Calamity Jane

So Mother called me to say my favourite film was on.
Calamity Jane with the wonderful Doris Day! I was so excited and as I now watch it, i am reminiscing of things I used to sing along or do when watching this as a kid.

Starting with the song that Bill Hikock and Calamity sing when he taunts her about getting Adelaide Adamms to Deadwood...

On the above clip I would ask what she was saying...asking my Mother "what's that bit she says...I've got the 'durisdict' something to be wherever you aint?"

It transpires it is as follows:

"I've got the darnest itch in me, to be wherever you aint!"

Mother might remember all of a sudden alot of salt being used up and somehow ending up on the kitchen floor! Check out 1.17 on the above clip!

I used to clean my room singing this silly I am to share that!

Well, I am going to get on with watching Calamity Jane and hope you all get to see it!

Marcia Cross' Smooth Skin

I am a huge fan of Marcia Cross (Bree - Desperate Housewives) but even I could not read the following article in the Mail and keep a straight face. No pun intended!

Taken from

"With glowing, line-free skin, Marcia Cross could pass for a woman 20 years her junior.

The 47-year-old is a walking advert for whichever skin cream she uses - if that is the secret behind her youthful skin tone.

It is even more surprising that she looks so fresh-faced with two-year-old twin daughters Eden and Savannah to run around after."

Seriously, Marcia uses botox and admitted she could not use it when pregnant! There is no cream secret for smooth 47 year old skin, but affordable injections for high earning celebrities! It is this kind of irresponsible writing from a journalist that encourages people to strive for perfection with an unrealistic target!

On a lighter note, I saw the season premier of Desperate Housewives - Season 6 and will post my thoughts soon!
