I hope you mean Kritzer Time.  And nothing will cancel tomorrow night.  I start cooking tonight.

Happiest of birthdays to my friends Craig and WFO. I hope they're wonderful, as are your holidays.

I can't write much...I'm sneaking this post while "working." I'm leaving for home straight from work, so I won't be able to post until possibly tomorrow. In case I don't get to the computer before the actual day, let me wish all of you a very happy holiday!

Next time you hear from me, I'll be supping on fried chicken! YAY!

Have a great trip Jason! Eat some mashed potoatoes (with lots of gravy) and some chicken gizzard for me!

Jennifer, don't be sad, be glad!!!!!  :D

Regarding the joint credit of Edith Head and Yvonne Wood, it's possible that Head had a clause in her contract that said she would get billing for every Paramount film no matter who did the actual work.  This was quite common during the time when the studios ruled Hollywood.

Happy birthday, Craig, WFO, and Bruce's bro!!! Eat, drink, and be merry!

Good vibes to DR Jennifer...I know what you mean, so here are some happy vibes! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ugh, must go call the "boss," who doesn't pay me yet, so technically, he can't boss me around, right? I will *not* go into work today. No. I refuse to do so. My throat is bothering me. I am probably one of the biggest hypochondriacs, and everytime my throat hurts and my speaking voice is even the least bit
hoarse, I think, "AAH vocal nodes!" I freak out about it. So yeah. I'm pretty sure this is something cold-related...make it stop! :(

-Glad to hear that the cookies are going over so well.  Truly one of my favorite recipes.  I have another variation I try every now and then, and I'll see about sending you a batch of those ones too sometime.

Oh, so since I'm a "Sr. Member" now does this mean I can sit at the Big Table?  Or does this just mean I get my 10% discount at Gelson's?  ;)

No, but you might get a 5% discount at Howard Johnson's?

Happy birthdays to the Actualized Essences of WFO, Craig, and BOB (Brother of Bruce).

I passed my written CA Drivers' Test yesterday! Three cheers for Panni/Anna. Several people in front of me in line did NOT pass, no sir. And I thought I might not either - because very little of what I had actually read in my study booklet was on the test . And I was only allowed 3 mistakes before the ignominy of utter failure. How the hell do I know what the blood alcohol level is before you're considered blotto in CA? (Yes, I would've known had I read the whole booklet - but it was SO boring). I got perfect marks on all the practice tests, so I thought I knew it all - fool that I am. Anyway, through some lucky guesses and some lucky logic - I got only one wrong. I made the mistake of telling them what I actually do instead of what I SHOULD do when making a right turn. I personally get into any available lane. Of course, one should get into the lane nearest the curb. Shouldn't they have given me the point for being so honest? Anyway, that was my sole error on the exam. I now have CA plates and will soon receive in the mail my CA Drivers License. There was even an earthquake to mark the occasion.

How is Roller, DR Jay?

To clarify the Right Turn - I, of course, meant that I get into any available lane AFTER making the turn. (But shouldn't. Wrong, wrong, wrong!)

I was kind of wondering about that Panni! LOL! I was picturing you wiping out 2 lanes of traffic trying to make that right turn onto Ventura Blvd.!

Congratulations on passing your test, DR Panni/Anna!

Roller is doing better.  The vet is still not sure what's wrong.  Could be a heart problem, or perhaps pneumonia.  He's still at the vet for IV fluids, meds and observation.  I took him for a little walk this morning and he's still not himself.

Dear DR JRand: Great pic of Crawford.  This is the first time it's ever occurred to me that Hugh Jackman's hair in the X-Men flicks is based on hers!

Greetings from Hawaii!!!
I'm afraid I'm likely to be E&T for the next three weeks or so.  I will try to check in once in a while, but catching up on posts might be well nigh impossible.
Amazing..I went from Wenatchee WA, where the high temp was somewhere in the mid 30's, to Honolulu, where I heard someone say (with a straight face) that it had "cooled down tonight to about 72"  Bring on the tank tops!  
Happy birthday to all those who happen to be celebrating birthdays!!!
Merry Christmas to all those who happen to be celebrating Christmas!!
And Happy New Year to everyone, whether they celebrate it or not :)

Hawaii???  Well, you know what happens to errant and truant people who bask in the sun in Hawaii for three weeks.  And when it happens we shall laugh and laugh and jump about like diet sprites.

Is that a threat, dear bk? :)  
If it makes you feel any better, there is no sun to bask in at the moment.  There are clouds to bask in.  Why one never basks in clouds I do not know.  So today I shall bask in clouds.  And by the way, how do diet sprites jump exactly?

I'm ba-ack... from the Post Office, that is... And what a wonderful trip it was!

Again, there was really no line to speak of, and all the extra helpers were in the line area helping people fill out the right forms, answer questions, directing them to the correct counter, etc.  Of course, this time, however, there were only about three "windows" open - which eventually became two while I was there - but the line still moved, and no one really seemed harried or annoyed.

After my five or so minute wait in line, I walked up to the window and placed my parcel and forms on the counter.  "Oh, Australia...," the man behind the counter said.  It turns out that he has a step mother and two step-siblings (one brother, one sister), who moved to Australia a few years ago (with his father), and he has not kept in touch with them as well as he should.  So, he proceeded to thank me for being his first customer for the day (they were in the middle of shift changes), and for reminding him that he should at least call them this Christmas and wish them well.  He told me his tale as he went about checking my forms, printing off my postage and accepting my payment - no real hold up in the line.  And as he wished me, "Merry Christmas," he extended his hand for a hand shake.  I wished him a Merry Christmas, too, as I shook his hand.  I walked out of the Post Office smiling.  :D

*And, yes, DR Tomovoz, you should have a small parcel from me by the New Year, if not shortly afterwards.

-And it still puzzles me with the way the USPS handles overseas mail.  By sending it "Economy", the average post time (air mail) is listed as 4-7 days.  However, if I had sent it "Priority", it would have taken 10-12 days - and cost more than twice as much!?!?!  Now, if I had wanted to send it Parcel Post, it would have taken anywhere from 4-6 WEEKS - and would have cost THREE times as much as "Economy" air mail - well, I guess you would pay more for a longer voyage.  I guess for larger, heavier packages it might make a difference, but when the send options came up on the screen, it took a moment or two to decipher.

Oh - so now it's "two weeks and three days".... That's much better.  ;)

Well, now I'm just chartreuse.. no longer green...

Where are you staying?  Will you be island hopping?  Do you have friends over there?  Is it a true vacation/break?  Or do you have some work to do while you're over there too?

*One of my biggest regrets is never visiting my brother in Hawaii while he was stationed there with the Coast Guard.  His housing was right on the water too!  One of these days I'll make the stop.
