The meet-n-greet scene in The Sheik sets the pace for all of the over-the-top events to come. Much flicking of eyelids and brows between Rudolph Valentino and Agnes Ayres.

In other news, this is kind of how I look at the dessert menu in a restaurant.

“Ah, my little blueberry cheesecake, you shall be mine forever.”

“Mmm, my petite flourless chocolate cake, I shall win you in the end!”

“Oh, you white chocolate macadamia cookies, playing so coy!”

  1. I was suddenly reminded of a line from an old Garfield cartoon, where he was rhapsodizing over a newly-baked pan of lasagna: “Ah, ma cherie – you know I cannot resist you when you wear garlic in your meat sauce …” 🙂

  2. “…this is kind of how I look at the dessert menu in a restaurant.” Me too!

    Speaking of which, did you know today is International Chocolate Day? I found this out rather late in the day, and was not pleased to discover I didn’t receive a memo about this important event.
