Well, dear readers, this week has flown by, like a gazelle listening to the vocal stylings of French singer Edith Piaf whilst eating London Broil and Swedish Fish.  And it’s already the middle of the month.  How did that happen?  I, myself, am sitting here like so much fish, listening to various and sundried music by any number of composers.  The good news o’ the day was that the Mac Mail program is back to normal, everything is synching fine, and all is well and well is all.

Yesterday, I got eight hours of sleep, answered e-mails, had a telephonic call from the senior tech, who was happy everything was back to normal rather than next to normal.  I did some work on the computer, then had to put gas in the motor car (seventy bucks to fill up the tank), after which I went to Gelson’s.  I bought a cube steak but decided that would be today’s meal, and so got some food from the hot food bar, namely their excellent chicken enchiladas – very calorie friendly at 210 calories per – I’m sure I had what would add up to three of them.  I got a tiny bit of seafood salad to have later in the day.  Then I went to the mail place and picked up two packages, then came right home.

The first thing I did was eat the enchiladas with a bit of sour cream.  They were really quite yummilicious.  Then I listened to about six auditions for the GEE and Murder at the Magic Castle books. There will be a few more coming today. I hope to make a decision by next week on each book.  Then I buckled down, Winsocki and finalized the Kritzerland show order, did a preliminary show order for the Group Rep fundraiser, and then I got all the music together for both shows and sent them to the musical director, Richard Allen. So, all that is out of the way now, thankfully.  That took up most of the afternoon.

Then I listened to music, sat on my couch like so much fish but didn’t watch anything because the Flix of Net has lost the connection, which means I have to unplug the router if I want to get it back.  It’s completely a Netflix screw-up and at this point I don’t think I need it anymore.  So, after this month I’ll cancel.  I listened to more music, took a hot shower, and then began writing the commentary for the Kritzerland show, because I have to get that out of the way, so I can write the commentary for the Group Rep show – that commentary will probably be a bit shorter than the usual Kritzerland commentary, and fortunately most of it I can cut and paste from past Kritzerland shows, because most of the numbers are things we’ve done before.  I ate the seafood salad bits and that was pretty good, too.

Today, I think is pretty much free of things.  I’ll mush on on the commentary, I’ll eat my cube steak and a baked potato for the meal o’ the day, I’ll hopefully pick up some packages, then my plan is to try and finish the commentary, then finish watching Yanks. I think the meal with Charles Busch isn’t happening, which is fine since I have to be up early tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow, she of the Evil Eye comes, so I’ll go do things, then I’m having a lunch, after which I’ll begin the commentary for the Group Rep show. Otherwise, I’ll listen and watch. Sunday, I also have a noon o’clock lunch, then the rest of the day is a ME day.  Monday we have a Group Rep rehearsal, then the rest of the week is meetings and meals, a second Group Rep rehearsal (we split these in half due to the number of people involved), and a work session for the Kritzerland show.  A very busy week indeed AND a Bat Mitzvah to go to.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, write commentary, eat, hopefully pick up packages, hopefully finish the commentary, the listen to music and finish Yanks. Today’s topic of discussion: It’s Friday – what is currently in your CD player and your DVD/Blu and Ray player? I’ll start – CD, the Composers in Person series.  Blu-ray, Yanks.  Your turn. Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, happy that all is well and well is all, Mac Mail-wise.
