Last night, I went to and participated in a reading of "All the World's a Grave," a "new" Shakespeare play by John Reed (he took several Shakespeare plays, mixed and matched speeches and scenes and created a relatively new story).  It was long.  I got there at about 7:00 pm.  We started reading at about 7:20 and finished at 10:40! :P The consensus was that it was too long and there was a lot that didn't need to be there and it essentially ended up being a white version of Othello.  It was disappointing to our director, Pug.  She was hoping that it would've been better...and funnier.  They're now thinking of creating their own mash-up of two (or three, at the most) stories.  We'll see what happens.  They need something cheap, and since Shakespeare's in the public domain, it can't get cheaper than that.

Last night we set up the turntable on the computer as well as the tape player. They both work so Anthony will have no problem continuing to transfer records to CDs.
Title: Re: MONDAY MADNESS
Post by: Ben on May 17, 2011, 02:16:09 AM
We also found that the tape to cd machine has exactly the type of USB cord I need for the printer. We have a shorter cable but because of the length I couldn't use it for the printer (too far away and no room to move the printer closer). Anthony now has the shorter cable and I took the longer one, downloaded the new printer driver from Brother and the laser printer is up and running. Now we just need to get a new scanner and our technology is up to date.

Good morning, all! After a night of terrible and unsettlng dreams filled with alens, a horrible death, treachery, deceit, and Audra McDonald (part of the treachery), I was wide awake at 5 am. After deliberating for 30 minutes, I got out of bed, showered and dressed. It's time for the first cup of coffee.

First thing this morning, a trek to Toyland to check on things. I will come back here and get ready for my annual physical exam at 1:15. When I return from that, I've got lots of Appalachian thinking and writing to accomplish. That's my day.

BK,

How can you talk about THE COMANCHEROS and not mention my friend, Michael Ansara, who plays the "lead" heavy.

 >:(

According to Michael, Wayne directed a good deal of that film, because Curtiz was very ill and not up to the task.  Star and driector butted heads several times.

Bruce, I specifically asked Candy about you, and she never said one word about having worked with you.  She said she thought she knew you through Janet McSweeney.  That said, she also was giggling because IMDb has her listed as having done voicework for something she said she has absolutely no memory of, and I told her she needed to ask for residuals.  :)

My voice is a bit better today.

So today is my niece's actual 2nd birthday. Her little 3 year old friend called her this morning to wish her a happy birthday. Anyway when the phone rang my niece thought it was me. So she made my sister call me at 7:30am.

So my voice is all croaky. I say happy birthday. She listens to my voice and starts to crack up. Then she says "more nana" (not sure why but she can't say auntie so that is what she has decided to call me). She wanted me to sing her happy birthday in my croaky voice so she could laugh at me! :)

So, I got to Toyland, and I was checking out all the rooms when this man walked into the office and scared the hell out of me. Turns out it was our cleaning man Arnold, who's got a set of keys, but he was there on Friday cleaning when I arrived so he wasn't there to tidy.

He said he was looking for a phone number he thought he'd left on the piano. I hadn't moved anything so, I know nothing about a misplaced phone number. He said he'd left it on the piano with his keys, but he took the keys with him when he left on Friday. Why didn't he take the phone number? Or is he coming in and out of the offiice for other reasons?

It has me puzzled and a bit freaked.

Jerry Lewis' announcement that he will only be on hand to sing You'll Never Walk Alone this year reminds me of one of my favorite stories from Betsy's news anchoring career.

She worked at two huge Chicago stations that were so big the anchors didn't write their own copy.  She got handed copy at the last second one day as the Jerry Lewis Telethon was shutting down for the year, and the news writer had finished the story with this classic line:  Jerry Lewis closed the telethon with an emotional rendition of You'll Never Walk Again.

"Love Story" was 1970 and "Red Sky,... was 1971.

Maybe they re-released both films (in 1972?) as a double bill....hoping to capitalize on the popularity of one in order to recoup costs of the other.  They're not similar types of films...one a coming-of-age and one a love story between a privileged law student and a poor music student).

I'm not yet back in the swing of getting up to go to work. It's hard at this hour of the morning to keep both eyes open.

I need to start thinking about that "swing" too in order to get ready for Oklahoma! rehearsals down in DC. Rehearsals will be starting at 10:00am, which means I'll have to be up by 7:30am in order to make sure I'm able to make it from Fairfax to southwest DC in time. I'm actually thinking of just getting up earlier in order to head into work with my brother - there's a Metro stop right at his office building - and using the extra time before rehearsals for some reading, practicing and preparation. Thankfully, since this is a remount, the rehearsal period will only be two and a half weeks. -Then I won't have to worry about showing up at the theatre until show time.

And, yes, it's another rainy, drizzly, gray, it's-raining-again day here in New York City. There were a couple of big claps of thunder earlier this morning that woke me up... And then I went back to bed for a bit.

We have a 20% chance of rain tomorrow. This is VERY unusual for May. We usually don't get rain in May or June -- none until the monsoon comes, which the last couple of years has been August. We are all hoping for some rain.

One of my co-workers has been on a rampage today -- he's been trying to create a user ID with a federal agency and has hit brick walls all day.   I'm fairly certain it's his fault.  He called for my help and then acted like he didn't like anything I was doing to try helping him.  So, I got up and returned to my desk.  End of story.

He now has his door closed but the little fits he has thrown throughout the day has most of us certain he's headed for a stroke.

The Tenth Grecian Urn is over to the Library where Miss Marian has it behind a glass door.   You can only see one side of it, and the town's ladies are certain there must be something unsightly on the back as Miss Marian won't let anyone inspect it.

I went back to pick up the Xeroxing, even gave them an extra fifteen minutes.  The guy who usually takes care of me was there and said he hadn't even started it yet.  I explained to him that the idiot who took the stuff told me an hour - then when I came back an hour later he told me they needed another thirty minutes.  So, I had to come back again.  Turns out the idiot didn't even tell the guy about it or me or when I was coming to get it!  My guy did it while I waited and then didn't charge me for the order, which was very nice of him.  I think he'll probably be having some words with the idiot.

Hi everyone!!!  I have decided to re-join the human race which is HHW.

On Sunday, I moved into my new apartment in  Foster City, CA.  and a new beginning has begun.

So, now that I'm settled and have my computer much more accessible, so I'll be able to check in more and join in on the laughter and merriment that is HHW.

The events of the last 2 months will be in the memoirs, or in a cabaret act if bk is interested in directing it!!

It's so lovely to be back.  :)

OK, so I have a mattress and box spring to get rid of.  In good shape practically new....well the cats snagged it a bit over the winter.  Anyway, there was an article on the front page of the paper from three people looking for donations of new and slightly used mattresses to donate to people who don't have beds.  SO....I called yesterday, I emailed yesterday, I called today, I emailed today. Nothing.  No answer. NADA.  It irritates me.  Don't get a cover story one day soliciting donations and then not respond when someone tries to donate.

Last night, I went to and participated in a reading of "All the World's a Grave," a "new" Shakespeare play by John Reed (he took several Shakespeare plays, mixed and matched speeches and scenes and created a relatively new story).  It was long.  I got there at about 7:00 pm.  We started reading at about 7:20 and finished at 10:40! :P The consensus was that it was too long and there was a lot that didn't need to be there and it essentially ended up being a white version of Othello.  It was disappointing to our director, Pug.  She was hoping that it would've been better...and funnier.  They're now thinking of creating their own mash-up of two (or three, at the most) stories.  We'll see what happens.  They need something cheap, and since Shakespeare's in the public domain, it can't get cheaper than that.


George, be sure and tell Pug that I am working on a musical version of MERCHANT OF VENICE using the music of The Beatles.

So, I got to Toyland, and I was checking out all the rooms when this man walked into the office and scared the hell out of me. Turns out it was our cleaning man Arnold, who's got a set of keys, but he was there on Friday cleaning when I arrived so he wasn't there to tidy.

He said he was looking for a phone number he thought he'd left on the piano. I hadn't moved anything so, I know nothing about a misplaced phone number. He said he'd left it on the piano with his keys, but he took the keys with him when he left on Friday. Why didn't he take the phone number? Or is he coming in and out of the offiice for other reasons?

It has me puzzled and a bit freaked.



My vote is "other reasons."

Jerry Lewis' announcement that he will only be on hand to sing You'll Never Walk Alone this year reminds me of one of my favorite stories from Betsy's news anchoring career.

She worked at two huge Chicago stations that were so big the anchors didn't write their own copy.  She got handed copy at the last second one day as the Jerry Lewis Telethon was shutting down for the year, and the news writer had finished the story with this classic line:  Jerry Lewis closed the telethon with an emotional rendition of You'll Never Walk Again.

But now, I must go to bed.  I'm taking my car in for its annual service.  I use my income tax refund to pay for it.  Hopefully, it won't cost more than what I have left. ::)

I've been dropped off at work and the estimate for the servicing (this year) is less than half of what it usually has been!  I'm very happy now! :D

Well...I got a call and it's not going to be half of what it usually has been. :P They found a couple of leaks and it'll cost more than the original estimate, but still a little less than previous years' costs.  It needs to be done BUT they need it overnight, so I'll walk home tonight and will walk to work tomorrow (good thing I live so close to work).  Which means that it's time for me to walk home now.

Until later!

No one in AZ cares, either.

In fact, I'd wager that no one in the USA cares, really.

I never would have thought of adding mint to zucchini. I have mint. Lots of mint.

I think I need to order 5 books.  Just need to find the box amongst all the boxes in the other room, which I'm trying to make into a sitting / library room.   :)

Family values types would care, except that he's in their party. So is Newt Gingrich, another with a similar problem.

So, I got to Toyland, and I was checking out all the rooms when this man walked into the office and scared the hell out of me. Turns out it was our cleaning man Arnold, who's got a set of keys, but he was there on Friday cleaning when I arrived so he wasn't there to tidy.

He said he was looking for a phone number he thought he'd left on the piano. I hadn't moved anything so, I know nothing about a misplaced phone number. He said he'd left it on the piano with his keys, but he took the keys with him when he left on Friday. Why didn't he take the phone number? Or is he coming in and out of the offiice for other reasons?

It has me puzzled and a bit freaked.



My vote is "other reasons."

It is possible he did not expect anyone to be there and thought he might use the copy machine or telephone

I am a terrible gardener. But I picked two zucchinis today. I ate one for dinner.

Watched a motion picture on Blu and Ray and will now go get something sweet to eat, since I only had a sandwich and fries, and there weren't that many of the latter.  It's been a little too chilly to jog.

I love them sliced thin with a drizzle of exceptionally good olive oil on them and maybe some sun-dried tomatoes.  Simple but the peak of natural flavors.

You wanna know what I keep hearing in my head? The Trololololo Song. It's too catchy.

Raw. I love raw food. Fresher, more alive flavors.

Woo Hoo! Heard from Mattress girl.  They would love to pick up my mattress.  The timing is so funny.  Last week SunDee and Adam decided they don't want to try to get the extra bed I have and take it all the way to Wisconsin and this week the front page of the paper has thing.
