OK, OMG  I had a blast tonight. I went to the taping of Brian Boitano's Skating Spectacular with Heart.  It was really fun.  Great skating, not too loud. And, when they did the crowd reaction shots at the end of intermission they only filmed my section.  I was in the third row trying to do my best enthusiastic audience member (I do really really good audience).  Do there's a good chance I'll be on the show for a brief shining moment.   So set your dvrs and vcrs for Dec 26 from 3:00-5:00 CENTRAL time.

last night was the company Christmas party - despite my post last night I was not drunk - I was however terribly terribly tired - proabably not as tired as our waiter was

we have had parties here in the past and the service is usually wonderful but this time half the staff must have called in sick or else they just really cut back on staffing becasue we had one guy doing everything

he took the drink orders and served , he circulated with the appetizer trays., he cleared and reset teh table and the water glasses, he mentioned that he made the drinks himself ,...and he disappeared for so long afte he took our meal orders and before he served  dinner that I wondered whether he was also cooking and plating all the meals himself  there were about 30 of us so he really could have used some help -  I hope he was well compensated

appetizers included bacon wrapped scallops, chicken on stick, steak on a stick, coconut shrimp, chicken quesadillas and sweet & sour meatballs,

the starter coursew chouices were Caeser salad, beef vegetable soup or Lobster bisque  ( I had the bisque)   main course xhoices wer hwlf a roast chicken, skirt steak with fried onions and mashed potato, or filet mignon with mashed and aspargus -( I had the filet)

wehad a choice of chocolate layer cake, cheescake or sorbet for dessert but we were too tired at that point and ended up going home without dessert

The re taping of some of the flubbed jumps at the end of the show was fun too.  Brian B. and Steve Cousins had a couple to do.  When Steve got it right on the third try he got a HUGE ovation

 I can't wait to see how they edit the show.   The funniest part that you won't see was all the times Brian had to redo his voice over about the sponsor.  He kept saying something wrong.  He said "At least I got the jumps right on the first try"

It wasn't sold out and I hope they can make it look like it was.  One area was behind a cameraman, so that may have been intentional

Finished Micmacs, have three more CDs to burn, music to separate into proper piles, and then I think I'll just prepare the eBlast so that tomorrow is really light.

Of course, every time I see or hear "Hi, Ben", I naturally have to follow up with,

"No, don't look at me..."

or I "embellish"

"Hi... Girls... Ben... Sally.."

I LOVE when things go wrong during live tapings! ;)

-And it's always fascinating to see how they edit it all for the final broadcast.

There was one year at the Kennedy Center Honors when something went horribly wrong with the sound of the band during the opening number. They actually ended up doing the "pick up" with the band after the ceremony, and had cleared the hall.  It was great watching how they had spliced the "after" with the "before", especially in regards to the reaction shots of the audience during the broadcast.

In June 1969, U.S. engineers diverted the flow of the Niagara River away from the American side of the falls for several months.




Why?

Silly, it was where the filmed the "moon landing."
