Well, you've read the notes, the notes were pithy and yet piquant, and now it is time for you to post until the incommunicado cows come home.

Before I went on my diet, I had quite a bit of interlard.

Vixmom is in the house.... and trying to catch up on all that happened since I left.  Please do email me, somebody, if I have missed any really important events, deaths, marriages, births, new jobs etc .

Good morning, all! I have a full day planned: a bit of Christmas arrangng, a bit of personal shopping, a movie with our DR Ginny, and then dinner with my friends, Alan, Liliane, and their daughter Julie.  I would guess that their older daughter is back to Ohio State University.

In the past two weeks over 40 new members have signed up for this site, and only DR singingnymph is remotely posting.  I woud suggest, Dear Friend BK, that rather than attacking the acolytes as wussburgers, these peculiar- perhaps lurking, perhaps stalking - new members be attacked in PMs for their covert activities.

Perhaps each of us DRs should contact 3-5 newbies, cordially welcome them to the party that is HHW, and encourage them to contribute.

Gee...I've only been here a short time and I've already seen this word!

I think I posited at the time that it is when you add Crisco® to your pancake batter.

My DH thinks it is the intermediary step in rendering pig fat: beyond bacon and soon to be suet. (He's so alliterative!)

Sunday morning greetings!  Yes, DR Elmore and I are going to a noon-ish movie, maybe do a little shopping, and maybe have some Graters ice cream.

Hi, DR Vixmom!  We sure miss you around here.

I looked it up:

interlard \in-tuhr-LARD\, transitive verb:
 To insert between; to mix or mingle; especially, to introduce something foreign or irrelevant into; as, "to interlard a conversation with oaths or allusions."

I guess Crisco in pancake batter could work as an example!

Speaking of lard, one of my favorite experiences of my teen years involved lard, so i repeat it in honor of the lard part of the word of the day:

I worked at a cotton candy stand in Coney Island, just two blocks from my home, and couldn't quite get the handle on making the cotton candy look pretty, so they put me on the Belgian waffle station, making waffles from scratch.  We made up all kinds of stories to tell customers about the origin of the Belgian waffle as we made a fresh, almost from scratch waffle for the customer.  The one thing that we had to hide was that we were making them with lard, so we were taught how to artfully keep the lard under the counter, wipe a brush along the lard, and then brush the waffle iron with the lard before pouring the batter into the waffle iron.  If anyone asked, we had to say it was made with lard rather than butter, but maybe three people actually asked what that fatty substance was.

"Those darn people at CocaCola have been at it again!" shrieked Joan.  "Somehow, they've managed to INTERLARD our entire DARN LITER bottle shipment with their darn swooshy-wave logo!  Darn them all to heck!!!"

(I know, I know, the real Joan would never have said "darn," but the word for the day isn't INTERLAMD.)

My Hungarian born grandfather, who was a wonderful cook, used to render pork lard for cooking.  All of his meals were absolutely delicious. He was also a true believer in heavy cream, sour cream and  butter in all his cooking.  He always had a large garden including one each of a pear, cherry and peach tree.  he would can his own vegetable and fruits. He lived to be 86, but it wasn't long enough in my opinion.. I still miss him.

Another beautiful, cold autumn day. Not going to get out of the 50s again, but it's still just gorgeous outside for this time of year.

bk, I hope you can thoroughly enjoy your mostly day off. You always stay so busy with so many projects in various states of preparation that I hope you can just turn everything off that's remotely business-related and relax.

When I was working two jobs and also doing theater a lot more regularly than I do now, I used to call these "brain recuperation days."

Enjoy yours!

Because I'll be heading out later this afternoon to do the installation/calibration of my friend's new HDTV, I'll be posting at odder times than usual today. Don't want to be totally E&T after this morning's session, so I'll be on the forum at various intervals during the day.

Has anyone seen BORAT yet? A friend has suggested he might want to see it this week at some point, and I'm kind of wishy-washy on the matter.

Delighted to read that the new CAROUSEL looks so good. I'm looking forward to receiving it, hopefully, this week along with the new issues of THE KING & I and FLOWER DRUM SONG.

I passed on SOUTH PACIFIC for the moment. I love the score, but it's my least favorite of the R&H movies, and I doubt I've watched the non-anamorphic DVD I already have more than twice.

Three generations of my family (ok 6 people, but they are from 3 generations) went to STRIKING 12 at the Fairmont Opera House last night.  It will be at the Daryl Roth Theatre in Union Square starting on Tuesday. There were raves from all - even the ones who didn't want to go. So much so that they called me immediately after the show to tell me what I missed, something they rarely do.  So I am passing on their recommendation to see it to anyone interested. Here's the website again http://www.striking12.com/

Can't find the BRAIN FROM PLANET X site on MySpace!  If anyone has a link.

Sunday....and I have to work.  

Oh well.  Everyone enjoy the day.

MR BK  didn't you say you had A DISTANT TRUMPET to watch?

I liked Mr Arthur Hill....but Owen Marshall was such a cheat.  He always won cases with useless, silly information that we were NEVER given and that should have been obvious from the beginning....

So, how is it that a movie like The Chairman gets the royal treatment & a gem like People Will Talk gets chopped to "full screen" & put in the flimsiest dvd box made?

Cillaliz & Edisauris, the girls and boys are darling.  TPunks are cuties too.

George-Nice to know Ebonie is doing well, not that I didn’t expect it.  Our cats have always adjusted nicely to their new homes.  Their people are what they want most of all.

Vixmom I’m very sorry you hate your job.  Have you thoughts of returning to your previous one, if that’s possible?
