Let's do a recap, shall we?



Do I really need to say that Evan and Randi danced a fabulous jive? And how fun is the jive, anyway? They were spectacular. I think I voted enough times singlehandedly to get them through this week, but I will admit to Thursdays making me a little nervous.

Also, as part of my research for the next book I saw my very first Fred Astaire movie last night. This seems a little crazy, for as much as I love old movies, to have never seen Fred Astaire. My philosophy was always that in a world where Cary Grant movies exist, why would I watch something else?

I can say now I think the best thing about Fred Astaire was Ginger Rogers. And Ginger's wardrobe. I really, really don't get him. BUT, I saw Gene Kelly and Judy Garland this afternoon (the Mystery Man was less than thrilled - he kept grabbing the Tivo and trying to get Cat Deely on the screen - he prefers blondes) and I can say that I adore Gene Kelly. So, we're gonna make the research less painful and pull up Singin' in the Rain next. Mystery Man will just have to learn to love Debbie Reynolds.

Although I don't dislike Astaire, I prefer him with Ginger ;)
I also prefer Gene Kelly, especially EARLY Kelly, ie: COVER GIRL, ME AND MY GAL, etc.
Great blog.
