I LOVE meetings!

Actually, not a bad one this time, which really is sort of refreshing. Although, as with all sorts of things of this nature, you eventually run into someone whose finely honed gift of businessjabber sprouts a malaprop of some sort. Witness, "we want to make sure we have everything and go the whole ten yards."

Although the actual derivation of "the whole nine yards" continues to be up for debate, bypassing that conundrum in a Nigel Tufnel-esque, "goes to 11" fashion does seem to be worthy of an attaboy.

Anyway, that's done now, and I even got to visit with Pam the Liberal for a few minutes before having to come back, so that was a nice diversion. Now then, LET'S NOT BE BORING!!

How about a Morgan Fairchild/Bo Derek catfight with CAKE!!

What the heck is an English-language Telenovela? Isn't that just a Spanish soap opera? Or is this a spanish language soap opera translated into an English telenovela?

I'm so confused.

I was kinda confused too. The show is supposedly based on a Cuban (!?) telenovela, but why they insist on calling the English version something other than a soap opera, I don't know. Maybe because it sounds more exotic.

Like a cakefight.
