"Saturday is a Special Day" or "Some doings"

Sitting in my room with some lamps and a few candles flickering. Soundtrack Saturdays is playing. One of my not so guilty pleasures, it runs from 8:00 to midnight and plays Broadway and TV showtunes. Most of the selections are pretty safe...I mean it is for a broad Utah audience so plenty of Rodgers and Hammerstein and anything before 1960. You rarely get anything slightly edgy or complex...and every week there are a zillion selections from Phantom, Miss Saigon and Wicked. Sigh.

Tonight though they did actually play "A Little Priest" from Sweeney Tood though so props to them for that. I prefer the Angela Lansbury/George Hearn combo though...they were actually crazy and insane. Patti LuPone...as BJ puts it so well...plays Mrs. Lovett as if she's too in love with her own voice. You're not *scared* of her at all.

Anyway, despite my carping, I do enjoy Soundtrack Saturdays especially as I sit and work on my storyboards. It's finally starting to coalesce in my mind. Got a lot of revisions to do to the story but it's all in the name of improvement. As Ellen would constantly say, "It's good story. It's not a *great* story yet." Sigh.

For what I want...it's got to be terrific!

It has been a productive day. Blitz cleaned my place (didn't vacuum, boo,) ran a few errands (toilet paper is a necessity) and later went to F'ton to see the padres and work on my niece's birthday present. Thanks much to my mom for her pattern and sewing machine and help. I'm awfully proud of them. I am the best aunt EVAAAH!!!

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
