Next I watched THE DYING GAUL. This was a blind purchase knowing and liking the other work by Craig Lucas and the actors in the film including Peter Sarsgaard, Patricia Clarkson, and CAmpbell Scott. It's a thought-provoking piece and one I'll have to see another few times before I'm really sure of my feelings about it.

I watched the deleted scenes, both of which had intimacy between the two men shown rather than merely spoken about as the final film now stands. I think one or both of the scenes involving the two men should have been in the film. There was also an alternate ending which I also preferred to the briefer one actually used.

AMERICAN IDOL was as I suspected, an evening with rather unmemorable music. However, I was very pleased with three of the men: Elliott who once again gave the best rendition of his song of any contestant, Taylor who for the first time really sang and left the "act" on hold, and Ace who I felt had his best-ever vocal. Even Bucky really delivered tonight.

Mandisa was the worst she's been (while still OK), but she showed a real problem in her lower register, Lisa had another off night with shaky high notes, Chris did his same old rock thing which he finally got called on by the judges, and Katharine had a shaky start but an OK windup.

In the calling, the following people had busy signals 50 minutes into voting: Taylor, Bucky (!), and Paris.

If I had to guess, I'd say Lisa would go home, but Ace might be leaving, too.

THE CLOSER had its first season finale tonight (I'm going to miss it until it begins again in June), and while the case wasn't as perplexing as some she's tackled, the emotional highs of the episode more than made up for it. What a great way to end the season!

Guess it's time for me to head for the bedroom.

Enjoy the rest of the evening!

Good night!

Looks like Skip and I are actually going to get to see LESTAT tomorrow (Wed.) night!

Jose - We seem to be about twelve rows back on the aisle that goes down the center, giving us a direct short walk toward the pit.   Does it look like you might be in the pit where you can greet your fans during any part of intermission?

Sorry to hear about your fall. I'm sure you were quite graceful.

DR Sandra had an orchestra concert tonight, so that's where I've been.

I picked up my mom from the airport after she went to Mexico for dental work.  I thought that she only needed one crown, but she told me on the way home that her dentist here said that she needed two crowns and the estimate was approximately $2,000! :o But when she got down there, the dentist said that she needed eight crowns and, since she had had a tooth pulled several years ago, a bridge!  HOWEVER, all of this (eight crowns and a bridge) came to only $2,200!!  It would have been over $9,000!  What a deal!  She is very happy with the work. ;D

I have a question for the rest of the country -- when do you change your clocks? We don't do that here, so I never have to worry about it.

Man, is this a slow night or what?  Are we consciously trying not to break a record or what?  

Tammy and I had a lovely evening - ate some chow then watched No Way To Treat A Lady.

My arm was quite sore earlier, but seems better now, ditto my right leg.  However, in the last two hours, my left foot has been shooting with pain and it's been really difficult to walk on.  I do hope that problem goes away really fast - like tomorrow, or well before show time on Friday.  Now, we've got us an hour for a frenzy.

I did order a cd today from BN but it will take two weeks before it gets to Fargo of Liz Callaway. She really does have a lovely voice.
