Desperately Coveted, part 56 of 1774

Just added to my Amazon wishlist: Jamie Oliver's new cookbook for beginners, Cook With Jamie, which is out in Singapore but not yet on the U.S. Amazon.com. (Mike surmises that they may be taking their sweet time "translating" the metric conversions. I can't believe I'm being punished for thinking in cups, not grams!)
And also, fantastic made-for-TV teen film Dance 'til Dawn, which I went looking for today after having an internal puce vs. chartreuse debate. (Don't ask.) Anyway, if you've seen this movie, you'll know that Christina Applegate wants the prom theme to be "Paris in Puce" to match her dress. Which was a darkish pink color, incidentally, and also a very poufy off-the-shoulder number with a big hair bow to match.
Ah, the 80s. How I love them and all their Jessica McClintock-y goodness.
