Here comes Mr. Softee! That's a name no grown man wants to hear! But come on kids, He has great treats... For boys and girls and everyone near!! The ice cream isn't all that great, But it's hot out and it will do, So Mr. Softee be a good sport... And serve me up something new! I'll take a vanilla cone, And a scoop of chocolate for my bro, I'd do anything for YOU Mr. Softee... Okay, maybe not that...I'm only 7, And I ain't no ho! You ring your bell and to be honest, You ring mine, too. You come around, and when you make that sound It's all I can do to not have two! Mr. Softee when you get home, I hope you get your own special lick, But as long as you come around my street, You are my one big tasty Man Treat!

Amy, my friend in nitpicking! lol You make a good point. I didnt even think...yeah, why did BB have to leave when the baby was a baby....its not like he couldnt wait till the kid was 5. Who remembers that much before they were 5!? I dont! lol I didnt hate the movie though. Any movie with Brad Pitt shirtless is okay by me. No matter how much nitpicking I can do!

Robert, Elle...I think we all have to go to a movie together. I also propose that the ArcLight creates a Nitpicker section...this way we wont bother the others. lol

LOL Elle, too funny! I think I have met my Nitpicking Match! I have to admit to also doing a certain amount of nitpicking under my breath, too. Sometimes you cant save them up enough until after the movie. lol

I've also tried Mad Men and dont get the appeal...yet. I also like Amazing Race...very well produced. But I think the last two years Im jealous from not being able to travel and its depressing to watch! lol Im also with you on ER but I do think its time they pulled the plug. I think the second time a helicopter crashed into the hospital was a bit much.

As straight as Craig is, I feel the same way. Or should I say felt. Now that he is married...I think I have to move on. lol

I think Robert took the words out of my mouth above...and it's such a refreshing change to not be smarter than the president, too.

Hi Yvonne. It doesn't "have" to be on the networks. lol I'm just dating myself. I remember when all there was was three networks and PBS...that quaint period known as yesteryear. Also, when the TV took four minutes to warm up...so you had to turn on the set five minutes before your show started to make sure you saw the beginning. Yes, Im THAT old! lol I forgot Nip/Tuck before, too. I could sit and watch that all day...and often have!

Dont get me wrong Yvonne...I love TV. I watch a lot of it. But when I find more to watch on A&E or Home and Garden or Bravo than I do the major networks ...I know something is not quite right in Dramaland and definitely sitcomland. :)

David, I personally loved "Eli Stone" although someone in their infininite wisdom at ABC canceled it. There are some gems out there. I find a lot of shows, like "Survivor" capture all the drama that a great show should...and that some writers today cant capture when they go to put pen to paper.

Cougars? Let me guess...not in the jungle either. The streets of Washington D.C.? LOL. Thanks for posting this. And I thought season 1 was a bit...over the top!?

Thanks for posting this Buzz. I probably will join...but if I ever DO want to leave the group, is it as simple as clicking my heels?

Thanks Duncan! That was too funny. Reminds me that in college, we would get drunk and watch with the sound turned down and put in our own dialog...very similar! lol
