    The Wendy Williams Show

    I got about 7 minutes into that clip, but that lady’s voice was bothering my cat so much that I had to shut it off! I’ll try again tomorrow.

    Same here. I’m invested in this and want to see where they take it next season.

    You will sleep better tonight too with all that fresh air. I did the same a few days ago. The next day I hurt in places that I couldn’t even imagine were getting worked out. Epsom salts help if the same happens to you and I sincerely hope that it doesn’t.

    S11.E03: It's a Clam Shame

    One thing that surprised me at the clambake was that the clams and mussels were served in the same big bowl. Mind you I thought it looked generous and good, but I don’t eat mussels. I don’t enjoy their flavor. Therefore the dipping juice (butter, wine, lemon?) wouldn’t have tasted good to me with the two flavors mixed.

    I have the same dang problem. So I try to get my hair washed first, but I’d love to lay back, relax and let hot water trickle in for warmth. I grok it.

    Fast Food: Do You Want Fries With That?

    I dip my pizza crust into red wine. It softens it a bit and adds oodles of flavor. I also squeeze lemon all over my pizza. It gets rid of too much sweet or saltiness. It also helps to remove excess oils or fats. Yum. Even my granddaughter does this now. The lemon not the wine lol.

    The OA

    I binged this yesterday and was so grateful that my dreams were not nightmares last night. They did include a lot of content from this show, but I seemed (in my altered state) to handle it and direct it, so that I didn’t die or become a victim. That blue house on Knob Hill was wild. I shudder at th thought of ever having to solve something like that. It required so much physical and mental strength. Also bravery. I agree with @Lila Fowler about the seasons end being a bit stumping. I may need to rewatch. i don’t know that a lot of people have seen this show. I don’t see it chatted about a lot in SM and wonder that they will do a part 3. I read that Brit and Zal mapped out a 5 season arc. I hope Brad Pitt and the other producers continue to back this weird little gem. I have a lot more to say about the characters, but will wait until hopefully more people have gotten a chance to watch it

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    OK. It’s over (the Bday party cooking) and this will be the last time that I bother y’all about this. My friend just left so I only had to prep and cook for 6 hours. She did bring asparagus (the really good thick ones) that I wrapped in procuitto and then roasted for 12 minutes. (I wasn’t expecting to add this to or cook it, but I did). I also made the homemade cream puffs with a Kahula cream filling, the caprese skewers (boiled down the balsamic with port wine or make a tasty sauce) and a homemade cheese log covered in cruched pecan nuts. (My kids have pecan trees and more often than not I pick them for cooking when I’m not saving some for the critters in the dead of winter). She did say that she appreciated what I did, and it was heartfelt. I guess sometimes you have to let go of your expectations and be joyful that you really have a good friend who sincerely was grateful that you helped her. Life’s learning lessons.

    Well there’s no compensation except my knowing that I did something nice for a friend. I just thought it was weird that I wasn’t invited. I have just spent a hour prepping and my friend will be here in a hour to help (although I must say it will go a lot faster if I just do it myself). She can make the caprese salad skewers. I’m supplying the fancy skewers. Sorry for posting about this. It was just niggling at me.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I’m not sure where to post this, but I count on y’all to give me a correction or understanding. Two days ago my friend called me excited because they are having a painting party for her niece’s birthday tonight. I know the whole family. She was asked to bring enough party/finger foods for 12 people. She asked if I’d help. She enlisted my help because her budget is too low (as in she’s just bringing a bar of cream cheese for all that I’m making) and she’s not too handy in the kitchen. Her family knows me as the cook (ha ha, I’m probably just average but 100 X better than Jill Duggar). So we went over the menu with me supplying a fair bit of the food. She is coming over in 3 hours for me to do all the cooking. Think a homemade cheese ball, cream puffs, deviled eggs and caprese salad skewers. Now this should take me a few hours and then there’s clean up etc. Am I wrong to think that it’s strange that I didn’t get invited to the party although I’m doing the cooking and supplying a fair bit of the food?

    S11.E03: It's a Clam Shame

    Tinsley has such a good wardrobe and always looks put together. I thought her red sweater outfit at the clambake looked appropriate (and warm as it appeared breezy and chilly). I also thought the dress she wore to Sonja’s party fit her well and looked good on her.

    I was surprised that Dennis bought Brynn a ring as well when her presented Bethenny with an engagement ring. It was thoughtful of him to include her.

    S11.E03: It's a Clam Shame

    I’ve been staring at Sonja’s Sonja Morgan Original dress that she wore to the clambake. I like it, but for the life of me I wouldn’t know what undergarments to wear because it looks a little too see through.

    No, Ramona wasn’t invited. Dorinda likes Grey Goose.

    S11.E03: It's a Clam Shame

    I had a laugh when Bethenny said re: Ramona “ She’s here for the free clams. She’s going to put some in her purse”. Edited to add: Oops, I spoke too soon. Ramona was seen filling her bag with lobsters!
