...Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200, Do Not Walk Past Me Without Grabbing My Ass...
...and listen to Paula Deen on the "Not My Job" segment of Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! It's priceless.
I always get a little anxious and angry when yankees (Yes, I sometimes talk like Miss Pittypat from Gone with the Wind... Get used to it...) talk to Paula and begin to slightly make fun of her and her "one stick of butter, two cups of sour cream and three Krispy Kreme donuts" recipes. But as you an hear in the clip, Paula wins them over. She is personable and funny and cute and reminds me of my mama. Always.
And since I live 550 miles from Mama, Paula is a cure for my ever-present homesickness. Every day. I love her. Enjoy the clip and "Best dishes from my kitchen to yours!"
P.S. If you saw Paula on Kathy Griffin's My Life on the D-List a few weeks ago, you might have recognized Paula's cute assistant Brandon Branch from right here at ARE YOU THERE, BLOG. He's the same Brandon Branch that I wrote about years ago.
That's him in the v-neck, white t-shirt and blazer in the picture below. Hot, huh?
I went to a Paula Deen book signing here in town and he was standing by the table. When I walked up with my Lady and Sons t-shirt on, Brandon said, "Nice shirt." I was too starstruck with Paula to fully acknowledge Brandon's compliment. He's so damn attractive! I should have said...
"You like my shirt? It would look better on your bedroom floor."
But alas, I missed my opportunity.
