I find it just a wee bit disheartening that yesterday we had less posts than the weekend.  It's Christmas, you know, so let's get some serious postin' goin' on, shall we?

HABERDASHER, baby, HABERDASHER!

I posted a few comments at the end of yesterday (not realizing that there was a new day) because yesterday was not yet locked!  So, I was still able to post in yesterday's posts.  Anyway, here's a question that I asked YESTERDAY:

So here's a question about professionals learing lines.  Is there a contractually obligated time limit or a fine if lines aren't learned on time?  I know rehearsals are always limited and actors have to learn their lines, but what happens if professional actors don't?

This is cool!  I can quote a post from yesterday:

I CAN STILL POST TODAY BUT TOMORROWS NOTES ARE ALREADY UP AND RUNNING!

And in yesterday's posts, I can quote THIS message! ;)

Any of the Christmas Carol/Scrooge films. Most of them have wonderful Scrooges. Some of my favorties are Alistar Sim, Albert Finney and George C. Scott.

Favorite Carols.

New Yawkers are going to be doing a lot more walking than usual.

Wearing Manolo Blahniks is not recommended.

And with that, I must get ready for work.  A very early day today, to be followed with a trip to the Grandlads' house, to deliver presents that are coming from Santa.

What fun.

Good morning, all!  Yes, the strike is on!  I find the MTA workers' demands excessively high, but I also have to say I have no idea what the final offer they rejected was.  Luckily, I have things to do at home today, and I can actually work at home for the next few days.  I do need to hit the post office this morning before I accomplish anything else.

TOD:  I'm fond of Christmas music, so I have too many things to list.  Elaine Stritch wanted to do a funny song I only heard of this year, "Santa lost a ho," and it's in the "Grandma got run over by a reindeer" mode.

Christmas songs:  
   I'll Be Home for Christmas
   Home for the Holidays
   Suzy Snowflake (one of the dumbest things ever)
   Sleigh Ride
   Winter Wonderland
   Let it Snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Movies?  Elf!

Good Morning!

I'm up!  I'm up!...

And the first bit of news I heard/saw on "The Today Show" this morning was about the Transit Strike in New York City.  Ah, well...  Let's hope it doesn't last long, and I also hope that all 'stranded'  New Yawkers and New Yorkers will be able to get to work today in a timely and safe and "cheap" manner, and/or have very understanding bosses.

As for the Topic of the Day...

"Angels We Have Heard On High" - It's all about that descant for the refrain.
"Away In A Manger" - Both versions.
"The Boar's Head Carol" - I still remember the Yale Whiffenpoofs singing this on "Saturday Night Live".  :)

"The Christmas Song" - Nat King Cole
"Mary, Did You Know" - Kathy Mattea
"It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" - Andy Williams(?) - Well, at least for those funny Staples' back-to-school commercials.  ;D
"Christmas Time Is Here" - I think I have either Patti Austin and/or Dianne Schurr singing this. Oh, and Diana Krall.

...And that's my list for now...  I need some breakfast.

Best Christmas film ever! Period! No argument!  No discussion!  A CHRISTMAS CAROL with the brilliant Alistair Sim, the definitive Scrooge!

George, Firing is what usually happens when an actor doesn't learn his lines, though I've worked in productions where some well-known actors never quite learned their lines.  Not fun.

My favourite story about learning lines.  Ron Liebman was doing Richard III at the Dallas Summer Shakespeare Festival one year.  Every night, right before the show, he would nervously go over and over his opening lines.  One night he turned to a fellow actor backstage as he was doing this and blurted out:  "You know all those little f@#kers who come up to you after a show and asked: 'How d'ya learn all them lines?' Well...THEY'RE RIGHT!"

Rodzinski and I aren't going to work.  His bosses seem pretty understanding and he is salaried so I think he should be okay- as long as the strike ends soon and he is able to get to work to finish everything up so that we can leave on Friday night.

Today is a GMHC day for me and they are super understanding and know that I cannot get 160 blocks (approx 8-9 miles) to work during the strike. The problem is that I am an hourly employee and so I will not earn any money for the shifts I cannot do.  And that is my only source of income right now...

I think that the transit workers union has gone too far, and even though I seriously question the MTA's business practices, it's hard for me to support the workers.  I think they are being very unrealistic with their demands.  As you guys know, I'm training to become a social worker, and when I graduate in May with my masters degree, I will make nowhere near what the transit workers make.  And I will have to pay for a portion of my health coverage, and I will have no hope of retiring at age 55 without a winning lottery ticket.  And that's okay because it's what I chose.

But, tomorrow, I won't be able to get to work at my internship, and I won't be able to tell my children why I'm not there.    Each day that passes where I cannot get to work, I will have less sympathy for the workers.  I'm all for the process of negotiations and striking, but not when the demands have gotten out of control.  I don't want to diminish the job that they do and everyone deserves a fair shake, but these are not 12 year old children losing limbs in a meat factory.

I second that!

I'm back. I was going to go in to work - no, I really was. Four of us in my neighborhood hired a car to drive us in and the company was going to reimburse us, but right about the time I started to head out the door I began to feel really, really nauseated. I'm sad to say that I still DO feel really, really nauseated, so I'm calling in. I don't think I could stand to sit in a car for an hour or more only to get sick in the City with no way to get home.

How much was the car charging for us to go a total of 5 miles? $20 per person...!

I was hoping to drop the keys off to you after I got off work at GMHC today (ha!) but since that's not going to happen and may not happen soon, maybe I could mail them to you at your holiday locale...

Tuesday morning greetings!  Still home on sick leave today, having taken 2 days for yesterday's procedure.  I slept in this morning and plan to do some holiday puttering around the house.

My best vibes are going out to all those affected by the transit strike.
