Mary Katharine faked playing Ms. Pac-Man. And Vic has loads of transitions. Plus Saved by the Bell rankings!

    Fact check:  Showgirls came out in 1995.  The Wynn hotel didn’t exist until 2005.

    So, yes, the show at the Stardust in 1995 was definitely better than the Wynn, since the Wynn hadn’t been built yet.

    Yesterday an ice cream truck came through the neighborhood for the first time this summer.

    Mary Katherine Hamm provided a data point about women that doesn’t surprise me, but I didn’t know. That women talk about their nails all the time. Presumably they don’t talk about them around men.

    I’m one who doesn’t admire modern women’s nailery (I just made that word up). I like simple when it comes to women’s nails, and painted or not, prefer to see the real thing. I notice right away when someone “enhances” their nails, and mentally it always evinces a minor “Ewww.”

    When Mary Katherine said that she does her own nails, I looked upon that positively, though she doesn’t seem to.  Assuming that she keeps it simple.

    Sometimes I see women with natural nails that are curving out a few inches and I think “EEEEWWWWWWWW!!!!”

    So JVL was too busy praising DeBlaaio to be on the show? Great replacement.

    The tip on buying a bag of Trisodium Phosphate and putting a pinch in the dishwasher came from Rob Long on the Ricochet podcast, not from JVL.

    Weren’t phosphates banned from detergents because they’re bad?

    That’s why you have to buy them as an additive.

    I’ve heard that strychnine adds a nice zest to food.

    Plutonium, according to the Man from Jersey (a.k.a. Joe Piscopo).

    Much harder to get than polonium, I think.
