Will playing a "Vanilla Ice" Cd help George? you can probably download one. Then of course "vanilla' is yet another "She Loves Me" reference for the night.

The conversation never dies here at haineshisway.com.  Besides if we just fall short of five hundred posts it gives us something to strive for.

I've been watching Gypsy, and one of the things I love about it is that it recreates the original Robbins choreography.  Paul Wallace's All I Need Now is the Girl is brilliant, and Natalie Wood is heartbreaking watching him do it and yearning to be his partner.

Rosalind Russell was a wonderful film actress and her nuances as Rose are fantastic - and she's also very funny (witness her pulling out her hairpin and advancing on the balloon girl in the opening).

I am not a fan of Vanilla Ice's music.  I do have four (4) recordings of She Loves Me on CD, so that's a possibility.  

The biggest problem with making a cheesecake at 11:30 at night is that I can't use an electric mixer!  I have to mix everything by hand!   :P

And I have to unwrap 14 ounces of individually wrapped caramels!  Do you know how many there are in 14 ounces?  Well, give me some time and I'll let you know!  I'm making a chocolate turtle cheesecake--chocolate crust and filling with caramel and pecans...MMM!!

Mixing by hand is far more therapeutic and rewarding George. I am a baker's son. I don't do much cooking at home (Colin loves to cook) but I still make cookies (biscuits!) and that deligthful English afternoon tea fare: scones.  I certainly would not use a mixer for any of it.

Applause does exist because I have a tape of it which a friend made me.  It's quite entertaining in its own way.

There's about fifteen minutes left before I lock these here posts - I think we have a fighting chance.

Thanks, but I get enough practice, Tom.   ;)

Anyway, I counted and there are 55 individually wrapped caramels that I have to individually unwrap.  What was I thinking??

Okay, this is a vanity post to help get to 500 (and I'm not sure if I posted this before), but on Tuesday I drove a friend to get an MRI on her knees.  She had to take some pills to help her relax because she is extremely claustraphobic.  Anyway, I brought "Benjamin Kritzer" with me (the book, not the boy) and she was MRI'd for 1 and 1/2 hours.  I read to page 120 without stopping!  That's more than half the book!  I just wanted to re-read it.  That's the end of my post.

I have no knowledge of whatever the topic of the day was. It was so long ago (490+ posts!) that I don't even remember what show we were miscasting today.

Yes, Funny Girl. Never saw it, so I'm useless there. But I'll always put in a vote for Carol Channing!

If I were clever enough I'd choreograph (and post) a 500th poster dance!

But I'm not (clever enough), so I won't (choreograph a 500th poster dance).  I will now stop posting and actually make my cheesecake.  But I'll stay logged in because I'm still awake!

Indeed DR Laura is herself a "Funny Girl".
George: Is there some sort of allowance made in the recipe for the eating of at least half of the caramels as you unwrap them? - Somewhat like wine in recipes - one spoonful for the recipe for each glass drunk by the chef.

Well, I did buy about 18 ounces of caramels and the recipe only calls for 14 ounces, so I do have some extras (on purpose)!
