Hello! What a great ending to my day — late night with you. Now, I didn't get my feet up in those stirrups like you suggested, but I did settle in with a little Scottish shortbread. Get your mind out of the gutter. I meant Scottish shortbread cookies.
Great monologue this evening. You were all over the place, but still managed to pull it all together. This is what makes you my preferred late night talk show host. Okay, there may be more to it than that, but the monologues right up there. Paris, diaries, and oh so many other things. Forgive me for the lack of details. All I know is that I was laughing out loud and enjoying the show.
Sketch: Clay Aiken on the Grammys. Even though it wasn't him, I was still getting creeped out. What is it about that guy that makes my skin crawl? Is it because he's like a youngish blond Tom Cruise/Barry Manilow wannabe? And that hair! Eesh!
Sketch: Sean Connery's This Day in History, which always cracks me up. The wig, the Connery voice, it's all too silly.
First guest: Jeff Probst, Survivor host. Is it just me or does his hair look darker again? What's up with that? Back to the two of you.
Jeff complimented you on your tribute to your father. As he pointed out, you gave many people a chance to reflect on their own relationships with their parent. I still find myself thinking about their mortality and how I really need to tell them how much they mean to me while I can.
You asked Jeff if Survivor was still interesting to him and if he still looked at it as a sociology experiment. He continues to have fun and be amazed at how relationships develop during the course of the game. As well, he mentioned that he found himself looking inward more often, examining himself and the type of person he was, is, and wants to be.
