I like Mr Taye Diggs - but the premise of that show seems boring to me.  I am watching TCM....sorry Mr Menzel.

Wasn't it only in the 50s and 60s that family fun equated to no fun for the kids?

No. They took us to get flu shots. My arm hurts.   :'(

We had quite a day at preschool today. I had to miss playground time (my favorite part of the day) because I "got" to help a four-year-old with major Attention Defecit Hyperactivity Disorder do his art project. Oy vey.

And then for lunch we had English muffin pizzas (blech), orange slices, and canned peas mixed with cooked broccoli. We ate the oranges. When three-year-old Katie saw what was on her plate, she started to cry.

If you're around preschoolers, a flu shot is a good idea.  I got mine last week, it won't hurt for long

Time to leave work.  I might (mind you, I said "might") record the new Taye Diggs show, but I'll definitely watch tonight's "Medium."  I don't have rehearsal, so I finally can go home and just watch TV and do nothing else...even though I could be doing something, like change all the door knobs, but I don't wanna. ;)

Skip's birthday is tomorrow.  He had said don't make a big deal of it tomorrow, since we're kind of celebrating it on Friday - but it somehow doesn't feel right not to do anything special on the day itself.

Good Health Vibes to all Dear Readers in Need!  Get well!  Feel better!
Y'all look great to me, at any rate!

Didn't watch any teevee tonight - the first wednesday in I don't know how long - but instead was seated comfortably at the Pittsburgh press screening of DreamWorks + Paramount's holiday feature: DREAMGIRLS.

My first reaction - Poor Martin Scorsese. . . . .

It is pouring down rain at the moment. We are under a tornado watch, and I can see why. It's really raining and very blustery out, too. Hopefully it won't last too long. The power has been flickering on and off a couple of times tonight.

I watched last night's 3 LBS. It was an OK show, but it seemed pretty generic to me. No one was really distinctive, and it doesn't look exciting enough to generate much buzz.

And looking at the ratings, it finished third in the time slot last night - 2 million viewers less than SMITH (the show it replaced) scored on its season premiere. Not a great sign.

Stanley Tucci did look absolutely magnificent when he stripped down to his boxer briefs in the scene in the locker room. The man is chiseled. Unluckily for me, there was a problem with the HD feed from CBS last night, and the local affiliate showed the program in standard definition.

The INHD channel has the rights to many 20th Century Fox films and shows them in HD. This morning, they showed STAR! and I recorded it. Yes, they're using the same print used for the DVD release with that brown wash on the image, but it did look quite stunning in HD. I only got through "N'Everything," so most of the really big numbers are still to come. Enjoyed seeing all that minute detail in the image.

BONES had a riveting and emotional story tonight as Temprance and Hodgins get buried alive in a car and must fight for their lives. A really tense episode that I thoroughly enjoyed. And since the perpitrator wasn't apprehended by the end of the hour, it probably means we haven't seen the last of him. I had my thoughts on who it might be, but I may have been way off base.

MEDIUM returned with a really puzzling and completely captivating case involving cartoons and an old love. I was loving every confusing minute of it and was happy that in typical MEDIUM fashion, all the weird dreams and visions tied together and made sense.

Made me realize how much I've been missing this show this season.

And Patricia Arquette's real-life husband, the magnificently handsome Thomas Jane, was the principal guest star on the show.

I did record DAY BREAK tonight, and best friend John called me after the show was over and said he liked it, so I'll see what I think about it tomorrow. Not planning any errands out tomorrow so I should have time to get to all these things I've recorded.

The rain has tapered off, so it might be a good time to go to bed.

Good night!

This was one of those "commercial" television evenings that had absolutely nothing that interested me.  So I scanned through a DVD of "Carefree" to do some research for an upcoming interview.  And then Kerry and I watched a compilation of just the "Opening credits and music" from a bunch of early Vitaphone/Warner Bros. movies.  My friend, pianist Peter Mintun, put them all together on a DVD for us, and it was very enjoyable.

Then I ate a Milano cookie.

And that's the truth !

Back from our designer run-through, which went pretty well, which I think surprised the designers.  Some energy and focus problems, but we have time to work all that stuff, and everyone is still getting used to playing our new space.

However, the evening had an emotional ending to it, which I've known was probably coming, but really didn't want it to.  We've had to make the decision to replace one of our actresses - a VERY difficult decision as a) I adore her, and I've really enjoyed working with her and she's a terrific actress, and b) it's going to be very potentially enervating for the company, as they, too, all adore her.  But it's become increasingly apparent that she was not going to be able to sing her role - she just can't hear the pitches consistently - one day she'll sort of get it, the next day she'll be completely off, and it just wasn't going to get better.   Worse, we'd never know and she'd never know whether it was going to be okay.  I talked to her about it a few days ago, and the real bottom line is, as difficult as this was for her, she did not want to get up in front of three hundred people and sing in the wrong key.

I'm off to eat now, and to ponder the replacement, which has to be swift.

I also really enjoyed (and missed) this show.  And have they ever shown Devalos' wife before?  I didn't even pick up that he was married.  Not that that matters, but it's nice to see some personal stories every once in a while, except that I didn't care how Scanlon's personal issues were depicted.
