DR Danise I agree with DR TCB. Contact the AC show.

DR Danise - I went ahead and Twitter'd @Anderson and @AndersonCooper as well as cc:'d @AngiesList. You never know who just might be checking their social media accounts.

Matthew, life is too short to hang on to a bad work environment.  It is best to find another job first, but you have to take your mental health into consideration!

And speaking of Elaine Stritch and David Letterman...

There's THIS.

This is hilarious, isn't it, Jose?  I watched it recently with my sister when I was visiting.  We both thought it was great!

Have you guys seen this parody of "Call ME Maybe".

It is set in a bookstore and called "Read It Maybe". Very funny.

Well, I'm off to a TAO Board meeting.  I think we'll find out if our fund raiser actually raised some funds...I'm sure that it did. :)

Be back later.

JohnG, there have been no further problems on the Kritzerland site.  The host is now saying it was not hacked at all but that the problems were a combination of internal things going wrong - they say they've implemented safeguards from it happening again.  So apparently the jerk who was taking credit for it was an even bigger jerk than we thought.  I still think he should be exposed and ridiculed to the world.

Yes, he should be verbally strung up.

Caught up with Noel Coward's "This Happy Breed" tonight and the Ronald Neale interview also on the disc. Highly enjoyable. And what a cast: Stanley Holloway, John Mills, Kay Walsh, Celia Johnson.

Night, all.

And...

Jason Robert Brown, Shoshana Bean, The Caucasian Rhythm Kings and special guest(!), Tony Danza, put on a great show tonight at 54 Below. And there were a couple of notables in the audience tonight too: Hal Prince, Daisy Prince, Ted Chapin, etc., etc...

And the food was pretty good too... And it turned out that the Head Chef at 54 Below is Andre Marrero who is a fellow alum of VCU.

And...

Frankly...

I'm tired. Very tired. It's been a long week, and tomorrow will be a sort of long day.

So...

Goodnight.

ATTENTION PLEASE! BREAKING NEWS IN THE GARDEN TODAY!!!

1. I saw my first monarch of the 2012 Fall Migration.

2. My saguaro cactus in the front yard has the beginnings of its first arm. (This happens at about age 75. I have been watching for almost 32 years since we moved into this house.)

Two reviews of Legally Blonde have been posted.  Both say the band is too loud and that is stumbled through the Overture. 

HERE is one

Be back later.

We did!  We did make money!  We now have a nice little pot o' dough and our up-coming production will be an evening of one-acts, co-produced with another local group, Prodigal Son Productions.  We'll have eight performances over two weekends. :)
