Jane - I'm stepping into what you're saying about Tylenol.

My doctor is recommending that i take Aleve (sp?) every day.  This scares me for some reason.  But I'm not exactly sure I can explain it rationally to anyone's s satisfaction.

Every day?  Be careful you don't mess up your stomach.  I can't tolerate it.  I believe you can now get the enteric- coated ones.  I suggest you read up on ways to protect yourself.  Vibes it works!!!

Due to the elections in Mexico this weekend.  The law is there is no alcohol served in public from 1:00pm until tomorrow evening.  This excludes restaurants when served with food.  Therefore, no swim up bar, no lobby bar, etc etc.  Personally, I don't care, but to watch others (mostly Americans) pitch a fit is humorous to me.   Do they not realize they are guests in someone else's country and therefore must abide by their rules?   The resort may cater to Americans, however, they still try and uphold the traditions of their country.  The sense of entitlement of Americans saddens me.  I'm going to win the lottery and move to Europe.

I haven't been posting about day-to-day stuff because it is clear that one of the computer-oriented people is googling me regularly. I'm doing the usual stuff about theater, posting parodies, but nothing that spills into issues that might interest them.

But I'm being very careful how I say this:

Had a nice time visiting with my buddy Mark who is visiting from Wyoming. He is now on his way back home. I wish he would move back to Oregon, but I don't think that will happen until his parents pass on. One of the reasons he moved back home to Wyoming was because of them. Mark lost both a brother and a sister over the last few years, and thought it best to go back and keep an eye on the rest of his family.

However, he and his partner of 7 years broke up and now he is a man on the prowl. He had me snap some photos of him so that he could lure men on the internet. Here he is, all 6 ft 4 inches of backwoods hillbilly.





Mike, he is almost as good-looking as you.

Tomorrow a couple of my friends are going on a trip to Canada, including Montreal.   Had it not been for my accident I would have gone with them.  These women often travel without their husbands and I've never been tempted to join them.  This is a trip Keith has no interest in visiting having been to these places more than once.  I've yet to see Montreal and that part of Canada.

Surfing the tv wasteland. Caught Dolly Parton singing with Kenny Rodgers. For a moment I thought he had gone blind. Then I realized his facelifts give him two little slits where his eye used to be.

Hello from lovely (no, I really mean it) Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  The hotel's internet is down (of course), so we are at something called Hastings, I guess the local Borders clone.

We had a nice, uneventful drive with glorious weather, but I'm rather stiff.  Tomorrow we have a somewhat longer day as we wend our way to Big Timber, MT.

BK, some guy named Scott (from the A&M Board) whom I helped to place an order for Promises is bitching over there about his jewel cases being smashed.  I posted that I felt you would be more than happy to replace them for him (he ordered two copies and they were both evidently cracked/broken), but he's upset that your Kritzerland emails seem to bounce (though I've told him they don't).  Just FYI.  :)

BK - We didn't get our PROMISES PROMISES yet.  Was it sent out?

Yes, it was sent out - as I guess I have to keep reminding - we have no control over the USPS - sad, but true.

Yes, Scott wrote me.  I just don't understand people having problem sending us e-mails via Kritzerland.  What they do is cut and paste the address into their browser, and if they do that the e-mails will always bounce back because all the addresses on the site are phantom addresses that all get forwarded to our gmail address.  Why they can't just do as instructed and CLICK THE LINK on the page is beyond me, but we've now revamped those pages and the addresses are gone and only a clickable link remains, so we'll never have the problem again.  I gave Scott a couple of options - we'll see which he chooses.  But "bitching" about it - please.  We use the sturdiest CD shippers made - that's all we can do.  If the USPS decides to drop a few heavy packages on top of one, that's not our fault, and I'm quite sure that's what happens.

Yep, new all-time low thanks to the errant and truant - and, of course, I'm not so happy about it.  We haven't had a four page day in, what, six years???  Nauseating.

I'd say get me off this damn page, but since there's no chance of that happening I think I'll just go eat some worms.  And blame JMK.  And you know who.  I do find it fascinating that so many here respond to you-know-who's Facebook ramblings.  No wonder he never comes here anymore.

Last night in Cancun.  Karaoke in the Lobby Bar with no alcohol.  Singing just as bad as if there was alcohol.  I sang "Jailhouse Rock" in a key WAY too high for me and I think it was higher than the original.  Then I sang "Copacabana" and had a great time.  Except for the teen (who had been drinking-go figure) who was "rave dancing" during my song.  I tried shooing him off, but it didn't work.  It made for great visuals, though.  The teen was clueless about Barry Manilow and Copacabana.  We are through packing and will be JetBluing to California tomorrow morning.  Will check in from Ft Lauderdale!

One of my least favorite stupid thrillers is Jagged Edge - but there was a whole slew of 'em in the 1980s.

Mine too!  And believe it or not, I was hired to write JAGGED EDGE II.  I kept resisting...courtroom dramas, while I like them, I can't write.  But more importantly, my problem with the movie was Glenn Close's character; I just found her unprofessional.  First, falling apart because she'd screwed up a case in the past; and then getting emotionally involved with a client. 

But they kept coming at me to write the sequel, dangling Glenn Close, a  major star at me  (and very nice), and when I asked for impossible money; they agreed.  Hardest thing I ever wrote, took forever to find my passion and interest in the piece, finally did, and my whole thrust was her character finding her professionalism again.  Unfortunately, though I ultimately liked my script, I think I was more enamoured of the new characters I had created than the Close's.  Needless to say, after a draft, we all mutually agreed to go our seperate ways.  And that's why you never saw Jagged Edge II.

Wasn't one version of the sequel made into a movie (forget the title) with Burt Reynolds?

They changed all of the character's names, so it was not really a sequel.

As I recall, it got terrible reviews and was quickly forgotten.

Don't think there was ever any sequel.  Most of the movies I've parted company with in the early stages of development, either voluntarily or not, never seemed to see the light of day...which I hope means that my instincts about the material being workable were either good or they could never find anyone to satisfactorily replace me, once I was gone.

If Samantha won't visit you maybe she will make an extra visit to your mother.  I'm very sorry you are going through this.

Oh, it's typical for our family.  I've decided to just fire them as family members  :)

I had a wonderful time at Saturday in the Park.  I wasn't going to go back after seeing Amanda Shaw and getting really warm in the afternoon, but came home, took a shower, went to the office checked the mail, moped around a little and then decided I wasn't going to let my family ruin my day, so I went back, got close enough for some really good photos, and  really enjoyed both Steve Winwood and Santana.   The crowd was insane so after getting my photos I left.

Then I went across the street to a friend's house. You could hear every note loud and clear, so I listened for awhile then went home before the crowd let out.  Then i went to a park near my house to wait for the fireworks they shoot off after the concert.  You could still hear the music pretty well and this is about 20 blocks away.  Amazing.

The fireworks this year were pretty lousy.  It's looked like they didn't have them timed and they all sort of went off at the same time.  I'm curious to see if I hear about a problem with them later
