I haven't heard of a child. They had a long-term but very discreet relationship. I think Leibowitz had a child by artificial insemination, but I'm not sure. Who am I all of a sudden, Rona Barrett?

Must get ready to go out. Laters!

My memory is that Leibowitz had the child but she and Sontag were the parents.

Love that barbecued chicken.  Faboo.  Yep, 1967 was Evening Primrose's only TV showing, part of the marvelous failed ABC Stage 67 series.  I also have the even rarer On the Flip Side with Ricky Nelson and Joanie Sommers, with score by Bacharach and David and direction by Joe Layton - unlike Evening Primrose (all copies look like crap because they're dupes of dupes of dupes) my On the Flip Side is spectacular - right off Miss Sommers' three-quarter inch tape, which was right off the master.


Oh, I loved that show!  I had the album for years and years.  I think someone stole it from me, or got tired of me playing it, and threw it away.

Juliana A. Hansen was here and we had a nice chat.

Now I am awaiting the arrival of the Pogues.

No, I never had the pleasure of working with Jerry Orbach, but would have loved to.

Evening all!

I have a funny to share with all of you.  I hope I donít offend my Jewish friends but here is what happened.  The new lady I work with is Jewish-the strict kind.  We get along great.  Anyway, She was looking everywhere for an employeeís file (who is Spanish) and went to the file room.

Soon, she came back and said she had got it!

At which point, I slapped my forehead and said it was a MIRACLE!  She found Jesus in the file room!  She had a blank look for a moment, then it hit her and she cracked up.  

Ok, I know it was the Spanish version of the name but itís spelled the same.  

I really didnít know Jerry Orbach but I am sorry to hear about his passing.

Congrats to BK for the new computer.  I hope it does everything you need or want it do without any problem.

I read in the paper that they are going to have wireless computer access for free in Downtown Tampa starting next month.  Iím waiting to get the hand out they are going to have that tells how to hook up to it.  My pocket PC should be able to connect once I get whatever hardware they say I need.  Wonít that be too, too?

I also read in the paper that the quake actually affected downtown Tampa.  They said you may not have felt it but the city rose and fell a little bit.  Iím wondering if the winds we had that night (that no one knew were coming) had anything to do with it as well.

Happy Birthday, Maya, where ever you are.  Have a wonderful day.

I forget (sorry) who said something about Errol Flynn movies being released?  Which ones were they?  I canít WAIT!  I love Errol Flynn.

Iíve run out of time and must be off to the land of wuss.  Have a good evening all!  :)

I saw Million Dollar Baby this afternoon, Dear Readers.  It's a very good film.  Though it may have had a Hollywood budget, this is not your typical Hollywood film.  While female boxing plays a central role in the story, this film is about a great deal more than female boxing, and it takes a couple of very unpredictable turns.  I particularly liked the way Mr. Clint Eastwood and the screenwriters left it up to the audience to connect many of the dots.  Mr. Eastwood gives a fine performance, as does Mr. Morgan Freeman.  Miss Hillary Swank's performance now sits at the top of my list of best performances by a leading actress from this past year.

Thank you DRLaura.  Today Echo and I returned to our hiking group and had a wonderful time.  On our return the specialist called and has a new cancer treatment he believed we should try on her.  So tomorrow, hesitantly, we are going to see if a biopsy can be done to determine what type of cancer she has.

Matt H with our similar tastes in off beat shows Iím surprised you didnít like LOST IN TRANSLATION.

MBarnum-nice pictures.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAYA!!

Saw Jerry in two LAW & ORDER episodes tonight - one from Angie Harmon's last season on the show (on TNT-HD) and then on NBC at 10, one from last season. Both were reruns, but I thoroughly enjoyed them.

The evening news on NBC just had a wonderful tribute to Jerry Orbach.  The film critic doing the tribute said there are two of the new LAW & ORDER spinoff episodes that he'll be seen in.  I gather tonight's episode was dedicated to him as well.

No, DR Jane, I did not like LOST IN TRANSLATION at all. I found it slow and meandering and involving a bunch of people I really didn't care about at all. I am SO glad I did not pay to see it in a theater. A friend loaned me his DVD.

That's great news, DR elmore.

Yes, the shows tonight were dedicated to his memory on both TNT and NBC.

I understand they dimmed the lights of Broadway for him tonight, too. A most fitting tribute.

Look who finally got out of futon. I am relaxing as hard as I can before school starts again in January.

Actually, I did get up yesterday to go talk to my advisor on The Fifth Floor. Her name is Ms. Laws (pronounced "Stewart." Tell me that's not weird.) I got signed up for a whole mess of weird classes I don't want to take. Should be a perfectly miserable semester.

We got all your rain today.  Much needed but not very convenient.  
The very butch Dan is on, I see.

I wish prosperity for all of us--- and soon, please very soon.

It is a shame about Jerry Orbach- a very talented man.  Not many like that.  However I still prefer Guy Haines' version odf "She Likes Basketball."

Good Evening!

Back from the show...  But before the show, I headed over to Pentagon City to check out some stuff at Macy's.  Surprisingly, it was not at all busy.  At least when I got there.  A bunch of the clerks looked visibly tired, frustrated and/or in "don't ask me a question" mode.

There was one chipper guy who was manning one of the registers, and he seemed OK.  But then I heard him answering a query from a lady who was waiting to be rung up.  She pointed out that the woman who was being rung up on the other side of the counter had actually gotten there after she had, and wondered why she was not the actual next person in line then.  Well, the clerk responded, "Well, it's up to you to speak up and put your merchandise down on the counter."  -What kind of an answer is that?!?!?  At least she was then the "next" person in line, and since two registers had opened up, she was being rung up at the same time the that the lady who had "cut in" was being rung up.  In any case...

I was on a mission to find a new tea kettle for my parents.  I noticed that the one I was used to seeing on the stove was no longer there.  My mom had resorted to pulling out her small copper kettle from the sideboard- I think this was the first time it had ever been used, and she's had it for ages.  It worked, but it took forever for it to heat and bring the water to boil - just bad design/construction.  After walking around a while, I finally found the table with the tea kettles.  So many choices, so many price points.  I eventually settled on the new OXO "uplift" one.  Very cool, and it was on sale.

Then while walking around a bit more, I decided to buy my parents a few new pieces of cookware.  -My parents - even though they are both in the food service industry - have a bad habit of continuing to use pots and pans way past the point that they're still functional - or even safe.  -Let's just say I was getting tired of finding pieces of non-stick coating in my food.  So...  After checking out the various displays, I finally settled on a 7-piece Cuisinart set - anodized and non-stick.  It too was on sale.  *I still think it's sort of misleading to label a lid as a "piece".  Yes, it's a 7-piece set, but it's only four pans and three lids.  In any case...

Once I got up to the register - and I ended up with one lady who looked like she was ready to go home hours ago - my Macy's card would not go through.  She tried it again, still didn't go through.  -That made her very "happy".  Well, she pointed to where the courtesy phones were, and I headed there and made the phone calls.  It turns out that it was a 'security' issue.  I had applied for the card while I was out in LA this past summer, and I had only used it in LA.  This was the first time I had used it on the east coast, and the computer was kicking out the sale as a precaution.  I also had no balance on the card currently, so that was causing a flag to go up somewhere in their system.  Well, I made my way back to the counter, got my stuff rung up again, and headed out to the car.  OH!  And the best of the while thing is that I also got a 15% discount off my entire purchase due to a promotion with the Macy's card!  *A woman behind was looking at the discount being tallied up on the register display, and she was wondering how I got it since the holiday coupons they had did not apply to some of the sale items.  Bonus!

-OK - that was long, rambling and boring...

In short, I went to Macy's and bought my parents a new tea kettle, and a set of cookware.  And it was all on sale, plus I got an extra 15% off the sale prices too!

...And Pentagon City had recently installed a brand new parking system.  It's like those ones at airports where you pre-pay for your parking before you leave the terminal, then just put your ticket in at the gate and leave.  There are new, BIG signs all over the place telling you to take your parking ticket with you.  There are also BIG machines at each store exit to the garage which "talk", and ask you to take care of your parking fee now rather than later.  And then once you get to the exit lanes, there are BIG sign saying which lanes are for monthly parkers, which ones are for Cash/Credit Cards, and which ones of for Pre-Pay.  Well, they might as well take those signs down since there lots of drivers who kept having to call some attendants over to let them pay - they were in the pre-pay lanes.  Thankfully, mall management did have people at each gate, but still... READ THE SIGNS PEOPLE!!!!!!

OK... Rant over.

-By the way, good show tonight.  Eh...
