Who I want to grow up to be . . .

Nora Charles.

Now, all I need is to be gorgeous, come from a family with lots of money, and find a guy with witty Nick Charles repartee. I'm certainly willing to go the extra mile with sleuthing and drinking.

Make yourself happy, and watch a Thin Man movie or two. Bottoms up!

You ARE gorgeous! Can't help you out with the money part...still trying to figure that one out for myself. As far as finding a "thin-man-type"...I trust that southern charm of yours....you just never know sweetie....

Never seen these Powell/Loy classics before, but I've got a couple waiting around on DVD to be watched.

Now I'm really going to have to make an effort to sit down and view them...

Aw, Joy - I outta pay you money to follow me around and say all those sweet things! Nah, I've really given up on finding my William Powell.

pt - get thee to a DVD player! The banter between these two is hilarious - and they drink themselves silly throughout. AND solve crimes. Wow!

And I'd like to be the pup.

MaryB said...

Yup. I figure since I'll never be Nora, I can only hope to come back as Asta in my next life.

Me, I still partake of Paul Temple and Steve (another husband and wife sleauthing team) regularly.

Joy beat me to it! I also was going to say you only need the money and the man and if you play your cards right perhaps you could combine the two.

Peter, I'd never heard of Paul Temple. Where have I been? (Boy, the things I learn from you!)

Chris - well, ever hopeful, yes?
