Discretion Before Noon--it sounds like a very sophisticated play starring Claudette Colbert and Rex Harrison.

Good morning, all!  I slept badly with dreams about a bossy brother.  The one thing I look forward to today is a reading of a new musical by a few of  the creators of a favorite musical of mine, FOR THE LOVE OF TIFFANY. I have some estate errands to do this morning, then a trek to Toyland for a CD I left in the office.  The reading is at 3, and I have several friends, besides the writers, performing in it.

TOD:  A Tale of Two Cities (BBC/Masterpiece Theatre with James Wilby)
          Marat/Sade (Royal Shakespeare Co.)
          Gone With the Wind
          1776
          Queen Margot
          Children of Paradise
          Lady Jane
          I, Claudius
          King of Kings

Discretion Before Noon

HHW is a global franchise.  It's always past Noon somewhere.  We know no discretion!

Happy Birthday, DR Danise! If I were you I'd consume an entire chocolate cheesecake today. Chocolate is an antidepressant, you know.

Gone With the Wind....thanks for the reminder DR ELMORE.

And of course in the film version of DISCRETION BEFORE NOON the Colbert and Harrison parts would have been taken by Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood.

AMAZING RACE SPOILERS from last night's FINALE.

I am not too happy with the winners. Even though i actually think that eric is a pretty good competitor (coming in 1st and 2nd is quite a task).

I just didn't like how the whole finale was set up. Oh and btw, the winners are no longer a couple!

It was stupid to have them fly to 2 different cities. The editors tried so hard to equalize the teams that it did not let the best team rise to the top. They kept getting equalized at every turn. To me there should be a roadblock, detour and final task at the last city. Not just some stupid timed task.  Geez they really wanted all the teams to arrive at the finish together didn't they!

They really made it so hawaii meant nothing (mirna did some great flight switching). And eric did do well at the paddling (although that was meant for a man).

So they all get on the same flight to oakland. And then only 1 task??? And to make it worse if you didn't get it in 10 minutes you still got the clue??  And then a stupid taxi to the finish (no running the streets).

They really need to figure out how to do a real finale. It's like all they wanted was for it to be close, instead of them actually wanting the best team to win.

I guess i'm happy mirna did not win.

Oh and the bogus editing showing eric's taxi stopping at red lights, while the BQs were going through greens. I think they finished 10 minutes behind (which makes little sense if they left 2 minutes after E&D).

Happy Birthday, DR Danise! If I were you I'd consume an entire chocolate cheesecake today. Chocolate is an antidepressant, you know.

It's also a STIMULANT!!! as I found out last night.  For my niece and nephew's birthday party yesterday, we got a Coldstone Creamery cake called Midnight Delight:



It was sooooo chocolatety, that it kept me up for most of the night. It was good, though.

AMAZING RACE SPOILERS from last night's FINALE.



Oh, don't get me started...

But since you did...Yeah, I'm also extremely unhappy about the outcome.  IMHO, E & D did not deserve to be in the final three, let alone win.  I don't know this for sure, but I think they are the only winners of TAR that never won a single previous leg.  They've been unimpressive throughout and that's aside from Eric's obnoxiousness and Danielle's helplessness and cluelessness.  Believe it or not, I would have preferred to see Mirna and Schmirna win over these two dolts.

Evidently, the gathered eliminated teams felt the same way.  Didja notice how the Blondies got the more enthusiastic greeting of applause when they ran in at second place?  And how Phil had to rally the crowd up to get some more positive reaction for E & D?

Not at all surprised that E & D are no longer a couple.  He's probably going to blow away his winnings with his boy buddy Jeremy.

I don't sound too bitter, do I?
