THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS

Well, you've read the notes, the notes had a sweet smell or some sort of smell, and now it is time for you to post until the smelly cows come home.

Almost a sartorial word of the day. With a bow.

Wow!  You had Roslyn Kind in your audience (for those who don't know, she's Barbra Streisand's half-sister).

You had a bacon cheeseburger, slaw, and coconut cream pie with whipped cream?  All of that in a pie??  Who do you think you are, Joey Tribiani??

(anyone know the specific reference?)

And congrats on the success of the show!  Hopefully, today's will be just as successful...if not more!

It was in the more BRUMAL days of November that Chuck's LUMBAR muscles would start to ache, a condition that would last until late March.

Good morning, all!  I am gearing up for several days of madness, beginning with Dylan's move this afternoon.  I had a wonderful meeting yesterday with Andy Monroe, composer and lyricist for THE TRAGIC AND HORRIBLE LIFE OF THE SINGING NUN, and I will definitely be involved with it.  The festival is also doing THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, which is near and dear to my (and BK's) heart, and I've got my fingers crossed that both shows get picked up for something grand.

This morning, I am off to Toyland.

Sunday morning greetings!  My wiggy (from the antibiotics) stomach woke me up at 6:30, so I've been puttering for a couple of hours.  

DH Richard will be home this afternoon from his week in Wisconsin . :D

I am intrigued and fascinated and reticient about THE TRAGIC AND HORRIBLE LIFE OF THE SINGING NUN....

Wow!  A great Courts Show AND a terrific Cabaret night!  Saturday was BKDAY in Southern California.  Congratulations!  As Miss Elizabeth Taylor said about everyone who shunned her when she married Eddie Fisher, and then fawned when she won the Oscar for BUTTERFIELD 8:  "There is no deodorant like success!"

Temps in the 90's yesterday (the theatre was HOT HOT HOT, but the show went well) - and the same for today and Monday!

Working today at the World of Wisdom....I hope I am not book continuously for six hours, but time will tell.

Will work on the Unseemly Trivia Contest when I get home.

I ordered THE LOVED ONE and HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING yesterday....and of course GRAND PRIX on Friday, so hopefully they will all be here sooner or later.

Yesterday I also got EIGHT BELOW about the dogs left to fend for themselves in the Antarctic....  Watched about half of it...I liked it.

Here, too, DR JRand!  I just walked to the end of our driveway for the newspapers and it's already stifling - very humid.

DR JRand55, it's very anti-Catholic, totally rude, and very funny.

Oy!  Would that I could, DR Elmore!  The other day, when I checked out a book titled 31 Days (about the first month of the Ford presidency), the young man behind the desk asked if that's when I was retiring.  And I said, "Don't I wish!"

Back for a tick.

LOL....sounds like just MY kind of show, DRELMORE.

Hi DR GINNY - it is terrible here as well....the heat/humidity that is.

Hopefully the A/C at the store is functioning properly.

DR MATTH - I would like to take you up on your offer to copy the copy of YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE I sent you.  That would be GREAT.  You can put it on a DVR or whatever....VHS would be fine as well.

When you can, let me know when it's ready and I'll send you my address....and make you something you may not have....  although I am not sure what that would be as yet....LOL.

Good morning!

We got some thunder in my neighborhood last night, but the rain passed me by completely. Not so with other sections of the county. I read in the newspaper this morning that 6,000 folks were without power last night after a storm moved through here. I got nothing; my yard is as brown as can be, but I'm not complaining. Brown yard = no mowing!

In the midst of a real heat wave here with no rain even in the forecast now and soaring temperatures throughout the week.

I'll start looking for it today. Since you made it for me, and I didn't make it myself, I didn't put a code number on it (don't ask; it's my filing system for homemade videotapes) and now I must find where I stored it. Be patient with me.

I'm looking forward to my Joan Crawford festival this afternoon. DANCING LADY will be first, and then A WOMAN'S FACE on laserdisc, I think. That should take me through the afternoon.

I'll watch TOO MANY GIRLS tonight since my TV shows don't start until 9 p.m.

Great news about Susan Egan's weekend cabaret. Hopefully, Heather MacRae's will go just as smoothly and be just as successful.
