Well yes - if they see me out and about, they might do that.

Especially if you are wearing that red dress from the other day!

My dear, you can't wear a getup like that before cocktail hour with any sense of decorum.    8)

Honey - Just because it's not cocktail hour, doesn't mean you can't have a cocktail.

Just remember that it's always cocktail hour somewhere!

Curious what you other Lost-ophiles thought about last night's episode.  It didn't immediately "wow" me, but there were certainly some interesting new threads that may weave into something exciting.

I found it a WOW from beginning to end. I can't believe you weren't immediately caught up with Hurley's "frontstory" and the information that brought forth. And all of the events back on the island were emotionally powerful, gripping, etc. . . . .

I couldn't have been more WOWED. Sorry you weren't.

Those script changes were radical - the older Ben/Buddy/Sally/Phyllis had actual conversations with their younger selves.  And so on.  No wonder Sondheim and company have put the kabosh on it being repeated.

Here's something that's occurred to me: why is it I never see pictures of the original Broadway production in color anywhere?  I've seen lots of black and white photos, and I know color pics were taken because I remember seeing them in Time magazine back when I was in college (he unafraidedly dates himself).  So, where are the color pics?

There are some great color pics in Ted Chapin's EVERYTHING WAS POSSIBLE.

From an ugly, rainy winter morning, we now have a splendid early spring afternoon. Not a cloud in the sky, and the most brilliant sunshine and mild temperatures. Such an amazing shift from this morning when it couldn't have been more miserable.

And the word of the day is: SUPPURATE!  Find a song for THAT one!
 CHALLENGE ACCEPTED BK
The Song Of The Day Is : DESTINED TO FESTER
 (sung by a Group Called AUTOPSY)

It Ain't Pretty-But The Lyrics are as follows:


knee deep in sewage
maggotts burrowing thru my face
blinded by disease
waiting for my living death to end

slicing teeth
infectious chewing at my skin
my blood is clotted with pus
the maddening shrill cries
of rabid vermin never stop

I pick away
at my mouldering flesh
insanity has left my mind
a tortured mess

face chewed to bits
on my body they feast
swimming in the rancid sewage
spreading their disease

Have written almost six pages - they went quickly once I started, because it's an interesting sequence and has some good action in it, which I enjoyed writing very much.  I'll do another page and a half later, but for now I think I'll take a break and do a couple of errands and get them out of the way.  I may take a field trip later this afternoon to get some details for the book, and I think I will go back to Nate 'n Al later for a pastrami sandwich and a walk on Beverly Dr.

While I cooked and ate lunch, I finished the NCIS episode I had started last night. This was the one where someone was burying bodies in military crypts. A BIG surprise for an ending.

Since I was still eating, I put in another NCIS episode, this one with a serial killer using events from McGee's new book to execute murders. I did remember how this turned out, but it was still an OK episode.

I watched three episodes of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST this afternoon. Since Catherine has been dead since the end of episode 2, the series has been drifting a bit, but now that a new female has entered Vincent's life (a detective still on the trail of Catherine's murderer and baby abductor), the show is wanting to restart itself with this new "partner" for Vincent. Obviously it didn't take with audiences since the show was canceled after this season.

One of the episodes was really entertaining: a hit man/brother of the man who killed Catherine was on the hunt for Vincent, so the episode became a cat and mouse stalking episode, and it was better than the other two I've watched today.

The hit man was played effectively by Lance Henderickson.

I skimmed quickly through today's AS THE WORLD TURNS. No Luke and/or Noah, nor were they featured in next week's previews.

I ended my afternoon of viewing by watching the first quarter of last night's SUPERNATURAL. The show started late, so I'm going to miss the end of the episode. I may have to ask DR Ron Pulliam to fill me in on the ending since I know he watches SUPERNATURAL.

According to

Michael Riedel

Hal Prince has had a minor stroke

And in the "What Were They Thinking" department:  at the end of this article, there is mention of a revival of Brigadoon...and yet another book that's being rewritten:

John Guare has rewritten Lerner's book, turning Brigadoon into a pacifist town that "disappeared" in 1939 because its inhabitants didn't want to live in a world torn apart by war.

What a boneheaded decision! It enrages me when classics like this are tampered with so unnecessarily.

Guess I'll write for a bit and then head back down to finish what's left on the DVR of SUPERNATURAL and then back to BEAUTY AND THE BEAST until MONK comes on.
