If Only I could Save Time Polishing My Floor – Thursday Update

Like the Dessert Misses…..Sand.

Norris, Mary and Emily sit at the Rovers while Mary shows Norris her Excel spreadsheet of their trip preparations.  They then express their concern about how Emily will be able to carry on without Norris.

Mary painfully quotes ‘Everything But the Girl’ followed by presenting Emily with their goodbye present.  A pair of Mop/Slippers that will keep her feet warm while at the same time…polish her floor!!!!   The added kicker was that Mary had bought them awile back but they’ve never been worn.

Okay, I really want Mary and Norris to be together, but I have to say, between the not brand new mop/slippers and her love of Misery Lit (which, HELLO, I found out is a real thing), Mary is just slightly creeping me out.

Through the whole thing, Emily is hilarious and keeps that silent way she has of saying, ‘You two are the biggest fuddy duddies I’ve ever met.’.

Surrey Chicks of the World Unite!

See I knew that Becky, like myself, is a Surrey* chick at heart.  Why?  Cause she keeps an emergency stash of booze in in her handbag.   Just recently I used the inner compartment of my glad bag to slip a wee bottle of Crown Royal into a Mandy Patinkin concert.**

Becky is over at Roy’s Rolls moaning of the unfairness of Steve’s reaction to her telling Amy the truth about Tracey.  She really feels that you shouldn’t be lying to kids about these kinds of things.

Roy tells her the best thing to do is to go talk to Steve about it, and when she says she wants to stay with them, the tells her that if things go sour with Stevo, she’s welcomed to come back.

She thanks Roy for being himself and when he says that he finds it hard to be anything else, she responds, ‘Me and all, that’s our problem.’, which, for me, really explains the connection they have.

She goes to Steve and apologizes for telling Amy and explains that she just didn’t know what to say to her.  Steve accepts the apology, but when Becky asks him to apologize for being so rude to her in front of his family, he walks away.

Later, behind the Rovers she approaches him to kiss and make up saying that they’ll get their act together once they’re married and one big family.  Steve then drops the bomb on her that he’s not sure they should get married and even worse…tells her goodnight at the door to the pub.  

Steve….Steve was never built for relationships.

From the WTH File

Jack has a date with Connie but is looking a bit concerned so Molly talks to him.  She gets it right that he’s feeling guilty about dating after Vera’s gone, but Molly tells him that Vera would want him to be happy.

When Jack goes out looking all dapper, Tyrone accuses Molly of trying to get Jack dating so he’ll move out and she start redecorating the house.

 Okay, where the HELL did that come from?  Since when does Tyrone think Molly is up to some devious plot to get Jack out?

 Anyway, Molly tells him to get bent and goes to bed with Paul O’Grady.

Tony Gordon Doesn’t Play Second Fiddle To Any Old Numpty!

 That’s going to be my new Facebook tagline. 

 Luke and Tony are having a chit chat at the Rovers, where Luke tells Tony that he needs him to run the factory.  Tony agrees but says that all decisions have to be made with him, cause “Tony Gordon doesn’t play second fiddle to any old numpty.”.

 “i’mnotanumpty.’, protests a newly humbled Luke.

Later Maria joins Tony and when he tells her the news, she says it’s all grand and that she was silly to not want to do business with Tom.  Tony says business with Tom is good as long as there’s no incest.

 Aaaaaaaaaaand Moving on to the Julie Storyline

Julie comes into to the Rovers and flirts hard with Jason including an impromptu karaoke session and tales of riding bucking broncos.    They go back to Eileen’s where after a bit of slap and tickle on the couch, Julie goes up the stairs to Herr Grimshaw’s bedroom.    

You know, I’m going to start calling the Grimshaws the “Weatherfield Windsors” if this story line is going where I think it’s going.

In Other News…

Fizz has a little bit of malaise going on and is a bit teary when she comes home from the pub.  I’m not sure what this is all about, but I fear she is missing John.

Sean tries to get people to go out with him into town, but with no luck.  He says to Jason that he feels something good is going to happen.   Glacia worries that this is ironic foreshadowing.

* Surrey British Columbia, not the other Surrey, which I hear is quite posh.

**For afters…the LCBO would have been closed by the time we left the concert.

    I think they mentioned Mary won the mop slippers, even worse! With the Norris/Rita storyline unwinding a little more Monday, I wonder how far Doris and creepy Mary will travel.

    • Bea says:

      I had to laugh when they gave Emily the mop slippers. I remember when Norris and Mary had just met, and they were comparing all the contests they had won. Mary had mentioned the slippers and I thought ‘what a useless thing to win’. I guess Mary just held on to them til she found a use for them. This was such a perfect way of showing just how wierd Mary is.

    I think Tyrone thinks of Jack & Vera as surrogate parents, so the thought of Vera being replaced is upsetting to him. I don’t think he even realizes all this, being Tyrone, for whom self-awareness is foreign.

    Tyrone thinks Molly wants Jack out so she can re-decorate??? I think Molly has been a star throughout Vera’s illness, and hellloooo — Jack lives with them and she cheerfully cooks and cleans for him.

    How hilarious was TOM and the macho act? “There’s a ginnel with your name on it” to Kelly?

    “Okay, I really want Mary and Norris to be together, but I have to say, between the not brand new mop/slippers and her love of Misery Lit (which, HELLO, I found out is a real thing), Mary is just slightly creeping me out.”

    I’m reminded of the quote from Maya Angelou that Oprah likes to use: “When people show you who they are, believe them!”

    The Misery lit reference is a tip-off. Mary strikes me as a cross between the Kathy Bates and Glenn Close characters in “Misery” & “Fatal Attraction”. She’s been so isolated, caring for her mother, that now she’s desperate to enjoy life (hence her choice of Norris, the first “man” she’s found), but that desperation makes her dangerous. When Norris eventually, inevitably, gets cold feet (He may have to borrow Emily’s slippers!) woe betide him! I fear Mary’s pent-up wrath!

  5. Mrs. D says:

    Alright, I have to say it- I could really use a pair of those slippers…

    I have dark hardwood floors and a Jack Russell that sheds so much she should be bald.

    Julie and Jason = icky.

    • Mary Prankster says:

      When my kids were babies at the crawling stage & had those overalls with padding in the shape of animals on the knees, I tried, but never found some with male lions, or possibly orangutans on them, so that the kids could polish the floors, as long as they were crawling on them anyway!

    • Bea says:

      When I was a kid, our mom used to make us wear our dad’s army sox and slip and slide around to polish to floor. Good times.

        Mr. Kunzie and his 5 brothers we resourceful children. They used an entire can of pledge to turn their rec room floor into a skating ring for floor hockey. Grandpa Kunzie was soooo not impressed when he wiped out. 😉

    Julie and Jason are extremely icky!

    I remember Jack telling Molly she should go ahead and decorate to suit herself when they first got the house. Tyrone is just being a bit sulky or nostalgic for Vera.

    Norris and Mary heading into the sunset in that camper would suit me fine.

    Steve is being an a…..e. Becky seems pretty good with Amy and the truth should be a refreshing change in that household.
