Today we are supposed to go hiking. In the mud, I guess.

Aren't you cheering for the rain?

AM I GLAD I DIDN'T HAD THE TD PROBLEM, only all intake & output had to be measured.  my care staff was not very good about removing the output before my next trip to the bathroom.  you shall be spared further details.  needless to say i was not happy.

Well, achy and  tired, as to be expected, but feeling pretty well all-in-all.

DerBrucer may be home by now.  Woody is planning a special dinner to make up for the horrible hospital food that had to be endured. ;D

Horrible is not the word for it! Last night they served a grilled pork loin that was a dark shade of grey that even Woody couldn't cut. The sweet potatoes were an under seasoned overcooked glop - and there are lots of healthy eating spice/honey/nut  combos you can use to juice up sweet potatoes. With hot tea, they are happy to load you down with packets of  refined white sugar - but honey is a special order. 

There was special cup of glop they really wanted you to eat, but admitted that most patients found it disgusting - minced prunes, raisins, dates and oat meal with a little applesauce - it was delicious!

Been away for a bit while DS Rob tried to set me up to scan with my printer that's supposed to have that capability.  Doesn't seem to want to work - oh, well.

Anyway, I'm glad to see that DR der Brucer was here.  Great to have you back!

Ginny, did you upgrade to Vista when it became available?  That was my problem.  I had to wait until the printer manufacturer created a new Vista driver to be able to scan again.

Back from NYPL. I've got to start transcribng my notes soon. Perhaps tomorrow.

I had a lovely phone invitation from Bruce Pomahac that cheered me up a bit. I'm going to visit him around 5 and we'll have dinner and watch a movie. I accidentally ordered two copies of the DVD of the Jean Simmons film THE ACTRESS, based on Ruth Gordon's autobiographical play, so I'll give him one as a thank you gift.

DR JMK - we're a Mac household, but I think it's a similar problem.  It might be that I need to update to Snow Leopard.

TOD:

My worse job was working in the behind-the-store warehouse of Bascos when I was fresh out of high school.  Constantly unloading and stacking merchandise and running up and down the four-storied warehouse and retrieving orders.  It was summer, there was no a/c, my co-workers were disco-loving mooks and the pay stunk.  I lasted a month and quit.

My weirdest job was as a sales associate in the toy/doll department of Strawbridge and Clothier in Philly.  It was weird because I was introduced to the world of Madam Alexander dolls and the women who collected them.

Matt H, maybe because we didn’t read about the heavily trumpeted reunion of Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless we enjoyed it.  After the lead in to the character we laughed when Daly appeared.  For us it was fun seeing them together again.



I just felt it was nothing special. Even if I hadn't been aware of the CAGNEY AND LACEY connection, I didn't feel there was anything much to it.

I've done a little over ten pages.  I also got some breakfast earlier.  I actually only did about six pages of new writing.  The rest were quoting the Nudie reviews, starting with our two terrible reviews in the trades, followed by raves from practically everyone else around the country.  It's interesting to revisit these after all this time.  I also reprint in total an extraordinary telegram Cindy sent to Barry Diller when Paramount was trying to screw us.  I haven't seen this telegram since it was sent in April of 1976, but I found it in the Nudie Musical memorabilia box.

I watched CHUCK while I ate lunch. I was glad this was on the DVR since that way I could fast forward through all of the hopelessly stupid FIGHT CLUB/Buy More scenes. The spy stuff was absolutely great. Loved seeing Angie Harmon as a guest star and Brandon Routh joining the team was terrific. He is as gorgeous as ever, too. Three terrific looking men on this show + the wonderful nerdy-handsomeness of Zachery Levi. It's pretty special!

Then I watched SPARTACUS. Yep, it's gory, but the beefcake parade made it easy to just fast forward through anything that was too intense.

Yes, it's very reminiscent of '300,' but with that moaning singer on the soundtrack, it also reminded me quite a lot of TROY rather than GLADIATOR.

Tonight on Showtime is the premiere of TWILIGHT. No, I don't expect it's my kind of movie at all, but I'm anxious to see what all of the fuss was about with the first one before the second one comes out on disc. I won't get to it tomorrow since I'll be working on DYNASTY, but I'll have it for when I have a spare moment.
