Top Ten Celebrities With Whom I am Cosmically Connected

10. Stevie Nicks: I like to think that I AM her, especially when I wear my tall black boots, my "Stevie Nicks lucky boots"

9. Debbie Harry: I just really like rebellious blondes who sing in front of rock bands. I mean, who doesn't admire "Blondie"? One time in church I accidentally announced that "Debbie Harry" would be giving the opening prayer instead of "Debbie Hardy." Someone asked me if she'd be singing "Heart of Glass" after the prayer.

8. Bono: It started out as pure attraction, but now I feel deeply that he and I would be best friends if only he would just repeal that restraining order.

7. Gwyneth Paltrow: I've kind of lost a lot of respect for her since she named her baby "Apple" (also, one time she said that she has a lot more going on than most people her age, which deeply offended my sister, who is Gwyneth's age, and who has three kids, which is, really, a lot going on). But I've gotten the "Sliding Doors" haircut too many times for it to be a coincidence. I feel like if I get that haircut, I will actually look like her.

6. Satine: It's not so much Nicole Kidman as it is the character she plays in Moulin Rouge. I wish I were Satine (minus the whole prostitute and dying of consumption thing). In fact, my MSN Messenger identity is Satine.

5. John Lennon: Kacy is right, Paul is better. John is far too complicated and has done some really stupid things involving nudity. But for some reason, I have always felt a cosmic connection with John. I want to reach out to him, to tell him it's okay that his mother left him.

4. Elvis: This needs no explanation.

3. Gwen Stefani: It all started with her song "A Simple Kind of Life," then intensified when she married Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale.

2. Reese Witherspoon: I love her in "Legally Blonde" and admire her for having kids and staying married to Ryan Philippe, not that it would be all that difficult.

1. Lindsay Lohan: I think she's precious and I think that if I were sixteen again, I would try to emulate her, with that red hair. Also, I am totally on her side regarding the whole Hillary Duff/Lindsay Lohan rivalry thing.


  1. No, it's more just like I wish I could wear her clothes and be as pretty as she is. I want to be the "Sparkling Diamond."

  2. I have a Stevie Nicks dress that fits everywhere but over the "ample" bussoms... nonetheless, I wear it around the house and sing "Edge of Seventeen" and "Too Far From Texas" at the top of my lungs whenever I need a pick me up. What is it about Stevie that soothes the soul like no one else really can?

    I am jealous of your boots.

  3. Mmmmm, Ewan McGregor....

    Oh, sorry. When I think of Satine he automatically comes to mind.

    Kacy and I saw Debbie Harry in concert with Tom Tom Club (I know - who?) and The Ramones who sped up their songs (as if that is possible). She was cool. I had a record (yes - a record) called Solid Gold Hits #2. It had "Heart of Glass" on it.

  4. Sarah,
    I'll tell you what Stevie has: MYSTERY. She has it in spades. I have lost all mystery since marriage and childbirth, but I feel mysterious when I wear those boots.
