Robin, I too am a romantic, and as a kid I loved Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, but my very fave was Peter Pan. My own girlish (as opposed to girly) dreams tended to involve enjoying the big puffy princess dresses and fabulous jewels in my quieter moments, or my spare time, as it were (if I had any), but then ditching them and jumping into more streamlined duds to go off on adventures with the hero, instead of being rescued by him. Or Hel, maybe *after* I was rescued by him! ;-) I've always loved (and sometimes perform) old folk songs about girls disguising themselves as men in order to go off and become soldiers, sailors, pirates, highway"men", etc. A fave song in the first category, which I learned off a Steeleye Span album years ago, is "The Drummer Maid", containing the winning line: "To think I've slept with a thousand men, and a maiden all the while!" Heh heh heh. I have to admit, another pertinent fave song of mine is the show tune "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" from "Annie, Get Your Gun". Of course, in real life Annie Oakley *was* a better shot than hubby Frank Butler, no doubt about it. What can I say. I've always felt it never hurts to keep our dear menfolk on their toes in all manners possible! ;-)
......I only commented because I am a die-hard romantic, with girly dreams of strong, brave, heroic men standing up to the bad guys......
Laurie, I admit to having a blind spot a mile wide when it comes to people for whom I have affection or admiration. In my little world no fan of Alvin's could be anything less than an excellent human being.
Hey Toni, I have led such a quiet life these past few years I forgot how fun some of those wild and crazy times could be. I got into some trouble myself back in the day. The scariest were when the FBI wanted me to rat out my friends and the time I thought there was a hit out on me because some jealous female spread a rumor that I was a narc. All in all I like my peaceful life now much better.
