The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The 2.29-night stand

VibeOK, the section of NewsOK.com that's aimed at young, happenin' kids (pardon me while I hurl), is asking, in the wake of the latest Britney Spears debacle: "If you could marry a pop star for 55 hours, who would it be?"

A dozen choices (six male, six female) are offered, none of them especially inspiring, but if I had two days and change, I suppose the least annoying of the bunch would be Beyoncé Knowles, who is easy on the eyes and generally not known as a pain in the neck.

On the other hand, I could think of a dozen bloggers more worthy of my time, though I am no more likely to win their hearts than Beyoncé's.

TrackBacks if any:

I chose Christina. I like my girls "Drrty" Unbelievabley over 50% chose Avril Lavigne! There's no way I could be with a girl who has no idea who David Bowie is.

Then again, how many of them have any idea who Jim Bowie is?

Or Bowie Kuhn?

It all depends on what the plans are for those hours. If she's gonna want me to re-arrange the furniture in the bedroom, install new carpet in the living room, or paint the garage, well then, the deal is off.
