100% AND HAPPY JEWISH NEW YEAR!

Bruce Kimmel Photograph bk's notes

Well, dear readers, first of all can we just wish a very Happy New Year to all our Jewish dear readers – I, myself am a Jewish dear writer of these here notes – we hope it will be a splendidly splendid year of sweetness and honey with no bitter herbs to get in the way of the sweetness and  honey.  Which brings me to the sweetness and the honey that occurred last evening when our Indiegogo campaign hit 100%.  Yes, you heard it here, dear readers, our Indiegogo campaign hit 100% and I danced a jig in my pointy party hat and colored tights and pantaloons.  Now we go into our stretch goal as we still have another nine days before the campaign ends and in the stretch goal we will try to cover the Indiegogo and credit card fees, which are not small.  And then anything over that will go to sets, costumes, lighting, and any additional sound costs.  Now, we sure could use the sweetness and honey of a miracle to get us through this week and to make this a truly happy Jewish New Year.

Yesterday, I finally got a little over eight hours of blessed sleep.  Once up, I did the usual things I usually do in the usual ways.  I did some work on the computer, then went and got Subway for my meal o’ the day. One foot- long comprised of 500 calories, and one six-inch comprised of 480 calories, so well within my calorie limit. I ate the six-inch straight away and saved the foot-long for later.  I watched the Rosemary’s Baby special features – even though I’d seen them before I enjoyed them.

Then I watched a motion picture on DVD entitled The H-Man, one of those Toho sci-fi movies.  This one was very much like The Blob in certain ways and was fun.  In scope and color with a nice transfer and of course I watched it in its original Japanese language version, which is ten minutes longer than the dubbed American version.

I did some more work on the computer, chose one song, listened to some music and ate half the foot-long sandwich, and after another hour or so, the other half. Much later I went to Ralph’s and got a little salad from their salad bar, just to have the greenery – my usual red wine vinegar as dressing, so almost zero calories.

I then watched a little of another Japanese sci-fi movie entitled Battle in Outer Space, made after The Mysterians – it’s fun.  Then I saw we’d gone up to 99% thanks to someone coming in for a big-boy perk – above-the-title producer credit and right after that, someone took us over 100% and I danced the jig right here in the home environment, to the music of Mr. Aram Khachaturian whose name is rather like sneezing.

I had a couple of telephonic conversations, proofed the packaging for our three releases and those will shortly be off to the printers for printing, and then relaxed and continued listening to music.

Today, I can only pray for the much-needed miracle, the sweetness and honey we desperately need.  I mostly have to attend to the Kritzerland show and choosing songs, eat, hopefully pick up some packages, and get us into our stretch goal mode with a few new perks.

The rest of the week is meetings and meals, auditions, and meetings and meals, as well as meals and meetings.  Khachaturian. Bless you.  Thank you.

Have I mentioned 100%!  Have I mentioned sweetness and honey with no damn bitter herbs?  Have I mentioned dancing a jig in my pointy party hat and colored tights and pantaloons?

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, pray for the much-needed miracle and the sweetness and honey we so desperately need, I must cast, choose songs, eat, hopefully pick up mail and an important envelope, and get us into our stretch goal mode.  Today’s topic of discussion: What are your favorite condiments, and which make you want to vomit on the ground?  Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, over the moon about passing the 100% mark.
