TV Squad, CliqueClack TV, and Signs of the Times


Roaming the neighborhood near my orthopedic surgeon's office yesterday, I found these two signs about a block apart. The first one is so welcoming, so um ... bilingually friendly. The second is forbidding. Sure enough, as I was shooting the second sign, a very vicious watchdog started barking furiously at me. But they're both typically New Jersey -- a rising Latino immigrant population meets The Sopranos.

My latest Survivor review
is up over on TV Squad for your perusal. Later today (not sure when), my latest TV Shows Off the Beaten Path column will go live over on CliqueClack TV.

As for me, I'll be heading out to the vascular surgeon appointment before long. I'll let you know when I know.

Good luck, Jackie. I have been MIA for a bit, and just caught up on your latest news...

You are in my thoughts today.

meb said...

No fair rbennie... I was still back on the previous post waiting for someone to talk again... I coulda been a contender (for first place).

orkmommy, how come you're not commenting on Greys...

jackie... let us know what the doc says immediately upon your return home. Love the signs...

RBennie said...

LOL MEB. You gotta be quicker than that! I watched Grey's last night. I didn't realize anyone was really commenting about it though. I'll leave my comments on that post.

Patty said...

Jackie-I hope things are going in your favor today.

The signs were great!

RBennie said...

You might call me perverted, but I took that first sign to mean something totally different, LOL.

meb said...

rbennie... shame on you...

PDX Granny said...

Jackie, I've been praying all sorts of things for you this morning - good news; good health; good doctors; peace of mind; comfort; calmness; and generally good wishes.

I'm sure you'll let us know as soon as you can, but we're all concerned and anxious to hear the outcome of your tests.

Margo said...

My WV is crownes. I guess I really am a princess now.

RBennie said...

In case I don't get a chance to pop in again before TAR on Sunday, I hope everyone has a great weekend!

ORKMommy said...

I don't comment on Grey's because I forget about the post. I am watching every single week so I'll try to head over there when I get a chance...

joy n said...

That second sign is a riot, though I think I'd cross the street and walk on the other side after seeing it, dog or no dog.

Great survivor review! Liked your other column on those VH1 shows, too, and have to admit, I've watched a bunch of them.

Jackie...

I'm so glad to hear the good news. I know you've been anxious to get off that "rat poison" with all of it's side effects. How funny that you happened to see that sign advertising rat poison. Now I'm wondering what kind of people shop there. ;)

The photo of those knee implements of destruction are very scary. They look like they should be in some slasher Halloween movie. I hope you didn't see them before your surgery. My husband almost passed out the first time he saw his x-ray of the two steel rods screwed right into his spine. The first thing I noticed was that one of the screws was put in crooked. Isn't that just like a Virgo?

I hope you keep getting more good news and all goes fine your first week back at work.

Have a good weekend all!
