lyndon and deep throat

mos prince charmin's passions

i don't drag mini mo's daddy into blogdom much because he's a rather private person and all and the truth be told, besides providing the dollars deemed desirable to do doo dads for delivery via download, he delights in doing deeds he dreams do-able while his dear duo designs doo dads and daydreams about dating. to make it clear - it is me, mo, designing the doo dads and mini mo day dreaming about the day i decide she can date. no need to write in to a mail box already doing double duty to damn me for demanding mini mo also desire to design doo dads or that i desire to date. no - the body snatcher that still resides within our mini mo doesn't do doo dads - at least during the day and me - mo - i decided to dump dating shortly after i dined with mini mo's daddy on that blind date over a decade ago.

but because double dozens have inquired about mini mo's daddy and in honor of the event occurring that he, himself, has dreamed of long before our first delightful date, i decided to dedicate todays diatrabe to mini mo's daddy.

i have had a passion for many things in my life but one that has never taken much of a hold on me is politics. even so, i seem to have parcels of printed pictures packed from my past of me prancing and parading with this particular type of person - you know - those with a political passion. knowing that this was in my past should have given me a premonition i'd possibly pick a partner who was particular to the same, especially since after breaking my back into pieces, dashing dare devils were a bit too dangerous. and shortly after that blind date, after already decidin to designate this dude the daddy of future mini mos, i discovered that i was doomed for a portion of my domestic abode to be decorated with another sort of doo dad - those from a devoted democrat.

up until the honeymoon, i didn't know the full depth of this dedication. not that i was duped - i was just being dazzled daily. but it all became clear when waking to the dawn of a new day and discovering mini mo's future father watching his favorite DVDs. and it wasn't as if he was just biding his time doin' so while he waited for his new bride to awaken - no - that just was not the case. it seems this prince charming i had promised to love and honor for all the remainin' days of my life had the odd habit of celebrating the happy times in his life by watching two productions and just couldn't wait to share them with his new bride.

and that's how it came to be that my first morning as a married mo, i found myself watching 'all the president's men' and the 'biography of lyndon johnson'. and since that day, which doesn't seem that long ago, i have had the pleasure of watching these same performances so many times, or hearing their soundtracks drift from another room, that i know all the parts by heart, which might just come in handy if i ever want to audition for a remake of something similar. i could, after all these years, make a decent lady bird with no problem but haven't quite picked which part i'd have to try out for in the other. maybe deep throat since that could be played by really anybody...well...it could have until now.

when you love someone, it is important to tolerate their passions and i have had no problem watching these same two movies over and over when they are chosen as our evening entertainment, possibly because it is fascinatin' to try to figure out how a grown man could watch the same thing over and over again - you know - like when a kid gets a new disney movie and watches it so many times in a row that the sickingly sweet happy songs are stuck in your head for days on end and you can do dick van dyke's chimney sweep dance from beginning to end if ever there was a need but to date i have not been asked to demonstrate this ability.

but the constant quotin of things LBJ said throughout his life can get a bit old. like, if anything such as, "where's your car?" is said to mini mo's daddy, he never fails to say, "they're all my cars, son." this would be in reference to the time LBJ was asked in the midst of many airplanes sitting on a runway, "where's your plane sir" and he answered, being the president and all, "they're all my planes son". or if by chance his no longer new bride might be testing his patience, out flies, "don't you rile me up now bird!", this of course in reference to somethin' LBJ was known to say to lady bird.

but even all these silly quotes coming out of the mouth of this otherwise highly intelligent man couldn't hold a candle to decidin', without any prior discussion with me, mo, that his first born child would have the honor of bein' named lyndon. of course this made my payers for a girl become much louder until i saw the label he had attached to the video of the future mini's first ultrasound...it read 'lyndon or lady bird jackson'.

me and mini mo thank our lucky stars that she decided to make her entrance into the world a month early and bein' that her daddy was so overwhelmed with what was now his favorite thing to watch - that being the new mini - he forgot all about his previous desire to attach the president's wife's nickname to this 5 pound child. he started up about it again when we hoped to follow mini mo with more but mini ended up being an only. but, lookin' back, if i had been told i could have gotten another four if i promised to have them answer to lyndon, and lady, lucy and lynda bird, well, i would have gladly done so without any problem. i did go on and get mini's dad two big black dogs and lady bird and lucy bird do come running when their names are called.

but back to the momentous event mini mo's dad has been celebratin'. i have sat patiently over the years with this democrat listening to talk of watergate. i probably know more about it than most non-politically passioned women i'm sure. and at one time or another i have heard the cases bein' made from just about everyone from george bush senior to captain kangaroo being the person behind deep throat altho i must admit, the case for the captain was rather weak. whatever....the point is that for thirty somethin' years mini mo's dad has pondered long and hard about this deep throat person when i'm sure many of you maybe never thought about it at all unless it was brought to your attention. and sometimes it would just come out of the blue...like we would be watching the news or whatever and i'd hear, 'well that could be him!". and i'd say ' what are you talkin' about mini mo's dad?...and he'd say, as if i hadn't been payin' attention to the conversation he must've been havin' with himself - "DEEP THROAT MO...DEEP THROAT." hmmmm...good thing he held this odd behavior to himself until i had already started packin' in the doo dads too tight to think about makin a move.

and so, after all these years havin' this big mystery to wonder and talk about, mini's dad now has the answer. i'm not sure yet what effect this unveilin' will have on the poor guy long term....i think he might just start missin' the question...although i pray he doesn't replace it with the whole 'who shot kennedy' thing or tryin to find the answer to crop circles or whatever. for the time bein' he just wants to keep talkin' about it and i do believe within the next week i'll see him bringing in a new copy of 'all the president's men' into the television-on-all-the-time room because the currently owned one is gettin quite the workout.

i hear those two fellas that kept mr. throat secret all these years are comin' out with another book and lordy lordy i hope they allow it to be made into a movie and that the movie, if made, is a good one because we could sorely use some new viewin' material around here. and who knows, maybe they'll have a part for a lady bird type person and i can audition for the part.

so that's all about mini's daddy and deep throat to date - hope you weren't thinkin' it was that other deep throat. i guess i should be glad mini's dad doesn't have a passion for THOSE types of productions. packed in doo dads or not - that just wouldn't do!

gotta run now - i can hear jo's music blastin' from the trailer on the street all the way up here to the house and i need to send someone down to yank the electricity. i've really had my hands full since her arrival. she did up mini and gigi's hair in big ol' beehives last might and gigi's mom had a hissy. but i'll tell you all about that next.

again, i appreciate you stoppin' by and thank you for all your comments!

Dandy blog my dear Mo. I daresay this one has given me a big warm fuzzy, which is highly preferable to the dry heaves that the Digital Watergate brought on!

I can hear the sounds emanating from the Jackson residence now... MiniMo and Gigi repairing their beehives whilst giggling about boys, Lyndon and MiniMo's Daddy happy in the TV-always-on room, the keyboard and mouse alternating happily in the dance of doo dad creation, the un-dog gently hinting for an adventure in the great outdoors, and one of those rodents with the fluffy tails scampering between rooms trying to decide which nut to add to his collection next. Oh right, Jo's in town -- that makes it easy!

Mo - you've done it! I didn't think anyone could - to talk about politics without really talking about politics!!!

I still don't know what I feel about Deep Throat outing himself - friend or foe? Who knows?

The movies I tolerate from Mr. PachiMac is "Paint Your Wagon" and anything to do with military airplanes!! LOL!I think we all do it!

Billie said...

Oh, MO!! Mini Mo's Dad is going to be SO PROUD to be blogged about! Maybe he'll talk about THAT instead, how all of Mo's doo dad devotees came and read all about his DEPTH of knowledge on all things Lyndon B. Johnson, and were duly downright impressed!

Is there a husband out there who doesn't quote movies... my husband seems to think that a movie quote is ocassionally better than actual conversation, at times. He sometimes says something, then I respond with an answer, like people do in normal conversation... and he yells "That's not it! The next line is...." Hmph. And here I thought he was talking to me!!

Thank you Mo, for the neverending smiles and giggles.

MO you are such a hoot! I belive you could make any subject interesting and funny. At our house its John Wayne movies! At least there are a lot of them so I don't have to watch the same one over and over. If I see one coming on I grab a book and act like I'm watching the movie when I'm actually reading... He'll say "I thought you were going to watch this with me and I'll reply "you know I can watch TV and read at the same time - I've done it for years. lol

Well Mo, I realize I am blessed to have a man that has more than two favorite movies... Living in a house w/4 male characters to compete with, there are far too few chick flicks around!

Having more favorites means there are more lines to keep track of for the type of 'pseudo conversation' Billie spoke of earlier!

Great blog... I think all of us that have dh's can identify w/your plight.

I guess you could make some Texas type doo dads to get into the spirit of LBJ and show Mr. Mo he's loved, but that's probably taking things a bit too far... don't you think?

Mo you really know how to post a blog and make it a good one!!! Always love to hear about MR MO! And if ever he does attempt at a dandy doo dad or not. LOL

I had wondered if mini mo was a mini doodadder herself..or if MR MO actually attempted a doo dad once in awhile, but I guess you remain the queen of doodads!!! HOORAY!!!! Thanks for this!

Off to make some shabbiness.....

Lesliephx said...

Oh I was laughing so hard, I have tears streaming down my cheeks. I just love how you put it all in perspective.

BetteD said...

Whew! sure glad you qualified which deep throat production you'd be willing to audition for!!! hehe!! Why is it that men can like the same thing over and over again ad nauseum?! My Dh likes kielbasa and always the same way - in the crockpot with sauerkraut. I used to like the stuff-but can't even stand the sight of it anymore!!

It makes me have to worry about my husband. The movies he does repeatedly are :
1. Top Gun (he is a jet engine specialist, I can see this one)
2. BRAVEHEART
and..this is the kicker.....
3. Fifty first dates. He loves the part where Ula tells his chidren to go back down in the ocean and find his...er..uh.....lower parts. he rewinds it OVER and OVER.

I think I would prefer All The President's Men :)
oh and MO..you REAlLY outdid yourself on the laughter scale with :so that's all about mini's daddy and deep throat to date - hope you weren't thinkin' it was that other deep throat. i guess i should be glad mini's dad doesn't have a passion for THOSE types of productions. packed in doo dads or not - that just wouldn't do!

I'll be laughing about that one i my sleep!

Well! I liked the President's Men and have alsways wondered who deepthroat is. Come to think about it, Mo, you kinda remind me of Lady Bird or perhaps the lovely Lucy Bird (were they all birds?) Or maybe you should just the stay the lovely dulcinea. (DQ)

scrapbookmom said...

Is it crazy that I've never seen All the President's Men? I don't know why I haven't.....I just never thought about it. But, your hubby will be so proud to be blogged about. They love that kind of thing. :) Great blog you have here though by the way. I love your work.

My husband and I met when we both worked at the Watergate Office Building in 1978. Our office was on the 8th floor, and I believe the Watergate breakin was on the 7th floor(?). Whenever Watergate was mentioned, the usual response was, "We were above all that!"

I'm the movie junkie in our house - and the three that I watch over and over are Dirty Dancing, Love Actually, and The Full Monty. My husband probably only watches 1 or 2 movies a year - Poor Guy!

Mo - If you ever need a photo of the Watergate, let me know. I'll bet you could come up with some funny layouts for your husband!

Oh my Dear Mo! Doncha know!I shake my head in disbelief.... Mini Mo's Daddy must still be in shock and the question hasn't hit him yet... and the question will be eternal, long after Mr. Deep Throat Head of the FBI Man and his money grubbin' daughter are gone! The question is and will continue to be "Was it a good thing"

Was it a good thing that Mr. Deep Throat allowed Mr. Deep Throats daughter to talk him into spillin' th-u beans (cuz ya know, she thinks there might be a book deal there and then a screen play and then she will be off to Follywood!) even after he made Big Brother promise to never mention his real identiy while he was alive or he would never spill th-u beans... hmmm makes me think Mr Deep Throat's Daughter might think he's about to push up daisies, meet his maker,find himself toes up or be invited to a GRAND tie party, 'cuz a book writen with words from Big Daddy Deep Throat's mouth as he is living is worth much bling than if it is writen from Big Brothers account sprinkled with Mr. Deep Troat's Daughter's hear say peppered though out... doncha think?...

So we'll be hush hush here and not let on to Mini MO's dad that we know the question!

And Jana, oh Jana our betrothed's should really know each other although, mine, his name is Herman, but he goes by Tripp.. prefers his westerns a bit older and although he is determined to tell me everytime one is on that he hates spaghetti westerns, he will watch then all day long not even stoppin' to eat. Just shoveling food in his mouth a we watches a bad movie that he has probably watched a hundred times. And I know he has probably watched it this many times because he know every scene where there is a faux paux by the editor or the prps people... Ok watch this now.. see that gun, thats not the gun he had when he got ther... look you can tell they flpped this frame... geez.. that gun wasn't even made when this took place.. etc etc His favorite is True grit and just like jannas betrothed, he can recite every word along with the movie. He is also quite fond of throwing out movie quotes in everyday conversation.So what's it gonna be Little Sister? What's yer intention? You don't think I'm gonna keep you in whiskey do ya? Yer to old and fat to be jumpin horse! But then he also tends to start his sentences in the middle..

Well Mamma Mo this concludes my first comment to your blog! Oh and if you are looking for a stimulating life long conversation.... ask Mini Mo's daddy if "it" was a good thing or a bad thing!
