Val’s Voice – Jan. 12, 2007


Hey gang…

UGH! A FULL week of work!  Don’t you agree that we should have a holiday weekend EVERY MONTH?

Well, checked out the movie “DREAM GIRLS” this weekend. I have to say, I have mixed reviews on this movie (and that is just from myself). heehee. I definitely thought there were some excellent performances, but I didn’t really care too much for the constant singing! I mean really folks…how would you all like it if I were to sing my EVERY thought to you? See? You feel me now, don’t you?

Yes, I DO agree with the critics AND the entire audience (who by the way applauded during the movie) that EFFIE (Jennifer Hudson) steals the show with that one performance and then Beyonce’ has her scene stealer with the song "LISTEN." Eddie Murphy was very good too. Although, I am still not sure how I feel about him since he had that gay foo-pah.

Well, well…"THEL-WORD" is back…FINALLY! One good thing to note about this is that the guy at Comcast said there were quite a few customers turning on SHOWTIME yesterday. I do hope they are seeing this a GOOD thing!

A few items that I shall note on this subject…could Marina, quite possibly be PAPI? Didn’t Jenny used to sit on her lap and call her that? heehee. Can you believe Jenny would turn down a threeway? (THAT INCLUDED MARINA)  Especially, since she has been tied to the bed since MAX became a man AND a VOYEUR!? And, what about Shane, now that she is too ‘doped up’ to ‘get it up’, will she lose her title as the biggest tramp in LA? Helena should prove to be a hoot this year, since she is now broke. (If you consider a $3500 credit card as poor.) Tina has turned into every man’s (wet) dream! You know the ones who always say, “Three minutes with me and you will be a changed woman!" I personally think they should have kept Bette and Tina together, after all, they were the longest relationship on the show! And we ALL know lesbians are nesters! Of course now, I just want to be rid of Tina altogether. Hmmm…come to think of it, does she remind any of you of anybody? And one last note about this week….WHERE THE HELL WAS CYBIL SHEPHERD?

Has anyone been to the Cheesecake Factory yet? YUM!! You simply MUST try the macaroni/cheese ball appetizer! Their menu was so large that I had to use my library card to check it out. LOL The food is brought out in HUGE portions! I actually, split my dinner and salad and still couldn’t eat it all. The brown bread is delicious, reminding me of the bread RUBY TUESDAY used to offer. The interior decorating was very nice. It is somewhat noisy, but then again, I guess you can’t have it all. One other thing to keep in mind, you should probably go at noon, if you want to eat by 5 p.m.!

Don’t forget to check out the O&A Today Show this weekend. This month’s topics include, Domestic Violence, financial tips, keeping fit and two very dynamic roundtable discussions. Good stuff!
