It is finals week here at NDSU and the library since last week has been bedlam to say the least. LOTS of books coming back, students studying, stressed out students and other assorted mayhem to boot.

This, I don't miss. Our end-of-the-year rush at preschool was making sure we got through the whole alphabet.

Isn't it funny - when I read the post about Curtis Harrington I immediately drafted a response about Curtis Hansen - I'd just finished watching The Silent Partner, which Hansen wrote, and I thought oh the irony.  And then, of course, I realized the IRONY - different person altogether.  Mr. Harrington lived to the ripe old age of 78.

I believe I read somewhere that Lynn Ahrens was the writer of the "What would you do for a Klondike bar?' jingle

From Theatre Mania Interview:

Quote
I met someone who was starting a jingle company and I ended up writing a lot of commercials. Two of them are still in use: 'What would you do for a Klondike Bar?' and 'Bounty, the quicker picker upper.' That's me singing them, too!"

I have found it is very easy for animals to learn to use pet doors. We have two neighborhood cats that just walk right in and make themselves at home.

I hate to tell you this, but they aren't "neighborhood" cats. They are OUR cats and have been for quite some time.

Well, they didn't start out that way! They are just ours now because they don't go away.

He spends time at someone else's house too. Over near Dead Jean's.

I have been relaying the dialogue to DP Colin.

He is very interested in the world of domestic relationships in Phoenix.

I'm about to post some mail. I hope I can concentrate on the task at hand. So much to think about.

I had lettuce and carrots for dinner. Very healthy, not that exciting.

tomorrow I may just get the urge to get some Naan from up the street, but it is an annoying walk, and it is too darn hot.
