“A couple retreats to the island that inspired Ingmar Bergman to write screenplays.”

Whoo-hoo! Party time!

The actual spot, Bergman Island, is regarded as the world’s most depressing vacation destination. It’s the direct opposite of Fantasy Island. Instead of fantasy, there is only grim, somber reality. As you visit, you join everyone else there in staring off blankly into the middle distance while you consider the futility and essential pointlessness of a completely accidental existence that must be endured until a lonely death.

And the buffet is great!

Except maybe a little too heavy on the herring.

Now that I think about it, it’s only the second-worst vacation destination, right after this one.

Anyway, here’s Mia:

There’s nothing new to see here, but I linked to it so you can see that the Christmas tree is gone, although this one is supposed to be from Monday – so we might presume it was filmed after the ones of her in the purple lingerie.

This leads me to wonder when all of these dance videos were actually filmed. Could Soused Stepdad be right with his theory that Britney is either dead or in seclusion, and that all of these videos are either from a vault of old footage or (less likely) a body double? Could the purple lingerie one really be new? October 8th or 9th is a little early for a Christmas tree, even for crazy people.

(Having made that statement, I have to hedge my bet by noting that I stopped in Lowe’s for some duct tape today, and the first thing I saw as I entered was a Santa-bedecked display of Christmas trees. In contrast, my cable provider has two Hallmark channels, and they have not yet started running Christmas movies. You know you’re jumping the gun when you’re celebrating Christmas before Hallmark.)
