L'Anniversaire de Mimi

Yes, yes, I'll be back soon enough with a book review, some film write-ups, and my own weighing in on the Hills Have Eyes question, now that I'm back from a long weekend trip to see my mother and brother. It's all coming. But you know what's faster, easier, and more urgently of the moment? Mariah is turning 36. Only a year ago, I was one of a precious handful of Mimiphiles still in this girl's camp. Three years before that, I was still carrying her train, even though she had so suddenly become the Corpse Bride of American pop culture. Now, as she so memorably told Barbara Walters last month, "Well, I guess anybody who counted me out is just going to have to count me back in." Against all odds, guess who's back in the m****af****n' house?!

We belong together, M, despite all the ineffable ways you make things so easy for your enemies. You'll always be my baby, 'cause I'm a sucker for a talented ditz—I think of myself as a sort of talented ditz—and anytime you need a friend, I will be here!

You know what I'm waiting for. So are we going to get a remorselessly brilliant long review taking every possible position into account and still finding the movie vile and stupid, or do we get to thrash this one out in the comments sections? I'm kind of hoping the latter - the former just scares me too much...
