Ice Ice Baby

Still in California. Meeting ended today and I feel refreshed. My flight leaves tomorrow at 8AM and I can't wait to see D and the kids. I just had to write about the TV show that I'm watching called "Hit Me Baby One More Time". It takes several acts that were one-hit wonders in the 80's and have them sing their big pop song. They then come back and perform a more recent hit and the audience votes who goes on to the next round. Tonight they have Loverboy, Arrested Development, Flock of Seagulls, and Tiffany. WOW. The rock lifestyle has definitely been hard for some of these acts. The lead singer of Loverboy looked as if he needed a respirator after singing everybody's Working for the Weekend. Arrested Development won tonight. This show is sort of like a car wreck. You just can't help but stop and stare. The next episode has Wang Chung, the Knack, Howard Jones and Vanilla Ice. Did you hear me. Vanilla-Freaking-Ice will be performing. I'm alone in my hotel room, stuffed from a very large dinner, eagerly awaiting Vanilla Ice's performance. Man, I'm pathetic.

Hi Rat!
All I remember from Tiffany is "I Think We're Alone Now" and "Could Have Been". Yes Arrested Development sang Mr Wendall.

P.S. Check your e-mail.

Vanilla Ice was even in the UK last year, in a reality show called 'The Farm' where he mucked stables and cleaned pig stys along with other D-Listers looking for a second chance at fame.

And I've seen recent pictures of Tiffany - she's definitely aged very well.

I went to the Indian/Pakistani store at the corner and asked the guy in Hindi for some pudina chutney. He looks at me and says: 'mint sauce'? Ummm. ok. sure. So I bought it but it was crap. So the plan is to make lots this weekend. What's your recipe mint chutney!? My flatmate promises to help but he doens't want me to put green chillies in. What a wimp. :) Anyway, just chanced upon your blog and its well cool. Looked at your best books, and I wondered what the Godfather would sound with a Holden Caulfield kind of narrative. :) You're my goddam brother Freddie, but never take sides against the family again. That just killed me Freddie.
