Some shows not on CD that I would like to see on CD:

The Last Sweet Days of Isaac
Philemon
Man of LaMancha [complete original London cast]
Ilya Darling [promised to be coming soon]
Gospel at Colonnus
Evening Primrose  [ oops!  We've got that one now!  ;) ]

Gospel at Colonus is available on CD:



Alas, I don't think the PBS Great Performances broadcast has ever made the transition from VHS to DVD.


*I remember seeing this at Arena Stage during it's premiere tour. Truly one of the most unexpectedly powerful and awesome theatrical experiences I've ever had.

It is a shame that BK already has the opening night gifts.  I am sure that those Squirrel lamp How-to Books would be greatly appreciated.  Oh well.

Why not make lamps for the whole cast?

We got a flower delivery with the message

"Welcome, Priscilla!  Happy Birthday, Fred!  Happy Derby day, DRs!!!"

But no signature.  I have a hunch I know who they're from, but can anyone confirm?

My sister and her husband went out last night. So it was just me and my 2 1/2 yr old niece.

She really is something. She is so talkative and inquisitive. It seems crazy for her age.

Anyhow i brought over some supplies so we could work on a mother's day card for my sister (she really loves scrapbooking and making cards).

So she really did the card herself. She pulled off all the stickers and put them where she wanted them. The only thing i did was spell happy mother's day. But she placed all the letters on the page.

When she was almost done she decided she wanted to draw on the card with a gel pen. I looked everywhere in my sister's computer/scrapbooking room but could not find them.

So megan decides that she will help me find them. She walks to the kitchen and goes to look on the table with the bread. And guess what?  there is one gel pen there. She grabs it. ANd is so proud of herself, "i found it auntie, i found it".  ANd she proceeded to finish the card.

DR Edi (welcome back, BTW - I missed you!) - I'm leaning towards driving and will have at least one elderly relative with me (my mother).  Plans are still very uncertain, but I'll keep you posted.

Second part of the story.

So the card is in the envelope and she is trying to decide where to put it.

I ask her if she has any ideas. And she says "i don't know what my ideas are."

Then she walks down the stairs to the front door and proceeds to try to shove it through the mail slot. :)

She wanted to put it in the mail. But i told her that if she did that the mailman would take it away. She did not like that idea.

I asked if she wanted to put it at the bottom of her dress-up box. "no i do not like that idea". I asked if ehs wanted to put it in a drawer. nope she didn't like that. I asked if she wanted to put in in her room Nope.

She did not want me to take it. But when i asked if i should keep it in my purse. She accepted that.

Only thing is when she got up this morning she forgot she let me take it and was apparently looking for it!

Oh and last night 2 minutes after she made the card she told her mom on the phone that she made a card for her!  I told her it was a secret. So she whispered for the next few minutes!

I loved IN THE HEIGHTS and am very very glad that I got a ticket this afternoon.  I was glad that I speak Spanish. I don't know that you'd miss a lot if you didn't, but not knowing if your missing anything is sometimes bothersome.

Had a good time at the estate sales...well, the first one anyway...it was in a 50s ranch style house crammed with stuff...I bought several LPs @ $1 each, an old late 60s Barbie and dress (for $1), a round, red 1950s couch pillow for $5. I will go back first thing tomorrow when things are 1/2 price.

The second estate sale was in a grand old Victorian home...but all of the items were newer and overpriced. The house was neat, however, even if it was painted in some wild colors.

Heading down now to check the mail and then get lunch started.

WBBL.

At least you do not have anxious wildlife to whom Attention Must Be Paid!

A rather worried Cardinal was peeing peering into the bedroom window; after I refilled the feeders he was joined by a Blue Jay and a Brown Thrasher. The Black Grackles were soon in evidence and a tufted tit-mouse joined the party.

Since the sun was not yet high, I did some spring planting:

Tomatoes - 3 varieties
Jalapeno Peppers
Oregano
Thyme

All joined the Chives and Mint which came up from last year's plantings.

Finally back and back online after a total Time Warner Cable Modem Meltdown.  I got home at twelve and could see the modem was frozen, with just two lights on.  I called, and they assured me there were no outages anywhere.  They've said that before and it's turned out NOT to be the case, but we did all the stuff that we were supposed to do and still nothing.  They set up an appointment for someone to come here, but the earliest was Tuesday.  I threw a little hissy fit about THAT.  Then the guy I was talking to said it sounded like my modem might be jammed or fried and he suggested I go to a Time Warner place and swap it out.  I went to the one in Van Nuys, did said swapping out, and it now seems that my other modem must have indeed been fried - unless there WAS an outage and it's now fixed.  In any case, I have the newest cable modem, so I suppose that's good.
