Cheerio Zoners! Another smashing week on the Report! It was great to catch a glimpse into British culture. I usually only get that from my favorite Brit Coms. I nearly broke a rib laughing during the tea segment! And how about James Franco? He really is living my dream. If I had the chance, I’d go back to school in a heartbeat! What were your favorite segments?

Konnichi wa /Konbanwa Zoners! What a great week back after vacation. Stephen and the gang were in top form yet again. I don’t think I have ever been as hungry after watching a show as I was after this weeks episodes – candy bars, pistachio ice cream, shawarmas – I was practically chomping at the bit to run for a midnight treat, but I refrained…this time. I was moved by the attention to the needs of the Japanese with his donation reminders. With everything going on right now, it’s easy for us to lose focus. Oh and Jimmy Fallon – what can I say? He found a devoted fan in me with his generous gift. What were some of your favorite bits this week?

Sholem-aleykhem Zoners! I hope your Daylight Savings Time was…ok, maybe not enjoyable, but I sure hope you remembered it! Hey, it’s the only bit of time travel I’ve ever done, so at least I have that going for me. It was a great week of shows, and it sure challenged my fact finding noggin, which I always enjoy. I do have to add that I wouldn’t mind showing Stephen my advanced degree for a few beads! Which segments did you enjoy?

Pop Culture References in The Colbert Report: Feb 28 – Mar 3, 2011

Bon swa Zoners! I hope your week is going well. I am sitting here with a slight bellyache from recently partaking in too much Americone Dream (again) – if you believe there is such a thing as too much carmel-y and waffle cone-y goodness! Stephen and the gang were on fire for yet again with two great Words, plus the Jimmy Fallon sketch reinforced the notion that sometimes a little goofiness with friends is just what we all need. What was your favorite segment from this week?

Howdy Zoners! What a whirlwind week this was! It was a really fun ride for me – almost as fun as the rides at Great Adventure (which I have been to as well, Stephen)! I have to admit a soft spot for Stephanie Coontz, because as a Women and Gender Studies minor in school, I had the opportunity to read some of her work, and really enjoyed it. So, I was especially giddy when she was on. What was your favorite segment this week?

Howdy Zoners! I hope you had a good break and a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Looks like Stephen did. He was glowing on Monday (even without the help of the lights)! My favorite segment by far this week were the ones surrounding the Colbuffington Re-post. I love it when Stephen does voices – and his impression of Arianna is especially delightful. What were your favorites this week?
