Houston's Only Lazer-Lit Dance Floor ■il & ''■■ by Nancy Ford (appears bi-weekly in ihe Houslon Vowel "There is a time for work, rind a time for love. That leaves no other time. "—Coco Chanel As a result of a nasty nightmare in which I was being chased through Houston by Mattress Mac (who was trying to set fire to me with an Olympic torch,) I was recently challenged (which is so much more civilized than being dared) to endure 48-hour period of time without any sort of informational fix. Nt> TV, newspaper, faxes or cyber-spacing out. In most cases a challenge-in this case a double-dog challenge-wouldn't intim- idaie me. Keep in mind this would be no easy task tor a woman who grew up thinking Lucy Ricardo was her mother. But let me tell you what: even though I found great pleasure in focusing my eyes and attention on something other than a 25-inch glowing screen. I will never do that again. A girl misses way too much. Hand me the remote. Now. Upon returning to the land of cable and picture-iii-picture, I learned I had missed one (if the biggest, if not most intriguing news stories of the year. No. I'm nol talking about tlie Dole-Kemp alliance. (Though I notice that they've been embracing and holding hands in public way too much for two men who are less than supportive of gay rights.) No, I'm talking about the three year old boy who fell into an animal habitat at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. For benefit of those of you who had perhaps also accepted similar no-media-zone challenges and therefore, missed this news, I'll rehash: a female gorilla is being touted by some as having rescued the fallen boy from further harm. Il seems that, upon falling 18 feet through the railing into the pit, the boy was scooped up in the arms of this mama gorilla. She then cradled the unconscious tot for a moment, and then laid him gently and safely on the boulders near the human entrance to the pit. Homo Sapiens then retrieved the boy. who is expected to completely recover physically (if not emotionally.) Had il been me. I probably would have wakened with a headache, wondering why the heck Roddy MacDowell was rocking me in Ins arms. This incident has raised a number of questions about evolution, the innate nur turing capacity of mammals (dolphins have been known for their share of good deeds, too) and the wisdom of returning to the use of chicken wire as a preventative measure. Then there's the matter of whether or not the zoo should invoice the boy's parents for day-care services. Other bulletins I missed while communing with nature: * Oprah Winfrey told Tyra Banks, on national television, that her breasts are "unbelievable." (—Tyra's breasts, not Oprah's own breasts.) Is it just me, or is it indicative to you, too. that not only is Oprah no longer dating Steadman —she's checkin' racks! Supermodel racks, no less! Cool! Chalk up another female talk show host as a potential family member. (Speaking of which, my mother called last week, asking if I'd ever seen "...that new talk show with Rosie O'Donahue? Nancy. I don't what it is, but something about her reminds me of you." Swear to God. this is what she said. Verbatim. Hmmm ... I wonder what that "something" could be? With this, my mother has become the first decidedly straight woman in recorded history to exhibit signs of possessing gaydar.) * And. speaking of supermodels, Kathy Ireland has become the first one to burp on commercial television, in a Baked Lay's ad. She insists that it's a great way to get attention, having learned thai fact the hard way as a result of growing up with a bunch of brothers. If Katliy's brothers are anywhere near as gross as my brothers, expect her to film a sequel plugging Lay's Bean Dip. * Even more evidence has been discovered supporting the existence of life on Mars. Now let's search for signs of life in Washington ... intelligent life, that is. GOP VP wanna-be Jack Kemp stated this weekend that he didn't know Abraham Lincoln personally, but that Bill Clinton was no Abraham Lincoln. Perhaps he should ask Boh Dole for a more personal recollection. Nancy Ford is a Houston-based comedian and writer. She hosts Friends Fest 96, a three day music, comedy, sports,and entertainment camping extrava- ganza, Oct. 4-6 in Dripping Springs. Texas.
