That I had done (Friday's Sunday's Poem/Hot Actress)

by Aldo Kraas.

I know
You know
A safe heaven
Can be found
For you
I want to tell you
That I had done
My sea voyage
In a sailing ship
A few months


About the poem: I mentioned in this post that I had once written, and played, and recorded on the Internet for posterity, a song called If I Was Paul McCartney, so when you're done reading this you should go read that and then go listen to the song, but then I wondered whether other people themselves had written stuff about Paul McCartney, who, for some reason, is on my mind a lot this week. I've tweeted about him and mentioned him in a comment on another blog and I'm probably about two steps away from being hit with a restraining order.

Ever have one of those weeks, where you can't get your mind off of a former-moptop rock star from England?

So it's just me, then?

Anyway, I found this poem by googling poems about Paul McCartney, and I liked it, and there you go. Now you've got him on your mind, too.

About the Hot Actress: Sweetie and I were debating yesterday whether I have a skewed perception of who's hot, because I think Maggie Gyllenhaal is pretty and also like Xena: Warrior Princess, who I think looks a lot like Sweetie only Sweetie is about a foot shorter than Xena. So I pointed out that I also thought that Penny from "Happy Endings" is pretty and that I thought Jennifer Aniston is pretty, too, which is kind of a weird position to be in for a husband: arguing with your wife that you think people are pretty.

We left it at "Sweetie is kind of crazy," although I didn't tell her that's where we left it. And then today I texted her to see who should be the Hot Actress and she didn't reply in the time it took me to put this whole post up, so I went with Sofia Vergara, who was another actress I mentioned as thinking she was hot, because when you throw down the gauntlet and tell that I don't think hot people are hot, I will prove you wrong and I will mention a lot of hot people.

Which, again, kind of a weird argument to have, but I won it, so there.

Jeez, if she reads that you're going to end up in the doghouse.

Perhaps your man-crush on Paul McCartney is your inner homosexual wanting a little Beetle love.

Maggie Gyllenhaal is pretty - seconded.
