...Just watching "Rachel Ray's Tasty Travels".  Tonight's she's covering L.A...  So far, there are two places she mentioned that I have not had a meal at.  -And that's because those two places weren't open when I was there for What If?

Maybe I should start a food blog.  ;)

Or a business recommending eateries to NY visitors!

Seriously!

Bruce, I, too, had bad feelings about your first choice for Joyce.

I told my DH the whole story about Ms. McA at dinner, and he started singing "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I'll phone ya, tomorrow"...

Edi - Additional trivia bit:  Rebecca Luker met Danny Burstein while they were both appearing in Skip's show Time and Again at the Old Globe in San Diego.

Awwww! They should have that as part of their trivia, with a picture of you (smiling!) and Skip.

I always think "Lurker" when I read her name. Too much time on the internet?

We were talking to a friend today who is dealing with immigration issues and mentioned that we had a friend who had opened a practice specializing in immigration law. He was interested in meeting with DR Cillaliz until I told him she was in Iowa.

"What city?"

"Sioux City."

"Well, that sounds like a good place for a lawyer".

(Obviously his English is pretty good, to make a joke like that!)

TOTD update.

Another MUCH better alternative to Rod Stewart!

I Still associate Sioux City with Square Dance calls in the fifties!

I've never taken part in a Square Dance (Surprise) and hope never to do so!

If no one else has offered I will be very happy to help you out.

Thank you, DR Michael. DR Elmore has graciously helped me out with this, but I do appreciate the offer. Thanks!

I began my evening by finishing up the special features on the HOUSE OF GAMES DVD. This was a video documentary made in 1987 as David mamet was making the film, and we get to see bits of the table read, several rehearsal sessions with the two leads, moments in the filming, and all of this being really good and rare backstage stuff that rarely makes "maing of" featurettes.

Next, I watched last night's BURN NOTICE, another really grand episode. I love the ebb and flow of the action with Michael sometimes riding high aonly to have the rug pulled out from under him and then he manages to rise to the top again. There's great pace and drive to the plotting of these episodes.

Next, I put in the Sherlock Holmes movie THE HOUSE OF FEAR, my all-time favorite of the 14 Holmes-Rathbone pictures. I only got about 35 minutes in, so I'll finish it tomorrow.

Huh? I've square danced, but I never heard about Sioux City associated with it.  Of course there is Sioux City Sue, a song I have to confess I've never heard, lol

MONK had a pretty good episode going until a ridiculous chase across a bumper car track that no one would have attempted while trying to chase a crook.

We saw the murder in the first scene, so again not a traditional mystery, but there were a couple of surprising curve balls thrown into the plot and one very tender and well played scene with Monk and Julie.

"Drama" is NYMF's middle name.


And, lo and behold, after saying that I was surprised that I did not receive any last minute phone calls from people looking for a musical director for their NYMF shows this year... I got two of them today.

Do we think that one of them might be... let me think... real hard... NOEL?  ;D

I enjoyed PSYCH, too, as a childhood nemesis showed up to ask Gus and Shawn for help. Good mystery tonight and very funny.

Hopefully, HOT FUZZ will come tomorrow so I can watch it tomorrow night or Sunday afternoon.

I also have THE MILKY WAY from Criterion to watch at some point tomorrow.

That was the song used as a Square Dance tune DR Cillaliz.

The song was probably best known as sung by Bing Crosby in the mid 40's.

Good heavens, pretty racy lyrics if you ask me


Sioux City Sue
ASCAP 1945
Lyrics by Ray Freedman (aka Max)
Music by Dick Thomas

I drove a herd of cattle down from old Nebraska way
That's how I come to be in the state of Iowa
I met a gal in Iowa, her eyes were big and blue
I asked her what her name was, she said Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

I asked her if she had a beau
She said, "Yes quite a few"
But still I started courtin' my sweet Sioux City Sue
The first time that I stole a kiss, I caught her stealing two
I asked her did she love me, She said "Indeed I do"

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Now I'm admitting Iowa, I owe a lot to you
Cause I come from Nebraska to find Sioux City Sue
I'm gonna rope and tie her up, I'll use my old laso
I'm gonna put my brand on, my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Thanks DR Cillaliz. I have it on record somewhere!
I was born in 1945.  A great year!
