Well it is glorious to hear the music and a lot of the actors are doing very well, but I echo DR ELMORE's comments about CAMELOT.

We are just going to the joust.....the three Knights and Mr duLac are indeed the stars....with Ms Marin Mazzee a close second, although in her closeups she shore has a G E N E R O U S mouth.  Staging is okay with some clever bits.

I really do love this show, and it is wonderful to see it.  But it is so unbearably sad in parts......

I loved doing the show....I played Mordred....it is was very hard to kill someone's dream every night....whew!

Camelot is being shown on our Cincinnati PBS, but I've given up after an hour.  I agree with DR Elmore that Nathan Gunn inhabits his character, but I cannot stand Gabriel Byrne as Arthur.  And I decided tonight that I'd rather listen to Maren Mazzie than watch her.  I have no business staying up until the late hour at which this is scheduled to end.

I would like to have seen Fran Drescher, though.  Gilda Radner played Morgan le Fey in a University of Michigan production when she was a senior and I was a freshman.

Something slightly awful happened to me tonight.

My mom had brought back 3 Murano glass necklaces from Italy. She said that i could choose my favorite.

When i was trying one on (the one i was going to take), it fell to the floor and the glass shattered.

One of the links in the chain was loose.

I just felt awful. I felt bad because it was the one i wanted. But i mostly felt bad that my mom had gone to the trouble of buying it and spent who knows how much on it. And i broke it before even wearing it.

In the grand scheme of things it's not that big a deal. But i still cried and felt very bad.  I looked at the other necklaces and they also had loose links.

My mom said that it had not cost that much (which at least made me feel better). And she gave me one of the other ones.

It just put me in a downer mood before Survivor. :(

I don't think anyone has posted this.  A friend just sent it to me--most of the components come from John Deere tractors!  Unbelievable.

CAMELOT is on here at 1am. So i will record it then.

I'm glad they are showing it. But the idea of putting it on in the middle of the night seems quite stupid. The only people who will likely see it are those who know about it and record it.

So...

I made it to The Original Pantry Cafe this afternoon...

-As for the coleslaw...  I also think my Coleslaw-o-meter is a bit skewed from my time in Richmond (where some places give you a choice of two or three different styles of coleslaw), and in NYC, of course.  

Once when I complained the coleslaw was too dry, Nate 'n Al's told me to request it wet.  I was in my fifties before I ever heard that ;D

Oh...

I also went back to Union Station, Olvera Street - those taquitos with avocado sauce were good(!), the Los Angeles Cathedral (quite an amazing building), the Ahmanson, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Disney Concert Hall (WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - truly a stunning piece of architecture!), Pershing Square and Angel's Flight.

Whew!

*And, yes, pictures were taken, but I still need to edit them down size-wise before posting them here.

Is Angels Flight still running?

DR George re: GLORY DAYS. I think the reason it is not eligible for Tony awards is not because it was only open for 1 show (and previews).

IT is because Tony voters have to be invited to see the show.

Oh, Deere!!!

Hmmmmmmmmm.....well even the comments here at HHW did not prepare me for the disastrous and ridiculous turn CAMELOT takes with Mordred's appearance - if I didn't know better, I would think Libby Appel had her fine hand in this someplace.

I am not sure the show will recover for me.

DR Jennifer, that is a shame.  I understand feeling guilty even though it wasn't your fault. At least the other necklaces were fixed in time before they also broke.  Will you post a photo?  Murano glass is beautiful.

Those necklaces are beautiful, DR JENNIFER - we sell some at the World of Wisdom, ours come from Argentina, and yes they are very fragile.

It seems when I leave my computer on and walk away, it freezes.  The last couple I couldn't re-start it without Keith's computer skills.  I have dishes to wash, I think it best I turn the computer off.

I hope the links on your necklaces are sturdier.  I would enjoy seeing photos of the Murano glass from Argentina.  I thought Murano was Italian.

Well it was my fault. If it had fallen on the carpet it would not have broken.

The funny part of the story is that i could not decide which one to take.

And then just as i said to myself "i'll take this one", it fell to the floor and broke.

I mostly felt guilty because i was afraid it had cost a lot of money.

Like DR Jane said, i get that the glass would be fragile. That is obvious.

But these necklaces had links in the chain that were slightly open.

I checked and all 4 necklaces had this problem (including the one my mom bought for herself). Luckily she had not done hers up by the loose link or hers might have broken too.

i've also only heard of murano from Italy.

I think the thing here is that if you buy them from a jewelry store they probably make sure the links are good.

But my mom said she got at least one from a market.

I don't think i can post a picture. Plus the nicest one is the one that broke.  Although if i find a glue that can hold glass i might try to glue it back together. It broke in 4 pieces. With one huge chunk. Then the clasp and 2 sides. It will probably look weird but i'd like to try.

RE: the tonys being on father's day.

I don't necessarily think that part of it will matter. I guess some people do have family dinners at night.

The part i was really wondering about was why it was not the week before.
