More for the memoirs?  Like Hell!  There was no sex in that post.  There was drugs, and there was chicanery; but there was absolutely no sex.

You've obviously never been to the Drama Book Shop.  And who said that DR elmore was asked to come back for his retail expertise?

Hmm... It seems that I may have to try a few new things over the next couple of days...

The Next Best Things in Sliced Bread - Seven New Sandwiches Try to Make It in New York



*I've already had the falafel from Taim many times - all three of their regular varieties - and I think it's my favorite falafel in NYC.  And, frankly, that Benny Mac sandwich sort of scares me.  But in a good way.  ;)


I spent many weekends in Montclair, N.J; how did I miss the Watchung Delicatessen?

Since it is Ask BK Day... And since I'm drawing an almost total blank right now...

I need a Women's Ensemble number from a Broadway show.  Right now, all I can think of is "Jeannie's Packing Up" from Brigadoon.  I have duets and trios, but I need a group number.

Anyone?  Anything else?

If all you want is sex, read someone else's memoirs!

Hmm... Although, I have/hate to admit it, I've always found that song sort of annoying.  -But I think that's related to all those over-perky renditions I've come across during auditions.

Which do you hate? Surely not "Many A New Day," one of Rodgers' most wonderful?

Also, "Money Isn't Everything" from ALLEGRO

I'm also partial to HAVE A HEART's opening chorus "Shop!" for the shop girls

I think THE RED MILL's "When You're Pretty And the world Is Fair" is also a women's ensemble.

Thank you again and again, DR elmore.

-And, alas, it is "Many A New Day" which tends to get on my nerves.  But as I mentioned, I've just heard it butchered too many times in auditions when sung as a solo.

And now I'm wondering if the gentleman who was sitting next to me has throttled the neck of the woman who was sitting behind him who kept popping and snapping her gun by now - they were both continuing on to North Carolina.  It annoyed me too initially, but then the entertainment value of his under-his-breath comments kicked in. ;)


Is she allowed to carry a gun on the train?

I think it's such a great song! But if I had to hear a lot of people butcher my favorite songs, I might share your opinion.

When are you returning to Manhattan?

Thank You, DR Noel!


*After all the Monday night's I've spent at Splash, I'm actually sort of embarrassed that I forgot about "Hey, Big Spender" and "My Body".  ;D

Well, I'm meeting up with some friends for a late-ish dinner tonight, but in the meantime, I think I'm going to go ahead and take a little cat nap.

Well, in that case I'm safe, because I have absolutely no love for those damned two dollar bills.

Oh, I am sure that if you could only buy cook books by paying with two dollar bills, I bet you would love them.

Another friend just sent me this message from the Commercial Closet Association about the "As The World Turns" gay kiss that the American Family Association is upset over:

Dear CCA supporter,

Want advertisers to continue to support gay-friendly programming?

Procter & Gamble, the parent of numerous familiar household product brands, is currently under pressure from anti-gay conservatives for including a same-sex kiss between the characters Noah and Luke who are a couple on the daytime program "As the World Turns." The kiss was a response to previous support by fans who wanted to see the couple kiss again since last September, and even mailed bags of Hershey's chocolate kisses to the CBS studio.


But the American Family Association (AFA) issued an action alert to get its members to contact P&G, the show's producer, to stop future gay affection on the soap: "Procter & Gamble has resumed using explicit, open-mouth homosexual kissing in their soap opera, 'As the World Turns.' P&G decided to include this type of content as a commitment to 'diversity.' Gay activists are hopeful that the P&G effort will desensitize viewers to the homosexual lifestyle and help make the unhealthy and immoral lifestyle more acceptable to society, especially to children and youth."

So P&G has set up a phone voting system to register your support (or disagreement) with the program. It's easy to take action: just dial 800-331-3774. You'll be prompted to press #1 for English. Then press #2 to express your thoughts on "the storyline of As the World Turns." Then you can press #1 to say you support the Luke & Noah storyline.


There's nobody to talk to, you are not asked to identify yourself -- and it takes just a few seconds.
