The first time I actually remember eating ice cream was when I regained consciousness after having my tonsils out at age 5 (It was a great vanilla - and soon there after my Father arrived with my promised Cowboy Suit - as promised for being brave about the surgery.) Actually, I was concerned because I "came to" crying and was very upset because I was crying!

Favorite flavors are Egg Nog, Rum Raisin and Black Raspberry - served with rich dark chocolate.

I have never had a flavor ice cream I didn't enjoy (but then I've never had either trout or asparagus ice cream that have been featured on Iron Chef America).

I can't remember when the first time I had ice cream...but one of the earliest memories that I have is when I was probably three years old and we lived in Texas (my dad was in the army), an ice cream truck would come to our neighborhood and we would chase after the truck with ice cream that we just bought.  That's one of my earliest memories of any kind.

TOD - I don't remember it, but my first taste of ice cream must have been at Larry's (not DR elmore), the ice cream stand across the street from our house in Portland, Oregon.  My mother tells about taking me there in a stroller and hearing Larry wondering how he could take a vacation without someone to work the store.  Mom volunteered and worked there until we moved to Detroit then I was 2 and a half.

There isn't much ice cream I don't like - I'll try to have some chocolate chip at Graeter's when we're in Cincinnati this afternoon.

Good morning, all! I have a long day working on Brent's holiday album before I meet Matthew, my best friend from college, to see TAKING WOODSTOCK at 5:00. I am very much looking forward to it. By the time we have dinner and I get home, it will be rather late, but I will check in during the day.

The was a frozen locker/butcher on Park Street, which was within walking distance of my grandmother's house on Tenth Avenue, that made ice cream and sold it out of two windows facing the street; you could also buy cartons, although we always got cones. I have no idea of the name of the locker but he place was always referred to as "Park Street Ice Cream" and that was my favorite place to go on a hot summer night. My dad loved ice cream so he was always ready to drive everyone there, wait in line for a rather long period of time, and the ice cream was delicious. When that area was overhauled by the City in the 1970s, Park Street Ice Cream vanished and showed up briefly in Trenton, Ohio.

The other ice cream place was on Central Avenue, Elite's, which made their own ice cream and candies; the shop was the place to go after high school in the 1960s. By the 1970s, Elite's had moved to Crawford Street before vanishing as well.

My dad's two favorite flavors were strawberry and black cherry, and they are two of mine as well.

I can't believe I was able to do it because my arm was hurting this morning, but I pushed myself to get the front yard mowed. It was not fun, and if this condition persists into next summer, I'll have to hire out the mowing of the yard because it's just too bothersome to do it.

I finished watching HARPER'S ISLAND last night.  It took me 2 days to watch all 13 episodes.

The show is no work of art, but it is fun and, I must admit, I did "jump" a couple of times.

However, I did have a pretty good idea who the killer was by the end of episode 6.  It was just a hunch, but it turned out to be right.

Another ice cream place I loved was Washtenaw Dairy (http://washtenawdairy.com) in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  My aunt and her family lived near there when I was in junior high and I remember that the ice cream cones were about the size of parking meters.  It's a townie place, so it took some convincing on my part to get my college friends to go there.

I think it's the model for the corner dairy where the characters in Valerie Laken's book Dream House go for ice cream.

Hope this is not a controversial statement, but watching MONK and PSYCH last night (not something I regularly do) made me think as a hypothesis that the lighthearted graphic treatment of murder and corpses on TV are contributing to a certain distancing of the impact of death of others in the real world, an immunization to people for the horror of the death of people who are outside of our own circles.   

That ends my philoso-pothesis for the weekend.  :)

Don't remember the first time, but it had to be chocolate. When I traveled by car to go to Cape Code for the first time we stop at a Howard Johnson and I had a Moca Chip. And that flavor and its variants (capucinno chip, chocolate chip) are now my favorite.

Does Howard Johnson exist anymore selling ice cream?

TOD:

I don't generally like sherbets, but just about any other ice cream is to die for. I assume vanilla was the first ice cream I was given. It was my father's favorite and we always had some on hand (I preferred chocolate), but I tend to buy one flavor ice cream instead of the innumerable combinations that are also available.

Salt Lake City had two wonderful, old fashioned ice cream parlors, Snelgrove's and VaLora's.  VaLora's had divoon chocolate and Snelgrove's had amazing Burnt Almond Fudge.  My sister was just in SLC and said Snelgrove's had closed, sadly.  They had a huge rotating double scoop ice cream cone (ice cream cone, did you say ice cream cone?  Yes, rotating ice cream cone--a Monty Python reference, kind of ;) ) on their street sign.

DR TCB - I was just checking out some pictures on one of my friend's Facebook pages, and I'm surprised that when you posted the pics from Guys & Dolls here on HHW that I didn't recognize or realize that I knew your Sarah Brown, Jenness!  I guess her married name threw me off.


Are you serious?  You know Jenny?

I still Chocolate Chip in the freezer case of my grocery store(s), and at the various ice cream and gelato places I frequent.

Was there a sale on ice cream this weekend? Chocolate Chip is usually one of the first flavors to sell out.

This meeting is something that's very annoying to me - a couple of the people involved in the long musical thrive on mind games, and this meeting is the result of such a mind game.  However, as the person will find out, it's going to backfire on him - he's got one thing in mind (and I've already been told what it is by another member of the team), but it's going to turn around on him in a major way and I'm hoping that after this meeting all unnecessary and pointless drama, of which this person is the Queen, will cease once and for all.

Gelson's doesn't really do sales on anything.  No, there was simply not a container of chocolate chip ice cream anywhere - not any brand, which seemed odd to me.  I'll check Von's out later today.

Nope.  I only buy Baskin Robbins Chocolate Chip.  I have it hand packed in the store so I can see it is loaded with chips.  In the past I found the pre-packed to be short on the chips.  This was years ago & maybe the problem has been rectified, still I like to see what I'm getting.

And as for the Topic of the Day...

I'm really not sure what my first ice cream memory was, but...

-I remember the dishes of orange sherbet that were served as dessert whenever we went out for Chinese food.

-The vanilla soft-serve cones from Herfy's. The Kid's Meals had a coupon that you would punch-out from the box. You'd bring it up to counter - after you finished your burger, of course ;) - and claim your cone.

*DR TCB - Are there still Herfy's in Seattle?

-I also remember those blue Snow Star ice cream boxes from Safeway. My parents usually had a carton of Neapolitan ice cream in the freezer.  Sometimes we would scoop it out of the carton, other times we would open up the carton and slice it.

Hope this is not a controversial statement, but watching MONK and PSYCH last night (not something I regularly do) made me think as a hypothesis that the lighthearted graphic treatment of murder and corpses on TV are contributing to a certain distancing of the impact of death of others in the real world, an immunization to people for the horror of the death of people who are outside of our own circles.   

That ends my philoso-pothesis for the weekend.  :)

I don't generally like sherbets, but just about any other ice cream is to die for. I assume vanilla was the first ice cream I was given. It was my father's favorite and we always had some on hand (I preferred chocolate), but I tend to buy one flavor ice cream instead of the innumerable combinations that are also available.

I don't remember the brand, but there's a Neapolitan chocolate with five different chocolate flavors from white to dark chocolate that's very good, and it's not too rich. :D

OH!  And I think there was an Ice Creamery across from the piano place in the mall that I took lesson at when I lived in Seattle.  I only think this because I remember trying that Black Licorice Ice Cream.  I didn't really like it, but it was really cool just how black and gray and it would make your teeth and tongue.

*They also had Bubble Gum Ice Cream that had bits of bubble gum in it.  Of course, ice-cream-cold bubble gum doesn't really "chew".  You sort of had to store it in your cheeks - like a chipmunk - until you had enough bits of gum, and until it had warmed up enough to be chewable.

*Oh, and there was an Orange Julius stand next to the ice cream place too. :)

Back from our afternoon in Cincinnati.  Our main errand was to go to Rob's garret and turn off the window air conditioner, which he'd left on last night and didn't want to keep running until Monday.  I was also quite pleased to see how thoroughly cleared out his room is.  All we have to do Monday is use his cousin's truck to transport the bed, dresser, desk, and chair.

Richard and I then went downtown for lunch at Izzy's - we each had a bowl of beef barley soup and half a Reuben.  Then, Kenwood Towne Center, where Richard bought PJs and I tried to get the Estee Lauder gift-with-purchase.  They didn't have the item I wanted to purchase, though, so I passed.  Then we went to a Hallmark store that sells Vera Bradley, where I tried to spend a gift card that I'd gotten in payment for presenting at a conference.  Didn't find anything I couldn't live without, so I passed there, too.

And, no Graeter's chocolate chip, because my purchase of a pound of coffee at Starbuck's entitled me to a free latte and that satisfied my sweet tooth for the time being.

Now, we're home in front of the TV waiting for Sen. Kennedy's motorcade.

Very frustrating afternoon with my new Onkyo system.  I think the receiver has a bad chip--it's stuck in some sort of random loop message.  MattH may remember I had bad luck with another Onkyo system a few years ago.  I dread having to package this back up and get it back to Amazon.  I'll at least try calling Onkyo on Monday to see if they can fix it, but it won't even reset.

A real ice cream treat was to go to get a Mile High Curries ice cream.  My birthday cakes always had to come from there, until they sadly closed. 

Curries Ice Cream Parlor (http://peopletron.blogspot.com/2006/09/curries-ice-cream-parlor.html) is highlighted in this article discussing where Lana Turner was discovered.

Keith just walked in and said he wasn't a fan of Curries, this from a man who will eat almost any ice cream-lol.  It is their ice cream cakes I truly loved.  Keith remembers going to Carnation on Wilshire Blvd.  He loved the great deal at Sav-On, only 5-cents a cone.  To me the cones were not worth the 5-cents.

I'm getting very sentimental; I wept through a great deal of TAKING WODSTOCK, probably weeping more for the past 40 years and the friends I haven't seen since August 1969, but I absolutely loved the film. It's very funny, moving and quite nostaslgic. Like MILK, I couldn't tell where the authentic footage ended and the new  began, and I thought, like MILK, the period was captured really well, especially a quiet rural community in the Catskills. My friend Matthew was in Buffalo in August 1969 and he remembers the clogged highways. I was in Middletown, OH, following a season of summer theatre and waiting for my second year of grad school to begin. This is two weekends past the original Festival, August 15-18 - and I remember seeing the footage on the news.

There's a nudist theatre company - shades of my experimental theatre days in college and the first nude Off-off-Broadway show I ever saw in the summer of 1969! - and a lot of other nudity as well. There are some really wonderful performances; Jonathan Groff as one of the Woodstock Festival promoters looks like Steve Curry in the original cast of HAIR. Liev Schreiber is wonderful as a drag queen Korean War veteran, Emil Hirsch continues to impress me as a screwed up Viet Nam vet, and I loved British actor Henry Goodman as the father of the leading character played by Demetri Martin. Imelda Staunton as his mother is an interesting character. I think I'll spend tomorrow listening to music from 1968 to 1970.

Watching the ceremonies for Sen. Kennedy this afternoon, I was reminded of a story I had almost forgotten about my almost-brush with Ted Kennedy.  I mentioned a couple of weeks ago about my friend Sandy and I traveling back to New York and then to Washington D.C. for the National Collegiate Broadcasting Convention.

Our first day in Washington, we took a cab up to the Senate Office Building.  This was Spring 1969, and at the time, Washignton State had two very powerful Senators, Henry Jackson and Warren Magnusson.  Now this was at the time that anit-war protests on college campsues were going on full force; but Sandy and I were both clean-cut and we were both dressed in suits.  So, when we got to the Senate Building, we went first to Senator Magnusson's office.  We had written to both Senators six weeks before our trip asking if we could have a few moments of their time for an interview.  We were told to check when we arrived.  Senator Magnusson's staff was nice but brisk when they told us their was no way in Hell that the Senator could see us.  Senator Jackson's staff was downright rude, and actually laughed at us when we asked if we could arrange a meeting. 

As were dejectedly walked down the Hall, I noticed a nameplate on one of the doors, so I turned around and headed into the office of Senator Ted Kennedy.  The very sweet receptionist asked what she could do for us; and I explained that we were college journalists from Washington State and we wondered if there was any chance we could meet with Senator Kennedy.  The receptionist was very apologetic that the Senator was behind closed doors preparing for an important speech he was giving at the U.N. that evening (the speech was to ask the U.N. to admit Red China to their ranks).  For the next half hour the staff did everything possible to try and fit Senator Kennedy's schedule with our convention schedule.  It was was just impossible, but they tried so hard to help us, even though our own state senators couldn't have cared less.

On the last morning in Washington we went over to the visitor's gallery of the Seante.  Every important Senator (including our unavailable senators) was present because it had just been announced that morning that one of the truly loved Senators had been diagnosed with terminal cancer (don't remember who).  We, at least, got to see and hear Senator Kennedy address the Senate, as well as several other Senators speak.

Last night I developed a strange rash, it seemed as if a reaction to poison oak was suddenly appearing across my body.  On my upper arm I had what looked like new blisters or large welts.  Needless to say I was rather upset & worried I was in for several weeks of suffering again.  I piled all my clothes I wore the last couple of days, including the pajamas I had put on, into a pile to be washed today.  Luckily I had changed the sheets earlier in the day.  I took a Benadyl, rubbed a gritty poison oak oil remover all over the red areas, which also helped relieve the itching, and then took a shower and washed with Tecnu.  Then I used the strong prescription ointment I have.  I donít know what I had, or which combination of things I used worked, happily I woke up this morning completely fine. 

You can imagine how relieved I am!

They're probably on hold because of the many different writers for the show

Not a successfully show but it never been released. I wonder if the tapes have been lost?

I live in the suburbs. Where would the bear come from?

There is a picture of a rabbit and a fox and a bear. But like the little boy told his friend you're not gonna find a bear or a fox. It's just a little scary seeing the pic.

Silly me, I figured if there were photos of wild life then they really were there.  Bears have been seen in Ashland as have other large wildlife.

Everyone still walks, hike & bike the trails here, even with the sighting so why wouldn't they where you live. ;)

It probably had something to do with my father being a General and Senior Officer at Ft.

My almost 4 year old niece just left. She was supposed to sleep over tonight. But changed her mind at the last minute.

She sleeps over most weekends and usually i don't mind either way if she stays or not. But this time she had decided early and i was really looking forward  to it.

My sis stayed really late (she was here till 9pm, and usually leaves at 6pm). So my niece was over tired. But a family friend came over to see the baby. And i was talking to this friend while my niece wanted to play with me. I told her we would play after her mom and sister left.

I guess it hurt her feelings that we were ignoring her. And she was overtired. I probably could have talked her into staying. But even though she's only 3 we usually let her decide on her own what she wants to do.

But for some reason i really wanted her to stay and felt really bad when she left. Maybe because i spent all night playing with the baby and was waiting for us to spend all night and morning together.

I think it would be nice if someone adopted Jane along with one of her kittens.  Are there any two who are particularly attached?  When I wanted Bogie & Craig wanted Bacall (Bryan didn't really want either & kept rolling his eyes at us-lol) we took them both, more because they were so attached we didn't want to separate them.  That is why we ended up with 4 cats.

Tomorrow I'm going to go see my friends Gretchen and Steve for the first time since he got the sad news last week that he is losing his battle with cancer. 

That's going to be a difficult visit, but enjoy visiting while he still feels good.

I agree.  Have a nice visit.

DR Jane re: your bear comments last night (you asked what kind of bears were in the forrest).

As i mentioned there is a sign near the lake with a picture of a bear.

But (and i thought i had said this) there are no bears. I would never bike there if i thought there were bears.

I live in the suburbs. Where would the bear come from?

There is a picture of a rabbit and a fox and a bear. But like the little boy told his friend you're not gonna find a bear or a fox. It's just a little scary seeing the pic. I'm sure that pic has been there for years. But if anyone had ever seen a bear i'm sure it would be in the news and people would not be biking/walking there!


Silly me, I figured if there were photos of wild life then they really were there.  Bears have been seen in Ashland as have other large wildlife.

Everyone still walks, hike & bike the trails here, even with the sighting so why wouldn't they where you live. ;)

Cause we don't do bears in the suburbs!

At first when i saw the signs i was a bit concernced. But i would be shocked to see a bear.

Maybe in remote areas people are more used to hiking among bears. But in the big cities i don't think anyone would walk/bike if they knew there could be a bear. I know i wouldn't!

I don't know exactly why but i have been starving lately. Every day.

Btw, DR Cillaliz good luck with your diet. I have been trying to eat less bad stuff. And have been exercising a lot. I really want to get so that all my smallest clothes fit. I'm sick of not being able to wear them!

Well i mean it's not technically in the city. But it's in the middle of the suburb of montreal where i live. There is a manmade lake, a really nice park and a big forrest. The lake and forrest have bike paths where people walk/bike, jog.

It's pretty cool actually cause it does not seem like this place should be in the middle of all the busy-ness.

DR Jennifer - If you've been exercising a lot, of course, you're going to be "starving". Sounds like you need to go the five to six small meals a day route, if you aren't already.  That will help control your cravings, as well as your blood sugar and energy levels.

Oh I couldn't agree more. I have always been able to make them laugh, so I have taken on fun and laughter as my contribution to the days ahead.  They gave me the holy toast cookie cutter, the mentos geyser launcher, a great new squirt gun and lots of fun and silly things.  Gretchen and her sister are huges fans of outrageouse roadside attractions and things like that.   So, while a mentos diet coke geyser show may seem over the top for some people, it's right up their alley.

Some of the major cast recordings that have not been released on CD

New Faces of 52
New Faces of 56

They're probably on hold because of the many different writers for the show

No Time For Sing

Not a successfully show but it never been released. I wonder if the tapes have been lost?

Oh What A Lovely War

Probably the same reason as above but I would think these songs are in public domain


NEW FACES OF 1952 has certainly been released. I have it on my desk as I'm typing. I think one of those British CD labels released '56 during the past year, too.

I try to eat when i'm hungry. But eating 5 or 6 meals a day isn't really practical for me.

But i guess if you consider fruit or little snacks as meals then that is sort of what i have been doing.

DR elmore - "Lost" Woodstock Photos (http://thefoxandhound.net/?p=237)

Dan Garson was a 17 year old from New Haven, Ct. In August of 1969 he made a trip to Bethel, New York to shoot some photos for his school newspaper, documenting a local music festival. The event was billed as a Music and Art Fair, the end result would make history. Dan returned with over 250 images of the four day festival. Only a few ever saw print space.

The photos sat in a suburban basement for forty years, until after Danís passing in 1991, a friend contacted the Garsonís with encouragement to release them. The pictures have finally seen the light of day as The Woodstock Experience, now available through Genesis Publications.


There's a link to the publisher's website in the article proper.

Since I offically quit WW, I would have had to pay a new registration fee to just use e-tools, so I signed up for the monthly pass again  (no registration fee, so it's actually cheaper).  Now if I want to go to a meeting I can.  I think I'm back to about what I weighed when I left, so it wouldn't be a big deal to go back

And I also liked Whitey's Ice Cream (http://www.whiteysicecream.com/) in the Quad Cities. Great shakes, and an amazing Turtle Sundae!

*There's a great story about a beauty pageant contestant who when asked:"What would you do to make the world a better place?"
Answered: "I would make sure everyone had Whitey's."
Needless to say, for the judges and members of the audience who did not know that she was referring to ice cream, well... ::)

Kitten adoption vibes!

Loved the story DR TCB.

Thoughts go with DR CILLA LIZ.  Once on the way home from Disney World, somewhere in northern Florida, we passed a sign that had a pig in a top hat and the words in lights:  Pig Cabaret 39 Miles.

There were bigger signs the closer we got....but I could not convince my brother to stop to see it.

So I have never seen a Pig Cabaret - but I am certain it is even more glorious in my imagination!

Cotton Comes To Harlem
Duck You Sucker*
Charge Of The Light Brigade
Huckleberry Finn
Tom Sawyer
How To Succeed in Business
The Happy Ending


Any chance these might be available from UA?

Several on your list were already available on CD and wouldn't have enough sales left to make it worthwhile.  A couple of others wouldn't do well enough, unfortunately.  And a couple we're thinking about.

As I was saying...

The Richmond Men's Chorus (http://richmondmenschorus.org/) and the newly formed Richmond Women's Chorus held a joint "Meet and Greet" Picnic earlier today.  Steve invited me to tag along as his guest.  It was great to see a lot of old friends and familiar faces, and it looks like they've got a good group women assembled for their inaugural season.  -And the grilled "brats" (which had, of course, been boiled in beer and onions before being grilled) were quite tasty too!

The picnic was hosted by two members of the chorus who happen to be next door neighbors.  Both houses were on the "big" side, and they both had very nice yards - about an acre in the front, and an acre and a half in the back.  I had almost forgotten just what a true backyard looks like after living in The City for the past four years. ;)

After I left the picnic, I went ahead and headed over The Healing Center in Carytown for a long overdue massage.  My regular(?) masseur, Francis, happened to be in town this weekend, and he just happened to have an opening in his schedule this evening.

When I first moved to Richmond, a friend of mine was helping a friend of his find massage clients in Richmond.  My friend played in the Richmond Symphony, and his friend, Francis, had started coming up to Richmond from Virginia Beach every now and then to work on some of the symphony members who were clients of his.  Eventually, Francis was able to fill his schedule, and started making regularly scheduled trips each month.  That was about ten years ago.  -And his hourly rate has only gone up $10 since then!

*I think the last time I had a massage from/by Francis was about 4 years ago, and I also think that that was the last time I had a massage. I'm so glad I splurged tonight.  I knew that my neck and shoulders were a bit tight lately, but... WHOA!  He wasn't able to work all the kinks out, but I can already tell my range of motion is much improved after my 90-minute session.

Well, it's usual for me. :)

Actually, since I was/am a regular, if I happened to book his last appointment of the day, he would sometimes thrown in a couple of extra minutes for free. Sometimes, I would be treated to an almost two-hour massage. -Thankfully, my apartment was only a two-block walk from his studio. If my appointment started at 7:30 or 8:00, I would sometimes just walk home, get into bed, and go right to sleep.  :)

*Since he specializes in musicians, he also knows which muscle groups to concentrate on according to the instrument you play.  When I would refer fellow musicians to him, I would always tell them not to tell him what instrument they played.  He always liked guessing - and correctly! - after his initial assessment.

And did any other DR happen to try any of the amazing flavors that were made by the now-no-longer-in-operation Jeremy's Microbatch (http://www.inc.com/magazine/20010201/21825.html)?

The Ukrop's chain in Richmond carried them when they first came out, and since they were offering the pints at 1/2-off, well... I tried each of the flavors.  There were only six.  -"Jeremy" only wanted to offer a small selection of flavors at a time.  When he introduced a new flavor, he would retire a previous flavor.

The Cinnamon Bun and Vanilla Cream Stout were my favorites.  However, the Purple Passion Pills was also quite good, if weirdly named.  It was a purple-colored vanilla ice cream with small chocolate mint candies.  Oh, and he also offered a Vanilla with Caffeine.

I'm getting very sentimental; I wept through a great deal of TAKING WODSTOCK, probably weeping more for the past 40 years and the friends I haven't seen since August 1969, but I absolutely loved the film. It's very funny, moving and quite nostaslgic. Like MILK, I couldn't tell where the authentic footage ended and the new  began, and I thought, like MILK, the period was captured really well, especially a quiet rural community in the Catskills. My friend Matthew was in Buffalo in August 1969 and he remembers the clogged highways. I was in Middletown, OH, following a season of summer theatre and waiting for my second year of grad school to begin.


And I was preparing to start Kindergarten.

And I had finished Postgraduate School, and additional missile warfare training, and was in the Gulf of Tonkin trying to beat the Commies.

Bear takes a dip in a Southern California swimming pool

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Many people like to take a dip in the pool when it's hot, and apparently bears do too.

One bear in California scaled fences, hopped over walls, and wandered into someone's backyard Wednesday.

But he only spent about one minute swimming, before exploring more of the human habitat.

Bear sitings are common in San Dimas. There have been recent reports of other swimming bears and of a bear stealing from a backyard apple tree.
In fact, some cities in the area are testing bear-resistant trash barrels.

DEAR GEORGE, CONGRATS AND HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY,  :) ;) ;D 8) :-*

I'LL BE THERE.  IT WILL BE MY VACATION NEXT YEAR.

I have relatives in Bothell (but, I'd rather stay in a hotel near the show).

On the drive home tonight, you could see the tops of the hills consumed by orange fire, and the whole sky glowed orange.   It was quite eerie to see that so clearly from far away.  We humans are very small compared to nature.

I think I'll watch Woodstock.

Night all.

Lucky vibes for all who need them, and a great Sunday.

It's official...I've been cast as "Ensemble 6" in The Brain From Planet X!  I was hoping for The Brain, but I really am just glad to be in the show. :D

I am here to tell you, you will have a blast being in the ensemble - every time we've done the show, the ensemble has the most fun.  Congrats, and I think some of us will be coming to your town to see the show.

I've been in the chorus of the three musicals that I've done with TAO (Cannibal!, Nite of the Living Dead! and Reefer Madness! the musicals).  And I've had a blast in all of them.  I know I'll have a lot of fun in this!

"6" - you'd be hard pressed to squeeze into an 16! :D
