as a former cheerleader (head cheerleader, in fact), i chose this video promoting the dance off this saturday because i liked their movement and thought it was really smart to go with the uniform they did. it makes it appear that there are 3 times as many people participating.
so the event takes place at noon, saturday in d.c. at the thomas jefferson memorial.
last weekend, the parks police tried to shut down the constitution and resorted to violence and brutality as they attacked citizens who were -- gasp -- dancing.
so this is an event - with solidarity events taking place around the world -- to take back our rights.
okay, continuing my cybill talk.
so many favorite episodes were listed in the e-mails.
micah likes the thanksgiving episode where cybill has to shoot a film with a bratty child star and every 1 bails on her for thanksgiving but every 1 ends up coming together at the last minute to celebrate. that is a good 1. and i like it when cybill puts nair in the kid's conditioner after he demands a rewrite and forces her to work with a snake. i also like it when zoey's date walks in on kevin and rachel making out (and pretending to be the football team captain and the head cheerleader.
brenda said her favorite was the 1 where cybill loses her grandson when she and maryann go shopping at an expensive baby clothes store. terry likes any of the episodes where cybill goes up against her bitter rival (played by morgan fairchild). lonnie likes it when cybill ends up with both ex-husbands living under her roof. ____ likes it when zoey finds out cybill and her 2nd ex-husband (zoey's father) are messing around. ___ writes that 'as a kid of divorce, i really relate to that episode.' tammy insists the best episode is when cybill tries to talk to a pregnant rachel about breast feeding because 'i was that way - grossed out - when i was pregnant and my mom tried to talk to me about anything to do with the pregnancy. and i like any episode where rachel's eating non-stop. i was hungry all the time during both of my pregnancies.' connie likes it when'mrs. roper shows up as cybill'smother.'
there are many, many more. but some of you ask what my favorite 1 is?
i think it's the 1 where cybill's the understudy for the role of mary todd lincoln. then cybill gets a break and gets to go on. but the william morris agent is seated next to mariann and ira who are too loud. and while she's on stage, her cell phone starts ringing. she has to talk into it on stage. everything that can go wrong does, including not being able to get into her dressing room because her daughter and son-in-law are in there making out.
after that, it might be when cybill and maryann go on pilgrimage in the desert or when cybill gets to meet maryann's parents.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
