We're So Happy You're So Happy @ Wisteria Lane

Over the weekend, Victoria and South Australia was hit hard with the worst ever bushfire. More than 100 people were dead due to the bushfire as well as more than 1000 houses were burnt down.

Sydney was not that hot (in comparison) over the weekend, and we did not get any power cuts. I think I shall consider myself lucky.

Desperate Housewives

Back to the topic of the most exciting moment of the day - Desperate Housewives at 8.30 pm tonight. That is, if Channel 7 did not push back the Housewives due to the report of bushfire.

HD TVLast week on Wisteria Lane, the time moves five years forward. Mike leaves Susan, and Susan tries to hide her relationship with a new man. Bree is on the verge of publishing her own cookbook as business partner, Katherine, grows envious (see croquembouche entry); Lynette catches her teenage twins spearheading illegal activities. Edie returns with a new husband - Dave, with some sort of secret past.

Tonight on Desperate Housewives, (Season 5 episode 2, You're Gonna Love Tomorrow)

Lynette discovers another side to her son, Porter. Meanwhile, Gaby attempts to mask her demise in social stature. Then, the time has come for the men in Susan's life to meet, and Mrs McCluskey enlists Katherine's help to uncover more about their new neighbour.

Don't miss out tonight's Desperate Housewives at 8.30 on Channel Seven followed by all new Brothers & Sisters. And, do NOT interrupt Antony during Desperate Housewives.

Last week's Mary Alice Young quote:
It goes by so quickly. In a flash, the life we knew is gone forever, and we're left to ask ourselves...
How could he have left me? When did my beauty start to fade? Why has my friend changed? Was I the best mother I could have been?
Of course, there are some people who understand how quickly time passes. That's why they're so determined to get what they want before it's too late.

Desperate Housewives

Last time on Desperate Housewives, (Season 5 episode 1, You're Gonna Love Tomorrow):

Five years ago, Susan and Mike were in a terrible collision with another car. Now, she's sleeping with her painter, Jackson, but refuses to let him spend the night or to let him meet her friends, saying she's "not ready."

Bree and Katherine's catering business has become a fulltime affair, but the spotlight is on Bree, who's written a new cookbook. Katherine is touched that Bree has dedicated the book to her, until she discovers that she's not credited for many of the recipes that they came up with together. During a shoot for a cooking show, she fakes an injury so that Bree is forced to apply a spun-sugar veil that only Katherine has ever successfully done. Bree makes a horrible botch of it and Katherine then shows the camera crew that she's really the expert.

That night, as Bree practices the procedure for a reshoot, she comes across a toy that used to belong to Danielle's baby, the one she'd agreed to let Bree raise. But Danielle, who's now married, changed her mind and took the baby back, telling Bree she'd have to find "something else" to take the baby's place.

Gabby, who now has two girls with Carlos, can't ignore the fact that her four-year-old, Juanita, has a weight problem when she can't find a "princess dress" that will fit her for a party. She's alarmed to see Juanita eating several helpings of cake at the party, so she decides to make her daughter exercise by forcing her to run after the car on the way home. Finally, Juanita gives up and takes the bus. Carlos scolds her and Gabby sadly admits she's glad Carlos is blind because she no longer feels pretty. He insists she'll always be beautiful to him.

Porter and Preston, the Scavo twins, are still holy terrors at age 16. Lynette discovers them running an underage casino at the pizzeria and grounds them for a month, which means they'll miss homecoming. She asks Tom to speak to the boys but realizes it's doing no good because Tom, who was a band geek in high school, loves that his boys are so popular. Tom ungrounds the twins and Lynette counters by suggesting that they take Tom's prized restored convertible to homecoming. Tom finally gets the message and comes down hard on the boys when they arrive half an hour past curfew.

The women of Wisteria Lane are astonished to see that Edie's back -- and that she's married! Her new husband, Dave, seems to have done wonders for Edie, who is now civil to the women who once threw her out of the neighborhood. Lynette proposes they throw a party at the pizzeria for her return. Edie sees the party as their way of saying "sorry," for running her out of town, but flips when they tell her this is a "we forgive you," party and warn her not to return to her old ways. She complains to Dave, who says he wants her to be friends with these women because it'll be "easier." Edie complies, although she still doesn't understand why Dave was so determined for them to return to Wisteria Lane.

Jackson shows up to Edie's party and is about to tell Susan's friends about the two of them when Susan cuts the power. She explains she she can't be in a relationship, because of the accident five years ago. It wasn't Mike who was killed, but the occupants of the other car. Mike refused to feel guilty, even though he should have taken the car to a mechanic instead of fixing the brakes himself, but Susan can't let it go. She and Mike split up and are now sharing custody of their son, M.J. Jackson agrees to give Susan more time.

Later that night, Dave calls his doctor, whose care he's been under for a rage problem so severe it got him in legal trouble. Dave promises that he's no longer a threat to anyone, except for one person, he says as the camera roves over Wisteria Lane.

Pagewood or Eastgardens whichever you like, had a power outtage for 3 hours on Sunday night. Very unusual according to friend Denny.

I noticed one or two unstable power, but no power outage here.
It was an exciting episode.
