Good morning!

Beautiful chilly winter day. Supposed to be warming into the 60s this afternoon. I'll be inside for most of the day.

I have always found THE RITZ on film kind of clunky. I'm glad it preserved Rita Moreno's Tony-winning performance, and I think the cast is wonderful, but it didn't quite have the flow or momentum I was expecting from a Richard Lester-directed farce.

I do agree that Treat Williams is wonderful. In fact, I've always thought he stole the picture from the other cast members.

Don't forget that there IS a new episode of HOUSE tonight following the Super Bowl. The TV schedule says it will start at 10:15, but, of course, that's just a guess-timate.

Naturally, I won't be watching the Super Bowl. I'm going to continue with SOUL FOOD today, but I'm going to try to sneak in LIFE OF BRIAN in the early evening if I can. I will need a break from that low-key drama they keep generating on SOUL FOOD.

I have something to say.

AAAAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

For some unknown reason, a lot of my "favorite sites" have disappeared from my Favorite Sites list.

They're gone, vanished, booted right off of the computer.

And I can't blame Jose, because his blog is one of the sites that has been booted, and I don't think he's quite nimble enough to boot himself.

So, I must spend much of my day before going to work reconstructing what I remember wanting on my favorites list.

Bleh.

Good morning, all! I set off another bomb this morning in the apartment at 8:30, and I've been in Toyland since 9, finessing what I've written on LADY OF THE SLIPPER so far. At 2:45 I'm meeting my friend Tara to see CLOVERFIELD. Then, I shall return home, air out the apartment and tidy up.

I will be E&T most of tomorrow, although I may come down to the office later in the afternoon and cart the computer back home. I expect UPS to bring my new storage bins and Staples should be delivering another filing cabinet. I want to be there for their deliveries since I've been stressing out my super at bit with my numerous trash bags in the past 19 days and I don't want to bother him any more than necessary.

THE RITZ onstage was one of the funniest plays I've ever seen, and I'm happy the film kept a lot of the original cast; Steve Collins was replaced by Treat Williams, who was fine, and I've forgotten who played the Kaye Ballard role onstage, where I think it worked better as a farce since it was really about the doors and the timing. Rita Moreno's performance was one of the greatest I've ever seen onstage, and I'm delighted it's preserved on film. I like the film a lot.

Just something I've known about for a while.

Good morning all...looks to be a busy day ahead for me...mom e-mailed me to say she needs to go to Best Buy for new speakers for her new computer...Dog Bosco is going to go and visit one of my former co-workers...my buddy Jim and I will be eating someplace at some point today once he returns from a visit to Seattle...and all I really want to do today is sit on the couch and veg in front of the TV!!

I did forget to mention that while babysitting last night, little 5 year old Taylor loved the movie THE DOLLY SISTERS, although she did think that Betty Grable and John Payne kissed much too often. She insisted we watch it a second time.

Well, I guess I'll head down now and get laundry ready for washing. Then, I'll start looking around the kitchen to prepare something for lunch.

Here is a picture of my Great Grandfather Mathew Stanley and his lovely wife Effie.  
They had three children: Irene, Eldon, and Horton (my grandfather).  Effie passed away shortly after my grandfather was born - and the children were sent out to different relatives unless needed on the farm.

Thanks, td! So far, so great!

My lovely producer had lilies and a hydrangea waiting for me in the editing room. I will be able to plant that to replace some of the ones we lost during the drought.
