To answer the "Annie Get Your Gun" Questions: Can't find out which version. The series here is based on "Encores" but it is staged and costumed etc - as much as 9 days will allow! The shows I have seen have been done really well and it does make you wonder why they have to spend millions on other shows. I could not find out which version of "AGYG" has been licensed.
The lead role will not be played by Dame Edna but by the darling of the OZ stage - Marina Prior. The public loves to love her. Since her professional debut way back in Pirates, she has been in Camelot (Richard Harris production), WSS, Phantom, Les Mis, Showboat etc. Her most recent appearance here was in a production of "Noises Off" in 2003.

Sorry for your dead rodent troubles BK... it sounds absolutely disgusting.

If it's any consolation, I just had an image of you being haunted by the spirit of a dead rodent and it made me laugh (sorry... but it IS a funny image - little ghost like rodents... tee hee) :D

Ha, ha! MattH!

I had to cancel my Universal monsters DVD set and then reorder. I checked Amazon.com to see if my order had shipped but I had forgotten that I ordered that set along with the Ma and Pa Kettle and Francis the Talking Mule sets! Well the Kettles don't release until May and the Mule doesn't come out until June...so the whole entire order was scheduled to ship in June!

I cancelled the Kettles and Francis too and will just pick them up at Best Buy when they come out!

Emily I thought that was funny.  You certainly have a fun imagination.  Now if I were in Bruce's situation I might not be laughing yet.

It's going to be sketchy around here for a few days.  I do have their deodorant, which is not doing a brilliant job at the moment, but will hopefully kick in at some point.  Meanwhile, the window is open and the air conditioning is on.  I hope I can sleep through this.  The smell, even at its worst does tend to neutralize once you've been in the room for a few minutes.  It's just coming in there from the other room that it's really horrifying.

Update: Eating some of my famous tuna pasta salad and watching Where the Spies Are with David Niven and Francoise Dorleac.  At the time of release the film was sold as a comedy, a spoof.  That it is not - it is a straightforward spy thriller - yes, a lightweight one, but not a spoof or a comedy in any way.  However, what they do is suddenly have Riz Ortolani's score be stupid or "comedic" in totally inappropriate scenes.  Very bad, and very dumb.  I think had they not done that and not mis-sold it, it might have done much better, because I can think of many more unpleasant things than watching David Niven and Francoise Dorleac for a couple of hours.

It's rained all day long here in Bethlehem.  I've petted a cat or two, looking out at it.  Also wrote a brief scene and scenelet, along with a melody I'm sure not to use, for the big musical.

There's so much I'm so sure I won't end up using, and yet the idea is to start by completing a full draft.  Does every moment need to push the story forward?  Time will tell.  But I often write things that "merely" entertain, with the full expectation that someday they'll be considered extraneous and go.

I didn't ever catch up with "Spies Like Us". Should I be thankful? My mind seems to put in the same box as "Ashanti".

It's hard to keep all these Universal DVD franchise sets clear.  I hadn't heard Warners was doing a Hammer box, but I already have Curse, Horror and The Mummy - so what am I getting that I need to have that I don't already have, and will they be available separately?

Since you already have half of what's in the Hammer boxed set, and the three other titles are available separately, there's no real reason for you to pick it up.  Unless you really like the box.  

As far as the Universal box goes, the selling point for me is that I don't have all of the movies in it, and the new-and-improved transfer of The Bride of Frankenstein.  As well as the Dracula, Wolf Man and Frankenstein Monster busts they're giving away with them.  I'm a sucker for an action figure...

BK - you also get:
DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE
FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED
TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA.

I held off on the original titles, for I had heard gossip a while ago that Warner would indeed be putting them in a box.
( "Put it in a box, tie it with a ribbon and toss it in the deep blue sea." - I know that some dear reader will recognize those lyrics immediately).

And should I tell Jane how to play "The Sheila Green Memorial Game," or should a fellow DR?
Maybe Yvonne Romaine will show up with Leslie Bisquick, er, I mean LESLIE BRICUSSE to teach us all. . .

I realized after I had posted that I had forgotten to wish Jennifer a happy birthday.  :o I'm sorry, Jennifer, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Regarding the kinda-sorta topic of the day, what is it with science teachers and dead rodent stories? There was a rather nasty dead rodent story in my seventh grade Biology class, and just today, my Geology teacher Queen Merry told us a dead rodent story that happened to her over the weekend.

Hi all!

Happiest of Birthdays to you, DR Jennifer!  Many, Many, Many more!  If I knew the exact date/time, the time program I found would tell you exactly how long youíve been here on the planet.  I found out it counts up as well as down.

Sympathies on the loss of your rodent, BK!  I have smelt your pain on an occasion or two.  :)
 
I am sooo sleepy right now.  I must have over did it yesterday.  We have a nice cool breeze and itís going to rain in a bit (so the weatherman says).  That makes me want to close my eyes and ZZZZZZ.

Forgive me if I don't make it to chat.  

Jane, I will answer your e-mails tomorrow night.  I just didn't get around to them.  I'm sorry.
