    Chapter 21

    Muriel is a pig. Her blind faith in Blake (despite all contrary evidence) is pathetic, and her decision to continue Spencer's employment solely to prevent legal repercussions is disgusting. She has never played fair with Spencer, but at least, we now know the reason for her irrational behavior. 🤬 If Marshall ever decides to give up his career in journalism, he can run a phone sex hotline. (Gotta get myself a pink and black polkadot bowtie!) 😂 So the big question is whether Marshall returns to his seat before the explosion. (I am trusting that his love for Spencer, and the resultant

    Chapter 20

    While I usually don't like coincidences in a story, Blake and Joey's presence (at the same time and at the same bar) works well in this instance. Blake reveals that he's a self-serving ass (old news, Blake) and suggests that he would have deserted Ambika in 3 years for "a good-looking face, an equal. Everything that happens up until that moment is just time passing." (I'm so, so glad that Ambika dumps him before the marriage.) Joey asserts that Marshall has a price on his head, though the absurdity of this statement is indicated by the fact that (a) the mobster interview was years ago, with M

    Chapter 19

    Muriel doesn't even knock before entering the room where she sees Marshall and Spencer together. (How rude!) She really is a prima donna. Further, seeing Spencer fills her eyes with "annoyance," and I have to wonder why her anal sphincter always clenches whenever he's around. (Oh, that's right, she's a b***h!) I love that Marshall has no qualms about telling the crew (and showing Muriel) that Spencer is his boyfriend--another indication of how important Spencer has become to him. Poor Ambika. Compassionate, yes; bright, no. (Is she actually considering trusting Blake and givin

    Yes, Marshall, as you are now dessert, we will trade the marmalade for chocolate sauce! (The whip cream can stay.) 😂

    Chapter 18

    I love that Spencer pours his mulled wine into the sink: Perfection is not required for a loving relationship to develop (and at least Marshall is trying, which is really what counts). That Marshall is willing to accompany Spencer home for Christmas signals that he is ready publicly to take the next step in their relationship. Further, his decision to stay more local in the coming year suggests forethought--an arrangement specifically meant to allow their relationship the time to grow. (I don't think the new schedule is coincidental in any way. Rather, Marshall is certain enough of Spencer to

    Yes, Spencer, drinking three cups of coffee before an interview is the perfect way to prevent anxiety. 😂 Way to go, Spence! Your interview with Ed was absolutely terrific. That said, your exit interview with Muriel will be much more fun. (Please take pictures. [I can't wait to see the look on her face. 😉])

    Darcy, of course you have a driver for your Mercedes. (I'll stick to my palanquin, thank you. 😂) Marshall, crushing chocolate croissants is a crime against humanity. However, crushing Spencer is perfectly appropriate! Joe, we're changing your name from Donkey to Ass. You're so mature that Marshall has to bring you to mummy and daddy to force an intervention. Sheesh! Yes, Marshall, stocking someone's favorite ice cream is a sign of true love. 🥰 Spencer, after a heavenly bout of love-making, Ed Coleman is always the right choice for pillow talk! Brian, thank you for a

    Spencer is aware that the news photo shows Nile and him kissing, but depending on how their heads are turned, no one else may be the wiser. (I really hope that the picture does not come back to haunt him--not when his luck finally seems to be turning. 🥺) Clearly, Ambika's youngest brother had very low standards. Blake, your cover is blown! (Yes, I went there.) 😂😂😂 It's always good news when someone named after a cake gives you a call! I'm betting that Marshall has nothing to do with Ed Coleman's interest--that Spencer has earned this chance through his own hard work. Harrah for Spen

    Love the playlist. Please add Ricky Nelson's Poor Little Fool (though I'm not sure if I'm referring to Spence or Ambika! ). A party where the guests are given predetermined departure times? Really? (Actually, I love the idea of guests having an expiration date, but I will never admit to it! ) Niles is very practical: He uses the kiss meter up front to determine potential lovers from friends (and if the kiss disturbs Blake, then so much the better). At least, Niles is willing to accept criticism and decides to see if his relationship with Tommy is salvageable. (While Spencer's situat

    Chapter 13

    At this time, we have no clue as to how Marshall and "Donkey" are interacting. For all we know, Marshall may have read him the riot act on getting him home, telling him never to bother him again. We can't read anything into Marshall's failure to call Spencer back, as he may be unable to do so (as during the last assignment where he was incommunicado). The jury is still out on the status of Marshall and Spence's relationship, but it's way too soon for Spencer to lose hope. Muriel is a pig. A one percent raise is a slap in the face and is worse than no raise at all. With Blake's confirmati

    Chapter 12

    There's nothing to stop Spencer from nipping Joe's plan in the bud by making Marshall aware of the supervillain smile, but will he do it? As Marshall has already been burned by Joe once, he may be more amenable to hearing Spencer's suspicions. I'm also suspicious of Arnab: How did Joe know to turn up at the restaurant on just the right evening? Also, unless Arnab has been living under a rock, he has to be aware of what Joe did to Marshall, yet he still gives Joe direct access to him. (OK, Arnab, so how much was the bribe?) Even if Arnab were truly ignorant--a man who refu

    My big fear is that Joe is setting Marshall up for a second time, as he failed to destroy him with his first attempt.

    Chapter 12

    I love Marshall's club. That said, I side with Marx (Groucho, that is): "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member." 😂😂😂 Of course Marshall loves his glamorous, if dangerous, job. I love mine too! (Being retired ain't easy, but someone's gotta do it! ) Brian, we're missing just one tiny detail: Did Muriel give Spencer the raise or is she once again just stringing him along? (Cat's cradle, anyone?) Also, Brian, I have to hand it to you: Only you could turn a smile into a cliff hanger!

    Chapter 11

    No argument from me that Muriel needs Spencer. That said, she picks on him mercilessly, heaping put-downs on his head every time they interact: She clearly undervalues him, so she may not realize, or accept, that she needs him--she may cut off her nose to spite her face--and her ego may lead her to fire him if he won't kowtow to her demands. (All he is requesting is simple pay parity, and he shouldn't even have to be asking--let alone offering her an interview with Marshall--to have her play fair, but the Marshall bribe may help. )

    Chapter 11

    Malapropisms--I haven't heard the term in years! (Now I have to reread Sheridan!) "Prostrate" is one of my pet peeves, and "enjoying universal suffering" is hilarious. "Sit down, Spencer. You're making the room look untidy." Really? (Muriel is truly a woman you love to hate!) While Spencer states his case well, Muriel doesn't give an inch, other than to agree to redistribute the menial jobs which weren't Spencer's to begin with. She has promised him nothing but more work and expects him to accept her terms (essentially the status quo) within 24 hours. Ordinarily, if Spencer were to r
