Oh, I'm glad you're a fan, too, Barbara!

And hats off for an amazing Seniorgee performance! What fun that must be...and well DONE! Yes, I recognize your lovely hair, too. I'm trying to grow out my graying (mostly at the temples) locks so that I can get a bob after years of short hair. And I love yours!

SWIFTURTLE, yes! I remember Esther Rolle - you bet! Wasn't she great?

After watching Wanda's special, I remembered an actress from am old sitcom, and I knew where the name "Esther" came from. Does anyone else remember Esther Rolle from TV (80's, 70's?). I thought Wanda named her roll Esther because of Esther Rolle.

Thanks, DANAE.

Wanda is such a smart comedienne. Her material is very current, which I like. Like Mill Maher, too. Podcasts are a great invention.

Since we were discussing the internet, I went to youtube to find me dancing with my Seniorgee dance team at the Bucks/Cavaliers game yesterday. You'll recognize my hair.

I love your description of Esther, Barbara!

I subscribe to Bill Maher's podcast, and much to my delight, Wanda was on the show. My only complaint is that it was far too short! She is a TREASURE!

I love Wanda Sykes! If you haven't been watching her talk show, do! It's really good, and it never lets me down.

On the back page of my Entertainment Weekly (guilty pleasure!) there is a bull's eye with hit or miss items. There, dead center, was Wanda Sykes!

Haven't seen it, but had to share.

Belly laughs! Esther had a workout. It was well worth it.

Thanks!

We're gonna watch it, if we have to subscribe to HBO for one month. It's less than a night out. I'm checking today.

Wanda was hysterical. I loved her Esther thing, too.

Esther IS like our rebellious inner voice (Wild Child) that we have to make friends with, if we are to lose weight. Our Esther can't be FORCED. She'll tell us where to put it.

Esther will tolerate just so much abuse (strict dieting, willpower, negative self-talk), etc). Gotta find out what she likes besides food and alcohol. There has to be something good in it for her, or she won't play. She'll just take her cookie and go home.

Very funny, Cassies! I don't have HBO either, but maybe online? Hulu.com? I'll look for it.

Her HBO special, which premiered last night, had me laughing good and hard.

She talked about her problem with belly fat. She names it Esther and gives Esther a voice. Esther wants bread, booze and cheesecake! And she is demanding....the voice Sykes uses is so funny. I was laughing so hard.



I am going to try to remember this when I am feeling those cravings. I will try to name my ravenous voice and try to wrestle it down....I will imagine myself jello wrestling it...and I will try to take it down like a house of cards!

I will post clips when I find them...or if you have HBO try to catch it. It will be on demand starting tomorrow.
