    She's confessed!! She's no match for my wits!! You've heard of Plato, Socrates, Aristotle? Morons! Bwa-hah-hah!!
    You shouldn't have spilled my secret. I believe you are in PA, aren't you? I have family there - you might want to start looking over your shoulder when you go out.

    I liked her in West Wing too. Did she have psychiatric surgery (I use that term for people who want to improve their looks, versus other reasons for plastic surgery)? I swear her eyes and forehead look unnatural.

    Callie was on the West Wing? I don't recall her character...
    She was Ainsley Hayes - the token Republican.

    I've done that several times to several shows this year. Drive my boyfriend nuts when I do that.

    Callie was the Republican girl in WW. I can't remember her name, but she has some great lines/stories. My fav was when the president came to meet her and she was doing the bossa nova (that's a dance) in her office. Hilarious! Found the link, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUCWczTg4WE.

    Uhoh, DIK (assuming that's your REAL name...) this is getting ugly. Good thing about Penn's Woods is that there are plenty of places to hide and lots of bitter people with guns. I have a big "family" too... Time to vanish...

    I've been watching clips of Ainsley Hayes on Youtube. I miss West Wing. sigh

    Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

    Revised goal, still a challenge.

    Since 2008 was a leap year, there will have been 366 posting days since last December 20th. A 20 posts a day average would bring us to 7320 posts. Let's hit that and see where we are. Remember, if we don't get to 7500 on Saturday, there's always Sunday.

    Native or not, there is NO WAY to become accustomed to those disgusting bugs!

Perhaps to look down the cleavage of his lab techs or hot female suspects that he's brought in for "questioning"? Mrs Turk enjoys making snarky comments about their outfits, e.g. "Who would wear do-me boots and white pants to a crime scene in a Miami drug neighborhood?"
    Oh, this is such a good topic for another thread: Who is your same-sex celebrity crush?

    As I put in the techie gift thread, they LOVE LOVE LOVE the popcorn machine. They say the popcorn tastes just like the movies!

    It's going to live in my dad's office (in the house, not his casino "office") and will be brought out when needed (kinda like show & tell).

    Will they bring it out when we all go over to watch a DVD?

    Me too. That show seriously rocked, and not for the unintentional comedy.

    The Christmas episodes were always strong. Here are the bits I remember:

    Josh: "Mr. President, I'd rather jump off the Washington Monument than spend an afternoon in an old bookstore browsing medieval English authors."
    Bartlett: "It's Christmas, Josh. Who says we can't do both?"

    and the episode where Toby arranges the funeral for the homeless vet who was found in the overcoat Toby gave to Goodwill is a classic too...

    Nah, you gave it away in some other post. You mentioned Bradford and Allentown. (Wait a minute - I'll have to look and see where the nearest state correctional institutions are in those towns... hmmm)

    Yeah, but she gets points because her last name on the show is "Duquesne" - excellent Pennsylvania historical name...

    Oh and yet another thing that cracks me up is their computer technology. I bet even the CIA or NSA do not have wall-sized see-through flat-screen monitors and software that can match fingerprints or bullets in less than 10 seconds and less than 10 keystrokes.

    CathyCA, forgot to pass along best wishes with all the CSI / DIK silliness. Auntie Turk had the same procedure as well - she needed a bit of help with the eye drops afterward but other than that it was a piece of cake...

    Wonderful stuff they can do with eyeballs these days...

    Time is not the only thing that will pass in bathroom breaks.
