Oh, and I went for a haircut today.  Tried a different barber, on the advice of a bartender friend of ours.  I'm not happy with how it turned out, a little raggedy and frankly not short enough.  

The good news is that, because it's longer than I really wanted it, my hair won't take as long until it needs cutting again.  Then I can go back to the shop I've been to before.

That brought us to page five?

Instead of our regular dance, how about some good news der Brucer got on the phone today:

[move=left,scroll,6,transparent,100%][size=20]JENNY ACED HER CHEM EXAM![/size][/move]

That's worth dancing about!

(Hope this didn't cinerama for anyone, but this kind of good news is worth it.)

Oh, RLP, don't be such a poop.  Just be happy, dear.  We're all happy - if people want to make one sentence posts to run the numbers up, let them.  We've got quality, we've got quantity - or, to quote Mr. Maltby and Mr. Shire - "I want it all"

I watched the FRASIER retrospective, but turned on the DVR for the actual last episode because there is no TV series more striking in high definition than CSI.

Despite its record number of Emmy Awards won over its first 10 seasons (eclipsing the record held for so long by THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW), I've never warmed to the show. I've watched episodes here and there over the years, mainly because I enjoyed Dan Butler's performance as Bulldog. He became merely a recurring character some years ago, however, so you have to be lucky to catch him on an episode now.

I was sad to see FRIENDS end (though I knew it was time). I think FRASIER overstayed its welcome by at least three years. Had it ended sooner, it wouldn't have set that Emmy record, but it would have gone out in more a blaze of glory than as almost an afterthought as has happened to it now.

Before FRASIER came on early this evening, I put in the Disney hodgepodge FUN AND FANCY FREE. I'd had it on videotape for years, and found the laserdisc in a cutout bin for a couple of dollars some years back. When I was having trouble with my laserdisc machine several months ago, I looked at my laser collection and decided I would slowly start replacing whichever lasers I could with their DVD counterparts, and this was one that I have just now gotten around to watching.

I wasn't born when it and those other Disney music medley animated features came out (MAKE MINE MUSIC and MELODY TIME), but I wonder if people during those years began to wonder if Disney would ever get around to doing an entire animated feature again. It must have seemed an eternity to them between BAMBI and CINDERELLA.

Good Evening!

Whew!  It's hot!!  -Yes, I know, I've said that before, but...  Unfortunately, the A/C in the theatre was still not working properly, so I took a nice cool shower once I got back to the apartment..  Ahh.. and now I'm snacking on some very good - and organic - potato chips (seasoned with salt and pepper!), and I suspect some ice cream will be consumed in a little while...

So...  Catch you after a little while.... and some ice cream.. ;)

I loved the Mr. Belvedere series.  Clifton Webb was so great no matter what he did.  

Thanks to Jose for filling me in.  Sorry you were ill.   Better now, I hope?

And thanks to all for keeping the home fries burning.

So have you caught up with your reading Kerry? And of course with your emails? Good to see you back. You have been missed.

I have just driven to the local post office and I arrive back to more hot pies. of course after 15 minutes they may not be hot any more.

At last the "Triplets" (Renunion) has made it to a cinema release in OZ. Great reviews. It's one of my favourite DVDs. Despite showing it to quite a few friends, I have not tired of it. I think "Troy" starts here this weekend. As Herman's Hermits sang,  - "A Must To Avoid". I don't think it would be my kind of movie at all.

Last year, I would have agreed with you about Frasier.  It had grown rather stale, and simply wasn't as funny as it had once been.  This last season, however, seemed a return to the good ol' days, with the return of the original writing team.  I lost interest in Friends probably four or five seasons ago, and didn't even watch last week's finale.  Never did regain its charm for me.

Oh Thursday night.  I started to watch the FRASIER finale....but moved on to other things.  I liked the performers, but the situation was so strange, that a lot of the laughs were telegraphed....as if that doesn't happen anywhere on television.  Anyway....I think Frasier will do better in reruns as the years go on, but I really think Friends will fade away.

After all we still have I LOVE LUCY, but "staples" such as ALL IN THE FAMILY have moved onto TVLAND....and no MAUDE or GOOD TIMES.....FRAISER I think was more character driven...and FRIENDS got very tiresome in the middle of the run....but that's just my opinion.

TROY opens tomorrow!

Good Times is showing regularly on one of the cable nets, not sure which one.  But it's being shown.

Good evening!

Well, I had some more potato chips, and then I had one of those Eskimo Pie Low-Carb Fudge Bars.  Not bad.  Not great.  -And think it's mainly low carb since they beat so much air into it.  It was very light all around.

And now I'm practically becoming non-functional... So...

Goodnight.

*Oh, and when I was in Brigadoon in high school, I was the seller who sang, "Ale for sale or barter there, At the fair, Laddie!"  -Boy that was high!  Oh, and I also did the sword dance (since I knew how to "spot" during the turns - and we had a choreographer who happened to be a Scot!  Very good dance!!).  Hmmm.. I just realized, did the people in Brigadoon drink ale for breakfast? ;)

As I was saying... Goodnight.

Haven't thought of this in years -- I was very good at "spotting" when I was studying ballet. Never got dizzy. Gave me a great sense of achievement - 'cause I was no Pavlova - but I was aces at spotting.

I don't remember if it was specifically Angus' part, but I sang that line also.  Yes, it was very high! :o
