Enough of the Mr Icicle

Bedroom this AM: 57°
Outside this AM: 17°
Clothing this AM: Leather pants with long johns underneath. Now that's sexy.

To my extreme displeasure, I slept like shit on a stick last night. I was up at least four times, finally got some solid shut-eye on the couch but lost any advantage I might have received by being up (again) at 6:50 AM, 7:10 AM, and 7:30 AM (ruining the extra sleep I was trying to get to make up for getting to bed at midnight - thanks to needing to finish off the video for Neverwhere so it could be returned to Scarecrow today). I got out of bed to a report of icy conditions outside, but no storm until midnight. I can handle the weather, but I'm exhausted. To top it off I had some kind of allergic reaction to some plants I stuck my hands into on Friday, leaving my hands so swollen that I can't get my rings off and making me scratch my wrists in the middle of the night. At least I have a good reason to be wearing long sleeves.

Last night's Damn Yankees was a blast. (Elliot, who's from Scotland, did not realize the Yankees in question were the baseball team. The idea of a musical about "those damn Americans" is pretty funny ... I wonder what it would be like?) I loved Gwen Verdon as Lola. What's not to love about a devil-sent seductress whose theme song is "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets?" Her dance numbers were a riot - and having the devil make fun of them later was even better. I heard a lot of new songs that I want to work on with Howard. As far as being part of the Bob Fosse movie festival, only having two other guests wasn't much of an inhibitor - it sure made it easy to get enough popcorn and hot cider to go around. (Cathy apparently loves musicals - I'm very excited to find someone who will watch them with me regularly!). Afterwards we discussed what elements were part of the signature "Fosse" style and I read a little about it from the book on Broadway. It will be interesting to see how his playful 1958 seduction choreography develops into the choreography for Sweetest Charity - which is set in a bordello, and was filmed in 1972.

Oh, no! What plant gave you an allergic reaction?

Re: Evil plants
Um ... regular ivy. I think it's because of some weird sensitivity I've developed but now it's triggered by regular ivy now instead of poison ivy ... kind of like Diane's zucchini reaction.

Re: Brrrr
I can't get to Mexico soon enough. Any plans for a trip to Hawaii for you?
