But there are a few celebrities out there I'd really love to meet. Danny Trejo, for one. That dude is just awesome. And Ellen. If I had to go on a talk show, hers would be the least horrible. And then there are the star chicks I'd like to load up on a high-end party bus with me, my girls, and a super-hot, barely-clothed bartender with killer guns and an unlimited supply of chocolate martini fixins. Check out my line up and tell me who you'd add to the guest list!
Right about now, you're thinking, "dang, that chick looks familiar." Picture her all in white selling insurance to random folks in mildly funny situations. You got it--she's Flo from the Progressive commercials. I feel quite sure she isn't that chipper in real life. But she is a longtime member of a highly respected improv troupe and she's clearly not afraid to have fun. Good improv actors are funny as heck and super sharp, making Stephanie a must for killer girls' night!
Yes, she plays one of my favorite characters on TV, but I'm convinced this woman is just cool as can be in real life too. Plus, she's an award-winning comedic stage actress and her degree includes a dance component, so I'm betting she owns a pair of character shoes, which automatically makes me happy. I warn you now that the bus will be making a stop at the funkiest accessory shop we can find so Kirsten and I can go on a hair flower binge-buy. And I will try very hard not to ask her if His Eminent Hotness, Shemar Moore, is a nice guy or a turdmuffin. I so don't want to know.
This one's a bit of a cheat because probably you don't know her (but you should). And Cheryl might call me the "B" letter (since she won't say the actual word) for beating her to the punch. This local professional actress is hilarious beyond belief. We've seen her in Nunsense and 9 to 5 at the Legacy and she brought down the house both times. And, looking through her resume, I realize why she's always looked so familiar! Several years ago, she did The Most Massive Woman Wins at Process with a friend of mine. Anyhoo, she's sure to be a hoot and liven up our wild night out even more!
The Voice - Adele
Seriously. Can you imagine walking into a karaoke bar with Adele? (And there will be karaoke on this whirlwind tour.) I know, most serious singers wouldn't touch a karaoke machine with a ten-foot pole. But I just get the impression Adele doesn't take herself too seriously, you know? She keeps winning award after award and she's so genuinely grateful each time. I also dig the fact that she has zero fear of big hair. 'cause backcombing rocks, people. Accept it. Embrace it. Feel the aerosol hairspray love.
Based on some of the news stories, I'm a little concerned there might be a bit of diva-ness going on with this one. But then again, the press does some wonky things sometimes and Ms. Frost has always struck me as having a genuinely awesome sense of humor. Besides, we need someone to snap folk into line if they make the mistake of trying to stop us from doing whatever the heck we want to do for the night :-)
So that's my list. What do you think? Who would you add? And would you like to reserve a seat?
I guarantee a rip-roaring good time!
