TOD:

My only vivid Christmas memory is when I discovered that my father was Santa Claus.

Santa came to our house on Christmas day and I spotted my father's shirt under the Santa Claus suit.

 :o

That discovery changed the course of my life.

 ::)

I was 40.

Saturday morning greetings!  We got in very late last night after a very long day and I crashed.  I will tell you about our day/evening after I do a couple of very important posts.

So, Richard and I left home about noon yesterday and headed to Oxford, OH, where he met up with other current and alumni glee club members for rehearsal.  The graduation ceremony started at 3pm and was quite lovely.  We left OX just before 5 and headed to Cincinnati for a surprise 60th birthday party for Richard's brother David at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse.  He was, indeed, surprised to find 30 of his friends/family there when he was expecting to have quiet Friday dinner with his wife and their neighbor whose son (their son's best friend) who's home from the service.

What neither David nor his wife knew was that THEIR son Christopher was also home and he turned up to take his father's drink order.  I was standing right next to Kathy and I thought she was going to pass out.  Christopher has been stationed in Okinawa and recently returned from Afghanistan.  We hadn't seen him since Thanksgiving 2007.

It was a fun, festive evening and I kind of blew my diet...

I got to the post office to find NO LINE! That's the first thing going well in several days, and I shipped via priority mail six packages in about 10 minutes. The difficult one was the large carton for DRMBarnum. It cost me a fortune to ship him something I pcked up hanging around the bus station.

This morning I am going to my niece's ballet "recital". I put quotes around the word because there are only 7 kids in her class. And I suspect the teachers will be doing the dance with the kids following them (that is what they did for their hip hop recital).

Then my sister has to go to a baby shower so I am taking my niece to a birthday party at a place called Fundomundo. You get to jump around and play.  My mom gets to skip everything I've mentioned and babysit the baby.  I figure what I'm doing is more fun. Although the mom I would know at the birthday party is the one hosting the baby shower, so she won't be there.  Well I have met the parents of the birthday girl a few times.

I just need to remember to get the present at my sister's house and actually bring it.  And I need to remember the car seat.

I am sleepy. But I need to do my 20 minutes of exercise.  Although I'm afraid that my rebounder (mini tramp) may break. It's sort of on its last legs (literally). Two pieces of it broke off. So I sort of have to carefully jog. Gosh I hate indoor exercising!

I said I would go swimming once a week for the winter. But have not done that yet. Maybe next week or the week after.

Thanks for so many good wishes greeting my arrival, from ol' pals and young, George, Michael S, Fred!, Elmore!, Ben!, JRand, Laura, Drux, Gins, Jennifer!!!

Today I arrive at the theater at 0900, to get a script written overnight by one of six playwrights who began work at 8 last night... I don't yet know who is my director, nor who else might be in my cast, nor anything about the character I'll play, nor the story!! We rehearse all day, and play the show tonight! It's the second 24-hour plays program this Fall, as we slide into the end of our 3rd season. We'll be extending our LA premiere of Cormack McCarthy's THE SUNSET LIMITED after the holidays for all of January - selling out, absolute rave reviews from the Times, all the other papers, Ovation Recommended, alla that - booked solid through the run which ends tomorrow - so we decided to bring it back the first Thursday of 2011 and play another month. Never close a money-maker, if you can avoid it!!! Anyhow - that's my plan for this 62nd birthday!!!

Well, looks like I won't make a 7 am yoga class (I usually take the 10 AM class) before I head over to the theater... Question: how old would you be if you didn't know how old you are??? I must say that, at 62, my dad was still very fit and youthful - so I always expected to be quite young until age 87 - which is when Joe Orloff stopped playing baseball...
