This now begs the question - how many of us have seen the original painting La Grande Jatte?  Not a reproduction, the real thing?

We've got Singdaw, Dan (the Man), myself and der Brucer (of course).  That's four, so far.

I think I'm number five...if I counted correctly. ::) During my last year at Western Washington University (1989), the Concert Choir was invited to perform at the National Music Educator's Association conference in Indiana.  When that was finished, we drove from Indiana up to Chicago (stopping along the way for concerts at some high schools) and we had half a day to ourselves in Chicago.  Several of us went to the Art Institute of Chicago and I stood there at the painting for a couple of hours.  One of the guys in our group actually took a picture of me standing in front of the actual painting, but he never made me a copy!  Damn him!  Damn him to hell!!  But I was there (a Pacific Overtures reference ;)).

I got a huge box of CDs from the Kritzerland warehouse today.  Thanks, BK, I think you even threw in a couple we didn't order, but that's just fine.  I dropped your cheque in a mailbox on the streets of downtown Cincinnati Saturday afternoon.  I don't think it had any weekend pick-ups, so it was probably collected today, which means you oughta get it sometime before the end of the week.

Hi all!  I might have good news today.  The doctors came in and found Mom to be quite alert.  They mentioned that she might (Mind you might) be allowed to go home.  Not today but soon.

I told them what the doctor said at the hospital--that she only had 3 days tops but this doctor said that might not be so.  She said that others have what Mom has and have lived for a year or more.

What I'm planning on doing is bringing her walker so she can prove that she can get around so that she can prove she can go home.

Needless to say, my hopes are going up and down.  I don't know what to believe or what to really think.  

I had to stop there because the phone rang and then Mom had some people come to check her.

That's cautiously optimistic news, Danise!!

DR Danise, I'm so glad to hear that there is potentially good news.

Maybe the visit from Bear did the trick and will give her a little more time with you.

Thoroughly shocked by Brantley's review of LEGALLY BLONDE.  I had felt sure that this would be one of those exceptions, a show that's well-regarded despite a disappointing score.  And the Times proofers couldn't even spell the name of the (I thought) wonderfully gifted bookwriter of Legally Blonde, the inspired Heather Hach (they spelled it Hatch in the print edition, at least).  Ms. Hach has I think the potential to be a great force in musical comedy as a bookwriter, assuming the work was basically hers and not the director's, but I suspect after that treatment from the Ny Times, she may pick herself up and go back to Hollywood.  That would be theater's loss, IMHO.  Best book of  a new musical I've seen since SPELLING BEE, but I guess that's not the consensus.

I did like that Dali painting of THE LAST SUPPER.  I actually bought a Dai print at an art auction one time, but they told me it was one of his lesser known works

The original has a very prominent position in our National Museum of Art.

I don't know why, but I am feeling wholly out of sorts today.

I blame Jose.

But I'll bitch-slap anyone who wishes to stand in for him.

About 10 to 20 for tax evasion, if I recall correctly!

Nope.  She was on TAD  (The Ambassador's Daughter on TCM--in which, I might add, she proved a trooper.  If I were she, I would have been playing my scenes in that movie with a glum expression on my face, counting the number of lines that Olivia Dehavilland had while I was sitting there doing nothing but waiting for the next break.)
