In The Home Stretch

Today is Feb 15th. The new baby is due March 17th. I have mentioned before, probably more than once, that the overwhelming feelings are setting in. The main thing is, the house. It is a disaster. I did get Tori’s new room painted, but I still have yet to get everything put back together and put away and all that. We have stuff everywhere. Not just Tori’s toys, but stuff all over. It’s not dirty and we aren’t hoarders or anything like that. We just need a good spring cleaning and then a good cleaning. We have both been pretty tired. I really need to order groceries from Peapod. At least that saves some time not schlepping to the grocery store.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVVVVVVE to hire a cleaning service to come in and give the house a real good, thorough cleaning. The problem that I have is that I would have to clean before I could have someone come in and clean. I don’t mean I would have to put things away and straighten up. I mean that I would have to CLEAN the house. I don’t think I could let someone else come in and think that we are slobs or don’t do anything. I am lazy not disgusting. I know it is there job to come in and clean. I know I shouldn’t be self conscious because I know there are people that are a million times worse. I just have issues. Many, MANY issues. I guess I will have plenty of time to clean after the baby comes when I take a few days off work when he and Mrs. Voices will be sleeping … a LOT. I will just have to make sure it is one of the days that Tori goes to day care or to grandma’s.

The recent celebrity deaths, well, Whitney Houston mainly, have brought an increase to views on my blog again this week. The odd thing is however, once again, the search terms that are causing hits to my blog, have NOT been Whitney Houston, Don Cornelius, Jeffrey Zaslow or any other recently deceased celebs. It is Grease, Olivia Newton-John and Sandy again. I don’t get it. I think I am just going to put those tags in my posts every day just for giggles.


Celebrity Death Watch Mid 2011 : The Death Wading Pool

With the recent passing of Annette Charles, Cha Cha DiGregorio, from Grease, I started to realize that the living cast is starting to dwindle. I say this as it is a “recent” movie. Granted, there are movies out there where far more of the cast has completely died; Gone With the Wind, Wizard of Oz, Ben-Hur … but those all have actors that you think of as old. At least I did. With Grease, most of the actors I grew up with. Here is who I can think of off the top of my head who has left us from Grease: (oddly enough as I am writing this, Sandra Dee just came up on my iPod. Don’t ask why I have it on there, just go with it). On to the dead greasers in no particular order:

Jeff Conaway

Eve Arden

Joan Blondell

Alice Ghostley

Dody Goldman

Lorenzo Lamas (Career only … he is still alive)

Dick Patterson

Annette Charles

Believe it or not, Sid Ceasar, Fannie Flagg and all the members of Sha Na Na are still alive.

So, in my morbid sense of celebrity death watching, I thought it would be (fun?) to predict the order of death for some of the remaining cast members. Below are some of the more “main” characters from the movie that are still with us. Leave a comment with who you think might be the next 3, 5 or heck, if you want to give the order of all that you think will kick it. I did not include Sid or Fannie as they are up there anyway and bound to go soon. Have fun.

John Travolta – Danny

Olivia Newton-John – Sandy

Stockard Channing – Rizzo

Barry Peal – Doody

Michael Tucci – Sonny

Kelly Ward – Putzie

Didi Conn – Frenchie

Jamie Donnelly – Jan

Dinah Manoff – Marty

Frankie Avalon – Teen Angel

Edd Byrnes – Vince Fontaine

Until next time, remember … “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s what you do with your dancin’ shoes.”
