George, you do know that they are telecasting The Emmy's twice tonight?

I do...I'm going to record the first broadcast so that if we don't watch them at my sister's, I can watch them when I get home.  I'm also recording "Die Walkure" on PBS right now.  I've never seen any of the Ring cycle, and I'm enjoying it.

Die Walküre has two intermissions. -As one reviewer has put it, two "well-deserved" intermissions. I'm not sure if that applies to the singers and orchestra or the audience? ;)

And now...

I really should pack my luggage. I have to head to the airport around 8:30 tomorrow morning, and I'm already kind of tuckered out after all of today's excitement and activities.

Laters...

Was just nosing around amazon and found a book coming out in November called Hard Times, which is a look at the adult stage musicals of the 1970s - but there's a huge number of pages about Nudie Musical and me, with lots of quotes from my There's Mel book and other interviews.  I pre-ordered it, of course.

Oh...

Here are the two "flights" of ice cream my friend, Amanda, and I ordered earlier today at Salt & Straw:


Down the Left: Coffee & Bourbon, Strawberry Honey Balsamic Vinegar with Cracked Black Pepper, Brown Butter Popcorn with Pink Peppercorns, Aquabeet (aquavit and beets).

Down the Right: Horchata Sorbet, Amber Malted Plums, Feast's Oregon Bounty (salted chocolate ice cream with whiskey-candied hazelnuts with a Touvelle cheese buttercream), Chef Series: Ox (Foie Gras S'Mores).

You can read quite a bit of your section in the sample on Amazon.com

Voldemort is basically a middle school girl: he has a locket, a diary, a tiara, a ring, and is completely obsessed with a teenage boy.

I'll probably put it on three discs, then.  Since I can only record to regular, standard not hi-def DVDs, that'll make it look as good as it can be.  I can put it all on one disc, but four+ hours will be degrade the visual quality.

And...

My bags are packed.

My alarms are set.

And I'm sleepy.

Goodnight.
