Good news:  I have new spectacles and it is raining.


So, of course, now you've seen where you left your old glasses.

No one has figured out colonize at The Colony?  Or has no one read the notes.  Surely one of our film buffs can figure it out, what with the offer of a sparkling prize and all.

Is it from "When Worlds Collide"?

Shel's Series:  A Light in the Attic, Where the Sidewalk Ends, The Giving Tree, etc.


I liked Shel a lot!  He was a very kind man.  I used to see him at the children's book shop Books of Wonder.

My guess would be THE BLOB.

I've caught up.  Yeah!  Miss Karen listed "Cannery Row".
I did not expect that to be on anyone else's list.

I know what you mean.  Trust me, I know what you mean.

And, according to the previews for next week's show, it seems that he might like you as a person too.  If you know what I mean.  LOL

Now what is this show? I know you had mentioned it before but I have never heard of it and don't know what channel it is on.

I think I might like to see it  ::)

DR Jennifer,

SCRUBS should be a traditional thirty minute episode. You might want to add a minute or two before and after the hour just for time inconsistencies.

It's "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency".  It's on the Oxygen network.  And, yes, it's trash TV.  But trash TV with some nice eye candy.  Janice Dickinson was the first "supermodel", and she's opened her own agency, and made the whole process into a "reality" TV show.  -Just sooooo much drama.  However, with Janice Dickinson, at you're very aware that is it she who is causing all the drama.  And she knows it too.

Here's the link for the show's website: Janice Dickinson

We didn't get any snow, but it's been misting most of the afternoon and is still very cold - 32 right now.

For DR MBarnum re: celebrity big brother in europe.

Britain rallies around 'racism' row Bollywood actress

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070118/wl_afp/afpentertainmentbritain_070118104159

I was just reading that in the newspaper. Shilpa Shetty is a wonderful Indian actress and I have enjoyed her in many films...I actually thought it odd that she would be on Big Brother Celebrity since she is not yet a has been actress...although she is at an age when her roles might start turning from ingenue to "mother" roles (I think she is about mid to late 30s now).

I might have to get this one when it comes out on DVD in England.

SHILPA SHETTY, here with Salman Khan (Shilpa is the one with a shirt on)

Lunch ran a bit long today, but I did have tme to watch several things.

I began with last night's THE KNIGHTS OF PROSPERITY. It was a fun episode as the guys and gal learned some martial arts to be able to deal with Mick Jagger's bodyguards. Some funny sight gags and montages.

Next came last night's CSI: NY, two murders fairly close together but totally unrelated. Both had surprise murderers.

DRs, my Dad has pneumonia, and they fear the cancer has progressed to his lungs.  I just spoke to him, he's weak and he will have a "procedure" tomorrow to drain his lungs (oy!).  I think he could use all the vibes you can send toward Ohio.

Thanks.

Next, I finished TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT. It was an enjoyable AUNTIE MAME-type romp (but not nearly as memorable as AUNTIE MAME). I found it funny that TCM twice edited the word "bitch" from the soundtrack.

I finished the afternoon with the season premiere of ROME which I only got DVRed last night so I could get an HD copy. Much better to see the decapitations, burnings, and other violence that typifies this series. Despite the mayhem (which is part of its spell), I greatly enjoyed it. Sorry to know that the show was not renewed for another season past the one we'll be viewing now.
