"Everybody Says Do"?  Is that from the same show as "Anyone Can Wassel"?

PAGE THREE DANCE:



Rocking around the Christmas Tree
at the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Ev'ry couple tries to stop

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing "Let's be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly"
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
and we'll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing "Let's be jolly;
Deck the halls with boughs of holly"
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

Good Afternoon!

My workout was a bit of a struggle, but I muddled through.  I think the two sets of push-ups yesterday sort of tired me out for today.  Or I could have just been tired in general.  In any case, it was a good sweat.

Enjoyed the last episode of CSI: NY on the first disc of the boxed set. This one had to do with someone who had placed a skeleton on top of an NYC tour bus which certainly gave the folks from Pokipsie something to write home about!

Several years ago I was part of a Christmas program at the local community theater. It was done in the lobby of the theater with tables and chairs for patrons and hot cider served, a fire blazing in the fireplace, etc.

One of the songs I was given to sing was "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," but the music director for this event had never heard of the song, didn't much like it, and insisted on an absurdly fast tempo (I assume to get it over with). I begged the director to just drop the song rather than my doing a triple-time bastardized version of it, but it was one of his favorite songs, so in it stayed. I could NOT get that woman to slow down the music. One of the most frustrating experiences I've ever had connecting to performing.

I then watched FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. All of the interiors look excellent on this very early DVD transfer, but not of the location stuff is particularly sharp or vibrant looking. I expect the source material is lacking. The sound was a good, sharp mono, but I'm wondering when the high def versions of these come out if Sony won't have fitted the early Bonds with surround sound mixes in addition to the original mono tracks. I know I heard DR. NO on one of the Encores channels with a new surround mix.

And now we've been getting the house ready for our Christmas Eve dinner. Dusting, vacuuming, etc.  My mom finally got the rest of her Christmas decorations up.  She was running late this year; she usually has most of that done by the week after Thanksgiving.  And I went ahead and set up my small Christmas Tree (Martha Stewart) set-up down in the basement.  Very festive.

And now I need to clean myself up for the evening's festivities.

And as good as FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE is, I still prefer GOLDFINGER for my Connery/Bond fix.

...And I have to say the weather outside is most definitely NOT frightful.  It practically feels unseasonable warm.  Alas, it's supposed to rain tomorrow - no White Christmas - but if the warming trend continues, I may venture out for a run in the next couple of days.

I've been chopping away for the last hour, and now all ingredients that needed chopping are chopped.  It smell strongly of garlic in the kitchen environment, what with the ten cloves I just chopped.

Soon I will be off to play the first of several Christmas Eve services.  I hope everyone has a great evening and I'll try to check in later to see what's happenin' in the City of Studio (not to mention elsewhere in the wide, wild HHW universe).

So far our acclimation to  Kentucky has rather pleasant.  Last night we were invited to go see FULLY COMMITTED at Actor's Guild, the local professional theatre in Lexington.  The show was fun and we were treated with great effusion and enthusiasm by management who have invited me to be on their board.  

After that, we went for a lovely late dinner at Buddies in our old stomping grounds near the University.  The restaurant used to be The Saratoga where we used to have long liquid lunches with our theatre professor and mentor, Charles Dickens.  The new place is quite nice as well.  They were about to stop serving but made an exception of us.  It was a lovely evening and the twenty minute drive into or out of Lexington either along I-75 or the back roads is absolutely stress-free with no-hassle, minimal traffic.  

Today we went to one of the big shopping areas, Hamburg Place, where my friend's newest Liquor Barn recently opened and stocked up for tonight and tomorrow as we plan to burrow in for the holidays.  Again, traffic and stress minimal.  My friend introduced me to the Arts editor of the local paper who also happened to be in the store.  

Folks are quite polite and sweet here.  Yesterday a heating man came out and got my downstairs heater running properly and when I asked how much, he just gave me his card and said: "Call me when you've got a real problem."  Lots of courtesy and kindness.

I suspect our blood pressures have dropped considerably in the two weeks we've been here.

Have a great Christmas Do, BK, we'l miss it!

Dr Jose, I ran out of time this week for the 4th cookie.  So I ended up with Madelines, Surprise Cookies, and Lime Meltaways... and homemade marshmellows.  Everything turn out great.

May I for one simply say you look MAHvelous for being over 100 years old (give or take a decade)!   ;D

Spaghetti sauce is merrily cooking away, and the home environment is clean and tidy.  Shortly I shall shave and shower and then all will be ready.

French Jingle Bells!

VIVE LE VENT

Vive le vent, vive le vent,
vive le vent d'hiver
qui s'en va sifflant, soufflant
dans les grands sapins verts.
Vive le temps, vive le temps,
vive le temps d'hiver
boules de neige et jour de l'an
et bonne année grand-mère.

Sur le long chemin
tout blanc de neige blanche
un vieux monsieur s'avance avec
sa canne dans la main
et tout là-haut le vent qui siffle
dans les branches puis souffle
la romance qu'il chantait petit enfant
      

Joyeux joyeux Noël aux mille
bougies qu'enchantent vers le ciel
les cloches de la nuit.
Vive le vent, vive le vent,
Vive le vent d'hiver qui rapporte aux vieux enfants un souvenir d'hier.


Et le vieux monsieur descend
vers le village
C'est l'heure où tout est sage
et l'ombre danse au coin du feu
Mais dans chaque maison
il flotte un air de fête partout
la table est prête et l'on entend
la même chanson
