Well, you've read the notes, the notes had too much mayo, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're celebrating Cinco de Mooyo.

One of Anthony's audition friends just turned 50. His partner threw him a wonderful not-surprise party. We ate and talked and laughed. We were so full there was no need for dinner. His partner is well off. Before he met Michael he had bought the apartment they live in now and then he bought the studio next door and broke through so now he (they) have a large one bedroon with two bathrooms! It's nice to see how the other half lives.

I was completely mesmerized by part 1. I liked part 2. But i was not crazy about the ending at all. I know dexter is a serial killer and all. But i would have liked it a lot better if the ice truck killer had just been killed by the police when they found dex and his sis. But i guess since the whole purpose of the show is that dexter is a serial killer, it made more sense the way it ended.  Oh and i did not have any idea who the ice truck killer would be related to until the very end.

And as for Glory Days... Well...



QUASI-SPOILER/REVIEW/OPINION AHEAD







I would say that I didn't "get" it.  Alas, I didn't think there was anything there to get.  I was sitting there wondering if I had become too cynical, too jaded, too something...  I kept trying to pull back, relax and just let the show happen "to" me.  Nothing ever happened.

The strongest element of the show is the music - which is played with gusto by a fine band.  However, there are way too many obvious - at least to me - moments where musical material was added to help stretch out a dramatic moment that probably would have been more effectively handled with two lines of dialogue rather than two (more) minutes of faux-recitative.  I kept thinking that they were laying the groundwork for some sort of MTV-style almost-reality-show long-form music video.  -Shot on Super 8, of course.

Bookwise, it's a bit of a mess.  Yes, the ages of the characters are established - somewhat unsuccessfully, imho - but the time period is never really specified.  Is it the '80s? '90s? '00s?  Judging from some of the pop culture references throughout the show, it could have taken place when I was in high school.  -Unless teenagers who went to school from 2000-2004 happened to watch all of those 1980's specials on VH-1.  I'm guessing the vagueness of the time period - the year in which this one single night is set in - was purposely left vague in order to make it universal.  Unfortunately, all it did for me was to lessen any sort of impact of the not-so-dramatic plot points.

As much as I joke with friends about not liking a show - any show - and wondering when it's going to close - I never really do wish that on anyone.  -Heck, I was with Lestat - need I saw more?  But unless their PR company does some great spin, and keeps on bringing in the student audiences, this show will be a very hard sell even if it does manage to get some favorable reviews.  It also turns out that I have some friends who are with the production, and I've always admired the composer as an actor/singer whenever he's come into auditions.  Alas, there's only so much benefit of the doubt I can give to the production.  :-\

If Delores Del Rio counts and Dabiel Day Lewis counts, then what about Daphne Du Maurier?

Du Maurier is her last name, just as Lloyd Webber is Sir andrew's, and Day Lewis is Daniel's.

Daphne's father, I believe, was the first Captain Hook in Peter Pan.

Isn't the Port Authority at 42nd and 8th Ave?  I thought that Bryant Park was a couple blocks from there.









Yes, Bryant Park is over at 42nd and Sixth Ave.  They called me when they pulled into the garage. Thankfully, I made it to the meeting place - a.k.a. Burger King - before they did, so we're eating at the Westway Diner instead.  ;)


*And the Westway has wireless.

Then I watched the season 1 finale of the show, a spooky episode directed by John Landis about a supposed death an a mental hospital that has haunted Shawn and Gus for twenty years. A tiny bit scary and otherwise very funny stuff. The mystery wasn't so great, but the entertainment value of the show was high.

Yes, Port Authority is at 42nd and 8th and Bryant Park is a quick (if you're a New York walker) two blocks away on 42nd and 6th. It goes a good way along 42nd Street (it doesn't quite get to 5th Avenue) in back of the NY Public Library.

Good Evening!

So...  After supping at Westway, we walked up to the Ambassador Theatre to see what kind of tickets they had for tonight's performance of Chicago.  -And, yes, I printed out the discount vouchers.  The first set of seats to come up were in the last row of the orchestra.. No.  Then I asked if there was anything in the mezzanine, and there were four seats available in the center mezzanine, fourth row.  Not bad at all.

After I made sure that my parents and their friends knew exactly where the theatre was - the corner of 49th & Broadway - I pointed them in the direction of Rockefeller Center/Top of the Rock/St. Patrick's Cathedral (I think they were going to try to make the 5:30 service before the show), and sent them on their merry way.  And I headed up to Columbus Circle to grab the train back uptown.

And, again, I think this was their first trip to New York City in the past year where they did NOT eat at Burger King!  :)

It's adventure time again.  I'm switching jobs.

I'm still at the store, but I'll be working upstairs in the office for three days every week.  I'll be handling the store's billing.

What's happened is that Super Giant has opened another store nearby, in Long Neck.  Over the last few months, while the Long Neck store was being built and while our store was being remodeled, we've been helping train many of the people who will be working at the new store.  A number of our people have also switched to the new store - it's much closer to where they live.

One of the people switching stores is Sandy, a merry and crotchety soul who has been handling our billing for the last couple of years.  About a month ago, it was decided that Larry, one of our front-end managers, would take over Sandy's job, and he started training for it at about that time.

It was not to last.  Larry's long-time partner, David, died suddenly last fall.  His mother has had serious health problems.  And in the last month, Larry started to develop back problems.  The spasms were so bad that he had to go to the hospital once.  And he's been complaining about how unhappy he is with the job assignment, and that he wants nothing more than to retire (something that he'd been talking about before David died).

Well, the Long Neck store opened last Friday.  We've new hires taking the place of the checkers and front-end people who made the move, while those of us who have stayed with the Rehoboth Beach store have moved up.  I was a little puzzled by some of the upwards movement - a couple of people who have been with the store for a while, but were still junior to me, were booted up into front-end supervisory jobs.  I actually mentioned this to our new front end boss, Stacey, who reminded me of the wierd and long hours those people have.  No, I probably wouldn't be too happy with a position like that.

I then mentioned that I would like to be trained for the billing desk, thinking that I could be Larry's back-up, that I might get the training sometime later during the summer.  Stacey said she'd take it up with the store manager.

That was Saturday.

Yesterday, Larry was back in the hospital, stressed out and in agony.  I got in to the store and Stacey was waiting to see me - could I start training to take over the billing desk on Monday?

So, today I started training.

It's more than a little daunting.  I haven't shuffled paper like this for years.  There's a lot of it, with lots of numbers on invoices and dollar signs in the appropriate boxes.  Just making sure the appropriate bills get paid on time would seem to be a full-time job.  I'll also be dealing with errors in billing that the vendors sometimes make, and double-checking the orders that the various department heads receive.  And it's not full-time - instead it's three eight-hour days a week.  I'll still be working as a checker on the other days.

The training Sandy is giving me started today, and will be continuing through the week.  She's happy that I'm already computer literate (Larry was not), and have some experience with filing and organization.  Still, the best word I can think of to describe what I'm feeling is daunted.  I know I can do the job, I just don't know how fast my learning curve is going to be.

I've already had to make one change.  I haven't worn a watch for years, but the room I'll be working in doesn't sport a clock on the wall.  Tonight, after work, der B and I went to WalMart where I found something cheap to put on my arm.  Unfortunately, not a euphamism.

Hmm... For just $2.65, I can get from the Long Beach Airport to Los Feliz on the Metro Rail Blue and Red Lines.  The trip is only supposed to take an hour and a half.  If I take the Super Shuttle Shared Ride service, it would be $46.00 each way, and could take up to two and a half hours to get from the airport to Los Feliz depending how many other passenger drop-offs there are.  Hmm...

But the Long Beach Airport is nowhere near the Metro Rail Blue Line.  And I don't remember any busses stopping right next to the airport terminal, either.  Still, a taxi from the terminal to where you can catch the Blue Line shouldn't be that destructive to your budget.

(Neat, knowing someone who knows what public transportation is like in Long Beach, isn't it!   :D)

There are two busses that run from LGB - well, at least a nearby corner (Lakewood & Spring) - to Willow Station on the Blue Line.  And according to LGB's website, the average cab fare from the airport to the metro station would run around $12.00.  Not bad.

They showed that one on NBC a couple of weeks ago.

I'm disapointed NBC is pulling it. But also disappointed in the way they showed the episodes.

Even though there is not a huge plotline that follows from episode to episode. I think that they should have shown the shows in order.

Before i go, something painful happened yesterday.

My sister, my niece and i were playing that game where you each put your hands on top of the other person's hands, and you continue. Well my sister's finger nails scratched the inside of my hand.

Only thing is her finger nails (which are usually short) felt like claws. and it dug into my palm and took out a chunk.

Boy did that hurt! I didn't want to say how much to make her feel worse. But i did have an ice pack and some cream to disinfect it.

It was still really hurting last night.

Luckily it doesn't really hurt anymore. But it's still all red with a piece missing from my hand! :(

My hands are unlucky. That other mystery scar i got on my wrist from 1-2 months ago still did not go away!. The bottom half is like 60% healed. But the top half still looks like crap.I had no idea it would take this long to disappear. I'm wondering if it actually will.  And the worst part is that i don't even remember getting hurt.

TWO AND A HALF MEN is interesting tonight: the episode is written by the writers of CSI, so it's both a murder mystery and an episode using CSI cliches. The writers of TWO AND A HALF MEN are the writers of Thirsday's comedic(???) CSI.

Would it still be good if you didn't know all the CSI cliches?

This day began so nicely and progressed that way, until a few hours ago.  

To begin with, Sherlock’s paw began to bleed.  At first we thought he had torn a pad, now it looks like a growth.  I told Keith maybe it is “only” an infection like DR George’s cat had.

Then we found out there might be a problem with the buyers of Bryan’s loft getting approved for the loan.  The appraiser made an obvious statement regarding the area & the little comment has sent the loan for review.  ::)

Thank you DRs MBarnum  Jose & TCB.  I keep telling myself –PATIENCE.  Having a place, like here, to vents helps big time.

The vet opens at 8:00 AM.  Just in case we can get an early appointment, & she decides it needs removing, we won’t feed Sherlock.  It is a shame we didn’t notice this before he had his minor surgery last week.  It really is small & we couldn’t see it until it began to bleed.  Because Sherlock has been licking the area Keith looked several times & could only see that the area was getting raw looking.  Whatever this is, it grew very fast in the last two days.

DR Jennifer - About your hands...  I had a friend who was "addicted" to hand lotions and creams, and, consequently, ended up over-moisturizing, and over-softening her hands - which made them very prone to scrapes and scratches.  Are you a hand-cream-a-holic?  ;)

Seriously...

Just how did you sister's nail take a chunk of skin out of your hand?  Did the nail end up going "straight" into you palm?

In any case... Anti-bacterial ointment, and maybe even a band-aid and/or gauze will help.

I did get a chance to see THE TUDORS this evening before prime time started. All of these episodes are so heartrending now. Though at her height, Anne seems to have been very haughty (in the series), now that she's on shaky ground, I do feel sorry for her. (For her father, not so much.)

HOUSE had the always lovely Jason Lewis on tonight playing a soap star (like he did last season on BROTHERS & SISTERS).








































The HOUSE formula might need some tweaking now. The patient ever-worsening until a near death revelation saves him is starting to get a bit tiresome. Yes, they did let a patient or two die over the years, but that hardly changes the formula for the show. Don't know exactly how they could mix things up, but something needs to happen for me to continue with the show next season. And there are just TOO many doctors on the team. Bring back Chase and Cameron and get rid of the new ones hired this season.

By Wednesday, I've been promised three Blu-rays, and later in the week I'll be getting the review copies of the new Criterion THIEF OF BAGDAD along with the HD-DVD of AUGUST RUSH (been out awhile), and an Indian film (are you reading this, DR MBarnum?) called VANAJA.
