What happened in 1900 that made it so interesting?

Well, for one thing, DR elmore3003 graduated from college!     ;)

He is timeless ....

I cannot stay here and exchange pleasantries with our DR singdaw or whatever the hell his new nom de plume may be. I've got calls of a similar nature to make elsewhere.

Norm de plume??? ;)

I did "discover" the Mount Pleasant Towne Centre earlier this afternoon.  It's one of those malls that isn't set up like a traditional, enclosed mall, but would provide a better shopping experience if it was set up like a traditional enclosed mall.

I did attend the "Director's Circle" opening night presentation of Picasso at the Lapin Agile last night.  It was a very good production of a very quirky play.  The RAs handled the script very well, and there were some very nice directorial touches too.

Since it was their "Director's Circle" night, they had a pre-show reception and a post-show reception. Wine, beer, soft drinks, and light hors d'oeuvres were served before the show.  After the show, there was more wine, beer, and soft drinks as well as a très grand brie en croute (with caramelized onions and picholine olives), paté de foie gras, lots of baguette slices with various spreads, as well as an omelet station and a crepe station.  -All French food to go with the French setting of the play.  Even the hors d'oeuvres were served on artist palettes.

*And the caterer tipped me off to a couple of her favorite restaurants too.

That sounds like fun!  I would have been hovering around the crepe station.

 I remember back in the late 70's and early 80's when there were some restaurants called Le Crepe that I used to go to as often as I could.

There was one on Long Island in Massapequa  (home of the Baldwin boys, Jessica Hahn, Joey Buttafuco , Jerry Seinfeld and two of of my  former boyfriends amongst other notorious people ) and one in NYC (by the Met if I remember correctly)

The next time you're in the City, you may want to check out one of the locations of Creperie.  They're basically order-at-the-counter and wait operations, but they make great crepes.

 I am only going to work 9 - 1 so I will not be having lunch at the office.  It takes me up to a half hour to eat a single piece of toast and sometimes I make the most unpleasant noises as I atttempt to swallow my food so I would not subject anyone to that.

I also would not subject anyone to watching me tube feed myself.  I think it looks gross and disgusting although both the Vixter and Vixdad have told me it's "cool".

Once I can eat normally again I think I will have to visit there!  I do love well made crepes!

I have tried in the past to make them myself but I dontl seem to have the touch that keeps them from getting tough and rubbery.  Of course I haven't tried to make one in years- maybe I should think about trying it again....

Last night I was opening a jar of pickled herring, and while removing the sealed protective cover (as it is a well known fact that people try to poison pickled herring ---apparently), I spilled quite a bit of pickled herring juice on the floor of my kitchen.  The house was MOST fragrant for many hours.  OY!

Media Check....

CD: Liz Calloway, The Chieftains and the soundtrack for Tristan and Isolde

VHS: Madness of George III (I will be watching Secret of Roan Inish later tonight)

DVD: The Far pavilions..... 

For some odd reason I am all of a sudden intrigued with British Colonial movies such as Jewel in the Crown, Flame Trees of Thika and others.

Hello, everyone.

Today was Hospital Visitation Day. The friend I am staying with became ill a few nights ago. Thinking it was that horrible virus that's been going around, I wasn't too worried. Yesterday morning he went to the doctor and they put him right into the hospital. He's doing better now, fortunately, but I still went over to visit. My doctor's husband, who helps with her practice, had surgery earlier in the week at the same hospital. I stopped by to say hi to him as well.

Aside from fielding phone calls from relatives, I am now Chief Dog Walker. Said dog is a Siberian Husky, a well-mannered dog, but strong enough to pull me down if he decides to chase. I am emulating Caesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer), and attempting to not become "accident-prone" like our DR Jane.  ;)

In which, our modest DR elmore3003 neglects to mention, he receives two noteworthy citations!     :)

Well, I did indeed take a nice walk. Since there are no sidewalks along the access roads in this here part of town, I just drove over to the Whole Foods and walked around there for a while. Up and down each aisle.  I didn't buy anything, but I made a lot of mental notes for possible future purchases.  It's a very "basic" Whole Foods - no in-store smoke-house, no in-store wine bar, a smallish bakery and prepared foods section.  However, they do have an in-store brick oven pizza station.

*I am such the child of food-service parents - and amateur food stylist: as I was walking by the salad and prepared food bars, I would occasionally "pretty up" the trays by giving them a good stir and/or rearranging the food so that everything was being properly cooled or warmed.  ;)
