Laughing all the way...

I just returned to the office from giving an exam in my dreaded Financial Applications of Mathematics course (sans Nancy Sinatra, as usual).  Earlier, I had read BK's comments on the movie Where the Truth Lies and realized that I had a copy of Rupert Holmes' novel somewhere around the office.

So while my students were suffering under the lash of compound interest and exponential growth formulas, I was rocking in my seat to the tune of the first two chapters.

And of course, Rupert's writing style is so perfect that it is one aspect of the book that could never be captured on the screen.

Some novels read like screenplays--Rosemary's Baby is one that comes to mind, and presumably that is what the author has his eyes on.  But Rupert's writing is clearly focused on the printed page.

And funny.  Did I mention funny?

DR RLP, on the WB site last night's SMALLVILLE was marked as a repeat.  And when I was flicking through the channels I saw a scene with someone who is no longer alive on the show.  So I guess it was a repeat!

As for last night's IDOL.

.
.
.



I was not surprised that Will and Konnik had the lowest, since they were the weakest.  But I guess I was a bit surprised with the other 2 who left.  While Bucky and Gedeon were my least favorite men, and Ayla and Melissa my least favorite women, I still thought that Gedeon and Ayla would stay.

I think Ayla and Melissa were the weakest of the remaining women. And as DR MattH said, Melissa will surely be the next woman to go. I just for some reason thought Ayla would make top 12.  And same for Gedeon.  His personality just put me off from the beginning. But the judges have sort of liked him, so i thought he might stay for a while.

They say we will get rain!! Hooray!!! I think we are on Day 141 (or thereabouts) of no rain.

I am trying to see if DRs Kerry and MusicGuy would like to plan a spontaneous outing daytrip tomorrow.

DR Laura:

As to your photos of the Cafe on Route 66 yesterday:

A couple of years ago I was researching a script that takes place in Montana, and I found, on the Internet, a Montana restaurant called Road Kill Cafe.

Their slogan:  "From Your Grill to Ours"

I had fish. I figured it was the least likely thing on the menu to have been roadkill.

It's one thing to see the job you're already doing (quite well, by all accounts) advertised internally in the Staff Newsletter.  It's another thing all together to see it posted in the Job Openings portion of the website of a state-wide professional organization.

Can you spell P-A-R-A-N-O-I-D?

Good Afternoon!

Well...  I just received an offer for discounts for this upcoming play... And I have to say the featured artwork is pretty tempting...



I used to know Maxwell Caufield.  Haven't seen him in years.  He's a very nice gentleman.

I've heard from DR Panni about April 9:  brunch, the earlier (10 am or so) the better.  She's busy after 1 pm.   So, does anyone have any suggestions for brunch in the theatre district and how many will be showing up?  This is your social director signalling for help!!!!

Didn't DR MBarnum interview Clay Pot at one time or other?

Interview?  Have?  I always forget the correct verb.

In my CD player:  "Maria Friedman Live" and Lionel Bart & Laurie Johnson's Lock Up Your Daughters (which just came in the mail last night), but first, the two-show CD, Time After Time/Dodsworth:  New Songs from New Musicals.  For a while, I thought that this was the show written by FJL's Skip, but it's not.  He wrote Time and Again, which I don't have.  Anyway, TAT/D has Liz Callaway, Judy Blazer, Walter Charles and Chrstian Borle.  Good singers, all!

In my VCR:  a tape (or tapes) to tape the shows that I can't watch live (as they're being broadcast, that is ;).  I watch more shows on a Friday than any other day of the week!  

In my DVD player:  a whole bunch of brand new, unwatched DVDs.

I love LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS.  Glynis Johns plays Mrs Squeezum in ther film version.

Good Afternoon!

Well, I think I'm going to head out for a bit.  I need to escape from the fruit flies - at least I hope that's all they are - that seemed to have invaded my parents' house over the past few days.  

Laters...

What a horrible thing to call your relatives!

I have Bride and Prejudice in the DVD player at home but haven't seen it yet.


This weekend we are attending the Bat Mitzvah of the Vixter's best friend Emily

We have never been to as temple or a Bat Mitzvah celebration before so we are all quite looking forward to this occasion.

The Vixter is a little overwhelmed by the prospect of sitting through three hours of ceremony, most of which we have been assured, will be in Hebrew, but for Emily she is going to be there.



Lovely time vibes to Vixter and Vixmom for this weekend....

I love LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS.  Glynis Johns plays Mrs Squeezum in ther film version.

But could it be staged today?  It's about as un-PC as one could imagine.  Just like the poor late lamented "Rape" from The Fantasticks.

And you can count on Joe and me as two for brunch--health and stuff permitting.

As Mrs. Squeezum says,

When does the ravishing begin?
You could burst me with a pin,
So much sin I'm holding in.

George - To add to the confusion over time travel musicals, Variety reported the other day that the film SOMEWHERE IN TIME will soon be a musical as well.
