In a half hour or so my sister Paula and I will be on our way to bank....

I am waiting for the gentleman at the Citizen's Bank to ask me why I decided to put the estate account at the Huntington Bank....if he does, I have my story - reported here on HHW a few months ago - about the certified check that I was accused of printing up in my basement and trying to pass at the good old CB.

Interesting to read MR BK's take on Being the Ricardos.....I want to see it.....but I really don't need the folks dragged into the 2020's....but I guess if you don't trust the audience to know anything - or you don't know anything yourself.....well....there you are.

I picked up one (1) plain bagel yesterday at the store and am eating it now, toasted, with cream cheese. I haven't had one in a few weeks, and it's so delicious I wish I'd picked up at least one more, if not several more. Damn it to HELL.

So, last night, for my very first time, I watched Nightmare Alley. The original, not the new Guillermo del Toro version.

WOW. It's a trip, for sure. I went in knowing nothing about the story, only the setting, and my jaw was on the floor half the time at the content they managed to get in there or allude to in 1947. There's apparently even more that they didn't. Amazing, really. I will revisit it soon to listen to the commentary track. And I'll definitely go to the new one at some point to see del Toro's take on it.

I did not succumb to HHW peer pressure this morning.  Before I ever logged on, I had a cup of coffee and an apple fritter.  YUM!

And then I had another cup of coffee while I surfed.

Wednesday evening greetings!  Guess what I found in our newly waterproofed basement when I went down to do laundry this morning - yep, water.  We can’t tell where it’s coming from and the chick who answered the phone at the company says they can be here Tuesday.  We’re on a cancellation list, but it’s impeding my Christmas decorating, which is already slowed down because Richard can’t help.

At least I was able to do the laundry…

Congrats on the new car order, DR George. But I, too, am shocked to hear it's going to take five months to get it. That must be due to the times we live in, with shortages on car parts. But still.

I also have to wonder why - when it's a custom order anyway - they couldn't at least offer you some cherce in seat coverings. But that is the way of corporations.


I know, right??  What IS the big deal with color options...or the lack thereof??  But fortunately, it'll only be four months, not five. ;)

I do love Subarus now, and that's where I'll go when it's time to buy new again.

Subarus are especially popular in northern climes, with their all wheel drive. I see scores of them every time I'm out. I hear you can go to southern states and see virtually none at all.

The car I had in the '90s just before I got my Escort was a Subaru Justy with a button on the stick shift that I could push to get four-wheel drive anytime I needed it.  That was a cool feature.

DR George - congratulations on the new car!

Thanks, Singdaw!  I'll definitely post pictures when I get it...some time next year.

SOME TIME NEXT YEAR - sounds like the noncommittal version of SAME TIME NEXT YEAR

Thank you, Sing. Yes, I slept well, and am doing better today. However, the to-do list calls. I postponed one errand and did the laundry instead. I'm hoping for a little staycation before the end of the year.

When the roofers got started, they discovered that they could make the repairs without having to move the AC unit off the roof. So they didn't need the crane or the AC people at all. The repair took only two hours.

The mess in the tarp -- it's the stuff that fell inside while they were removing the old shingles and damaged wood. It's up in the tarp that is stapled to the ceiling. There is no mess in the house. The drywall guys will take care of it when the ceiling is repaired. Hopefully soon!

There are times when I wish this here site had a "like" button.

We used to have the Karma button.  Maybe that can be used without the negative karma option.

That wasn't a nice option.

George, either black or dark grey should be pretty with the blue exterior.

Thanks, Jane.  I did not want a black car, but black cloth on the seats didn't look bad on the car I drove yesterday.

Nice.  Maybe once you have the car you will be very happy with the black.

I watched the first twenty-something minutes of The Harder They Fall, a smart-ass, meta, bit of twaddle that reviewers love because their so scared to criticize it. Some have, and few of its reviews are outright raves. But, I'll have more to say in the notes.

I have a vague memory that I'd heard that it was suggested to him, but he thought that it had to be an opera, and he wasn't interested in writing an opera.  But I do remember hearing/reading about Angela being suggested as Norma.  I would've loved to see/hear that!
Title: Re: THE BIRTHDAY BOY'S BIRTHDAY
Post by: bk on December 09, 2021, 12:07:46 AM
TCB, the answer, as far as I know, was that it was talked about - don't know about Lansbury - but when I asked him directly if he'd written anything the answer was not a note.
