Daily Threads / 29-JUN-22 Ms Marvel Day
Last post by DiveMilw - Jun 29, 2022, 06:26 pm
I have watched the first three episodes of Ms. Marvel today and I LOVE the show.  It is a delight to watch.  They have only released four episodes so far but I think I'm going to save the fourth one for later.  I'm assuming that if I wait until my "weekend" next Tues/Wed there will be a fifth episode and I will be able to binge two in a row.   ;D

There's a just keep in "Waiting for the Girls Upstairs," but, in my opinion, the one in "Move On" has better choices for a target word after it:

Just keep moving on,
I chose and my world was shaken,
So what?
That choice may have been mistaken,
The choosing was not.
You have to more on.
Daily Threads / 28-JUN-22 My Day Off
Last post by DiveMilw - Jun 28, 2022, 06:22 am
"Tending to his, though, is perfectly fine
It pays for the nurse that is tending to mine
On Sunday
My day off"

I'm working my "Saturday" today.  But I'm doing it for a co-worker who needed the day off.  And I still have my "Sunday" tomorrow.  So my weekend isn't as full of work as Nurse's was.   ;D
Daily Threads / 27 June 2022 Beautiful Monday
Last post by KathyB - Jun 27, 2022, 02:29 pm
This past weekend was lovely, with high temperatures in the 70s (Saturday) and mid-60s (Sunday). Today isn't quite as nice, because it's about 15 degrees warmer, but it's still cooler than it normally is for this time of year, so I'm calling it "beautiful."

I don't have a lot going on today. I am listening to Felix Mendelssohn because about ten years ago, I bought the 99 Most Essential Mendelssohn Masterpieces from Amazon for something like $5, and then I promptly forgot I had it, so I'm rediscovering lots of works. Yesterday I listened to a couple of organ sonatas and some string symphonies. Today I'm listening to "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Songs Without Words." Mendelssohn is my favorite classical composer.

It's also Hockey Sunday! I have a horrible feeling that there is going to be a Hockey Tuesday, and after that, no more Hockey Nights, no matter what the outcome.

I was hoping to go to a free event today but could not get the day off work.  There is a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark followed by a conversation with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Steven Spielberg.  I managed to get a ticket but turned it back in so someone else could attend.  

I'm sure work today will be just a fun as attending that.   8)

Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day, but mine wants to rest up for the hockey game tonight, so she's at home. 

With any luck, there will not be a Hockey Sunday. Downtown is going to be crazy tonight regardless of the outcome. Cross your fingers.
The Work / Re: FOLLIES

Oh boy, oh boy, can that boy foxtrot:

As SJS said of his homage, ultimately cut from Follies, this too is a single dirty joke spun out for three and a half minutes.  But out of context (with no larger story being interrupted, no star requiring a song she can make a fuller meal of), both "...Foxtrot" and this 1919 Berlin bauble are delightful.

Eddie Cantor's original rendition (from Ziegfeld's Follies of 1919, in fact) and Marilyn Monroe's 1954 cover are worth a listen, but Madeleine Kahn -- whose charms as a singer have sometimes escaped me in other contexts -- is in this case my favorite.

Daily Threads / 22 June 2022 Hockey Wednesday
Last post by KathyB - Jun 22, 2022, 11:21 am
I have a one-track mind. There is now a "Hockey Friday" topic coming up, unless, two days from now, someone else starts the daily thread before I have a chance to.

Anyway, I think that maybe I ought to take B. for a walk during the first part of the game again, as the hockey game seems to go better when I'm taking a walk instead of watching.
