The Manolo Twitters

Manolo says, here is the briefest taste of what you are missing if you are not following the 140-character musings of the Manolo on Twitter.

The movie “The Perfect Getaway” looks like Deliverance with hot chicks, no Burt Reynolds, and no squealing like the pig.

Topol is still performing the lead in Fiddler on the Roof? How is that even possible? http://www.fiddlerontour.com/

*****

Sally Field + The Unsinkable Molly Brown – Sanity & Decorum = Mary Murphy

*****

Boulevardiers vs. Flaneurs = Shakers vs. Quakers. Non-violent sects occupying the same continuum of faith.

*****

RT @EdDriscoll If social class, wealth & taste make up a boulevardier, it is a perceptive mind that defines a flaneur http://twurl.nl/mk3bq6

To the Chubby Blonde Lady, please do not use the hem of your sundress to clean your glasses. The Manolo can see your underpants.

*****

Serendipity. The Manolo turned on America’s Got Talent (for his weekly Hasslehoff fix) & there was the 53-year-old break dancer getting down

*****

How to ridicule dumb lyrics? Steve Allen, 1956, http://bit.ly/a1Lg0 – Alanis Morrisette , 2007, http://bit.ly/Jpp6u Alanis for the win!

*****

California Fashion Trend Alert: Parasols, formerly only carried by Asian ladies, are now being carried by non-Asian ladies.

*****

Dear Calif Highway Patrol officers sitting at the next table: The Manolo does not wish to hear ribald tales of your youthful sexual exploits

*****

Dear Chubby Man with the pencil thin beard: Sir, you are mistaken if you believe careful trimming can make others believe you have the chin.

Go follow the Manolo’s tweets now!

    Ah yes, the ageless Topol. According to interviews in my local newspaper when the Fiddler touring company came through town, Topol was only in his mid-30s when he first played Tevye. He is now 74 and still going strong, which is inspiring.

    Psst! Dear Manolo, parasols have long been in use by the non-Asian ladies, as well as the Asian ladies. It is true that in the late 20th C there were not many of us, but there were many many many in the 19th and early 20th centuries. La BellaDonna, she has watched the parasols blossom like the flowers on the sidewalks of the city, and has been very happy to see it. The skin cancer, it is not so flattering.
