Slacks

Slacks

As long as people continue to have two legs, pants will never go out of style.  Nevertheless, it would make me happy if people started calling them “slacks” again — I just like to say the word!  Slacks, slacks, slacks . . .

Happy birthday, Chrissy Teigen.  My friend Rusty posed for a similar shot, only with strategically-placed crabs . . .

Country Dancing

Country Dancing

I’m sure that everyone will believe that I’m joking when I say this, but I really wish that country dancing would come back into style!  And not just the country line-dancing that became popular a few decades ago, but also square dancing.  It’s even more fun than it looks, if that’s even possible . . .

Today’s episode of “The Young and the Restless” is a throwback.  The show often plays so-called “classic” episodes on American holidays.  I caught a couple minutes of it yesterday (it airs a day earlier in Canada than it does in the U.S.), and it made me long for the day when glamour used to be a part of daytime TV.

Soaps are terrible right now.  Y&R executive producer Jill Farren Phelps has turned Genoa City into a low-budget wasteland, populated by dull, uninteresting people who wouldn’t know glamour if it shot them dead while wearing a fabulous wedding dress.  “Days of Our Lives” is marginally better because it’s retained its campy sense of humor, but the rest are just sad.

I hate to hear people claiming that daytime drama is a dying genre.  If something doesn’t work, just f***ing fix it, already.  And whatever you do, don’t replace it with another show where a panel of women complain that things don’t work.

Bring back soaps!
