Slink’s Links

Entertainment Weekly fixed the glitch in the system and now contributors’ names pop up under our posts. For a while, I was listed as “Lincee” which made me feel really cool. I was a one-name person like Madonna or Cher. It was a fun run, but now I’m back to people thinking I’m a double first namer. I choose to embrace the East Texas stereotype. And you can embrace my recaps! The first one is HERE and the second is HERE. #clickclickclick

With the majority of the world engrossed in the World Cup, I thought it would be patriotic of me to include a bracket that ranks the players according to their hotness. Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé! Who is your vote?

In honor of the 10 anniversary of The Notebook, my Facebook friend Evangelina sent me Rachel McAdam’s audition tape. It was Allie at first sight.

I went and saw the Jersey Boys movie over the weekend. I give it an enthusiastic “meh” because I was expecting something a little more musical, since it was based on a musical and is about a musical group. If the tour is ever near you, I implore you to go. And I dare you not to fall in love with Frankie Valli! PS: I may love the Broadway dude. PSS: I LOVE HORNS.

Vanity Fair is publishing 23 up-and-comers in their July issue. I’ll take their word, considering they pretty much nailed it for the most part in 2003.

When I was in fourth grade, I won the Citizen Bee award and was called up to the podium in front of the entire school. Of course the principal looked at my uniquely spelled name and enthusiastically instructed “Linky Ray” to join her on stage. I looked around for the foreign exchange student who was lucky enough to win such a prestigious award and was quickly ushered out of my seat by my teacher.

Needless to say, Linky stuck through high school, morphed into Slinky and was later shortened to Slink. To this day, a handful of people call me Slink, including my high school friend Julie, my niece and everyone standing around my niece at any given moment because she has never heard of this stranger named Lincee.

Belated congrats on your prestigious Citizen Award oh so many years ago. I always *thought* you are a good citizen and this clinches it for me.

So how DO you pronounce your uniquely spelled name? I’m guessing it sounds like linseed oil without the oil. Or without the D.

Am I right?
