  1. I enjoyed last week's show because we got to know the stars a little better as they shared their stories. Even though I wish they picked better-known stars (at least better known to me), sometimes it's nice to learn about someone I don't know as much about. For example, I like Nelly much more than I thought I would! Derek's dance was fantastic. I like him as a judge too. I hope he'll continue. Now it's Monday again. What will Tyra be wearing this time?? 😄
  2. No one else watched it this week? I guess Derek will be dancing next week. He seems pretty good as a judge so far. Honest critiques but said in nice ways. I didn't care for any of the dresses this time. It was 80s night so everything was very costume-y. I thought Tyra's dress was her best outfit yet. I liked the colors of the dress and her makeup. But then she came out in that green thing. What was that? She was like a glittery leprechaun. I didn't get it.
  3. I actually liked this week's show. Now that the first two couples are gone, all the dancers are all fun to watch. It doesn't seem to be a popularity contest yet, although it's hard to tell so early on. Jesse is my least favorite and I thought he was going to go this week. Ok, Tyra's dresses are UGLY. Both of her dresses this week were awful and I hated the racoon eye makeup. And is it just me or does anyone else have trouble hearing and understanding her over the fake crowd noise? Bring back Erin and Tom! Carrie Ann's dress was her best one so far. I wish I could have seen the bottom of it. Skai's dress and Jeannie's dress could easily have been worn on a cruise formal night. I especially loved Skai's dress and would like to wear it myself. 🙂 Her dance was flawless too. Ann wins for one of the best costume's I've ever seen on the show. I had to watch it a couple of times to see how it transformed. It was very "Hunger Games". Props to the costume designers on that one. P.S. Prayers for Cozumel and the rest of the Yucatan. I hope the damage wasn't too great and that everyone is safe. Also prayers for Louisiana.
  4. Before I even comment on the outfits, I just wanted to say that I saw three different stars messing with their cell phones during the show. That is so disrespectful to everyone working on the show and to the audience. Why did they even have their phones with them up on the balcony? I'm guessing they wouldn't have done that if there had been a live audience but there's just no excuse. If the stars can't even pay attention to the show for two hours, then why would anyone else tune in? Ok, off my soapbox now. 🙂 I agree about Tyra. Her outfits were awful. I hated the second one less than the first one but why would anyone put shoulder pads on illusion sleeves? And did she make the first outfit out of bicycle shorts? Yuck! I miss Erin and Tom too. I thought Sharna had the prettiest dress this time. Her butterfly dress was so light and fluttery. I don't think I've seen Carrie Ann in bangs before. Neev is turning out to be a surprise. Last week I thought he had just gotten a dance and song that suited his style, but this week's dance was completely different and he did just as well. I plan to keep watching. Next week is Disney week, which is always fun.
  5. I hope you get to sail and if you decide to spend some time in Baltimore that everything will be reopened by then. But even with COVID, we were able to see a good bit. A very interesting area and great for walking around. There were scooters to rent too, which will get you around faster but I am not coordinated enough for that. 😄
  6. I wish we would have had time to take the water taxi. They have cut the number of routes down because of the virus but there was one running. We just didn't get a chance to fit it in. It would have been nice to see the area from the water.
  7. I agree with all the comments. I liked the new format better than I thought I would, but it was strange not having a live audience and I really missed the band. Hopefully Tyra will grow on me. She was a bit stiff but maybe just nervous and I give her credit for keeping the pace moving. I didn't like either of her outfits. The red dress was way over the top and the pink and red pantsuit clashed. Too much hair and necklace. I liked the color and sparkle of Carrie Ann's dress but didn't think the top fit her very well. My favorite outfit was Jenna's 40s-inspired dress. So class and pretty. I think she and Nev will do well.
  8. We cruised out of Baltimore last year but didn't spend any time there pre- or post-cruise. Now I wish we had! Last weekend we were there again briefly for a wedding and walked around the Inner Harbor. What a neat area, a great place for walking. If we cruise out of Baltimore again, we will definitely plan at least one extra day to explore. Besides the Inner Harbor, it would be nice to see Fells Point, Little Italy, and Fort McHenry. I hope it's OK to post a link to my review of the Inner Harbor. http://susancrow.blogspot.com/2020/09/baltimores-inner-harbor.html
  9. I found this: https://www.goodmorningamerica.com/culture/story/dancing-stars-2020-meet-season-29-celebrity-cast-72732093 As usual, I only know 5 or 6 of the stars. 😄 All the judges will be back.
  10. I read somewhere that both Erin and Tom are gone. 😢 And now I'm hearing that Carole Baskin from Big Cat Rescue will be one of the stars. Big Cat Rescue is a great organization so I really hope this will bring her some good publicity after the Tiger King fiasco. But I'm afraid she's not going to last very long. I haven't heard who any of the other stars will be.
  11. Here is my latest "trip report". It's a short read and I hope you enjoy the cruise references. http://susancrow.blogspot.com/2020/05/our-vacation-at-casita-del-crow.html May we all be cruising again soon!
  12. Here's a link for anyone missing their favorite Bahamian cocktails: http://susancrow.blogspot.com/2020/04/how-to-make-bahamian-sky-juice.html I hope we'll be able to get back soon and have one at the Fish Fry!
