Yes, two versions of The Glamorous Life - the show version and the film version - completely different.

Back from an omelet and a bagel.  Packages haven't arrived yet.  Also went to Staples and got more paper and ink - good coupons this week, plus my Rewards coupons - I saved sixty bucks.

And speaking of that Company documentary...

I've posted this before, but...

I still remember watching this when it originally aired, and how none of my brothers understood it, nor exactly what I was laughing at...

The Making of the Cast album for "Housewives"

That is hysterically funny. I love how one of the women is wearing a "Company" shirt.

Back from the grantwriters' lunch and coffee with Sue at Starbucks.  She's been to London twice since I retired, so we had a lot to talk about.

Back from the regular Tuesday night drinks and meal. This time I had roast beef with roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots and Yorkshire pudding - which was rather filling.

DR Danise I agree with DR TCB. Contact the AC show.

DR Danise - I went ahead and Twitter'd @Anderson and @AndersonCooper as well as cc:'d @AngiesList. You never know who just might be checking their social media accounts.


I wish I could read what you Twittered.

BAD WORD ALERT!!

One of the TV newscasters here thought the past tense of that action was "twat."


Oh my...oh, my, my, my! LOL!

Kathy Griffin frequently uses the term "twatted." ::)

And also on the topic of film noir, I was at Value Village Thrift store last weekend and found this DVD double feature for a couple of dollars.





I had not seen either of these films before, but I sure did enjoy them!

Ricardo Montalban was so dreamy!

I have yet to see GUN CRAZY (although some of my brothers could fit that description). Barry Kroeger always gives me the willies.

And...

I got my two boxes packed up, taped up, labeled and shipped via UPS down to my brother's place in Fairfax, VA. I had originally planned to take care of that stuff in the morning, but when I checked the UPS for shipping estimates, I noticed that's it's no longer automatically one day shipping via ground from NYC to Fairfax. -It just goes from one hub to another (NYC to Dulles). So, I bought two boxes and get them prepped, packed and shipped.

Which means that I can take it easy tomorrow morning before I head to JFK to fly down to IAD. I'll most likely end up at City Bakery for breakfast - especially since I brought back some Made In Atlanta Chocolates for the owner, Maury Rubin. It's become sort of a tradition: I bring him back chocolates from the cities I visit. In turn, he gives a wonderful pat on my hands and free food. :)

I was hoping to see my friend, Brendan, tonight or tomorrow before I left. Alas, he's stuck out in Vegas taking care of some stuff for his new job. He just got hired by Hawaiian Airlines, and he starts training out in Honolulu in two weeks. He thought that if he did get hired, he wouldn't be starting until sometime in January based on their past hiring cycles, but... Surprise! I'm very happy for him especially since his current airline, Colgan - which was a regional carrier for United/Continental - officially closed up shop last Monday. I was hoping to see him to give him a great big hug before he heads west. I'm gonna miss him. He's been a great friend.

*At least now I can get buddy passes to Honolulu. ;)

Instead of shaking hands, he pats your hands with his. He said it was some sort of Jewish thing. -And who am I to question a baker who gives me free food and such? ;)

I'm glad you liked it, DR John G.

I still remember thinking when it originally aired, "Who the hell is gonna get the true "in" joke in this short film?" And it's obvious that Chris Elliott has a fondness for the original source material. :)

Is that the airline that used the slogan, "Colgan take me away!"  That could be why they went out of business.  LOL!
