Yes, DR George, the nice thing about missing shows on most cable channels is that there's a almost always a rerun somewhere on the schedule before the next new episode airs.

Of course, I haven't watched RENO 911! yet (or the other things I recorded last night). I'll get to them this afternoon after lunch with best friend John.

And I'm hoping for DECEIT in the mail today. It had the entire weekend to get here, so it should arrive unless the mailman just decides he doesn't want to deliver any packages today.

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!  :)

DR Danise, I didn't know you had Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. That's a great name.

I'm going to keep Boo. I don't know who I thought I was trying to fool...myself I guess, everyone else around here seemed to know that she wasn't going to be leaving.   I'm not sure how I'm going to handle it, but it will work out one way or another.

Just got off the phone with the Air Conditioner people.  Last time it got extremely hot my ac froze up. Since it's supposed to be about 100 near the end of the week. I'm having it checked.

Good idea, DR Cillaliz.  I just closed our windows and put the AC back on, not so much because of the heat, but the humidity.  Loved having those windows open the last several days!

I also just signed up for a free energy audit of my house by MidAmerican Energy.  I know I need more insulation and if it's recommended, MidAmerican will pay up to 70% of the cost of putting it in!  They also give you free lightbulbs, insulation for pipes if necessary and insulation for a water heater if necessary as well as make suggestions for making your home more efficient.  Cool beans...

In other news...

And, DR TCB, this is the news you've been waiting for... Well, part of it at least...

I will be Music Directing a benefit concert reading of Marcy Heisler's and Zina Goldrich's Dear Edwina for the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater here in New York City.  Yes, it is a children's show, and it's being presented by a company named "Rattlestick"...  Rattlestick is dedicated to nurturing and producing the works of new and upcoming playwrights, and they are looking to expand their audience base by presenting some more family-friendly fare - thus, the presentation of Dear Edwina.

We're just running for three performances about two weeks from now.  I'll be working with a wonderful cast and production team.  And, needless to say, it's just nice to be working on a show again.  Dear Edwina (and Dear Edwina, Jr. has been around for a couple of years, but it's never been produced in NYC even though Zina and Marcy - or Goldrich and Heisler, if you prefer - have had a pretty good record on the cabaret front.  They wrote one of Kristin Chenoweth's signature songs, "Taylor, the Latte Boy".

For more info, just check out Rattlestick's homepage at:

http://www.rattlestick.org

As I get more details, I'll pass them on.

And as the final rounds of casting for Disneyworld's upcoming Finding Nemo show continue over the next couple of weeks, I have been asked to be "in the room" for the remaining sessions.  :)

I have to say that the couple of days of auditions I've already played have been pretty wonderful.  Great people in front of the table - the people auditioning - and great people behind the table - the production staff.  I've even managed to bond with some of the actors and actresses who came through the door.  I have about three or four more auditions days coming up, and even though I know I won't be down in Florida once the show goes into rehearsals, a trip down to Orlando would just be a bonus at this point.  *Not that I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to spend the fall in Orlando.  ;)

-And the songs - by Robert Lopez (Avenue Q and his wife, Kristen - are pretty darn catchy.  And after playing them countless times already - and sometimes in different keys(!) - I'm not tired of playing or hearing them.  They still make me smile.

Thank You.

-And even though the gig basically lasts a week, I'm pretty sure it will be one of those "short but sweet" experiences.  And, hopefully, it will lead to more work down the line.

Hmm.. I believe Marcy and Zina are working on the Broadway-bound adaptation of "Ever After"... Hmm... ;)

And speaking of more work...

I've also been recently been called in to play some auditions for The Phantom of the Opera which has given me a chance to use my "classical chops" again since many of the singers bring in opera repertoire.  Always nice to be challenged every once and a while.

Oohhhh... I just scanned searched back through some posts, and I did miss DR Matthew while he was in NYC.  :(

Guess that means I'll have to get back out to San Francisco again.

;)

Hope you/they had a good time in The Big Apple last week.
