Lets face it. I would not mind Julia Roberts smile. Or Nicole Kidmans born grace. I would love, when I am running, Audrey Hepburns body, or when I am dancing Marilyn Monroe's.
But really, every other second of every other day, I want to be Barbara Streisand.
I know I mention her all the time but truly- I think she is the MOST beautiful woman in the world. Long neck, long eyes, thick hair and yes- a big nose but a more beautiful nose I don't know if there is. (Unless its Adams.) Even in the 80's with her huge curly red hair she is even gorgeous.
Besides the fact that she's brilliant, she's so darn funny- in real life besides on film. (I know because I have listened to some of her award shows), and she is one of the only modern stars
And every time the woman opens her mouth to sing I get chills all up and down my arms. Goosebumps. Yes, it is a crush.
I have few dreams in my life but the biggest ones? Get married. (check.) Be a mom. (check in 180 and some odd days.) Publish a book. (At least I've written a few.) Meet Barbara Streisand. It sounds ridiculous but I cant write a book without some character, minor or major, loving her music. I have this ridiculous mental image that someday she is going to read one of my books and she will laugh at how much I love her and call my agent and ask if we can do lunch. I told you it was ridiculous.
Adam and I decided that as soon as our baby can hear in the womb, even though we know it can't comprehend words and sounds, it can recognize them. So if its a boy it will be life by Linkin Park. So he loves it when he's born. And if its a girl, life by Barbara Streisand so I have someone to belt out with when I am in the car and cleaning.
