Matthew good health vibes to DP.

MBarnum,  I think Heath is a great name (I was also a fan).
I will empty my box now.  Thanks.

RLP I think the double standard, or I should say I hope it has changed with the teacher who went to jail.  I do believe the age of those boys should make a difference in this situation.

We did limbo.  Keith says he was great at it-right!   ;D

I wasn’t too bad.  It helped being short.  There was a time when I danced and I could go back very far which helped with the limbo.  

I remember Bryan winning a few limbo contests at Bar Mitzvah’s, including his own.

No photos.  You also caught me just as I was about to shut off the computer.

Goodnight.

Well, we braved the rain and went and saw SIDEWAYS.  Glad we did.  Well acted, well written.  Very funny and touching.

I haven't caught up on all the posts yet, so maybe somebody has done this... The deluge outside made me think of rain songs... Some favorites out there?
For me, off the top of my (wet) head:
IN THE EARLY MORNING RAIN
SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN
STORMY WEATHER
I'M ALWAYS CHASING RAINBOWS
FAMOUS BLUE RAINCOAT
APRIL SHOWERS
HERE'S THAT RAINY DAY

I've been playing with iMovie.  Very fun.  I'm just doing stupid stuff, and getting used to how it works.  For example, I created a montage of stills from the Ray Courts shows accompanied by Guy Haines singing You Must Believe in Spring.  I need about fifty more stills, however, to make it through to the end of the song.  I've got lovely cross dissolves built in between pics and the "Ken Burns" effect is on (slow zoom in to the photo).  It's lovely.

And lest we forget, the night is young, which is more than I can say.  There is lots more Limboing to be done before the next craze kicks in at midnight.

Dr Matth, I am sorry that your date was cancelled. I hope the same does not happen to me as I have an early date tomorrow with a guy I met at the New Years Eve party...his name is Heath...(yes, his mom was a fan of THE BIG VALLEY!).

I was a fan of the actor playing Heath, too. Also a fan of the actor playing Nick! Those were two really sexy men.

Since a friend asked to see COLLATERAL tomorrow night at my house, I put it on hold and pulled SOYLENT GREEN off the shelf. Looked pretty good in anamorphic widescreen.

Okay, I'm caught up.  Wheww!

Congrats TCB and Merde for tonight!

Good news, Danise.

And more rain songs I like but didn't list were mentioned.

My eyes are really tired - I've been writing on and off for the last 12 hours, so it's time for a break. I might come back later, but maybe not.

Good Evening!

Back from the show...  Two more tomorrow, two more on Sunday, then a Day of Baking - formerly known as a Day Off.  ;)

And then the weird schedule starts at Arena.  We have a Noon show next Tuesday but no Tuesday night show.  Then the rest of the week is "normal".  The following week we have an evening show on Monday night - which happens to be Martin Luther King Day as well as the day of the Inauguration festivities.  Apparently, some school group bought out the house.  The audience will be comprised of middle-school and high school students.  Said students will have spent all day attending the Inauguration.  Then they will be coming to the show for their evening activity.  Ugh.

These types of audiences are never good - they're tired, they smell - god forbid it rains that day, they did not pick to go to the theatre, etc...  It's gonna be "fun".  Ugh...

And then we're off that Tuesday (instead of being off that Monday), but we come back Wednesday for another Noon show with a show in the evening.

And then the week after that...

It's been two very strange days at work (today and yesterday).  We're getting an entirely new computer system and my department's (acquisitions) access was taken down yesterday.  The new system will not be available until Monday, unless something goes horribly wrong.  The new system (Horizon...and Windows-based) is the next generation of the old (Dynix...and Linux-based)...And the worst part is that the "training database" was not set up the way we're going to have the real thing set up.

DR George - Oh, I feel for you!  The library I work for migrated just a year ago from DRA to Horizon.  I'm in reference and was both on the team that selected the system (took some heat from my coworkers for that!) and a trainer for public service staff.  The "training database" set-up was such a joke.  Our tech people were not amused when I started referring to it as the "pretend" database!  It's not fatal, though, and we've adapted pretty well.  Now we're on to other challenges like patron-initiated state-wide resource sharing and 24/7 online chat reference.  Oh, and we just converted to Windows XP and MS Outlook.  Wonder what's next...

Anyway, good luck and keep your sense of humor (you'll need it).

And I must go out now and get some foodstuffs.  I so wish I had something here to make but I just don't so I won't because I can't and I shan't.  I'll be back shortly.

What about the cookies and biscotti?  Or do I need to send more?

Do you have a checklist with the various codes? Thanks.

When in Word, pull down INSERT, select SYMBOL, select either Arial or Times New Roman as a font, and all the short cuts are there for the pickin'.

N.B. You must use the numeric keyboard, not the numbers keys on the main keyboard - when undergoing sterility treatments using a laptop, use the same pull down sewuwnce and after slecting your desired charter, use he INSERT button at the bottom of the Symbol pop-up menu.

Biscotti are long gone, cookies are going fast.  I was trying to watch an Edgar Wallace movie (boxes one and two arrived today, although only four of the eight movies are subtitled and have dubs).  I'm watching the first of the series, but I kept nodding off and you can't do that in these movies.  So, I'm refreshing myself and will try again.

Has Ann caught up?

I'm wearing my Limbo bra and am ready to rumble.
