DR DAW Thanks for the vibes.

DR JRand, they stop at places with signs like that and have traveled all over the US, so I'll ask tomorrow if they have been to a pig cabaret

Thanks!  I can't find anything on the inner web.....

DR Jose, remember when I asked if you knew Susan Senn from Circa?  Her son has worked at Whitey's for years. 

No. And Ah!

You didn't remember her, so I'm not surprised you don't remember that I asked :)

As I was saying...

The Richmond Men's Chorus and the newly formed Richmond Women's Chorus held a joint "Meet and Greet" Picnic earlier today.  Steve invited me to tag along as his guest.  It was great to see a lot of old friends and familiar faces, and it looks like they've got a good group women assembled for their inaugural season.  -And the grilled "brats" (which had, of course, been boiled in beer and onions before being grilled) were quite tasty too!

The picnic was hosted by two members of the chorus who happen to be next door neighbors.  Both houses were on the "big" side, and they both had very nice yards - about an acre in the front, and an acre and a half in the back.  I had almost forgotten just what a true backyard looks like after living in The City for the past four years. ;)

After I left the picnic, I went ahead and headed over The Healing Center in Carytown for a long overdue massage.  My regular(?) masseur, Francis, happened to be in town this weekend, and he just happened to have an opening in his schedule this evening.

When I first moved to Richmond, a friend of mine was helping a friend of his find massage clients in Richmond.  My friend played in the Richmond Symphony, and his friend, Francis, had started coming up to Richmond from Virginia Beach every now and then to work on some of the symphony members who were clients of his.  Eventually, Francis was able to fill his schedule, and started making regularly scheduled trips each month.  That was about ten years ago.  -And his hourly rate has only gone up $10 since then!

*I think the last time I had a massage from/by Francis was about 4 years ago, and I also think that that was the last time I had a massage. I'm so glad I splurged tonight.  I knew that my neck and shoulders were a bit tight lately, but... WHOA!  He wasn't able to work all the kinks out, but I can already tell my range of motion is much improved after my 90-minute session.

Well, it's usual for me. :)

Actually, since I was/am a regular, if I happened to book his last appointment of the day, he would sometimes thrown in a couple of extra minutes for free. Sometimes, I would be treated to an almost two-hour massage. -Thankfully, my apartment was only a two-block walk from his studio. If my appointment started at 7:30 or 8:00, I would sometimes just walk home, get into bed, and go right to sleep.  :)

*Since he specializes in musicians, he also knows which muscle groups to concentrate on according to the instrument you play.  When I would refer fellow musicians to him, I would always tell them not to tell him what instrument they played.  He always liked guessing - and correctly! - after his initial assessment.

OH!

And did any other DR happen to try any of the amazing flavors that were made by the now-no-longer-in-operation Jeremy's Microbatch?

The Ukrop's chain in Richmond carried them when they first came out, and since they were offering the pints at 1/2-off, well... I tried each of the flavors.  There were only six.  -"Jeremy" only wanted to offer a small selection of flavors at a time.  When he introduced a new flavor, he would retire a previous flavor.

The Cinnamon Bun and Vanilla Cream Stout were my favorites.  However, the Purple Passion Pills was also quite good, if weirdly named.  It was a purple-colored vanilla ice cream with small chocolate mint candies.  Oh, and he also offered a Vanilla with Caffeine.

Watching a motion picture on DVD.  I watched one episode of Lost and decided to save the rest for tomorrow.  I watched five episodes of Adam 12, most of which were very weak.  One great location shot at Robertson and Beverly Blvd, but not Valley shots at all.

We'll be heading back up to Fairfax in the morning.  And since "morning" tends be "early" for me...

Goodnight.

Speak of the devil!

"Let it be stated, to begin, that people have been anxiously awaiting the CD debut of favored cast albums since 1988 or so, when the first CDs in their long cardboard boxes started claiming shelf space. Let us add that the last few years have, finally, brought us most of the must-haves. Recent additions include Anya and Illya Darling, both from Bruce Kimmel. Fittingly so, as he's the fellow who started the notion of dusting off non-blockbuster musicals and putting them on CD. His early label, Bay Cities, proved that people would eagerly buy CDs to replace cast albums they already owned, back in the days when we didn't quite know that vinyl would soon be obsolete."

And so begins Steven Suskin's latest "On The Record" column: LPs Not on CD, Part One.

Yeah, Bruce!  :)

DR MBarnum - You can still eat ice cream, can't you?  Not a whole pint, but a few spoonfuls, right?

I suppose a few spoonfuls wouldn't kill me...but it would be difficult to stop with just that!

Just keep your insulin nearby. ;)

I promised I'd be up and on the road by 8:00 AM so I can be there by 10:00 AM so we can have coffee and talk before Steve wakes up.   So, I better get to sleep.  I got my outside work done today, but didn't get the inside chores done.  I'll have to do them when I get back to town tomorrow night.  This is going to be a very long week

However, I did watch one of the Nikkatsu noir films that DR MattH, sent to me, and that made my evening just swell! RUSTY KNIFE was the film, and it was very enjoyable.

It is only 9:30 pm, and while I still have time to watch a Bollywood movie, I am just too tired and grumpy to do so...so I will read a bit and hit the hay.

Tomorrow I must buy food for Bosco and myself, in that order.

SHIFTING SCENES AROUND, NEW DIALOGUE, MAKE IT FLOW FROM SCENE TO SCENE BETTER, CHANGING  PLOT POINT THAT CAME OUT OF SOME NEW DIALOGUE.

I HAVE GIVEN IT TO MY TWO MUSES AND WE WILL SEE WHERE IT GOES FROM THERE.


And excuse the all caps I just noticed it.

Well its off to bed.

I didn't realize being pain can make someone creative.
