Amazon delivered a package yesterday and the delivery person left it in the lobby under the mailboxes. Well, I went to pick it up this morning. The package was there, only it had been opened and the items removed.

I am very unhappy about this.


:( Are there security cameras which could show who did this?

So, yesterday afternoon, I engaged in the first (and probably only) Great VHS Purge of the 21st Century!

Wow!

They are videos of stuff recorded off TV, but I never watched them.  A LOT of the videos were of The Rosie O'Donnell Show from the 1990s! :o

I slept some. I kept having the same dream over and over again. It was about helping prisoners escape. Sometimes, it involved escaping from Nazis, others from prison. Hitchcock was somehow involved but offscreen, not even in a cameo.

I do not like sleeping pills, though pain meds are also an issue for me.

The new water heater arrives at about 12:30. Could be earlier.

Is it tankless?

I'm in a pretty good mood this morning. I slept very well, although the cats became quite rowdy around 5:00. There have been - so far - no frustrating moments, falls, spills, and best of all . . . the refund landed!


Congrats on FINALLY getting the refund!! :D

I don't have an answer for the TOD......I usually avoid TC as much as possible.

I feel the same. I find Mr Cruise rather repellant, although I did like The Firm, and I would not mind seeing that again.

I too loathe Mr. Cruise. The only picture of his I liked was one of his first, Losing It. I disliked him immensely in Jack Reacher (I haven’t read the books), but Werner Herzog was a great villain.

If you had read the books you would have hated him even more as Reacher.

Alan Ritchan does an excellent job as Reacher in the tv series.  Recently we saw Ritchan in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and I was pleased to see he did not move or sound at all like Reacher.

I'd offer them to DR John G., but I don't think they'd do much good.

It’s cool here. We’re getting rain from that tropical storm.

Lovely.

No. And they’re still installing the new one.

And Kouigin amannn?

Fantastic pastry that originated in Brittany many hundreds of years ago.  Lots of buttery layers, sometimes with fillings or plain.  Sweetish, but not too sweet.


Ooh! That sounds like my kind of pastry!

Damn. That's a big one.

My first awareness of Sutherland was in Little Murders. He was always good. One of those who always made a character special.

I'm up, I'm up - three hours of sleep. Was up at five-thirty for reasons unknown. Couldn't fall back asleep so I followed two auctions, which was interesting in light of the Sondheim auction, since one was at the same auction house and had a lot of theater, film, and music stuff, including three Sondheim items which, of course, went for large bucks. Why? Because some nitwit woman posted in the Sondheim Facebook group and alerted everyone to it - and come they did and over paid for the three items in amazing ways. If you want something signed by Sondheim, it's really not hard to find items, especially posters, photos, etc. - and for reasonable money. One person paid about 2500 bucks for a lot that included five Sondheim notes to some guy who sent him things. They're all signed formally rather than Steve, and have no interesting content. You may recall that I offered up ninety such notes to someone Sondheim actually knew and worked with for 5K - I'll bet people regret not grabbing that archive now in that Indiegogo campaign. Each of those notes would now go for two or three hundred each, perhaps more. Funny stuff. And then some of the nitwits stayed and bid up other stuff, then got bored and left, after which things calmed way down and there were many, MANY great bargains to be had.

There was also an illustration art auction at Swann galleries. I found the selection rather wanting, but some of stuff I wouldn't even hang on my wall went for thousands of dollars, some considerably more than that. Fascinating to watch and both auctions were not stuffed to the gills with so many items that it becomes tiring sitting through it all. The Doyle auction had 203 lots and lasted from seven (CA time) to about ten. Illustration one started two hours later and is still going on.

Sad news about Donald Sutherland. So many fine performances: Don’t Look Now, Klute, Pride and Prejudice, MASH, Ordinary People, all different, all memorable.

My first memory of seeing Donald Sutherland is M*A*S*H. That and Don't Look Now are two of my all-time favorite movies. I also thought he was wonderful in The Day of the Locust, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Six Degrees of Separation. I think the last thing I saw him in might be Pride and Prejudice, an Austen version I disliked although I thought the casting was good.

I left Day of the Locust off my list. He was great in that, especially when he causes the riot at the end.
