Week-End Ramblings . . . 

Sharon Stone has (finally) filmed the sequel to 1992's Basic Instinct.     Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction will open -- next year -- on March 10, 2006.     The film was green-lit several years ago, but production was halted (many times) -- mainly because the actors chosen had ranging issues (with their personal lives, the script, the nudity, the whatever).     But, Sharon did veto several actors who auditioned as well, including the producer's favorite choice Benjamin Bratt.     (I have to agree with Sharon on this one -- he isn't one of my favorites)

I'm SO totally BUMMED that Blind Justice wasn't picked up for a new season!     Maybe Steven Bochco can shop it to some of the alternative networks.     This is similar to the bumming I got when USA didn't pick up the US version of the (UK) Touching Evil for a second season -- I thought it was a thought-provoking show, slightly off-kilter, with all of the pan shots of the time-lapsed skylines and such mixed in.

What happened to the "talk" of another spin-off of CSI -- CSI:LA?     I'm into 2 out of 3 already (I don't do David Caruso -- he is so stiff and overly self-indulgent that I can't take large doses of him).     And, what happened to the half-and-half split of the L&O:CI 22 espisodes to give Vincent D'Onofrio some "down-time" after his collapse on the set twice and hospitalization for exhaustion last season, by bringing in Chris Noth's original L&O "Mike Logan" character to "share-the-load?"     Chris has appeared in only one episode this season.     Did his first outing meet with negative feedback from the audience?

I've been shopping again . . . I am willing to admit, I have a VS-addiction.     Here are three of the sets I just ordered.     I also ordered some v-neck henleys and faux-wrapped t-shirts in black, white and red, that will look great with jeans and shorts.

I was rambling on about this (among other things) a few nights ago in Shop-A-Holics, Big Wishes & Ramblings.     I guess when you realize you have a different definition of friendship than others, a little shopping helps to ease the pain.

My s.o. surprised me last evening with a "treat."     He brought home edamame to snack on, and ebi sushi (with a light shoyu) for an appetizer.     The whole thing was delicious enough to make a meal of since it has been so long since I've had sushi -- especially such good sushi!     The only thing that could have made it any better would have been a couple of pieces of unagi and some shaved shoga (okay, and maybe a kani stick or two with a big bowl of steamed rice with more shoyu).     I've just made myself really hungry talking about all of this.

Also, since I'm ranting, rambling, and otherwise rattling . . . I'm really bummed about my doctor's appointment as well.     I guess I should really say -- the lack thereof of a doctor's appointment.     I was scheduled to see my orthopedic surgeon next Monday (the 23rd) but his office telephoned earlier in the week to say that they needed to reschedule because my surgeon had been called out-of-town, and would be unavailable all next week.     Of course, the following Monday is Memorial Day (he maintains two offices and is only closest to my location on Mondays/Thursdays).     So, my long-awaited appointment was rescheduled to June 2nd.     I knew (logically) that he wouldn't (permanently) remove the cast at my 05/23 appointment but, I had hoped that he would (at least) discuss scheduling physical therapy sessions -- and, perhaps, begin them prior to the final removal of the cast.     Now, I'm losing (potentially) two weeks that I could be in therapy; instead, I'm just stuck in this cast doing nothing!     The worst part of it all is that one of my very good friends is getting married on June 3rd, and I had hoped to be out of the cast -- no wheelchair / no crutches -- by the wedding, so that I could attend this gala occasion and reception of the year.     I haven't had the heart to call him to tell him yet that I won't be attending his wedding.     I refuse to ruin his wedding by potentially being caught in photos in a wheelchair or on crutches, or taking any attention away from the reason for the day by my -- what would be -- lack of a quiet, under-the-radar arrival.     So, I have to miss something that is very important to me because of this never-ending handicap saga.

Enough of this . . . I think I'll "roll" into the kitchen and try to find something for lunch . . .
