Guess who is gonna be dessert?

Isn't it the height of nonchalance
Furnishing a bed in restaurants?

Well, a little dinner never hurt.
But guess who is gonna be dessert?

I haven't seen the musical comedy Funny Girl in years. But I can still sing along with the lyrics as if it were yesterday. The naive Fanny Brice and the oh-so-suave Nicky Arnstein singing "You are Woman, I am Man." Not exactly A Man and a Woman, but the passion potential is still so very French.

I thought of Funny Girl as I passed by the famed restaurant Lapérouse today, knowing of its reputation for offering romantic private dining rooms complete with chaise longue and discreet wait staff.

I wonder if Laperouse could have been the inspiration for the restaurant in that fabulous seduction scene with Barbra Streisand and Omar Sharif.

--A bit of paté?

-- I drink it all day...

We've been at it since last summer and have been featured in MORE Magazine's Jan/Feb issue as 'Women of the Blogoshpere.' We're having more fun than should be allowed and are now working on a pilot sitcom based on our nutty videos!

Here's a tease video (from our Netflix video reviews) for your enjoyment:

The rest may be accessed on the right side of our blog pages (in blue print). Pass the word, as that's how this crazy thing works, right?

Mimi -- I'm still singing this song. There are better ones to have stuck in one's head, but it keeps me laughing.

KK and SalGal -- it looks as though you two are having lots of fun!
