeniest little crush on Joseph Gordon Levitt. I love a man with three names.
            Jim and I love Inception so much and each time I watch it I still don’t get it.
            I have never seen Shutter Island! It’s too creepy, JD! I can’t handle!

            1. He’s adorbs. And that movie does make my head hurt. In the good way.

              I think you can handle it. Part of what I love about it is, it’s even better watching the second time, when you know how it ends.

  3. Did I ever tell you how much Leo reminds me of my brother? So, I can never really think he’s hot because of it. That would be gross. And no, my brother isn’t quite as leading man good looking, but there is just a resemblance that I can’t get out of my head when I see him. Oh, and my brother is single again, just in case you want a poor substitute. Just saying. 😉

      1. I would have to go with . . . pro chipmunk. Maybe your 4th husband? He is a serial marry-er. He just got through his second divorce . . . I know he sounds like a dream, but that’s just him. I’m not even trying to upsell him or anything so you would be my SIL. 😉

        1. Perfect. As long as he doesn’t get too lonely being on the back burner for a while? I think my marriage to 2nd husband will be one of those hot and heavy, but fleeting, romances, and things with Leo will probably never get off the ground (see aforementioned reference to sexual orientation), so it shouldn’t be too long.

  4. So, come on, it’s been a while: Who are you having “imaginary” (ahem. It might have happened. You don’t know) conversations with?

    Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney. I see no need to choose.

    I love your thought bubbles and your thoughtfulness in making them green.

    1. Debbie! Did you see the McDermott/Mulroney SNL skit last weekend? It was pretty dang funny, actually.

      Thank you for your thoughtful compliment on my thoughtfulness. I hope Leo appreciates it, too.

      1. I haven’t caught the skit yet, but 2 Broke Girls was on tv when I turned it on the other night and there was a funny line about DM v. DM. I looked them up online because that is how I stay abreast of the Zeitgeist, and that’s where I saw news about the skit, but I haven’t actually seen it yet. I wanted to make it into a poll at Le Cahier, but I’ve got this whole quiet, brooding, Zen going on and it might be shocking for such superficiality to come out of nowhere. I might sprain something! Also, sorry about the italics. WP doesn’t seem to be recognizing end tags these days. Harumph. 🙂

        1. Debbie, I don’t feel Zen unless I stick to superficiality. Frankly, this whole conversation with Leo got a little too deep for my liking.

          And the italics were great – I imagined you were saying everything REALLY INTENSELY. I was on the edge of my seat!

  5. He doesn’t list Critters 3 because that was before he developed his “I’m a serious actor” scowl. Non-Scowling Leo has a separate resume. And the “Scowl your way to respectability and wealth” acting classes are really top notch. Very hard to get in to.

    Sometime I have imaginary conversations with Jon Stewart.

    1. I secretly bet a case of Champagne and 17 chipmunks that you would comment on Critters 3.

      I’m sorry, but you have to pay up, now. Even though you didn’t know this was happening.

      Please tell Jon I said hi and that I loved his interview with Chris Christie.

    1. Thanks, Leanne! And, um, YES. Yes, that certainly does warrant sending him a copy – and might I suggest you leave a heartfelt inscription that ends in, “I like you, just as you are”?

  6. Oh, Jules, you are definitely the funny one. (And the generous one–way to support Sandy relief! Good job!)

    Here’s a related/unrelated question:
    Do you think Leo and Julia Stiles look alike?

  7. I called him DiCrapio for years — even though he was in a lot of film I enjoy (only got around to watching Titanic 2 years ago–I hated that film, seriously…as usual, not with pop culture). Finally, in my 40s, I’ve decided I can no longer cringe when I see him. He’s got skills.

    As for those I have ‘imaginary convos’ with? Dude. You get my age, it’s the kid behind the counter at QT. By ‘kid’ I mean he’s 37. Still…

  8. Your love for New Jersey, Leonardo and the environment (not necessarily in that order) is exceeded only by your great skill as a ventriloquist. I didn’t see you lips move at all during this fantasy conversation!

      1. Well, I am definitely, and always have been, one of the uncool kids, but I’m afraid, after all his marriages, the feeling has dissipated. Besides, he was so cute back then and now looks too old for me (I, of course, have stayed the same age 🙂 )

  9. I feel that I have been remiss in my imaginary conversation work. They never seem to be with real people. Obviously I have been slacking. I may need a suggestion to start me off… anyone?

    1. Well, I’ll give you a pass, just this once.

      Now please ask Zooey Deschanel if she’ll come sing at my Christmas party. And by party I mean a party of three in which I’ll be making holiday arts and crafts with the only real friends I have.

  10. If your high school friends could only see you now. You are sitting at the royal court getting the last laugh. Literally. I think it’s also safe to assume that your partner in crime (P.I.C.), the Byronic Man, would be considered the prom king of WP.

  11. Hahaha, I remember when I first saw Titanic and wanted to become famous to meet Leocaprio. I had no idea he was in Critters 3, didn’t know there was a Critters 3!

  12. That is too good! My sister has fantasy convos with him all the time too, and I have a feeling the dialogue is pretty similar 🙂 Me, I have fantasy conversations (and run-ins, and romantic dates) all the time with Jack White. What can I say, I like pale, weirdly attractive, prolific musicians.

    1. Thank you! And I feel you. I like all musicians. All of them. That’s Leo’s one main drawback, if you ask me. No musical ability (as far as I can tell!). Although I read [a while back] he was taking singing lessons in the hopes of playing Frank Sinatra. Now THAT I’d like to see!

      P.S. – I absolutely love your gravatar – you’re gorgeous!
