ACK--- I just found out that the materials for "Zombie Prom" do NOT include vocal books... Damn Samuel French... damn them ALL!!!!

Hmmm... I wonder if this means that they just go ahead and send out extra copies of the p/v/c score.  When I did Three Guys Naked from the Waist Down a couple of years ago, this was the case.  -The show was not a "regular" property in their library, so there was no justification to spend the time and money to come up with vocal books.

*I still remember MTI's first set of books for Into the Woods - or maybe it was Assassins.  They had literally just cut and pasted the vocal lines from the P/C score into a part!  Of course, since the books were the standard vocal part size, the notes and words had been reduced to very small print.

OH, so does this mean you've settled on Zombie Prom?

DR Matthew - I've been meaning to ask... You told us what you True Love gave to you this past Christmas, but what did you give your True Love?

The Pogues have departed - we had a splendidly splendid evening, about which more in the notes.

Back from the dinner party. Wonderful food, interesting people. And Ruff, the dog, who is now 15. I knew him when he was a rascal of a pup. He's mellowed. As have I.
G'night.

Welcome six GUESTS.  Perhaps one of you can replace the tired old WUSSBURGER.

Don't get me wrong, I'M a tired and old, too, but never a WUSSBURGER.  I don't believe in it.

Not you, Tom of Oz, for you are an authentic Ozzie - I was mocking your imitator.

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...
With today's computerized cash registers, clerks usually have to "log in" to use the register.  And, of course, a clerk can only log in to one register at a time.  Mr. Chipper was probably logged into Ms. Cut's register.  This keeps in-house theft down, and also helps management keep track of which clerks are making errors and need extra training.  

It would have made more sense if a sign had been placed on the other side of the counter, asking customers to use the side where the clerk was standing.  Not that many customers read signs when it makes them do extra work.   :P

I am quite full of food and ready to plotz.  But I shall not be a WUSSBURGER because that is not in my nature, and no matter how hard we try we cannot change our natures.
