Listed below are links to weblogs that reference She Got Pinched in the Assss. . . tor Bar! [by Stacey Harwood]:


Have you heard about dear Blanche? Got run down by an avalanche...

She still finished fourth.

One of my all-time favorite lines (for trying to imitate): "I'll have a bit o' the bubbly myself..."

Two eras, drinking champagne with each other ...

Thanks for this, Stacey. I always tell me daughters, harrummph, THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, now that's the REAL story ... but we always end up watching HIGH SOCIETY.

(Of course, it helps if you saw TO CATCH A THIEF when you were eight, and never got over it.)

I think "The Philadelphia Story" is a better movie, but you can't top this scene. Perfect timing, perfect voices, perfect song. The wonderful contrast between Crosby's suaveness and Sinatra's streetwise edge - I wish they'd sung together more.

LO, Sinatra appeared on Bing's TV show a couple of times. The result is two great medley duets, including one in which the boys cover "Among My Souvenirs," "September Song," and "As Time Goes By."

Thanks, DL - I'll try to track it down on YouTube.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
