 We got off at Central Park South, walked to Columbus Circle and got a 104 bus up to Artie's Deli for dinner.

Did DR elmore walk over & meet you at Artie's?

My take on the Plaza cake - they unveiled it before 5pm and probably didn't cut it until 3 or 4 hours later.  I'm not sure I'd want to eat a cake that had sat out in the soot of Manhattan rush hour for that long  :P

The tour guide who took us past the Plaza today asked if anyone had attended the event last night.  She didn't seem impressed when I told her that we'd been at the rehearsal.

Well I'M impressed and jealous. I would have loved to hear the music and see the cake..

Samantha, lovely new avatar.  Did you still get paid since you showed up for jury duty?

I have to use the pillows on the plane, at least two, three if I'm lucky.  It always makes me nervous but so far I haven't noticed a problem.

What's all this fuss about a new "Pluto" and how on earth (or Mars or Venus) did DR JoseSPiano and DakotaCelt get there?

Karma!

Did DR elmore walk over & meet you at Artie's?

We invited him, but this afternoon's computer and plumbing challenges had rendered him (according to Elmore himself) unfit company.  I hoped he'd decide a bowl of Matzo ball soup would cheer him up.  We did make a plan to visit his new office tomorrow, which we'll finalize with a phone call in the morning.

The egg creme or is it cream?  comment was an attempt to document your working on this trip for tax purposes - of course that isn't legal advice and I'm not a tax attorney ;)

Thanks! Good thinking! I was vaguely hoping I might get a thank you in The Brain program for those long nights of editing the LA version of the show, but I didn't think to ask bk if he could do it until we were in NY, which was too late. Of course, I think you have to get paid before you can write something off, but when The Brain becomes a huge hit on Broadway...

Fortunately, we can write off some of Greg's trip since he actually worked for a day!

Since I don't think we will ever see any profit from S&V or The Internationale, I'm not expecting  one from a doc made by Peter's daughter and shot by us to make a profit. But I do think if we finish it and it turns out well, it can play at every Jewish Film Festival in the country (and there are A LOT of them!).

I'm not sure if I will or not. I did go and check in with the Clerk's Office.

No.  I'm not in a sociable mood today after all the crap with the printer and the leak.

I've been watching the "Mr Straight Guy" pageant on QUEER EYE tonight.  It certainly made me laugh.

DRs elmore and DerBrucer...

From bk's notes of yesterday:But if you could see it from my eyes…(a Cabaret reference)

Cabaret should be italicized.  And the lyric in Cabaret is, "If you could see her through my eyes."

Quote
An eerie show about invasions from out space opens with a darken stage; a disembodied voice begins the narration and soon the narrator is reveled in fill light and the action begins. Look perfectly natural to me!

"darkened"
"Looked"

Quote
The audience around me was having a hard time keeping up with the jokes they got (their laughs got cut short by the fast pacing which soon yielded another yuk. So, missed opportunities were certainly not evident. The play's' pacing was a marvel at NOT milking the gags.

*The extra apostrophe is not necessary, nor correct.


Shall I continue? ;)

Quote
Beware - I am planning on some more extensive comments on the show!

Yes.  Beware.  ;D

At least you should get credit for attendance & might not be called for jury duty again for awhile.

We had a nice sunny day today.  I took Sherlock for a hike in the morning.  In the afternoon we met friends in town & went for a walk with our dogs.  Then we sat outside on the Starbuck’s deck and had drinks.  I also had a tuna sandwich I picked up elsewhere as I hadn’t eaten all day.  The sandwich was very good, with carrots, red peppers & something called veggie pepper.

I would certainly hope so.. I'm on a 3 month term though.. so who knows. I'm going to Florida for a week mid-October, so hopefully they don't call me again until November. Haha.

"HHW activity" is sort of like the "police activity" that you hear about on the traffic reports, except without the flashing red lights...

;)

I have never been on jury duty.  I have only been called a few times & always  had a legitimate reason not to go.  The first time was when Bryan was only a month old, that was almost 31 years ago.  Another time I received a notice as we were moving out of the state.
