I did hear the sounds of Tony Perkins wafting up from the rear of the house - (Greenwillow, perhaps?)

For those who like to be prepared:

Warning - there will be a KIMMELRANT to come:

LATIMES

Quote
Beginning in May 2009, all new telephone numbers issued in the 818 area will take a 747 area code. Customers who already have 818 telephone numbers will be allowed to keep them, however, they and everyone else in the zone will be required to dial 11 digits to make a local call -- even if they're calling the house next door.

Oh yes, dear readers, we shall be treated to a royal KIMMELRANT.

A few years ago, that was proposed here in Washington.  It didn't happen...at least, not yet. ::)

From everything we heard and saw, "Billy Elliott" will be the show to beat in 2009 for the Tony. (The 2008 winner should be "Young Frankenstein.")

Ruby Washington/The New York Times
“Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps,” is migrating five blocks to the Cort Theater from the American Airlines Theater. It is one of two hit Broadway plays to move on the same day.


Ruby Washington/The New York Times

The “August” move will cost $650,000.

NYTIMES


Quote

The Shows Must Go On, but Not Until They Change Theaters

...
Getting from Point A to Point B has always been daunting in Manhattan, but rarely has any New York moving van saga been as operatic as the simultaneous transfer of two hit Broadway plays to new theaters on the same day.

This year’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “August: Osage County,” a sprawling drama about a dysfunctional family inhabiting a rambling Oklahoma home, is moving to the Music Box Theater from the Imperial Theater next door. And “Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps,” a witty, quick-change take on the 1935 movie thriller, is migrating five blocks to the Cort Theater from the American Airlines Theater.

The Broadway-to-Broadway transfer of even one play is more rare than a total solar eclipse. According to the Broadway League, the last time was nearly eight years ago when “Waiting in the Wings,” starring Rosemary Harris and Lauren Bacall, segued from the Walter Kerr to the Eugene O’Neill in May 2000.

But the strange coincidence of two plays transferring on the same day “is almost stratospheric,” said Charlotte St. Martin, the executive director of the Broadway League.

In both cases, their theaters had been booked for other shows; but because they were unexpected hits, their producers decided that the expense of a transfer was worth the gamble.

Because “39 Steps” has only four onstage actors in a seemingly bare-bones set, and is moving only to 48th Street from 43rd street, its transfer might be expected to require little more than a van and something of a plan. And since “August” is literally moving to the playhouse next door — to 239 West 45th Street from 249 West 45th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues — it might appear that stagehands could move the show with a few handcarts and a dolly or two.

But no. In all, the two shows will employ more than 60 stagehands, carpenters, electricians, prop people, sound technicians, teamsters and wardrobe workers toiling for more than a week, transporting 90,000 pounds of sets and equipment in 27 trucks, including four tractor trailers.

And the total moving bill for both shows? In excess of $1.25 million.

Yes, I have awakened, in all my "Fairieness!"   :)

Gentle Knight was pricking on the plaine,
    Y cladd in mightie armes and siluer shielde,
    Wherein old dints of deepe wounds did remaine,
    The cruell markes of many' a bloudy fielde;
    Yet armes till that time did he neuer wield:
    His angry steede did chide his foming bitt,
    As much disdayning to the curbe to yield:
    Full iolly knight he seemd, and faire did sitt,
As one for knightly giusts and fierce encounters fitt.

But on his brest a bloudie Crosse he bore,
    The deare remembrance of his dying Lord,
    For whose sweete sake that glorious badge he wore,
    And dead as liuing euer him ador'd:
    Vpon his shield the like was also scor'd,
    For soueraine hope, which in his helpe he had:
    Right faithfull true he was in deede and word,
    But of his cheere did seeme too solemne sad;
Yet nothing did he dread, but euer was ydrad.

Vpon a great aduenture he was bond,
    That greatest Gloriana to him gaue,
    That greatest Glorious Queene of Faerie lond,
    To winne him worship, and her grace to haue,
    Which of all earthly things he most did craue;
    And euer as he rode, his hart did earne
    To proue his puissance in battell braue
    Vpon his foe, and his new force to learne;
Vpon his foe, a Dragon horrible and stearne.

to DR George![/size][/color]

Thanks!  I was a bit industrious last night and I hope that it'll inspire me to continue in the morning and clean my TV room (it really needs it).  Anyway, I swapped out my kitchen faucet...again.  I got the first faucet for my new place before I actually moved in, in October 2006.  It had a chrome finish.  A couple of months ago, I finally decided to install it, but it turns out that it didn't really fit.  The counter behind it was too close and the faucet couldn't be turned on all the way.  Since it had been too long ago to get a refund or even exchange it, I went to Home Depot to get another one.  They had two that would fit and were the same style, but different colors/finishes.  However, only had the one white one in stock and that didn't really match.  Here's a picture (and you can see how close the faucet is to the counter right behind it :P):

Even though it didn't match, I ended up buying the white one because I needed a working faucet and I wasn't going to put back the original...I threw it out before I knew that the new chrome faucet wouldn't fit.  Well, they finally got the nickel finish faucets in stock and a couple of weeks ago, I bought one!  But what to do with the original chrome and the now unnecessary white finish faucet?  It turns out that my parents' rental house needed a new faucet and the chrome one was perfect for that!  I put that in on Sunday.  Also, my parents have a white sink in their home (where I grew up) and they'll take that!  It's perfect for them.  So last night, I removed the white faucet from my sink and put in the nickel finish faucet.  Here's a picture of that:



I'm going to install the white faucet in my parents' house on Sunday. ;D

Happy News in the land of McLaughlin and Morelli. It means we will be separated from the end of July through the middle of October but it's for a good reason.

Anthony got a job!!!

He will be in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin at

The Fireside Dinner Theatre

playing Twimble and Womper  in HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING.

He starts rehearsal August 4th and runs from August 22nd through October 19th.

He played the role of Finch in HTSIBWRT back in High School a few years  (;)) ago and now he's moved up to character roles. At least it's a part.

He may finally get to

The House on the Rock

while he's there. He has two days off (Monday and Tuesday). People have recommended seeing THOTR but in all our trips to Minneapolis we never had time for a side trip. It's about 90 minutes from Fireside and he will be driving out to Wisconsin so he will probably see the sight.

I hope I can get out to see the show. It doesn't come at a good time for my work schedule but I may be able to carve out a day or two and fly to Madison to see him. The theatre is about 40 minutes from there.

And in other news, today I will listen to Evening Primrose. Tonight we will watch our Britcoms. Tomorrow Anthony will perform in his dance class salon (I will be present with a video camera) and Sunday we will be attending a 40th birthday party for one of Anthony's cousins.

That is our weekend in a nutshell.
