Well, you've read the notes, the notes were contended, and now it is time for you to post until, yes, the contented cows come home.

I have shared my favorite recipe - well my only recipe - here before, but I shall do so again.

Take one slice of white bread
Add one layer of Hellmann's mayonnaise
Add two slices of Spam
Top with another slice white bread.
Cut into two pieces if desired.
Serve on saucer with potato chips.

Well we got the lights all set, but I only did a few cues.....Mr Tim is going to finish them up tomorrow when I bring him my paper, which he already has, but he must have forgotten, so I will give him another copy.

BUT tragedy struck BLITHE SPIRIT last night - yes TRAGEDY.

When Charles first sees his wife Elvira as a ghost, he drops the glass of whiskey he just poured for himself.  Fine and dandy except last night, Charles had poured himself a martini....I specifically purchased HEAVY whiskey glasses so it would survive the fall.....not so the lovely GOLD-RIMMED martini glasses....CRASH!!!!   Broken.....and I just had enough of the martini glasses with gold rims to match the number of martinis he makes....and now I am short one.

It is a tragedy.....but the play will go on....I guess.

I wasn't too thrilled with "Bird Cage," either. But in a world where clips become more famous than the movie in which they're from, I admit I love the scene of Robin Williams doing the choreographers. And they use it practically every time the movie is mentioned.

I think part of the problem was that the moviemakers somehow felt they had to deliver a message to middle America in with all the mayhem. I wonder if that were their original intent or something the studio wanted.

For those who are still reading "Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," let me explain further: I read the last 300 pages in a day, rarely stopping to put the book down and loved most every minute, but I will say I had a few problems, which I won't go into yet because I don't care for all the spoiler alerts. Let's just say, if the author had lived, there might have been a few changes made.

As for the first book, I loved it once I finished it, but I stopped about a third of the way through, took a few months' off and then picked it up again. The beginning was a bit slow going, but I felt the ending more than made up for it.

TOD: I could fill up pages with favorite recipes, but I'll limit myself to something I make often, is quite easy and feeds my love of celery. It's an Italian celery salad. Chop up some celery. Grate some Parmesan cheese over the top, to taste. Add EVOO and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Salt, to taste. Stir. Let it set for about 10 minutes. Stir again and serve.

Good morning, all! I got a nice email from my beloved sister-in-law and chef par excellence JoAnn this morning, and - I've wrongly  been maligning Randy all weekend - she attached an email from Randy notifying one of the developers around the new hospital that the house and garage on the property had been torn down and were they interested in the land. The response was maybe. In the future. Land looks good, though.

So, the waiting game continues.  I wait for the property to move, I wait for checks in the post, I wait for something good to happen.

And while I wait, life does go on: I have to be at Toyland around noon for edits with Mr Skip Kennon at 1. This morning I have some writing on the notes and general tidying up of the apartment. I really want to stay indoors all day, but my self-imposed exile is over.

and raving! DR JRand59, I am sorry to hear about the martini glass. While I really enjoy socializing with intelligent actors, and they do exist, it's the dumb ones that make your life hell. It's even worse when they're both pretty and dumb.

TOD:

Garlic Dip

16 oz Philadelphia brand Cream Cheese, room temperature (Neufchatel is okay)
4 bulbs of garlic

Peel garlic and pulverize in a food processor until it's a fine mash.

In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese until light and fluffy. 

Gradually add garlic mash until it is all well blended.

Separate mixture into two serving bowls.  Garnish with parsley flakes.  Cover and chill.

Serve with chips and pretzels.  Have an amusing story handy about how you didn't realize there was a difference between a bulb and a clove.

Tell that actor there's a sour cream glass with his name on it.

I was disappointed with THE BIRD CAGE.  With those particular people behind and in front of the camera, I was expecting something that was sharper and wittier than how it turned out.  But a lot of it is funny.  I especially liked Nathan Lane's "Mother" being made up to look like Barbara Bush.

 just heard from Mr Skip Kennon and we've decided neither of us wants to play in the heat this afternoon, so we're moving our session to tomorrow when it's supposedly 10 degrees cooler. I am very happy.

THE BIRD CAGE may not be as good as the original LA CAGE, but I don't really think it's "a muddle".

The tragedy is having broken glass on stage where an actor might get hurt (or worse, an audience member, if glass flies off the stage), not not having enough glasses.  One can buy cheap glasses anywhere...but, if there is a chance of breaking them, actors shouldn't be deliberately breaking real glasses onstage.  I recently saw a production of TRUE WEST, where an actor took great delight (encouraged by his director) in beating Hell out of a typewriter...with pieces flying all over and off stage.  Lawsuit waiting to happen.  Safety first!

Tuesday morning greetings!  DH Richard is off to the dentist for his semi-annual checkup and I'm gearing up for the day.  We have an appointment at Cincinnati's Apple Store this afternoon to have Richard's laptop examined by the Geniuses.  I'm in the market for a new printer/scanner/copier.

I'm going for a medical test this afternoon--a cartoid artery screening.  I'm not sure if it's an ultrasound or an echo-thingy or just an x-ray, but it is suppose to take very little time.  Hopefully, I won't have to insert my neck into any strange contraption...
