I'm up, I'm up.  I can't remember the last time I slept past eleven, let alone eleven-thirty.  I must have NEEDED it.  Gray here, and I can see it's been raining, but it's not now.

So, DR RLP - what is happening in this photo?  Is this part of Act One or Act Two?  :D

There are people outside, walking, despite the grayness.  How can it be lunchtime already?

2006 is already flying by, like a gazelle in platform shoes.

So much on which to catch up (how's that for not ending a sentence with a preposition).


Ending the sentence with "much" would have been OK DR Ben. :)
"Up" is a preposition but then I guess your sentence really ended with the Parenthesis.

Welcome back.

Probaby one of those near West End Avenue buildings - nice moldings, small apartment done cleverly (bigger apartment, more traditional if we were in a bigger proscenium space), some IKEA (for budgetary reasons), but a video projector (one character likes his toys).

I have returned! I miss Dublin and Cardiff but I am secure in the knowledge that we had a glorious vacation and I am a richer person for it.

Welcome back, Ben!  

Have you heard anything about getting a complete copy of your show with Beverley??  I still haven't gotten a response from my feedback about the switching of shows in midstream.

Every year, a fellow named Darrel Karl posts his best of year CDs on a group called castrec.  While one doesn't always agree with him, he's been very kind to my productions over the years.  This year, he named best revival cast album on CD thusly:

BEST NEW REVIVAL CAST ALBUM:  After The Ball (Kritzerland).  It would be easy to pick Pacific Overtures and DRG’s Wonderful Town recording with Brooke Shields is (surprisingly) more enjoyable than the Donna Murphy version, but this recording runs rings around the original London cast album.  Bruce Kimmel did an excellent job in preserving just enough of the dialogue to allow the cast album to tell the story as well as to showcase the too-long neglected gem of a Noel Coward score. And for once, the interpolations aren’t objectionable.

And he named best male vocalist CD thusly:

BEST MALE VOCAL/INSTRUMENTAL:  Guy Haines/New Guy In Town (Kritzerland).  Another controversial choice, I suspect.  Sure, there are other performers below who might technically be better singers.  But this album has the Kimmel “sound” and song arrangements reminiscent of the old Varese Sarabande days (which you either love or hate, but I love) that none of the other albums have -- plus a song selection that is fun, quirky, and highly individualistic.  And, for better or worse, “Guy’s” taste in songs almost always mirrors my own.  It’s a comfort food recording for me.

I'm spending my afternoon pulling more CDs on to my computer for future uploading onto my ipod.  A good way to kick off the year, I feel.

Perhaps I'll put on some clothing and go out for a bit.  Whatever shall I eat this fine day?  Is anything open?  I have very little in the house.  Hmmm.

For anyone looking for new tv, ABC has a new series called IN JUSTICE at 10pm. And at 9pm is one of those clips/synopsis type DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. I will watch both, since sometimes those synopsis shows either show new things, or remind me of things I forgot.

Happy New YEAR'S to everyone.

Congratulations to Kritzerland and Mr BK on their CD success - and to Darrel Karl on his unerring good taste.

Will Mr Haines celebrate?  Perhaps he should get something to eat.

I completely forgot I have a party to attend at six, although whether I WILL attend is another story - it's just down the street, so I'll probably drop in to say hey.  

Meanwhile, Gelson's was open so I got some foodstuffs from there deli.

Good evening!

Back from picking up my friend at the airport, and we went to a yummy Chinese buffet so the holiday season ended on a perfect note.

Poor guy has to work tomorrow (he teaches second grade), so I feel for him with that 80-90 minute drive home and then having to face the youngsters tomorrow.
