Less is more. I rarely like a perfume and I never wear a cologne or aftershave. Headache producing products. I do not like to go anywhere near a perfume counter in a department store. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I think Noel Coward wrote some lines about seedy chorus boy and their colognes.

Good morning, DRTomovoz!  Yes, but you're getting younger as I, like a cheese, get older and rottener.

Beginning today, through next Wed., I will be very E&T.  I will drop in occasionally from Ohio, if I can log onto the site at the public library (and the phone situation, since my Father's crazy war with Verizon, is even worse!).

Good Travel Vibes to our dear Larry. Sorry I missed the birthday bash last night. It's hard when you're married and have a beautiful husband.

I'm alone at 7:16am.

I rarely use cologne.

We use plain, old-fashioned Colgate.

I use the tan Listerine and Anthony uses the blue store brand. He says it's easier to use. I say WUSSBURGER!

On that note (C#) I will leave for a while.

May I suggest that you go to www.dafont.com (http://www.dafont.com). It is a wonderful website with hundreds (and maybe thousands) of free downloadable fonts.

Since it is a mystery type of a play there is a font called A Theme For Murder

But there are many other fonts to take a look at.

Mitchum deodorant

Head and Shoulders (or the Target brand)

Toothpaste: whatever is on sale.

Cologne: Used to love Boss.

Over that last several years I have become increasingly allergic to a lot of perfumes and scents used in soaps, etc. so I have to avoid scented products....sadly, Irish Spring used to be my favorite soap.

Most cosmetics and toiletries, with their emphasis on clashing perfumes, make me want to barf.

Generally, I stick to name brand toothpastes like Crest or AquaFresh.  And I like Irish Spring as a shower soap.

So I guess I don't have an ooh-and-ahh de toilette.

Good morning!  I had to leave quickly last night, because the thunderstorm that JRand mentioned got here very quickly and it was awful!

TOD - Irish Spring, Crest Sensitive, Secret Solid Unscented, Dove Volumizing Hair Gel, Finesse Unscented Extra-hold Hairspray.  I don't wear perfume often, but I like White Linen and Chanel #5 (not at the same time, of course!) when I do.
Title: Re:THE ROUSING NOTES

We also use Suave Naturals Shampoo, although we use it right now because we got a bunch of bottles for free. When we were volunteering last year with Broadway Cares there were many bottles of shampoo and personal care products. The powers that be said to take them.

We also use Suave Cucumber Melon hand lotion and Barbasol shaving cream.

Question for NYC DRs:  Is anyone familiar with the Mint Theater Company on 43rd St?  Specifically, I just became aware of their about-to-open production of Dawn Powell's Walking Down Broadway and I'm thinking about trying to see it on Oct. 4.  Dawn Powell is an Ohio-born author for whom I've recently developed a fascination.

Here' s the website for the theater company:

Toiletry check:

Re toothpaste:  Skip came back from a trip having discovered orange-flavored Crest toothpaste.  It was great-tasting, even made brushing something to look forward to.  But at least on my heavy-tartar-generating teeth, I started noticing brown patches on my teeth after a few weeks.  I assume the toothpaste was not CAUSING the brown patches, it just wasn't countering the effect of any foods or drink that were staining my teeth.  I went back to Crest whitening toothpaste about a week ago - brushing is no longer fun (as it was with the orange toothpaste), but the brown patches have started to fade.

I love the original Listerine; my dentist recommends it, and I feel as if the unpleasantness is doing something for me, because since I started using it, the hygienist has been saying my teeth are easier to clean.

I use Colgate toothpaste. Irish Spring bar soap. Nomad shower gel (from Crabtree & Evelyn) when I want to be fancy. Or when I can afford it. I have 14,000 half-empty bottles of shampoo and/or conditioner. Right now I'm using Fructis. I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub to exfoliate and The Body Shop's men's facial wash. I have to keep myself looking good for when I make my return to the stage. ;)

I have several colognes, too - Burberry, Nomad (yes, like the shower gel), Very Sexy for Him by Vickie's Secret, and a few others I can't remember right now, but I only do a couple of squirts. Too much of a good thing is vomitous.
Title: Re:THE ROUSING NOTES
Post by: Dan (the Man) on September 20, 2005, 07:53:07 AM
TOD:

Shampoo:  I generally buy the cheap Suave stuff, mostly because I like the variety of scents they use--Citrus, Peach, Mango, Waterfalls (I don't know if that's what a waterfall is supposed to smell like, I do like it.)

Soap:  DR MBarnum's favorite--Irish Spring.  Also use glycerin soap bought from The Body Shop for my face

Toothpaste:  I've never used anything else in my life but Crest.

Deodorant:  Pretty much stick to Degree.  Again, I like their scents.

Cologne:  For the most part, colognes don't last on me at all.  I'll put some on and an hour or so later the scent is gone.  One exception is Grey Flannel, which does manage to linger on me for hours on end (and I get complimented on it a lot, too!)

At a yard sale years ago, I bought a sealed bottle of Hai-Karate, which I've been keeping on my dresser just for display.  Late last year, a friend crack it open and splashed some on.  We both discovered that there is validity to the suggestion that you store colognes out of direct light.  Phew!

All in all, though, I'm not what you could call a metrosexual.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Ginny, Mint Theatre is an excellent company. I would recommend seeing the show. I haven't seen it yet. They focus on little known and forgotten work from the early part of the century. They are in a hole in the wall space on 43rd Street on the 5th floor of a non-theatre building, just west of 8th Avenue (across the street from a Ben and Jerry's, yummm!).

Right now I'm using Fructis.

DR Jason, I have a half used bottle of Fructis in my hallway closet.  I bought it primarily for the neat looking radio/flashlight that came free with purchase.

I used the shampoo and I have to admit that it did make my hair feel stronger and more managable (I have extremely fine hair.)  But in warmer weather, using the shampoo makes me feel like I have some kind of plastic coating on my head.

cologne - only use it on very special occasions: CK One.

I have 14,000 half-empty bottles of shampoo and/or conditioner.


Huzzah!  I'm not the only one who suffers from this condition.  Although a larger percentage of my half-empty bottles are lotion.  I'm on a never-ending quest for The Perfect Lotion, that combines the right scent and effect on my skin.  The search continues.

Shampoo/Conditioner - I can generally use whatever shampoo is within reach, or on sale, but conditioner HAS to be Pantene Smooth and Sleek, or my hair just doesn't feel right.  I've got pretty long hair, as anyone who's met me will atest to, and I'm rather picky about keeping it clean.  

Body Wash - Whatever's on sale.  I haven't yet found one that I love enough to keep buying it

Toothpaste - Colgate Total + Whitening

Perfume - I have a body spray from Bath/Bodyworks that I LOVE, but I only use it occasionally because it's out of stock. It's called Winter Apple.  I sometimes used to wear Journey, by Mary Kay, but I lost tbe bottle now.  I don't usually do a lot with scents.  I work with infants, who are sensitive to them, and as choral singer, I've just learned it's best to avoid them.

Very disappointed to read that THE COMEBACK, Lisa Kudrow's comedy series on HBO is not going to have a second season.

I think it's a boneheaded move on HBO's part as the show was starting to get richer in character and much funnier in its last two or three episodes. It had really found its niche, but now, it's over. Not a happy person about this.

Oh..I disagree!! I think "The Color Purple" is one of the most inspiring stories of triumph over seemingingly endless setbacks, so it's hard for me to call it a sad story. There are sad occurances, to be sure, but I find it to be one of the most satisfying stories around.

I overheard a reading of the musical at Chelsea Studios about a year and a half ago. It sounded fabulous. There are a couple of songs available to download on the show's website, which I believe you can also access through Playbill.com.

Oh...more on the TOD:

Cepacol mouth rinse. It burns and I love it. Sure deodorant, fresh scent. It's the only thing that keeps me dry. J. Crew pomade for my hair. Got2B Sea Salt Scrub to exfoliate everything but my face. Barbasol shaving cream. Neutrogena facial moisturizer. L'Oreal self-tanning lotion for auditions, just to add a touch of color to my face. (OK, OK...I'm high maintenance!)

DR Ann: Crabtree & Evelyn has a WONDERFUL set of hand lotions that I think is brilliant and comes in a variety of scents. It's a two-part set: The first part is an exfoliant moisturizer that is genius and you follow that up with the regular moisturizer that's wonderful, too (and not too greasy). The set is called the 60-Second Fix and costs about $20. It's faboo...you should try it!

I watched MEDIUM last night.  It was okay.  It was interesting as usual to see how her dreams relate to what is really happening.  

But one thing I found odd (and perhaps this just happened in Canada when it was shown at 9pm) was they showed the preview for next week's show at about 9:48pm.  Then they went to commercial break, and went back to finish the last 6 or 7 minutes.

The reason I found this interesting was because the show was not coming to any resolution, and I just assumed it would continue next week.  But the preview showed a totally new topic.  And then sure enough they concluded last night's episode quite quickly (for me at least).

I hope upcoming shows will be more riveting. Last season I could not wait to see what was going to happen next.

Good Morning!

At least I hope it's morning... ???

I kind of lazed in bed this morning just listening to the radio, WQXR ("The radio station of the New York Times").  After an hour or so, I noticed that the announcer's voice I'm used to hearing at that time of day was not the usual annnouncer.  Hmm... "OK, someone must be on vacation and they changed shifts."  Well..

When I finally put my feet on the floor, my clock radio said it was 9:52.  Then I stepped out into the living room, and my roommate was watching "Ellen".  Hmm.. "Is Ellen on an hour earlier today?"  Hmm...  Well...  It actually turned out to be 10:52.  "What happened?"

I really still am a bit puzzled.  To reset the clock on my clock-radio requires moving a switch this way, and holding two buttons down to adjust the hour and minute settings.  I even began to wonder if it was already Daylight Savings Time - "fall back".

???

Thankfully, I have no appointments this morning, but still...

DR Jason, Judge Turpin will be glad you still pomade your hari!

Yesterday was a very long, interesting and expensive day!!!!   The DP and I began our day by purchasing a new bed.  The one we had broke the other morning - only because it's a cheap piece of crap, not for all the other reasons some of you may be thinking - anyhow, it's worse than buying a used car.  The first place we went to was just horrible.  The salesman went on and on and on, and BOY did he memorize his script, very impersonal.  We ended up at the competitors store, which he told us not to bother with, and purchased a lovely floor model for 50% off the asking price.  Good times!

We headed up to the Castro in SF.  Our plan was to meet up with our pal Scott, and see a double feature at the Castro Theatre "Xanadu" and "The Wiz"  - more about that in a minute

While in the Castro, I always try and go to Medium Rare records and pick up some CD's I don't already have.  I ended up with "Miss Liberty", bk's "Shakepeare on Broadway". "The Musicality of Stouse" and "Musicals from the Land of Oz" - they're loading onto the iPod as I type!  I also ended up purchasing a pair of Skechers, which are nice enough to wear to work and comfy to walk in.  

After dinner, we got our tickets for the movie, but decided to skip "The Wiz" as it was going to be too late when it was over.  But the "Xanadu" experience was HY-sterical.  A theatre full of queens (sorry if that offends anyone) and "Xanadu" - what more could you ask for.  There was thunderous applause after the musical numbers, laughter where I never thought there could be laughter, and lots of singing along!  Way too much fun :)

Hi all,  I decided that I really do want to see Sweeney Todd while I'm in NYC and since there is a Monday night performance, I got a ticket.  I'm running a slight risk since I don't fly in until late afternoon, but nothing ventured nothing gained. I'll still try to make dinner that night, but unfortunately that means I'll miss all the fun and laughs at Splash!

shampoo - herbal essence - the orange colored one - I think it has marigold in it or something
body wash - bath and body - I can't remember the scent, but I really like it - I'll check when I get home. White gardenia and something, I think.
perfume - I think it's called Intuition.
Face soap lotion..Estee Lauder or Clinique  
deoderant - mitchum for women - or whatever they call it.

Well, I tried to post this a few minutes ago, but the internet connection blipped off again for a bit, so...

Bar Soap - Dial Oatmeal and Lavender.  I used to use Lever2000 Anti-Bacterial almost exclusively, but "something" happened, and it started to dry my skin out.  ??? After some trial and error, I came across the newish Dial variety, and... Voila!

Liquid Soap - Dial Complete.  I keep a bottle in the bathroom and one by the kitchen sink.

Shampoo - I go through phases - and price points: Aveda Scalp Benefits, Suave Daily Clarifying, Selsun Blue.

"Product" - I used to use gel, mousse, pomade, etc., on a semi-regularly basis years ago, but once I started keeping and cutting my hair really short, I realized that all that stuff was just not needed or necessary.  My hair stands up straight all on it's own.  One of my former barbers/stylists, used to apply some pomade after cutting my hair.  It was OK, however, after walking around for a few hours, I would start noticing all the dust, pollen, and other stuff in the air that was sticking to my hair.   So... no more pomade.

Colognes - I used to buy some "nice" stuff every now and then, but I used it so infrequently, that I gave up making the initial investment.  I mean it would take me years(!) to notice a change in the level of the cologne in the bottle.  And as DR Ann pointed out, wearing scents in close-quartered artistic environments can be problematic.   However, sometimes I will walk through a single pump of Aveda's Pure Mist - or whatever they call their base scent.

Good Morning!

At least I hope it's morning... ???

I kind of lazed in bed this morning just listening to the radio, WQXR ("The radio station of the New York Times").  After an hour or so, I noticed that the announcer's voice I'm used to hearing at that time of day was not the usual annnouncer.  Hmm... "OK, someone must be on vacation and they changed shifts."  Well..

When I finally put my feet on the floor, my clock radio said it was 9:52.  Then I stepped out into the living room, and my roommate was watching "Ellen".  Hmm.. "Is Ellen on an hour earlier today?"  Hmm...  Well...  It actually turned out to be 10:52.  "What happened?"

I really still am a bit puzzled.  To reset the clock on my clock-radio requires moving a switch this way, and holding two buttons down to adjust the hour and minute settings.  I even began to wonder if it was already Daylight Savings Time - "fall back".


DRJose, there was most likely a power outage for around an hour .  Did you turn on your hair dryer again?

DR Matthew - The one and only time I bought a bed was also a lot more trying and frustrating than I ever thought it would and could be.  And, yes, you're right, those mattress salesmen can be really impersonal at times.  In fact, I had one who got made at me, raised his voice and everything, after I told him I wanted to check out a few other places before making a decision.  "Well, why don't you just go ahead and look somewhere else and stop wasting my time!"

Umm... I didn't ask for the whole spiel when I walked in.  I just wanted to know the price.  Needless to say, I did not buy my mattress from that store.

VIKINGS is a great film. BK mentions Kirk's one eye.  Tony's one hand.  But he neglects to mention Janet's impressive breasts...of which there are still two, thank God.

I have a Viking film script that is still floating around town that's basis was a six-page letter by Calder Willingham who wanted to do another viking movie, because he felt he had short-shrifted the original and hadn't done his research.  He was absolutely wrong...it's a very good film.  So is the one that I wrote from his letter of ideas.  It reads screenplay by Charles Edward Pogue.  Story by Calder Willingham and Charles Edward Pogue.

I have never seen THE COLOR PURPLE.

Toileteries:   I usually buy whatever toothpaste and deodorant that is on sale...I'm currently using Colgate, but tomorrow it could be Crest or Rembrandt.  

Sometimes certain deodorants seem to turn on me or become ineffective, so I change brands frequently.

My hair products...spray, shampoo, etc are Thicker, Fuller Hair...from Australia.

My mouthwash again is whatever happens to be on sale.  Same for soaps.  

I love colognes.  My current ones are ENVY and one that has actually gone out of business...CORIOLAN by Guerlain.  The Lovely Wife got on the internet and found a place that was having a close-out on it and bought me many bottles that should last for quite a few years yet.

I have so many perfumes I find attractive for women, I have no one favourite, but I usually like very heady scents.  Scents that just exude sex and sensuality.  Love'em.

Oh...

Toothpaste - Mentadent - I liked the type that came in the regular toothpaste tubes rather than those pump deals.  However, the stuff in the tubes is getting harder to find.

I've tried using some of the 'classics' - Crest, Colgate, etc - but for some unknown reason they never fully rinse from my mouth, teeth, gums.  A few hours later, I would sometimes find some "gunk" on my tongue.  I asked my dentist about it, and he was thinking it was due to the fact that I had very healthy teeth (never had a cavity <knock wood>), and that some of the stuff in those toothpastes that are supposed to go into the surface of the teeth, would not absorb fully.  So..  Sounded good to me.

Topic of the Day:

Toothpaste:  whatever Costco has.  Right now it's an orange colored (but not flavored) AquaFresh.  It has a eucalyptus/menthol taste that took almost a whole tube to get used to.  Now, it's okay, but at first it was pretty gross.

Anti-perspirant:  whatever Costco has.  Right now, I don't remember.  I actually have three different kinds and switch off every few days.

Shaving cream:  whatever is cheapest at whatever store I go to when I run out.  Right now, some very cheap (totally-off) brand that I got at Grocery Outlets for only 99Ę...with 33% extra for free!

Soap:  whatever Costco has.  Right now, some new Irish Spring blue stuff.  Before that was Zest!

Shampoo:  Head & Shoulders...only.  My only brand loyalty.

Cologne:  I don't wear the stuff (too many "scent sensitive" people at work).  I have some Pierre Cardin (sp?) that someone gave me and on a whim, I bought a four-pack called "Cuba."  There are four different versions (green, blue, red and orange) in cigar-shaped spritzer bottles and I actually like a couple of them, but I never get a chance to wear it.

I have never bought a bed for myself. The two I've owned since living away from home were both hand-me-downs. The first was a double bed that my brother didn't want any more which I used in my first two apartments and in the guest room of this house for quite a few years.

The one in my bedroom now is the one my ex- brought with him when we moved into this house. When he left, he left the mattress since we were using the frame and headboard that went with my first bed (mattress and box springs) which was in the guest bedroom. When he left, he left the queen-sized bed (no quips, please) in the master bedroom and took the guest bedroom for himself. I bought a futon for the guest bedroom. (Does that count as a bed?)

For my next choice, I pulled from the to-watch shelf Brian De Palma's BODY DOUBLE. Another of his Hitchcock "tributes" (this one to REAR WINDOW), I only got about 10 minutes of it watched, so I've barely started it. There's a Dolby Surround 2.0 track that they've got cranked WAY up (the music in those first few minutes was VERY loud), and the transfer looks OK so far. Not super sharp, but it's an older movie, and they've probably used an old element for the transfer.

DR Jason, I have a half used bottle of Fructis in my hallway closet.  I bought it primarily for the neat looking radio/flashlight that came free with purchase.

I used the shampoo and I have to admit that it did make my hair feel stronger and more managable (I have extremely fine hair.)  But in warmer weather, using the shampoo makes me feel like I have some kind of plastic coating on my head.  
This sounds like...DEVO!!!

I just read that they just found an unfilmed screenplay that was supposed to be a sequal of sorts to the film Casablanca. It actually was going to featured the Ingrid Berman characters. It turns out that she is a nazi spy. The title of the script was Ilsa The She Wolf of the SS.

Ginny, Mint Theatre is an excellent company. I would recommend seeing the show. I haven't seen it yet. They focus on little known and forgotten work from the early part of the century. They are in a hole in the wall space on 43rd Street on the 5th floor of a non-theatre building, just west of 8th Avenue (across the street from a Ben and Jerry's, yummm!).

Thanks for the info, DR Ben.  I'm about to order a ticket for Oct. 4 on the premise that it's something I probably won't ever get the chance to see again.  Is that Ben and Jerry's right on the northeast corner of 43rd and 8th Ave?  If so, I've been there!

The song from Together Again called When It Comes To Bed is credited to Dean and Donna and yet there is no Donna in the cast list. Can you explain?

Unfortunately, my designer made a boo boo on the cast list and left off Marsha Kramer's name as Jessie, and gave Jessie's name to Deborah Moradzadeh - her character was Donna.  It never even occured to me to proof the cast list since he took it right off the LP, where it was correct.  It will be fixed for the next printing.

On the nauseating side: I saw Leonard Maltin today at a little used DVD/CD store in Burbank today.  What do you think Leonard Maltin was doing in said store?  Why, he was selling over 100 DVDs that he received as promo/review copies.  That is why stopped sending out review copies of CDs, unless I know for a fact that they will be reviewed.  I have only sent Kritzerland CDs to people who contacted me and asked for them, and the deal was that I get tearsheets on all reviews.  And I told them all that if CDs aren't reviewed, they stop getting them.

My boss took me with her to her hair dresser because she said she knew how to cut curly hair.  I bet you didnít know that I really do have curly hair.  When itís long, the weight pulls the curls out. Now everyone thinks Iíve had a perm/wave but itís all me.  

DR Ben, thank you so very much for telling me about the MB CD.  

Toothpaste Ė Crest.  Different flavors.

Soap Ė Dove  Unscented.

Shampoo Ė Brilliant Brunetteóthe entire line.  Conditioner, hair spray, gel, shine shock, etc.

Deodorant Ė Secret Platinum.  Unscented

Perfume.  I like flower scents.  Rose mostly but what ever it is has to be very light.

So how did dinner go last night?
For some reason, the grandlads only had a half-day at school yesterday.  We picked them up, took them home, and while they watched The Great Race, I handled cooking duties: roast leg of pork, with roasted root veggies, mashed potatoes, and Stouffer's Spinach Souffle.  After the movie, der B worked with them on their homework.

Mind, during all of this there was very little snacking going on.  William thought that some of what I was cooking sounded interesting, but when Alex learned of the menu he decided that he didn't like any of it and wasn't going to eat any of it.  And he was already digging in his heels, long before dinner was ready.

About an hour before dinner, Alex was insisting that he was hungry, and that he had the right to raid the kitchen and snack on whatever he wanted.  I told him "No," firmly, and was met with an angry stuck-out chin and furrowed brow.

Dinner was finally called, and the family sat at the table.  First we all had a salad, simple greens and tomatoes (served separately), with a choice of dressings.  William tried to pour half the bottle of Thousand Island on his salad, to his mother's dismay.  Alex refused to eat any salad ("I Hate Salad!" (those who know me should know how I feel about that word)) and tried to charge into the kitchen again to grab a snack-bag of chips, but was firmly told to return to the table.

The main course of dinner was served.  Alex, of course, refused to eat any of the dinner that was put on his plate.  He had no interest in eating the pork, and the mashed potatoes were made from real potatoes instead of Potato Buds, and he decided they were yucky and that he wasn't going to eat any of them.  But I had made a mistake: I had laid a few strips of bacon over the roast, to help moisten the meat while cooking.  And der Brucer compounded the mistake, by deciding that this could substitute for the meat for Alex, after some additional cooking in the nuker.  The grandlad practically gloated about not having to eat the same meat as everyone else.  Then Mommy knuckled under and gave Alex a large slice of cheese.

So, as far as Alex was concerned, he had won the dinner battle.  He hadn't eaten anything the rest of the family had for dinner.  And that is how he usually gets fed.  He either gets what he wants cooked for him, or he pulls his power plays and eventually gets his way.  This is a kid who also has a major problem with constipation, who hurts after having a stool and also has stomach cramps because he can't "poop", but whose parents cannot take control of his diet.  And one of the major contributors to constipation in young children?  Cheese, of course.

I try to keep a calm exterior, but inwardly I'm seething.  The thought of an eight-year-old child controlling his parents to this extent that it endangers his health, yet they aren't strong enough to stop what is happening, is infuriating to me.

At least the rest of the family enjoyed the meal.   :-\

Then I watched SUPERNATURAL for the second time. Just like its predecessor KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER, it looks like we're going to have a monster of the week. To their credit, they're keeping the monsters in shadows and more suggestive than physical embodiments in front of our eyes. (The few KOLCHAK episodes that did that were among the best ones.)






spoiler








I thought the contrivances were a little much, however. It just happened that the girl's brother was the only one left alive from the group and that the monster hadn't gotten around to eating him yet? Or that he kept the two from the hunting party alive as well when he captured them? And the flare gun just happened to be handy?

Good Evening!

Well... There are still a few wine glasses in the sink to be washed, as well as the cookies sheets the appetizers were cooked on (they're in the oven)... The dishwasher is full and running... And most of us here in the apartment have a slight buzz from consuming various bottles of wine.  In short, it was a wonderful evening.

In short...  We had "family" night here at the apartment.  Faith and I cooked dinner - sauteed chicken breasts drizzled with a balsamic glaze with shallots and mushrooms, sauteed fresh peas and fresh corn, and a simple bruschetta with fresh mozzarella and a homemade salsa rosa.  YUM!

A couple of friends and friends of friends came over.  We laughed, we drank, we played "Killer Bunnies", and we drank some more.  OH!  And we had a Chocolate Blackout Cake for dessert too!  -With Breyer's Butter Pecan Ice Cream on the side.

So, now I'm sitting here with a very full stomach just checking my e-mail and reading the posts here on HHW...

*However, I have to say the buzz on the new Johnny Cash show/revue that is currently running up in Buffalo has been very good.  And the reason everyone is enjoying it: It's basically just a concert of Johnny Cash songs.  No book is forced onto the material.  I guess Richard Maltby, Jr., took a page from his own book, namely the success of Ain't Misbehavin'.  Just one song after another with bits of biographical material.  As Sondheim so eloquently put it: What's hard is simple.

Since the show is closing so much earlier than expected, is there a chance someone else might snatch up the Palace before LESTAT? Disney's not gonna change their mind about the Richard Rodgers and try to steal the Palace for TARZAN, are they?

I did install the memory myself. I had installed a memory card in another computer many years ago, but it wasn't my computer and someone else had picked out the hardware, so I didn't stress as much as I did today. The snaps certainly gave me a few palpatations...:)

It was $48. That leaves me a couple of bucks for some pudding. When is that happening again, by the way...? ;)

No, that's not bad.  Not bad at all.  *I'm just really surprised no one picked it up for a tour and/or even a Vegas run of the show.  It really a very audience-friendly property.  I mean if Mamma Mia! can still be on the road after five+ plus years - and it's booked for at least another 18 months(!), I don't see any reason why All Shook Up couldn't do the same thing.  -And if I was the producer, I'd start touring the show in the smaller markets first - two to three week sit-downs max.  Heck, even Bombay Dreams is getting a tour?!?!?

Since the show is closing so much earlier than expected, is there a chance someone else might snatch up the Palace before LESTAT? Disney's not gonna change their mind about the Richard Rodgers and try to steal the Palace for TARZAN, are they?


If anything does come into The Palace, it will most likely just be a special event show - like last year's Vanessa Williams' Christmas concerts.

The San Francisco run of Lestat is scheduled to close January  29, 2006.  Right now, the official Broadway opening night is April 13, with previews starting a couple of weeks before that.  So, and this is total speculation on my part, if the San Francisco run proves to be successful, then Lestat could take residency a couple of weeks earlier at The Palace - early March as opposed to mid-March.

*And, apparently, the producers of Princesses are shopping for a theater, but they can't seem to find one big enough for the show.  -But won't the Minskoff be available come mid-January.  Or even possibly The Marquis?

;D

I did install the memory myself. I had installed a memory card in another computer many years ago, but it wasn't my computer and someone else had picked out the hardware, so I didn't stress as much as I did today. The snaps certainly gave me a few palpatations...:)

It was $48. That leaves me a couple of bucks for some pudding. When is that happening again, by the way...? ;)

Glad to know you accomplished your mission successfully.  :)

And $48?  Not bad at all.  How many MBs did that buy you?

As for the Banana Pudding...  I'm actually thinking of taking a brief break from sugar until the walking and eating tour - which is just two weeks away!

:)

-But you know how to get there on your own now, don't you?

;)

DR elmore - Safe travels to you, my friend!  Bon voyage!

*And did you decide which route (subway and bus) youre going to take in the morning?

Well.. I ended up washing the rest of the dishes, cleaning out some things from the fridge and freezer, and taking the garbage out.  Whew!

-But, strangely enough, I really do like cleaning.  And I really do have that "son of parents in the food service industry" gene.  I spent a good part of the evening cooking the dinner and washing dishes.  And I still had fun.  I do like playing host when I can, and it really was nice doing some cooking-cooking - it was my first time since I've been in NYC that I've broken out my good knives!

I try to keep a calm exterior, but inwardly I'm seething.  The thought of an eight-year-old child controlling his parents to this extent that it endangers his health, yet they aren't strong enough to stop what is happening, is infuriating to me.

At least the rest of the family enjoyed the meal.   :-\

Ugh!

You're in a very difficult situation.  It sounds to me like you're getting to the point where you'll either have to make a very concerted effort to take over the reins, or just give up the fight and let nature - and lackadaisical parenting - takes it's course.

Has the one grandlad been seeing a doctor already in regards to his digestive problems?  If so, could you possibly speak to the doctor, and sort of team up stealthily?  And if not, well...

Well... When the boy reaches his teens in a few years, well, maybe then his parents will get the point.  -A few years too late.

:-\

Or...

You could go the route my brother had to take with his son (my nephew)...  He would start letting him have homemade milkshakes and smoothies every day.  With a scoop of Bene-fiber blended in.  -And those orange-flavored Bene-fiber chewables, really do look and taste like candy.

Details, please.  Because we've got the beef on sale at the store, at a very good price, and I could use some suggestions.

My favorite way to prepare a London Broil - or whatever they happen to be labeling as London Broil at the store (but that's another column) - is with a salt crust.   Lots of kosher salt, eggs whites and a little bit of water.  -There's a basic recipe on the boxes of Morton's Kosher Salt.  Just mix that all up, form a base with the paste, place the cut of meat on top, and then enclose the meat with the rest of the salt mixture, and bake.  -For some reason 400 degrees sounds right to me right now.  Then once the meat is cooked to your desired degree of doneness, then just take it out the oven, and let it rest a bit on the counter.  Then the fun begins!  -And the grandlads could join in on this part...  Just start breaking away the salt crust - if you have a small mallet and "chisel", it makes for a very showy presentation.  The beef comes out very evenly done, and not at all salty.  *And the leftovers served cold are pretty good too from London Broil cooked this way.  -And some people do serve their London Broil cold, so...

Or you can always make a Beef Wellington, or even some individual Beef Wellingtons.  And you could customize the "innards" for each picky-eater at the table: the classic duxelles (mushrooms), sauteed spinach, sauteed broccoli rabe, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, etc., etc., etc.

BK, did you not see my first post of the day?  

I love the Vikings probably more than you do.  As you know, I have three posters of this movie framed and mounted on the wall in my TV room.  One American, one Italian, one Polish.  While they all are quite beautiful, the Polish one is a true work of art...The Vikings translate into Polish as WIKINGOWIE.  (I also have a poster of the Long Ships that I've yet to frame.).  

The Vikings is a rousing adventure movie with a brain...the kind of smart adventure movie they used to make.  The performers all acquit themselves wonderfully.  Janet's breasts are simply gob-smacking, and the score is exquisite...and, of course, rousing!  Did you watch the documentary on the DVD?

DR Jose - Is The Donut Plant on our Oct. 5 tour?  DH Richard and I watched a donut program on the Food Network last night and that was one of the places visited.

Speaking of the tour, I've just photocopied something from one of my professional journals and will be dropping it in the mail to you on my way home.  Not that you need any help planning the tour; I just thought you might find in interesting.

Actually, I believe the Donut Plant will be the first official stop on the tour.  I'm thinking we will all meet at one of the Times Square subway entrances, and then train down to the Lower East Side.  From the end of the line there, it's two blocks over and two blocks down through a funky little neighborhood.  We will just "graze" the Second Avenue area.  However, after the Donut Plant, we will then head west over into Chinatown, and then....

*And for those of you who don't like Bialys, there's an amazing bialy and bagel place next door.

:)

They just announce on the local news that Hurricane Rita has been upgraded to a level 3!  I don't know when it was officially upgraded, though.  And they expect it to upgrade to level 4 within 24 hours...and could possibly go up to a level 5!  AND New Orleans could get hit again!!

I have to go to the dentist in the morning. :P I haven't gotten a cavity since high school, so I'm doing something right.  But I don't floss.  My bad. ::) My appointment is at 11:00 a.m., but since I usually get to work at 10:00 a.m., I either have to go to work very early to make going to work worth it, or not go to work until after the appointment, in which case I'll have to use a bit of vacation along with the sick leave for the appointment.  Oh, what to do?? ;)

DR CP & MR BK the October, 1958, issue of GENT magazine features a pictorial on THE VIKINGS  and a birthday party for Janet Leigh that featured the theme MY FAIR VIKING with Janet in a rather risque brassiere.
