WHITE CHRISTMAS
« on: December 15, 2010, 12:35:32 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were dreaming of a White Christmas, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently dreaming of a White Christmas just like the ones they used to know up in Fresno.

I'm first after bk---I must be up early!

Usually the cats wake me up at 5:30 but today it's Greg as he leaves for a shoot, flying on the Chik-Fil-A corporate jet. Wonder if they serve Chik-Fil-A on board?

Did anyone see the Brubeck special that aired on TCM? It was another co-production from Clint and the "director" of the Mercer show. There were many similarities. They sure have a "style" of filmmaking.

And I hate the new Facebook format, especially how it announces everything you've posted to other people's walls on your own page. I haven't been able to find a preference to make it stop doing that, but it makes me not want to post on people's walls.

Wednesday morning greetings!  I'm up early to get ready to go to Dayton for a luncheon with my volunteer administrator friends.  I haven't seen them since July because their meeting time conflicted with my cardiac rehab sessions.

It was  a lovely but surprising 82 degrees on Monday, but these days in the 70s are really quite nice despite how incongruous they are.

Good morning, all! Yesterday morning was a bit frustrating at the McGlinnventory because two of our colleagues didn't show up to continue the inventory of the DATs - and there are a ton of them! -  going to  the Library of Congress, nor did they show up last week and time is getting short because the executor wants to close this estate by Dec 31. This morning one of them sent me and our paralegal an email saying the problem on his end is the scheduling of the catering company he's working for over the holidays, bit I'm rather pissed at the other, a brilliant musician who needs handholding to walk a step. I would have hired other people at half the rate but I am stuck with these two because of the executor.

So that was the frustration, but I did get my inventory lists in order and Geri, our paralegal, and I did get orchestra parts and full scores pulled for the LoC. McGlinn had sold the Library his collection in 1998 and then sent them, after receiving in three payments a ton of money, about 3/4 ofwhat he promised. Our first job, before shipping the Library everything else due the Music Division, is to find everything not sent from that original shipment. Interestingly, on the LoC inventory sheets, there is a ton of material they received that is not on the McGlinn lists!

After that, I went to Toyland for a meeting with two lovely ladies, one an opera singer who will be performing with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival next summer, and the other the daughter of the institute's director and a lady I've always liked, about the progress of this project. Since I've been threatening to resign for the past year, I didn't care what occurred. What did occur was quite promising, with good suggestions and a chance to vent all of the frustrations. If what we've worked out is to be accomplished, it would be a wonderful thing. We'll see.

Today, I'm off to City Center to help Joshie, my adopted son, finish up the new edition of FOLLIES for Music Theatre International. His Finale program clearly clashed with the program that the original inputting employed and, on his last pass to print out the score, a lot of information was lost. He's on a severe deadline since MTI needs the materials for the Kennedy Center production, and I will go in and see what proofing/things I can do to help.

I think that's all of my news.

There have been several instances of the quincunx this year, but I usually don't report them, because the complications are very specific to specific signs.

Merry Christmas, Thora Birch.

You're fired.

I only know her from her movies, but if she is giving the same performance she gives in those movies, she was wrong for Lucy Seward anyway.

And backrubbing seems a bit out of time for the period of Dracula - at least the director didn't suggest she imitate her mother's specialty.

A few days ago, I learned that the screenwriter of THE KING'S SPEECH is David Seidler.

David and I were at the University of Washington Drama School together back in 1959-60. 

I was a freshman and he was in graduate school.

We did a television production of HAMLET together.  He was Claudius, I was Osric, and Marian Hailey, who did the movie version of LOVERS AND OTHER STRANGERS and HARVEY on TV with Jimmy Stewart, played Ophelia.  The 1-hour production, done on the University's educational TV channel was conceived and directed by Rod Whitaker.

I also recall that, for his Master's thesis, David wrote a very funny play about ancient Rome, CLAUDIUS THE IDIOT.

Fingers crossed that he gets the Oscar.

Poor DR Ben!  Of all the times of the year for this to happen, too!

I had my appendix removed in an emergency operation when I was nine (in fact, it burst right after the surgeon made the incision.)  That happened in May--I missed the end of my second grade school year. 

For some reason, my parents thought that that summer would also be a good time to get my tonsils out, so I was back in the hospital two months later.  I always think back to that year as the Do Nothing Summer (because I was allowed to do nothing...)

I read  "The Quincunx." Reading a real 19th century novel is much more rewarding.

Well, here we are again.  Kids Christmas Program was last night, it was lovely. Today I'm home with Tiny Tim (Manny) and Mr Fezziwig (Otto) with a congested head.  I'm hoping this moves along soon, as I hate having a congested head.  However, I do have to do laundry and things like that, we'll see how much gets done as that would require me moving off the couch.
