Our Friday Frivolity Host theme this week is favorite comediennes. With the passing of Gene Wilder last week, I, like many people my age, have been thinking about his first wife, Gilda Radner. Which lead me to think about Saturday Night Live and all of the funny sketches through the years. So, for you youngsters out there I thought I'd share some of my favorite recurring recurring female SNL characters from the "olden" days. And, just a hint, I am using the term "female" loosely.
Roseann Rosannadana - Gilda Radner
I almost went with her Miss Emily Litella character which is another one I love but, ... oh, never mind.
Prymaat Conehead - Jane Curtin
Actually my favorite Jane Curtin moments on SNL are her deadpan Weekend Updates and Point Counterpoint. But my theme is characters.
The Sweeney Sisters - Nora Dunn and Jan Hook
Oddly enough I hear their rendition of Clang Clang Clang Went the Trolley in my head when I think of the song instead of Judy Garland's.
I am still trying to get the video to load but, if it still isn't appearing here - Google it!
Pat - Julia Sweeney
Well, I did say I was using the term female loosely. We may not ever know Pat's gender but we do know Julia Sweeney was female and she rocked it as the androgynous Pat.

Even though we are well into September, I still chose 30 Activities You Can Do With Your Kids in September by Perfectly Imbalanced because its a fun list that doesn't have to be limited to September and can stretch into the rest of Autumn. And, they are still fun activities even if you don't have kids at home. My personal favorite is "Go to a doughnut shop and try one you’ve never had before". Oh yeah, we need to do that this weekend.

I'd thought about going with Gilda because of Gene's passing, too, but then got derailed from that idea when I saw the preview to Mascots. Have you ever read any of Gene's books? G and I read them all a couple of years ago - and I'm not just talking about the Gilda books, but about his fiction stuff, too. Hmmm, maybe we should do a Gene week next month?
I have not read his books, but putting it on my Good Reads list. I get such good ideas from you, Jessica and Sarah. Maybe we need a book theme too.
