I, A FIEND?

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were fiendish, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they will be coming home - that's their plan - plan nine.

I'm awake. I cannot sleep. Just when I thought I was getting back to my old sleeping pattern. Damn!

Maybe it's all the tsuris and angst over the LoC, my current poverty, and this upcoming reading of Life Begins At 8:40, maybe it's too much cinnamon in my apple sauce, maybe it's the pain in my leg.

I, however, am up at my usual time.

I have no idea what we will be watching, if anything, this weekend. Until the weather breaks I won't sit in the living room to watch a DVD, it's too hot. The older I get, the less tolerance I have for the heat. It is supposed to get better tomorrow and Sunday and I can't wait.

Even with the heat I still have to do laundry so that will happen today.

Things are crazy at work. I won't go into detail. Some of you may hear details on Monday but I'm refraining from writing on a public space.

Oh, I forgot, I may see the revival/re-worked How Now, Dow Jones on Sunday afternoon. It's being done at the Minetta Lane as part of the Fringe Festival. It's always been a guilty pleasure. Very few people know the show. It starred Tony Roberts and Brenda Vaccaro (sp) was featured and had more than one song?!?!

Anyway, it's hot here in the living room (we only have AC in the bedroom) and I need to finish my breakfast and get to the office.

Bye.

Maybe all of the above.

I should be in bed sleeping.  I'm sure I ate too much sugar last night.  Oh, and then a dog sleeping half on top of me on a warm night doesn't help, on cold nights it is ok.

DR Matt H, I like Meg Ryan.  I somehow doubt the results of whatever she had done was exactly what she had intended.  I think it is relaxing a bit now & she looks better.

DR Jose, I have no doubt you are a dream customer for the restaurant manager/partner.  She also sounds like a dream manager & knows how to treat a good customer.

It is possible I misplaced a camera for a few days.  I did have a VERY long stretch between camera’s.

Lovely photos from DR GINNY yesterday.

Also lovely photos from DR derBRUCER....food and otherwise.

Yes Mr Oosterhouse looks to me as if he's had some photoshopping done on his photo.

Nice email that MR BK received.  Hmmmmmmmmm......three hours to see 4 people, one of whom argued with the director.

We did Act Two yesterday.  It was my 4th rehearsal, and I had never done Act Two, so I had to use my book, but so did everyone else, except Teddy.  It's most distressing that people who have been in rehearsal SO long are still on book and wondering about their blocking.

It didn't help that our director decided to stay home last night.

Good morning, all!

As of today, no PHI payment, no word from the Library of Congress except that "friends" in the Music Dept have been letting other friends know that they're pissed I'm publicly yelling about the Library's accounting dept's refusal to honor the payment terms of its contract. I'm sure those "friends" are being paid regularly, and that's all I've asked for, and I've had to deal with certain friends whose attitude is "well, you will be paid at some point" want to know why I'm not borrowing money from others!

So, to all those folks above, I have some very choice, terse phrases I won't repeat here.

I have a few errands to run first thing this morning, and that's my day.

Good morning!

We have a 70% chance of rain today, but right now it looks like it's going to be a regular summer day with blue skies and lots of hot, hot sunshine.

Another fairly wretched night. I did take a 30 minute nap this morning, and I suspect I'll be lapsing back into unconsciousness a lot today.

I don't really have anything new to watch this weekend, except the last to discs of NCIS, Season 4.

However, by the middle of next week, I should be getting a big box of DVDs forwarded to me from Los Angeles, which should contain some good stuff.

I got the results of the MRI. The good news was that it was not a herniated disc in my neck. The bad news is that I have a combination of the onset of arthritis and a deterioration of the spongy material between the discs in my spine. Now, I understand why the doctor has signed me up for rehab which begins on Monday morning.

And no new drugs for the present. He's convinced the pain will subside with time and exercise, so I have to use over-the-counter pain medication plus the rest of the Vicodin and Ibuprofin and muscle relaxers he prescribed during my previous two visits.

All very disappointing. On the other hand, it's not life threatening; it's just that my quality of life for the moment is not going to be very pleasant.

I was going to watch the All-Star PROJECT RUNWAY this morning since I was up very early, but the DVR did not record an audio track, so I just deleted both it and the first episode of the new season.

It's coming on again early this evening, so I'll re-record it then. I made sure the SAP channel was turned off which I think was the problem with the recording last night.

LIZA WITH A Z was playing on one of the Showtime channels this morning, so I watched that. (I have it on DVD, but this was convenient). Always a pleasure to watch this even tough the lip-synchs a vast majority of the show (or went back and looped her songs after the event).

DR Matt H, the great news is that it's diagnosed and treatment can begin! I still feel for your pain and discomfort. I was going to sugggest the doctor give you Vicodin and muscle relaxant to help you sleep at night but I see he already has. It worked wonders for me, although I think it will take death to silence my bad attitude on existence.
