I followed this with A CHRISTMAS STORY. Not wanting to watch the heavily infested with commercials TBS showing, I took my anamorphic DVD from the shelf and enjoyed seeing it on the larger TV for the first time. Always grand entertainment, and I got as big a kick out of Darrin McGavin as I always have.

This turned out to be a very violence-oriented Christmas for Skip.  Santa (whom I unfortunately can this year play without the stomach padding, although with the Christmas pudding) brought him a large electronic food slicer and the third and fourth seasons of "24" - among some other less bloody goodies.

After watching those two holiday films, I was in the mood for a mystery, so I took off the shelf AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, the 1945 Rene Clair version.

This film, which has been in the public domain for years, is in desperate need of an overhaul. I'm sure the releasing company used a videotape master for this DVD, and it was done early in the DVD process. Thus, sharpness is sometimes lacking, sound doesn't always quite synch up with lip movements, and there are speckles and spotting present.

The mystery is so fabulous, however, that none of this matters. I watched through the first three murders, and then saved my place to begin there tomorrow.

I'm sure I'll be getting to WHITE CHRISTMAS tomorrow.

Kiefer Sutherland says CHRISTMAS to me, too!!!

And they play excerpts from the Broadway cast album during the show! Lucy bops along in the box seat saying something like, "There's nothing like a Frank Loesser show tune."

I haven't seen this episode in many years.

I on the other hand got a veritable cocoaphany of chocolate.  I'm afraid TCB would have a field day with this, but I got a box of the special "G" line of Godiva high-end flavors (I just peeked in the online catalog and they average about $2 per chocolate, let's say they're just "for an occasion" as my Mom would say).  Also in the array were the "POP" flavors, which literally crackle in your mouth when you eat them (before TCB says it, yes, it feels like there's  a party in your mouth as you eat them) - I have a  feeling they're going to find out years from now that they cause all sorts of digestive problems, but until then, they are exciting.

Hi DR LAURA how is the weather out there?

Please don't all hate me for saying this, but today it was very warm. I was setting up luminarias wishing I had on a pair of shorts -- it was about 80F here.

The Spirit of the Lord has entered me through the Divine Conduit of JR's poem.  Here is the setting He has provided me (and, yea, verily, truly, all of us--it's His gift to all of us to cherish forever or at least tonight):

Well, I think I'm going to head toward my bedroom area, too. Not expecting any chimney visitors here either, but one never knows.

Hope everyone has a good rest of the evening.

More tomorrow.

And so that everyone can learn their parts for our festive sing-along, here's a rudimentary MIDI file:

Also got the updated version of the Foster Hirsch book on Harold Prince, apparently autographed (although not especially for me) by Messrs. Prince and Hirsch.  It actually seems to go into detail about BOUNCE, which should be fascinating.

BK, I'm sure that if you insist your party guests separate into four rooms to work on sectional rehearsals for "Ham", your party will be the biggest hit EVAH!!!

Skip's baking an apple pie and glazing a ham (a sort-of MAME reference).  

And playing with his brand new slicer.  The blade really seems to be chaste, or is it chased, silver (a SWEENEY reference).

Jose, could you work up an accompaniment for Larry to develop orchestration from?  The song is basically in C (with the exception of the particularly nuanced cadence, which I'm sure you'll notice and appreciate), so I'm thinking piano should be in F#m.  Thoughts....?

I am so tired!  Just came back from my aunt's house where we had the most delicious Christmas eve dinner ever.  She hurt her foot. So we ordered in sushi and Chinese food.  It was so good. And between the sushi and the shrimp wonton appetizers I was full before the main course even started.

It was Megan's first Xmas, and she got a few of her gifts tonight, including a baby cd that has songs all with her name sung in them. It is so cute.

I was too full to eat my Rockaberry toblerone cheesepie.  But I got it to go.  And I believe I also have some chinese food that my aunt put in a bag for me.

Tomorrow I will go to my sister's place and we will give Megan her gifts. I did not bring my gift to her tonight, since it is big.  But I did bring my sister's gift basket, which included a beautiful mug with 2 color photos of hte baby and on one side it said "i love my mommy". Too cute.

Party is beginning to wind down - I've indeed been the host with the most on the ball.  We had about fifteen people and the food has been consumed and everyone was most happy.

DR Danise, re: your mom and the phone.  Would it be possible to make her a sign in big letters that says "PRESS RED TO ANSWER".  Then once you have her on the phone you can remind her to press the green button to answer.

Glad you're feeling better.
