And people wonder why I drink












Today a random blog claims the above photo is of Anderson Cooper and his 25-year-old boyfriend Julio. I'm so massively depressed, although I must say Craiggers is looking remarkably smug at this news.

I happened to be watching Anderson on Larry King Live while reading this hot mess of a blog, and he just used the phrase "You could have stabbed me with a stilletto" when discussing how he felt when he learned of his brother's suicide. Yup, he definitely plays for my team. His discussion of his brother is moving me so much that I think I'll forgive him for his indiscretion, provided he demonstrates that he is sufficiently sorry.

"Stabbed me with a stiletto"??!?!!

OMG; that's a fucking classique! HahaAHAHAHAHaHAHA.

Anyway, the first guy I ever dated - back when I was 17 - claims to have dated Mr. Cooper. He wouldn't tell me, though, if Anderson has gray pubes.

So what calm counsel can this 25 year-old give to a 40 year old? But I will forgive AC because he can't help it, he is a naughty Gemini.

You know, he was telling such a sad story when he said, "You could have stabbed me with a stilletto," that it was almost inappropriate to burst into laughter. Not that it stopped me, of course.

Oh, and Ces, he is 38 (39 tomorrow), the same age as Craiggers. I agree, 25-year-olds can be fun for a fling but give me someone who knows what he is doing any day!

Ces said...

Why won't he just come out and declare himself? Everybody else is talking about it. You know if he was a heterosexual he would have put an end to all the rumors. Why live in the shadows? he does not have to flaunt it or shout it, but at least he will liberate himslef from torment.

I can't believe I am talking about this. I can see jaws dropping.

Unless of course he thinks it is nobody's business and it should not be. This man just wants to live in quiet dignity. I think he has opted for the latter. I won't talk about this anymore because it is really not my business.

We also used a stiletto (vernaculary prounounced estiletto) in H.E. for making holes in fabric. However, one would think that AC used the other stiletto. A lot of Americans would think that, women especially.

Robert, I am well aware of the word's multiple meanings, but in the common vernacular it is most definitely a high-heeled shoe. The only folks who would think of a knife first when one mentions the word "stiletto" would be subscribers to Soldier of Fortune magazine, a limited population to be sure. If AC meant anything other than a girly shoe, then my name is Julio.

christopher, i have to agree with robert. a man with anderson's education and upbringing would know the first and foremost meaning of the word - and to use such a flippant expression to describe learning of his brother's death? no. just no.
i agree at first glance it's funny, but not intentionally.
(and i don't read SoF; i'm a just shakespearean actress -and impossibly well-bred!)

Christopher said...

Sarah, the strange thing is, he had a certain tone to his voice that tells me my hunch is correct (granted, it could be one of the voices in my own head telling me such...there are so many of them after all). He is exceedingly well-educated, and of course is a Vanderbilt, but I swear his inflection went all girly when he said it to the point that I was laughing hysterically. I'm going to see if I can find a clip of this on YouTube to make sure I'm not imagining this. And for all of his education and breeding, he was in EW last week talking about how much he loves the show "Tiara Girls". Bless him, he is smart but loves trash...we so belong together.

I think AC used it’s root meaning. After all he is a Yale grad and joined the Manuscript Society. He may even have one of those Italian stiletto daggers. They are quite fashionable. I think Vito Corleone used that dagger when he avenged the death of his father, brothers and mother on that olive oil businessman. It is AC and how the public perceives him that could lead to the manner of interpreting his term. If George Will and Bill Buckley used the same word, there would be no doubt that they would refer the Italian stiletto dagger and not Paris Hilton’s heels. I wonder if those two have even heard of Paris Hilton not do they care.

Brandon said...

OMG Robert, you're like sooooooooo much smarter than me and I'm like soooooooo jelly!!! OMG I didn't mean to stomp on your balls with my stiletto! LOL!!!!!

Something makes me think that Andy is both smart and witty enough to use the term stiletto as a double entendre, therefore satisfying those in the historical weaponry crowd and the 'mo's, or perhaps just to toy with people and keep them guessing.

Christopher said...

Very good point, Jon! Oh, our Anderson is ever so clever...no wonder I still love him in spite of his other boyfriend!

Um, actually, Christopher, the only meaning I thought of when I read that statement by Mr Cooper was the narrow-bladed knife meaning; the woman's high heel never even crossed my mind. (shrug) (grin)

And until this blog, it never occurred to me that Mr Cooper was gay. Not that I am not (with no rational reason for it) pleased to think that he probably is. Personally, I like silver.

But that "now that he's getting old ... he's almost 40" comment was very below the belt. Geez. Does that lady wanna just throw the gravestone in on me, or what?
