I just want to say that I am glad the woman took Spats back right away. She didn't even get home before changing her mind. So her daughter didn't see him and get attached to him and THEN returned him or let him get out of the kitten stage and then returned him. I am glad she took him back while the bus was still there -- otherwise he would have ended up at the shelter. I was just disappointed that it looked like he got a home, but didn't. He doesn't seem too upset -- he's purring like crazy.

I agree, and it's less traumatic for Spats.

DR Laura, I was thinking about you this morning as I was playing with Ricky.   He clearly had a family that cuddled with him and treated him very well and loved him.   I think the families who adopt the kittens you foster are very lucky, they are getting kittens who have been socialized so they will be much more likely to be affectionate and welcomed into a loving home

We're having a blizzard at the moment.   It's snowing and the wind is gusting to 45 mph.  Ah, this is what I've been waiting for.  Being officially told not to go anywhere.   OK.

DR Druxy, that song from "New Faces" is one I find myself singing on occasion. Because, well, "you can't chop your mother up in Massachusetts" and sometimes that's all you need to say.

TOD: Pick-me-up songs: A bunch of Cole Porter -- "Begin the Beguine," "Ace in the Hole," "From Now On," "Tomorrow," "Leader of a Big-Time Band," "Just One of Those Things," "The Kling Kling Bird on the Divi Divi Tree," "Blow, Gabriel, Blow."

Of course there are many from Sondheim, Kander and Ebb, Jule Styne and Charles Strouse, among others, that I'll find myself singing. The list could go on for days.

Watching "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" this morning. Surprised I have never seen it. It's all it's said to be and more.

Good morning, all! I slept very late because I can. I was having a dream that I had been brought to LA to write choral arrangements for a show that was clearly a "Glee" ripoff. I had a lot of friends on the project, including Brad Ellis, and a huge chorus of backup singers. I rememebr dreaming about a recording session and losing my wallet - and finding it - and a dream about using one of the music director's songs written for the show and writing an arrangement to be used as a choral underscoring to a crime caper.

Today, I have lots of work here at the apartment. Around 3pm I have to go down to Toyland to retrieve some music and use the piano.

DR Laura, I think Spats believes he is home! Buy him a bus ticket and put him on the next Greyhound.

Happy Birthday, DR Ginny! I know you've received my official eCard.

I used to do "Lizzie Borden" for an audition piece. I was amazed when I found the sheet music.

TOD:
  Romantic songs:
      Thirsty Boots (Eric Andersen)
      Long Ago and Far Way (Kern-Gershwin)
      Where Do I Go From Here? (Bock & Harnick)
      If I Gave You (Timothy Gray-Hugh Martin)
   Pick-Me-Up songs:
      It all depends on my mood

I actually found it while cleaning, so I guess that says I shouldn't clean. I had never watched the disc before. It was one of these strange Christmas compilations. Also on it is a Red Skelton Freddie Freeloader mime/dance piece in which the background singers offer up some standards. One of the songs is "But Not for Me" given a whitewash during the Cold War. Instead of singing about the skies of gray in any "Russian play," they make it "Broadway play."

Speaking of Brent's album, I tried to order copies from Amazon.com just before I left for Ohio, and they canceled my order.
