Sunday morning greetings!  Sorry to have left rather abruptly yesterday, but my aunt called, saying she was "distraught."  I drove to the hospital wondering if she'd received some bad news or something.  No, she was just lonely and impatient.  We had to wait for a doctor to see her and order one more blood test.  Then we had to wait for the results of that test and all the paperwork required for a release.  I got home a little after 8pm.

The upside to yesterday was that I got to experience our new hospital under non-crisis (to me, anyway) circumstances.  My aunt's room was on the 4th floor with a spectacular view to the south that included DR Elmore's father's house.

Oh, and I'm up early this morning to accompany DH Richard to church in Cincinnati.  Maybe we can have the date this afternoon that we had to cancel last night.  We were going to go see the National Treasure movie, which has had awful reviews but was billed in our paper as "dumb fun."  Works for me.

Back in time for the Super Bowl.

No sooner did I get home than I jumped into a frenzy of work. I mananged to have a few moments of play, too, but I feel very tired.

Friday night I left work a bit early and met up with our old book club to see Shakespeare's  A TWELFTH NIGHT, at our Shakespeare tavern.

The artistic director and his wife were members of our book club, but people started running out of time to read and then out of time to host a gathering, so it dissolved. But we still get together occasionally.

The tavern, which is huge and serves things like Shepherd's Pie and cornish pasties, was packed to the gills, and the audence was roaring with laughter. It was certainly the best live Shakespeare I've ever seen, even including the Globe in London. (Jeff, the artistic director, and his players, performed in the very first production at Lonon's Globe.)

I can't believe I've never gone there before, but I certainly wil be going again!

Although I had to work on Saturday, my client and I took a break to go to a baby shower for our friends, Bret and Joe. These guys have been togethr a long time and have been trying to adopt a baby for the last few years. Well, it finally happened, very quickly, too! Out of the blue, a baby was put up for adoption in Texas, so they brought him home!

We didn't get to meet him yet, because the doctor advised against having him in crowds of people, especially with children, until his immune system develops more. But we had a slide show with lots of pictures of him and the happy daddies.

The fathers are two of my favorite people, and I think this is going to be one lucky baby! Seeing them with all the other kids at the party, I think they will make great parents.

The host for the shower was the creative director who I've been working for on all this TLC stuff. He had caterers and my client and i got to pick out the food they would serve. It was all delish, and I think we will be seeing more of it at work today...

After work last night, my DH arranged for some friends to come over and we took them out to dinner. They are our closest friends in Msrietta and one of the reasons it was hard to leave. But hearing them talk about all the politics in that town made up glad once again that we left.

We went to dinner at a nearby reaturant tucked back behind a stirp mall. I had noticed it once when I had parked back there, but you owuld never know from the street that it was there. It's called the Georgia Grill, which sounds like a place you'd go to watch a football game. It was actually named after Georgia O'Keefe and had some southwest inspiration and paintings of Georgia and a few other artists.

It was rather expensive but very yummy!

The Georgia Grill is owned by a woman who lives in our neighborhood--she was at the civic association meeting the other night. We could walk to this place, it's so close, but didn't have time last night because I was working right up until the last moment to make it in time for our reservation.

We did about $1000 in business yesterday, which isn't much by BIG retail standards....but it's a lot of candles and incense...let me tell you.

And one lady called and wanted me to come to her house and exorcise a spirit from her son who was having trouble sleeping - when I told her I didn't do that, she got mad.  And a minister called and asked if we had blank ordination certificates - again I had to say no.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ POLITICS. IGNORE THIS POST.

Since I've been watching for about a year and a half, I feel like I should throw in my 2 cents. I'm not saying I'm right, I'm just saying it's how I see it right now.  I'll start by saying that now that my favorites are out of the race, I am in Hillary's camp.  I started as an "anyone but Hillary" person, but I have completely changed my mind.

I have watched all but one or two of the dem debates.  I can tell you that everyone's positions have changed quite a bit since the beginning, but that's not a bad thing. At least it means they are listening and learning. I'd rather that than someone who chooses an unwise policy and refuses to change course no matter what.

I have also done a lot of research on Obama's record.  Like all politicians he distorts it.   What bugs me about that is he's running as Mr. I'm against the war when he has repeatedly voted to fund it, the last time was December 18(or 19), 2007. Also he said a couple years after the 2002 speech that if he was in the Senate at the time he's not sure how he would have voted but now he tries to slam Hillary about it.  In one of the debates he attacked Edwards because he wasn't going to leave troops in Iraq in case the terrorists set up camp.   Edwards said he'd leave some in Kuwait, but not Iraq.   So Mr. I'm against the war, doesn't even plan to bring all the troops home.  

He didn't even show up for the vote on the Iranian Army being declared a terrorist organization, but then campaigned saying he didn't vote for that.  He missed something like 167 roll call votes last year and a number of them were important votes. I  realize he was campaiging, but he's running on that experience, and he wasn't there.  He also voted "Present" 130 times in the Illinois legislature.  I have a very close friend who was a state rep and then a state senator.  He said it's a total cop out to vote present and isn't a common thing at all, like Obama says it is.

And I will confess that looking at these two candidates my inner feminist has surfaced. It's time for a woman president.  I didn't get good vibes from Obama when I met him, it didn't get any better the second time I saw him and well....it's like he has this sense of entitlement to the office and we were just peons or something. I didn't get that from any other candidate.  

I don't think Hillary is perfect, I think there will be problems with the Bill Clinton backlash and I don't think it will be easy.   But watching her reaction after her loss in Iowa has convinced me that she can and will be a really good leader.  

So there you go.  If you don't share that opinion that's fine and I completely understand.  Just figured I'd throw out my thoughts.

And just to be fair and balanced.  I think the only Republican who has a chance to win is McCain, but his position on the war and some of the comments he's made lately make me wonder about that.    

I think the biggest things that turned me off to Obama was the huge number of push polls I got from his campaign. Calls where they trash the other candidates, many times with false information, then refused to tell you who they are calling for. It wasn't hard to figure out, they never said one bad thing about Obama. Then Obama would go on TV and act like he wasn't being negative.  Puhleese.

I have always found THE RITZ on film kind of clunky. I'm glad it preserved Rita Moreno's Tony-winning performance, and I think the cast is wonderful, but it didn't quite have the flow or momentum I was expecting from a Richard Lester-directed farce.

I do agree that Treat Williams is wonderful. In fact, I've always thought he stole the picture from the other cast members.

AAAAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

For some unknown reason, a lot of my "favorite sites" have disappeared from my Favorite Sites list.

They're gone, vanished, booted right off of the computer.

And I can't blame Jose, because his blog is one of the sites that has been booted, and I don't think he's quite nimble enough to boot himself.

So, I must spend much of my day before going to work reconstructing what I remember wanting on my favorites list.

Bleh.

Good morning, all! I set off another bomb this morning in the apartment at 8:30, and I've been in Toyland since 9, finessing what I've written on LADY OF THE SLIPPER so far. At 2:45 I'm meeting my friend Tara to see CLOVERFIELD. Then, I shall return home, air out the apartment and tidy up.

I will be E&T most of tomorrow, although I may come down to the office later in the afternoon and cart the computer back home. I expect UPS to bring my new storage bins and Staples should be delivering another filing cabinet. I want to be there for their deliveries since I've been stressing out my super at bit with my numerous trash bags in the past 19 days and I don't want to bother him any more than necessary.

THE RITZ onstage was one of the funniest plays I've ever seen, and I'm happy the film kept a lot of the original cast; Steve Collins was replaced by Treat Williams, who was fine, and I've forgotten who played the Kaye Ballard role onstage, where I think it worked better as a farce since it was really about the doors and the timing. Rita Moreno's performance was one of the greatest I've ever seen onstage, and I'm delighted it's preserved on film. I like the film a lot.

DR CILLA LIZ - last weekend on TCM - YOUNG AT HEART was shown, followed by the original version of the story FOUR DAUGHTERS.

Both movies have power house casts - and both are enjoyable.  The ending for the 50's version was changed at the insistence of one of the stars.

Cilla, this is not your "Young at Heart"  ;D

Spoiler if you haven't seen these films






I saw YOUNG AT HEART before FOUR SISTERS.  When I saw the original I thought it made more sense, never did understand why Day married Sinatra.  I also preferred the original ending.  Was Sinatra the star who insisted?

I found your political post interesting.  I respect you arenít pushing your views on anyone, simply sharing them.  And I appreciate you have listened to all of the candidates, in all parties, carefully before forming your conclusions.

Iím personally frustrated to once again find there isnít a candidate Iím excited about.  Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton AGAIN-scares the heck out of me.  I really donít know what I shall do.  
Title: Re:VEGETABLES
Post by: Miss Karen on February 03, 2008, 10:58:06 AM
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ POLITICS. IGNORE THIS POST.

Since I've been watching for about a year and a half, I feel like I should throw in my 2 cents. I'm not saying I'm right, I'm just saying it's how I see it right now.  I'll start by saying that now that my favorites are out of the race, I am in Hillary's camp.  I started as an "anyone but Hillary" person, but I have completely changed my mind.

I have watched all but one or two of the dem debates.  I can tell you that everyone's positions have changed quite a bit since the beginning, but that's not a bad thing. At least it means they are listening and learning. I'd rather that than someone who chooses an unwise policy and refuses to change course no matter what.

I have also done a lot of research on Obama's record.  Like all politicians he distorts it.   What bugs me about that is he's running as Mr. I'm against the war when he has repeatedly voted to fund it, the last time was December 18(or 19), 2007. Also he said a couple years after the 2002 speech that if he was in the Senate at the time he's not sure how he would have voted but now he tries to slam Hillary about it.  In one of the debates he attacked Edwards because he wasn't going to leave troops in Iraq in case the terrorists set up camp.   Edwards said he'd leave some in Kuwait, but not Iraq.   So Mr. I'm against the war, doesn't even plan to bring all the troops home.  

He didn't even show up for the vote on the Iranian Army being declared a terrorist organization, but then campaigned saying he didn't vote for that.  He missed something like 167 roll call votes last year and a number of them were important votes. I  realize he was campaiging, but he's running on that experience, and he wasn't there.  He also voted "Present" 130 times in the Illinois legislature.  I have a very close friend who was a state rep and then a state senator.  He said it's a total cop out to vote present and isn't a common thing at all, like Obama says it is.

And I will confess that looking at these two candidates my inner feminist has surfaced. It's time for a woman president.  I didn't get good vibes from Obama when I met him, it didn't get any better the second time I saw him and well....it's like he has this sense of entitlement to the office and we were just peons or something. I didn't get that from any other candidate.  

I don't think Hillary is perfect, I think there will be problems with the Bill Clinton backlash and I don't think it will be easy.   But watching her reaction after her loss in Iowa has convinced me that she can and will be a really good leader.  

So there you go.  If you don't share that opinion that's fine and I completely understand.  Just figured I'd throw out my thoughts.

And just to be fair and balanced.  I think the only Republican who has a chance to win is McCain, but his position on the war and some of the comments he's made lately make me wonder about that.    

I think the biggest things that turned me off to Obama was the huge number of push polls I got from his campaign. Calls where they trash the other candidates, many times with false information, then refused to tell you who they are calling for. It wasn't hard to figure out, they never said one bad thing about Obama. Then Obama would go on TV and act like he wasn't being negative.  Puhleese.


I appreciate the post, DR Cilla. You can't get too much info during an important election year as one tries to decide. I'm an independent so I am excluded from the primaries here in AZ (I just love how democratic our election process is, she says with much sarcasm -- let's see, winner takes all the delegates, and what is this caucus crap? --  :P to the two-party system and to the delegate voting system -- it should be by popular vote).

I made a vow that I would not vote for any Republican -- Bush and Cheney scared me so, along with the Evangelicals, hence it will be a long, long time before I get past the trauma that party has caused me (and our country) . Shame on the Demos, too, but the lesser of two evils I suppose...

I've been on the fence for a long time (and certainly haven't reached the point where I am sure enough to put a sign in the yard or post a bumper sticker) but if I had to vote tomorrow -- and was allowed to vote in the primary -- it would be for Hillary (so your info, DR Cilla, makes me feel a little better about that decision). I'm leaning toward seeing what a woman can do, even if she's a Clinton...

Re the Ritz, I have a used videocassette I watch from time to  time and have always enjoyed it. Agree with BK about the photography, and at the beginning, when one of the daughters says "I want to go back Cleveland", she sounds more like An English lass than a girl from OHIO. ....Since I can't get to NYC for Encore's JUNO, I've spent the last two days listening to the CD in the car(Thank you BK): I had forgotten how much I liked the score, and also how much dance music they managed to fit on the original LP. Oddly enough, I also saw the movie JUNO,;Very funny, and blessedly un-nihilistic compared to some of the other Oscar nominees.

Oh, a good news, bad news result from that credit card dispute I had over the NYC sublet.

My company has once again agreed that I should not have to repay the security deposit back to the broker since neither the owner nor NYCityLiving got it back to me. But they sided with the "others" that I had to pay the broker fee -- and the credit card fee I was charged to put it all on my card back in July.  (Boo!! I still think it was a scam cause the broker really tried to talk me out of putting it on the credit card -- finally saying that I could but I had to pay the credit card fee -- so guess what would have happened if I had just wired that deposit, hmmm? What happens to the next renter who doesn't put it on a credit card?  ...)

Beware of using NYCityLiving as a brokering place ....

I was an independent when I lived in AZ, I would watch both parties and then switch to whichever I wanted to vote for.  I was a Republican a couple times and a Democrat a couple times.  So it's a closed election if you don't switch to one or the other from being an independent. That's really what Iowa is, too. I became a Democrat when I went to a Republican caucus in Iowa and the people at that particular caucus scared me Democrat.

On a funny note, my friend Paul would put a sign in his yard every time he picked a candidate. When the caucus was over, he had signs for Biden, Richardson and Obama and he caucused for Edwards.
I'm trying to encourage everyone to vote no matter who you support.

 I went back to sleep for 3 hours this morning, I feel a little better, but still a little queasy. I had a baked potato around noon.  I really want to go to Michael Clayton, but I haven't done any of my weekend chores yet, so I think I'll go to the grocery store, and get some other things done instead.

Always nervous posting on politics as I usually put my foot in it. Dear Karen be brave, don't be afraid of Evangelicals;Some of my best friends are Evangelicals and there are lots of overlaps with RC, which is where I nest(Altho I do have one co-worker who could learn from some solid biblical form criticism, but it's a free country.) Re the Evangelicals I don't know, they range from the salt of the earth(we want the Formula)to evening shady Arkansas politicos.

Title: Re:VEGETABLES
Post by: Matt H. on February 03, 2008, 01:14:50 PM
There was one episode that was very involving. The 13 year old son of one of the sisters witnessed a drug shooting in an alley, and, of course, the rest of the episode involved keeping him hidden since he was the only witness and they didn't want him killed by the drug lords.

Isn't this a sad, scary commentary on the value of human life and the tragedy of innocent people getting dragged into something completely beyond their control and having no say-so in protecting themselves!

The concert last night was wonderful.  The kids (there were a tolta of 90 in the mens choiri and 160 in the womens met for the first time at 9:30 in the morning and gave a perfomance at 7:30 that evening and it was really wonderful.



The womens sang 4 songs on their own and a 5th with an all women a capella group from Cornell University (HearSay) the men sang 3 and then a 4th with an all male a capella group from NYU (Mass Transist)

Then the two groups joined with the Newark Bioy's Choir and the NYC childrens choir (who each sadn a few songs ontheir  own) to sing 2 more songs and finally the NYC Children's orchestra/band (who had done 3  songs on their own) joined in and the entire ensemble did a world premier number that had been written for the occaision.


The venue was an old huge Catholic church with high vaulted ceilings covered in mahogony... the accoustics were phenomanal


Whata great night out!

There were some beautiful dogs in the dog show.  My favorite, for the breed, was the Saint Bernard.  He didn't even make it the finals.  

In a separate segment from the international competition I thought the black & white Border Collie was exquisite.

The Bernese Mountain dog was very handsome.  I prefer less brown on the face but he had a nice head that could handle the markings & they were beautiful on him.

Sherlock watched most of the show with me.

I finally wrote four pages - will try to do another three a little later.  I've chosen the road I'm going down and will just hope it plays out the way I want it to, plot-wise.  Interestingly, when I first began this book, I had an idea of how I wanted to handle the ending, but I really didn't see how I could do it, and yet that's precisely the path I chose, so it will be interesting to see if it actually works.  It's a time-honored device and one I love, so I'm going to just try and have fun with it and make and let it lead me wherever it may.

SWEENEY was what I expected it to be; I'm not at all impressed with Mr. Doyle's concept, but Judy's Mrs. Lovett issublime.  David Hess (not the Hess from LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT) is a very good Sweeney.

So, I'm back at Toyland, where I will now pack up my computer and tote it home.

Well, I did as I said I was going to do and watched MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN. Still makes me laugh unroariously, just as much as the first time I saw it when I had to cross a picket line here in order to get into the theater.

The Blu-ray disc was gorgeous, by far the best I've ever seen this film look and that includes at the theater. There was also a Doly True HD 5.1 audio track that had some great sounds I had never heard before attached to the movie.

There was an hour "making of" documentary on the movie contained on the disc, and I watched that as well. Very interesting stories of how they wrote it, how they got financing only to have it fall through and then to have George Harrison finance the whole movie himself ($4 million). He's certainly gotten his money back many times over. All the stories of the protests in the US and England were also in the documentary. Really very interesting.

I did discover that what Paramount is calling the third season on the disc is actually seasons three and four - 10 episodes each. Once I got to the second half of the episodes, there was a definite change in tone; the show have become much more melodramatic than the fitst 10. Hopefully, I'll get through most of all of them tomorrow before my prime time shows start at 9 tomorrow night.

Since the Super Bowl was continuing their after show interviews and presentations past the time when HOUSE was supposed to start, I just set the DVR to record the next three things on the evening schedule and I flipped over to THE CLOSER on TNT-HD.

They were rerunning that two hour episode that ended Season Two with Brenda basically doing undercover work for the first hour before getting her job back. I've watched the episode many times on DVD, but this is only the second time I've seen it in HD, so I enjoyed the first part of it again.

I'm just catching up on the posts now.  But i just got home from a Super Bowl party (so i haven't read the Super Bowl posts yet). But wow!

There were a bunch of very disappointed people. And some happy ones.

Let me just say the first 3 quarters were quite boring. But the 4th quarter was so exciting! I cannot believe the ending!

As for the commercials, they weren't too exciting.

But i think my favorites were:

1.the pepsi one with the bob-heads.

2.the basketball player jockey.

There were a few stupid ones that all the guys laughed hysterically at.

There were a few other good ones. But i need to see the titles to remember which ones i liked.

So tomorrow she will get to choose $25 of books (her choice) from her little school book club.  I can't wait to see what she chooses! Should be funny!

I can't really believe that the Giants won.  The Patriots were on such a streak. And they had a few plays that were so close (almost tackled eli, the guy with the long hair almost intercepted)...

Crazy.  And that Giant's catch over his helmet near the end was AMAZING.

Good evening, dear readers!

I just got back from my mom's...I took a side trip on the way home to drop off my copy of SECONDS to our Marietta friends (they forgot it when they left after dinner last night.)

The spaghetti was wonderful, as usual. There were 4 birthdays being celebrated: Greg's, mine, my mom's partner's son, who I consider my step-brother, and my cousin Fred, who shares Ben's groundhog birthday. Fred goes to Punxatawney every year, and he took an early flight home to be with us. Much cake and ice cream was consumed, and that's all we've had to eat today. Now that we're home, we both feel a little hungry but don't feel like going out for something.

While I was at our friends' house, the halftime show came on so I stayed and watched it, and ended up watching the wohle game with them, our architect, and Greg, who finished making cables and met us over there.

No one there was interested in football in the least, and we were all trying to explain how the game was working with what little knowledge we had. If you combined the footbal knowledge comtained in all our brains, it might add up to sort of a semi-normal person's knowledge.

Earlier today, I changed the faucet in my kitchen.  What was originally there was probably the original faucet from when the building was built in 1987. :P What I put in is fancier with a built-in hose and sprayer nozzle. :D

It was a pain to take out the old one and put in the new one all by myself, but I did it.  The only real problem is that right behind my sink is a counter top that on the other side is a bar-like counter in the living room.  It sticks over the kitchen side just enough so that I can't push the handle back enough to be able to turn it on as full as it's supposed to be. :P Click HERE (http://images.lowes.com/product/034449/034449516662.jpg) for a picture of what I got and imagine a counter top behind it that's too close to the handle.  But it works, so it's good enough for me. :)

Superbowl commercials:

Budweiser's "Rocky" -  a heartfelt "Rocky"-inspired story of a Clydesdale horse that doesn't make the first cut for the carriage team, but succeeds after a year of training with an unlikely coach, a Dalmatian dog.

Coca-Cola's "Macy Balloons" -giant balloons in the shape of Stewie from "Family Guy," the vintage cartoon character Underdog and even Charlie Brown duke it out over the same inflatable bottle of Coke, all playing out over the rooftops of Manhattan.

Pixar's - trailer for Wall-E

And thought not a football fan, I really enjoyed the game (even if the middle quarters were more like a soccer game).

The newer camera angels (compared to the last century) and watching on a big-screen HDTV sure make the game easier to follow.

The Jane Austen story on tonight's "Masterpiece" was quite fine, I thought.  Depressing,  but fine.  

I rather like the show's main theme music ("Masterpiece", that is) and I'm harboring a conceit that it might have been composed by Patrick Doyle, he who composed "Henry V", "Much Ado About Nothing" and "Sense and Sensibility", among others.  It has some of his "sound", although it could be someone else entirely.
