Ann has finally caught up.

Today has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day...to quote the beloved children's book of my youth.  Too many details to explain.  I need a hug.  Or a strong drink.  Or both.

Sending Ann a hug and a strong Diet Coke.  Doing the Limbo might just help.

FATHER KNOWS BEST

(From the AP:)

Italics mine.

Quote
Rosemary Kennedy Dies at 86
Friday, January 07, 2005
 
WASHINGTON Rosemary Kennedy (search), the oldest sister of President John F. Kennedy and the inspiration for the Special Olympics, died Friday. She was 86.

Kennedy, the third child of Rose and Joseph Kennedy (search), was born mentally retarded and underwent a lobotomy when she was 23. She lived most of her life in a Jefferson, Wis., institution, the St. Coletta School for Exceptional Children.

But as she got older, her father worried that his daughter's mild condition would lead her into situations that could damage the family's reputation.

"Rosemary was a woman, and there was a dread fear of pregnancy, disease and disgrace," author Laurence Leamer wrote in an unauthorized Kennedy biography called "The Kennedy Women: The Saga of an American Family." He wrote that Rosemary had taken to sneaking out of the convent where she was staying at the time.

Doctors told Joseph Kennedy that a lobotomy, a medical procedure in which the frontal lobes of a patient's brain are scraped away, would help his daughter and calm her mood swings that the family found difficult to handle at home.

Psychosurgery was in its infancy at the time, and only a few hundred lobotomies had been performed. The procedure was believed to be a way to relieve serious mental disorders. Leamer wrote that Rosemary was "probably the first person with mental retardation in America to receive a prefrontal lobotomy."

I bet Jeff Kauffman could have a few pointed comments to add!

Oh, BK, you're gonna die!  Talking about Lada Edmund, Jr. doing the Ray Courts show, reminded me that they should have one coming up soon (they do; mid-February).  The celeb list is starting to fill in; no great surprises other than Yma Sumac and...are you ready for it?...HALEY MILLS!

Hayley did the show a year ago.  I tried to get to her table to say "hey" but it was madness, and I assume it will be the same this time.  I should see if Ray'll let me have a table to hawk Writer's Block.

Well, there's the sun, the earth, something called centrifugal force, and something else called gravity...

Unless...

Well, there's a little hand and big hand...

Um... Not to nitpick here, but, technically speaking, a Flugelhorn is not a wind instrument.  A Flugelhorn is a Brass instrument.

Now as for that second wind, I was thinking more along the lines of an E-flat Clarinet or and English Horn.  Yes, an English Horn is a wind instrument.

...OK... I thought I knew where I was going with this, but obviously I don't, so....

You should see if Ray can get you a table next to Haley.  Maybe you'll get some of her overflow trade.  Or maybe she'll get some of yours. Maybe you both can perform a duet of "Let's Get Together, Yeah, Yeah Yeah."  Maybe you'll both flirt outrageously with each other and then that HHW wedding you've been waiting for will become a reality.

Yeah - well Mr Yamaha catalogs it as a wind - along with Tubas, Trombones, Saxaphones, French Horns and other brassy guys.

I suspect the distinction is "wind", not "woodwind".

Well...

I'm afraid I'm going to have to be a Supreme Wussburger with Cheese tonight... A Supreme Wussburger with Cheese Product...  A Supreme Wussburger with Velveeta! in fact...

I'm tired.  My sleep schedule has been soooo weird this week.  My sinuses are giving me heck - the weather this past week has just been plain ugly...

OK - I'm kvetching.  I'm OK.  Just tired.  And I have two shows tomorrow... So...

Goodnight.

Yamaha?  What do they know!?!?!? They cater mainly to Band people!  (as opposed to Orchestra people)

-That was supposed to be sort of a joke.  Well, if you're an uber-music geek - like I am/was - then I guess it could be funny... Or not...

Wasn't I heading to bed?

Yes, I think I was.  And that would be a very good idea to carry through with that plan...

But before I go...

Now all those punny band t-shirts and bumper stickers are going through my head:

I'm Oversaxed

Drummers Do It With Rhythm

I'm a Little Bit Horn-y

Care To Blow My Horn?

How Big Is Your Bell?  (trombone bells, etc.)

Marimba Players Use Both Hands

Support the Arts, Kiss a Musician

etc., etc., etc...

A cyber-hug to DR Ann.

I just took the Wonderdog out and it is WET out there. My car, which is parked in front of the house, has a raging river running under it. I hope it doesn't float away by morning. The City of Studio does not have the best drainage system in the world. Actually, most of LA is in that boat, so to speak. A friend of mine who works in Beverly Hills said the police station was giving out sandbags (Gucci, of course).
I barely slept last night (no pj's) - so I'm going to lie down and read, listen to the rain. Going to try not to fall asleep for a few hours or I'll wake up at 1 A.M..
Laters!

It went well. Thank you for asking, sir.  As I think I posted earlier, I wrote on and off for 12 hours, so now I can barely see and my back is a mess. I still have quite a bit left to do, but it's getting there.

Do you need a Cherry Coke? We went to the grocery store to get Cherry Coke, and there wasn't any. Can you believe that? No Cherry Coke!  ???  :o  :'(

In other news, there is no other news and this whole post is, in fact, entirely pointless.

I just took a really hot and really long shower.  It was gloriously glorious.  I'm listening to Bacharach and have no patience for a movie.
