I have shared my favorite recipe - well my only recipe - here before, but I shall do so again.

Take one slice of white bread
Add one layer of Hellmann's mayonnaise
Add two slices of Spam
Top with another slice white bread.
Cut into two pieces if desired.
Serve on saucer with potato chips.

Well we got the lights all set, but I only did a few cues.....Mr Tim is going to finish them up tomorrow when I bring him my paper, which he already has, but he must have forgotten, so I will give him another copy.

BUT tragedy struck BLITHE SPIRIT last night - yes TRAGEDY.

When Charles first sees his wife Elvira as a ghost, he drops the glass of whiskey he just poured for himself.  Fine and dandy except last night, Charles had poured himself a martini....I specifically purchased HEAVY whiskey glasses so it would survive the fall.....not so the lovely GOLD-RIMMED martini glasses....CRASH!!!!   Broken.....and I just had enough of the martini glasses with gold rims to match the number of martinis he makes....and now I am short one.

It is a tragedy.....but the play will go on....I guess.

I wasn't too thrilled with "Bird Cage," either. But in a world where clips become more famous than the movie in which they're from, I admit I love the scene of Robin Williams doing the choreographers. And they use it practically every time the movie is mentioned.

I think part of the problem was that the moviemakers somehow felt they had to deliver a message to middle America in with all the mayhem. I wonder if that were their original intent or something the studio wanted.

For those who are still reading "Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," let me explain further: I read the last 300 pages in a day, rarely stopping to put the book down and loved most every minute, but I will say I had a few problems, which I won't go into yet because I don't care for all the spoiler alerts. Let's just say, if the author had lived, there might have been a few changes made.

As for the first book, I loved it once I finished it, but I stopped about a third of the way through, took a few months' off and then picked it up again. The beginning was a bit slow going, but I felt the ending more than made up for it.

TOD: I could fill up pages with favorite recipes, but I'll limit myself to something I make often, is quite easy and feeds my love of celery. It's an Italian celery salad. Chop up some celery. Grate some Parmesan cheese over the top, to taste. Add EVOO and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Salt, to taste. Stir. Let it set for about 10 minutes. Stir again and serve.

Good morning, all! I got a nice email from my beloved sister-in-law and chef par excellence JoAnn this morning, and - I've wrongly  been maligning Randy all weekend - she attached an email from Randy notifying one of the developers around the new hospital that the house and garage on the property had been torn down and were they interested in the land. The response was maybe. In the future. Land looks good, though.

So, the waiting game continues.  I wait for the property to move, I wait for checks in the post, I wait for something good to happen.

And while I wait, life does go on: I have to be at Toyland around noon for edits with Mr Skip Kennon at 1. This morning I have some writing on the notes and general tidying up of the apartment. I really want to stay indoors all day, but my self-imposed exile is over.

TOD:

Garlic Dip

16 oz Philadelphia brand Cream Cheese, room temperature (Neufchatel is okay)
4 bulbs of garlic

Peel garlic and pulverize in a food processor until it's a fine mash.

In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese until light and fluffy. 

Gradually add garlic mash until it is all well blended.

Separate mixture into two serving bowls.  Garnish with parsley flakes.  Cover and chill.

Serve with chips and pretzels.  Have an amusing story handy about how you didn't realize there was a difference between a bulb and a clove.

I was disappointed with THE BIRD CAGE.  With those particular people behind and in front of the camera, I was expecting something that was sharper and wittier than how it turned out.  But a lot of it is funny.  I especially liked Nathan Lane's "Mother" being made up to look like Barbara Bush.

It is a tragedy.....but the play will go on....I guess.

The tragedy is having broken glass on stage where an actor might get hurt (or worse, an audience member, if glass flies off the stage), not not having enough glasses.  One can buy cheap glasses anywhere...but, if there is a chance of breaking them, actors shouldn't be deliberately breaking real glasses onstage.  I recently saw a production of TRUE WEST, where an actor took great delight (encouraged by his director) in beating Hell out of a typewriter...with pieces flying all over and off stage.  Lawsuit waiting to happen.  Safety first!

TOD - Margaret's Chicken reminds me of something I used to make quite often:

Parmesan Chicken

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 T. melted margarine

1/2 C. finely grated parmesan cheese

1/4 C. dry bread crumbs

1 t. each dried oregano leaves and parsley flakes

1/4 t. each paprika, salt, and black pepper

Heat oven to 400o F.  Spray 15x10x1-inch dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Dip chicken in margarine; coat with combined remaining ingredients. Place in prepared pan.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until tender.

I haven't made this in a long time, but will this week.  Thanks for the reminder, BK!

I had no idea Corey Allen was still alive.  I never mentioned in the book the two episodes of This Is The Life I did, both of which he directed.  I didn't mention them because I really had no memory of them other than that I did them - well, there was a little funny story about finally seeing the legendary "Roll 'em, Sholem" Lee Sholem at work - Mr. Sholem directed hundreds upon hundreds of low-budget TV shows - like This is the Life, most of them shot in two or three days.  This is the Life shot in two-and-a-half days.  On the half-day, the show finishing would wrap at noon, and the new show would begin shooting shortly thereafter.  So, I arrived on the set and got to see Mr. Sholem wrapping the final two shots of his show and I got to hear him say his immortal line, "Cut. Print. Over there."

Looks like we aren't going to paint Santana on the water tower.  The guy in charge said he had to clear the design with Santana.  Since the guy in charge didn't get the design from Paul until yesterday and the festival is Saturday, Paul decided to do the Santana on a huge canvas and hang it on the outside of a friend's house across the street from the park.  He has a friend who will paint something else on the space he was going to use on the water tower.  We are going to touch up all the stuff from past years and I can still help Mark with his part, but it won't be the same.

I'm also so disgusted with HWHC not responding to things like the 45 pages of guidelines I sent to him and am creating to save his butt, or my resignation from his group - wouldn't you think the chair of a board would respond to a resignation letter?  I received a response from 2 other board members.  HWHC claims his hard drive crashed, but he has posted on FB to others. So I left a hard copy of both in his office today.  Still no response.  I am really glad I left that group, but I am very po'd that he isn't being very professional about the work I'm trying to get feedback on. 

OTOH I've taken the same work to the Commission I was just appointed to.  The project would go through them eventually. Anyway, I get the impression the chair there doesn't like the way I did it.  I was irritated for about a minute then I realize that  it's feedback and he knows what it needs to look like.  I decided I'd rather start over and maybe get some help from some other people than blindly try to make my way through a very big project without any guidance.

Post by: Cillaliz on June 29, 2010, 12:14:35 PM
Of course the new chair already told me he likes the part that I worked the hardest on, so I really think it will just be revisions, and that's fine and dandy.  Hey, I'd gladly start from scratch if need be.   What I've completed could easily be transformed into something else so it wouldn't go to waste
Title: Re: THE CONTENTED COW
Post by: Cillaliz on June 29, 2010, 12:16:49 PM
But that still doesn't excuse HWHC not responding to work he assigned to me or to my resignation.  I got so tired of waiting for a response I texted and said he was the reason I quit the group....sort of true but not really, he didn't answer that either.   JERK!!! no he's a jerkasaurus rex!

The good thing is, once I get this project done for his group, I won't have any more direct involvement on projects with him and can totally move on....

For those who are still reading "Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," let me explain further: I read the last 300 pages in a day, rarely stopping to put the book down and loved most every minute, but I will say I had a few problems, which I won't go into yet because I don't care for all the spoiler alerts. Let's just say, if the author had lived, there might have been a few changes made.

As for the first book, I loved it once I finished it, but I stopped about a third of the way through, took a few months' off and then picked it up again. The beginning was a bit slow going, but I felt the ending more than made up for it.


I almost finished it last night.  It was 2:30 and i just couldn't stay awake any longer, but I'm down to about a chapter and a half.  I really did slog through the beginning of this book and I think most of it could have been eliminated, just my two cents.  The book really did pick up and got very good.   I don't know if I'll like the end yet, because I'm not there

I liked the book but thought the end was dragged out a bit.

Thanks Laura.  When I was little my mom used to sing "I'm Gonna Wash that Man Right Out of My Hair"  I sang it before I had any idea how a man could get in your hair.  He finally said he would give me his comments on the work I did.  That's all I want. I need his feedback because he chairs 2 of the 3 groups that have to approve the goofy things.   As soon as this project is over, there will be no need to work with him again

This afternoon I came home and watered the yard by hand -and a hose, of course  (as opposed to using a sprinkler).    It took over an hour and was very relaxing.  They sprayed the yard for bugs, grubs and fertilized this morning so I had to water it today.  It was a nice chore to do in the sun and warm but not hot temps

Well we got the lights all set, but I only did a few cues.....Mr Tim is going to finish them up tomorrow when I bring him my paper, which he already has, but he must have forgotten, so I will give him another copy.

BUT tragedy struck BLITHE SPIRIT last night - yes TRAGEDY.

When Charles first sees his wife Elvira as a ghost, he drops the glass of whiskey he just poured for himself.  Fine and dandy except last night, Charles had poured himself a martini....I specifically purchased HEAVY whiskey glasses so it would survive the fall.....not so the lovely GOLD-RIMMED martini glasses....CRASH!!!!   Broken.....and I just had enough of the martini glasses with gold rims to match the number of martinis he makes....and now I am short one.

It is a tragedy.....but the play will go on....I guess.

My suggestion:  Paper cups or a new Charles!

Just had a nice talk with my sister in Virginia. it's been too long. My weird work hours and her weird work hours make it hard to stay in touch for more than an e-mail. Things shouldn't have to be so difficult.

OK, I'm about to call it a night.  I have an early doctor's appointment tomorrow for blood work, so no morning coffee for me.  Probably won't try to log on until after that ordeal - 'night!

I had a wonderfully wonderful dinner meeting with our very own Miss Alet Taylor, who is going to be one of only two regulars in each of the Kritzerland at the Gardenia shows - she can do it all and is perfect, and has been on the albums.  I'm in the midst of choosing the other regular, a male.  Then the other four singers will all be guests.

May I suggest the lovely Jason Graae?

Has anyone tried to order anything from Amazon.com today and failed? I can't tell if it's my computer, Con Edison, or something global!

It must've been global...both a co-worker and I noticed that there were problems, too.

I prefer (in order):

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES - The musical
THE BIRDCAGE - film
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES - The original film

Ditto (in order).

Good morning, all! I got a nice email from my beloved sister-in-law and chef par excellence JoAnn this morning, and - I've wrongly  been maligning Randy all weekend - she attached an email from Randy notifying one of the developers around the new hospital that the house and garage on the property had been torn down and were they interested in the land. The response was maybe. In the future. Land looks good, though.

So, the waiting game continues.  I wait for the property to move, I wait for checks in the post, I wait for something good to happen.

~~~Good-Luck-with-the-Property Vibes for DR Elmore!!~~~

He made it to the next round.
