ALL MY PREVENTATIVES

Bruce Kimmel Photograph bk's notes

Well, dear readers, this month is flying by, like a gazelle using Lustre-Crème shampoo (Marilyn Monroe says, “Yes, I use Lustre-Crème shampoo” and so do Sandra Dee and Jane Powell, and now, the gazelle). Well, we’re off to a rousing start, aren’t we? What’s next? Perhaps the tale of The Randy Vicar and the Elbow Wrench. That’s a good one. And yes, I’m still fighting the good fight, fighting like crazy, taking all my preventatives, so please keep sending all those most excellent vibes and xylophones for no sickness and a strong voice.

Yesterday was a relaxing day. I got ten hours of sleep, arising at eleven. I answered e-mails, had a couple of telephonic conversations, got the first part of the approval process for our new release, so hopefully part two won’t take two long – we’ll probably announce the title tonight at midnight. I did some work on the computer, listened to some music, and then I went and had a cup of chicken soup and a bagel, picked up one package and came home.

Then I spent the next few hours listening to Cindy Williams’ part of the new audio book – I must say, I laughed out loud several times. There are some lines we’ll have to pick up again – wrong words or wrong intention – and then I want to do her final chapter again – they did it last and they’re both clearly pooped and that chapter especially needs good energy. So, we’ll work out that date for her to fix that stuff. Before that, I’ll flag all the lines that need to be redone – it’s really not that much. And I heard our younger lady’s bits, all very good, but somehow our leading man nuked her final six pages so he’s redoing them with her this morning. It’s kind of fun hearing it aloud. After that, I sat on my couch like so much fish.

Last night, I watched the first two-thirds of The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which I’ve never seen. It’s not very good, but I just kind of sat there, dazed, and watched. Then I took a hot shower, took more preventatives, ate some snacks, and that was that.

Today, I’ll relax, probably have a cup of chicken soup and a bagel, then we have our second Kritzerland rehearsal, with our merry troupe being joined by Kay Cole and Mr. Rupert Holmes himself. The show is completely sold out now.   After the rehearsal, I’ll just relax and take all my preventatives.

Tomorrow is an all resting day, and then Saturday I have to be up early, which I’m not happy about, because she of the Evil Eye is coming – I’m almost tempted to tell her not to come but I don’t think I have her number anywhere (I found it, so I may just call). Whether I get up early or not, I’ll relax until it’s time for the stumble-through, which is later than usual, at five o’clock. Once that’s done, I can rest. Sunday, I’ll rest until it’s time to go to The Federal for sound check, and then we do our show. I will, of course, have a full report.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, relax, eat, and have the second Kritzerland rehearsal, after which I shall relax. Today’s topic of discussion: When you were growing up as a child, what were your favorite grooming products – shampoo, soap, hair creams, and others? Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, as I continue taking all my preventatives.
