My Fair Lady

Remember the guy who couldn't help but tell me my positive attitude was contagious? We're having dinner together on Sunday. After our nice conversation at the party the other day, he said that he'd send me the picture he took of me. Being still in brazen Vegas mood I emailed him yesterday saying, "Dude! Where the hell is my picture? : )" We then proceded to have a very flirty exchange focusing on the fact that coincidentally he too was in Vegas last weekend and that if he had known he could have provided me with "entertainment". Hmmm...

He seems really excited about us getting together so he's earning serious bonus points. That's all I really want - someone who seems genuinely interested in spending time with me and is willing to show me.

In that vein, here are the lyrics from the song "Show Me" (scroll down and click Show Me to listen) from My Fair Lady. It pretty much says what I and some of my girlfriends have been thinking.

Freddy starts out trying to woo Eliza -

"Speak and the world is full of singing, And I'm winging Higher than the birds. Touch and my heart begins to crumble, The heaven's tumble, Darling, and I'm... "


Eliza, frustrated by it all, sings -

"Words! Words! Words! I'm so sick of words! I get words all day through;First from him, now from you! Is that all you blighters can do?

Don't talk of stars Burning above; If you're in love, Show me!

Tell me no dreams Filled with desire. If you're on fire, Show me!

Here we are together in the middle of the night! Don't talk of spring! Just hold me tight! Anyone who's ever been in love'll tell you that This is no time for a chat!

Haven't your lips Longed for my touch? Don't say how much, Show me! Show me! Don't talk of love lasting through time. Make me no undying vow. Show me now!

Sing me no song! Read me no rhyme!Don't waste my time, Show me! Don't talk of June, Don't talk of fall! Don't talk at all! Show me! Never do I ever want to hear another word. There isn't one I haven't heard. Here we are together in what ought to be a dream; Say one more word and I'll scream!

Haven't your arms Hungered for mine? Please don't "expl'ine," Show me! Show me! Don't wait until wrinkles and lines Pop out all over my brow, Show me now!

You go Eliza Doolittle!
