Pardon me a second, ChiO.

 

Ha! I'm just "normal" but I'm used to being slightly less than normal.

 

You, normal or slightly less than normal? Ha! The biggest laugh of the day.

 

Okay, now that I'm done laughing. :D

 

A Fritz Lang course! Whoever is in charge of the seminars at Facets has superb taste. Well, almost. One must overlook the Ford nonsense. :) But Lang more than makes up for those missteps.

 

That's quite an interesting grouping of Lang films. They are going from the early to the very late.

 

I could hang in the Widmark class. I have all of those films on DVD with the exception of Road House, which I'll probably get fairly soon.

 

The Sirk and Tarkovsky classes interest me since they are two filmmakers I'm curious about. I'm guessing Tarkovsky may be the class you are most interested in, although a discussion on Pickup on South Street and Night and the City could be worth it.

 

We have a spare room.

 

Where, at the Film Asylum? It will be straightjacket weather in the Windy City when these seminars will be underway. Will there be baseball being played?

Hi there, Rio -- Did you get that wild red rose dress of yours yet? Are you ready for Nick Cave?

 

EEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! I called the place yesterday and they informed me that they found a distributor for the material needed to finish the dress and that it would be shipped within two to three weeks and that they would expedite it so I would have it in time for the wedding. Yay!

 

That's wonderful news! Now you can dance on the sand or at the Sands or both!

 

Am I ready for Nick Cave? think the better question is, is he ready for me?

 

He won't know what hit him. But I'll tattle and tell him it was a trashy vamp with a scimitar.

 

I'm not a big crowds person either, and I'd see a lot more movies in a theater if I knew it was going to be smaller and quiet.

 

It's tough for me to enjoy a movie with a crowd. I don't like a "boxed in" feeling.

 

It's funny, I always though of Seattle as a big city (more so since the early nineties) until I lived in San Francisco. Then you realize how small it is still. And provincial. Still, most days I'd give a lot for Microsoft and Nirvana to have hit the big time is some other city. Almost twenty years after things really started to explode around here, the city still hasn't figured out a way to deal with growth sensibly.

 

Seattle does sound like a "manageable" big city. Pittsburgh is a "big" city that I can take. Philly is a lot tougher.

 

I don't think your house lends itself to themed rooms, I believe it's the crazy inhabitant.

 

Just because I like interesting surroundings....

 

They do sound interesting, I'll give you that.

kilts ...Alan Ladd totally dreamy in them rather than, say, Duke.

 

I think Ladd could be a good candidate for kilt attire--depending on the occassion...but I have to agree about the Duke....not his style for sure....but even Ladd might be limited as to when he could wear one....I could just picture both of them....Shane and Rooster Cogburn...kilted. (kinda scary ain't it??) :-)

Hiya, Super Model T -- I really enjoyed reading about your Driskill dining experience. It sounded like a feast befitting a lovely princess. I guess the lovely princess didn't show, so they gave it to you instead. :P:P

 

The other teenager around here -- Bronxie -- is going to be very jealous.

 

Yes, your mom is the one with good taste in your family.

 

i figured you'd say something to that affect. goodness!

 

It's not even close. She even stood up Coop and Greer. What a gal!

 

You'll really get twirled at this establishment

 

i meant like Mr. Chips does to Mrs. Chips, i didnt mean twirling me so hard that i get dizzy and fall to the ground....what kind of ball would that be? honestly! heehee!

 

You can't beat pizza and dancing on the tables.

 

personally i think you would look handsome in a tux! you HAVE to wear it, frankie. youll make me cry if you dont.

 

Here's your gardenia hanky back. You're gonna need it.

 

by the way, im with loretta, if i aim at something, i hit it! and if i hit something, thats what i aimed at! heehee! so duck and run for cover or else.....b/c im still learning how to hold a gun. heehee!

 

What do you need a gun for when you can just use your gloved hands to strangle guys?

 

oh banana oil! why do you do this to me? first you get me all wired up about to strangle you, but you make me melt in my chair watching Cherry kissing Melody.... how rude! heehee! would youm ake up your mind how you want me to react to you? sarously.

 

Sweet and sour.

Theresa...you are most welcome.

 

I remembered someone posted this link in the cartoon section last year when I was on here...but when I went in and looked, I found the thread, but the link was gone.

 

Fortunately, Barb and April have been tutoring me in the fine art of "youtubian" posting....so I am having way too much fun lately looking stuff up in there. :-)

 

We do seem to be posting around each other...seems you are always on when I am off and vice versa...Maybe we will run into each other sometime...Hope all is well with you. Glad to hear you had a happy B-day.

 

Take Care!

a shame, i seem to find that sometimes too, that links arent there anymore. i hate that. they just vanish into the thin air and then the lepercauns find them and whisk them away to the castle of their dreams........sorry i couldnt resist that line from Valley of Decision. heehee!

 

*Fortunately, Barb and April have been tutoring me in the fine art of "youtubian" posting....so I am having way too much fun lately looking stuff up in there.*

 

i have noticed that, i read those posts. heehee! its okay, i have a blast on youtube, it curious how we can get so excited over the smallest things. heehee! but its so addicting there.

 

*We do seem to be posting around each other...seems you are always on when I am off and vice versa...Maybe we will run into each other sometime...Hope all is well with you. Glad to hear you had a happy B-day.*

 

i will be on tomorrow a lot since i will be at school. in between classes i have time to chat, so if you are here id be glad to have a tete a tete. heehee!

 

thank you for the well wishes!

 

make sure you have sweet dreams full of the duke kissing you in a cemetary in the rain okay. heehee!....or you could even settle for a mud fight with G.W. heehee!

*Here's your gardenia hanky back. You're gonna need it.*

 

sorry, but i just stole all your other clothes and you wont get them back until you wear you tux for me. heehee!

Hey Theresa..just wrapping it up to call it a night--but I saw your post so I stopped to wish you Bonsoir, buenos noches, etc etc... I have to work tomorrow...so won't likely be on here except maybe popping in during the evening from time to time ( I usually check in while I am cooking supper and maybe a few times after the kiddling has gone to bed--depending on what all is going on around here.)

 

Hope your class schedule is going well for you ..study hard. I expect to see you as the first fashion designer/tv chef extraordinaire someday.

 

As far as kissing the Duke...or having a mud fight w/ him...will have to leave that to Maureen O'hara. I don't think I ever thought of him quite that way....and more importantly...my husband might not approve! :-) But I do enjoy the movies though!! :-)

Theresa, I was right there with you at your Driskill dining experience, and I ate EVERTHING, lol. What a feast!

 

Don't listen to old Grimes -- I'm thrilled you had a wonderful time.

 

And no, I'm not a teenager, I only play one on these boards.

I also think that fair-haired guys look better in kilts than darker men.

 

I haven't the vaguest notion why, although I could speculate it's because to me the blondies look more aristocratic somehow.
