TV Bitsy Bits
As they say --- "police activity" by my NJ Transit train this morning. Thankfully they held the train at my arrival station instead of the one before it. It was something to do with a non-responsive passenger. I don't think he was non-responsive because he didn't give a nod when asked "howyadoin." The conductors didn't seem all that excited and they weren't helping the person, so my guess is drugs or drunk. Ah, at 7:30 in the morning!
Onto my TV Bitsy Bits
I watched my recorded Bonnie Hunt Show from today. Two things. First, I had forgotten how funny, quick, and sometimes way raunchy Joan Rivers can be. She was a hoot! And then there was Phil Keoghan. It's great to see him in a surrounding other than a welcome mat in a strange country. He's adorable and also has a quick wit. More importantly, he's thrilled with the attention Bonnie gives The Amazing Race and all the teams will go on the show as they get Philiminated. He said the teams are looking forward to it.
My Survivor review on TV Squad is here if you haven't seen it yet. I push monkeys. You've been warned. Reality News Online has an interview with the ousted castaway Carolina. Uh-oh. Those cowboy boots I mocked were JT's, not hers. She borrowed them because her sneakers were wet. Now I have another two things. First, I like JT and hope she didn't give him fungus foot or root rot or something. Second, um ... small feet there, JT? Oh, by the way, she decided God didn't want her to be on the show. Little did she know that no one wanted to listen to her helium voice all season!
My latest TV Shows Off the Beaten Path column is up over on CliqueClack TV. I did this week's one on America's Most Wanted. I foresee running out of shows eventually on the column. Yikes.
Today's musical non sequitur:
Very superstitious, writing's on the wall,
Very superstitious, ladder's 'bout to fall,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past.
-- "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder
