Mrs Du-Ray - I'd have put you in a class far above that of Ms Silverman.

Sad that the GGG only runs in one direction. (Credit to Mr Savage, who has at least mentioned this from time to time.)

Mummy seems to have used up her reasonable allowance.

A quarter of a point to Ms Cummins for not generalizing.

M? Knox - I do like either coming up with new forms of expression (LMB) or at least breathing new life into half-forgotten old ones (FTWL, perhaps my most frequently used acronym, borrowed from Miss Brodie). Your guess makes me think of Alice and Flo's signature line that could be reduced to the acronym KMG - not one I'd use myself, but, now that I think of it, I suspect a number of posters might find it useful when responding to posts they find troll-like.

If tennis follows the lead of politics, the Federer backers will remain so anti-Nadal that Djokovic will end up being deemed GOAT.

As we are now past the century mark, I'll spare a thought for my Serial Complimenter from last year, and hope that he is now receiving all the compliments he could want.

Ms Cute - Well, if there's one thing I emphatically don't know about, it's trimesters.

It's just occurring to me now that the battles between the characters played by Ms Ricci and Ms Kudrow are perhaps reminiscent of those between Lady Susan and Mrs Vernon.

I have made my way almost through the first quarter of the run of Dark Shadows. I'd seen much or most of the early run of the series in re-runs, but during the original run didn't start in until Quentin was already there, which was some time after the departure of Victoria Winters of the opening voice-over. It seems the reason the voice-over stopped beginning, "My name is Victoria Winters..." is that one day when Alexandra Moltke wasn't appearing, she hadn't recorded the voice-over, or something went wrong with the recording, and they had Nancy Barrett fill in, sounding as much like her as possible. It was not an easy catch.

The interviews are perhaps the most fun. Taping conditions (they had less than an hour to record their half-hour show and technology didn't allow them to edit) apparently explain the routine presence of mangled lines. It was a bit reassuring to learn that Ms Moltke found her character (the perpetual victim through a series of always making the wrong choice) a bit drippy to play. Thus far, the closest to a universally-held viewpoint among the cast is that Louis Edmonds (who, as our Ms Wallingford will recall, went on to All My Children, although much later than Hugh Franklin, who had a minor recurring part in DS), as fondly as they remembered him, was a terror to work with, as he either kept cracking them up or missing the marks. Given the series run being from 1966-1971, and recalling how alliterative women's names ("Debbie Downer", for example) had some popularity among SS men at the time (recall Emory's calling himself "Connie Casserole" in The Boys in the Band) and for a while afterwards, I'm almost surprised not to have encountered "Vicky Victim" at any time in memory. Maybe that one would have been a bit too alliterative.

Ms Grizelda - Classics are always nice and safe, and at least your opinions won't have any unintended impact on the culture wars. I haven't seen either film, but will hope for your sake that Ms Kudrow is as good as she was in The Opposite of Sex.
