Daily Threads / 14-MAR-23 Happy Pie Day!
Last post by DiveMilw - Mar 14, 2023, 06:46 PM
I guess I should have written the date as 3.14 or 3-14.  
The pies were appreciated by my students and the class next door.  I had pie for breakfast.   ;D

Part 1 will now premiere a month sooner then previously announced -- Thanksgiving (instead of Christmas) 2024:

The article also includes complete casting; rehearsals began last summer, and filming has been underway since December in the UK.

It is the day before Pie Day (3.14) as I was reminded while browsing social media.  So, after I woke up from an unplanned nap, I went to the grocery store to buy pie to bring into class tomorrow.  That will be a nice treat.  I got one cherry pie and one apple pie.  Unless my eight students are hungry for pie I'll be sharing with the other classes.  ;D

Your punctuation looks A-1 to me.

The snub-nosed, spit-curled pink babies were from "Who Could Be Blue?/Little White House", originally sung by one of the young Follies couples, IIRC, as a sticky-sentimental first pass at what later became the perkier, more upbeat four-part counterpoint of "You're Gonna Love Tomorrow"/"Love Will See Us Through".

After being cut from Follies, the original duet was later featured in the 1980 revue Marry Me A Little and preserved on its original cast album.  Later still, that track was included on the 1985 multi-disc compilation A Collector's Sondheim, which is where I became aware of it.

In addition to losing an hour of sleep, I went to Safeway to get some Haagen-Dazs ice cream bars, and they were out of all of them. I then went to Home Depot to get some LED replacements for fluorescent tubes, and they don't work. They came with some extra wiring, so apparently I need to easily rewire the ballast to have these tubes work. "Easy" being a judgment call. There is absolutely no light in the bathroom when the fixture is off, so I'm already thinking it won't be as easy as it says it is, and I should find either (a) some replacement bulbs that don't require rewiring, or (b) a professional to come and do the easy job of rewiring.

I don't even know where that last lyric comes from.  :-[

QFM, so I don't know if I'm getting all the punctuation accurate:

I've some business
With her mother.
See, it's business!
Oh, no doubt!
But the business 
With her mother
Would be hardly the business I'd worry about.

NYT piece, a decent though not wildly-informative overview of the new production (currently about halfway through previews, opening March 26):
