Updates: News and Sundry

Dearest Mum is in Las Vegas.  Yes, dear blog readers, she departed this morning.  And since self did not get a chance to talk to her last night (last she saw of Dearest Mum, she was disappearing into uncle’s house and waving her fingers at self to dismiss her), self knows not what the big brouhaha of last night was.  All self knows is:

  • Last night, after dragging herself home in some confusion (Weren’t she and Dearest Mum supposed to have dinner in Burlingame?  How then did self end up driving to uncle’s house in Daly City, and going home hungry?), she was nevertheless able to end the night on an “up” note, for it just so happened that hubby had cooked himself a humongous steak, and there was still a lot left over when self arrived home.
  • She saw “Star Trek” again today (60-odd people in the theatre with her:  not baaaad for a weekday!).  And Young Spock is still a dreamboat.  And self is pretty sure that at least 3/4 of the audience had seen the movie at least once before.  But they all still laughed at the funny parts.  And some people still clapped at the end!  Is this movie phenomenal or what?
  • She saw gorgeous Channing Tatum in “G. I. Joe” preview:  that’s a movie she definitely wants to see! (Opening Aug. 7!)
  • Hubby said that maybe David Carradine did not kill himself.
  • @@##!!
  • Apparently Carradine’s manager said that no way would Carradine ever have killed himself!  Calling CSI!
  • Self also learned that”Lost” is taping its last season.  Oh, niece G will be just shattered!  She and her Stanford dorm-mates used to have what they called “Lost” weekends:  they’d borrow the tapes from good ol’ Meyer Library and then watch them, a whole season’s worth, in the dorm!

Self also bought a halibut fillet from a vendor at the San Carlos Farmers Market (the one at the end closest to Blockbuster).  It was a little over a pound and cost $18.  But after hubby grilled it on the De Longhi smokeless indoor grill, self was in heeeaven!

Self just loves summer!  Even though today it was a bit cooler than she likes summer to be (and rained last night, what’s up with that?), and six people got electrocuted by a freak lightning storm in San Bernardino County.  Summer is still the best.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.

    Yeah, what’s up with the David Carradine thing? That’s just so bizarre. I wonder how Hubby’s so sure he wasn’t murdered? What could’ve been so pressing, DM had to dash? When will Star Trek come out on DVD so can play it on infinite loop? How on earth could they possibly end “Lost” now?

    Tsk, tsk. Self, you’ve unearthed so many questions and it’s 12:30am over here.
    You should write cliffhangers for soaps.

    I think they’re ending “Lost” because — the Director wants to do the next “Star Trek” movie?

    Wow, you really think I can write cliffhangers for soaps? Paging Hollywood! 🙂

    Never mind: I’m just happy to know I can entertain!

    Absolutely should find a Hollywood agent!
    On the look-out for Jeremy Piven-type character.

    When did the rational and smart man become hotter than the brash muscleman? 😉

    Love love love young Spock, he stole all the scenes he was in. He made “Live long and prosper” sound like “Up yo’ asses” when he said it to the High Council. You could tell there was an adventurous rebel simmering underneath that calm and collected exterior. Drool.

    Or maybe I just have a thing for point ears, haha.

    Oooh, welcome to the club, Frances!

    I read a Leonard Nimoy interview in which he said that they asked for his input in casting Spock? And Nimoy said that when he saw Quinto, he knew he was the right actor for the role, because he could tell he “had a rich inner life.” And, he said, you needed an actor who could project that, because “Spock never moves.” Wow.

    At least you got to eat dinner! Thanks to the De Longhi smokeless grill. I am going to look for one of those. As for Grasshopper, maybe he was murdered.

    Hi, Kathleen,

    The smokeless grill is great. You can grill indoors, there’s only a little bit of smoke. And we researched different types before settling on the De Longhi. I’ll put a link to my post.

    Oh, Grasshopper, still so sad …
