THE GLOBAL NOTES
« on: January 06, 2005, 11:59:05 PM »

Well, you've read the notes, you've travelled far and wide with the notes and now it is time for you to post until the global cows come home.  To it, I say.

Jose got in under the wire, which makes him our Limbo poster.

That's an idea for a Friday - let's play the Limbo game.   I just did the Limbo - the stick was quite low to the ground but I managed to get under it - just.  Who here can give us the lyrics to the Limbo song.

I'm not even going to admit how long I was refreshing the last page of the Notes in B, wondering why people had stopped posting...

I cannot think of any snacky food to go with my cherry water.  Would rice work?

Rice is a snacky food.  Too bad you're not here - you could have a biscotti.

Where is Chubby Checker? (not to be confused with Fats Domino). I think he has been doing the Limbo Rock and the Twist and the Pony and generally Messingaround in OZ lately.

Let's hit the floor like we did before - let's limbo some more.

I just did the Limbo again and I'm lying on the floor unable to get up (I typed this post with my feet - honest).

BK - I totally understand what you mean by getting your diet started.  I'm in the same boat.  I guess a week ago I declared right here on this very site that one of my New Year's resolutions was to lose some weight - at least 10 "solid" pounds over the next 10 weeks - just in time for Jewish Thighs On Broadway...

Well, I've thought a lot about that over the past week, and I've tried here and there to make a very concerted effort to eat better, get some exercise, etc.  But all I've done is "think" about it.  Not "do" it.  So...

I've also been eating very bad that past week.  I almost felt like I was eating self-destructively at times.  Of course, the reason - a.k.a. excuse - was that the donut, cookie, bowl of ice cream, serving of french fries, etc. - I was eating at the time was going to be the last one for a while.  My sort of farewell to "bad food" for the time being.  Sometimes I would have a few "farewells" in one day.  -And I did have that pizza after the show tonight.  So...

Part of what I was just researching on the net were some exercise video/DVDs that I've been looking at for a while.  I've used some of them in the past, and I wanted to get some of the more advanced workouts.  So... I just ordered a set, and I also got another workout video for my Pilates machine.  -I like Pilates for the built-in stretching aspect of the workouts - my flexibility is practically non-existent right now.  And after today's shopping trip to the commissary with my father, the fridge and freezer is stocked pretty healthily too.  *It actually helps that my father is on sort of a restricted diet during his recovery period - it's a very healthy, "normal" diet.

So, I guess today is my "First Day"...

-OK - Time to step out of the confessional... and I already know what my penance will be.  ;)

Most recent DVD (last night): an audience with Kenneth Williams.  Very funny.
Cds: "Thrillington"
         "Full Circle" Birtles, Shorrock, Goble.

Both reasonably obscure Cds and very enjoyable.

La Jolie Femme here. Hello! Sorry to have missed yesterday entirely.  I have no idea how to navigate these posts. Sing though I may, I have no control over my Dell Inspiron, and I haven't read a response today for fiddling about like so much fish.

Here's as much as I know:

Every limbo boy and girl all around the limbo world
Come and do the limbo rock, all around the limbo clock,
Limbo ankle, limbo knee, bend back like a limbo tree
All around the limbo clock, come and do the limbo rock.

 And then, something about a limbo moon above, we will fall in limbo love.

I DUNNO! It's all so much white noise. I was seriously smashed on Purple Passion at the TKE autumn shindig when I first staggered through the elegant and fanciful limbo. The words, like the night, fade into blissful amnesia. Nuff said.

 Night.

Limbo lower now!  How low can you go?

Where is Chubby Checker now that we need him...and just how low can a guy named Chubby go anyway?

MattH, I think I voted for 3 of the 5 Turner DVDs being released:  The Letter, Ivanhoe, and Random Harvest.  I may have also voted for King Solomon's Mines which, though I love the book, I don't think is a particularly good movie.  There has never been a good movie version of the book.

Yesterday, I saw Frank Thring in THE VIKINGS.  DanssssesssssSalome!  Today I watched one of the great Boetticher/Scott westerns, THE TALL T with Richard Boone as a wonderful lead villain with his two henchmen Skippy Hoemeier and Henry Silva.  Good stuff, though I have no idea why it is called The Tall T.  And tonight we watched one of our favourite westerns TOMBSTONE.

I have not yet decided what will be in my DVD & CD yet.  Perhaps in the video, TWELFTH NIGHT with Alec Guinness, Joan Plowright, & Ralph Richardson...or maybe Sir Peter Hall's Orestesia done at the National.  On the nightstand, THE PRETENDERS by Henrik Ibsen which I will now reitre and try to finish reading.

Frank Thring!  We must have a Frank Thring festival.  And a Rondo Hatton festival.

We must all play the Limbo game, and the WUSSBURGERS will be so unhappy they missed it.

Tomovoz, Kenneth Williams uttered one of my favourite movie lines of all time in CARRY ON, CLEO:  "Infamy!  Infamy!  They've all got in for me!"

I love Carry on Cleo and own it on DVD.  I love when Kenneth sits on a laurel and says "Ooh, I'm sittin' on me laurels."

Who does Frank play in THE VIKINGS?  Why don't I remember him?   I must not have watched that movie as closely as I thought I did.

And now I'm truly wussing out, going to bed, and reading.  Though I think the lovely wife may now be hooked and never come to bed again.  I'll find her tomorrow in front of her computer, HHW on the screen with her eyes fried, mumbling, "What is it, fish?"

Chubby could go pretty low as I recall.  I've gone lower, however.  And recently, too.
