Here's a more recent statement by Patrick Tierney:

http://www.wral.com/entertainment/story/8818529/

Patrick Tierney said his brother would be released from the hospital Friday or Saturday and would complete his recovery at home in New Hampshire. He said his brother is in "as good spirits as he can be," is expected to make a full recovery and will surely return to the stage.

"He's a dancer. He landed on his feet. If he didn't land on his feet, he wouldn't be with us," said Patrick Tierney, 24, of Plaistow, N.H. "He has a strong body and an amazing attitude."


Actually, I think that statement is from over a day ago.

I've been trying to think of places for Matthew and Eric to visit when they are in Phoenix next month. The only interesting place I can think of out here is the sewage pond.


DR Laura - thanks for thinking of us.  We haven't booked anything yet, including our flights/hotel etc.  If you have any insight on a nice hotel to stay at, I'd love to know.  Like I said, nothing has been set and I'm not doing it (Long rant post about THAT one, but I'll refrain)

I don't know from nice hotels, Matthew. I usually stay at a Motel 6 or Rodeway Inn. Super 8 if we are really splurging.

Isn't nearby Scottsdale known for great hotels?

I've never stayed in a hotel here in town.

BK - That's right.  but it's more recent than his saying his brother would probably never step on the  stage again.

After a fall of 30 feet and broken vertebrae, I think Patrick is being overly optimistic. There's going to be a lot of physical therapy and problems in his body that will never heal completely.

Have you seen Spiderman, FJL? Aside from the special effects, is it a good show? Good story and good music?

I just don't think any of us know anything at all - and I think an accurate reporting of what actually happened will eventually come to light.

Laura _ i saw the two very very early previews.  The story is hampered by a so-called "Geek Chorus" framing device, whose dialogue was sloppy, but I found the mythological story very exciting.  First act was far better than the second.  The lyrics are very controversial on All that Chat, but I'd compare it to Spring Awakening in quality.  If that show's craft bothered somebody, they'll be bothered here, too.

Music - hard to say - it never bored me or left me uninterested, and liked the music a lot more second time hearing it.

You haven't really heard "I'm An Indian, Too" until you've heard it in Japanese.
I wonder if it's still considered politically incorrect in Japanese.

Just watched an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" called "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." Brandon de Wilde was really good in it, so was Larry Kert in a small role.

Happiest of birthdays to DR WFO, BK's son, and Craig Brockman!


Brother.

Oops, sorry - holiday head...
Did you have some of the eggnog I made tonight? It was certainly special. Both rum and bourbon. And eggs. And plenty of whipped cream. And freshly grated nutmeg on top. Very happy potion.

Finished with my viewing and got industrious and put out plates and flatware and napkins and am now making tuna pasta salad whilst listening to wonderful music from The Railway Children.

Any of the Pointe Hotels are really nice, or they were when I was there.  There are a number of nice hotel/resorts in northern phoenix/scottsdale.  It's been a long time since I lived there.  Kerry would be the best person to ask

My dad, brother, DR Sam's BF and I went to True Grit tonight. We all absolutely loved it. Sam's BF hadn't seen the original (he's young) but the rest of us had and loved it.  We all agreed that this is the same story but a really different movie entirely.  We had a good discussion about it on the way home.  I'll tell you more if anyone wants to know, but I highly recommend seeing it.

OH, and I couldn't believe it is only $4.00 to go to an evening show here.  Amazing.  I'd be at the movies all the time if I could get in for $4.00

Ok, time to get some sleep.  Tomorrow it's pancakes and sausage for breakfast.   Today my mom bought some bloody mary mix to make on Christmas Morning. LOL.

Tuna pasta salad is made and, of course, I'm tempted to just eat it all right now.

I've gotten through about eight CDs today - the pile is still huge but now more manageable.

One of our GUESTS was looking at the 12/24/2004 postings - so many people posting who no longer frequent these here parts for various and sundried reasons, most of which are/were extremely silly, at least in my opinion.  Tempers sometimes flare in the best of families, offense is sometimes taken in the best of families but you know what, you get over it and everything rights itself if you don't run away.  Francois, Tomovoz, Dan-in-Toronto, Jay, Lulu, MattH - so many wonderful folks.  And Ann, S. Woody White and der Brucer, all of whom still stop by occasionally, but way too rarely.

Wouldn't it be nice if on this Christmas of 2010 everyone came back and started anew?  That is my Christmas wish.
