I love NCIS because "Illya Kuryakin" is on it...and every now and then there is some minor (you have to listen or look carefully) reference to The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
I have not, however caught the U.N.C.L.E references though..
I must be more diligent.
hmmm one of mine...
LOVE the show. Have you heard who might spin off?
Secret pleasure? Watching Oscar DeLa Hoya box.
I tuned in the first time for Marc Harmon, Ducky was the big surprise. With the Gibbs "Illya Kuryakin" quote -- I was a lifer! Love Ducky!!!
In that episode, the camera scanned Ducky's mother's bedroom and one of his UNCLE -press photos was framed. My best friend got one from the fan club -- had Dr. Kildare too! She had a big scrap book filled with David McCallum and Richard Chamberlain pictures cut out from magazines -- but those were the centerpieces ....me -- Ben Casey and Napoleon Solo.
BTW -- McGee...is the colonial boy (that turns into Binx the cat) in Disney's Hocus Pocus, my son pointed that one out.
Hearing aid needed?
My secret reading pleasure is like karen Marie posted...getting up very early on Saturday and Sundays even when it is still dark and reading with my Mighty Bright night light!
I also had a HUGE crush on Illya Kuryakin, but I don't watch much TV any more, so I've missed his new persona. And pictures and memories of Richard Chamberlain in his heyday still make my knees buckle.
Is this because I don't watch telly? :-)
#13 -- He still looks great! He and Ducky are my mother's age in their 70s.
Aside from food, glorious food, I think my secret pleasure is a dizzying selection of too much TV. I love everything from Top Gear to Top Chef, from Primeval to Torchwood, from Survivor to the Amazing Race, from NCIS to Lost, from True Blood to Burn Notice. And many more!
An especially guilty pleasure is the over-the-top BBC America sexy melodramas, like Mile High, Footballers' Wives, and Mistresses. So tacky and so fun.
The Sleeping Beauty Novels by A. N. Roquelaure.
Being alone in the house - which actually never never never happens except maybe an hour here or there. Husband works from home and I have an almost-16-year-old daughter.
I love having the house to myself, too. Usually Dan goes to Canada for a week.. but he has to skip it this year... it makes me sad :P
Angela, I have never had an interest in gambling.. I did go to a casino once with all of my kids. A week in a casino.. do you find time to read??
Kath, it's funny you ask her that about reading. A girlfriend and I take a motorcoach tour to Tunica at least once a year. We have a budget of about $50 each for the whole trip (not big gamblers). But we go because there's nowhere else that you can give someone $125 and they will drive you for 5 hours, put you up in a nice hotel and feed you for 3 days, then take you back home. We take a bag of books, we go to one casino and spend our $10, then find a bench and read till it's time to go to the next casino and do it all over. We say we're going on our annual reading vacation!
With plenty of time to read in one's plush hotel room!
My first crocus bloomed yesterday. I've seen earlier ones in sheltered, sunny spots, but this was the first one to bloom in my own shaded little valley.
