The Inimitable, Irrepressible, Irreplaceable Eartha Kitt
17 January, 1927--25 December, 2008


This is a "favorite things" meme. I promise there are no whiskers on kittens or brown paper packages tied up with string anywhere in the answers. It comes, with thanks, from Yves Paul's Melodramatic Diary of a Cynic:

Fill in your favorite for each of the following:

1. Political show: Washington Week in Review. Runner up: The Colbert Report

2. Picnic food: Chicken Salad, with really good deviled eggs coming in a close second.

3. Mixed drink: Gin & Tonic, extremely cold

4. U.S. President: J.F.K.

5. Kind of student to teach: One who values knowledge for itself, not just as a stepping stone to the kind of job to which it might lead.

6. Hobby you do or wish you still did: Gardening (do); building scale models of historic buildings out of toothpicks (did)

7. Sports commentator: None—they scream at the top of their voices. It's exhausting and totally unnecessary.

8. Sport to watch on TV: Ice dancing. Yes, I’m that gay.

9. Animal to have as a pet: Cats, always and forever.

10. Halloween costume you have worn: This year, Vlad Dracul—yes, Dracula himself.

11. Kind of dessert: Fruit pies, but I can always be seued by chocolate.

12. Comic strip: Dilbert.

13. Ice cream flavor: Cookie dough.

14. News source: BBC International Service.

15. Vacation spot: Europe.

16. Wine: Dry whites (Pinot Grigio).

17. Way to waste time instead of working: Answering memes on my blog :-)

18. Reality show: I hate them all. Boy Meets Boy was tolerable for all the handsome half-naked men, but it was gay, so it was dropped very fast.

19. Children's movie: The Little Mermaid—for Pat Carroll’s Ursula the Sea Witch above and beyond anything else.

20. Celebrity you wish would retire: Brittney Spears, Paris Hilton, et al.


I will sorely miss her. She was one of my 3 top divas.
I was glad to meet her this year, and shake her hand.
