Last week, Girl Who Loves Sparkly Clothes but Hates Hillary Clinton made an announcement.
Dean Martin was no longer number one on her list of top 5 favorite singers. Frank Sinatra was the new number one (after my recommendation to listen to some Sinatra) and Dean had slid to number two.
I asked her who had fallen out of her original top five now that Sinatra was number one. Was it Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, John Travolta, or Hannah Montana? She said that it was either Simon or Stockard Channing. Stockard Channing?
I told her that Channing wasn't even on her original list. She responded, "Channing was on my secret list. My Pee Wee list." From what I can tell, her Pee Wee list is sort of like a minor league squad - just waiting for their chance for the big time.
But Stockard Channing? Clearly this list is Grease heavy so where is the love for Olivia-Newton John?
She added, "My dad told me that I would like someone but now I can't remember who. I think his name is Bing or Bang or something like that."
Dino responds to being dropped in the rankings.
This is now the fifth time that Dean Martin has been mentioned in recent blog posts. In case you missed these brilliant comments in the original posts, it seems that I've gotten some attention from the all coveted Dean Martin readership.
The first post brought this response from Dino Martin Peters:
hey pallie listmaker, gotta say that girl who loves sparkly clothes has such good taste...and nice to see more and more of today's youth fallin' in love with our Dino. Never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool....oh, to return to the days when Dinowalked the earth...
Followed mere moments later by Dino's pallie Rogue Spy '07:
Great to see another Dean Martin fan. He's a great all around entertainer. He wasn't dubbed the King of Cool for nothing. My sister is 22. She's fallen hard for Dean Martin herself over the last year or so. The man's the best.
After the second post, Dino Martin Peters wrote in:
hey pallie, please relate to sparkly clothes girl that I think she has the best taste in makin' our Dino here numero uno fav...no one croons a tune like our King of Cool...and no one like our great man to inspire the best in everyone and everythin'...
Followed again mere minutes later by Rogue Spy 07:
Great to see Dean Martin on top. What a great all around entertainer, whether it was in music, movies, or television. What a cool, smooth, and effortless way Dino did everything. There's nothing like Dino music for Valentine's. His Italian Love Songs CD is in my player now.
The third post brought this from Dino Martin Peters:
"I like you because you’re really funny because when you asked Girl Who Likes Sparkly Clothes but Hates Hillary Clinton if she would kill someone to see Dean Martin, and she said yes. I thought that was funny."
Hey pallie, I loves how Sparkly Clothes girl loves our Dino...and the lengths she would go to be with our great man. That's true Dinopalliedom!
But nothing from Rogue Spy 07.
This amazing poem --
A true account of me being me
Sorry I couldn’t be me yesterday, but . . . . . . . . . .
I wished on a shooting star that I would be Dean Martin
And before I knew it, I was Dean Martin (before he died of course)!
After a few hours it became torture.
It was like detention with cameras!
The press was so annoying.
At least I didn’t have to go to school.
Which was posted the other day brought nary a response from the Dino lovers. What's up with that pallies? Have you gotten complacent? What are your thoughts now that Dino has slipped in the rankings?
