And you can continue to be the grown  man running about NYC with a stuffed toy taking photos of it.




And I'm all the better and happier and non-bittered for it!

Have you had any FUN lately, DR Ron Pulliam?  Or at least a Morning Bun or Chocolatine?

I had planned to watch BURN BEFORE READING. But then I remembered that I'm taking tomorrow off, and I will watch it then.

So, I watched more NCIS episodes. One had the lovely Connor Trineer who had captured the NCIS director and wanted his jailed brother back in exchange for her.

I think the new neighbor may have moved in while I was gone.  His kitchen light is on and his car is in the driveway.  There was a woman in a van who stopped several times before I left.  Didn't see her today, just a guy in a red convertible.   Most curious indeed.

Well, you know there are different incarnations of the Poirot tales. Christie wrote a bunch of Poirot short stories, and 36 of them were filmed as one hour episodes.

The full length novels have not all yet been filmed, but they have done a great many of them, and FIVE LITTLE PIGS was one of the ones from the early 1940s. They're all movie length, of course (90+ minutes). FIVE LITTLE PIGS was renamed MURDER IN RETROSPECT when it was first printed in America. I'm not sure which name it has as a novel now, but the movie version definitely goes by the name FIVE LITTLE PIGS.

Good night!

DR MattH - Here's the review of the new Miss Marple series from the New York Times, which inevitably includes a compare and contrast of the previous actresses who have played Miss Marple.

Well, tomorrow looks like it may be quite the action-packed day for me. Besides my usual activities of walking and running town taking pictures of Monkey; tracking down the various food trucks I follow on Twitter; popping into MoMA for another brief bit of Art and Education; coaching a friend for an upcoming audition; trading in a few more CDs and DVDs at Academy; having lunch with my friend, Chris; helping total strangers find their way on the subway; offering to take pictures of families as they walk through Times Square and continue to laugh at myself...

I also have to getting ready for the arrival of my friend, John, from Chicago later in the week, as well as my cousin, Christine, from Seattle.  -I haven't seen Christine in at least 15 years!  -And since Christine will be in NYC this coming weekend, my parents may also be coming into town for a day too (coupled with another trip to Atlantic City). ;)

Goodnight.

Oh, DR Jose, next time you're in Paris, do order "pain au chocolat" rather than "chocolatine" ...

The latter is mostly used in the South (My region) not well known here!

(The other day, the attendant thought I wanted a ... drink au chocolat!! :D)

bk - Just a reminder: The Michael Jackson Memorial takes place at the Staples Center on Tuesday. It would probably be best not to drive anywhere near downtown that day.

*And I'm still can't believe - although, I can - that some of the news channels will be having "All Day Coverage" of the Michael Jackson Memorial.  Umm... What about North Korea? Afghanistan? Iran? Iraq? The U.S. Economy?  :-\

Thanks for the reminder - there was a Langer's possibility that day, but I'll move it to later in the week.

Thanks to all for the vibes.  Sometimes I think it's just better not to know people at all, but then I come here and I know that's not true.

Yup.  When the 4th is on a saturday, Friday is the official holiday.  When it's on Sunday, Monday is the official holiday. Otherwise it's always on the 4th no matter what day of the week it's on

Went for a drive.  It didn't help.  I'm trying to watch a motion picture entitled Short Circuit, but it's really bad.

Why do you keep watching all of these movies you don't like...where there are so many out there you haven't seen yet, and might love?

I ended up enjoying Short Circuit - it's just got a sort of bad first twenty minutes - and that's why I don't give up sometimes.
