Well, you've read the notes, the notes were waxy but not very Brazilian, and now it is time for you to post until the Brazilian cows come home - they're off somewhere blaming everything on the Bossa Nova.

I have a toad problem.  There is a toad that keeps coming into the house somehow.  He was on the kitchen table last night and on the floor this morning.

I keep catching him and taking him out but I think he likes in here because he keeps coming back!  I think he must be coming through the doggie door but I wouldn't think a little toad could move the flaps.  I don't want to hurt him but he has to understand that toads stay outside. 

Maybe he's my prince but I have no wish to kiss him.  :)

DR Cillaliz i'm curious who your favorites are on DANCING WITH THE STARS?

I planned to like rocco. But he is just not very good.

I also like cody and julianne but i find he has so much potential but is just so stiff looking.

The two teams i am cheering for who are impressing me:

Brooke (and david hough). I just think she is incredible. She almost looks like a pro.

Lance (and lacey). I knew lacey from SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. She wasn't one of my favs. But i'm liking her this year. I love her creative choreography. And i feel like lance is doing great.

What did you think of cloris last night? She did do a lot better! And while i agree that she pushed herself maybe as far as she could go, I thought it was weird to give her an 8 and then give somebody who was obviously better a much lower mark.

UPS dropped off a review disc this morning. Alas, not SLEEPING BEAUTY. It was SHREK THE HALLS which doesn't street until November 4th. It'll be at least a week before I get that that. Besides, I saw the show on ABc last Christmas, and I wasn't very impressed with it. But, it's only 22 minutes, and maybe I'll like it more on a revisit.

I haven't won a great many things, but I have won a few items.

I've won Bingo once in my life, and I won a salt and pepper shaker set that included a pepper mill. My parents used that set until the day they died.

I won a contest for the soundtrack LP of MY FAIR LADY by correctly identifying who played Eliza in the 1938 movie version of PYGMALION. There were three LPs offered, and that was back when you MAILED in your entry. The earliest postmark on the envelope determined the winners. My parents were busy on the Saturday when I read about the contest, so I walked the four miles to the post office to get my entry to the PO.

Ron Pulliam's dear friend (whose name just went out of my brain) who had his own syndicated TV program CINEMA SHOWCASE offered the soundtrack album for NASHVILLE as a prize for the first 10 callers. I won one of those.

I've won two CD prizes here doing the Unseemly Quizzes of BK.

And I won the 2-disc DVD of ALICE IN WONDERLAND from The Digital Bits years before I started reviewing DIsney discs.

Those are the first things that come to mind.

I'm back from a lovelier than lovely walk down from 82nd Street to 72nd through Riverside Park, which is glorious at the moment: the day and weather are wonderful, lots of nurses nd their children all over the Park, and a nice walk for contemplation.  Then over to Broadway and a stop at Broadway Market at 77th. I ran into Elaine Stritch's musical director Rob Bowman and had a nice chat with him. They're off to Pittsburgh in two days and then off to Detroit. She keeps working, God love her.

I got in, took some laundry out of the dryers; one is still working poorly, which has been a cosntant annoyance for about two months now. The big question is, are the complaints to the landlord getting to the service people or are the swervice people incompetent? So, I've got another hour of laundry while other things dry.

I just called DR Jose to check in on things, and his family is meeting with her surgeon around 1 pm, which I would guess is for a status report on how things are progressing. We only spoke briefly and I know he'll provide a much more inteligent and informed update than mine later.  Keep those vibes coming!

It's pretty well known that I don't drive.  (Even after promising that I would, but we haven't gotten around to it yet, and I haven't had much time off from work so that I can get in much or any practice.)

So, years ago, it provoked a good deal of laughter when I won a door prize at the office Christmas party: a complementary lube job for my car.

On the other hand, that's what someone considered a Christmassy door prize?  Sheesh.

I've gone through life saying, "I've never won ANYthing!"  Generally, I mean that in the sense that I've never won anything "substantial."

Of course I've picked up the odd win here and there.  I have won a couple of sparkling prizes in the latent Broadway quizzes here at HainesHisWay.com.  One was the incandescent "Das Barbešu"!  :D

I once won a table clock as a sort of raffle prize at the Allied Officers Club annual Charity Bazaar in Naples, Italy.  The clock is battery operated and looks ornate, but its main feature -- a faux pendulum -- does not work.  That, of course, is why it was donated to the raffle (which had tons of prizes).  So...it was nice to have "won", but it would have been nicer without the flawed movement.

I've also won the odd bottle of wine at dinner parties, etc.  Do lottery wins count?  I've played so long that I've never come close to recouping what I spend on lottery tickets in six months, so I don't exactly jump up and down and dream of retirement when I pick up the odd $70 or $140 dollars on very rare occasions.

My Aunt Doris is a "winner" when it comes to prizes.  She seems to win just about everything she enters (except lottery jackpots).  If a store is giving away a refrigerator, my Aunt Doris's entry stub will be drawn.  If there is a trip to Hawaii, my Aunt Doris wins it.  Most family members who are with her won't even bother entering if she does.  Of course, she doesn't win every time (and neither does anyone else "we" know).  But she's one of those people who seem to have the "touch".

I do win auctions many times.  But, you know...you have to PAY when you do that!  ;)

Title: Re: BRAZILIAN WAX

A friend of mine just went on in a major role at the Metropolitan Opera last night - the premiere of John Adam's Doctor Atomic, about the life of Robert Openheimer.

To actors you say, "Break a leg!"

To opera singers, you say either "Toi, toi, toi" or "In bocca al lupo" [in the mouth of the wolf], to which the proper response is "Crepi il lupo" [I will eat the wolf].  Don't ask me why.   :)

Re: Last night's "Heroes"




SPOILERS





Salacadoola menchacaboola bibbido-bobbidi-boo I was pretty well pleased with last night's episode.  It's nice to see Angela Petrelli's more vulnerable side from time to time and she has lately been such an uber-witch that last night's show was a nice change of pace.  I think it's very odd, but endearing, that we're seeing a more gentle Sylar, although I'm not certain whether that's because Peter Petrelli took his more dangerous attributes from him or what.  That's not clear to me, although that may be what happened.  I'm not at all pleased with what we're seeing Mohinder doing, but there may be something a bit less sinister going on than meets the eye.  So far as I can tell, he's putting his "victims" into some kind of stasis rather than killing them.  But...is he also "changing" them for some purpose?  The Hiro/Ando bit grew tireseome again, but I wasn't prepared -- and did not believe -- the slaying of Ando by Hiro.  Hiro obviously stabbed him, but I'm guessing he has an ulterior motive -- plus the option of going back and turning the tables on everyone whenever he wants to.  Hiro, at least, has the retention of memory when he goes back in time.  Adrian Pasdar looked a bit different last night as Nathan Petrelli.  His grooming or something gave him a different, yet better, look.  I laughed out loud -- and repeated my laughter at the memory of it later -- over that scene with him and Ali Larter in bed.   They had obviously slept together, but she was still wearing her pearls!  LOL!!!  I liked the sequence with Claire and the man who created vortexes.  Claire is more appealing when she isn't being forced to act "severe".  I look forward to upcoming episodes.  HRG -- or, Noah Bennett -- just doesn't seem to ever "get it".  As many times as he seemingly "rehabilitates" his attitude, he still does stuff that is going to lead to disaster in his personal life.  Supercalifgragilistiexpialidocious even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious.

Besides a few things (very minor) Iwon through Top 40 radio stations, I won $45.00 (all in quarters just as I was boarding the plane from Las vegas to Phoenix.  The cashier at Lucky's was not amused when I used them to pay for groceries the next day.

I won a radio (that somewhat resembled R2D2 long before R2D2 existed) by winning an essay contest through a local furniture store on "Why I Love America."  This was in 1970, so anyone who loved America probably won something.

I also won a plane ticket for a trip to Disneyland.  My mother was going to fly to the east coast to see her mother around that time, and times were tough  then for my family, so i traded the ticket in for her trip to Philadelphia and paid the difference with a tax refund.

My aunt has always been one of thos people who enter contests and wants me to do so.

Oh, I also won the soundtrack LP to "Grease" and two tickets to the Phoenix premiere for coming in second place for a 50's trivia contest.  OY!!!!!

She also wrote a poem to her errant never seen boyfriend that went:

You're someone after all.

--At our library's annual Staff Day, I won anything I wanted from the Recorded Books, Inc. catalog (David McCullough's John Adams on CD),

--At a professional gathering, I won a day planner, and,

--At a holiday dinner that my mom's financial planner threw for his clients, I won the ceramic snowman that was our table's centerpiece.

They finished the surgeries about a half an hour ago, and we'll get to see her in another half hour or so.  Everything went very well, and it turned out she only needed a single bypass instead of a double.

Thanks again for all the Love and Concern.

I just saw my Mom, and spoke to her nurse. All is well, and it looks like she might even be awake in a few hours. So, my Dad is going to head home for a bit, and I'm going to head back to Carytown for some celebratory window-shopping - and maybe even a stop at For The Love Of Chocolate or Bev's Ice Cream (again).

I do have to say that even though it was a little hard/strange to see my father cry after we got the good news from the surgeon, i'm glad to know that he finally let "it" out. -He's never been one to show his emotions openly. He's very happy right now, and I'm looking forward to HIM getting a good night's sleep tonight (since it was apparently a bit noisy for him last night here at the hospital). And since it's a "light week" in the Cardiac Unit here, my Mom also has only one nurse in CSICU. And Kate has told us that if my Mom doesn't wake up until after the designated visiting window tonight, that she would let us come back after hours. :)

*I also found out that my mother's cardiac surgeon is one of the top-rated cardiac surgeons in the country. -Must have been those Vibes!

Hello all!  I just received a phone call from our dear and wonderful cyber-father TCB, and I realized I'd been incredibly neglectful about updating the HHW world about our new little son.  I beg your forgiveness, and can only blame the time-warping tiredness that seems to have enveloped me.  It seems like days come and go in sets of two and three now.  So, on to the news.  As I think TCB told you, Toby was born a little over five weeks early...a complete surprise to everybody.  He spent a week in the NICU figuring out how to breathe and eat on his own, and battling a case of jaundice, and then was allowed home.  I get to stay home with him until December 1st, which is lovely.  He's a darling little baby, who keeps me very busy!  He still hasn't figured out the difference between day and night, but since I'm at liberty to sleep when he sleeps during the day, it's working out alright.

A few pictures -

I have to agree with what DR JRand said last night about Carole Lombard.  As much as I adore her, she did not make many memorable movies.  After watching the always wonderful MY MAN GODFREY last night, I tried to sit though NO MAN OF HER OWN in which she co-starred with Clark Gable.  You would think that the sparks between the two would be there, but they're not.  I quit it half way through.

And why do I always forget that Lombard was NOT in TOPPER?

This 4-6 week closing is ridiculous since we're now into week 8 and the damned county, which I would think would have its act together before signing off on these property sales, still hasn't provided the buyer with the necessary paperwork for the closing. This is total bullshit, and i am starting to fear this closing will drag on until 2009. I'm mostly pissed because I wanted to use a small portion of the sale to pay for a Thanksgiving trip, shipment of about 25 more cartons to Miami University, and purchase of a couple of pieces of furniture.

Right now I'm very frustrated, and I could use more vibes to get this thing rolling. Now if we could only sell the rest of the three acres!

As for afternoon viewing, I began watching MISSING, that marvelous Costa-Gavras political seek and find thriller from the early 1980s. Just as wonderful now as it was then, and I think I appreciate it more now that I'm older and have lost my father (so I can understand and appreciate more the father's intensity about finding his son). And with all of the information that has come out in the decades since the film was made about the US involvement in foreign political revolutions. And, of course, there's the ever-present portrait of Richard Nixon on the wall of the Embassy as the ambassadors spew out one lie after another to cover their tracks.

What a brilliant film.
Title: Re: BRAZILIAN WAX
Post by: Matt H. on October 14, 2008, 01:28:13 PM
Anyway, about an hour into the film, I hear a package hit my front porch, and sure enough, there is FINALLY the Blu-ray of SLEEPING BEAUTY. What to do? Well, I went ahead and finished watching MISSING. I didn't watch any of the bonuses. But I'll get to those tomorrow.

Title: Re: BRAZILIAN WAX
Post by: Matt H. on October 14, 2008, 01:32:46 PM
When MISSING finished, I immediately put in the Blu-ray of SLEEPING BEAUTY, and a beauty it is indeed. I did see the flickering in a couple of places that DR JMK mentioned, but otherwise, the color was so rich and deep, and the details in the backgrounds of those forest scenes were astounding. I paused it a couple of times just to study the artwork. Lots of details in the colors in walls I had never noticed before, etc. Beautiful.

The DTS-HD Master Audio track had substantial bass for the first time I've ever heard it in all the incarnations of SB that I've owned. Sometimes the directionalized dialog and singing wasn't quite audible enough for effective phantom imaging, but I admire the effort to bring what I've always considered an underwhelming soundtrack to much worthier standards to match with that breathtaking picture.

A portable CD player from Zero candy bar...I gave it to my dad because I already had one with more options.

A trip to Montery, California.  My sister had entered all our names and mine was the one that was picked.  I didn't get to go because my sister had just gotten married, so they used it for their honeymoon.

I've won several raffles and drawings here at work for various fund-raisers.  My favorite was a reproduction of a 1930s radio.  It's beautiful. :D

I've won one, count 'em, ONE sparkling prize from BK's Trivia Contest.

Twice (different years), I won a pair of tickets to a local theater group's productions.

I did enjoy this week's show more than last week's. But there are still some things this season that i hate.  The main thing is that Peter Petrelli is a big part of the show. And he's a lot of people's fav. But they are totally ruining him this year. He was a big reason i've loved the show. But the directions they are taking him in are not interesting and i really dislike him as the villain.

I like nathan and tracey together. And find the linderman aspect very fascinating. I like finding out they were "created". And i do like the softer side of sylar. Cannot stand what they are doing with mohinder. Yuck. It was interesting the first week. But now it's a big turn-off. Especially watching him with maya.

I'm not sure how i feel about the claire stuff. The interaction with the vortex guy were quite interesting. But it seems like her character is all over the place.
I don't hate the stuff with hiro (since i love him). I like adam monroe so i was glad to see him back. I like daphne. So it will be interesting to see how all that plays out.

I think the most interesting and confusing part was the end. Finding out matt's father (mr. parkman) has been putting linderman in people's heads and that papa petrelli is alive. That took me by surprise. And that was one of the things i used to love about heroes. Surprises that take you by surprise and that are interesting.

Good Evening!

Nurse Kate called my Dad around 5:00, and said that my Mom woke up for a few minutes, but then went back to sleep.  So, we're just staying put tonight, but we'll head over in the morning for the visiting "hour" from 10:00-10:30.  She also said that they were about to take out her breathing tube - which is a very good thing, since that means her body is returning to "normal" - and at quite a fast rate. :)

In the meantime, I did head back over to Carytown.  I was a little dismayed to see a few more "For Rent" signs in some formerly open and occupied storefronts, but at least my favorites were still open.  I did go back to Bev's for a cup of ice cream: half Apple Cinnamon, half Coffee Heath Bar.  -Last night, I had half a cup of Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie, and half Cinna-Bean (cinnamon ice cream with chocolate-covered espresso beans - my favorite!).

I also stopped into Plan 9 Music (http://www.plan9music.com/Home) where they had some great sale prices on some new and not-so-new releases, so... I have some new music to listen to on the ride back to NYC this weekend.  I then picked up a couple of holiday-scented votive candles at Mongrel (http://www.mongrelonline.com/), and while I was there I also got to catch up with my friend, Doug, who also owns and runs the store.  -It's a great store!

I stopped in a few other places: Jean-Jacques Bakery (http://www.carytownbakery.com/) - they recently remodeled...  Tokyo Market - where I did not buy more origami paper... Merrymaker - I may go back later this week and pick up some stationery, and some of their Halloween decorations (all of which are only a dollar!)... Ukrop's (http://www.ukrops.com/) - I just always have to stop into Ukrop's and walk the aisles for a bit... 7-11 - lottery tickets, ya' know.  ;)

All in all, a very nice way to spend the afternoon.

As for the Topic of the Day....

When we lived in Connecticut, I was a regular winner of the radio contests on WRNL.  In fact, I had won so often at one point, that I was "banned" from calling in (and winning) for a period of six months.  I won various prizes: t-shirts, tickets to the county fair, tickets to see The Fantasticks (my parents used those), tickets to see The Village People (I didn't bother to pick up those - I was only nine at the time), etc., etc., etc.

I also used to win various raffles: house plants(!), store gift certificates, restaurant coupons.

Lottery-wise, I've had a few nice wins, well, at least enough to almost break even on all the money I've spent on playing the numbers over the years.  -Oh, and my Dad just won $100 on a scratcher!

I won a few of the contests that the Smithsonian website would have from time to time: a small hedgehog stuffed animal, and a window card for Rent.

I was the Grand Prize winner one year of MTI's own website contest.  They would post a clue in the form of a limerick, and you had to guess the name of the show and/or the character.  I won an autographed copy of one of Steven Suskin's books, as well as the 3-CD Most Happy Fella on Jay Records (which DR elmore assisted on/with).  -And I was the Grand Prize winner since I had won a number of the weekly contests throughout the year - thus, I had also won a couple of other OCRs - including two copies of Secrets Every Smart Traveller Should Know :-\  ;)

I also think I've won a Sparking Prize from this here website too.

Bev's also makes a Coffee Oreo, and a Mocha Almond which are quite good.

*Strangely enough, Ben & Jerry's opened up a Scoop Shop last year just a few doors down from them.  It's "strange" since B&J had already had a store in Carytown a couple of years ago - across the street from Bev's - but it closed down after just a year in business.

What does "First Authorized Release" mean?  Well, I'll tell you what THEY think it means.  It means they went to a lot of trouble to get permission that they didn't need, because Evening Primrose as a TV program was never copyrighted.  I got the only permission I needed - from Mr. Sondheim and his lawyer - that is who my deal is with.  The fact that these people went and paid someone a fee they didn't need to is not my affair, but to call their release the first authorized release is sheer and utter nonsense, and least as far as I can see.

It's pretty well known that I don't drive.  (Even after promising that I would, but we haven't gotten around to it yet, and I haven't had much time off from work so that I can get in much or any practice.)

So, years ago, it provoked a good deal of laughter when I won a door prize at the office Christmas party: a complementary lube job for my car.

On the other hand, that's what someone considered a Christmassy door prize?  Sheesh.


There have been many Christmas Eve's when I would have killed for such a door prize.

BK, I'm assuming that the tracks of both releases are mono.  It's hard to tell with the Kritzerland tracks...they're so vibrant. :D The new "authorized" tracks are quite flat and VERY noticeably mono. :-\

A couple of other differences...what is called "Charles' Schedule / If You Can Find Me, I'm Here (reprise)" on the Kritzerland CD is called "Arts and Crafts" (the first words of the track).  Also, the "authorized" version lists "I Remember Sky" as the title.  It's NOT.  The title has always been "I Remember"...no "Sky" in the title.  "I remember sky..." is the first line of the song, but not the title.  Someone didn't check that.

Hello all!  I just received a phone call from our dear and wonderful cyber-father TCB, and I realized I'd been incredibly neglectful about updating the HHW world about our new little son.  I beg your forgiveness, and can only blame the time-warping tiredness that seems to have enveloped me.  It seems like days come and go in sets of two and three now.  So, on to the news.  As I think TCB told you, Toby was born a little over five weeks early...a complete surprise to everybody.  He spent a week in the NICU figuring out how to breathe and eat on his own, and battling a case of jaundice, and then was allowed home.  I get to stay home with him until December 1st, which is lovely.  He's a darling little baby, who keeps me very busy!  He still hasn't figured out the difference between day and night, but since I'm at liberty to sleep when he sleeps during the day, it's working out alright.

Well, how can anyone take anything they say seriously then?  I knew my master would be better than theirs and from what I've heard, it is.  And since Mr. Deutsch bought a copy of our CD he very well could have used it.  I suspect they MAY have used it in When if their is no tape problem where two words are missing.  That was a flaw on the mastertape and all the LPs made by Sondheim - a flaw I fixed by figuring out something clever and having a mastering engineer good enough to be able to make it work.

This 4-6 week closing is ridiculous since we're now into week 8 and the damned county, which I would think would have its act together before signing off on these property sales, still hasn't provided the buyer with the necessary paperwork for the closing. This is total bullshit, and i am starting to fear this closing will drag on until 2009. I'm mostly pissed because I wanted to use a small portion of the sale to pay for a Thanksgiving trip, shipment of about 25 more cartons to Miami University, and purchase of a couple of pieces of furniture.

Right now I'm very frustrated, and I could use more vibes to get this thing rolling. Now if we could only sell the rest of the three acres!



Rapid Closing Vibes for DR Elmore!

In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded.

Sumo Bank has gone belly up.

Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some branches.

Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

Samurai Bank has had to cut its staff in half.

Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal!

I started winning radio call in shows when I was about 10.  I won a pass to the movie theater.  I won those regularly on KICD when I was growing up.  I've won raffles for $$ and all kinds of stuff.  I think my favorite was a trip to San Diego that I won from KSLX in Phoenix by singing We Didn't Start The State to the tune of We Didn't Start the Fire.    Although the $1000 from the Rotary raffle wasn't bad either

T.O.D.

Back in the 80s, one of the Seattle radio stations used to give away sets of tickets to a lot of the touring productions at the the 5th Avenue Theatre.  Apparently not very many Broadway trivia fans listened to that station between 6 and 7:00 a.m., so I used to win at will.  Unfortunately, the tickets were usually for a Tuesday or Wednesday evening, and I was alway in rehearsals for some show.

I won a tennis racket and a can of balls at the YMCA when I was about 12.

I won a set of children's encyclopedia when I was a kid.

I have won several small jackpots on lottery tickets over the years.

Oh, and I won a lot of wonderful friends when I found Haines His Way, plus a couple of sparkling prizes.

You may wonder what I'm doing on-line at 9:06pm on the night I said I was going to see Billy Elliot. Well, I was settled in my seat (Row G, Aisle Seat No. 1 Rear Mezzanine) when at 5 minutes to 8 the House Manager came on and said "I have some bad news" There was trouble with one of the hydraulic lifts and instead of trying to do the show without that piece of scenery (too dangerous they decided), they cancelled the show!

The audience was NOT happy. I'm disappointed because I really want to see the show and it will be a bit of a hassle going back to exchange for another night but I've got lots of dates picked out and I will try to get another ticket at the Starving Actor rate. I hope to see it soon because my friend who is a child wrangler on the show said something is going to be cut. The show is running at 3 hours and they don't want to go into overtime so something will be cut in the next week or two before they open.

I'm going to the theatre tomorrow on my lunch hour to try and exchange the ticket.

It's a beautiful night in New York so I walked home from the theatre.

I'm really not particularly fond of Lance and Lacey.  I think Cloris should go home, but she did work really hard last week and was much better.  Rocco can't dance but I wish he could.   I like Warren and Kim,  and Brook and Derek the most.

The house manager said they were working for over a half hour trying to fix it. They may be working into the night to get it fixed. It's probably cheaper to pay them overtime then to cancel more shows.

The rest of this week, with the exception of Saturday night is on my list for a replacement date. If I can get a ticket for tomorrow evening I'll see you there.

Even though I have lots of theatre lined up I also have lots of open dates between now and the time it opens so I hope I can get something by being so flexible.

I think in this ridiculous effort at these mammoth sets with hydraulics they are going to find this happening more and more - it happens almost nightly with 9 to 5.  I can promise you if Nudie Musical gets to B'way it will be delightfully retro in that regard.

New MacBook Pros?  I'm obsolete already???

As always, they save the 17" screen for a few months down the road.

I thought your MacBook was a bit "older" - maybe even three or four "generations" ago at this point?

*And the MacBook Pro line has had a 17" screen for a while now.

**And Mac has a "habit" of rolling out something new every six months as it is, so...  Just wait until January.  ;)

DR Ben - :-\

Hmm... Interesting note about the running time.  I know a couple of people who have already seen the show, and they've been saying that the three hours goes by very fast.  Alas, if they have to cut something to bring it under three hours, ah, well...  I guess this will be one of those shows that will actually start at 8:00 and not 8:05, and will have a true 15-minute intermission and not an 18 or 22 minute one.  -However, I don't seem to recall hearing that the London production running over the three hour mark.  ???

*Maybe they can ask for some concessions from and with the unions.  I mean with all the "experimental" and "tiered" tour contracts now, I would think they could work something out.  (Yeah, right.)

**I actually sort of purposely missed the revival of Les Miserables since I actually do and did miss the 15 minutes they cut from the show during the original run of the show.

It's pretty well known that I don't drive.  (Even after promising that I would, but we haven't gotten around to it yet, and I haven't had much time off from work so that I can get in much or any practice.)

So, years ago, it provoked a good deal of laughter when I won a door prize at the office Christmas party: a complementary lube job for my car.

On the other hand, that's what someone considered a Christmassy door prize?  Sheesh.


There have been many Christmas Eve's when I would have killed for such a door prize.

I had a rather nice day today.

Der B got off the phone with a fellow he's been working with re elections databases in the Los Angeles area, and I suggested that, instead of both of us going to the Farmer's Market, I should go solo if he were to drive me there, and then walk home.  He was agreeable, and I had a very enjoyable time talking with other customers and some of the vendors.

Then I started walking home, and stopped by Beautiful Foods, the local gourmet shoppe, for a few items.  Heading up the highway, I crossed over and had a nice chat with my former boss over at Kitchen Collections, then browsed my way through the outlet mall before heading home.

All I need now is to figure out how I'm going to stuff the peppers I bought at the market, which should be very yummilicious for tomorrow's dinner.

It was a fun fun show.  You can sort of see the steps on each side of the stage that lead up to the bridge above us....the black spot behind us was a screen that had slides projected onto it, and scenes acted out in silhouette now and then.

I've had a very full night of viewing. I began with the bonus features on SLEEPING BEAUTY. Four hours laster and I still wasn't finished with them. I'll have to finish up tomorrow morning and get the review up then. A few hours one way or another after being a week late won't make any difference now.

I did enjoy the making of and sound restoration documentaries, and the Blu-ray has that picture-in-picture commentary with lots of added storyboards, photos, films clips, etc. constantly popping up (though I can't imagine ever wanting to see that again).

GRAND CANYON in 1080p and DTS-HD Master Audio sound was fairly spectacular.

Then I watched tonight's FRINGE. I did enjoy it than the previous two episodes, but I'm wondering if I just want to get any more involved in a sci-fi kind of show. I'll have to think long and hard about this before next week. But Mark Valley sure is gorgeous to look at.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the season premiere of ELI STONE. I was grinning stupidly from the first beats of "Dancing in the STreet" with Loretta Devine singing marvelously. The story really hooked me, and, as usual, left me teary-eyed by the end.

DR MBarnum did you figure out what was happening on Facebook?  I see you deleted the items ;)

Never did figure it out, and haven't had any problem since.

DR MBarnum - It sounds like you got hacked.  -Must be those Bollywood fans.  ;)

Well, then why don't they add Bollywood youtube clips instead of airline clips?

And how does one get and un-get hacked?

It just gets worse. I've just read that uncertainty has now hit the Japanese banking sector:

In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded.

Sumo Bank has gone belly up.

Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some branches.

Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

Samurai Bank has had to cut its staff in half.

Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal!


Would you believe I read this whole thing before I realized it was a joke?

Just how much would you pay to have a naked tennis lesson with Andy Roddick?

 Looking forward to going to the Ken Burns lecture tomorrow night. It was fun to hear him interviewed on the radio this morning.

Our GUESTS really have no clew anymore.  I'd guess we lost three-quarters of them when the board switched addresses - shows what happens when you miss the notes two days in a row.  They probably didn't read the notes anyway, and just figured we folded.  As if.

This is the problem when one stays away.  There are many posts about unsquishing your avatar - search squished and unsquished and you should find easy instructions on how to fix it.

I'm still congested but today was a much better day, with not nearly so much coughing and phlegm.  My voice is still pretty shot, though.

I watched and recorded tonight's episode of "Eli Stone."  It was very good.  Now, I'm burning a DVD for my friend, Margo (she has no cable).  I also bought the first season DVDs, which Margo can borrow, since I wasn't able to record the first five episodes for her when they were originally broadcast.
