I think I may hold the HHW record for the shortest marriage. I was young and foolish...about 5 years old. We had been boyfriend and girlfriend for quite awhile. Our parents were best friends and we got married in her bathroom at a party with my sister presiding. The marriage lasted about 5 minutes before I realized what a mistake I had made. I had my sister draw up the divorce papers right there. When she gave them to my soon to be ex-wife, she ripped them up and ran from the room crying. We sort of drifted apart after that day, but we insisted that we would not let it affect our parents friendship and I am glad to say they are still friends today. ;)

DRJoey, LOL!

Given what I've seen on feelings about reality shows on this site, I would only enter this marital competition once I knew how great the prizes were going to be.  The problem is, the lady I love on site is already marrried, but maybe for several million, a nice trip, lots of luxury gift items, and a speedy Nevada divorce, it could happen.   I don't think a carton of Diet Coke would be nearly enough.

DRJose, I'm afraid DRMBarnum is only interested in marrying Paul Haber; the obessession (a Calvin Klein reference) is quite strong.

DRGeorge, I was one of the requesters of the Radio interview CD.

I remember a college roommate in the middle ages majoring in "systems analysis," an archaic term I never hear today, and I believe that was my first hearing of anything computer-related.  While friends like Jim Stenborg jumped onto the computerized music bandwagon in the early 1980s, I insisted I woud never go near a computer!  In 2001, when this Musical Theatre project began, all the copyists were givien beautiful new Macs by the Packard Humanities Institute and John McGlinn kept insisting I should learn to do Finale.  At some time, between recording BABES IN TOYLAND in June 2001 and THE LADY OF THE SLIPPER in Sept. 2001, a friend offered me his 1998 Mac, and I decided to take it.  In October 2001, this huge object took up all my table space and became my new obsession.  I can do essentially three things with it: email, eBay, and HHW, and I still have no interest in learning Finale.  I think it's a great music copying tool, but it has no charm for me as a means of writing, no more than a magic slate had to do with sketching on paper.

In Sept 2003, my Mac gave up the ghost, primarily, I believe, because of all the heavy Finale work it had seen from its original owner.  There was a Mac sale at TekServe, a great Mac store on 23rd Street, and I got a new eMac and an HP printer, so now I can do four things:  email, eBay, HHW, and print.

DRJoey, did you mention something about being in "Godspell" a couple of days ago?  If my faulty mind is correct, tell us more.

Yes. Sorry I had forgotten to get back to you about that. We are doing it at my church and it has turned out to be much much better than I ever expected! We are having performances the second weekend of February. We manged to work something out where we are just  taking a freewill donation and we are going to take that money and put it towards our church's haiti mission because they are basically in a famine down there. (Not sure how they worked it out with Theatre Maximus but they gave their approval.) I was talking with a friend who graduated last year about it and was telling her we had this very large cross. She the proceeded to ask me what the cross was for. We looked at each other for about ten seconds of stunned silence before we started laughing hysterically.

DRJOEY - I think the Yahoo Search engine will start listing a site once it has reached a certain number of hits...because it and Google, I think, list sites by popularity as determined by "hits" so your site must have been looked at MANY times.

Thanks for the info. I hope if it is getting that many hits that people are finding it useful.

It's being done with a larger cast so the roles have been split up more. I seem to be picking up more and more lines and solos as the show moves along though.   I can tell you I sing the part of Satre in Tower of Babble and I also have a solo for about a third of We Beseech Thee. I need to make sure my lines are memorized when I go back. I had almost forgotten about that.

Well I must be off! I have some errands to run with my family! After that, I need to spend some quality time with my Godspell script, score, and choreography DVD. (This is a high tech production. Yes it is!) The singing will have to wait though as I am sick. Then, I have to decide if I am healthy enough to go running. (Hopefully I won't get behind in my training.) I may be back later this afternoon. Maybe I will have a better outline of my spoken parts for you by then DRelmore.  ::)

I am back full time. I have much catching up to do, including catching up at work althought I do not have a huge insurmountable pile of work on my desk. Since this is my first day back after a month away I must put in just a short post and then away.

I do want to say again what I great time Anthony and I had with Mr. Moore on Saturday. A gentleman and a scholar is he.

Oooh, oooh, I came in this morning and read through various and sundried memos and e-mails only to find that I, Ben McLaughlin, Grants Indexing Specialist, have received an Incentive Compensation Award (the newfangled term for a year-end bonus) "For Exceptional Overall Performance During the Year"

It is so much easier to read the notes on a high speed connection.

On that note (F#) I will leave you for the time being.

Thank you, DRBen!  I have missed you on the site this past month!  I, too, had a lovely visit.  did you and anthony figure out that book title about the forensic dollhouses?

I think the year-end bonus is fantastic!  We PHI people never get a bonus, and I certainly didn't get Christmas pay from B&N.  Damn them to hell!  It wasn't my fault I couldn't go in to work on Saturday Dec. 25.  When are you and Anthony seeing AFTER THE BALL?

Happy New Year everyone.

I spent a week in the country, walking in the snow (lots), doing some work (very little) that I had taken with me, reading, eating (too much), and catching up with some of the Dear Partner's relatives.

I suffered serious HHW withdrawal, so one day I dropped into the Goderich library and visited the site. It's a beautiful and friendly little library, and the patrons must have wondered why I was laughing out loud as I browsed. (Goderich - which is on Lake Huron, about an hour west of Stratford - calls itself the prettiest town in Ontario. It is pretty, but the story is that the plans for the town accidentally got switched with those drawn up for Guelph. In any case, the library is a block away from a bakery that makes the world's most delicious donuts - yeasty, with fillings that range from real cream to tangy lemon).

I've been trying to catch up on posts since yesterday afternoon. I missed everyone. I'll be giving some thought to today's topics. Meanwhile, using a Happy Hunting reference, it's good to be here.

DR Ann - I'm glad it all came out well in the end and that you were safe.  I know how you feel though because one time I drove right into a telephone pole in the middle of a parking lot.  And to make it even worse, when the policeman arrived, he just looked at me and shook his head.  Like I needed that!  I do have to ask though, what are sugar gliders?  At first I thought they were some type of Christmas cookie, but the more I read they sound like animals.

DR Jose - Yes, I'm back at Circa.  What happened when your roommate woke up with his hand in the food?

Regarding online weddings, very intriguing.  Would we ever have to actually meet the person or could we just be "married" whenever one feels like posting.  It some ways I think it could be very convenient.  Maybe Unseemly Personal Ads are the link of the future.

Happy New Year to one and all.

My first computer was at work, I guess.  At Columbia Artists.  Can't remember much about it, except that it was DOS, and the monitor fetaured orange characters on a black background.  Don't even think it had any sort of word processing program.  And I remember the astonishment when, one holiday season, someone from the nascent Information Technology department showed us some program that would bring up a "Christmas Tree" on which several characters were blinking, like lights.  All orange on black.  "My, that's impressive," we all thought.

Our first home PC was a Dell 333, as I recall.  We got it in 1996.  It had some programs, and we were able to connect to the internet (through AOL and Prodigy's free trials, until we decided to stick with AOL), but it would take FOREVER to upload some (most) pages, and would usually crash before we were able to find what we were looking for.

Yes, DR Jose, DR Elmore3003 is correct, I will be betrothed to Paul Haber if BK can just get him to post on HHW...but when the romance goes sour (likely after the first time I try to get Mr. Haber to watch a Bollywood movie) then you can become "the other man!"

I have no clue what my first computer was but it was given to me by my brother-in-law. It did not have internet capabilities and the only thing on it was Wordperfect 5.

Next up was a Compaq purchased at Walmart for about $500. It was slow as molasses but helped introduce me to the internet. AOL was my first and only ISP and they have greatly improved over the years, I think...plus AOL has there own on-line Bollywood music radio station!!!

Now I have an H-P which runs very nicely (knock on wood).

Congrats to dRBEN on his "reward"!

Raining raining raining with flood warnings here in Indiana.  And more rain expected.   But it is 50 degrees!
