That's it?  George, the future of the civilized world depends on us avoiding an all-time low today; and all you can say is, "And one for Mahler!"

Well, I'm off for now.  I have to take a shower and make food to bring to the pot-luck.  Until later!

My former intern Dylan has now moved out.  I am in the midst of reorganizing the apartment:  the laundry is in, the bathroom cleaned and mopped, and my living space reorganized in case DR MBarnum decides to invade NYC in October.

I have to say that, while I appreciated Dylan's being around for the three weeks I was away, I'm not sorry he's gone.  Some people learn New York is not the place they're meant to be, and Dylan learned that by the end of June.  Unfortunately, he neither used his time here constructively nor financially to his advantage, and I got burned.  I wish him well, but I cannot help him achieve that.

At least now I can drag out the VCR again!

I'm thinking about the possibilities of a New York Based sitcom -  all the NY Hainsies and/or Kimlets dwelling in the same apartment block with "guests" appearing every now and again from the NW, West, Midwest etc. Perhaps even an overseas visitor.  Even room there for the just passing through and sometimes posters - new and old.  How is Jason I wonder.

Perhaps even a local eatery/coffee/bar establishment.

A mixture of Queer as Folk and Friends I guess.

Noticed that the telemovie "Dash and Lili" is on here in the wee small hours. Have any DRs seen it - recommend?  a more realistic view I guess than "Julia" (Which I like very much).

Hello all.  We've had a full weekend thus far.  Started yesterday by meeting my friend who was in town for a training conference for lunch and a visit to the flea market.  Came home rest for a while and then went out to dinner with Rodzinski's sis.  We then headed over to a karaoke bar where we were joined by DR Jose and some other friends.  It was a late night.

This morning I got up to bid my friend farewell before he headed back to Boston.  Then went back to sleep until noon when we all got up to head over to Jose's for brunch.  All I have to say is the man can cook!  After gorging ourselves on biscuits and gravy and cheesy hashbrown casserole, we gorged ourselves on reality tv shows from last week.  A lovely time was had by all.

Now we're back at home resting.

Radio is playing Rod Stewart's "Where or When" at the moment.  I'm not sure which is the worse - maybe Barry Manilow. (OzDerek would not have been pleased with that comment!).

Horses for courses.  I'm very much a Linda Ronstadt fan.  Her new CD is released in a week or so.

"Carnivale" Season 2 - gets its release this week at long last.

Well, this will not do.  BK will be returning home, probably within the hour, and even a frenzy would not put us at the level we should be.

It was a beautiful day here in Tacoma.  The temperature was in the mid-seventies.  As the week progresses, the temperature will continue to climb until we reach the 90s next weekend.  Angel will not be happy.  When it gets too hot for her, she keeps looking at me as if it is my fault the heat has been turned up.

Elmore, Mike Barnum and I have decided to move in with you for a few (?) months, until we decide if we want to stay in New York.

Tomovoz and Colin may decide to stay, too.

Back from the show - what IS going on here today?  Let's get some postin' goin' on because I do NOT want a new all-time low just because I wasn't here to whip everyone into a lather.  Let's get some frenzies goin' on or I shall not divulge any information about today's show.  I will say it was much more sparsely attended than yesterday, but I did almost as much business, which was great.

I have returned from my daily (almost) trip to the post Office.  A surprise parcel from a Frenchman on holiday. A Cd of songs from the wonderful Caterina Valente.

Last night I watched  ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.  I love Abbott and Costello, but this one is a real clunker.  In one scene, Dracula (Yes, Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney, Jr. are also in it) seduces the evil female doctor and then bites her on the neck.  The whole scene is filmed with them both standing in front of a mirror, in which both of them are refelcted.

Just listening to "Mr Bojangles" IMHO Jerry Jeff Walker's is still the best version. I'm fine with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's version but have never really liked the one by Sammy Dvs Jnr.

Hey!  It's a post.

And of such things -- "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today" Neil Diamond's version is nearly as bad as that by Miss Midler.

Here is a question: In 1776, does the actress who plays Mrs. Jefferson get paid as much as the actors who perform for the whole show?

Back from an insanely insane jog - at four-thirty it's still 100 degrees.  Unbelievably unbelievable.  Well, must get some foodstuffs and sit on my couch like so much fish.
