I’m as giddy as a schoolgirl over tonight’s Late Late Show. Fran “The Nanny” Drescher! Robert David Hall from CSI! And, then there was country singer Jo Dee Messina.
Oh my lovely, what fun we had. We laughed, we cried, we wet our pants. Okay, maybe we didn’t really cry…
Monologue: The guys from the office are planning a trip to Vegas and you’re only going for the hookup. I have a better idea – come to Vegas with me in a couple of weeks and we’ll have more fun than you could even imagine. No, don’t be silly. I’ll keep my hands to myself. Mostly to myself. (Damn, I dropped my Skittles over the mere thought of having to behave.)
Anyhow, you’d have more fun with me and my group than you would with office boys. My group will consist of some of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet, and there will be three days of awesome music! Bet your boys can’t say that, can they? No, I didn’t think so.
So, back to the show. The audience asks questions, you start firing people, I don’t like your new intern. Blah blah blah. The intern part, not the rest. Call it jealousy or what have you. I just don’t like tall, thin blondes. It’s a character flaw – on their part.
Fran Drescher is your first guest. Now, if you only knew how many hours I’ve logged watching The Nanny in the last nine months, you’d have a much better understanding of why I like her. She’s made me smile and laugh almost as much as you have during the same period. (Trust me when I say that back injuries are really not the most enjoyable reason to be stuck at home for any length of time.)
I tried watching her new show, Living With Fran, but it just doesn’t have that same vibe. However, I get the whole “younger man” thing. Sometimes you just connect with a person and age isn’t an issue. Unless you’re Mary Kay Letourneau.
Seriously though, Fran met a younger man who helped her through a very rough time in her life. She felt young and sexy and alive again. That’s never a bad thing for a woman.
Drescher is still beautiful and funny. And her birthday is tomorrow (today – Sept. 30, actually). She doesn’t look 48, does she? I hope this year is good to her. She deserves much love and happiness.
Next up was one of the most interesting actors on the original version of CSI, Robert David Hall. Hall plays Dr. Albert Rollins, the Chief Medical Examiner who gives the CSI team the official cause of death on their victims. His character is quirky and funny. Sadly, he doesn’t get as much airtime as the other characters on the show.
Craig, you sweet Ferglet, you got him to tell you about the accident that took both his legs. In a touching narrative, Hall explained how the accident actually gave him many more opportunities than he had first thought would be available to him. He’s gone from voice-over work to co-starring on one of the top rated shows on TV. And, I thought he was interesting before I knew all this.
Your final guest of the night was Jo Dee Messina, who sang the cut “Delicious Surprise”, from her new album of the same name. I was rather surprised to discover it was co-written by Beth Hart. It was a fun song, but I didn’t like it as much as I have always liked “I’m Alright”.
My dear, thank you for a very nice show. It was over too soon for my liking, as it always is.
I shall see you again tomorrow.
Your cheeky wee monkey and naughty little minx,

Her fascination and adoration of Craig Ferguson is little more than silly fantasy, with a dash of lust, the likes of which are common amongst single 39 year-old women. She lives many miles safely south of Los Angeles and CBS Studios. Her favorite Skittles are the Original Fruit Skittles, especially the lemon, lime, and orange. Joan also likes Sour Skittles. There’s nothing else of interest here, move along now.Powered by Sidelines
