Welcome thirteen GUESTS.  I guess our GUESTS aren't out brunching and lunching and generally being a bunch of mothers.

I finally finished ALL my laundry and put it all away. After my shopping trip yesterday, one part of my closet could belong to Elle Woods, lol.  Perhaps I should dye my hair blonde and get a little dog that fits in a purse

Good Evening!

Today's trek:

Walked over to Broadway.
Took the 1 Train down to 103rd Street.
Walked down Broadway to 74th.
*I almost stood in the loooooooong line at Grom - the new gelato place - but decided to head on over to Levain instead.  Oh..
Walked over to Levain, picked up some dessert for tonight - we're having a mini "Survivor" finale gathering tonight here at the apartment.
Walked back up Broadway to 120th.
Hopped on the M 4 Bus.
Got off at 135th - only because the bus was heading back to the yard.  "Last stop!"
Walked up to 145th.
Bought a spicy pork tamale.
Walked back over to St. Nicholas.
And now I'm home.

:)

A truly gorgeous day, and just perfect for a stroll up and down the Upper West Side.

For mothers day I went with my mother to view an exibit she has been wanting to see at the Armory, 145 N. Raymond Ave., Old Pasadena
March 25 May 13
Installations, mixed media, photography and more, exploring the relationship between artistic and medical world views.

It was small, but interesting.

I then treated her to In-N-out, which she enjoyed very much.

Oh, and here's the website for Grom.  Apparently, the store just opened a few weeks ago - and they gave away free gelato!  How come I did not know about this?!?!?  -Well, apparently, the lines were about two hours deeps at times, so...

I actually passed it the other day, and had some of their Crema di Grom - basically vanilla with chocolate and crushed biscotti - and some of their Almond(!) Granita.  The gelato was very, very, very good.  And the almond granita was spectacular - it was like eating crushed, frozen, slushy almonds.

The pricing is a bit on the high side - a small(!) is just under $5.00, but from all accounts - my own included - it's well worth the splurge.

No, I'm just so so, but I appreciae the compliment.

If you all knew how much I detest transcribing something and how poorly I do it, then you could truly appreciate how wonderfully DR Jose helped me out.  His ear, along with those Russian hands, is amazing.  I would never have had the correct chords as quickly if it weren't for him.  I'm quite honored to have made such good friends as I have on this site.

Who'da thunk it?

You're most welcome.




Now, where's my margarita?!?!?

I picked up elmore's chart - lovely to look at, as always.  I think I only had to adjust about four chords, which were, admittedly, hard to hear on the recording.

Whew!

Had a lovelier than lovely meeting with The Party Animals folks.  Our next show is June 10 at the Avalon, which was formerly the El Capitan Theater on Vine, and also was formerly the Hollywood Palace, where Merv Griffin used to tape his show.  It's now quite a popular club and if this works out and draws big crowds for the two shows that day, then we may well have found our regular LA home.

Back from spending the afternoon and early evening with my mother.  We dropped DS Rob back at UC and then headed to Music Hall.  The first half was all orchestra:

Overture to Candide
Selections from West Side Story
March from The Longest Day
"Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton
Armed Forces Salute
"Battle Hymn of the Republic

Those last 5 numbers were preceeded by Maestro Kunzel's shameless plug for his conducting of the National Memorial Day Concert, 2 weeks from tonight, which we're all to watch on WCET, Channel 48, Cincinnati.

DRs Elmore and Jose were pretty much right about Bebe's line-up:

After the orchestra played the All That Jazz Overture, she came out and did:

"All That Jazz"
"Saga of Jenny" from Lady in the Dark
"I'm a Stranger Here Myself" from One Touch of Venus
"Razzle Dazzle" from Chicago
"Class" from Chicago which some of the Cincinnati blue-hairs sitting near us did NOT appreciate
"A Quiet Thing" from Flora, the Red Menace
"How Lucky Can You Get" from Funny Lady
"Je ne t'Aime Pas"
"Surabaya Johnny" from Happy End
"The World Goes 'Round" from And the World Goes 'Round

Her encore was "Ring Them Bells," which I saw performed by Liza Minnelli on the very same stage about 30 years ago.

There was absolutely NO RAPPORT between Miss Neuwirth and Maestro Kunzel.  When DH Richard and I saw Kristin Chenoweth with the Pops a couple of years ago, they had a real love affair going on, but there was no interaction at all today.  She was complaining of a cold, but I suspect she might have been experiencing some SW Ohio sinus difficulty.

Ms Neuwirth has a love affair going on with nobody onstage; she's a tough cookie and mean as a snake.  Kunzel probably hated her.

I wish that things were different and I could say come on over and vist, DR Ben and DH Ant.  I would dearly love to see you both but since I'm not 100% sure as to where I'll be at any given moment......

Next time for sure!
