So I've decided to keep things fresh, I'm introducing a brand new feature here at the Sarah Show. I'm calling it "Laundry List Friday." Each Friday I'll just set out a list of things that I like, that I don't, whatever. Since I'm a big fan of the Movie "High Fidelity" I will keep the lists to five items, and while they are numbered 1-5...there's really no particular order.
But let's start with something that's sort of bugging me...what exactly, is a Laundry List? Seriously, where did that term come from? I mean, you have laundry, you do it or you leave it in a pile to ferment with the rest of the laundry. Do you really need a list for that? Are there people who make a list that says, "Laundry" and then what, 1) Whites 2) Blues 3) Reds 4) multicolored clothes that are going to all wind up sort of looking gray anyway because no matter that anyone says, colors run in the laundry. Do we actually have to write that sort of thing down?
Okay, enough of that.
So today for my first Laundry List Friday, I thought I'd compile a list of my favorite places to go.
1) Las Vegas, NV
On the complete flip side of the coin, we have the bright lights and glitz of Las Vegas. As a writer, this is a treasure trove of characters. It's bright, it's shiny, it's completely devoid of conscience, and if I weren't afraid of the guys who stand on the sidewalks and snap fliers advertising "Girls delivered to your room in 20 minutes or less" I would sit on a sidewalk bench and just people watch all day long.
2) Renaissance Faires.
Say what you want to...but I dig guys in tall boots, food on sticks, and people calling me "m'lady." Jousts, sword fights, wicked double entendres, and cheese fritters...all GOOD. (Especially the cheese fritters with mustard sauce!)
3) Amusement parks. (NOT Disney, because they cater too much to little kids and frankly little kids' rides make me vomit. Ferris Wheels, Ferris wheels make me vomit. Anything with a big boat thingy swinging back and forth makes me hurl.)
I like water parks, but I LOVE anything with big tall rides. I think of screaming while on a roller coaster to be the best therapy EVER. I want to be cremated and my ashes flung from the top of a roller coaster. Any questions?
4) Marie's House
