Well, you've read the notes, the notes had a full head of steam, and now it is time for you to post until the steamy cows come home.

As promised, here is the flyer for the LACC cabaret series.  It would really be fun to see any West Coast hainsies/kimlets, and that includes lurkers, and also visitors from other cities.

Great flyer, BK.  Good luck.  I hope the cabaret series turns out splendiferously! (did I spell that correctly??)

Good Monday Morning all!  I'm so glad the mini gathering went so well.  :)

I wish I had better news about being able to make it to NY in the fall but I think that hope is gone.  I've had to use to much of time for doctor appointments.    Sigh.

It doesn't take long to use your time but it sure takes forever to build it up.

This is the lowest I've ever been on my vacation/sick leave bank.  I'm really worried that if something major happens I will have to take time off with no pay.

I'm so sorry your having such problems with your kittys, DR Cillaliz.  

I confess I was having the same thoughts about Sheena, Queen of the Jungle but the little booger got to me.  I wouldn't think of giving her up now.

She is a problem and a handful but she sure does spice the house life up!  :)

And she LOVES the little pool I bought for her and Bear.  Bear will step into it from time to time but Sheena rolls around in it.   She isn't afraid to put her nose under the water and blow bubbles either.  

She tries to "dig" in the water and can't seem to figure out why she doesn't leave a hole.  Of course, it she doesn't watch it, she will put a hole in the side of the pool.

I'll have to try to post some pictures I took of her and Bear at the pool at the dog park.

She found a little beagle to play with while at the park and the two of them just took off running and playing with each other.   I thought she was a little rough with the beagle but his owners didn't seem to mind.  They were tell her to get him!

I am my own frenzy!

DR Elmore, I am glad that your Dad is doing better.  Mom has her good days and her bad ones.  

I am most unhappy with her doctor.  I am thinking of removing her from that doctors care.  In fact, I am thinking of removing her from the Humana plan and moving her to Medicade (sp?).

I still have my swimmers ear but it is getting better.  Sometimes my ear "cracks" and I can hear alright but then it plugs right back up.  I'll give it a few more days but if it still isn't all the way cleared up, I shall have no choice except to return to the doctor.

I think I remember the Mexican jernt our esteemed BK mentions in his notes.  His remark was fitting back when der B and I visited it, as well.

I've been trying to come up with an anagram for BEATIFIC, but none of them are in any way lovely.

Good morning, al!  I'm off for breakfast with my dad and brother in a few minutes.  At 10:20, round 3 of chemo begins.  I honestly don't know how this round will affect him, and I'm hoping it isn't so horrible that I need to cancel tomorrow's flight.  I feel that my visit was profitable but too long, and I'm homesick for Manhattan.

I had peculiar dreams last night, but I feel they're prompting me to write a piece about/for my dad.  I'm not sure what it is, but there are lots of melodies dancing around in my head from old Baptist hymns to country fiddles.  My dad was born in Fallsburg, KY, on Dec. 14, 1921, deep in the coal mining area of Appalachian Kentucky.  

DR Cillaliz, the book's tone and storyline are different; the screenplay's decision to remove a crucial character meant rethinking sections of the plot toaccommodate things.  Changes:
  1.  Andrea is from Ohio, not Connecticut and her family is drastically reduced.
  2.  A roommate with a drug problem.
  3.  The number of demeaning and futile tasks Miranda assigns her.

I liked the book, and I liked the film quite a lot.  I'd recommend you read it.

DR Jose, I'm hopefully back tomorrow!

And so to breakfast!

TOD - Are we talking specifically the LP cover or the LP packaging?  If the whole LP packaging, I enjoyed the shrine :) to Sondheim in the MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG LP as well as the THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE movie LP, which opened up like a great big hilarious book.  LP covers -  I love the HELLO DOLLY movie LP cover and the Cyndi Lauper cover for SHE'S SO UNUSUAL, as well as Don McLean's AMERICAN PIE.

Allison under glass...yes some photos tend to stick - depends on the photo and the glass....  I learned the lesson the hard way, too.

Too bad that the musicals were NOT enjoyed by MR BK.  I hate when I want to see a show, and someone has messed it up - on purpose!

Good morning!

The last of our cool mornings (sigh) so I am enjoying it as much as possible. I know in about an hour, I'll be closing the windows and doors, and it'll be back to electrically cooled air for the next couple of months.

Thanks... Always good to be seen...

I had just gotten back in from moving my car, and was about to head back to bed for a bit when the news broke on TV...

- And they have just pulled the one guy who had been trapped for the past 90 minutes from the rubble...  Let's hope that he was the only trapped in the collapse.

Unquestionably my favorite album cover of all time was the foil cover of ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. That deco design with the foil just SCREAMED classy, and I adored it. The CD cover doesn't even rank as a pale reflection of the majesty of that cover.

A CHORUS LINE's foil cover was pretty nice, too.
