Ok. Thanks.

Anybody Here Drink Smoothies?

Some friends of mine recently got a blender and love it. I'm considering buying one of these blenders from Amazon. Any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!

Re: SNL - 011318

Different strokes... I thought it was one of the best eps of the season (I'm a big fan of Rockwell) and that Kate's Mika was spot on, the way she makes all those facial expressions and gestures while Joe babbles on. It was nigh perfect.

Re: The Crown - S2

Currently up to ep 4. Another great season. I especially like this ep because I really like the actress playing Margaret. The whole long scene with she and the photographer at his studio was tv at its finest.
