And looking more and more attractive every time she opens her mouth. "Yes, honey, you're an amazing performer as well."

I have to say, Entertainer Esme, with her line of chorus boys in taped-on stovepipe hats, is one of the best things to hit this strip in a long time. But, Derek, let me warn you about falling for a stage performer. On stage, sure, she's sexy and smiling and oh so into you. But three weeks into the relationship you're going to start to learn some things. Either 1) she's so ambitious for public affection that she has no idea how to sustain an intimate relationship, or 2) her craft is merely compensation for massive insecurity, and she may even begin to doubt that you love her more than your wife.

Derek, if you want to upset Katie, stick with cigarettes. Much less complicated.

Oh, I do hope we get to hear Ginger (Trademark Sandi Ego) sing the entire song. First performer, first verse, and the audience is literally stunned. By the end of the show, the audience will be nothing more than a gelatinous blob dripping under their seats.

Citizens of Santa Royale, please complete this lyric: "Life is like..."

So, "Good" has passed "Love" with a double appearance today! "Looking forward" didn't qualify for this competition, but it's kind of a shame because it keeps showing up, and I'm starting to feel bad for it.

This show makes me miss my daughter who is graduating from BYU next week. I'll pick her up and drive with her across the country back home to New Jersey. I'm looking forward to it. Ladies and gentlemen, Maggie Andersen:

The Activities Guide says this is a variety of acts, and given that Mary spent a lot of time watching Ziegfeld's Follies on the Great White Way, she knows when a variety show is Broadway quality.

Later? If you don't hurry now, you won't have good seats for tonight's musical production of "Titanic!"

For those keeping score (and I am):

Good save, Mary. For a moment, I thought you were criticizing the buffet. Do you ever get the feeling that this is just some tax write-off for Karen Moy's last vacation?

This! This is why! This is why Karen Moy deserves a Pulitzer Prize or something. Instead of being boxed in by established literary conventions and showing us the towel folding demonstration, she uses beautiful descriptive language ("very nice!") to paint a picture, allowing us to visualize the towel folding demonstration ourselves! After eight days of build up, I never expected to be so not disappointed! Maybe next week someone can describe the formal dress up dinner (very nice!).
